Tasty Fast Lunch in the Financial District – My girlfriend and I went here on our lunch break last Thursday. The food was surprisingly good and speedy. Some of the places on Stone St. are just Pub fare. She got the Lobster Tart and I got the Special of the Day grilled bbq scallops with some kind of pineapple salsa. Bottom line it was excellent and we got back to work on time. The service was slightly above average but the ambiance made up for that. We got to enjoy the beautiful day sitting outside on Stone St. We will be back and we plan to try the restaurant next door to Waterstone too, says opening soon.
oasis in the middle of the financial district – For a quick lunch the sandwiches, burgers, and salads are fine. For more exensive fare the bisque, seafood and pasta are great.
Great Fin'l District Venue – Waterstone Grill is one of the more attractive and comfortable restaurants in the Fin'l District south of Wall St. Whenever I've eaten there, the food has been tremendous and the specials are fantastic. I highly recommend any of the seafood dishes. As an after-work drinks place, the place is really cool with excellent bar food. The wait staff is courteous and efficient and the outdoor cafe out back on Stone St is worth the wait. I take colleagues from work or have friends meet me there whenever I can. There are times when there is a long wait at lunch so be safe and make a reservation.
Don't try delivery – Called in an order for delivery. Waited 45 minutes. Called to confirm. Waited another 20. Called to cancel. No explanation or apology given. The restaurant is less than 2 blocks from the office. Don't order by phone if you want your food and expect it in any timely way.
Embarrased by the mediocrity – I took some business guests to Waterstone and was embarrased by a very noisy place which served mediocre food. The waitress was nice and tried hard to please. Too bad she didn't cook the meal, as the "chef" overcooked my chicken to near-rubber consistency. All 5 of us were disappointed.
Yummy – Have gone to Waterstone three times and was never disappointed. I've eaten the mushroom risotto, caesar salad, lobster tart, soup and wraps. All excellent!
