    Unfortunately, booking a reso on the patio was still an option but I had received a call saying they had decided to close their patio a week prior. I was disappointed that we didn’t get to attend

    Everything was great except that our fire went out halfway through, another server noticed and said they would turn it back on and they never did. We would have said something but we just kept waiting and waiting and by then we figured there was no point since we would be leaving soon. It was chilly out and getting dark so it would have been really nice to have the fire going during our visit.

    Steak dish was delicious, view and ambience of in-table gas fireplace were very charming and relaxing. I recommend some improved experience around walking past the restaurant and down an inelegant set of hotel stairs to access the patio, especially for the prices charged for the meager amount of food offered. The patio will be a lovely spot for drinks from the fall cocktail menu, but the overall experience and food quality/quantity didn't justify the dish prices from the very limited food menu.

    Great location and being able to park was a great advantage. The service was good and my shrimp dish was good but not enough on the plate to call it a lunch. Maybe a larger portion of salad would make it a better portion.

    The food here is terrible. Somehow, they extracted all the flavor from the ingredients for the salad (which looked good, tasted like nothing). Deep fried fish was over cooked, mushy, and greasy. Burger was ok. Not even minimal attention was given to presentation—the food was just dumped on the plate in an unappetizing way. Sitting by the water at the marina was pleasant, but do not expect this to be a lovely patio experience. Feels like sitting at the wharf next to the loading dock. The service was good and very friendly, so the front of the house is trying hard to make up for the apparent apathy of the cooks.

    Arrived promptly at 6:30 and were seated by 6:31. Server took our drink order, and our food order of two appetizers and two entrees when she came back with the drinks. The appetizers arrived - oysters and corndogs - which were passable although the oysters were a bit on the smaller size, and I found the corndogs to be over done. When those dishes were cleared, we awaited the entrees. And waited. And waited. We were actually contemplating ordering pizza to have delivered to our table. We asked our server about forty minutes after she had cleared the appetizer plates. We were told there was a dinner rush - imagine that at a restaurant - and they were training a new person - probably not the best time for that. After we had been there an hour and forty minutes the entrees arrived. We were not impressed. The pork belly tacos were overcooked., and the tacos shells were dry and crumbly, to the point they fell apart when you picked them up. The lobster roll filling was decent, but the brioche was seared to black on one side. Our server provided a free dessert as compensation for the outrageous wait time. That was at least tasty. Nice atmosphere, barely acceptable food, pleasant servers, horrendous prices. You shouldn’t leave a restaurant and still be hungry You can bet your next paycheque you won’t see us there again.

    The tempura shrimp were very good, pork tacos were good. The lobster roll literally had a tablespoon of almost a lobster paste. For $30 plus dollars I think you could do better than that.

    The AquaTerra Patio is nicely situated beside the marina. The greeters and wait staff are very enthusiastic and pleasant. Sadly, the food is mediocre at best. The appetizer (shrimp tempura) was tasty, but a very small portion (5) for a "shareable" appetizer. We were very disappointed in the quality of our entrees. The "fish and chips" fish coating was a dark brown "shell", and the dish was not hot, making the coating even more unpleasant. The pork belly tacos were just OK. We had eaten at the 'sister restaurant" AquaTerra (the indoor restaurant) last year and the food and service were superlative; unfortunately, the food served on the AquaTerra Patio does not come close.

    Booked for patio brunch menu. Arrived early, seated early. Received drinks 20 minutes after the order was taken. Brunch menu was not an option although it was the one we reserved online. The patio advertised (upper level) was not the patio we were seated at. In order to have brunch we would have had to move indoors. The food choices were very limited on the patio. My advice, call to book a reservation, not online.

    We are on the patio and non of the guests were pleased with the meal. The server should have told us that a certain meal couldn’t be served as is due to an allergy rather than bring out a very poor version. The food took too long to come out. We hear the dining room is good but the patio portion was terrible

    We were very disappointed, both with the mediocre food and very slow service. The chicken was overcooked, the lobster roll was a very small portion, and the fries were too salty. Both after ordering and after the food was served, there was a very long wait during which the server did not appear. It's a great pity because this is such a beautiful spot. Perhaps the management relies too much on that.

    Though the pricey food was just okay for an outside patio, it was disappointing that they did not offer the same or similar menu as the Aqua Terra indoor restaurant. The real benefit was being able to eat out on a beautiful summer evening by the water.

    We had lunch at Aqua Terra Patio to celebrate my mom's birthday. It was really nice to sit by the lake and the setup was great (roomy table and large umbrellas). Starters were really good (Oysters and Ahi tuna nachos) but my main was a bit lackluster and dry (duck tacos). Service was a bit slow, it took at least 10-15 minutes to get out drinks alone even though the patio was far from full. Lastly, I thought they would bring a candle or something with dessert because they were aware that we were celebrating a birthday but there was nothing of the sort.
