Aqua is a small place in downtown - near the water front. The waiters are very attentive and the food is excellent. It is a bit noisy due to the tight quarters. They have a full bar and wine specials . I tried two small plates. Rare tuna and the beef filet. Both were excellent. The large plate - lamb chops looked like a great choice also. Other small plates include crab cakes or shrimp and grits.

We happened to stumble into this restaurant last night. What a delight. The service was great and the food was wonderful. I had the petite filet and my husband had the pasta with shrimp and ham. These were small plate dinners but they were filling. If you want a large variety and large portions this probably is not the place for you. We were very happy that we discovered Aqua.

This was our first experience at Aqua (and it won't be our last). Valentine's Day is always important and Aqua made us feel special. Everything - filet mignon and the encrusted mahi-mahi were wonderfully done - perfect. Fish was not overdone and the filet was perfectly medium-rare. But the chowder ! Oh my God, the chowder. Just unbelievable. A fine wine list - plenty to choose from - no need to bring anything from your own cellar. Kelly served us and was just super - attentive and not annoying! Lastly, the crème brûlée. One of the best we've had but one issue...............it was TOO BIG. We couldn't even eat it all. C'est dommage.
