I love that you can have a conversation in this lovely restaurant and be heard! Also, the food was fantastic, especially the amuse-bouche and the pumpkin soup!

Our server was excellent, but the kitchen was very slow, and the entree I ordered was all gone. Neverless, the food was delicious, so I'd definitely recommend Waterleaf to friends.
