Check the terminal window while you’re still editing the file.  I bet the message is there already before you save / quit Aquamacs.

If you do M-x server-start in Aquamacs, and then use EDITOR=emacsclient, it should work — because if you call emacsclient from the command line, it will wait until you’re done editing the file.  You don’t need to quit Aquamacs.
