Took my wife here for valentines day. We both looked at the menu online a couple times a week before we went and liked what we saw. Only to get there and they changed their menu to a special one day menu with way higher prices. I understand why, but at least post it on your website to let people know.

cheers

Food was excellent, however service was quite slow. In the booking I had mentioned that it was a birthday for myself and my mother. Unfortunately, no one acknowledged this at the restaurant. This, coupled with the servers not checking back with us a regular basis, made for a long/poor service experience. Otherwise, everything else was great.

Husband had roasted pepper soup, terrible, and I ordered penne arrabiata and it tasted exactly like his soup?!? He also ordered lobster tail (chewy and tasteless) and filet mignon and had to ask for the melted butter (they forgot) it came half way through the meal and it was dark brown (burnt). My daughter had over cooked/burnt chicken fingers. Inedible. Thankfully they didn’t charge us for the pasta and chicken fingers. Service was nice, ambiance is ok, could be much better.

The Caesar salad and pasta entree were too garlicky and the pasta sauce was flavourless( except for the garlic) and had very little beef. We enjoyed the service and the dining room but were unimpressed with the food.
Hopefully this can 8mprove on our next visit.

This is one of the nicer restaurants in Brampton, so prepare to pay accordingly. It is not a cheap place to eat, but it's worth what you pay.

I found the service very friendly and professional. I also have to compliment the chef on how he prepared the meal. I ordered the fish special and it came seared on the outside but still moist and tasty on the inside. Overall I can highly recommend this place.

We have been great fans of Aria since before its new management and have eaten there many times over the years. With the recent renovations, the ambience is fresh and vibrant. The new young chef has put forth a delectable menu and we were thrilled with our dinner. Friendly and attentive wait staff only added to our experience. When someone asks if we know a "good" restaurant in Brampton, we always recommend Aria as the "best" restaurant in Brampton. A class act. And thank you Chef for a surprise dessert (delish!!) for our anniversary!

The food was good and service was excellent. However, we were seated in the upstairs area (2nd floor) which is pretty dull. The ambiance was not ideal and I felt like I was sitting in someone's apartment. The downstairs (first level) area was warm and romantic. I realized that I should have been given a choice to sit upstairs or downstairs as there was a huge difference in the experience. It wasn't just about eating food (if it was only the food, I would have been happy with a take-out) but it was more about the ambiance. I think if you're sitting upstairs, the value of the experience diminishes a little bit. My suggestion is that when making a booking, call ahead and ask where you'll be seated and ask to be seated downstairs. If the first level is booked for an occasion, find another day or time.

Aria was recommended by a co-worker and a friend as a great place to take my IT customer.
I did so and we were very impressed with the quality of the food.
As always my client eats pasta and loved the shrimp and scallops in cream sauce.
He also enjoyed the vegan brownie ( which I later recommended to my vegan yoga clients).
I had the veal and scallops dish and substituted with quinoa and it was a very healthy portion that I was able to share some with my customer to try.
Very flavourful and delicious.
already added it to my Instagram story and many asked where I was - they thought I was in Vegas and were surprised it was in Brampton.
Well done Aria!

Our Christmas luncheon with friends was a great success at Aria. The food was excellent in taste, presentation and price.
The service was attentive, but not intrusive, respectful and friendly. The waiters were knowledgeable about ingredients, and helpful to allergy-conscious diners.
Our table was perfect for our chatter and gift exchange. We particularly enjoyed the use of purse/bag holders.
Thank you .

Pleasant and comfortable historic home with attentive staff and an interesting menu. The only drawback was the lack of accessibility, which is not mentioned on the website. There are several steps at the entrance, and washrooms are upstairs.

What an awesome experience! We've never been to this lovely restaurant before-- we're visiting from Windsor. From the moment we walked in the service was outstanding. The venue itself is a beautiful, restored home. The host, as well as the waiters, were supremely professional, friendly, and well informed, and attentive.

I ordered the seared halibut, and my husband ordered the scallops and veal. Both meals were served piping hot, perfectly prepared, and in generous portions. Best meal we've enjoyed in a long time, and we dine out often, especially my husband who travels weekly for business. We enjoyed a lovely glass of wine with our meal, ordered from an extensive wine list.
We were too full for dessert however the desserts looked amazing. We will make a point to return the next time we are in the area! Would highly recommend.

The environment was very nice and our waiter did attend to our needs. The soup was delicious. We ordered the steak and shrimp special. There was one grilled shrimp on a large Sirloin. The meat was cooked perfectly but it was so bland. It had no taste to it whatsoever. I would like to return to try the seafood.

Loved the baked brie. Good fig and arugula salad; could have benefitted from an additional crunchy green (maybe chard) and candied walnuts. Unforgettable steak taste and preparation. Seasoning on chicken supreme was too light, but mushroom and wild rice saved the day. Unobtrusive yet attentive wait staff. Lighting and noise levels helped create positive atmosphere.

We returnd to this location for a revisit on our 30th Anniversary. We had our wedding reception at this location when it was known by a different name. I wish we hadn't waited so long!
The food was very good (Veal and scallops for me - King Crab for her) done to perfection!
Service was good and the desert was complementary (Creme Brulet). Well worth the cost and it was fun to relive the event.
