    We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with family. The service was very attentive, food quality outstanding, and care for our grandchildren very personal and accommodating. We all had a wonderful time, and overall experience.

    Went here for a graduation celebration. Everyone loved the food and atmosphere and our waitress was fantastic. They even brought dessert with a candle in it and wished my son congrats. We also had someone in the party that has Celiac (no wheat/gluten) and they were able to modify a lot of the menu to give him options. And there was no reaction the next day, which means we put them as being knowledgable about food allergies and such!

    Water and Wine is a repeat offender for me. I’ve been coming for years and it never disappoints. It’s close to home, the food is always delicious and the service remains stellar. It’s my favorite restaurant to go with my honey, to go with friends and to go with my parents visiting from out of town.

    The restaurant ambience and our view was superb. However the customers on our neighboring table were very loud and noisy and using bad language with each other. Since I had my 10 yr old and my 70yr mom …I was very uncomfortable with the situation. The food was good. Truffle fries were bit tasteless and burnt. The main courses and desert was very good. The service was excellent… though the person serving the drinks poured so much in my martini glass that it overflowed and I literally had to take a few sips without picking up my glass so as to not spill more. Not very good ! But overall the dinner was enjoyable.
