    Was there for my soon to be sister-in-laws bachelorette party - we had a nice room to ourselves, the food was outstanding, the service was excellent and everyone told me the rest of the night how amazing their meal was and how satisfied they were with my pick for a dinner reservation. 12/10 highly recommend

    Horrible experience! I came from KY to celebrate my 40th birthday with 10 guests and the night ended in a terrible confrontation that ruined my birthday dinner. Rude staff is being nice. And when we asked for a manager we where told there wasn't a manager in the restaurant:( Terrible service experience.

    Wonderful experience! Our team had a wonderful lunch. The salmon appetizer was cooked to perfection and my colleague said his crab cake was the best he'd ever had. I splurged for a Strip at lunchtime and it was well worth it. Our server was great as well, we'll be back again before the summer is over.

    Book club lunch in one of the separate rooms was fantastic. Our server Jalene was great, she took wonderful care of our group of twenty. It was a big menu with lots to choose from, I need to come back on my own to taste more of the menu. Our lunch was great! I think the salmon was the biggest hit!

Our food was so delicious, steak was seasoned perfectly and my wifes salmon was perfect. The creme brulee at the end was perfect. Thanks guys!!

    Very disappointing. We’ve been to Ludlow & Prime probably 15 times and never left disappointed. We ordered the salmon and the filet with a side of creamed spinach. The salmon came lukewarm with a side of greens instead of the whipped potatoes and asparagus as indicated on the menu. The filet was very good, but the creamed spinach was not delivered at all. I ordered a second glass of wine but it was slow in coming. I finished the filet and the wine and spinach had not been delivered, so I found our waiter and told him to cancel the wine and spinach and bring us our check. We paid and left

    Server was way too pushy as far as getting us in and out. I ordered a glass of wine and out came my steak which I finished before he got to the wine. Actually the wine came when I gave my credit card to him to pay the bill. Thankfully there was no issue getting it removed from the tab. Overall underwhelmed.

    This is a neighborhood gem. It's in a strip center, but don't be fooled, the food is fabulous. There are a few tables outside and we are still trying to be CoVid safe and opted for there. My husband and I both had a filet, which was cooked perfectly and seasoned tastily, not salty, just perfect to bring the flavor from the meat. Our sides were creamed spinach and truffle mac and cheese. The truffle mac and cheese was good, but the creamed spinach was light on spinach and a bit watery. Almost seemed to cheesy rather then creamy. It was still good. For desert since we still had wine in our glasses, went for the chocolate molten and it didn't disappoint.

    Met for Happy Hour, best one I've seen in the area, lots of choices for food and $5 wines and drinks. Bartender was great, she made us delicious special cocktails and we ended up staying for dinner at the bar. Scallops were perfectly seared with a summery corn purée. Also had the salmon which was some of the best tasting salmon I've had. Chocolate Cake for dessert was awesome. Highly recommend!

    We gave it a shot because the other restaurant cancelled our res last minute. The waitstaff was very accommodating, the food was surprisingly good and we all enjoyed the atmosphere, tucked away and private. Some of the group had burgers, which looked great. I had crab cakes and truffle fries and they were wonderful. great place for a group too.

    Decided to check this local establishment out as longtime Brentwood residents. (4 of us) We were so so disappointed. We ended up having one round of drinks and leaving. The reason—When we went to order appetizers we were informed they were out of the first 2 items we asked for—garlic bread and oysters. I can understand the oysters, but something so Simple as garlic bread??? We decided we better ask for a manager to find out if we should continue ordering based on the first 2 items not being available. The manager was somewhat apologetic, but not convincing enough for us to stay. We really really were hoping for a better experience. Will we return?? Not so sure it will be anytime soon. Shucks 😩

    Poor service from the start. Hostess was not able to sit us do to zero capacity. Somehow capacity opened up when I booked reservation through open table while standing in front of hostess. Appetizers were the best part of meal. Entrees were overcooked and/or lacked flavor. First time at restaurant and had heard positives - very disappointed.

    we had a large group, we made a last minute reservation and they were super accommodating to us although they were busy. Everyone enjoyed the food, I'm super picky but they had a large menu and something for everyone. I ended up having the buratta salad with salmon, both were delicious. good service, oh the oysters were great too.

    It was the worse experience I’ve ever had the service was terrible food all came at different times cold and couple people out of party never even got their food they were not apologetic what’s so ever just ignored us entire time. Very disappointed and overall bad experience I would not recommend yelp reviews were not good but tried anyways and that was a big mistake. Worse part was 20% gratuity added and was not deserved at all

    We wanted something local and not a chain for our anniversary. The adds for this place don’t do it justice. The billboards make it look like a crab shack but the restaurant is more refined than that with still being very comfortable. Food was really good! We got the seafood tower, shrimp and grits and the filet. It was our servers second day but he was still really good. We would definitely go back!

    I wanted to love Ludlow and Prime, but there was nothing special about it. In fact, it was underwhelming. We were seated for at least 20 minutes before we received waters, and our bar drinks and wine didn’t come for at least another 15 minutes. The appetizers, oysters, artichoke dip and shrimp cocktail were okay; sadly, the dip wasn’t warm. We didn’t fair much better with our entrees. The blue cheese buttered filet had potential. Unfortunately, two of the three steaks were way over cooked and the sides were lukewarm. The steak fritz was the best entree and the pasta was ok. My husband’s fried chicken came out 15-20 minutes after all the other entrees were served. There was no explanation or even an apology for it being brought out so late. The most disappointing part was the overall service and experience. For a $500 meal (over $600 with tip) I just expect more. The Nashville area has too many good restaurants to take a chance on Ludlow and Prime again.

    Happy hour food was great - truffle fries, wedge salad. Dinner service was lacking - we had to ask for menus after being seated at our table, we had to search for the waitress to get our bill. Scallops were good. Crabcakes were just ok and not very hot. Recommend only for happy hours and light bites.
