Came into Aquarium Lounge on a double-date on a Friday night. Very happy we made reservations because there really aren't very many tables. However, the intimate environment meant that we received tremendous, personalized service. From the moment we walked in we were taken such good care of. They had a unique and delicious cocktail special and made me some wonderfully... More

Very small location with nice decor. Entrees are decent, but overpriced. Salads are minimal and extremely overpriced. Not sure why they call it a lounge since they don't have an alcohol license. The service and the bread are great, but we walked away wondering what we paid so much for.

Steak cooked to perfection, crab cakes wonderful, and tuna special excellent. Fantastic and attentive server. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely be back again and again.

Dinner with friends. Had a great time. Food was good, had surf & turf and the filet was done perfectly. Just a little pricey.

Food was very good but pricy. We sat in the back which is more casual. The restaurant is small so reservations are a must especially on weekends. Call before going.

This place is absolutely one of my favorite places to eat. The salads with their house dressing..the bread with garlic butter and cinnamon butter..the steaks and seafood come out sizzling u can't go wrong on this menu!

I took my wife and kids in for dinner. It was awkward, surrounded by what seemed like couples on a date. My daughter even noticed the sappy love music playing. Food is good but a little pricey.

For all that the atmosphere lacks, the seafood more than makes up for a worthwhile meal. Even the salads are outstanding. Put it on your bucket list.

Wonderful! I had Alfredo Fetecini and it was delicious and ended up bringing half of it home for later...very good service and food. Will go back there again. Parking is limited so have to park on the street...but that's worth it all.

Being an avid aquarist I was curiously enticed by the name. Decided to check it out in hopes of having a bite to eat whilst gawking or ridiculing the quality of the "Aquariums" yet there wasn't a tank in sight. Hoping to reach someone who's expectations might be crushed as mine were. Maybe the foods ok? Thank you. Good day.
