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.

Oysters were delicious--the yellowfin tuna was absolutely perfect and the wine they paired with our entrée was amazing. If you love seafood--I highly recommend.

Birthday celebration, and servers were actually outstanding, however the price of the food for the value and taste was not worth it.. We had King Crab, Lobster Tails and top choice Steak so for a $300 meal it was worth probably $40... sorry the food killed the night! Hit this spot after you have already eaten!!

Food was very good, service was great! Chef Bonnell chatted us up at the table a couple times which was a nice touch. My lobster tail was a little tough but very flavorful, Alaskan King Crab Legs were very good and they cracked them for us for easy access to the succulent meat.

Waters serves the best seafood in FW!
Their menu includes delicious appetizers like Oysters Texasfeller.
My favorite drinkable is the Ft Worth Old Fashion...they use a great bourbon and since “size matters” in Texas, the single giant ice cube is impressive .
But perhaps our favorite experience this past weekend was the professional and yet personal service of our waiter Paul. Kudos!

Lobster tail was way overcooked, tough and rather tasteless. Line red snapper special was overcooked and tasteless. Calamari appetizer was the same. Fresh Oysters were perfect. Desert was very good. Disappointed!!!!

Celebrating a birthday with with a last minute reservation. When we arrived, they had a birthday card signed by staff and our table waiting. It was a gorgeous day, so we elected outdoor seating. The food was fresh and delicious. Didn't try the oyster special, but will definitely try on my next visit. Everything was good, but the lemon cheesecake really sealed the meal!

Waters is a restaurant where you can have a nice flavorful meal, enjoy the ambiance, and a mix of American flavored seafood dishes. The raw oysters are really good,the calamari, the texafella oysters, and the swordfish are all pretty tasty.

Waters is my favorite restaurant! Jon and his staff are always kind, considerate and do an outstanding job! We went to Waters tonight not only for a great and relaxing meal but also to support Jon and his staff after a ridiculous week for them! Thank you for keeping us and yourselves safe during this crazy time! Stephen and Sherette Kimmel

Outstanding food - started with a dozen oysters (2 of 6 different varieties) and fantastic drink specials (apple / cranberry mule and quarantine cocktail). Followed up with delicious arctic char and halibut entrees and sides of garlic, cheese fries and asparagus. Sat outside on the shaded patio - excellent ambience and service.

The hostess seemed unprepared and was short though not unfriendly. Our waiter was spread too thin for his skill level and a bit over the top in presentation.

The food was average and priced as expected.

Anniversary/birthday dinner. Placed in a high traffic space with a broken table. Food was “meh” for the price. Couldn’t hear each other talk.

Tip was written in and we were not a large party.

Second burn by Bonnell restaurants. Will not return.
