Wine on tap

Offers a number of wines "on tap" that can be served in predetermined or custom flights, or in half or full bottle equivalents. Eclectic menu. Everything we tried was good. Outstanding service.

Te food here is great and very reasonably priced for a fine dining establishment. The owners are great people and very conscientious about using locally sourced items for the menu. Plus they have an amazing wine list and have several different wines on tap! serving great food in an inviting atmosphere and saving the planet at the same time.

Aida has an imaginative menu and the food is outstanding. The service is good and their wine system (many wines on tap with "kegs" stored in a temperature controlled room) is very cool. The cost is pricey - and some may think the cost not worth it - but I think the cost reflects the quality of the food. To... More

We decided to visit after a long training session. Having passed Aida for nearly a whole semester, it was a treat to stop by. Great service, a decent craft beer selection. More importantly a nice variety of Maryland wines available.

I'm sorry but I do not agree !! The restaurant uses names of Italian dishes but doesn't compose them in due manner. Most of the menu indicates the ingredients but that does not mean neither the sequence, nor the amount, nor the mode. As long as the request is a vegetable aperitizer I appreciate fantasy, cold composition chef or his... More

Food was impressively good; finished with excellent choice of gourmet cheeses. The flights of wind were really fun. Staff super friendly.

I have NEVER had a bad meal at Aida. I love their farm to table approach, which ensures fresh ingredients and new dishes! I also love their wine selection... I agree with some other reviewers that service can be shabby or even bad, but there are also some incredible servers as well. My boyfriend and I request John when we... More

I selected this restaurant since I was designated to choose a restaurant for our friend's birthday. I had not been to Aida Bistro since they had moved from a space in a nearby shopping plaza to a building not surrounded by other businesses. Our dining experience was great ! We all enjoyed our food selections and enjoyed the ambiance. Our... More

Visited for work. Was embarrassed at the lack of level of hospitality as we were hosting people from all over the country. The hostess was nasty and tried to push us out of the bar where we were spending money. The service was slow and they were unprepared. We were told they were totally booked for the night but they...
