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!!!
Th food and wait staff were excellent and very accommodating. I would highly recommend.
Birthday celebration! Food was fine as always. Service outstanding. Noise level was deafening. The six of us could not even hear across the table. I will think again before taking friends there for a special occasion.
Amazing date night! Excellent food, drink and my waiter( I don't remember the name but was an Asian looking man) was awesome!!!!
From start to finish everything was excellent! I took my mother to Aria for her birthday and the experience was over and above any expectations we had. The food was excellent and our waiter, very knowledgeable.
The food was really delicious and unique. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable. It's expensive but worth it.
Had not dined at ARIA in several years. Entryway is not welcoming. Steak and duck were delicious but accompaniments were just okay. Good wine list and service. Noise level was definitively not what we expect from a fine dining establishment. Will not likely return because of noise level.
The food was amazing. Our waiter Kim was outstanding and friendly. Will be back next time we're in Atlanta.
Another wonderful evening at Aria, celebrating our anniversary. We have marked this occasion here for most of our 36 years. Met the chef, who was out greeting customers, and were able to convey to him how special his food has always been. Great service, wonderful meal. Thanks so much.....
Wonderful atmosphere, outstanding food and service. Perect for a special occasion.
The lighting was nice and low. Romantic. The food was awesome. Every one around us had something different and they loved theirs.
My husband and I had only done one other tasting menu with wine pairings and wanted to try Aria for our anniversary. The service was impeccable and the tasting menu couldn't have been better. The wine pairings, too, were wonderful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of both the food and the wines. One other note - Aria is a little less formal than we expected, which was also really nice.
Fabulous as usual!
It was our wedding anniversary and Aria did not disappoint, great dining experience as usual. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Everything about our visit to Aria was outstanding - the valet service, the accommodating staff, the friendly and knowledgeable service - both food and wine - the comfortable and attractive setting and, of course, the excellent food and wine. Everyone in our group found it to be exceptional and would definitely recommend the restaurant. The menu has plenty of range to satisfy just about anyone - for food and wine. The food was creative and perfectly prepared and the pace of the evening was just right. Can't wait to go back.
What a great evening! The tasting menu was fantastic
Had a great dinner celebrating two sisters' birthdays. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant was a little noisy but there were a few larger groups in the restaurant and this was during prime dinner time on a Saturday evening. We will be back next time we're in Atlanta!
ARIA is a fabulous restaurant. We will definitely return again and again!
Had a great anniversary dinner! Food was fresh and delicious! Will definitely go nack there again!
Found service excellent our waiter very attentive. Excellent wine choices with outstanding Entre options. Something for everyone. Not for children thank God.
This restaurant just gets better and better. It is a consistent favorite since it opened 16 years ago. The wine list is the best, most varied list in the city. Just an incredible experience all the way around.
Top notch restaurant. I would recommend for a nice date.
Fantastic as always. Exceptional food and service. Cozy atmosphere.
We were greeted by name ( a bit mangled,but ...), immediately escorted to an obviously saved table in the area we had requested. Mother's Day and it was packed and noisy..
Service attentive. The food was quite nice, but I don't suppose you can miss with a double order of foie gras for me and lobster for my wife. A very pleasant evening.
The food & service as usual was outstanding.
My party noted the menu was not the standard Mothers Day fare & they thoroughly enjoyed having multiple options
I had an745 reservation and did not get my entree until 951. I left the restaurant at 11. No apology or explanation given.
Eevr course was excellent. The kitchen was spot on!
Overall service was great with a couple of small lapses.
Aria is a wonderful experience. The food and the service were excellent. Get a dinner reservation before 7:15 pm to avoid the noise.
We celebrated a birthday at ARIA. ARIA did not disappoint. From the "Happy Birthday" greeting at the front door, ALL was good! We were warmly greeted at our table by our favorite, Kim. Champagne was soon delivered along with some warm bread. The Broccoli and Leek Soup was very flavorable . Both of us ordered the Halibut. Halibut is a favorite of ours and it did not disappoint. The meal ended with the Lemon Pound Cake. Oh my goodness, I think I will come back soon just to get this again. So light and so, so good! We were very pleased with our decision to celebrate at ARIA. It was a most enjoyable evening.
Went for my boyfriends birthday. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Exceeded all of my expectations!
As usual this restaurant always delivers exquisite food and great service.
