Absolutely loved Aria. We went for my fiancé's birthday, and we were both so impressed with the food quality and taste. Everything we had was delicious, and the service was fantastic. The only thing I didn't care for was how dim it was in the restaurant. A little hard to see menu typing.
We enjoyed Aria. Food and service were good, but short of outstanding. Scallops and braised short ribs were delicious. Lamb shank portions had more shank than lamb. Tables are too close together when patrons need to get in/out and the noise level is higher than we remember. These are some areas Aria needs to look into for a return visit.
Service was impeccable. I liked the food since they specialize in long cooked meat. They did not disappoint. My husband is not a fan of braised meat and had seafood which met his expectations but did not exceed them. The decor is very tasteful. But on Saturday the noise level was very high. This is a good place for groups, not for an intimate dinner for two - on a weekend.
Always wonderful. Service great. Wish it was a little quieter.
Chef did not respond well on tasting menu to feedback that we would prefer not to eat foi gras as it's unethical and poor judgment in their part. The 'substitution' was half assed.
My husband and I were dining at Aria for a special celebration....it was exceptional. My scallops were outstanding. I would definitely return.
Aria lived up to its reputation on Zagat and Trip Adviser. The food was exceptional, especially the lobster appetizer and the octopus tempura appetizer. Service was attentive and helpful and the ambiance, if not cozy, was pleasant and comfortable. My wife and I had been on the road for two weeks and this was one of our two best restaurant experiences. Strongly recommended.
A good place but expensive for what you get and I came away a bit disappointed. I love my Manhattan to start the evening and the bartender was professional and pleasant. But the drink was $19.50 (that is not a typo) plus tax and tip and it was smaller than most cocktails nowadays. Most wines by the glass were in the $16-18 range, I tried 3, and never found one that went "wow". My halibut was truly excellent, the mixed olive starter just OK, the chickpea fritter disappointing.
Service was professional - a little "intense" at times. Our requested 4-top table for the 2 of us was lovely. The room is a bit odd in decor: big curtained windows on one side, a dramatic contemporary chandelier, but all the walls were painted a dark grey except for one wall which is gray but broken up by mirrors. It is an odd effect.
It was a wonderful evening but the noise level was too much. It seems you had two large groups in the center and their conversations could be overpowering. Most of the time I could not hear my husband...next time I would definitely ask for a booth on the entrance level.
Mind-bending food-the hamachi was stunning!!! Scallops to die for. Extraordinary cocktails-amazing service. Perfect evening!!!
