    From the moment we were seated this restaurant was far beyond the best I have ever experienced. Service was outstanding, cocktail and wine selections were diverse and the food was magnificent. The house salad was a treat for the tastebuds and our entrees (red snapper, scallops drizzeled with carmel, chilean sea bass and OMG the bone in ribeye) were equally a culinary feat there ae no words to describe. This restaurant experience was, without a doubt in my mind, a gift from heaven.

    My son requested that his birthday dinner be at Watercoulors as a prior visit had been exceptional. What a let down. The steaks,strips,Tbone,and porterhouse lacked something and were at best bland. None of the juicy taste of aged steaks from a high end restaurant. The T-bone and porterhouse were thin to say the least. Not the thick juicy ones we're used to getting. Overall a big letdown .

    The staff was great, nice restaurant with a great waterfront view. My wife and I paid $150.00+ for a scallop dinner and a fillet dinner (with drinks and apps.) We don't mind paying for awesome food, but this fell a bit short of awesome. The lobster ravioli was the worst thing ever. The meals were good overall, not the best thing ever, but quite good. The crab cake was the best crab cake my wife and I have ever found, we have had them all over the east coast, this was the best by far. The next best was in a little place on Martha's Vineyard, we may return just to have a drink and the crab cake!

    We had a party of six celebrating two birthdays and were very pleased with the service and food. We ordered crab cakes (not to be missed) and mussels for appetizers. Both were delicious. Entrees included the special steaks --- always perfect! Sides we ordered: asparagus, hash browned potatoes, and onion straws, all excellent as were the House and Caesar salads. A delicious huge slice of chocolate mousse cake with two candles topped off a fantastic meal and evening!

    My wife and myself were there for our 35th anniversary and was very pleased. The waiter was right on top of things as well as being very knowledgeable about the the wine, adult beverages and the food. And the food from start to finish was right on. The creme brulee was so so good, i would recommend to anyone who likes it. All in all we had a very nice anniversary dinner.

    Being there at a slow lunchtime, I surmise that this place could be very nice in the evening. The locale is fine, on an island shore, having a nice view of a bay with a noise-blocking glass wall cutting out the sound of jet-skis. The menu was sorted by how long preparation would take and the food was pretty good. Detracting were the facts that the customers were served in the bar area where conversations were easily overheard and the music was more suitable for later in the day.

    Very tasty steak. Cooked as I directed. Vegetables were excellent. They had a small table for my two children near ours so that we could dine "alone" and the kids could have the feeling of being a bit grown up. All in all, very good restaurant.

    The food was great, exceptional and a good value. We were a party of four, of which we had chicken, fish and beef entrees. All were wonderful, as were the appetizers and desserts. (The chocolate mouse cake is unbelieveable.) I think that were were particularly lucky though. Our server could tell that we were very laid back and easy-going. She joined our atmosphere with quips and warmth, and we loved her. The service she provided could not have been better; she knew the menu well, including the cocktails, and helped us choose.

    The food continues to be good, but the environment has changed. In the Watercolour reboot (+ Grillhouse) they have lowered prices and attempted to engage more families in the dining area. That is fine, but we've enjoyed the location over the years due to high quality food and high quality service. We typically "dress" for a nice dinner. When we visited most folks were wearing shorts and sandals. Kids table were mixed throughout - rather than certain areas as they have attempted in the past. Service was slower and less attentive. Perhaps in an attempt to optimize cost there are more tables per waiter now. Generally speaking we'll probably not make the 45min drive here for special occasions again. If you're close,then you'll enjoy it.

    This is one of those places that you might never know exists, but once you find it, you regret that it took you so long to visit. Looking out over the water watching dolphins and fish while eating, impeccable service, and AMAZING food, you will make this one of your go-to places when you want something special.

    Great place. Great food. Reasonable prices. Drunks yelling in bar slightly interfered with quiet dinner but no big deal. Only issue was temperature...BLASTING AC made us uncomfortably cold. Memo to management: worry about making the customers comfortable...not keeping the employees cool while they are buzzing around.

    For the prices they charge for steak, I expected better. I ordered my steak medium but the middle was medium rare. I couldn't eat it. They are a steakhouse so I expected them to be able to prepare steak better. Our reservation was for 8:30p and we were seated immediately. They were replacing the windows of the hotel so the noise level was very loud. Could hear drills the entire time. Have me a headache. The service was excellent and I was very pleased everyone we interacted with.

    This "in hotel" spot is on the 1st floor the the Marriott Suites on Sand Key. We also ate breakfasts there and enjoyed the upgrade, as well as the plain breakfast buffet. Since it was past our normal dining time, our dinner was a shared dinner, and Mike had the kitchen split our salad and our meal. The food was very good, as was the service.

    From the moment we arrived our whole dinner experience was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I shared the crab cake to start, more like a tower, which was the best I have ever had! Wish I knew how to make the lime gel which was so tasty. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and and great as a steak could be. Our server, Gina, is a plus to your establishment. She is there to serve and serve she did! Thank you for a wonderful evening!
