Water and Wine
Quiet, relaxed and service orientedWater and Wine has an interesting menu with enough diversity to satisfy most people. The view of the water is quite nice. Service provided by waiter "Larry" was exceptional and the assistants were competent and pleasant. Don't wait for a special occasion, but it fits that bill too. Short ribs were a standout! We will visit again!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem of a PlaceHas become our favorite restaurant. Always have a great meal and service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood except for the crying kidOverall food and service was good. We had a nice table overlooking the water, so that was nice. I wish the water was more forthcoming with how large the appetizers were, we would have ordered less to share. There was a loud crying baby next to our table that should not have been there - I would have expected the help to ask them to take the baby out side. Overall all nice place and I would return too give it another shot.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of 5 celebratingWe were a party of 5 celebrating a birthday. When we arrived, we were promptly seated at a great table with a view of the lake. Our waiter was patient (5 women) and friendly without being too familiar. The food was really good. Two of us went with the Prix Fixe meal and we were very pleased. I opted for the NY strip steak, which was wonderfully seasoned and cooked perfectly. The other meals chosen were the rack lamb chops, the pasta with Lobster sauce and the Divers scallops. Everything was delicious and the portions were very generous. We will definitely go back there.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prix fixe lunch is basicallyThe prix fixe lunch is basically the same each time I go but the food is always very good (I especially like the garlic shrimp appetizer and the organic salmon main course). The service is excellent. My three friends and I celebrate our birthdays there and we have all gone at other times also.. The prix fixe price is good for what is offered except I think adding $4.00 for a tea bag is a bit much. The only downside is that the noise level is very loud when fully occupied.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICEMarino gave us great service. He was professional, kind, attentive, and friendly. When I called him he was there in a quick flash with a smile on his face. The food was excellent and all of your staff from the parking attendant to the person who poured the water was excellent. You have a great staff. There is only one little comment. I wish your wine list had more choice of slections. Great restaurant. My friends are also going to come there. Hats off to Water and Wine. And Marino4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lovely Dining ExperienceThis was one of the best dining experiences we have had in a very long time. So glad we chose it to celebrate my dad's milestone birthday. All four of us opted for the prix fix menu and it was OUTSTANDING. My mom said it was the best salmon she has ever had and my husband enjoyed his short ribs very much. My appetizer, stuffed mushrooms, was great. It was enough for a meal! Our server was charming, witty and friendly. They remembered it was my dad's birthday (many places would have forgotten) and when dessert was served, they included a candle, good wishes and more conversation. We ordered a bottle of wine at a reasonable price plus my dad said his Beefeater martini was perfect and generous. Will definitely return!! GREAT!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious! TheThe food was delicious! The service was great. If I had to find something to complain about, would be that there was a big party, which was kind of loud. Also, was a little warm in the room but once we addressed it to our Waiter, it was more comfortable.
2nd time there, will definately be returning.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing dinnerWhat an amazing restaurant, it's located right on the river so you can enjoy your meal with a view of the water. The food was delicious and the service was excellent, we will definately be going back4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is wonderful, with aFood is wonderful, with a diverse menu. Service is impeccable and the view at night is great.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMi have been here several timesi have been here several times before and found that i did not enjoy much on the menu except for steamed or fra diavalo lobster. i was so pleasantly surprised this time. first of all they renovated the restaurant since i was last there and it looks so much better. coincidentally they did not have lobster, i was told due to the season the prices had gone too high. that initial disappointment quickly subsided as i tasted each dish that came to the table. my wife and i both had a salad with grilled eggplant and zucchini in it, really delicious. my scallops with farro were prepared perfectly, my friend's pasta was also really good. item's from the raw bar were fresh and served perfectly. i cannot wait to go back.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here, very niceFirst time here, very nice and lived up to all the hype and good reviews. Only drawback was that at 7pm on a Saturday night we were the youngest couple there. I guess this place is more for the older crowd which is fine but typically we like to be where the younger crowds good. However the food was very good, view of the reservoir was very nice as we got "the last table by the window" and service was outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the service was excellentWhile the service was excellent and the food very good, the decor was outdated and would have been better suited for a much less formal restaurant. The meal was very good with the exception of the scallops, which were overcooked. The waitress was also very friendly and knowledgable, which made for a very nice dining experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience. FoodGreat dining experience.

Thank you.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy Lakeside DiningThis restaurant sits on the lake where the views from your table make for a special dining experience. The food is prepared well and served in a timely manner-not too rushed and timed just right. There are round tables for large parties and small tables that make it intimate for a party of two. The quality and selection of food and wine is exemplary. The prices resemble New York restaurant pricing, but the food is worth it and presented beautifully.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the seafood tower whichI had the seafood tower which was excellent.
