Had a great night out with friends and will be coming back here again and again. The meal was wonderful from start to finish ... the desserts were to die for. If you are a lover of creme brulee....you need to get here right away. Best we've had outside of Paris. The attention to detail by everyone including our server Lindsay was much appreciated especially at the end of the evening when they presented us with a small gift to celebrate our anniversary. We will be coming back here very soon.

Having traveled extensively in my 60 years, I have experienced many a fine meal. The dinner
my husband and I had for our anniversary at Aqua was by far the best meal I have ever eaten!
The chef is very talented at accentuating each course with the perfect seasonings and creating
a pleasant presentation. The wait staff and hostess were attentive and very personable. I would
make one suggestion - check the restaurant's website for an updated menu. Tripadvisor is not
current as the menu changes with the seasons.

Following a ghost walk, we went to this restaurant for dinner. Had a great dinner sharing winter salad; stuffed figs; oyster; duck breast; and crab au gratin. Service was friendly and efficient. The restaurant has a good selection of wine.

We had a wonderful dinner on the cozy outdoor patio. The sczechuan peppercorn crusted tuna and the local catch tostada were both wonderful and the service was excellent.

We enjoyed our 3rd anniversary at Aqua recently and came away with a new favorite date night spot. The staff was warm and welcoming...not something you get everywhere these days. They made sure that we understood the tapas concept and answered any and all questions we had. The server was excellent at wine suggestions and with just a few words from me about what I liked, brought a sample to try to the table...it was exactly the type of wine that I love...and a new favorite. We were given a palate cleanser (fruit salad on individual little appetizer spoons) while we looked over the menu. We ordered two tapas to share. I ordered Oven Roasted Tomato Pie and he, Braised Beef Short Rib Bruschetta. I loved the tart/savoryness of the pie and the bruschetta was warm and wintry. We later shared the Caribbean Jerk Pork Tenderloin...it was perfection. The bread bowl and dipping oil that came with the meal was wonderful as well. We finshed the night off with Bananas Flambe (flamed tableside) and it was the perfect end to a perfect meal. The vibe is candlelit and cozy...soft singer/songwriter music in the background. There is a screened porch area that we want to come back in the warmer months and try. We loved every second of our time spent there and can't wait to get back to Experience Aqua again! Thanks Aqua...you made our Anniversary even more special!
