The Pork Chop was on the fatty side for my wife, to the point whereby she picked thru the meat. the fried chicken was very good.

The fried chicken is one of the best we’ve had! And the burger was wonderful. Hard to take kids though since there’s no kids menu and things tend to be on the spicy side. But the service this time was outstanding!! We had a waiter that we had 10 years ago in the old Decatur Watershed. So that says a lot about their staff.

The food was just ok. Feels like you’re trying too hard. Odd ingredients in several dishes that felt superfluous and not successful overall.

The smallest martinis I’ve ever seen.

Our server was lovely.

Disappointing, top to bottom. Best thing was the girl that met us at the door. It used to be a tough place to get a reservation, now at least half empty. Brunch menu lacking, food was the same quality as IHOP. Orange juice from Publix. After having brunch at Miller Union yesterday with fresh squeezed juices and an inventive menu, this was disappointing. Used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Will pass next time.

If a chef in a restaurant cannot cook potatoes I won't go back again - sorry

We were really disappointed in our first trip to Watershed. The venue is lovely but on a Friday night it was almost empty. The food was a disappointment as was the indifferent service. My husband’s fish did not taste fresh and should have been hotter. My octopus was very mediocre. We won’t go back.

Watershed in Decatur was known as a great cool go to Southern hotspot. Brunch, biscuits and Sunday cocktails were always worth the wait.
Buckhead Watershed is a flop. Only 8 customers when we arrived. Despite this we had poor service, cold biscuits, and marginal meals. Fried chicken at KFC is better!!!
Beautiful venue and location but time to close!!!!

Currently one of the best restaurants in Atlanta. If you have not been to the NEW Watershed since Chef Matt took over you need to run, not walk, there. The food is so very inventive. It's a surprise every time you go.

Fantastic food, very pretty room, terrible parking.
This was a business lunch and this place is dead before noon. Empty room with AMAZING food. Really, this was a solid meal. Great service as well.
Parking signage is miserable as it is in so many of these "we rent in this giant building" places, and there is no valet at lunch.
Did I mention the food was fantastic. And the service? Great!!!
Parking stinks. Wonderful cocktails and bar service, I can personally recommend the Southern Chicken Monte-Christo and the Brussel Sprouts Appetizer is worth coming back for all by itself. Serious good stuff.

But the parking sucks.
SUCKS.
No signage so my guests were BOTH lost, and no valet at lunch.

The food was great and the drinks were great, however, our first waitress was honestly the least friendly and most condescending waitress I've ever had. Our second waiter (not sure what happened to the waitress) was friendly enough.

Restaurant was empty on a Friday night! No vibe. Must improve the experience from the parking. You smell odd smells and the lobby is cheap looking. Not good first impression.

The Father's Day buffet was a great way to celebrate with my husband and children. Everybody was able to choose what they wanted, and the kids ate free!! The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding.

The fried chicken is a must! However some of the other dishes we had the food was either over-sauced or too salty (brussel caesar and scallops with etouffee broth). The service was great and ambiance is always nice.

Absolutely delicious food, unique and innovative menu. Chef brought the food out himself and explained all the ingredients (locally sourced, organic). Service was impeccable. New ownership since about 18 months ago, they’ve kept the ambience and really upped the game on the menu. We dine out a lot in atlanta, this is a true gem.

We really enjoyed our meal. Would have liked more of a cocktail collection. Rabbit biscuits are delicious as was the Redfish. Crab benedict also really delicious. Tonic was flat in the gin and tonic but otherwise no other complaints. Lovely building!

The burger was awful, and the few fries served with it were cold. It was even more gross coming out on a cheap plastic plate with Homer Simpson in his tightie whities. Come on.

The entire experience was a fiasco. It was Mother's Day and the restaurant was slammed. It took longer than it should have to get seated for our reservation and 1 1/2 hours later our meals were served; but only after following up with the waitress and Manager several times. I believe our waitress was inexperienced, but at a place like Watershed, she should have had someone helping her, especially on such a busy occasion. The experience was so bad our meal was comped by the restaurant. I would much rather have paid and had a positive experience. Our other experiences at Watershed have been more positive.

Restaurant half empty on a Saturday night. Only had 2 brands of call vodka. Out of the fried chicken when the restaurant was empty. Limited menu if you don’t like to eat game. Easy parking. Nice interior design.

The food both chicken and sides were over cooked, the chicken breading was so hard that it could not be cut or open with the silverware. The side of greens were worsted than the chicken. We could not bring this to the attention of management because they could not be found. Our waiter returned to our table 25 minutes after bring out our food even though there was only three tables with guests.

It was shocking that the menu was so limited. Everything was either fried or in alot of sauce. If you don't eat shell fish or fried food, there was absolutely NOTHING to eat but a salad. We should have walked out.

This is my first time back at the restaurant since it left Decatur years ago and it was wonderful. Went for Sunday brunch and thought it was a creative menu and fresh take on brunch dishes. I ended up with more of a lunch dish - the fish and it was wonderful. Also tried the donut dessert and it was awesome. Recommended by our server and she didn't steer us wrong. Excellent service as well and beautiful decor. I will definitely go back.
