It was my birthday and during this pandemic, there are a few places that can accommodate all the health protocols... but Water Grill does. I enjoyed the patio experience PLUS they have installed physical separators between the tables. The menu is printed daily (one use only) and everybody is wearing masks.
We enjoyed the food (pix attached) and I got a birthday dessert!
It was a special lunch with other food is, and it was spectacular!
Amazing!! Sat at the outside bar. Victoria, Derek & Sheldon made the whole experience! Very helpful with suggestions and hit the mark! Loved the manager Joy! Can't wait to come back!!
We went there for a crab craving! Covid Rules apply of course. they did a good job with physical barriers and the servers were wonderful.
Food, namely crab, at Water Grill is always good that is why we go there. I love this place but I also hate dropping $300 for a late lunch!
I guess you get what you pay for.....
Overall Well Done Water Grill I will be back after working more....ha!!!
7/5/2020. Seafood platter had mussels dried up and as big as my pinky nail clams and oysters not disconnected from shell. Shrimp were not cleaned lobster was mushy.
Fantastic as always, everything was perfect, food, service, safety protocol, management checking in, unlike many other restaurants you can have confidence that they've got your back! Can't recommend the Water Grill enough.
Love this place and highly recommend it for any occasion.
Some f the fish portions were on the small side. Crab legs were good as always. Service, attentive.
Food and drinks are on point as always. Servers and bartenders are extremely polite and provide impeccable service. Hosting staff needs improvement. Mask policy needs to be relaxed. Happy 4th!
Food was amazing and we love this place because of the large outdoor seating, shellfish options, and no corkage fee!
There were 5 in our party and everything from the appetizers to the main dish was on point. The only hiccup was my daughter's order. She ordered the shrimp with grits and mentioned the grits had a "different taste." I looked down at her plate and noticed she barely touched her dish. The manager stopped by our table and asked if everything was ok and that's when my daughter mentioned her order. The manager was awesome as he offered her another dish. My daughter kindly declined as she had gotten pretty full from the appetizers. Overall, no complaints and I would highly recommend Water Grill to anyone but everyone.
This review has to be 50 characters.
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
Welcome back after the shutdown! I'm a local within walking distance, supported WG during their market sales, have no complaints. They have COVID-19 precautionary tools set up around the restaurant, I dined on the patio and it was set up for safety also. I do have to admit that I am kicking myself for not remembering the name of my server, but she was great. Will update review with her name once copy of receipt is found.
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.
We were there to celebrate Father’s Day and my parents anniversary. Service was REAL SLOW. Server forgot my bread for my take home meal. Other than that everything else was great.
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.
