Right there with the Ruth Chris type steak house. Pricey but our meal was very good with a good wine selection. Expect to pay a hundred bucks per person.

Local here... Also a serious steak lover. Kayne is incredible. It changed the Nashville steakhouse climate completely when it appeared on the scene a few years ago. The steaks themselves are spectacular, and the sides, starters, and cocktails are an incredible supporting staff. There are great options for a non-steak eater as well. The atmosphere is unique and fabulous, and... More

Went as a group of 4 people without reservations on a Saturday evening while visiting Nashville with friends who live there. We were not able to be seated right away but ordered drinks and stood in the bar area a short time and were able to sit at the bar, where we stayed the entire time. 3 of us ordered... More

If you like steak this is the place to go... Not the cheapest of menus, but fine dining it is.... the 40 oz steak would have been enough for 6 people!! Great service and friendly staff. It's worth a visit !!!

A very happening bar scene, here at Kayne Prime. The bar was completely full but we were able to found a spot to hunker down in. We had a fantastic whiskey sour, a tequila drink with Serrano pepper and a lemonade concoction...all delicious. When our table was finally ready, we had a delicious meal with all of us sharing to...

Kayne has the best steaks ever! You have to splurge and get the wagyu cut. It is amazing. Everything thing from all the sides (which are huge) and the bread, which comes as these delicious popovers is absolutely delicious! It's expensive, but it's a great place for a special occasion. If you sit at the bar, and the weather is... More

Arriving at the restaurant we were greeted by the 3 lovely hostess who said our table was not ready but we could go to the bar. So we did naturally. I ordered the Green Dragon. Nice bite to it and bartender was pleasant. Once we were seated at our table it was perfect. Hidden in the corner over looking part... More

In traveling to Nashville to celebrate a 30th birthday, we used TA to find the right place for a nice dinner. We decided to go to Kayne Prime. Made reservations for 8 and they requested that we fill out a credit card authorization form guaranteeing a $600 minimum. And if we cancelled within 48 hours, we owed the full $600.... More

Visiting our son in Nashville, he wanted to try Kayne as he had had drinks at the bar but never eaten there. Start was a little uneven as the hostess asked us to wait while the people at our table paid their bill. But there were other tables and booths available and other similar size parties that came in after... More

We visited Kayne Prime in the hopes of having a luxurious, decadent end to our weekend in Nashville. Instead it felt like a place that preys on ignorant tourists or locals trying to be "fancy"; lots of swagger with no real chops to back it up. We had dry kale salad, rubbery ($89) lobster, runny mashed potatoes, and a weird... More
