We had reservations for 2 people and had requested a booth. When we arrived at 5:15 there were only 3 other parties in the restaurant. All booths were empty. We requested a booth that was set for 2 and was told that all guests had pre-specified seating according to the restaurant floor plan and that booths were reserved for 4 or more. We were told that it was going to be a very busy night and we shouldn't expect a stellar experience. We were then seated right next to another couple instead of a few tables away. When we requested a different table for 2, we were told it wasn't possible, even though there were numerous open tables. Then we were approached by Jennifer to take our order. When she stepped away, a different person began taking care of us. When we asked for Jennifer, there was a bit of a discussion at the hostess stand, then she was sent to wait on us. The ONLY good part of the evening was Jennifer and her service. My wife ordered the paella and about 4 bites in, she discovered a hair in the dish. At the same time, 2 different couples came in and each couple were seated in a booth. When I went to the hostess stand to ask why we couldn't have a booth, I was told "that's just the way it is". Our food came out quickly and we couldn't enjoy our wine before dinner. We did not say anything about the hair in my wife's dish because we just wanted to pay and leave. We are locals and have been to Arya several times and enjoyed it which is why we selected it for Valentines Day. It was a very unpleasant experience and we will not be back. The day before we went I recommended Arya to a friend, and today I told her to not bother going. I'll be telling others the same thing.

They didn’t have the wine I selected, my date’s drink was too strong, the dip for the bread was too spicy for my date, the shrimp on the seafood tower was raw, my date’s lamb chops were too salty to eat and when they brought out a new order they were under cooked. The chocolate cake was pretty good but the rosewater desert wasn’t. I spent $300 and will not be returning, I’ve had far better experiences at places for 1/3 of the price.

The food was over priced for what you get. You have to pay extra for each side. The restaurant was pretty empty and it took 45 minutes for us to get our food.

We love Arya! The service and food are wonderful! This is a real gem in downtown Redwood City. Our favorite waitress is Jenny, but we have always had great service.

Very nice evening. Pleasant service. A little short on there wine supply (tried 4 wines before they had what I ordered). Good food and environment!

Arya stretches beyond its Persian roots to deliver a comprehensive steakhouse menu in a sedate, luxe setting. We came for a mom’s night out dinner, and were treated very well by all of the front of house staff. My only feedback/advice is don’t come for the cocktails. They do not offer a full bar, only sake-based cocktails. The wine list, however, is robust and has a good range of affordable, quality wines. A lovely meal.

It was my first time visiting and they won me over completely. They are now my #1 pick for steak or kabobs in the area, you cannot go wrong. I think I may have to eat here weekly.

We came in thinking Arya was a traditional steakhouse. They've recently changed their menu to be more of a Persian steakhouse. We ordered food from the Persian style of choice. The food was not quite as good as Dish Dash in Sunnyvale.
