We oped to sit at the bar, Brian waited on us and was awesome and the food was outstanding!
It's been a while since we've been able to dine at Acqua and it didn't disappoint! Their hand-crafted cocktails are delicious and our food was amazing as always.
Great food and service
Fabulous food and service! Our evening was a real treat, thanks.
Acqua is one of our favorite places. Always great service and food. Highly recommended.
Enjoyed every minute. Definitely have the passion sour.
Appropriately attentive staff. Went in winter when reservations were probably not needed, but staff was very accommodating to move reservation time. Food was outstanding, good portion size. Drink/beer list was good, not great. Overall a wonderful and cozy spot to take a loved one.
We stopped by for a family birthday celebration. The table behind us was loud and boisterous. This was totally understandable, but frustrating as well. We have heard great things about the restaurant, but were underwhelmed with the ambiance. The scallops were amazing, but the steaks left a lot to be desired. The service was pretty slow for having only 6 tables on our floor. My coffee arrived just as we were finishing desert.
In 8 years, very few missteps. The food is always first rate, the servers polite and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is friendly. When a guest of ours needed gluten free our server recommended several dishes and was very attentive.
Disappointed this time in the food quality. Service was exceptional as usual, but probably not going back for quite a while.
Everything was outstanding! Cocktails were delicious - so glad we passed up our usual wine to start with something unique and tasty. The Bolognese was the best we've had, and the risotto actually made me utter, "sweet baby Jesus!". ... I actually did that, and it's not the type of thing I go around exclaiming! Try the dessert, you know you want to -- and after such a great meal, you know it's too good to pass up. Service was second to none - like clockwork. Thanks for a great evening out. We'll be back!
Usually love Acqua. Took grandson and his girlfriend there to celebrate his 21st birthday. His $38 steak was not tender. They brought a dessert with a candle and charged $8 for it. My ragu was very good and the chicken marsala was good. Caesar salads also good. Will be back because of better experiences in the past.
We love Acqua. Lobster was not to their standard tonight. To their credit they took care of it.
Whenever we want a really nice meal, we come here. They never disappoint us!
The service is outstanding and the food always comes out looking (and tasting) fabulous! This is our "go-to" restaurant if we want to impress out of town friends or family.
Our salmon risotto and grilled chicken on pasta with creamy mushroom sauce was good. We like Aqua for it's location on White Bear Lake and the service. The food is consistently above average. This restaurant and bar is frequented by many of the locals.
Excellent dining experience all around. I highly recommend trying the orange mojito and the pork shank
Always a great experience. They pride themselves on great service and food. The location is an added bonus.
Brian was excellent as are server We had 7 people and they were all attended to in great fashion.
This is one of our favorite restaurants! We brought friends who haven't been there before, they loved the food. The waitress was great!
Food was excellent. We were however seated in a small room facing the lake which was cold. We had to put on our jackets.
Delicious food! Love the Ginger Jameson
Great service, setting, food and cocktails! The experience is consistent and I always look forward to going back!
The food was amazing! It was a bit pricey but we got what we paid for. The service was the best part. We were waited on hand and foot. For the hefty tips that they get you should expect that though. It was a night to remember.
Loved the Sea Bass special--fantastic! Love this restaurant!
Wonderful ambiance and food. Always a great time at Acqua. The staff is so friendly and very professional. Jeff is a wonderful Manager!
The rack of lamb special was amazing. With cherry gastrique and gorgonzola mashed potatoes was fantastic.
It was fine. We had a Groupon, but with 2 drinks each and tip, it was over $120. Pork Shank and beet salad were good and there was a lot of food, but pasta seemed like it came from a box. I think for the money you can find a better place to dine.
Overall everything was great from service to food. I was there with my husband for a date and was seated next to a group who was a bit loud and kind of take away the mood. Overall it was very nice and romantic.
My wife and I love Acqua! Fantastic food, drinks and service!
Reliably excellent. Cocktails are top notch. The menu could use some revitalization.
Lovely evening. Great good!!
This was our first visit to Acqua and we were impressed. We went there because we had a Groupon for a 4 coarse meal and the food was very good. The only reason for not giving an Outstanding mark on both food and service was this. I had the pork shank and the sweet potato puree was cool with a warm pork shank served on top. Flavor was great, but I prefer my food hot. Our server was excellent, although before we had our wine and cocktails, the first coarse had already been served. We prefer to have a little time to enjoy a glass of wine and a cocktail before beginning the meal. Overall, a very good experience and we will be back.
our serverwas very helpful in menu selection and sharing her own thoughts. These selections excellent tasting and ad classy presentation
Pleasant staff, great service, and food excellent; all as expected
It was a Valentine’s Day dinner and it was perfect with great service and food in a quiet setting with a reasonable price considering the occasion.
The food presentation and quality was amazing also the service was great! I have already recommended Acqua to many of my friends
Great place with views of White Bear Lake. Service was great!
The food and service is always very high quality and consistent. They have excellent craft cocktails and a very good wine list.
Excellent, friendly service and superb food and wine as always!
Excellent service and delicious food. Had a wonderful evening.
