Very good selection of rolls and the couple we ordered at lunch were very fresh and tasty. Another diner ordered one of the salads and also commented on its freshness and variety of ingredients.

Aqua Reef had a great selection of sushi at reasonable prices, and all of it looked great. I ordered the Pad Thai, which is not really what they’re known for. And because I’m a bit of a Pad Thai purist, their spin on the dish...More

We ordered the spring rolls, which are typically made in rice paper and served cold, but we were given egg rolls instead. Thankfully, they tasted alright, but weren't what we wanted. We then ordered the philly and cancun rolls. They were horrible. Philly rolls are...More

I have been dining at Aqua Reef for many years and have never been disappointed. I appreciate that the quality continues to be at a high level--very few restaurants can claim this. There are still many items on the menu I haven't tried and hope...More

This is my favorite restaurant in town. The food is fantastic and the service is outstanding. I recommend the spider roll, rainbow roll, and the shrimp miso soup.

Magnificent menu with something for everything with inclusion detail provided. Everything presented in a natural, appealing manner. Service is outstanding and prices are appropriate.

The shrimp tempura is my favorite, crispy and never doughy. It came with only two green beans for the vegetables which is not the usual. The Crème Brule is the best I have ever eaten.
