The food is excellent, some
The food is excellent, some of the best in the area. Chef takes a lot of pride in his dishes and it shows, unique and vibrant. Everything is made in house, including the goat cheese! If the service could be upgraded to reach the same level of the food it would be 5 stars across the board. The food makes it very much worth the visit.

One of my favorite spots for
One of my favorite spots for lunch in the sun in San Diego. Central, easy parking, quiet and beautiful view of the bay. The tuna tartar with avocado is really delicious.

My partner's steak and fries were a little cold, but the Manager was going to take care of it but we didn't want to do that. So, he comped our desserts. Overall, a good expierence! :)

Acqua provided a very enjoyable
Acqua provided a very enjoyable dining experience for us while we were in town visiting family and friends. We would recommend it and definitely go back the next time we are in the San Diego area. We started out the evening on the patio with wine and appetizers. We then moved inside for an excellent dinner. Great selection on the menu and from the bar. After dinner, we moved our party back outside for after-dinner drinks and dessert. We enjoyed the very scenic atmosphere of Mission Bay while sitting around the large fire-pits provided on the patio. It was a full evening and one that everyone enjoyed and will remember.

I have at the Acqua for several years now, primarily for lunch with clients..It is a great venue for this because the tables are not too close together and the noise level is just right so that we can hear each other without the fear of someone eavesdropping on our conversation.. The food is always excellent, the service is great, and there is a choice of either sitting indoor or outdoor. The outdoor experience is wonderful overlooking Mission Bay. Also, I find the chairs to be very comfortable which is hard to find with outdoor dining. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great for a special lunch
I had the five spice butternut squash soup with lobster and cream. It was a small bowl and I could have eaten a gallon of it! The chocolate mousse dessert was divine and a sight to behold! A little more expensive than the average lunch, but being right on the bay was worth it!

I would recommend with reservations
I would recommend with reservations, and here is why: the service was horrible and even rude. The food was absolutely outstanding and creative and plentiful. Rolls were delicious, salads wonderful, entrees absolutely wonderful and creative and large! Even dessert was outstanding. For staying at the hotel, this is an easy choice! However, we did not see our waiter for 20 minutes once we got seated. If it weren't for Alex the busser, we would not have known anyone even knew we were there. Our waiter never told us the specials. (I learned them AFTER we had ordered by over hearing another waiter tell her table.) I don't think all the service is bad, but consider yourself warned. Do eat here, but be on top of the service issue.

A great experience.
All categories of our experience were amazing. The restaurant manager and the staff all did a great job of our party of 8 people.
The food was all fabulous. They were very efficient, friendly, and created a beautiful evening for us. I am sure that all of us in the group will come back again for more dining.

Great Hotel Restaurant...Great Food
Stayed at San Diego Hilton Resort. Ate lunch at Acqua and had really fresh tasting salads. Decided to do dinner later that evening. Ordered several appetizers and they were delicious. This was one of the top three meals I've had at a hotel restaurant. More importantly, it really was great tasting food along with the view of Mission Bay. Highly recommend it!

Acqua - nice
The lay out, architecture, ambience, presentation of food and exemplary customer service speaks for itself. A well designed and managed restaurant. We will return!
