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!

The oysters were amazing. Very welcoming staff and the servers were outstanding. We had a reservation but got there early. So we sat at the bar and had a drink. Definitely would 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.

Great food, ambience, service and time. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if in the Soho area of Manhatten. It was pricey but so is everything else in NYC.

Absolutely - we both keep going back for the tuna entre. It’s extraordinary with crispy Jasmine rice cake and a Thai peanut sauce. I dream about it!

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.

Every morsel I devoured was beautifully presented and delicious. Especially the mussel soup and grilled salmon BLT. Prior plans to eat here while in NY fell thru due to conflicts, so glad I finally got to try it.

Aquagrill is one of our favorite restaurants. We have been coming here since the inception and the food gets better and better. Everything is cooked to perfection, and the accompaniments to the fish are always inventive and delicious.

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.

I’m a frequent guest but my last experience was one of the worst. Waitstaff was not knowledgeable about wines and oysters, host did not recognize loyalty and request for a prime table and service was very slow.

Aquagrill is hands down our favorite restaurant in NYC. We make reservations every time we’re in the city. The staff always recognizes us and treats us like family. The food is out if this world and the service is amazing. Ask for Jose, he’s the best!
