This is a beautiful venue with three rooms to choose from and a gorgeous patio. However, the packages are pricey and the service the night of our wedding was not the best. Some things that we discussed prior to the event were not done such as placement of flowers and the card box. The venue did not seem like it was freshlyi cleaned prior to our wedding.

My biggest issue was the service. The guests that were outside were not offered any hor d'oeuvres. There was a large delay during the dinners when serving in between salad, dinner, and then coffee/cake. The servers did not follow-up or remember when guests asked for things. Some guests were not offered coffee at all or only decaf when the package included coffee service. At the end of the night, the staff cleared the tables while the guests were still in the room. They removed the escort cards that were on the tables and placed them all in another part of the room. Then we had to collect them and redistribute them to our guests that had planned to take them home. It just felt like they wanted to get us our towards the end of the night.

Our coordinator was wonderful but the night of the wedding there were too many mistakes. It is a beautiful venue but I don't you get the quality of service for what you are paying.

I knew I wanted to be married on the water in Buffalo/Niagara region. We looked at a few venues but once I saw the River Room at Acqua, I knew it was perfect! We had our ceremony on the deck and reception for 50 guests indoors, with full access to the deck all evening. There was some concern when our original contact left the company with no notice to us, but Ali filled in beautifully. I had a lot of ideas in mind for the reception décor and everything was fulfilled perfectly. Service all evening was great and the food outstanding. The only other negative was that the vegetarian entrée wasn't as selected. Overall excellent and I'm glad we selected Acqua for our wedding.

Amazing night here, the food is amazing. Everything from the initial meeting with them to the tasting and up to the big day was above and beyond. They did everything as we had hoped from the decor to the seating. The sunset over the water just made the whole night.like a fairytale

Originally when we booked with Acqua, John was my coordinator and he was not great, and thats putting it kindly. Once we switched to Alexandra (Ali), we had nothing but good things to say. I was quite hesitant about the wedding after reading some not so nice reviews but everything was wonderful. The food got rave reviews, and Ali even made sure that the night went according to schedule. My only complaint was that I had to remind them to put out our NYE favors 30 minutes before the new year. Ali really made it as stress free as possible and she made sure the room looked exactly as I wanted it to look. Much better experience than all of the mediocre reviews on this website!

We held a small wedding at Acqua Restaurant on November 7th. We received great feedback from our guests on the venue and overall set-up of the room. Our wedding ceremony was also onsite which added additional logistics for the staff. Allie was very nice to work with and responded to all of my emails quickly and addressed any questions/concerns that we had during the planning process. We were able to work within a smaller budget and have a lovely Friday evening wedding that our friends and family enjoyed.

We had our rehearsal brunch here at AcQua on the patio and WOW it was absolutely stunning. The event planner I worked with, Alexandra, was accommodating and made sure everything went perfectly. The food was delicious and I would recommend AcQua for any type of wedding event; showers, rehearsals, or a wedding!

On June 7, 2014 , we had our daughter's wedding reception at Acqua in the Harbor Room. Everything from the food to the venue was spectacular ! Many of our guests commented that this was the best wedding they ever attended. Not to mention, the views and the sunset from the deck are beautiful !

Many thanks to Molly and her staff for doing a great job !

Acqua was a beautiful venue. When we arrived around 5:45, the sun was shining into the room and it looked magical. The room was set up perfectly I don't think I could have done a better job myself. Everything from where our guest book was located to the place cards to the card box was just right. We had three bars, two inside and one outside, and I think that was great. The food was excellent, I just wish I had more time to eat more. They were accommodating to vegetarian requests, as well as kids meals. John was very flexible with us, and always reassured us if we had worries. We heard some negative reviews about Acqua prior to our wedding, but after our event, we will never say a negative thing about them. Several of our friends and families said it was one of the best if not the best wedding they have ever been to. When my husband and I walked around the room we saw a lot of empty plates, which is always a good sign that the food was great. I would love to attend a wedding here as a guest so I could enjoy more about it. Beautiful room (it was recently remodeled) with a great view.
