I had the extreme pleasure of dining at the Water Grill in Los Angeles on company business while in Southern California this past week. The ambiance, service and food were absolutely fantastic. The best way to describe this restaurant is to refer to their website which offers the following definition and industry reviews.
Water Grill is the ultimate example of fine dining in Los Angeles. Hailed as “the best seafood in Southern California” by the internationally recognized Zagat Guide, Water Grill has consistently offered dazzling fish preparations of superior quality and freshness.
“…Each element on the plate is a standout, yet together the flavors are married to perfection in a harmonious presentation inspired by nature.”StarChefs“
Inspired, adventurous and inventive sums up the Water Grill. Praised by Zagat Survey as Los Angeles’ top seafood restaurant since the day it opened, Water Grill has become an institution of excellence. In service, food, presentation, décor, ambiance and overall guest experience, this Downtown favorite exceeds all expectations.” Downtown LA Dining Magazine
“Warm deco stylings inspire the gleaming luxe raw bar, with intimate booths tucked on one side and a lively, airy dining room on the other accented with auburn wood, marble columns, white tablecloths, cushioned chairs and booths. Theatergoers, investment bankers and downtown-based tourists comprise the lively crowd.” City Search, LA
My dinner started with Wild Fijian Big Eye Tuna Tartar with thai red chili and green papaya
The entree was a delicious Wild Columbia River Sturgeon pan roasted with horseradish cream, toasted walnuts, and roasted beet risotto.
To top it all off, desert was a divine Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brulee’ with Orange Cognac Caramel, Mandarin Orange Sorbet and Cardamom Churros.
To drink we had a great Frogs Leap Chardonay from Napa and at desert I tried a Yalumba Tawny Port from Australia that was very nice.
