Aquagrill always delivers. Service was absolutely top notch on a night where we were looking forward to a night where we had babysitting but only had a little over an hour before our show. They got us through oyster, appetizers, main course and desert without us ever feeling rushed. And all with expert advice about food and drink - all of which was outstanding. The Dover sole special was perfect. The Thai fish soup was delicious. Just a great evening as always.

Went with my girlfriend for a nice dinner, and we had a great time. It was my first time at Aquagrill, her second time.
Our dishes were delicious; I wasn’t necessarily blown away, it wasn’t an otherworldly, mind-blowing experience, but the food was certainly top-notch. The three breads were all terrific, and a small salmon tartare amuse bouche was served between bread and appetizer, and was quite good. You can really taste the freshness in the seafood!
Service was fantastic; my girlfriend and I have a lot of allergies, and our server was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and open. We had no reactions and no problems at all.
Also, the location is spectacular; literally across the street from the CE Spring Street station.

Overall, a great experience at a luxury restaurant!

You can always count on Aquagrill for a consistently great meal. They serve a large variety of fresh oysters and a seafood heavy menu. The service is always knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous. There is also a nice outdoor seating area. Aquagrill is a must try in the Soho neighborhood!

I brought my 6 year old foodie here for lunch. We sat at the bar and Stacey was amazing! She took really good care of us and paid special attention to my little guy. The food was just as good as I remembered it when I used to frequent this spot. We will definitely be back!

Took my wife there for her birthday. Service was great, and the outdoor table we had was very nice. My wife had an appetizer and main course that she seemed to like. I had an asparagus and shrimp soup and the bouillabaisse. Both were okay, but not great. The soup lacked the full flavor of truly fresh asparagus. The bouillabaisse was under seasoned. I asked for salt and lemon juice, which fixed the problem, but a professional kitchen should never have let a dish go out like that. It wasn't a bad experience, but for the price I expected much better.

Never a bad meal. Everything on the menu is worth trying. Ambiance is an upbeat vibe. Food is spectacular and service is a 10. (Our server Jordan made our night!). For a restaurant that has been around for at least 20 years it just keeps getting better!!

Restaurant was packed the night we were there so many other people must enjoy aquagrill. We found the food avarage. Scallops dry and rubbery and barely acceptable, bouillabaisse pretty good. Our server was rushed and inattentive, coming by at random to stick his head into our conversation, but then absent for long periods when we needed him. Not an enjoyable evening.

I took my niece out for her birthday at Aquagrill and it was excellent. We started with raw oysters and clams which tasted like they were just snatched out of the ocean. I had the scallops with crab risotto and sugar snap peas, all cooked to perfection. My niece had either the cod or halibut which she said was delicious. We shared the crème brulee for dessert which was good, but we both preferred the traditional brulee as opposed to this one that was hazelnut or chocolate. Service was attentive without being overbearing. A tad pricey, but worth it.
