I love coming to Water Grill. They have a great seafood and alcohol selection. It's also an awesome place to just kick back and enjoy the view. Service is very good also. Definitely worth coming back again soon.

What makes this place stand out from the others is the service. It was impeccable and from the second you walk in the door you notice it. They pay attention to their customers and make you feel like they really are happy to serve you. The location, the food and amazing service what more could you ask for. I will definitely be back. We went there to celebrate my wife's birthday so we arrived around 8 pm, 30 minutes earlier than our reserved time. The hostess recommended we hang around the bar until it was time so we did. At around 8:20 pm one of the hostesses came and found us and pretty much let us pick the location of our table even though the restaurant was full. We selected a table close to a window and unfortunately it was a little too cold. I handed my wife my jacket and a few seconds later the manager shows up with 2 blankets for us to use which was nice. A few seconds after that one of the hostesses came over to switch out the napkins from white to black. Its the first time that has ever happened to us in this country and its one of those things that doesn't really seem like a big deal but it does make a difference. Our waitress was the icing on the cake. when I made the reservations they asked for any special details and I said that it was my wife's birthday. When the check came we noticed that the waitress took $9.00 off our bill she also brought us a cake. AWESOME!!!!!! We will be back again and I have already told all my friends about it. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. oh yah the food was great too!!!!!

Excellent. Nice views and fantastic atmosphere. I ordered the seafood platter on ice. Lobster, shrimp, oysters, clams, mussels, and an assortment of sauces. Everything was amazing and perfect for the beach vibe. Great choice if you're ever in Santa Monica!

I stopped in for lunch and sat at the bar. I ordered the lobster roll, an Allagash, and key lime pie. The lobster roll and key lime pie were both very good, but not the best I've had. I've had better lobster rolls at Connie & Ted's and Son of a Gun. Definitely one of the better dining options in Santa Monica and highly recommend this place if you love seafood and a beautiful beach front setting.

If you love seafood, this would be the place to try. The combo raw appetizer was incredible. High quality seafood and a lovely atmosphere with large open windows looking onto the beach.
