We did not have a positive experience at Kayne Prime on this occasion. Even though we were not first timers at Kayne Prime, we knew what to expect in regards to pricing. However, our experience this time did not match our prior (positive) experiences at the restaurant. Here's a recap: the restaurant, as usual, was busy. We had a reservation and were seated on time; our backup server greeted us and brought water. Our main server then arrived and took our drinks and appetizer order ... then the problems began. While drinks arrived within a reasonable time, our main server didn't come back to take our appetizer order for about 15 minutes; the lone appetizer we ordered didn't appear for at least 30 minutes after ordering, and only then did the main server take our meal order; our salads arrived about 15 minutes after we'd finished the appetizer; the entrée and side dishes arrived about 30 minutes after the salad course - we'd been at the table for over 90 minutes by that point. The steak dish was okay (could have been hotter), but the side dishes were lukewarm, at best. Bread arrived (after we requested it), but no butter. The brulee'd topper on the cream corn was tough and chewy instead of crackly, like it should have been, probably because the dish had been left to sit out too long. The main server kept apologizing to us for the delays and told us a "large party" had preceded us in ordering and caused backups in the kitchen. No offense, but Kayne Prime is a fairly large restaurant and the size of one party shouldn't create the kinds of problems we encountered. End result: while we were not pleased, we'll give Kayne Prime another chance to justify the expense of eating there. Mess up again though, and we'll take our business elsewhere.

Service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I had the popcorn buttered lobster as a starter which was an interesting mixture of textures as the very tender lobster was covered in what seemed like movie theatre popcorn but it worked. My main course was the outside skirt steak which was served sliced and was delicious. The cream corn brulee is also not to be missed.

This was my second time dining at Kayne Prime and I wanted to treat my mother, visiting from out of town, for her birthday. The full flavor off all the dishes was fantastic. The service was terrific and the attention EVERYONE gave her with a simple birthday acknowledgement was so appreciated. The value is all well-matched between the quality of food, service and ambiance.

Very nice atmosphere with professional staff. Side items were well priced for portion size. Ordered the progression of ny strip $59 cooked to medium. It comes to the table cold. Flavor was good and I was able to make it thru about $28 worth before it was to cold to go on.

My husband and I dined here on our quick weekend getaway to Nashville. WOW! The service is outstanding and the staff are wonderful. Definitely make reservations to get in quickly. Convenient valet is a nice must. It just doesn’t pay to park and walk. The Wagyu beef cut is PHENOMENAL and cooked PERFECT to order. Sides are large and shareable. Creme brûlée corn is to die for, Buttered Popcorn Lobster as an appetizer is a must to try and topping off the meal with a carmelized banana bread! Oh my goodness. An amazing meal. Perfect for a romantic getaway, Anniversary or to wow that special someone. Shoutout to our incredible waiter, Steve. Everything about this place is top-notch. Go ahead, treat yourself!

Maybe the best steak on my life. Never had a Wagyu strip sous vide before. But I will promise you it won't be the last. Perfectly done inside with the thinnest char on the outside. Absolutely no grey meat near the crust. A true revelation.

I rarely leave reviews, but felt so inclined after my experience. Nashville is one of my favorite cities to visit, so as a Christmas gift my sister and I brought my parents for a long weekend. We had heard so many great things about this restaurant we made 9:45PM reservations on a Saturday night. We arrived on time, were told that our table was just getting cleared and we would be seated soon. We then listened to the wait staff gossip for 20 minutes. I finally asked again if we would have a table soon (at this hour the restaurant was visibly empty, tables everywhere) The hostess laughed and told me they can't find forks for us. I'm not sure why we weren't seated anyways so we could have ordered drinks, but no the less. We were seated closer to 10:30, we were brought waters and then NOTHING. Many waiters walked by and looked at us, but no one said a word. Finally the gentleman who brought the waters came back and was appalled that we hadn't been served. He said every server he asked said it wasn't their table to cover.
Finally a server came over and took our order. The meals were ok, but that at that point we were all so frustrated it was a ruined experience. I love Nashville but will never come back to this restaurant again.

Food and service were absolutely amazing. We started the meal with the cotton candy bacon as an appetizer, which I highly recommend. Both my steak and my boyfriend’s were cooked to perfection, and the sides(creamed corn brûlée and brussel sprouts) were delicious. Definitely plan on going back!

I was a bit disappointed in the meal. The service started off well but then it felt as if they forgot about us. We had to ask twice for bread and when the entrees arrived the server placed the wrong food in front of most people. Some of the food was excellent, but my steak was cold and another steak was cooked to the wrong temperature. When booking a fine dining restaurant you expect better. I would not return.

Waiter did not make us feel like special occasion. Wine was served warm and martini arrived also Warm. Most side items are loaded with cheese. Restaurant was quite warm. We dine out a lot and it doesn’t feel fresh or current. Like an old steakhouse your parents took you to. My husband liked kale item. There are better restaurants in Nashville. Needs updating.

The steak was not great. I had the rib eye that was charred too much.
The broccoli was so "char flavored" it tasted burnt.
The mushrooms were good.
And then the alarm went off until the firetrucks came.
We received no discount.
Just not worth it.
Have been to actual 5 star restaurants that were worth the five stars.
This is may be a two/ three.
Very disappointing!
