Food was really good. Oysters were very fresh! (Would prefer smaller size but beyond good ‘none the less’)
I did the pre-fix menu, Tuna Tar Tar, portion was small but very fresh, we also got the crab cake it was by far the best appetizer! We also got the eggplant rollatini it was good but not the best app. The scallops with the polenta were great as well.
Main course: Sole was light and fresh! Branzino was crispy and delicious! Someone else had the suppa De peixe - it was all finished, nothing left.
The dessert was the only area we thought could have been better.
The Creme brûlée was good, the “sandwich” wasn’t good. Choc with Raspberry was just ok.

We will definitely be back!!! Lived it!
If they had a better pastry chef it would be a top 20 restaurant in NJ!

I loved the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. We loved the NY strip steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable

The service was impeccable. The cocktails were expensive but delicious. The food was only good for the prices. The venue/ambiance is outdated.

Relaxing dinner overlooking the lake, with very attentive service. The bread basket had a nice variety to start us off. We then shared a very fresh burrata and tomato salad. Our mains included a delicious veal milanese which was served bone-in and a chicken breast with a tasty sauce. The portions were large and we couldn't finish, so we took our leftovers home for lunch. We finished with a glass of port. Great date night!

My sister retired this week after 38 years of service to the Veterans Medical Center as a Social Worker. Of course, we decided to celebrate at Water & Wine. Food and service were outstanding, of course! The lovely Georgia was our server and did a great job meeting our needs for the evening. Our special thanks to Georgia and of course James for making it a perfect celebration!

Maybe we caught it on a bad night but it Just was not what we expected for our special occasion for a restaurant with the prices and reputation that water and wine has. They did have Blowfish tail for an app which was outstanding but that was really it. Everything else was good to just ok. Waiter got lost a lot. Sorry but we Just expected more.

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.

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!
