Highly recommend. Food and service is always spot on
We try to go several times each month, Outstanding in every way!
Great food and our server was outstanding with his knowledge of the menu, wine pairings, desert and more. Price was $350 with tip for four so a bit on the expensive side for a frequent night out but for special occasions Waterman Grille is on the top of the list for restaurant choices.
Great place, great food!
It was a great evening, our server Jolie was excellent, food perfect.
Tremendous service and great steak.
Thank you! Very glad you enjoyed.
We celebrated our 13th Anniversary! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant was very nicely appointed, the food was fantastic and our server, Dan, was EXCELLENT!! His wine suggestion was perfect! We will definitely be back!
Thank you for celebrating with us and glad you enjoyed. We are glad Dan could make your experience even better too. Hope we see you back here again soon.
Always a fun weekend in Providence!
Pretty spot, great food and service!
Thank you Carla!
Overall a fine dining experience. Would come again.
Thank you Moe! Happy you enjoyed and happy you will come back again soon.
Awesome food...great setting.. and the service was excellent...thank you Nate!
Thank you David! Glad you enjoyed and we will pass along your gratitude to Nate.
Seated promptly at a high top as requested-a little surprised to see new born infant and young child seated in this area. Opted for the 3-course menu, a very good deal. Mac and cheese very good with enough left over for a doggie bag. Roasted chicken over couscous as delicious as the previous visit. One dessert also too much to eat in so nicely packaged for us to take home. Only our 2nd time using our rewards account, but points posted quite promptly. Can't wait for another visit.
Thank you Birgs! We can't wait for your next visit too. Happy to hear your rewards posted quickly too - always a great way to earn more rewards!
This is our favorite restaurant. Food is excellent.
Thank you MikeandLynda! We are honored to be your favorite. We look forward to seeing you next time.
Celebrated birthday. Usually you receive a complimentary dessert or drink. Not this time.
Pancakes were not a good value. 3 for $13. Pancakes were bready not moist.
Waiter overcharged us for mimosas. But he corrected the tab.
Thank you for the feedback. We will have the manager reach out to you as requested.
Celebrated my hubby's bday. Food was amazing. Loved the grilled octopus! Thanks for the birthday dessert. We will be back.
Glad you enjoyed and happy you decided to celebrate with us!
This restaurant really surprised me. I ordered the fillet and it was overcooked compared to what I asked for and slightly burnt on top. Despite this it was still remarkably tender and the taste was excellent. The mashed potatoes were also some of the best and fluffiest I’ve had and dessert was nice too. Never recommended a restaurant that overcooked my food before but there’s a first time for everything as this one is worth the price.
Happy to hear we could surprise you and glad you enjoyed it all. Thank you for the recommendation
Food was AMAZING...best steak i ever ate. Had a wedding downstairs & was a bit noisy, otherwise a 10 out of 10
Thank you Jon! Really glad you enjoyed your steak. Hope you come back again soon.
Our party enjoyed a variety of dishes and every one was delicious. Comfortable seating and attentive service.
That's what we love to hear. Thanks Mickey!
Amazing experience every time! Don’t miss the special 3 course from Sunday through Wednesday !
Thank you Drews! Glad you enjoyed and glad you enjoy our Chef's Menu too!
Really enjoyed a lovely evening on the outer porch! Thank you.
Thank you and glad you enjoyed MoModo!
Out of the way location on the river-wonderful dinner!
We enjoyed every moment at Waterman Grille- from the greeting at the door to the coffee and dessert- this experience was by far our best in New England. The gnocchi appetizer is a must and the grilled filet and ribeye were perfectly done. Service was unobtrusive and our waiter made great recommendations!
Thank you for joining us Kathy and glad you enjoyed every moment here. We are truly honored to hear you say we were the best in New England. and we sincerely hope you will come back and join us again.
Fantastic food and service.....as always.
Thank you Bonnie. We take great pride in our exceptional service and glad you notice.
Celebrating a friend’s birthday at the Waterman Grille was definitely the right venue! Paul, our server, was extremely personable, funny and very attentive. The food was delicious, as always, and the $29 - 3 course selections were great! The desserts were absolutely scrumptious!! The pastry chef should be highly commended for her delicious, unique treats. The candy bar dessert was sinful!
Thank you for joining us Love2eat and so glad to hear we were the right venue for your celebration. You were in good hands with Paul. Happy to hear you and your friends enjoyed and we hope you call come back and join us again soon.
The staff were welcoming without being overly attentive; the view of the water was great with the added bonus of watching the crew teams practice. Having never visited RI before I appreciated the recommendations and that the chef served me a bowl of white chowder, an off-menu item that I’ve never truly experienced on the West Coast. From start to finish it was a perfect meal and I recommend it for anyone looking for a great dining experience
Thank you Iris! What a great review and we are truly happy you enjoyed. We are glad we could be part of your trip to Rhode Island and we hope you come back if you find yourself in town again.
Very nice and cozy restaurant. Great for date night. The sole was phenomenal. This is why you come to the northeast to eat seafood.
Thank you and we think our sole is pretty great too. Glad you enjoyed and hope we see you again soon.
Nice brunch on a very pretty day - the venue is welcoming throughout the year.
Thank you HeyLeise. It is a particular great time of year for brunch outside (but glad you think we are welcoming year round too).
Sat outdoors, fantastic weather for the end of September. Food was great. Had the hash special, plentiful, my wife had the pumpkin pancakes with roasted pretzel topping, excellent. My mom, unfortunately her eggs were a bit under cooked to her liking but she still ate them ( I would of sent them back)great waitress, upbeat and always smiling.
Thank you and glad you enjoyed your brunch. The weather is perfect this time of year for an outdoor meal. Thank you for the review and hope you join us again. Please pass along our apologies to your mom - we would have loved to have remade her dish for her so she could have enjoyed.
The food, service, & atmosphere was simply amazing! I definitely will be returning in the future!
Thank you Juanita! We look forward to seeing you back here again.
We’ve been coming to Waterman Grille for years. Very consistent...good food, good service, fair value. Two criticisms this night...service was slow...and I’ve noticed a steady price creep, particularly with respect to the pricing of the specials. I recommend you ask the price before ordering, if that matters to you. Otherwise, remains a good place to dine...highly recommend.
Thank you Zimmy! We are honored to have earned your business for so many years and glad you enjoyed. We appreciate your feedback too. As you know, exceptional service is what we are known for and we never like to hear that a guest experienced anything less. We hope you see more typical results on your next visit.
This is absolutely one of the best restaurants I have been to across the States!! Everything was simply perfect. Food is phenomenal. Service is great.
I asked for a table next to the water for my wife birthday. When I arrived, the table was ready for us with a nice card wishing my wife a happy birthday. Then after the dinner, they brought us a pie with a candle to celebrate. Great gesture from a great place!
I will certainly go again if I’m in RI. Too bad they are not in NY.
Thank you Nader! What a truly kind review and we are grateful for your feedback. Thank you for celebrating with us and we are happy you enjoyed. Maybe we will open in NY so you can come visit us more. Thanks again!
Food is excellent, we got an outside seat on the river. What a beautiful spot. Service was great.
It is a beautiful spot! Thank you Jack. we are glad you enjoyed.
Gorgeous view! Ambience was fabulous! Menu was excellent !
Thank you! That's what we love to hear.
This place is a gem and go to spot for impromptu nights out. Great, comfortable atmosphere with knowledgeable staff and the chef is spot on. It’s a must try.
Thank you! We are really happy you enjoyed and we will pass along your compliments to the team.
Kayley- Best Server Ever! What more can I say! She made our evening memorable and sent us off to Newport with great recommendations of where to dine.
Cheers to Kayley! We will be sure to pass along the compliments.
The food, service and ambience was excellent. For my two out of town guests, this was the first time that they dined at Waterman Grille. It was a wonderful experience for them, and one that they will remember for a very long time.
Thank you Kevin! We are honored you chose to bring your guests here and thrilled to hear it was so memorable. Glad you enjoyed.
Our waitress was super funny and charismatic, the food was amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant!
We have a great waitstaff! Glad you enjoyed and happy to hear they made your experience more enjoyable.
Wonderful brunch! Brunch partitions were also very decent and can’t go wrong with $5 mimosas and bloody Mary’s
Thank you Deb! Glad you enjoyed (and yes, those $5 mimosas and Bloodys are always a delight. Hope we see you again.
We had such a nice brunch there. Right away they brought out a card for my friend's birthday signed by everyone and then they later brought out a birthday cake. I think that is definitely the best birthday celebration I've ever seen (especially for a brunch which is typically less expensive than a dinner). We were very impressed and will definitely be back.
Thank you Elyssa! Glad you enjoyed your brunch with us and we are glad your friend enjoyed their birthday. We look forward to seeing you again.
waiter was great. Food was fantastic
A great place to go
Thanks Paul! We are glad you think so and hope we see you again.
The service was great. The food was horrible! We all had something and not one of us enjoyed our meals. They were over cooked and had no flavor. My husband had the swordfish special and it was delivered cold. The bread and the view were the highlights...
I'm sorry to say that we won't be dinning at The Waterman Grill again.
We are sorry to hear this Jeanne as exceptional food is what we built our reputation upon. We never like to hear a guest did not enjoy, let alone the whole party. We'd love to hear more and encourage you to call our General Manager Michael Accetta at 401-521-9229. Michael would love the opportunity to discuss your meals and how we could have done better.
