We had always wanted to stop at this restaurant, since is on the water, & finally made it. We arrived early for dinner & were asked if we had a reservation. We did not, but were seated outdoors near the water which we wanted. It was nicely decorated with beautiful hanging baskets of petunias along the railings. We were only... More

Liked the location very much, outdoor dining area was nice. The food was tasty and the amount was satisfying. Members of our party ordered the veal chop and said it was outstanding. The evening we went there was also a catered affair going on. We walked in on the event because the entrance to the main restaurant was not clear... More

We are unaware if this place is reservations optional or required because when we walked in on a Wednesday(mind you there was only 4 other tables there total) the manager snarkily asked "Two with a reservation this evening?!" which we did not have. We were sat and she came back declaring she would be waiting on us, as if we... More

We recently held a birthday party for 50 people at Aqua Vino, and chose to do a brunch. It was excellent, from the mimosa fountain to the Belgian waffles to the sausage-greens-potatoes-egg dish whose name escapes me! The staff had set up a room for us, but the weather was so lovely that we moved outside to the covered patio... More

We arrived 10 minutes before dinner hour. We said we could wait but Patrick insisted on seating us. He was friendly, attentive and yes...the food was excellent. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it when you're looking for a nice place to go for almost any occasion. Classy, reasonably priced. Nothing not to like.

Great location on warm day to sit canal side & enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner ... Pleasant wait staff . Small bar area but the outdoor space makes up for that :)

There is something wrong with the poster Morris C, must have been fired as a dish washer or just jealous of people who excel in life. There is absolutely no smell of sewage outside the restaurant and it has a nice view, look at all the reviews, they are all excellent, all the people on Facebook love this place also.... More

The food at aqua vino is fantastic. The last three times I have been there I have tried a different entree and couldn't be happier. The haddock florentine, any veal dish and the "tomahawk" are outstanding...highly recommend

We have been to Aqua Vino many times and have always had a positive experience. The food is delicious and the service is exceptional! My husband and I both love the Chicken Saltimbocca but have not been disappointed with any entree we ordered. Geno's greens are excellent and so is the calamari. This place is a two thumbs up!

Have eaten here several times and totally pleased every time. Service excellent, nice view, and excellent food. Desserts were outstanding. Would recommend as one of the top five restaurants in the Utica area.
