For a hotel the food was pretty good

I too was here for restaurant week and do agree with some of the other reviewers comments. The food was quite good but the size of the portions were rather small when compared with other restaurants. The server was very nice and knowledgable. I haven't been here for years but I will probably return.

We enjoyed Aerie during Restaurant Week this year. Restaurant week can be a time to really wow people, or to do the bare minimum because it is often a more inexpensive price point for the finer restaurants. Aerie made us want to come back and order off the regular menu, for sure. Interesting menu offerings for the 3-course prix fixe... More

Came here for our anniversary dinner and was not disappointed at all. All three courses we had were amazingly good. I highly recommend the scallops. Service was okay from what I remember, nothing spectacular. Very nice views. Business casual to formal dress.

We dined at Aerie on a snowy Sunday in January, and sadly, the views that I'd heard about were nonexistent due to blizzard-like conditions. All we could see were clouds of snow. So, our experience rests upon the service and the food, neither of which were impressive. First of all, when we arrived, the host was not there to greet... More

Overall, the dining experience at the Aerie was very enjoyable. The restaurant atmosphere was elegant - cloth table cloths and napkins, clean surroundings, beautiful views.
