Success! Thanks for posting your review of Aquavina. You’ve done the world some good today.

God Awful!

I tried Aquavina this past weekend. Not a good idea. I had been there in the past and did not have the best experience but thought to try it again. The place looks nice from the inside but you can't judge a book by its cover, can you? The food took forever and service was just OK. The server was very inexperienced. I expect a whole lot more with a fine dining restaurant. On top of everything, they were out of th... view more

Poor Service

My wife and I went there to have dinner before a show at the Knight Theater which is across the street. We were greeted very nice and were seated, after which the waiter came up and took our drink orders. 15 minutes later we still did not have our drinks. We saw our waiter serving others, but apparently since we only wanted water we weren't worth his time. We went back to the hostess and requested to speak to the... view more

Couldn't have had a better night!!!!

Wow....what an experience. I was hesitant to try this place due to the poor reviews;however the concierge at the Westin recommended it. I am sure glad i didn't let a couple of bad experiences shy me away.We started with the jumbo lump crab cake and kobe caps.I had the new yorker and my wife had the pan seared mahi mahi.I honestly have to say everything was great; from presentation to palate. Food was timely and our s... view more

Fun and Modern Restaurant!!

Tonight my boyfriend and I ate at Aquavina for the first time. We had a few drinks in the ""Wine Room"" which had an amazing wine list and a great bartender! After that, we had dinner on the outside terrace which was beautiful; again with great service. We were unaware that it was restaurant week but were extremely pleased with the deals they had to offer. The seafood was so fresh and my boyfriend (a meat and potatoe... view more

Great for a date!

We recently went on a date here, and both liked this restaurant. The menu was a little hard to understand (first timers), but the waiter explained their ""3-4 way"" entrees. I had the sablefish (with the sides from the sole), and it was awesome! The sides were so good, and a little funky. I am a plain picky eater, and I loved it. The shrimp was a little on the spicy side, and the potatoes were different and grea... view more

trying too hard

I had a meal at Aquavina while visiting Charlotte. Despite its reputation, the food was completely ordinary. The ""this and that"" three ways or four ways is just trying too hard for a restaurant that hasn't quite mastered the ""one way"" meal. I started with the Aquavina salad. Interesting presentation, but the salad itself was so ordinary and bland. The roquefort toasts on which it was served were not tasty e... view more

almost like going for tapas

Food was tasty...just be prepared to leave hungry for the price you pay. Kind of like that credit card commercial. \r Service was the worst thing though. Server did not know her wines for a high end restaurant. She also didn't really know the entrees either.

Saturday night delightful!

Dinner for six on Saturday. Everyone ordered something different, and each entre was excellent both in presentation and in quality. Jason wins the ""top chef"" award! Great service, too.

Everything is great about this place: food, staff, wine list, price, location. This is one of the few restaurants in Charlotte where we've gone back multiple times. It is lovely to sit outside during nice weather. The choices on the menu are for everyone and everyone seems happy to work there.

Innovative fresh seafood choices with it's own winebar for after dinner drinks and conversation.

From the moment we got there we were taken care of. I was highly impressed with the wine list -we had the Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet- and the prompt and attentive service. We started on the patio with a drink from there extensive martini list and a wonderful crab fondue appetizer. Our server Brett was extremely helpful with our navigation of the menu. I had the Tuna and my date had the Sole. Both dishes wer... view more
