Terrific Little Gem!

Love the Aquarium! Appetizers are amazing! The spinach salad was fabulous! The filet, melted in my mouth! And the desserts, oh my goodness!

I've eat anden at the Aquarium Lounge numerous times. I believe I have tried everything on the menu. My personal favorite is the 10 oz filet mignon prepared medium rare with hot peppers and garlic smashed potatoes. If steak just isn't your thing you should try the stuffed chicken- chicken stuffed with cream cheese and lobster with a crispy coating... More

This is a very small restaurant. Should have reservation. We had a excellent meal. But, less than desirable service. This is not an upscale restaurant, but does have upscale prices.

We've heard great things about the Aquarium Lounge and decided to go there for our anniversary. Reservations are necessary for eating in the small upstairs dining area. There is a bar downstairs with more seating for walk in customers. The decor is updated but I wasn't impressed with the chairs...more suited for a diner. We had oysters for an appetizer-... More

The meal was delicious. I had the salmon while my date had a steak. Even the bread with dinner was delicious! A really nice and accommodating wait staff also. Newly remodeled friendly atmosphere. I would recommend for anyone: singles, couples, families, friends, or co-workers! We will be going again that's for sure!!!

There are other establishments in the area that serve steak. However, if you want the best go to the Aquarium Lounge in Fairmont. The NY strip is my favorite. When I have gotten the ribeye or the delmonico they are equally delicious! Add the sauteed mushrooms and hot peppers and you have the perfect combination. Even the steak sandwich and... More

One of the better meals I've had in Fairmont this week. Had the NY strip steak which was tasty and cooked properly. Decent portion size too which isn't unusual around these parts. Caesar salad and bread ahead of the meal were solid. Ate in the bar area due to the upstairs dining room being reserved. Actually liked the character of... More

The restaurant was small,the food looked good but after 25 minutes it should. For the price of dinners the quality was mediocre.Im sure for Fairmont it's great but if you have eaten at a quality restaurant you could tell the difference. Some of the pasta sauce was cold. You never saw anyone to let them know. I will never be... More

I was treated to dinner at Aquarium with a business group. Start to finish, an outstanding meal. The appetizers came right behind the drinks and held us over until generously portioned entrees filled the table. I had a king cut of the prime rib. It came to me perfectly cooked - my thanks to the chef. The restaurant and bar... More

I've been to The Aquarium a handful of times. A few times before it burned down, and now once after it's been re-opened. The FIRST time I went there (2005?), I was very impressed. The steak was excellent, the atmosphere was great, and the pricing was justified. But every time I've gone there since, it's been awful. The waitstaff is... More
