Was here for a day work event there. First the location is stunning and we were blessed with beautiful weather. It was hard to actually work and not stare out the window. Loved they had the big windows to showcase the view as well. The chandelier in the middle of the room was gorgeous as well. I can see why... More

My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Harbor room at Acqua almost 2 weeks ago now. I am not one to like wedding food at all and actually dread when the cheese and crackers are taken away, but the chicken served at our wedding was the juiciest chicken I may have ever had. For once I actually... More

We have had at least one dinner on Acqua's deck overlooking the Niagara River for each of the last five summers. In our experience, the food has always been very good, and the service has been fine. I wish summer in Buffalo, NY lasted longer. Oh well, we'll look forward to next year.

Acqua provided just the classy, understated party we wanted for our daughter's wedding reception last Friday evening. Ali, the event coordinator was great to work with from start to finish. The Riverview Room was lovely with our vintage theme, providing a beautiful view of the marina and the Niagara River. The buffet appetizers while guests were arriving and then the... More

Worst dining experience of my life. It ended up with me having to call the police to stomach settling my check with their sneaky, lying, offensive, harassing, clueless Manager Nathan who comped our meal.

The location of this restaurant is magnificent, located right on the Niagara River. Unfortunately, what it possessed in location it lacked in food and service. We were greeted at the restaurant entrance by patrons smoking. There was an ashtray parked by the main doors where smokers congregated. We should have turned around then. Our hostess and server were very pleasant.... More

40 minutes just waiting for our drinks to arrive. When we decided to leave due to the horrible service the manager and waitress were rude.

Five of us went for an early brunch. All of us were delighted with just about everything we ate! The omelet station was well equipped, with some extras like shrimp. The roast beef was nicely cooked, with some rare, some not so rare. A lovely cheese selection, a nice salad bar with some fresh fruit, a variety of hot selections,... More

Decided to try this restaurant for Easter brunch. I would never recommend anyone to eat at this establishment. The service was horrible.... First we were seated at a table with soaking wet chairs... When we told our server her response was well there was a napkin placed in the chair and she doesn't know where it went. We had to... More

Went for Restaurant Week. All of the courses were perfectly cooked and seasoned. I was impressed how tender the scallops were. The service was excellent. I can't wait to go back!
