Beautiful view and great location. The food was lovely and definitely worth the price. I am quite a wine lover so I was very disappointed when the waiter just came to the table and said, “here’s your red wine”. When I asked what I was having he replied “I don’t know”. This should not be happening at a place like Aqua. We also got a glass of red wine after we already finished the meal that it was meant for. This also shouldn’t be happening when having the tasting menu.
Besides all this it was still a great experience and I will definitely be back.

Wonderful ambience, beautiful scenic. Food & dessert are very tasty, would prefer the bread serves warm tho. Service was ok, probably was busy, hence not too attentive but overall was good. Strongly recommend for at least one time visit, but the price is abit too steep.

Aqua continues to be a striking venue with tasty, high-quality food. The views are quintessential Hong Kong and worth paying the extra money that it definitely costs to eat here. Our staff was pleasant and around most of the times we were looking for them. We went pre-theater and had a delightful time!

Window seats were too crowded, my chair was almost touching the next tables’. It was annoying as half the dining hall was empty and we couldn’t be seated elsewhere. It was a very cramped window seat. Our hot food arrived all at once then we were asked if we had any last orders. Food quality was good but the poor logistics ruined our anniversary meal. Please don’t offer a 1:45 pm reservation time slot and expect patrons to dine fast food style through over 5 courses by 3 pm, and consider spacing out your guests when seating.

Food as always was quite sensational and the service was very good. My only gripe was that despite making the booking online and with a special request, doesn't seem it was looked at or my request replied to, whether possible to fulfill or not, so of course I assumed it had been... Aside from that and the F-bomb dropping married idiot and his girlfriend beside us, was a great evening.

We had a special occasion to celebrate our 30 year anniversary and my husband's birthday. Manager Steven Lee and staff were accommodative to prepare a wonderful and memorable lunch for us with champagne, and photos taken. We were so impressed with their hospitality. Together with the best view in town on 29th floor, we simply had a fantastic time to remember for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend to all friends and family to go to this restaurant and in fact, we already did, and many bookings will be coming I am sure.

This restaurant has the wow factor from the second you walk in, the views overlooking Victoria harbour at night are breathtaking. We would highly recommend booking a window table to make the most of the view, coupled with the low lighting it's perfect for a romantic meal. My wife had the lobster and I had the lamb which were both fine dining at its best and the desserts were equally impressive.
I had let the restaurant know it was our honeymoon and they surprised us with the artwork on our dessert and taking a photo of us which they gifted to us framed at the end of the meal, a little touch that really was appreciated.
After the meal head upstairs to the bar for more amazing views and great cocktails.

I must say that it was disappointing dinner. At least I expected relaxed mood and fine food with fantastic view. However, the music and surrounding were too crowd and messy. The staffs only thought about quick rotation of tables. Everything was too quick and noisy to enjoy full dinner and nice night view. The dishes was nothing special compare with similar price of other restaurants. I don't want to recommend to anyone who I care. It is just enough to spend money for one night. That's it.

Having visited before we were very disappointed by our visit. Food quality was good although portion sizes very small despite high prices. Wine selected was out of stock and then difficult to get service for an alternate order. Wine prices - considering the street price of the various wines - appeared excessively high with perception not helped by stock out and poor and indifferent service.
Certainly not competitive with Felix where we dined the prior night.

The food was good, not amazing, and a tad overpriced, but you are paying for the views. The view is amazing. Odd mix of Japanese and Italian, but might be a good solution for groups? I would maybe go back next time I am in HK at least for the views.

Acqua is a good place to have dinner, watch the lightshow and get a fantastic view of the Hong Kong island. Food is very good and service is friendly even if a bit slow. Acqua is rather expensive but it is a very nice experience. Te tables are good both at the window and the somewhat bigger round ones and the view from the bar is spectacular.

Aqua was recommended by a friend who travels to Hong Kong quite a bit. It was a great experience overall. Food is pricey --very good, but overpriced in my opinion. The view is spectacular which is why one should go there at least once and splurge. Window seating costs extra--did not know that when I made my reservation. Service was good, though I did feel rushed which was a bit annoying. Overall, a worthwhile place to go and I would definitely go again.

Actually I was going to celebrate my wife’s birthday on 29Aug, which mentioned upon reservation made. However no staff noticed that and when I asked the reception, they replied there was nothing they could do.... that was embarrassed. Futhermore, while we were leave and asked the staff to take photo us, the female staff immediately felt like disgusted with out request and her attitude showed kind of discrimination because we are local?
Food was excellent, but the overall experience was disappointing.

The view is absolutely amazing and the service whilst good did require the occasional prompt. This did not interfere with our enjoyment at all as the atmosphere was buzzing and up beat and we were keen to soak up the view. The menu is varied and well priced for a special occasion We would go back without hesitation.

The portions are quite big and definitely worth its price. Really delicious but I think it’s better for sharing.

Bar service was quite bad, the staff was inattentive and it was hard to communicate with them— they don’t really respond to your questions and give vague responses. (I asked if I should bring my own cocktail down to the restaurant, they said “later”, “hostess” while walking away. / server spilt my drink and I asked her to clean it up a bit as it was super messy, she answered it’s normal to spill / she brought down the drinks and just left them on the table without acknowledging us ).

But the service in the restaurant definitely made up for it after I told them I just really want to have a great time. Really enjoyed the dinner! I hope I’m not asking for too much from them!

Fave dish was the risotto!
