Very friendly staff. The food was so delicious. Lobster bisque was great and the BLT was unbelievably good and BIG.

Lovely atmosphere, which you pay for in the price of your food. Though advertised as being gluten free friendly, for a place with a good selection of gluten foods - offering a couple of salads and skipping the bun if you ordered the burger seemed...More

Reviews were all over the map, so we decided to come on a Sunday for dinner for our first try of this restaurant. Only half of it was in use, and that section was about half empty. Shown to a nice 4-top near the window,...More

Have not been to this venue since it changed hands a few years back, mainly because the reviews looked mixed. Finally decided to go. Food definitely not as good as previous restaurant in this spot. I would say it was mediocre. But it was the...More

I've been to the water house restaurant twice in the last six months. The food has always been very good. The menu is somewhat limited but I kind of like that so they can really concentrate on making a few items very good. Menu changes...More

I have been thinking of trying this place for a while now, and It is on my list for the Fall. Or it WAS, anyway. No more! Is this the way the staff really talks to guests who give their opinion on a bad experience? Usually, great restaurants become and stay that way by being attentive to, and accommodating of their guests in addition to serving quality food. Because I don't have the time or inclination to be treated like BelgiansNYC, I will skip the restaurant, because I wouldn't enjoy being blamed for my (reasonable) opinion. There are so many other places to try, what a shame.
