This restaurant was known as Aqua but apparently changed its name. Apparently, nothing else has changed, which is great news. Yes its expensive, but it was a fantastic meal. The seafood and fish were absolutely delicious. It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Worth the splurge.
Favorite Dish: Go for the tasting menu. Hey, its Vegas- live a little. The miso glazed seabass was the best I've ever had. Dessert was a selection of four different items from the menu. Lots of chocolate. Fabulous!
This is a Las Vegas branch of a San Francisco restaurant. We ate here on our wedding anniversary, and I will tell you right now we spent a bundle ($200+). Was it worth it? Absolutely! Aqua is simply elegant and sophisticated, but comfortable as well. The menu is all seafood, and the wine list is extensive. As it should be at a restaurant of this caliber, the service was impeccable.
Favorite Dish: I had Dover sole and my husband had salmon. All of it was beautifully presented (the salmon, with three different sauces, was a work of art) and perfectly cooked. The real to-die-for moment, though, was dessert. We had seen the couple next to us enjoy this (and they had ordered it because the people next to them had enjoyed it) -- a sampler of chocolate desserts. From an incredible warm chocolate banana cake to a Jack Daniels laced, molten-center concoction, it was all delicious enough to make your eyes roll back in your head! If you are looking for a special-occasion meal in Las Vegas, this is it! (We were able to make an 8pm reservation at about 5pm the same day, but keep in mind we were there in early May.)
