The staff were nice and helpful but three order incorrect. Roast beef came in pink instead of brown despite being asked for preference by staff. Asked for two chocolate ice cream scoops and one vanilla scoop - got it the other way round. My wife's brie from cheeseboard was like a brick and returned. Should never have left kitchen. Despite all this it was just about ok. Did not tip. I like to tip as I used to work in the trade and appreciate how hard it is. Cheers

Was visiting Ayr with Family yesterday and we went to the Waterfront for dinner. There was 7 adults and 2 young children. The staff where amazing and made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us. The food was freshly cooked and tasted fantastic. Great choice on the menu and not over priced. Highly recommend.

The overall service I feel wasn't great to be honest. When myself and my partner arrived we advised we had a reservation and it looked to us as though the staff were not aware of the reservation I had made, and to be told "just sit at that booth at the back" whilst one of the waitresses pointed to a table at the back of the room I don't really find that acceptable service.... it would have been a lot nicer and better customer service to have been shown to our table. The drinks were good value and the cocktail my partner ordered they enjoyed it. The meal itself, we both ordered pan fried salmon with chilli noodles. The salmon was average but I expected the salmon to have crispy skin as it was pan fried? The sauce on the noodles tasted like it was out of a jar. We decided not to have a dessert as the main was not great. We asked for the bill and were then charged full price for the salmon when it was a promo every Friday night "Fishy Friday". We had to go to the bar and advise we had been overcharged for the meals which was rectified by one of the waitresses. Im not sure if it was just a bad night or something was wrong but the overall atmosphere, service and food was all quite poor and unfortunately we wont be returning and wont be recommending the Waterfront as we were both disappointed after reading the great reviews about it!

Roast beef was very dried up, Yorkshire pudding and carrots and parsnips nice however the whole dish was not hot enough, but disappointing. Pudding was good.
