    The vegetables and chips were cold. Linguine marinara hardly had any seafood. The bread arrived after our entree had been eaten. Our waiter was very good.

    Have been wanting to to the Waterfront for a while now. I booked it for our anniversary and I have to say I was quite underwhelmed. I expected better quality from the dishes and was quite disappointed. The food was definitely overpriced in relation to the quality. I’ve experienced the dining experience there now and I can confidently say I wouldn’t revisit.

    The food was good but not worth the money. Wine choice by the glass far too expensive. Very noisy. Why do restaurant designers insist on noisy materials instead of those that absorb noise.

    An upmarket but friendly place to meet and eat .The quality of the seafood is excellent -deliciously fresh and artfully cooked and presented.The complimentary little cups of chowder are delicious and with the bread and balsamic oil show consideration as well as generosity - balancing the prices which though not exorbitant are not exactly cheap .Do not come here if you want a cheap feed - Though the chowder is not only divine but generous with prawns and mussels and is only $25 ....and if one orders a salad as well -is a perfect lunch . The menu is not huge but will cater to those who want a pasta or even a curry .I have been quite a few times with various friends who love it - various dishes have been tried . The atmosphere and ambience is swish but utterly relaxed .Service is excellent and Joseph is the most delightful waiter and host ; unobtrusive, witty and very skilled in the art of service which adds hugely to the pleasure of the dining experience

    As one would expect from a largely seafood restaurant - the food was excellent, We had the tasting plate as well as a selection of crustaceans the were absolutely delicious, The wine list is extensive and the service was totally superb. In a world where one doesn't always get what one pays for, the Waterfront completely delivered on every front - except for the Tiramisu which was, by comparison, remarkably forgettable.

    Food is expensive in comparison with similar restaurants. Very noisy environment, hard to converse. Nothing extraordinary about this restaurant that would make you to come back. Seafood chowder, however, is recommended.

    Barramundi was disappointing when considering the price ( compared to Botticelli). Also Asian greens came in broth like a soup - difficult to share as a side dish. Overall not impressive for upmarket restaurant.
