We had a lot to celebrate this Valentine's Day and I'm so happy that Water Grill was a part of it. Our server, Taylor made the evening super special and for us and for that, I sincerely thank
him. The service, location, and food is all top-notch and we couldn't have been happier. While Los Angeles does enjoy a 100-mile coast, not all of it's restaurants have it all like Water Grill does. We started off with a glass of lovely Sancerre
Sauvignon Blanc ($17). The bread itself is warm and addicting. The cheesy garlic is my favorite. Even the butter has a unique taste. Be warned: you'll want to overindulge on the bread, but don't! Rich, creamy New England Clam Chowder ($11) with
tons of clams is A+. Wedge Salad ($11) with Applewood Smoked Bacon and Blue Cheese followed and was one of the best we've had. Both were delicious and filling. For dinner we had the New England Lobster Roll ($27) Connecticut style, tossed in hot
butter. Big chunks of fat, juicy lobster were stuffed into a soft roll and were paired with crispy fries. Farmed Raised Loch Duart Scottish Salmon ($35) was absolutely out of this world! Flaky tender salmon was accompanied
by "toy box" squash cipollini onions, and smoked bacon. We were so full that we, yes "we" passed on dessert. But don't worry, we made up for it at Gladstone's Donuts the next day! Water Grill 1401 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica. (310) 394-5669.
