Superb food, ambience and waiter.
Good atmosphere, very good food. a bit pricey, very good service, front room second floor best for sound
We had just closed on a remodel deal for our house and felt the need to celebrate. We love Aqua. The food is always excellent and the service beyond expectations. Thank you for a very special delicious evening. And thanks to Patty. She was charming. (I almost forgot to mention that my husband needed a heart healthy meal and Patty saw to it even noticing that the potatoes should be changed from mashed to roasted. We’ve noticed, since he has had this heart condition, that restaurants are usually reluctant to accommodate.)
So, thank you.
Acqua on White Bear Lake is one of the Twin Cities primo dining experiences!
Excellent service. Started with beet salad which they split for us. Delicious—two types of beets. Lightly dressed (perfect). One of us had the pasta carbonara special, the trifecta of pork. Enjoyed it very much. The other person had the salmon. Cooked perfectly and the pasta was so tender, the right match for the salmon. Thanks to Brian for the great service
NEVER had a bad experience with food or service @ Aqua on White Bear Lake.
5 STARS for FOOD...SERVICE....and, STAFF!!!!
Finally found a great place to dine in MN. There are tons of places to eat in White Bear / St Paul area. Most are mediocre at best compared to other cities.
Very good food and ambience. Went with a Groupon and very pleased with the four course meal.
Awesome food and service! One of our favorites!
Great food and service
The scallops were perfectly prepared and delicious. Service was timed well too based on our request
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch at Acqua on a beautiful spring day in White Bear Lake, MN. The service was cheery and knowledgable. The menu had wonderful variety of tempting meals and our choices were perfectly prepared.
Looking out at White Bear Lake dotted with ice fishing houses was beautiful scenery.
Brunch was delicious! Exceptional hollandaise sauce.
We had the MOST delicious Brunch! The prime rib hash was out of the world. Acqua never disappoints and they definitely know how to throw a 5 Star brunch! Thanks!
I had the walleye and my wife had the risotto. Both were delicious.
Great food and craft cocktails!
The food was wonderful!!! Had a couple drinks and the server recommended the perfect wine pairings for my food selections.
We had an absolutely wonderful dinner. The food was amazing, the service was spot on, and the ambience was relaxing.
Just simply THE BEST. Feels like home except with a personal chef, sommelier and friends.
Great Food, nice location, easy parking excellent service.
This is our special occasion "go to" spot. Being waited on by the owner Daron was a real treat. He's at a different level as it relates to ingredients, prep, wine... One of us had the tasting menu, and the other, one of the night's specials. Acqua always delivers...
Such good food. Service is always friendly, informed and responsive. When I left the East Coast to live in the midwest, I gave up ordering linguini with clams. Too often it was canned clams, soggy noodles and way too much salt and/or red pepper flakes. But I trust the Acqua kitchen and the dish was the special the night we were there. Pefect: plump, fresh clams in the their shells, perfect noodles, and just enough red pepper flakes to get your attention. A perfect dish. You must try this kitchen.
My daughter’s birthday.
Great food and service! Love this place, such a special night out for a special occasion!
Great food, lovely setting looking out over the lake, great service throughout. Especially love the wild mushroom soup!
Filet and Lobster was the best meal I've ever had at Aqua. Jeff is always impressive. Thank you for a great evening. Nicole still makes the best lemon drops in the city.
Amazing food and service!
Great server (Bryant), even the busses and all other staff were super friendly!!
Wife and I had scallops and shrimp. We had these before and they were great. This time someone decided to blacken the dish with an extreme amount of spice. Seafood had no taste due to the spice. expense for a bad meal.Large expense for
The food was AMAZING! And out server Erin was outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
Excellent meal: mussels, matchstick apple salad, halibut, duck and BUDINO!
Patricia, our server, was great. Handled the whole room professionally and efficiently.
Love sitting by the fireplace.
Only criticism is that we didn't get seated until 1/2 hour after our reservation (mid-week). We understand it is difficult to know when a table might get cleared, but when it is definitely going to be prolonged, more communication/choices/etc would be nice (vs hostess constantly checking computer and running up/down stairs and we are not in the know).
We will be back: multiple times!
It was ok. Not worth the money spent. Steak was good but everything else was average at best.
We had a wonderful time at Acqua. Our whole family went out to dine there and the food was incredible. The server and staff worked together to make our experience one to remember for years to come. Their attention to detail was impeccable. We will definitely return sometime in the near future.
awesome service food is above average delicious!!!
Acqua never disappoints and this visit was no exception. Walleye dinner was awesome and Ragu Bolognese seemed even more delicious than its usual exceptional deliciousness. Service was also up to its usual high standards, from the moment you walk in the door until you walk out the door. Love Acqua!
Our hostess, Patricia was wonderful and delightfully helpful in helping us through the menu and wine selections. The food as usual was marvelous and very favorable. Can’t wait to go back again.
The food and wine list are always top shelf. We have tried just about everything on the menu and Acqua never disappoints. It's a bit pricy but well worth it.
Though we had made a reservation and had a table available we chose to sit at the bar as we enjoy Nicole’s company (bartender and owner). My husband gave Nicole creative license to make an Old Fashioned of her own design. He enjoyed it a great deal. Service is always great and the food is as specified. I would simply like more options in the salad category.
