The steaks were undercooked. We asked for them medium and they came out medium rare.

The meal was overpriced and the wait staff very bothersome and did not allow us time to talk and relax. The hovered constantly. The steak was overly salty and very costly. The ambiance was lovely and the garden so beautiful. Too bad our dining experience was not good.

Steaks were excellent and the rest of the food was very good. We love the overall ambiance but the acoustics made the music sound more like noise. Wait staff is very attentive.

The food and drinks were good if you can get beyond the poor service. Host was not friendly, which sets the environment with all the servers. We had a bad experience with the wait staff and valet service. So many restaurants in Nashville, wouldn’t recommend this one.

Great location. Food was very good. Service was excellent. A little noisy, so hard to hear for a large party. Pricing seemed a bit high but it is a resort after all.
The Gaylord resort is beautiful and a bit overwhelming.

Morton’s prices, but beef was not prime dry aged. Most was described as premium angus. I got what I ordered. The description was not too misleading, but I paid prime prices for “premium” beef.

The ambience is excellent, but the food is subpar. You go in expecting a "Flemings" level experience, but the food was like a steak at a Chili's or another mid-level chain. But with premium prices. And the wait staff seemed so uninterested in serving us.

It was a real disappointment because, as I said, the ambience and the view were really delightful. We had planned to eat there another night during our stay, but I cancelled that.

the service was outstanding. we’ve found that there’s not many good food options at the gaylord but old hickory was delicious. my wife loved her filet. the new york strip was good too but the cut of meat didn’t match the price. still tasty, just not worthy of the price. we also went with our 2 and 3 year old and sitting outside was perfect and loud enough where we didn’t feel like we were bothering others.

Service was excellent and couldn't have been any better. Our dinners were good, but a bit below average for a fine steak house. I had the filet and it was cooked to my specifications, my husband had the special 14 oz NY strip, and he liked it. However, we've had much better cuts of beef elsewhere. Also, I think that MSG is used in the seasoning or as a flavor enhancer. I'm extremely sensitive to it and I woke up at 3 am with a severe migraine. I didn't get a chance to follow up with the restaurant to inquire about this so I'm not 100% sure. If anyone else has the same issue, I suggest that you ask the waiter before ordering.

Food very good! Atmosphere great, but a little loud (outside). Waiter seemed to have an attitude as better than others and seemed disappointed we did not order more food. Two of us got a little sick the next day, but not sure if it had anything to do with the food or not.

Our overall experience was good. I will have to say the service once we were seated was excellent. We had reservations at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday night 2/16/19, but were not seated at 7:15 even though we were 30 minutes early! We weren't offered a seat inside by the fireplace - were asked to sit outside on the front porch in rockers which was fine. The food was exceptionally delicious except for the bread. It was hard as a brick!!! Our steaks were prepared the way we ordered them, and the baked potato and salad were both delicious. The desserts sounded wonderful, but we were full so we didn't indulge. All in all, our experience was a good one. But, please offer SOFT bread!! Thank you P.S. Our waiter Tony was great. Also loved the ambiance and enjoyed the light show.
