Seafood
At Waters Restaurant – Sundance Square, we source the freshest wild, seasonal, and sustainable seafood available. Our style brings together flavors of the southwest, with hints of Louisiana, but our featured ingredients themselves typically speak the loudest. Our Signature Gumbo hastens back to some Creole roots when Jon Bonnell cooked in the French Quarter of New Orleans, while our beef gets the royal treatment Chef Felli has made famous for much of his career. Diver scallops from Maine get a slight TexMex makeover after being perfectly golden-crust-seared, while jumbo lump crabcakes celebrate beautifully fresh crab as their essence, never loaded with fillers just to save a buck. We will never utilize third-world fish farms, cheap seafood substitutes, artificial flavorings, or exploit threatened species at Waters. We strive for only the best experience for our guests, while at the same time being good stewards of our environment and our future.

    Couldn't get a table inside, but was happy to sit outside. The temperature inside the restaurant is ridiculously cold. Forgot about how cold all of us were last year in August... until we walked in! I don't get it. It's so uncomfortable when you are dressed for summer and have to dine in winter temperatures.

    We had excellent service. The food was good but did not live up to the price tag. The bread was still cold (almost slightly frozen) in the middle. The fried calamari was very good. The wine list was exceptional - great selection. Overall, you’re paying for the Bonnell name for food that is good but over-priced because of the name. Glad we tried it, but won’t be back.

    Beautiful setting, excellent service from all staff. My wife’s meal was excellent but my fish was a little bland but I don’t usually order white fish. I should have ordered her dish of salmon, more flavorful fish. We also were given a dessert of chocolates, delicious.

    Great food and service. We made reservations knowing we would be at a table on the patio. We have sat on the patio before and enjoyed it; however, this time the flock of birds roosting in the trees strafed us multiple times with bird s#!#! It made for a less than pleasant evening. Our waitress was very apologetic and helpful with damp towels for clean up. Unfortunately, we will pass if the only tables available are on the patio! They do have some tables that are under a patio cover and protected from above! I will ask for them next time.

    We sat in the bar area which we loved. It was slow for a Friday night. We had the dirty dozen and they were SO good! Main meal was crab cakes and halibut. All was cooked well and amazing! Service was great and we couldn’t have asked for a better evening.

    Waters is a pleasant restaurant with an attentive staff. Four of us had dinner there this week and most of the food was good, but two of us had the branzino and it was overcooked. It is served as filets with a nice presentation but perhaps this makes cooking appropriately difficult.

    Jon Bonnell has done great things with Waters, the menu provides a variety of options, however we went for the seafood which always taste fresh. We were a little disappointed that they were not participating in Restaurant Week that night, as we thought they were and we like to support the event and charities.

    This is our 2nd time at Waters in a month. We were inside and the service was extremely better. We enjoyed the ambience of the patio but the service seemed really slow and the waiter was okay . Not rude or short but indifferent. The salmon came out almost raw. We had to send back. He never asked how my husband wanted it. Seemed to take a long time to get our check as well. Very disappointed as we celebrated our anniversary. He never asked was this a special occasion. Our first trip was my birthday and the waitress did ask. Much better service inside.

    We arrived for our reservation on time and were immediatley seated. Started out with a selection of raw oysters. Very fresh and tasty. Had a Filet that was cooked to perfection and tasted great with the bernaise sauce and aspargus. My wife had the salmon and was just as good. Good selection of wine & port, waiter was great and attentive and atmosphere was relaxing. Highly recommend will go again.
