Aqua is cool, professional, and one of the best restaurants in San Francisco. To say that chef Mich`l Mina has a way with fish is like saying Italians have a way with shoes: every dish is cooked with exquisite care, every detail is well-considered, and everything is well-executed. The menu changes with the seasons, but they almost always have a sea bass which is utterly peerless. Exquisite flower arrangements, beautiful crystal, recessed lighting, and cool tones complete the experience.
