Description: Aria Bistro & Lounge, located at the beautiful historic house of Walter E. Calvert in downtown Brampton, offers an elegant atmosphere to celebrate your most important events. Our 6 private dining rooms, which can accommodate a range of 8 to 80 guests, are the perfect venue for your wedding, corporate or family function. As the new owner of Aria Bistro & Lounge, Michael Cherry is eager to join the vibrant community of Brampton and reveal his restoration of the Walter E. Calvert house, which formally housed neighborhood favorites Chez Marie & Bassano's Restaurant. Each room has been carefully renovated for a modern feel, complete with the latest audio/visual capabilities, while still retaining the old world charm of the original building. Aria also offers a deliciously revamped menu, focusing on New American cuisine made from the freshest ingredients available, while also reflecting on the seasonal bounty of Ontario's many farms.

Booked dinner reservations at the Aria Bistro & Lounge for Valentine's Day. Although we have driven by this restaurant countless times we had never eaten here before, but wanted to try a fine dining experience instead of the usual casual eateries in town. The restaurant is located in a century old home and the ambiance reflects its surroundings - dignified yet still homey, tasteful but not overstated. The restaurant was quite busy (as expected for the holiday) but within 5 minutes our coats were taken and we were seated at our table by the owner of the business. As far as the service goes, we have no complaints at all. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive despite the busy night. The food is expensive, but not exorbitantly so and we felt that the quality was well worth it - again this is a fine dining restaurant so it is to be expected. The bread and dipping plate put on the table was so fresh and tasty (nothing worse than stale bread to start off a meal). All of our dishes arrived at table in a timely manner, all were hot and all tasted wonderful - very fresh ingredients. My partner had the 10oz Angus steak which he said was cooked beautifully medium rare as he requested and melted like butter in his mouth. I had the mnicotti stuffed crepes and this dish was so light and creamy; all the portions were decent size and not huge so as to make one overly stuffed. Dessert was also excellent. With the bill, we were given a couple of nice chocolates and a gift certificate for two, to come back again within a few months to eat there again. We certainly will and look forward to trying the restaurant out again on a regular night - but our first exeprience was very good!

The restaurant looks "stuffy." The food was good, the service was attentive. However, I left there wondering if it was worth the money. At dinner, pasta dishes range from $16 to $22,

Our usual Brampton restaurant was booked so we decided to give Aria Bistro a try. We had not been in this restaurant since it was Chez Marie . We were a little taken back when we pulled into the driveway and were the only car on the lot, we were hoping there was a lot of walk in action. This restaurant is in a century home and is very well appointed inside, we were given a nice window seat and greeted warmly by our waiter. The specials for the evening were explained and the menu was presented. There is not a huge selection on the menu which is a good thing as it limits ones choices. We ordered a spicy shrimp appetizer which was delicious and used the provided fresh bread to soak up the wonderful juices. Our main course choices were the Cajun Salmon and grilled bison steak. My wife does not like here food too spicy so the salmon was requested as mild it was cooked wonderfully and thoroughly enjoyed. My bison steak was cooked to perfection nicely seasoned and tasted great.
Overall our evening at the Aria Bistro was a wonderful surprise and we will be sure to visit this restaurant more frequently.
