Mother's Day Menus & Specials
Celebrate Mother's Day at Water Grill! Our Chef is preparing a special menu to help celebrate that special Woman in your life!
Great food, service and drinks!
We love the Water Grill and we go here all the time. This time though, we were disappointed. I tried the lobster role and it was mediocre at best, certainly nothing to recommend. Not sure why it's on the menu.
The service (Chris) is always very very good and everyone is more than willing to accommodate your wishes. We normally give a 4 - 5 star review.... just not this time.
Sergio gave us absolutely amazing service. He was very detailed and genuine with his description of each drink, dish and accompanying sauce. He was also attentive to our needs and overall made our experience more enjoyable. We will definitely come back and recommend him to our friends.
Aside from service, the food was just as amazing! Some of out favorite dishes were the lobster roll with fries, the Chilean sea bass and the scallops.
Loved our server Jarad. Everything was delicious and great ambiance. We’ll definitely go back.
We experienced outstanding food and attentive service. It's still a gem of a restaurant in DTLA!
Love this place! Chris is the best server!
This place is absolutely wonderful the food from the appetizers to the desserts and the waitress was so friendly. I definitely will be coming back when I visit Los Angeles again.
Excellent. Love your restaurant. My steak was well done when I ordered medium, but still delicious.
Wonderful experience everything was delicious!!!!!
It was great to be back in one of our favorite restaurants in DTLA. We sat at the bar and the bartender by the name of Anthony assisted us... fantastic service!
Thank you- we will be back
Our first inside meal in 13 months. Top quality food with service to match.
Every item we ordered was amazing without a flaw to be found. The server was very nice and served well but the check in the end needed to be corrected after finding a duplicate charge. We will come back again for sure.
We went to celebrate My daughters birthday. Food was delicious & staff was very courteous and helpful. Have been here a few times & will continue to go back.
The service was not great, the staff was nice but I waited 30 mins for a water.
Everything was perfect! The chilled seafood tower was phenomenal! Brandon, our server was attentive and very charismatic. We will be back!!!!
Continues to be the BEST dining spot for fish in Los Angles.
Great! Staff, service, food all top notch. The PAC building is beautiful and will enhance your dining experience if you valet park in the PAC building.
Water grill is finally open after a full year of being closed due to Covid. We live downtown and this restaurant has always been one of our go-to favorites. Not to mention it’s one of the oldest restaurants in LA est in 1989.
I am thrilled to say that Water Grill is still that amazing place to eat when you want great service, great food and great ambiance.
Chris was our sever and he couldn’t have been better.
Come just for the table bread- Asiago cheese stuffed sourdough and salted sourdough bread with butter. Yumm.
Come for the fresh oysters or sushi. It’s all good.
We ordered the black cod entree and a mighty good burger and fries.
They have a decent selection of drinks and a great choice of beers. So glad you’re back Water Grill!
Service could’ve been better and we weren’t impressed with the food
Great to see them back open
Deli lugar para tomar un trago y los platillos muy ricos no
Looks/feels like a slightly higher end Applebee’s restaurant.
We are so glad they are open we a great time and felt very safe
Date night with my wife. Couldn’t asked for a better evening.
First off, the ambience is very welcoming. It’s more of an upscale restaurant but my boyfriend and I were dressed super casual and we still got treated just the same as everyone else. The food itself was exceptional and went far beyond my expectation. You can tell that the chefs are peculiar about the food they send out on the floor. I must say that it was worth every penny!!!!
Very enjoyable, good food and service, we’ll be back!
What a difference a week makes! The staff have found their stride once more and I was delighted to dine on excellent food, perfectly prepared, in comfortable surroundings, served flawlessly in an unobtrusive and professional manner. Well done Water Grill!
Seasonal halibut cheeks were fantastic and the roasted beet salad, to die for!
Absolutely fantastic. The Lobster Roll was amazing. The fries were perfect and the oysters were chilled and juicy.
Well done and great to be back.
Newly open again - so no doubt still a few kinks. All staff very friendly...service a bit slow - but they may have just been giving us time to chat and relax at table. Chilean Sea Bass was outstanding. They did forget we had a birthday at the table. Overall - nice to have this place back - still recommended for special occasions.
So happy to be back at Water Grill. I loved food and the service.
Water Grill will take some time to find its footing again I suspect. The entre was good though the Brussel sprouts were underdone, despite my asking for them to be cooked thoroughly. The desert I ordered hadn't arrived after 20 minutes so I cannot comment on it. The servers on duty appeared to be overwhelmed with the number of diners, which looked nearer to a 50% house than the 25% capacity mandated by present regulations. I had to approach the front counter in order to receive my bill, which I had previously requested from my over-burdened server. Perhaps I just caught them on a bad night.
Great service and food. My favorite restaurant all the time. I’m so glad they reopened.
For me this was my first restaurant that I considered fancy, honestly the food was really good but I was not impressed. I was expecting to eat something that Gordan Ramsey would normally make or eat and I think it fell a little short then meeting his standard as far as taste. I was brought up eating fast food majority of the time so my expectations were high and unfortunately a little disappointed for the price we paid. Overall I would give the restaurant 3.75 stars.
This is our favorite seafood resturant and has been for many years. The food and service has always been terrific.
The waiter never checked back to see how the food was. Also, I mentioned in my reservation that it was my dad’s birthday. Nothing was said to my dad.
Chris, our waiter and the young lady in training did an excellent job. The food was up to the Water Grill standards.
Love this location. All workers are extremely friendly and the food is great.
The selection of oysters is great, I've had the lobster roll king crab legs, sea bass, and a steak everything is delicious
I want to know why I was able to book this restaurant through OpenTable when it is Closed. Made a reservation for my birthday and had to then scramble to find another place to eat. Please fix this. The DTLA location is closed.
