Was visiting Nashville from New Jersey with my girlfriend and could not have been more satisfied and impressed with our experience here. Absolutely amazing night out. They gave us our own private room that looked into the restaurant and really made it an experience we'll never forget. The staff was incredible: so helpful, accommodating and easy to talk to. Food was out of this world, absolutely delicious, and the dessert was superb. If I could give this restaurant 6 stars I would. Recommend to anyone in the Nashville area looking for an incredible dinner-date.

Decor was very modern, high ceilings, spacious and open. If you like cozy or traditional, this is not the place. But if you expect outstanding food and good service , this IS the place. Get the smoked carrots appetizer, the short ribs (best I’ve had anywhere) or the duck. Even the vegetarian entree was terrific, so you really can’t go wrong.

Beautiful restaurant, the staff was trying so very hard. We had big expectations upon our arrival. Unfortunately we felt the food was simply just not up to par for a restaurant of this caliber and price. We were on site for a NYE set menu so maybe the standard is better.

One of the most beautiful restaurants! The tables were set far apart for quiet conversation,even though it was a large space with high ceilings.
A very inventive menu and delicious food ,very different and the presentation was lovely.
One of the only times I took photos of the food and the menu!

Prima is a hidden jewel! My wife and I had been there before and she picked it to celebrate our anniversary because she loves the atmosphere. I reviewed the menu online beforehand and was not excited about the options -- but I was wrong because the meal was fabulous. The service was excellent, and David, the sommelier was extremely helpful. I was stunned by the quality of the wine list. It has to be the best in Nashville! A great choice for a quiet evening with great wine and innovative food.

My date and I booked Prima for a special Christmas holiday dinner after reading an enthusiastic review in the Nashville Scene. It was the first time there for both of us, and we ordered from the Snacks, First Course and Second Course side of the menu. The lightly-encrusted beef tartare that we shared for starters was extraordinary - subtle, flavorful and an immediate hit. I selected the Jumbo Lump Alabama Crab for the First Course, my date had the Lobster Risotto. Again, we were impressed with the balance of flavors , although she observed that her risotto could have used a bit less salt. For the Second Course, she selected the Bone Marrow Crusted Beef Tenderloin, and I had the Duck Breast with Sweet Corn, Chanterelle Mushroom, Farro and Summer Truffle. Both dishes were cooked to perfection, and chef Andy Little's imaginative combination of ingredients was a delight and a revelation. For dessert, we split the Chocolate Cake, which was decadent. With two cocktails, a glass of wine and coffee for her, we spent just over two Benjamins with tip, but, for a dinner this exquisite and memorable, I think it was money well spent. Our waiter, Mike, was most attentive and very knowledgeable but never overbearing, the ambience was subdued and informally elegant, the presentation of the food was artful and a treat for the eyes, and Prima provides free parking in the Terrazo building. It was an experience we'll savor for a long time, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Go!
