Great. Good food.
Fix your prices. Happy hour add fries to your burger is $5 but on the menu it’s $4. I brought this up to the server and she adjusted the price.

Looking forward to an evening out with friends for dinner. For myself I did not have a very good selection as am vegetarian, no meat or fish. The rest of my party had the dine out menu which they said was very good. The restaurant was not able to offer a selection when I advised that could not eat anything with meat/fish base. For this reason giving a 2 star.

They didn't seem to be aware of our reservations. Server was nice and efficient--she took good care of our person who had food allergies. But service didn't match the level we anticipated considering the menu.
Food was ok. Portions were good but nothing fabulous.
Ambiance was very casual, considering the menu for Dine out. Expected ambiance to have been a little more dining room-like vs lounge.

We came during Dine Out. The tuna salad was spectacular. However, our steaks were way overcooked. They were dry and chewy. The veal was also lacking in the flavour. It wasn't as good a value as some other Dine Out restaurants we went to this year. Ambiance was okay, but music was a little loud.

Overall the environment and food was good. Just we have a rookie server, which she doesn’t know the food and wine they have and we have to point it out in the menu. She also doesn’t know the how to pour wine and dripping it everywhere outside of the glass and table. The weirdest was when we pay the bill, she enter the tips amount for me instead of passing it for myself to enter.

I was initially put off by the set up of the restaurant. The restaurant is open to the lobby of the hotel, and the lighting is quite bright for a dinner setting... it looked more like a cafeteria. I was ready to walk out when my friend insisted we try it out. Surprisingly, the food was lovely! I had the seared tuna for starter and yummy! followed by the veal osobuco, fall off the bone meat, with lovely vegetable medley and mash potatoes ~ Delicious! the desert was a bit Meh.... I had the chocolate cake.

overal, don't judge a book by its cover! it was worth the dine out experience.

Came for the Mother’s Day brunch. Waiters didn’t know what the we’re doing (absolutely no clue what was going on and could not answer our questions). Very disorganized. Food was not the best quality for the $50/person price tag. Could have had a steak dinner and wine for that price, instead of over cooked eggs Benedict in a heat tray and jugs of juice from concentrate.

Suggesting for a designated area with proper signage for table reservations so as not to leave guests clueless as to where they are going upon arrival. Easy access upon payment and not going to the other side of the restaurant just to do so.

I was very disappointed as Acqua had no knowledge of my reservation, although I had made it almost a week prior and had confirmation. They did manage to fit us in in a timely fashion, but I don't blame them, I blame Open Table, so I would not feel comfortable with using Open Table again

What a lovely restaurant! We were impressed with the variety of choices on their menu and enjoyed a lovely meal. I ordered the salmon, which was perfectly done with just the right amount of veggies and mashed potato. We also ordered a pasta dish with was also quite tasty.
