Top seafood restaurant and wine bar with table or bar service. As fresh as it gets, and incredibly high standards across the board.

Old school DTLA seafood spot. Dark wood. Big booths. Been waiting to try - oyster bar, loaded menu. Healthy options. Greatness!

When I was perusing Yelp photos prior to coming to this establishment I was eyeing the pan-seared Colorado catch striped bass, cipollini onions, mushrooms, Yukon gold purée. I didn't get a chance to ask why the menu was changed or if it was seasonal but the striped bass was pan seared with farro risotto and parmesan cream instead. Please refer to my uploaded photos. It also had a soy sauce after taste much like asian restaurants, and a tad bit too salty.

My other friend was unsatisfied with her entree and she had it switched out, no problem whatsoever.

However, the Peruvian bay scallops with citris pesto were delish! I would definitely swing by here for the chilled shellfish bar after work or before heading out to another party if I was in the vicinity.

It's a perfect place for a business meeting or dinner with the family. The food is pricy but every tasty. I got the Trout and it was perfectly cooked!

Housed on the bottom floor of the historic Pacific Mutual Building, the Water Grill is justifiably well-known for its excellent seafood entrees. Close to the Biltmore and next door to Caravan Books, it's a great, but expensive, place to nourish yourself while touring downtown.
