“Novel Creations in a Contemporary Setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Definitely worth a visit. The helpful, cheerful and friendly staff will offer suggestions on entrees and beverages. They have a selction of small plates as well as the usual large portions and daily specials. They offer an interesting collection of local, domestic and imported wines available in 'tasting' sizes (3 oz). The place was busy on a Tuesday night. They have a room for large gatherings as well as a reasonably sized dining area and a bar. Outdoor seating is available but there were no takers on a hot July day.

“A nice evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We met some friends and were seated immeadiatley. As it was a very pleasant evening we sat outside. The resturant is on the BWI flight path, so at times it was a little hard to hear. Waiter was good and offered specials. Food was tasty, but took a while to come out of the kitchen.

“Super”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Having eaten here for dinner a couple of years ago and enjoying it being back in the area we wanted to see if it was as good as we thought it was. Well we couldn't do dinner due to prior commitments but did do lunch. We arrived shortly after opening (opening is at 1100), were seated promptly and the serves was there for our drink orders immediately. Although there is a great wine list/selection we just opted of ice tea (wanted wine, but...) We had a light lunch - cup of their take on sweat and sour soup (outstanding!!!), Cuban sandwich (nice), and a goat salad with scrimp added (the goat cheese - fried lightly with a very light coating of panko, egg white and a little flour, was over the top in GOOD! All-in-all to bad we could make it for dinner. Next time we are in the area (in March 2015) we already have Aida's on the list of must go to.

“Chef's offering are exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

Attended for mother's day brunch and the food was fantastic. Aida's prix fixe menu selections made it hard to choose and no one was dissapointed with their selection. HIghly recommended for any occasion or simply to have a great meal.
