    Food was delicious, generous portions. Caesar’s we’re good. Server was a bit over-the-top but got the job done. Tuna tempura should have some sort of sauce with it. Cheesecake was still a bit frozen in the middle. Otherwise everything was great. Creole chicken was outstanding!

    We went for a family members birthday. It was very disappointing and would not recommending for for any purposes. The service was really slow even though there was not very many people in the dining room. The steak was over cooked and was smoothed it with a very salty sauce. The beef short rib was dry and they tried to smoother it with salty sauce. The truffle fries didnt taste like truffles. The presentation of the food was ok. Best tasting thing dish was the sorbet and yam fries. No one came to ask about our experience. The experience was really unfortunate as we have been to other Executive Inn restaurants such as Provision in North Vancouver, a super restaurant with amazing food and service. This experience was disappointing we would not be going back again.

    There were three of us dining, two ordered off the Dine-Out Vancouver Menu and I chose from the regular menu. We all enjoyed our meals, as they were hot & delicious. Our server was Romanna, she was very busy serving a lot of tables always with a smile on her face, and kept everything moving and all of us looked after (great job). I had the Osso-Bucco (braised lamb) and it was fall-off-the-bone tender, and very tasty. The others had Creole Breast of Chicken and the Braised Beef Short Ribs from the Dine-Out menu, both enjoyed their meals. We noticed a sign on our way in for their Wednesday special Prime Rib, so we will return to try that as it was not available while the Dine-Out is available. Nice restaurant, with great food, & friendly service, we will return.

    The server was jolly and fun, but also respectful. I liked that it wasn’t noisy but felt cozy even if the football game on the TV by the bar area _ which me and my husband enjoyed b/c we like watching American football 🏈. The food tasted amazing! My favourite was the braised short ribs and my husband had the chicken which he said tasted juicy and had lots of flavor (good blend of spices). Also, try the lemonade with scotch!

    The restaurant is like a family restaurant or lounge that serves alcohol. Plus free complimentary parking. The servers are new (in training) but they are friendly and nice. We love all the dishes so far. Perfect seasoning, creative menu with interesting ingredients combination . The chef has came out and asked for feedback. He really cares and put his heart in every dishes he made which make it really impressive. We will visit again. Good Job!

    Check your order! We booked the restaurant having never been before, because it was one of the few offering reservations before an event that we were attending. The atmosphere was a little disappointing (it's located in a hotel lobby which is easy to miss if you are only booking through Open Table) as was the food (they were obviously trying to do interesting things with flavour but it just came across as confused). The real issue was with our drinks - or more specifically with our 11-year-old daughter's drink (and her friend of the same age). Both ordered a mocktail and complained that their drinks tasted bitter... I had a sip and had my suspicions confirmed when the bill came. The server had punched in the cocktail version with a similar name. We had the nearly untouched drinks (as well as guacamole which never came for the nachos) removed from the bill, but wow - NOT okay!

    This cozy restaurant has left the very best impressions! We celebrated my twin daughters’ birthday today and the servers made us feel so special. Mathew welcomed us and provided us with unmatched Excellent Service together with Roger, they did exactly what I requested. They served us with scrumptious dishes, lovely presentation, broad wine record and fantastic dessert. I will definitely recommend them to everybody! Acqua Restaurant is now our favorite restaurant and we will definitely visit them again.

    We were here to try the food and to celebrate a friend’s birthday. They were attracted by the Happy Hour deals which include $5 beer (considered a deal now as many other places have jacked up prices so much they seemed like regular prices), and I was attracted by the feature set menu which changes regularly. My friends really like the beers recommended by the staff. I had the Saturday special which was sangria and it was perfect. I ordered from the feature menu and did a 2-course for $30. The staff recommended the beet, orange and goat cheese salad and it was really nice. He also told me the salmon would not be overly dry and hard when I asked about it. I decided to trust his suggestion and got that. The salmon was done perfectly! I have not had such salmon which was done so nicely in a long while. It was really not dry and hard. It kinda melted in the mouth and the skin was crispy. It was so good that I am still thinking about it. The sides were equally delicious. A friend had the steak frites which he requested the meat to be done rare. I tried that and the steak was so tender. I loved it. Another friend ordered the burger from the HH menu and onion rings and he said it was good too. We all agreed we have found a new hangout now, especially during happy hours. The place is really nice and not too noisy as it was not very busy. In the end, we stayed there for over 4 hours. Great service, excellent food, nice ambience. We just continued to order more drinks even after happy hour was over. And it is free parking too. There were several parties also celebrating their birthdays when we were there as the staff would bring out a slice of cake and sing happy birthday. I guess most people come here to celebrate special occasions

    Came back to this place for happy hour and enjoyed the air conditioning and calmness of the restaurant. Drinks were good and cheap, the two plates we ordered were good, but note that the prices reflected on the online menu is not current. Dishes are about $5 more than what is listed - quite an increase. But service was good and it was nice to enjoy a happy hour nearby without all the loudness you tend to experience at the other more popular places.

    The food was not as described in menu. We had the seared salmon. Very small portions and salmon was not seared, more like steamed. The cauliflower puree was less than a teaspoon on the plate. Our beer drinks came in mismatched glasses. The calamari was greasy and tasteless. We ordered dessert however after waiting for over 10 mins the waiter came by and asked "you ordered dessert right"? We said yes, waiting another 5 mins and then just told him to cancel it. Will not go back.

    my parents, sister and i were there for the father’s day brunch and didn’t expect much due to the relatively low price. my reservation was at 1030 and had 2 hours until 1230. during the brunch, our utensils were taken away by the (3) servers at least 4 times and not exchanged for new ones until we asked. the first incident happened at around 11 and we left around noon. i am not sure whether it’s the restaurant’s business practice or the servers were working “too hard”.

    Cups, plates etc were very dirty. Even the new ones were not cleaned properly. Basic black Coffee was very bad. The cheese omelet came without any cheese. They had to provide cheese on a side plate after they realized the cheese was missed during cooking. It was our first Mother’s Day breakfast and we were all disappointed by the food.
