Both Steven the manager and Michael our server did an excellent job taking care of us.
The food was outstanding and the service was expeditious! We needed to catch a train and they were helpful to get us there on time.
The Water Grill is a classic!
We look forward to our next visit.
We’ve been here numerous times. This time was a bit different. The food was t as tasty this time around.
"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."
I had a great time took my parents to water grill in dtla and amazing food everything that we order was just perfect. The drinks were amazing I ordered the castaway and my mother ordered the grand Avenue both were great drinks. Oysters were perfect and no complaints. Service was on point
The food was outstanding I waited to get served and appetizer for a long time so didn't like the wait time. It was very noisy there and crowded. Use. The ambience was OK nothing too special but I really did have a good time here I would give it a 4 out of 5 didn't blow my mind a great food and lovely waiter. The manager also came over and wanted to know if everything is going well so I thought that was pretty special
Glad they are back. Not inexpensive but always a great dining experience
We’ve been long time patrons of Water Grill and this was our first time back after pandemic. Service and food were exceptional and better than we remembered.
Side dishes were lovely. It was packed so service was incredibly slow but the server was very friendly. Seafood was unimpressive. Best seafood dish was the raw scallop.
The quality of the food was good to average but the prices were very high. I don't mind paying high prices for amazing food but it bothers me to pay high prices for average food. I was disappointed.
Great food, service, and setting in DTLA
Amazing service, Trevor was great. Really cool ambiance and the food is always amazing.
First time back inside a restaurant and hoped it would be worth it. This place is obviously well managed, and I understand most staff returned after a pretty long shutdown. Service was attentive and informed, food tasty and wonderfully presented. Very complete bar selection and amazing wine list. I will return when in L.A.
The seafood tower was amazing and so fresh. The 20 ounce steak perfectly cooked.
I enjoyed out evening at Water Grill - Downtown. I especially enjoyed the Calamari, Oysters Rockefeller and King Crab Legs. The drinks were interesting though not terribly good. The service was adequate but not great. The table next to us seemed to have ties to the staff. There was a lot of congregating and too much noise.
I think, on a different night, we would have had a better experience.
At present, no plans to return.
Attentive service, great food (albeit a rather limited menu). The wine list tended to be a group of the "unusual suspects" rather than a truly curated list. Ambiance is nice, and convenience to downtown is perfect.
I had the king crab legs they were amazing. The oysters are great, they have a great variety East Coast and Pacific Ocean,. I sat at the bar Anthony was very informative and makes a great old-fashioned and a mojito. I haven't had anything bad to eat here everything is great. And don't forget to try the bread pudding for dessert
They didnt do anything for my friends birthday
Came in without a reservation sat at the bar for dinner Anthony took care of us.GREAT MARTINIS
Loud. Had to send the halibut back because it was over cooked and dry, and they didn’t even take it off the bill.
forget any other seafood joint :) , this is this spot to be!
Excellent ambiance, the oyster to die for, best quality of sea food .Highly recommended Scallops
Great foods and friendly staff. Grilled octopus was incredible, they didn’t go cheap with shrimp for shrimp scampi, and soft shell crab from Maryland was very tasty. I had their margarita, and it was kind of disappointing.
Muy buena comida excelente atención su manager con una gran actitud sin dudas volvería gracias
Had a wonderful experience dining at Water Grill. Staff was accommodating, ambiance lovely, food delicious. Trifecta! Score. Thank you for a nice afternoon Water Grill :D
Chris was our server, and he made our dinner so fun and so special! He’s an absolutely amazing server, and i’ll have to request him the next time i’m there! He always made sure we had what we needed and checked up on us frequently!! It was refreshing to have such a fun server!
Bday. Food was great. Service was great. Place was great
I ordered the scallops, which were delicious and perfectly cooked but they were very salty. I mentioned this to the waiter because I wanted to help. He insisted taking it off the bill and I kept telling him I didn’t want that and the meal was excellent. I know he wanted to compensate me but I was embarrassed as I didn’t want free food.
I just wanted to give honest feedback.
However, it was a nice gesture and the waiter was very kind. All four of us had a delightful meal and of course we will dine there again...when the Philharmonic starts up again.
Great food, service and wine!
The food was delicious and the restaurant had a dim and welcoming atmosphere. The prices were fair for the food quality. All staff we encountered were extremely helpful and genuine. 10/10, HIGHLY recommend for a date night or any special occasions.
Everything was excellent.
We had Jared as our waiter who was amazing and so so kind. Food and drinks were delicious as always.
It was less than expected. The service and food were mediocre.
The food and service were great. Love everything about this place .
Everything was outstanding! Highly recommend.
Chris R was our waiter, and Trevor was training with chris. Service was immaculate!! They were very attentive! Food was amazing! I’ll definitely be returning.
The best thing on the menu is spicy lobster roll and margarita
The service was primo! A server from another table noticed that I needed something and came over to help. Our waitress was so helpful with suggestions, friendly and on top of everything.
The food was excellent too!
Great location and comfy atmosphere. Good place for a date or family/friends gatherings.
