Best Seafood In Los Angeles

Water Grill – Downtown LA

544 S. Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90071
(213) 891-0900


The Water Grill is LA’s consummate high-end seafood restaurant. What Mastro’s is to steaks, the Water Grill is to fish. Helmed by Amanda Baumgarten, who audiences will remember from Season 7 of Bravo TV’s “Top Chef”, the restaurant features an extensive oyster and raw bar selection and sampling of the world’s best seafood, earning it a prestigious Michelin star. The sophisticated and open dining room is accented with auburn woods and ocean murals. At the center is an elegant zinc-inlaid bar which displays an always changing selection of over 14 raw bar items to include Long Island Littleneck clams, Channel Islands sea urchins and six varieties of oysters on the half shell.

Menu Must-Haves: Raw Bar (eight types of oysters, nine varieties of chilled shellfish including large Channel Islands purple sea urchin, Alaskan king crab “nuggets”, and Oregon Dungeness crab available by the piece, ½ pound and whole pound).
