Good food, some different tastes in seasonings, such as tarragon. Large portions, and small plates available. Very ample selection of fine wines and bottled beers. A gluten-free beer is among the choices. On the negative side no small taste of beers was allowed. An excellent art exhibit by Cheri Glover was featured on the walls-- brightening the atmosphere, appearance, and... More

After several average experiences, we thought to give it one more try in the new location with just us. We started with calamari which was ok, nothing to write home about. Lacked favor and dipping sauce was tasteless, just plate dressing. Drinks to ease the pain were false sense of soothing with a short glass of peach sangria and a... More

Definitely worth a visit. The helpful, cheerful and friendly staff will offer suggestions on entrees and beverages. They have a selction of small plates as well as the usual large portions and daily specials. They offer an interesting collection of local, domestic and imported wines available in 'tasting' sizes (3 oz). The place was busy on a Tuesday night. They... More

We met some friends and were seated immeadiatley. As it was a very pleasant evening we sat outside. The resturant is on the BWI flight path, so at times it was a little hard to hear. Waiter was good and offered specials. Food was tasty, but took a while to come out of the kitchen.

Having eaten here for dinner a couple of years ago and enjoying it being back in the area we wanted to see if it was as good as we thought it was. Well we couldn't do dinner due to prior commitments but did do lunch. We arrived shortly after opening (opening is at 1100), were seated promptly and the serves... More

Attended for mother's day brunch and the food was fantastic. Aida's prix fixe menu selections made it hard to choose and no one was dissapointed with their selection. HIghly recommended for any occasion or simply to have a great meal.

I much prefer hanging out in the bar area and grabbing a table if possible. I find the restaurant part a little crowded and the décor there just doesn't seem to match. They have excellent 2 for 1 appetizers during their happy hours and for the business traveler, you can try some awesome wine and make a meal of it.... More

Our first visit here is several years, and the new place is definitely much more pleasant than the previous spot. Note: it is noisy and may be hard to hold a conversation when the restaurant is full. Service was pleasant and efficient. My husband said his lamb burger was perfectly done. I had the vegetarian burger which came without the... More

Aida is a place with wine on tap. They have an excellent selections of wine and serve them in various sizes. The food was good and interesting. We had a cheese and meat tray to begin with which was delicious. I had the egg plant parmasean which was good but not great. The portion was more than adequate. The service... More
