Our waitress was not friendly, not knowledgeable. We sent back the Tuna-tartare. Oysters were fair.

It’s not our first visit to this restaurant and we loved it. However this time it was a bit disappointing. Ordered fresh artichoke but only the heart of it (a small portion) was really edible. In my reservation I noted that we were celebrating a birthday and asked for a cozy table at the window. But we were offered a table in the front of the section meaning that we would be sitting in the way of other guests and servers. Not cozy at all. After our request they hesitantly offered another table. Mind you, there were a lot of available tables. And finally, we felt awkward when the staff brought a treat with lights and Happy birthday greetings to the table next to us. Nothing for our guest who celebrated his birthday as well. Maybe I should have asked the server but in my experience, when I book a table and note that we’re celebrating a birthday the staff gets it right. Well, I hope it was some sort of misunderstanding. Everything else was nice.

I would 100% recommend this restaurant and will definitely come back. The only thing is the waiters or front desk should explain the way so that the customers know the way around.

I have eaten at this restaurant before.
Saturday night they had no table that was acceptable.
They wanted to put us in the hall next to the bar. My husband and I refused.
We decided to eat at the bar. We could only get a bar menu not a full menu.
At any other restaurant I can always get a full menu at the bar.
This was their loss as my husband and I only ordered a small amount of food for a little amount of money. This is the last time I will go to Waterside!!

Great food and music. Danced till closing! The DJ was a bit full of himself but besides that it was a great night. Took my tip but didn't play the song I asked for "Despacito" till the end of the night. Very rude.

Ariel was a wonderful server as was the rest of the wait staff working on Sunday, Nov 10th. The food was great, my filet was cooked perfectly and I enjoyed it so very much. The avocado salad was delightful, not shareable, FYI. Great view of NYC for pictures before or after dinner. There was a wedding occurring and they seemed to be enjoying themselves which was really nice to hear. It was my sister's birthday and they brought out a sparkly candle with her dessert. I didn't even think to ask, since we we were all enjoying the meal and appetizers. The take out bags are actual cloth totes, something you can use more than once and not just to hold left over food.

After my third visit to Waterside, I was disappointed from the moment I approached the front desk. It took awhile for a greeting. I arrived at 8:25, and was told it will be 30 minute till a table becomes available. If I wanted to be seated at 9:00, I would have made the reservations for 9:00 not 8:30.
Once we seated at our table, it took 15 minutes before a server approach our table. I had to ask for water twice. Our order arrives, and now I am looking for our server to ask for some bread. The food was average not great for what they charge. It was my wish wife's birthday and I was embarrassed. I was ready to spend some money and have a great evening. We left Waterside disappointed. We found a place near by and, had a great rest of the evening. Sorry to say,that your staff was not impressive.

The food was good however our NY Strip steaks were overcooked. We felt a bit rushed as our reservation was for 5:30pm and arrived around 5:45pm. We have been to Waterside many times and request a table by the window but have yet to be accommodated which we find disappointing. We may reconsider going back in the future.
