                                            The food is always delicious, like the gluten free pasta option, service is welcoming and excellent, and wines and drinks are top notch. Can’t recommend enough for small or large parties.

                                            We had a wonderful table away from other diners and were recognized as soon as we entered (1st time there). The service was very good, the menu good, the prices too high for what we got. There was a paltry amount of food for the artichoke appetizer. I got many more artichokes in my entree. The a charcuterie appetizer was very nice. I had whole branzino, which was filleted but still very bony. Despite my care, I semi swallowed a bone and had to push it down with bread crust. It was very tasty. The pasta dishes were small but adequate and the duck nice. We had the special bread pudding which was just OK. All in all way to expensive for an ok meal.

                                            Customer service was terrible. Very rude, you can clearly see they only care about tip. Also one of the waiter was taking away our dishes and stabbed a knife at us by accident and didn’t even apologize correctly.

                                            Delicious meal, great service, nice wine list. It was a little loud considering the restaurant was only half-full. But will definitely visit again.

                                            A very disappointing experience after many years of great dinners at Aurora. None of the usual staff were present, which perhaps contributed. The service was slow and extremely inattentive (multiple requests for water, half the table cleared between appetizer and entree and the rest left for 15 minutes), a hot appetizer arrived completely cold, the steak ordered medium rare arrived well done. The waitress unfortunately seemed uninterested in our table though only four others were full in the restaurant. The bus person had to ask her to clear plates etc. multiple times himself so he could place courses. I hope it was just an off night and not the end of an era.

                                            Horrible experience! Horrible service! One star Not for the food but for the service!!! I was at brunch with my two kids - 2 and 4 and my friend and her kid who is also 4. When we sat down we ordered the kids food right away- we let the server know that they were hungry so we would like to get there order in and to come back for ours. She said ok and then after a few mins she came back for our order. mine and my friends food came out first. So we mentioned to the server that we placed kids orders first as we wanted their food to come out first or at least with ours. We were very polite about it. At that point she got extremely rude and started yelling at my friend that she doesn’t control the kitchen and that we should have placed everyone’s order at the same time- she should have told us that when we placed our order. Anyway when the check came she had added 20% gratuity. She said since it’s 5 of us the restaurant charges. We looked on the menu and it says party of six or more. We brought this upto her and she said oh that’s for dinner and for brunch it’s different. She went on to say that she cannot control the computer and it auto charges. We asked to speak to the manager and so she topped off our day by saying that we are not welcome to Aurora with kids again. I’m fact we should think twice before taking our kids to any Soho establishments for brunch. Mind you - our kids were extremely well behaved - no loud noises, did not leave their seat, never made a peep. Did not even spill while eating their adult portion food that we ordered. I spoke with the manager and his exact words were the waitress lied to us regarding the gratuity. They do not automatically add for under party of 6. Also brought up our concern about her extremely uncalled comment regarding our kids who were perfectly well behaved

                                            We've been several times and it's always excellent. The service is great and the food never disappoints. We can't wait to go back.

                                            Food outstanding however the tables are on top of each other with very little room to sit without looking into the person at the next tables eyes. Service is rushed and people herded in and out like cattle and the noise level is atrocious. Don’t go here if you’re expecting to have a nice dinner with anyone at all. Made me wish for the first days of Covid which is unfortunate because this use to be a really good neighborhood spot. Not anymore! There are other restaurants nearby with similar quality food with better service.

                                            My daughter and i loved dining together at Aurora Soho. Our calamari/seafood appetizer was exceptional, filet mignon done to perfection and light kale salad exceptional. Great service too. We definitely will be back!

                                            Wine was great, beef cheeks were way too salty but still a decent dish. She had the Ragu, which left a lot to be desired but the burrata place was very good. Wouldn’t come again

                                            Perfect brunch. Good selection for vegetarians too. Nutella French toast, frittata, and the panino were all a hit. Ambience is chill. Service attentive. Thanks for an enjoyable time!

                                            Solid food and nice atmosphere as always - but very slow service due to understaffing - but waitress was nice. Host insisted on playing 1970's disco music - made no sense and did not fit the space or crowd at all. When asked to change - he said "We don't take requests" - he's out of touch as my guests separately asked about the music as well. Also - our drinks - bourbon old fashioned - we're so weak . . . even the color was off because they were all ice. And they ran out of the Super Tuscan wine choice!! Hoe can that be in this restaurant!

                                            It's a fab place to eat. Great food, friendly service. Celebrated our friend's 83rd birthday and they made it special. They brought dessert with a candle and everyone sang. Really sweet.

                                            NEVER AGAIN I was at Aurora a number of years ago and had a wonderful meal. To celebrate my dearest friend's 60th birthday I took her and her daughter there. I made sure they knew it was a special night. I let them know that due to the snow storm we'd be a little late. We arrived at 8:45pm. The service was ok until they put the check down after we finished our meal, not offering dessert and turning up the lights. The waiter looked annoyed. When we asked for coffee, he said they didn't have any. I said, you're an Italian restaurant and don't have coffee? Oh we have espresso... and cappuccino, and dessert (it was her bday for goodness sakes) Really? Then I asked, when someone turns the lights on like that what do you think its saying to the guests. Without batting an eye he says, we want you to leave. Double really? They continued to put the chairs on the table and let it be known that we were unwelcome. When we waited for our Uber the bartender let us know that we were able to wait inside (it was -18 degrees) Why thank you. The bill was over $300 But the hospitality was on par with a KFC in Penn Station. I was embarrassed. PS: If you go into the restaurant business, never make anyone feel that they are doing you a favor. In the city of NY there are thousands of Italian food places and this one has been permanently removed from my list. PPS: Aurora staff, I hope you read this.
