I've been to the Waterman Grill many times. For this visit I sat at the bar for dinner and drinks. Jay the bartender/waiter was, as always, great. He makes a good drink and was very attentive.
Give Waterman Grill a try.
We had an absolutely perfect Sunday brunch, despite dreary the dreary weather -- scenic location; great ambience; excellent drinks and food (highly recommend the Eggs Benedict; the burgers at the next table looked wonderful too), warm and efficient waitstaff, ample and easy parking, all without breaking the bank. Wish we lived closer -- I'd go every week -- but we'll definitely return when we're in the Providence area.
This is our 2nd time for Brunch - Food was great, Bloody Mary's are hand done not with a mix and were delicious. Cappuccino was perfect, coffee was very good. The waitress was very attentive. The whole staff atmosphere treated everyone one like they were their only table. It was a pleasure and we didn't feel rushed at all.
WG does not disappoint. Another solid experience!!
My husband and I really loved the food and atmosphere. All the staff were gracious and helpful. The free dessert in celebration of our anniversary was a very pleasant surprise. It was very noisy but won't stop us from coming back.
Excellent. always. Very pleased-that's why we go back frequently. Tina, our server is always a delight and Steven is always a fine presence behind the bar. RE: Other visits, I should also mention Rachel- she's awesome.
Dinner on Sunday with friends. Absolutely fabulous to include ambiance, service, recommendations, and food. We go out for dinner in Providence often.... this is the best.
Love this restaurant and have been enjoying their excellent food and service for years.
Our meal was very enjoyable and service was excellent, great venue!
One of the best dining experiences we've ever had.. Waiter (Paul) was simply the best... Paul and kitchen were extremely accommodating to a change-up on one of the specials offered. Food was delish and interesting (the halibut special was awesome!)....They acknowledge your special occasion (should you be there for one) via personally signed card from waitstaff (and possibly also management?)..Speaking of management - our table was visited by one of the managers asking about our experience - which he seemed to listen to with genuine interest (not like some others, who merely seem to "go through the motions" in this regard, for show/points)
Loved this place and will definitely go back.
We had a very nice brunch at the Waterman Grille. The staff was very professional and attentive. The service was quick, food was great. It was a little loud but there were a couple of tables of very chatty women near us, some just a little louder than necessary. We both got burgers which were cooked just the way we ordered but the other menu selections looked really good too. Would definitely go back.
A fantastic meal..our wait staff was very attentive to our time schedule to make the theatre and extremely personable.
This was our second time at the Waterman Grill and we loved it. The food was delicious and plentiful. Our server, Nathan, was attentive, pleasant, and not intrusive. The view of the Seekonk river is great. We will definitely be back.
We were very pleased with our first experience at Waterman Grille. The food was excellent and we had a fun time on our date. The only drawback was my husbands drink seemed to be made not very well, and it’s something simple that he orders everywhere and even makes at home. Not sure if the soda was flat, or if a different product (other than Coca-Cola) was substituted, but he did ask for a second and it was still not much of an improvement...other than that the food was spectacular and we will go back!!
We had appetizers (salads, soup and octopus), entrees and dessert. There were 4 of us and we all enjoyed every component of our meals. We would recommend window seating for the view and because it seemed a little less noisy. Our waiter was excellent! He was extremely attentive, detailed with descriptions and responsive. A special mention about the desserts; the pastry chef is really creative and offers unique, delicious options.
Paul and Matt are the most amazing service management team in Rhode Island.
We love it here and have returned many times for dinner and brunch. We always bring friends and family when they are visting in Providence. Highly recommend!
Service was excellent. Matt went above and beyond. My halibut special was fantastic. I did not receive asparagus so Matt quickly resolved that. My wife loved her dinner and the pea soup
The food and service was great. The great octopus, the duck breast and the steak tips were delicious but it was the deep fried brocoli that stole the show.
We have dined here perhaps four times, about once every year. We consistently happy that we chose the Waterman Grille.
The filet was out of this world! It was our first time dining there, it’s a little pricey but we will definitely go back because it was a delicious meal. The service was great.
Was brought "upstairs" to a room that was easily 80 degrees. Date said she was fine, but i guess the benefit is I believe I sweated off some of my meal. Service was good, food was solid... but that darn heat. Fireplace though lovely, was blaring! Too bad as the temp was really a factor (date said "she was fine"), and it isn't the least expensive restaurant in the area so would hope for solid ambiance. So avoid that upstairs area, or at least ask to "feel it out" first. Overall a solid meal, though a bit pricey.
Always a great choice- food/drink always wonderful.
Reservations are always timely, never waiting around to sit.
Birthday brunch was excellent
The food is consistently fantastic. One of the best filets I’ve had. The service is always excellent. One member of our party has celiac, and they can accommodate gluten free requests. Reserve early, as they fill up fast.
Great dinner our server Matt was fantastic.
From the moment we walked in until we left,our experience was perfect. Food and service was amazing!
Overall awesome place, great ambience, fantastic food, just love it.
Great service and great food. They went out of their way to make our anniversary special!
It was our anniversary celebration dinner. A card signed by the staffs and a glass of champagne greeted us with a Happy Anniversary from our server. Our server Scott was knowledgeable, friendly and excellent at providing the best service. The food was well prepared and delicious. We go there frequently and we always enjoy.
The Waterman Grille is our go to place whenever we attend an event or the theater in Providence. Yesterday we chose the brunch menus as we were attending a 1:00 show at PPAC. Our meal, as always, was wonderful. Our server, Rachel, was excellent and engaging. She is a valuable asset to your staff.
This restaurant always serves you a great meal. The wait staff especially Rachel are top notch professionals who really care! I love it and the view and place itself is cozy and elegant.
My husband and I have been to the Waterman Grille for various occasions and have never been disappointed. We love the pan seared scallops and had many other delicious meals. The desserts are wonderful as well. The service has always been top notch.
Great ambiance, good service, a little out of the way but beautiful location & great food. A destination spot well worth the visit.
A lovely venue and terrific food. The service was great; we didn't feel hurried and our questions were answered easily with recommendations that were clearly coming from informed servers. Can't wait to return. And . . . parking for this city restaurant was a breeze.
Been there many times....will go again.....convenient location and lot of parking.
Went to Waterman Grille again and continue to love this place. The service was great and the food was delicious. Order the spare rib appetizer and enjoy the sauce and spice. I would also recoomend the short rib with polenta.
They also have a nice wine list and beers offered.
Service was amazing food was good but not outstanding
Absolutely fantastic service and food. The atmosphere was great can’t wait too see what it’s like during the summer.
