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...

I know from other reviewers here and elsewhere that experiences have been mixed at Aida Bistro but on the occasion we visited, we experienced wonderful food- an outstanding selection, beautifully presented, perfect wine suggestion by our friendly server, accommodating hostess- they adjusted the heat on the cold, snowy evening we visited, and the pacing of the various portions was perfectly...

We went to dinner expecting classic Italian fare. It is not an easy place to find, located in an office park and having a GPS helps a lot. What we got was good, enjoyable, but not as "advertised." The starter beet salad was very good. For the entree I ordered the Aida Carbonara. The strong point was the home made,... More

We love this place. Wonderful food, homemade pasta, interesting specials and great wine. A little hard to find because it's located in an industrial park type area but worth it!
