Lunch was excellent. The atmosphere is nice, the service was superb and the wine and food were terrific. Very reasonable prices. Parking is a bit tight, but they control it well.

Yesterday we got a treat by going to the Yellow Porch. Yesterday my sister and I went for lunch, I got my usual Penne Bettola and my sister got the Murphy's Greek Linguini. Both were super delicious. I love the penne with the spicy vodka cream sauce. They also have a chicken salad wrap with smashed potato salad that is... More

Went back for more of their great celery blue cheese soup and Bettola Pasta for lunch. It was great, very consistent restaurant, which I like. We have never been disappointed. Took home a piece of carrot cake for dessert. It was deleicious.

Tucked away between a gas station and a street front mall, this little slice of heaven is worth finding. Even though they didn't have a separate gluten free menu the waiter was happy to tell me what I could eat. The lamb and duck were both excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable and attentive and made an mean Hemingway daiquiri. My... More

Wow! What a beautiful night with coworkers! Our waiter was Todd and he was flawless in our group of 12! Every selection of the wine, entree, soup, salad and dessert did not disappoint! Beet salad, tomato soup, delightful. Small and quaint with eclectic vibe. Can't wait to go back!

Creative menu, attentive service, one of my favorite go-to restaurants in Nashville. Daily specials based on what's available locally. Good for lunch and dinner. Definitely recommend reservations for dinner, especially on weekends.

We recently had our first visit to The Yellow Porch and absolutely loved it. It is a small "homey" type restaurant and a great place to celebrate a special occasion. I started my meal with the Baby Green Salad with Garlic Bleu cheese dressing. I am a huge fan of both garlic and bleu cheese, so this was a great... More

I'm not saying the Yellow Porch is a "forgotten restaurant", because it's not and it's consistently popular. But it seems like it gets lost sometimes in the clutter of all the new "hot openings" around Nashville. They always provide great food and service. Had the duck and it was tender and very flavorful. My wife always gets the Celery Soup,... More

I was at the Yellow Porch when we first moved here back in early 2000 and I was not impressed with the food preparation or service and have not returned until last night. Based on the recommendation to return by a friend of mine who is a professional Chef, we returned. I don't know if the establishment has since changed... More
