Aquatini - Just ok

Well, went to Aquatini this past Saturday night and it was ok. To start, the martinis were actually very good...i had the TikiTini which was made with fresh mago puree...yummy! Appetizers were also very good...Crabcakes with spicy wasabi sauce and the blue cheese salad. Dinner however was lacking! I had the Ahi Tuna with wasabi cream sauce...tuna was supposed to be rare but was actually closer to medium. The wasabi cream sauce was good. The "seasoned rice" was the most bland rice i have ever tasted...need to ask for salt and pepper to give it some flavor! Sweet and sour bok choy was neither sweet nor sour. My husband had the Eggplant Parcels which he said were ok but would have been better with risotto instead of the couscous it came with. My sister had the Filet with garlic mashed potatoes (which were cold and had to be sent back). She said the filet was good and cooked as she ordered it. Dessert was very good. I had creme brulee...probably the best i have ever had. Siter had the chocolate flourless cake which she liked.
So, i would not make the trip from southern NH to go there again for dinner and if I happened to be in Newburyport i would probably try somewhere else for dinner!
