Absolutely not worth it. Don’t bother making the effort to come here. The menu is limited. The food is overpriced. Go eat someplace else in the area. Don’t make the mistake of coming to Watertable.

Our server, Ian, was terrific. We had a nice table outside which was much quieter than inside. Menu somewhat limited and quite expensive but everything was delicious.

We started the lamb chop appetizer which was fantastic! It should be an entree. We ordered the seabass, salmon, and filet. All were enjoyed by all. The service was impeccable. Bravo to the chef & staff!

Beautiful ambiance. I requested a table close to the water feature and there happened to be a wedding at the time. Food was awesome and the service good. Highly recommend the bacon jam for your steak! Our waitress was great.

It’s a nice upscale restaurant with beautiful ambiance and great service. The food is alright but nothing special in my opinion and definitely not a great value for the amount of food you get. Overall I had really nice time.

We had a most delightful dinner, food and service fantastic. My sea bass was out of this world. My husband’s filet was excellent. The cheesecake afterwards made it a perfect finish. Thanks also to our server who was great. Overall wonderful!!

Overall great experience it was our first time there. You can park at the valet in Hyatt the restaurant pays for parking up to 4 hours. We ordered the lamb chops as a appetizer which were amazing and the salmon with white wine and New York steak but forgot the sauce it’s most popular that goes with it. Hell even the bread was good. The waiters were very good never had to ask for anything we’re always on top of things. Me and my girlfriend both enjoyed our experience

If you're on vacation, or if you're taking a "staycation" - this is a two or three hour holiday not to be missed. A tight, well run kitchen with interesting and non-tourist menu options, this is a fabulous place to dine. Add in fantastic service, a well stocked and upscale bar, and it's hard not to spend an entire evening here.

A very nice experience. Food is upscale and more on the creative side. But tasty. Service a bit slower than at other places but just to the point of allowing a leisurely pace. Location and ambiance for outdoor seating is wonderful.

The food was amazing, the place and service was great. They are very attentative minus the host. We were lost trying to find the entrance to the place and tried to call. Couldnt get a hold of someone. Once we found the entrance. There was a girl just standing. And someone was also trying to call and she just basically just let it go through to voicemail.

But other than that everything was grreat. Would go again

This was my second visit to Watertable in a month and I have to say I was less than impressed this time. While the outdoor seating area is lovely and perfect for covid safety, the food and service was a bit disappointing. The truffle cheese appetizer came with one thin slice of toasted bread (think the size of a biscotti but much thinner), which wasn't nearly enough. The lobster tail was overcooked and already cut into four small pieces with two huge slabs of pork belly taking up most of the plate. The black forest cake dessert was "deconstructed" and I actually mistook it for a free after dinner treat since it consisted of a few rosettes of whipped cream, 3 or 4 tiny bites of cake and a few small dabs of meringue all spaced out prettily on a plate with a dash of cherry sauce. One the plus side, the asparagus side was generous and delicious. On the minus side, the waiter never brought us the bread he promised. Or came back to refill our wine. All in all not what i expected for a restaurant of this caliber and price range. I may go back but will order differently and ask again for bread if it doesn't arrive as promised. Pouring my own wine is no big deal, but it does go to a lack of attentivenes.
