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.
We had other plans, but they didn’t work out. We decided to try Acqua as we near by and often considered it. It was our way over due date nite, and was perfect. The service, food and cocktails were perfect. We had a great night, including dessert. It was awesome.
Good food and great service. A very unique place to go for dinner and the perfect date place. I highly recommend going to aqua.
My husband and I made a somewhat last minute decision to go out for dinner this past Saturday evening. We were able to secure a 7:30 pm reservation at Acqua White Bear Lake. We arrived a little early and as our table was ready, was escorted upstairs to a table for 2, right by the front windows. It was a beautiful evening (snowing) to be inside and looking out! The food was as wonderful as always, including desert! Our server was equally wonderful!
Great food, friendly (very) staff, wonderful ambiance. This was our first-ever visit to Acqua, and it certainly won't be our last. Cozy dining rooms means it's not too noisy. And we can't wait for spring/summer to arrive so we can dine outside - with an outstanding the view of the lake. Well done, Acqua.
Service was excellent . Tenderloin was prepared perfectly as ordered . We sat upstairs and it was quite noisy even at a corner table but overall good experience
We always have an excellent dinner as well as excellent service at Acqua. Love the walleye!
Once again, Acqua made our anniversary celebration wonderful. Fantastic food, great wine and excellent service all added up to a memorable evening.
Been here several times and this was among the best. Each dish was excellent and great service too
We have been going to the Forest Lake location for the few years, but found a Groupon and went back to the WBL location for the first time in a long time. The food was still a good as it used to be. The meatballs were fantastic, the Caesar salad was OK, my wife had the beat salad and said it was very good, the chicken Marsala was fantastic, the pork shank was OK, and the burdenee dessert was very good. The service was very good (friendly and helpful). The main complaint we have about WBL is the size of the restaurant...... you are right on top of the other guests (including the ones at the bar).
The meatball appetizer, mushroom soup, and apple-and-Manchego salad were excellent, as was the chocolate souffle; and the salmon entree was exceptional! The only disappointment was the Ossobuco, which was dry and tough and tasted old, despite a delicious sauce.
Aqua is a restaurant for a special occasion. I felt that $14 for a 4 oz glass of wine was definitely too high. Food is very good and gluten free options are available. Service was a little slow. Prices are in the $$ range for main entree only. Summer is the best time to visit as the views of White Bear Lake and activities on the lakefront make your dining experience special. Honestly we prefer the Aqua in Forest Lake, which is also located on a lake, and probably would not go back to the White Bear Location.
We chose the “date night” menu. Was good, but last years menu had better options
The service was great, good descriptions of different menu items allowed us to make good choices, responsive to needs and refilled water and drinks without asking. Food was great. Three of us got the scallops and shrimp and not only did it taste wonderful, but it really was filling. Great bread and butter at the table, cozy and not noisy.
