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.

The waitress was very nice, the food was good but we could smell the bathroom. It smelled like well water and a plumbing issue. We were also sat right next to the bussing station so there were constantly people walking over putting glasses away while we were there...

When we walked in the place smelled of a very strong fish smell!! Now
We both love fish and we both looked at each other and thought we might want to turn around and leave!! But my partner said let’s give it the benefit of the doubt and stay. The food was okay certainly a decent size portion, service was okay until the end when we’re handed our check by someone other than our waiter and we were not asked for dessert or coffee?? I’m sorry to say we where very disappointed after all the rave reviews from online and friends of ours..

Love this place. The decor of the patio is coming along...it is a nice option to have.
My only complaint is the server was less than enthusiastic. He seemed irritated, and was not interested in making small talk.

As always, the quality of the food and drinks here was top-notch. The apps and the entrees are oh-so-tasty and yet really simple in their composition...no hiding of bad ingredients or bad cooking by way of heavy sauces or excessive spices here! One of our top three restaurants in Geauga county, for sure.

The restaurant was well arranged for social distressing. Most servers had masks except one who served our appetizer without one. The food was delicious... we had the steak done medium rare as requested...and the sides were unusual and very good. We will come again!

This was our first night out at a restaurant since early March and it was a treat. We felt safe in terms of space between tables and all employees wore masks. The drink specials were fabulous - try the special Manhattan. We started with the Brussel Sprouts app and oh my, what a treat that is.I had Lake Erie Walleye and my wife had the Street Corn Salad with Chicken; both were excellent choices. Service was great. We will return.

The flavor of the rib eye poutine was good but my rare rib eye was medium at best.
It was not the best cut of meat and without the sauce really had no taste.

Nice looking place. The entrees were tasteless and tough.
We had the duck and pork chop which tasted the same. The salmon was slightly better. The Brussels sprouts were the best part of the meal.

Chicken and Duck wings were just OK. They should probably take duck wings off the menu as they really don't have much meat on them. Pork chop was just OK. Have had much better meals there in the past.

Went for brunch - and the burger was flavorful and delicious! Great cocktails!
Service super slow, but we were chatting at a girls brunch, so it was ok - but could have been more attentive given the slow time in the restaurant and not many other tables when we went.
Go for the food and local feel, to try it! Just ensure you have some time to spare.
Burger was mid and we were not asked for preparation temp FYI - I was happy with it, but if you like a more well done burger, I’d advise.
Cherry/OJ mimosa - yum!
