    Loved it. I went with my mom, husband, and three college age young men. Perfect. We could all find an excellent choice for dinner, wine, dessert. I had the fish special, others had steak, lamb, vegetarian options. All were outstanding. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies. And, we could all hear each other, even my slightly deaf hubby and my 80 year old mom. It was busy but the service was attentive but not intrusive. Loved it all.

    We loved this restaurant and the ambience, having been looking forward to going for some time. We went to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was fabulous, but the longer we were there the slower the service was. Not sure what was going on, hopefully something we weren't aware. The waitress was very friendly and we liked her, but we were there 2 and a half hours for a meal. Our dinner plates sat for at least 20 mins before we finally called over the food director, who was very very nice and apologetic and took care of us for the rest of the meal. We just felt for the prices, the service should be much better.

    Two families (8 of us) came to Nashville last weekend to celebrate the engagement of our son and their daughter. I chose Prime 108 because someone told me it was a cool and romantic setting and that the food was good. The first two bottles of wine we ordered were out of stock but they bent over backwards and discounted the substitutes for us. The waitress could have been a little more attentive as my water glass was empty for a long time. I was surprised to see 20% added to my bill. We didn't get $120 worth of service. The food was tasty and well prepared (I had the 4 course sampler) Everyone said they loved their food but I think it was a one and done for me, especially if I'm picking up the check. I expected to be blown away. I wasn't.

    Took 7 guests there for dinner. If you want a very nice ambiance, this is the place. Strolling guitar payer was excellent. The hotel lobby is spectacular. Restaurant a bit less so with odd large artwork on walls. Nicely covered chairs and booths. As far as the food, not spectacular. Crab cakes, too much cake, not enough crab. Heirloom tomato plates short on the amount of tomatoes and cheese for the price. I enjoyed the beet salad; the best thing I tasted. Shared chicken dish; it was simply baked pounded and breaded chicken. Two guest did enjoy vegetarian ravioli. Two other guests had beef filets, that were ok, but nothing special at $41. Two other guests shared the cowboy ribeye. Again, only average, but clearly enough for two.

    Their biggest dishes like the sirloin steak and the crab cake appetizer, didn't go over that well with the people I was dining with and they didn't look that great either. But, I think that might be a result of the restaurant wanting to take risks with presenting interesting food in new, somewhat unexpected preparations. Some highlights- the server, shrimp appetizer, scallops, chicken marsala soup, vegetarian ravioli, desserts (lavender creme brulee, peach cobbler, chocolate torte) Some lowlights- the restaurant was very, very quiet for a Saturday night (aka empty) so it was a little gloomy, particularly because of the dark ambiance. Steak and crab cake were underwhelming. Bread and butters before dinner were underwhelming.

    We were looking for a place that would meet some specific requirements: great food, quiet so we could talk with out-of-town friends that we hadn't seen in a long time, and a unique place in Nashville showcasing historical elements. Prime 108 was perfect. The hotel lobby is impressive, the restaurant is beautifully designed, dramatic and gorgeous, the food was excellent and the service was attentive and not intrusive. The restaurant delivered an amiable and welcoming experience without being pretentious. It will be our "go to" place for special occasions.

    I wasn't expecting this place to be in a train station turned hotel. The architecture of the place was captivating. Also the service staff was very friendly and they knew the menu. If you're stuck between choice ask the staff their opinion and they will provide a great option. It was very quite for an early Sunday dinner. They didn't seem to mind cargo pants and a polo even though the dress code is business casual. They were very understanding since I did just arrive in Nashville off a plane. The Vegetable Ravioli was the best that I've had so far. The spinach was steamed to perfection. It was nice a bright green like spinach is supposed to be. The dessert options are wonderful! Try the tart or cheesecake you can't go wrong.

    Absolutely terrific meal and delightful evening. The rennovated Union Station Hotel with its magnificent lobby and stunning Tiffany windows are worth a visit for everyone. But the dinner atvPrime 108 was a delight we will long treasure. The chef's tasting prix fixe with wine pairings was stupendous--from first bite/sip to the last. The poached apricot dessert was hands down the best dessert I can remember. And the pairings were perfect. Thank you. We will long remember our evening at Prime 108 as a highlight of our Nashville trip.

    Dinner was great, we had the fried shrimp app and the two specials for dinner. We had the fresh catch (snapper) and the vegetarian special (gnocchi). The snapper was great and the gnocchi was good but my wife thinks it had too much balsamic glaze. Service was great, but it wasn't busy at all. We were there early, and it was a very quick but well timed dinner.

    This place is better in the winter with the fire going and it being dark outside. Took my wife for our anniversary, and it failed to live up to the memories of our last visit. Service was fine. The 'smoked' fillet has a very smokey flavor. The rockfish special seemed overly salty. Wasn't a bad experience,but not what we were anticipating.

    First time at the 108, we had an early dinner as we were going on to a show afterwards so, the restaurant was quite but there were a few other dinners there. The food was excellent from the starters through to desert our waitress was also great, not a cheap dinner but worth it with the beautiful old railway stations décor. There was also a large wedding taking place in the main lobby which did not effect our good experience at all, only improved it.

    Last minute decision to dine at Prime 108 because it was close, it was raining, it was in a Historic Restored Rail Station and we had not been there before. We were extremely pleased with our chance encounter. Friendly, effective service and some unique excellent dishes were tried, making for a leisurely, rainy, memorable dining experience.

    My wife and I were in Nashville for our anniversary and wanted a nice night out. While we enjoyed the restaurant and the meal, the pricing was really out of line with the quality. I have been to plenty of "expensive" restaurants and largely have felt that the pricing was warranted given the quality of the food, the service and the overall atmosphere. That really wasn't the case with this restaurant. The food was good and the restaurant was nice - just not worth the price. I won't be coming back on my next visit.

    First, the restaurant and the hotel are absolutely beautiful. You couldn't ask for a more romantic setting. The service was excellent! We had the cheese plate appetizer, which was great! The bread served before the meal was also wonderful. For entrees, my husband had the filet and I had the chicken. Both meats were delicious, but both of my sides which were English peas and spaetzle, were very bland. My husband's sides, marble potatoes and asparagus, were yummy! They gave us complimentary dessert for our anniversary, so kind of them! The check was 83 dollars, and we were pleasantly surprised it wasn't more. We would dine there again.

    For a fine dining restaurant, the service was mediocre at best. When I spend $150. for dinner for my wife and I, having to wave down or look for the server is not what I expect. Tho the food was good, it was not hot. I guess our waitress let it sit for a good while because it was just barely warm. I will not return to this restaurant even though it has great ambiance, and I do not recommend it.

    Our party of 6 needed to arrive 30 minutes earlier than our reservations due to a plane flight one of our members needed to catch. Prime 108 kindly and immediately allowed us to arrive early and put a rush on our order. And they made it very comfortable for our one member in a wheelchair. We love the fresh, organic and sustainably produced ingredients. This is why we are regular, happy customers!

    Food was outstanding and very creative, especially the salad which was well designed and delicious. Steak was just perfect. This was a brunch and our table for 5 was sizeable, but this beautiful and historic train station has very high ceilings, so the uncontrolled and boisterous children in attendance made it very difficult to hold a conversation with my fellow diners. When the kids left the silence was welcome and we were able to finish our wonderful meal in peace.
