Unique menu pays off

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.

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...

Visted this place a few times for business dinners over the span of a few years. Without a doubt the braised shorts ribs where one of the best dishes I have had. The crisp white interior was very elegant and the service was great.

Celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary in Atlanta. The food and service was outstanding. Started off with grey goose martini's, then on to cauliflower salad and scallops and lamb for our main course. One course surpassed the other in taste and presentation. We would recommend Aria for any special occasion or for just a fine dinner. You will not be disappointed.....

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
