Great place to eat
Food was excellent
The mussel's are always the highlight at this place and for the most part they deliver although the last few time we've eaten them they were on the sandy side. $12 bucks for a small beer is a rip off. For that money you should get a big glass and not a tease. The St. lewis ribs are outstanding and the frites are delicious. Service is great.
Mussel pot was awesome! Pasta with squid ink was great. Lemon sole was so so. Our waitress made it seem like taking our order was a burden.
My first visit. Food was average but only if you like seafood. Decent meal.
We sat outside so I really couldn’t tell you about the noise level but the service was outstanding and the food was good. Prices were a little high
Food was delicious & our server, Lisa was great. Loving the outdoor space/setup.
Great food and very attentive staff. One of our favorites!
Fun family gathering!
Overall It’s was ok. Sea bass was a tad bland and needed more flavor. Oysters were ok.
Love the food and place. Been coming here for years but service was slow this time. I’ll be back and hopefully quicker service
Tables are separated with plastic dividers. Food good as ever. Country pâté and house salad to start. Bistro burger/frites, huge portion of Fra Diablo and cheese fondue as entrees. Gelato and rich chocolate cake for dessert. Pleasant attentive waitstaff.
They serve mussels but you can’t get any kind of pasta with it . They give French fries instead 🙉
Super loud, parked at a table by the front door for an anniversary dinner. The mussel pot was delicious, but so filling we didn’t order anything else. No fault of the restaurant it was SO GOOD, but it was so loud and lacked intimacy for the reason we specified the occasion.
All around great place!
The mussels as usual was delicious full of meat the lobster was tender along with the shrimp the service is impeccable they know how to run a business.
The food was very good. The service was very slow and the air conditioning was broken. It was very hot in there. Someone should have told us that before we sat down.
a restaurant that we frequent often but total let down for second time. Server was marginally disinterested and sloppy pouring leftovers mussels at table spilling it over table. i rarely don’t leave 20% tip but this was one of those rare occasions. Food was lackluster at best. for a $300 meal i expect more.
Delicious food, great service and ambience, Waterzooi is one of the top restaurants around. If you like mussels, this is the place for you. The lobster mac and cheese is also to die for.
Great place. Food was outstanding. Decor needs a facelift. Service was excellent. Noise level was in the level of shooting at each other at the table. I would definitely go back. The food is THAT good.
I felt the ambiance needed some work. I stayed under the awning and since this is their usual outdoor space I expected more than what was presented. The space was quiet but the setting felt bland. I would recommend a candle or something else on the table to bring some ambiance. The full outdoor space was way nicer with much more attention to detail. I wish the existing space also had such attention to detail. Service was wonderful and food was great. We will be back.
Loved the outdoor seating - well spaced and comfortable -
Totally enjoyed another delicious meal at Waterzooi. I will definitely be back.
The restaurant is nice and the service was good. The French fries were the best part of the meal. The avocado toast with fried egg was too mushy and lacked texture. The steak was dry, as well. I wish I could give them 5 stars just based on the service and restaurant interior.
I came here for brunch with friends on a Sunday and we sat outside on the cute patio. The weather was perfect, service was great and the food was to-die-for! We got the mussel pot (oreganata), lobster roll, French toast, and artichoke dip… everything was delish!
Waterzooi has it all.........so enjoyed the fresh oysters and moules!! Highly recommend!!
Food, service, ambiance…everything is top notch at Waterzooi. Loved how it was loud and busy, yet easily quiet enough to feel like it’s empty. Amazing establishment.
Our waitress was very kind and attentive, lucky 13 oysters were great, charcuterie board was also very good, watercress salad was good but could’ve used some dressing. Wellington burger was great, the Kim chicken was good but a little dry, our martinis were also good and the creme brûlée was FANTASTIC
one of favs fell short. i hope it was a one off.
Burger and lobster mac and cheese are always good here .
Loud environment. Bread was stale and on cool side. Service otherwise was great.
Give our waitress Sara a raise! Second great experience with her!!
Our first post-Covid visit and it could not have been better. There was always a small outside patio, however there is now expanded, covered outdoor dining- great setup. Food great as always. Will return soon!
We had the best lunch outside with Max. He was helpful and accommodating and had the best recommendations.
The service is amazing and the mussels and frites were delicious. This is definitely on my go to list of restaurants.
The food was amazing and Skye, our waitress, was awesome, as well as, the rest of the servers and wait staff. Very polite and professional. Had a delightful lunch.
Worth every bite, as expected. Mussels superb, lobster roll outstanding, fries too! Cannot miss on any item. Kristen our server and drinks too were terrific.
Great mussels.. outstanding beer selection great service pricey but worth it.
I arrived with my date 10 minutes early for our reservation and were immediately seated! The food was amazing! Two pots of mussels, the pate was delicious and the lobster balls (deep fried) really good. Price was a little high but the food service and surroundings made it worth it
