We had made a reservation for 10 people for New Years Eve. The service was horrible. The wait time for food and drinks was way too long. We were told they did not have enough staff that night. They should not have accepted reservations if they were not fully staffed. We had a very unpleasant experience.

My husband & I went for dinner on New Year's Eve around 7:30pm & quite frankly I'm surprised this place wasn't busting at the seams! The atmosphere was pleasant, the staff was polite & helpful, the prices were very reasonable & the food was absolutely delicious!!! I will definitely be going back & have already been spreading the word on what a great place this is!

We had not been to Aqua Blue for quite a while, but when looking for a place in the nearby area (to avoid long distance driving on New Year's Eve) we decided to revisit Aqua Blue.

The food options were good. One of our friends has Celiac and has to eat Gluten Free, and that was accommodate nicely. The salmon was very good, the short ribs excellent (but the root vegetables served with were "OK") and my friends' dishes looked good as well. They were out of one of the desserts (and we were early for seatings so it was not because it got ordered up earlier) and the coffee on the first round had to be sent back - it looked like weak tea.

The low point for us was that our very nice and very friendly waitress was obviously a heavy smoker and every visit to our table was just gross. I'm a former smoker, and I understand what that's like but when you're serving high end food and wine, please buy some Febreeze or something to use after a smoke break. It put a damper on the evening. The waitress told us that the restaurant would be closing for a couple of months for renovation. I might try it again on a non-Holiday just to compare.

You can't beat the all you can eat sushi.
Unbelievably fresh. So amazing! M-F ... my favorite lunch spot and the price is unreal. Staff all works together to take great care of their customers.

Aqua Blue is nearby, parking is easy and we usually don't have any problem making a last minute reservation. I hate to hand the keys to my 911 to an idiot valet as is the case at other places these days but, thankfully not there. The exterior is not particularly impressive and the inside needs a refresh but don't let that deter you. The dining experience, cocktails and food preparation is consistent and a several notches above average. In our experience the management and wait staff is always friendly and goes out of their way to please. The sushi is excellent and the rest of the menu top to bottom is better than you are likely to find for the price in the area. My wife and I have dined there often for many years and I will continue........unless they insisting on valet parking.

Were met by two happy, highly engaged wait staff. Food was plentiful and delicious. LOVED the fact that we could bring our own bottle of wine without a corking fee. Will absolutely be coming back. Thank you for running an honest restaurant that delivers great good at outstanding value.

We were looking forward to the $10 all you can eat sushi. Poor quality sushi. My friend found a piece of plastic in her rolled sushi which the manger tried to say was from the packaging. He didn't offer her a new plate or to change the sushi. She then found a second piece in the same roll. Obviously she didn't continue to eat. No apologies - kind of blew her off and left the dirty plate at our table the entire lunch. Small servings. We each ordered an OMG roll and instead of the full order they split it between us. Wouldn't go back!

Wonderful meal. Excellent service.
Restaurant was very willing to make both veggie and sauce substitutions to please our palates.
Reasonably priced.
Will certainly go there again.
