It was a great lunch venue to celebrate a birthday. Will have to come back and try it for dinner.
Our Thanksgiving dinner at the Waterline have normally been a fantastic affair, excellent food and very good surroundings. This year we got seated at a round table for 6 even there are only 4 in our party. That made it very difficult to have a conversation, specially if you add the VERY high noise level. Adding that both the turkey and the fish were dry. We came away from there wondering what had happened to a great restaurant.
Very nice - we would come back
Great Sunday brunch location - a beautiful view out over the channel sitting outside as we enjoyed bottomless mimosas at a leisurely pace. Interesting way to do brunch - and unique. Unlimited fruits, cheese, bread, and charcuterie. Then you have a choice of five entrees they deliver shortly after you ask. Then bottomless desserts. WILL go back again!
The setting is beautiful. We were there on a Sunday for their brunch. Would try there regular menu. Look forward to coming back
It was a warm day, no one in the indoor dining room and only 2 tables being served outdoors. Waiters did not attend to us nearly as often as we needed or wanted them. Poor service.
The food was fine but the service very poor. Not a friendly atmosphere. Expect more from a resort hotel where I was paying over $500 a night for a room.
Can’t beat the bay view. Cocktails were spot on. White bass was so visually appealing and tasty that my wife made me switch to her lamb which I gladly enjoyed. Lemon crumble with gelato satisfied both our sweet cravings
Great atmosphere perfect for intimate gatherings and romantic dates loved the service very attentive never saw my glass empty. I feel the seafood selection to be in ok quality shrimp was delicious. And the desserts sooo good will definitely come back in the future. Thank you waterline!
Beautiful location for Sunday Brunch! Excellent service, good food (highly recommend the crab cake eggs benedict) and lovely atmosphere. The bottomless mimosas are a big plus too!
The ambiance is the best part of dining there. The filet mignon was excellent but expensive, my salad was OK.
Nieces 25th birthday.
A fantastic gourmet-dining experience and right on the water. Even for a weeknight the number of other diners was low, which is why I’m writing this review: Waterline appears to be rather an undiscovered gem.
Everything was amazing! Food, service, music!!! Can’t wait for our next visit.
Our server (Victoria) was very good, will definetly be back!
The waiter we had was a little rude, I know we all have bad days but do not bring it to work.
Best Breakfast I’ve had in a long time.
Everything is excellent from the service to food and drinks. Highly recommend
We stayed a bit late and was not offered dessert menu if there were any... otherwise overall service and food was good.
the Service was not very good, the waiter seem a bit lost and our food was just okay.
Daughters going away lunch
Crab benedict, bland crab and hollandaise sauce.
Absolutely delicious food paired with attentive service. Restaurant is tastefully decorated and quiet with a nice view of the harbor. One of my new favorite dining spots.
We ordered a beet salad and an octopus salad and were disappointed in the quality. Our server was overwhelmed with too many tables. The restaurant is beautiful but it was not a pleasant dinner.
The only downside to the meal was the seafood platter for $79.00
disappointing for the cost
Reserved a table outside and despite the fact that there were only 3 seated tables inside and 4 tables outside, we were told that no outside tables were available.
Ordered food... 1.5 hrs later meal FINALLY arrives because our ticket got “shuffled behind a larger party”
A waste of $300.
We had the most amazing time. The setting is fantastic being right on the harbor with the gorgeous boats.
It was shaded and we enjoyed the patio. The staff is wonderful. After we had a long lunch we moved over to the bar seating and Bobby just spoiled us with his humor and service. This is a special place where you have scenery, good food, great service and ability for conversation in a quieter setting.
Amazing and very special Sunday Brunch! Loved every details, the food was delicious, our server was very attentive and the view was beautiful!
Great service and food was excellent. Loved the cold bar buffet.
Beautiful spot for lunch! Great biz meeting spot!!
Excellent service and friendly staff.
We had a reservation, but had to wait. We were at the table almost 15 minutes before we got water. Not worth $53 pp, I would not go again
Beautiful restaurant. The ambiance fits the quality of the food. The ribery was large, flavorful and delicious. The scallops were melt in your mouth tender. Make sure you get the bread. They are mini loaves that are very tasty. Will definitely go back.
Great service-food was awesome! Took our three almost four year old and it was very comfortable.
Wonderful ambiance and service from our waiter James and Justin too. James respected that we were wanting time to get caught up with our friends and gave us space to talk before ordering. So refreshing not to be pressured to order right away. Our night was wonderful from start to finish! :-)
Everyone Enjoyed the dinner very much.
Victoria made sure we had a very special and memorable 4th of July lunch. Excellent service.
Beautiful setting. Delicious food. Marvelous service
The service was extremely slow and unfriendly. The food was okay but definitely have no intention of going back.
