Tasty well presented dishes - a little unique, not boring. Staff is gracious, "knows their stuff" which is a pleasure!

Need GPS to get to location; however, it is a quaint little space with excellent service. I like the "green" initiative and would like to try the chef's table one day. Has outside sitting which would be nice for the Spring through Fall season. Food was tasty and well presented.

As always, fantastic food and service. While pricey, the amazing food and romantic atmosphere make it perfect for any special occasion with your spouse.

I went here for valentines day with my lady. That day they were offering a "Valentines day special menu". They stated over phone when I confirmed my reservation that I had the option of choosing from the regular menu if I did not want to get anything from the special menu. When I arrived we were only provided with the special menu, when asked if I could get the regular menu I was told that they only are providing the special menu. The menu was limited and the size of the main entree was somewhat small. The wait time for the food was a little long.

AIDA quality food is always AMAZING. Went for Valentine’s Day and the menu was absolutely delicious. Service was extremely slow, but our server did try to touch base frequently. On non-Holiday nights we typically don’t experience the slow service so this will not deter us from returning!

What a delightful "early" Valentine's Day experience.
The cozy & romantic ambiance of the main dining room
created the perfect setting for our celebration.

Meredith, our server , was in a word : Marvelous. She
was attentive, not intrusive. She knew the menu &
wines well and she was helpful with recommendations.

The food was scrumptious! We enjoyed the Chicken Pesto Flat Bread
as an appetizer and the Vegan Lasagna for our main course.
We enjoyed it so much, we made reservations to return with friends this weekend!

The food was excellent! Our server took away from
a wonderful experience.

The night before we dined at Iron Bridge and the server made the experience absolutely amazing. He was warm, knowledgeable and attentive, when needed. Never overbearing or rushed us so he could get on to other things.

The server at AIDA was the exact opposite. She showed zero personality, she knew nothing anything about the wine we selected and wasn’t attentive. I bought a bottle of white and asked for a chiller, it took her at least 10 minutes to return with it. The most annoying aspect was she regularly interrupted our conversation as she gave us a drive by, “your food is coming’soon,” “any dessert,” etc.. It felt as if we were at the Waffle House and she was trying to turn the table.

Great food and ambiance, far less than stellar service.

I had the shrimp diavalo and although I was more than full, I could not stop eating. It had a very rich, robust flavor. The calamari was excellent and the accompanying aoli had a nice spice level. My dinner companion loved the salmon.

The server was a little slow in recognizing our needs but was also very pleasant.

Joe and Mary had a tremendous way of making you feel like a member of the family. I mistakenly made a reservation for the wrong date (showed up at the right time, just two days early) and Joe found a table for us. The food and wine list was excellent. Price is subjective, but average cost for a glass of wine was about $18 and average cost for an entree is about $25. I had no idea there was a restaurant in that area, but am happy to had found it. We may have found a new favorite restaurant in Columbia!

The scallops were simply amazing. And the bed of sautéed spinach and creamy polenta were fabulous. Can’t wait to return!
