Beautiful ambiance, great ocean view, and good food/drinks. Recommend the WT Old Fashion, the Lamb Chop starter, and the Passion Fruit Cheesecake. This place always makes me feel like I'm on a mini-vacation!

The 6 oz filet with added bacon jam wins every time. Cooked medium rare with the perfect amount of color. I cut right through it with a knife and the consistency as I chew is perfect.

I’ve been trying to replicate that filet for years, no success. It’s a variant in the Marvel universe or something.

The staff was nice and clean looking. Food didn’t take forever. Brought me my check quickly and validated my valet parking for me.

Came back with my colleagues as we had an excellent first time experience last time we dined. Service was excellent again! My steak however was not what I had asked for. I requested rare and the meat was about a medium. I ate it of course because I was hungry and did not want to wait longer, but left a piece to show our waiter. I mentioned it to him and not sure if he did not hear me or did not understand. I will always pay for what I order, but I was a little disappointed in how that was handled since I wanted the chef to know. Not sure when I will be back and overall the experience was good.

Really nice restaurant in the Hyatt. Beautiful bar and they were able to seat us outside which was nice. Would prefer to table with a better view. Food was very good and our server was fabulous. The chili and Seabass was perfect

Sat outside per covid, but beautiful and relaxing setting, pleasant and helpful waiter.
Had 2 young children, their food arrived first , as requested.
Waiter's recommendations were great, sea bass was perfect, tomahawk steak met the hype, appetizers unique.
Looking forward to another trip to the Hyatt and this restaurant, for certain.

This was our first time at Watertable. The food was so good. We tried the bone marrow for the first course and the sauce on it was so good we wanted to lick the plate. Our entrees included sides which sometimes is lacking at this price point. Parking is valet at the hotel but the restaurant validated.

We will definitely go back!

Came here for our anniversary, and the ambiance is great for that intimate conversation with my wife. Quality of food is great but pricey. Valet validation is also a good plus.

The food is delicious, unique and American food dressed up perfectly. Yummy drinks and beautiful indoor and outdoor dining. Can be dressy or casual and not feel out of place. Price point is perfect and for the amount of food is spot on.

This is a lovely restaurant. We were so happy with the service. Our son loves bacon and asked for (at dinner!), we had explained that restaurants don't have bacon at dinner. The waiter said he would see what he could do and then the manager came out with a huge pile of bacon for him! They had no way of knowing, but we were in town because our son is being treated for a chronic illness at the Children's Hospital and we are desperately to get him to eat so it meant the world to us that they indulged his desire.
I will also add the restaurant is spacious and beautifully decorated--a great place to talk and relax. The food is excellent and the bill came to much less than we expected.

As usual, the food and wine were outstanding. Unfortunately, the service was sub-par. After being seated, we waited about 10 minutes before I had to ask a busboy to get our waiter so we could order some wine. Not good, and not what we have come to expect at Watertable.

Warm crusty bread served in a paper bag...nice touch! Asparagus and bean side dishes were really good. The Shrimp Starter was a winner.

Food was over priced for quality and quantity.
Waiter never came back to the table to see if the meal was ok after it was served.
Ordered something to go unseasoned and it was loaded with salt and pepper!
