“Consistent Quality”
Reviewed February 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I am a regular patron here for dinner, brunch an special occasions. Food is delicious, creative and plentiful. Wait staff is comprised of veterans, dedicated to making your dining experience here exceptional. Use Open Table to reserve and save yourself extra effort.

“Once was enough for us”
Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited Aqua Tera 1/11/14. After seeing many positive reviews we were eager to try it. The decor is clean and welcoming. The seating is laid out well and comfy. The staff we dealt with were good to great. Our server was definitely tops well spoken, polite and attentive. Unfortunately that about sums it up for the good stuff. Now to the food........ I will list:
Roasted beet salad: mixed greens, some fried crusty thing and beets-> we have had roasted beet salads before and the beets have always been warm, however this time we got a standard salad with beet cubes-semi frozen cubes of beets. Not at all what we expected, but the greens were great.
-Asian shrimp appetizer- very good just to much sauce, but still very tasty
-French Onion Soup- not bad- neutral-
-Crusted Cod- the fish was cooked well but very little flavor
-NY Strip- ordered medium got closer to rare- despite the bright pink interior the top of the meat was very touch and charred ( perhaps cooked at to high of a temp) I was unable to eat most of it. The potatoes that came with it were good. My veggies were cold.
-Sangria not bad, but way to much alcohol not sure if thats bad or good. I suppose that depends on your company.
In general our server / waitress was great and did try but there are limits to what a server can do. We ordered our appetizer and it came in under 10min then we waited 30minutes for salad, in all fairness the lettuce was really good. We then waited another 30min for our food. My wife and I are never in a rush and while the time may bother some my wife and I didnt mind the wait but after a wait like that we expected good food. I'm sorry to say it but I have had better steaks at Outback. This place has lots of potential but my wife and I will not be back

“Fist Class Restaurant In Pearl River”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

My wife and family have been dining at this restaurant since it opened. We try to get there once a week if possible. This beautifully renovated restaurant is our favorite place to dine. The owners Steve, Stacey and son Nickolas are always so welcoming and accommodative. The food quality is first class. Jean, who usually serves us, is always so friendly and professional. The atmosphere is also very charming. This restaurant has a great bar areas where you can also have dinner. They also serve a great Sunday brunch. This is spacious restaurant with several private rooms to accommodative both large and small groups. It also had a large parking area with easy access from/to the street. This is a special place and I highly recommend it.
