This restaurant boasts the finest of dining and incredible service. A group of 11 went for a late dinner last Saturday and to a person we had an amazing experience. Nothing but compliments for the food, "the best Table D'hote wine pairings I've ever had", and personal service that was second to none. Chantelle was perfect; absolutely everything you could...

While not regular visitors to Aqua Terra, over the years we have dined there in its current and previous incarnations. This visit, on Friday Apr 24th was, perhaps the best. We each enjoyed Pimms cocktails before dinner in the sitting area of the lobby. Though it was quite noisy with the after work TGIF groupies, we, nevertheless enjoyed relaxing after... More

This location is one of the nicer restaurants in Kingston. The food and service is very good and this is reflected in the cost. The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars on the food is that one of the pieces of veal that I had was quite 'chewy'. Otherwise the meal was great. I had the table... More

If you are looking for an amazing restaurant, the Aqua Terra by Clark is the place you want. It’s one of Kingston’s finest restaurants and a true gem in downtown Kingston. The food is delicious and tastefully presented. The service is friendly and the decor is chic, modern and elegant! Aqua Terra by Clark is an excellent restaurant!

Better than one might expect for a hotel restaurant in a small city. The food is good, but if they took a little more care it could be great. My shrimp appetizer was decent, but a lighter hand on the salt would have improved the sauce a lot. The lamb shank main course was a very well thought-out combination of... More

Given a gift card and not really knowing the resturant on the gift card we headed out. The Delta hotel parking atttendent was very helpful and directed us where to go. We showed up at the reservation host desk with no reservation on a Saturday night and not knowing we required any, hope was fading. The host said they didn't... More

Top notch experience all a round. First, SINCERE ~ five star service. We experienced comfort, respect, kindness and engagement. Not as if we were another patron, equality, as if we were at home with our families. Interesting, tasty, large menu. Something for everyone. The food had exceptional quality. The team that were employed there were polite, positive with great etiquette,... More

Dinner for 4 adults and 5 young kids. Restaurant and staff went above and beyond to accommodate 5 young kids. The food was excellent - steak, short rib, veal - all was delicious ! Excellent service made sure we were looked after. Great dining in Kingston that is very kid friendly. We will be back !

Our families have been going to Aqua Terra since it opened, when it had great food, varied menu and a fair price. Over the years everything has deteriorated. Our most recent visit was a major disappointment to all seven of us. This restaurant has gone from my favourite to one that I will no longer patronize.
