I know lots of "a's" but I could also say awesome and the service is attentive. This is my second visit and I have to say no one either time had any dish that was extraordinary. This visit we all started with dreamless celery root soup which was wonderful. How it was so creamy and rich without cream is a... More

Food was very good, but I've had food just as good for a better price. The wine list was very expensive, with a limited selection by the glass. The service was very good. Nice and romantic for a special occasion.

Every year I go to Aria. It's one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta since it opened over 20 years ago. The restaurant is gorgeous. The food is always on point. And the service is exemplary. I can simply advise order what you want since every dish is a winner. I know the scallops and the braised short ribs are... More

Just a superb dinner. Thoroughly enjoyed the tasting menu. Truly believe this is the finest restaurant in Atlanta. Cream of celery soup with a taste of black truffle was perfectly presented and hot and fresh. Followed by an octopus tempura perfectly complemented with a cold frisée salad. Quail and venison followed. And an espresso chocolate cake topped off the mail.... More

Really enjoyed our New Year's family celebration at Aria. Love the atmosphere, you feel like you are in a special place with the white on white decor with gorgeous modern touches. We had no one seated right next to us and so had no trouble enjoying our conversations. Would like to commend our waiter, best one I think we had... More

We don't eat meat or she'll fish but aria had a few items that worked for us. The salads were great and the sole was v v good. The best part was how well the server read our mood and paced the meal in accordance with our style and tastes. Excellent experience

I was searching for a restaurant with an attractive and calming ambience, delicious food, excellent customer service, and nearby. Aria fit the bill perfectly. It is located in Buckhead. The decor is sophisticated and attractive - and most importantly, has an ambience making possible a feeling of calm. The food was beautifully plated and delicious. The service excellent.

The food at Aria was some of the finest food I have ever eaten. The presentation was beautiful and I would recommend the restaurant to all foodies. However, unlike us, if you are looking for large portions this in not a restaurant for you. The duck appetizer was to die for! The server allowed us to share numerous dishes and... More
