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.

Gerry is the best chef in Atlanta. Please go to this quaint restaurant in Buckhead. From the seasonal soups, to probably the best foie gras in North America (no kidding) to fresh fish, beef, and pork entrees, this place is incredible. Katryn Kings desserts are not to be missed... save some room.

My wife and I meet here annually with one of our business partners to celebrate another year of business. We look forward to a very special evening, and as usual, Aria goes above and beyond. After a quick cocktail at the bar, we opted this year for Chef's tasting menu, and supplemented that with a few additional dishes from the... More

Just had two couples go to the newly renovated Aria. In my view, this is a better experience than the past. It was terrific! Forks were flying around the table trying one another's dishes We had a snapper, chicken, spinal is steak and short rib. We could have played musical chair and swapped dishes. All were outstanding. Good service and... More

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

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.

Thank Imrahil5000
