Nice quiet restaurant with
Nice quiet restaurant with a small bar and dining room. Food was very good--we really enjoyed the house chicken wings and the tapas. Their fine spirit selection is limited, but then again its not really that kind of place. Wine list small, but it has a good selection. The service was wonderful. Our server April was very pleasant and definitely made the experience a memorable one.
Overall, the dining experience was fantastic. Its a nice place for a quiet romantic dinner.

Worth seeking out.
Creative menu. Excellently prepared food. A warm friendly atmosphere. Nice selection of featured wine for only $15.00 a bottle.

Better than ever
We really enjoyed our last visit. Food was a notch up from an already good rating. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. We really have come to enjoy this spot.

We had anther wonderful dinner before going to the theater. The owner Lisa Waterstone makes sure that everything is perfect. She makes it a point to stop at every table in the restaurant to ask if everyone is happy. The bartender mixes up a mean drink! Whatever you want, they will accommodate you. Keep it up Lisa, We will be back soon!

Waterstone is my favorite restaurant in Baltimore. The owner and the staff have created a warm environment that feels as comfortable as your favorite sweater with an air of easy sophistication. The food is excellently prepared and the flavors blend naturally. We had an assortment of tapas. The Dolmades are amazing. We also had the lamb chops, steak points, steak tips, asparagus, artichokes, mac and cheese and a dessert. I would recommend every one of the small plates. I highly recommend Waterstone.

We had tickets to a concert at the Hippodrome and wanted to dine somewhere reasonable close before the show. Web site looked good, menu looked good, and we could be there in time for Happy Hour.
Happy hour drinks were priced right and the happy hour hors de voures were great.
Our waitress was friendly from the moment we walked in and responded to all of our requests without any hesitation.
The menu made a dinner choice tough as there was a good variety to choose from. We each made the right decision and our meals were perfect. We left filled and tuned up for a good concert.
Will definintely go back there again, concert or no concert.

Waterstone is a great find in a slightly dicey neighborhood on the far west end of Mount Vernon. Good Mediterranean food. Small place, so reservations are advised. Also, parking can be an issue. No parking lot, so parking on the street is the only option.

Always love Waterstone's ambiance, the staff and the food.

Four of us dined at 5:00 pm
Four of us dined at 5:00 pm (opening time) on a recent Sunday at this tiny restaurant exhibiting Old World charm, knowledgeable and helpful service, and a varied menu of delicious choices accompanied by a wine list of sufficient variety to have something for everyone. There are a few outdoor tables, but the weather was hot, and we were not offered outdoor dining (OK by me!). We will return.

great food and service
excellent food, loved the tapas and sangria. not in the best area of town - we sat outside and wish we hadn't. too loud with the hospital right next to it

A Great Find!
I took my husband there for Father's Day and he and my daughter absolutely loved it! It is very quaint and there is the cutest fountain in the dining area. The waiter was great and very accommodating. The food was also wonderful especially the sweet potato fries. We will definitely be returning!

We arrived at 7pm on a Tuesday, but still, I was surprised it wasn't busier. The food was really good. We had tapas style lamb chops, steak, chicken, falafel balls - all so good. The happy hour cocktails were great also. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would go back again if ever in Baltimore. Definitely worth checking out. Highly recommend it.

The food was phenomenal and the service outstanding.

Great Food but service is lacking
We walked in and the gentleman behind the bar acknowledged us and said that he would be right with us, he checked the reservation but found out that he did not check us in on Open Table. He took our drink order and then seemingly disappeared, he was not very attentive, and the place was not busy so it seemed odd. He was polite enough, we liked that they brought a water bottle to the table - especially since he did not come back often. The food was great, as always, this reinforced that you should not go here if you are in a hurry.

I feel like people often overlook this place because of it's location, but don't let that deter you! Great happy hour specials, tasty food and a nice ambience. Would have loved to eat outside but it was raining, however the inside is just as great. Service was wonderful, yummy cocktails and sangria.

Quiet and tucked away neighborhood
Quiet and tucked away neighborhood gem! Food was delicious, especially the grilled calamari. Service was great. Owner Lisa was very friendly and asked us our opinion, being that it was our first time there. Will definitely go back there again!

We stayed at the Biltmore down the street and was pleasantly surprised with this quaint restaurant.

Mediterrian Mecca for Mobtown
The service, ambiance and food were all outstanding. The menu offers a wonderful variety without overloading you. First through thirtieth date safe
Dining is intimate enough for small parties of 6 or less. Great for couples.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff, service and food were magnificent! Everyone was so friendly and efficient. We will definitely return.

Treasure around the corner
I wish I discovered Waterstone Bar and Grille sooner. It provides a most delightful evening out. The food is fantastic with several vegetarian options (a personal favorite), yet the service was even better. The entire staff was friendly and made my entire dinner party feel special. I look forward to returning soon!

Waterstone was a wonderful
Waterstone was a wonderful surprise. The restaurant is very attractive, comfortable, and welcoming, as was the staff. The menu is an adventure in gastronomical treats. Indeed, we loved everything we ordered and look forward to our next visit.

Waitress was a little scattered
Food was great - waitress was kind of scattered. She would ask us how things were but leave before we could say, "We'd like..." okay, she's gone... and then have to wait till she came back.

We brought a large group (14)
We brought a large group (14) in for dinner and couldn't have been more pleased with the arrangement, the food, and the service. It was a good menu for all of us with some of us sharing several tapas selections and others ordering full entrees. The owner came by to make sure we were well taken care of (which is always nice). The food was excellent and while the wait staff was busy, they did a great job of keeping up with all of our food and drink needs. It made for a great celebration.

New waiter - needs more training
We had been to Waterstone a few weeks before and had a much better dining experience. It was our waiter's first day and it took him quite a while to get to us. And then he seemed to have forgotten us and we had to ask another server to take our order. He didn't know the menu very well, particularly the wine list.
He DID get us new bread after we mentioned that ours was a bit stale. And it was fresh, so that was good.
However, he cleaned the table next to us with Windex. I was glad the food hadn't come yet, because the smell was rather unpleasant and would have been off-putting if we were eating.

Very nice dinner before show
We were skeptical from the various reviews on OT and Yelp - mostly either very good for very bad. We had a very good dinner, before a show on a Sat nite. The service was very attentive, the menu is actually quite impressive, and the food and drink was really quite good. We left stating that we'd come back, tell our friends, and give positive reviews. It's a bit off the beaten path but you should definitely try it.

Another Great Dinner
My daughter and I had dinner at the Waterstone because we were attending the "Girls with Guitars" concert at the Hippodrome. The Waterstone is 5 minutes from the Hippodrome. My daugher is a vegetarian and the menu has plenty of selections for her to choose from. We both love the Mediteranian flare to the menu and as usual, the meal and service were outstanding. The white sangria was delicious too. I highly recommend the Waterstone. Can't wait to go back!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner for the price. Also, the restaurant is just outside of the beaten path, making parking much easier than in other parts of Mt. Vernon.

I have been to this restaurant before and the lamb chops were great. Took Dad for his birthday. Chose this place because we were going to Center Stage afterward and I had a coupon for 1/2 second entrée. It was pretty empty on a Tuesday night, but service was great and personal. It was a little dark for my liking but nice. Waitress brought wrong dessert but quickly remedied the issue once it was brought to her attention. I loved my lamb chops. Dad wanted his to be piping hot. They aren't supposed to be. Was nice place to have a quiet birthday celebration.

Lovely Night Out
Second time dining here and it was just as good as the first time.
The food is delicious, I recommend the tapas. They are great portions and you get to try different dishes.
The atmosphere is pleasant, dim lighting, a water fountain in the background.
The owner even came over to the table for a chat.

A Neighborhood Gem
I often have guests from out of town and the Waterstone is always a good and dependable place within the neighborhood to take folks to eat. Friendly staff, good food, reasonable cost, what more can one ask for in a restaurant.
