    The food was great as was the service. The restaurant is well-appointed in dark contemporary woods. On this, our first visit, the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. Will definitely be on our favorites list when in Jacksonville.

    Aqua Grill has the best short rib dinner in town. The boneless rib was fork tender and packed with flavor. I would have liked a little more of the delicious gravy. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her swordfish. The creme brulee and key lime pie desserts were good but not standouts.

    Loved all the unique dishes and the service was outstanding. A wonderful view of a pond from the deck of the restaurant was an added bonus. Would highly recommend the banana fosters bread pudding. That was a winner at the end of dinner.

    Everything we ate was excellent. We ate the Fried Fresh New England Clam Strips, Bang Bang Wild Alaskan Cod, and the Baked Trout. The tables are a little tight on the inside, but outside looks like they had more room. They were setting up the private room for a dinner and we fel the staff could have been a little quieter in doing so. Overall, excellent food and drink.

    The scallops were salty and overcooked. I switched plates with my date and could not eat the halibut that he chose, it was rubbery. Needless to say, I went without dinner.

    My wife and I frequent the Aqua Grill because of its wonderful atmosphere, great service and great food. However since we are retired we usually go during the week. Going on a Sunday was a real eye opener. They have a happy hour with live music on the deck during the time we were there. The music was loud, the patrons were drunk and it totally ruined the wonderful ambiance we were used to. We will stick to weekday dining at this wonderful restaurant.

    All the food was great, however they put together a shrimp cocktail for us, as it is not normally on the menu, but the shrimp were small and limp. Not very nice. Otherwise the rest of the dinner was great.

    Made reservations in advance but were still seated at the table next to kitchen door and walkway for service staff to terrace Main courses have way too many sauces and ingredients The dishes get muddled and you cannot recognize the main protein For these prices let quality ingredients speak for themselves

    I have been here before and really enjoyed it. The service was top notch, as was the meal. However, after my experience tonight I’m not sure I will go back. It was obvious from the start that my server did not want to be bothered. When I sat down she immediately asked for my drink order. I’d not had a chance to look at the menu, so I asked her to give me a moment. 30 minutes later she came back to check on my drink order. After 45 minutes, I had only a glass of wine in front of me. The salad I ordered to begin my meal never arrived. My server never offered to check on it because she didn’t check in on me. When my entree arrived and I reminded her I’d ordered a salad she just said “oh okay, I’ll get it now”. She seemed disinterested and aloof. It was so disappointing! I finished my entree and left.

    The food was fantastic - I was very impressed. Our table was tucked just outside of the door so traffic was pretty heav back and forth. It took a long time to have a server take our order although once she arrived, she was fantastic. We’re already planning our next visit.
