    We started our evening by ordering a bottle of Mumm's, they were out of it, ordered a bottle of Prosecco, out of it, got splits. We ordered two appetizers and two salads. The beet salad my sister had was good, as were the calamari and the meatball appetizer, the problem was my salad. I ordered the Caesar, which came out with no dressing and stale croutons. I asked for the dressing and about 10 minutes later the waiter came out with a side of something that tasted like Miracle Whip. I called him over again and told him this, he said the kitchen must have given him the wrong dressing. He came back again and said they were out of caesar dressing and did I want another dressing. By that time, we were finished with everything else and needed to leave. My opinion is this, #1, their menu is huge and diverse and if they are out of so many things, they should make their menu smaller, #2, if the kitchen and/or bar are out of items, the servers should know that and not have the customer have to send something back and not have dinner at all and #3 the owner came over after our table was cleared to offer me something else to eat, as she didn't want me to be unhappy. She should have been over after the waiter told me they were out of the dressing to ask this, also she made a point of telling me twice they would not charge me for the salad as did the waiter. I would hope I would not be charged for a salad that wasn't dressed since they were out of the dressing, but for them to tell me 4 times that they wouldn't charge me, I felt like they were doing me a huge favor and that I should have paid for it. So I don't know if the problem is the communication between the kitchen, servers and managers or this restaurant is slow and not ordering many of their items on the menu, but the food is good, what they actually had in stock, so they need to rethink the menu and what they are good at. I will try the Redwood City restaurant to see if it differs from Cupertino. -

    We were a group of 10 & really enjoyed the food & entertainment-- belly dancer was great! Singer had a powerful, romantic voice and music for dancing was a terrific mix of fast & slow songs. But at the same time: Service was slow, & it's very noisy & crowded-- hard to get from table up to dance floor because there was only a very narrow path between tables-- Still, we had a really fun evening & will go back to celebrate more special occasions!

    Arya is an excellent restaurant if you want to have some space, some good food and a drink from a well set up bar. Service is non-obtrusive and there is a lot of space to spread out whether you are a small or large group. Lunch time in particular is excellent as it is not too crowded with a lot of parking space

    Have visited this restaurant often. They feature Persian and Italian menu. We go for the Persian kabobs. Food always of excellent quality and quantity, although a little pricey. You get what you pay for. This time we had a party of nine. The place was not busy but we seemed to overwhelm the kitchen. Drinks and appetizers came quickly but entrees took almost an hour to start arriving over a period of time. One order was incorrect and was replaced in fifteen more minuites. Three prople ordered dessert I assume for the delay, comp desserts were given to those that had not ordered dessert, but the three ordered dessert were still charged to the bill. Will still go back and hope this trip was an aberation.

    Food was great until dessert. We ordered a sorbet (fine) and the pistachios cheesecake. It looks like the cheesecake had been sitting for too many days outside the fridge. The taste was nasty so we called the server. He took it back but we were hoping he would come back with a fresh piece but no. He had nothing to offer, meaning they knew it was not fresh anymore. At least they could have offered the 2 espressos we bought. Not even a small commercial gesture, very disappointing.

    I have been going to Arya for many years. Their food is excellent. Service overall is good, people are friendly, and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. However, there is one waiter, a tall Mexican man, who has become quite a sourpuss. He is efficient and does his job, but because of his attitude he is not pleasant to have as a waiter.

    Have been here several times. Last time, I was surprised that the restaurant was somewhat empty. Service was slow. I was sat without being given a menu. Finally after being given a menu, it took them 10 min to come and get my order. This was surprising, the place was only 1/4 full. They have raised their prices 20%, maybe that is why they are not that busy anymore.

    Food and drinks have generally been good, but things can go wrong... "Quiet & romantic table went SO wrong" -- Pasquale (evening entertainment, needs to learn to sing -- this time was SO bad, I could no longer ignore who massacres my favorite songs). Other patrons seemed to enjoy it though, perhaps this is the place for tone deaf. Food was good, drinks were good, slightly marred with restaurant not clearing our reservation, and waiter switching mid-evening "your waiter went home, because there was not enough business. I was thinking of either bribing singer to be quiet, or to ask for ear plugs. All in all, lunch is a better venue, as you don't have to suffer through "entertainment"

    My only complaint is that I wish they'd offer a dark meat option for the chicken kababs. For a kabab, white meat just isn't as tender as dark meat. Therefore, I ordered the ground chicken koobideh in a combo with the ground beef koobideh. Both were very good.

    I reserved for Mother's Day and expected to be able to order off the full menu as there was no note on a Prefix menu on Open Table. When we sat down there was only a prefix menu available. Since my wife and I were not that hungry, we left and went to another restaurant. We eat here once every few months and always love it. It is not the restaurants fault, it is Open Tables fault.

    I The service was bad, the food was horrible and the price was outrageous and the entertainment was 3 children running wild around our table. The price was $40 each that included a limp salad with exactly one slice of roasted pepper, one section of a dry orange, two raw walnuts,a tiny bit of feta cheese, topped with a watery, tasteless dressing. A basket of warm, stale bread. The main dish two of us had was vegetable kabobs with rice. The kabobs were 5 strips of apparent zucchini, dry and burnt on a plate next to some almost warm basmati rice. We thought for sure the desert would be good. No luck there. . When we got the bill, they had included an 18% tip! I will never go there again.

    We've enjoyed dining at Arya since it first opened. This time it was for a 45th birthday lunch, attended by 4 diners ranging in age from 45 to 70. It was the older couple's first time at Arya. As usual, everyone in our dining party thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The Persian entrees were delicious and served beautifully, amidst large quantities of exquisite saffron rice. The birthday boy was brought a portion of chocolate duet cake, which we all sampled. He and I then split our favorite dessert: mango panna cotta, while the other couple enjoyed the wonderful baklava (made with pistachios rather than walnuts) with vanilla ice cream. Arya remains a reliable, great choice for lunch or dinner on special occasions or at any time!

    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.

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)

    I have eaten here previously, although only for lunch. I brought an out of town guest here for dinner this evening, and ended up being disappointed with the experience. The main reason: The place was dead. Only two or three other tables occupied while we were there. Food was OK, although not seemingly as fresh or well prepared as lunch. I will return - I really like Arya - just not for a midweek dinner.

    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!
