    1. Completely agree on Aquagrill, it is in a class by itself.

      1. I have never been to Aquagrill, but have been to your two choices and I would choose Atlantic Grill.

        1. Aquagrill is better, but costs 50% more. I do not think it is that much better then the Bluewater Grille tgo justify the cost. The space and service are not as good either. The Atlantic Grille is terrible in my opinion, but I have not been there in 3 years.

            I haven't been to Atlantic Grill, but I have been to Blue Water Grill. From the menu online now, it looks like BWG is much more expensive:

              wow you ain't kiddin! BWG's been one of my consistent, manhattan faves for locals and/or guests from outta town, but what's with the price hikes? i last went around the holidays last year. it looks like they've jacked em up by 1/3 at least - what gives? bummer...

                I remember 2 could eat appetizers,each order a main course from the grill selection, split a dessert and each have a glass of wine and get out of the BWG for under 75 bucks with tip. It would be 120 easily now. At that price there are too many other places I would rather eat. It's a shame as I used to go there quite a bit and really enjoyed it.

          2. BWG and AG both belong to the BR Guest Restaurants chain. I don't know if this is still the case, but when I visited AG a couple of years ago, its menu was pretty identical to BWG's, so I don't think it would make much of a difference which one you go to between these two. In terms of atmosphere, BWG has the definite edge, especially its jazz room downstairs. But I agree with others who suggest Aquagrill. I would go there anytime over these other two.
