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.

They put together an excellent buffet at a short notice, and the food was very good. They were very accomodating to what we were looing for.

The food was OK. After we left (party of two) we realized that a tip had automatically been added on without us being told. So we mistakenly double tipped.More

Casual Dress (Jacket/NoTie) is more than enough. Many events there are even more casual. Enjoy this great place!
