Expanding the menu with images embedded on the menu could have enticed me to order more good food to eat.

We had a wonderful experience, food was great, service was great, the view is amazing. It was a little bit chilly, not uncomfortable at all, the heaters did a great job, but take a coat just in case there is a breeze. Highly recommend!

Food was fabulous as I expected as this is now my 2nd week in a riw!
Was unable to see if the same chef was working but I'm guessing he was. Food was great, atmosphere was lively and entertaining.
We ordered the butchers cut, french toast and fried chicken as well as the mushroom omelette. Cant wait to tey the dinner menu!

1st meal of the new year was the butcher cut bfast with a tequila sunrise to wash it down. Great staff and view. Food was perfect and made exactly how I wanted it. Waiters were readily available and the chef made a personal appearance to see how the food was. Love that when the chef takes pride in their patrons and foo. Willi definitely come back and try the dinner!

My boyfriend and I went to Water's Table for their NYE special. We were nervous that we would be cold on the patio, but the patio was so warm that we didn't even need our jackets. Food was very good, and service was very friendly :)

I enjoyed restaurant and the service was GREAT. Shout out to Deon my server. My only three complaints was there was no clam chowder, no pears for my for my Moscow Mule so I could not order it and 1 of my crab cakes was real salty. The tomato soup was horrible.

Hello Sweethoney59, It makes me so happy that Deon took such great care of you during your time with us at Water's Table. I do apoligize for the inconvience of not having the items you wanted from our menu! In regards to the crab cakes and the tomato soup, I will pass that feedback to Chef. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review! We take feedback very seriously here! Chloe Tinney- F&B Assistant Manager

Outdoor dining wasn't as cold as expected. They have heaters which make it quite pleasant. I was fine-on Sunday Brunch until they decided to rollup the shutters. The wind was too-much forename so I quickly asked for my check to close out my experience.

Hostess needs to be trained! You do not leave guests with a reservation standing in front of you while you take multiple calls for 10 to 12 minutes... That definitely set a bad tone for the start of our dining experience. This was compounded by the wait staff taking at least 5 to 7 minutes just to greet and touch our table with water. It’s a pandemic so being only to utilize the outdoor space we were very appreciate of for the heaters and ambience of the Lake Washington view... The food was quite good although a bit pricey. Overall I would recommend the opportunity to visit this restaurant simply based on its ability to provide a dining experience during the pandemic.

We loved the meal but we had no idea that it would cost us each $14 to park! I met my cousins for our annual Christmas lunch at Water's Table because they offer outside heated dining and it was a beautiful day.
One cousin had just recovered from a stroke so we drove up to the front door (all three cars) and used the valet.
We were shocked when we left that we owed $14 a car for parking. That was half of what we paid for our lunches.
Very disappointing and will discourage us from going there again.
I would recommend this place to a friend with the comment about parking.

It is very hard to review a restaurant with the current shutdown environment imposed by Governor Inslee, but here goes.

Waters is doing the best it can to have "outdoor" dining on a deck overlooking Lake Washington. I am sure this would be an amazing place on a beautiful summer day/evening. On a cloudy November day not so much. That said if you are looking for a place that serves under current restrictions consider Water's Table. The electric heaters they have in the ceiling do take the edge off in the space and if you sit close to the interior window you will probably even be comfortable if the wind is not blowing.

On to the food...
We were there for the Sunday Brunch. Very nice selection of options. The quinoa granola & coconut yogurt "parfait" was excellent. Lots of berries (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry) made it an especially nice appetizer
I had the fried chicken and french toast. Tried it because it seemed like a very interesting combination. Thought is was very well done. My wife had the wild mushroom omelet. Was very prepared and presented also.

So if you are feeling trapped and really need to get out someplace (like us) give Water's Table a try.

I was very happy to find such a lovely place to enjoy a meal, completely in compliance with current Covid restrictions. There was a lovely view, completely covered from the rain, warmed with heaters, yet still outdoors. The food was great and the staff was attentive! Great experience overall!

Thought we'd try this place out for Restaurant Week. Unfortunately, the special menu/pricing wasn't available on Sunday.
I was a bit underwhelmed by the Bacon/Beef burger. It wasn't your typical flame broiled burger that I look forward to from a restaurant quality kitchen. It looked like a gray patty that was warmed up on a griddle. Nothing special by any means.
Waiter was pleasant and provided everything we needed.

It was exactly what we needed - nice restaurant outdoors for COVID purposes, with heat to where we were comfortable in regular indoor clothes. Wish they hadn't already sold out of the tomahawk! Service was very friendly but could tell it was hard to staff efficiently with how sporadic things probably are now.
