Aqua Ratings and Reviews
This was our second time at Aqua. The first time, the food was very good, and we enjoyed our experience very much. However, this time, the food was not as good, some under cooked, some over cooked. The mac/cheese - which was previously a great dish, was bland, and cold on arrival. Also, for a Holiday (Thanksgiving), a buffet is fine, but they limited the time of the buffet from 3-6 pm; which limited access to some of the menu items (turkey, pumpkin pie etc.) for those whose reservations where at 6 pm or after. If they are going to limit the buffet, would suggest that they allow some of the core Holiday items on the main menu. The staff were very helpful, and we had good service. They did bring over the manager, who offered to comp one of our meals.
The restaurant has a great feel to it. Quiet and comfortable. The food was delicious and I loved the open kitchen. Our server was attentive and very friendly. Valet parking is validated so that was nice as well. Great view of the bay off the Courtney Campbell. I’ll be back.
Food was excellent. Our waiter was rushing us. We had just sat down and when he brought the cocktail menu and wine list he put it on the table asked us right away what drink we wanted ( specifically asked other than water). We told him we would like a few minutes to look it over and within 45 seconds he was back asking what we wanted. Same thing happened with the food menu. We wanted to take our time and enjoy our evening out and the waiter seemed to want us to eat and drink as quick as possible... and it wasn't even busy at that time.
The salad STUNK! Why don't they have simple Caesar or "House" salads on the menu?? Why do salads there have to be so fancy you don't know what you are ordering and once you get it you take a wild guess and order a salad you hate it. It was three big chunks of lettuce with very little dressing. YUCK!
Also, the entre was one big piece of fish, NOTHING ELSE. No potatos, no rice, no vegetables, nothing! The plate was so simple and empty it looked barren.
The service was good. That is about all.
My wife and I enjoyed both the appetizers and the main course. The Oysters Rockefeller appetiser was delicious but was not as hot as it should have been. The dinner was a little more expensive than I thought it should have been. But, it looked great, tasted great was served by a pleasant waiter and was served in a timely manner.
Great service! We were waited on by billy who did a great job balancing service with being left alone. There was never a moment when we neede anything. Appetizer and food came out super fast not too quick where it was suspicious or anything. Food tasted good the pier 60 roll was a favorite.
Had a really nice time great ambiance waterfront dining billy our waiter was awesome with service recommendations everything. Manager checked on us and our meal and service. Food was very good, I'm hesitant to go out sometimes because the meal quality and bill don't match .... aqua met the challenge .... will go back !
Choose this resturant for our 20th wedding anniversary. Could not be more pleased with the choice. Had the Florida Snapper and the Seafood special bowl. Alaskan crabcakes for an appetizer. Chocolate beignet and Chocolate creme brulee for desert.
If you have an opportunity don't miss out on this place. Booths are great for parties of up to 6 people.
Complete disappointment; our first time attending Aqua, specifically for Mother's Day brunch with my family and parents, a special event set up by Aqua for $60/plate. The staff was overwhelmed, ill prepared, and definitely not ready for this type of activity. After having to pay for the reservation for the second time (first time over the phone, was not recorded), at the host desk before even entering the room, I found out that our table was given to a different group without a reservation. After waiting an uncomfortable 15min of standing with my whole family in the middle of this room with everyone staring, I had to ask for a table to be brought out to be set up for us as a solution. The table was set up in a very tight place by the entrance of this event room, in an area not set up for guests. Although the location for the brunch had an incredible view, the decoration was basically non-existent for Mother's Day, and the carpets in the room where stained and dirty. After 30min of waiting for the staff to set up our table and figure out what to do, and foreseeing an impending disaster with our brunch, I asked the host to move us back down to the main restaurant and refund me the brunch money. The host was kind enough to give us a refund; with no place else to go on such a busy day, we opted to have breakfast at Aqua, which was fine. I spoke to the hotel manager afterwards, and explained the disappointing experience and the embarrassment with my family. She proceeded to give me her business card and offer to give us a free dinner for my mother and I next time, which we won't do. Again, an incredibly special occasion for my family and I and it was completely ruined by poor planning and execution by the hotel / restaurant staff. Will not return.
Perfect place to celebrate my wife's birthday. The atmosphere was pleasant with a great view. The sound was great to have a decent conversation without having to compete with loud noises, music, and loud conversations from other tables. The food was magnificent. Would definitely return.
After a bad experience the first time we dined there, we were a little apprehensive about dinner there a second. I am happy to say Aqua far exceeded our expectations. The service was great, the food was delicious, everything was timed perfectly. Our waiter Bradley was excellent.
Our waiter outside was good but when asked about the ants all over the patio deck he didn't have any solution or didn't care - (crawling on our shoes) therefore he was not so accommodating to customer needs.
Whole snapper was good, yet the waiter needs coaching.
It was our 10th wedding anniversary! Although I noted this on the reservation, it was not recognized. (I wasn't expecting anything free, but just a "happy anniversary" when we were seated). The evening was completely wonderful anyway and we will definitely be back!
The food was not worth the money. We do fine dining all the time and this place was not prepared. We were there at 7 and it was not packed took 30 min for our server to get us drinks and 45 for food which by that time we where going to be late for an event so we ordered appetizers and still 45 min.
