This meal was not only the best we had on our trip but also the best meal we have had ever and we have dined at the best restaurants all over the country for 25 years. The ambience is country French and Patrick, our server, is the ultimate professional. The filet was so tender and the dessert subtly sweet .... More

We went to On the Marsh for our 15 year anniversary and our parents 40th, and were treated spectacularly at this wonderful restaurant. The food was 5 star and the service from our waiter Frank was exceptional. We had appetizers ranging from oysters, creton to duck confit, followed by veal chops, scallops and mouth watering dessert. A must go for... More

On the Marsh in Kennebunk, ME has the perfect blend of casual, cozy elegance, friendly and efficient service, ambience, and great food. Whoever chose the decor and furnishings in this place did an excellent job of creating an atmosphere of intimacy and coziness without over-doing it. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we had an after-dinner drink at the... More

The staff was attentive and service was excellent. The food is amazing. From the complimentary glass of champagne (Happy Anniversary) to the Blueberry dessert, we couldn't fault anything. Really nice way... More

Patrick has the finest sangria hands down. And though I'm a scotch or gin drinker I can't help but savor Patrick's sangria. One can not sip it...the taste is perfection. We dine at the bar because not only does Patrick know how to run a bar, but he also knows how to take care of his patrons. I highly recommend... More

If you're ever in the Kennebunkport area looking for a nice upscale restaurant head straight for On the Marsh.The decor, lighting, and music create a very intimate and romantic setting. The outstanding dish for us was the mussels in cream sauce. The beef tenderloin was also perfectly cooked and the roast beef hash side dish was exceptional. Service was friendly... More

The minute you sit down, already you know you can't wait to go back! Atmosphere is welcoming and beautiful - doesn't matter which room you sit in. The staff - amazing friendly & efficient. The food - of course, forgot why we were there --- one delicious bite after another. 2 people had the scallops - cooked to their requests.... More

Wine list extensive:) the sides for main entree were so good- roasted tomato, sweetpotato tart (amazing) however fish was average. Very little flavors and overcooked. The... More
