3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Returned to Aria after a 10-year hiatus, having learned they have new décor and menu. First off, they did not fix the noise issue - you still have to shout to be heard across the table (annoying if you want a leisurely dinner with friends). The crab cake and slaw appetizer was tasty but avoid the avocado soup. My duck... More

Billed as a place of Romance with a capital R - so much so you may order flowers for you table, it is loud to the point is is hard to hear your dining companion without raising your voice. Good food? Yes. Romantic venue ? Absolutely not! The food was excellent. We had a small plate of arananci, followed by... More

Pros: Completely new interiors, cool and comfortable bar area, 4 tops in center of dining space, comprehensive menu with new starter "snacks", excellent wine list, you can go for any type of meal and every one will leave happy. Space is dramatic. Consider getting 1 of each snacks, all of the following were favorites: Lamb, scallops, avocado soup, tomato watermelon... More

I had a very nice dinner there recently. I was pleasantly surprised with some eclectic wine offerings and i thought the menu was really pretty good. Dessert was just ok but i'm still pretty high on the place.

We each had different items and enjoyed everything. It was such a nice experience. I had not been there for several years and it still met me expectations

We got early reservations because we had Harry Connick, Jr. tickets at Chastain Park later in the evening. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We had the scallops and tuna. Both we out of this world. Excellent time!

Aria has been a consistent favorite for years. The service, food and charm is one of the best in the city of Atlanta. Love the warm lobster cocktail, lamb chop starter, braised short ribs and scallops that melt in your mouth. Everything on the menu is delicious and I love the service here!!

We were visiting Atlanta and I was fortunate enough to have chosen this restaurant to try about a month before and made reservations. During that time, the restaurant underwent renovations and we met several folks previous to going who were anxious to try out the "new" restaurant. The restaurant didn't disappoint with decor - modern grey walls, large mirrors with... More

Aria offers a unique take on the hybrid that is American Cuisine. Expect to pay a dear price - celebratory dinner for two with a bottle of wine exceeded $250 (disclosure: it was an expensive bottle), but the quality ranks among the finest in Atlanta. I recommend the breast of duck with oyster mushrooms and the yellowtail hamachi. Both are... More

We visited Atlanta for a spontaneous three day weekend and chose Aria for our first evening in the city. The menu contained many items we were anxious to try so rather than limiting ourselves to the usual two or three courses, we ordered a wide range of dishes (5 ) and asked to share them. We expected they would place... More
