Dinner on the lake

Good food, but seems as if the prices are high because it is a summer resturant in a resort area. It was quite noisy, but it was very crowed so that may be the reason. A lot of seafood but seems to be prepared with a lot of high calorie sauces. I noticed at the bar the bartenders were making... read more

Our group of three visited "The Watermark" recently for dinner and all of us were impressed with the service and the food. Now, on several occasions over the last 3 years, we have never been disappointed. We certainly will return.

Went with friends. Not a lot to choose from in a this area for nicer restaurants. The seating by the lake was nice. The food was mediocre. Salads were fresh. Ahi tuna was so over done that two of us sent it back when it came back it was better but not great. Another friend had the chicken and she... More

Food was acceptable but nothing to write home about.. Service was poor. We waited almost half an hour for menus and the drinks order to be taken. Once we ordered, we were rushed. Entrees came after two bites of the salad. Maybe it was just an off night,, but would not rush back. Never did trceive the birthday dessert that... More

The lovely female bartender (whose name I have forgotten) made me her signature drink. The food was yummy and while our server was a little over eager (and brought all of our food too quickly), the food and service were good.

We were so happy we tried the Watermark. We started with the smoked fish appetizer. It was delicious and more than enough for 4 people. My husband had the fish fry which was large and good. I had the organic fish with sliced brussel sprouts on top of rissoto. It was different and good. the service was wonderful and such... More

My husband and I went her for our first anniversary dinner and loved it! Each of our meals were phenomenal - I had the scallop special and he had the Landmark Royal. Our server was helpful but not overbearing. Her service was very efficient without being rushed - we had a bit of a time constraint as we were going... More

My wife and I ate here with another couple and had a nice dinner. We walked in without reservations on a Monday night and were able to immediately get a table outside. My friend ordered a cocktail that was not on the menu and the rest of us split a bottle of wine, We had the avocado spring rolls and... More

We ended up at the Watermark for dinner following golf at Peak'n Peak Resort. Well worth the drive for this attractive location right on the lake. This is one one of our favorites in the area and it did not disappoint. The bruschetta and spicy calamari were perfect for the four hungry golfer a that we had in attendance. Three... More

This is our go-to place off the Chautauqua Institution grounds. Sitting outside, seeing the lake, enjoying a good meal, good service is something all of us -- teens to seniors-- enjoy. Never wanted to send anything back.
