Octopus was delicious
Kale salad was a very small portion
Pasta dish was delicious as was the Branzino
Very nice place, the outside area is so beautiful! Came for my birthday, and we all had such a great time! Have to come back for brunch!
House packed (bravo!), very fast and courteous service, and the usual great fare! The Cacio e Pepe was outstanding, and so was the steak!
Food was great. Dress up because it’s nice. Only thing I disliked was the limited time at table. Other than that everything was great
Love ambience , vibe , great food and service
We were there on a Saturday night and the service was slow. The noise level made talking a bit strenuous. But the food was good and the atmosphere was energetic.
Best service, best food, beautiful restaurant. Loved it!
Food was wonderful. Tasty, nice flavors, not too salty, not too oily. Wine was great also.
Absolutely terrible service from all parties we encountered. Food is decent but not spectacular considering the other amazing italian options that NY has to offer.
To start we had an Aroura Manhattan which was delicious. the beet salad was enjoyable and the Hamachi special was tasty.
We were disappointed with a few things. The restaurant was more crowded than the covid guide lines, which was a big problem. The pappardelle bolognese, a menu classic, very good. It was hot and remained so through dining. The night's pasta special, recommended by the waiter, Straw and Hay was not good. It was warm not hot, and gummy, as if it was waiting for a long time to be served. We passed on dessert, and left as soon as the check was paid.
Do not book a reservation while they are charging shifts. The kitchen closes at 3:30 and we had 15 minutes to put our orders in. So rushed!
Always a pleasure. The ambience adds so much to the excellent food and attentive and charming service.
One of the best al fresco brunches in W'Burg. Great!
Aura is consistently great. The food, service, and ambiance are excellent.
It is our favorite, 1st choice, restaurant in Williamsburg.
My favorite romantic dinner spot. I have been here plenty times over the years. My husband and I came here to celebrate both of our birthdays. Great service and food as usual. This place is a gem.
It was a lovely place and the food was very good!
Excellent. Manages to continue to excel, even during a pandemic...!
Amazing service and great food
Great set up on the patio 👍🏼
Very good vibe and food. Would definitely go back and recommend.
Literally a perfect place. The food is unreal. Everyone there is BEAUTIFUL and so nice. Would give it all the stars in the sky if I could. Fav restaurant in Brooklyn.
Food was great! Service was fast (a little too fast, didn’t even give us time to chat), but the server forgot two things we ordered so we canceled it. But everything else was great!
We just had our wedding reception dinner here and they knocked it out of the park! Amazing food and drinks. The entire staff was very attentive and kind, even though we likely raised the decibel level higher than they liked. Highly recommend for sitting and having a beer in the outdoor area, or hosting a big event. Thanks again.
Subpar dining spot with ok food, but nothing that stands out
This place is the perfect place for a date night!
Great!!!! I recommend
Nice location for a dinner date, the appetizers were delicious
Always an exceptional meal and great service at Aurora - never disappoints!
The restaurant was insanely noisy, and did not appear to be respecting distancing guidelines. It appeared to be at 100% capacity and overflowing into the street.
I would avoid this restaurant like a plague on the weekend.
Can't recommend it at all. Indoor dining went way over the allowed 50% capacity, not to mention the outdoor space which was super crowded. The tables were ridiculously small and it was impossible to sit there comfortably. The music was super loud, we couldn't keep up a conversation as we couldn't hear each other. Out waiter was absolutely terrible: he spilled my cocktail all over the place, to the floor and onto the table then spilled the fries as well to my husbands lap an on the floor--it hasn't even crossed his mind to replace the fries with a new one given that the 1/3 of it ended on the floor. The food is mediocre, the burger patty was chewy. The cocktail was awful: it should've been a mix of different drinks (hence the name and according to what was on the menu) but I only could taste the very strong, cheap booze. A waste of money, not a pleasant memory whatsoever.
I went here for sisters day with my two sisters and I. The servers and manager were so polite, understanding and accommodating. The menu pricing was moderate. Brunch options we're very healthy.. Air quality amazing. Definitely wheelchair accessibility on warm backyard and front yard eating availability. I would definitely recommend this place.
Smell, terrible smell in outdoor dining area
beautiful outdoor garden. such good food. will go again!
We loved how friendly and accommodating the staff were. We had a reservation but had to wait an additional 15 minutes because they were so busy. Even through the chaos the host was courteous. The wait staff kept checking on us. We loved it
Great place! Lots of options for my friends and me (we all have very different palates). The only hiccup was that one of my friends is gluten-free, so there weren't many options for her unless she omitted the bread on some meals. Otherwise, the service was lovely, a great location for sitting outside on a beautiful day!
Food was delicious, drinks were GREAT. Service was amazing! Wish I knew the name of the server for our table so I could give a shout-out. He was great. Will definitely be coming back. Great was to spend a Friday night with friends.
Seating for the reservation was outside, in an enclosed space, was quite cold, but this was not stated anywhere. And outdoor seating was at 100% capacity, my shoulder was less than a foot to the person next to me. Seating was suppose to be at 35% going to 50% later in the week. Even after covid I likely won’t go back. Luckily once our meal order was placed it came quickly. We left immediately after eating.
The food is simply divine. Anything you choose from the menu will please you, you can be sure of that. And drinks are great too!
amazing food, great ambiance! definitely will be going back
I absolutely love coming here, the food is DELICIOUS, service is great, and the ambiance is perfect! The music is also always perfect
