The vibe was amazing. The music being played was just loud enough to drown out other tables but not your own, creating a sense of romance and privacy in a place where tables are definitely packed. The view from the table was spectacular. The service was not the quickest but it was understandable. At 9pm they were still very busy. They were out of baked potatoes. That was a bit of a let down. But the Mac n cheese and steak were to die for and I appreciate the low carb bread options. Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend.

Our server was excellent! We were seated outside close to where a private event was being held. The music from it made it difficult to hear or have a conversation. On recommendation, we ordered and shared the “Old Hickory “ for $130. It was our Anniversary dinner so we decided to splurge. I was very disappointed. We have a couple of local steak houses in our area that do a far better job on cooking a steak for a whole lot less money.

Everything was great except for some really loud karaoke type music blasting from somewhere in the hotel. Besides that it was perfect.

Fabulous. All 4 of come to Nashville and eat everywhere. We agreed this was our favorite!! The staff was great, we had to wait a little for the meal but gave us time to visit. We were surprised when we received two fabulous appetizers which ended up being my personal fav. The steaks and everything was great. Thanks

Everything about our dining experience was top notch
I have food allergies and our server Jorge was extremely helpful in recommending items for me.
Filets were the best We have had in a long time. The light show created a beautiful atmosphere.
Well done‼️

The restaurant needs to enforce a dress code. It is an expensive restaurant that should deliver a certain level of class and ambiance. This was ruined for us by customers who were extremely under-dressed (they were under-dressed for McDonald's). When we complained, we were told there is no dress code. Paying $100 or more per meal, in a room with people dressed in jogging shorts and tank tops is not acceptable to me. The manager acknowledged it was a problem and discounted our meal.

Steaks were excellent. Lobster bisque was wonderful. Our waiter, I think his name was Tony, was awesome! He suggested we move around the table so we had a better view. He was very interactive and entertaining with us...made suggestions of things to do while in Nashville. Best meal we had while staying at the Gaylord.

Was very surprised and pleased. Being a restaurant in the huge Gaylord, our (group of 8) expectations were minimal. But everything was wonderful. The atmosphere is great - eating "outdoors" without the heat, bugs and wind. Our wait staff was very attentive and humorous. The food was excellent - everyone's! Would go back in a heart beat!

This was a nice steakhouse and I ordered a 14 oz NY strip and a filet mignon for my wife. Both were cool when served. My waiter was pleasant but spent most of his time catering to a larger party and I think we were forgotten. Not good when you spend $350 with tip

It is a very expensive place to eat. There are other restaurants to go to that are just as good or better for less money. I realize it is in the hotel but it is almost over the top. A filet and lobster tail was $90! What?

I ordered the Cowboy Ribeye and my wife ordered the New York Strip. We were both looking forward to devouring a good steak after a long day. We both ordered our steaks to a medium temperature. My wife’s steak was fine, but mine came out very rare. Our server said he would take it back to the kitchen to be re-fired but when he came back it was still rare in the middle and near the bone. I didn’t try to finish it. Our server said he could take it back to the kitchen again, but I figured that if they couldn’t get it done right on two tries I should probably not bother. Our server came out to our table later to offer us free desserts and coffee but we said no thanks and asked for our bill. At that point the manager came over and said she would like “to do the right thing” and take my steak off the bill. I said that would do and went home hungry. I should have known when the server splashed the vintage Chianti we ordered on the side of my wine glass that we would be in for an interesting evening. The kicker was we went to Husk the next evening and I ordered the same steak—it came out perfect first try. We’ll never go back.....
