Every restaurant in NYC should send its wait staff here to learn how to be a good waiter. Don't even get me started on the fabulous Manager. The fish is wonderfully fresh...especially the oysters. My only criticism is the noise level. Bad acoustics and loud piped in jazz were annoying. Would go back in a heartbeat, but probably only for lunch.

When I mentioned to a few foodie friends that I was going to Aquagrill today, their reaction was uniformly quizzical: "But, that's an OLD restaurant, isn't it?" The restaurant is indeed old by NYC standards (15 yrs. or so), but as my companion noted, old is often good in restaurant speak. The fact that the place was mobbed was indication that this is so. And everything about our experience supported the high ratings it has received. The service was lovely, including the cheery hostess who seated us soon after we arrived, even though we were 20 minutes early. The atmosphere is cozy and -- amazingly, considering the crowd -- quite bearable, noise-wise. The food followed suit. As the title of this review suggested, the poached eggs on my crabmeat Benedict were perfect, almost a miracle these days, especially on a very busy Sunday. I will be back for dinner soon!

Called Friday night, last minute. Got a table right away. My dinner companion was running late, and our table was held for 15mins with no fuss. The place was packed and our table was not in the most desirous spot. But when we looked around for black pepper or to ask when the coffee will be arriving, someone was ready to see to our needs. Thanks for a great meal and evening.

Even after all these years Aquagrill continues to deliver some the the best fish and seafood and great value that this city has to offer. I never never been disappointed in the quality and presentation of the dishes and would only wish they would opent another one closer to my apartment. The oysters are a winner as are the lobster salad, a special of yellowtail wrapped around crabmeat and the octopus. You can always get a great piece of grilled fish as a main but try something more adventurous as they deliver the goods 95% of the time. My only disappointment was the souffles which lacked any real flavor despite its authentic appearance. Keep up the great work guys.

falafel crusted salmon with lemon coriander sauce was one of the best meals in my 58 years. I got out with my gf for 140 dollars and I would say it is one of the best values in NY!
