    Food was great. My martini was fantastic with the elderflower. I had a salad an appetizer and I had to get a doggy bag... the salad was huge! Decor was fun. I always think of tapas as a little more intimate. But as a restaurant we both wanted to go back!

    The two of us were placed by a loud, for me, party of eight. I struggled at times to hear my wife. We won't be going back. But I had to try the place to see. In that regard, it was worth it.

    Great food and service. We went (Sunday night). Different kind of vibe than what I expected but good. Kind of a chic vibe. I had the hangar steak. My spouse had the fish special. Both were really yummy. My wife had a grapefruit martini. It was one of the best she's ever had. She likes them nice and chilled. It looks like they chill their martini glasses. Very generous too. Perfect. We would definitely go again.

    This place had a good atmosphere. Noise level is pretty high but it was still bearable. Food was very good, but not fantastic hence the 4 stars. Brussel spruots were really good. Arancini good but a little bland. Not crazy about cauliflower street tacos but street corn was very good. Painkiller drink was delish. I would go back. Probably for just drinks and apps next time.

    The food was average .The best meal was the Gumbo Chicken and shrimp Gumbo spot on but really needed bread to soak up gravy, Chicken and Waffels affels definetly nothing to write home about, Chicken dry waffel plain,did not serve with syrup. Flat bread was a small pizza. Arancini balls where very good pork belly lollipops for the price where just 4 small squares of pork belly. You cannot hear yourself speak because of the accoustics and ceilings. I am sure it is a great place for late night drinking. Not a place to go for dinner with friends.

    Food was very good as were the Drinks and our waitress, Emily was excellent. The noise level was very high and our table was close to the bar height tables which added to our uneasiness. Maybe a clear divider, separating the two areas would help. Will try again on a weeknight when it might be quieter and a better atmosphere for dinner.

    Nice stop on the main drag in Manchester. Opens up to the sidewalk int he summer time. Food is really good (try the shrimp and cheesy grits!!). The chef has a southern flair on many menu items (chicken & waffles, gumbo, grits, etc.) . Have been there twice and food was excellent both times.

    We visited for a quick bite to eat before a show. We were seated quickly and the hostess/server was very nice. The drinks were all served timely and the food (flatbreads and fried pickles) tasted great. The lower rating was for two items 1) it seemed something was spilled on one of the chairs we were seated at and not cleaned appropriately. The rest of the restaurant looked clean but it started the visit off poorly. 2) one of the flat bread orders was missed. This may have been a minor oversight but with only one server it may also be due to trying to do to much. I would go back as the food was good and service friendly.

    Food and service were good. Only complaint is the space is not super comfortable has a sort of cold feel. Maybe it is the color palate? Not sure, just was not relaxing, but with friendly servers and pretty tasty food I will go back.

    Extremely slow service, which is probably due to understaffing just like everywhere else. Our server was good, he just had too much to do that he couldn’t get to us much. Food was pretty good.

    BluAqua was a pleasant surprise. We had a great waiter, though all the staff chipped in to help. My son loved the fish and chips. The fries were perfect - non greasy and well seasoned. I had the combo gumbo. Lots of chicken, shrimp and sausage, and the heat was the right amount. The chocolate flourless cake was to die for.

    This restaurant has tons of potential!!! Great location right on elm with big glass doors that open out to the street. Our waitress was wonderful, very nice and attentive. Unfortunately things were just a little bit off, The glass windows were really dirty and on a nice warm night could have been left open for diners to enjoy a more al fresco experience. The sound level was loud, dining area and bar are in the same space with no division, and the hard floors cause an echo that makes it hard for diners to have a more intimate experience dining. Probably not much that could be done about this structurally but again if doors had been left open this might have reduced some of the echo. Food was good but nothing amazing, and took a very long time to come out. The food was hot when it arrived, and I don’t believe our waitress was at fault, I think the kitchen was just very slow which is not surprising in this current climate with staffing being so hard. We sipped our drinks from the bar and enjoyed the time anyway. Bottom line, we will possibly try this place again but hope they can make some small improvements in the future.

    Food was outstanding. Great place to get some good food and check out a game. Nashville Chicken sandwich is done perfectly. Make sure you have a water or beer to go with it. Give them a shot you won’t be disappointed.

    One of my biggest surprises lately! There is absolute nothing we can’t criticize. I had researched per open table, I like that I can use that app. Upon arriving, we kind of questioned the bar like feel, but realized we were amongst comfortable company. The young waitstaff were on top of their game. Ours was very attentive, on time, checked back, did all of the right things. The menu was very much to our liking, thus the restaurant selection, and everything we has was prepared perfectly. We has Buffalo cauliflower for a starter, highly recommend….. Grilled romaine salad that we shared, again highly recommend,, One of us had steak and substituted vegetables for a side vs potatoes. Steak and asparagus were perfectly cooked, the other swordfish with Brussels and rice another hit. Everything was perfect, service, quality, quantity, and correct cook, . Even the wine was great. We are from away, but will look to returning ASAP.

    We were so disappointed with our dinner here. It was not what we expected at all. The bartender working was the only good part of our dinner - and the appetizers. This place has so much potential. I hope they turn it around.

    This is my second time coming here and it was just as good as the first. I love the atmosphere and the aesthetic of the restaurant. The food is great, my favorite thing is the Mexican street corn. It’s a must have. I recommend this place to everyone I talk to. I can see BluAqua becoming a regular choice for me.
