sorry asian restaurants, this might've turned me off the style of food for good – Flavorless fried rice, I'm new to the city, so maybe this is just a common failure of asian food around here
Rude, overpriced, no class!!!! – Me and my friend were there last week, friday night. From nice interior design and what seemed to be a relaxing setting I had higher expectation for this place. Instead: waiters were very rude and uncultured. It feels like they picked them from cheap chinese restaurant with assembly line mentality. They rushed us through, they didn't check on us if everything was alright and overall had nasty attitude. Sushi wasn't good either, I had much better for much less. Overall, very unpleasant experience. Unfortunatelly!
friday night experience – i brought some friends to this unique restaurant on a busy friday evening. at first, i thought i incorrectly booked a reservation at the wrong place. the guy at the front door acted more like a bouncer. he asked for an ID, and wasn't very welcoming. i had a reservation, but had to wait quite a long time. the bar was really nice. the other diners seemed friendly. the vibe in the restaurant is great. the host is also very charming. perhaps there were too many people being ushered in...i felt rushed at times. the food was very good. i enjoyed the sushi and the curries. unfortunately, the waiters were not so knowledgeable about the menu and how to cater to the specific needs of my friends. the ambience was amazing, but i doubt i'll return. there are too many restaurants worth trying out.
Bad customer service – My husband agreed to babysit our 2 months old baby so my sister and I could go out for the first time. We went there for a dinner and I was excited, however, right of the back the experience went sour. The guy at the door, didn't open door for us, but requested ID in rather firm and unpleasant voice. After we got sitted we were approached by a waiter within seconds, we told her we werent ready. Within a minute another waiter approached us asking us to order, as he was reached for my glass he accidently slam shut my menu and didn't even appologized. Drinks were good, food ok. My sister's fish was very small, sushi that I ordered could be better, rice was falling appart. Before we were done with our meal and drinks, the waiter brought us our bill. We felt rushed and I didn't even enjoyed my special night out. Would not recomment this place.
This time around, not so great – Again, my friend and I were there not too long ago, at the bar, with a different bartender. Although she wasn't rude, she didn't seem too interested in us. She did do the least expected from a bartender. She wasn't too helpful with the menu selections. The hostess was more helpful with us. Once again, though the food and its presentation was superb. We sat for a while before she recognized that our glasses were empty. All in all, it's still a good place to go for Asian cuisine
bad customer service – Went to Aquamarine the other night for dinner. Food was just ok. We had an issue that the manager had to come and talk to us about. He was rude and didn't help the situation at all. We left with a bad taste in our mouths. The so-so food isn't worth being treated poorly. I don't recommend this restaurant.
something different for the neighborhood – took some out of town friends here for lunch and we loved it! its a great spot in the neighborhood, and the ambiance that tries to be fun and hip succeeds. the service was good, and the food was good as well - not the best pad thai i have ever had in my life, but certainly nothing to complain about. the portions were just right. the lunches are maybe a little pricier than other lunch special around but not by much at all.
One of my favorite local restaurants... – I eat here at least once a week and it's consistently good for both take-out, and about the nicest restaurants in the Murray Hill area for eating in - Their Pad Thai is about the best I've ever had.
My girlfriend is bored that I always wanna go to Aquamarine, but agrees it's always good (even if I'm not).
The menu leaves very little to be desired, and I try to vary what I eat, but I have my faves, so I cannot review the Sushi.
The take-out is very fast (typically 10 minutes from when I order). The decor is beautiful and the service is very good by NY standards. I assume they had a problem with underage drinkers, so they had a ridiculous policy of carding at the door, even for dinner, but they have lightened up and right now only card drinkers.
Try the Crab dumplings, or the Curry Beef, which is exceptionally oily, but also exceptionally tasty.
The liberal use of yard long beans is also something that keeps me coming back.
Good Murray Hill spot – My finace and i live in the Hill and find it hard to get good quality sushi with in walking distance. This place rocks! Firstly the decor is great and they really payed attention to every last detail..check out the bathrooms. This place is so clean and hip...the only downside is some nights they blast the music and it is a little loud...but normally chill. Even stop by after work for a drink or a game on the TV behind the bar. Not only do they have fresh sushi and fun house special rolls...the cooked food is great too! Delivery is so quick!!!
The great place this neighborhood has been waiting for!!! Yummy!
Fantastic Sushi that's almost fluffy – Honestly, this is some of the best sushi I have ever had, and I consider myself quite an experienced sushi consumer. Even the most basic roll, the eel and avocado roll, is so good it's almost fluffy. The specialty rolls are divine as well and very innovative. There is a lobster and seaweed salad with strawberry that's so good as well as a shoft shell crab with jalapeno. The prices are good too, very reasonable, almost inexpensive. The decor is very funky and fresh, with the stones lining the sides of the room and the water running down the wall, you almost forget you are in an overpopulated city. It's a must try!
