The service was the only good thing about the restaurant. The vegetable medley looked like the frozen vegetables from Kroger. The truffle fries barely had an truffle seasoning on them. The filet was well cooked, but over priced for the very mediocre sides that were accompanying it. Will not return.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate our anniversary while in Nashville. While the ambiance was nice. Service was slow and food only so so but on the expensive side. I had the seafood special and the lobster was over cooked.

I was really looking forward to dining here as I'd heard great thing but overall, I was disappointed. The menu selection was poor. The restaurant wasn't too busy except for a few large tables of 8-10 people. It took awhile to get our drinks. At the waitresses suggestion, she asked if my date would like to substitute the fries that came with his meal for for something else. He did yes and chose something else but his meal came out with the fries anyways. It took forever to get the waitress to come back with the check after we were done eating. There were a few large tables of people dining and they appeared to be under staffed for a Thursday evening. Don't plan to dine there again

Unfortunately, this experience is precisely what you would expect from a hotel restaurant. Had we realized Prime 108 was based out of a hotel, we likely wouldn't have bothered, but we failed to notice this until we made it to the location via our smartphone navigation. We all agreed to give it a shot as we were hungry. My brick chicken leaked water onto my plate and risotto with each cut, not as moist chicken should, but as a frozen piece of meat will when cooked while still frozen. The vegetables served along side it were essentially uncooked, and the risotto itself was lackluster. Another member of our party ordered a salad with chicken, avocado and corn. The chicken was sparse, and when she did find it in the salad, it was the gristle and bone you would expect to see left behind at the completion of the kitchen's prep work. There was no avocado and there were about ten kernels of corn. For the table, we ordered truffle fries, as truffle anything is usually a delicious pick. They were like fries from a grocery store cooked in a college dorm. The bright spot of the meal was the mushroom ravioli. It was very tasty and savory. The service left much to be desired. I wonder if our server knows just how bad this restaurant is and has conceded to it. Will not return. Surprised this can exist in Nashville given the caliber of neighboring restaurants.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
