Went to the Watermark with three other couples for a Saturday night dinner. We arrived early and enjoyed a drink in the bar area. The bar has a wide variety of beverages and plenty of different beers and ciders on tap. Our meals in the dinning area were very enjoyable, the menu has an Italian feel to it, but also... More

They took so long to serve the food and the main course was a size of a starter menu. Not impressive considering the price that you pay. I ordered a Paella, which was not a paella at all (looks more of a risotto & the flavours where just low-ave), my friend ordered a Seafood linguini (you can only see prawns,... More

I dropped into Watermark two evenings ago for a quick dinner. As it was a hot evening, we did not want anything too heavy to eat so opted for the small bites menu. Calamari with Italian slaw, Thai fish cakes, crispy chicken bites and a wood fired pizza did the trick and it was all delicious. Washed down with a... More

It's not often during the week to not be busy, so the option of a Waterfront meal with my favourite lady sounded like a good idea, so we decided Watermark was the go. It's holiday time here in Docklands, so the busy Corporates are a bit thin on the ground in the Restaurants alongside Victoria Harbour, so the usual "couple... More

We were happy to find a restaurant overlooking the docks on New Year's Eve. The service was friendly. But the food took too long toarrive. It was overpriced for the portion size. The taste was average. I don't mind that I've visited, but I don't know of I'd be rushing back any time soon.

A group of eight of us attended a booked lunch. I ordered Pizza - it was barely edible. A friend ordered salmon - it was raw inside and dangerous to eat. We waited approximately one hour for the meals except for the salmon which took 1hr 15 min to arrive (raw) The staff were inattentive and openly rude when approached.

Function platters were heavy on the oil. Frankfurter buns were just unattractive. The only redeeming feature is the hardworking staff and the view. Leave the food.

We had a group booking of 15 and apparently that was too much to handle as we had to have a set menu- in fact not only a set menu- but alternate service. Even then after counting the meals the cheaper meal was served twice for every salmon serve. Two course meal for $45 would have been acceptable elsewhere, but... More

I went to Watermark for a workmates retirement - so disappointed! The waitress spilled drinks all over us, and never cleaned it up properly which meant my phone was water-logged. The lamb racks came out raw....not pink, but raw. Sent them back, and they came back the same???! One of the chef's walked out that night which is obviously not... More
