    What a fabulous meal yet again. Never disappoints. The oysters and martinis are divine as is everything else. Our server, Julio, was fantastic and attentive. Since I guessed he was from Cuba he gave me a beautiful dessert! I love this place and can't wait to go back!

    Aquagrill.....freshest seafood in the city. Shuckers did an amazing job...our oysters were chilled to perfection and impeccably clean. Host and bartender were gracious and attentive. The staff and ambience make this the kind of place you return to again and again....a really special spot.

    Service was really slow. Our server was incredibly nice but was rarely around. Our mains were way too salty and the risotto was close to inedible. It’s unfortunate because we live in the area and really wanted to like this place.

    Valentine’s Day — service was terrible Special v-day menu was 150 plus beverages and service. For that amount they should have had their act together. I have had positive experiences at this restaurant many times in the past, but this was a great disappointment.
