Great place for brunch. Felt safe with their covid protocols
Excellent establishment. They take the precautions very seriously. Food is among the best in Providence. Great presentation and outstanding flavor profiles. Chef does the Culinary Institute proud.
Great place especially during COVID where you can eat on their heated porch.
Fantastic experience every time! Brunch is outstanding!
We ate at Waterman Grille for our 3 year anniversary and it was amazing! The drinks were just delicious and this is the first time we ordered specials at any restaurant and we did not regret it...they were so good! I think we will start ordering the special at different restaurants from now on, hope they are just as good as Waterman Grille! We will definitely be back next time we are in Providence.
Waitress was AWESOME. Food was Great!
One of our favorite places to dine out. It’s always a treat, the service is wonderful. We like to eat out side on the heated deck. There are very warm overhead heaters and the deck is over the Seekonk River. Just go and try it out.
I had the Karen Elizabeth Scallops dish and I loved it. Everything was well cooked and delicious. My partner’s order was wrong but the staff apologized and returned with the correct order within minutes. They even offered to keep my food warm in the meantime. The lighting inside was slightly dim. The restaurant is beautiful and staff is very generous. I recommend this to anyone looking for a semi casual/semi fancy vibe.
Such a gem in providence. Easy access to parking and every time we’ve visited the food and drinks have been outstanding.
Always a great experience!
Loved this place. Great food, strong drinks, great customer service.
Split the cheese plate and the steak special, everything was delicious and the ambiance was great with the fireplace going..drinks were really delicious..the seasonal mule and espresso martini
Cristi is a top notch server!
Great dinner experience ❤️
5 ⭐️ !!
Service was great
Excellent food. The portions are gargantuan. I should have recalled that before I ordered. The host and servers were personable. And we received a large flan on the house in honor of our anniversary. Thanks! My one complaint is that service was a little slow.
Fantastic brunch. Great staff. Excellent food and the sangria was outstanding. We will be back
The food was amazing but the general manager and server were absolute tools. They were extremely rude said they opened our reservation up at 5:30 pm when we had a 6pm reservation and we confirmed the day before. They were super rude to my friends and I and ruined my birthday dinner. They told us we would have to take dessert to go when I still had food on my plate, and it was a birthday reservation. We called and they weren’t even apologetic for their behavior. I am super disappointed because the food was outstanding but I don’t deserve to be treated the way I was when my party and I are spending a minimum $400 at a reservation. Highly disappointed, and wouldn’t recommend dining there for a birthday.
The food is fabulous although pricey. My husband added chicken to his squash dish and that came to $34. However, the flavor combinations and creativity here are amazing.
As always, the food was fabulous. Service was outstanding (Paul, our server was super personable and professional). It’s one of our favorite restaurants!
Put Waterman Grille at the top of your list to take friends out to dinner. Everything is top notch. Excellent wine and food selections. Spoil yourself and enjoy the view and the restaurant itself.
We had a very nice meal service was great food was excellent
Tasty food nice view. We were able to chat and enjoy each others company. The staff is friendly and the service is pretty good.
Outstanding food. Great service. Amazing location. We dine here often and even had our wedding reception here!
Great service, yummy food, fun seasonal cocktails!
food good - service very good - wine not good and high priced
The service was excellent. We were a group of 8, and not one drink or meal was forgotten. Great location to host a special milestone dinner.
It was my sons 30th birthday. We had outdoor dining reservations for a Sunday at 2:00. As we were placing our order the waitress told us it was still brunch. I was planning on buying my son a steak for his birthday, not an omelette! The food was good but it was disappointing. I wish we knew this when the reservation was made.
Three people as guests who were treated like dear friends. Exceptional in every categorical way. We are regulars, who will remain so. Grazie.
Waterman Grille is always one of our favorites. Never a bad meal.
Food and service was outstanding as usual. Always our go to place for consistently. Highly recommend.
We traveled 80 minutes to celebrate a birthday . Food was spot on delicious.
I did not enjoy the waterman salad but devoured my husband's blue cheese walnut salad.
My taste buds pick up different flavors since having medical treatment. Husband loved my salad.
First time dining here so did not understand seating. High hats are in the first room near the bar, dining seating is table seating over looking the patio. Patio is outdoor giving you the best view of the river. Expected temps to hit the low 40's last night so opted for restaurant table seating.
Covid restrictions are strict and enforced.
Calamari was a hot dinner item seeing many tables chosing this. Husband's rib eye steak was excellent .
Everything was great! The service the food the ambiance. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Well, no Covid rules someday soon would’ve nice! I will be back!
Great dining experience at Waterman Grille. Environment felt perfectly safe. We ate inside..tables were perfectly separated.. Ambience was nice. Food was great. Service was impeccable. I would highly recommend a visit..it was a wonderful night during these crazy covid times.
We ate outside on an wonderful Fall evening. The restaurant has seating on the riverfront and has heaters to make sure you are comfortable. The service was excellent as was the food. I had the Salmon dish and my wife had the pork chop entree from the menu. Both were perfectly prepared and well presented. Will definitely go back and highly recommend the restaurant.
A great restaurant, wonderful staff and delicious food; overall great experience. Thank you Waterman Grille for a great night with family !!
Limited menu compared to pre-COVID, but food still amazing and love the location.
One or my favorite R.I. restaurants for many years. They’ve done COVID 19 adjustments really well. I have no hesitation eating there. The deck has heaters and venting.
Rebekah (sp?) Was amazing. Our food was outstanding. We got the cheese board (which we love here) then my husband got the steak special and I got the red rice and squash dish ( i can't remember but I BELIEVE it was vegan!!!) everything was to die for! Manager came over to check on us and was very nice. We will always love it here!
Cocktails ok, salad ok. Swordfish, burger and service were excellent. Not a great number of options and a little pricey but gluten free rolls and attentiveness to the Celiac disease were excellent
4/4 dinners were excellent! The porch/outside seating and social distancing was done really well. We will go back again.
