Dining rooms, despite being full, did not feel crowded. The view of the lake may have added to the feeling of being in a vast space. Waiter, Mariano, made a stellar wine recommendation that paired well with the Scottish Salmon. Yum! Overall excellent experience!!

The service, food and drinks are all top shelf and the view is very pretty. I will go back and I can recommend with confidence.

Great menu, from appetizers, to entrees to desserts. The service was more than we could ask for and our waiter was always there to answer any questions. Pricing very reasonable with drinks included. It was a wonderful day to celebrate at Water and Wine. Thank you!

They need to replace the carpet and update the place. I think it would be more appealing in terms of ambience during the day. My husband and I enjoyed the halibut with a delicious risotto. The others in our part had the branzino and filet. All the dishes were excellent.

But it is a perfectly nice place for a romantic evening meal by Watchung Lake, as long as you don't mind their exorbitant prices for middling food. Cocktails are unimaginative but use very good ingredients, so stick to the basic cocktails and you'll be happy. You have to be willing to hand over your car keys because they only allow valet parking, which is an annoyance.

The Butaya stuffed meatball was excellent. The salad was great. My Filet Mignon was really good. The Zuppa di Pesce was outstanding as was the rack of lamb. I saw someone else ordered the shrimp cocktail and each shrimp looked like small lobsters!! They were huge. Best crème brûlée ever. Highly, highly recommended!!
