Aria Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
I liked the restaurant. There were not many vegetarian options. Another guest was looking for either chicken or beef but they didn't have anything on the menu. That said everyone was happy with the meal they got.
We went prior to a Leafs game so it was busy, but it was still a nice place.
Regular at this restaurant.
Was seated at table by kitchen door and bar. Very high traffic area. When I asked if we could move to another table was told they were all reserved for larger parties. A few minutes later another couple was seated by the window at a table that had been set for four!
Staff were incredibly rude.
There for dinner before a Raptors' game. Our friends were delayed but the servers ensured we all had great meals and a great experience, AND got us out in time for the game. Excellent menu, simple, enough variety to satisfy all types of eaters. Looking forward to returning.
We had a very sweet server who was helpful with the menu. In addition, other servers were also very attentive when filling up water, taking plates and etc. We had the reservation for 8:30 and left at 9:00, their service was quick but not in haste, the food was good but not plentiful. The rose cocktail was amazing! The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and elegant with dim lighting and spacious. The complimentary bread was dry, however and getting seated was a bit confusing because we were standing there a little confused waiting for the server. But the servers and everyone were very nice.
Very slow event though we booked a 5pm dinner to have plenty of time before the game. Waited 30 mins to get a server. Then another 15 to get the drinks. Furthermore they failed to bring our appetizer. Missed the first period. Their apologies simply blamed other people for their failings. Truly disappointing as we were entertaining people from out of town.
The location is incredibly convenient to the ACC. We went there for dinner before a concert. The server was pleasant but seemed busy so we waited a while for our order to be taken. The food came out pretty quickly though. We were a party of two and one of us had the gnocchi which was amazing, but I had the seafood spaghetti which had the potential to be good, however, it was served at room temperature, so all the grease settled to the bottom. I would give it a second chance just for the convenient location and ambiance.
Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and when we made the reservation we were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I typed in 25th Wedding Anniversary, thought someone at the restaurant would acknowledge it to us and they never did. Oh well 25 years married is no big deal....who knew?
That aside delicious meals, drinks and dessert would eat there again.
Excellent service and food, very nice décor and well situated next to Union Station and Air Canada centre. Also easy to find for out-of-town visitors. Enjoyed restaurant on my last visit to Toronto in December and very happy to return during my recent visit. Very busy evening, but with my reservation, I got a table very quickly and the service was excellent. Thank you.
For such a beautiful restaurant, the food quality and service should be improved. It wouldn't be hard to pay a little more attention to the details of the food including portion size, taste and training of staff. We chose the restaurant due to its proximity to the Acc, but would not go out of my way to return.
This is our second visit with a large group (14+) in as many months - both for birthdays. Our service the first time was 4/5 with a mild bit of attitude which is common is higher end downtown restaurants. But this visit the lady server was very blunt and dismissive for a very polite an quiet table. She refused to come back for a mains order, and told multiple people "no" she wouldn't come back to them as they weren't ready. The food was great, but Service dictates the feeling you leave with, and her attitude reflects the star level given. I'd like to note that the table still tipped above 15% as a courtesy to the amazing kitchen staff.
This restaurant is a beautiful place. Its conveniently located right outside of the Air Canada Centre. The seating was comfortable and the space was bright and tastefully decorated. Perfect place if you need to make a good impression on someone.
It is a little pricey, so wouldn't recommend for a casual outing as the feel of the place is more formal and higher end. The portions range from moderate to small. If you have a big appetite, you may want to order more than 1 thing.
over all good experience.
our waitress ( i want to say her name was Kelly, but i could be wrong ) was very polite, well put together and knowledgeable. She had good menu suggestions and always approached the table with a smile.
The patio is nice and the interior is gorgeous, but we were less than impressed with the service and food. The bread was hard and burnt black on the edges so we asked for fresh bread. The waiter was rude and argued with us before bringing us fresh bread (which was noticeable superior both in looks and taste to the first serving). The burata special was good but the mains were mediocre in taste and because of that, felt overpriced. I had high hopes based on Aria's looks but we all left feeling pretty disappointed. Will not return or recommend.
We found the Aria Restaurant very worth eating at. The service, ambiance and noise level was excellent. The food was very tasty. We recommend that you include the cost of tea or coffee into the Summerliscious price, by adding a few dollars to the original cost.
I made reservations almost 2 weeks in advance, once we arrived they told us to sit in the back among a group of ppl right where the door was as ppl coming and going + wait staff? In my reservation I specified birthday so would love a window seat private . Then they said oh you can have this table BUT pls be out by 8PM? FYI no mention of my wife`s birthday !! I felt rushed and was not happy from arrival to exit of this place and we will never be back.!!
Nice place however, really slow the evening I was here on business. Staff were stretched and or just did not seem to have a grip on what service we needed. Just felt like the guy just did not like serving us. All in all though not bad for a Tuesday. Thanks again
