Good food and great service. The bowl of soup is more like a cup and should be bigger for the $. They need wall art. Walls are too bare. But the restaurant is otherwise very nice.

Went here for the first time for the wife’s birthday and loved it. Highly recommend the hush puppies, scallops and the creme brûlée is the best we have ever had.

Then had a nice walk around Sundance Square

Nicely up-scale place on Sundance Square. It provides a vibrant dining scene that generally doesn’t disappoint. The salmon and halibut were outstanding. The lump crap and avocado salad was the only subpar dish on our visit. It had a very sparse helping of lump crabmeat and the small amount of diced avocado was lost in the large mound of vinaigrette super- saturated lettuce. The service was exemplary. It is expensive. Overall a wonderful experience.

Took my significant other to Waters to celebrate her birthday. A beautiful rose was waiting on the table of the secluded booth that was perfect for a quiet and very romantic evening.

The entire staff was so great and very attentive. The food is some of the best in the DFW Metroplex.

We go here often and this experience was not unusual but is is the norm at Waters.

Only if the next visit was free would I ever go back to Waters and even that would be a struggle. Food was average, service was abominable and the price point that tries to align to a high end steak and seafood restaurant is not even close to reality if what you should pay. Save your money and choose elsewhere.

Had a nice dinner for the wife's b'day. Fried oysters were quite good followed by crab cakes and scallops that were outstanding. Avoid the side of grilled broccolini. Mission fail as they were too thick which made them almost impossible to cut. Finished off by splitting a crème brûlée which was also a big hit.

I took my family out for my Dad's 80th birthday. I called ahead to ask for a table that could offer as much quiet as possible, the aged hearing being what it is. They were super accommodating and the service was superb! My dad is picking on his Bombay Sapphire martinis and he found those perfect. Now that is high praise!!

The food was excellent, table service was great, ambiance nice and the wait staff was very attentive and entertaining. Only knock is that the bartender padded the liquor tab by substituting high prices for basic whiskey orders. Not a HUGE problem, but it tended to put a damper on the evening. Needless to say, watch your bar tab with great precision and care.

We sat at a table for two (one person in booth with window behind and the other in a chair across). I couldn't hear my husband talking across the table, but I could hear the lady next to me very clearly. We were there for a special night out, but there was no privacy.
My office had ordered lunch a few weeks prior which was phenomenal, but I was less than impressed with our dinner.
Our server, Laurel, was fantastic!
