We were looking forward to dinner at Casa L’ Acqua and had requested outdoor seating. Upon arrival,we were shown two tables. One, on the sidewalk, abutted the alleyway next door with a nice view of trash. The second table, a few steps up, was next to the entrance door at the hostess podium. I wouldn’t mind so much except that I booked the reservation on March 27 for April 21.

We sat next to the entrance door and tried to make the best of it. The food is very good and the waitstaff was welcoming and professional.

Unfortunately, the activity at the podium was annoying and, a couple of times, the door almost hit our table as people were coming and going.

The evening ended as the manager (?) came out and yelled at the hostesses and a server who were talking that the tables inside were “f..... dirty.” Forget the dessert and coffee - time to get the check.

I know every table counts these days, but not if it means you can’t offer a pleasant dining experience to your all of your guests.

This restaurant was incredible. The food was outstanding. Great wine list. We went with another couple Friday 4/16.
We had dinner reservations for 9:15 PM. We arrived a few minutes early and were told to head to the bar while a table finished their desert. We ended up having to wait until 10 PM to be seated.
The manager was very apologetic. They comp'd us for our cocktails and wine we had at the bar, as well as bringing out appetizers the minute we were seated.
The service and food was outstanding. We tried 3 of the specials and one pasta dish off the menu. All fantastic. We had a always great bottle of Caymus with dinner.
Hardly cared about the long wait after being seated. They are top notch. Great addition to Delray.

Dinner was excellent! First they bring to your table a piece of bruschetta each and a piece of Parmigiana Reggioano. They give you a plate of dipping sauce of honey with reduced balsamic. Amazing! The fresh semolina bread and toasted flatbread in the basket was an added treat.
The menu has something for everyone.
The wine list was extensive, the bar menu selections very nice.
They have valet parking for $5.
Beautiful garden seating, inside seating and seating outside in front.
A must try.

One of our favorites in Delray. Off Atlantic Ave, very peaceful (mostly enclosed) garden.. best linguine wth clam sauce in town. This location has gone through many incarnations over the years, this is the best. Sorry we won’t be back til next winter.

I love this restaurant- great food and service. But the noise level was unbearable. Several tables had no regard for other diners and it really ruined our meal. My sister and I were here for the second time this week because we had such a great experience earlier in the week. Wish we had requested a garden table. The dining room was a mistake.

My fifth visit in ten weeks. All prior were outstanding. This time NOT. Extremely loud and if you want to chat, good luck. Large tables with screaming kids. Was an off night for service as everything was screwed up. Food is amazing though.
Beware where they seat you as impossible to have conversations as is so loud.

Food is lovely esp the same pasta . Busy holiday week night dinner and it was packed by 7 pm . We were asked a minimum of 5 times if we were finished eating ( which we were not ) and presented with the bill before being asked if we wanted dessert ( which we did want ) . My only complaint is that they desperately wanted to quickly turn the tables . Food is great and ambience lovely but felt we were being pushed out the door and it was a special mother/daughter night out .

Everything was great with the exception of the table next to us invited 5 additional people to stand around the table to carry on like it was a sports bar. The management was kind enough to comp part of our tab. We will go again for sure.

The food is delicious & the staff is friendly but they are understaffed & it was difficult to get the attention of the waitress. She was very busy with all the tables she had to cover. We will try again. Hopefully there will be more people available to hire !!?

Just walking by this restaurant, on two separate occasions, I heard people comment on how good the food was. Thus, my husband and I decided to try it. We were not disappointed. The food was great, the ambiance was lovely and the service was outstanding! I told other family members about it who went there and agreed. Kudos!

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The cheese and balsamic they bring to the table to start is fantastic and so is the bruschetta. We had great wine with dinner and a nice cappuccino with dessert. Be sure to try the cheesecake! The restaurant is lovely. The only issue we had was that we were in a corner near some windows and the AC was bouncing off the windows and was pretty chilly. We will definitely be back!
