Aqua Prime is one of our favorite places. Food is delicious and our service has always been great. Everything that comes out of the bar and kitchen tastes great. Cameron has been our server twice and really does a spectacular job.

We had a dinner reservation, but arrived early. The staff was willing to go ahead and seat us. We had a nice outdoor table. The staff was very accommodating and helpful with menu suggestions. Our dinner was outstanding. From valet to wait staff to chef, everyone was very attentive.

Outside was enjoyable. Was less busy than we expected. Food was good. Blue cheese olives in the martini were a nice touch. Portions could have been bigger.

This was our first visit to Aqua Prime. I was delighted with the inside vibe and loved drinks on the huge outside patio out back. The manger Johnny came over several times to ensure everything was top notch. We will see you all again very soon!

Service was terrible. Server looked and acted bored. Had to ask for any specials. Drink glasses empty never asked if wanted refills until we asked for check. Food was good but poor service means we won’t go back. Price too high to be ignored.

Aqua offers complimentary valet parking. This is a plus since parking can be tight. Overall, great experience. The food was great and the service was even better.
We started with seared scallops. They were great! Drink menu is good, offering multiple options! For the entrees we ordered the hog fish and surf turf. Can’t go wrong with either. The fish was very light and tasty. The filet was cooked to perfection and the lobster was sweet to taste!
Definitely will be returning.

The Fish Spread was very good. The Calamari was soft (different than what I’m used to) and came with breaded zucchini & peppers which were also soft. The Beef Carpaccio was played with a very nice presentation. The Brisket was delicious! Very tender and good portion. The Chicken Piccata was also good served with a delicious fettuccine pasta. Lastly, the Argentina Shrimp were very good. We sat outside in the garden area which was pretty with palm trees and greenery. Would like to see flowering plants in the future. We definitely will return to this restaurant when in the area again.

The place is pretty good. My primary issue was that I ordered a pina colada & it was terrible. Watered down, didn’t taste like coconut or pineapple at all. I took 2 sips & the server never even questioned why it was not drunk. My son had a burger & it was over saturated with toppings so much so he couldn’t eat it. He’s 15 so it shouldn’t have been an issue, but you couldn’t taste the burger at all. The rest of us the food was fine. My crab cake appetizer was wet inside still which indicated it wasn’t cooked through. It was busy but not overly. Maybe an off night....

The food was phenomenal. From the appetizer of oysters to our entrées of prime rib and the salmon salad, it was all delicious. Service was fantastic, attentive without being obnoxious. The only issue was a table with three children that were running amok and being so noisy you couldn’t speak to your own table. Not necessarily the fault of the restaurant but someone should have taken control. We were not the only diners inconvenienced.

Had a reservation fora Thursday night. Wasn’t totally crowded when we arrived. Hostess was unfriendly and vague. Still sat and waited in lobby for 10 minutes to be seated. So sad there was no view. Didn’t realize that until too late. Brought guests from out of town. It was just okay. Won’t be back.
