Dining service was delightful but nosy. Valet had an attitude when I sought a spot right next to where I was waiting. Noticeably had an attitude problem prior to dining as he seemed to be late for something although there were no cars besides mine and farted in my car before handing it to me at nightcap.

We were married here 24years ago when Lake Edge. We still come back every year and it is always wonderful! Food and wine is far superior now!

Water and wine was exceptional. The staff, beginning with the bar tender and transitioning to our waiter during dinner, were friendly and very accommodating. The Cajun Calamari and mozzarella/prosciutto wrapped in panko and bell peppers were amazing. The meals consisted of Tagliatelle Pasta with seafood in a fra diavolo sauce(Special Request) and Oso Buco with Pappadelle Pasta. Both were off the charts good and worth every penny. Topped it off with a Nutty Irishman coffee. This restaurant was worth the visit and I will definitely be returning. GO!!YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!

Entered the dining room and immediately noticed very musty odor. Our table for two was seated next to a group who were drinking and loud. We had to move to another table. Ordered a common cocktail which was mixed incorrectly twice and had to be sent back.

First time eating here but it won't be the last. We will definitely return. Yes, they do have valet parking. No, they are not being pretentious. The parking lot is relatively small and the only way to maximize the space available is to control it. If you can't afford to tip the valet person or you object in any way, then just stay away. Everything was excellent. Good wine and single-malt scotch selection. I'm very happy when a restaurant stocks Glenlivet and a good Chardonnay. We had the garlic shrimp, tri color salad, red snapper, the osso buco, and finished with the bread pudding. We would recommend all of it, especially the garlic shrimp and the osso buco. Each were the best in recent memory.

I booked Water and Wine with high hopes for my husband’s birthday. Restaurant itself was dumpy and outdated, and didn’t seem very clean. There was a dead fly on the window sill next to my seat. The windows facing the Watchung Lake had giant bugs crawling all over the outside which made me lose my appetite almost immediately. The host and servers weren’t welcoming or warm - very “all business” and gruff attitude. The food itself was the biggest disappointment - all our dishes were either inedible or subpar with zero presentation - we got the burrata (had a sour taste as if it was old), octopus (had a fishy taste - unlike any other octopus I’ve had before… which is a lot) for appetizer. We barely touched the apps. For entrees, my husband got the lamb chops medium well (they were cooked to medium rare). I got the short rib pappardelle, which was okay but tasted like a diner dish. We were so deflated from the mediocre meal that we skipped dessert and got the check and booked it home.

Those of us that dine out have gotten used to lesser service than what we experienced pre Covid. Water and Wine did not provide lesser service. They were professional and competent. The staff wore masks. The tables were far apart and the food was really good!

We had Dover sole, Jersey tomatoes with burrata, asparagus and French fries with truffles. All excellent. The wine list is top notch for Italian and Californian. If prefer steaks, chops, pasta and more, all are highly recommended.
Nice views of the lake.
Great service, friendly greeting, fun bar area, and terrific cocktails.

Birthday dinner celebration was perfect. The friendly server made great suggestions and everything come out in a timely fashion. Wish it was a little brighter in the dining room, was a little difficult for my parents to see the menu. I noticed another table moved to sit under brighter lighting at one point. Other than that we enjoyed ourselves and would go back again!

Water & Wine is a lovely restaurant. It overlooks Watchung Lake which makes for pleasant viewing. The staff is very friendly and attentive but not overly so. The food was excellent. The halibut special over mushroom risotto was so good that I could not stop eating even after I was full. Unfortunately, I could not try the interesting desserts because I was so full. I will know better for next time.
