I did not like being seated based on the Open Table algorithm instead of where would have liked to be seated (since we did make a reservation). With a completely empty restaurant, the next couple after we were seated were put right next to us. Then, a table of seven people (including young and loud children) were crammed into a small table next to us on the opposite side. We felt uncomfortable with the wait staff and other customers so close to us. I probably will NEVER use Open Table for a reservation ever again, and I will NEVER go to Water & Wine. We were rushed by our waitress, we had to ask for utensils, and the ambiance was more like a sports pub than what we expected.

The restaurant needs to update its cooking of vegetables. Plain, boiled spinach!! At the least it should be sautéed. Chocolate dessert was good, but need to reduce its size, too big!! Cheesecake was good and right size. My baked chicken dish was good.

Food was good, but not great. Portions are generous. We were seated at a strange unusually long table which was not conducive to a cozy Valentine's day date. When we asked to be moved, we were told nothing could be done about it.

The service was prompt, but perhaps too prompt. They were clearly trying to rush tables through so they could get more "turns" during the big Val Day holiday evening. I was offended that the server pushed back on our request to delay bringing out the desserts a little while so we could digest our entrees. Ultimately they relented and gave us time, but it was not handled well.

Top notch service. Our window table request was honored. Excellent desserts - meant to share. A bit pricey but definitely worth it.

First, there is only valet parking - it was fine, with friendly, conscientious attendants. Upon entering the hostess handled coats and seating, which took some time. Understandable, but you are waiting in an entry area that includes a bar. While waiting for our coats to be hung, we are in the middle of traffic and guests at the bar - very uncomfortable (and those poor waiters dodging people!). Once seated, we had a lovely dinner with very attentive waitstaff. The menu is very creative, and expensive (roughly $200/couple) for cocktail, wine, entree and shared apps & dessert. Entree special was halibut which was perfectly cooked but lacked seasoning. Appetizers (octopus and an asparagus/prosciutto dish) were very good. Desserts very good also. So, nice place to go, but certainly not every day and they need to check seasonings. You are well taken care of here.

We are regulars, as in once a week. The wine list is wonderful, but Italian and California - centric. Never fail to find something very good or bette to drink. Food always top notch. Steaks and chops, fish and pasta for every taste and mood. Just went back fir more of the black linguini with bottarga- truly great dish.

I can't even count the number of times we have enjoyed this restaurant! We have visited many times over the years, and it is always a perfect experience. I have celebrated my birthday here many times and tonight was such an occasion. It may be hard to believe, but I can't remember a time when I had less than perfect food and service.
There are many fine places to eat in this area, but Water & Wine remains one of my absolute favorites! Rita took care of us, as she has many times in the past. She even remembers our preferences. James always takes time to great us and all the support staff are delightful!
Can't wait to return!

How do I love Water & Wine??? Let me count the ways...the ambiance, the view, the delicious food ( I love the salmon), the wine, the dessert, and the extraordinary staff...James welcomes us; and Adam and Rita take care of our table needs!

Lovely spot, good food with ample serving size. Quiet enough for good table conversation, with enough room between tables that you don't feel crowded.
