First time customer. The ambience and drinks were great!! The service was good. The food was disappointing for the price. I ordered the fettuccine with salmon. The noodles were undercooked, too chewy and over all too salty. My friend ordered the chicken and it was also over salted as well. I would only go back for the drinks and scenery.

Met my friend for lunch and requested outdoor seating. There is a table I prefer with a view of the lake in the far back corner. It was available and we were the only two sitting out there for the first half of our lunch. Our waiter Dion was efficient and we never had to want for anything. The food was delicious, I have some dietary restrictions and was thankful I could place a special order. The whole experience was very positive and we will return!

Very limited food choices that are nothing special and way over-priced. The staff demonstrated little interest in our dining experience. The hostess, waiters, and waitresses seemed more concerned with customers inconveniencing them. We tried it a couple times during our stay and same experience each time. An overall disappointment as a hotel guest. Would not recommend.

My only complaint is the outdoor setting is a bit of an echo chamber. It could use some dressing up. But the service was great, the setting is perfect, the food very good. The region, given it's expansive waterfronts, has few restaurants at the water's edge. Like Ivar's in the University District, Water's Table offers boaters a destination for dining and hanging out at the very vibrant bar below Water's Table. We will definitely be back.

I checked in for my reservation and the host told me my table was getting prepared. I waited 30 minutes and went back up to the host to see how much longer and he forgot about me and my reservation, gave my table away and had to clean another table for me so i had to wait even longer. Host was nice but very upsetting he forgot to seat me.

The chicken in the chicken sandwich was overdone and tough. I really should have sent it back. The fries used to be the best I have ever had. Now they are coated with a seasoning mixture. Service was very slow. Deserts were exceptional and were gluten free which works for my husband. Unfortunately I probably won’t go back.

I had reservations for my wife’s birthday. We got there on time, but we had to stand up for at least 10min till the girl came to talk to us and get us seated. She saw us, but didn’t come to say even “give me a few minutes, I’ll be right back” but alright, we thought that she was probably busy.
Until we realized she wouldn’t come to our table check on us. Every time I tried to make eye contact, she would walk forward to me! How rude! It was THE WORST service I ever had! After the appetizer, she took out our silverware, but left the little plates. Then we the entrees came, we couldn’t eat them! I tried calling her like 3 times till I gave up, and just got the silverware from another table.
Restaurant wasn’t full of capacity at all! But my waitress was worried with only one other specific table. Don’t know exactly why.
Food is good, but overpriced.
I was expecting WAY MORE of that experience.
View is awesome, but my service ruined the night! I’ll never go back or recommend to a friend.
