Aida has been on our list to try for a while now, as it has made a lot of noise in the Columbia food scene. Tucked away in a business park on Colonel Gateway, it is a small unassuming place from outside. We could see tasteful dining room when we stepped in, but we opted to sit at the bar.... More

Loved my experience at Aida Bistro Wine Bar this evening with our party of 8. Dined for the first time after a Maryland men's basketball game in College Park. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The Flash-Fried Rock Shrimp was spectacular! The Grilled Heart of Romaine was awesome. The Seared Day Boat Scallops were presented beautifully and had delicious flavors. Every single... More

We celebrated my in laws 50th wedding anniversary with a party of 16 and had an outstanding time. The staff was very attentive, informative, knowledgeable. This is my third time there and the food was once again outstanding. We even had one relative that has severe food allergies and can't eat gluten and they were happy and able to accommodate... More

The best part about the meal was the fresh pasta. The kids split the spaghetti and meatballs which came around 10 minutes before our meals arrived. After having a taste of theirs, i was very pleasantly surprises and waited in anticipation for our dishes. My wife's sausage pasta and my lamb were both disappointing in comparison. Also, while the calamari... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. My last experience was just as good as the first. I went with two other colleagues for lunch. The restaurant is a bit more upscale, but a great choice recommendation for senior staff visiting the area. The service was attentive without being invasive. I saw that the manager was actively on the... More

My husband and I went to Aida's tonight for dinner for the first time - we were nearby for a meeting and decided to try it out. It was very busy with Holiday Party groups on a Monday night, but our service was pretty good for a full house. The menu was interesting and varied, although limited but our choices... More

The food was okay--nothing special. They do not serve bread unless you buy it separately. The olive oil that came with it was nearly tasteless. I ordered the cheese ravioli with marinara sauce. It was $17 for six ravioli. It did not come with anything else. My husband had spaghetti and meatballs which he enjoyed; however, the portion was small.... More

Aida Italian Restaurant - On Saturday we arrived for Dinner At 7:15PM --Warmly Greeted and immediately Seated. Waiters took order for drinks returned quickly and our orders for dinner were placed.

Have eaten here before with mixed results, but they really seem to have hit their stride in October. Everything was perfect, including my husband's venison. The salmon with pureed parsnips was outstanding. Luckily, I ordered the small portion (which was more than enough as far as I'm concerned) so I had room for the pumpkin Creme Brûlée, which was out...
