Rita was a professional waiter. Very good at her job. The food was delicious with huge portions. My only complaint was that the restaurant seated a large party next to us when they had plenty of empty tables. They were very loud.

We love the atmosphere here, it's a gorgeous ambiance, and for the most part, the food is excellent. Comment #1: They need some vegetarian options, especially in appetizers. We dont eat meat or shellfish outside, and our only option was buratta. I have to say we were both disappointed with our salads. I had the Endive salad which had gorgonzola cheese and candied walnuts. As long as you had the cheese and walnuts it was delish, but when it ran out all you had was endive with no dressing. Pretty flat. My wife had the beet salad and it was boring. Needed something else besides and ocassional orange slice and roquefort. But, we both had the snapper on a bed of sauteed spinach which was excellent. The mushroom side dish was good, but not exceptional. The dessert of bread pudding with canoli cream was to die for. Service was friendly and excellent. Overall a fine experience for our anniversary, but couldve been better. We will definitely return.

Had a fantastic meal with my fiancé for our anniversary with Adam as our server. He made sure we were taken care of and was phenomenal. The food was amazing, the wine was great, and everything as a whole made our night wonderful.

Water and Wine has been a family favorite for many years. They go out of their way to make every meal special. For this reservation, I had made a mistake and said there would be six of us when there were seven. While we were having drinks at the bar, Water and Wine quietly sized up the situation and when we were escorted to the table, it was already set for seven. No embarrassed waiting while they rushed to add another setting. In addition to the excellent food and service, we were treated with a complimentary dessert for the anniversary couple and ice cream for the birthday boy. We had traveled from CT for this meal and my grandson came from Philadelphia where he is a student. The granddaughter is in NJ. We had a wonderful time.

Been wanting to try this for quite awhile but it's not in my general area. Finally got a chance by meeting a friend for dinner. It was fabulous! We are in the dining room - the service was impeccable and the food was perfect. We had specialty cocktails that were lovely and flavorful. I had the short rib pappardalle and my friend had the Dover sole - both were cooked to perfection. The wine list is large so we stuck to the house list. It is a bit pricey a best for special occasions rather than every day occasion There is a tavern section we didn't try that's a little more every day. Highly recommended.

The food was a bit disappointing. Steak was too salty, tuna tartar taste old, red snapper & chicken milanese had little to no taste. We went on a Wednesday night....maybe they had an off night?

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

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.
