Aqua reef has a very wide-ranging menu, with many options for those who don't want sushi or other Asian-focused dishes. Even chipotle chicken salad or stuffed green chiles! We have enjoyed the soft-shell crab, deep-fried shrimp, tempura, and many others, along with sushi. The atmosphere...More

Good ambiance with great food. The shrimp tempura was amazing! The dim sum tower was delicious. The experience of the hot rock shrimps being cooked on your table was unique and the chocolate mousse was very fancy. The petite fours were very nice as well.
