My wife and I hosted a couple coming in from Colorado and settled on Walter's for our meal. We were SO glad we did. The experience was very relaxed and comfortable. We started in the bar where we had very good drinks (see Pomegranate drink and German pilsner). The space was comfortable and not too crowded so we could relax... More

Took a colleague to lunch and was truly disappointed. The lobster salad was boring - 6 pieces of lobster laid around greens with a very tasetless lemon dressing. My colleague got the BLT and didn't even finish it. Very cold, atmosphere found in arestaurants in hotels.. Service was Ok but not very personal or special. For the money, this is... More

this is the first time I have felt compelled to submit a review a restaurant. I frequently travel solo, so I look for a place with an inviting bar, Walters fit the bill and I am happy to report that the service and food were also excellent. My bartender, Guy, kindly recommended the duck, and it was phenomenal! Possibly the... More

We has a group of 5 of us eat at Walter's and everyone truly enjoyed our meal. We shared the Calamari which was fantastic. We had everything from beef to seafood and all of it was truly fantastic. We all said we would eat there again if we had a chance.

We had lunch at Walter's yesterday. This time there were three women, who wanted to catch up on each other's lives. We sat in the super-comfortable chairs at tables on the bar side of the restaurant, had a perfectly marvelous lunch (with a couple of glasses of wine) and talked until we felt guilty about keeping the waitress so late....

Came here for Valentines dinner with friends and we had a wonderful experience. We had salad and calamari for appetizer and braised short ribs, shrimp, duck and salmon for main dish and everything was excellent! Would come back for to their short ribs again it was the best tasting dish on their menu

This is a five star restaurant for lunch. Cobb salad, tiramisu with a double expresso - can not go wrong. Everything is great. Excellent for a business lunch as is very busy after 11:45 am for lunch till 1:15 pm. It is a keeper.

I made a reservation for a party of 8 for an after business meeting dinner at the recommendation of my client. The ambiance, service and food was excellent. This place by far surpassed my expectations. The calamari is a must have for an appetizer. The brussel sprout as well as the beet salad was perfectly prepared. For mains we had... More

This is a great place! The food is superb! I did think that the salmon entree would be a trifle bit small for most patrons but for it was fine for me. The flavor was superb! Great ambiance! Parking tickets can be validated during the day and there is valet parking after 5:00 pm. Excellent service!
