    Walk into this seafood restaurant for oyster heaven. We especially loved slurping the Kumamoto Oysters with their sweet and succulent taste. Can’t wait to try even more of their variety next time!

    We had to wait quite a while ( 40 mins ) for food , but eventually it was worth it . Oysters are so great you'd ask for more . Deserts are heavenly . And everything is fair priced .

    This long-running downtown seafood spot was conceived as a counterweight to the ponderous Oyster Bar at Grand Central, a looser and hipper spot where the number of raw oysters offered was impressive. Read more

    Our server was amazing! Very accommodating for vegetarians. Bread is delicious. I got gazpacho soup, a fettuccini w pesto and tomatoes, and of course lots of wine!

    Had my graduation lunch here and tried my first oyster! It was okay, but what really stuck out was the tuna tartar, fried teriyaki, and wild salmon! And of course, dessert.

    A fantastic place to belly up to the bar to try as many oysters as you can (especially during happy hour when they go for $1 a piece). Read more

    If you're craving delicious oysters, sit at the bar, order a manhattan and grab a few west coast options. Sweet, delicious - Kumamoto is obvious, a special called Jenny's Point (i think?) surprised

    Aquagrill serves some of the best seafood dishes to be found in the city, from their oyster plates, to seafood towers, to the Crabmeat Eggs Benedict at brunch. Make reservations in advance!

    I could give you a list of what to order but would never want to take away the joy of experiencing a menu that tempts you in many ways. Explore everything under the sea – for its seafood heaven.

    Don't miss the Mackerel tartare with truffle oil special. Heaven in your mouth! If it's not on the menu anymore just ask for it!

    The best sea food in NYC. Oysters are a must, get Belons if they have them. The truffle crusted Cod may be the best seas food dish I have ever had.

    Never had a bad meal here! Great service at the bar! Stacy is the best bartender there is! The only downside side is the hostess Nora is very rude.

    This is the most diverse oyster menu I've even seen and easily the best in nyc. Great date night sitting in a more quiet back section of the restaurant

    Truffled polenta was outrageously delicious & addictive. Soft shell crab salad was yummers as were the fresh oysters (East Coast!). Skip the Bloody Mary though as that was just disappointing.

    Aquagrill was a great surprise, food is great! Try the crispy cod cakes, and the grilled Atlantic salmon with falafel crust.

    The Chilean sea bass and oysters were fantastic, but our waiter was extremely pushy with the specials to the point of being rude...it marred an otherwise lovely dining experience

    Aquagrill has lovely seating outdoors if that’s your cup of tea, and the service is attentive and unobtrusive. We were awed by the falafel-crusted salmon, and the raw bar was a nice surprise.

    The Seared Peppered Tuna Carpaccio was light and delicious. The assorted bread basket was also a very good. Will come back soon WITH friends in tow.

    Excellent seafood! The apple crisp tart for dessert was really good, small for the price but it is a place of quality over size.

    In a neighborhood of average-nice restaurants all trying desperately to be a cut above, this one actually is *that* good. Oysters and nightly specials are highly recommended.

    Freshest Oysters! Get the Blue Point, La St. Simon, Raspberry Point & Canoe Lagoon. The truffle crusted cod is also a must try. It's one of my favorite NYC restaurants

    This place can be busy on Friday & Saturday nights. Try their Jalapeño Quencher cocktail while you wait to be seated. Perfectly sweet & spicy.

    For the freshest oysters, stick to east coast. The roasted grapefruit dessert is on another level.
