Sorry, guys, but this place was a disappointment. The food was pretty good but way overpriced. Pros: friendly staff Cons: overpriced

An Excellent Fine Dining Experience in Germantown 7/6/2011

I just started eating at Equestria within the past month or so, and my wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. On our second time there, our server talked about some of the changes they've made to improve the dining experience there. It seemed odd to us at the time, since we were new customers. But now that I've read some of the negative reviews here, it makes more sense. It seems that they've taken the bad reviews into consideration and have tried hard to make improvements. And I think they've succeeded. Our experience there was excellent. So if you had a bad experience there in the past, you might give it another try. more

Why are there reviews up here from 2004? Let's get current! 2/2/2011

I live in the area and eat at Equestria on a regular basis. I love being able to go and have 2 appetizers for dinner. Sometimes we will go and have an appetizer and split an entree if we aren't that hungry. The service is wonderful, very attentive and usually pretty quick. I also like how the menu changes for the seasons using their fresh grown ingredients. My food has always been fresh and delicious, but if you werent satisfied with yur meal, you should have mentioned it to the waiter or manager and they would have fixed it on the spot, like any quality restaurant. Go sit at the bar an order for a change or in the spring, sit outdise on the deck, it is fabulous! I more

Awful Food!!! 10/23/2010

Equestria provided the worst dining experience of my life. \r The food was greasy, not well seasoned, and cuts of meat sub par. The $9.00 appetizer consisted of 2 small (1 inch) fried goat cheese puffs. The $10.00 mushroom appetizer was nothing more than mushrooms and grits floating in a small bowl of something that tasted like maple syrup (disgusting). Our steaks were something you would get at Chili's or other lower priced chain restaurants. The $$$ dining tab was truly not deserved especially when compared to other fine restaurants in Memphis and its surrounding areas. You will find a much better dining experience anywhere else.\r more

I was disappointed 7/15/2010

Sorry, guys, but this place was a disappointment. The food was pretty good but way overpriced. Pros: friendly staff Cons: overpriced more

Locomotion 9/24/2008

On top of the garden that is in service and the animals they keep, a few new chefs are working there and the menu has changed.So check it out. Before you post on any restaurant in the future, think about the people you are disrespecting by slandering their work. These are Americans working hard for a living, fueling the economy that is so delicate in the last decade. Lest we not forget what this country is all about. Pros: unique menu and fresh farm product Cons: too close to train tracks more

worst food anywhere, avoid at all cost, staff was friendly and that is the only good thing about the whole place 2/22/2008

I was very unhappy with this place and would not recommend it to anyone. The food was terrible,over priced, small portions, went home hungry. I could feed a small family for a week for what I paid for 1 meal and get better food. The crab cakes were only the size of a half dollar and very expensive and not that tasty. The cheesecake was the best thing I ate, but over priced for what you get. Had a beef appetizer with artichokes and bread crumbs with a fancy name, but the beef pieces were burned up along with the bread crumbs, not very good. more

Good Germantown Location 6/21/2007

We just moved here, it's hard to find great food in the suburbs, several new friends suggested (highly) this place- WHOA, I don't know how they think this stuff is great food at all, it's high priced for the grade of food, I think they may try hard but they don't cut it in our book, the menu is diverse but the quality is just not there at all, we can't figure out why there aren't better truly upscale restaurants in an area with expensive to extremely expensive houses ! all there seems to be is hamburger and bbq joints, pub food and Chili's junk- we moved from FL with my job and so far this experience is disappointing (food)- one of my friends and co-workers suggested we go downtown to eat ! WHAT ? travel to the center city for a decent meal ?? I can't think of any suburb in the US that a man with his wife has to go back to a downtown area in a large city to have a decent dining experience !! that is too bizarre, but we are still looking here around our suburb of Germantown for decent food ! so far NOTHING Pros: location is accessible and close to where we live Cons: geez, the food is disappointing to say the least, and it's not cheap !! more

There should be truth in advertising AND comments !! 4/19/2007

The truth about this place centers on the need to be perceived as a polished, upscale restaurant when it simply fails the test on many fronts.\r \r Second beware of self promotion. The reviewer just below, listed as 'mps901' is in FACT , MARRIED to the owner and is the owner, Michelle P. Scott ('mps""...901=area code for W TN).\r \r This is a cheap and insulting tactic to prop up a mediocre dining 'experience'. It's also bogus.\r \r Truly great restaurants don't have to have their own owners brag about their establishments on line or anywhere else.\r \r The food there, in my humble opinion, is nothing special, although Memphis does not have much to brag about in upscale, suburban independent restaurants in the first place.\r \r A little research was in order HERE to let the readers of this site that 'mps901' is REVIEWING HER OWN establishment in a positive manner.\r \r Shameful Pros: Nice decor, wine list, Cons: The quality of ingredients, bad attitudes more

This place is excellent, you won't be sorry. 2/23/2007

I just do not understand these reviews. We go there often and all of our friends. We know fine dining and great food and they have it. I guess everyone has the right to thier opinion but Chef Kevin really does a great job. The restaurant is locally owned and you can tell that the owners really care about the quality of the food. Thier fish is the best. GIve it a try you will not be dissapointed. more

Great Location 9/24/2006

for a train depot maybe !\r \r How does this place stay in business. It has reinvented itself a couple of times and I'll give them credit for changing the menu a couple of times, but if you start with inferior ingredients it does not matter how many time the menu gets updated. It's a great suburban location in Germantown but a little too close to freight train tracks for an upscale or wannabe upscale restaurant and lounge. I'd scrap the concept and try something that seems to work in Memphis TN, maybe another Mexican joint or a BBQ shack. Another suggestion is to keep the owners themselves from writing positive reviews of their own restaurant on this and other sites (e.g. cs901 and michelle scott, the married owners) That seems a bit underhanded and weird. Pros: great location except the railroad tracks Cons: quality of foos esp. the steaks and seafood ! more

It's questionable 7/12/2006

particularly when one of the owners (just below) has to rate his own restaurant with a great rating, that's too bad but it's telling isn't it ? more

Could be a breathe of fresh air...but 6/24/2006

It's not unfortunately, same ole junk, this time just dressed up junk, my steak was rather tough and the crab appetizer (I think it was crab, but not really sure) was questionable. I can't say this is good stuff but the location is also kind of strange next to a railroad track Pros: outside the city Cons: tough steak more

The Best 11/28/2005

The best food and service,Chef Kevin is one of the finest in the city. Pros: good value, great quality, chef Cons: location, diner only, closed mon & sun more

NOTHING but HYPE 11/4/2005

We were told that this was one of the best restaurants in the Memphis area ! WHAT ?? Our service was amateurish and the fish quality was worse than Kroger Supermarket. Something is way wrong here. The wine list was adequate but a bit overpriced. Pros: nothing Cons: quality of fish, quality of steak, price/value ratio more

IT'S BEEN A WHILE, BUT 10/25/2005

I used to go here quite a bit. The menu changed a bit. I don't know who they think they are fooling - they 'say' the steak is Prime Grade, on the menu (no where on it) do they make a similar written claim. I'm a steak eater- I don't like to be lied to - our server said that 'the chef cuts and selects his own meat' ! so what? if it's not graded true USDA prime by his supplier, the chef doesn't know WHAT grade he's actually getting and our steaks were not that great for the price. The service was very amateurish. New chef or not, I found the food kinda bogus. I can't recommend it more

Riding a ""DEAD HORSE""? 2/3/2005

From Sarasota, everyone suggested that I must try well.. I have. While reticent to judge the quality of any rest. on three visits experience was lacking and frankly, a bit over-rated based on my experience. One good thing is the's very well done. Steak advertised as prime , but I found it lacking in tenderness, it was chewy. CrabcakeS actually were a singular cake -it was dry.Salads lacked crispness associated with nice presentation.Bread served cold .Service immature-more indicative of chain theme restaurant not a fine dining one.Mgr handled complaint extremely poorly-seems far too confrontational in re an alleged fine dining, touted Mem restaurant. B'tender on duty seemed out of element-more suited to Chili's clientele. Still trying to locate above average Mem that reflects informed taste. Had above average at an east side rest Jarrett's Pros: w/help could be good, located in suburbia, decent wine selection Cons: unprofessional..., arrogant mediocrity more

Horse meat is better 1/11/2005

Steak was tough as nails-and over priced. My wife has fish and it was a bit overcooked and smelly more

My Favorite Restaurant 7/19/2004

Equestria Restaurant is a hidden gem, I only wish I had found out about it sooner. The steaks are better than any other of Memphis' fine dining steak restaurants serve. I was delightfully suprised. Their seafood dishes are so fresh and unique, this is definently my favorite restaurant! Pros: Prime Steaks, Awesome Seafood, Great Desserts more


Chef is no longer there it seems?. Too bad....The food definitely suffered....horrifically tough steak and seafood not fresh at all Pros: near railroad Cons: , nasty attitudes, steak NOT prime 1 more
