Terrible Experience – I am really surprised by all of the rave reviews. They are all from over a year ago so I'm guessing this restaurant has really gone downhill.
You know it's a bad restaurant experience when all of your guests are saying let's not order any more and just get out of here. Service was terrible - our waiter was a nice guy but it just seemed that the restaurant was poorly run and he couldn't do a good job. The food was perfectly mediocre, with super small portions, and was terribly overpriced. Case in point: $22 entree for 3 very bland sea scallops and sauteed spinach. That's it. Nothing else on the plate. We actually returned one of the dishes (fisherman's stew) because it was that disappointing and no one was eating it.
I really wouldn't go here. There are much better places for your money. I hate leaving bad reviews but when you're still thinking about the $200+ bill for a terrible night out that left some of your guests hungry, well, there you go.
Maybe they were good at some point, but not any more. They need to refocus on their food and management.
Amazing Meditteranean Cuisine – SUPER DELICIOUS!!! Wow that is all I have to say. I have always loved Mediterranean food and Aqualis really impressed me.
From their bread with olive oil and olives to the dessert, everything is just amazing. I tried the grilled octopus and it was grilled just right paired with great refreshing sauce.
For entree, I decided to go with the sea scallops and my boyfriend got their lamb chops and man was I in heaven. Scallops were seasoned perfectly and they were so fresh. The lamb chops dish is huge and the lamb was tender and juicy.
We were totally satisfied after entree and guess what? They gave us complimentary dessert! Sweet baklava with their Greek Yogurt with honey! I was shocked!
I wish I live closer to Brooklyn...
I’d give it 10 stars if I could – I’m glad I went out of my way to check out this location. is a cozy restaurant and eclectic seafood in a sleek, stylish and modern setting …..The best seafood ever!
It’s fresh and they know how to season their fishes! The grilled octopus is delicious.
The staff was friendly. Very tasty dessert was surprisingly included with our meal.
I highly recommend this place
Citysearch Editorial Review – This homey, seafood-centric Greek eatery in Fort Greene features fresh-from-the-market fish in a charming wood- and brick-walled space decorated with dangling light fixtures and antique mirrors. The well-edited menu highlights the subtle flavors of the sea, like char-grilled squid with a saffron vinaigrette, fried whiting with roasted beets and whole grilled Mediterranean sea bass. Gratis offerings, like a complimentary bowl of olives at the start of your meal and a delectable baklava wedge served with Greek yogurt at the end, sweeten the experience.
Amazing food and service. Don't Miss! – If you have not been here yet, you are really missing out. We have visited three times, twice for diner and once for brunch, so we've tried a variety of things on the menu, and the hit the ball out of park with everything we ate and we are very critical foodies. They serve beer and wine. One evening ordered a sparkling white which they kept on ice for us and never missed a chance to keep our glasses full. D'lish!!
Fresh Seafood in Brooklyn – I love Aqualis Grill. This place just opened and I decided to try it out. I am so happy I did because my girlfriend and I enjoyed an incredible meal and we will definitely be going back. I had the Sword Fish Kebob and my girl had the Pan Roasted Scallops. Both were amazing!
LOVE IT – As a lover of seafood, I tend to think that I knew the best places in New York, until I traveled just outside the city. Aqualis is now the only place I recommend when in Brooklyn and looking for seafood.
I highly recommend this to any lovers of seafood.
European food at it's finest. – Never been to Europe, thats ok come to Aqualis Grill, where you will taste the best seafood out there. I go to this restaurant almost every week. It has a very unique atmosphere, very relaxing, and the food is astonishing.
After you have been here, you will never go anywhere else. Their prices are low, and they have a great service.
Awesome Mediterranean Food – Went back to Aqualis a second time after going when it first opened a few months ago and was as impressed this time around: fresh ingredients, tasty and healthy dishes and good wine. Couldn't get enough of the fresh bread and the roasted peppers dip, but would suggest holding off on too much of those as you need to leave some room for the main course (good size, but not overwhelming portions). Would highly recommend the lamb chops, (even though this is a seafood place) as they were done to perfection. Will gladly return to this place again.
great place to dine – I have dined in this place couple of time, and I always come back for more. I never ever got disappointed, the service is great, the food is delicious, and the owner is very inviting. They have a good selection of wines and beer. I’ve tried most of the appetizers and I love the veggie chips and octopus in particular, but everything is good. Also, the main dishes are delicious and never disappoint you that is why I go back for more.
I recommend this place to at least try it once because I know once you’ve tried I guarantee you that you will go back for more.
