    Tuna steak chewy. Lobster chewy. Atmosphere was awful music and absolutely zero dining patrons on a Saturday night. Made us wonder if we were aware of something reported in the news!! Also they sell beauty products at the door. How low rent is that??!

    Read the reviews but wanted to try. Food was good, excellent outdoor bar and management very attentive. A few misses on the service but look like they are being addressed. We had a large party and still enjoyed it.

    We have been going to AP for quite a while and always enjoy it. However we would like the new owner-Steve Westphal-to bring back the "small dishes" menu that used to be available. My "short ribs" were tasty last night but slightly overcooked. Overall still quite good.

    The restaurant is lacking in atmosphere. Service was good and our waitress was very attentive. Food was average and prices were a little high for the quality. I had filet and without the sauce it was very bland. Crab cakes were large but again only average. Not in a hurry to return. They did have a lively band and outdoor dining in the rear of the restaurant which seemed to be well attended.

    WE arrived for a 7:30PM reservation. We waited at the hostess desk for a good 5-8 minutes and no one noticed us. We went to the bar and asked for help with reservation/seating. We were seated and immediately asked about drinks...no time to even look at wine list. Got drinks and then waited over 30 minutes for waitress to return to take order or answer our questions about the menu. We had to flag someone down to get attention. The restaurant was not crowded. There was one large group 10+ finishing with their desserts. Meal was excellent in taste and portion. Server was pleasant, but whatever created the extreme slowness and lack of attention need to be corrected or they will never make it during the season in Indian Rocks Beach!

    Took at least 10minutes for a server to come to our table, when we asked about the specials she handed us her "cheat sheet" with the specials listed and some scratched out handwriting with different prices. They were out of multiple items on the regular menu, and the servers knowledge about the menu was less than desirable. The restaurant was pretty vacant for a Saturday night and the music was awful. Don't think I will be returning. Food was not that great either.

    The restaurant has a great location but it's no wonder it only had unknowing tourists and local drinkers for the happy hour. They have an outside band and good atmosphere outside. 5 small coconut shrimp 10.99, desert ordered and received almost 15 minutes later was a very good apple pie alamode. 15.00 grouper sandwiches and 6.50 bad Cabernet ... Would not recommend ...

    We had a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their meal. It was the 1st time for any of us to visit this restaurant. I live in Michigan, and my Mom and Sister and her family live in Chicago area. They were down and renting a condo nearby. They will probably return because of the food and attentive service.

    I dined here on a Monday night with 3 adults and a baby. We were seated at our 7:30 reservation time. I liked the decor and the ambiance. Our server was nice and attentive. 3 of us ordered the filet mignon with herb roasted potatoes and sweet potatoe waffle fries. All 3 steaks were cooked wrong. I sent my undercooked steak back and it was promptly fixed and brought back out by the chef. The food itself was pretty tasty. Of course you can't compare the steaks to say Shulas or Flemings but they tasted great nevertheless. We all enjoyed our our sides and sauces as well. My husbands roast pork burrito was good too. Overall we had a nice experience and didn't think the prices were bad at all. We'd definitely like to back for lunch sometime.

    Nice menu, food's very fresh. but everything seemed to be over salted. Had the scallop app. would have been great is they left some of the salt off. Caesar salad was good, but only one crouton in the whole salad. Not trying to be picky just honest. My son had a rib-eye again very salty and he was never asked how he'd liked it cooked. He asked me do I think that's because he was a kid???. It was well done he likes it med rare. Should have sent it back, but he didn't tell me till the end of dinner and most of it still on his plate. I had the tuna dinner and it was cooked and taste excellent.

    Most restaurants are very disappointing on Mother's Day,etc. The food here was quite good: fresh (not pasteurized) crabmeat in the crab cakes, fresh , tender grilled octopus, good house-made desserts. The service was excellent. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

    To be frank I was a little bit apprehensive before visiting Aqua Prime due to the fact there were no prices on the online menu. And a couple if the reviews mentioned they had ordered scallops for $24.00 and got a serving of 3. Pretty pricey. Well we were pleasantly surprised as there were many reasonable items on the menu. I had the greatest appetizer, the surf and turf. It was excellent and much more than a starter. In fact that coupled with a salad was all I could eat. The presentations on all our meals were beautiful.. We were there for happy hour and loved those prices. We (5) of us even gave the waiter Benny a tough tryout by asking for 3 separate bills and not sitting as couples. He came thru with smiles.

    Food was great. All six of us liked what we ordered. I had short ribs which were fall off the bone. Mussels were great and my friend had ordered the tuna which he said was the best he's ever had. Our server Beth was very attentive to our group. We were seated far enough away to hear the guy singing in the lounge area. After dinner we went out on their back patio area for a drink. They had great live music there too.

    It was our first time to Aqua Blue. The restaurant was very nice with a lovely decor. Our waiter, who was French was a pro and gave great reccomendations! The food was good and we left very happy. Nice to have a new restaurant in the area to enjoy- just wish it had outdoor seating as it wasn't offered the night we were there.

Felt like the waitress maybe was new as she didn't seem real confident with everything. Food is good but probably will try some other places before returning. Two visits and two mess ups on orders.

    On the down side, the restaurant (Saturday at 7 PM!) was out of things that we wanted to eat -- e.g., fresh oysters and grouper. With such a limited menu, holes like that are pretty significant. That said, all the "main" courses were well cooked and delicious. I can't say the same about the sides: basmati rice was dry, gnocci were served in a puddle of grease, Yukon mashed were over garlicky. The vegetables that came with every entre, however, were fresh, simple and delicious. Appetizer portion sizes are small; get multiples for more than 2-3 diners. The wine list is small but reasonably priced. The service was like the food: excellent at times, merely adequate at others. The décor is in fact aqua -- but uninspired.

    We were a group of six and everyone ordered something different. Everyone commented how good the food was presented and tasted. My only comment is on my order. I ordered deep water scallops as my main course. The cost was $24.00 ( little high but I had heard from other people how good they were) and they were great but there was only 3 scallops. $8.00 a scallop????. Just last night I was at another place and got 8 scallops just a little smaller for $16.95. So I am not sure if aquai just was running out of scallops that night or if that is number they serve all the time.
