Visited this place a few years ago. It is popular so a reservation is recommended. The food is just ok. The dishes seem overdone with sauces and unnecessary ingredients. They should keep it simple so you can taste the food. Drinks are good.

Great atmosphere; outside dining under cover preferred. I had some fancy fried shrimp while my friends had calamari and scallops which they said were very good.

Gave Waterfront another try, for a glass of wine and cup of soup towards the end of the evening. Service was disoriented, wait staff didn't know who had what tables and were confused. Both the soup of the day and bisque where just ok. Love...More
