We've been dining at Aria for years. While I'm not a fan of the recent restaurant redo, the bar and lounge area is much better laid out. It used to feel like a hip NYC restaurant and the dining room is now dark and clubby and very similar to some closeby fancy, national chains. However, the staff is wonderful as... More

Looking for a nice place for dinner with business Associates and went to Aria. Great place with excellent food and even though the bar area was very crowded and extremely noisy the overall experience was excellent. We were a party of five and the service was great! We all ate different items and everyone raved about the food. From Smoked... More

I've been to Aria several times and it's always special and delicious. I love the ambiance of the restaurant and the food always keeps to a high standard. It's a great place for a special night out. You can't go wrong with anything you order off the menu. The bar area can get crowded and tight at peak times.

We've been to Aria on several occasions and have always enjoyed it. Although the decor has updated and it is now more contemporary, its new interior consisting of a grey/wood scheme is somewhat bland and cold. The restaurant could use some color and softer surfaces to control the noise and create a more inviting environment in my opinion. When I... More

We spent a wonderful Saturday night in ATL. We started the evening a Aria. We both enjoyed different seafood dishes on the recommendation of our server- he was absolutely right: Delicious. My only regret was that we were so full that we did not have room for dessert.

There were four of us and all appetizers and main courses were excellent. Service was also excellent. Acoustics not great in the main dining area but better at table up by the bar. Would definitely recommend the octopus tempura, beat salad, leg of lamb and duck breast. Steak and scallops were also very good. Would definitely book here again.

I took a friend out for his birthday and we absolutely loved Aria. The food is top notch. I had an heirloom tomato salad that was fresh and delicious. He had the clam chowder which is a little odd in the summer but he loved it as it wasn't too creamy or too runny. He said it was perfect. He... More

Went to celebrate hubby's bday. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and the ambiance was classic! Really enjoyed our time there, a couple even got engaged at the next table. Lively atmosphere without losing classiness.
