Recommended by a local. Best vegetarian enchilada I have ever eaten. Friendly staff ( I forgot my phone and our waiter chased us into the parking lot in the rain to give it to me) , delicious food, beautiful view right on the water. Try to go before the sun sets so you can see the great view. This is... More

I LOVE AGUA VERDE! GIVE ME THE FOOD NOW!!!! Sorry - Hi. This food is good. Seriously good. I mean it's probably not the best Mexican food you will ever eat, but its good, with an amazing view, and amazing atmosphere. We had our rehearsal dinner here down on the board walk and it was a beautiful meal. I would... More

It was very busy but we were able to work our way back to open tables in the outside lake front corner. View was ok but it was nice to sit outside! Food was very good and there was enough that you didn't walk away hungry!

Great set by the water and have some Mexican food place. Late afternoon and early evening place to take your student and you'll enjoy it.

The place was packed, obviously popular. Its location right on Lake Union gives it some nice views. Service was quick and efficient. Unfortunately, the food was not great...and that's why you go to a restaurant.

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...
