Which one would you choose for a Thursday night dinner?

    I would choose Patina myself, though Water Grill is fine, and probably more impressive. I never really love the food at Water Grill.

      Well, this is late. But WG for sure. I've had three stellar meals there this year. My two times to Patina - and I was a huge fan when it was on Melrose - were just ok. Nothing to warrant the price. That was the first year it was open, so perhaps it has improved. But WG is terrific.

        I must say Water Grill. I have never been disappointed by their always impeccable seafood. Patina, in my latest meal was nothing special.

            I would happily choose either place. If I was in the mood for seafood, WG. If I was not in the mood for seafood, or with a party with some wanting seafood and others not, I would choose Patina. I have always thought Patina had a better wines by the glass selection if that matters. Both have good wine lists, however. I have always had excellent service at both.
