    Nice place, excellent fresh fish, and other food, great service, and a very nice screened in porch facing the street.  This restaurant is located a block off the waterfront, which I think maybe makes it a little bit better for food and service!

    They went above and beyond to help me celebrate my birthday. When we arrived a birthday card signed by the whole staff was at the table, I received a complimentary drink, appetizer, and dessert. Sarah was a terrific waitress and they provided a great experience for all of our group. They brought my niece coloring sheets and a box of 64 crayons to enjoy while we ordered. Lovely experience and amazing food! Would recommend to anyone!

    Aqua was an outstanding dinner experience! From the wine, to the tapas, to the small and large plates, it was a fantastic treat. We put this on our top 5 meals ever!

    We loved the crabcake w/ mushroom small plate. The udon buckwheat noodles with tuna, shrimp, scallops and veggies had the perfect blend of sweet coconut milk and Thai spices for a lil kick. So delicious!
