66 Water Street reviews from OpenTable diners
- Went on Mother's Day. TheEnjoyEatingVIPDined on 5/12/2013Went on Mother's Day. The prixe fix menu was limited [i.e. same price for salad (which didn't contain any meat) or burger]. When we first arrived we were seated in a dark corner by the bar although there were other tables available. I asked to be moved and they accomodated us. The food was good (we ordered burgers and my mom ordered the grilled romaine salad) but nothing out of the ordinary.
- Not for BrunchSMB74Dined on 5/12/2013The food was fair but the most apt description..its a great Bar..if you want to drink or eat at one its the spotSpecial Features:
- We were in the DUMBO areaBarbaraVIPDined on 3/20/2013We were in the DUMBO area at night for a photography group and needed a restaurant to have a quick dinner. The food was great and the service was also very good. We would return.
- We went here for brunch forKrisDined on 3/17/2013We went here for brunch for my daughter's 23rd birthday - which also happened to be St. Patrick's Day. The staff was super nice but there were a few bungles with our order. One of our party of 5 had to wait quite a while to get his entree as the order was not put in. There was a fair amount of confusion with regard to who our server was. We had fun but the service did detract from our experience.Special Features:
- Convenient for pre-theaterMarthaVIPDined on 3/1/2013Convenient for pre-theater dinner before seeing a play at St. Ann's Warehouse.
- It was the perfect settingOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 2/14/2013It was the perfect setting for Val day my girlfried loved itSpecial Features:
- Exceptional Dining ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/14/2013Went here on Valentines day, had a special prefix only menu not a whole lot of options but everything was absolutely delicious (you could tell the chef put a LOT of effort into everything served, from presentation to ingridients--great job chef). The staff was the most attentive without bordering on being obtrusive. I've never seen a restaurant staff do such a great job! Kudos to them! Taking evertyhing into consideration, the ambiance, the great staff, and the quality of the food, and how everything came together to make an unforgotable valentines day restaurant experience I would 100% recommend the water street lounge.Special Features:
- Dead at the Pre-Theater HourhealthlawVIPDined on 1/19/2013Perhaps they are still recovering from Sandy, or perhaps pre-theater is too early for DUMBO, but Water Street was empty when we ate there on Saturday. Despite a very friendly hostess/server, the food was mediocre pub grub at best. Soup had to be sent back as too salty to eat (they were gracious and took it off the bill with no argument). Scallops/pasta was salty too, but edible. Burger was OK, but nothing to write home about. Dessert choices were minimal so we went to the chocolate shop next door, and enjoyed the best food of the evening. Water Street was pleasant enough to hang out in, and maybe the place comes to life later in the evening. But I would not recommend it for an early pre-theater meal.
- The food was very good althoughOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 12/4/2012The food was very good although the menu was limited due to the aftermath of hurricane Sandy. It would have been nice if we had been made aware of that prior to arriving for the dinner. The service was a little spotty which was surprising considering that we were only one of two occupied tables there. An request for "no anchovies" on an order for Caesar's salad was forgotten and, when it was brought to the waitress's attention, she immediately took the salad back to exchange it. Unfortunately, it was obvious that the replacement salad was the same one with the anchovies removed which left the fishy taste. Not good customer service. All in all, though, the meal was enjoyable and I would recommend this restaurant to friends.Special Features:
- Brilliant recovery from Sandy.OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 12/3/2012Brilliant recovery from Sandy. Would have given food five stars but not offering full range last week due to storm damage. Can only get better when the full kitchen is back in use. Wonderful service and good range of ales on tap.Special Features:
- The only reason to go herePortiaVIPDined on 10/26/2012The only reason to go here is that there is almost nowhere else in the area.
- The food was really tastyOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 10/26/2012The food was really tasty and the service excellent! We enjoyed our visit.Special Features:
- I had never been to the BrooklynOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 10/25/2012I had never been to the Brooklyn Heights section before and picked this restaurant based on its web site. The staff was friendly and the food was excellent. The night we were there they had a warm peanut butter white chocolate brownie (OK, it wasn't brown) that was fabulous. There is an active bar and it can get a little noisy. We'd certainly return if in the area.Special Features:
- Great quirky restaurant withOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 10/18/2012Great quirky restaurant with an interesting menu. Deceptively large yet intimate in feel I see where the chef is going and while he's not there yet he is on e path. Worth a trip. Ask for Danny.Special Features:
- The food was good, but ourOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 10/12/2012The food was good, but our server was more concerned with chatting with the manager and other waiters than taking care of us. It took far too long after we were seated for her to stop by our table. It wasn't a busy night, and we waited a good while for our drinks to come out. The food was out quickly however (probably because it was delivered by a runner and not our server).
- Don't go here...no way!!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/29/2012Bartenders were inattentive and disinterested . Got a table only to be informed that almost everything we ordered was sold out and that the kitchen was so backed up there would be an indefinite delay in getting whatever was left. We had a show time to make so we just walked out.The service was ridiculous and this place is obviously managed very poorly.A major disappointment and we will never go back and will caution our friends as well.
- Great location and the foodTatesbugVIPDined on 7/14/2012Great location and the food was beautifully prepared. Not an elegant restaurant, but lots of fun and hip atmosphere.Special Features:
- Great local find under theOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 7/4/2012Great local find under the Brooklyn Bridge! The added surprise/attraction was a live Jazz Combo! Exquisite!Special Features:
- They were out of three keyOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 5/13/2012They were out of three key entrees by 7:30pm, then took almost 45 minutes to serve appetizers. All the tables were waiting a long time for the food. We would have been fine with waiting, had we received an explanation. Waiter did not manage expectations properly, nor did he do anything to make things better.
- Great food & wonderful ambiance.OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/13/2012Great food & wonderful ambiance. A little gem in Dumbo...I'll definitely be back!Special Features:
- The music was so loud andOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/15/2012The music was so loud and blaring it was hard to talk to the person next to you. Loud 1980's music.
- Worth your timeOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 4/6/2012The shrimp and grits were good. We had to flag our waitress down to get her t bring us a check and dessert but other than that everything was great.Special Features:
- We had both BBQ rib itemsOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/24/2012We had both BBQ rib items - excellent. Red velvet cake -delicious! Servers were very pleasant, courteous and attentive. Casual atmosphere and decor. Would definitely go back!Special Features:
- DisappointedBBQ4BkfastVIPDined on 3/23/2012Being a Southern transplant in Brooklyn, I looked forward to eating at Water St Restaurant, as they billed themselves as 'Soutern food with a twist.' Unfortunately, it seems that much of the food lacked any seasoning or character. My party dined there during the 'Dine In Brooklyn' promotion, and honestly, we were pleasantly surprised that the prix fixe included all items on the menu. Unfortunately, however, they seemed a bit bland. Fried deviled eggs. Sounds good, but didn't really deliver anything interesting. Collards and mashed potatoes bland, as well. The salmon and ribs tasted fine. Dessert was 'chef's choice' and ended up as a Red Velvet Cake. Tasted a bit strange, since they basically dyed a vanilla cake (had not cocoa).
- Great service & mouth wateringOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/22/2012Great service & mouth watering food at a great price.Special Features:
- We must have caught them on a bad ntopshelfnycVIPDined on 3/19/2012We must have caught them on a bad night. Food & service were ok, but they were out of almost everything
- I really enjoyed the diningOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/17/2012I really enjoyed the dining experience. The food was excellent and the service was good. The drink selections could have been better but overall I would definitely recommend the restaurant. ISpecial Features:
- The restaurant most convenientOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 2/28/2012The restaurant most convenient to St. Anne's Warehouse (a two minute walk away) serves an interesting variety of "Southern-Cajun" dishes that even a vegetarian can enjoy. We found the food to be very good, from healthy salads to sinful deserts. The wine list is extremely limited but fair at the price. Service is low-key (positively so) and friendly. On two visits for pre-theatre dinner the place was no more than half-full,
- Ehhhh....It will do.OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/24/2012While the staff is pleasant and attentive, the food was sadly just OK. Having been raised in Atlanta, I know Southern fare. Having lived in New Orleans for six years, I know Creole and Canjun cuisine. The gumbo was acceptable, and I could have found better jambalaya at The Cheesecake Factory. The upside is that it wasn't packed on a Friday night which, if typical, means you can be seated right away and not feel pressured if you want dinner to linger...for the great company, not the food itself.Special Features:
- For a pub, their southernHHellerVIPDined on 2/24/2012For a pub, their southern cooking is really good. Sorry St. Ann's Warehouse is moving quite far from Water Street.Special Features:
- We had a party of 10, foodOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/18/2012We had a party of 10, food was very good, interesting menu selection, something for every taste but the service, or rather lack thereof, ruined the experience. My husband got up three separate times to track down a server. We are a patient group & having such a good time, perhaps they were short-staffed that day but the restaurant was not very busy so there's no excuse there. Dinner took almost 2.5hrs & that was without dessert because we couldn't wait anymore for service.
- We'll be back !OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/13/2012Service was great! Nice waitress who gave us our meals half off because we waited! Very generous and the Mac and cheese is to die for! I came back two days later HahahaSpecial Features:
- Brooklyn Creole /Cajun TreasureOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 1/22/2012If you have the affinity for Creole / Cajun cuisine, place the Water Street Street Restaurant On Your Food Priority List ! "MANDITORY~~~~Shrimp N' Grits"Special Features:
- I loved the location of WaterOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 1/20/2012I loved the location of Water Street Restaurant and Lounge, however I was disappointed by how loud it was. I wanted a quiet dinner and was distracted by the volume and closeness of the bar to our table. I ordered a drink that was featured on the menu online, but missing from the restaurant menu. They said they could make it, but the drink was very weak and so I chose a different one, which was also very weak. The mac & cheese and okra was very good, but the turkey meatloaf was dry and not very tasty. The salmon was cooked really well and the mashed potatoes were yummy.Special Features:
- Good spotNYCJDined on 1/19/2012Truthfully I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here but it is a very agreeable place to stop on your way to an event at St. Ann's Warehouse. There's a Cajun theme to the menu, with a couple of variations - satisfying portions, reasonably priced. Quite an extensive, and interesting, cocktail, wine and beer selection.
- DevineOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 1/12/2012The food was good, but it could have been hotter. However, what made me give this Resturant 5 Star, Outstanding rating is the desert. The chef ( who looks like a teenager) made this DEVINE RedVelvet Pudding!!! OMG to die for! It was the most amazing thing I have every had in my life. We are going back, hopefully he will make this desert again while we are there.Special Features:
- Nice location and relaxedGeofferwokVIPDined on 1/7/2012Nice location and relaxed dining ambiance near Barge Music. Cool Dumbo neighborhood.Special Features:
- Decent fare with a Southern flairstenroVIPDined on 12/31/2011I would consider the place a solid good, but not great. Fried devil eggs were prepared well but needed a little more flavor. Their burger which comes with cheddar and bacon is cooked medium-well. It's a nice size burger and the cheese is melted and bacon cooked well. However, the burger is on the verge of dry which could be rectified if cooked to order (medium would be my choice.) The meat could also use a little more flavor (maybe some salt and pepper.) The natural-cut fries are tasty but should be a little crisper. Unfortunately that makes the $14 price tag seem a bit high- more like a $10 burger. The red velvet cake was good- the whipped cream placed on top tasted fresh but seemed a little dense. Service was attentive and good.Special Features:
