This was the nicest place to celebrate my birthday. The live Jazz music, the wonderful service, the delicious food makes it easy to recommend the Aqua Star to everyone I know. The special treatment granted to me, with the wonderful birthday cake and the happy birthday song by the musicians was super nice. I had a great time. The wait staff made me feel like I was special. They even encourage my family to not only enjoy the food and music but take time to enjoy each other. SPECIAL PLACE!!!

We were greeted by the hostess, Mr Charles. He accommodated our wish by getting us a window seat. Very sharp & down to earth great guy! Caleena was our waitress. She was very attentive & made us feel very special while we were celebrating our 25th anniversary. She picks up right where we left off last year. We got the breakfast buffet & we both had a omelet made to order & is was on point! We enjoy this restaurant so much we are planning on stopping back by eat Tuesday on our way back from Florida back home to NC

We were treated to quiet window seat overlooking the river. Mohammad was very courteous and knowledge about the menu. I chose the Savannah Pot Pie and my wife enjoyed the Skuna Bay Salmon. We also enjoyed the table side conversation of his European travels throughout dinner.

It’s been a while since we enjoy every course with guttural noise: hmmmm, describe the higher level of gourmet, venue, service, live piano, special menu and details. No disappointments here, prices according to what you get. 5 stars Savannah...

The Sunday Jazz Brunch is wonderful, and includes both meat and vegetarian options. There is a "live" singer who takes requests, and the waterfront view is spectacular. The dress code is casual though most people wore "Sunday Best" outfits. While it is a bit pricey at $50 per adult, the buffet has a wide variety of breakfast and lunch items to select from on the brunch menu.

Outstanding service. Table for 2 was very close to another table for 2. More space between the two tables would be appreciated. The closeness of the tables restricted conversation.

We made the wise decision to make a reservation for this restaurant and the food proved to be worth it! We had a wait time for our food because the restaurant had a very large party, however when it was delivered it was hot and the french fires were very crunchy and tasty. Our server highly recommended the fries and she was absolutely correct! I had the Bacon Cheeseburger and fries, my tablemates had the fish sandwich and soft Shrimp Tacos with slaw. Everyone enjoyed their respective lunches with all of us agreeing that we ate more that we should have but the food was tasty and we enjoyed every bite.

We were at a table near the window and had a view of the river. We were very fortunate to have sunny clear weather which enhanced an already great experience. I would definitely go there again!

Aqua Star at the Westin is a Hidden Gem!! First off the view is something that not only can you not find anywhere in the city because of the location, but the view also has to be up there with the best dining views in the entire country. The service was spectacular! From start to finish every need was anticipated, and the bartender provided us with some samples of a local whiskey and spoke about them which was smart because we did not know until the sever told us that we could purchase alcohol drinks in to go cups - an awesome thing about Savannah is you can drink wherever you want! Having that last cocktail on the ferry we for sure knew we found one of the best if not the best restaurant in Savannah. Truly world class. Oh, and the food...everything was on point, they even have healthy options which were all fabulous. Thank you Aqua Star!!

I typically go to brunch with my daughter and son in law. Our reservations are always at 11:30 before the church crowd. The food is outstanding! The live jazz added a nice touch and the service was amazing.

These are the reasons we keep coming back!!

I have an positive experience every time I go to aqua star. The food is good but the service is exceptional! We celebrated our youngest's daughter's 1st birthday with family brunch. Charles greeted us kindly, remembering us from the year prior (another daughter's birthday). He took time to set up a great table for our party of 6. Our waitress, Leah, took great care of us. The buffet was clean and fresh. Charles and Leah brought Patrice, an exceptional vocal artist that works in service at the restaurant, to our table to sing a beautiful "happy birthday" song for Margaret. The jazz band was entertaining but not over-powering. A great time had by all! Thank you Charles, Leah and Patrice! We will be back again soon.

Came to the buffet with family and friends. Enjoyed the food, drink and view. The buffet was bountiful and delicious. Plenty for all who come and enjoy. Pancakes, omelets, bananas foster made to order. Live jazz band was not too loud so we could still have a conversation. Services was on top of it. They validate parking too.

We came here to celebrate my bf bday and to visit our kids that lives in Fort Stewart. We had a spectacular time. Shout out to our server Reny outstanding food, service and staff. We didn’t really mind giving a “big tip” because it’s all worth it. They accommodate all what we requested. The view, the ambience and the jazz music are all perfect for a good fellowship with your love ones. Highly recommends the place.

The food today was not as tasty as it has been on our previous visits. Perhaps the holidays ushered in temp staff or they were slammed due to tourists. Either way, the service is always impeccable, and we will always return for this lovely brunch. I would love to see friendlier station employees. They act bothered if you ask for anything from them, yet that is why they are there. The banana foster station is always my favorite, but this time he used about 1/2 stick of butter for our tiny pan, and the end result tasted burnt. I don't know what happened, but maybe more training is needed. Our wait staff was amazing and kind, and the assistant manager was a funny guy. Thanks for all you do!

The service was poor,( I do not think it crossed the waitress mind to ask me if I wanted coffee or a cocktail) So I stepped over to the bar and ordered my own drink. The Bartender also was very inexperienced. Then my soup came out cold 3 times. But to me the hints of BAD management. To many things not right for what is suppose to be a high end restaurant in a Westin Resort Hotel.

Very typical “hotel” brunch/holiday buffet. A huge amount of choices but everything was very average and quite a lot had obviously been sitting out for quite some time.

To start, Edwin did an amazing job taking care of us and making us feel right at home. The Christmas buffet was perfect for my guests, but I was missing a steak - though the braised short ribs and prime rib were close... The food was pretty good, overall, though the desserts left more to be desired... Thank you Aqua Star for taking care of my family on Christmas.

Our first time there- in addition to spending $79 per person, we had to pay for parking. We weren’t seated in the same room with the jazz band, we could only listen from the other room But the food was excellent and the jazz band was very good! The staff was very friendly and brought mimosas around to the guest while waiting to be seated.

I looked forward to enjoying this Christmas jazz buffet with family and was exceptionally disappointed by the experience. The quality of the food was subpar. They displayed oysters in heaping quantity on top of each other with very little ice this causing the oysters to be warm and stale. The fish and chicken selections were dry and over cooked. The sushi was of poor quality. There were no roasted vegetables nor vegetable options. The selection overall was poor in quality and taste closer to what you would find at a Denny’s. The only saving grace was the jazz trio which was wonderful. We almost missed them as at first we were seated at an auxiliary room and then moved upon my request. The servers would ask us to keep our dirty forks for future returns to the buffet. The service was slow and you would find that it would take long for your dirty plates to be cleared for your next course. With tax and tip we spent over $450 for our family of four. This was very short of what we would expect for this price.

Food was very average. The only thing that wowed me was the $300+ tab for four people (six drinks total). Our waiter got one of the food orders completely wrong. So, one of our party watched while the others ate. Received an apology but no comps, not even an offer of a free drink. The restaurant did manage to add a 20% tip at the end of the evening, apparently still not felling embarrassed by their service. Would not do it again!

We have visited many times and especially enjoyed this occasion because the ambience was great. In the past they have had a very loud band and you could not hear others talking at your own table during brunch.

A very comfortable and well appointed dining room, overlooking the waterfront. The service was excellent and our meal choice was fantastic. I know there are many wonderful food choices in Savannah's waterfront district, and Aqua Star is certainly one of them.

I was a bit disappointed with the Thanksgiving buffet. The spread was impressive, but almost all the food was too cold to ewnjoy. Except for the turkey, the roast pork, and the "create your own pasta" bar, everything else was not even lukewarm: in fact the strings beans were too cold to even eat. We explained that to the host who then told us a manager would come over and address our concern, but, no one showed up. For $70, I would have expected a better quality buffet with actual HOT FOOD. So no, I would nt do it again n or recommend it.

The host was attentive though, the music was excellent, the desserts were not bad.

We were so amazed at the friendliness of all staff we encountered. It felt genuine. The food and presentation were so well done, and we were thrilled with the jazz. It was a special day for us, and was made more special by the staff who gave up their Thanksgiving to make ours a wonderful event.
