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.

For the price they are charging the wait staff is lacking . They want to be a high end restaurant but the wait staff and the food is not there. Our waiter was making drinks at bar too and told us to get the bread because “just get it it’s free” and “don’t have that fancy ground pepper” for having a chef the Cesar salad was like you would get at a chain , no garlic , no lemon . My wife got 2 little $40 lump crab cakes , no lump all shredded and not much crab and not very good , $40 dollars ! Oh and almost forgot , could not even get a vodka and tonic as they were out of tonic at 7PM on a sat night Save your money and go elsewhere if you are looking for a special night with good food.

Waters is amazing! We had no issues with the reservation even when we arrived a little early. They had us seated immediately. Service was impeccable, as it always has been. This is probably the 5th time we’ve come and were not disappointed.

For a celebration of a new job, we dined at Waters and had an amazing experience! From the oysters to the halibut and creme brulee, we highly recommend to anyone looking for a higher end seafood place to eat. We will be back soon!

Great time and great food. 2nd year in a row we have spent our Wedding Anniversary at The Waters and it’s pretty likely it will become a tradition. We had delicious oysters from all over, one of the best crab cakes I’ve ever had, perfectly cooked and no work lobsters and king crab. The service was excellent, the food was perfectly prepared and really it was a reasonable price. I can’t say enough about the quality cocktails and excellent wine service we had. I highly recommend The Waters for any occasion but especially for a special occasion.

Very good seafood, with a few minor glitches. Seafood tower was splendid. Fish and chips were so-so. Halibut was good, but not great. Crab cakes were excellent. Very pretty place and wonderful service.

As always, Waters exceeded our expectations. My husband and I decided to venture out of our quarantine hole for a date night and went to Waters at 4 PM to beat the crowd and sit on the patio. The patio was a bit windy (it was highly comedic) so we were transferred inside to a table in the bar area that was far from other people. I wore my mask when the waitress was at our table and she expressed how appreciative she was that I was being conscientious of her. On top of the fabulous HH menu items we ordered, we also got some entrees and our waitress recommended the Waters Chardonnay- now...we aren’t Chardonnay fans. But she let us sample some and boy howdy, was it divine. Big ups to Waters for continuing to be our favorite restaurant in DFW and for Chef & owner Jon Bonnell For being the social justice advocate we need. A+, 5 stars, all the accolades.

My wife and I are huge foodies and travel quite extensively, Waters is truly one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. We have been there three times , we don’t get to Fort Worth very often. It is always the highlight of our trip. Everything is on point. Truly a gem. You can’t go wrong.

The oysters are always the best in the city. The Salmon is extraordinary. An IMPROVEMENT on the famous Troisgros brothers preparation, Chef Bonnell out performs anyone selling cooked salmon today. The whole menu is worth having, but the Salmon stands alone as a truly world class dish

Awesome seafood restaurant, downtown Fort Worth -- fun walking area also; - our first time there. COVID seating so 50% or so. Nice decor, delicious entrees, super-friendly staff. Prices seem more like $$$$ than the $$$ it was advertised as.... two adults eating with 2 total glasses of wine and a shared dessert = $185 with tax. Seemed a bit steep but the Alaskan Halibut entree was about $44. Perhaps prices higher with COVID-related impacts also. Overall great we will definitely go back. Free 2.5 hr valet parking with validation at restaurant.

Scallops were supreme! Filet was standard, meat was cooked more on the rare side. Which is fine, but just a tip, if you order medium rare it’s extremely rare. Creme Brûlée was not to my satisfaction. It is in a deep cup that doesn’t allow for the flavors to be evenly distributed.

Great food and great service. Social distancing worked out great, we felt quite comfortable and safe. Our meals were delicious, we sampled Halibut, crab cakes, house and caesar salads, gumbo, lemon ice box cheese cake, and brownie with ice cream and more...no complaints at all.

Our server did a great job. She checked in on us at appropriate times to make sure we were being taken care of.

Parking is convenient and the restaurant gives you a voucher for valet parking.
