Even though we just worked out, we were still welcome at the lounge to grab some delicious sushi! The service was great and we were very comfortable with the atmosphere. We can't wait to back and try more of the delicious food!

After a stressful day with the family, I decided to have a drink at the bar at Aria. 3 of the drinks I ordered they could not serve because they did not have the ingredients! I ordered an Apricot Pisco Sour and had to return it. Then I figured I would play it safe and order a Cosmo, that was... More

We enjoyed our lunch here. Chicken tandoori salad and salmon nicoise. Our very nice waitress told us they had just introduced a new menu and it looked very good--lots of choices. Service was excellent-everyone was friendly.

Never in my life I have ever had such an awful experience. We arrived for lunch at noon on Friday (May 2, 2014). We were told the restaurant was full but the same menu was available in the bar. The eight (8) of us were seated at a long table, two across, very narrow, a distance of approx 10 feet... More

Terrible service, server was busy stocking and discussing wine with delivery person. Several menu items unavailable. Food average given the price.

I reluctantly made a reservation here for my family's Easter brunch. It was a few days before Easter when I called for reservation because the other places I preferred were fully booked. I asked for 11:30am but they were fully booked until afternoon. The lady in reservation was gracious enough to fit us in at 11:45am. The place was not... More

I had the seared Scallops. There were 4 large scallops, lightly seared. I expected them to be a bit more seasoned than they were. They sat on top of a medley of vegetables that were surprisingly spicy, and kind of overtook the flavor at times. Friend had duck, which was a bit too rare for my taste. But to be... More

I'd recommend it, otherwise venture out for better cocktails/meal choices; pricey for the offerings, waitress not very knowledgeable about the drinks that are available.

Food was cold and bread was hard as a rock. Service mediocre, cocktails average as best. Overall, weak scores on all counts.
