Great Baja food overlooking the bay with fantastic margaritas. We rented kayaks and then paddled through the cut to the park and lived it. Then finished with awesome food with a view. Visit this place, you will love it!

A really interesting menu. It is not TexMex or Southwest but perhaps more Central Mexican. Really interesting drinks like tamarindo and horchata. The view is great. The furniture a bit tired. The service is a counter service with self service for first water and silverware. The complex and diverse menu does not lend itself well to this kind if service.

OK, so it is not major restaurant food, but I review places for what they are, not against every other place I’ve visited. This is a quick lunch or dinner kind of place, not a table cloth and table service place although they do deliver your food when it is ready. Aqua Verde is perched right about Lake Union and...

Has outdoor seating to a beautiful part of the lake- lots of boaters and paddle boarders. Food was good- everyone liked their dish. Service so so- they brought onions in my potato side even though I told them I have an allergy. They brought one person their biscuit and not the other two people. A bit sloppy there but worth...

This place was little confusing. I think you can order take out from the counter or be waited on. We thought it was "seat yourself" as the crowd for take out completely blocked the front door. We entered through the side door which we had to do for accessibility reasons. There is outdoor seating but we could not access it... More

Aside from the connected paddle club, we were not sure the draw of this place once we started eating. While the location is pretty, the prices were steep, ESPECIALLY compared to how it tasted. Two of us got margaritas - a classic over ice and a blended mango. Neither had almost any flavor (we are not sure how that's possible)... More

The atmosphere is great, right by water, and food is really wonderful (something for everyone, my favorite is anything with fish variety). The only issue with this place is that it gets way too crowded and almost impossible to get a table. There is a to-go counter (which isn't any faster, but still).

Good Mexican in a fun location. You can also rent paddle boats to explore Lake Union. Good drinks too. Be prepared to wait - even more so when the Seattle weather turns sunny & warm.

This is a great place to eat with tasty food and reasonable prices. We have eaten here dozens of times and I cannot remember every having a bad meal. This is a casual restaurant with nice views of Portage Bay. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner so be sure to try all three as there is something special... More

Best seafood we had in Seattle! Fish and shrimp tacos were perfect. Went around lunch and there was a line out the door- moved fast and we found a table on the patio. Listened to music and watched the kayakers and paddle boarders. Wonderful experience
