Good food and service, limited menu during these times
The menu was very limited, I had the scallops and my wife had the halibut. They were both very good. The prices were high, but not excessive. Nice decor in this restaurant.

Birthday dinner with family & friends
Our first visit to Aqua Terra. Surprisingly varied menu, and all of our ordered items came in a timely manner, hot and well presented, appetizers as well as entrees included. Service (Kelsey) was amazing too. We were here for two hours and the time flew-by.

Party of four, last Saturday night , 3/07. Scallops & prime rib were wonderful. Manhattans were great !! I ordered the only veal dish on the menu & it was so over cooked I couldn't't eat it. I told my server but no action. Service & atmosphere are good. I will try it again. I DO recommend it but not the veal dish.
