Kayne Prime Ratings and Reviews
By reputation it's great, Jen the asst server was great. Our waiter started out great and kind of lost interest as the night progressed. Wife's filet was good, my rib eye was lukewarm, which was funny because I was told to be careful of the hot plate. I would give the place one more shot
I have been to Kayne Prime before and always love the originality of their food. I thought our waiter was very attentive and explained both food and wine selections very thoroughly. However it was at times a bit loud, and when my mom who had ordered the Wagyu filet mignon told our waiter that she was disappointed with the meat because it had gristle in it, he just said "I'm sorry about that" but didn't offer to give us a free dessert or take it off our check or anything else I might have expected in a nice restaurant.
This was the first time dining here since the expansion. Still the same fabulous food and service. We had a business dinner on a Thursday evening, previous dining has been date night or anniversary etc.
I was surprised by the noise level. We were sat in the new expansion area. We were still able to hear one another, but it was far from quiet. Not overly boisterous, even with the sports screens, but definitely more of a "quick cocktail vibe" in that section. The older area still remains on the quiet side or that was the impression as we walked through.
As mentioned, the food quality was fabulous most of our group stayed with the 1200 menu, everything cooked to perfection. Always a thumbs up to the cocktails. We had some Bourbon "snobs" in the group who were quite pleased.
Let me start out by stating the obvious, you are not going to Kayne Prime because you want a bargain deal on a great meal! The food is great and they definitely charge you for it.
Now, Let now state the other obvious thing, you WILL NOT be disappointed in what they deliver you for your meal. We attended dinner service on a Wednesday night to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of a coworker. From walking through the door to getting seated to closing out the tab, the atmosphere was very welcoming and comfortable.
We sat in the newly acquired and remodeled section and were instantly greeted by a server helping us set our table and getting us our selection of water (we went with VOSS Sparkling Water). Shortly after receiving out water we were greeted with our primary server who took us through the menu and the ordering process. He gave us adequate time to review the menu and his suggestions and answered any questions we had about the items on the menu.
Kayne Prime is definitely a special or business occasion restaurant. The food is great and the staff is exceptionally courteous.
I highly recommend!!
From start to finish our experience here was wonderful. Our server was more than happy to go through the menu with us and make some great recommendations. We ordered the cotton candy bacon appetizer and split a wedge salad to start. Delish! My boyfriend and I both ordered filets and this is the first dining experience I've ever had where my filet came out a beautiful rare. I ordered bone marrow butter to come with mine but I can imagine the steak having wonderful flavor without! The sides are definitely shareable so we ordered Brussel sprouts and au gratin potatoes and both were awesome. I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for date night dinners or really any kind of dinner!
What a find. A life long local recommend Kayne for steak. One of the most flavorful and perfectly cooked filets I've had and I've had a quantity in my 60+ years. We will come again and again. Thanks to the entire staff for a wonderful business dinner. Our wait staff was superb and attentive to every detail. Thanks, Dano Augusta, Ga.
We celebrated my husbands 30th birthday and throughly enjoyed every minute! From the delicious food (including the best filet I've ever had) to the amazing service provided by Patrick and the SA's, we had a memorable experience. Patrick definitely made the experience as he understood my husband's humor and we never felt out of place or forgotten. I understand you have to plan ahead and make a reservation at least a week or two in advance (for a Friday or Saturday reservation) but it is worth it!
The explanations of the Wagyu and other descriptions provided by our waiter Daniel were very helpful and we had a wonderful experience with outstanding dinner choices. The cuts are amazing. The corn brûlée was unreal. The wine list while a tad pricey was exactly what we were craving and made for an unforgettable night!
The dinner experience at Kayne Prime was amazing, the waiter walked us through the entire experience making suggestions on what to order and such. From the appetizers, to the salads, to the dinner and sides everything was delicious. The wine was one recommended by the waiter and it did not disappoint
After being recommended Kayne Prime through multiple contacts, I knew I had to get a reservation. Although it was tough to get one, the later in the night reservation was worth it. The perfect spot when looking for a high quality, AMAZING food, phenomenal service, cozy atmosphere type of restaurant. Whether you're headed out for a romantic dinner or a birthday celebration with friends, Kayne Prime takes the cake.
The new area of the restaurant that recently opened up is not the same experience as the original restaurant. The tables around the second bar area are uncomfortable and impractical. My wife is 5 foot tall and her feet couldn't touch the chair or table. Very uncomfortable!!! If I wanted to sit in a bar, I would have gone to a bar. For the price and the quality of food, the ambiance was very poor. If I go back, I would specifically request a table in the original restaurant.
This was our first visit, and for a couple who travel a lot, and celebrate special occasions well, with great dining experiences, Kayne Prime scored a home run. I rated the food value as very good, instead of outstanding, because of the cost of the popcorn lobster, and bacon with cotton candy. Although the creativity of the pairings, and the presentation were outstanding, the amount of lobster, and amount of bacon was minimal. Value on the rest of our steak entrees and side items were as expected, and perfectly prepared.
As most would agree, food is the biggest part of returning to a restaurant, because service can vary. However, It appeared all of the servers were on top of everything they were doing. I would like to give special accolades for the dining experience provided by our servers Scott, and Jerry Dawn, at your Nashville, TN location; they MADE out 30th Anniversary even better.
We live in Bowling Green, KY, and have many restaurants to choose, but, when it's ready to travel, Nashville is our choice, especially with our new found favorite, Kayne Prime.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Early reservations on Sunday at 5pm so they point us to the most boring table of the restaurant. Meat was ok but i think the meat at bob steak house was better and service as well. Service is a bit pretentious and keep coming every 10mn a bit annoying . Not worth the 280 usd for 2
My Wife and I really enjoyed Kayne Prime. I had the NY Strip steak medium-well with a side of cream corn brulee. Kayne Prime is one of the finest steakhouses in Nashville/Gulch area. Kayne Prime is great for anniversaries, date night, formal dinner, and etc. I really enjoyed my meal at Kayne Prime.
