When I entered the restaurant was decorated beautifully with holiday decor and what sounded like live music downstairs. I met my best friends there for a post thanksgiving dinner. Let me start by saying the service was FANTASTIC. Paul our server recommended the most amazing food! I ended up ordering osso Bucco, scallops, and risotto to split between us all;... More

As usual, this restaurant is easy to find, nearby and yet far from the traffic, plenty of free parking. That's just the start, the food is always fresh with a beautiful presentation, lots of detail, and the staff couldn't be more attentive and professional

I came here for dinner with a friend and we opted for the pre-fix menu. As a vegetarian, there were several options for me to choose from which is a nice surprise. The entree was a bit under cooked and the dessert was not particularly good but overall I'd come here again.

Went here before Waterfire. Greeted immediately upon arrival and waitress could not have been more attentive or pleasant. I had the pork tenderloin, my wife steak. Both were delicious and the sides very tasty. We will come back when in the area. Only minor issue was that we wanted to make a reservation later than 4:30 but they said they... More

For my daughter's 16th bday we went to Waterman Grille! Never disappoints us and always seems better, if that is even possible! We have two somewhat picky teenaged daughters- one had the strip steak and the other a roasted chicken dish. An order of unbelievable mashed potatoes on the side! I had the salmon and my husband had another beautiful... More

Just enjoyed a late afternoon brunch at Waterman Grille with a group of friends. Diverse menu, and everything was delicious, including the drinks. Our server Peter was fantastic; attentive, yet he allowed us to linger and enjoy each other's company. All in all, a wonderful experience, and we will return!

Perfection. Atmosphere is fabulous. Food is excellent. Service is attentive. The Waterman is a vibrant culinary experience. Brick texture, outside patio on the Seekonk River.... a welcoming ambiance... great for friends and family to enjoy a casual meal in a relaxed environment.

I have mixed feelings about my experience at the Waterman Grille. My husband and I arrived late one Wednesday night, and the restaurant was nearly empty (it was almost closing time). It had a nice cosy feel though, and they were offering a prix-fixe menu that looked great, so we decided to give it a try. My soup and salmon... More

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious and inventive fare, and attentive waitstaff. I love that they prepare their dishes with local ingredients. We sat at one of Paul's tables and he was so personable and engaging! Although it was very busy, he gave us the personal touch that really made the experience that much more enjoyable.

Thank kristecn
