What an awesome experience! We've never been to this lovely restaurant before-- we're visiting from Windsor. From the moment we walked in the service was outstanding. The venue itself is a beautiful, restored home. The host, as well as the waiters, were supremely professional, friendly, and well informed, and attentive.

I ordered the seared halibut, and my husband ordered the scallops and veal. Both meals were served piping hot, perfectly prepared, and in generous portions. Best meal we've enjoyed in a long time, and we dine out often, especially my husband who travels weekly for business. We enjoyed a lovely glass of wine with our meal, ordered from an extensive wine list.
We were too full for dessert however the desserts looked amazing. We will make a point to return the next time we are in the area! Would highly recommend.

Wonderful menu complimented by daily chef specials. Food was all expertly prepared and beautifully plated. The complimentary bread was wonderful but it would have been nice if it was served with a herbed butter.

The environment was very nice and our waiter did attend to our needs. The soup was delicious. We ordered the steak and shrimp special. There was one grilled shrimp on a large Sirloin. The meat was cooked perfectly but it was so bland. It had no taste to it whatsoever. I would like to return to try the seafood.

Loved the baked brie. Good fig and arugula salad; could have benefitted from an additional crunchy green (maybe chard) and candied walnuts. Unforgettable steak taste and preparation. Seasoning on chicken supreme was too light, but mushroom and wild rice saved the day. Unobtrusive yet attentive wait staff. Lighting and noise levels helped create positive atmosphere.

We returnd to this location for a revisit on our 30th Anniversary. We had our wedding reception at this location when it was known by a different name. I wish we hadn't waited so long!
The food was very good (Veal and scallops for me - King Crab for her) done to perfection!
Service was good and the desert was complementary (Creme Brulet). Well worth the cost and it was fun to relive the event.

Really enjoyed the food and the service was wonderful. I would go back.

The only thing was the waiter brought the bill without asking. Right after we ate.

A little off putting but otherwise and wonderful experience at a beautiful restaurant.

It was our first time at Aria, I looked at it many times and didn't go but our cousins came out from England and we decided to give it a try. The food was excellent everyone was impressed. The service was superb, heated plates and our waitress waited until we had all finished (a pet peeve of mine when the plates are cleared before everyone has finished eating). Our waitress Meya was a delight we all loved her. She was funny without being intrusive and quite made our evening. Well done Aria we will be back.

Took my elderly parents and in-law here for an early dinner on Saturday. Service was gracious and professional. Food well cooked and nicely presented. The old house was charming, a welcome change from the chain restaurants and Indian buffets that seem to be the main dining options in Brampton. We were celebrating a birthday and the complementary slice of carrot cake at the end of the meal was a nice touch. I'd certainly return in the future.

First time to this Bistro. Great food and great service. A family of 3 celebrated my birthday. We had ordered Crab cakes as our appetizer and were amazingly yummy. We had ordered sea scallops (DELICIOUS), beef penne(very tasty) and Jail Island Salmon (very fresh). We enjoyed our food very much. The quality and quatity of the food are equally perfect. A little bit pricy but worth for any special occasions. Highly recommend this Bistro. Thank you to Michael (the owner) and their staff's warmest welcome.

Since it was going to be our last luncheon meeting of 2014, thought we would revisit Aria.
The Bar was set pretty high, from our initial visit. However, Aria's Staff rose to the challenge.

The entire restaurant was tastefully decked out with Christmas decor and the crackling fireplace made it even cozier.

From the warm welcome at the main entrance, to the fond farewell; truly a memorable dining experience.

Our Host (Ari Y) was very knowledgeable about Wines and 'Food Pairings'.
He paid adequate attention to us, without intruding on our special occasion.

The Owner (Michael) stopped by the table to extend his appreciation of our business......Nice touch.

We will definitely return to this Venue, as often as we can.

It was the first time that my wife and I had dined at this restaurant since the change of ownership and we were very impressed by the overall experience.

We felt that our food was prepared to perfection and well priced for the quality received. Minor preference changes to our food combinations did not present a problem and the staff was very accommodating. The service in general was very timely and sensitive to our dining pace while respecting our privacy.

The atmosphere in this restaurant is outstanding with many of the original home's character features preserved, a welcome alternative to the standard ambience of most of our eating establishments these days.

We are looking forward to sharing our next visit with family and friends.

The service was fantastic, our waitress was friendly and attentative, as well as the support staff. My fiance had the filet mignon and I the crusted halibut on risotto. The steak was done perfectly and very tender, the halibut was fantastic, perfectly cooked. The risotto could have been done a tad more, but the flavour was excellent. Portions were perfect. I highly recommend the vanilla ice cream.
I would recommend this for any special occasion.

My husband and I we're looking for a new place to go for date night, and found Aria (as recommended by a friend). Nice spot - fits the standard format for nice restaurant/old house. Overall - we had a really nice night, and a good table by the fire (we had to ask for it...they were going to seat us in a less ideal spot. Highlights - best bread ever, food was good, additional staff was nice, romantic enough. Lowlights - main server was abrupt and not knowledgable, couldn't get more butter for that delish bread, weird table in the middle of the room that should be off to the side (used for water pitcher, spare cutlery, etc - constant invasion of our space - buffet against the wall makes more sense) and desserts had a freezer/crystallization to them. We let owner know about the odd service and he sent over after dinner drinks. I would go back - but would ask for a different server up front.

Before taking my girlfriend I saw pictures of what the inside of Aria looked like and they are truly being modest because it doesn't capture even a fraction of it's beauty.

This historic home turned cute and romantic restaurant is the perfect spot to take someone who you're thinking of proposing to, celebrating an anniversary with or want to show how much you appreciate them.

The service was impeccable. Even though My girlfriend and I got full off of their delicious calamari unfortunately had to get our main courses to go, the staff at Aria were very accommodating. They always wanted to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and were very eager to help in any way they could to make our experience that much better.

Thank you Aria for your fantastic service and food, now I know where I want to propose to her.

It was a chilly Fall Day, when we stumbled upon this 'Old House'.
The Restaurant had just been decorated for Christmas and there was a crackling fire going.

The Menu is different and the Food was fantastic.
Yuri, our Waiter was excellent and his recommendation of Wine Pairing with Menu Items was spot on.

We will be back and will take even longer to enjoy lunch.

Aria is a lovely place. Food is good, but not outstanding. Way overpriced. That's the main reason we only dine there on special occasions. If he would drop his entree prices he would be busier. $49 for a filet! The best steak houses don't charge that much.

The purpose of our visit was an evening out with our two University students who we had just moved to Brampton. Our meal at Aria was exquisite, but because of the room's acoustics (hardwood floors), we had difficulty holding a conversation - partially due to a boisterous table nearby. It was quiet for a Friday so I can't imagine what the noise level would be like if it had been busy. That said, the service was excellent, the meal - superb (a delicious beet carpaccio to start, and the rack of lamb just melted in my mouth); a lovely menu & wine list; all surrounded by understated elegance. We will return on our next trip to Brampton. Others in our party had the scallops (loved!), the seafood penne (liked), chicken supreme, & fish & chips.

It was a great evening to enjoy Aria's new patio. It's a lovely space but unfortunately close to a busy street, hence the noise. Our server was very young but adequate (we had to ask about specials & she didn't know much about the wine). The food was very good but not exceptional. We started with the caprese salad , the mozarella was good but the basil was hardly there & since it is tomato season I was expecting juicy, flavourful tomatoes & they were not at all. I had the catfish. The dirty rice was disappointing. The salsa gave the fish some much needed flavour & moisture. My husband had the pasta special. He enjoyed it. We really liked the house white wine and the comfortable new patio. For the price point, the servings are small.
