Very attentive service, quick seating, and while expensive, worth the price. I had the grouper, and it was the best grouper I've ever had. Fantastic taste, prepared to perfection, super fresh. My wife had a crab salad, with lumps of crab - very, very nice.

The seafood here is amazing. I had the crab cake sandwich, the best I ever had. The bread they serve is made fresh and one of the best I have had. Avoid if you are vegetarian no options at all.

Had dinner here our last night in NYC. I will say the service was excellent. The oyster selection is incredible and delicious. We ordered the seafood plateau for two. I thought the shrimp were overcooked and do not like my shrimp served hot. The desert menu is to die for. My wife had a chocolate encrusted walnut tart that she... More

Based upon the quality of the fresh fish and waiter knowledge of the produce and cooking options, this is a good place to eat and enjoy seafood. The service was also excellent as was the wine list, all reasonably priced. Regrettably we would never eat here again, as in our opinion the customer rest rooms and adjoining BOH area were... More

Had a fantastic business dinner last night with colleagues. Fantastic fresh oysters and expertly prepared fish. Everyone loved the meal. Very good wine list with some very well priced bottles that won't break your bank. Service was perfect. It's not Le Bernadin but then again it doesn't pretend or try to be. Will absolutely go back again. Really great.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I don't know where they get these giant yet deliciously scrumptious and juicy giant clams but they are shockingly consistent, and fortunately don't have a viagra effect the Chinese know about who have extinctified all of the giant clams in the Coral Sea because of their supposed erectile qualities. 24 Different kinds of Oysters pretty much...

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
