AQUA by El Gaucho

AQUA by El Gaucho

Seattle’s hidden jewel, gorgeous and warmly elegant, AQUA sparkles at the tip of Pier 70. Walls of glass showcase some of Seattle’s finest views of Elliott Bay, Magnolia Bluff and the Space Needle. Twitter: @AQUAbyElGaucho Blog: thegauchogridiron.com

Take in the view while sipping an AQUA Mojito on the sublime deck. The expansive outdoor deck is especially attractive on summer evenings, when spectacular sunsets await. Indoors, the spacious lounge and 85 ft. lighted wave bar is a showstopper in its own right.
Executive Chef Wesley Hood has created a menu featuring fresh seafood preparations with a hint of nostalgia. Fresh daily selections of fish and 28-Day Dry-Aged Certified Angus Beef® Steaks are prepared on an open-pit charcoal grill in the exhibition kitchen. The Emerald City Volcano provides a fiery climax to an extraordinary evening of culinary delight and intelligent service orchestrated by General Manager Sivi Mennen.

AQUA by El Gaucho showcases the dinner-as-theatre philosophy and signature hospitality made famous by veteran Seattle restaurateur Paul Mackay.
