Everything overall was great, we were seated early and the food was delicious. The only setback was that the bar making the drinks took so long to make that all our food came before the first round of drinks.

We went for the Thanksgiving meal and were blown away by everything. The Christmas meal? Not so much. They had a runny egg theme, so the appetizer and salad included runny egg. The lamb was described as falling off the bone. It was very tough and had to be cut from the bone with a sharp knife. The steak was 3/4 fat. All in all, sat at 5pm, left at 7pm. Was still hungry and out a lot of money.

This was second time I visited restaurant.
The pork chops were amazing first time and dessert menu.
Second time, I ordered NY Prime Steak. It was not as good as expected. The dessert menu changed and description were misleading. They offered profiteroles (10) and it was one with ice cream inside but definitely not a profiterole.

We will definitely try again and hopefully is a better experience. The staff is wonderful and attentive and the view and location is worth trying.

Thanksgiving 3 course meal. The restaurant is nice but food not so much. I would compare it to Cafeteria food, nothing special. For the price you pay definitely not worth it. Total for 2 people with 20% tip and tax came out to $215.00.

Thanksgiving Dinner was our first visit to Waters Table. Great atmosphere at a waterfront table. Food was plentiful and pleasing overall. Moved from the table to the bar where we met Chrystal (if spelling isn’t incorrect, please forgive). Great end to an exceptional day out. Thanks to all the staff for putting on a great Holiday face!

Went for lunch but were told that we can only order from the brunch menu. It was a Saturday so perhaps having eggs and bacon for lunch at 1pm isn't as bad.

We have eaten at water’s table before but just for breakfast and so we decided to go for breakfast again. The ambience is amazing at the Hyatt in Renton and the service was just amazing starting with the hostess that sat us but I can’t remember her name. The server Nicole was really good and was very friendly and spoke about the menu and the cocktails we ordered. Overall it was a very nice experience enjoyed our conversation with Nicole the bus staff was amazing and we definitely will go back again for breakfast and hopefully for dinner sometime.

The view was incredible. The food was average. The home fries seemed like they may not have been made from scratch, and the mushroom omelet was a little dry. My friend got the croque madame and while she loved it, I thought making it with Texas toast was low brow.

The waiter forgot to bring my drink which I ordered at the same time as the other two drinks at our table. Otherwise the service was ok.

Parking was free with no validation because it was the weekend.

When Water's Table initially opened, everything on the menu had an Asian Fusion spin. We didn't care for it so we didn't go again until a few months ago. The food was excellent (fabulous brunch and wonderful "Lakeside Burger"). We went again yesterday and the hamburger is now served with an Asian Fusion spin to it. We requested to remove the Asian flair (pickled carrot, Asian sauce/spice) and replace with lettuce, tomato, and onion. We were advised that it could NOT be done - apparently, they do not have lettuce, tomato or onion. So they served it to us with the bun, meat, ketchup, and mayo. Love the waterfront view, but when we eat out, it's for the food. We are done with Water's Table.

Everything was very nice. The meals, while a little pricey but probably in line with a good steakhouse, were excellent with sizable portions. We thought that the steak may have been better served maybe with something like garlic mashed potatoes instead of fries, but the fries were outstanding as was the steak and pork chop which was our other dish. The muscles appetizer was terrific. A great meal with timely friendly service!

I was disappointed that no one mention or acknowledge my comment when I made the reservation . Celebrating my husband birthday. I guess we travel from far to celebrate his birthday weekend and didn’t feel that special. I guess In California the restaurants do go their way to make sure someone is acknowledged on their special occasion. Anyways- food was over price and not that high end. Steaks were a bit over cook- meaning tough. Total review would be FAIR. I would probably recommend but for them to get their own opinion. I would just say - food nothing to brag about.

We are regulars here.
Our server, Alex was prompt and attentive.
His supportive staff, Tim, is always pleasant and remembers us whenever we visit.
Our only requests is that it would be nice if the restaurant stayed open later than 10pm.

The service was such that we thought they forgot us. In fact they did. Wait forever to get our drinks even water. And then when my food came it looked somebody dumped a can of garbanzo beans into a plate with a can of green beans and charge 38 bucks for it. No flavor or spice whatsoever. Don't think I'll ever eat there again. My wife's food was equally uninspiring.

Overlooking extremely slow service because two bartenders called out and ramping up operations during COVID aside, the food was just sub-par. The best plate of the evening was the beat salad. The Prime New York steak was cooked perfectly but the quality of meat still made it chew like shoe leather. The salmon, also cooked perfectly, was paired with a rhubarb compote that was so bitter, it completely ruined the dish. This return visit was definitely a step-down. Come for the cocktails and apps, but get your mains somewhere else.
