Indulge at the Aqua Grill, Ponte Vedra, Florida.. Give your senses a treat at this exquisite restaurant. Steve and I found out it’s all about the food at the Aqua Grill. The menu is eclectic and has something for every taste. Adding to this dining experience is the incredible décor and scenery.
Where to start? The wine of course! The Aqua Grill has a fully stocked bar and an impressive wine selection. This is noticed as soon as you enter the establishment. Not being much of a wine connoisseur, I recommend the wine flight that is offered. The wine flight is three different wines sampled in 3oz glasses. The choices are: White, Chardonnay, Red, Progressive and Pinot Noir.
Steve and I visited for lunch. We found the prices comparable to other fine dining establishments in the area. That being said, the quality of the food stood above the competition. There’s a reason this restaurant has stood the test of time in Ponte Vedra. The Aqua Grill has been in business here for more than twenty seven years. I tried one of the specials for the day, the crab quiche paired with a Caesar salad. The quiche was cooked to perfection. A perfect blend of cheese and crab meat. My picture does not do this dish justice. You’ll just have to trust me on how good it tastes.
Steve decided on the Grilled Mahi-Mahi, paired with a potato cake and spinach. Steve loves his seafood and it’s one of his joys of visiting Florida. He was not disappointed and enjoyed every bite. The Mahi-Mahi was perfectly seasoned. The spinach was not mushy and over cooked as we have sometimes found to be the case at other establishments. The potato pancake was a wonderful play on the traditional mashed potatoes. The entire meal was a pleasure in every bite.
Moving to the dining experience. Beautiful and elegant would describe the atmosphere. We dined outside on the patio overlooking the water. There’s a peacefulness dining outside. The weather was warm, but the shaded patio area made it feel like you were in paradise. The service was phenomenal and our waitress was knowledgeable about the food. Our glasses were never empty and she was very attentive, but not to the point of being an annoyance. Steve and I enjoyed our romantic lunch, delicious food and all that The Aqua Grill has to offer. If you find yourself in the Ponte Vedra area, just south of Jacksonville Beach, Indulge in the Agua Grill…
