Love this place! Waterstreet's amazing Ambiance is complemented by outstandingly professional service. The food is simple yet thoughtfully unique. Make reservations on the weekend, this place gets busy!

Olympia seems to continuously struggle with producing a good meal. When this restaurant first opened it was great. No more. I came here with 6 friends to celebrate a birthday and the food was horrible, but, the service was great. We had to send food and drinks back to the kitchen with almost every persons order. We were all disappointed.

We shared appetizers & had some wine for Happy Hour. Prices were okay, but not overly thrilled with appetizers - would not recommend the calamari - simply boring and not very flavorful. Might try it again, but not rushing to return.

We had an enjoyable evening with friendly service, great food, and very pleasant atmosphere. I experimented with the curried vegetables and was amazed at how good they were. A must visit restaurant in Olympia.

Love the Ambiance at this restaurant. The service was not what was expected. Our group of 8 for dinner waited over an hour for our entrees to arrive with no apology, explanation or word from the server or chef. Very surprising. While the food was good, not great for the price, it wasn't worth the overwhelming wait time.

We had dinner at the Waterstreet Café yesterday. Everything was excellent -- from the friendly greeting at the door, to the service, and the food. The restaurant is not inexpensive, but it's appropriate for the experience. The only negative is that the menu is rather small. For example, salmon was the only seafood on the menu. However, the entrée choices... More

I had the Korean BBQ Sea Bass and it was amazing. Honestly have never had a bad meal here. The Hot and Dirty Martini special of the night complemented the meal perfectly. We had a table at the front window and both the server and server assistant were very attentive. Others at the table had Salmon, Stonington Red Shrimp PHO,... More

I searched for a quiet place in Olympia to meet a friend who I hadn't seen in several years. I was really hoping to find a quiet place so we could catch up and one where we wouldn't be rushed. I found it at Waterstreet. The restaurant was not crowded on a Monday evening and parking was plentiful. The waitress... More

I love Waterstreet. The food is always spectacular, the service is always friendly. They do change their menu up which can be a bummer once you have found your favorite dish, but they always replace it with something awesome.
