Excellent atmosphere, food is top notch, and Lisa (bartender) is the bomb! They also accommodated for us on their busy night even though we didn't have a reservation.

Dont miss this restaurant. Great food, good wine list, friendly and efficient servers(TRISH is a delight) the atmosphere on the canal sets the mood for a relaxing food treat. We especially like their greens and fish specials. Never been disappointed! Our go to eatery when in Town! A Utica treasure!

Great service and great food. Took time to recognize the lives lost in the 9/11 tragedy.

Nice restaurant, the drinks were not good.. my wife and sister in law had an orange pina colada and another apple type of drink, I guess they’re wines must be better than the cocktails, the bread they serve is okay but would be better if they had olive oil options with the bread instead of the super small butter, the main entree’s wa ... read more

Outdoor ambiance and food can't be beat! Canopied outside overlooking running canal, natural mini-waterfall, woodsy serenity, alongside vintage menu of branded Utica classics. The East Utica fried meatballs, chicken riggies extra spicy, and prize-winning Adirondack Lagar by Saranac fulfills happiness! Mike our server, obviously local ... read more

The Tomahawk steak itself was super delicious. It was cooked medium as I ordered. It had a fantastic crust on it. The rack of lamb my wife had was great. The mashed potatoes that came with the steak were gummy and not anything that great. The parmesan risotto that came with the lamb was excellent. It was a busy Saturday evening but s ... read more

Great place along the canal for a nice summer dinner out. The food was great, the service was spectacular and the drinks were delicious. If you have a choice, sit outside. The vibe is wonderful.

Some guy on the phone claimed he was at this place yelling about an elevator, but I don't think he has anything to do with this business.

Came here for a special dinner with my brother from out of town. It was a beautiful day and I was able to reserve a table by the water, which was nice. It was a weeknight, a Weds I think. I wanted to show off our great Utica food, as my brother always enjoys it. The food was okay, nothing special, and small portions for the price. Bu ... read more

They were understaffed for an event planned months in advance, bartender didn't have glasses ready, food came out late and was mediocre.

It was my husband's 75 birthday and we did not even get a compliment wish, drink or dessert or anything. Lunch was not as impressive as our former visit at dinnertime. Noise level is very loud. The menu was fine but I think it was the waiter that left us wanting the waitress we had on our last visit. We wanted the magical experience ... read more

What can I say but perfect. Roses on the table, great wine and food that was cooked to order. So accommodating to any allergies. The view inside and out with the canal and the lights and the of course the delicious food made for a romantic dinner even in a pandemic. Safe distancing. Go and enjoy.
ladyjane162 via - Feb 20, 2021
Went last night for a date night with my girlfriend. Our server, Madison, was fantastic. The French onion soup was one of the best we’ve ever had and the tomahawk steaks were some of the best steaks we have ever had. Will definitely be back in the future when we are in the area!
Dakota Filipiak via - Feb 13, 2021
Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value. Delicious Italian food well worth the visit. Always a stop when I come back to Utica for a visit.

Dave Morgan was a great host. I heard him on the phone complaining about the elevator. He wanted to punch the mechanic in the face.
Kurdt M via - Dec 26, 2020
Utica is surprisedly full of good restaurants Aqua Vino is a great restaurant ! The menu is full of one mouth watering dish after another. There is nothing I wouldn't try. As a bonus the service is top notch also. Enjoy!!

My uncle Dave Morgan used to own this place but I only went there one time. I didn't get to see uncle Dave because he was stuck in the elevator but other than that it was a good time.
