This was a lovely date night with my husband. We've been to Aida plenty of times before and know what to expect. As always, the food was delicious. We chose the prix fixe menu. Unfortunately, when we ordered a bottle of rose, our server said they didn't have any more bottles of rose. Our creme brulee dessert was very disappointing. It tasted good, but the size was for more fitting for my 3 year old. It was actually laughable. We've had it before, so I don't know why it was so tiny now. Seriously, it looked like a Costco sample. Our server was nice enough, but there was definitely room for improvement. For each course, she never knew who ordered which dish. Again, it's only two of us. Then, it literally took over 30 minutes to get our check. It was ridiculous. She just disappeared. I recommend Aida, but service could've been much better. And next time, we'll grab dessert from somewhere else on the way home.

Lobster roll and scallops were great. But the fresh linguini seafood dish was outstanding: light cream, balanced seasoning and perfectly cooked Lobster and shrimp.

The food was wonderful and they have really nice outdoor seating. It was actually pretty cold out for May when we ate there but they have great outdoor heaters so it was really comfortable sitting outside. The restaurant sits back a ways from the road so there wasn't any traffic noise. It was a great overall experience and I would definitely eat there again.

What part of perfect don't we understand. The food was excellent. The only criticism I have is that I'm gluten free. The GF pasta was a bit undercooked. But it was delicious. (A note to those who must eat gluten free--the menu at Aida's is quite extensive.) There were four of us and it was magnificent. The servers were fantastic. We had a 5:30 reservation and we sat and sat solving the problems of the world with our friends until 9:30. No one said a word. We sat outside and the heaters made it just right. In fact, I'm going back next week.

Wonderful reunion (after pandemic lockdown) lunch! Food & wine recommended were fabulous, including the "dinner to go" manicotti that I brought home. You won't be disappointed.

Good food, a very good front end and an excellent, subtle waiter. I think the ambience took a hit due to Covid-19 accommodations, but plan to go back when the experience could be more livelier.

Was greeted pleasantly by the hostess and seated immediately. Masks were worn and the tables were all distanced out. The outside seating was a welcome dining spot, giving one an opportunity to enjoy the nice weather.
Our server Kellie, was great and very pleasant and helpful.
We ordered a blackened chicken wrap and a salmon Marsala pasta. Both dishes were seasoned well and tasty.
We didn’t order dessert but our cocktails were great and to our liking. We had manhattans and red sangria.
Overall, had a great experience and will definitely go back.

Disappointed in the food!!! Shrimp bisque didn’t have one piece of shrimp in either one of our bowls. Pesto flavor over powered the broth. Didn’t even finish.
Both chicken Parm and eggplant parm were sub par. Sauce tasted like it was out of a jar. Flavorless.
Service was good. Will not return. :(

Hadn't been in a while, but glad we went back! It's a little out of the way, but SO worth it! Plenty of patio dining for spring and summer. Waitress was on top of it, but not to an annoying level. Bus staff was friendly and efficient. Had the salmon BLT and it was perfectly cooked! Delicious! As were the garlic parm. fries. Not your average go-to wine selection; varied and local beer well represented as well as a couple German favs.

A quiet bistro atmosphere for outdoor dining. I had the braised beef bolognese with fettuccini. The sauce was simple, had a nice taste, and contained small pieces of tender beef. The wine mienu had quite a few interesting tastes. The only thing I did not enjoy was the bread pudding with chocolate sauce; the pudding was rather bland in taste. My server was attentive and went out of her way when given a request.
