Lunch dining. Window blinds obscure the sight across the harbour. There are materials available which block out the strong afternoon sun yet allow clear window views.
Poor food presentation. Bland taste. Quality of beef and sushi are very poor. Unclean wine glasses. Inadequate dispensing of soap in washroom.
Only the wine was acceptable.

If you love loud music + clubbing atmosphere in the afternoon, you may enjoy it.
For the new price $488 for two, I will recommend somewhere else

The environment is very crowded, I think the restaurant didn’t really follow the govt guidelines of Covid-19 Instructions on the seat limitations.
The afternoon tea dessert is really bad, the restaurant didn’t refill the food, and most of the time the dessert plates are empty.
When my friends arrived the restaurant ( we made reservations) they waited outside for 15 minutes to go in, then no staff serve them until I arrived after 15 mins. Bad service as the restaurant is over crowded, not enough staff.
The restaurant is super noisy with DJ music, maybe I made a wrong choice.

The dessert corner is a mess and the restaurant did not refilled the dessert on time. Some of the dessert melt as the sun shines directly on it.

The brunch is good, a lot of food and great free flow cocktail. Excellent service. However the dining areas was too crowded, tables very close to each other, and our chairs were not very clean. Otherwise this will be a 5 stars

We always enjoy a brunch at Aqua because the food and service is excellent. On New Years Day the music became progressively louder over the course of our visit and reached a level more suited to a nightclub and we could not carry on our conversation without shouting

The festive brunch menu was quite misleading. The drinks section reads that with the meal you can either choose 100$, 300$ or 1,500$ free flow bubbly, and get espresso martini, Bloody Mary and wine too. However, when you get to the restaurant, the wait staff told me it only applies when you choose the 300$ or more option. When I showed the wait staff how the menu read, they told me I was incorrect. Only once I called the manager did he acknowledge that the menu was misleading and gave me an espresso martini on the house. While the food and ambience was great, I thought the menu was quite misleading and at the same time, I didn’t care for being told by the wait staff that I was reading the menu incorrectly. This put a slight dampener on our anniversary brunch.

Service was poor. Asked for “happy retirement” to be written when presented with desert. Happily confirmed but didn’t materialise. Service was slow to take orders and often forgot drinks.

Sushi and steak was good but the rest, very average.

A disappointing experience to celebrate a very special occasion for my dad. Shame

Given the mixed review I've read on Tripadvisor, my experience was better than expected. The views and ambiance were great, and the food was not bad. The wait staff treated us very well. The only disappointment was that we asked if the tiramisu could be part of the dessert platter, and in the end, it was not.

The good: I celebrated my partner's birthday here. Very easy to work with the restaurant to arrange a memorable brunch. Beautiful views of the harbour and Hong Kong island. Our glasses were promptly topped off - so the free flow packages are a great option. Food is delicious and well done.

One improvement opportunity: the pace of the food service was on the slow side. Normally fine but just be prepared to have your meal run the full 2 hour duration if you are doing brunch. Don't arrive too hungry.

Overall we had a wonderful time and we plan to return.

Booking this restaurant was complicated. Booked on Open Table and was canceled. Rebooked and tried phoning restaurant but never got through after 5 tries. Left voice mails that were never returned. Too difficult to book.

Food service seemed rush because as we just started to have our first course all 1st to 3rd course came within minutes but luckily we have told them we would hold on the main and we will inform them when we're ready for it. As for the celebration package with the half bottle champagne, it was tasty but wouldve appreciated them to ask us if we would like to have that champange now or to be brought home to enjoy as we have availed the free flow upgrade package. Didnt get to enjoy the free flow as we had too many of our own. And when they ask us about having some water, i thought it would be regular water not a bottle that has been charged to my bill. But we couldnt do anything since we drank it anyways so i hope they would clarify with us before giving us a bottle of water that will cost more. Overall service was great food was amazing wish we had more time. Will definitely be back.

Besides the amazing view, the Sunday brunch at Aqua is great value for money. The service is impeccable as is the quality and quantity of the food. Who would have thought that combining Japanese and Italian fare would make for such a great combination. The oyster and seafood platters were fantastic and the desert platter completely over the top delicious. I loved the hot stone that came with the scallops. I would highly recommend Aqua for your weekend brunch with friends of family.

Great ambience with fabulous view of the Victoria Harbour. The only point for us was food. I wish the menu had a few more international options - like a few more pizza, pasta and antipasti options.

The waitress speaks in English with heavy ascent. Turns out ordering something that we haven't ordered - some kind of appetizers, not until I read the invoice.
As I ordered the Golden ticket set, which already have a lot of food, which I did not really recognise which food is not included in my meal.

Feeling disappointed.
