    We were looking for a new place for my wife's birthday and Aqua Blue was recommended by open table for a romantic dinner. We were very happy we made this choice. The restaurant is beautifully done inside and the atmosphere is just great. What I found to be really nice is that you could come here for a formal dinner, casual dining with friends or to sit at the bar and have nice time out on the town. The blackened scallops were great and the lobster ravioli was out of this world. The food is well done and the preparation is excellent. This is an excellent restaurant and if you live on the 400 side of town and are heading to shows downtown you can eat early and make it downtown with no problems. You will love this place

    The 4 of us needed a good seafood fix, but didn't want to go too far. My sushi was awesome as well as the cobia special. Everyone loved their dish. It's an upscale setting without feeling overdone. We loved being able to bring our own wine without a corkage fee on the 1st bottle. We'll be back!!!

    I was traveling to the area for work, and had read good things on the other review sites, so I thought I'd give it a try. So glad that I did! My server was awesome, and the salmon was delicious. My only recommendation would be to ask them to not salt the Brussels sprouts when cooking (was a little overpowering). I also highly recommend the chocolate cake, cheesecake and ganache dessert (sorry, the name escapes me).

    The food was, as usual, so good! We had a lot of switching around of servers, so never really knew who to order from or to ask where the 4th serving was when it didn't show up with the other 3. New staff? We were taken care of though and will be back. Not cheap evening, but worth it.

    We've had dinner for anniversary and proved to be an ecxellent choice : nice overall atmosphere with cozy booths and ecxellent service. It was a close to perfect dinner for the account we didn't get our favorite wine( the Vouvray Barton-Guessier) but we still enjoyed a pretty good Chardonnay Monterey. We've got the promisse to add it in the future. Anyway, we heartly recomand for either, a romantic duo or a small group of friends.

    The four of us went on a Friday night. The restaurant was not busy and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. My scallops were available three ways. Unfortunately, I did not specify and the waitress didn't ask. They came blackened. Since I don't eat spicy food, my husband swapped part of his entrée for my scallops. My friends enjoyed their food. If you don't like spicy or salty please remember to tell them.

    From the outside you don't know what to expect. The location is odd. However, once you walk in you relax and relize that it has fresh, hip, and relaxed atomsphere. It was not very busy the night we went. I couldn't understand why. It made us wonder because the place looked amazing and the service was spot on. Then we got our food and it was first class! Now I'm glad it is not to busy because I want it to stay our hidden gem. We love everything about it! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

    Have dined at Aqua Blue several times. This time was to celebrate my birthday. The waiter gave birthday greetings upon my arrival and took our order promptly. I chose the stuffed pork chop over grits. Pork chop was a little dry for me. The meat closer to the bone was tasty, though. I usually don't order pork chops so, even though I finished my meal, I won't order them again. Our waiter seemed to change during the service - a young lady cleared our table, took our dessert order and brought the check. I overheard her giving the specials to two tables around us - something our original waiter didn't do. Had no idea there were specials! Saw our original waiter working the bar when we left. Overall a good meal, though, and I would return.

    Went with 1 guest and opted to have their sushi. I took forever to receive our order. The sushi was dried out and the rice was crusty. Clearly preprepared. The wine bottle we ordered didn't arrive until we were 50% done with our lunch. The waitress didn't know how to uncork a bottle. The bartender had to rescue her. STAY AWAY!!!

    I would have given an outstanding, but for the ambiance issue. I don't know why restaurants think they need to have loud music playing. People go to the restaurant to have good food and to talk and visit with one another. They are not going for a concert. I will admit that the restaurant turned the music down trying to accommodate our request, but it was still a bit loud for my taste.

    We were looking for steak and sushi and this place fit the bill. We had to travel from Marietta which has limited selection. Aqua blue is a very nice restaurant, great service, and I cant find many nice restauarts that will offer black napkins for black attire anymore. I always hsve to ask. Its such a small thing but means the difference other than the food and atmosphere.Thank you for a great night.

    Hadn't been here in like 15 years and decided to come for Mother's Day dinner. We had sushi shared between 3 of us and it was very good. We also had the calamari appetizer (really good!). The corn-bread muffins are great! We started to sit outside in a nice looking area but decided too hot and moved inside. We were seated in a booth type arrangement and it was nice for the 3 of us. The service was very good and all of the servers were friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

    Too many large group tables in one area. One group of women was especially obnoxious with the group cackling loudly every 30 seconds. Not what I expect from a fine dining establishment. Management should say something to groups that are this loud and obnoxious.....be quieter or leave or better yet go to a bar where the this behavior is acceptable. You know there is an issue when every one in the restaurant is turning to look at the group.

    It was a surprise party, for me!! In a wonderful private room. The waitress, Hilary, was absolutely awesome! Everyone raved about their food, except for me, I had the lobster ravioli and it was kind of boring, not a lot of flavor, a lot of plain pasta. But the appetizers were very good, calamari, fried green beans, dip, and the wine was good too. We'll be back, but not for the ravioli. They made me feel very special on my birthday.
