Diner Reviews
  • "Our meals were good, but salty. The sushi was outstanding and we would definitely return for that. The place has a nice ambiance, but could use some aesthetic cleaning (air vents, windows, cobwebs). Our waitress was very good."

  • "The menu has a good variety, food was very good, service excellent....would recommend it!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The service was excellent from the time we arrived until the door was opened for us when we left. The server was energetic, but not intrusive. Lindsay was very helpful with menu questions and there when needed. The appetizers, salads and entrees arrived in a timely manner, served and presented perfectly. All confirmed the food was excellent and I know the lamb shank was outstanding. Overall a very nice dining experience. Thanks."

  • "Rather by default, we got reservations at Aqua Blue. My husband, who can be rather picky, was stunned by the menu offerings. There were so many things that looked good that we had a hard time deciding what to order. We found the wine list to our liking too. Many new wines to try, but also many of our familiar favorites. Some reviews said it is a bit pricey, but we found the prices to be very inline with what we would expect to pay. Only one little complaint...we did have reservations, although the restaurant was not very busy that night, and they chose to seat our party of 4 in a booth facing a waiter station. There were much nicer views to be had. It was a little farther than we normally drive for dinner out, but we will go back."

  • "Live nearby but had not been in many years, so glad we did, we'll be back as a go to option for many reasons! Very good selection, reasonable prices, great service and everything tasted great! The new owner/chef seems to take great pride in this gem."

  • "Our family of 6 gathered for my birthday dinner recently. The food selections are numerous. Members of our party had sushi and seafood. Everything was well prepared and presented. Our server was courteous, friendly, and very efficient. It was a nice evening, and we will return."

  • "First time at this restaurant. We had dinner with some good friends. Wide selection of items on the menu; for anyone. From seafood to pork to chicken to steak. Great portions, not too much, just the right amount. Fabulous wine list. We ordered wine from one of our favorite wineries that are not normally on restaurant wine lists. Service was fabulous!! (thanks Ashley!!). Highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Always, Always, excellent food and impecable service. Genuine nice, professional staff. Crowd upbeat, noisy, but that's a sign of fun. Yet, you can enjoy a personal celebration when you want without distraction. *****"

  • "Overall, the experience was disappointing.I ordered a strip steak, which was small and thin, and was virtually tasteless. My wife had a Gorgonzola crusted sirloin cut which she said was "good". The sides were OK but not spectacular. Since this was a birthday celebration dinner we were given a complementary dessert, which was the molten chocolate cake topped with whipped cream and a side of vanilla ice cream. This was by far the best part of the meal I have eaten at Aqua Blue several times in the past but this experience was not a pleasant one and I will not be back for a long time."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here on the recommendation of a friend regarding their sushi. And we're glad that we did. It was excellent and reasonably priced. That is all we ate that night, so I can't rate the other food. But, we'll definitely go back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We eat at aqua blue at least once a month. We have never ever had a bad meal. The calamari and also the green bean appetizers are terrific especially for sharing. We love their seafood and steaks. The staff is super friendly and very experienced. Reservations are easy and never a problem."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The food was terrific and the service was good. (Disclaimer: I realize I'm being picky here, but I expected more from AB.) For a restaurant of this caliber they should know that cold sake is not served in the same white tokkuri that hot sake is served in. The cold unfiltered sake I ordered should come in a clear bottle or wooden box and should be chilled way more than it was. I commented to the waitress regarding this and to her credit she tried to fix it by putting the container on ice to recify the situation. However byt the time she brought the chilled one to me I had finished eating and I didn't end up drinking the sake. I really expected her to take it off my bill but she didn't. Other than that I enjoyed the food. Unfortunate..."

  • "Aqua Blue met expectations and even exceeded them with their menu choices and great seafood. Try the crabcakes, they don't disappoint! The pace of serving seemed a bit slow and the waitress wisked away my salad before I noticed or tell her I wasn't finished with it - so be aware of over-zealous serving! Otherwise, a pretty setting that's unique in design with a good wine menu and bar. Great choice for a special occaision!"

  • "The restaurant was lovely - great music in the background. But, all four of our entrees were too salty and really nothing to write home about. We were disappointed."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food was fabulous. The only thing that would have made it better, would be if they had more areas setup for a little more private dining experience. Couples want to have a romantic experience and having two person tables mixed in with group tables in an open space that had lots of loud chatter, made it hard to hear the person you were actually sitting across from."

  • "The food was very good, but the service was rather slow. Different than usual."

  • "For many years I have driven by this restaurant. I never had eaten there. On 2/15/14 I decided to take friend there because several of our neighbors had eaten there. The food was excellent. The waiter was very accommodating. Our friend cannot eat cheese because she has allegies an the waiter, although he did not know if cheese was in certain dishes, took the time to go and find out for her. He did everything he could to make her comfortable with her choices. VERY nice evening."

  • "the food was delicious. the restaurant has a great wine list and the ambiance was perfect for a romantic dinner for two...but not without some slight problems. Even with a reservation we waited an additional 15+ minutes. The kitchen was out of a few main menu items and slow about getting food out. No fault of the restaurant in my opinion. Probably due to the winter storm that halted deliveries and the rush of people celebrating valentine's day. They have so many great menu items we'll be back!"

  • "the food was very well prepared, the taste and seasoning was Fantastic!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We recently went to Aqua Blue on 2/13/14 and were extremely disappointed in the experience. First, after making a reservation, we were sat in the bar area where it was very noisy. We then had to flag down our server after a few minutes to get some bread as he was too busy watching tv. He was very unattentive all night and we ended up having to go to the bar to get our check when we were ready. The food was great as always but what really makes this experience disapponting is how far off of the norm it was. This is the first issue we've had but it was a big one."

  • "We invited some clients from out of town to dinner and they picked this place from the OpenTable list. I had never heard of it but thought the food sounded good and the reviews weren't bad. We got there for an extended happy hour and dinner and the place was dead... I'm talking 10 people in the place allnight long. I know it was a weeknight in Alpharetta, but still not the vibe that I wanted to give to my clients. The upside was that we did get in lots of work... Food was decent and service was wonderful, but I don't believe I'll be back."

  • "Needed a spot to meet a couple from another part of town so picked this due to it being a middle ground and was quite surprised. This restaurant has been here for many years with lots of ups and downs with peoples reviews. We felt we had a better than anticipated dinner! My Sea Bass with HongKong sauce was outstanding. The tempera beans are an absolute! Our only disappointment was they were out of a wine we wanted and the waiter had recommended a gouda potato pancake to my husband only to come back and say they were out. We will return"

  • "We never know what kind of experience we'll have at Aqua Blue. Sometimes great, sometimes not so great. We ordered the edamame appetizer but some of the edamame was still cold (almost frozen) and they all tasted like fish. I'm guessing that the bamboo steamer had recently been used to steam fish. I order the hanger steak entree which was ok. It was pretty salty and a little tough. The steak fries were cooked perfectly, crispy on the outside and piping hot and fluffy on the inside. My husband's sushi entree was great."

  • "My Wife and I had the New Years Eve 3 course Prix Fixe Dinner Special. We both chose the steak and crispy shrimp. For the price we were paying we expected a small steak and some small shrimp. Instead we received full-sized steaks, and three large shrimp - all cooked perfectly as ordered. We both took large pieces of our steak home for steak and eggs on New Year's Day. Our favorite waitress - Kimberly - was funny, gracious and efficient as always."

  • "Dining out on Christmas Eve can be a challenge for any restaurant, This restaurant in particular seemed to have quite a few significant issues. The food was not especially remarkable, people were on their cell phones, children were being unmanageable, and the ambiance was not one for quiet romantic Christmas dining.There was a significant delay between salad and the main meal, with the main entrée of steak being tender but not of choice quality. I could have stayed home and grilled a better steak from Publix or Kroger. Had I chosen a family diner, the food quality may have been similar and I would have expected the issues noted above. I would not return to this restaurant nor would I recommend it to anyone else."
