    It was extremely windy and very cold. We were excited to get drinks and appetizers but they didn’t have any of the brisket sliders or beef tip lolipops. It was 6pm on a Saturday night. We thought all the menu items would be available. We got chicken satay and it was decent. Overall good experience.

    Aura is absolutely a beautiful location..comfortable seating, drinks are good, food is ok (don't go hungry) lol staff is amazing and friendly! But what I didn't know is that is only a 2hr limitation for your reservation... so you have to eat, drink, and go! I will recommend to everyone!

    Really enjoyed my time at Aura! Arrived for my reservation on time and was seated with 2 minutes. There are a few tables here but majority of the seating is lounge like with throw pillows and blankets to really get cozy. The server I had so pleasant and helpful. Drinks and food were very good. Atmosphere was great. Went with friends and I can’t wait to go back with my husband. Highly recommend.

    Great visit and excellent service. Views not as spectacular as other uptown venues but setting is both elegant and modern looking. Only thing is they have quite a big problem with bees around the bar. Not sure exactly why but likely sugary and herby stuff around the bar is attracting them. Bees don't just go to a 5th story building to hang out so they need to address that soon (closed containers, covering stuff, etc). Not a big issue and still gets 5 stars from me but putting here so management is aware that it is an issue for customers.

    This was a double date with amazing views and spectacular service. The only thing that I would love to change is having more lights for nighttime dinning and heaters nearby and also giving patrons longer than 2 hours to eat and talk. It’s hard to leave when you are having such a great time. We will be back!

    Kathy was our server and did an excellent job! We enjoyed the cocktails and the food. Hand rolls, tuna tacos, hummus, shrimp lettuce wraps…all excellent. Nice quality of tuna as well. In addition, the sound system is one of the best in the city (it seems other establishments don’t invest enough in this detail. It’s appreciated)

    Our experience was not great. We had reservations at 8:30 and the place closed at 9 that we were unaware of. We did not get a greeting when she came over with her name nor highlights of the menu. The whole time we felt rushed. It was a great atmosphere and ok food.

    I’ll give this another try once they’ve been open awhile. They just seamed extremely unorganized and overwhelmed. I hate to give a bad review but it was terrible. I would have loved to try the tapas but our waitress never made it to our table and since it took 10 mins to get a straw for our cocktails, we decided to leave and not make the experience worse. The entire area is small but cute
