Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "My husband and I had an excellent meal here. We did the 4 course tasting with the wine pairing which was great. They let us substitute anything that didn't appeal to us. The scenery in the Union Station hotel was the icing on the cake (after the creme brûlée)"

  • "The crab bisque is the reason to go here. It's phenomenal. The staff was friendly and overall our dinner was wonderful, there's just no 'wow' factor for me like at other restaurants around town. If you want a nice, quiet, low key dinner with your mate though, this will fit perfectly."

  • "Went to the restaurant for special event and was very disappointed. I got the special, pork chop and it was so chewy, could not cut through it even with a knife. The other dishes were equally disappointing. Will never go back."

  • "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."

  • "My wife and I stayed in the hotel and had dinner at Prime 108. It was awesome. I let the staff know ahead of time it was our 30 th Anniversary and they covered the table with 30 rose petals(nice touch). Service and ambience were great. Food was outstanding and our dessert was free. Highly recommend this restaurant for special events and the hotel is beautiful."

  • "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."

  • "The decor is magnificent, the food was excellent and our waitress did a great job. We were very pleased, but expect to pay for top notch dining!"

  • "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."

  • "For a special occasion, by daughter, her husband, my husband and I were able to dine at Prime 108. It is a beautiful restaurant attached to a more beautiful hotel but best of all, we all had a wonderful and delicious dinner. Large portions so we were very full by the time we left. Our waitress was great; attentive but not over-bearing. It was a great time!"

  • "I had the Taste Menu and it was perfect food with all 4 courses. My husband had the lamb and said he highly recommended it. Fabulous Food! Fabulous Service! "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "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."

  • "We took a girls trip to Nashville. We decided to try 108. I am so glad we did! The sea bass I had was perfectly prepared. I savored every bite. The service was excellent. Thank you Megan! The building is so beautiful too. So many reasons to dine here. Loved it!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We had Easter brunch at Prime 108. The salad presentation was quite unique. Food was very good to excellent. Dessert buffet was a great way to finish the meal. I was surprised that there were not more people. Perhaps the price chased some away."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Located in the historic Union Station Hotel, the atmosphere of this restaurant along with the lobby of the hotel is quite astonishing. It's a treat just to see the original stained glass windows and fireplaces, along with the masterfully reworked hotel. The food was prepared in a timely manner and had a nice presentation. All the meats came out tender and cooked to the correct temperature and the spinach was outstanding."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "My wife and I enjoyed Prime 108 on a Saturday evening. We were seated promptly, and greeted by a friendly and knowledgable server. The food was fantastic. Specifically, the lamb chop was cooked perfectly and presented on a bed of spinach and cous-cous. So satisfying! The atmosphere was a bit quiet for an intimate time. We could clearly hear everything the neighboring table was saying, so we kept our conversation quiet and minimal. Some background music might be helpful. The wait staff was very helpful (even taking time to educate me about some of the art in the dining room, at my request). Overall, we had lovely evening."

  • "This restaurant was beautiful set inside the old Union Station. We loved the spreads they gave with the bread. We decided not go for an appetizer but split the spring salad and it was plenty. I had the lamb and it was one of the best I have ever had! My husband had the snapper and loved it. We split a chocolate mouse dessert that was also delicious."

  • "We went for lunch before the two women's final four semi final games on Sunday. They let us order off the dinner menu even though it was lunch time. Great steak, Caesar salad was good too. Had a nice red blend glass of wine and when we finished lunch sat in the bar. This is in the old Union train station. They have done a marvelous job of renovating the building."

  • "Had dinner on a Wednesday night. I picked the soup and entree the waitress recommended. It was a good meal but overpriced. Service was excellent. It would be nice if they could open the shades in the evening so we could see the city lights. I would recommend for a romantic or quiet dinner."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "My husband and I are hoping that Prime 108 never takes their lamb chops off the menu, it will be hard to order anything else after having had these, they were amazing. We were there Valentines Day weekend and they had run out by the end of the weekend, so this was a trip back specifically for the lamb. Will be back. Service, ambiance, etc. were great."

  • "Had rez for 6 so we were able to sit at a generous sized round table; the best for group conversation with no one feeling left out. Noise level is the best I've found in the downtown Nashville area; you can actually hear one another talk; soft live guitar music is a plus and can make for a very special evening. Service was slow; had to wait about 30 minutes between courses....don't know what was going on in the kitchen as the restaurant was not at full capacity during the start of our 6:30 pm dinner rez. Food is good, presentation nice. My husband and I ordered the prix-fix 4-course dinner; they ran out of dessert but offered us any dessert on the menu - good compensation. Had to re-fill our own wine glasses after the 1st round."

  • "This is not a place for a dinner-a-week. But is great for any special occasion. The setting reminds me of the old days when traveling by train was still an adventure. The food was very good. The read spinach was outstanding. The waitress was very attentive but never in our face. A great place for a special dinner event"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Atmosphere of the restaurant is great, really nice and possibly “first class”. Service was fair but not really what I would expect from a restaurant of this stature/class. Bread pudding would have been better warm as it was cold. A few more selections on menu would be nice also, not a lot just a few more."

  • "Lovely dining room with inferior lighting. Doesn't set the right mood & doesn't highlight the beautiful interior. We had a long wait between the salad course & our entrees. The staff began to reset the tables for breakfast, further diminishing the elegance of the room because they don't use tablecloths for breakfast. Not the elegant fine dining experience I expected. The food was good and the 4 course price fixe option an excellent value. Sound wise, it was nice while the guitarist in the lobby was playing, but when he finished, no music until someone remembered to turn on recorded music, again diminishing the ambiance when the background noise was the sound of the staff clanking plates and cutlery as they reset for breakfast."
