Terribly overpriced and inadequate quality. They did not advertise price-fixed menu as only meal option on website. Separate charge for dessert was ridiculous given price of $46/person for 2 small appetizers and smallish main dish.

We were thrilled to be seated at the Chef's table, and were escorted in and seated and greeted by Joe, the wonderful owner and Boris, then greeted by Chef Corey Laub, the talented new Executive Chef. We had huge blood orange Ma ..... then tried various 1st and 2nd courses, like the Beef Tartare, the Prosciutto and Fig Flatbread, and the Smoked Gouda and Swiss Chard Macaroni. OMG! Elizabeth loved her Smoked Oyster Chowder. Then, on to entrees of Duck with Mole Sauce, Crabcake , and Seafood Pasta. The house made Tiramisu and Chocolate cake ended of meal, perfectly

Boris was awesome. Always feel like we're his only customers, even when dining room is full. Food was delicious. My guest had the special soft shell crab BLT, and she said it was remarkable. My pasta primavera with salmon was a perfect lunch on a beautiful Spring day.

Nice place, server seemed a bit rushed. Would have liked more on the drink menu, I.e. cocktails and beer. Of course it is called a wine bar.

Food mediocre. Eggplant parmigana soggy. Slices of provolone thrown in top and melted. Ordered because it looked appealing at a table over. Before receiving my meal the gentleman next to me asked for salt. Completely agreed upon tasting mine, needed more flavor. Linguini on the side was heavily coated with tomato paste, not a light marinara.
Scallops were average. Greens were thrown in plate, not very appealing. Would return for wine.

Back again to enjoy their Happy Hour and have a great meal paired with some great wines! Always love their Crispy Brussels Sprouts. Wings were prepared differently, good but more sauce vs the drier version with the flavor cooked into the actual wing. The AIDA meatballs still good too. I also enjoyed 2 new wines on the list that I never had here before. Service was very good too!

New to Aida. Our waitress was super great. A wonderful smile and outstanding service. I noticed the portions were very small considering the prices. I ordered the fish special, Mahi Mahi. It was prepared well and very tasty--very small portions, you will have room for dessert. I think they do a very good job in food preparation and presentation. The wine was very nice, we had by the glass a Cab and a Malbec. Overall, I would say the whole experience was 4.5 stars, I'd go again.

We had a FRIENDLY’s trip in mind so went for light fare and a spot of wine. The apps we ordered were delicious, and the wine on point. It was a quiet night, but service was still very attentive. We’re planning on making a trip for a real (big) meal — the menu looks like they take chances, which is a good thing.

Excited to be back at Aida Wine Bar! Tried their bar special burger for the first time. Of course, I had to order their Crispy Fried Brussels Sprouts as a side as I love them. Very crowded today! When my burger finally came, despite ordering it as medium, it was pretty much rare. So hungry I ate it anyway and it was good. Just preferred it a little more cooked. Always great wine selection!

My husband and I were looking for a place where we could go and have a nice conversation and good food. We had an amazing experience here. Our server Meredith was phenomenal she was completely on top of our needs. I drink a lot of water and she never once let my cup get close to empty. Little things like that make an experience special. To top off our night we got a tour from the owner. Learning about the wines and the food there was so fascinating. I can guarantee my husband and I will be back very soon!
