Diner Reviews
  • "This is now my all time favorite dining spot. The food was perfect and amazing. They offer a great selection. Ambiance was amazing. Service was amazing!"

  • "If it wasn't evident, get the steak. Preferably, get the wagyu or the bone-in steaks. As for sides, the creamed corn brulee is fantastic, and for starters, the house bacon is magnificent."

  • "We've been here twice now and both times did not disappoint. The first time was a year ago on our honeymoon and we loved it so much we came back again and it's the first place we made reservations for. I highly recommend the house made bacon with maple cotton candy and the risotto tots. I don't think you can go wrong with any steak but I've had both the wagyu strip and wagyu filet and they were melt in your mouth tender and perfectly cooked. My husband had the progression of strip both times and loved it."

  • "Nice ambiance, terrible terrible service at the bar and table. Soba noodle veggie entree deplorable. Filet ordered as recommended but overcooked. . Side dishes were very good. The place has lots of hype and lovely vibe, but will never receive my business again. Others have raved about it so they must get it right sometimes but we were all thoroughly disappointed."

  • "I travel frequently and this is by far one of the best steak restaurants. Expect to pay for excellent food and service. Highly recommend."

  • "Make sure you ask fro bread at first so you can get some with your salad. Even though their bread isn't the best. Steaks are good, but I like Bob's steaks the best. All the sides items are really good here. That's where other steak places fall down. But they really should just give you bread with salads."

  • "... tactics to keep the tourists away? (to leave more seating for the locals?) didn't work. The concierge at the hotel corrected our English and George, the amazing former NBA basketball coach turned golf cart driver, blugrassbband connesseur and ambassador for the city of Nashville helped us find the hidden 12th street, which for those of you new to town is not exactly between 11th and 13th. There we met a bevy of beautiful and brazen hostesses and JR our waiter whose company candor and camaraderie was the highlight of our night. The food was spectacle but overshadowed by the ambience, the service and the fact that we were in the amazing Music City! Five stars!"

  • "The already apathetic waiter walked off in the middle of our first guest's order. No explanation - just wandered slowly to another table where he interrupted the busy assistant waiter. He came back, asked for our order again and, yes, walked off again before the first order was complete. Left the room. No apology, no reason given; just walked away in the middle of a "six ounce filet, medium". A call to the manager has gone unreturned for a week. Four people well over $400. Service staff dumped a bottle of wine onto the table and a freshly delivered entree. We were not remotely concerned. A simple accident. We appreciated the free desserts and didn't miss the wine. Great steaks; some great sides and some oddities, and under-cooked fish."

  • "he Wagyu Filet was extremely tender and cream spinach side is great!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We have been at Kayne Prime many times but lately the staff seems to have little interest in details. Drink orders were extremely slow and for no apparent reason, they were no busier than usual. Cleanliness has also slipped, one of the non-alcoholic beverage glasses was visibly dirty, the server who filled the glass obviously never even looked at it. If he had he would have immediately discarded the glass for a clean one. When we dine at Kayne Prime we expect superior food quality and at least above average service. The food was still good but the rest of the experience was very disappointing. It was obvious the servers realized they were doing a poor job because they brought popovers "on the house", presumably as an apology."

  • "Another gem for downtown Nashville.... if you want a steak they will not disappoint. Very nice wine list and service was as expected. Took our son here for and end of the semester get together and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "This restaurant was fantastic! We were there for almost 3 hours and totally lost track of time. The owner/manager was a wonderful man who stopped by our table twice to check in on us! Will definitely be back the next time I am in Nashville!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "By far the best food, atmosphere and service in Nashville! Our server Tylor Trobough is one of the very best around!! I recommend to everyone I know!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The perfect place to go. We were there for a milestone birthday dinner and it exceeded our expectations --- which were very high. Every course was delicious and out of the ordinary. The service was very good. Attentive, but not pushy or overbearing. It's pricey, so save this one for that special occassion."

  • "Great place for our 15th anniversary! Food was amazing and the service was great!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We had another wonderful meal at Kayne Prime. We usually sit at the bar because we love the view of the old train station. However, we have had constant issues with the bar service and our food arriving cold. This time we reserved a table and were seated in the section that also has the train station view. This is definitely the way to go as the service was so much better and we got a hot meal. The food at Kayne is always enjoyable; hot or cold!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I visited Kayne Prime this week and it was fabulous! I travel all over the country for work each week and always have a recommendation from the locals but this is at the TOP. Homemade Bacon with Maple Cotton Candy was to die for. The corn, brussels sprouts, mac and cheese are all a must. I did not try the rolls but they looked great and the party I was with loved them. Steaks were cooked perfect! I can't wait to return to Nashville and take my husband. A+++."

  • "When making my reservation, I requested for a "fun and knowledgeable" server for our first dining experience to celebrate a birthday, & Kayne Prime delivered! Ashley & Jimmy were incredible! At no point did our table go without. Jimmy was like ninja, I would have a newly folded napkin, fresh silver, & filled glass and have no clue he had even been by the table. Not once did I feel silly for inquiring about unfamiliar menu items. Ashley's knowledge of the menu was extensive & her suggestions were spot on to each of our preferences. They made our dining experience fun and the birthday boy felt incredibly special on his special day. The cotton candy and bacon- BLEW OUR MINDS. We'll definitely return and encourage others!"

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary and for starters they surprised us with complimentary champagne. From there is an adventure for our taste buds. Te bacon with cotton candy was indescribable. My wife got the Waygu filet and it was the greatest piece of steak I've ever eaten in my life. The experience was fantastic and they truly cared that your experience was one to remember."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Kayne Prime is our favorite in Nashville. The combination of great steaks and possibly even better sides is hard to beat. And don't forget the popovers! This most recent time was no exception. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu - its all spectacular!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and were absolutely blown away. The food was amazing, the staff was incredibly nice and well informed about the menu. We've never spent so much on a meal but with it being a special occasion and with everything being so great, we felt it was 100% worth it."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I heard a lot of great things about this restaurant before going and was very excited to see what all the hype was about. When I booked my reservations, the only request I had was to be seated in a neat romantic setting given the special occasion I planned for this night. This special seating happened to be right at the entrance in a corner facing the hallway. This was a little disappointing given how far out I booked the reservation. I walked around the restaurant and the other sections appear to have a nice ambiance. Our service was not bad but really nothing more than you would receive at a O'Charley's. We had to ask another waiter to refill our drinks it became so long at one point. He was informative of the food choices."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We'll definitely be back! We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and the server started it off right with complimentary glasses of champaign. Best steak house food we've ever had and great service too! The food can't be beat!"

  • "Had a group of 12 here for dinner and it was fantastic. The steaks and the sides were delicious. would definitely go again if we're back in nashville."

  • "Wow. Great place. There were many mixed reviews on Yelp and Urbanspoon. I almost cancelled my reservation based on thoses. I am glad I did not! Our server Amber was fantastic. Enthusiastic, new the menu and the food very well directed us accordingly. We had a great experience ! I will return on my next trip to Nashville"

  • "The menu, food, and service were outstanding. We had several one-of-a-kind dishes and every single item was top notch. I give everything a ten except the noice level, which got pretty high over the course of the night."

  • "Could not have asked for better food or better service."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The food was fair but when factoring in the price it left a bad taste. (No pun intended) We had to switch our night around to get the earliest available but when we arrived the restaurant was not remotely packed and yet we were sat near the restrooms and the waitstaff's station. Our server took a long time to serve us drinks and then disappeared. The shining star was another server who took over and he was fantastic. Overall, we were hoping to be wowed and we were disappointed."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "This was by far one of the best meals I have had. We had the Waygu Filet Mignon with cream corn, brussel sprouts, and broccoli. We also ordered the housemade bacon and tuna for starters. Every bit of the meal was incredible. Kayne is pricy but worth the expense for the quality."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "We really enjoyed our dining experience here. Both my wife and I ordered steaks and they were outstanding. My wife and I were trying to think of the last time we had a really nice dinner where everything we ordered was truly amazing. This restaurant did it. There was a large group next to us that had a little too much wine and was a bit noisy, but everything else was great. Highly recommend."

  • "When on our honeymoon and the steak was too salty to eat. Not great for a $65 steak. The bread however was amazing!!!!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "After having lived in New York, London, LA, SF etc this was such a grave disappointment on service. The waiter clearly wasn't into his job or us or both...mixed up orders, never asked if our meat was cooked properly, dissed me when I asked about the salmon " we are a steak house period!" Left us for lengths of time between courses. After we complained to the manager they said without asking that they would bring a dessert platter. It took so long that the kids got in the car and we were at the door when low and behold out comes the waiter with a droopy giant tray of dessert. A mess truly. We asked the kids if they would come back and they said no. The steak is impressive here but so is the steak at many other spots for less money."

  • "Service was a little slower than I'd like - the 2 minute greet didn't happen - it was more like 5-7 minutes before someone approached the table but the food more than made up for it. Overall hostess staff and wait staff were all very friendly and courteous which is admirable."
