Pros: Beautiful view, lovely restaurant. They validate parking in the garage.
Cons: The menu is limited, food prices are a bit steep but I've seen worse. Limited and somewhat expensive choices of wine by the glass. It took a long time for our appetizer (bagette) to arrive. Maybe our waiter was having to cover too many tables, not certain for the reason.

Great view. Limited dinner menu with rather unimaginative preparations. Quite expensive. We had a great waiter and a nice time. We'd maybe go there for a drink but probably skip having a meal there.

Go for the view. Amazing view of lake Washington. Food was very meh. We got the fish and chips as well as the half chicken. Both were bland and overpriced. The local cider and beer selection were very good.

TLDR: go for the view and order drinks. Skip the food.

5:30 reservation. Empty tables closer to water view. Told those were already reserved and we couldn’t be moved there. When making reservation on open table it asked if this was a special occasion. I said it was my birthday but there was no acknowledgment of it during or after our meal.

It was a wonderful experience! We were celebrating the accomplishment of our team, and it was a warm, sunny day, so we sat on the patio. Nice lake view before our eyes, quiet for good conversation, very good carrot soup and entrees, and wonderful service. We will return!

Water's table is one of our favorite locations on Lake Washington. If you come by boat they have plenty of dock space and the view of Seattle is stunning particularly around sunset.

On this particular visit (4/17/21) the service fell short of our expectations. This was the fist time the thermometer hit 80 in Seattle this year and it was known for days that this would happen. Management should have been prepared for a very busy day and staffed appropriately. However we only saw a couple of wait staff juggling all the tables in the terrace and trying to keep up. It took almost half an hour after we arrived for the waitress to offer us drinks, and another 25 minutes for them to arrive. the kitchen must have been equally short staffed because the food was slow to arrive. However once it arrived it was quite good and consistent with our price vious visits.

By the end of our meal the hostess had stepped in to help out and things seemed to be flowing a little better.

This review is not a ding on the staff - they are always friendly and helpful and were doing what they could. But management clearly goofed with planning for a particularly hot day that came earlier than normal in the seasonon which means that every waterfront destination is packed.

Cocktails and service were good, food only fair. Food menu is limited. We had the burger which was ok, fish and chips were were good, and the pasta dish which was terrible (we were surprised at how bad it was, just some really bad noodles with a cut up chicken breast on top).

Food was expensive. The burger isn't juicy enough and wasn't comparable to even Shake Shack burgers, but it was more than twice the price. The environment was amazing though

Best crab cakes I have ever eaten, yet that said, they were 1/2 dollar size.

3 adults ate dinner, my husband only had an appetizer, I had a salad, and our son had fish and chips.

The bill was $160.00.

Not worth it to me. I will not be back.

First really lovely evening of the season and they were full ! Glad we had a reservation! We sat on the outside deck and had a lovely dinner! We will be back soon! Service was a little slow at times but i think it was because of the increased business. Our sever was still excellent and we had a great time.

Our first outside the house dinner date was made special by a great meal, a window seat, perfect weather and great service. Seattle Restaurant Week menu didn't disappoint. We each ordered each dish; the carrot soup was divine as was the beet salad. He ordered the salmon and I got the steak and we shared - our own version of surf and turf. I couldn't finish my steak it was so large. Both of them melted in our mouths. He got the crumble and I had the sorbet. Both were delicious. Thanks again for a great evening.

Had Sunday Brunch. Outdoor covered patio seating with heaters. Ambiance was great; some noise from the float planes and air traffic from Renton Municipal Airport, but it added to the experience. Right on the water - beautiful setting, great food and beverages.

Took a good friend here for dinner out on the patio. The patio is well covered and with it being a windy day, they had the protective shade down to keep the dining experience pleasant. The food was very good, I had the ribeye special and my friend had the Salmon. both were cooked perfectly. The food is pretty pricy as is the wine. In all though, we had a great time and enjoyed the experience.

The location is good. We don’t have many nicer restaurants in Renton especially for business. Great view. Service was ok but lacked energy in the restaurant. Our server missed many opportunities to make our visit memorable. Hotel front end staff great, loved the community dog!
Over priced for sure especially for lunch. Decent but not worth the price. Both our drinks were incorrect - twice! I was really hoping it would be a better restaurant experience especially for my client! May give them another try but probably not anytime soon.

The food and service were good but I was very disappointed when the fish and chips, which were advertised as beer battered on the menu, were breaded fish. I've been looking for a good place to get good beer battered fish and chips in the Seattle area since a trip to England two years ago. I had it there once and was hooked. Ended up having it three times while there. The website picture and menu gave me hope that this was the place I was looking for but, no.

We had reservations at 6:15pm to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. I have been here once before and it was great, so maybe we just came on a off night. But we didn’t get our starters till around 7:40pm and actual food around 8pm. Not to mention our steak was COLD. Definitely wouldn’t expect this from such a beautiful restaurant.

We had a reservation and still had to wait 1/2 hour for our table. Slow service. When my fish n chips were delivered, only 1 small tater sauce for 2 pieces of fish, ($25) came with the meal. The server asked me if there was anything else? I asked for one more.
It never came and my second piece of fish got cold and uneaten.
