About the restaurant
Water for Chocolate provides an intimate and savory experience with a nod to personal space and service.
Chef Sean Guy and his team prepares creative dishes using seasonal ingredients with the best of intentions.
The result is a fresh, eclectic take on comfort food that elevates the familiar to wow!!
Pairings with "holistic cocktails" such as the house brewed ginger beer and a selected wine portfolio allows for guests to create real dining memories.

Every moment — and bite — was nothing short of spectacular. We enjoyed the prix fixe menu with five courses, including mostly seafood as our protein. Cooked to perfection, well spiced, and satiating. Both chef and DiAnte (waiter - sorry if I misspelled) made us feel welcome as if at their home, while cooking as if we were top food critics. Bravo to both. Make a reservation ASAP (that’s the only way you'll get in!)

Service was superior! Amy was terrific! The owner Ken was very attentive and visited our table...and the food was awesome! This was a Birthday celebration and they even gifted the Birthday Boy with a "Bud's coffee cup"! Classy move. Love it there!

We have dined at Bas Rouge on a handful of occasions and it never disappoints. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe an evening at Bas Rouge. Impeccable service. Wonderful ambiance. And the food… the quality and fusion of the flavors combine for a meal like no other. Bas Rouge is quite literally our favorite restaurant in the world. Highly recommend! 5star +

I only wished that there was more room between tables. I was bumped multiple times unfortunately, which slightly spilled my drink. There was also no where to stand when entering the restaurant, so I felt bad for people by the door and bar. Overall, spectacular food and service.

Lovely venue with pleasant and attentive staff. Limited menu options and more fish/seafood was fine for us but would be limiting for our friends with seafood allergies. The fresh produce was great and well prepared. The beef was a bit tough, tasty but not worth the high price point. Appetizers were delicious. We were too stuffed to have dessert.
