The food was really good and service was great. We even danced to the tunes along with the belly dancer. Overall, it was an amazing experience.

We went to Arya on a Friday night, we had a table for 4. The food was good (the meat koobideh was hard to chew). Our server Carlos was fast and friendly. We loved the live music, the belly dancer and the disco lights. We totally had an awesome time

Service was fine. I ordered Baghali Polo with Joojeh. The herbs didn't taste fresh. I wonder if dry herbs are being used which is not a good sign. Dishes lacked flavor and salt. Some of the grilled tomatoes were small and tasteless.

We came on Saturday night before the show and were able to order from the regular menu. My wife had a flavored rice dish with a beef kabob, I had the lamb chops. Both meals were very good and more than we could finish. We both had dessert and drinks. The bill came to just about the same as the prix fixe dinner.
By the way I would like to give a shoutout to Carlos who was the epitome of a professional waiter. Courteous, attentive but not hovering, and helpful in menu suggestions and answers.

The service was very efficient and sensitive to my allergy needs. They
went beyond my expectations when adapting my dishes. We had a quiet and
very pleasant lunch with a helpful waiter.

You need a reservation for weekends night for sure. Anytime we have a birthday or taking friends out to dinner, we come to this restaurant even though it's 45 minutes away from my house. It's worth it.

Manager was super accommodating with our few extra requests, service from Carlos was outstanding, and the food/drinks were all loved by my lady and her friends. Will definitely be coming back when we have more time.

Note to future guests: if you book your reservation for the fixed menu / entertainment Saturday, don’t make the mistake I made of making plans an hour and a half after dinner. Though that’s usually enough time to eat/enjoy/converse, I wish i would have allowed us more time to partake in the singing/dancing festivities!

We went there in a group of 4 to have diner before a Persian event . We ordered soltani, barg and salmon kabab. and appetizers. The food was very average but the price is really high for what you get comparing to other Persian restaurants in the area.
The food was *not good* the barg kabobs were overcooked and rubbery . The appetizers was not good, and bread was cold. In addition we asked for some onion but after 15 minutes the server brought us a little onion which was frozen.I was completely disappointed .

I made a reservation with opentable for indoor seating. Yet they made me seat outdoors. Upon request to seat indoor they tell me that indoor all tables are reserved. When I tell them that I did reserved for indoor the manager gives me long speech and tells that I need to add special notes while reserving that I need indoor table. He was trying to explain me how opentable app works. This was pretty embarrassing.

Food: Late Late Late ... we ordered a salad and kabob combo. It took them 1.15 hr to service the food. Chicken kabob was tastelesss and chewy. Not sure on the freshness of meet.

Drink: would not recommend taking cocktails. We had mai tai , long island razzberitinni.. I had better cocktails with cbeaper price.

Summary : Not recoomended for date.

I have been to Arya several times for lunch and the food has been great.
We went for dinner for the first time and the quality & taste of the food was unsatisfactory for all 4 dishes we ordered.

We attended on a Saturday evening for food and a show with out of town company and was extremely disappointed. We've been to this restaurant many times over the last several years and was happy with everything, but never been for the Saturday show. We will not be attending the Saturday show again. The web site should indicate that there is a special menu for the Saturday evening. We looked at the website and our out of town company was excited about ordering steak. Steak was not part of the Saturday only menu.
The view of the belly dancer did not exist for most of the restaurant. Only if you were at a table right next to the floor stage. She should of been on an elevated stage.
Our waiter was terrible and we informed the management of that, then got our checks thrown on the table!

Great food and drinks. The waiter was awesome. The person who brought the chutney said he'll bring the bread to go with the chutney but never showed up again. Someone else handled the bread. Grilled food with just plain rice is a little dry. Could use some tzatziki/yogurt type of sauces to go on the side.

We have been many times to Arya and always enjoy it. It's a good place to take visitors because of the varied menu. Everyone can find something to suit their palate. It's a comfortable restaurant with good food and service.
