Delicious! Mussels are their specialty, as is Belgian beer, two must haves! Great comfy, but not too noisy atmosphere. Service was terrific. Here on business and don't usually go to the same restaurant twice, but may need to make an exception!

We’ve come back to Waterzooi many times! We love the creative mussel pots and the Belgian fries! The lobster bisque and lobster croquettes are our favorite appetizers, but they offer many options. The seafood is always fresh! The mussel pots are huge and definitely enough to share!

This was our second time at Waterzooi and we enjoyed it again! Our server Louis was great and made sure we had everything we needed, never leaving our glasses empty and we left with full stomachs. We enjoyed the mussels- waterzooi style, farmhouse style and Montrachet style. Other favorites of the night were the west coast oysters and gnocchi.

We will certainly be back!

I wish I'd found this place years ago. I love oysters and mussels, and Waterzooi has great offerings of both. The signature dish is a pot of mussels, with a large selection of sauces, but they also have a good selection of other entrees and sandwiches. Best of all, they have a great selection of Belgian and other beer, both on draft and in bottles. There's a dessert counter that looks great, but I haven't had a chance yet to try any of it.

Service hasn’t been great past few times. Chef doesn’t like to make special requests for dietary restrictions which is an issue. Last time there was corn in he Mac and cheese which I’m allergic to and no where on menu did it ever say corn in Mac and cheese. I’ve ordered it there many times before and it never had corn in it. I asked the waitress if this was new, she was quite confused as well as she has never seen it before. She and the chef couldn’t Explain how corn got in it. Absolutely unacceptable.

Enjoyed dinner here with my husband on a Friday night. Lovely place with some very delicious food, and an outstanding beer selection. We enjoyed the lobster croquettes, Korean short ribs and of course we had to try the mussels. Service was attentive, noise level is a bit loud but over all a pleasant experience .

I love mussels, perfectly cooked in your choice of broth, with shrimp and lobster this dish is fantastic.

We love Waterzooi, but what keeps us from recommending to, or taking friends is the noise level. Just some strategically placed sound absorbing materials would be a smart move.
