Seriously, I don't know what has happened to this place. They used to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area and we dined here constantly for the past 2+ years. However, the last 3 times we have dined here over the past 9 months the food and service have both declined immensely. I didn't see a lot of... More

For some strange reason I have not been here in years. I don't know why as it is a great place with wonderful food and nice servers.

We stopped in on an early Saturday evening, and the restaurant was nearly empty. We were given the choice of indoor or outdoor seating and chose outdoor, which is covered (a nice feature). After 15 minutes of pouring over their over-priced menu, out waitress still did not come back to take our order. We even went inside the restaurant to... More

Came here for a celebratory dinner. The atmosphere was inviting and cozy. We picked a wine that our server said there was a limited number of bottles of and it had won awards! The table enjoyed the pomme frites and the special Malbec. Everyone enjoyed their dinners that we didn't speak much while consuming! Desserts some of us partook in... More

My cousin had his wedding reception/dinner at the Waterstreet Cafe yesterday. The food and service was excellent. There were 60 people in our party and everything went flawlessly. The food was to die for! The appetizers were excellent as was dinner. The service never missed a beat. The banquet room easily fit the large group of us with room for... More

First time visit here and have to say impressive. Had a $10 for $2 coupon from restaurant.com. My dining partner and I shared an appetizer consisting of a selection of meats, olives and crusty bread. The wine selection was almost too overwhelming but I loved the one I picked. The service was attentive without being overbearing (and no grief over... More

Went here for my 5th year wedding anniversary with my husband and we really enjoyed it. It was a gorgeous summer evening and we got to sit out on the patio and it was absolutely lovely. I had the strip loin and my husband had the burger. Both were fabulous. From prior reviews it seems that they were known for... More

We came in to town kind of late and were directed to this restaurant. They were almost completely full except for a table in the bar area but we had our two teenage grandchildren with us. The manager suggested four of us use that table and seated the grandchildren nearby at the only other empty seating. Besides the wonderful service,... More

This place reminded me of a restaurant that would be in napa valley. Really nice menu, amazing drinks, great service. Somehow this place has a sophisticated yet relaxed vibe. Loved it.
