Everything as always was wonderful.

That being said....

Providing cardboard boxes for the doggie bags is unacceptable. Period.
What could the cost difference be between the previous "metal" pans with plastic lids vs cardboard be?

The new containers do not provide the right container for sauces,
or in fact anything which we took home.

So, the lobster ravioli, salad etc etc was soaked into the cardboad (again - yuch).

Please please please, correct this problem asap.

We both love your food and service but this, because we now have smaller appetites
is totally unacceptable.


be well

We were in town visiting friends, they love Acquolina, it is their favorite restaurant. We went on a Sunday evening, it was a bit quiet, as we had an 8:15 reservation, plus it was St. Paddy's but, I had heard via our friends that the place is jumping on a Friday and Saturday evening with quite the bar scene. The restaurant was really nice inside, the service was excellent as was the food. The next time we are back in the area we will surely go back.

A must visit for anyone visiting the greater Weston area. I have eaten here before, so I asked my wife to bring our daughter and two teen-age daughters who were visiting from Texas....and were they impressed with the food and service! My wife and I had our usual veal dish and Caesar salad, but the others had various pasta dishes. The teenagers ate every bite and asked for dessert: shared tiramisu. My wife, daughter, and I shared the fruit dessert , as well as a nice pinot noir. Our guests are planning a return visit in the summer, and they asked to come back to Acquolina….and of course we will!!

We make a trip to Florida every year. There are so many chain restaurants and we are not fans. We have visit Acqualina every year on our last night as our "fancy" dinner. We sit outside and enjoy the fresh air, lighting around the trees and the fountain in the water.

Always get the grilled octopus app, delicious!! Also, did baked oysters this time, they were great! The short ribs were delicious and the potatoes that accompanied them were out of this world!

I’ve been going there since they opened years ago, and cannot believe I never ordered the salmon before. It’s delish. I always know I’m going to get a high quality, delicious, and consistent meal there. Highly recommend.

Excellent food. I have visited this Restaurant many times and it was a special night -36 marriage anniversary which was specified when making the reservation using this application. Thought would’ve offer a cordial by the house or the dessert. Not that I need anything free but could be a nice thought after visiting so many times their restaurant- which again maybe they have no clue we go there so much since we have never met the owners like in other places we go. Will keep going as it’s one of my favorite restaurant

This is a must try restaurant if you are looking for a "high end" Italian restaurant in the greater Weston area. Lots of energy in this place, both at the bar and the general dining area. Not only is the food outstanding but the portions are generous, as well. For example, the half portion of the Caesar salad or the strawberry salad are easily shareable. My wife had a half portion of one of the veal dishes, and I had a half portion of a pasta dish that was more than adequate for both. Perfect martini...wine selection was also very good. The only thing that kept us from giving a 5 is that food was presented very late after ordering, but the manager did a nice service recovery. We will eat here again soon.

We have eaten at this restaurant for 10 years and every time has been a culinary service experience of excellence. We don’t know if the ownership has changed hands, however it was a completely different restaurant experience for us. The bottle of wine which was a HONIg Cabernet was rancid. All the restaurant did was to replace the bottle and then didn’t offer us any other courtesy or discount. The quality of the foodWhich is usually 10 was only six. When we got the bill it was $200. When I looked at the 20% amount to tip instead of it being $40 it was approximately $57. Every calculation of tip from 18, 20 and 22% waa over stated. in my opinion, overstated on purpose by the restaurant by at least another 8 to 10%. It was a mathematically created error in their system to get people to over tip. I think open table should look into this. Thanks

My husband and I went on Valentines Day. We wanted to avoid set menus, crowds and being rushed in and out so we chose a late lunch. Our reservation was for 2:15. As soon as we sat we explained to our server that we like to take our time and order as we go. He said no problem. We then ordered a bottle of champagne. After looking over the menu we chose our appetizers and ordered a bottle of wine that we would have later with our main course. Yes we like to indulge after all it was Valentine’s Day. We hadn’t received our appetizers yet and the server advises us to order because the kitchen closes at 3. It’s 2:45 and we just said that we like to take our time. No one mentioned that the kitchen closes from 3-5. We wouldn’t have gone there at all. I asked the server since we haven’t even got our appetizers yet or ordered our salad course does our food just sit in the window. He said no we will bring it out. So essentially the very thing we were avoiding was going to happen. We called the Mgr. after explaining our disappointment. He informed us he wasn’t a mind reader and didn’t know we wanted to take our time. Since we didn’t want to order yet and the chef was not willing to stay longer he basically picked up our tab and suggested after our appetizers we should go somewhere else. That was the only thing they did right. And the worst part was the appetizers were delicious. We ended up going somewhere else. Shouldn’t someone have been smart enough to tell us in the 1st place. We literally told the server as soon as we sat down we were celebrating. Come on people. Maybe stop taking reservations at 1:45 or 2.

Our waiter was extremely rude because we requested to order our appetizer without giving him our main entrees. Instead of checking back in 10 minutes like you’d expect he seemed to avoid our table out of spite. Totally unnecessary. We weren’t in a hurry and didn’t see what the big deal was and we had a later reservation so no one was waiting for our table either. Otherwise good food. A shame to be treated that way.

Food and service was excellent. The bread was yummy. Family size Caesar Salad was perfect for our party of four. Shrimp scampi was excellent,- 5 large shrimp and plenty of garlic. Lasagna was excellent as were the veal dishes we ordered. We all took food home even though we ordered the half portions. Next time we will request seating away from the bar which was loud. Looking forward to going back.

We had been at Acquolina on New Years Eve And had a surprisingly good experience considering the holiday. We were able to eat on the outside deck and had a beautiful table. So we came back with friends because their food was exceptionally good. Best veal we’ve tasted in a long time.

This time the outside was closed and the table set up inside meant everyone is sitting on top of their neighbors. A very loud restaurant with no place to sit quietly and enjoy such a good meal. You could barely hear the two people sitting across the table.

Although the food was exceptionally once again the seating will make me think twice before going back unless the outside is available.
