Aqua: "Seafood" Aqua - CLOSED Tip by wrldtravler

Aqua - CLOSED, San Francisco: 3 reviews and 2 photos


Exquisite seafood presented in a sophisticated big-city setting at this top-ranked downtown restaurant.
A well-heeled, sharp-suited Financial District crowd frequents this sleek-as-a-shark dining room, which features attractive, spare decor, extravagant flower arrangements and large mirrors to reflect the deal-making crowds.

Favorite Dish: Diners ooh and aah over chef Michael Mina's creations, which rarely miss the mark. You might begin with a savory mussel souffle or roasted spot prawns stuffed with crab, or if you've just had a financial windfall, you could shell out for a parfait of Russian caviar. Then segue into Hawaiian swordfish au poivre with pancetta-wrapped shrimp dumplings, potato-crusted loin of wild salmon or the signature seared ahi tuna stacked over foie gras--surf-and-turf for the expense-account set.
