Aquariva Italian Kitchen + Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Try to snag a seat on the outdoor patio to enjoy enchanting water views and people-watching at this sleek, multilevel restaurant next door to the River's Edge Hotel & Spa. The seasonal farm-to-table menu offers many dishes that may be ordered in small or large sizes, and all are designed for sharing. Vegetarians will find plenty of choices, such as gnocchi with morels, crispy flatbread with shaved black truffles, or a grain salad featuring black rice, quinoa, farro, cauliflower, pickled shallots, arugula and mushrooms. Carnivores will enjoy the golden roast chicken with fennel and dried fig; pork schnitzel with cabbage, smoked apples and Gruyère; or rib-eye and strip steaks. Desserts, such as a classic cookie plate, are also intended for two or more persons. An extensive bar menu offers more casual meal choices such as burgers made with local meat, mussels, and charcuterie boards. Sunday brunch boasts a make-your-own Bloody Mary and mimosa bar, as well as classics such as eggs Benedict and steak and eggs.
