Diner Reviews
  • "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 year he ordered the T-bone steak and was very pleased with every bite. Hope to visit again for our 27th wedding anniversary in August. Be Blessed and keep up the good work and serving some of the best food in town."

  • "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!"

  • "Neglecting my brother and I for 15 minutes while the assigned server repeatedly walked by could not be remedied. It appears the restaurant is losing it's ability to provide both good food and service. With other options available, it will take a focused leadership effort for the restaurant to capitalize on the opportunity it has to be top notch."

  • "Took the family and everyone really enjoyed the dinner. The bread basket is awesome and the steaks were superb. Lobster ravioli was a disappointment. Other than that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal."

  • "Watercolour sits on the water and has fabulous view from every table. There is also an outside deck for dining. I have been twice before and encountered to-die-for food and impeccable service. This time our server was a little disappointing and while he said he had been there 5 years, he forgot our appetizer and brought out entrees when only half through our salads. He bought us a round of drinks to try and make up for it. I Iove this place and will return, but at these prices these "misses" should not occur. I must add that our steaks were superb! I rated noise level "energetic" because a senior citizen birthday dinner was happening and they were quite boisterous. This is usually a very romantic quiet dining experience."

  • "Our first visit to this restaurant almost started off bad. We had looked on the website menu and saw lamb chops, which is my wife's favorite. When we arrived we were seated quickly and the service was great. As we went through the menu, my wife noticed there were no lamb chops on the menu. When our waiter (Mike) return she questioned what happened with the lamb chops. Mike said the menu had changed two weeks To our surprise Mike returned about 5 minutes later and told my wife the chef would make her the lamb chops. She received two large double boned American lamb chops, I had the bone-in rib-eye, everything was cooked to perfection. The sides were made for two, we had mushrooms and potatoes. We had a wonderful experience. We will return"

  • "Love the new menu!! The crab cake appetizer is THE must have item. There is now a smaller crab cake you can get with a steak and it's just as good. If you are looking for more of a quiet dining experience make sure you ask for the upper dining room otherwise your table may be among the lower tables in the bar area which can get lively depending on the sporting events on the tv's. The service has always been excellent. I would go back in a hot minute next time I'm in the Clearwater area."

  • "I have not been in Watercolour for a year or so but remembered their excellent steaks. They have now revamped the restaurant, looks really nice and in daytime view to intercoastal is fabulous. Service was good. The steak itself was still good but now they have some strange oregano theme going on, the oregano in salad dressing was overpowering (and salad was "swimming" in the dressing) and the excellent spicy oil mixture they use on steaks was this time also having oregano and also olives. I did not like them."

  • "My wife and I booked this restaurant for a delayed Valentine's dinner. We were travelling to Clearwater on V'day and decided to make this our special night. I had been looking forward to a sublime steak dinner that evening, since this place was supposed to be renowned for it's meat dishes. And now the disappointment, I ordered the bone-in rib eye and could not have been more unhappy with the meal. The meat literally had no taste and the topping was an amalgam of sautéed onions and olives, hard to take! I was unable to finish the meat, and that NEVER happens with a good rib and me. As for my wife, she enjoyed a lobster pasta dish that was quite good. All in all an expensive meal that was a major disappointment!"

  • "My wife and I went to Watercolour Steakhouse for Valentine's Day dinner. Everything was great from the moment we arrived. We were seated promptly. The wait staff was very attentive and checked on us regularly. Two managers also stopped by our table to see how we were enjoying our evening. The filet steaks were cooked to perfection and went great with the wonderfully prepared lobster tail. This is one of the best dining experiences I have had at an upscale restaurant. The also have a great wine list. We plan to go back to Watercolour's again and we will be recommending it to others."

  • "We do not usually dine in the hotel restaurant but it was late and we were impressed with the hotel so far. Watercolours was beautifully set overlooking the water with a rounded glass window. Our server, Gina was amazing. She took every care to be sure we ordered the right thing and made the perfect suggestions. We never needed a thing and yet we barely noticed she was there. The food was incredible. We had steaks and crabcakes. The steaks were of the best quality and were as good the next day. The crab cake was the best we have ever had and had flaky crab meat with no fillers and a key lime sauce to die for! We had mini dessert cups which matched perfectly with a perfectly crafted cappuccino and we were not rushed from our table."

  • "We dined on the grand re-opening night. While the food was excellent, the wait staff was a little too over-attentive, interrupting our dining by asking how everything was too frequently. Still a great steak house with filet mignon and cowboy steaks cooked to perfection. Nice presentation if the greek style salad, only did not realize a chopped salad also came with the meal. Server not too clear on that extra. All in all a nice dining experience."

  • "This used to be a great place to dine for steak. Our service Saturday night was some of the worst and slowest I ever experienced. Drinks were left empty, it took a long time to be greeted at our table and the food service was extremely slow. Not up to par for a $165.00 dinner. Don't waste your time or money."
