Aqua Restaurant and Spa - Duck, NC
Excellent menu, prepared perfectly.Excellent menu, prepared perfectly. Great service. Friendly atmosphere. What more could you ask for?5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food ans serviceThe food was delicious and our server was attentive and helpful. We were dining in a large party but everyone was able to find something to enjoy off the menu. The only down side to our evening was the noise level. It was extremely hard to talk to those at our table and even our waiter. There was a musician playing in the bar area and the volume on his speaker was definitely up too high. If I return I would like to request outdoor seating so this is not an issue. Overall our experience was positive and we all enjoyed our meal at Aqua.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding restaurant in DuckThis restaurant owned and managed by the former sommelier when former restaurant, Left Bank was quality, is a notable destination for quality food and a spectacular wine list. Food is impeccable and delightfully served. The view of the sound makes for a beautiful sunset dining experience. We so enjoyed our meal that we made a return reservation for the following evening. The signature corn& crab soup is outstanding and the daily line caught fish - a grouper was pristine, served one evening on a perfectly cooked couscous, and the following evening on a salsa. We will definitely return to Aqua each time we come to the Outer Banks, and recommend it to our many friends who come.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAqua is a GemWe’ve been around Duck for almost 20 years. We especially appreciate $5 Fridays. It’s a great way to kick off the weekend. Sit at the bar, watch the sun set, have a fabulous hamburger or superb fish tacos!
We give spa certificates to our children for presents when they visit. It’s such a luxurious treat while they’re on vacation.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingI have been to Aqua S many times and everything is always outstanding. Great for a girls night out,or any special occasion.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food - But small portionsOverall, the food and service was very good. I had the pork chop and spaetzle. Everything was prepared very well, but the spaetzle portion was maybe three bites. For the price (on the high side), the portion was not adequate. I'm more than happy to pay for excellent food, but it was a real issue. Similar experience with my girlfriend's order of duck and gnocchi. Small portion. Restaurant has an excellent view of the water at sunset and was quiet since it was still in the off season for the Outer Banks.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing view, friendly serviceAmazing view, friendly service and killer sushi. Wish there had been more seafood options on the menu, seeing as it's on the water, but otherwise was extremely impressed!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMStill greatReturned after Winter to find Aqua still up to our high standards. I had the caesar salad (good, not spectacuar, but this is fine) and rock fish special - thich piece about an inch wide. Wife had acorn squash soup, banging shrimp, and the fish taco. We have been going to Aqua, mostly in the off season, since they opened. Quality never fails. Will probably go back for brunch on Sunday.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our dinnerWe really enjoyed our dinner at Aqua. we ordered the salmon special and the pasta special. Both were excellent. We enjoyed the live music also. The view is beautiful and an excellent location to see the sun set. We will add this restaurant as one of our favorites to go to in the Outerbanks.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
