Arrived about 12:00 on the nose for Brunch, ( This is also an excellent restaurant for dinner, this is just a brunch review) and it was very busy but we managed to get one of the few tables available, you might want to make a reservation. Our waiter Chris was fantastic and immediately offered us some champagne and orange juice... More

I was here last 8 years ago and did not have a good experience. However after my most recent visit I would definitely return sooner. My husband and I both had the surf and turf, I had the lobster and he had the scallops and they were both great. The meat came with potatoes on the plate, my only complaint... More

Excellent location in downtown Burlington, we had a table overlooking the lake where we could watch the swans. Good variety of seafood, shrimp, oysters, tuna, crab legs, smoked salmon etc. Roast beef and Baked ham. Omelet and Waffle bar, desserts. What more would you want. The bread bar was a little lacking!

An excellent location in Burlington for a Sunday brunch. The choice of items on the buffet were good along with the service. The view of the lake was wonderful.

My hubby and I went there for our anniversary and I have been there for brunch with my daughter. It has an amazing view...it hangs over Lake Ontario!!! The food, presentation, decor and ambiance are excellent. The service is also elevated.

My wife really enjoy dinner at the Water Street Cooker especially at this time of year. It has a cool relaxed atmosphere with a Great Water view. The fresh perch and pickerel make for an excellent entree, but the apps and deserts are special as well. There roast beef is also a good choice. There was a good wine pairing... More

We had an enjoyable meal there in January but not so this time. Think they let the actual chef go. The fish I had wasn't cooked didn't even separate from the skin. I was asked how I would like it cooked that has never occurred in all the times I have had it before in other places. The whole dish... More
