My fiancée and I enjoyed a great dinner here. The place is small, so when young got large tables of people drinking bottles of wine, it can be quite loud. For as small as the place was, I was surprised by the slow service. Every...More

Awesome lunch place. Great service. Nice luncheon menu. Will definitely return. A little on the pricey side, but worth it.

Set inside a converted home on the riverfront, the atmosphere makes for a special evening of fine dining. The staff are good. The food is very well prepared. We consider Waterstreet a special occasion given that prices are on the high side (but worth it)...More

I probably have eaten here over 200 times, and have never had a bad meal. The quality of the food, the preparation, exquisite blending of flavors and tastes are remarkable to find in an out-of the-way unassuming place, Madisonville, LA. I believe their seafood gumbo...More

Went for dinner on a Saturday night. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The marinated crab claw appetizer special was beyond belief. I had the grouper special with lump crabmeat and a delicious sauce. My partner had the soft shell crab special....More

We have made reservations the times we have been to WaterStreet Bistro. It is not a very large dinning room, but has some outside seating. I would recommend reservations.
