Parking is tough in the area, but you can park on the street for free, after 6 pm. Worth it! Great appetizers were mussel soup (had never tried this - GREAT). Warm octopus salad was very tender & tasty. Would order either one again. Halibut, Bronzino and scallops were all first class - superbly cooked & seasoned. Dessert were OK... More

I am always worried in places like Soho that I will get suckered into a tourist trap restaurant - all name and disappointing substance. But Aquagrill was the real deal. The décor is dated, and kitschy, including an overabundance of seashells on artwork, overhead lamps, etc. But the service and food was outstanding. It is a bustling place on a... More

Met husband in NYC for dinner as we do at least once a month. He wanted to try this place for a long time. Service was great by Colby. Avocado and lobster appetizer was just OK felt lobster overcooked. On the other hand Cod Cakes were terrific. I had the Wild King Salmon and it was very good but sauce... More

As I was here on business, I usually find going out of an evening slightly uncomfortable as a 'single'. However I was impressed by the attention and service received and totally enjoyed everything on offer. Would recommend without hesitation

I met someone for a business dinner at Aquagrill last week. When I mentioned to someone at my office I was going there, she gushed that it's her favorite restaurant. Being new to the neighborhood, I hadn't heard of it. But I am definitely going back. I had simply grilled striped bass that was brilliant. And I started with a... More

My wife and I took our honeymoon in NewYork and ate at the Aquagrill one evening. From the moment we stepped through the door the service was impeccable, the food was perfect and there was a nice atmosphere. The servings were on the large side, so we shared our appetisers and dessert. This was a perfect meal in a very... More

Was excited that after our 2nd trip in the past few months to New York we got a reservation to Aquagrill for my birthday. Had a 6pm reservation so we were seated first and started with the mesculin salad. Dressing was salty. My hubby makes a much better dressing. Hubby had oysters and soft shell crab and loved it, close... More

It was lunch and I met friends at Aquagrill. My friends were late.....the server never missed a beat! She said...its ok because she saw that I was very concerned. She was very relaxed and said just to go with the flow. I did and I took her advice!!! The wine list was good. The food (i.e. the Soy/truffle oil Salmon... More

My wife and I are frequent visitors of Aquagrill. We go in at any time and sit at the bar for champagne and oysters. The menu of oysters is amazing and are shucked and served right in front of you. The oysters are fresh and presented to perfection. If you are an oyster fan in NYC, you must check this... More

I went with friends on a warm fall night, I had one of the fish specials with a delicious red wine that was suggested by our waiter. We had a casual dinner, we were not rushed, The service was attentive and pleasant. Not inexpensive, but well worth it.
