Ren and I were in the mood for good seafood so we decided to give Water Grill, located in downtown, Los Angeles a try. We were really glad we did.  Water Grill is very classy and sophisticated. The decor and ambiance are truly top notch, adding a relaxed soothing feel.

The Host and staff are professional and courteous and pay close attention to the needs of their patrons. The menu of Water Grill ranges from an extensive raw bar selection to shellfish, sashimi and fresh fish selections.

Our server for the evening was John.  He was very pleasant, accommodating and had a great sense of humor. We had fun each dishing out some humor.

The preparation of every item on Water Grill’s menu is exquisite with attention to detail and presentation.  For appetizers, Ren and I ordered two and shared them.  Our first was 1/2 pound of Wild Jumbo Pacific Shrimp. When they say “Jumbo” they mean jumbo!.  The presentation was awesome.  The shrimp come arranged nicely on a bed of fresh crushed ice and lightly seasoned.  The taste of their shrimp is phenomenal and the texture is perfect. The cocktail sauce is freshly made and delicious as well. Our second appetizer was the Australian Hamachi Sashimi. It consisted of Yuzu, red radish, Asian pear and shiso. Again, the presentation was terrific and the taste was supreme.

For dinner, we ordered the Line Caught Morro Bay Swordfish. It was seared and served with Sicilian puttanesca, pepperoncini orzo and grilled zucchini. We really liked the presentation of the swordfish.  There were two medallions of swordfish that resembled two boneless pork chops. The taste and texture of the swordfish was superb.  It was cooked to perfection and the orzo was also delicious. The orzo seemed like it was quickly pan fried in olive oil because of its slight toastiness. We really enjoyed it.  The puttanesca sauce added a great little zip the the fish.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Water Grill.  The atmosphere, service and food are wonderful. Be prepared to have a costly meal, however, because the menu selections are pricey and the portions can leave you a wee bit hungry afterward. ;-)
