Because The Catbird Seat is a unique dining experience unlike others in Nashville, there are a few Things to Know when coming to dine with us.

Below are questions often asked by our guests.

When are you open?
We are open for dinner service Wednesday - Saturday beginning at 5:30pm. We are not open for lunch. Variations of our schedule may occur due to the small staff at The Catbird Seat.

How do I make a reservation?
Reservations can be made 30 days in advance of the dining date. This can be done on our reservation website by selecting the reservations options. From there you will click "book my experience" and check the calendar in accordance with your desired date and party size. All reservations open at 12:00AM thirty days in advance of the reservation date.

Can I get a refund once purchased?
No, we do not offer refunds. Just like a sporting event, concert or theater, ticket sales are final.

Why pre-paid reservations?
The Catbird Seat is a very small space with limited seating. Pre-paid reservations allow us to anticipate who is coming in and to give guests an all-encompassing experience for the best price possible.
