Loved the tower of seafood. And the scallops with squid pasta was delicious!

Dinner was great! We loved the brussel sprouts - you MUST get them. I’m dreaming about them still. So delicious. The trout was also excellent. My friend had the mushroom pasta and it was also outstanding. We didn’t really like the crab ravigote, it’s just a cold crab spread. The oysters were delicious. We would go back for sure.

Dining room is gorgeous, though marble everything makes it chilly. Cold is perfect for seafood! Bring an extra layer if you run cold. Service is fantastic. Utilize the sommeliers, they're very talented. Food was delightful, so much tasty Southern tradition and just enough modern touches to be unique. Shrimp toast impeccable. Excellent selection of seafood thoughtfully prepared. Plenty of meat dishes, as well. Lamb chop was a gorgeous med rare. Creative desserts are aesthetically pleasing and not cloyingly sweet, which was a very pleasant surprise.

We tried to go to rooftop, but it was a windy eve. Our dinner was at 6:45 and we were seated in a timely manner. However, for larger groups all tables are long and doesn’t do well for conversation.
Our waitress was very good and knowledgeable. The Brussels sprouts and ceviche were excellent appetizers. The said we Mk was excellent and ordered by 4. The trout was excellent. The cobia and fried chicken were OK. We all agreed the experience was a great choice.

Our service was outstanding and the food was delicious! My main course was the raw bar seafood tower and everything was fresh and presented nicely. My husband had the Cobia and it was cooked perfectly. The only negative was the smaller portion size.. but overall we were very satisfied.

This was our first visit to Nashville and we selected this restaurant based on reviews we read . It was FANTASTIC! Our server, Ellen, was absolutely terrific ! She made suggestions and was friendly and kind. We ordered the etouffee and it was superb ! We ordered the squid ink pasta and scallops, grouper and the grilled mahi. Everyone tried each other’s entrees and we had a lively discussion about who ordered the best dinner! We will go back for sure. Can’t recommend enough !
It has a super cool vibe too without being too over the top. Bon Appetit !

We LOVED our dinner here! We were staying at the Hotel and decided to eat there, kind of a Belated Birthday celebration for both of us. (With 2 weeks).
We had a FABULOUS waitress, Laura. Very knowledgeable and just delightful. Helped make the evening a complete treasure.
I couldn’t resist the fried chicken, divine, and a biscuit to die for.
Can’t even remember what else we ate but everything was wonderful, loved the restaurant and as I said, Laura made the evening. Would definitely go back!!

Service was excellent and we were made to feel very special. We were celebrating birthdays and the brought us some chef's treats. Where there was a fail with the parents on their cell phones and their child with an I pad and no head phones so, as it got louder in the restaurant so, did the I pad. Was really distracting and took away from this fine dinner with the great service. Fish was outstanding to taste and the host to the servers had engaging personalities.

Enjoy all the fine restaurants around Nashville, however, we were very disappointed with our choice of Marsh House. The wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly, the food definitely was not on par with pricing or other establishments. The table next to us had a very lively woman (who had been drinking too long) When we mentioned this to our wait staff, we were told " she will be leaving soon" . Not the experience I had been anticipating all week.
Thanks Marsh House, we will not return.

Everything was great except in order to purchase a Cabernet wine it was only available by the bottle. This was a little ridiculous. So we purchased a bottle to have two glassed consumed, very disappointed with this issue. Hopefully this will be something you might consider changing.

Nice place with good service. Priced like top-quality restaurants in Nashville but not quite that level of quality in the food. This is one of the few restaurants of this level that are open late, which is a plus for those who like to have dinner after, rather than before a show downtown.

I chose Marsh House for dinner on a Tuesday evening and was very impressed with both the food and the service. While the food is good enough to stand on its own, their service really sets them apart. Before dinner, I dropped off some flowers to have sent to my table during dinner and sensing that this was a celebratory occasion, the waitstaff brought out complimentary champagne for my girlfriend and me. While everything was delicious, the shrimp toast, scallops, and eggplant puree were especially noteworthy.

I've lived in Nashville for over a decade and this is one of the best meals I've had in town. No qualifiers needed.

Overall a wonderful experience. My wife and I went their for my birthday. The ambiance is a little on the louder side. But then again there was bachelorette party (its Nashville). Food was great give it 8.8 out of 10. Great mixed drinks some of the best I've ever had. My wife had the tilefish (amazing) and I had the snapper a little on the heavy side (like etoufee) but still really good. Overall I would put this place on my return list for sure

We were sadly not very impressed with our experience this past week. 3 of us had 2 different dishes, and neither dish was very good. Service was decent, but for the prices, we were not impressed with what we received.

I had read the reviews for this restaurant before making my reservation and everything said was spot on. Service was impeccable but not overbearing. Our server made sure we were aware of the special but was also good when asked about certain dishes on the menu. The noise level was great -- not too loud you couldn't hear others at your table. But, the food far exceeded our expectations. I had the Marsh House omelette which was cooked to perfection. The potatoes that accompanied them were well seasoned and cooked just right. I really liked the accompanying greens -- a nice healthy addition. Price wise, definitely was not over priced. We've definitely spent more on other brunches. We will definitely be back again.
