We have been dining here for several years (including most birthday and holiday celebrations) and have always been very pleased with food and service. We had reservations and were the first ones to arrive at their opening at 5:00pm. My daughter really wanted to sit at the fire pit table but one of the staff told us that was already reserved for a party of seven people; yet two hours later when we were ready to leave the table was still empty and there was only one other small group dining outside as we were (entire restaurant was quite empty). For birthdays my wife always orders a birthday cake from her favorite bakery and brings it to the restaurant to celebrate at the end of the dinner (as we always do at other fine restaurants also including Sir Winston's, Mastro's, Five Crowns), and it has never been a problem. This time when they were ready to bring out the cake, our waiter informed us that there would be a $5 per slice charge due to health regulations!!! What does $5 per slice have to do with health regulations? Since we are regular customers and purchase alcohol with our meals and the place being so empty, you would expect them to be quite accomodating. NOT.

From the moment we arrived our experience at The Watertable was wonderful- we had delicious cocktails in the comfortable sitting area outside the dining room. Service was excellent- our waiter, Cameron, was attentive and helpful. Our food was so so good- bread was hot and tasty served with soft butter, our salad was fresh with chunks of bacon, and creamy dressing. I had a chicken breast on the bone grilled to perfection with a creamy buttery wine sauce that paired so well with the chicken. Our waiter treated us to a gelato with macrons and fruit and chocolate because it was our anniversary! Overall just a fabulous meal!

Our always-helpful waiter, Kameron, brought fresh bread (so yummy!), got our favourite craft cocktail, and got our order in promptly. The lamb appetizer was delicious. The Prime New York was perfect; that said, it was more than I could eat so it will be enjoyed again by us later. Thank you!

Was super excited to eat here based on reviews, but the Chilean sea bass was unfortunately unseasoned and tasted very fishy. I actually shared a bite with my son who loves seafood and his first comment was , “ewww, it tastes so fishy.”
My older sons meal needed to be sent back as it was delivered cold and our youngest sons pasta bolognese was very flavorless.
The potato cakes, salmon, and wedge salad were good, but unfortunately not worth the cost of the other underwhelming and disappointing entrees.

Foods and service was great. Music was kinda loud. It was a little chilly given where we were sitting far away from the outside door.

Such an incredible experience! Food was the best I’ve EVER had in quite a long time, cocktails also suburb. My husband and myself travel a lot and we very much were both blow away by the food here and attention to detail. We will be back again once we are in the West Coast area again.

From start to finish our dining experience was top notch! We were seated immediately and liked the atmosphere. Service was impeccable and the food was phenomenal. My wife and I were very impressed - so much so that we ate there again for breakfast!

Waiter was arrogant, he ignored us for most of the service. Food was average ,we had a wedge salad that had little or no dressing and was small. Would definitely not visit there again.

Very well run restaurant in stunning Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort. Many fine dining food options as well as the more typical starter & entrée items. No sense of trying to turn our table. We dined for 2-1/2 hours with impeccable service from staff, in particular our server, Ian.
Ian & Watertable chefs accommodated our gluten-free needs of 3 at our table (true Celiac Disease so can't get this wrong). Ian knew whether gluten was in any dish and he knew if a different preparation of that dish was possible. Impressive.

Since we live in Huntington Beach we were hesitant because the restaurant is in the Hyatt hotel. Very surprised what a nice evening it was. Food was great, service could not have been better. They had a fantastic guitar player and the live music was excellent.

We chose a table on the patio to appreciate the ocean breeze on a chilly winter night; with the heaters going, and blankets available if needed, I figured we would be fine. It was perfect. We started with the fig/arugula salad which was good. My house-butchered steak was delish, and my guest enjoyed the salmon. We will be back.

The restaurant was gorgeous, the service staff was exceptional and the food was fantastic. We ate on the patio on a cool evening, but there are plenty of heat lamps and a fire pit to keep us warm and allow us to enjoy the beautiful sunset

Food was very good as was the service. Ambience was also very good. Price was way too high for what you got. Only the xmas menu was available. $75 per person, minimum!!! This was not disclosed at the time I booked the reservation. There should have been full disclosure.

It was fixed price three course meal for Christmas Eve for $75. Service was excellent. In previous years a complimentary appetizer was included. This time even side vegetables were extra item. Food was fine but not extraordinary and thus overpriced. Nothing negative in specifics.

The service was excellent and attentive. He timed everything nicely. It was a slower night but nonetheless the execution was flawless.

We shared the baby lamb chops which were very tender and tasty. Each of our entrees (NY, Sea Bass, Langoustines) were cooked to perfection and seasoned to enhance flavor.

At the end of the evening we were pleasantly surprised with a desert tray that was decadent.

Great night and dinner!! Thanks!

Our meal was beautiful. Kameron's attention and service was outstanding. Even though we were celebrating an anniversary, we brought our 8 year old along, who thoroughly enjoyed her steak dinner. I had the oxtail, which was stunning in presentation and absolutely delicious. I also had a taste of my wife's langoustine dish, which was also yummy. We had the cheesecake with gooseberries for dessert, which was a great paring - The gooseberries cut nicely against the richness of the cheesecake. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
