Seattle Weekly's Description

Agua Verde functions as a kayak and canoe dispensary in the University District, but the attached canteen is worthy of a visit even if you're not in need of a boat. The food is middling, but the restaurant's waterfront setting and sunny energy is beguiling. Proteins for tacos and burritos are frequently overcooked, although there's nothing wrong with the sturdy chips and selection of housemade salsas that a shot of hot sauce can't fix. Agua Verde is the rare restaurant where diners always seem to enjoy their meals, regardless of the food's overall quality. Perhaps the margaritas help.

Tips from foursquare

  • Thrillist on 06/12/13

    Recover from any near-death watersport experiences with some quesadillas, tortas, and tacos, along with lots of locally-made keg wine.

  • Cheapism on 08/31/11

    Waterfront dining on a budget. Lunch here for a view of the Montlake Cut and tasty Baja eats at around $8 a plate. During weekday happy hour, pay for a 2-hour kayak rental and get a 3rd hour free.

  • ToryBurch on 04/15/11

    Kayak past the houseboats, through the lily pads at the Arboretum or straight into Lake Washington.

  • LeeAnn D. on 08/10/10

    Fish Tacos!!! Best!!!

  • Chris on 11/20/09

    Try the cranberry cole slaw - it's surprisingly good, just like the Anthony Michael Hall sandwich at the SNL 5-timers Club.
