This is a singular experience at a unique property with excellent food and service, and you will pay for it. It’s a little sad to see standards regarding the dress code slipping. It would be nice to see people dress in a way that befits the occasion. This is not really a knock on the Waterlot. The staff and property all maintain the highest standards. I just wish all the guests would as well. The Waterlot Oscar was excellent. Perfectly prepared. The Baked Alaska flambéed at the table was a sweet spectacle. I wish I had know about the beautiful lounge area to enjoy while waiting for your table - we chose to have a drink on the patio to watch the sunset. Overall, it was a lovely experience. Is it worth the price? I would say, yes.

Not what it used to be. Having gone there for years,this trip left us very disappointed. In the past when we visited Bermuda for our anniversary, we ate at the Waterlot and enjoyed it tremendously. This time was different ...the oysters Rockefeller were not freshly prepared...the holladaise sauce had jelled from sitting under a heat lamp. My short ribs were over cooked pieces of beef, not juicy falling apart like they should have been. My husband’s Neiman ranch porterhouse steak was tough over cooked with no seasoning. No body was asking how dinner was. Years ago when Barry was in charge, we could not wait to come back. Even though we have dined there at least 10 times in the past...Think that was our last😟

Our favorite dining establishment in Bermuda. We dine here every time we visit. The clientele seems to be primarily guests at the Fairmont Southampton, where it is the featured restaurant. Their fish chowder, the iconic Bermudian dish, is out favorite of all we've tried on the island. Service is exceptional - the staff are engaging and professional (as are all the staff at the Southampton). There is a nice wine list - on a tablet so that you can filter and scroll according to your tastes and budget and presents you a photo of the wine so you can even select by the look of the label if you're inclined. They do seafood and red meat exceptionally well (we've not tried the poultry). Desserts are varied and appealing - I'm a big fan of their sticky toffee pudding.

The service was poor for the type of restaurant and the price.
The price was very high for very slim portions. We got the trio (fish and meat) and we were disappointed by the presentation and quantity

The Waterlot Inn is my favorite dining experience not only on the Island but anywhere. I’m from NY and travel all over and this place still tops my list. From the moment you walk in till you leave, the experience is top notch.

This was for my husband's birthday, and connected to the Fairmont Southhampton, which is where we stayed. The restaurant is lovely, and obviously all who work there are very proud of it. The food was very good, my steak was a little more on the well side than I might have liked, but my husband said the scallops were outstanding. I had indicated on the reservation, and they confirmed when we confirmed from the hotel, that they knew it was my husband's birthday, but I had to tell the waiter in order for them to acknowledge it. Glad we had the experience, but be prepared for a very expensive evening.

Great service and ambiance for a nice occasion. The food, although very good steak and seafood, isn’t anything spectacular for the high price you pay. We did leave feeling less full than we’d hoped.

Our great experience began with creative cocktails in the romantic ambiance of the cocktail lounge. Definitely worth arriving early for one of these masterpieces. We were then escorted down into the old world charm of the main dining room. Caesar salad masterfully prepared table side is a must. The Sommelier suggested the perfect wine to compliment both our meals, and the service was friendly and attentive. This restaurant is a must if you want fine dining presented in Bermudian fashion.

Atmosphere, food, and service were all top-notch. Our server, Barry, could not have been better and made for a truly special evening. He even took our two-year old for a walk around the restaurant to give us a few moments alone to savour the food.

Advice: the Wagyu strip is fairly thin at 5oz and should not be ordered more than rare, since it will continue to cook off the grill. Our medium rare, ended up closer to medium-well but I blame myself for not ordering properly. Don't make the same mistake we did.

I went to the Waterlot many times before the Fairmont Southampton took over. It was my husband's and my favorite restaurant in Bermuda. It has really changed. The class and specialness is gone. It is about volume, efficiency and making money. At first glance it looks the same but soon we noticed customers in jeans and no jackets. Then we ordered a cesaer salad and, while made at the table, it is with pre-prepared ingredients. Very bland. The food was average at best. Nothing like in the past. They have a good wine list but they are very over priced. The waiter we had was very nice and tried really hard. He felt very bad when the steak I ordered medium came out rare. So, my husband was about done by the time I got my dinner. I used to always recommend this restaurant but cannot anymore. It is a sad reflection of its former self.

Surprisingly family friendly. We had our 4-month old son and were seated in a section with a bunch of other families with small children.

Service was excellent- Thomas was amazing at answering any questions, giving suggestions and telling us about the history of the building. The prices are high, but if you know that going it you shouldn’t be surprised. Would definitely recommend to others

The meal was exquisite. Everything tasted amazing. The service was a bit lacking as we had to look for our waiter to refill our wine glasses - wine was a few feet away in the canister - and to ask questions/place orders etc. Other than the lack of exemplary and attentive service, everything was amazing.

A very busy Saturday night but the staff were as professional and efficient as always.

The current Restaurant Weeks menu is excellent value even with the addition of Brussel Sprouts (that I HAD to have) and the twice baked potato.
