    Carne Mare is a beautiful restaurant with great service-perfect for a special occasion! Definitely on the pricey side but worth it if you are celebrating! Service was extremely attentive-our water was never even half-empty before it was refilled!

    Service very slow at first. Got slightly better. Entrees took 1:45 to get to the table. 2 of 4 overcooked. Very expensive for the food quality and service. Also for a fine steakhouse, very noisy and hard to hear each other talk with only a table of 4. Hard floors contribute.

    We went for Mothers Day dinner and at 7p they told us they were out of Filets. This is a steakhouse so we were surprised. I realize that Mothers Day is the busiest restaurant day of the year, but they were not prepared. Three of us in the party had to choose another entree which resulted in an up charge. The waiter did come back and tell us they had one filet left and brought it out to my daughter which was appreciated. Someone in the party ordered the Waygu steak and it came completely undercooked almost raw. We had to wave down the server to take the steak back and have it cooked to the appropriate temperature which took 15 minutes and it came back almost charred. The restaurant obviously was low on staff as most places are and we were very patient, but we had to ask more than 4 times for beverages and refills on drinks that weren’t alcoholic. He sold us on way too many sides for the table that were not even touched. We opted out of dessert and I had no entree but our bill was $900 before gratuity. It was a very disappointing experience for a special occasion dinner. Way too much money for the quality of food and service we received. We are local and will not be returning. There are way too many steakhouses in Nashville with a better ambiance, service and quality of food to choose from next time. I was very sad because this was the second time we had been to this restaurant and was so excited to take my family here. The best part of the meal was the two rose’s they gave us for Mothers Day.

    Carne Mare is one of a number of Nashville restaurants located within or adjacent to new upper end hotels, in this case the W Hotel in Nashville’s Gulch neighborhood. This was our first visit, and it was enjoyable overall. The restaurant has a very nice look, modern but with oversized and comfortable chairs. The ambiance was very good. We started with the oysters (Washington State) and they were excellent - plump, ice-cold, attractively presented. The horseradish served as an accompaniment was, however, completely without taste. Since horseradish naturally varies a lot in intensity, a little quality control would have been welcome here, especially at close to $50 per dozen. All 3 people in our party got steak for dinner, each a different cut. The bavette steak was perfect. The rib eye was ordered rare but came out closer to medium. My filet, also ordered rare, was served that way and had very good flavor. I did, however, order it Pittsburgh style, and that aspect wasn’t handled in a way that does credit to the concept. Since many steak restaurants don’t do that well, I always ask the server if they are used to preparing steak in that manner. He said ‘of course’ and was either incorrect, over-confident, or perhaps the cook had an off-night. The potatoes served with the steaks were excellent. Overall, some good and not so good things. A pleasant enough experience, but not top notch. We’ll visit again and give them another chance.

    My husband and I and another couple had dinner at 6:15p on Mother’s Day. The restaurant was very warm and there were people literally wearing their sunglasses b/c there was nothing to block the dun. We waited over 15 min before a waiter even said hello. Another 10 minutes just get water and after 45 minutes we got our cocktail order. Our food arrived 2 hours after we were seated and it was cold. This was not a problem if it being crowded on a holiday. There were empty tables. The service was ridiculously slow. My husband finally complained to a manager and things improved somewhat but the night was ruined. We left tired and hungry. And all of our water glasses were empty when we left and had been for 20 minutes. We definitely do not recommend this restaurant.

    Red Snapper had scales I had to pick out of my mouth after every other bite, which ruined it. Lamb pasta dish over cooked but tasty nonetheless. Cocktail mediocre. Wine great. Server great. Overpriced.

    Sub-par service after we asked to be moved to a larger table than the high tops. These tables are fine for a drink and perhaps an appetizer but not a meal for two people. Once seated by the host on the outdoor patio (which was lovely), a server approached us and told us we weren’t allowed to sit there without checking in with the host. Clearly a lack of communication, but nevertheless made us feel awkward and unwelcome. Service took an incredibly long time - our wine was brought over, opened and the somm left the cork and disappeared for 5 minutes with the bottle. The foie gras snack was a delicious two bites and the Caesar was amazing! Shared the T-bone which was a special. It was poor quality and cut far too thin to be able to get a sear on it without resulting in an over cooked piece of meat. The strip side was medium+ and the filet side was gray and well done. We’d asked for med rare. The manager kindly made things right and offered to comp dessert. I’m fairly sure that we spent close to three hours there for what turned out to be a poor experience.

    I had read good and bad reviews online but since the majority were good, I decided to give it a try, but unfortunately the bad reviews were right. The bread IS really good. First, I had the spicy crab lettuce cups which are the two smallest, cutest lettuce cups with the littlest bit of crab. Adorable, but lacking. I then had the 12 oz gorgonzola-cured wagyu striploin which was depressing in quality. I don't know how to describe it, but considering the considerable amount of wagyu I've consumed in my life, this was disappointing. I also had it with the potatoes rustica at the suggestion of the waiter, but they were so salty it was as if salt was the main ingredient, not potatoes. I ended with the seventeen-layer chocolate cake which was nothing to phone home about. Overall, quite disappointing and not a place I would ever return to. There are much better steakhouses in Nashville.
