Service was excellent, super attentive and comforting. The food and drinks weren’t the best but the service definitely made up for it.

Everything about the place was very nice, but the food was incredibly salty. Very friendly and attentive staff, and great atmosphere.

What a wonderful experience! The ambiance, the DJ, the service- all were exceptional. We ordered Brussel sprouts, sushi and nachos, all of which were the best we’ve ever eaten.

Great experience at Watr. The service was great, the ambience was great and the views from the rooftop were great. The food was perfect, not too large of servings but just enough. Menu could use a little more variety but other than that, I have no complaints. Also, the drinks were very good, along with the live music it was a great vibe. Will definitely visit again.

I have dined at Watr many many times. Always enjoyed it. Last night was awful. The grouper ceviche tasted like bait. Seriously! We were not charged and she ordered something else and it took 30 minutes to get.

In the meantime I was served the baked lobster roll. It was ok, not great. It didn’t seem so fresh.

One last small picky thing. We ordered blue chips and guacamole. The chips were not blue, but yellow. No big deal but that has not happened.

To cap it off the staff seemed to be genuinely disinterested in working.

COVID has changed so much for all of us.
It’s just sad to see a great place become average .

Overpriced ok-level food. Nice ambience and environment but food is just ok for the price you pay. Also 18% is added automatically even if it's a party of 2. South beach prices.

The ambiance is gorgeous. 1 hotel did not overlook a single detail. We ate here two nights in a row because it was so beautiful and the food was great. Our server Daniela was super sweet and professional. We’ll definitely be back every time we vacation in Miami!

Everything was great. The only recommendation I would give is with the edge/area on the outside of the rooftop, to clean that up, there was a lot of trash there and anyone sitting by the edge will notice it. Maybe put some plants there? It would give an even more tropical/luxury ambience.

Food was excellent, though the menu was limited to sushi rolls, sashimi and mainly sides, no entrees to speak of, we would of liked a seafood or steak option, or ideally a surf and turf to take that idea further, but what they have is excellent, especially the scallops roll, wow.
The server got our special request wrong on sashimi, but recovered with a free desert.

Very pretty & Trendy place. Crowded. Some servers wearing just face shield, no masks. People sitting at bar. Menu limited. Brussels sprouts were delicious. Deborah was very nice. Didn’t feel like Covid safe environment. Won’t be back.

Went for my friends birthday. The sushi tasted great once it was compiled in my mouth, but every one of our sushi rolls was falling apart, not tightly rolled, rice not very sticky. A bit disappointing for the price.

We had a previous experience before and everything was great specially our waiter made everything extra special. This time, not so great. Our waiter had zero interest in us or in providing good customer service, just meeeh service. Half of the food was brought 30 mins after the first half so half of our table did not eat until then. Food was fine, cocktails were really good. We had to stand up and look for our waiter to have our check brought to us.
I highly recommend the restaurant to install a few fans, the heat was insane. Not a pleasant experience.

Husband's birthday 🥳.. I loved everything here. My waitress was adorable and very on top Deborah ❤️.. Food was delicious California rolls very fresh and perfectly cut! Hamburger extra tasty the French fries one of the best ever! Unfortunately they didn't have mustard 😢.. I was so sad about that.. Hamburger without mustard is not the same!
We order a mix salad with salmon.. I thought fish was raw not grill was OK but I ordered raw..

The best was the atmosphere Omg amazing!
Definitely one place to get back!
