Amazing experience! From the service, ambiance, and made-to-order starters, drinks, entrees, and dessert, we had a wonderful experience. Our table was appropriately distanced from the other guests, so my party of 4 felt safe and enjoyed our meals. For the drinks, the flight, the French 75, the Dope punch were all delicious! The French toast and spinach dip were fresh and delicious as well for our appetizers. All entrees were presented beautifully, fresh, and scrumptiously made with love! However, the sweet potato bread pudding was surprisingly the winner! We were wowed! Looking forward to returning to Water for Chocolate.

Dined the evening of New Year’s Day. ALL AROUND INCREDIBLE. If you’re into contemporary international fusion cuisine, this is it. The restaurant is small but who cares- they social distance and the ambience and vibe is what sets it off. Greeted and seated immediately, we were 20 mins early for our 7pm reservation- no problem. We arrived early to allow time to find street parking so make sure you plan for that.

The gentleman taking care of us was exceptional. Knew the menu and preparation like the back of his hand.

The menu was prefix but they offered many options. Keep in mind that there may be add-ons to the prefix cost so if you want a little extra, build it into your bill.

Plan for a 5 course meal. They pace you for each offering so that you can fully enjoy each course. We were the last ones in the restaurant and didn’t even feel rushed to leave. Our server even offered us another cocktail, we declined, but that goes to show that they care about their customers experience.

Compliments to the chef, he went out of his way to thank us for coming and wished us a HNY!

The photos speak for itself. We will definitely be back soon.

Small, intimate space, open for brunch and dinner only (closes in between). We couldn't get a reservation for brunch before 1:30, and we were pressed to leave at about 3:00 pm. Food and beverage were very good.

Incredible menu. Four of us ordered different things. Eclectic and delicious. Service was very slow. One meal needed to be redone they told us as the others came out. Not sure why but that also caused a delay. Still we enjoyed conversation while we waited but we don’t always have that amount of time.

This dinning experience was one of a kind. To sum it up in one word, I would say "SPECTACULAR". The establishment was intimate, the server greeted us at the door using our names as if we were expected. We were treated like celebrities. The food was incredible. From the flavor combinations to the presentation the chef CRUSHED it. In just one visit, this restaurant has won my loyal patronage and has claimed the number one spot on my list. 🖤

Darn, I just wrote a long review but when I went to continue I hit the button that said that I WOULD recommend to a friend. I would definitely NOT recommend.
Food was fresh but just a mish-mash of tastes that left everything tasting the same - not great. Both mine and my sons were not good. Do not recommend the crab quesadillas or the shrimp with grits appetizer or something he had with eggs and piled high with boring suateed vegetables. Sorry guys!

Love this place - Will definitely be back! All 8 courses (2 people) were amazing! Although the rib-eye steak option was my least favorite. The quality of the steak didn’t match the level of all the other food. Have already recommended to family & friends.

First time trying this establishment and I love it!!! We reserved the dinner experience for a date and it was phenomenal. Sean, Executive Chef, and Caleb, our Waiter are a dynamic duo. I felt like I was right at home with 5 star cuisine. I’ve raved about this place to everyone I know and will be back very very soon! If you’ve never been, you’ve got to go!
