“Very Neat Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

We ate here on a Saturday at lunch. It wasn't too crowded as we thought it might be. There was a children's birthday party right next to our table, but we asked to move and they where happy to handle our request. The food was great and very classy. The scenery while eating was very neat as there are aqurjums surrounding you. I would do it again anytime and would definitely recommend to all ages.

“Good food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Of course the food is a little expensive - it is a destination, not just a restaurant. It is very similar to Rainforest Café in that respect and in the menu. However, unlike Rainforest's unique experience and décor, Aquarium is like a very classy, upscale restaurant - good lighting, modern décor, nice music, etc. - it just happens to have a big aquarium in the middle. And of course they emphasize that and the touristy aspect, but you could easily have another nice restaurant move into the space and be a great experience because of how it is designed. It can easily accommodate a family there to see the aquarium or a special occasion or business meal.

The burger and chicken sandwich (very large with 2 breasts) were very good. The kettle chips were standard out of the bag fare, and the fries while not unique, were tasty.

Desserts were tempting, but we were full and running late.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

Coming from Louisiana for a quick mini vacation with an 8 year old and 18 month old. We used City pass and paid the extra discounted cost for the ride bracelet. If you go here you must do the whole experience. Including the train ride though the shark tunnel. We ate dinner upstairs and the kids really enjoyed that. The food was great and the staff was very informed about the marine life. They also welcomed my 8 year olds many questions. Its a place we would go to again in a few years.

“for the out of towners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

this is a fun place to eat, especially if you have guests coming from out of town, or you are visiting houston. be prepared to spend on more than just the meal - you'll probably want to ride the carnival rides outside. by all means take the train ride through the shark tank.

the food is good and the portions are generous. it is noisy - lots of families. cost of the food is not outrageous, but clearly more than your typical chain. make reservations or be prepared to wait, no matter what the time of day.
