Very Good ExperienceVery nice. Service was great, food was very well prepared and very flavorful. Dessert was excellent (creme Brulee)!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Meal!Excellent and seamless service. I consider service really good when our wine and water glasses are never empty, everything is served on a timely basis hot and delicious and dishes cleared without a fuss. We never had to ask for anything, and service was virtually invisible--which makes for a delightful dining experience. The TN grits soufflé was amazing and my seared halibut and my wife's tenderloin were delicious. My wife's birthday dinner was a lovely evening thanks to the chef & staff at Watermark.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT cannot describe it....This was one of the greatest dining experiences we have ever had!! Everyone we met went out of their way to be nice and helpful! Let me tell you... EVERYONE!!! We took a chance and sat outside... we didn't know if it would be too humid, etc. etc. It was a GREAT decision. GREAT place for people watching. The food... OMG... The food! Everything on the menu looked great. The waitress was very interactive and seemed to enjoy being there and enjoy her job. You will not go wrong with this establishment!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating our 3rd wedding anniverWhat a wonderful evening at Nashville's absolute best restaurant! If you haven't been, GO! This was my family's first visit but it will not be our last! From the grit appetizer, to the perfectly prepared red fish on mashed potatoes you could have mistaken for silk, to creme brulee that melted in your mouth! Also, even though it is not there specialty, they catered to my 18 month old daughter as if they were born to do so! Thank you Watermark for a very special evening! The Allaway family will see you again!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWatermark in The Gulch, NashvilleI have eaten at Watermark on several occasions this year and have always had very good food. The menu changes with the seasons and the chef makes use of locally produced vegetables & fruit when in season. The service can be spotty but for the most part it is good. Outside dining is an option and is great in the spring & fall of the year but can be on the noisy side with the occasional emergency vehicle blasting by. Many people over look the bar on the ground floor which is too bad because it is a very nice place for a drink an conversation. Overall the Watermark experience is very good and a welcome change from the upper end chains like Morton's, Ruth Chris's, Fleming's and the Palm who all have pretty much the same menu items.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AManniversary dinnerWe just spent our 18th anniversary at dinner at Watermark..As usual it was very nice..We would have liked a more private table,however and the noise level needs to be improved..The waiters are always excellent and the food is tops..I do wish the menu
had more to choose from... .Wish .The costs could be lowerd somewhat, also..
I'm sure we'll be back..6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWineWe had a great Malbec wine. It was the best part of the meal!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMjust do itafter being seated by a smiling beautiful hostess on the patio, a perfect ketel one martini was coming my way, the view is awesome, a team of great servants where guiding us threw the menu, we had a tasting menu with the wine pairings a must have, each course brought its own texture and balance of vibrations to the palate, you have to come and check it out, I have been a food and wine lover for some time, being blessed to eat all over the world, Watermark is hitting it out of the park, one of the top meals I ever had, many thanks to all the team members,5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy review of watermarkDelicious food. I had the duck, she had the redfish with crayfish. We had the grits and goat cheese soufflé appetizer. It was all quite good.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWatermark hits the mark again!Always a winner! This weekend I took an out of town guest for dinner. We ordered four appetizers and split an entrée. A highlight of Watermark is the suggested wine pairings available with each menu item as well as the choice of 3 oz or 6 oz. pours. So we were able to experience a variety of wines with each dish. Each of the appetizers were creative in content, preparation and delicious...... two standouts were the roasted beets and arugula over a goat cheese mousse and the hickory grilled baby octopus over creamy grits!!!! Our entrée of Red Fish was outstanding! The fish was cooked to perfection but the fresh crawfish, pear tomatoes and basil sauce was amazing! Great service and a beautiful view of downtown Nashville at sunset! WOW!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGet to the Gulch!We enjoyed great fish and excellent service. Lot's of options and a good choice for a couples celebration.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceMy wife and I went for a special occasion and loved the entire experience. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. He made excellent recommendations and everything we had was delicious.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great FindThey made our anniversary a very special one. The service was outstanding, the wait staff was very attentive. Each of the recommendations made were delicious, flavorful & well presented. The grilled octopus appitizer was tender & perfectly cooked, as was chicken, & the steak. The flourless chocolate cake was served hot & was a perfect ending to the meal. The only disappointment
was the coffee, it was bitter & not hot enough. However we will return on our next trip to Nashville .5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and great food!!!We had a group of 14 and I don't have one negative thing to say about our experience. The bar tender, our waiter, the food, etc were all good and on top of their game. Definitely want to go back and dine on the deck.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth Every Dime!Probably the most expensive spot in Nashville to eat, but worth every dime! The staff accommodated our every request which started with increasing our reservation from 6 guests to 11 with no worries. A gorgeous night to eat out on the roof top deck and the food was SPECTACULAR! I suggest the hickory wood grilled baby octopus for appetizer then to the grilled lamb. Finished if off with a incredible lemon chiffon. We will definitely be back soon!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic eveningI made reservations for my husband and I for his birthday dinner. It was our first time at Watermark, and it certainly will not be our last! We sat on the patio/ rooftop and enjoyed the weather for our meal. Jenny was our waitress and was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable of menu, and attentive. Definitely a hot spot for a date night!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWatermark is specialWe are frequent visitors to the Nashville area, and have always heard great things about Watermark. The entire area, known as The Gulch is lively with interesting shops and several local and chain restaurants. Watermark is elegant, the service is excellent, the wine list is first rate. Overall a very nice dining experience. Look forward to a future visit.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in Nashville...My college girlfriends and I dined here for our girls weekend in Nashville...lovely restaurant! The food was fabulous! Very creative and fresh! The presentation was out of this world! Our server was exceptional and very helpful! We so enjoyed the feel of this restaurant and the pace...very hip, trendy and comfortable. I made a booking on Open Table which worked out nicely as we all arrived at different times. I would definitely go back to The Watermark!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time-of MANYTIMESA very special Mothers Day out (we r 65 and my wife had lost her mom 2 weeks ago).Alot was on the line.
I made surprise reservations choosing Watermark by reputation ALONE.There was no level of disappointment-none!
Our server was bright,cheerful,and knowledgeable.He recommended the grits/ham/cheese appetizer!!! I had filet & my
wife lamb.Excellent.The California Chardonnay was perfect. And to splurge a bit desserts of dark chocolate cake
and warm berry cobbler (recommended). Everything was prompt & valet is waiting. Add this to your "fabulous"list.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!The NY strip steak was the best dish of the night and the chocolate cake was great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversay DinnerWe always find a special place for celebration dinners. This is the first time that we knew we would be back. At Watermark the food wasn't just good - it was excellent. Everything we ate had that extra bit of attention and freshness. The service was attentive without being in our faces. We went on a Tuesday so it was quiet which we appreciated. We will be back!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExtra attention to detailsOur party had a wonderful first time experience at The Watermark. Attention to detail was ever present. The wait staff was friendly, efficient and informative. The food was delightful! We chose the duck. fish. Beef, and lamb. All were cooked to perfection and melt in your mouth delicious! We look forward to another visit.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDaughter's Birthday DinnerWe were seated promptly at our reservation time. We were offered indoor or outdoor seating. We chose outdoor and it was great! The staff was very attentive and courteous. We had the beet salad for a starter which was wonderful! I had scallops and our daughter had the filet - both were very good. My husband had the other steak on the menu and, while it had a wonderful flavor, was very gristly and chewy. The creme brûlée, of which I am not usually a fan but our daughter ordered one dessert for the table, was amazing! They even wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on the plate. Cappuccino to finish off dinner was great too but thought it would have been better served with sugar crystals on a stick than with packets of sweeteners.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebration!The staff was fantastic and very accommodating - especially our waiter, Cole. We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant graciously provided glasses of bubbly to get things started. Classy!
With one exception, the food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We sat on the roof top patio and enjoyed some great Spring weather. Memorable evening!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAttention to detailWas looking for a menu of resturants that were appealing and found the Watermark. I made reservation online and noted I was surprising my husband for our anniversary. We were treated to a more private dining area and immediately the server congratulated us for our anniversary. I had not expected them to do anything about it, just put the note in when reserving.The service was the best I have ever had and the food was amazing.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal in a long time!This was the best meal I've had in a long time! Everything we ordered was absolutely perfect (that doesn't happen often!!). We had the Grit Souffle as an appetizer--it was fabulous! The chicken with mashed potatoes & steak with risotto as meals--once again, perfection! And for dessert I had the lemon curd which was to die for, another had the gelato which was good, not as great as everything else, but still not disapointing. I highly recommend going. The prices were reasonable as well for a very nice, quality meal.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and the waitressAmazing food and the waitress Trish is so professional and knowledgable. Don't think twice. Go!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were recently married andWe were recently married and extended our honeymoon with a stop in Nashville. The Watermark was terrific! The staff was so kind & attentive to our recent nuptials. Chef Bob & our waiter Cole were especially attentive. Chef Bob personally extended his congrats & made sure we ended the night with a super dessert! Plus he gave fantastic recs for live music. Cole was a GREAT server & was sure to make our first night in Nashville a special one. We will be back!!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMatthew CompWonderful restaurant! The food was superb. From the octopus to the flounder, all the way to the trout, our meal was phenomenal. The service was friendly, on point, and frequently kept up with thinfs we needed without any hesitation, all while keeping the atmosphere personal and romantic. This is a restaurant I would definitely come back to again! The prices were high, but well worth every penny, or dollar in this case. Highly recommended!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the best mealsThis was one of the best meals I have had lately. The food was outstanding, both beautiful in presentation and delicious. The menu had adequate variety with creative dishes. The service was excellent. We had not been to Watermark in quite some time because the prices had gotten very high (out of line with comparable restaurants) and the food wasn't that spectacular. We had heard rave (and clearly well-warranted!) reviews of the new chef and were pleased to see the prices are more reasonable again with most entrees in the $25-$30 range with a couple at $32. This is consistent with other local restaurants of this caliber. Highly recommend, especially if you haven't been lately!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday celebrationA group of friends, my wife and I had dinner this past Saturday to celebrate my birthday. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the food, the selection of wines and the outstanding service. The baby grilled octopus appetizer its one of the best I've ever had. We all chose different things from the menu and all agreed that food was great. Portions and the right size and the fusion of southern and french cusine makes a great combination. Our waitress Patricia did an outstanding job on describing each dish and showed perfect knowledge of the menu. We would definitely go back to Watermak.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom wine to appetizer toFrom wine to appetizer to entree to dessert, Watermark made the grade! The entrees featured a unique combination of flavors.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticMy wife had the Roasted Chicken and I had the New York Strip. Both dishes were amazing! We sat outdoors overlooking the Gulch and it was a fantastic view! I would absolutely go again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMQuiet Choice in Noisy NeighborhoodCreative menu offerings. Food was well prepared and appealing in presentation. Good range of choices in entrees. The chef prepared a side vegetable for us that is no longer on the menu. Special vegetable did not delay our order at all. Wine recommendations were good and matched our taste preferences. Very accommodating and knowledgeable service staff. Will definitely return.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall portions but great food!I have to say the food was outstanding, but be prepared to pay higher prices for smaller portions. Ex: Dinner - 3 average size scallops for $30 dollars. I am very used to great restaurants and do not mind paying higher prices, but this was a little much, but the food was absolutely delicious! Our server, was fantastic and even took the time to share some of her favorite places to go in Nashville. The wine was excellent as well, and our server was able to describe the difference between wines, and that is important since we love great wine!! I would definitely recommend it though. Definitely not a place for kids. There is a outdoor patio on the rooftop which would be great when the weather is a little warmer. Drinks/appetizers were awesome!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of six was visitingOur group of six was visiting from out of town and selected Watermark at random. It was fabulous and all of us would love to return!!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious. GreatFood was delicious.

My partner and I enjoyed the serene environment; and the customer service was excellent. When our travels bring is back to Nashville, TN, we will be certain to drop by and visit our friends at this wonderful establishment.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny!!!Truly unbelievable experience. My wife and I went for our 7th anniversary. I made my reservation through open table.
I was contacted by email and phone to confirm my reservation by Watermark. I had mentioned in my notes it was my anniversary.
When we arrived we were greeted ad seated in a section that was closed off and at a table that overlooked the city. They brought us
Complimentary champagne. The staff all acknowledged our special occasion. The waitress was so nice and helpful. We ordered dessert
and they had prepared it on a plate with "happy anniversary" written in chocolate.
We are not known and no influence if any kind and watermark made my wife and I feel special.
It was truly a nice experience. Food was delicious!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDiner with FriendsWe had dinner with friends and it was wonderful!! Will definitely be repeat customers. VERY impressive wine list.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA month prior to coming toA month prior to coming to Watermark, I attended a taping of "Sing For Your Supper", with Chef Bob Waggoner and special music guest ,Brandon Heath at the Ryman Auditorium. Because the taping was such a fun experience, I chose to make reservations at Watermark, knowing that it is Chef Bob's restaurant. My dad was visiting Nashville for the first time ever and our experience at Watermark was our favorite part of the weekend, right alongside going to the Opry on Friday night! :) Our waiter, Cole was so kind, Chef Bob came out to personally greet and talk to us and even sent out complimentary scallops (delicious!). I am not a foodie, but I know high quality when I taste it...Watermark has it all and you will LOVE it!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I visited fromMy wife and I visited from Charleston and had high expectations for the former Charleston Grill Chef Bob Waggoner and they delivered. Enjoyed a great dinner with my wife for our 10 yr anniversary. Food and service were excellent and the ambience was good. The only negative was the closeness of some of the tables. Otherwise it was a wonderful experience we would definitely dine there again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place to eat when ingreat place to eat when in nashville. food and service both excellent. decent price for quality of food and service. on a nice/hip location with great view of nashville skyline. parking is relatively cheap as well. definitely a must try when looking for a nice/romantic dine-in experience in nashville.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful meal. WaiterHad a wonderful meal. Waiter was terrific - spent as much time as we wanted with us explaining the menu and answering our questions. Food was fantastic! Only problem was getting drinks was a little slow and also there was no one to greet us when we arrived and we did not know that we needed to go upstairs. Will definitely go again when back in Nashville.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNot sure what was better,Not sure what was better, the service or the food! Either way high marks!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
