Last year, we ate here and loved it. This year we wanted to eat here because we enjoyed it so much last time. This time we ate at the bar, next to the oyster guy. We came so early at 5:30 and just started eating oysters and some appetizers. At 6pm we were able to order from the dinner menu.... More

When my usual SoHo spot was unexpectedly closed for the day, I dove into a new dining adventure at Aquagrill. Wish I never had to re-surface (or stop eating)! Oysters a-bed glistening ice were expertly delivered to the table by attentive staff. Chef's Specialty, Atlantic Grilled Salmon was superb; I requested a spoon to enjoy every drop of the sea... More

The place was full on a Wednesday night at 9. So that was my first hint that the food good. From the oyster to the entree it was amazing. I know New Yorkers are spoil with great food all around them. But I must say this place was on my top 10 ever. I love to travel all over and... More

Aquagrill is the BEST seafood restaurant in NYC. The seafood and fish are consistently fresh and delicious. They have a very good wine list which helpfully highlights the best value and best quality wines. The bartenders are very knowledgeable about wine, daily specials and all of the choices on the menu, especially the daily featured oysters.

Perhaps the widest selection of oysters - West Coast and East - in New York. All very well looked after and presented. On a recent visit on a Tuesday night we found the place crowded and noisy. I don't resent other people having a good time, but that scene is not for me. The other dishes we tried were OK,... More

…..if I would come back here again. TA rating system is either average or very good. This is somewhere in-between, and maybe closer to average. If you were just having oysters for sure, other seafood selections were as I have described. The restaurant is crowded in, and your bubble will be small.

We decided to go to come here for dinner and were seated quickly in the covered outdoor area alongside the sidewalk. It provides a great view of the people walking by and is as close as being outside as you can get. We ordered two dozen oysters of various kinds to start and they did not disappoint. All the seafood... More

We made a reservation on the same day. 6:45 was the best fit for a Sunday evening reservation for 8. We arrived on time and the place was full and noisy. Our table was out on the covered terrace. Tables are a little close together. The food was good, although perhaps a little disappointing given the ranking that this has... More

Aquagrill is amazing! The waitress was very helpful and attentive. The "warm shrimp cocktail" was delicious, and the roasted Chilean Sea Bass was even better. Loved it, and we plan on returning!
