He, we used to love the old place. And, this visit was fine. The food was not as good as some of the other places in PVB, but it was fine. Was it worth a return visit for us? Probably not. She service was erratic. She was all over us and then disappeared for a while. Each time she returned... More

Checked out the reviews online before I went to this place & even though ratings weren't great I decided to give it a chance.When I entered the restaurant it had a strong fish/seafood odor that let me know their seafood would be a bit too ripe for me so I wouldn't be having any seafood.I was a bit disappointed.Great menu...

I am a foodie and this is a must stop!!! I took my husband here for his 60th birthday and was ecstatic that my choice was perfect. We split some appetizers--Lobster/Crabcakes which were good, Coquille St. Jacques which was really awesome but the Seafood Chowder was stellar!!! I have to say I did not use my salt and pepper shaker... More

We went late and had the after hours menu - food was very good and very creative. Bar scene if great and wine list by the glass is extensive! Definitely check it out.

I have lived in Jacksonville for over 25 years and had never eaten at Aqua Grill. The reviews never sounded like a place I would enjoy. But, I heard they had redone the restaurant and gave it a try. It was excellent. The wait staff was extremely accommodating (it was my Dad's 92nd and we needed a quiet table) and... More

My best friend is visiting from out of town and we decided to try the Aqua Grill & had one of the best dining experience in our 50+ years of friendship. Our waitress, Ashley, was incredible & certainly made the evening memorable. We started out with the Oyster Rockefeller & fried Calamari & thoroughly enjoyed both...the oysters while on the... More

This was our first time since the Aqua Grill moved into their new building. The menu was pretty much the same but the feel of the old building was better at least as far as I am unconcerned. Really enjoyed the meatball appetizer.

I liked the way the renewed the place (was there 8y ago). The starter (calamari) were delicious. The main dish (shrimp) were good. Like the dark beer we were offered that stay on that and not go to wine.

I do believe I am in love with this restaurant!! I had eaten here a few years ago when I was in town on business and was recommended by the Marriot concierge for great local seafood. I did enjoy the food so when I returned to Florida over the new year, I decided to bring my husband along this time... More
