“Nice dinner out with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Four of us went to Aqua 103 to celebrate a birthday. We had a very pleasant time and great food. Fried Calamari and Crab dip for appetizer was very tasty. For the main course we had (1) Chicken Dijon grilled over sautéed Spinach with mashed potatoes. (2) Surf & Turf which was a 5oz filet Mignon with Bordelaise sauce, and Lobster tail, mashed potatoes and vegetables. (3) Mahi Mahi over asparagus with hollandaise sauce. (4) Pan seared Scallops over Forbidden Black Thai Rice and vegetable medley. We didn't try any dessert as the main course was filling.
We had very attentive service from Hannah, prices were what would you would expect from a fine dining establishment. We definitely will go back to Aqua 103 again, I would recommend it for an enjoyable dinner out.

“Very disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

My spouse wanted to treat me to dinner here for my birthday. As I have some very strict dietary concerns, I perused the menu online before we arrived, and settled on a suitable dish. Apparently the website has not been updated, because that dish was not on the menu. The chicken dish that I chose was overcooked and dry. My husband's choice of a seafood pasta was very mediocre. We felt the restaurant had no ambiance, and was very overpriced. the server was attentive but not spectacular, and there were very few diners on a Friday night. City residents consider this to be the top restaurant in town, but I was certainly not impressed.

“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.
