Great view and food
As hotel guests we had 1 dinner and 1 breakfast here, both were great. We loved the view while we ate, the decor was very nice, breakfast buffet a good value as it includes beverages and the piano player at dinner was very nice. The salad with fresh strawberries, blueberries and honey drizzle was outstanding.

5 star hotel with a 5 star brunch!
An absolutely wonderful experience! The food was amazingly delicious. Awesome variety, the carving station, pasta station, omelette station & dessert stations we all just perfect. The hotel is beautiful, the service was courteous & highly professional. The Easter Sunday brunch at the Westin will be an annual event for our family!

Dining at Aqua Star a Delight
We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch @ Aqua Star at The Westin Savannah Golf Resort & Spa on April 7, 2013. It was the absolute best brunch we have ever had. There are so many options to select from including salads, fresh fruit, an omelet station, seafood, the best grits ever and a dessert area that is to die for. I would highly recommend. It is located in a beautiful Westin Hotel on the water. The gardens are terrific. We also enjoyed the jazz music while we ate our brunch. A perfect special occassion place to dine or if you are just looking for an excellent brunch.

When I first tried Aqua Star it was as a matter of convenience -- it was the closest spot on hand -- but I have had pretty mediocre experiences with hotel restaurants in the past so my expectations were low. What a surprise! I dine out quite a bit in nice restaurants for work and this is in my top 5 overall, and is tied for my favorite spot in Savannah. Everything I have had there over the course of a half dozen visits has been outstanding. The service is professional and efficient. The view of the water is lovely. The environment is soothing. I look forward to dining at Aqua Star each year when I go to Savannah for meetings.

It is about time Savannah had an awesome "epicurean seafood" dining option. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The food was outstanding, the atmosphere and service were excellent. The restaurant reminded us of one of the really nice high end restaurants you might see in Miami or New York. The only difference is that it was not as crowded as you might find in other larger cities. Overall nothing but praise for what the chef prepared and the amazing variety on the buffet. Also, the view of the Savannah river from the dining room is breath taking. Will definitely go back, well worth the price!

We celebrated 48yrs. of Marriage
Aqua Star did an excellent job of helping us celebrate 48 yrs. of marriage. Our waiter Zack was very helpful in assisting us with a wine that paired very well with our dinners.
Zack surprised us with a dessert and two glasses of champagne to top off our delightful evening. The food, the service, the fantastic view of the harbor all make this a fantastic place to celebrate a special event in your life.
5/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a delighful Brunch and will definitely go back when I return to Georgia. The person I went to visit loved the brunch and is going to bring her family there very soon.

We celebrated our friends 49th wedding Anniversary at the lovely Aqua Star! We enjoyed the live piano playing very much! The wine was great the food was amazing! The view of the grounds and the river is the best! The staff even treated us to a complimentary glass of champagne! We had a GRAND experience and want to say bravo and thanks again to a great restaurant!

Father's Day Brunch!
The selection of food was awesome, with many stations ranging from hot sliced meats, poached fish, egg omelets, pancakes, crepes, salads, lox and other tasty items such as tongue, caviar, cheeses and fresh fruit. Aqua Star was listed on Savannah Menu as offering members a 10% discount. Upon showing my Savannah Menu card, I was told they did not honor my card. So I just happened to have the list in my purse, which I showed the waiter. He took it to management, they promptly photocopied it and
told all waiters to honor the Savannah Menu card!!

The food was great, I had the scallops perpaired in duck fat. Service was great too. My only complaint and its a minor one, is the strange fast tempo music they played during dinner.

A Unique Dining Experience
The staff was very friendly & professional but not 100% on the spot, (in their defense, it was quite busy that evening). The ambiance and vibe was very trendy; being from Savannah it felt like being in a different city which we found refreshing and fun. The food was delicious and presented well. I found the chimichurri slightly overwhelmed the flavor of my steak, otherwise it was done to perfection. The cheese cake was not what I expected, it had a decidedly nutty southern twist, very good, but not the luscious NY style that I was expecting. The view was amazing—while were were dining, several ships passed by and the lighted skyline across the river was beautiful! All in all it was a wonderful dining experience. One we hope to repeat.

One of Savannah's Best Offerings
The Aqua Star offers a memorable dining experience with its excellent menu and high level of service. The dining room has been redecorated handsomely, and the river views offer a very inviting spot to dine. The food is always superb and nicely presented. Our sautéed scallops with mushroom risotto were outstanding, as was the spice-rubbed strip steak with wasabi mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus.
The waitstaff is fully prepared to assist with making choices, as they are well versed on the ingredients and preparation of each dish. Our waitress gave us impeccable service throughout our meal.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keeps calling me back
Aside from the great food, the newly redecorated Aqua Star and the bar are an inviting spot for dining anytime. The wait staff knows every detail about the featured dishes on the menu, and they can answer any questions as to preparation and ingredients. We happened to take guest this week who were dining at the Aqua Star for the first time. They thoroughly enjoyed everything about their dining experience.
Having dined at the Aqua Star on three occasions in the last month, I can honestly say that they are consistent. Many restaurants fall short the second time around, but not the Aqua Star.

I reside in Savannah, GA and was looking for a different experience. My friend and I got on the free ferry and went to dinner at Aqua Star. The food was amazing! The service was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant. I really enjoyed the softly played live music and the ferry ride over topped it if. I would recommend it to many of our visiting tourists.

This restaurant has been a Brunch special for our family for some time. We enjoy the quality and quantity of food. Along with the exceptional service. When visiting Savannah our special out-of-town guests request the Sunday Brunch at the Westin. Seating reservations for special areas (windows) are also enjoyable. The staff as always were extremely polite and on their "A" game. We lacked for nothing. Our guests requested that when they return to Savannah that they revisit The Westin and of course the Aqua Star for Sunday Brunch. I would and do recommend the Aqua Star Sunday Brunch if folks enjoy fine dining and great Ambience.
Thank you again for the wonderful experience.

Worth going over the bridge
We have dined at the Aqua Star a few times and it has always delivered. Yes, you have to go over the bridge which adds time to the trip. But once you get there, parking is complimentary for dinner patrons. It's always nice to participate in the "vacation" feeling that permeates a nice hotel. The restaurant is very nicely decorated (like the rest of the hotel) and the view spectacular. We usually ask for a table by the window. The cuisine is refined and delicious, portions are delicately reasonable in most instances. Servers are well trained and friendly. The restaurant is never crowded and it's quiet and romantic. It usually participates in Restaurant Week, which is a good time to try it. Also, check out its special discounts for locals.

Brunch with Jazz - Life is Good!
What a great brunch place. It starts at 1130 with 3 great Jazz players in the background and lots of food choices. Seafood being the main food group. There are salads, breakfast entries such as eggs benedict, omelets with fixings and waffles, seafood of big fresh cold shrimp and raw oysters, cooked oysters, smoked oysters, mussels, bagels & lox... etc ALL the food was tasty and fresh and oh so good!
The servers were friendly, efficient and professional. Mimosas come with the meal but can't be served until 1230 - new GA alcohol law on Sundays now. We were seated by a window upon request and had a great view of the river and the ferry boat making its rounds.
Very pricy..3 ppl $111.00 total.ouch. But I will go back for special occ.

My she-crab soup was absolutely wonderful as was my scallop dish. My husband, however, was unimpressed with the Caesar salad which contained a tomato, of all things. He said that the dressing tasted commercial...and he is a Caesar salad aficionado.
(As he only tasted it, the waitress removed it from the bill without our asking. A class act.) He did enjoy his seafood pot pie although the top crust (while impressive) came off whole and did not break apart easily. Service was excellent. Wine selection by the glass was limited, but we did enjoy those that were available. Dining room was lovely, and there were few patrons on this Friday night, so the noise level was a non-issue.. All-in-all, a good dining experience on the whole.

I was looking for a delicious romantic dinner for my boyfriend and I and was not disappointed with Aquastar. We had a lovely view of Savannah River and the Westin's Christmas decorations from our table. Lights reflecting on the water at night was beautiful. The service was perfectly paced so we could enjoy conversation without being rushed. I had the scallops with risotto and it was great. The cheesecake dessert was okay, not the best but satisfying. Ambience was great and noise was very minimal; however we were there on a Monday night and only a few other scattered patrons were present. Overall, great experience. Exactly what I was looking for.

We had a wonderful meal, the Beef Wellington was to die for!! Awesome range of food, we were very impressed with it and the beautiful presentation. Our only complaint was our stomach was not big enough to do thirds of everything lol. Very happy customers, Thank you!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went there for thanksgiving. Everything was superb. They did, however, lose my credit card for 25 minutes while w waited for them to fun it. Unfortunately, we had a one year old with us. Overall, exceptional food and service.

I reserved the brunch for my friend's birthday. Everything went quite well.

great for a christmas lunch
we took my mother for lunch on her 77th birthday. they gave us a lovely table and the serive was nice. I did try to call 3 times the day before and that morning and try to arrange a birthday dessert they never answered the phone. The app was wonderful but the chicken on the salad and the turkey where so dry it was not very tasty. We did have 2 small ones with us and their food was very good and the received special attention from our server. I would go again but this time to the brunch. The entire Hotel was decorated lovely for Christmas actually over the top beautiful. We live in Savannah but I always feel like im on a small vacation when I go to The Westin.

Aqua Star Lunch on December 5, 2013
Met a special friend for lunch at Aqua Star on December 5th. It is the ideal spot for a quiet lunch meeting, the food is fantastic the service friendly and attentive and the view is spectacular! One of my favorite lunch places in all of Savannah!

A bit pricey, but an outstanding culinary experience. Have been visiting the Sunday brunch for years and the high quality with a wide variety of selection has been maintained. Complimentary champaign from 12:30pm onwards.

Best Brunch buffet in Savannah
The seafood Jazz brunch is a must if you are visiting Savannah. The Chef even came to our table to make sure we had tried all that was available. And there are a plethora of delights from the main chef station with paella and filet mignon to the omelet and pasta stations, the charcuterie, seafood, and hot breakfast fare stations and of course do not skip dessert. They even had a station making Bananas Foster! And what better way to enjoy a Sunday in Savannah than sitting with a picture perfect view on the river while listening to a lovely jazz ensemble?! The food was imaginative and far better than you would expect at a buffet of any kind and the service was unobtrusive yet fastidious.
12/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the seafood potpie and it is one of the best ever things I've ever eaten! It was so full of shrimp, lobster, scallops and crab that it was worth every penny of the price! My friend had a filet and lobster combo where the filet could be cut with your fork it was so tender and cooked to perfection. It's right on the river so the view is fabulous and the service was excellent.
