Took wife and two kids (17 and 12) to Aqua Grill last night. The service was excellent. We called in reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival. Oyster Rockefeller is fantastic. I had Vidalia crusted flounder and it was exquisite. Taste were right on, with real lobster meat infused in the risotto, it was near perfect. Wife had filet cooked... More

Wrote a review almost exactly a year ago after Aqua Grill opened - some kinks needed to be worked on then. Information is available on the previous. We returned tonight after this long while hoping and deciding to see how this restaurant may have improved. Bottom line = disappointment = will not return = nor recommend. This restaurant is pricey.... More

The menu was quite extensive with a number of nice sounding entrees. The four of us each had a different entree and there were no complaints at the table. The noise level was quite loud, so if anyone has hearing issues and is bothered by noisy tables, carrying on a conversation could be a challenge.

It has been quite awhile sine we ate here. In the intervening time, the whole restaurant has been remodeled. The New Aqua Grill was a great surprise. Great interior decor (not noisy and visually appealing). Service was good. Food was excellent. I had the scallops atop a bed of angel hair pasts with the most incredible sauce I've ever tasted....

Good meal. It I thought the kitchen was slow. Service was okay. The restaurant was crowded so that may explain the kitchen and service.

In comparison to other seafood restaurants,the quality for the price was not there. I was there with a business client who's English is not the best, and when he apologized and asked her to repeat the description of the meal, she actually rolled her eyes! Not the level of service I would expect. Dining room didn't open until 5pm (didn't... More

The appetizers that were passed around (coconut shrimp, meatballs, and stuffed mushrooms) were all very good. My entree was the short ribs which were excellent. They had great flavor and were fall off the bone tender. There were 70 people in the party and they staff did a great job serving everyone. This was my first visit to this restaurant... More

We ate here with some client recently, while they were very easy to work with for the planning, the execution was a bit disheveled. The food was all good, I enjoyed the crab cakes as well as a shrimp appetizer (I dont remember which one). The entrees were good and the dessert was decadent. The issue was the service, the... More
