Had to flag server down for refills. Ordered no bacon but burger came with bacon.
Mathew was a polite and energetic servers. He was constant with me and my date, making sure we were content and happy. Give that man a raise. The Blue Tuna was phenomenal and I’ll be sure to come back again. Compliments to the chef.
Fresh seafood for sure but not spectacular
Recommended by hotel and did not disappoint. Would return and the cocktails are amazing.
The prices were raised significantly from the menu online. The food wasn’t great and came with very little food and no sides. Would not go back.
Under served and overpriced. Better places in Santa Monica to eat and not get ripped off.
Having to eat at small tables outside was the only issue. Once indoor dining is once again allowed, it will be 5 stars across the board.
Decent restaurant but with COVID restrictions you are essentially having a $300/special occasion meal on the sidewalk. I booked under impression that they would be using their 1st row of regular tables next to huge open windows but boy was I wrong...
We had a great experience at this restaurant. We had the seafood platter for 2 and loved it. The food was very fresh and well presented. The service was great , especially under the pressure of the Covid restrictions.
Great staff. Server and manager both top notch.
Food was amazing, prices were reasonable, great service and prime location
Great dining experience and excellent customer service.
Hands down, the best lobster rolls we have ever had (and we've had a lot!)!.
It was our last date night together until we become parents. I have to say it was 99% Covid BS related, but being seated a few feet away from a rat trap, next to the alley and the food being over cooked, drenched in oil and tasting like it was warmed in plastic doesn’t justify the $328 bill.
Excellent food. Great selection of fresh fish.
Outside dining. Valet Parking.
Right across the street from the beach.
Food was amazing, I loved it. I will definitely be back.
My party and I were happy that we were able to move to a table that was adjacent to a heater! The wait attendants were very knowledgeable about the food, wine, etc and were friendly. I want to return soon!
Customer service and waitress were wonderful. First time taking children to WG and experience was just as great family dining.
This restaurant is across the street from the beacj, so the view was spectacular. We went on a Wednesday evening, so it was not crowded. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.
The server yesterday John was excellent I and my girlfriend really appreciated him. I didn't get his last name but he was at the Santa Monica location at 12pm 10/21/2020.
Food and service were impeccable. They sat us in the far back back corner (when everything else was open) so that was the only negative thing about the experience - we had 6 in our group so was more understanding of this with Covid restrictions on indoor eating. Sea bass was incredible, sea food platter A+; lobster Mac n cheese had so much lobster! I wish they carried a lobster bisque here!
This was not our 1st time at a Water Grill restaurant. The 1st time was in Las Vegas and we didn’t know they had one here in Santa Monica. We loved the one in Las Vegas so we had to try the one in Santa Monica. Traffic noise is what it is however, being across the street from the ocean is nice!
The server was great and really made us feel special. It was our anniversary and she made it as great as it could be in the middle of a pandemic. The food was great and this had become our go to for special events.
Dinner on the sidewalk may not be your idea of fine dining but Water Grill is making the best of it.
Amazing food. View and staff
Tables outside separated with Plexiglas feels reassuring right now ;) Great service, our waitress was really nice. Fish n chips was basically one nice big piece of fish with an amazing crunchy crust - very good. Key lime pie was a winner.
Really great ( 5 * ) service from the reception; manager; assistant manager; waiter ( new hire and really well trained ); and wait staff.
Inside when I went to the bathroom all the chefs, wait staff and waiters were consistently wearing their masks properly and looking after their health and ours.
Noisy location for sidewalk location, mostly due to auto motor and tire-on-pavement noise.
Clear plastic partitions used to separate tables and tables cleaned thoroughly and labeled as such after cleaning.
All COVID measures consistently and applied above the CDC standards.
Food was excellent and staff professional and cheerful / thoughtful.
We loved eating at The Watergrill in SM. This was our first meal in a restaurant since March. I thought the restaurant did a good job in regards to safety conditions and the food did not disappoint,
We always enjoy this restaurant. The service is always superb, the food is excellent and the ambiance is great even now during Covid. One of our favorite restaurants and we will be coming back often. Reservations are highly recommended.
Great customer service and food
It was great! Food was amazing and service was good!
Great for seafood lovers! Love the covid improvements. I think the sidewalk dining is even better than normal inside dining for that European feeling to be a wee bit closer to the beach with the sun and breeze. Highly suggest the Margarita Verde for an amazing drink.
Perhaps I had too high expectations. Very good food but not great food and fantastic location Great service
There was no space to wait for a table. While waiting we were told the manager would be coming by to take our drink order. We waited 45 min for that - we counted 6 open tables that were cleaned and disinfected, yet we continued to wait even though we had a reservation. The food was cold, the mash potatoes were extra runny- almost sauce like. The drinks were watered down, hardly any alcohol in them, the filet was tough (even though we asked for medium rare) .... we have been to several water grill locations and have never had such an experience. It’s unfortunate. The things that were wrong can’t be blamed on covid or challenges due to covid , it’s just lack of quality and service.
With Covid we very rarely eat out. It just is not enjoyable anymore. Water Grill - Santa Monica changed my mind. I wish I could remember the server, but the entire staff was just great. We were early coming in from the I.E. Needed a drink and the Maître de was able to procure us a drink menu which helped. I enjoyed the Spiney Lobster. My wife had the Halibut. But we started with an Oyster Sampler, and Cold Shrimp and Scallops. They were great too. The Water Grill pays attention to detail. I had to go back and thank the manager for such a wonderful evening. He remembered my name. That was a nice touch. Anytime we choose to eat in Santa Monica again we will be back to the Water Grill. Thank You
All good service excellent
The covid set up is simply not working for them. We were sat on a table set up in the road, past the curb. I assume this was pre approved by the city by we had buses and runners passing by us. It simply did not feel right. My date and i both ordered the salmon that was very bland and dry. I would not go back until indoor dinning was back
Great fish and crab
Just a really lovely dinner. View was beautiful. Service could not have been topped and food was outstanding. Cannot recommend highly enough
Food was AMAZING! The Chilean sea bass was perfect, as was my husband’s halibut collar & FIL’s ribeye. A little too sunny at 2pm...I got a bit sunburned...but overall a lovely setting outside with an ocean view. Also, all staff wore masks & visors, plastic partitions between tables.
