I love love love Water & Wine! Rita is an extraordinary professional and my all time favorite...she is attentive but never overbearing, she understands her customers and is amazing to be with and to have as our server. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere are the perfect space to be for lunch, dinner and Rita!

First time at this establishment and it was a great experience. Perhaps a little pricey for this area but the food was delicious and the portions sizable. There is a wonderful view of the water from almost every table, especially if you are fortunate enough to be seated next to the window. Particularly nice this time of year when the sun is still up at dinner time. Service was appropriately attentive and our waiter was extremely talkative and friendly without being intrusive.

Highly recommend this for date night or family and friends dinner.

Water and Wine is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently good, the portions very generous, the wine list outstanding, and the service impeccable. My wife and I just celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary here. In the past we celebrated our daughter's high school and college graduations here. The staff always works hard to make every event, even a simple meal, a great experience. Highly recommended!!

Pros: Food was very good. Service was the highlight. Attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.

Cons: Smoking section is right in the front of restaurant; so while you are waiting for Valet to bring your vehicle around you are engulfed in second hand smoke. Biggest knock was the dress code. When I made my reservation I was informed dress was business casual. When I called to confirm I was told again - dress was business casual. When we arrived there were people in jeans, t-shirts and flip flops. Given the prices I would have expected a less casual atmosphere. Either enforce the dress or do away with it.

We lucked out getting a window seat overlooking water but saw that most spots can see. Loved our service and manager checked on us as well. Great choice for my sister’s 50th!

I hadn't been to Water & Wine in approximately 5 years. I remembered it was a good restaurant and I took 16 members of my family for dinner. I returned with my girlfriend and found to be delightful. My girlfriend couldn't stop raving about the food and wants to return. She had short ribs and commented it was the best she had ever eaten.

Wonderful as usual. Best service in central Jersey. Food is extraordinary. Puts the large wedding / party venues nearby and mall-based to shame. Nothing like it in our area. And, it has a view to boot.
