Prime 108 Ratings and Reviews

We arrived at 10:15 a.m. After sitting down, we were told the only option was the buffet. Most hotel buffets are meant to serve a lot of people, with minimal effort by both the restaurant and kitchen staff. By 10:15, the buffet looked like a disaster. Most of the chaffing dishes were out of food and almost. No one was concerned that items were out and during the entire time we ate, no one restocked the buffet with more food. We were there for more than 1 hour. There are far better dinning options in the city, so much so that I have officially sworn off eating at any chain in Nashville ever again. Take Prime 108 off your list.
Wonderful for Brunch
This was my 8 year old granddaughter's first time being at Prime 108. At the time the reservations were made, I was unaware that brunch was buffet-style. I would have preferred the option for her to order from the menu. She had most enjoyed the Salmon Eggs Benedict as did I.

The building and dining room were beautiful! There were only about 8 tables dining when we did, so it was pretty quiet. The food was not what we had hoped for. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything special. The service was okay. I would not recommend spending the amount we spent at this place. Too many other choices in Nashville that are worth the money we paid.
Night Out & Toddler Free
My husband and I found Prime 108 on Open Table and decided to try it - so glad we did. The food was fantastic, they had a good wine selection, and the location was very cool. The only nit-picky thing I'd say is that they did not send out steak knives with the entrees (strip steak and pork chop), but when we asked for them, they brought them out immediately. The architecture in the restaurant, lounge, and train station were also an added bonus to the ambiance. We will definitely go back...and definitely without the toddler! :-)
Our Mother's Day brunch reservation was ...
Our Mother's Day brunch reservation was for 12:30 pm. We were seated. The server walks up and immediately announces what they are out of...namely the Lobster Eggs Benedict. Basically, it was a disappointing experience. The food was over sauced and overcooked. We were never given a bread basket (other tables were). It took forever to get our food, and we were ignored by the wait staff for basic things like water in our glasses.
Food not good
I didn't think any of the food we ordered was good. The salmon was served on a bed of noodles with pesto sauce. Not very imaginative. My strip steak was tough. I would expect a high-end restaurant to have a better cut of meat and more tender.

Ambiance for a hotel not bad but pretty boring. Food and service however were quite good. Its a particular good dining option if you are staying in the hotel.
Cozy and Tastey
Cozy dining room beautifully decorated. Filet was cooked to perfection and the mash potatoes were good as well. Enjoyed a glass of Merlot which went very well with the steak. Would return again when in Nashville.
Quiet but just so-so
We were first there at 6:30. Was about half full when we left. Interesting former train station building ant they validated the valet parking. Service staff changed halfway through the meal and was a bit disjointed. Food was OK but nothing to write home about.

It was a great experience, me and my wife enjoyed the food and the service
A long time preparing wonderful food
Our party of 8 were seated on a Saturday night at a round table (originally for six) pushed up against a small square table (intended for 4). So a slightly awkward arrangement to begin with. We were welcomed by two staff who announced that they would be waiting on us that night, but mysteriously they disappeared for long periods several times, and the wait for our pre-dinner drinks was disappointing, while the wait between drinks and dinner was embarrassingly long for all present. The food itself—fish, steaks, chops, salads, etc.—was fortunately excellent, but the kitchen's not being well-served out front where it counts.
The best dinning experience that you could ask for!! Everything about this restaurant has awesome!! They really made us feel special on a special night!!! The hotel should take some pointers! I would come back to eat but not stay in hotel!!
Why Prime 108 when you don't serve Prime cuts?
Didn't do enough research on this restaurant beforehand. Did a search on OpenTable for Steak houses that I could walk to from my Hotel, and this came up. Not really a Steak house as they only had a filet and strip steak on the menu. The entire menu lacked selection. The Meiomi Pinot was a little pricey. I ordered my Filet Medium rare and it came Medium+. On the plus side, the venue is cool. Restaurant is inside the Union Station Hotel, which has some great ambience. Ceilings were at least 25 feet high.

Good food but needs to be updated inside. Too cool of a hotel not to equally match. Too much competition in Nashville now, got to have A game
Valentine's Day Date
I booked my Valeentine's Day meal based on a menu found on the Prime 108 webpage. Upon arrival, I was dissappointed that the menu had been changed and that the items that peaked my interest in dining at Prime were no longer there. However, the wait staff recommended the Valentine's meal for two, a 24 oz porthouse steak, broccoli and potatoes with salad and dessert. The entire meal was wonderful. I was impressed with the flavors in each dish and the appearance of the meals when served. I will dine at Prime 108 again.

Enjoyed the food, and service was excellent. Lovely atmosphere too.
My husband and I dined here on our last night in Nashville. We put in a special request for a quiet booth, and were given just that! We had a lovely server, and a great dinner. My steak was a bit underdone, but everything else was fantastic. This is a great spot if you'd like great service at for a romantic night out.
Like eating in a tomb.
Prime 108 was highly recommended by a trusted family member who had been there 4 years ago. Apparently things have changed. We arrived 20 minutes early and were told we could not be seated because there were big parties in the dining room. When we got in a table of 6 and a table of 8 were finishing up. Other then those there were two tables of 2 and 4. Too busy? No. The ambiance is dreary and unappetizing. The food was good but the service was terrible (especially with few other diners there) and we left with a bad taste in our mouths. Would never go back. I guess the restaurant changed hands and it's just not anything like our other "upscale" dining experiences in Nashville. Eat at Etch or the Capital Grill. Wow for both.
GREAT place with GREAT everything!!
Prime 108 continues to provide great service, great food, and even greater wine!!

the only negative was the guy at table next to us was conducting business calls on his laptop and was a bit too loud
Better places in Nashville to ear
The food was fine, but nothing really special. Menu is quite limited. If you are staying at the hotel and need a convenient place to eat - this would be a place to stop. Staff was friendly but sparce. We found the atmosphere very cold. The hotel is beautiful, but it is hard to make such a large space not feel like a banquet hall.

Very nice atmosphere for a quiet dinner. Food was delicious!
Our 1st Anniversary Dinner was Top Notch
My husband and I had our wedding reception in the lobby of Union Station on Oct 18, 2015 a year later we returned to have dinner at Prime 108 and it was so special. We were greeted with " Happy Anniversary Mr. & Mrs.Towns" by everyone who worked at the hotel and restaurant. Luke at Prime 108 was very helpful as he allowed my Mom to decorate our table with some of our wedding decor, he bent over backwards to make sure we had a perfect night:) Also our Server was amazing!!!! Over all i would say we had a perfect night.
Excellent dining experience. Friendly, helpful staff and excellent food presented beautifully.
Beautiful, delicious, and overall a wonderful experience. A bit pricey, but worth it!! We had a party of 5 and each of us loved it.
Prime 108 may not be right downtown, but worth it!
We had dinner at Prime 108 before attending the Nashville Opera, so it was early. Most of Nashville's upscale downtown restaurants were booked, so we were pleased to just find a reservation! The ambiance was lovely, the service friendly without being familiar, and the food was wonderful! Three of us had filets and one had the trout. We were all quite pleased, and were out in plenty of time for the $10 cab ride to TPAC! So glad it worked out that we dined there!

We are 7 older ladies who go out to eat in one of Nashville's finer restaurants each month. We were very impressed with the service and food at Prime 108. Our reservations were for 6:30 pm so we were not bothered by noise at first. We were also seated at a great round table which was more inducive to talk. As more people came the noise level increased but was never a problem as in so many restaurants. We all loved our food and our waitress was so quick and pleasant.
ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS PLEASE
My major complain with our dinner at Pime 108 was with the description of the dish in the menu and the dish I received. I ordered scallops on a bed of succotash. What I got were scallops on a bed of corn filled with red and green peppers along with bacon. I can't eat peppers and was shocked to see the peppers there I would not have ordered the meal if I had known. I requested a side of risotto to go with the scallops and should have done that at the beginning. The scallops and risotto were good. The wine list is way overpriced. $55.00 for a bottle of Meiomi Pinot Noir is outrageous. Breakfast was a disaster. The restaurant was totally unprepared for business. The service was extremely slow and often the servers were missing in action. Our orders came out completely wrong and it took forever to get them right. We had to wait a long time just to pay our bill. This is really unacceptable for a hotel of this quality.

Asked for a table, could not accommodate. My steak, ordered medium rare was medium, my companion's steak, ordered medium was medium rate.
Classy for Nashville
My sister and I had a lovely meal and a free desert as it was her birthday. Our server Leanne and her colleague in the bar were very atentive and friendly. It was sad that the place was almost empty. Being British we were amused that the cheese plate was served as a starter. We would normally have it after desert. It was beautifully presented and ample for two. Our fillet steaks were cooked to perfection and at 7 oz just the right size for us. The sauce and accompanying vegetables were also delicious. I would recommend Prime 108 to anyone wanting a good meal, in a classy place as a change from the rowdy honky tonks lower down Broadway.

The service was exceptional. The food divine. The setting is gorgeous and historic. A Nashville MUST.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner. We both ordered filet. It was amazing! So tender you could cut it with your fork. Veggie that came with the dish was Brussels and bacon , very good and mashed potatoes. Nothing special about the potatoes, they could do something a little different. I had a martini, it was good, Caesar salad was nothing to write home about. Need more flare for the price. Lettuce was a little soggy. Hardly no dressing. Terrible presentation on salad. Dessert we shared molten lava chocolate cake. It came with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and topped with strawberries. It was very good.

I started my meal with the delicious smoked tomato soup and grilled goat cheese sandwich. Our entrée's of grilled sirloin was cooked to perfection and was served with mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus. And some dinner was so good, we continued with dessert. The historical building has great ambiance. Go up to the third floor to experience the birds eye view
What an amazing utiful historic hotel
The restuarant is very well run and is in a beautiful hotel.went with a large group they loved it!
Great waiter. They had Single Barrel Jack Daniels. Very good waitress. I will be back.
Great food and service
Ate here on Labor Day with friends from San francisco. Excellent service. Attentive without being overbearing. We stayed and talked not realizing the restaurant had closed, the waitress did not to interrupt us! Excellent choices all well prepared. Fresh catch was as advertised in spite of it being a holiday weekend. Caprese salad was excellent. This is th e third time that I have eaten here and I have never been disappointed.
Great if you are staying at the hotel
My family ate at Prime 108 after being on the road for 4+ hours, and we were staying in the hotel. The standout of the meal was definitely the mushroom flatbread, but at about $17, it set the tone for the prices. The service was excellent, very friendly and put up with our children who were crazy from being on the road 4 hours. The discount for Marriott members was also nice. Overall a very pleasant, if slightly pricey dining experience. I would recommend it for people who are staying at the hotel and don't want to venture out, but I don't know that I would go there otherwise.
