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.

This was our 2nd time going and while our first time (on a Thursday) was excellent this second time (on a Saturday) was the exact opposite. Even though I had made a reservation days early I was seated in the back of the restaurant next to the kitchens near several large parties (some with noisy kids) Our waitress was very non attentive, and the ONLY reason we will give this restaurant another shot was the food was still as good as the first time, BUT definitely not on a weekend.

Our waiter was decent. I've sat at a table there five times now and this was my least favorite waiter to be honest. He didn't listen to what I told him to do and did not come over to the table unless I got his attention multiple times. But I still love waterzooi and will continue to be a regular. However, I will probably just be sitting at the bar because I like the bartenders.

Food was delicious. Service was unhurried. We had oysters and octopus as starters and they were great and fresh. My cucumber cooler was refreshing on a warm summer day. The ambiance was good. I’ve been to both Waterzooi
‘S now and like the less confined feel of Port Washington.
Can’t wait to go back.

Food was delicious as always. And portions are HUGE. But service was abysmal. One waiter for the whole outdoor tent was clearly not enough, especially when one of the tables was a large party of 20. It was over 30 minutes before the waiter took our order. He knew it and apologized profusely.
