    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.

    We never got our food. Arrive at 5:30 for the toronto maple leaf game. By 7:15 our food still did not arrive. We were told because we didn’t order pasta it was taking longer than usual. Ridiculous. Never again

    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.

    I don’t write reviews very often. Aria is an exception. Outstanding service and exceptional food. The ambience is wonderful with the high ceilings, and calm atmosphere. Very knowledgeable staff, who were genuinely friendly and helpful. The wine list is excellent and not overwhelming. Overall, one of the very best restaurants in the city. Well worth a visit.

    Server was not educated on the menu! He was unable to answer any questions on the menu items. Server was not very personable, seemed a little spaced out. Side item with entree was COLD! Red snapper was over cooked, and poorly presented. Would NOT recommend this place at all, nor would I every go back.

    Great food as usual. Busy as expected on a Leaf's game night. We threw them a curve ball to try and add a 5th spot last second, but the were fully booked and spacing is tight there. They couldn't accommodate as they were fully booked and the space there is fairly small. Otherwise great food experience. Just be prepared for the prices.

    Aria is beautiful. Most of the food we ate was delicious. The portions are small - especially considering the pricing. It was not busy the evening we were there so we felt like we were rushed out at the end of the evening - like they wanted to close. I imagine it is extremely busy on game nights and much quieter otherwise as it is right next to the Scotiabank Arena. I'm glad we tried it.

    Wait staff knew we were attending Hockey game however food not delivered until 20 minutes before game. Rushed to eat and pay to get to game on time. Ordered the duck, well presented, garnished well, liked potato's & greens, The duck not enjoyable, very fat and poor flavor. Its a good restaurant, I would return, but this experience was not that great.

    Enjoyed a girl’s night out with my dearest friend of more that 25 years. She was my matron of honour and it was her birthday! So tonight was special. That night also included us attending our favourite comedian’s show, so we had to find the perfect place to kick off our evening. We were seated promptly and we’re attended to with smiles and warm enthusiasm for our celebration. The cocktails we selected were perfect to toast with. our 2 appetizers were enough for us to share and our meal was amazing, we both selected the Mushroom Ravioli. I would not hesitate to revisit or recommend Aria to all my friends. Thank you Aria for truly making our night a memorable one

    The food was good although the risotto that comes with the Osso Bucco was very bland and had no flavor. Service was rushed and we were forced to order our mains at the same time as our appetizers. Cocktails took way too long to come. Tagliatelle was delicious and so were gnocchi. The Burrato was outstanding as was the Fritto appetizer. Wait staff were very friendly considering they have back of house rules to follow. Would definitely go back but only if we were going to an event at ScotiaBank Arena. Definitely not a place to go if you want to relax and take your time dining.

    They completely forgot to bring one of the four meals. They attempted to rush to produce a meal after 15 minutes of waiting which was undercooked. We ended up missing the 1st quarter of the basketball game due to the mishap. We never received an apology and was still charged for the uncooked meal that was not edible. Very disappointed experience.
