The oysters are always the best in the city. The Salmon is extraordinary. An IMPROVEMENT on the famous Troisgros brothers preparation, Chef Bonnell out performs anyone selling cooked salmon today. The whole menu is worth having, but the Salmon stands alone as a truly world...class dishMore

My wife and i were visiting the Fort Worth Stockyards and found a great restaurant downtown Fort Worth. From the start the bar was excellent and my wife thought that was the best Expresso Martini that she ever had. I had the Fresh Oysters flown...in that day. I had the salmon while she had the speciality crab cakes which were great and shared the lobster mac and cheese which we took to our hotel and later wished we had ordered the large one because it was super. The staff was attentive and our waitress was excellent. We will be definitely back when we are in town.More

This place is a little fancier than our typical date night restaurants but worth it for a rare treat. We had the crab cake appetizer, 5 oysters, the duck confit, and the chicken breast with grits. It was all excellent. With a coke and a...glass of wine....$130 before tip, so keep that in mind.More

We gave bigger expectations about this restaurant. Didn't happen. It was an above average experience, but no reaching the very good level. No complaints about the service, and the food, but it is nothing out of the ordinary.

My wife and I visited for lunch on Valentine's day. She had seafood gumbo and seared salmon. I have a petite filet mignon. Both meals were served with haricots verts and dirty rice. Everything was absolutely delicious. Our server was cordial, efficient and helpful. All...in all, this was a very memorable experience. Highly recommend Waters for any special occasion.More

Upscale dining without the stuffiness of other high end restaurants. Started with the dirty dozen and enjoyed each and every selection. Paired it with a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Highly recommend the crab cakes and the halibut. Everything beautifully prepared and presented. Enjoyed every...bite. A shared creme brûlée was a wonderful finish to a very memorable meal. The icing on the cake was the impeccable warm and genuine service.More

Love this place!!! Happy hour has half price dirty dozen oysters that are hand selected daily. They are fresh, cold, and velvety. The crawfish roll is also amazing!! Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Go 4-6 7 days a week!!!!

I've been several times. They have incredible food. I haven't branched out from their seafood offerings, so I can't comment on their other food, but the seafood there is the best I've had. The fish is cooked perfectly. Lunch portions are generous.

Lovely restaurant with airy feeling. Seems like you pay more for ambiance than for what you actually consume.

Not surprisingly, the specialty of Waters is fish/seafood and generally they execute very well. The lump crab salad with avocado was the best appetizer our group had with the roasted corn and cheddar hush puppies a close second. We enjoyed the halibut entree (a decent...sized portion and perfectly cooked) but at $44 was somewhat overpriced. The Cajun Sea Scallops were also excellent. Our server (Jacob) was excellent, the cocktails okay and the dining room just a little "cold" with respect to design and atmosphere.More
