Trip Advisor Great food and Drinks, average ambiance

I had heard alot of great things about Aqua, so decided to try it. The food was great. I had the filet which was cooked perfectly. My date had seafood and really enjoyed it. The mixed drinks were crafted well. The service was great. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. I just expected more of an upscale ambiance. It was fine, but just nothing too special. Overall a very nice place tho!

Got a coupon on Groupon and decided to check this place out. The environment and decor was sharp. The service we received was top notch with great menu choices. We enjoyed both our entries and will be back.

Food was mediocre; however, was expecting better from what I have heard. Although great service and atmosphere! May revisit

Trip Advisor A sad, depressing situation

The last time I visited this establishment the advertised special of prime rib turned out to be a grizzled piece of tough, fatty meat. The typical, "melt-in-your mouth" texture of a good prime rib was entirely absent. I ate a couple of pieces of the meat and then decided to take the remaining portion home for my dog. My German Shepherd did enjoy the meat. Not only was the food 180 degrees different than the advertised special, the serving staff ---to say the least --- was underwhelming. I still wonder if the restaurant was purposely pulling a bait and switch. One bar waitress, in particular, seemed to be trapped in her own reality. You would have make a request several times before it would trigger some brain matter and she would respond. I don't think she was purposely rude but simply lost inside her head. It is a very frustrating experience to make contact with this individual. Multi-tasking was not her strong point by far. I left this restaurant vowing not to come back. This was not my first negative experience with this restaurant.

We had a great experience here. Took my wife out just because. We sat outside with was perfect because we were able to enjoy some beautiful weather. She started with tuna wontons and I had berry gazpacho, both of which were delicious. Our server, Matthew was all too accommodating, making recommendations with out being pushy. My wife ordered the spinach salad, which they were out of. They actually went out and got fresh organic spinach to make it for her, which is awesome. Main course was flounder stuffed with cheesy crab (we both agreed it was some of the best fish ever and my wife doesn't eat fish) and crab cakes. Dessert was a salted caramel gelato. All with a cocktail came to $120 with tip (extra because he deserved it). Not bad for a Monday night dinner. Highly recommend!
