Lovely to be seated at a little table by the fireplace on a chilly evening. Took my waiter's recommendation on a lovely glass of red wine, a California blend. It was great, a fine complement to my lamb. yummy!

We were there to celebrate my mother-in-law's 93 birthday and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.
What made it was the remarkable food and exceptional service from our waiter. I can't recall a more engaging waiter that really made you feel at home. He made sure my family felt special and we did. We will definitely be going back to enjoy another great experience.

First, I have to be honest. My husband made reservations to LSXO, but they messed up BIG time. That will be a separate review. A blessing in disguise is Watertable. Not that we never intentionally wanted to come here but if I had been the one to make a reservation for our 6th yr anniversary...Watertable would have been on top of my list...actually my husband's too. He only chosse LSXO because I wanted to eat lobster and Chilean seabass...and on Sundays...Watertable had a pre fixe dinner that doesn't include lobster or Chilean seabass. Anyways...in a nutshell...LSXO messed up so bad because even though my husband made a reservation for our 6th yr anniversary a week ago...they sat us at the bar. REALLY??? WOW! How do you seat a couple celebrating their 6th yr wedding anniversary at the bar??? Seriously? Never going to go to LSXO for sure. Anyways...when that happened...I told my husband...let's get out of here and head towards Watertable. We ended up going to Watertable and such a BLESSING! Delicious food, great price, good amount of food and IMPECCABLE service! Aside from this, a great atmosphere in the patio and even though we had dessert as a part of our pre fixe meal...THEY STILL GAVE US A CELEBRATORY DESSERT FOR OUR 6TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY! So, if you want delicious food, a great deal and impeccable serivce....GO TO WATERTABLE!!! We will be back for sure to have the lobster and Chilean seabass!!!

Our first time at Watertable and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Our server, Lance, was great; knowledgeable (and entertaining!). Of note was the Butternut Squash/Carrot Soup. Just. Fantastic! We also appreciated the champagne and gelato to commemorate our anniversary.

We all enjoyed our various and sundry meals... very unique menu with some recognizable entrees that they've added their own flair to along with some uncommon menu items like roasted pheasant.

The service was outstanding. Our server, Ricky, was engaging, attentive and fun the entire evening. The ambiance was very nice as well. We sat outside in late November and were very comfortable. This was due in large part to the heaters mounted overhead just above our table. This was much better than the traditional stand warmers.

Overall a very good experience and fit with our out of town business dinner goal of finding a good place to eat that is not affiliated with a National Chain.

Watertable specialized in serving basic food in a relaxed, elegant, and luxurious setting. The standouts were the "build it yourself" items on the right side of the menu where you could choose your fish or meat, sauce, and sides. Though perhaps looked down on by sophisticates, the quality of the fish and its preparation were outstanding, the same for the filet. Although perhaps lacking a bit of panache and professionalism, the service was solicitous and efficient. The only downside was the starter of hamachi crudo, which unfortunately may have been a bit turned, since it had a funny taste and my wife was briefly ill after eating it. The patio was extraordinarily pleasant with spacious and comfortable seating on a somewhat chilly evening, with blankets and heaters available if needed. A definite highlight of the HB dining scene.

Loved the food and service. The only bad thing I can say about the restaurant is that there was a live musician playing the evening we were there and it was too loud. If he toned it down a couple of notches it really would have improved on our experience. With the noise coming from other people, plus him, we could barely hear one another.

Probably the best meal I have ever had! Our group shared the starters: scallops, lamb chops, and potatoes. For the main course I had the pheasant which was excellent as well as the garnish. The highlight was the chocolate 4 layer cake. The 4 of us shared 1 piece and it was so rich and decadent. Definitely would recommed this place!

Very disappointed after all of the great reviews. The prior restaurant in this space was
wonderful!! They need to bring that chef back. Bottom line- the food was awful!!
The scallops smelled fishy, the salad was dry and prickly, the fish was basically inedible.
Fortunately the wine and the company were excellent- I was hoping for a good upscale
restaurant for Huntington Beach- not this one!!

Selected Watertable for location and bonus points and was pleasantly surprised throughout the evening. The entry area is cozy. We were seated outside (6 for biz dinner) where it was pretty quiet even when it got busier. The wine list is outstanding (we had Turley red zin!), and everything we tried was delicious. I'll definitely be back.

Located inside the Hyatt resort, had indoor and outdoor spaces available. There was live music indoor when we went there on Saturday night but we chose to sit outdoor under the palm trees and by the fire pit. Smoking is not allowed on the patio. Food was good and prices are fair. Could be good for a date night or a friend get together.

The food was amazing! It is a small menu but offered fish, chicken, steak as well as the popular hamburger. Our salad, entree and dessert were really good and the bread was the best anyone had ever had. I wasn't as impressed with the drinks we received - custom craft cocktails but that really is a personal preference.

I have mixed feelings regarding this restaurant. The food was good, however the bread was served in a paper bag, as if we were at the county fair... and no butter or oil... just bread... in a bag. Odd. Then afterwards I had accidentally left my credit card and the waitress knew we were going to walk around the hotel for a while. It would've been simple for her to walk 10 steps to the valet check in and tell her to notify us she has my credit card once we picked up our car. The waitress had all our information from the reservation and from my credit card obviously. The food was good, expensive, but good. The dessert was just okay. The experience itself was disappointing but the hotel was beautiful.

An amazing and incredible experience. Our waiter, Brandon B. was outstanding. It was very obvious that he takes great pride in the offerings from this restaurant. He spent time with us explaining each item, where it came from and how the restaurant takes it's time to prepare and perfect each dish. A truly memorable experience and Brandon made it all outstanding. Lamb chops and chicken cooked to perfection. All nicely done and well worth spending your time at this incredible institution.

Arrived to still have a view out to the ocean from our patio seating - lovely. Enjoyed craft cocktails, then I had sauteed Sea Bass with their asparagus and white wine sauce, very good. Finished with dessert, their Black Forest something, it was ice cream with cherries and chocolate, topped with tiny violets, and just scrumptious!

This was our 2nd time here. We love outdoor dining. The service was great and the food good but feel that the pricing is a bit high. I know it's the nicer of the restaurants at the hotel but really, $25 for a burger? Most of the other dishes are on the out of the ordinary cuisine. A big plus is that they validate for 4hrs. parking.
