Watercolour Grillhouse Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I like to dine here often. They have real good food and the tables have a view of the water. It’s a really nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly. We’ve been going there for probably a year now. We enjoy their sauce for their steaks and they started serving sushi on Sundays (I’m not sure what other nights they serve it but I know it’s not every night) so we get that for an appetizer. I like their house salad. They are pricey but we feel it is worth the price.
Although we made the Open Table reservation and the restaurant was far from full, we had to wait while the hostess got our table ready. Then we weren't even seated by the window as requested. Lamb shank, new item on menu, fell off the bone while the accompanying cheddar polenta was one of the creamiest we've ever had...very good. Pork chop portion so huge could only eat half. Not too thrilled with the pretzel topping. Side of creamer sweet potato very interesting as it came in fried chunks. Meals so filling no room for dessert.
Ordered drinks and appetizers. Drink came, appetizers served. Finished appetizers, THEN ordered our meal, a 12oz. Filet and a Porterhouse. Both ordered to be cooked "medium well." Received Filet very RARE, Porterhouse was closer to MEDIUM RARE. Sent filet back, came back still quite rare on a searing hot plate so I butterflies it and put rare side on plate to finish cooking it myself. At $40+ per steak= Unacceptable.
Credit card machine was "broken" and server had to run card at hotel counter. Received card back without receipt, had to go find server for hand entered reciept.
We live in Belleair and have recently made Watercolours one of our favorite restaurants.
We like to bring our guests there and are treated very well starting with the valet to the hostess to the waitress. The ambience is wonderful as is the food. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The food is bad for $48 buffet, steak was cold, the plates are dirty, choice is poor and low quality food. When went to get desert it was already removed because the restaurant was closing and no one even notified us. Bottom line is don’t go there for stake or any other food. There are plenty of restaurants available for less money and much better food.
I was disappointed because when I made the reservation for Thanksgiving dinner they indicated that the regular menu would be available along with a Thanksgiving special. I was quite surprised to see a buffet set up when we arrived. I chose this restaurant specifically because I did not want a buffet experience. I even checked the website the day before and nothing was mentioned about buffet service. That said, the food was pretty good although pricey with a 20% gratuity automatically applied to the bill.
Great place for a regular meal or special event. Made reservations thru Open Table with a special request and everything turned out perfect. The food is beyond great. One of the best steaks I have had anywhere. The seafood appetizer was fresh and tasty. Definately worth a visit.
The Hostess was very nice, found a quiet table for us. As an appetizer we ordered the cheese tray for $13. It was so big that we decided to get a smaller dinner and go back again next week for the dinner we had planned to get. This restaurant is perfect for special occasions or any occasion. There is a lovely open deck by the water in nice weather. If you want air conditioning you can still see the water from many of the tables inside. We live close by and have eaten here many times and the food is aways good. Tonight my husband had the wild salmon and it was perfect. I decided to have the dinner salad with shrimp. It was very good. We highly recommend this restaurant.
My wife and I had dinner with friends at 6:30 on a Saturday evening. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We like to sit at the tables on the bar level, and the view from there is an additional plus. We have found this restaurant to be consistently good, and we do use it for birthday celebrations!
Actually found a restaurant that delivers on their crab cake. Food was delicious and service impeccable. We had a very good server with a good sense of humor. The only thing we found lacking was mini dessert. Great concept but not well executed. We would definitely go back.
My first date with an extremely nice Lady, and the hostess sat us next to a huge table full of drunk, obnoxious, and LOUD table. They were so load we could not even talk without yelling @ each other. I ordered a "wedge salad", and was brought the house salad. I did not complain because my date was already half done with her salad. I then ordered the 6 ounce filet, cooked medium well. It came out barely cooked, and bloody red. I could not eat it, so I sent it back to be cooked some more. It came back very raw again, and I said the hell with it. I ate the outside parts and left hungry. I had to ask for sugar for my tea, there was nothing on the table. The waitress did take the steak off the bill, but the entire meal was just ruined. Also the bread seemed cheap, and butter was too hard to even spread it w/o tearing the bread. The place looks nice and has a super view, and the staff were friendly. But I'm afraid it was my first, and last dinner there. I usually don't respond to these emails, but felt it needed to be dealt with. I was truly embarrassed due to my choice of restaurant. Thank you, Ed Eggert @ 727-804-3582.
While the food was good, the service was poor. It was obvious they were understaffed, and the staff, even the manager, had little experience at a "fine dining" restaurant. The topper was the hostess telling our waiter to make sure that her friends "got VIP treatment and didn't get lost in the the shuffle" when they came in. We ate breakfast there twice, and it seemed like they had more waitstaff in the morning then dinner. If you are staying at the Marriot, take an Uber across the bridge for dinner. Watercolours is good for breakfast.
Nice ambiance for a hotel restaurant...right over the water. Great customer service, food was average. Appetizer (peel and eat shrimp) was great and you get lots of shrimp! Nice cocktail selection - around 10 on the menu on they all sound great. We had fish entrees (snapper and halibut) which were fresh...but recommend the blackened style to add more seasoning/flavor. Did not like the sides we selected - creamed spinach and Mac and cheese.
