I'd like to be generous in my review, but we had several issues when we visited Aqua Reef for lunch today. The main problem was two items we ordered, and looked forward to, were delayed with no explanation, and probably wouldn't have been brought to us at all had we not asked about them. We ordered a sushi roll as... More

Glad we arrived early for lunch, as this place gets slammed during peak hours. Warm, elegant ambiance with seating at the sushi bar or tables. For us, the flatscreen over the sushi bar was a major minus in this lovely atmosphere, tho at least we could get away from it. The CA roll appetizer was about standard, but my husband's... More

The food is amazing! The taste of these dishes are delicious. The sushi is the best in town! The way the chefs combine the different food and spices are a culinary delight! I highly recommend this restaurant. I eat here often and try something new all of the time! I have enjoyed every dish! So far!!!

If you want excellent Asian food and service at a very reasonable price this is the restaurant to experience in Las Cruces. My wife and I try to go there at least once per month. Our last visit was on her birthday, and Aqua Reef was her first and only choice. She was treated very special. And do not be... More

Asian fusion with something for everyone in our small group. Loved the local flare--pecan crusted sushi roll! Elements of cuisine from Korean, Japanese, Thai, and more. The floating boats at the bar were neat, but we enjoyed our dinner at a table.

The restaurant was very nice. The atmosphere was perfect, warm and clean. The service was also very good. The sushi was ok. It wasn't bad but it was kind of bland. They had many other things on the menu so I would like to return and try one of their non-sushi options.

I suppose if this is the only option, or if you have hours and hours to kill, eat here. I've dined in Europe and quite enjoyed the slower pace of a meal out there; however, the pace at this restaurant was absurdly slow. I could understand slower service if the place was packed or during a peak hour, but we... More

Aqua Reef is the best restaurant in Las Cruces, in my humble opinion. The food is unique, fresh, and extremely well prepared.
