Excellent food. So so service. I usually had to wait to be served, and while was pleasant, they were just a little too slow for me!

We stayed at the hotel next door and walked over for breakfast in the morning. We chose buffet over table service, but the staff was very nice and came over (after getting the buffet) and made suggestions about food choices (i.e. try the omelet station). I thought the food was good and plentiful.

Had dinner here while staying at the Hilton. Billed as a restaurant, but really just an area off the lobby. Very loud! Service is absolutely horrid! Ordered an appetizer I never got. When my dinner came it was cold. Never received any beverage refill, as I never saw my waitress again after I ordered my food until I called her... More

Similar to the Hotel where it is based, Acqua hit the mark on service but not necessarily on its product. Service was fast and attentive without being intrusive. While drinks and the soup were fine, my main meal left quite a bit to be desired. I ordered the mushroom risotto with shrimp and was disappointed. The risotto was bland, although... More

I ordered when I was seated. To get seated I had to interupt the manager to ask if the restuarant was open and could I have a seat. Food took way too long but was worth the wait. Mary was my server and did a good job keeping my drink full and checking on me.

We were staying overnight a the Hilton for a stay and fly, and had dinner at the hotel restaurant. We never expect much from hotel restaurants, but this was a very surprising find! The food was excellent and the service was awesome! What a pleasant surprise!

Kind of a strange place. It looked like it might be undergoing some sort of renovation. It was quite large but almost no one was there. The friendly bartender seemed to be the waiter as well. The decor was more formal than the bright lighting and casual attire of the bartender and guests, so it was a strange vibe. The... More

The food was good but the bartender had horrible service. Im not asking that you take my order right away, but just acknowledge that I am there.

Service was pretty good, ordered a very specific drink which the server relayed exactly to the bar tender and then as expected the bartender did it wrong. Crab did was bland and crab in the dip was not obvious.

For dinner at the bar it was perfect. Due to the renovations dinner in the seating area would be less than pleasant in terms of ambience. But a great blue cheese burger with a side Caesar salad and wine with a friendly blonde bartender made the long day end well.
