The food was quite upscale and pleasing to the tastebuds and our server James was very professional and attentive. The restaurant was full so a little lively in terms of noise.

We went for lunch and had a short window. So we checked out sat. lunch menu prior to our arriving as well one of us had diet restrictions, to save time. The lunch menu is no longer and only a small brunch menu that was mostly eggs. So at 2 we were over eating eggs. It was good but not what we were hoping for. So maybe change your web site.

A lovely setting overlooking the gently rocking boats moored in Confederation Basin on the St. Lawrence River. Delicious and beautifully prepared courses to tempt your palate...wonderfullly flavored and presented in style. Terrific service from Sue and Cam made the evening extra special. A well thought out and plentiful wine list with a reasonable price range as well as specialty cocktails can tempt you even more! We will be back for sure!

A truly beautiful room with a great view of the marina and river/lake. Service was quite good and technically correct but short of excellent. Our meals were interesting but again somewhat short of top ratings. Overall satisfactory and glad that we tried this restaurant. In a city with hundreds of places to h save a fine meal this one will need to put some polish on what is a good start towards being the best place for fine dining in Kingston just no there yet.

It was a dinner for my wife after a Cirque du Soleil show, a gift I gave her for Christmas. The food was excellent, as always, and the service outstanding!
We’ll definitely be back.

We celebrated Canada Day at AquaTerra by having dinner for two adults and two children. There is a children’s menu that suits the healthy side of the menu. There is good choise of food for adults as well with an amazing wine selection. The service was top notch and food very tasty. Everything was perfect for breakfast as well, they had home made potato’s and Starbucks coffee.

Food, as usual, was very good. Staff was attentive and pleasant. While the restaurant wasn't crowded, one large table commanded all the time of the kitchen staff, and the service was very slow - even for AquaTerra

We attended this restaurant to celebrate a graduation. Service was excellent, and the free focaccia with the special butter was delicious. The portions were quite large, and all very good. We tried the burger, veggie ciabatta sandwich and potato gnocchi. The views are incredible, especially on a sunny day.
