The food was all unique and freshly prepared. Flavorful, filling, perfect combinations of feels like home and high end splurging. Staff was extremely professional and friendly. Great atmosphere for a date night or to catch up with family and friends.

I have eaten at Aria on several occasions, and have never been disappointed. Most recently, over New Year's, I had the chance to try breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu is on the smaller side, but the offerings are high quality. For breakfast, I opted...for blueberry granola pancakes with bacon and orange juice via room service. While the service itself took quite some time, the pancakes were flavorful and the bacon was excellent. At dinner, I chose the salmon, which was served with an avocado-pistachio caponata on a bed of kale. I have always loved Aria's fries (and have visited several times solely for them), and can note that their quality is remarkably consistent. I did not enjoy the flavors of the dressing on the kale, but the salmon was good paired with the caponata. The service at Aria is always warm and friendly. Specifically, I brought my niece and nephew to show them The Dark Room. Although we weren't dining, the hostess at Aria did the while TDR reveal with the curtain and bookshelf after helping the kids search Aria. I really appreciated this, because while totally unnecessary, it added to their experience at Saint Kate. I would recommend Aria to anyone looking for a pleasant lunch or dinner with friends.More

This quiet bar is a perfect spot for a drink before dinner with conversation and great service. We were there around 6 pm and loved all of the natural light. It is a great asset to the hotel. There is another bar on the main...floor that offers a completely differnt vibe (good for lively after dinner fun).More

Aria is the all-day restaurant at The Saint Kate hotel, which is one of this new breed of hotels that celebrates art - it's a very interesting place. The lobby is like an art museum - so much to see. Located right across the street...from The Marcus Performing Arts Center, the hotel echoes the neighborhood fixation on the arts. In the restaurant, everything about the room is stylish - I was enamored with the water glasses. The room is quite large but comfortable. The menu is imaginative and just what one would expect in an arts hotel. I enjoyed the Fried Egg Sandwich. Service was very good.More

I had heard so many wonderful things about Aria at Saint Kate that my heart practically sang when my friend said that she made a reservation there for us. I heard that it was quiet, that the food was good, and that the service was...excellent. Well, the service was excellent. We ordered from the luncheon menu: a cup of tomato/red bell pepper soup, and a chicken salad sandwich. The sandwich filling was bland and the bread/croissant was so fragile that we needed to eat our sandwiches with knife and fork. The soup was barely lukewarm. As the restaurant began to fill, it became more and more noisy. Our experience at Aria at Saint Kate was average at best. With so many other restaurants in Milwaukee to try, there is no reason to return here.More

Stopped in to Aria for breakfast before checking out of the Saint Kate. Bright open room decorated with lots of cook books. Service was friendly. Tea presentation is very nice. I just had an English muffin and bacon, pretty standard fare for me. My husband...had the Kitchen Sink Fried Rice and loved it.More

Several "special" fish dinners and a burger and a couple of desserts... Our entrees were priced from $15 to $32, I believe. Food was excellent, except I missed a bit of sauce on the burger. Otherwise that burger of mine with the fries was very...good. $27 for a bottle of decent wine was also enjoyed. The delicious, but very light chocolate cake was a terrific ending to the meal. Service was highly attentive to our table. Would love to return to try more of the menu offerings.More

Especially in Room Service - every effort was made to insure my satisfaction. When I had a special request, I typically stated that if they were not able to accommodate I would be totally satisfied with the alternative. In every instance I received a call...back to advise that they were able to accommodate. And - I often got a call to insure that the delivery had arrived by the stated time.More

I can't say enough good things about this place. We were there for happy hour and we originally wanted to visit Giggly for drinks but there was no seating so we were able to get a table at Aria. Ben was our server (pictured below...with us). He was the best! He allowed us to order drinks and food from Giggly which was the Cotton Candy Champagne Flutes with the option of pink or blue cotton candy and the Macaroons and Truffles. My friend ordered the Cotton Candy Campagne Flute and the soup of the day, Watermelon Gazpacho. The atmosphere was classy and perfect for Instagram. Even the follow patrons were nice and curious about our Cotton Candy Champagne Flutes. I would definitely go back (which I have for dinner with another girlfriend) for the atmosphere, drinks, food, and service.More

Fair prices. Surprised to see Bob's big boy on the menu. Haven't had one of those in years. It was just like I remembered. However not with the wedges of lettuce. French fries instead
