Had a great time with a group of five. Food and service were great. only downside - there was an extremely loud and large group near us, so at times it was hard to hear.

We had an anniversary dinner at Water Grill, Dallas and we couldn’t have been happier with the food or the experience. The waitress (Victoria) was pleasant and very knowledgeable about the food and helpful with pairings. The manager came by to check on us twice and even brought by one of their chef specialties to show us. The atmosphere was quiet and the ambience was very eclectic with great decorations of fishing and seafaring. The food was excellent. We started with King Crab Nuggets and Crab Cake appetizers. I had the Red Snapper Escabeche and my wife had the Chilean Sea Bass. We both agreed it was some of the beat prepared fish we have ever had and seafood is our favorite fare. We had the mac and cheese and brussel sprouts for sides, both of which were very well prepared, and finished off with a triple-cookie ala mode desert. The bartender mixed and excellent Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned for me and my wife regaled him for his rendition of a Lemon Drop Martini. We will definitely be returning to Water Grill and do should you.

Friday night dinner. Location was not crowded at all, able to get seated right away. Waiter was attentive, did not try to upsell on the wine order. Food was great, fish is easy to message you but order was cooked very well. Generous portions.

We wanted to dine at a nice place for a quiet birthday dinner and decided to try Water Grill. The Crab Cakes and mussels were to die for. I can't say enough good things about the staff here. They really made all the difference and ensured a great dining experience. Our first time dining here and it certainly will not be our last. The staff, service, and dining area were beyond excellent. Kudos to Milind, our waiter whom was very knowledgable with the menu and provided thoughtful service throughout. They even surprised us with a birthday dessert. Candy and another manager took the time to drop by for introductions to make sure we enjoyed the food. Truly professional.

We ate a Friday night early dinner at Water Grill. It was excellent! My husband had the red fish which was very spicy but good. I had the Seabass which was extremely good. It was fine dining & priced accordingly. I will definitely go back & not hesitate to recommend Water Grill to a friend.

My husband and I received a gift certificate during the holidays from our sons to this restaurant. We thoroughly
Enjoyed our evening. From the valet parking the friendly staff , expert knowledge of the menu to the
Service and delicious seafood. The environment was classy
and beautiful. My husband had the Spiny Lobster and I had the Alaskan Cod both were excellent and had the wow factor. The bread with toasted Parmesan on top was so good , I had to force myself not to fill up on it!
Their staff is well trained and seem to work with a company
worthy of their loyalty. A shout out to LeVonte who supervised our experience. We’ll definitely be back!

The bar was really slow - took 10-15 minutes to get drinks at our table. Heard there was a prom or something in the restaurant but took the bartenders away from regular guests.

Not good for $220 tab

Very nice restaurant loved sitting on the patio. Waitress took our drink order and after picked up the wine glasses in front of my youngest son and broke it over his place setting. Had the waitress remove and replace the place setting for both my boys didn’t want them to have a piece of glass still on one of their napkins and they get cut or ingest it. We had a dozen Hama Hama oysters for our appetizer which were delicious. My youngest got the cheese burger with fries which he did not eat the burger only a few fries but he loved their sea salt dinner rolls. My oldest boy had the clam chowder and said it was the best he ever had. He really liked that it came with whole clams in the shell. My wife and I ordered the Cioppino. All the seafood in the dish was way over cooked, it was basically all mush which wasn’t to appetizing except for the calamari which had the consistency of a rubber band. Broth was good with bread. Overall nice night with the family and maybe will try this place again but will definitely will not be ordering the cioppino.

The atmosphere was great, we started with a refreshing mood setting wine and took the recommendation for the seafood sampler try. Oysters were some of the fresh ones I have had in the metroplex. The European sea-bass was worth every bite. Great environment, service was impeccable and cost wort the meal...

Loved it and will certainly be coming back again! Some food items were a little disappointing but they were just done differently from what we prefer. The fish dishes were awesome and the seafood platter was great.

The macaroni and cheese side was super watery in its sauce, the wedge salad was fairly bland and the sundae was mostly whipped cream, so we won’t be ordering those again.

The ambiance was great, service was fantastic and overall we had a great time. We’ll be back again!

The staff were nice enough, but did not have caliber worthy of serving $50 entree’s.

Multiple errors with the food and service —but no offer of apology, or even simple recognition, that their staff and kichen were off. If the waiter or manager would have come around to ask, I wanted to ask if they felt the greasy, coagulated fish entree was supposed to look the way it did... or if they were simply having a bad night. First meal in a while I knew I wasted $ ($160 for 2 & only 1 alcoholic drink).

Paid to valet. — Valet driver handed us our car keys, no smile or friendliness, did not even open a door. We just laughed and figured it was the perfect culmination of a bad night out.

Service was quick and attentive. Excellent blue point oysters. The clam chowder was not typical but was very good. The crab cake was disappointing. The amount of crab meat was adequate but was finely shredded. This, there was little texture although the flavor was good.
