We have been to Aquagrille many times in the past and recommended to friends. Because of flight delays we had to reschedule to Saturday brunch instead of dinner. We arrive right at opening. We did not want to sit outside because it was very windy. So we were relegated to the back room right by the kitchen. We were the only customers seated in the back room and it felt like Siberia. After ordering it took forever for our food to be served and we saw several trays go (and dishes return) from the front while we waited. The grilled bronzino was overlooked to the point of being inedible. The warm shrimp salad and lobster Benedict were so-so. The server was not particularly attentive. Very disappointing since we have had such good meals at Aquagrille in the past.

My latest experience at Aquagrill was a huge disappointment. I went there for oysters and they were frozen cold . I order one of each oyster and we’ve got 4 of some random ones . When I asked waiter that this is supposed to be sample he said that this what oyster shocker did for us . I know when I order 26 of each oysters I should have 26 of each oyster . So sad because I always loved this place .

This was not a good day for this restaurant. We were not seated on time and then only in their little covered outdoor “annex”, which would have been nice but for the drastically sloped table that actually made eating soup difficult. They were obviously understaffed for a semi big day (Father’s Day). It took 20 minutes to get a drink and bread. The meal started ok food wise with big well chilled oysters. It went downhill from there. My wife’s salad arrived with an ant crawling in it and it took them an unreasonable time to get her another. That’s a major turn off and there was no attempt to compensate. The salmon and cod dishes were poorly prepared and tasteless. This place is expensive and the level of service and food did not come close to expectations and really was poor value. You’d think Father’s Day they would step up. Not this time.

We had a reservation for 5:30 pm
We were seated outside the bar at the worse seat and smallest table; instead of the inside dining area
Water was room temperature
Waiter was fair but has to stop saying the food is amazing; it isn’t

Took my lovely wife here for her birthday and it was a homerun! What a great restaurant! From top notch service, to delicious food, this restaurant delivers on all levels! Incredibly fresh oysters! We had different variety of oysters, ranging from very small to pretty large ones. A little tip: find out the name of the biggest oyster on the menu and go for it, because, if speaking honestly, they all taste pretty much the same! But at least, you'll enjoy the biggest one on the menu for the price of.the smallest one on the menu! We will definitely comeback here again!

Been coming to this place for various occasions and weekend brunches for a while now. The food is always solid. I mainly come for their oyster selection though. Last time I visited was for my birthday and we thought the oysters weren't as good as they usually are. Service was good although the waiter ended up mixing up our entrees and getting us something we hadn't ordered. It turned out to be a good substitution though so no complaints about that particular one. The menu could use some updating - the entree selection, for example, has been virtually unchanged for a couple of years now.

I have been to Aquagrill many times and as usual everything was excellent. The only minor grip I had is that I ordered the soft shell crabs which where excellent in every way but that they gave me two (2) crabs which I thought maybe was not quite enough. I think 3 would have been more appropriate given the calibre of this restaurant.
