Server was amazing. My 2 year old got to witness 2 boys kissing across from us the entire meal. Food was mediocre for the price. Portion sizes sucked for the price. Its definitely not worth the hype created for it. No family wants to sit across from 2 boys making out the whole time. Very gross while you are trying to eat.

Excellent! The aquarium was amazing! The starter dish of the seafood dip was amazing! Also the salad with blackened chicken and shrimp was out of this world!

The food was good but not exceptional. This is the place you come for the huge fish tanks that you watch the fish swim by.
It seemed that our server forgot about us.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved it! The staff was nice, that atmosphere was very welcoming and obviously the fish were entertaining as well. The food was a little expensive but you 100% get your bang for your buck. Everything was delicious and came with big portions. I still can’t get over the variety of fish they had in their tanks. It was awesome highly highly recommend!

Food was ok. Very expensive for what you get. I guess you pay for the experience more than anything. I think it would've been more worth it to eat at Rainforest Cafe.

Menu that was online was NOT menu that was offered , and of the 5 meals chosen only two were available, dessert that was ordered wasn’t even the dessert that was served because once agin they didn’t have it , server was great , manager was RUDE , if other restaurants would’ve been open we would’ve walked out but we had to eat something, don’t waste your time at this restaurant.

Will never go back took an hour to get drinks. Took another hour to get appetizer took almost another hour for food then we had to send one steak back because it was so burnt it was black the second one wasn't any better. And no type of refund or apologies it was horrible service and I spent over $300.

I was very excited to try this restaurant. However, the food was really bad. The fish was dry, over sauced, and had a cheap fishy taste to it. The chowder tasted like water with large chunks of under cooked clams. Also, the food was so overpriced. If the food had been of good quality I could understand the price but it was pretty gross. Our waiter never once refilled any drinks, complained, and made serving us seem like the biggest inconvience to her. We had reserved our table ahead of time and they disregarded that entirely and sat us in a completely different section than what we had to request. Which is sad because they weren't even busy. So they could have fulfilled our requested seat placement. The only good thing was the ambience of the aquarium setting. Even that was lacking in terms of the fish did not appear taken care of. They had fish with torn skin where you could tell they had teeth or natural features removed so they could be placed in a tank with other fish. The guy in the gift shop who gave us our souvenir glass was super courtesy. He gave us better service than our waitress did.

So please save yourself the time and the money and do not eat at the Aquarium Resturant. Your money would be better spent at the food court in the mall.

Our three year old son loved the fish! We waited about 30 minutes for our food after we ordered, which was difficult with a small child. When the food arrived, it was hot and everything was good!

At $20+ per plate, you're definitely paying for the experience. The food is ok, nothing spectacular. Half of the price must go to feed the beautiful animals in the huge wrap around tank.

Food was absolutely delicious, staff was very attentive. My only issue was ambiance. Tables around us had young children who were allowed to yell & run around the tables, up to the tank glass putting their hands all over it, despite the signs, and neither the parents or the staff did anything about it. It took away some of the enjoyment. Hopefully the staff will enforce their signs and ask parents to get control of their children. After all, it is still a restaurant, not a theme park.
