Waterman Grille Ratings and Reviews
I found waterman grille when looking for a place w outstanding atmosphere and great food for my sons wedding rehearsal dinner. Visiting three times prior to booking ,We were very impressed and wonderfully satisfied. We continue to return and have thoroughly enjoyed sitting at bar, dining room bar table and upstairs for family dinner. The rehearsal dinner was amazing. Service and food difficult to beat... I love waterman Grille!! The rewards program is a bonus and gift cards always bring a smile.
We were looking for good food near home on the water. Very happy with our choice. All of the food was delicious and the service was really awesome! We ate outside on their patio (it is first come first serve outside seating so book reservation early if dining on patio is what you are interested in) with a nice view of the full moon and water where we watched Brown University crew and other boats quietly pass by. The food was all fresh and interesting apps and entrees. We would love to dine there again soon. We weren't aware when we booked our reservation and found out at the end of the meal that the owners also own a bunch of Newport restaurants that are all great like the Mooring, Castle Hill, etc You won't be disappointed!
We always come to Waterman when we want a great meal outside. The view is very nice, adds a lot to the experience. We had the oyster in corn meal app and it was very good. The batter was light and very tasty. We also had the smoked gouda and shrimp chowder, was very tasty. For entree we had the special, a black bass over swiss chard and a potato and chourico stir fry with a sweet broth. The fish was cooked perfectly, and the broth was good.
Waterman Grille is a gem. It may be a little "off the beaten track" (in a city that has so many great restaurants that are right downtown and "on the beaten track") but it's definitely worth the drive. It's only takes about 8-10 minutes from downtown and, hey, that's pretty much the same as driving 5 blocks crosstown in New York, so it's no big deal. Once you get there, you'll be rewarded with a beautiful restaurant, charming location and views, excellent food, and great service.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our night out at the Waterman. Staff was awesome and the food was great and good value. We reserved our seat and were so happy with our table view. Too bad we weren't there Sunday-Thursday to get the 3 course meal and bottle of wine...that looked like a great deal at $60.00.
It was an awesome night, we would definitely go back.
This was the perfect spot for a special summer morning brunch! We were lucky enough to have the perfect summer day to take advantage of the deck overlooking the Seekonk River. We enjoyed our food, the lobster croissant was filled with chunks of lobster and the Breakfast Burrito was tasty. We did feel our server could have been more attentive.
Dining outside on the covered terrace deck was wonderful even with a little rain falling. Our meal was excellent and the service was good as well. It was only our second visit to Waterman's, but it even exceeded our previous experience. Would recommend dining here either at a window seat or outside to anyone. Nothing we have ordered from the menu has disappointed us and that is all we can ask of a restaurant.
Elegantly casual, the perfect Friday night wind-down spot, with crisp, friendly service starting at the front working through the entire evening. Do specify you want outdoors if the weather is good and you'll see a side of Providence few do, urban/industrial funk reclaimed by nature. Bar downstairs looks to be the perfect spot to weather a winter storm.
What a great find! My husband and I dined at the Waterman Grille for my birthday. We left with our bellies full of delicious food. I can tell you I will look forward to going back soon. We had Cornmeal Crusted Oysters, Duck Duo and Waterman Steak. Creme Brulee and Chocolate Bread pudding for dessert. All plate licking good. The service was exceptional and loved sitting outside on the deck. I would recommend to definitely give place a try.
My husband, parents and I had brunch here this past weekend. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was great! It was our first time and we came on the recommendation of the Phantom Gourmet. I will definitely be coming back to Waterman Grille!
the food here is always good, a little different with twists on common food that makes it delicious and interesting, and always a pleasant staff and good views, and a lovely dining experience. We have to travel a distance to get here, but it is worth while and there is free parking which makes it easy. Wish it were in our neighborhood.
Arrived right at reservation time. We are from kook out of town and picked this place based on ratings but more importantly because it was on the water. While being seated we asked if we could have the table on the window overlooking the water. We we just told no and the only reason given was they had to be fair to the wait staff and it was this waitresses turn. Really? I don't care about that.
The food and service were ultimately very good and we enjoyed the dining but the initial impression was hrrible. Get a new hostess or policy.
We are in Providence on a regular basis and were looking for a new experience. Had 9:00 reservations for myself, my wife and two daughters and the table was ready right on time. We did eat inside, but the outside dining also look very nice. The service was very good and the food was wonderful. We shared appetizers and enjoyed them all. My daughter and I both had the Duck Duo and it was one of the best dinners we have had in a long time. The other dinners which included the short ribs and salmon were all enjoyed. We will definitley keep the Waterman on our list when we return to Providence.
Amazing filet mignon, fantastic wine and martinis, and great desserts! Wonderful gluten-free menu, too! Saturday night at 6 PM can get really loud, so you may want to dine on the deck if the weather permits. I was pleasantly surprised to see some people in shorts and sandals, some sundresses, and even a little one at the restaurant. The restaurant appeals to different crowds, and the meals range from average price to pretty fancy. There's something for everyone!
Our party of 4 had a fantastic meal here onSaturday night. The bar service was a little slow, but the pomegranate monitor was fabulous. For an app we had an excellent charcuterie plate for the table and the salads were fantastic. Many of the dishes featured locally grown and/or raised ingredients, making it a great experience.desserts were also a little on the slow side coming out, but they were delicious. Almost too hot would be my only complaint. If you are looking for a nice evening by the water,I would highly recommend this restaurant. A great place to sit and linger-service is a little slow, so make us
Re you have the time. You won't regret being here!
One of our favorite restaurants in Providence and we always take advantage of Restaurant Week by coming here-duck confit macaroni and cheese was out of this world!! The food is always fantastic, lovely view of the Seekonk River and friendly and attentive service.
we visited during Restaurant Week and the restaurant filled up quickly- a little too quickly I think for the staff to handle. Our food was delicious (calamari, steak, swordfish, swiss chard, lobster macaroni and cheese (?!) Our server was friendly and efficient, but the bar was backed up and one of our glasses of wine didn't arrive until one of the guests had almost finished his meal. That said, a manager or owner (not a waiter) was running food out from the kitchen and checking in with tables to make sure everything was ok. Also, our waitress invited one of our party to sample a wine selection before ordering to make sure it was to his liking. Side note- The wood-backed menus were a bit awkward. you could also skip the creme brûlée
We chose Waterman Grille as our restaurant of choice for Restaurant Week because the menu looked impressive. The appetizers were unique and the entree selection included seafood and meat. So there was something for everyone in our party. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was great. And the final dessert course made our night complete. We would highly recommend this restaurant to our friends.
Went here for a birthday dinner celebration. Our server was fair. Couldn't explain an entrée to me and didn't keep an eye on our drinks. Our second round of cocktails didn't arrive until halfway through our dinners. My meal went back twice for being undercooked; I others at the table were finished before my entree arrived back. Our guests' steak also went back for being undercooked as did the table of diners behind us. Desserts were good. This was my second and final visit. Would not recommend.
My girlfriend and i went as part of restaraunt week. I consider myself a foody and work in the business. Let me tell you, what ever chef thought of taking a half deccent piece of swordfish and serving it with blackened innedible skin still on it and swimming in a pool of what tasted like "Spagetti-O" sauce should rethink their life choices. If this dish is any representation of the qualty of food and flqvors you get for the high prices you pay her, i would never reccomend this to a friend, or even an enemy.
