Great food great ambiance great service !! Fresh seafood! Great collections of wine ! Fresh mussels and oysters ! Love my Chilean sea bass and a great duck horn Chardonnay ! Will always come back!! After s great shopping in South Coast Plaza a great dinner st Watergrill !
What a fun restaurant to dine in. Great appeal to the senses. Top of the list of things to bring me back include prompt and personal service, diverse wine selection, flavorful beet and pickled pear salad, and the crabcakes .
Breads were yummy, but sure can fill you up before your dinners arrive.
The main courses were well presented by with too much butter for our groups tastes.
Desert menu was all to heavy for us so we passed.
We love to eat fish, but only if it’s done right. This place does it to perfection every time. Pair this with the impeccable service, exquisite interior decor and you have the makings of a perfect experience.
This was my third time at Water Grill. I will definitely be back a fourth time. The Chilean Sea Bass was very good. Tender and tasty. The brussel sprout side was also delicious. Great place for a business meal or a date.
Had a great experience! Never tried this location, only one in LA. Loved it, loved the food, the waiter was knowledge and friendly and the ambience was perfect. Highly recommend and would definitely go there again!
Excellent from start to finish!
Food was not good. Too loud and cold
Angelina is the BEST waitress I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting!! Super fun and outstanding service!!
Fantastic food with incredible service. I just love this restaurant. One of my very favorites
Waiter lacked training to avoid walking up and interrupting us mid sentence
Salmon was oily and tasteless
Excellent shrimp cocktain
My waiter was amazing, he continuously asked us throughout the meal if everything was going well. He also gave us a complimentary cake at the end because it was my partners birrhday. The hostess greeted us kindly and was patient while we took photos too! Would highly recommend, professional staff and great ambiance.
The food and service were excellent, as always!
I am not a seafood lover but Water Grill is one of my favorite restaurants! The food, atmosphere, and drinks are amazing. It is a great date spot and a great place to catch up with friends. I really enjoy sitting at the bar and eating there as well.
Beautiful restaurant. Excellent Brunch and we had the best waiter!
Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food! the Chilean sea bass and butternut squash were exceptional, and our server (Shannon) was top notch!
Food service was extremely slow and the food quality was below average. Lobster roll was the worst we’ve experienced. Sea bass was a tad fishy.
Love the place, the food !!
This is the second time that I have eaten at Water Grill. I enjoyed it both times. The food was attractive and delicious. It was hard to choose. The cheese bread is to die for.
Service was amazing and great atmosphere!
Our service from Joe was super and the food was great! We had the mussels (x2) and the Ahi Tuna. The Dinner portion of the Ahi was on the lighter side so if you are looking for something more substantial I would consider another entree. Two of our guests actually ordered the mussels and a salad for their mains and were thrilled with that option! Ambience is upscale with a vibrant vibe. A little on the noisy side but you could still have a conversation. Overall a great experience and would definitely return!
I had the shrimp and grits. Too much grits and the shrimp were too small. Should be large shrimp with small amount of grits. Didn’t like the taste of the grits. Very expensive for what I got. Looked like an appetizer. Salad was nice. Butter squash was not cooked properly too hard. All I ate for 177 dollars was the small shrimp and a salad. My friends fish was over cooked but she was happy. You guys need to step it up ! Service was great with Shannon. Paid for valet 6 dollars then tipped him 4 dollars. Wow....overall disappointing but nice decorations, not enough to bring me back. Bobbie-Ann
Service very slow and inconsistent
Food is fabulous! Brought a friend for her first time and she loved it! Wonderful staff, incredible food!!!
The food here was amazing, as was the ambiance and design of the restaurant. The menu offers a rotation of day-fresh seafood, and was everything I look for in both a raw bar and cooked seafood offerings.
I selected Water Grill at the recommendation of a friend, it was my first visit and I was very impressed with the setting, layout and interior decor. Our server was friendly and was attentive. The only thing that took me aback a bit was the pricing, granted we included a $54 bottle of wine (which was at the lower price range of the wines available). However $174.00 for a party of two before gratuity is on the high side.
Wonderful food with great service from a very good waiter!!
Love the place!!!
Everything was fabulous.
Food was excellent, tried something different then last time!
Great place but service was slow. I had to ask for bread several times, which sounds silly, but my oysters were already on the table and I wanted something to offset them. People around me seemed to get quicker service. It has a mastros price but not the same quality of service. My steak was perfect but the Brussels sprouts were bad.
Food was just ok. Definitely not worthy of the price at least for my Chilean sea bass and seafood platter.
This place never disappoints! Steven our waiter was charming and knowledgeable—-we felt like we were a guest in his home. Crab nuggets are fantastic....there’s nothing on the menu that I don’t love!! And of course you can bring your own wine and there’s NO corkage fee!!!! Incredible dining experience every time!!
Nice dining option that is easily walkable from the performing arts center.
DELICIOUS food and we were very lucky to have Niles serve us on a day when we were celebrating 2 birthdays! The Bloody Marys are to die for!! The food quality is second to none. Don’t hesitate. Book it now!
Out first time at Water Grill. We will be back. We went for lunch. The restaurant is much nicer inside than Scott's. The food was excellent. Service excellent
Great as always
We have been here many times. Everything is always special and wonderful. We order different things almost every time. Whole fish. Salads. Stone crab claws. Highest recommendation!
Outstanding restaurant with outstanding hostess and servings team. Visited with business associates and all enjoyed the meal and the service. Downstairs entertainment was also top notch. I am anxious to go back a second time and take my wife.
Great fresh taste for both seafood and beef.
the particular waitress we have were quite busy and was very rude when we asker her about our orders.
Wonderful meal - exceptional service - can’t wait to go back!
The restaurant was really busy. We made reservation in advance for a table for you at 6:30. Unfortunately, We waited a long time for our food. My husband was so upset with the overall experience it ruined our date night. Perhaps another time.
