Great atmosphere ! We were celebrating an anniversary and the restaurant gave us complimentary drink to toast with! Food was great
The swordfish special was fantastic. Our waiter, Nate provided high quality service, good knowledge of the menu, and made our meal very pleasant!
Waterman Grille was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. When the hostess sat us at our table, there was a card signed by the staff thanking us for celebrating with them. They also brought over complimentary prosecco! Our waiter was so friendly and prompt with drinks, bread, and overall service. The view was stunning and the food was delicious. I can’t wait to go back!
The views of the river are lovely. The food is always delicious, and there are plenty of choices. Good wine and beer lists. And excellent service.
Great place for a girls night out! The food and service were excellent!
We like the setting and the service of the Waterman Grille. However, we found that the noise level was very distracting. We hope that the acoustics will be improved as we enjoy going to the restaurant for the food and service.
Felt a tad rushed; menu & wine list could’ve benn more expansive, but it’s a nice restaurant itself is lovely. Will be back!
One of our favorite restaurants. Can’t wait to be in the Providence area again so we can go back.
Excellent location of tables with riverside review for a romantic dinner with delicious food and friendly service.
Our third visit. The food was very good, though the dessert was a disappointment. The creme brulee was very 'scrambled eggy' not a pleasant texture and was refrigerator cold. Appetizers and entrees were wonderful as was the service. We also (unfortunately) were seated next to a loud group so conversation was challenging.
Very busy day with rain and road race. They got us to our table on time. Waitress excellent
Thx for another good meal
Always wonderful at Waterman. Great service today, as we had a crying baby, and the waitress didn’t rush us at all. Thank you.
This was our 3rd visit to Waterman Grille. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. The salmon with sweet potato puree and spinach was awesome. The passion fruit tart was so fresh and delicious. It was garnished with fresh cilantro which complimented the flavors perfectly.
Took my Mother for lunch. She raved about the food and the ambiance! Waterman Grille never disappoints!! Great job!
Four of us went out to celebrate a birthday. We each had different entrees, including a special order and all were great. Also had the crab cake starter which we split and it was outstanding. Tried 2 desserts and both were great - thanks for putting a candle and lettering on a desert for our birthday person. Our server, Dan, was attentive and very conscientious checking on food allergy issues. We thoroughly enjoyed the meals and experience. We’ll be back.
Went there for our anniversary. Our waiter (Dan) was lovely - made us feel very special. And the food was absolutely delicious.
Great service. Excellent and delicious brunch offerings.
We had a great brunch - the Avocado Toast was great as was the smoked salmon on a bagel. We did get a side of bacon and that was delicious. The joint was jumping and I recommend a reservation but there is usually seating at the bar.
Thank you so much for helping make my 12th anniversary special! The hand written card was especially sweet, thank you so much!
Fantastic every single time. Service is always top notch. Nice to see some tweaks to the menu too.
My wife and I wanted to go out for a nice dinner and a couple of cocktails, and relax. The food was good , but the relax part never happened. We were in and out of the restaurant in under an hour. We felt rushed and did not appreciate the overly quick service.
We had the halibut dinner special. It was amazing! Kudos to the chef
The service got 4 stars instead of 5 due to waiting for hot water for our tea and refill of water
The food was not great. Both soup and salad were bland. The noise level was horrible with a rowdy crowd at the bar which is way too small. The waitress was friendly but was rushing us through our courses. Too expensive too.
We had a delightful dinner at Waterman grille. The service was fantastic, friendly , comfortable and very attentive. the food was excellent--we split a salad and split an entree and split a dessert. Everything delicious . The salads are huge so good to split as a first course.
Lovely view of the river and the rowers gliding by. Food was excellent, beautifully prepared with some lovely surprises and service was polished but still warm and friendly. We’ll be back!
Very good people were very nice and food was great
Service was wonderful, specifically Nate. We mentioned on OpenTable that it was a special occasion birthday, and they brought out the dessert with a candle in it! Above and beyond service!
Amazing food and service and a great view The prixe fix menu is amazing and the $20 bottle of wines Sunday thru Wednesday are top notch!!!
Excellent meal and service was outstanding. Matthew's menu knowledge is superb!!
So excited we found this restaurant beautifully set near the water. The food was incredible, fresh, and creative. Lots of unique menu options not seen everywhere. Huge fan!! I’m a vegan and my husband isn’t, as we both left really content.
Nothing bad to say about this place. We will definitely be back in the future. Service from our waitress Jolie was exceptional, food was some of the best I’ve ever had. Atmosphere was great, great views right on the Seekonk River. 10/10
After a much-needed night out, I made reservations at Waterman Grille for my husband's birthday. As I have been in the restaurant industry for years, I would never choose a restaurant I've never heard of that I found online. Decided to give it a chance. Overwhelmingly ecstatic about my decision doesn't even come close to the experience we had! I started with the signature champagne cocktail that was out of this world!! The oysters we're so fresh and delicious, might I add that I've worked at the Oyster House! I ordered the salmon and it was by far the best salmon, that I've ever had in my whole entire life! The chef did an outstanding job with the complexities of flavors that went together like butter and bread! My husband ordered a steak and requested to have it blackened, and he was beyond amazed at how perfectly it came out! The service was incredible, the atmosphere was perfect! In the past two days I have had to have told about two dozen people how incredible that place is!! What a diamond in the rough... the staff, chef, and bartender deserve to be working in a high-profile restaurant in New York or something...hands down. If I could give that restaurant a thousand stars I would! The best dining experience I have encountered in a very long time!
Our meal was delicious and the service was excellant! All menus food & beverage are wide enough to offer something to please all tastes and the service of course was properly timed.
We took my mother out to dinner for her 89th birthday. She was tickled by the birthday card signed by the entire staff that was waiting at our table. At the end of our meal she was presented with a special birthday dessert. Those very nice touches that made her feel special. Thank you!
We hadn't been to the Waterman Grille in a long time and our experience made us wonder why! The evening was lovely! We won't wait so long to visit again.
After reading reviews, I chose Waterman Grille for a celebratory night with my husband. I was looking for great atmosphere and interesting food, healthy enough to fit a restricted diet. Walking through the door, visible fire blazing in the kitchen, the atmosphere totally hit the mark. Food and service were outstanding. We both had the lentil soup, monkfish and polenta cake. Can’t wait to go back!
The service was amazing and the food delicious. The staff go above and beyond to make your experience special. Ask for a table by the window if you can! It's a great view to be on the water in Providence.
Wife’s birthday. Just always a great experience and food quality is always very good.
The brunch menu at the Waterman Grille is delectable and varied. We were seated at a table by the windows, looking out at the lovely Seekonk River. We both ordered the Mushroom Grilled Cheese sandwich, which was superb, and we then shared the Waterman Dessert Sampler, which was also very fine. Our waiter, Peter, enhanced our experience tremendously—just enough attention, no "are you still working on that?", no sweeping away one person's plate while the other was still eating, and an utterly pleasant demeanor. Really, it could not have been better!
Very nice experience. Great food. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday and they made it extra special with a birthday card from the staff and free dessert!
The food and service are always very good. I enjoyed the rustic atmosphere as well. It was a special treat to see the girls practicing crew in the river!
