Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our Anniversary and we were greeted by our server with a champagne toast. The food was wonderful and we got great recommendations from our server Joshua. The service was the best we've had anywhere."

  • "3rd time is the charm. Actually every time has been a charm. There is nothing that isn't wonderful about this place. The setting, the people, the FOOD! This place is great for an anniversary, birthday, graduation or a random Tuesday. Find a reason to go, you will not be disappointed."

  • "Amazing...better than many others that claim "best steak" and cost more. Our server, Robert, was perfect! We will go back next time we are in Nashville. #1 in Music City hands down!"

  • "My husband and I have been to Kayne Prime a few times before, but find it just as delicious everytime. We chose to go back to celebrate a very special occasion, and it was absolutely perfect. Our server was just as fantastic. He made great recommendations, and was even knowledgeable on what I could & could not have being pregnant! The other staff was great about clearing empty plates immediately, but we never felt like we were being pushed out so they could flip the table for the next group. We recommend this place to people all the time!"

  • "Excellent food and good service! I had a medium sized group with me and they were well taken of by the staff. My group and I are from out of town and I selected Kayne Prime based on some favorable reviews. None of the members of my group were aware of Kayne Prime's reputation for great food, however ALL of my group left the restaurant extremely impressed by the dining experience."

  • "We were only able to get a very late reservation,10:00. Thought we would go a half hour early and have a drink at the bar but were able to be seated which was very nice. The service was awesome, everyone from the hostess to the wait staff and the valet and the manager .The food was excellent. A few different takes on some traditional steakhouse offerings. We didn't get an appetizer and split a salad, served on two plates, nice. My husband got the filet on the bone, it was excellent, cooked perfectly, rare plus. It was huge and delicious. I had the Waygu 6oz filet, rare plus, spot on!! We had truffle oil french fries and the mushrooms with pepperoni, very good. Probably going back tonight."

  • "1 or 2 small miscues based on the high bar of previous experiences, but nothing egregious. Continues to be the best steak house in town by a mile."

  • "We had a great experience at Kayne Prime. The food and atmosphere was excellent. Our server had a great personality and was a pleasure to be around. This was our first time eating at Kayne Prime but will not be our last. We are huge fans of the M Street group."

  • "WOW, exceptional, this was my fourth time, and great every time. Took some freinds there and they were very happy with all aspects."

  • "Server started by trying to upsell most expensive item on the menu. Once we didnt bite he was ok until the order was taken. After that we never saw him. Food was good except my steak was overcooked and no one came by the table for me to say anything. when the server did come back it was as if the state of our meal wasnt a concern. The other silly thing is they have a electronic wine list but have to check their dupe pads to find out if the wine your order is out of stock. whats the point of a I pad wine list then. Great restaurant that didnt execute."

  • "I've eaten at other places in the area that have better atmosphere and better steaks. Kayne Prime just seemed more expensive. I don't mind paying for the best if I get it, but the value added is almost non-existent over other higher-end restaurants. Honestly, I would have even taken Demo's downtown for 1/5th of the price over this. Although the atmosphere is slightly better at Kayne Prime, the added expense is simply not worth it. Go to Ruth's Chris or another establishment for a more intimate setting, better service, and better food."

  • "Kayne Prime was absolutely incredible in every way! The food was outstanding and the service was wonderful as well! This is a great restaurant!"

  • "The steaks were cooked perfectly, and the appetizers were different and very appealing ( the bacon with cotton candy was the favorite.) the sides are generous enough to share, so we got to sample several. Prices are steep (our bill for 5 was over $400,) but for a special occasion it is perfect. We arrived about 20 minutes early, but were seated immediately. The hostess said that since our reservation was for 6PM we would not get any menus until then. She added that she hoped we "appreciated" their "timing." We did not. If anything would keep me from returning, this would be it. It was pointless and unnecessary. It was the only sour note to a great evening."

  • "Had the bacon and cotton candy appetizer, the kale salad and the wagyu filet, all on the multitudes of Yelp! recommendations. All were excellent. We will definitely be going back!"
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Staff was courteous and effective. They all share a responsibility for each table. Brought out complementary champagne for wife and I. Food was absolutely delicious. Make sure to make reservations because it fills fast with them and wait time can be excruciating. I heard wait times of people I passed who didn't make reservations of one hour or more. Go and enjoy Kayne."

  • "I was really disappointed in the quality of the steak I ordered! I even asked the server and he said that's how it is?? I was also not impressed with the overall dining experience, our group of 4 (which was my wife, son in Grad school and a client) felt like we were in the way of everyone else around us.You need to educate your servers (waiters) that if a filet is ordered medium rare, especially your high end meats, and the customers feels its like medium or even well done in both taste and appearance....and the answer back is that it's cooked right and it's the lighting by the windows that make it look lighter than expected??? really??"

  • "Kayne lived up to the hype. Excellent food. Service was excellent. Creme brulee corn was phenomenal as promised. Every thing else was great as well. Wagyu filet perfectly cooked. We had leftover sides to feed the whole family the next night. I would recommend a group of 4 or 6 so that more aides can be shared without stuffing yourself."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Starting with pork belly and cotton candy? Never ever thought of those two together but ...... YUM! We had the kale salad, something I would not think my husband would like but he loved it also. I had the wagyu filet (mouth watering) but the progression of strip steak that my husband had was the best choice. Got to try angus, American wagyu and Australian. Although all delicious, definitely could taste the difference. Great place for a special meal."

  • "The food was delicious! Things were just adventurous enough to be "gourmet" but also classically good solid food! By far the best restaurant in Nashville! We will definitely return!"

  • "Is there a 6th star I can give for service here? My girlfriend and I went to dinner on her birthday recently, neither of us had been nor had we heard anything about the place other than the food was incredible and I had an expectation of the pricing from looking online before we went. Anyway we made the last reservation of the evening and at not one point did we feel rushed by the staff or treated any differently because of what was admittedly, our own procrastination. Our waitress was extremely helpful and polite, and even took a few GREAT photos of us!! On top of this the food was excellent and the atmosphere is quite cool (KEEP ROCKIN THAT OTIS REDDING!)"

  • "My Husband and I had dinner here on our wedding day so it was only fitting to go back on our 1 year anniversary. Both times they brought us champagne and the chef prepared us a one-bite appetizer (to wake up the pallet) and a small dessert. Those items could not have cost very much, but wow did they make an impression on us! Just the thoughtfulness of the staff and the company- it goes a long way. They do anything and everything to make dining with them as enjoyable as possible. It's all about the experience. But let's talk about the food! WOW-O-WOW! It was almost a mistake to eat there before our Honeymoon because food after that was just "okay"- and we had some great food on the Honeymoon. 5 Stars all around!"

  • "We recently dined there for our anniversary and were not disappointed. Know going in that you will be spending a bit of money and just enjoy. This is the place to splurge! The housemade bacon with maple cotton candy is a must! Then the steak. Oh my, the steak. We got the Wagyu Filet topped with bone marrow butter, and we now consider it the best steak we've ever had. It goes wonderfully with the risotto tater tots and roasted roots. The service was great, and we have no complaints. Cannot wait to come back next year!"

  • "First visit, recommended by locals so 4 of us traveling on business gave it a try. Everything from the moment we walked in was first class. Professional, friendly people from the hostess to the food runners. Our waiter (Nick I think/) was a real pro. He even acknowledged that this was our first visit and he gave us some real helpful insights into the menu. We loved everything, although we didn't try the desserts because we were stuffed from the canoe bone marrow, housemade bacon, salads, bone in rib eye and 3 amazing sides."

  • "Always exceptional service & food. The NY strip trio is a must and the cotton candy bacon! Every visit to Kayne has been great. Always one I recommend."

  • "Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. Overall great experience. Great wine list. Started with duck tacos per waiter's recommendation, different but yummy. He got wagyu filet and was possibly the best steak we have every tried. My grouper was good, nothing crazy special. The brussels and creamed corn brûlée were both awesome! Pop over bread was very unique and good. Waiters were very attentive and loved the environment of restaurant. Pricey but worth it!"

  • "3/16 I was there to celebrate my birthday. This was my 1st time there & I know for sure I'll return! The food, service, and ambiance are all 5 star in my book! The house bacon appetizer was awesome!! This restaurant offers an excellent blend of different seasonings for your taste palate. Sean was one of my servers & he & his counterparts were nothing short of amazing!! I will be back!"
