Birthday dinner was lovely but hot because it was over 90 degrees and the government doesn’t let us eat in yet! But I still enjoyed my day thanks to my attentive waiters

We went for our anniversary. They did forget to bring us out our anniversary dessert. But it was still excellent overall. Not going to be petty. All good.

Our waitress was fantastic as we had two children with disabilities and she was very kind and helpful. She met every request we had.
We have been to water and wine several times and we like it there very much. The food is great and the service is superior. We shall return.

One of the very best restaurants New Jersey has to offer. Generous portions, creative & innovative food offerings while also offering simple & classic menu items. The calamari is a most try as well as the garlic shrimp and the meatballs. The Garganelli Con Porcini is one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. All their steaks are cut and aged in house and you can taste the unbelievable quality with every bite. Don’t skip dessert at Water and Wine. The ice cream sandwich is incredible. James the manager makes everyone feel welcome and oversees his flawless service team. The new outdoor dining area is the most inviting outdoor space I’ve ever seen. This is a destination restaurant that everyone should try. You won’t regret it

The new outdoor dining venue (due to COVID-19 restrictions) was lovely with plantings and flowers. We felt safe and I felt like I was somewhere! The food was excellent as always. Service great and the staff was so appreciative. I look forward to dining here again in their new outdoor space.

Water and Wine did an amazing job of bringing the fine dining feel outdoors. Food and cocktails were just as good as they always are(which is REALLY good) and the waitress was super sweet.

Food was adequate but unexceptional, very over priced for the quality. They try to make up for it with large portions. Server made multiple mistakes from bringing wrong wine to not understanding entree orders to misunderstanding dessert order. And orders were all right off the menu, no substitutions or changes at all.

Service was excellent. Atmosphere was lovely with a view of Watchung Lake. I ordered my NY strip steak medium raw but unfortunately it was overcooked. Afterwards the 4 of us ordered a drink at the bar and sat on the couches in front of the beautiful fireplace.
