    Love the ambiance; however my dish was not that appetizing and my guest reported that her sea bass was rather tough and overcooked. The bread is divine and the dessert was splendid; however this restaurant needs to work on perfecting or expanding the entrees.

Your feedback has been shared with kitchen management team. We hope that you'll give us another chance to prove ourselves. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the near future.

    Service was outstanding, from door person at hotel, to greeter at host station to our server. Food was very good. Loved the bread. Cauliflower steak was the best deal both in food quality and price. Had salmon, that initially was returned because it was too dry. Candidly, King Salmon, can be dry, so when they replaced with better cooked salmon it was much better, but still not best salmon I have ever had. I thought the pricing on the al cart Salmon was steep. We had great window view table and were treated exceptionally.

    Blue AsterResponded on 27 July 2022Dear wabcol, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our service and the cauliflower steak. We appreciate your comments regarding the value of the salmon. It has been shared with kitchen team. We aim to provide all of our guests with a high-quality experience, and we hope to see you again in the near future. Best, Huu Thai, Assistant General Manager

    Seeing that the Conrad hotel is only two weeks Old, this restaurant was so great. We had the tomato burrata salad, the scallop ceviche, the pimento cheese fondue with hush puppies, and the lamb chops with venison Ajou. It was all amazing. Our server Karen was phenomenal and knowledgeable and it was a great experience!

    Blue AsterResponded on 18 July 2022Dear SaraH, Thank you for the great review! We strongly believe that fresh, high-quality ingredients make all the difference, and we agree that you can’t go wrong with tomato burrata salad, the scallop ceviche, cheese fondue with hush puppies and the lamp chops. We appreciate your feedback as we strive to create a wonderful experience for each guest. We will share your comment with Karen. We are looking forward to welcoming back to Blue Aster.

    Open about two weeks. It appears to still be a shakedown cruise. Space is beautiful, inside the lobby of the new Conrad hotel. Food was quite variable. The table shared the vegetable platter which was the high point of the meal. Then three of us had seafood. Two had the scallops and found the entree portion skimpy ( four scallops for $44). One of us found them too salty. The lobster pasta was very tasty and a decent portion. The fourth ordered a steak medium rare ($60) and it came overly well done. He sent it back and it was replaced with a new one, correctly prepared but of course the rhythm of the meal was thrown off. To their credit, the waitstaff handled things as well as possible,providing the steak at no cost , with complementary desserts and a bottle of wine. Kudos to everyone for the generous recovery. So overall, a mixed review.

    Blue AsterResponded on 18 July 2022Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed our Nashville market vegetable platter and the Thermidor lobster pasta. We regret to hear that you were disappointed with the value of our scallops and steak. Your feedback has been shared with the kitchen team in order to improve our quality of foods. We aim to provide all of our guests with a high-quality experience, and we hope to see you again in the near future. Best, Huu Thai, Assistant General Manager

    Aster Blue is a lovely inviting restaurant. We love fresh seafood and they delivered! Our oysters , prawns, and sea bass were perfect. Our servers gave great attention to detail. It has a wonderful -posh atmosphere to dine in. We will be back! It’s a great addition to Nashville and easy access off West End.

    We were visiting Nashville for the weekend and fell in love with the top notch food and service at the Blue Aster restaurant in the recently opened Conrad Nashville hotel. Shout out to Ashley (our server) for amazing service and suggestions. We will be back!

    I think it was only the third night open so not crowded at all. Food was outstanding. Gem Caesar salad was super fresh and crisp. We both had scallop entree as the king crab pasta was sold out already. Scallops were cooked perfectly, maybe a tad salty, and the asparagus was a nice addition. Good wine selection and cocktails were spot on. Will definitely return.
