The food was very good, perfectly cooked. However, the mussels that I ordered had some kind of very small pearls inside, which was extremely uncomfortable. I did mention it to the waiter who took them and showed them to the chef. Unfortunately, they closed their eyes on it and did not do anything about it. I was very disappointed and I now feel that the service was very bad, especially for this price range.

We sat outside, which is a great setup! Our waitress was awesome, explained everything on the menu and was well versed in the beer! Food was delicious!! Everything we had was amazing!! Dessert was so good!!! Our bill was messed up, but in our favor and the waitress apologized a million times, manager came over apologized a million times! We assured them it’s no big deal and they offered free drinks and dessert on them even though the bill was in our favor. Great experience. Just as good if not better than the Garden City location. Highly recommend.

It was a busy night and so service was lacking. We waited for drinks. A hostess brought over the salads because she said she saw them waiting to be picked up. And, the mussels must have been sitting there a while too because they were warm, not hot.
I was disappointed. I never had these issues in the Garden City restaurant.

My dinner was just OK. I ordered salmon, and I've had better salmon in a diner, so very disapointing. My onion soup however, was very good. My three other companions at the table seemed to enjoyed their orders. The service was attentive to excellent. Overall, I'd say it was a good experience, but not great. The dinner as a whole was overpriced.

This was my first time at the Port Washington location and I was so happy to see so much outdoor seating. When things are better the inside was very expansive as well.
The mussels were great as always and the cherry stone clams were really top rate.
Our server, Carlos was very professional and took the appropriate amount of time to talk with us. We would definitely go back!

We have been dining at Water Zooi in GC for years. Our experience here was excellent. Our server, Carlos was wonderful. Attentive and friendly. The bus staff equally as good. Our mussels were perfect. If I had one complaint, it’s their high prices. Some are just over the top. The same Thai mussels that I have eaten for years is now $35. No extra shrimp. Really? A go to place will now be a yearly special occasion restaurant.

Normally this restaurant is right on... however that was not the case yesterday, Monday aug 16th at 12:45 table for 4 people. Server was just not on his game, if we got a course we were short drinks... nothing happened at the same time, the wait was just too much for us to enjoy our meal... Restaurant was empty so we could not figure out why the service was just horrendous.... food was good... but if your paying $300.00 for lunch the entire meal/service delivery must go hand and hand. It will be a long time before we return...

The food quality is poor compared to the pricing. The prices would indicate something special in the food and that is not the case in the lobster roll sandwich and mussels that we had at lunch.
