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.

    We had a really nice evening. It was a rainy Friday night and Waters was the perfect place to stay dry and warm. Jacob took great care of us. We ordered the “dirty dozen” oysters and they were fresh and delicious as usual. Then my husband ordered two appetizers for dinner: the fried oysters and the ahi tuna, both were delicious but very different. I ordered the swordfish special with mashed potatoes and a mushroom sauce. The swordfish was tender and delicious. My only complaint was that the pepper crust was too salty, especially on the scallop served with the dish. I had a nice dry white blend wine from the Rhône and my husband had an old fashioned, the bar is always on point at Waters. No dessert for us because we were too full from our delicious dinner. Waters is always a good go to for a casual night out, a fancy celebration or a drink at the bar in downtown Fort Worth. We will be back!

    Jacob was the most attentive and sincere waiter ever. The food was perfect. We started with the dirty dozen oysters and then had halibut with a scallop and crab cakes. For dessert, we had the crème brûlée and was treated to some truffles. The manager Jake stopped by to check up on us and chata for a little while. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as well as the server Jacob!

    My husband and I loved our experience at Waters Restaurant. We had the Texasfellar oysters, house salads, gumbo, and the filet mignon with 2 lobster tails. We ended the meal with two espresso. The food was absolutely incredible, especially the gumbo. I texted our family about the restaurant’s amazing food before we even left. We are dying to come back for another date night and a chance to explore the rest of the menu.

    Very, very good restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We had the goat cheese appetizer, Artic Char and crab cakes, all very good. My only critique is the old fashion, which is mediocre at best. A $19 old fashion should be outstanding, this one was not.

    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.

    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.
