Great food. Wonderful service. The atmosphere is wonderful. We made reservations a while ago. We were seated next to the tanks which was nice. Our server was very friendly and on top of our needs.

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.

Was nice to try something different but felt like menu items were a little pricey for what we ordered. The service was excellent and the manager kept checking on us to make sure everything was perfect. Everyone was very friendly!

The quality of food we received was NOT worth the ridiculously expensive prices they charged. Service was poor and slow even though there were maybe 10 tables and at least 7 different servers we saw. Overall, you are paying for the experience.

For our party of 9, I needed to reserve separate tables for 4+5, with separate emails. When arriving at the restaurant, they were able to seat all of us at one table. The food and service were both very good!

We had a 115 reservation but did not get seated until 145. Then after ordering, the food also took another 45 min to come. The front desk service seemed annoyed by our presence. The waitress was nice and informed us she was new but was very slow and told us the wrong information about prices.

Nice combination of ambiance and sea/fish integration. Great for kinds and families if a little pricey. Seafood is adequate and does not stand out on its own.
