On The Marsh Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The perfect venue for a belated Mother's Day dinner after the show at Ogunquit Playhouse! We had a quiet corner all to ourselves and our server, Elaine, went above & beyond to make sure we were pleased with our meal and overall experience! This was my 3rd visit to On the Marsh and it won't be my last! LOVE this restaurant!!!!
We were in the area this past weekend and had dinner at On the Marsh. We've been there a few times and love everytbing about this very special place. The food is great, the servers are attentive and provide helpful suggestions when asked. I had the haddock and my wife had the scallops and both were beautifully prepared and presented. We look forward to returning.
We always love to come to On The Marsh for special occasions. It was my stepson's birthday and last night of a two week visit so it was a special night. The food was delicious - everyone enjoyed their meal and the cocktails were also delicious - thank you Keith :)
we ate there last 2 years on our vacation and it was the one of our favorite meals this time it was not so good we both had the shrimp fra diavlo no spice no sauce and large pasta shells with bread we felt like we ate unflavored pasta and bread by the time we where done we did not want any dessert because we where so disapointed with the meal we talked to a couple on our way out and they had a simular experience with there meal not going back
Have driven past here several times, but never dined here until two nights ago. The food was excellent and the waitstaff was outstanding. They couldn't do enough for us. The grounds are beautiful and the ambiance of the restaurant itself was delightful. We certainly will return again.
On the Marsh never disappoints!! From the exquisite landscaping and gardens surrounding the restaurant to the beautiful presentation of truly delicious food with outstanding service accompanied by lovely piano music......On the Marsh is one of Kennebunkport's finest restaurants! Dine here on your next trip to the area.
We were at On The Marsh for our 21st Wedding Anniversary and felt the restaurant really helped us celebrate. We first arrived and were seated at the coziest, most romantic table in the restaurant and were greeted with happy Anniversary wishes and glasses of sparkling wine which was nice. We ordered cocktails, starters, entrees and desserts which were all quite delicious. The service was great- friendly and attentive. We have celebrated our anniversary many places over the years and this restaurant made it feel special. We would definitely return.
Lackluster in nearly every way. Lukewarm eggs (clearly fresh out of the sous vide cooker), lukewarm to cold Hollandaise sauce, utterly forgettable french toast, which barely even resembled french toast. Good coffee, which was not refilled in a timely manner.
Very cute location and fun interior.
General sentiment is pursue other options.
We took my in-laws for dinner on Mother's Day Eve. Amazing atmosphere - rustic meets elegant - Our meals were beautiful on the eye and satisfying to the palate. I wish I could give higher marks but I think the prices are much higher than they should be. And, believe me, I am not adverse to paying $40 for an entree if it is really something special!
Yes, the atmosphere is incredible, but in the end it should be about the food. The ingredients were fresh and prepared well - and in my case - a work of art on a plate: I had Pan Seared Sea Scallops Cauliflower and Leek Puree, Sauteed Pea Pods and Red Peppers; my husband had the Haddock à la Meuniere Citrus Mashed Potatoes, Sautéed Baby Spinach & Caper Beurre Blanc and my in-laws had Pan Seared SalmonRainbow Chard, Multigrain Rice and Truffle Spring Pea Sauce and 8oz Grilled Tenderloin
Smoked Gouda Mashed Red Potatoes, Grilled White Asparagus and Sauce Bordelaise.
Everyone said their dishes were very good, but not extraordinary. Perhaps we would have deemed them so had the price points been less. Accompanying rolls were bland and seemed overly warm making them crunchy rather than soft. Our server was ok.
The bar menu is much more reasonable and the bar area features a pianist. We decided to go again for that experience.
Newly promoted Romanian Sous-chef who knows the American palette. OUr 8 ounce sirloin (ho hum) was prepared to perfection. Our special table (#16) is a cozy, romantic nook especially designed for a romantic couple. And of course, our bubbly, unintrusive waitress Olivia, who added the light and love. It is a home run.
