Water Grill - San Diego
Book your next event with us
Food was fantastic but my entire group wished the service would have been better :(
went there since i saw Stone crab claws on internet...But none to be found that day very disappointed but GM and all staff very nice and accomodating.
Great oyster selection and among the best mussels I’ve ever had. Good choice on wines by the glass. Attentive service. Highly recommended.
Excellent shellfish tower. Waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Olivia was marvelous. Very patient, friendly, and professional. As of right now, she’s moved up to my favorite.
This is the Legend’s go to restaurant for getting together as a group.
We celebrated three birthdays! Delicious seafood, outstanding service! Thank You!!
Oysters and seafood entrees excellent. Our waiter was pleasant but service was slow, especially considering we had an early reservation (5:15 pm). No desserts available except for the rice pudding. Waiter tried to justify that by attributing it to a busy Valentines Day that”cleaned them out.” Not a valid excuse for a high end restaurant.
There was an unexpected delay in getting our food, however our server did everything she could to accommodate us. Everything from the service, food, and atmosphere was top notch!
The Water Grill was recommended to me by a friend, and it did not disappoint. The service was comparable with any top restaurant in the Bay Area. We felt lucky to reserve a table as we found the Gas Lamp District was super busy on a holiday weekend - so, thank you Open Table - and we left it kind of late after being out on the water all day. My husband had oysters - super selection and the presentation was perfect. I had the Wild Shrimp Louis salad, which was chopped for me, and was more than I could eat. Very attentive staff and good food. The bathroom was clean and well-stocked, despite the huge crowd in the upstairs rooms and the full tables on the street level. You pay for what you get, so I'm saying it was priced accordingly.
Great atmosphere and excellent food, service was impeccable. Someone was always filling my water or asking us know if we needed anything, while also letting us enjoy our dinner
Everything was great except big disappointment at the end of our dinner on both of our desserts plates and this was on a special menu for Valentine’s Day.
My suggestion for the management or whoever oversees the kitchen to pay more attention to all the preparation of each plate before brought out to customers. For a beautiful high end restaurant but both of our dessert plates looks like we were being served from Denny restaurant that night and especially on our special night.
Amazing food. Fresh oysters. Steak was cooked to perfection and was very flavorful.
Yes but do not get the special could have had the same thing alacarte for half the price!
Valentine’s Day limited menu. Swordfish came out cold. Sent it back and then watched my wife finish her entree before mine came back out. When a new piece came out it was dried out. And no attempts by the staff to fix it. I won’t be recommending this place.
Set menu for valentines dinner was over priced. Food was average. Fresh warm bread is excellent.
Just had Valentines dinner here and had a great time. Great food and spectacular service.
Mediocre food, bad cocktail with no alcohol (really?). Recommend you come for oysters only
Great service and delicious seafood!! Knowledgeable staff. Just a step above. We loved it.
Ashley provides excellent service! Food is delicious and ambience relaxing and great! Would Lovett have had a vallet service!
Amazing food and location
Amazing food and drinks!
My wife and I visited while on vacation in San Diego. We split the mussels appetizer. It was fantastic and large enough for an entree. I had the lobster special, which was good. My wife had scallops which she said were too salty. They also surprised us with the bread pudding for dessert. We were too full, but had a taste and it was delicious.
Love the place
incredible seafood, great service, fun atmosphere for our dinner with customers.
Restaurant was noisy. Food didn’t taste anywhere near the word great. Hostess was friendly. Way over priced for the portion of food. Would not go there ever again and would not recommend it to anyone.
Great seafood restaurant!
Anniversary dinner, waiter explained the menu thoroughly and service was top notch. A surprise dessert was even delivered to our table. Highly recommend.
My wife had the spiney lobster and I had the sea bass. Both were very good, but the cook timing on the entrees was off. My wife's spiney lobster arrived hot, but my sea bass and sides had gotten cold by the time the meal was delivered. Pacing of the meal was also off and the restautany was not busy on a Friday night. Service was far better in the Los Angeles Water Grill.
Thank you Ryan for an amazing cocktails and oysters!
The restaurant was nice, our server was amazing and friendly, but the food was overpriced for what you get. Although it tasted good and presentation was nice, it is overpriced. If this were a restaurant on the water I could see these prices, but this isn’t waterfront and there’s no parking.
Great place ti reward my sales team with a special dinner. Everything was terrifuc!
Every worker was an elite worker. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. The food and drinks were top notch. I would recommend friends and fam to visit.
The food was mediocre but very expensive. The service was excellent, but we definitely would not go back.
Good and personable
Very fresh seafood. Was very impressed by the texture and flavor of sea bass.
Delicious food. Great late night find.
Water Grill is really one of my favorite restaurants, the service was great yesterday!
This is one of our favorite spots for date night. Classy, romantic and trendy with a great open view concept for city people watching. We love everything on the menu, however, on the top of the list is the sea bass and their burger. The service is top notch as well.
Absolutely incredible. Fantastic service
This is an overpriced generic East Coast seafood chain, in spirit if not in fact. On the West Coast? Why?
The food lacks character, yet the prices reach for the top. Our server was friendly and helpful, but couldn’t make up for the sad surroundings.
