It was a snowy stormy night be we decided to venture out anyways. Our second time at Waterman Grill and it didn't disappoint. Our waitress was great, she provide detailed descriptions and answered all of our questions along with offering wine pairings for our meals that were wonderful and not too expensive. She was very attentive and made herself available throughout our dining experience.

Nice Job!!

Food equals the service. You want for nothing. Ambience is excellent as well. The Newport Restaurant Group as a whole does a great job, day in and day out. The Waterman Grille is one of their very best.

Great food and our waiter was very good. We were there at dusk and into the evening, so unfortunately the lighting was very dim and we had to turn on the 'flash light' on my iPhone to be able to read the menu.

A little stuffy. Sort of jam packed just raise the prices and give me some space. All crammed in one room. Ritzy crowd good food but it's reasonable all the ritzy rich folk can do better. One guy announced congratulations to your first billion. Settle down guy before you get your friend rolled in the parking lot.

My husband and I had a great date night at the Waterman Grille. We had chosen it based on review we seen online and took a chance. We had a fantastic three course meal for a very reasonable price. The view was stunning as well as the atmosphere inside the restaurant. The service was by far our favorite part of the night. From the signature drinks in a tiki cup, to the appetizers and entrees the timing was impeccable, and the service staff even switched out your silverware throughout the meal. Wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!

Service was excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. The food was imaginative, variations of foods that were familiar and introductions to new dishes. The Waterview was lovely even at night. The restaurant was smaller then I had thought it would be and very crowded, but I will take that as a sign at its success. Overall, and very good experience.

We sat with water views, cozy inside, watching geese, ducks, and the occasional scull move along the wide river. Our service was very attentive without being obtrusive. Our food was outstanding, chosen from a wide (and nicely priced) selection of small bites to full meals, vegetarian to meat and fish. We had perfect coffee, served in individual French-press pots.
Reasonably priced, especially when you consider the service and the views that come with the experience.
Very nice.

Outstanding value with Prix Fixe meal and everything was fabulous from the moment we walked into the WG to the moment we left. Our waiter, Dan, was exemplary and the staff even provided a Happy Birthday card to my dinner companion along with Happy Birthday written on the plate. Every course was delicious from mussels to steak to orange almond cake with orange sorbet. Bravo! Brilliant meal and ambiance with the highest quality of service.
Thank you! Cheryl M

Waterman Grille is a great restaurant to any occasion. My family and I went to celebrate an anniversary and fall in love with the restaurant. The service was excellent, our waiter Dan was very friendly and helpful and very attentive. The menu had a lot of variety, but the Monday special was a great value, great food (good quantity/quality), and the red wine (Nicolas) to accompany our dinner was very good. Great atmosphere inside the restaurant and the location is an easy drive and lots of parking space. Do not have anything negative to add about the Waterman Grille. Highly recommended.
