There is absolutely a reason that some restaurants are around forever. Aquagrill has been open since 1999. I can’t count the amount of time that I have been there not only for dinner but for lunch too. I have always had a great meal.

My husband and I have taken to sitting at the bar and eating appetizers and oysters. There are about 15 different oysters to choose from nightly. Last night we had a dozen. We also had a hamachi sushi last night served with edaname and a spicy sauce that was incredible. We also had sea urchin which is one of my favorites and softshell crab served over a bed of lettuce. The small breads they serve at the beginning are also hard to resist. There is a jalapeno corn bread and the onion foccacia. Sweet, warm and tasty. They also serve a nice little plate of desserts at the end of your meal.

There is seating outside during the warm weather and the place was hopping last night outside. We chose the bar but as a rule, I’d sit anywhere or eat anywhere there. I would hope that the Aquagrill will be here for many years to come.
