Food tasted good as advertised. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a great seafood. Our server was awesome and very welcoming towards us. She made our meal even better.
Halibut cheeks were very unimpressive
this was second time that we visited Water Grill and again very impressed with over all experience. good food and excellent service.
I eat here all the time. I like the atmosphere. Food can always be better. Some dishes cooked differently every time i go!
Staff was personable and we were well attended to throughout the evening as we celebrated our anniversary. In addition to that, everything we ate was exceptional. We usually go to Mastros to celebrate special events but we will definitely be back at Water Grill soon.
Celebrated a 50th birthday. Great food, service was excellent. Perfect evening
It was wonderful to go out to dine again. We were seated in the patio area booth and felt very comfortable with social distancing. The food was wonderful as was the service.
Excellent service throughout the meal in particular by Jeremiah and Arsalan. We will definitely be back!
Great seafood prepared and cared for by the great staff at Watergrill Costa Mesa !!!
My favorite place. I go here at least 2 times a week and I have never had a bad experience!
Excellent food and service. Still doing the weird ‘wear a mask when you walk in then take it off immediately thing’ but hardly their call I’m sure.
Our server was awesome and the food is always incredible!!!!!
Food and service is always exceptional. Only grievance is the masks. Very upsetting to be forced to wear a mask while walking to a table. Need to exercise more common sense on this issue when asking someone to pay $500 for dinner. Mask optional should be your policy.
Food would have been good but was way too salty. Every dish had an excess amount of salt on it. Also, ordered lobster Mac and cheese and was one tiny piece of lobster. Waiter said the tails were just for decoration. Service was good though overall. Wish the food was better.
I found the food to be extremely bland and not prepared well, especially for the price. My fish was tough. My husband’s fish was really dry. Really underwhelmed and disappointed with this dining experience.
We have been here often for special occasions. We usually love the food and visited the restaurant for Father's Day. Even though I had reservations and we were on time, we still had to wait 30 min to be seated, so that was annoying. The staff was great and very polite. The food generally is amazing, however this time we were extremely disappointed with the crab legs. We paid a pretty steep price for them and don't mind for excellent food, but they were extremely salty to a point we couldn't even eat it. Combine that with the salty melted butter and you just have a salt blast and can't even taste the crab. We ordered extra bread so that we can stomach all the saltiness but should have just returned it. It was very disappointing. Their clam chowder on the other hand was amazing as well as their Tuna Tartar and oysters. The calamari were great too but not a very generous amount of them. Overall we love the food there, was just very disappointed about the crab legs.
Service was poor: Sloppy and inattentive. We felt barely noticed. I chalk it up to it being Father's Day and the restaurant being slammed. Table remained uncleared and dirty throughout the courses. Drinks put on the table were overflowing, but no notice or cleanup. Seafood was presented multiple times without the appropriate "tiny fork" to use. It was a big deal just to get salt or pepper for our table.
Crab cake was a big disappointment: Lots of breading, rather than "lump crab barely held together by a touch of mayo" that we expected.
King crab entree was good, as was the unusual vegetarian sushi. French fries, oddly enough, were perfect.
8 oz filet mignon for just under $50, with no side items, felt a bit steep for the quality and presentation.
Total for 3 of us including tax and tip: $377. A poor value for the overall experience.
May give it one more try on a non-holiday weekend, and will update this review if the experience is different.
Food and service was great! However, it did feel like it was still a bit crowded for social distancing. Overall, not bad.
My favorite restaurant! Excellent seafood and meat. I think this is the best water grill. Way better than Beverly Hills location.
Great Father's Day Dinner.
This was my first time back to Water Grill since Covid and things seemed......normal. The service was great but the kitchen was backed up as it did take a while to get our food. With that said it was Father's Day and the food still tasted amazing!
First time here and everything was amazing!
Very good experience. Consistent food quality and service.
We went for lunch on Father’s Day! My honey was craving some seafood !
We started with the Oyster Sampler! It was fabulous !
We shared an entree - Chilean Sea Bass - it was awesome!
Overall, very good food quality and service.
Server was great...we had to wait for an additional hour from reservation to obtain a booth we requested. people just weren't leaving...would of been nice if we got an appetizer compted or something but all in all a great night! spent alot of money, ate well and enjoyed our birthdays
Overall took good measures due to covid but recommend you don’t come during dinner time on the weekends since that’s when it’s the most crowded (despite some spacing and screens between some seats)
We had eight people for a birthday celebration. We reserved the lounge open air area. Everything was as expected, excellent! The steps WG is taking to ensure the safety of their guests makes you feel safe and secure while not hindering the overall experience. Excellent service, excellent food and a wonderful experience!
One of my favorite restaurants, which never disappoints. Great food and always great service.
Phenomenal food and impeccable service. High end but reasonable prices. High value. Will return soon
Well I am going to give Noel!!!!! Big Kudos for making our dinning experience so much the better..it started off a little rough, but once contacting Noel, everything was just what we had hoped for ...for being cooped up for 3 months during the pandemic. The Water Grill was doing everything in their power to make it an enjoyable evening while keeping the social distancing in place. Thank you Water Grill
Great food, great staff and great ambiance
Great effort at social distancing and staff very efficient.
We both had lobster mac 'n cheese -- yum.
So my boyfriend and I made reservations to come here and we were both excited to come here and since all restaurants are now open in OC. So we made reservations for 8:00PM and the host greeted us so nice and even asked us where do we want to sit and she was awesome. So we sit outside on the couches and our waitress, Taylor. We felt the vibe from her that from first she did not like us at all! So we get appetizers and 2 drinks and birthday Dessert. We actually wanted to order an Entree and I told her about a fish we saw on yelp and she told me she would get back to me if it’s available or not and she didn’t. Our waitress was focusing on the others guests and with us she didn’t really check on us. When we told her we wanted the bill, it seemed like she got mad. I mean if she provided a better service then we could of ordered an Entree. Anyways all in all, this restaurant is cool to hangout and chill and if you want to eat luxury then come here. My boyfriend and I won’t come back here honestly, I wish we had a better experience. Other than that we took nice pictures.
great atmosphere, nice friendly, courteous service and food was good. Overall a very pleasant evening
Amazing food and service! Such a wonderful evening escaping the outside world for a nite!! Our only complaint would be that the bar was VERY slow. It took about a half hour to get drinks both times we ordered them. However we understand that things are taking a bit longer at the moment and we have to extend some grace to restaurants right now and for that we were just grateful to be back at a wonderful restaurant.
We had a great experience first time out since COVID & we felt safe & the food service & overall experience was fabulous!!
It was exciting to be there again. Nice people and good food
Great night ! First time there and with Covid distancing in place ! Had a great experience - throughly enjoyed the Bristol Street cocktail as well as the Filet! Coming out of a Fish House was on point - one of the best I have had ! Glad to be back into the world again with fine dining !! Thank you and service was perfect as well !
