This was an amazing place to enjoy the beautiful water views and the food is top notch! Fun cocktails and wait staff was friendly and very attentive.
A place you can spend with your special one in a quite and intimate setting. Crab cakes were delicious. For dessert, make sure you get the bread pudding, one of the best one I’ve ever had.
2nd time I've visited Aqua and the experience was exactly what I wanted. Everything was delicious. Also, I am in love with the bread pudding. (A good bread pudding is very difficult to find.) I was very impressed that my Revelers account was automatically available to the server because of the reservation. I made sure I had the card before leaving the house, and I didn't even need it! Big bonus!
Great choice for a special meal, and the service is great.
First time dining here. We had the seared ahi dinner and king crab legs. Got 2 large crab legs, more than enough and the ahi melted in your mouth. So glad we found this place.
This is our second time coming here for our wedding anniversary! The ambiance is great and our server is awesome! Would love to come back here again on summertime!
Excellent food and service. Delicate flavors. We enjoyed our evening and will return on our next visit to seattle.
El Gaucho is our special place, wonderfully romantic and fun! Such amazing food!!!
Great quality. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Overpriced for what it is as far as the food went, I’d say met grille or RN74 or even capital grille would be a better choice, I also made the reservation with a emphasis on it being a special occasion (anniversary) no mention of it during our entire dinner.
Amazing experience at this restaurant. Services was impeccable. Wine was delicious and food was to die for. I only go out to a fine restaurant every few months and this spot was definitely worth the price.
Fantastic seafood with a view in Seattle. And great service. But we are really disappointed that they got rid of their seafood chowder and replaced it with clam chowder. The seafood chowder was exceptional and unique and was one of our favorite things on the menu. The clam chowder has fresh clams on top but otherwise is just regular and nothing to comment about. It left us wondering if the restaurant was slipping a bit. Very sad to see this!
Enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The service was amazing. The dinner was fantastic. Will definitely be back enjoy some dining on the outdoor deck this summer.
Thank you for an amazing evening to celebrate our anniversary. They went above and beyond with flowers on the table and a written card congratulating us. Since this was our first time we decided to try a lot of side dishes and order the filet and lobster entree. The Brussels sprouts and grilled street corn was amazing. Save room for the Best. Bread. Pudding. Ever. I couldn’t get enough! Amazing.
Great place for a special birthday dinner. Service, food, and ambiance were great.
It was a very enjoyable evening.
As always, you can expect excellent service and food here. The crab cakes and Chilean sea bass stole the show. Live music and great view of the water.
Wonderful atmosphere and the food was fantastic! Made our birthday dinner extra special!
Great food, exceptional service.
The chef’s special black cod was amazing - best fish I’ve ever had
Fabulous evening at Aqua!!! Probably some of the best ono I have ever eaten! We loved how our waiter would stoop down to talk to us! I love this restaurant and would go there again anytime!
The vegetarian option was supposed to be fresh curry and vegetables. It was a mess of stalks (literally 2 inch stems from either Kale or chard) and indecipherable chopped vegetables; a tasteless curry; a scoop of rice and a huge mass of fried pita chips. Uninspired; ill prepared and ridiculously expensive. My guest enjoyed his surf and turf which is the only reason I rated the food as fair because without his input the rating would be lower. Very, very disappointing.
As always great meal and excellent service.
We celebrated our anniversary and had a wonderful time. Amazing service, drinks, and especially the food!
My Chilean sea bass too salty and a big disappointment for the price. Plus the bottle of wine we wanted was out/unavailable. Tableside spinach salad ingredients were not equally split
Our second visit to Aqua and once again outstanding.
My girls birthday was LiT bro
If any place gets seafood right, it's Aqua. A number of restaurants in Seattle boast about their seafood, but Aqua is the only place that not only does it well, but does it wonderfully. Their seafood is tender, not tough or overcooked, and retains its flavor.
My business partner & I rewarded two of our managers by bringing them to a favorite spot of ours and it did not disappoint. Sterling service by Sarah and the sommellier (whose name I don't recall) as well as their support crew, fantastic wine, and fantastic food; impeccable. I've always taken friends and family to all of the the other "El Gaucho" locations (Tacoma, Bellevue, Portland and 1st Ave in Seattle)and continue for these same reasons, never a hiccup. The opportunity to have all the best of the steakhouse along with great fresh northwest seafood, combined with such a setting on the waterfront makes Aqua a treasure.
We had friends visiting Seattle for the first time and wanted to bring them to the best restaurant in Seattle. We were not disappointed! Service was impeccable and Chef does a wonderful job of adjusting the menu to take advantage of the Pacific Northwest seasons. Scallops with butternut squash risotto was amazing!!! Another delicious meal at Aqua!
We had reservations but had to wait a little while. The service was very good, seafood was done perfectly and sides were not outstanding but good as well.
