    Went for and early dinner, party of 4. Our server was very nice. The menu was a nice selection and the food tasted fine. But the value relative to other restaurants is very poor. The restaurant has a terrible ventilation system and becomes very smokey from the kitchen. I don’t think I’d return again due to the excessive prices and smoke.

    2 couples, each couple ordered an appetizer and decided to split an entree. I think the kitchen and waiter were confused and thought we wanted half an order of an entree. The salmon entree was about 2 ounces and was served with 2 stalks of asparagus, the other entree was served with 3 scallops, hmm so 1.5 scallops per person. However it gets better, we order a bottle of wine he uncorked it, put the cork back in, walked away, never offered to pour it? You would think the bill would reflect 1/2 entree = 1/2 price but of course not. Very disappointed!

    Overall our meal was good and the service was quick and efficient, however, they were out of Chardonnay which is a standard selection in any restaurant. There is a major discount liquor store in the same complex, couldn’t they have purchased enough for the evening? Also, we were carded despite being 78 years old- what was that about in a higher in Resturant?

    We had a reservation for 6 here at 6pm. After standing at the host stand for close to 10 minutes we finally had to ask someone to seat us. After being seated, we had to ask if we could order drinks. We ordered 3 mixed drinks, one glass of wine and three appetizers. I'll skip many of the details, but at 7:15 when after asking numerous times we still had not gotten the glass of wine nor one of the drinks, had had a shrimp cocktail spilled on the menu of one of our party as it was being served splashing onto and staining her shirt with cocktail sauce, we began to be impatient. We had tried to be very understanding to this point. When we finally asked the waiter if we could just pay for what we had already consumed and leave, he said "Guys, we are all just trying to work together here to have a good time and I'm sorry if you aren't". The person who appeared to be the manager had walked by our table several times without speaking. After waiting a bit for the check, one of our party decided to seek out the server to pay the check. He was standing with the person who appeared to be the manager ... and as they saw her walk up the manager walked away. I absolutely hate to leave bad reviews, and I typically do not...but this experience was surreal. I understand that everyone is short staffed these days but 1) adjust your seating, 2) explain the situation to people, 3) do SOMETHING to appease people when things are going badly. It could be as simple as a round of drinks or a couple of appetizers to keep a group around. None of us really wanted to leave but as we left at 7:30 we felt that we had no choice. I think it's safe to say, this restaurant now has six locals who eat out often that will not be stopping in again. We walked across the parking lot to Peter's Sushi and had drinks in front of us within 10 minutes and food within 20.

    We were blown away with an incredible experience here! I booked last minute (few days prior) for a large group after no one would accommodate us downtown. A quick Uber from our hotel downtown, we were so grateful to find Ludlow and prime. We grew from a party of 20 to 45 or so and they made room for us last minute even with a presentation we had to do. The food was by far our favorite of the trip. Everyone had lots of choices most got the ribeye or the salmon both of which were outstanding. Salad, Entrees, Dessert, Drinks and we were in & out in an hour and a half on a Saturday night. Our servers were great and everyone enjoyed being there. Will book again for any future events in Nashville.

    Very much a New Orleans neighborhood vibe. Very attentive service (thank you Hope), with a very interesting menu. The Shrimp and Grits was a great choice (although we wish they had a bread option to use for sopping up the delicious broth). Definitely the most interesting restaurant in Brentwood!

    Always too cold and always too smoky. Clothes reek and have to go to the cleaners. $1.50 up charge for a martini “served up”??? So lame and so low budget. Especially when it wasn’t even served up and was delivered in a water glass. Wow. On a brighter note, the wedge salad is great. But the grilled chicken we added to it…sheesh. Small portion! And very little flavor. Bottom line…waaaaaaay too many excellent choices in Nashville and Williamson County to tolerate mediocrity in the restaurant scene.

    Four of us dined together and 3 of the 4 felt the food was very normal and not exceptional. The 4th had seafood gumbo which had almost zero seafood, one piece of okra and was extremely salty. The gumbo should either be taken off the menu or tested by management.

    Great dinner experience on a Saturday night! I want to say first of all that all of the staff last night were so friendly and welcoming, and very attentive. The host was even able to accommodate our request for a table change at the last second (a very important football game was on!) and was so nice about it. Our server was on top of everything, so we never had to wait for anything. And the food was top notch — our steaks cooked to perfection, the Bearnaise sauce was divine, and the sides were the perfect complement. We will definitely be back and highly recommend for a great date night experience!

    I did not enjoy my experience here at all. My waiter was nice but when we first came in I asked one of the hosts if we could be moved to the other side of the restaurant where it was a little nicer and not so close to the bar, but they said no because it was all reserved. However, there was only one or two other small parties on that side the entire time we were there. Drinks were very bland and I tasted no alcohol, they were also watered down. The food was very average.

    The food took while to come out and it wasn’t hot. The taste was also bland. Several people in my party complained about their food selection (gumbo, tortilla soup, salmon). The service was also slow; especially when it came time for the checks. The server didn’t seem apologetic for the delayed service nor did she ask for help to manage such a large party. Making the reservations was easy and the ambiance was good. There also seemed to be a lack of communication as the server didn’t know we brought a cake which was in the back.

    Took 10 mins for someone to speak to us once seated. Then when we ordered our salads they never came. Had to send our filets back TWICE because they came out rare and then medium rare when they were ordered medium. Then when the check came we were charged for the missing salads. Also there was a $104 difference from the itemized receipt and what she ran our card for a tried to get us to sign. She told us “oops my bad” and took 10 mins to fix it. On the way out we asked for a manager and there wasn’t one there. Spoke to another server and she said she would let the manager know. Never returning!
