  • "I have enjoyed Aqua on a number of occasions, from using The Wine Room for a romantic dinner to the large table and booths. I find the food and service always very good."

  • "Very nice restaurant and the food was good and very nicely presented. The risotto was good but if welter dish was way too big. A smaller amount would make the dish more appetizing. The serving size was to me way too large. Taste was good though."

  • "Because the inside was so cold, we opted to eat outside near the beach. It was a lovely evening and a very attractive scenery with the beach, water and umbrellas. Our food was wonderful except for the risotto. There were 4 of us and we all had different meals. The waiter was attentive even though we were outside. A fun night."

  • "when you have to send your entrea $30.00 back to be heated from an area that was less then twenty feet away and quiet noisey the customer was less than impressed..The answer to question #2 is I would not recommend this restaurant AT ALL"

  • "Took a long to get the food, but other than that everything was great....."

  • "Negative: It was very disappointing Aqua could not locate my reservation on the disheveled, handwritten yellow note pad they had at their hostess station. Both hostesses acted as if it was the last place they wanted to be in the world. Positive: The food was absolutely excellent."

  • "The restaurant is beautiful with amazing decor. Waiter was more interested in going home than doing his job. For foods that we had not heard of before, he looked at us like we were stupid. The food was good but could be found elsewhere for a cheaper price. I normally dine in downtown st pete but wanted to give tampa a shot but after eating at aqua, i will probably stay in st pete."

  • "Great location with a view, but the menu is lacking a wow factor."

  • "Aqua is located in the Westin Hotel on the causeway, but don't let that stop you from trying it. The food was beautifully prepared, portions were more than ample, the service was outstanding, and the ambience was quietly elegant. For the quality and the service we received, this restaurant should be much busier than it was on a Saturday night. If you haven't been, you need to check it out."

  • "Great food and excellent service, the Chef is really on top of everything and all of the food was really fresh. Nothing is pre done here waiting to be shoveled on your plate. All of the food is made to order and it shows."

  • "Went with friends to celebrate my husband's birthday and it could not have been a better choice. The food was absolutely delicious, the pace was just right, and the restaurant's ackowledgement of my husband's birthday was perfect -- a card signed by the staff and a decadent chocolat mousse. Aqua is the newest addition to my "Must Go Again" list."

  • "Me and my fiancee wanted to have a nice seafood dinner with a view and and elegant ambiance. The interior design at Aqua is ultra cool and nice space between tables for intimacy. I like to see people applying their skills (open kitchen) and this was a plus as well. Our waitress Michelle was extremely nice and genuine. I recommend the red snapper grilled whole (head on)...they did a great job maintaining the integrity of the prime materials on hand and not drowning in sauce or spices as is the usual case in Florida and across the USA. The false bananas foster cheesecake was also nicely prepared."

  • "Our party of 5 enjoyed the seafood with a reasonably complete wine list. The dessert menu was disappointingly small. Service was attentive."

  • "Christmas Brunch was a bust. The regular menu was not available. With a 3 PM seating, the Buffett was past it's prime. The roast beef was well done at this point and the stuffed lamb dried out. The grouper was too salty. It was a nice attempt but the food was almost cold. Highlight - pulled pork and rice. The Cabernet sat in the bottle too long and was undrinkable."

  • "First time we tried this restaurant. We ate at 6pm and the restaurant was empty, so there was no excuse for not getting great service, particularly with the price point. Waiter blamed the hostess for giving us the wrong menu when the salad I wanted was not available and blamed the chef for not having the chocolate cake, claiming chef said that it "didn't look good". He never asked our kids what they wanted to drink. My son wanted seared tuna. Waiter said it was only on lunch menu and we asked him to ask the chef - he refused. Paella was overly smokey - sausage overwhelmed the dish. I'm sure that there were good items on the menu, but with so much choice in Tampa, even with the good wine list, we won't be going back."

  • "I went for lunch on Sunday. It was pretty quiet in the restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxing. The burger I had was great. The server was very friendly and accommodating when I asked to sit somewhere where I could plug in my phone so it could charge. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would return if in the area again."

  • "I appreciate the late accomodation, we did not get there until 8:30 sinnce I worked 12 hrs shift in the hospital. The food is like an upscale Boston Market. It diesn't look great but it taste ok, I think because it's been sitting there the whole afternoom, firtd time amd Aqua and I loved the ambience and I think it's better to go there for lunch and happy hour with friends. The outdoor dining seems amazing. I definitely go back."

  • "We all had seafood. Prices reasonable. Smallest calamari serving in town and not very good. All food just average, not special at all. View was lovely."

  • "Went to Aqua for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Saw some of the reviews on Open Table and decided to give it a try. Why don't more people know about this place? The ambiance is wonderful, the food was fantastic, and the service was exceptional. I had scallops, which were perfect. I know many people aren't fans, but they had brussell sprouts (one of my fave vegs) and they were terrific! My husband had the grouper, which he raved about. This place has been added to my list of "don't miss" restaurants in Tampa."

  • "My husband and I were looking for a special and intimate place to celebrate our anniversary. Aqua has a private room insider their wine room with a special lighting and candles that made our experience magical. Service was outstanding with very knowledgeable and friendly server and helper. I'm very picky when ordering Filet Mignon and I only order it at upscale and high recommended steak houses, so I was hesitant to order the filet mignon. To my surprise, the filet mignon was outstanding, so soft it melted in my mouth like butter and it had a superb taste. Best I had so far... Another of my favorite dishes is the Angry Madagascar Prawns. This place is a must try…"

  • "Great location for a business lunch. This was the first restaurant in a very long time that provided a quiet venue where talking wasn't overpowered by piped in music or loud noises. The decor is contemporary and staff very attentive. Food was well prepared and reasonably priced for the location."
