Water Grill



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.

"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

"Hands down, David is the most cosmopolitan chef working in Los Angeles right now. His food is sophisticated, beautiful and tastes delicious. Each element on the plate is a standout, yet together the flavors are married to perfection in a harmonious presentation inspired by nature." StarChefs

"Downtown's best-loved seafood restaurant is in the good hands of chef David LeFevre. His top-of-the-line fare, whether it's fresh oysters on a bed of ice, a whole-leaf salad with goat cheese, pear and toasted hazelnuts, or spanking-fresh fish artfully cooked. Desserts are divine." LA Magazine

"The opulent, dimly lit Art Deco atmosphere provides a luxurious backdrop for pristine seafood by a hot new chef." Angeleno Magazine

"A redoubt of oysters and fresh scallops, sparkling fish and sea creatures…LeFevre has added a certain global Gallic sensibility to the seafood cuisine—a peeky toe crab salad and the only local tuna tartare we would dream of ordering a second time." LA Weekly

"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

Water Grill has earned a star from Michelin Guides, 2008. And, Water Grill earned the "Best 57 Fine Dining Restaurants in America" accolade by The Robb Report, March 2007. See our reviews!
