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.

A wonderful meal for our anniversary.

First, I would prefer to rate this restaurant between 4 and 5 to reserve the five for perfect meals which are rare. Since that is impossible, and because I want everyone to try Kayne Prime, it gets the 5th star. The waiter was knowledgeable, articulate and attentive. The other staff were excellent... read more

We absolutely LOVE Kayne Prime. It is one of our favorite restaurants in town. We went for our anniversary and for a birthday - special occasions mainly since the bill is quite hefty. We started with oysters, duck tacos and wagyu Carpaccio. The oysters were amazing- served on the half shell with a tabasco slushy. The duck tacos were really... More

Food is good but comes at a price point that does not justify the quality provided. I did understand how this place gets such high ratings. Service was excellent but I just was not impressed by the food. Lacks the wow factor for $300+ night. I would rather go to Sperry's.

We had reservations at 6. Arrived on time but were turned away because my husband was wearing shorts. There was no mention of the long pants requirement on the website or on Open Table.

Extremely expensive meal. Don't get me wrong, it was very very good, but unless you truly are an ultimate meat lover, I would say you can find a meal just as good, for less, somewhere else. The entree doesn't come with any sides... a la carte.

Hidden away in a slightly random location, this place is well worth a visit! Starters were interesting and delicious - I particularly loved the popcorn buttered lobster and the steak was cooked very well - my husband had the wagyu and declared it the best steak he'd ever had! The sides were huge but even something as basic as fries... More

(One of the top restaurants in Nashville - pronounced CANE) - Amazing food and pretty good wine list in the “Gulch". Good for couples or a group of 6-8 max unless you want to really break the bank. Outstanding menu that is creative but doesn't risk taste. Steak is the name of the game here and the booths in the... More

On my last night in the States, I decided on something special, and was so happy I went to this restaurant. I followed all of my server's recommendations (except the wine...I know what I like). The staff were pleasant, helpful and willing to spend time chatting, but were also discrete. The food (although expensive - their menu is online so... More

Absolutely a one of a kind, the service was outstanding, the food was amazing. The wine selection is to die for. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good cut of meat of money isn't a part of the equation. It's not as expensive as some restaurants I've been to but definitely not like going to your average steakhouse. The... More
