Have dined at Kayne Prime many times and have always had an exceptional experience all the way around, however the last two visits not so. Our steaks and sides came out lukewarm. The first time I notified our waiter but this last visit made me wonder if it was even worth mentioning (is this status quo now) Not sure why the food is not delivered on piping hot plates as other upscale steakhouses do as well!
I love a good steakhouse and don’t mind spending the money but lukewarm food is such a disappointment! I really enjoy everything about Kayne Prime and will give them one more chance before choosing to dine elsewhere.

We were celebrating my dads 80th birthday and it was perfect. The food was unbelievably great. The maple bacon app never disappoints; wish we had ordered two of them. The heirloom tomato salad is to die for.. the texture and flavors are so well balanced with the perfect burratta and exactly perfect amount of balsamic. All four of us enjoyed 6 oz wagyu filets that were perfectly cooked to our liking and so buttery and tender. They cold not have been better. We have enjoyed Kayne Prime many times over many years but this experience was the most enjoyable by far. Our server Sarah gave us outstanding professional and personable attention and we wanted for nothing. We treated my dad to a glass of Louis XIII and enjoyed a couple of delicious desserts. It was an incredible night. When you want your special occasion to be perfect, you need to choose Kayne Prime over any other choice in Nashville. Five stars!!!

2nd time here and wasn't as memorable as the first. Popovers did not seem fresh, ordered my Wagyu filet medium rare but came out rare. Granted I did eat the whole thing but would have enjoyed it more had it been medium rare as I ordered. Sides were okay (broccoli and root veggies) both had a little too much heat for me. My husband likes the place more than I do. It is a nice place and good food. Even though I was a bit let down from my first meal here I would still come back when in the Nashville area.

Probably the best service we have had. We were seated right on time with our reservation and greeted by server immediately. He was very attentive and always made sure we were taken care of. Read the reviews to try the house bacon and it did NOT disappoint, very tasty. We had the wagyu filet and springer chicken with the cream corn and macaroni granitee, all come out fast, warm & were exactly cooked. Great place to celebrate our 5th anniversary, we will definitely be back

While our food was absolutely outstanding. Truly one of the best cooked steaks I’ve ever had. Seared to perfection. The bacon/cotton candy app was insane as were the roasted root vegetable side. Don’t leave without getting the banana bread dessert. The only downside to our experience was that we had a reservation and in the reservation we noted we’d prefer to sit at the bar. Upon sitting at the bar we sat for 15 minutes. 3 different bartenders walked past us multiple times never acknowledging our presence once and instead felt the need to chat up the couple of girls 3 seats down the entire time we were there. Feeling frustrated, I went back to the hostess and explained what was happening/not happening. We then waited another 5 minutes for a table. When we sat our server went through his spiel naming the most expensive things on the menu as his favorites. It felt very rehearsed, not what I’m used to in such a fine dining establishment. Each time we would ask about another dish, he would dodge the question as if he really didn’t know anything at all about the menu except for the 4 items he memorized. As someone who has worked in fine dining for 17 years I found this to be slight alarming that he made it through his training. Nonetheless, some of the worst service I’ve encountered in a while but the food was amazing. Not sure I’ll go back but I never say never.

Amazing service, food and wine! We were disappointed that we booked a table for 6, but got a very awkward table for 8, so the table was too bug. We could not hear each other, and the table was very hard to get in and out of your seat. So ya overall paid a lot of money for a non- communicative dinner.

I'm a Nashville Native.
This is hands down the best steak in town. Period. *Wagyu beef*.
And, being a foodie, I can also attest that their truffle béarnaise sauce and Kale salad is fantastic.
The bar is beautiful.
The food is supreme.

I was really looking forward to this dinner. I usually set up 2 or 3 good dinners during vacation, but this was a short trip so Kayne was our only big dinner planned. The steak was disappointing; it wasn't hot, it wasn't juicy. It's almost like it sat for too long before they brought it out. The sides were pretty good, and the salad/appetizer options are solid. But this is a steak place and the steak didn't live up to many of the other top steak places we've been to. Add in the fact that we get out of other places for ~$200 including dessert and we dropped close to $300 here without dessert, and that's what dropped it from a 4 to a 3 for me. Not worth the money at all.

We would definitely return and relax at the bar, and would like to see a more robust bar menu. Overall we enjoyed the experience.

Very disappointing experience! My husband and I were celebrating our recent wedding, and from start to finish we had a terrible night. The food didn’t come out as we wanted and was very poor. I also metioned I had an allergy and the food came out with that exact item on it!! Clearly they don’t take allergies seriously. Overall not impressed and totally over rated.

This was our second visit to Kayne Prime. The food and the service were top notch! My husband was having surgery at Vandy the next day so we decided to enjoy a nice meal before his operation. When I made the reservation I had requested a table or booth that was quiet and cozy. When we arrived the hostess informed us that she couldn’t do both and wanted to know which was most important and we selected quiet. I think that one would be hard pressed to find a noisier table in the restaurant. We were right around the corner from the bar and in an area with several large parties. This made it difficult to even have a conversation. Needless to say we were both disappointed but can’t say enough good things regarding the quality of the food and service.

We had an amazing experience tonight! We started out with the bacon because it had been recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Amazing!The heirloom tomato salad was so bright and fresh. We shared the potatoes gratin, which in my opinion was just mostly cheese. I would try something else next time. Our server recommended the mushrooms which turned out to be a perfect tip-they were delicious and full of flavor! I had the pork porterhouse and my husband had the New York strip. Both were cooked perfectly - best pork I’ve ever had! Overall wonderful experience!
