Overall a very satisfying dining experience. Unrushed but attentive service and well prepared, attractive dishes. Loved the Off Beet cocktail, seafood stew and seared ahi. Oh, and the bread pudding.
The food, service and ambience were all fantastic. A wonderful evening.
We arrived for our reservations 5 minutes early and the table was 20 minutes late! Service was horrendous, my husband had a $150 bottle of wine and he had to fill his own glass several times. And to have the 20% service charge automatically added is wrong. What incentive do the servers have to provide good service?
We dine frequently at Aqua and always have a great experience, which is why we return. Our sever was excellent and the main courses well prepared and delicious. They took the lobster mashed potatoes off the menu, and they were very much missed on this visit as the regular mashed potatoes were good but not spectacular, which is the reason for only 4 stars on the food.
I love going to Aqua. The view, staff, and food are always on spot. Save room for the bread pudding.
We had met at this location 40 years ago so it was a memorable anniversary and the restaurant made it special. A well located table, a signed card, attentive staff and a complimentary desert. An expensive date but worth it.
We came here to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday and, as none of us had been here before, we were hoping for a great experience. I'd indicated on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and had requested a table with a view, and we were not disappointed! On top of providing a table with a great view, they also decorated the table top with flower petals and left a birthday card, signed by everyone on staff. Such a nice gesture!
The food was super delicious and our server, Kevin, was amazing. He was so friendly and observant, always there exactly when we needed, but never hovering. Thank you, Aqua, for a wonderful experience for my dad's birthday. He really enjoyed himself and I will definitely recommend this place to friends!!
Always a great experience!
The team at Aqua was fantastic. Amber was great as she helped me with ideas for proposing to my fiancée on New Years Eve while dining at the restaurant. I would highly recommend this place. Thanks a lot Aqua.
Our meal and wine were great. The wine team and the support staff were very helpful and polite.
