The food, service, and atmosphere are amazing. Conveniently located. I highly suggest the fillet mignon.

Stayed in a hotel right next to it so decided to book a table. Food was excellent but I'd say was missing the 'umpf" in creativity - pretty standard American upscale restaurant food with associated prices. The souffle and carpaccio didn't disappoint, the pasta was plentiful and good - so good. Coming from large cities, I'd say it was as... More

Pork chops were great but the cornbread and andouille sausage was too cold and appeared to be pre made and from the fridge. Good ambient

We enjoyed the food, ambience & experience at Watermark. We started with the Grit soufflé & it was awesome, highly recommend & the bacon in it was the best! They use hickory on their grill & grill slow. My husband got the steak & had scallops added on & he loved it, very flavorful steak & tender it was delicious.... More

We took our friend from out of town to dinner here. We knew the food and service was good. I last review Watermark the end of October. I don't know if I mentioned at that visit that we were the only ones in the dining room. Well last night was pretty much the same. The private room downstairs had a... More

I brought my business partners from Germany (6 people) here for dinner back in August. Food quality and service was good. Unfortunately the restaurant doesn't have it's own parking lot and we had to use Valet Service, provided in front of the it's entrance. In 2,5 months later I got a parking ticket. Apparently Valet Service company got my money,... More

Maybe there are better options for $100 a plate. The menu was very unique (in a good way) and the food was tasty. Portions were small and wine by the glass more pricey than the normal up-charge at restaurants. Service was excellent for the first 80% of the meal and then just disappeared. Restaurant was not busy at all (Tuesday... More

Watermark truly goes above & beyond! Balcony dining over a beautiful part of the city, Great Food, Impeccable Service! Romantic dining at a candlelit table for 2, overlooking the beautiful & bustling Gulch section of Nashville. Every staff member we encountered seemed to be genuinely enjoying what they do, and dedicated to offering a quality experience. We requested vegetarian options... More

The restaurant is in one of the emerging high end neighborhoods in Nashville and has gained an excellent reputation. The staff is great, smiling and amicable, and takes care of every detail at the table. They know the menu very well, and are enthusiastic about it. The bar choices and wine list are very good. But the food is incredible!... More

This is a place we return to often. We have never had a bad meal and this time was no exception. We shared a delicious grilled lobster tail as our appetizer. It is truly one of our favorites. The branzino was equally delicious. They really know how to prepare fish, we have never been disappointed. We sat inside but the... More
