Had a chance to get out last minute with my husband mid-week. That's a great time to visit Aqua Terra because on the weekends they can get slammed, but if you go on the weekend just make a reservation so no worries!

Excellent service as expected from fine dining. The food was also good. I found my rib eye to be undercooked and hard to cut. I ordered it medium. I’ll try them again. I would say 4.5 stars for this visit.

Amazing!! Took my boyfriend for his birthday. Great dinner yet again. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is bc the service took forever!
