Contemporary Canadian
The Watermark Taphouse and Grille has a uniquely Canadian take on California Fusion cuisine.

Located just eight minutes west of Burlington, in the charming village of Waterdown. The Watermark offers an interesting variety of dishes prepared daily with the freshest of ingredients. New York Steak, Prime Rib, Pasta, Seafood, Wings, Burgers and Entree salads.
Traditional offerings of Pulled pork and Brisket smoked daily in the Watermark's very own wood smoker located on premises.

The interior is an amazing blend of textures and colours. Cozy booths, designed to offer you the privacy you need for an intimate dinner for two or a gathering of friends.

As the warm weather beckons us all to enjoy the outdoors, so does The Watermark's Patio, an ideal outdoor setting to get together for great food, a cold beer or a shared bottle of wine.

Enjoyed the privacy and quiet at the table in the Watermark which allowed my friends and I to converse in an atmosphere where we could ear each other perfectly well but were not disturbing other diners. The food portions were large.

Our party of four was seated at a leather booth, which provided both privacy and a quiet environment for talking and dining. All of our dishes were delicious. Our waitress Kim was attentive and fun, and added to our enjoyment of the evening.

Fantastic evening! We were warmly received at the reception desk and taken to a terrific booth. Our server told us to take our time with drinks and appetizers. Everyone at our table enjoyed a different meal: brisket, pulled pork, fish and chips and vegetarian pasta. Their menu met all of our dietary concerns!! We ended our evening with coffee and conversation. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a get-together with friends.

1st visit to Watermark. Everyone at our table was very happy with their meal and would like to go back again. The only complaint would be that our salad plates were not removed before the meals came so there was some awkward shuffling to get the plates down.

Everything was great, from the seating I requested, to the Raptors and NHL Skills Competition on the TV. The Caesar and Seafood Linguini was top notch! Will be back for sure.

No complaints. The service, food and atmosphere were fantastic. Very glad you were open as it is harder to find restaurants open for dinner on Christmas Eve in Waterdown.

The chicken parm was not good. It was not breast. Bone in? I should have sent back but it was late so I didn't bother.

First time for us at the Watermark restaurant. We had reservations for 6PM and our table was ready when we got there. We received prompt service and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. Our food was delivered in good time and was enjoyed by all in our party of four. We will certainly go back.

The Watermark has a very calm, warm and private atmosphere. I love coming here for a date night, or to catch up with an old friend. The first time I went here when they opened the food and service were very subpar, but I am very glad to have given it another go. I have been numerous times since and they have never again disappointed. The improvement, commitment to service, and delicious food are all reasons to stop by for a meal! Give them a first chance or a second chance, it is well worth it!

Great food with a few twists as compared to other restaurants, great service and great value. THe only hiccup was they needed to reload keg of beer and did not come to table to say there is a delay.

The food was tasty however 2 entrees lacked a good amount of meat which was disappointing. Service was great. The ambiance was great. Led Zeppelin was playing on the stereo which was not suitable dinner music - plus it was too loud for dinner conversation.

Made reservations online. Table was ready when we arrived and we were seated right away. Our server was nice and fun. Food was as expected. Only suggestion would be to offer 1/2 orders. I like a restaurant where I can have an appetizer and half entree order.

We went for a Sunday evening meal, sat in a booth, ordered drinks or server was attentive and quickly corrected an issue we had with the watermark cesar. Our meals were ok. We would go again.

Wide variety of menu choices suitable for a family night out with a celiac family member and a vegan family member. Food overall was good but the fries were very salty. Our waitress was good with recommendations and she was attentive throughout our meal. Our seating area was a private and quiet booth that comfortably sat 6 people.

The food was fantastic and, while the server was very friendly and courteous, I believe he had too many tables: I ordered a drink when my meal came out but did not get it until after I was finished and ready to leave.
