Every time we visit NYC Sunday brunch at Aquagrill is our tradition. Love it! A huge platter of Oysters, clams and various other seafoods washed down with a bottle of Blanc de Blancs Champange is one of life's true joys. Aquagrill has impeccably fresh high quality seafood, a great wine list and very friendly and professional service.

One of my all time favorite restaurants in NYC. Delicious oysters and martinis in two sizes (always go large). The falafel salmon is one of my favorite dishes ever.

Aquagrill was recommended to me by someone living in NYC. It was a great recommendation. Our server was terrific - friendly, knowledgable and just the right amount of attention to the table - not overkill. The food was terrific! Would definitely go again.

The scallops were beautifully cooked and the crab cakes were excellently done. The prices were not excessive for a quality seafood restaurant. The restaurant is small but not oppressively so.

The atmosphere feels warm and friendly. The food were exceptional but my friend finds it a bit on the salty side. We order one appertizer conch salad, and the waiter was nice enough to have it split into 2 separate plates. The day boat scallops was cooked just right. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Absolutely Fantastic dining experience. Seating can go indoors in a traditional style or patio dining with an enclosed heating space for the fall/winter. My wife indulged in the Divers Scallops with Crab Meat Risotto and she was extremely pleased by her selection. I ordered the evening’s special, Black Sea Bass with Brussel Sprouts and a Truffle Sauce. Phenomenal!! Meal from start to finish was fabulous. Service not stuffy but very good!

One of the truly great places in NYC in which to eat oysters. We had 6 each of four different varieties and they were all fresh and well chilled. An excellent wine list with different price points and very good service, everything you could want in a NYC institution.

I had dinner there last night and had a horrible experience. They first sat us outside, during end of October which gets cold at nights. After a few minutes we insisted on sitting inside. They sat us at a table near the outdoor patio with the door wide open. Cold winds kept blowing in which made the evening very uncomfortable. Towards the end I had to wear my jacket during dinner. Now the next day I’m coughing and sneezing from a cold. This is supposed to be a high dining experience, definitely didn’t feel like it.

One of the best restaurants in the city. There is a reason they have been around for so long. Make sure to eat as many oysters as you can handle, and order the Truffle Cod.

The food was decent but on a booked out night I saw myself and several customers get upset over lobster running out also the lobster was 10 times better on the 36$ lobster salad then the $130 seafood platter, this place is mainly for oyster lovers, however the waiter was attentive, and the manager Assisted in fixing our check that was brought out with incorrect amounts and even gave an additional discount.

This was our second visit to Aquagrill in the last year. We found it to be consistent in great food and service, as well as a wonderful place to enjoy a Sunday afternoon brunch on the outside, protected patio. Particularly love the little muffins that come out with the drinks, the oysters (a nice selection), availability of fine champagnes, excellent soups and attentive service. We will be back.

One of my favorite restaurants. The service at our most recent dinner was unusually slow, but the manager comped is a dessert and after-dinner drinks as an apology. We left feeling welcomed and valued. As always, the food was special. I wish we lived closer.
