This is hands down our favorite date night restaurant. The food never disappoints and the staff is friendly and welcoming. We’ve tried every item on the menu at this point, and our favorites include the sea bass, the chicken, the salmon, and of course, the fresh bread!

The best part of this restaurant is the sincere and hardworking wait staff. The food is 100% mediocre at best, the menu is dated and unoriginal. There were three dishes with lentils in them, and not even the good kind lentils caviar or french lentils, just you're basic green lentils. I like lentils so I ordered the salmon with lentils side and whipped feta on top. Uck. The dessert was quite unpleasant, I didn't even finish it. The acoustics were terrible (High ceiling, cement floor, wall of glass). It was cold and dark inside. Even though it was two days before Christmas, and I had taken my adult son to Watertable for a festive dinner, it was not in the least. The prices weren't outrageous for a typical "fine dinning" restaurant, but the food itself was not tasty enough to be called fine dinning--which they do refer to themselves as and should not.

A wonderful meal! Has the 32 oz tomahawk and the bacon jam was the best accompaniment I’ve ever had. All the sides are delicious as well (asparagus, purple yams, mushrooms, chive potatos). And the bone marrow was excellent. It came with an array of mushrooms on top which my family is a big fan of and I felt was a different take on the usual bone marrow pairings.

The servers were so nice and checked in a lot to make sure we had everything we needed.

You kinda know its going to be a great place, based in the Hyatt Hotel but NOT part of the Hyatt restaurant chain. They strive to generate their own flavor and they succeed. I enjoyed every aspect of the evening, from the hostess with the million dollar smile, 1000 watt smile and the KILLER black dress. To our waiter whom was well trained and appeared when he was needed and vanished when he was not.

The food was excellent and my friend and I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and I can still taste it. Melted in my mouth and i did not need a doggie bag!

My husband and I are HB locals and have been coming to the Watertable for years. It’s by far the best restaurant in HB and one of the best in the OC. Never had a bad meal. Every single menu item is out of this world. We go for breakfast and dinner. Service is excellent every time. Compliments to the chef and the whole staff.

Visited on Sunday 11.21.21 for an 8pm seating outside.

Food was excellent and presented well. Wait staff was attentive and prompt. Outdoor seating options are very nice and spaced out well. Interior seating is also very nice.

My only complaint was from other diners who did not control their children from running around the tables of other diners and screaming back and forth at each other with no regard to those dining around them.

I purposely booked my reservation for later dining to try to avoid this. The restaurant Manager should have stepped in to ask them to quiet down and control the kids running around screaming.
