Amazing food. The wife is pregnant so unfortunately we had to stay away from the raw bar but....wife got the sea scallops which were very good. But I got the John Dory special, which was easily one of the top fish dishes I have ever had in my life! And the mango tart desert was amazing! We have reservations all over the city during our week long stay in NY but I want to come back here for more.

This was a special occasion dinner for 10 people. Gio was our server. He was "pleasantly insulting", very funny, but really good at what he does. The drinks were great, and we were brought an amuse bouche of tuna tartare which was great. The breadbasket has an assortment, foccacia, cornbread, etc. Drinks were good, vodka on the rocks was almost to the rim. They have a variety of seafood, all with great sounding preparations that made it hard to choose. Scallops were huge, delicious. Same with the Chilean sea bass, and frankly everything else. They are well known for their clam chowder, however it was lacking in clams. One of the best seafood menus, and seafood restaurants I have been to. One more issue is that the sides are expensive and fairly small.

A really nice surprise for our first night in New York City. We had the soft shell crab and spring rolls as starters and shared the royale seafood plateau as a main. Everything tasted very good and the plateau was plenty for the four of us. Service was friendly and attentive.

We checked into our hotel on Varick St. and were able to walk a few blocks to Aqua Grill. We sat outside - a must on a sunny day in NYC. They have a menu with a variety of seafood selections including tuna, shrimp, crab, lobster and octopus....not to mention their raw bar selections. I ordered the octopus salad with was braised tenderly and served warm with Roasted Peppers and Peppercress in a Roasted Onion Vinaigrette. My husband ordered the Chilean Sea Bass sandwich with Marinated Cucumbers, Arugula, and Horseradish. Both selections were delicious and cooked perfectly. The server was very friendly and attentive. The restaurant offers a full bar service with a nice variety of wine, beer and spirits.
