It’s a theme restaurant. The food is ok at best and generic. The reason you dine at a restaurant like this for the ambience. Pay your $150+ tab and hush!

Went for a specific occasion. Wrong wine brought out. Condiments were forgotten. Twice. Food was sent back twice for raw after specifically asking with simple instructions. had to eat after everyone at table was finished. For a 150.00 meal. You would think they would have done something about it to compensate. Even table nearby mentioned it was rude and degrading not to and to even try to recitify any aspect of the entire meal mess up what so ever. Waitress was very kind though in personality.

Good and atmosphere was pretty good but we made a reservation and it still almost took 40mins to seat us. Forgot my husband’s drink but once he reminded them they took good care of us.

Our reservation was at 6:30 pm and we actually received a text at 6:21 saying our table was ready. They ended up not actually seating us until 7:48 pm. More than an hour and 15 minutes after our RESERVATION!!! The host was hostile about it and told me twice that they were cleaning our table...once at 45 minutes after our reservation and once at the one hour mark. Each time when I asked him what happened to the table that they were cleaning for us he just ignored my question. The General Manager finally got us seated and did comp a couple of appetizers, but two appetizers for a large party that was seated an hour and 18 minutes late was not much of a help.

The hostess was very polite/nice. The food was good and was delivered promptly. However, there were many empty tables text to the tanks and it would have been nice to be seated closer to the fish. Our server had asked if we wanted drink refills, we replied "yes" but he never delivered them. Also, when he delivered our bill it was not the correct one, it was about $30 more than what we ordered. We had to send it back to receive our correct bill.

Waited 15 minutes and was never approached by any staff or server after being seated. The restaurant was not busy and appeared to be adequately staffed. I decided to leave and have dinner elsewhere.

Food is excellent service compares to the food. Price is extremely expensive especially when taking a family to lunch. If you have small children do not even look for macaroni and cheese. They only have grilled cheese. Not as good a menu for small children as needed. Coconut shrimp was excellent but I can, very pricey lunches.

Service was insanely slow. We waited an hour and a half for our food, and the restaurant wasn’t busy at all. I also made a reservation. Food wasn’t great, especially for the price. The experience was fun for the kids… until they passed out at the table after waiting so long for our food.

Food was really good. Definitely on the above average price side. Only some areas have a view of the fish tanks. I thought it was more immersive and surround views of the fish and tanks.

The grilled shrimp was overcooked and chewy, the calamari was not hot when it arrived at the table, the stuffed crab was dry. The tank needed cleaned. It was expensive to have such a poor meal.

We came in for lunch after walking through the aquarium with 4 small children. Our servers were very nice, but it took over an hour for our food to come out. The kids couldn’t sit still any longer and got really restless. Please remember most of your customers have children that need to get in and out a little quicker. The atmosphere was fun though, just not enough to hold the attention span of small children.

The service was slow, the food was overpriced— especially for the quality. We went once before on Valentine’s Day and it was also not great, but that’s a hard night for restaurants so we thought we’d give it another chance. Never again.

The ambiance is the best part, the aquarium, the lighting, the music and the mood. The food is good (not excellent yet fresh and enjoyable), but a little pricey for the quality (think theme park). It was more quiet than usual as the mermaid shows are still on pandemic pause, less little kids running through the restaurant to see the mermaids. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable evening. Our waitress was friendly, just not on top of refills, condiments etc. I

Overall a good experience for me and grandson (9 years old). Obviously I could manage the cost. However, thousands of families cannot afford to eat at the Aquarium (or even take the adventure tour or other programs). That makes me really sad.

I understand, as a seafood restaurant, vegetables and pasta is not the specialty. However, it’s still an upscale restaurant and definitely not worth the price for watery bland food. No matter what you order, every item should be just as delicious as the other. Rustic vegetable pasta could definitely be improved upon.

The food and service was amazing. It wasn't until the end when the servers did not know how I was going to get the glass that I paid for. Then when I went to get it, they were out. The manager told the other employee, in front of me, "tell her that we are out and she will have to pick another one". Other than that the visit was great.
