Our innkeeper suggested this spot near the water. You can sit inside or out. It's casual but there is a nice ambiance if you want to dress up. We sat inside and watched the kitchen staff hard at work. They have nightly specials. My husband...More

Love this place! Waterstreet's amazing Ambiance is complemented by outstandingly professional service. The food is simple yet thoughtfully unique. Make reservations on the weekend, this place gets busy!

We shared appetizers & had some wine for Happy Hour. Prices were okay, but not overly thrilled with appetizers - would not recommend the calamari - simply boring and not very flavorful. Might try it again, but not rushing to return.

We had an enjoyable evening with friendly service, great food, and very pleasant atmosphere. I experimented with the curried vegetables and was amazed at how good they were. A must visit restaurant in Olympia.

We had dinner at the Waterstreet Café yesterday. Everything was excellent -- from the friendly greeting at the door, to the service, and the food. The restaurant is not inexpensive, but it's appropriate for the experience. The only negative is that the menu is rather...More

I had the Korean BBQ Sea Bass and it was amazing. Honestly have never had a bad meal here. The Hot and Dirty Martini special of the night complemented the meal perfectly. We had a table at the front window and both the server and...More

I searched for a quiet place in Olympia to meet a friend who I hadn't seen in several years. I was really hoping to find a quiet place so we could catch up and one where we wouldn't be rushed. I found it at Waterstreet....More

It's Olympia, you can wear whatever you want and probably get away with it. Likely a business casual sort of attire would be good.
