    I have seen this restaurant and the reviews because I wanted to treat my Wife to a wonderful date night. And I have to say the reviews did not lie and the experience was perfect. We will definitely be returning for more date nights.

    The food was amazing, and the ambience (light, decoration and silverwear) is outstanding. Still, the best was our waiter, Todd. He was super attentive and charming. 100% recommended.

    Everything was very good. Server was great. Menu needs more choices for dessert. Is the chef partial to bacon and root beer based items? By the look of the menu, sure seems like it

    We were warmly welcomed, and guided to our table. Our server was helpful and professional. She answered our questions and offered suggestions. She checked back in and made sure that we were all pleased with our experience, our service and our meal. We told her that we had tickets and she was sure that we were finished in plenty of time.

    Background guitar music was lovely. The Friday fish fry was lightly battered with unique potato pancakes. The atmosphere was lively but not too loud. Perfect for pre theater dining! Our waitress was very pleasant and available as needed.

    Server was amazing. They were knowledgeable, fun and did extra steps to make us feel appreciated. We selected the restaurant as we had heard about the pridtini special cocktail for the month. Unfortunately we were not able to order this as we we were told it wasn't served in the restaurant (only in the bar downstairs).

    The atmosphere was a bit too quiet for me. I could hear other tables conversation and wish the restaurant had a higher engergy vibe musically. It was also too bright, I prefer a dimmmer dining experience. The food was very good and the service was decent.

    I was disappointed in my Chicken Dumpling soup. I had been wanting to try it for months (I had ordered it once but I did not get to try it because of a mix up in the Kitchen) There was something off with the dumplings not edible. To the credit of the staff they did not charge me for the soup. My dining companions were very happy with their Chicken and the Walleye Fish Fry. Aria has become one of my favorite places to eat before of after the Theater.

    We enjoyed ARIA very much. It was hard to choose among the menu options; a lot of them sounded great. We loved what we chose, including the cocktails we had with the appetizers. The ambience is calm, uncluttered, and lovely. I appreciated that all the candles were lit, not just at occupied tables. Will go again!

    Have you ever had an experience so wonderful that you actually wanted to get married there. This place has captured my heart and my stomach. The waiter Todd was absolutely amazing and welcoming, I want him to officiate the wedding at the Aria. The piano man was mind blowingly talented. The chefs hands were obviously Gods hands. I now love pork chops! It melted!!! The most perfect cooked salmon. THE DRINKS!!! My fiancé had a lemon drop martini and I had one of their signature drinks, a sparkling cosmo. I would go back for the drinks alone. Decor. . .beautiful! I love this place and I will definitely be back! Hopefully I afford to get married here because it’s not cheap but it’s worth every dollar!!!

    Our server Bridget was great!! She made recommendations and didn’t rush us as all. Very helpful and super nice! Will def request her when we come back! Food was good as always, we LOVE the goat cheese marinara. The live music was an added bonus, great spot! It was a little warm in the restaurant but other than that, no complaints!

    The restaurant is beautiful and the staff very friendly. Also the portion size was more than adequate. However, the food was just okay. The chicken was very salty, could not eat pieces of it. I like salt but so much took away from the flavor of the chicken. It was sad because the prices were very high. I would have liked to be able to eat my meal. Sorry to say I will not be back.

    We had reservations for 5pm for two of us to eat early so we could see a performance. I asked for a larger table and was told that they were reserved for larger parties even though while I was there two people were seated at a table for 4. I had the hanger steak which was delicious except the blue cheese butter was as hard as a rock, and with the temperature of the meat there was not enough time for it to melt on to the meat. Our server was fine for the most part. She was rushing us out. She was clearing the table of everything including the napkins while I still had wine in my glass. I have dined there many times and have already enjoyed it. I am sure I will go back, but it wasn't the best experience I have had there.
