Had the salmon. It was not impressive, over cooked and dry. First time I was disappointed--I was with two others--their food was fine.

This is such a great neighborhood restaurant. The quality is so consistent and the owner/managers are so friendly and helpful. The staff are all pleasant. This is just a great place to go for classic American food - seafood, ribs, steaks, pasta. It's all here.

We go to Aqua Terra quite often and it is always great. Our server on our most recent visit was a little tentative, perhaps because of COVID, and didn't tell us about specials. Otherwise, he was polite and attentive enough.

My wife and I really love this place. The food and service is really top notch. The grilled octopus and filet mignon spring rolls were delicious appetizers. And the salads that we had for our main course were incredibly tasty with all fresh ingredients.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is considering dining there.

Although our waitress was perfect, other waitstaff were walking around with face masks not covering noses; completely unacceptable. Steak ordered med-rare arrived med-well. Food was average at most.

We had a great experience there. The service was great and the food was very good for what we paid. Prices are reasonable and drinks were good. I got the lemon drop martini which was strong and tasteful. The steak was excellent and tasty. I will definitely come back.

The restaurant was very nice, and the food was great, but it took one solid hour to receive our lunch, when there were only two other people in the restaurant. Other than the wait, everything else was great

Food was very good and nicely prepared. Varied menu, good for groups with different tastes. Wait staff was very friendly and courteous, but the food took a little longer than I would expect when there was only one other table with people in the whole restaurant. Walking through the bar to get to the dining room is a little tight; I don't remember doing that the last time I ate here (before Thanksgiving).

Dessert selection was eh. Entrees were excellent and plenty of food!

We were six ladies and four of us ordered the lamb chops which were very tasty. However I ordered mine rare and they came out raw. I did send them back and they were returned done rare. The waiter was attentive, we were the only ones in the diningroom for the first 1 1/2 hours!

Service was slow. I was brought an Entree I did not order. And my server wanted to argue with me that it was correct. He then said he'll show me the menu to prove he's right but when we opened it up it showed I was correct. And he had entered the wrong item. By the time the manager came over my date was already finished. So I wasn't going to make them wait for me to be fed. Never went back for dinner but i do like their brunch

Usually excellent service. Waiter was good but food took longer than usual to arrive. New bus boy not proactive. Waiter reminded him several times to fill water glasses. All this with only 6 or 7 tables occupied.

It was a fixed menu for Christmas Eve. The service was extremely poor and the quality of food was not very high. I would suggest for the money going somewhere else. I was extremely disappointed with my meal

I like this place. I had dinner on 12/13 and I liked it. I've been here before, and I will go back. The ambiance is excellent, nice, quiet, tables not on top of each other, etc. You are able to have a nice conversation, a very good time, and enjoy yourself. Service is excellent. I also very much like this is a separate, stand-alone building...which has parking!!! This is a big plus vis a vis "downtown" Pearl River, or even Nyack, Piermont, etc.

The food is good. Nice variety, both on the fish and meat side. I've had both here and all of the time, the food is good. I eat out a lot and I am a foodie, so I like what I like, and I am focused on food. Last night I had the tuna, which can be a make or break dish, in that it all comes down to the quality of the fish. The dish was prepared, executed and presented well, but, the tuna was just a bit "tough" (stringy, veiny, etc.). It was OK, good, but just had a bit of that toughness. I ate it and finished it for the most part, but I am critical of tuna. I want it to be the heart of the filet, soft, tender, through and through, no veins, toughness, etc. However, it was still good, and I will still go back and would order the tuna again. You just had to have a high-quality, excellent cut of tuna.

Overall, nice place, good food, excellent ambiance. I like it and will go back!
