This restaurant is in high demand and for good reason.
We noticed that they had to turn many people away because of full capacity.

The service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is very inviting.

The menu offers something for all tastes. The dishes come beautifully presented. The ingredients are well sourced and you can taste the attention to detail that goes into making each dish. Portions are generous.

I would go back in a heartbeat and recommended it to anyone who is looking for an enjoyable dinner with the best quality ingredients in an inviting setting. I'm convinced this is the best restaurant that Leavenworth has to offer. You should reserve in advance!

Amazing food! Amazing ambiance! What a place, definitely a must eat stop while in Leavenworth. The menu items are curated from local sources and prepared with excellent parings of spices and herbs. Very succulent and tantalizing to the palette.

The vibe here is hip and trendy but not pretentious at all. It's a relaxing atmosphere. Another plus, you can actually have a conversation with your table mates. The place does an excellent job with acoustics and it sets up well for a very romantic evening.

The meatloaf is to die for and my wife's cod was cooked to perfection, her side of gnocchi was delicious, moist and packed with flavor, cooked perfectly.

It is expensive! With entrees starting in the low $30.00 range.

We joined another couple to celebrate a birthday over dinner and drinks. When we arrived is was VERY warm in the restaurant, almost uncomfortable. Thankfully the air conditioning must have kicked on and it cooled down some so we could order food. Our waiter was amazing and attentive to our needs. The restaurant offers very little privacy so hopefully you have good neighbors.
The food however, delicious! Seasoned and cooked to perfection.
I highly recommend the Watershed Cafe if you don't mind the prices.
End the night with the flourless chocolate cake, it won't disappoint!!

We live in Leavenworth. We have given this restaurant many chances to review their service and food above a POOR rating. Can't do it. There is no reason to spend good money at The Watershed when there are so many better restaurants (food, service, price) in Leavenworth. The choices are overpriced and certainly not memorable. You can't depend on finding the same dinner offering on a regular basis; we finally gave up. I hope the next owners (have been told the restaurant is for sale) will not be food snobs and arrogant as is now.

I ordered a kale Caesar for an appetizer and Ling Cod for an entree.
Unfortunately, I was given a dinner size salad, as well as my entree.
Both the salad and the Ling Cod were excellent.
***It would have been a lot nicer if starter salads were offered on the menu as opposed to all dinner salads.
