We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary here, and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and our waiter made wonderful suggestions and didn't rush us. It was a dining experience, not just a meal.

Best steak I have had in years. Great service and attention to detail.
This was our third trip and we will definitely be back.

Our first visit. The service was superb with our server taking plenty of time going over the menu. The food and drinks were perfectly prepared and presented. My only complaint is not about the restaurant per se but about diners at an adjoining table who brought their 3 year old our for dinner with 4 adults. Let’s just put it this way, the 3 year old behaved as you would expect a 3 year old to act seated in one spot during a leisurely meal. There were outbursts and table banging. The adults did a reasonably good job keeping the child in check but if they can afford what was probably a $400 tab, they surely could have paid for a sitter! The table next to them asked to be moved. We were seated and already had food before the child was seated so we just muscled through it and tried our best to ignore it. This isn’t the place to bring your kids.

Arrived excited to ball out, we’ve dined here multiple times. This dinner was for our anniversary, and we told them ahead off time. Waited 30 mins past our reservation, only to be seated at a high top next to the bar. Horrible ambiance, bright tv playing baseball 5 ft away. Should have gone to Outback for same experience and saved a few hundred. Steak was luke warm. Horrible.

A bachelor party of 10 was sat next to us. The restaurant was great other than that. Felt as if a manager should have approached this group as the noise level was to the point that our table could not have a conversation.

Special occasion. Service was terrific, as has been our experience in the past. Unfortunately, two members of our party were very ill later that night. When we tried to notify the restaurant so they could take appropriate precautions, they were more concerned with “proving” it wasn’t their issue than simply demonstrating a quick return call, a word of thanks, and their well wishes. We weren’t looking for anything in return - just trying to help them avoid other issues. Sometimes it’s all about Service Recovery - and here, they failed miserably. I’ve taken ALL of the M restaurant group restaurants off of our list for our personal and business gatherings from here forward. Too many other great options in Nashville.

Second time we’ve been there. First time was 2 years ago, and it was every bit as good this time as it was the first. This is not an inexpensive place to eat, but the service is impeccable, the food is top quality, and the preparation is right on. Ashton, our server, was very attentive, but not annoyingly so. Seafood was fresh, steaks were cooked perfectly, and the risotto tater tots (new since the last time we were there) were delicious and provided a little bit of lightheartedness to our dinner. We were seated in the bar area this time, which was a little noisy for me. Definitely will return to this restaurant next time we’re in Nashville.

Been here a few times and loved it. My wife and I both had the special Wagyu Strip for $90. We were very disappointed with the texture, taste and overall quality of our steak choice—not normal compared to prior experiences. Service and ambiance was awesome as usual. We’ll go back again in hopes that the last experience was a 1-time disappointment.

We chose Kayne Prime for our 21st anniversary dinner with our 4 daughters. We were from out of town, but the reviews were good, so we went. Everyone was really nice and the ambiance was great. The menu had a lot of things I have never tried, and I was a bit worried that we wouldn't like it. Boy, was I wrong!! Wish I could have the cream corn brûlée right now!!! It was amazing!! My steak was perfect. Our girls loved their food too. We will definitely come back next time we are in town.

There is a reason you cannot easily find reservation times at Kayne Prime. It is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in Nashville, and I have been to many of them. It is pricey but I think worth it . I have been there 6 times and invariably enjoy food and service ( I would go more often if they had available reservation times). Very creative menu items. All meats cooked sous vide so steak temperature exactly as you request and cooking is even throughout the meat (i.e.- not well done on the top and bottom and pink in the middle; it is pink from top to bottom, but seared on grill briefly to caramelize the top/bottom). Their staff are very knowledgable, available/attentive and helpful.

Our party of 5 had 2 birthday girls. We couldn’t enjoy our night because the two tables of men next to us were ridiculously loud. Bachelor parties should not be seated In General dining area. Other guest complained and a curtain was pulled to lower noise. Our waitress did offer to move us but we had food in front of us and we didn’t want to move. Very disappointed!

Food was great
Fantastic food recommendations and wine choice by our server
Then he disappeared for 40 minutes
We asked host for check and finally our sever reappeared with dessert menu not knowing we’d asked for check.
Check comes, we cash out and server comes back with desser menu unbeknownst to us already cashing out a full hour after finishing our meal.
Food and drink are amazing but he service really did put a damper on the night.

Great experience. Visiting from out of town with friends and we always try one steakhouse on our trips. Read the reviews and decided to make a reservation. Food was excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. Definitely an investment but very much worth it. Filet, strip and rib-eye were all perfectly prepared. House made bacon and oysters were very good. Popovers were awesome. Highly recommend but reserve early—tables go fast.
