I don't know why we don't go to Aqua more often? Possibly is because one night there was a very loud group there, which management did not calm down, or because the background music is too loud for our old ears, but it is always lowered on request. Maybe it just the habits we develop.
Any way, we went last night and had a most enjoyable evening. The food was interesting and well prepared. The service and ambiance were all one could wish, and the price, while not cheap was certainly in the reasonable range. I'm pretty sure we will return.
Aqua, of course, has several seafood dishes, as the name implies, but also has meat, chicken and vegetarian. They also have a full Sushi Bar and do an excellent job in this department. They have a full Bar and are handicapped accessible. The restaurant is located in Mt. Lookout Square at 1020 Delta Ave, 45208-phone 513-919-27829(aqua). There is Valet Parking but in midweek the restaurant and square are not that crowded.
After my Bombay, you may be getting tired of this part, I chose the Scallop Ceviche, two sliced scallops on a bed of curly endive and accompanied with large plantain chips. This was followed by a Dragon Roll built around shrimp tempura with eel, avocado and of course rice. Marilyn's usual drink is either club soda or a non-alcoholic Cranberry spritzer. Last night she chose Duck Ravioli, for her first course and a beautifully roast chicken for the main. The chicken comes with fingerling potatoes and fresh, sweet green peas and mushrooms, all in a delicious sauce. The others had crusted perch and scollop's as there main courses. Two different dishes, if you're confused. Our total bill including tax and tip was approximate $65, that did not include the other guest, who each paid their own.
