One week after New Year's is our wedding anniversary. The Sunday brunch was a quiet and relaxing celebration being a slow time. The service was excellent. Since it was slow we were offered a table near the window facing the beautiful water views. The food assortment was very good. Short ribs so yummy. Waffles, eggs Benedict han, beef, pork chicken....

After reading several negative reviews on Facebook & Trip Advisor, we were a bit reluctant to eat @ the hotel restaurant & called around to several local eateries to find nothing open for Christmas dinner. Left with no choice,we gave it a try. Not only was the atmosphere completely breathtaking, all the staff was attentive & friendly, the food was... More

We had breakfast at the restaurant twice during a one-week stay. The first time we had omelettes, fruit and coffee. The view over Long Island Sound to terrific. The service was friendly and competent, if not exactly fast considering we were almost the only ones in the place. The food was fresh, tasty and nicely presented. It's a little pricey... More

We had a really great meal despite our stay at Waters Edge being horrible. The food was really the only thing enjoyable for us.

We tried the Sunday brunch here due to the location (right on LI Sound) and prior recommendations. While the outdoor scenery and the design of the restaurant are quite beautiful the high price and the mediocre service earn this spot only an average grade. Since it is buffet style the only service required is juice and coffee and we saw... More

I remember when this hotel was built and opened. Five stars for sure for facilities, customer service and quality of the food. When calling for a reservation today, I searched the web, opened the top listing for waters edge, pushed the reservation link, and got a second party booking agent from India. As nice as he was, it was long,... More

Went with a large group of people for a catered breakfast. It was nice to see that they were serving fresh fruit as part of the buffet. There was a limited selection of baked goods. The buffet consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes. There was a small selection of bagels available.

Lovely, high end ambience within a well known resort. The views from the dinning room are the best along the coast. The staff is friendly, the experience is good, but the menu is limited, and they seem to have gone through too many chefs. There is so much that is right about this resort dining experience, I just wish they... More

The staff worked with us to make the stay reasonable, but still luxurious. We had $100 credit per night per room which could be used in the spa or dining room.
