    Aria is a nice looking restaurant. It has lots of windows and we had to change our table three times so as not to have the sun burning our eyes while eating. We ordered the Panz appetizer to share thinking it was a type of bruschetta with peaches and walnuts, but it was basically a salad whose major ingredient was hard croutons. The tagliatelle with seafood was fine. The panna cotta was good, but so tiny for the price. We had a good waiter but he was way overworked with too many tables to cover. Overall, it was nothing special and I wouldn’t return.

    I took my girlfriend here recently and we ordered the 52oz porterhouse steak with asparagus and potatoes as our sides. Every bite was amazing, the meat was done amazingly and perfectly. Flavours were amazing. Perfectly salted and really nice place to be in. The service was exactly what we wanted and it was well worth the money. Should I become rich one day I will eat here once a month but until then I will eat here in my happy memories! Thank you so much for amazing food!

    Good food and service but WAY overpriced for what you get. When there’s a game on it’s packed because it’s close, but on a regular night it’s empty which must tell you something. Menu was limited and both my daughter and I struggled to find something we wanted to eat. Next time I’m down in that area I will choose somewhere else.

    This restaurant is incredibly overpriced. The food is very average— not terrible but not great either. The portions are tiny. We ordered two different appetizers- both very bland and flavourless. The ravioli was good but the portion was tiny. The fish entree, at $50, was bland and also very small. Chocolate dessert was good. Our waiter was efficient but extremely unfriendly- no warmth whatsoever, and the restaurant was mostly empty on a Friday evening, which says a lot. Drinks were average. Spend your money elsewhere. This restaurant has nothing going for it.

    Made the mistake of making our anniversary dinner on the same night as game 7……needless to say after arriving a bit late due to traffic we were told that they were closing at 9:00 due to the game …..don’t you think you could call or text I asked …..oh, we did they say….then, the main course literally came 20 seconds after I put my fork down from my appetizer…..really….ur that rushed….how can I enjoy a special event dinner while people in jeans and hoodies are jumping up and down in front of me outside the glass….(yes, I did special request a quiet table so that I could enjoy a nice bottle of wine and conversation with my wife….not happening….then while I’m trying to keep positive….I got this guy who called himself a manager moving tables around me out of the dining area while I gotta hear the table legs screeching across the floo with his underwear sticking out like some young kid with no belt…….really….u have bottles of wine in excess of thousand of dollars and I gotta watch a guy with his shirt untucked and a very colourful pair of underwear sticking out while I’m trying to enjoy my $70.00 steak……REALLY…..this guy couldn’t manage his outfit that evening let alone a restaurant…where is the customer service…..where’s the ambiance….at these prices customers deserve much better…..DO NOT GO TO ARIA…..I’ve had better service at Swiss Chalet for crying out loud……and if the owners are reading this…..call me…I’ve owned my own restaurant business for over 20 years and finally retired early, but I would definitely come out of retirement to show you how a manger needs to act and deal with customers…..and if that schmuck is one of your brother in laws….well, sorry for you!!!!! Call me and I’ll show you a first class maître d cuz your brother in law stinks and should become an Uber driver instead…..NO CLASS

    Beautiful interior. Thomas our server was so passionate and educated on the food, wine and making suggestions. I dine out regularly and the service was by far the best I have received since prior to COVID. Food was delish, burrata was perfect and our steak cooked to perfection. Nothing i would change, although it was expensive, it was well worth it for this occasion.

    Poor service. I think our order got dropped somehow. We had 5:30 reservations for a 7:30 concert and main course didn't arrive until after 7....an hour after ordering. When it was finally served, we were forgotten...no offers of parmesan or pepper for our pastas and no offers of water. We were, at least, comped for a couple of courses. Disappointed.
