This is seriously all about the view. I'd recommend going to the bar for bar bites and a drink. The cocktails were great! It was quite expensive for less than great food.

We decided to have our business meeting lunch because we wanted to try out a place with a great view and that served good salmon for our business colleague who was visiting from out of town. My partner and I ordered the burger, which was delicious. They also have a great selection of different types of beer and the service was great. Everything is very reasonably priced for a place that has a great atmosphere for pretty much all occasions.

I will definitely go back and try out other items.

My ramen was pretty salty and I love salt. The service was horrible. I was on the patio but no one showed up to serve me so I went to the bar inside to order my food. We waited for 30 minutes for our food for another order we placed. Our drinks took a while. We had 2 servers because we flagged down one and she said she wasn't ours and she was wondering why ours kept ignoring us. And they don't have happy hour. Wtf?

Amazing view but that is all that is good here. It is is disappointing that on several occasions now we have been let down. Service is terrible. It takes 30 mins to get a drink. They do not refill water or check on you. The food is marginal at best. The area needs more restaurants and I lovethe patio but won’t be back.

Great view and good food marred by poor service. I keep thinking they will get the service squared away to match the quality of the food and the dining space, but it has not happened. Decent place to grab a drink if you are not in a hurry and want to enjoy the spectacular lake view as the sun sets, but I recommend heading elsewhere for dinner.

I have been in the food industry for 38 years. We really wanted this restaurant to be one of our local go to locations. This was the 2nd chance since the 1st time was horrible too. Service had an additude and was unacceptably SLOW , food was bland the bread and seafood even tasted old. It was priced as expected. However since the quality was so poor it felt overpriced. It is a gem of a location. If only they can teach the staff service and get a chef that cares😢 very disappointing. Peyrassol near by will keep our business!!! So sorry.

Sat is next to a table full of toddlers and babies when there were plenty of other options. Ignored for the first 15 minutes. Dumplings were dried out as if they were sitting under the hot lamps or old production. Waste of a beautiful location and building. Need to up their game.

The ambiance and view are great! The food was good, although my husband found a hair in his salad, and pointed it out to the server, who said she'd "let them know." When we received the bill, we were surprised to see that we were charged for his salad the he didn't even eat half of, because of finding a hair. We felt it should have been removed from the bill. Also, the menu showed "sommelier's selection" wines, as featured wines. We selected one with a pricing of "9/28". There was no explanation that those prices were for a "taste glass" or a "regular glass." We assumed, not unreasonably, that it was glass and bottle pricing, so we ordered a bottle. The server never let on that the bottle price was $105!!!!! When we got the bill, we were absolutely shocked, to say the least. Fortunately, we could afford to pay the bill, but we would have never ordered the bottle if it was clear that it was $105. I will admit that in the wine list, the bottle is priced at $105, but we didn't even look at the wine list after seeing the sommelier's selection wines listed on the food menu, so there was no way for us to have known that prior to ordering the bottle. Either they should put all three prices on the menu, explaining what you are buying, or they should be sure that the servers explain it. It was really misleading, in my opinion.

Our dinner at Water's Edge was reunion with long time girlfriends. We were last together almost 25 years ago! Dondre was our server, and his skill, and his friendly, professional attitude was outstanding. He answered all of our questions without hesitation and made a recommendation for noshes while we chatted over wine. I ordered the fresh halibut, and it was probably the best I have ever tasted! It was cooked perfectly, with an amazing mango salsa that just made the dish! We never felt rushed, the entire service staff so very attentive and friendly! Wonderful dining experience!

Me and My best friend celebrated my 81st Birthday at Water's Table. The wait staff was very kind and made us feel right at home. The view is stunning and we were given a window table (by request) to enjoy it to it's fullest. We had Prawns for a light dinner and enjoyed our meal very much. I will return soon to treat my adult daughter. Arlene Haight

Horrible. Our reservation was not ready when we got there and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited an additional 15 minutes to be served. The food and drinks were high priced but were lacking in execution. The only positive was the view of the water.

Views on the deck at sunset will continue bringing us back over and over. The appetizers are also great. Roquefort blue cheese wedge with crackers is excellent as is the spicy edemame. Decent wine list as well. We had a blonde lady serve us the first time there and saw her the second time again on the outside deck but were lucky to avoid her serving us. She Is so unfriendly, disinterested and slow. She is never in a rush for anything and walks around ignoring customers and will drop off bills while making zero eye contact and say thank you as she is already walking away. You get better servers at Red Robin and mind you this is a pricey respectable restaurant where people are buying $100 bottles of wine. She struggled opening then pouring the bottle of wine almost dripping on us. The surrounding tables both times were upset with her and she could care less. They need to replace her with the server assistants who were very friendly and polite. If the manager would sit and watch her work and interact with customers for a night I assure you she would not be serving. It was very bad both times. I will request another server as I am not paying $150+ for dinner from someone who hates people. The older gentleman who served the patio as well was great! The service needs to rise to the quality of the restaurant or they will lose repeat business unless they are hotel guests who know no different. Place is a great addition to Renton, just needs a bit more refinement.

Our family's first visit to Water's Table to celebrate our daughters' birthday, we had breakfast. Will be back to try lunch and/or dinner very soon. The food, service, and views are/were outstanding! Also, water glasses and coffee mugs were always topped off without having to ask so, bonus stars there.

The chocolate chip pancakes (kid's menu) was the best in quite a while. Not only were the pancakes tasty and moist, it came with a side of sprinkles, whipped cream (not overly sweet), and white choc chips. As any parent can imagine, this was an incredible hit - nice touch Water's Table.

The adult entrees were excellent as well. Pouched eggs perfectly cooked and salmon benedict very well prepared. Would have been nice to have hash browns versus the "home style" potatoes, but if that is one's only complaint - not bad. Also the side of toast with the two egg breakfast was actually well toasted (not soggy) and quality bread - Macrina Bakery bread I believe.

It was worth the 10-15 minute drive so you people that live in Renton have no excuse. Do yourself a favor and try this place out if you haven't been. We will be back to try lunch and dinner! Thanks Water's Table for a great birthday celebration!

The view was amazing. Food was good but a little overpriced in my opinion. They were out of the wedge salad we ordered so they brought out a wilted salad “on the House” and still tried to charge us for it. When we arrived on time for our reservation the hostess asked us to wait 5 minutes because if she sat us, the server would get mad because she just sat a table in her section. Our server was very short and not really personable. We asked for a photo and she seemed like it was a huge deal. When we were ordering our food she stopped us mid order and said, “honestly, I think that’s enough for right now”. Apparently due to the table size but still, what server tells their guests to stop ordering food? I would recommend this place based on location and the view from the patio. If you’re looking for top notch service you won’t find it here.

I usually don't go for Asian fusion restaurant because it's usually overpriced Asian restaurant. For the upscale hotel that it's located in, price is decent, but food quality was unimpressive. The ramen was one of the worst one we had. Spring roll was ok. Pasta with black mussels wasn't tasty. Service was good.

We had reservations for 1 pm for a party of 5 and the service was slow and we had to return two meals because they were not seasoned well Braised Beef/Mac and Cheese was bland. The salmon was delicious and the flat bread is to die for. The waitress kept taking the wine/drink list every time we ordered food and so we kept having to ask for it. We ended up with two servers which was odd. Hopefully the service and food will get better with time. Beautiful view though.

Food was just OK. We both ordered fish, my bed had the salmon, I had the halibut, bother we’re over cooked. Our plates were super hot when the server gave us our food, so who knows how long it sat under a heat lamp. Kids were running around in our area, because the parents weren’t paying attention. I will not recommend to anyone, but may come back for happy hour when I’m in the area.

I decided not to drink Alcohol, and purchased a virgin Mojito. When I looked at my bill, they charged me $11.00. I told the waitress that I did not have alcohol, she told me that they charge the same whether or not you have alcohol. I spoke to a manager who said that is their policy. How can somebody charge me $11 for simple syrup, mint and tonic water? The manager was kind enough to refund me for both of the virgin drinks. I told her that this was really not good and that the waitress should let people know that is what will happen.
