It's what you get when you are committed to your community, your friends and your family. After almost 20 years of working in fine dining establishments, Northeast Ohio native, and classically trained Chef James Balchak has moved back home for a new venture: Aurelia, an American-style bistro.

“Local fresh” is the theme of Aurelia, the JB Restaurant Group’s first restaurant. As Chef James Balchak defines it, “I believe in Northeast Ohio; the food will be sourced from local farms, fisheries and suppliers. All food products will be fresh and seasonal and the menu will change based on what is available during the season or on that day.” The New American-style bistro will offer a wide variety of high quality food in an upscale, yet causal environment at reasonable prices.

Aurelia, honest food & drink, is an American-style bistro, in Chagrin Falls. Honest is local. Honest is fresh. Honest is reasonable.

    Came here for birthday dinner. While there did seem to be a lot of Indian inspired dishes which were delicious, I would have appreciated some more variety in the menu. Very sad they’re closing, dying breed of farm to table. I don’t understand why we don’t have more of Aurelia type places in NEO with all of our farms and local food. Their community inspiration and footprint will be missed.

    For the first time, our dinner experience was not good. Food came out not as warm as it should. Portions for the 2 birria taco order (tortilla filler) were extremely small. And when sharing this comment with the server, he said all is pre-portioned in the kitchen, instead if saying (“I will let my manager know”.

    The service was for the drinks, but it was very difficult to get his attention to take our dinner order. The food was incomplete. They had a fish salad that was supposed to have mushrooms and asparagus included in it, but it wasn't. The waiter had to go back to the kitchen to bring it out to us. He only brought out enough for one of us.

    Reservation for 6pm, arrived on time. Service was awful. Ordered a bottle of wine. It’s the only thing that was served on time. Waiter disappeared (same guy who stiffed us at happy hour a couple weeks ago). 7:30, 3 different entrees were delivered, none of what was ordered. At 8:10, finally hunted the waiter down and asked for bill. He delivered the bill and said if I wait a few more minutes, he’d wrap my entree to take away. WTF. I didn’t order carry out. Wife and I had gotten a babysitter for our date night. Complete disaster of an evening. No dinner, 3 hours of a babysitter, dissatisfied customers.

    Valentine’s Day at the restaurant did not disappoint. Good appetizer with the Brussel Sprouts. My wife had a bowl with rice and fish which was good and I had the lamb which was decent but could have been better. Desert was excellent and drinks were outstanding! We will definitely return as it’s a great find in Chagrin Falls at the old Dinks location. Prices were very affordable and the service was 1st rate.

    Was really looking forward to trying this place - reviews seemed solid and the menu looked good. Unfortunately the service was unbelievably slow and the food wasn’t worth the wait. We had the adobo chicken and which lacked flavor and was very, very dry. The pork was better however it was also pretty overcooked. The cocktails were the best part of the meal however lacked balance.

    Most of the food relied on salt to deliver some flavor.....too much salt. The local pork dish was very tough and tastless. Any taste was from the condiments on top of the pork....remove that and no taste. The tempura green beans and tempura broccoli was good. The pomegranate martini was good. The service was a bit slow.

    The restaurant was full little cold. The door kept opening, but the maître D was very accommodating. Our drinks took a little longer to get there, but not a big problem. I ordered a steak, but the waiter came back and said they were out of steak so I had the pork instead it was delicious, my three guests enjoyed their meal as well. I’ll give it another try at another time. The hostess was a sweetheart.

    The restaurant is comfortable—small but not loud. The drinks are all very interesting and delicious. The menu is small but our group of 4 tried 3 different entrees, 2 appetizers and both desserts. We really enjoyed all of it. We were there over 2 hours and no one tried to rush us out. Highly recommend

    Always have loved this place, but last experience was not as stellar. There was a fundraiser occurring (a good thing!), but it resulted in the bar area being so crowded that patrons were encroaching on the dining area and bumping into us as we sat at an adjacent table. Also, would prefer if servers would WRITE orders on pads. Requiring them to memorize everyone's orders led to mistakes. Most of the food was good, but dining companions thought the fries were overly seasoned. Choosing to believe this was just an off night and that our next visit to Aurelia will be back up to standards.

    Ordered the butternut squash risotto, especially for the squash, but if there were any purées within it it was so over, powered by the cheese and the cream that I couldn’t taste or see it. Otherwise, food was good, but seating so tight that we were listening to other peoples conversations. Very loud and live.
