We made a last minute reservation for 9 people and were quickly accommodated. A few members of our party were late, which caused us to linger past closing time, but we didn't feel at all rushed. Unfortunately, my martini was not really cold, so it wasn't as good as it could have been. It was served in a champagne glass... More

We enjoyed the halibut, asparagus and substituted mashers for the quinoa. Everything was superb. The asparagus was not too soft, not too hard. The halibut was moist and flavorful! We had creme brulee for dessert and it was fabulous. The service was very good as well.

You get the feeling everyone is fit and healthy in Corvallis. And the restaurants may have something to do with that. The food is very good and very light and fresh. Aqua's food is wonderful and I always enjoy a visit there. The fish and seafood is excellent with a twist of spices. Very good restaurant helped by good friends.

I've been by this restaurant a hundred times in my life but had never stopped in for a meal. There are such mixed reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. I enjoyed that you have a choice of seating options; dining at tables by the front window, booths in the bar or even casual sofa seating. I was surprised by... More

Date night and we picked Aqua. On our way to an evening of romance and 7:30 curtain. Endive appetizer very sexy. Main course of lamb shank had tons of wonderful meat. Very happy with our choice.

I have been back to Aqua twice since my review of last year when I felt that the menu had way too many spicy choices. I was delighted to find the menu much improved in offering more less-highly seasoned choices and a varied selection of small-plates. I particularly enjoyed the golden beet salad and the chicken lettuce wrap. There were... More

Made a reservation and asked for a window seat. Even confirmed again via phone. When we arrived, all window seats were full and nobody knew that we had asked. Service was disorganized and unprofessional across the board. Plates not picked up between courses. Drink order had to be placed at the bar due to disappearing server, and the bartender 'tasted'...

We were 4 adults and one child. To our delight the menu offers a little of everything and between us we sampled the locally grown golden beet salad, fresh fish and beef tenderloin you could cut with a fork. Everything was perfectly prepared, service was attentive and timely and prices what you would expect to pay in a finer steak... More

I think after all the hype I expected this amazing restaurant. I found it average to a little boring. I went by myself for dinner. I had a fish appetizer and duck confit spring rolls. The duck confit was very heavy. I would have put it on a winter menu. The orange sauce did nothing to lighten the dish. The... More
