We decided to go to Watermarc for my Birthday and so glad we did. Nice table by the window, attentive waiter, good atmosphere and excellent dinner! Specifically Sea Bass, triple filet mignon, and special steak of the evening. So, I would highly recommend Watermarc..

Excellent service topped everything. The ambience is classical pub like. The food was generous and for the most part taste. The mussels were less than ideal with a strong fishy aftertaste. They could do with a bit better quality control on the fish end of the Pialla which was otherwise delicious

We go to Watermarc on Sundays after church. The food is great and reasonably priced. Really friendly service. The best seats are by the front of the restaurant or on the tiny patio. Bar area is noisy. Love it.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. A romantic dinner upstairs with their killer Chilean seabass (maybe one of the best!), nice wine by the glass selection at the bar and a great place for lunch, probably the best hand crafted margarita in town!

Went here for a late lunch... I had fish tacos and my wife had fish and chips. The food was excellent, fresh and tasty. The service was excellent and the price was reasonable for the location. I shall return.

Very friendly welcome and service overall. Not forced, but genuine. Good advice on the menu as well. Great appetizers to share with lovely burrata. The three of us ordered a medium rare NY steak, but these were between medium and well done. Staff was very friendly in handling this though, and the 'new' steaks were well worth the wait.

Came here New Year's Day and of course it was jam packed! We were offered a table on the patio with patio heaters, however there is a gelato place right next door that I guess is delish because there is always a long line, but it's annoying because there is literally people hanging out beside the patio the entire time...

We decided to try Watermarc while visiting Laguna for our anniversary. The atmosphere is welcoming, the service was awesome and the food delicious. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, dessert and split a salmon entree and it was perfect. Spent twice as much the other day at Mastro's for the same quality here. We will be coming back.

Wasn't overly impressed with the food. Service was excellent. Price was at the high end for what was offered. Wouldn't visit again. Better values in the area.

This is my first time at this place. The service and the food was outstanding. Appetizers, main dish and desert was absolutely delicious. Definitely a recommended place.
