I will say first that I don't go here very often because it costs more than I usually like to pay and the food is a bit fancy, I'm a meat and potato kind of girl but if that's okay with you by all means try it. The atmosphere is beautiful. You can sit outside by the water, in a... More

Nice atmosphere downstairs, however over looks the canal. Dark woodwork, nice feeling & bar. Not a large variety. Found last time I went for dinner the one steak on menu was $39.00. Thought that was a bit much. You have to circle over the bridge coming over to N. Utica. Coming from N. Utica a very sharp right hand turn... More

Have been three times in the last few months. First time was family function around the holidays, was disappointed with the food, several orders were incorrect. Was at a fund raiser shortly after and again disappointed but wasn't sure if that was the fault of the restaurant or the organization. Gave it one more try as a couple and the... More

I met one of my girlfriends here to reconnect. We not only enjoyed the food, setting and getting reacquainted but the waitress was fantastic. We explained that we would be staying for awhile, asked if that would be okay and she just kept filling our drinks and even came back to offer dessert. Of course, we couldn't miss sharing a... More

This was our first time at this restaurant and we've heard great things about it from friends. We entertain customers at some of the finest restaurants on the East Coast and in Florida. I wasn't in the mood for Italian but my wife was so I checked out the menu online and saw that they offered steaks as well. My... More

Enjoyed a great dinner at Aqua Vino. We had Chilean Sea Bass and Haddock Florentine. The service was fantastic. Michael the server was attentive, made great recommendations, and a terrific server. The restaurant is small, quaint situated on the canal - we definitely would return.

The service was excellent, very pleasant and professional. The buffet offerings were surprisingly uninteresting. But buffet food is buffet food... nothing unappetizing but expected a bit more sparkle. Superb location.
