Is The Water Grill as good as it was back in the glory days?

I remember reading some time ago that their Executive Chef left and that it isn't as good as it used to be. I have never been there and have always wanted to go but I am having mixed feelings about it. What have been your experiences lately?

    LeFevre has continued and IMO improved upon the fine tradition at Water Grill established by Cimarusti.

    Go, you won't be disappointed.

    Only regret I have about this place is that the pastry chef (Duncan Koa) has left.

      I just found Providence. Have you gone and is it as good as Watergrill?

        Both places are fine, although I am a bigger fan of Water Grill than Providence.

        I like Providence, but I am not as big a fan of the place as many on the board are.

        Providence and Water Grill are quite different. Providence is seafood with a French flair; whereas Water Grill lacks the Cal-French accents that Cimarusti has built into his menu at Providence.

        Do a search on the boards (just type in "Providence" on the search box) and you'll find lots of reviews.

        Enjoy ... wherever you end up.
