- Watercress isn't your traditional Chinese-banquet restaurant, nor is it your modest noodle house. It's more middle-of-the road, with good service, ambience and food. – Tan Vinh, Seattle Times
- Watercress is an upscale Bistro with Asian flare. The service was fantastic, the food spicy and delicious. It's great to have this hidden gem in the Redmond 'hood. – good eats, Urbanspoon
