Looking back onto my list of restaurants that I want to go to, I saw one that really stood out to me. Aquagrill. Doesn't it just roll off your tongue? Anyway, I was thinking of that among other things as my family (Big Family) waited patiently to be seated at this densely packed neighborhood restaurant. The first thing that I noticed as I stepped off the subway was just how blue the outside of the restaurant was. That was until I remembered that the restaurant was meant to be Aqua, and I continued on my trek towards the best oysters in town. Normally, I'm not a fan of oysters, but when we finally sat down at our beautiful table, and I opened my Aqua menu that I realized how good the oysters looked. We ordered around forty oysters for the table, and I got my first soft shell crab. I t was deep fried and very crispy, but overall very delicious. For my entree, I ordered grilled scallops with mashed potatoes, which was a tad bit overcooked and very plain. The waiter who we ordered with was very nice and very enthusiastic, but the guy who served us water spilled some on my grandma. The highlight of the meal would have to be the oysters which were very fresh and very sweet. This restaurant did not live up to my expectations even though the meal itself was very good. I rate Aquagill a 8.3/10.
