Fabulous raw bar! Loved the cherrystones, they were huge! Cooked entrees yummy too!
Beautiful oysters and appetizers, we had fantastic evening and even had great conversations with both tables next to us.
I’ve been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years, which is not something you can often say in New York. Every experience has been wonderful. I ate my first oyster at Aquagrill. I celebrated my first wedding anniversary there, and tonight my husband and I had an excellent dinner with friends. Our server, Jordan, was outstanding, and the service-like the food-is consistently great. This is a restaurant that makes you feel welcome and cared for. The quality of the seafood, from the oysters to the salmon to the soft-shelled crabs and more- is impeccable, but I have to mention that Aquagrill also excels at a course often ignored or downplayed by many restaurants: dessert. Every dessert, Jordan informed us, is made in house, and as we treated ourselves to a few of them I can confirm the ice cream, tarts, flourless chocolate cake and sorbets are beautifully composed and so, so delicious. I hope Aquagrill is around for the next 25+ years.
Consistently wonderful from cocktails to dessert!
The chilean seabass in miso - amazing !!!
Enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner at Aquagrill. The service was first class and the food was fresh and delicious.
Agradable y diferente lugar, comida excepcional.
Best seafood restaurant in the city. Excellent service, tuna, salmon, oysters, all fresh, were delicious.
Server seemed to want to turn the table from the get-go. Annoying. Restaurant wasn’t full all night.
Amazing service and seafood!!
We had fun talking to people at the bar and then had a very nice dinner. Their billii bi soup is excellent! Cornbread is too! Waiters very and great service.
Wonderful visit for brunch. From a dozen oysters through Yellow Tail & Conch appetizers, Soft Shell Crab salad and Lobster Eggs Benedict. Wonderful.
Great raw bar
Excellent seafood always. This time East coast oysters and cod. Server was intent on selling up, not gracious service.
Had a wonderful dinner! Wine, and Oysters were fantastic, snapper cooked to perfection and scallops nice and sweet. The desserts are incredible. A MUST in NYC for seafood dinner.
Service was horrible. Our waiter was rude. The ambience is outdated and the food just ok for the price. We are not going back there or recommend to any of our friends.
Aquagrill has the freshest oysters in the city. It also has what I think may be the largest selection. I had posted a photo of oyster shells on FaceBook and said that whoever identified the subject of the photo would win a prize. that prize was dinner at Aquagrill at which we had the oyster combination plate! What a treat -- with a very good glass of Gruner Veltliner. The service, as usual, was special -- attentive, knowledgeable, pleasant. Always a special place for me.
By far the best oyster bar in the city, and the cooked seafood is great too. My only quibble is (and I am not a fan of over-chilled wine) they tend to underchill their wine the two times I was there in the past month. I hadn’t noticed that in the past, so maybe just an aberration.
We loved this place! Outstanding meals. Nova Scotian Halibut fabulous. Wine fabulous. Dessert- strawberry-rhubarb something-or-other...fabulous. Service-also fabulous...get the picture? Go here- busy; great vibe. Can’t wait to return and visit here again.
Wonderful time with a large group from work. Food was fantastic and everyone cleaned their plates no matter what was ordered. Service was very attentive (with our group being so large, there were a few times that too few plates or glasses were brought, or someone's order was missed, but they were quickly rectified). Very much plan to go back in the near future.
Great dinner celebrating my birthday. Staff was pleasant and food was amazing. We live in Dallas and whenever we are in the city, we always come here. Highly recommend it!!!
My favorite New York restaurant.
Food is very fresh, well prepared, portions ate small and it’s quite expensive.
The Aquagrill is a “go to” restaurant whenever I’m in New York and have to entertain clients. In over a dozen visits it has never disappointed. From front of house to the bar to the kitchen, it is a predictable and outstanding experience that is dominated by a single word in every aspect: “Excellent.”
Awesome, as always!
Fabulously fresh fish cooked perfectly!
Jerry our waiter set the stage for a wonderful brunch: Personable, Attentive, Professional. He sets a high bar for Manhattan!
Excellent never a change in all the years we’ve dined there.
The oysters are so fresh, you would think they could walk! While $4.35 is a bit pricey for a kumamoto oyster, those oyster were wonderful. The crab benedict was also perfect. Phenomenal brunch.
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.
Excellent! Really excellent.
Seafood was very fresh and prepared perfectly.
Dessert was excellent.
The service was so great. Can’t wait to go back
The crab risotto is to die for !!
A wonderful restaurant experience. Tasty and imaginative fish and seafood dishes, amazingly large oyster selection, vibrant and energetic. We felt so welcome by our waiter and the maître d', even though it was our first visit. Great flavors and an overall fun experience.
Great staff, delightful ambiance, happy customers in a cheerful, attractive restaurant.
Reliably top-tier seafood and service. I’ll continue to return.
One of my favorite restaurants in the world. Great food. Suave service. Not cheap, but not overpriced.
Best oysters. Best waiter. Welcoming hosts and bartender. And an entree I keep thinking about and wish to have again next day. Not to mention, homemade desserts and complimentary cookies... So happy to discover Aquagrill.
Great oysters and seafood!
Fantastic, as always.
