Wonderfully fresh and delicious seafood put together in imaginative and delicious preparations.
Love the staff. Unfortunately, don't love how loud it can get. Notwithstanding that, one of my faves in NYC.

Amazing! Food, service and value. I wish I lived in NYC so I could be regular. We went for an anniversary dinner and were totally happy. Loved this place, the food and our waiter Jordan.

Fantastic meal! The hamachi sushimi appetizer was amazing and the main courses we had- the char and the scallops were both prepared perfectly and were fresh and delicious. I was surprised by a great strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream with a candle for my birthday. Sorry I can’t remember our server’s name but he was very helpful and friendly. The restaurant is in a great location in Soho so we went for a wonderful stroll to walk off an excellent dinner- a truly fine dining experience we will definitely be back!!

Jerry May be the best waiter we have ever had. This was our second visit with him. Each was remarkable. Again the falafel,covered salmon is an amazing entry.

The table, in theory, was perfect for us to discuss business, however the noise level was excessively loud. While I thought the food and wine were great, I would definitely not recommend this restaurant if you need to have a discussion as I could not hear the person sitting across the table.

For somewhere that has such a high reputation for its seafood, we didn't really think it was anything special. It was also pretty loud, and I was seated on the aisle and people kept bumping into me all night.

Aquagrill continues to deliver the goods. It is always full, and everyone seems completely satisfied. From the perfect martinis to superb oysters to solid entrees, it’s reliable (if not risky or trendy). I do wish the prices (esp of the oysters) were a bit gentler, but I’ve been going for years and don’t plan to stop!!

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We loved the ambiance, location, food and service. Gerald was an amazing waiter and made us feel at home. The food tasted very fresh and the oysters were marvelous. My boyfriend also received a complimentary dessert for his birthday. We absolutely loved this place and will be returning.

Setting on the terrace was perfect. Food was excellent. Not quite Daniel Boulud, but way way above the average good restaurant. A little over-priced but not bad. Service was perfect. Would definitely recommend.

First time at AQUAGRILL. Huge fish selection and all perfectly cooked. Excellent service, not rushed at all. A pescatarian’s delight. Portions a little small. Reservation was absolutely honored. We were on time and so were they. Interesting drinks. Slightly expensive wine list but we were delighted with our Sancerre, served properly chilled. Everyone loves their entrees but the chocolate walnut tart was a little bland. Looking forward to the next time!

It was our grandson's 17th birthday. He lives part of the year on a sailboat in Maine. We picked him up on Sunday afternoon just past at Penn Station so we had the excuse to take him to lunch. We live 80 miles away in very western, NJ. He and I had the Plateau of cold shellfish and I had the Billi Bi. We engaged with the owner/hostess or hostess about the Biolli Bi which I have been having for the 15 years or so we have coming to the restaurant. My grandson had tasted my soup and loved it. We were given the recipe for it from the hostess/owner. The shellfish was as good as any he has had in Maine. A sweaty Sunday afternoon was made great by our visit to Aquagrill. HIs grandmother had the codfish cake sandwich. Three very happy people!
