I requested outdoor seating for a party of two with a water view. We were very pleased with the table and the view. The server was attentive and the food was delicious!

I like Water's Table for the view and their covered outside seating. The menu choices are kind of uninspired. My salad with salmon was perfect. I enjoyed it. My husband found his fish and chip pieces to be thin with more batter than fish. I had to concur. His chips were good though. The service was solid with one waitstaff stepping in for ours as he kind of disappeared. its nice that they validate the parking so its free.

We went for Mother's Day brunch and it was our first visit to the restaurant. We loved the views of the lake and the service was fine, but the food was subpar. My wife's eggs were very overcooked and, shockingly, the French toast was terrible. I'm not sure how you make bad French toast, but these guys have found a way. It was super dry, probably stale bread? And there was little, if any, kind of egg mixture on it. It was essentially dry, stale toast, served with butter and syrup. The chicken that came with it was decent and the presentation was nice, but I only had maybe 2 bites of the bread and regarded the rest with a hungry gaze, wishing for better, but accepting that I would rather just have a 2nd lunch when I got home than eat it. We might try again for dinner sometime. Mother's day brunch isn't the day I would pick to expect the best from any restaurant, but the lack of execution was surprising.

Thank you for the review and feedback, James. Please accept my sincere apologies regarding your experience. This is extremely disappointing to hear. Personally, I love the Fried Chicken and French Toast, and it's arguably our most popular dish. I would like to welcome you back to show you we can do better. I will send you a private message with my email so we can work to arrange. Thank you. Sincerely, Steve Nicoles, Restaurant Manager

We have been here twice and the service is great. The outdoor dining is a little chilly but fine if you have a light coat. Great views, it was an easy spot for dinner as my mom was staying in the hotel.

What a treat to dine at the Water's Table. My daughters and I celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday the day before and were treated to amazing service and a delicious menu. My wild mushroom and spinach omelet was prepared perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed their bottomless mimosas, so delicious. Our greeter, and service staff were so very gracious and friendly. Responded to every request instantaneously and always with a smile. We look forward to returning to this lovely outdoor patio soon!

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.

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.
