The filet is always great, as are their seafood specials. The dinner menu is limited but the variety of foods is great. Our waitstaff was wonderful, we are always taken care of in great fashion.

Our sever Angelique was amazing! We had the gnocchi appetizer (so good) capers salad and the salmon. My husband had the rigatoni bologna and also really liked it. The views are unbeatable here for the sunsets. Fantastic wine list and cocktails, and the bar area is also very nice with great views for after dinner drinks:)
Perfect night- would highly recommend.

Our server Paige was outstanding. She welcomed us, gave us a very nice overview of the menu, engaged us in friendly conversation, and even had the staff sign a card since it was our anniversary! Her recommendations were spot on, and the food was prepared and plated to perfection.

We had an excellent meal. I ordered the fillet which was and excellent piece of beef cooked perfectly, and with an outstanding bacon onion sauce. My wife had the salmon special which was cooked uniquely and was quite delicious. Our server, Ann, did an excellent job including handling some challenging situations from the table across the room. A very enjoyable meal.

The food is always outstanding and the views are awesome. It's definitely not a fast food or chain type of restaurant and yes, you do pay more for the experience but we believe it's worth it.

I eat out 2-3 times a week and this was the worst experience I have had .. especially for a higher end restaurant. The waiter brought a pot of coffee and juice. The pot of coffee was cold and was taken off a dirty tray of dishes (cleared from another table). The juice was warmer than the coffee. The waiter brought tray of jelly and butter but no cream and sugar. Had to ask two times for sugar which he finally brought and dropped on table. Had to ask three times for cream. He got it from same dirty tray of dishes and again dropped with an attitude. My friend had ordered a bagel to have before breakfast meal and it never came. We finally just left. I do not usually write reviews but felt compelled to in this case. I would not recommend Aerie to anyone. Very disappointed.

There are limited menu items. No appetizers or small plates to begin the mean. The taste of the food was average and the risotto was a hodge podge of what appeared to be leftover veggies and other dinner sides mixed in. Overall, the ambience is the best part of the experience. Also, based upon other similarly priced dining experiences, it was extremely overpriced. Average on taste and high on price.

My significant other and I booked reservations for our anniversary and we had the most fabulous time dining here. Our waiter Kenneth was outstanding and such a gentleman. Excellent services provided all around. It’s very welcoming once you enter upstairs from the elevator, and all of the staff was so kind. The staff even gave us an anniversary card thanking us for celebrating our special occasion there, and wishing us a happy anniversary. The best part about the entire restaurant is the gorgeous view from the 16th floor. We ate right around sunset and the view was out of this world. Whenever we are in the area again, we would love to dine here again. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area!

I visited for a much-needed getaway with my boyfriend. This was actually the first time we had dined out since the beginning of the COVID pandemic and were very pleasantly surprised - everything was great and it didn’t feel too strange. It was easy to make a recommendation, we were able to get a table at a great seat with a view of the sunset, and the service was impeccable. The food was wonderful - we both shared the Aerie salad and each got the filet - fantastic! I highly recommend!

I brought my kids to this restaurant explaining how upscale and classy it is! They was NOT impressed because it was extremely loud! There was a bridal shower of nearly 40 women and they laughed an SCREAMED the whole time! I told my daughter, they're spending alot of money over there....her response was....SO ARE WE! Their first experience could've been better!

The special was a tomahawk steak, it was over cooked and under seasoned. Disappointed in the result of what could have been the best steak I ever ate. My wife loved her bolognese, it was full of flavor.

This was our first dining experience at Aerie and we were so disappointed! Our waitress, while friendly forgot our drinks at the bar (we waited for 20 minutes), we had to ask for our drinks again. In fact I’m not really sure what our waitress did. We never saw the same person twice except for her to bring our bill at the end of our meal...which was also incorrect. Other people would ask if we needed anything, brought our courses, and took away dirty dishes. We will not go back. The view was nice but they put another table right next to us, clearly less than 6 feet apart. Just another restaurant that you way over pay for the view.
