Very accommodating for my wife’s birthday, they let me drop off balloons earlier in the day and had them set up nicely at our table when we showed up for our reservation. Our waitress was great and the food was to die for!

The restaurant ran out of their flounder special which is understandable but very disappointing nonetheless. We had a rather early reservation at 6:45 on a Saturday night and would expect better specials availability from a fine dining restaurant like Aldo's. The wine and the atmosphere were very pleasant and we will definitely give it another try some time.

We have been coming to Aldo's for almost 20 years. Our service is usually very good; however this time our service by our waiter was not very good at all. He was not very friendly and not very prompt with our service. I understand that it does get busy but I believe that was not the cause for our poor service.

Always a pure joy dining here. Warmly greeted and shown to our favorite seats. The wait staff are warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. We normally have a bottle of wine from their extensive, quality wine list. The food is to die for. We often get one of their specials and are always overjoyed. The shrimp Gorgonzola appetizer is heavenly.

Great visit. Super service and food. Brandon, our server, handled our group with professionalism and graciousness. Group was a challenge for any server and include two babies, one toddler and an infant, and two teenage girls. Food was excellent. Overall outstanding visit.

Despite the restaurant’s hours displayed on the front door that they were open, when we arrived 15 minutes early to our reservation, we were asked to leave by the manager while he conducted a meeting with the staff. After our dinner, we passed the same manager on our way out, he didn’t even acknowledge us or thank us for coming.

My experience was an overall enjoyable one. The food tasted good and the server (I believe his name was Michael) was very courteous and well mannered. He read through the specials with us and gave us recommendations on food and wine pairings. He wished me a happy birthday, as I was there to celebrate turning 24. The ambiance exceeded my expectations. Low lighting and piano playing set the tone for a romantic evening. It would’ve been nice to hear something other than the same four or five songs throughout the course of our evening, but it was still nice.

If I could rate service a 10 I would. Our server, Rob, was excellent. His timing couldn’t have been better. He was attentive without being overbearing.

A regular because it’s a quiet adult dining experience where good manners prevail and I’ve gotta love a place that reminds diners, on the front door, no hats are allowed.

Great service and friendly staff. I was looking forward to the veal parmesan, unfortunately it was way overcooked (hard to cut)! I will go back but let them know beforehand not to make the same mistake twice.

Aldo's has always been our favorite, special restaurant. We have been customers since opening. Always superb in every way. By far the BEST restaurant in Hampton Roads. So consistent. Always welcomed with a warm and gracious smile. Wait staff so pleasant and professional, and food second to none
Whenever we have guests, or family in town, Aldo's is our number one choice

Crab bisque was very tasty and filled with crab meat. Excellent flounder and crab entrée. Staff very attentive but not intrusive. Seating arrangements were as requested. Always one of our favorite dining venues.
