Heaven, just heaven!

I was so sorry to see this closed. It was unique, delicious, and delightful. I eagerly await news (please) that it's reopening at a new location. If so and you hear of it do, do, do GO! Just go.

This place is no longer open. Went here months ago. It was decent food but I felt over-priced for what you got. The atmosphere was nice and it was a nice date spot. Especially for those first dates. Very trendy and nice serving presentation. But now... It's closed. So don't go

Dropped by last nite for quick bite only to find restaurant closed. Since been advised building was sold and a deli is going into this spot. So sad. Was such a fantastic place...always innovative, great staff. Nothing like it. Hope Acqua Via will reopen in another location in Olympia.

I love this quaint, cozy restaurant with its rustic charm, and flavorful, creative dishes. The menu offers something for everyone, and the wine list is great! It's my go-to place whenever I have visitors in Oly!

We're spending more time in Olympia because close family relocated there. After dipping into the local dining scene with mostly unsatisfactory endings, we're nominating Acqua Via as the best the city has. The restaurant has a an open, elegant atmosphere and seating design. It's feeling is intimate, but not claustrophobic. And you can converse . . . easily. Uban and... More

Hands down, exquisite food, carefully prepared, artfully presented, eclectic. Husband had the prawn salad...3 huge, perfectly cooked prawns, butter lettuce, veggies, great dressing. I had the morel mushrooms with fiddlehead ferns, sauted in a light sauce..amazing. Fiddleheads are rare, can only be harvested 2-3 months out of the year. Also had the yellowfin tuna...wonderful. The addition of a beet slice... More

If you like fried frozen food, do not read any further and go to any of the other hundred places in Olympia that consider 'chicken tenders' a meal. Acqua Via continues to amaze us with innovative, fresh, and incredilicious plates! The menu changes based upon seasonal availability and the pairings the chef conjures. We made our own small plates lunch... More
