Past Perfect has been an anomily in Nashville for the past year. A Chicago-style, Victorian-era bar that does many things decent but few well. The menu needs some serious help, and while the food is by no means bad, it lacks any signature. Earlier this year I would have recomended ordering off their features menu, but since their Chef left, the food quality has suffered some. The staff is up and down. Some nights attentive and on the spot, other nights it seems to take forever for service of any sort. Monday nights, I recomend staying away. The bartenders are rude, and seem interested in only taking care of their friends. Rick, a manager of some sort (I never was able to find out definitively), has been rude or curt on many occasions. Also, the prices are a bit high for the quality. Don't get me wrong, it's a solid bar, with great ambience and a good (overall) staff. The food service is prompt, even though the menu needs help. It's a bar/restaurant that seems in need of a solid direction, but I'll keep coming back until they get it perfect.
Pros: Ambience, specials/features/Matt (one of the owners)
Cons: Parking, service, food quality/menu items
