The food and service at this restaurant is second to none. I have brought colleagues from out of the country to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. The staff is attentive and the menu offers an assortment of meals that is pleasing to all palettes, whether you prefer fish, meat, or a vegetarian entrée.

First this was the first time here. Our server Raymond was just outstanding. He made the dining experience at Water and Wine outstanding. Our appetizers were the oysters and the ahi tuna. The oysters were fresh and extremely tasty. I had the steak and was a little disappointed. It was a little under cooked but the outside which was cured was extremely tasty. The selection of wines and cocktails were also quite good. We will return for another evening.

Water & Wine has been one of my favorites in the Watchung area for many years. It’s always been top notch!

We have been here before and they never disappoint. It was by birthday, another 39th, and I thoroughly enjoyed my manhattans (those black cherries are the best), appetizer, dinner and my dessert with a candle. My favorite guy by my side, a great night. Thanks for making it special.

World-Class dining in Watchung NJ. This restuart has been in Watchung for many years, I consider it a historic landmark and the food & wine have never been better. The wine is all top-notch nothing like store-bought. Relax and stay a while you won't be let down.

I have been fortunate enough to have water and wine be a part of my life for over a 2 decades. I cannot stress enough how it has imparterd upon me the qualities I should expect from any restaurant of fine dining.

This is our favorite restaurant and we always look forward to dining here when we can. It was my wife’s birthday, but we enjoy eating here for any occasion.
Food is always excellent as is the service and ambiance. Plus it is very convenient for us as we live right up the street from it.
Beautiful setting on Watchung Lake and a REAL GEM!

I have recommended this restaurant to many people because it is really perfect. I don't know how many times we have eaten here over the years. I know I have celebrated my birthday here for many years, and I have never been disappointed. We eat out every week and have become very fussy with the quality of food and service. This place never disappoints!! This evening we had Carmen meeting our needs but we have enjoyed the service of many fine servers over the years and never have we been disappointed. James is wonderful and is always attentive to all of our needs(love him). I can say we have NEVER had a problem or complaint during the years we have visited here, and that is a tribute to the restaurant's quality of food and service!

Water and Wine is my favorite place to dine for lunch and dinner! And yet, for a special occasion, like my friend's birthday, it is even more special....the food, the wine, Rita and James! Who could ask for anything more!

We went to Water and Wine early (4:30pm) Sunday afternoon. The staff and restaurant was responsive and fully ready to provide the outstanding service as if we were there at prime time. Our server Adam was knowledgeable and friendly which made the experience even better. Food was prepared perfectly and sauces were spot on. Cocktails were prepared and presented properly even down to the Luxardo cherries in my Manhattan. Good job as always.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We got there and were told that we had a window table but we could wait at the bar for our friends. We did that and when we went to dining room, there was an open table by the window but we were seated in back. When I asked about the table, I was told that I could not have the window table but that I could see the lake from the table I was seated at. Then the waiter was late waiting on us. Did not do well with recommendations and was not really attentive during the meal. He told us we could have separate checks and then produced one check at the end of the meal which took time to split it up and give it back to us. Food was ok, ambience by the lake was nice. Bartender in the bar was great and serves a nice drink! Would not rush back....

Our reservation was outstanding. Arrived early and had a drink at the bar with the nicest bartender. Then at time of reservation, was seating at a great location near the windows. The waiter was great, explained everything. Didn't rush us which was great. We had appetizers, a great tasting meal and dessert. We had such a terrific experience. This was our second time there and it will not be our last. Will bring more guests with every reservation. All I all it was a fantastic evening.

Dined here for a friend’s birthday. It’s a great spot for a special occasion as the setting is picturesque and the menu is extensive. Service is impeccable- our server Raymond was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Really enjoyed the Cajun calamari appetizer. People in our party had the halibut, scallops, pork chop and short rib, and everyone said their meal was fantastic. Portion sizes are generous. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
