We were on vacation and celebrated our daughter's 9th bday here. They had a wild boar pasta dish that was a huge hit with her. The bruschetta appetizer was wonderful. I loved that there were different options. Service was great.

Aria's location makes it ideal for a pre-event dinner. But beyond location, they have a good menu and crisp service that ensures you will get to your show on time. Our party of 4 started with calamari, caesar salad and arugula salad - which were...More

I believe the answer is yes. I was there on a weekday night as part of a large group. Sometimes, being part of a large group gives you a different experience (it cuts both ways). Go and enjoy yourself.

Regardless of whether they have a kids menu or not, I would not let that deter you from visiting Aria. It is tremendous and Im sure the kitchen would accommodate you! Or simply call them to enquire. Enjoy!
