First 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 AMFood was just average. Can'tFood was just average. Can't recommend it for the price. The atmosphere is very nice though.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 AMFood was ehThe restaurant has a great ambiance but the food was average. For that price, I'd hope to get something outstanding outside of the bread basket.4/25/2013 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.

Best Nashville experience...3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything about this restaurantEverything about this restaurant was fabulous: food, service and ambience. I dine often at world-class restaurants, and Watermark easily fits in with that group. I wish I lived in Nashville so I could visit more often!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and EnvironmentI must say that Watermark exceeded my expectations. 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 AMFood was great. The drinkFood was great. The drink menu is way short. If they would improve the drink selections this would be a perfect place to go.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Friday night supper!We went @ 7 on a Fri. We were quickly seated & they easily made from 6 to a 7-top. Our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful & friendly without being intrusive. We tried the chicken livers, grit soufflé & crab cake as starters, which was plenty for the first 6 of us to share. Wines were varied in many areas but not as deep in others, with many by-the-glass offerings. The wine prices varied but tended towards expensive. We tried the flounder, the shrimp and grits, the lamb & eggplant, the trout and the strip steak entrees, each was well-prepared and -presented. Portions were reasonable. For dessert we shared a delightful & unique beer ice cream & pretzel sundae and a deconstructed lemon meringue pie. Totally outstanding!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience we'veBest dining experience we've had since moving from Atlanta. Appetizers were creative and well done. Entre's were very good, with interesting sides and good quality proteins. Loved the wine parings. The only disappointment was the dessert menu which was uninspiring - we passed, which may be a first.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally! - Nashville has anFinally! - Nashville has an urban upscale fine dining place that lives up to the high expectations I have if I'm going to splurge on a big night out. More importantly, I have a B&B where the guests expect the best, so I need to have a great recommendation for local places to eat that I really can believe in. Food was local and fabulous.
Watermark is located in a "re-vibed", hip part of the city bustling with nightlife, they make it easy to park with a valet. The bar is on the street level and the only reason I didn't give this place a 5-star is that the February night we were there was rainy and cold and they had no heat in the bar, where we waited for the other couple to join us. A complimentary drink to 'ease the freeze' was in order.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved that we were ableI loved that we were able to get a reservation on such short notice at New Years, however it was not made clear BEFORE I put my credit card on it that we would have to pay $125 dollars per person at the restaurant. I think that you should made that CLEAR before someone makes a reservation. The food was great and I love Open Table, but I would make that change immediately. Thank you.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AM
