Who knows about this place?
Should I go?
I want to go for dinner, even though I heard the brunch is good.
I'd appreciate any info on whether it's the good, the bad or the ugly!
I have to echo all the comments about this place. The
two times I've been they've had a wider and better
selection of oysters than at Grand Central Oyster Bar.
They were served perfectly too, right temperature with
all the juices glistening in the shells. The entrees
were particularly creative and well balanced. The
salmon in the felafel crust with a cucumber
vinaigrette is great. Ditto a crab risotto. The wine
selection was interesting and varied and the waiter
recommended a great wine that matched all our meals.
The desserts that my friends ordered were actually
good ( I had held back ordering because I assumed
there would have to be a letdown somewhere. There
wasn't) Altogether, my new favorite place in Soho.
I've had three no-bars-held dinners at Aquagrille, all
of them sublime and expensive. Go when you can open
your purse strings. I've never had bad service there
either; in fact quite the opposite. Their oysters are
perfectly fresh, appetizers delectable, entrees
fantastic, even desserts have been perfection. In fact,
it has been my favorite "special treat" restaurant in
Manhattan for a couple of years now. Keep me posted on
how you like it.
LOVE IT! I've been eating here around three times a
month for the past 6 months and just gets better and
better. The food is fabulous - ALWAYS fresh. The
service is terrific. Friendly waiters who know their
stuff and apatient with questions, menu variations,
etc. I'd have to say it's one of my favorite
restaurants in NYC. I'd recommend it highly to anyone!
