  • "Went for lunch. Arya has a huge menu with many options. I liked the different mediterranean choices from various countries including Italian, Persian, Greek....... I took a friend for the first time, and she can't wait to go back. The bruschetta was excellent as was the chicken pasta in an alfredo sauce. They have entertainment on Friday nights. Pasquale Eposito is an outstanding local Italian singer. Worth a trip to Arya is hear him! (see their schedule for his performance)"

  • "The food was excellent. They have captured the subtle essence of Persian cuisine. I had the fessinjoon which was excellent. The wine list was limited and it was interesting to find gewurtztraminer listed under red wines. The felafel were considered outstanding by all in our party. The most unique that I have ever tasted, and I am a big fan of Egyptian ta'miyah. Service was very attentive, but not obtrusive. It is certainly worth returning when I get a yearning for Persian food again."

  • "we came to Arya several times and each time our experience was moderately worse than before. Not sure exactly what it is but this time was the worst. Probably not frequent again."

  • "My family tried appetizers, salads, and several entrees, all well prepared with fresh ingredients. They happily served a smaller portion of a regular entree to my 12 year old. Several large groups were celebrating, but the noise level was minimal and service was attentive but non-intrusive. Would return for a simple dinner or special occasion."

  • "Took advantage of the $39.99 special for 2; one appetizer, two entrees, one dessert. While this did not include the entire dinner menu selection of kebabs, there were plenty of selections to chose from and for the price it was outstanding. Perfect for a Monday-Thursday treat.."

  • "Extremely POOR Service for our Team Lunch of 12 + People Reservations were made a WEEK in Advance Staff did NOT care about our request for speed (No Food for over an Hour ) !!"

  • "We recently discovered how fun it is to take the family for an early dinner at Arya - the food is wonderful, and on Friday and Saturday nights (be sure to check), they have belly dancing! The kids really enjoyed it, as did the adults!"

  • "Great for special occasions, the food is ok/good, the live performance music and bellydancing are very good and worth checking it out and enjoying a nice dinner here."

  • "The original rates on the menu were around $15/entree but on Valentine's day, they put a menu which was $60/person and it was fixed price. We would have had 2 entrees and one dessert that would have cost us not more than 40$ or 50$. It was ridiculous to price it that way when their normal rates were much lower. We had a reservation but we walked out after we figured it was a ripoff!"

  • "Went to Arya for a Valentine's dinner with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Food was very good. Staff was outstanding, especially in helping us get small amounts of food to quiet my daughter. The Valentine's Day Prefix price was a bit steep, their normal menu being unavailable. It too bad we were unable to take advantage of the Jazz band they had for the night, as the little one was not in the mood for hang'n out."

  • "I came here on valentines day with my hubby! We both enjoyed the friendly staffs, the food and the bar. We did not see much of the belly dancer because she was busy entertaining the kids at the front table and since we were seated at the very back we did not het get to see her till we moved at the bar. Hopefully next time she will do her rounds faster so the people that are seated way back can enjoy the entertainment."

  • "I was excited to try this place since the reviews were overall very good. I ended up being very disappointed with the whole experience because at the end of our meal we were asked to give up our table so that they could seat a large party. We had just finished dessert and were chatting. It was very rude and I would not eat here again or recommend this restaurant. I called and left a message for the manager the next day, but did not hear back from anyone. The one bright spot was their pita bread which was very good."

  • "We had a group dinner here this week. We've been here a number of times, but it's typically just me and my hubby. The service received was awesome, the singer was high quality, the belly dancer was fun and the food was just awesome. The owner stopped by to see how things were going and was really attentive to everyone in the restaurant. This is definitely a place I'd recommend for groups and couples, whether you're looking for a good place for dinner or a place for an event."

  • "I dined at Arya before, and went back on another Friday with my in-laws for a birthday dinner. We all enjoyed the food and the entertainment. My son loved our server, Medina. She was very friendly; helpful and professional. As always, the food was delicious, and I will continue to recommend this place to family and friends. I enjoyed every bite of my Fesenjoon dish."

  • "The food was delicious we had the Bruschetta Toscana for appetizer A+ I had the Chicken Kebab with bone & my husband had the Shish Kebab both were very juicy & very tasty, and we also shared the Shirin Pollo another A+, and desert was outstanding we shared Exotic Bomba...mango, passion fruit, and raspberry sorbet inside a chocolate shell. We were here from 6pm - 10pm, at 6pm it was nice & quite so we had a nice romantic dinner by the fireplace. The Belly dancer started at about 8pm at the point the ambience is party-like which we enjoyed very much. Service was good, waiter could of been a tad more friendly. Belly dancer show was very cool, she come up to our table & danced. It was my husbands 1st time trying Persian food and he liked it !"

  • "Went out for a nice romantic time with my husband. Didn't happen, several small children running around and yelling, while management stood back and watched. Grant it is loud anyway with the belly dancers, still no place for out of control children. not sure if we are returning."

  • "Not a place I'd come back to often. The food was pretty good (I love Mediterranean/Middle Eastern cuisine, and this was decent), but the experience was frustrating. Admittedly, we came at the height of holiday office lunches (which is why we were there, too), but we immediately discovered that there was no parking, the place was LOUD, and service was very slow. It took them almost 20 minutes just to bring us a menu, then there was an agonizingly long time between each time seeing our server. Wouldn't have been a problem for dinner, but for an office lunch when we had a limited amount of time, it was a bit painful."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Arya is a wonderful combination of Persian & continental cuisine. I tend to go for the Persian, as it's quite delicious. Many other Persian restaurants have special rices, but Arya is the only one I know of with the tasty Adas Polo (I'm not even sure what's in it!)."

  • "We made reservations via OpenTable for 8 people for a table 7:30pm. We showed up at 7:25pm and were asked to wait for a few minutes. After about 5 mins, the manager showed up and said that he couldn't seat us. When I pointed out that the reservation was confirmed via OpenTable, he said that OpenTable was not always reliable, especially because we had made the reservations just a few minutes ago (BTW, we made the reservations at 7:13pm for a table 7:30pm, and that time they also had tables available at 7.45 and 8.00PM). I probably would not have written this review and just moved on because mistakes do happen but the lack of courtesy or sincere apology for the mess up (especially when we had 4 kids with us) was just astounding."

  • "...we went there for an evening - nothing we had was what I would call exceptional or distinctive. My wife and I both has a chicken dish. The chicken almost seemed like a "boiled" chicken. I would not go back here nor recommend it to anyone."

  • "Fri and Sat are entertainment nites that meant many well-dressed couples and families were in attendance. Food was mixed between Italian, Persian. Did have hummus part of mesa platter which was acceptable."

  • "This place is not spectacular - but there is nothing bad about it either. The food is "pretty good" not great and the atmosphere is nice. It was quiet enough so you could talk but also had enough activity to be interesting. All in all it was a good experience and I would recommend it for people who just want to go out for the evening."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "The food was fantastic. We had a party of 16, and 3 of us got different lamb dishes. All were wonderful. The chicken & beef kabobs, the dolmas, and the calamari are also wonderful. If you want to be decadent, order the balklava. They make it themselves and it is WONDERFUL."

  • "We went there for my birthday and had great service and great-tasting food from the Saffron Scallops to the seafood combo to the salmon, and the chicken kebab. They have a good wine and champagne selection and a full bar, as well. The place is great for groups of any size and have a good variety of Persian and Italian dishes. Desserts are very good too! I would go there again."

  • "Dined early before a show at the Mountain Winery. The interior is nicely done, well lit and displays a full bar. The menu is extensive, focusing on Persian and Italian food. Our server, Lisa (LJ), was fantastic - recommeding many items we would not have considered and explaining exactly what each dish contained. Out appetizer platter came with hummus, dolmeh, egglant and persian potato salad. Very yummy. The main courses were huge. I had a combination platter of filet mignon, chicken, and fish kebabs with a large serving of Persian rice, that was perfect. My wife had the chicken koobideh platter, loved it and there was so much she had to ask for a doggie bag. Yeah, midnight snack! We will be back!"
