“Upscale/uptown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great atmosphere and excellent food, but overpriced. Finally offering so e good weekend specials and some happy hour deals. New owner has made it less formal, so it should attract more customers

Terry,
Thank you for your feedback and comments. In November Aqua took a Look at our menu and took action to Maintain a high quality yet also look at better pricing for our guest. We based on feedback have achieved that. I am a firm believer in Fresh Foods and we have almost no food that comes in frozen. We wanted to strive and maintain a high quality and also deliver value. I look forward to any further comments you may have in the future.
We do have several items listed below $10.00 including a limited time offer menu that features all fresh food.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This restaurant is great if you don't want a chain or super formal. It offers a great lounge menu, delicious drinks, and a nice cozy dining atmosphere. The patio is super as well. Their motto is perfect. Eat. Drink. Be Happy. That is just how we felt when we left there!

“Meet the Parents”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

This establishment was a great setting to our parents' having dinner for the first time. It was elegant but not uptight. The food is exquisite.

“It used to be excellent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

It had been several months since we last dined at Aqua 103. We always enjoyed our dinners there and especially liked the martinis, so we were interested to see what all of the changes everyone has been talking about were. When we entered we noticed how the lounge and the lounge business have grown. We were quickly seated by our favorite waiter, We started by ordering drinks, which as always, were excellent. We ordered the cheese plate to share for our appetizer and then we both selected crabcakes, as we remembered them as being one of the best things on the menu. The cheese plate featured several excellent cheeses, including a wonderful aged gouda. It seemed to take forever before our dinners arrived. They were disappointing. The crabcakes used to be large, broiled lump crabcakes. The ones that we were served were small, deep fried and full of filler. They were really rather disappointing. Nowhere near as good as they used to be. By this point in time, we had spent over two hours in the restaurant for one round of drinks, one shared appetizer, and two disappointing entrees. We had prior arrangements for nine o'clock, so we had to forgo dessert in order to be there on time. Besides the excellent martinis and good cheeses, it was a disappointing evening. It will probably be a while before we return.

“Happy hour and lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Aqua 103 has made some big changes. Lunch for $7.00- all you can eat soup and salad. Other items at affordable prices. Happy hour is amazing. 1/2 price drinks and appetizers. There is a nice lounge menu as well. Best crab cakes ever!
