Meet Chef Maria

Chef and Owner Maria Walusis has been passionately preparing delicious food for over thirty years.

As a Dayton native and graduate of The Ohio State University, she has trained under and partnered with leading chefs in both Dayton and Cincinnati. Her pursuit of a culinary career grew out of a love for both cooking and entertaining, and her natural desire to be a host.

“I love being a part of the diverse and vibrant Dayton-area dining community. There are so many excellent chefs, and we are uniquely blessed in that so many of them also happen to be women. This creates a restaurant scene that truly sets the Dayton area apart.”

Well-known for her creative takes on classic fare, as well as introducing diners to unusual ingredients and combinations, Watermark was voted Best Fine Dining in the 2017 Dayton.com poll, and continues the rotating ‘Chef’s Whim’ menu concept she developed at her first restaurant, Nibbles.

Maria is strongly committed to impacting lives through mentoring others, as well as long-term   involvement with local charities and community groups so she can give back.

At Watermark, our dishes are all freshly prepared, and all of our sauces, dressings, and desserts are house-made. Chef Maria invites you to visit us soon, where we strive to provide a wonderful experience for all of our guests!
