Excellent Seafood Restaurant, Always Reliable, Consistently Fresh
By GothamFoodPorn on 3/14/2013
Uh...this place is now my officially favorite "go to" seafood restaurant. It's always reliable consistently serving fresh and excellent seafood. Their peppered tuna carpaccio is INCREDIBLE. And they have an excellent raw bar menu... I took lots of photos there: www.gothamfoodporn.com

My husband and I had dinner at the Aquagrill on Friday, June 22nd. We both enjoyed our meals and the service was impeccable. Our waiter was attentive and very pleasant. Next time we visit NYC we will definitely go to the Aquagrill again.
Great for Oysters and Seafood!

Went here on date night with my husband and absolutely loved it! We came for the oysters and were very impressed by the selection (they had over 30 different varities)! The appetizers and entrees were delicious, crisp sear on the fish, and a nice combination of flavors on the sashimi (yellow tail and spicy eggplant). Wine list was extensive. Service was great. You do need a reservation, but I came on a Friday night and was able to call in the afternoon and get an early reservation at 6:30. I highly recommend this place!

Excellent Meal and Service

Really enjoyed my dinner as did my friend. She had already dined there previously, but it was the first time for me. Very friendly and professional service. Our server was knowledgable, made excellent recommendations and was nice without being overbearing. I had the Cod and my friend had Crab Cakes, both of which were cooked to perfection. The accompanying mushroom ravioli for the Cod were light and fluffy and the Crab Cakes were said to be perfect. For dessert we tried the sorbet sampler and the strawberry rhubarb pie. Both were heavenly. The bouche and little dish of cookies were also very very good. the place was busy early on and was packed by the time we left. Seating is a little tight, but really worth it for the food and service.
Great Service and Food

The food is exquisitely divine. Each bite melts in your mouth. Seriously. I would come here with a group of probably no more than 4 people since the spacing is tight but the atmosphere is grandiose. This would be a great date spot.
really disappointing for brunch

We went to Aquagrill for a weekend brunch, party of 4. We took a really good Grilled Rare Yellowfin Tuna sandwich, fresh fish well-cooked, a nice but not surprising Warm Grilled Chicken Salad, a disappointing too dry Aquagrill Big Burger and finally the Traditional Eggs Benedict which was really difficult to eat. The eggs were well cooked but the ham was elastic and absolutely not good (I had to remove it), the potatoes looked like old and totally burned and the overall plate had a strange taste. The waiters who bring or remove plates are really rude, grumpy and not attentive. This restaurant is probably of a nice value for fish but to avoid for a Â“classicÂ” brunch.
not worth the hype, but good bar

We had great service and enjoyed the oysters and florida stone crab legs immensely. However, our bouillabaisse was sub-par and lacked the saffron promised in the menu. We ordered the red drum fish but after ordering, they said they ran out but could put the barramundi in the same sauce; we agreed. Upon arrival, they had mistakenly served the barramundi in the turbot sauce, not the red drum. The waiter realized and apologized. We decided to forgive because it was already so late in the evening. After declining a dessert, they brought a pumpkin dessert as an apology, but we were too full. We politely declined the dessert but thanked them for their generosity. We expected a little compensation for our efforts and their failed attempt, but nothing was removed from the bill. We left a 20% tip and our comments. The food was not as good as we expected, and in these economic times, not worth your dime. Good luck if you try it, but your best bet is getting some drinks and oysters at the bar. At least, that's all we'll ever do in the future.

Been going here for a number of years and went again last night after a while. Fabulous meal. Had the striped bass special. The food was great, lots of little extras like the amuse bouche and also the cookies. The part that stood out to me was the service. Unlike what often seems to be the case at many restaurants these days, these folks seem to want and value your continued business. They couldn't have been more accommodating, friendly, and service oriented. It was no surprise that it was packed, but even so they really do what they can to offer alternatives at the bar or at the bar area community table to keep you there. Great to have a good seafood restaurant that consistently kicks out a quality experience.

I went to Aquagrill once before for drinks and oysters, and I decided to go back for dinner. Am I happy I did! We started out with a variety of oysters (Canoe Lagoons from Alaska) were the best. The entrees were simply delicious...I had Fettucine with Shrimp and Pesto, and my girlfriend had one of the specials, which was Wild Striped Bass with Crab Risotto. Everything was so incredibly tasty, and the service was so fantastic, that I plan to go back often.
