Darfon's is a great mid-range restaurant- I dare say it's as upscale as J. Alexanders and such, the food is perhaps better, it has a very nice outdoor dining area, its convenient, and most importantly, it's far less crowded than the restaurants in the more "mainstream" areas of Nashville like West End, Downtown, etc. It's very quiet and has a nice atmosphere. I've also never run into a wait to be seated- even on a Saturday night. Great restaurant for a casual date. I love their salmon too.
If you want to get out of the crowd and have a nice, intimate meal with someone you love, check out Darfon's!
