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

Aria's has a great appeal for special occasions. My wife and I dined there after reading their reviews and were not disappointed. The decor is white table cloth setting, smaller tables but they can accommodate a group of five to seven. The service was really top-notch and the food was definitely Chef quality although it wasn't spelled out on the... More

We went here for lunch in the middle of the day. This food is very good. The prices are a little high for what you're getting however the service in the atmosphere make up the difference. The wait staff is very efficient and friendly. They are attentive to your needs and they are very unobtrusive. Speed of service is to... More

Had a pretty good experience. Definitely lived up to the ratings and reviews. They were able to accommodate last minute changes in our reservations which I was very pleased with. The atmosphere is interesting, you walk into a very dark lounge type of area with a small bar if you're waiting. The bartender was wonderful, very nice and was happy... More

I couldn't wait to dine at this restaurant. I had read previous reviews and the photos I saw were beautiful. Sadly, by the end of the meal, I could not wait to leave. My first impression was from the outside entrance, a little worn looking with wood planks and stiletto heel traps galore. Be careful, ladies. Upon entering, you will... More

Food was very good, but service is a bit spotty. Served bread after my appetizer, and there was no bread plate and bread knife for me when it came. Told the waiter about it but my bread plate never came.

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
