Success! Thanks for posting your review of Water Grill. You’ve done the world some good today.

Great Seafood -- some problems with sustainability

Came here for dineLA with my husband and 2 friends. The fish were just excellent with excellent service as well. This was our first time eating here. I had the red fish which is a mild white fish. It was perfectly cooked; not over-cooked like so many restaurants would do. The fish served here for the most part, according to the waiter, is sustainable and caught for the most part without bycatch and pollution ... view more

Strengths and weaknesses

Everything we ordered was excellent. main course portions are very small for the price.The service was both professional and friendly. There was a big time gap between the salad course and the main course.\r Overall a pleasant experience. i would return.

Very tiny portions

Four of us went to Water Grill before the theater. The appetizer of fish was small. But the portions of halibut and swordfish were even more disappointingly small. But the dessert was almost not even there...the tiny carrot cake was like a little igloo... a tiny mound with a white topping. ""Where is the dessert????"" I asked.\r When I spoke to the maitre d', and with a smile he said,""I am sorry to hear that but en... view more

Hadn't been to WG for a year, and went for Dine LA on Wednesday.

I wish I could go to Water Grill all the time but it's too $ for me. I went for Dine LA on Wednesday and had an amazing time. Generous portions. Great fish. I had the Sturgeon, my friend the Organic Salmon. Our waiter (great service) let us know they will be serving $44 Dine LA menu all February! I'll be back.

What a fantastic place! I went to Water Grill with a friend for the first time about a week ago. Beatiful restaurant, great service, top-notch cuisine, and a great innovative wine list. The service was inpeccable, not only by our waiter, but also by the wine director Andrews. With great sophistication and knowledge he presented us with a fantastic winelist, including top producers from around the world. We decided to... view more

Just average.

I've heard nothing but amazing things about the Water Grill; it's supposed to have the best seafood in L.A. I grew up on the east coast, so I tend to be very picky about my seafood, and this just doesn't measure up to 'the best' of anything. When you walk in the restaurant the walls are covered with awards and Zagat ratings, and I really thought that might mean something, but apparently no. It's not even that the ... view more

Delicious, High Quality Cuisine, Good Service, Ambiance needs improvement

Went there last night for the first time to have Valentine's Day dinner. I had the 5 course menu and everything was spectacularly delicious. Lots of interesting combinations and assertive flavors that worked together seamlessly. The service was good but not what I expected for one of the 18 (only) restaurants in all of Los Angeles to receive a Michelin star. The most surprising aspect of all is the ... view more

Tasty, delicate food. Bad service :(

The food was wonderful, however the portions are very, very small. I am sure that they put a lot of time and money into each dish, however, the portions/price ratio was a little off. It's fairly overpriced for the amount of food that you get. I'm not asking for huge portions either, but I mean, one appetizer is about 2 bites. Nonetheless, the oysters are wonderful.\r The biggest issue for me was that the service was... view more
