Wonderful food

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... read 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

I've been to Atlanta on business about a half-dozen times in the last several years, and each time I've gone out to a reputedly excellent restaurant with friends. Aria is the best so far. The atmosphere is low-key; but quiet, spacious, and comfortable. The service is friendly but rather slow; it seemed a long time between our seating and the... More

This is a great restaurant in the heart of Atlanta, I personally enjoyed the Octopus as an appetizer and the steak. It was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. This is a must see in Atlanta!

Really enjoyed the food at our visit to Aria for my wife's birthday. The menu was quite eclectic as it pulled unusual ingredients - sunchokes, spaetzle, romanesco, creme fraiche vinaigrette - from Asian, Italian and American foodie cuisines. Also enjoyed the charming and romantic atmosphere. The service was fine, but my wife and I were both struck by how odd... More

What a meal! What service! What atmosphere! Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in assisting us choose wine for our courses. Dead on with each pick. He allowed us to have a leisurely experience, yet was there when we needed him. Attentive yet not hovering. My foie gras was a buttery, melt-in-your mouth delight! The scallops were seared to...
