Kayne Prime is the artful fusion of a chef-chic boutique restaurant, with the great American steakhouse. Progressive in every sense – cuisine, wine & mixology, stylish design – Kayne Prime is the modern evolution of the classic upscale steakhouse. Market-driven, farm-to-table creations.. sophisticated cocktails.. an exceptional wine list.. award-winning steaks - all set in a “rustic–modern”, “Best Design” interior that features a sleek study of woods, rich leathers, and walls of reclaimed railroad ties, with breathtaking views that highlight the historic train yards, Union Station, and the downtown Nashville skyline. Every great city has its own best. Nashville’s best is Kayne Prime.

My 10th visit; love the place. Tonight, however, was very different and disappointing. Reservation for 7pm in the main dining room; seated at 7:30pm in the bar, which was LOUD!! Dinner was good. Coat check lost our coats; had to find them ourselves with a flashlight. Doubt I will make it back for visit #11!

This place is one of the best steakhouses in the country. When in Nashville, Kayne Prime is my go-to place for entertaining customers. The service is excellent, even when tasked to wait in a large group. We ordered off the menu and they didn't miss a beat... Which is often difficult to do. No one had a steak or dish... More

Where do I begin.... The only downer was that I got full . We started with the lobster popcorn, cotton candy bacon, and the canoes of beef . To die for ! Excellent the best appetizers I have ever had . For the entrées we had the bone in ribeye aged , added the truffle butter !!!! My mouth is... More

Let me start by saying that the food is very good. My husband took me there for my birthday in February, one of the messiest nights here in decades. We began the meal with the black kale salad, split. For the main course, I had the 6oz. Wagyu strip steak cooked sous-vide style and my husband had the Scottish salmon.... More

I had the NY Strip, brussel sprouts and the oysters. It was a crowded night, I should have made a reservation. Service is impeccable, steak was FANTASTIC and brussel sprouts were divine. I had the steak, the veggie, six oysters and 3 glasses of wine. Bill was $140. That's to be expected when fine dining. Would definitely return.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a four course meal for Valentines. We started with the pork belly and cotton candy. The pair were well matched. The pork belly was tender and melted in your mouth. Next we each had a salad. I chose the kale salad. It was huge and delish. My husband had the Caesar, also delish. We... More

Don't get a table near the bathroom. Anyone asking "Where is the Bathroom?" is escorted by a Kayne co-worker - the parade is amusing. After leaving Kayne Prime, I ranked the service as good as Maestro's Ocean Club in Vegas, but there were many differences, primarily in the food quality and pricing. The popcorn lobster appetizer was fabulous and memoriable,... More

This is my second time to Kayne Prime and it was just as good as the first. I was there for a business meeting with clients. We ordered a sampling of multiple steaks, which our waiter served family style for us at the table. All were delicious, although the Wagyu filet was a table favorite.

We dined here for my sister's birthday. This is a restaurant that does special occasions well. A large portion of the restaurant seems to be devoted to tables that comfortably sit 6+. Overall, everyone in our party enjoyed the meal. I particularly liked the lobster and popcorn appetizer. The duck tacos were also quite nice. The steaks are typical steakhouse... More
