Overall, very good. Went there on New Year`s Eve.
Only complaint was w/ the front desk....the hostess at the front desk snapped at the seating hostess right in front of us. We were originally going to be seated near the front door & I asked that we sit a few booths away, as it was 20 degrees outside. Instead of just re-seating us, she sighed & said he`d check w/ the front desk. We were re-seated , but it was an awkward move on their part. BUT, the food was great. Worth going to, but they need an attitude adjustment, here & there.

Aqua Terra never disappoints. Stacy, Steve and Nick are lovely people. When you go to their restaurant, it is like visiting their home. They are warm and hospitable. Nick is a wonderful chef and we enjoy our dining experience every time we visit.

The entire evening was a disaster. The waiter sat on the windowsill as he took our order. I first off expressed that my daughter must follow a strict diet. He asked the chef if the salmon was gluten free and told us it wasn't. we asked if the chef could not coat the salmon with horseradish crust and he said I will ask him. I ordered the Chicken Oriecceti and the waiter brought Shrimp oriecceti. He was reluctant to bring me the correct order. My daughters salmon was overcooked. Finally my chicken dish arrived and was very tasty. I was disappointed with our meal. Unfortunately, I probably won't be returning to Aqua Terra any time in the future.

I met my long time friend there on Sunday for brunch, which was very good. Our waitress was friendly and stopped by our table many times to see if we needed anything, and the young men bussing the tables were constantly removing used plates and bringing extra cream or napkins. It was a busy Sunday as it was close to Christmas; but we were never rushed, and we were pleased with our dining experience. In the past I have met friends for lunch and celebrated New Year's Eve there, and I intend to ring in 2018 at Aqua Terra again this year.

Sadly everything about this restaurant has declined.
While festively decorated for the holiday season, there is a musty odor throughout the restaurant. Service was virtually nonexistent which is puzzling since the restaurant was fairly empty. Food was mediocre... but hard to enjoy considering poor service and musty odor. Restaurant is in need of a complete makeover and new management that understands and acknowledges customer satisfaction is critical. Sadly everything about this restaurant has declined.

The place was awesome - and crowded! It was a great brunch except for the 30 college kids sitting next to us made it difficult to have a conversation and felt like a frat house. Looking forward to going again and hopefully a little more peaceful environment :-)

This was our first time at AquaTerra and we made reservations for 2. We were seated fairly quickly however, it took a significant amount of time for us to get served or for anyone to acknowledge our presence.
While everyone received bread and drinks we sat there hoping someone would wait on us. Finally, our waiter came by to ask us our order and made us order everything at once which I️ found a bit strange but at point I️ was happy to be served.
The bread came out minutes before our appetizers and of course we had to server for butter because they forgot that as well.
The food itself was mediocre. The chicken stuffed with Gorgonzola had the texture and taste of egg fu yung. The sauce tasted as if it was from a can and the steamed asparagus had no flavor. My friend received the salmon which was “ok” but lacked flavor and again her steamed was simply just steamed with no flavor.
We were never asked if we wanted the wine pairing altogether I️ found the pairings to be a bit odd. In all, as my first I️ was not impressed with neither the food or the service. The food pairings didn’t quite go together and and the sides lacked flavor.

Always a treat. Greeted by Stacy, the owner. Tried the soup sage and pumpkin. Delightful. The dish I enjoy here the most is the potato wrapped cod. Served over baby asparagus and covered in a tasty cream sauce with capers.
Go. No disappointments await.

My husband and I came with friends who had never been to the restaurant before to celebrate our anniversaries. We were seated in a little alcove that was very cozy allowing us to hear each other. The food was absolutely delicious. Our friends couldn't stop complimenting the salads that came with our meals. Very generous and tasty along with the main courses. My husband and I each got the trout dish. Love, love, love.
We have been several times, and will continue as we've never had a bad meal. Our waiter, Peterson, was also very attentive to our needs.

Had a great dinner. Eric our waiter was great. He was also doubling as bartender and made a great martini. There were four of us and we all agreed our dinners were delicious. Salads were good with homemade balsamic dressing. We had, chicken and penne in vodka sauce, beef and vegetable stir fry, chicken parm and filet. I would recommend all four! We were in the lower Hudson Valley for a long weekend but if we are back in the area, we will definitely make this one of our dinner spots!

Enjoyed celebrating my birthday here. It was our first visit to this restaurant, and we were very pleased with the meal. Portions are almost too large. We did take home leftovers. Coconut shrimp was my appetizer. Very tasty. Then seafood over linguini. Was surprised by how much fish was here. Clams, shrimp, mussels, and scallops.

Desserts are also huge.

As usual, an unhurried experience. I particularly like brunch for the full array of food, omelet station and cutting board. Price is reasonable even if you add on a glass of wine, Mimosa or Bloody Mary.

Wife and I checked out Aqua Terra Grill for first time. Great atmosphere and food for the most part. My wife had Red Snapper filet and I had a New York strip. the New York strip was excellent but unfortunately my wife's filet was loaded with bones making her meal unenjoyable. We told the waiter about the bones but no attempt was made to rectify the situation. Everything else we ordered was good and the waiter was great making the restaurant worth trying again but not in the near future.

First time here, for a night out with the family. Very nice setting, welcoming. I had a special, a pork Osso bucco and it was amazing, should be a permanent part of the menu! We enjoyed the appetizers and liked that salads came with the meal. Nicely presented. I plan to return and try more of their menu.

I ordered the paella- the dish was flavorful. Rice was cooked through-soft and perfect taste.
My aunt ordered the braised lamb- was the best dish at our table. The meat was tender and it came with orzo covered in the same sauce used for the lamb.
I've had the crab cake burgerat lunch and it was delicious.
