New Years Eve

Enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner at Aqua Vino with friends. The menu was abbreviated, and the prices inflated to pay for the entertainment. However the service and food was excellent. There was a live band that was very enjoyable. We stayed until midnight and the restaurant staff passed out hats... read more

It was a terribly cold and rainy night, the restaurant was warm and inviting. My husband and I were in the mood for a good dinner, the food surpassed our expectations. We started with the appetizer of Long Hot Fried Peppers, OK the hot should have warned us, happy I had butter on my bread to cut the hot, but... More

We simply could NOT have been treated any better for our event. We had outstanding food, outstanding service, and an extraordinary facility to host a retirement party for 150 people. From the menu planning to the color scheme for decoration, the entire event was first class. If there was ANYTHING bad about AquaVino, it's that it simply cannot hold more... More

Great food. Shrimp and crab bisque was loaded and delicious. Turkey panini, philly steak sandwich and buffalo chicken wrap all delicious. Great sweet potato fries. Great waitress. Nice view.

We love it here for dinner, but their lunch is excellent too! The Reuben was one of the best I have ever had! Sweet potato fries were great too! I will be coming here more often for lunch!

We looked for somewhere to spend NY's Eve locally where there was music for dancing and a good meal. We were delighted to find that Aqua Vino was having music and dinner. We were treated very well. There were 22 of us. We had a waitress and waiter who introduced themselves to us and told us that anything we needed... More

The food is full of flavor as is the atmosphere loaded with friendship. Their menu has plenty of variety and tons of value. If you enjoy dining at a bar there is none better.

This review is for the banquet services. I threw a 50 person party and Trish/Aqua Vino were wonderful. The room looked great and the food was excellent. Everyone was very pleased as sometimes it's a roll of the die with buffets but every single dish we had was delicious. Incredibly kind people and didn't bat an eye when we stayed... More

We ate here on a Friday for the first time. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. I had the chicken saltimbocca which included a salad and one side for $22. It was a large portion and so flavorful for a chicken dish. My wife had the sea bass which she said was fresh and delicious. Great food at great... More

We have eaten there on several occasions and really love eating outside in appropriate weather. Quite a nice upscale atmosphere. We have not observed or smelled any raw sewage floating along. A dependable good meal, slightly above average for the region, especially if you eat outside. Inside is a bit crowded on a weekend evening. Food very reliable, average value.
