    We had 2024 Mother's Day dinner with five family members @ Acqua Restaurant. The ambience was great. A bright dining room with patio, well ventilated, spacious table space. Vancouver Canucks and Edmonton Oilers playoff was on TV, but each dining table was far apart enough that you didn't hear loud noise. High quality food and good portion food with fair value: We had beefsirloin, lamb shank, chicken supreme and 2 West Coast Salmon, all savory and with nutritious vegetables. Prices for cocktails, alcoholic drinks, and desserts are reasonable: Acqua Sapphire, Old Fashion, Stoneroad Rose, P49 Lager. Molten cake, mango berry cheesecake, Spanish Coffee, ice cream with berries are all delicious. The waiter was very polite with a smiley face and patient to wait for our order. Food was served hot temperature. The waiter gave us a complimentary pot of purple African daisy flowers for Mother's Day gift. The Acqua Restaurant is in the Executive Hotel and Conference. The restaurant provides free parking. The restaurant is good for business meetings and meal gatherings. I have attended a few payroll seminars in the Executive Hotel.

    Overall it was fair. We were there for buffet. It was a bit chaotic at the greeting/ reception. They checked us in and then the greeter just busy with other guests and asked why we were not following her. The seat arrangement is abit bizarre because it ‘s a quite far walk from the table to the food stations. Walking pass the bar, to the hallway and make turns then reach the food stations while then carry the drink and food back to your seat; like a marathon.

    It was a chaotic and disorganized seating process and we were given a table a long long way, down a utility coordinator, from the buffet line. Overall selection and quality was decent, but it was a pretty lackluster experience. The wait staff was the bright spot for sure.

    Nice place to celebrate mother's day. A lot of dishes to chose from. My parents like buffet style and everything was decorated nice for mothers day. My mom especially liked that they gave all the mothers flowers...nice touch!! We always come for Easter and mothers day brunch at this location❤

    The food was fabulous, well prepared, cooked well and taste very good. I had the lamb shank with risotto. The drinks were good. Our server was Victoria, she’s very pleasant, would always check if we needed anything. She even explained to us what’s on the plate.

    Went for Easter Lunch Buffet and had a great time. The Easter Bunny came to see the children that attended. This reminded me of when my children were young. Our waitress was fantastic ( dark hair ) very attentive and knowledgeable with the wine selection.

    Terrible service, brought order to table, the one right order actually was wrong from what the menu said, reason given the chef likes to change it to differ from menu, terrible response. We were given lemon wedges as an apology, I don’t go seeking free meals this however should have at least been 50% off. On top of the aforementioned atrocious service, the food was terrible! Do not go here!!!!

    Honestly the worst restaurant experience I've had. We went for valentines day and didnt realize there was a fixed menu... awful!!! Not only was it incredibly overpriced for what it was but the food was subpar at best. On top of that they served us the most disgusting hors d'oeuvre I've ever had. The ambience of the restaurant looked like a kids birthday party with foil balloons and confetti everywhere. I think they were going for romance but missed the mark by a long shot. The only redeeming qualities were our waitress who was amazing and the live music.

    Not a good experience at all. I was very disappointed at their service and I'm Forced To Pay 16% Tips on an unacceptable service. The food was so so. The salad was Extremely salty, I can barely swallow it. The music was super loud, it hurts my ears. Overall I did not enjoy my Valentine's day dinner at all.

    Came here for the dine-out menu. The service and ambience were great. The food quality was just so-so. My portion of tooth fish was really small compared to others at the table, but after I complained about it, the waitress brought me two more pieces. Another person at the table was unhappy about his tooth fish being cold and unflavorful, but he didn't want to complain about it. The last two times I've been here the food quality was excellent, don't know what happened this time. Hope it will be a better experience next time.

    Our server was spectacular!! She was very informative, attentive, and make sure everything we ate or drink was to our satisfaction. Hubby and I choose the dine out menu. The appy, steak, fish was delicious and cook to perfection. The only thing I found it so-so was the dessert. It was good, but cz I'm not a sweet tooth kind of person, to me, it was a bit tad sweet. But overall, food was tasty and the service was fantastic. I would definitely go again even without the dineout.

    Dinner was very good. Beautiful presentation. Service was good but a bit rushed. Would have been nice to have time between courses. And have previous plates taken away before next course. Ambience could be better by lowering the lights. Far too bright to have an evening dining experience. Piano although nice was a bit loud

    Food is very tasty, we had the Christmas buffet. Only complaint is the food was a little cold as the lids were kept off. The decorations were minimal for Christmas, could have been better. The bar tender was a bit frazzled at first and you could clearly hear him complaining. I would go back as the food is good.

    We were a group of 8 people and everyone enjoyed their food. However, the 4 people who ordered sea bass commented it would have been better if it were deboned. Besides that, everything was great — delicious food, good value, good ambiance, excellent service.
