Last evening we dined at the Waterworks restaurant. In short it was terrific from beginning to end. The restaurant is lovely. They have some tables in a glass enclosed room facing the river with a view of the boathouses. Others were in a main dining room that had a beautiful fountain/waterfall in the middle.

When we arrived we were told that our table would be ready in a few and we went to the bar. The bar is small but didn't feel cramped. People were eating at the bar and the food looked great.

For apps we ordered the grilled haloumi cheese which was terrific. The lollipop lambchops which were marinated and perfectly grilled. The crab cake app was very small but good. Another had the onion soup which was served with bread "log" stuffed with grilled cheese.

For an entree I had the sirloin with sauteed onions and exotic mushrooms, fabulous. Others had the salmon, the filet and the butter poached lobster over truffle mashed.

Desserts were all wonderful.

Service was excellent.

It was expensive. Apps in the $8 - $18 range with entrees $20 - $32. Wine by the glass was approx $12.

Considering the quality and ambience it was well worth it. This has been added to our list as a top of the line fine dining destination perfect for special occasions.
