The team at the Marsh made our anniversary dinner very special. We felt like VIPs from the moment we walked in. The manager spent time with us and the waitress was very attentive. The food was creative with great flavors but the cocktails were truly superb. Overall a fantastic night.

Hands down our best experience in Nashville. Deloreon, our waiter was so descriptive with the menu that is was almost impossible to decide on what to choose. His enthusiastic detailed descriptions made the menu "come alive" and difficult to decide on only a few items for dinner. The menu alone does not provide enough details on the food compilation in the meal. My husband and I keep remembering the shrimp from the raw bar and may need to make another 1200 mile trip to Nashville for them at the Marsh House sooner rather than later. If you're in the area you MUST make a reservation, you will not be disappointed.

Second time eating Sunday brunch there, took another group of friends, and they all loved it, too. The menu is so diverse, it pleases every palate, and you will win every time you go there, the food is crazy good. We had the skillet cinnamon roll again times two, it is just too good to pass up! I had the biscuits and gravy and potatoes, loved it! The chicken and waffles was a hit, and the burger was just okay according to my husband. The service is always great, and the atmosphere and decor or so lovely. Please go and see what I'm talking about:) And we ate so fast, and it was so good, we forgot to take pics of the food again, lol, sorry!

It was our anniversary. The cocktails and seafood were excellent. Our server was on top of things and she couldn’t have been more informative and friendly. Dined on the patio and the ambiance was great. Patio can get a little noisy at times with the cars and foot traffic, but you are nicely shielded by greenery.

Marsh House is a beautiful restaurant in an incredible location, especially since we were staying in the amazing Thompson Nashville Hotel. We wanted to enjoy sitting outside for dinner because there was a really nice breeze. We were sat in the area closest to the street corner. It seemed like a great tucked away location but the pedestrian walk signal continuously beeped through out our dinner. Maybe if there was a water feature or even turn up the music to muffle the noise, it would have been nice.
Our waiter was a pleasure; we have no complaints with him at all. The reason we didn't give the Service a 5 star is because they should have warned us of the seating situation and noise. There were certainly other areas on the patio we could have been seated where it was not as loud.
The Oysters were delicious and COLD just like we wanted them. One of the dishes we ordered was the lamb chops. The flavors in that dish were wonderful, unfortunately, the ends of the bones were chared and flaked off onto the our dish. We were bummed.
Having said that we would give Marsh House another try whenever we return for a visit because the complaints we had could have been easily been resolved.

A pleasant meal with a few quirks. Marsh sells itself as Southern . Although some food items are from Alabama,etc. do not expect “Southern cuisine.”

My husband and I came on a Saturday around 1:30pm for a brunch date, and our experience was fantastic! The place was practically empty, with the exception of a few other parties on the patio and a bachelorette party that came shortly after us. The food is fantastic – one of the best brunch menus I've had in Nashville. The atmosphere and design of the restaurant is exquisite. Service could have been a little more professional for the price one would pay to dine here, and their coffee was rather bland, but overall, still a great experience. Would definitely recommend!

We were there recently for lunch. Both the food and the service were top notch, to say the least. We had burgers and they were very good. WE're looking forward to returning in the near future. We highly recommend.

I have been to this restaurant, previously, with customers and was very pleased with the service. This go-around the service by the young lady that was assigned to us was less than what one would expect at a higher end restaurant. She was almost a bit rude. The others assisting her were very hospitable, however.
Serving sizes are smaller (except for the fried chicken).
the noise level was not high but the tables are marble and the plates clank when placed down - so much so that the customer made a comment to me about it... practice could remedy that.

Thought the food was pretty good, the service was alright, fast but not very friendly. There was very much sense of some attitudes going on in the restaurant that was off putting especially being a Nashville native

After hearing good things about Marsh House, our meal last night was disappointing. Small seafood portions, no sides, and our party left hungry.

The food is unique and very good with complex flavors. Cocktails are also well done. Entre portions tend to be on the smaller side, so don’t skip apps or salads.

We had Sunday brunch with friends and everything tasted amazing! For appetizers we had the crab fingers and shrimp toast, OMG is all I can say, the cinnamon swirl in the iron pan was crazy good, and our chicken and waffles (4 large pieces of fried chicken, real chicken with bones, not filets) was scrumptious! The finale was the shrimp and grits and it delivered, I almost licked the plate, but the restaurant was so beautiful and upscale (like I just want to throw a party there just because) I decided I’d just come back again instead! Great job Marsh House!!!!

Made a reservation for 745pm arrived at 755pm waited 15 minutes and still wasn't seated. So we decided to take a seat in the bar area. At 8:25pm our reservation was ready. We opted to stay at the bar as we had already ordered food. The bar service was really great thought the server had his hands in a lot of different things which delayed things a little he was still wonderful. Drinks were amazing, food was great. After dinner we moved upstairs and the service, food and drinks were 5Star. Would come back again for another date night or girls night out.

We had a wonderful meal with our friends. Tuna and Snapper dishes were delicious. The chef was on the dining floor and my husband asked him what he recommended as he passed our table. He stopped and gave us descriptions of his picks. Great server too. The bar upstairs at the Thompson is really worth a visit too. We will go back.
