Always, always, a great meal.

We love Acqua. It has always been very good, and it seems to have gotten better! Either of the two chicken dishes are my favorites. Halibut and Branzino also very tasty. Always great service and a cool atmosphere.

Together with friends we had a fabulous meal at Acqua last night. The tuna crudo appetizer special started us off on the right note. The monkfish special was scrumptious and the seafood paella the right combination of spice and texture. The best I have had since Santiago de Compostela! We shared two desserts, the warm Valhrona chocolate cake and the... More

Took the family here while they were in town to visit. Mom, grandma, brother and sisters. We ate so much we needed a nap. The food is the best quality you can get, expertly prepared backed by a solid meticulous Craft Cocktail selection. Jenna who manages the restaurant was endearing and talented. (she designed the cocktail list) Beautiful setting on... More

We had Mother's Day Brunch at Acqua! The meal started with a delicious ciabatta bread that was baked that morning. Appetizers included scrumptious mussels and refreshing salad. Their pancakes were the fluffiest I have ever had in my life, and the eggs benedict was off the charts! Other entrees included Faroe Island Salmon and filet mignon, which were also cooked... More

I came here for a birthday and promotion celebratory dinner and was pleasantly surprised. My date and I sat at a nice circular table in the second dining room upstairs. It gave us a nice perspective over the restaurant and had a balcony behind us which was a cool feature. The staff here is really great, everyone was super nice... More

We had the mediterranean sampler and the salmon...excellent dishes and excellent presentation!!! Congratulations to the Executive Chef and Management and Staff. Bit noisy place but that's ok. If you want to quiet area one could eat downstairs... will definitely be back.

Great for lunch or dinner - food and service is great - you can sit outside in the warmer weather or downstairs by the bar which is a little more informal than upstairs - they do have a "scary" elevator should you need to use one!
