This is where we go for "special" occasions! The food is locally superior to all else. The setting is charming although a big "too cozy" at times ... small rooms. The ambiance, however, is romantic and tasteful. We never hesitate to recommend Emil's to the many guests at our local BnB. The servers are a notch above and always polite.... More

Emil's is a reliable choice for a nice meal on the weekend. They have a fairly standard menu of classic French dishes that they rotate through. I wish they had a little more variety and a more expansive schedule, but they have good food, a nice wine selection and the best service in town.

My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Emil's. We had a nice romantic dinner. I had their chicken which was mouth watering. My husband had their fish which he enjoyed. The owners are very kind and take pride in their business. Great place for date night.

The restaurant is located in an old home and has a charm about it. The food was good, but the prices surpass the taste of the food. The meal had a good flavor, but a single crab cake was $12 and substituting a side will cost more. The chicken Daniel was a very small portion for the price.

Nice atmosphere in a cozy house was a great setting for a group dinner. We had several appetizers. The chips with bleu cheese dip was pretty good. The crab cake was a little small compared to other places I've been. The best appetizer we had was the fried shrimp. My favorite salad is a wedge salad but this one didn't... More

This restaurant was wonderful and the atmosphere was so inviting! The $8 lunch special was absolutely fantastic and the service was excellent. Never expected this when my friend said we were going for lunch in a restaurant in a restored old home. One of my better lunches out ever! Hope to go back!

Emil's Bistro is a fabulous restaurant with a lovely atmosphere in a restored early 1900's home of the former Tullahoma mayor. The menu offers something for all. The decor is beautiful with delightful art. The French chef shows great care in preparing and presenting delicious dishes.

We were attracted by the No. 1 rating enjoyed by this restaurant and by this stage of our trip were looking for something a little special. This is a traditional family-run restaurant and whilst the service wasn't brilliant and it is not cheap, from an overall standpoint it was very good. We would certainly return if we are ever in...

We loved our meal and enjoyed talking with the manager that is from our area in Mississippi. Had the Chicken Daniel and a cup of Gouda and puréed red potato soup, and it did not disappoint!
