I always have an excellent meal at ARIA! The chef is talented and can cook!! I love so many things on the menu but also like trying the specials. I especially find Aria's soups amazing. Most of the time they are cream less soups yet they taste sinful. The chef has even shared a few of these recipes as so... More

We visited Aria because we specifically sought to treat our daughter and friend to one of the best restaurant experiences that Atlanta had to offer. We had asked around for places that had good tasting menus, and several local people told us that Aria was THE place. I can safely say that this is not THE place. For Calvin Trillin... More

It's been a while since we've been to Aria and I am happy to report it is still amazing! We enjoyed the always yummy lobster appetizer, a summery watermelon and tomato salad, duck and beef short ribs. The duck was one of the best duck dishes I've had - and the beef short ribs never disappoint. Topped it off with... More

There is a splendid feel of intimacy at Aria. While the bar is smallish and doesn't encourage lingering, the main dining room, while open, has an intimate feel without loosing the vibe that has always been there emanating from the central chandelier!!! The menu is appealing from top to bottom so don't be afraid to order your favorite dish. You... More

When visiting Atlanta we were advised by our hotel concierge to try Aria. We are glad we did! Great food, intimate setting, good drinks.

Aria deserves it’s status as one of Atlanta’ s best restaurants. Chef-Owner Gerry Klaskala is comfortable enough to be inventive without being over-the-top esoteric in his menu selections. The Pasta all a Chiatarra, with pancetta, poached egg, black lava salt and parmigiano regianno was something you might get at a quality contemporary Tuscan restaurant and the Crisped Crab Cake with...

Aria is easy to get to and we got there a few minutes early so we could enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the bar. Service was excellent and the only negative was the first table which was given to us. While it looks like it might be a great table its shape served as a funnel for all the noise... More

This was our first visit to Aria and definitely will go back. We decided to try it after a friend told us how much they had enjoyed it. My husband and I had the tasting menu including wine pairings. The meal was excellent, the wines were all perfectly paired. Service was also great.

We visited on weeknight of July 4th holiday and the place was deserted. Wasn't sure of the theme with beaded curtain and with middle eastern music playing in the background. Formal dining room with Georgian moldings with an odd octopus chandelier in center. Just strange to me. Service and staff were very nice and well trained . Food was outstanding-... More
