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

We ate here with another couple on Saturday night. Our waiter, Jordan, was wonderful! We had some apps and he had the bartender make a special Halloween drink for one of our guests. She really enjoyed it. Our meals were great we had steaks and scallops. Our entire evening was great.! Thanks we will be back!

Being a large group, we had a room to ourselves. The only negative was that instead of having a large rectangular table, it was three separate round tables, spaced apart, was nearly impossible to interact with the rest of the group. The wait person was charming, attentive, excellent at his job! Dinner was absolutely spectacular, everything impeccable from appetizer to... More

We had heard a great new Chef had arrived at Watermark and after trying several $$$$ restaurants in Nashville this weekend we saved Watermark for Saturday night before seeing Adele. What a great experience. Our group tried several of the First, Second and Thirds and were extremely pleased with the flavors, presentation and service. The candied carrots, tempura asparagus, hen...

Being from Kansas am always hesitant about ordering steak anywhere else, have to say I am hooked on the filet here. Also enjoyed the short rib and crab surf and turf which was amazing. Had to finish up with the creme brulee which was so rich and creamy with just the right crunch. If the weather is nice have to... More

When you go to a high end restaurant you expect it to excellent. The service and surrounding and most of the food was really good. Until my fish came and it was over cooked. We didn't have time to send it back because we had tickets to TPAC but I would expect better, for the price.
