    Awful experience all around! Most of the food was inedible. Service was slow. It’s really a shame as the view of the harbor is perfect. Marriott should really revamp this place . Not up to standards of a 4 star hotel .

    The rockfish, shrimp and grits was pleasant, but we are bot huge grits eaters, so we left most of that part of the meal untouched. The crab cakes over vegetables - the vegetables, including the puree corn that I was initially skeptical about, was good. The (broiled) crab cakes were okay; have had better elsewhere. The filler taste was a bit more pronounced tgan i would prefer. Ordered a side of roasted brussel sprouts, this was delicious!

    This restaurant was bad all around. Me(39), son(14), son(4). 1. Made a 9am reservation, tried asking if we wanted a high top, seeing I have a 4 year old, sat at 9:20am. 20 minutes late. Hostess had to set table: water glasses, coffee/tea mug, small bread plate, fork, butter knife, and the cloth napkins. 2. Ordered a coffee, 2 orange juices, and a water. There were three water glasses originally on the table. By the time I came back with my 5yo's cereal and yogurt, there were still no spoons to be found especially with ordering coffee, they forgot my 14yo's water, and removed all three water glasses from table. 3. The buffet was half available, as the scrambled eggs and waffles were all gone by the time I went up to get my food after my 14yo and 4yo were situated. Had to wait like 10 minutes with other people in line waiting as well. Food was mediocre at best. 4. Not even eating half my own breakfast yet, I only had a third of my oj and two sips of my coffee, the waiter places check on table. Essentially implying to leave asap. We weren't loud, obnoxious, dirty, anything, unlike the table next to us with three toddlers. Check came to $47 and change, gave the waiter a $6 tip, which is much much less that I typically tip, since I've worked in the restaurant industry, and tip generously. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

    Puruvian Steak was too thinkly sliced, made it feel like an after thought rather than the main entree. Was drowning in sauce, to the extent where the fries were soggy and I had to order an extra serving of rice to soak up some sauce… Very disappointing, the flavor was good but everything else was mid or low level

    Absolutely god awful experience. Made a reservation on open table for 2pm. Arrive at 145 to a sign that says “closed until 5” worker comes out and I say I have a res for 2pm. He looks at me startled; says “ we don’t do reservations for 2pm” woman comes out and says “we can offer you the buffet for $23 a head.” We go in and there’s literally 4 items. Chicken ribs Mac and cheese and beans. We paid $60 for this. Highly advise against ever going to this place for anyone ever

    Service was terrible. 20 minutes to get a glass of wine and an orange crush soda. Waiter, Jay, walked by multiple time and tried to avoid eye contact. Very frustrating when you’ve been waiting a long time and he pretends not to see you. Food was terrible. Crab and spinach dip had no spinach and looked like something premade and just warmed up in the oven. Mezza plate was even worse. Soggy veggies, hard tasteless olives and and terrible pita chips. Cobb salad ok Seared scallops were disgusting and so overdone they were inedible. Hard peas and bad tasting tomatoes. Peruvian stir fry was a mess too. Onions and peppers with fries stir fried together. Steak was cooked to within an inch of its life. They didn’t have the ribeye but I can only imagine how they would mess it up too. Overall a terrible dinner and worth anywhere the $170.00 w/o tip. I will never go back or recommend. In fact I will most likely will warn people not to go eat at the Watertable.

    Thoroughly disappointed with this place for brunch. I can understand why it was so empty on a beautiful day even with view of the inner harbor. Brunch is gross buffet and even though we were at the only table, had to wait about an hour for a drink.

    We really enjoyed this restaurant. The view of the harbor was lovely, the service was great, and the food was tasty. We visited on New Year’s Eve, when the restaurant offered a buffet dinner for $100 per person. Although the food was delicious and the buffet featured a carving station, I still found the buffet to be a bit overpriced. After gratuities and taxes, the total was $248 for two people. Next time, I eat at Watertable, it won’t be on New Year’s Eve.

    There were only three items from the buffet I could eat, as I have a gluten allergy. I thought the breakfast menu would have been available, which would have had more choices. That being said, the omelet was very good. Our server was overbearing and made us feel rushed. He brought the bill before we were even half-way done with our meal and asked us at least 10 times if we wanted coffee to go. Made us feel very uncomfortable. Also, it was very hot in the restaurant.

    I ordered Johnny Walker Black (JWB) scotch which I drink regularly and know very well. The scotch they served me was not JWB. It was not good scotch. When I told the waiter, he was very polite and had the bartender come to my table with a JWB labelled bottle. This scotch they served was not JWB and not even Johnny Walker Red. My presumption is that they are exchanging the scotch in the JWB bottle for some other scotch.

    The breakfast buffet was excellent. They had a great variety of hot foods, fruit, pastries, etc. and even had a juicer with suggested recipes. They also offered made-to-order omelets and waffles. There was something for everyone. The price was higher than what we would typically spend on breakfast, but we were on a weekend getaway so I was expecting it. The host seated us at the "best table" with a nice view of the harbor. The waitress checked on us often to keep our drinks filled and make sure we didn't need anything.

    It was overpriced for the quality of food. We were there for 2.5 hours because it took so long to get our food. The servers kept mixing up orders and bringing the wrong food to the table or they would bring a course before the prior course was supposed to be served.

    Crab chowder was watery was good and Harvest salad was excellent but fish was dry. Maybe it sat under the heat lamp too long. Crab cakes were not mostly lump. Bread pudding was not flavorful at all. Service was slow and wrong salads were delivered. Bit disappointed. View and ambiance were outstanding.
