Meet the Parents
Feb 12, 2014 by: Marilisse from Washington DC, District of Columbia
This establishment was a great setting to our parents' having dinner for the first time. It was elegant but not uptight. The food is exquisite.
It used to be excellent

It had been several months since we last dined at Aqua 103. We always enjoyed our dinners there and especially liked the martinis, so we were interested to see what all of the changes everyone has been talking about were. When we entered we noticed how the lounge and the lounge business have grown. We were quickly seated by our favorite waiter, We started by ordering drinks, which as always, were excellent. We ordered the cheese plate to share for our appetizer and then we both selected crabcakes, as we remembered them as being one of the best things on the menu. The cheese plate featured several excellent cheeses, including a wonderful aged gouda. It seemed to take forever before our dinners arrived. They were disappointing. The crabcakes used to be large, broiled lump crabcakes. The ones that we were served were small, deep fried and full of filler. They were really rather disappointing. Nowhere near as good as they used to be. By this point in time, we had spent over two hours in the restaurant for one round of drinks, one shared appetizer, and two disappointing entrees. We had prior arrangements for nine o'clock, so we had to forgo dessert in order to be there on time. Besides the excellent martinis and good cheeses, it was a disappointing evening. It will probably be a while before we return.
Happy hour and lunch

Aqua 103 has made some big changes. Lunch for $7.00- all you can eat soup and salad. Other items at affordable prices. Happy hour is amazing. 1/2 price drinks and appetizers. There is a nice lounge menu as well. Best crab cakes ever!
Nice Place to Eat and Chat

I met a friend for dinner a week ago and she suggested this restaurant. It has a very inviting atmosphere and, despite what I had expected, it was not pretentious or over the top. I got the special (fliet minon, salad, and side) for $20 which was very reasonable. The steak was one of the best steaks I've ever had at a restaurant before. My husband and I will be visiting again soon.
Great place to unwind

Just return from a cruise and wanted one more relaxing evening with friends. Auqa 103 has the best happy hour. Martinis are made exactly as requested which can be a challenge in many restaurants. Spinich salad is wonderful baby spinich with sauteed onions & strawberries and wonderful dressing on the side to add as you choose. The Salmon BLT is presented very nicely. On a toasted bun, large piece of grilled salmon presented on top of lettuce, tomatoe and bacon with a light sauce and salad on the side. Jess is a wonderful bartender/waitress, always has a smile.
