The waiter was disputing what was in my booking. Food took extreme long to be served. Waited 30 minutes for the bill. We did not receive the drinks menu. Welcome cocktail was watered down and tasteless. Food was average. The scenery was dark including the toilets. The cake was left on the table without giving the guest a chance to sing happy birthday. None of the guest will be returning. It was a disappointing experience for a restaurant with a high reputation.

Service was rushed, plates and drinks being removed as soon as we had finished. On one occasion the drinks were taken when they had not been finished. The whole experience was poor and feeling it was rushed. Will go there for drinks, but not to eat....food quality and price ... not good.

People dining there can also be noisy. This atmosphere is definitely not for everyone, so choose wisely. Waitress forgot to bring me the specific menu for the special offer I booked, and also forgot to mention the free welcome cocktail, so had to remind her of both. The "Japanese" food itself was ok, but nothing amazing. If you are looking for a traditional Japanese meal, go elsewhere. However if you like dining in loud dance club-like environment, then this is for you.

Aqua Kyoto was the perfect setting for that! We were made to feel welcome and comfortable by the hosts, our waitress Paula was amazing. She was attentive, informed and ensured we had a good evening. The food was unbelievably great! The drinks were perfect and Paula answered any concerns we had. She recommended things and was keen to ensure we had a pleasant Experience. We will be coming back again very soon!! Thank you for a great evening.

We were told off for sipping from our water bottle, despite the fact that noone had come to offer us drinks or table water. We asked for the pre theatre menu we had booked. The guy smiled and walked away and didnt bother to bring it. After 20 minutes someone wandered over and asked if we had ordered - No - since we hadnt even got the menu. Ive never been so close to walking out of a restaurant. When we finally got to order the couple sitting next to us, who had arrived after us, were on their second course and sipping cocktails.

The waiter did make an error with the first drinks order and then our “doggie bag” was taken to be re-wrapped but never brought back. Apart from that it was a nice atmosphere and got busier over time. I would have appreciated a 15 mins warning that the time for the free flowing was coming to an end. Slightly felt robbed.

On the negative side we didn’t find the waitress either welcoming nor willing to provide much guidance on ordering the food. It was also quite cool around our table as the door onto the terrace kept opening. We would actually have ordered more food if we had had better information.

I booked it cause l thought it was one of those nice restaurants with just background music, boy was l wrong. It was so loud l couldn’t even hear my friend talking. They have a whole DJ. Also the waiter, was rushing us through the menu. Not what l expected at all.

Two of my friends have a nightmare with food allergies and eating out can be a pain to find something they can eat. But Aqua made them so much delicious food gluten free and dairy free, they had the best experience. Service was great. Good delicious! We did the bottomless brunch and were stuffed afterwards.
