Aqui Cal Mex Grill
A renowned chef, known for creating innovative inspired California cuisine, and an experienced fast food operator joined together. The fast food operator gave the chef a simple challenge:Create fine dining food using the flavors of the Southwest, Asia, California and Latin America. We will match the food with gorgeous decor and fill the place with art. Then, we'll add order-at-the counter service to make it hassle free. And above all, we will make it affordable.
I have to agree with Lisa - sorry guys. The food is disappointing, to say the least.
I just ate cold (which was supposed to be warm) salmon, and a crab cake which tasted as if someone had spritzed it on the inside with hairspray. One of my teenage daughters ordered a spicy tofu and polenta bowl - she took a couple of bites and couldn't eat any more. She said that the flavors didn't go at all well together. My other teenage daughter ordered knife-and-fork chicken taco. She said the flavor wasn't awful, but the dish didn't have much in the way of flavor and, again, it was cold when it was supposed to be warm.
We ended up at Chipotle, across the street, just to give them something to eat.
What a shame.
I don't think we'll be going back to Aqui until they get their act together.
I'll be watching out for other people's reviews, as time passes.
Aqui, come on - you can do better.
My husband went to the new Aqui in Cupertino last night. I've been to the one in Willow Glen and it was good so we had high hopes for this one in Cupertino. I ordered the salmon mango roll up which was so bad after one bite, I took it back and asked for a refund. The mango was hard and unripe. The salmon was just a pink fishy mush, the worse fish I've ever had in a resturant. My husband had the pork tacos which were not much better. Sure hope the owners get their act together and focus on making good food like they did for their Willow Glen location.
