Since many years this is my favorite restaurant in Manhattan. The sea food is spectacular! The choice of oysters amazing. Especially the small ones are difficult to find in Europe. The Bouillabaisse is world class, outshining most French restaurants. The atmosphere is lively and it is highly recommended to book early.

I'm going to start this review by saying that I'm not a fan of shellfish or quite a lot of seafood in general other than a few bog-standard fishes. But if that's you too, all I can say is, get over it and get a table at Aquagrill! I went here with friends, dressed quite casually on a hot and... More

Dined here for lunch with some business associates. Bottom line is excellent seafood…and you’ll pay for it. Started with oysters chosen from an extensive list of options, then opted for the cod, with capers, artichoke hearts and sautéed spinach. Simple, flakey, super-fresh, and delicious. Décor is casual and cozy, simple, with a “diner-like” stool-trimmed bar, and simple bistro tables, inside... More

Went on a Tuesday night on recommendation from hotel. Cab to SoHo. Great atmosphere. Bluefin tartare and oysters were awesome. Had miso sea bass. Fantastic.

An extensive seafood menu with all the dishes our group of four had well prepared. Over twenty types of raw oysters to choose from also. The service was very good and the staff graciously accommodated special requests and substitutions. The prices (especially for New York) were quite reasonable. If you want good seafood in lower Manhattan it's hard to top... More

Great location! Great food! We sat outside and enjoyed a beautiful NYC evening. The food was excellent and our waiter couldn't have been more attentive! Go you'll love it.

It's my favorite seafood restaurant in NYC. The fish is always terrific, there's a huge variety of oysters, and they have a nice variety of specials. The prices are very reasonable, esp relative to the quality.
