The wait was extremely long and it took forever to have a hostess even talk to us BUT luckily dinner turned out great as we were able to snag seats at the bar. Rick, the bartender/server, was amazing! He was full of energy, personable, and...made the evening special. The lobster ravioli was AMAZING. You will not be disappointed. The steak burger was slightly overcooked and for sushi, I would suggest ordering 2 rolls to fill you up. The bread pudding was also delicious!More

The restaurant is a lovely fine dining establishment and the view is beautiful. The Waite Staff was on the slower paced side but friendly & courteous. The menu was extremely limited even for Pandemic conditions.. our meals were nicely plated but lacked being exceptional in...taste. The Appetizer, Cheese Board , we chose to share was probably the highlight of the meal. Not rushing back unfortunately.More

The service and view are the only good things about dinner at the Watercolour. The food is way overpriced for the quality. I ordered a filet and it was overcooked and warm at best for $54. My wife had black cod oscar style with lobster...risotto - the fish was cooked well, but the risotto was like glue. For a Marriott this was poor - the only thing that made the dinner was service from Ricardo and a great viewMore

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. Not sure how this steakhouse can even have bad reviews. The food was outstanding, everything was so fresh and the service was phenomenal. Decided to try this restaurant for dinner since I was staying at the Marriott and...after along day at the beach; it was just so convenient to go downstairs for dinner. We got seated quickly although we had no reservations, the entire staff was so helpful. Our waiter was so helpful, she went over all the specials and was extremely helpful whenever I wasn’t sure about a certain dish. From start to finish, from the sushi to the scallops , to the risotto to dessert .. everything was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be coming back to try the rest of the menu.More

We had dinner here in the midst of the Covid19 national shutdown. You would never know from the staff. They were wonderful. Monica was a great waitress. My wife and I both bought the same dish so I can only tell you how good that...was. The great news is it was delicious. We both got the Sea Grill. Lobster tail, scallops, shrimp and the best crab cake we've ever eaten. We also had the desert creme brulee which was awesome.More

You can't miss the opportunity to eat here! Our waitress Tori was an absolute doll and we never had to ask for anything because she was always 2 steps ahead us! The bartender Rick was the funniest bartender ever and made the best muddled blueberry...martini in the world! and the food???? as I said, the best on the beach! Add a bottle of Caymus and you cant beat Watercolours!More

Had a reservation and got there in time, was told to wait as they were running behind, but there were numerous empty tables, and after 10 minutes they gave us one of them. Ordered food and drinks and was told that they would serve some...bread which they did 30 minutes late and at same time as they served main course. Our water glasses were not refilled and it seemed like the waiters were running around without any kind of organization. Food was fine, but I expect more than just food. If this restaurant wasn’t located in a hotel and therefore gets “easy/free” customers it would fold within a month. So we won’t be back.More

Ricardo is an absolutely amazing server and hospitality exudes from him. The food was exceptional from the short rib braised ravioli's the grouper and fantastic Caesar salad all terrific. The menu is wildly ecclectic and yummy options. It is a must go to restaurant when...visiting Sand KeyMore
