Everyone's getting into seafood, but Aquagrill is still the best. From the gorgeous oysters (have them at the bar) to the briny Manhattan clam chowder and bouillabaise to the plain grilled fish, everything is perfect. If it wasn't so casual--it's a real Soho cafe--it should have been showered with Michelin stars (if anyone cares.)

It's definitely not cheap, and it doesn't have the choicest atmosphere in the world (but it's not bad either), but the seafood is, as many here have said, simply the best. It's just nirvana - try the fresh and numerous varieties of oysters, presented in ice at the bar for your inspection. The tuna sashimi is just incredible, when they have it. It does get crowded, but when you have food like this, what do you expect? Make a reservation! we've brought numerous friends to aquagrill, all of whom now rate it their favorite seafood restaurant. Go there and you will too...

Ignore the person that complained about the wait time and service and yada yada. This type of person gets their panties in a ruffle because they had to wait, and then attempts to falsely degrade the rest of the experience. It's one of the best restaurants in the city. OF COURSE you're going to wait. The service is exceptional and the food is not only amazing, but the many flavors create pleasing taste memories. The Oyster selection is like no other as well. 5 Stars to AquaGrill for the best food, and very fair prices for what you get and the atmosphere in which you get it!

This is my favorite seafood place in NYC. We've never had a bad meal here. The food is always fresh and very creatively prepared. ..even the desserts are delicious (and they make great drinks too). The service is fantastic...they really take care of you. It puts places like Blue Water Grill to shame (and I happen to like Blue Water Grill). My only complaints are: it gets a little crowded (the tables are a bit close together) and the French waitress can be obnoxious (and I don't have anything against French people). But those are trifles. Aquagrill still rocks and is my number one choice for seafood in New York.

I have never had more creative seafood than what I have enjoyed here. It is always the freshest with enticing preparations that are not over done. I also love the warm romantic room and friendly professional service. A great place to eat, but I especially loe the outdoor seating, nothing beats a bowl of amazing bouillaibaise with a delcious bottle of rose on a beautiful evening. Trust me, you can not go wrong here!

Have been to most seafood places, but have to say this is still my #1 so far.. Awesome oysters, great light atmosphere, not a romantic place, but that is ok.

This is the place to go. Take it from someone who grew up eating fresh seafood - this is some of the best in the city. And the service matches. Wonderful dining experience!
