My wife and I ate at the Aqua Grill after a day watching the TPC at Sawgrass Golf Tournament. Very convenient to the golf course. Reservations for 6:30. We sat immediately. Service was friendly and prompt. Food was excellent. Great grouper and a fabulous lobster rissotto. Price was high, but worth the experience!

We stopped by here last night and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and there was a quite a variety to select from. I had the Rainbow Trout Oscar which was very, very good. Wait staff was extremely attentive and the service was topnotch. Very much recommended.

My family and one friend (7 diners) had dinner on a quiet Sunday night - we had read great reviews on trip advisor - even the not great reviews did not prepare us for the awful food we were served, the fresh fish dish that two diners ordered was inedible and we sent it back - three of us ordered...

We went for an early dinner after watching a practice round at the Players' Championship. The restaurant and bar were VERY busy, but bartender Zack got us seated right away, and provided great service! The food was a little pricey, but it was delicious! I'm sure it's even better on a day/evening that isn't quite as busy.

I called Aqua Grill on Saturday night for a reservation for Sunday, Mother's Day. Knowing it was the week of "The Players" and this is the known hot spot, I was not counting on them having space for a table of 15! I called and they said, "of course, we have room." We arrived at 11:00am with 20 people (our... More

We returned to Aqua last evening having visited it twice in May 2014. The service was efficient, friendly and not obtrusive, the best part of the evening. The food was ordinary. Started with calamari which was small pieces, not enough sauce and a very uninspiring taste. Next had a beet salad which was a $6 premium over the house salad.... More
