    The food was not as described in menu. We had the seared salmon. Very small portions and salmon was not seared, more like steamed. The cauliflower puree was less than a teaspoon on the plate. Our beer drinks came in mismatched glasses. The calamari was greasy and tasteless. We ordered dessert however after waiting for over 10 mins the waiter came by and asked "you ordered dessert right"? We said yes, waiting another 5 mins and then just told him to cancel it. Will not go back.

    Honestly food food was cold and not a lot of variety for the price. There were way too many people packed in there. It was loud and felt like a cafeteria.

    my parents, sister and i were there for the father’s day brunch and didn’t expect much due to the relatively low price. my reservation was at 1030 and had 2 hours until 1230. during the brunch, our utensils were taken away by the (3) servers at least 4 times and not exchanged for new ones until we asked. the first incident happened at around 11 and we left around noon. i am not sure whether it’s the restaurant’s business practice or the servers were working “too hard”.

    Cups, plates etc were very dirty. Even the new ones were not cleaned properly. Basic black Coffee was very bad. The cheese omelet came without any cheese. They had to provide cheese on a side plate after they realized the cheese was missed during cooking. It was our first Mother’s Day breakfast and we were all disappointed by the food.

    I have been to aqua many times through the years, mainly for mothers day brunch. I was very disappointed in quantity of food as it was half of the selection in previous years. Not only was the quantity low, but all the food was cold.who wants to eat cold mashed potatoes ,pancakes, bacon etc... previous years they had selection of various sushi, dim sum, a seafood salad,made to order waffles, none of that was available small selection of desserts & no fruit platter pros- the staff was very attentive & service was excellent & made us feel very welcome for $50 per person I would have expected a bit more variety & hot food.overall I am very pleased with the service but not enough to bring me back.will for that $50 price point I will go to the river rock buffet with a lot more variety of food

    Not a good value. The Bite Of Burnaby menu is similar price as regular menu: $30 2-course, not 3 course in other restaurant. The portion is average. The soup taste weird. The duck is a bit too salty. The waiter is good but the host is not very nice.

    I live music was too loud. I was hopping to pick off their menu but didn’t realize that with Valentine’s Day it was a set menu with a set price of $100+ for 2 people so kinda over priced but the servers were nice and the rose given at the end of the dinner was sweet.

    It was Vancouver Dine Out so usually the menu and price is always a steal. However, service needs to be improved (it was slow and the place was not packed) . Salmon gravlax could have saltiness toned down. Sea bass was ok. Flank steak could be improved.

    We tried out Aqua through Dine Out Vancouver. Service and attentiveness was good however, were never offered the option to get wine pairings which other tables were. And it took forever to get the final bill. Appetizer was escargot - very different presentation with lots of escargot - mine were gritty but my husband had no complaints. His main had flank steak which was chewy. Ran out of my preferred desert and was offered cheesecake. It was good but it wasn't cheesecake.

    Went for the dine out menu which was expensive and small portions/aggressively mediocre food. The serving staff was amazing, and happy hour drinks are $3.50 so that almost made up for the food quality :P
