    We had very enjoyable service and food. The tables for two at the front are great to keep you away from the roar of the main dining room. Just don't take a table with the seat out in the aisle ( just an observation-somewhat dangerous). We both had fish and both choices were very good. Even the decaf coffee as good!

    So we are not eating fish people usually, but wow they changed our minds. The baked rainbow trout was amazingly savory with generous portioned sides. The Vidalia crusted founder had the most amazing risotto with corn and lobster. Only wish the fish was more crusted rather than only large onion strings on top. We ordered the Mac-n-cheese side, but the sides with the two dishes were so amazing we barely touch it. We did make room for dessert which didn’t disappoint. The key lime was wonderful and slightly tart. The banana foster bread pudding was some of the best bread pudding I’ve had in along time. We will be going back.

    We went to Aqua Grill for our 9th anniversary. I made the reservations on line and requested a table outside near the water, and they set us up perfectly! Great weather, amazing food and service, and picturesque view. We will definitely go back and highly recommend the Aqua Grill for special occasions or just a GREAT night out for an amazing meal.

    This is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. I live just north of Orlando but my partner and I decided to go have a really delicious meal at Aqua Grill. The fish was outstanding both mine which was the halibut with the pad Thai underneath and my partner got the grouper with shrimp and mashed potatoes. Everything was perfectly seasoned and our server Megan was outstanding !

    The food was not worth the price. My scallops and linguine we dry. We ordered a charcuterie board and it was delivered the same time as the meal and was really below our expectations. Best thing from the evening was our waitress. One of the the other dishes we ordered had fish bones in it from the salmon and shrimp pasta. Not happy. $200+ Before tip and two out of four of our party left without eating their entree. We will not be coming back.

    This is our second time dining at Aqua Grill and both occasions we have had the distinct pleasure of being waited on by Johnny. We were greeted promptly and the evenings specials were throughly explained. My wife had a couple of delicious margaritas and I had lots of fun ordering a couple of Brazilian housewives. My wife and I both ordered fish specials and several apps including deviled eggs that were fantastic, Brussels sprouts and a salad. The food was all excellent and perfectly timed so we had a wonderful pace to the evening. We never felt hurried and never felt like we were waiting either. I give this credit to Johnny our server as he was always close by, clearly busy but never flustered. He took time to make our daughter feel special and even recommend desserts based on her wants which was sweet. The food here is great but we will definitely be back for the service that we received.

    Overall, the food was great as usual, however the chicken picatta on the menu was bizarre. Chicken Picatta is thin pieces of chicken, sauteed in oil and butter, added chicken broth, white wine, lemons and capers. I obviously didn't read the description of it on the menu. The added red peppers, mushrooms, lack of lemon and hardly any capers, not to mention the thick piece of chicken were too much and I had to send it back. My husband's scallops on the other hand were wonderful and we'll definitely return. We've eaten there many times and it's always good. This is the first time I ever sent anything back.
