It's all about the Chèvre Goat Cheesecake for me. A warm mild sweet cheesecake on top of a shortbread crust. Can you say HEAVEN???!!! OH MY. Ok so the food is also excellent. We celebrated our anniversary there a few months ago and had the chef's tasting menu in the private cellar. A very... read more

My friend and I went there for dinner while on a business trip to Atlanta. We decided to do the tasting menu and told our waiter to have the sommelier add wines for each course. It was truly a gastronomic experience! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes high end gourmet food. Our first course was a... More

Our group of six was thrilled by the truly exquisite food and outstanding service in a lovely setting. Every dish came to the table showing great care in its presentation and the way the waitstaff delivered it. I learned later that Aria is frequently rated one of the city's top dining spots and it's easy to see why. Great American... More

Reviews indicated Aria was great and it did not disappoint. I got the six course tasting menu (a good bargain at $68) and it was fine. Fresh, seasonal vegetables provided a luscious zucchini and pea soup. Roasted beets made a lovely salad. Meat courses included a perfect trout filet in a lobster bisque, a crispy duck confit, and the most... More

Came for a work dinner and was glad I had chosen this place! The scallops were perfectly cooked , the sides were all amazing and the foie gras was the best I've ever had! I am not normally a huge foie gras eater, but I've been on a binge since I had it here and have always been slightly disappointed,... More

From the outside, this doesn't look like much. But once inside, the decor is elegant. We ordered foie gras to share and they served it on two plates which was very accommodating. One of my friends asked for greens with the beet salad which they also accommodated. Two of us had the short ribs which were wonderful. Would love to... More

No gimmicks here, just consistently good food and service in a very pleasant space. This time we had the $35/3 course restaurant week special, which was an excellent value.

Very disappointed in Aria. We went there on a friend's recommendation for Buckhead Restaurant Week. One of the members of our party had mushroom allergies, but both entrees on the restaurant week menu had mushrooms in them. We asked for the mushrooms to be substituted or simply left off of one of the entrees. Our server refused to accommodate this... More

My best friend brought me here for my 40th bday. What an awesome experience. The hospitality radiated from every employee. The bread is delicious. We started with braised lobster & crispy soft shell crab, both were delightful. We also had a clam/crab/chowder that the server let us order from the tasting menu, so delicate and fresh. I had the trout... More
