Waters Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Great first time experience! Excellent service paired with fantastic food. Start with oysters and work your way towards perfectly cooked crab cakes or salmon. Moderately priced wine options round out the ensemble. We didn't have time or room for dessert so we'll try that during another visit.
Thank you for a wonderful anniversary dinner. The staff was amazing, the food outstanding and we were greeted by Chef Bonnell within 10 minutes of being seated. When a Chef stops from table to table to introduce himself and thank you for dining, I'm already impressed before I order.
The food backs up the first impression!
We were celebrating our anniversary and everything about the evening was so special. We were warmly greeted, and given seating options. The menu was full of interesting choices. The crab cakes were so delicious and we enjoyed our cocktails and dessert. Jon Bonnel knows how to set an ambience and create a unique dining experience that is more than just a meal.
Our first visit to new downtown Fort Worth location. We like the new location better! Beautiful dining room. Bright north-facing windows, no glaring sun. Splendid service. My husband's oyster poorboy and my lobster avocado salad were delicious. Waters is one of our favorites!
This was our first time at the new location (we had dined several times at the original location). My wife had the halibut and I had a monkfish that was the special for the night. Both were flawlessly prepared. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Waters will continue to be our "go-to" when we are in the mood for a great seafood dinner.
Very disappointing. The waiter was more Applebees than upscale dining. Also, She didn't tell my wife that the croutons were gluten-free until after she avoided them and had eaten her salad.
However, gluten-free is a strength of the food choices. Gumbo is a light roux. Lots of sausage but I didn't like it much.
Waters Bonnell, previously located on Crockett Street, was not a restaurant we enjoyed; however, with the move to this lovely space it seems the entire experience has been revamped - food, service, atmosphere - all now superb. Our choices included gumbo, oysters texasfella, scallops, linguine with shrimp and scallops and a steak - all were delicious. The wine list is fairly priced and has good choices. Our waitress was efficient and attentive without being hovering. We dined indoors but there is a lovely outdoor area as well. All in all, we are anxious to return to Waters and highly recommend it.
Glad to have eaten at the precious location off 7th st. This new location seemed smaller. I felt like simething is missing but can't quite figure it out. The staff were attentive and apologized for having us wait for the table. Food was impeccable, drinks were delish and dessert was authentic. Overall worth the time and money.
Staff are impeccably accommodating, polite, knowledgable on the menu. I sat at the bar on my own and was tended to very well. It was early (6pm) so the place was only just filling up but had a lively bistro vibe. Scallops - perfectly cooked - delicate and sweet. Oysters - very fresh, 1st water still present in the shell (so hard to find people who shuck properly) so top marks there. Lobster Mac n Cheese - fantastic - huge chunks of lobster and a light but flavoursome cheese sauce on conchiglie (shells) pasta. Can't fault the meal or the venue - only the price. Four oysters, Scallops, Mac n Cheese, 1 glass of house Sauvignon Blanc (their own - I recommend it) +tip came to ~$100
As always, Waters is great. My wife and I have been coming to Waters since they were at the previous location. We have been to the new location a few times since. Great service from Scott. We got the dirty dozen order of oysters. We shared the gumbo and goat cheese salad. My wife got the special which was bacon wrapped scallops. I ordered the crab cakes. As always, everything was excellent.
This is a great place for special occasions! It's upscale, in a great location, with incredible food options! The customer service is awesome! This was my second visit, and Jason, the waiter remembered us from 4 months prior, and remembered what we ordered! We had the shrimp appetizers and grouper entree. Last time we had the halibut. All options are delicious! You'll want to go back. Love this place!
Chef Bonell and his cooking staff know their stuff. Excellent menu options. Not eighteen different ways to cook white fish. Check out the menu on line and you will understand what I mean! Serving staff was attentive, professional, and fun. Expensive but the food and service make it worth it. I am not sure when restaurants became louder the elementary school cafeteria or when the proper attire went from coat and tie to shorts and sandals. Decor has a nautical theme including sea shell covering the columns.
