Finally after so many years of living near this rest I finally tried it. This place is basically a glorified diner. Nothing we ate (party of 8) was rememberable and unfortunately the swordfish was uneatable. Prices were fair but the food was just not that good. Don’t think I’d go back

This is consistently good. Good food, good service, good choice of items on menu. Never disappoints. Our neighborhood go to restaurant and everyone couple we've had join us continue to go their on their own.

We went to AquaTerra Grille for our 40th wedding anniversary. Definitely made a great choice out of the three I was considering. The onion soup that I had was some of the best I have eaten and the potato wrapped cod had a flavor that was quite delicious.

Because it was fathers day of course it was more crowed then normal. We had about a five minute wait when we got there (party of 4) Our server was very nice, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. The food was very good, hot and plentyful. We had a nice relaxing brunch, we never felt like we were being rushed.
Always a good experience at Aquaterra

Went there for Mother’s Day. Food and service were great! This was our first time dining there—we will absolutely go back. The only issue was the tables are small. We were a party of 6 and felt like we were a little crammed. Sure it would be fine any other day—I get Mother’s Day is a busy day.

The restaurant is nice. I've been there before. Today wasn't the best. Took my mother there for dinner. Her food came out almost 10 minutes before my food came out. I watched her eat and then she watched me eat. I mentioned it to the waiter who did tell us he was new. I suggested next time he tell the kitchen the food should come out at the same time because my mother did order before I was ready to order. He informed me he did tell the kitchen the food should come out at the same time. So that's on the kitchen staff. The food was just OK. My lobster tacos were tasty, but the lobster was a bit over cooked and rubbery, the staff is friendly and atmosphere is nice there.

Over salted food and mediocre service. Wasn’t a pleasant dining experience at all. I had the scallops with risotto. The scallops were fine, however the risotto was inedible. Completely drowning in salt. I expected a lot more unfortunately.

I think the 10 and under for kids, is a little extreme, my 11 yr old doesn’t eat enough to justify the adult price. Overall service and food was great.

Greek influenced Mediterranean food. Fish was super fresh and the best part of the meal. They would really complete the excellent dining experience if they could get their service up a couple of notches. Service was friendly but slow. The staff just needs training in fine ding. Also the free salad shoe 86ed in favor of gourmet salads they could charge for. The free salad is a reminder of what you would get in a diner. Good for free but didn’t add anything to the meal.

Made a reservation in advance, had to wait over 10 minutes for a table to be seated in a diner-like compartment.
Food was mediocre, wouldn’t be coming back.

I was in the mood for fish and they had many selections. I went with the citrus swordfish. It was very tasty and moist. The capers made the perfect balance for flavor. We started with the Brussels sprouts. They were done perfectly. My husband had the salmon salad. He enjoyed his meal as well. The service was nicely paced.

What a nice find! Met an old friend there for dinner during Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, and the menu did not disappoint! It was lovely, ambiance improved after a large family with children left, and the waitress was very attentive. My salmon was perfectly cooked, and the blueberry crumble was yummy (could have been a little larger portion!).

Lovely place. Food was amazing, I had the branzino from the menu and my husband had a red snapper from the day especial. Both dishes were tasteful, beautiful presentation. We also had the crab cake as an appetizer, super yummy. Service was excellent, everyone very attentive without overdoing it. I will definitely go back, they’re participating in the restaurant week in March! Good excuse to visit again.

Food tasted outstanding. Kitchen knows how to cook calamari correctly - thank you for that. would like to see Calamari with a non-breaded coating using a Fra Diavlo (sp?) sauce or a "Buffalo" sauce with Blue Cheese. Salad was right on. My wife liked the Bay Scallops with the sauce -me not as much as a prefer a more lemony tilt.

We will return

Sunday Brunch was very nice. Few things that would have made it better. They seat all the people coming in at same time all next to each other. Would have been nice to separate us a little. Had to track down waitress for each thing. Never came and filled water or at desert time, brought us some hot coffee. Had to get her attention for check. She was just standing in hallway all times. With a buffet it is much easier but felt like a
drain to always get her attention. Never got hot coffee for dessert. Plus it was cool inside so really wanted something hot. But we had a nice time.
