The service, food and attention to detail is wonderful. We were disappointed there were not more vegetarian options. We were considering cancelling our reservation, because there wasn’t much to choose from (vegan and gluten free). We stopped by earlier in the day to see if some other dishes could be prepared. It was also restaurant week. The person we spoke to talked to the chef and we were assured they would make something special for us. The evening of our reservation, we mentioned this to our server. He said they would do extra vegetables. However, we were only offered the standard fare, no extra vegetables, etc. To be fair, maybe that is all the chef had to work with. Luckily, my wife and I still occasionally eat seafood, so she had the Chilean bass.I had the gnocchi (she could not because of the gluten). We hope more plant friendly options will be added in the future.

Enjoyed clam chowder, oysters, scallops and duck. Preferred sea bass was sold out. Generous cheese tray for dessert.

Too many interruptions from staff “checking” on us. Difficult to have conversation.

Beautiful restaurant..service staff,very professional,attentitive..beautiful setting..clean,spacious..thought the food sub par..portions small for the price..thought the duck I ordered could have been cooked more..side dish not creative or tasty..crab cakes..very sparse..not a fresh flavor..next time I stay at the resort will go with other dining options

We were sent to the restaurant to try the scallops and were NOT disappointed. Amazing preparation with great texture and flavors. The staff was courteous and very helpful. The only improvement I would have liked was a more extensive dessert menu, but in the end, I was so full from the food I didn't miss not adding additional calories!

Before ordering we were told that they do not have the 8oz filet that was on the menu and only had 6oz for $45 instead of 8oz for $52. When I got my bill 6oz was charged at $48. Other than that was good experience.

Service & food were top notch as you would believe from such a fine restaurant. Although a small menu the choices were good and the expression along with the attention to detail every course received was exceptional. A wonderful holiday dining experience & well worth the drive

Creative cuisine! We had a wonderful dinner there after viewing the Christmas lights. The food was very creative and tasted excellent. The cheesecake dessert is not to be missed - its name is somewhat misleading. Lauren, our sever,gave us great advice on what to order.

This was our first visit to Nemacolin Resort, 50th birthday for her. The hotel was wonderful, the dinner at Aqueous was amazing, scallpos for her and sea bass for me. Both dishes were absolutely delicious with superb presentation. She said that this was exactly the way she wanted to spend her birthday.

Excellent Thanksgiving evening! Only one of us ordered the traditional “turkey” meal, and the chef did an EXCELLENT job elevating feel good flavors to the next level. All of our meals were perfect, and service was hands down superb. Kudos to everyone for making our Thanksgiving so special.

Mediocre food, priced for the resort. Service doesn’t come close to what you’d expect for the price. Very small portions - and I’m not one to complain about that. Plus dessert (coffee cake) was stale. In general you don’t come here for the food.

The service was wonderful- and when my husband mentioned we were going to split the meals (because they were both described so well), the server had the kitchen split our meals so we had our own share. Each taste was delicious- nice wine recommendation as well! No rushing us- and server checked back just the right amount of times! I value meals I won’t usually make at home- achieved!!! Great date!!

We had an enjoyable meal there on a very quiet night when few folks were dining. Service was good. Food was very good. As other reviewers have noted, it is expensive but it is a resort.

This was our 2nd visit and it was not a good as the 1st. The menu is limited , we ordered the steak and it was medium rare and not hot so we sent it back(we wanted medium) It was also highly seasoned and the potatoes were over cooked.Also there was a large party of about 20 men and it was very noisy . They should have seated them somewhere else. The salad was good and the desert excellent but for the price it was not worth the trip.
