The food was excellent. Great service and a great value. We had reservations for 7:00PM and were called for seating at 7:11 which I thought was great considering the number of people there. After dinner, the waiter was so very good to my wife…it was her birthday and he made her feel very special without all the singing and stuff. He was very complimentary of her and made us feel very special.

The food was excellent, and the service couldn’t be beat. Aqua offers a wide variety of food. I have many food allergies, and Aqua was able to accommodate my needs. The server was very attentive to us. Oh, and make sure you save room for the key lime pie!
