It is a 50 mile trip into the city for us; so we look forward to a pleasant evening with good food and service. Danny , at the bar is an ex Air Force Brat, and we really enjoyed our conversations with her. The management was on the ball and our food server was just outstanding.

Hands down the best oysters in DFW and I always love their lunch specials. Great place for casual lunch or business meetings. Servers are extremely knowledgeable and attentive.

Waiter was not proficient with iPad and placing orders, his appearance was like he just finished running, but that wasn't possible cause of his weight.

The air conditioning blew on us constantly and had to make the comment twice

The food was very over-priced, everything was over priced

The quality did not match the price

The scallops were not seared on both sides!!

And the WAIT for food was rediculous, if I didn't know any better , I thought it was your first day operating, we waited 45 minutes for our entree ( of course during that time we were spending more $$ on drinks - if that is the plan)

Bonnell's off of Bryant Irvin is much, much better.

We returned to Waters for a business meeting. As usual, food was wonderful. We especially enjoyed the Faroe Salmon on this visit, which is accompanied by haricot verts (green beans) and wild rice, although the filet was also exceptional. Mary, our waitress, went above and beyond and was the highlight of our lunch.

Waters was great, but THE reason we went was because when we googled Easter Brunch, this restaurant popped up. Guess what - no brunch! THAT was disappointing! Had we known we would have definitely gone somewhere else! Food was great though, but they need to get the word out about the brunch!

Wow.... incredible. Have had seafood all over the globe and I’ve never had calamari this good! The swordfish special on risotto was also wonderful. The best I’ve had. The ambiance was perfect for our birthday celebration for our table of four. We could hear each other well, the wait staff was very attentive. Elaine was a great waitress. Perfect timing for each course. We will DEFINITELY be back. This is my wife’s new go-to for special occasions.

Enjoyed a very nice meal. Thought it was a little on the pricey side for seafood, but the meal was excellent and we were given good service by Jacob our server and Bryan the wine steward. Very nice wine list. We would return and we do recommend this very nice restaurant.

We came to Waters for the first time with no expectations. It was a pre-theater dinner so we were not expecting to hang around for too long. In general food was ok but not creative. Presentation was below average, execution was just ok and pricing a bit overvalued. Paul, our server was very professional and courteous. Very knowledgeable on the art of making people feel appreciated. Just because of Paul we will go back before another play at the Bass.
