    We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food from this restaurant, as it's in a hotel. The food was first rate and imaginative. Service was good and very attentive and friendly.

    if you're staying at this hotel, it's a good meal, better than most airport hotels would be. linguine and clams was good, plank salmon was good (not great, like you want from seattle) and the raspberry sorbet was nice. decent wine list as you would expect...

    From the host taking several minutes to come over (mostly empty place) to the waitress who acted put out, to the soggy hash browns and the ridiculous price for a breakfast sandwich and coffee (20 bucks!) I could not have been more disappointed.

    I took my girlfriend here for Valentines Day. From the reviews it looked like it would be a pretty decent place to dine. The service was absolutely horrible. Our waiter never once checked on us. We had to flag people down to get any service. I never even once was asked if I wanted another drink. Our meals were alright, nothing I couldn't have cooked myself. I Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone

    We were searching for the right place for 3 of us to share our Christmas dinner. This proved to be a wonderful choice. Great service, just the right amount of options in the buffet to make it seem like a "family" dinner. We will return.

    Food was good but it was not worth $70 for 2 people. We were there last year for Mother's Day and our meal was $20 more this year. For $70 we could have went to a better restaurant. The Melting Pot would have cost less. We will not return.

    Good Easter brunch but unless you have a big group and can be in a separate room, don't expect any ambiance whatsoever. Quite noisy and we were by the kitchen area where staff was constantly entering and exiting, even though I asked for a different table, they would not move us.

    While the food was good, and the waiter did say that our entree selection would take 25 minutes, the soups that we added in order to fill in that time did not arrive for 20 minutes. What was the point? Getting his attention was impossible, even though the room was well lit, open and had few other diners. The woman clearing the plates ended up taking our dessert order.

    We actually came here for an early breakfast before heading out to Anacortes. The food was good for your standard breakfast buffet and featured all the usual suspects. It took about 10 minutes, however, before a cook turned up to start making omelettes and we were in a time crunch, so I was a little uncomfortable with that. We did have enough time, but it would have been better if the wait staff had been a little more ready.

    This was my first experience and I was not sure of what to expect but was pleasantly supprised. this is a gem located inside the Hotel and it offered a cozy brunch atmosphere to my delight since it was the Mother's Day brunch I brought my aunt to. I do not think they offer a brunch menu outsied of special days but i would recommend when they do that you be sure to enjoy. Food was fresh and well seasoned. Great Recommendation Open Table!

    This great place is hidden away in a hotel next to SeaTac Airport. The menu is not overwhelming and the selections are 4-5 star quality. I highly recommend the Halibut. The service and staff were very friendly and fast. Can't wait to enjoy this another night.

    This little gem is tucked away in a Marriot by the Airport. The trout I had was amazing. As was the beet salad and the apple a la mode. Everything was delicious except the steak wraps. The meat was a bit down graded for what I think of as an appetizer and comparable to the rest of the meal. Terrific Service!

    I ate dinner once and breakfast three times there this week. The food is well prepared and pricing average for a hotel that caters to business travelers. Service is spotty. There were few people in the restaurant all four times I was there, and it appeared that the wait staff preferred to remain in the kitchen and to come out on occasion. They all are pleasant and smile - however most of them sleep walk through the motions. I would not eat there again unless I were to stat at the Marriott Hotel which houses the restaurant and I lacked the time to eat somewhere else.

    They are in the process of renovating so their temporary space was ajacent to the pool and in their atrium lots of obstacles making service more slow since the kitchen was not nearby. the staff were excellent and as attentive as possible but their job was made harder by the renovation detoured space. Parking a mystery and hard to navigate thru guests vs restaurant patrons due to renovation. Bartender was awesome, attentive, entertaining, rn back and forth multiple times to serve us. Made special cocktails designed just for each patron's taste!

    This was our first time going out for dinner on Christmas. Hard to find places open so we took a chance on this place. Didn't know it was in the ballroom instead of the restaurant at the hotel. But the buffet was very nice, and the server worked very hard -harder than necessary! All in all, we were very satisfied as no one wanted to cook that day! Nice variety of main courses and desserts!!

    Christmas dinner was hosted in a ballroom, so not quite the setting I expected but it was well decorated and offered live harp music. The food was excellent, everyone enjoyed it even the kids. We were actually not charged for my kids (2+7) which was most appreciated. Service could have been better, but really we had a nice time together and everyone around us seemed to enjoy it.

    Marriott went through a renovation but did not update on any placard as to restaurants location. We wandered, found it, didn't seem to matter that we made reservations. Why bother? No mention of "floating restaurant", no mention of "NO Buffet". Food, nothing to write home about. Staff even mocked that location was a mystery. Observed other customers waiting for tables - so they sat themselves and had to flag down a waitstaff. Food came out lukewarm.

    My husband and I found ourselves alone for Thanksgiving this year and we decided to take a chance on a buffet. Happily we settled on Aqua Terra. The food was excellent and the service attentive. We are looking forward to having Easter and Mother's Day brunch in their renovated space.

    We hit up the Thanksgiving buffet. It also happened to be my birthday. It was a traditional Thanksgiving buffet, for turkey and mashed potatoes it was super- definately the NW was there. Lots of fresh salad and hor d'oevores choices including smoked salm on and fresh brie. Champagne flowed generously and desserts were abundant and varied. The only complaint is once in the hotel, it wasn't in the actual restaurant and finding the banquet room was a challenge.
