Let me start by saying that the food was certainly delicious and the service was very good however the prices are pretentiously a bit too high for what really wasn't a "fine dining" experience. It was a good dinner but portions were so-so and the prices just didn't match what we were getting. I had the Branzino fillets with rapini and a side of roast potatoes... nothing really that special... $54 just seems too high for this. All in all I would still recommend this restaurant as the food was delicious but just be prepared to pay dearly.
Would definitely go back, been several times and always consistently great food and good service.
I always have pasta and they get it right
Wow!!! Loved it
AMAZING! If you haven’t been to Aria yet, you must go! Incredible food, great service and the varieties of wines is quite incredible. The server recommended a great wine and my friend had a handcrafted cocktail that was really yummy. The vibe was great, definitely recommend this place to anyone!
The menu hasn’t changed for some time. The food was over cooked and bland. I also noticed that the fish portion was less than it used to be. It’s a shame as the restaurant is beautiful, the service is pretty good but the food let’s them down.
All good...perfect before a concert
Delicious food. Just didn’t stay hot. Great place. Expensive cocktails.
Great place to go before heading to the Queen concert.
The food (especially the pasta) was very good, however, unfortunately later in the evening we noticed a mouse roaming the restaurant which completely turned us off of returning! The waiter didn’t seem to be bothered when we pointed the mouse out to him and his only explanation was that it probably came from the underground parking garage but he didn’t make any other comment or effort to appease us that this was uncommon.
I never really write any reviews cuz I’m lazy and I just don’t care that much but this was a horrible experience that made me diligent enough to write this review. First of all, very loud in terms of noise level, ambiance and employees attitudes. It seemed like a full house/busy night for them and servers were running around and between the tables like crazy. They would often hit my table with their hips and push my napkins and utensils as they pass by. Their table arrangement is the worst I’ve ever seen in a restaurant. I’m a big foodie and I’d pay high price for a good meal. However, this place was certainly over priced compared to the quality of their food. I did like their high ceiling and their artistic lighting but I’d rather have a good meal than a high ceiling with pretty lighting. I ordered one appetizer and two main for me and my company and the server looked at me like he was surprised and asked if that’s okay. I asked him if that’s too much for two people and he replied it wouldn’t be enough cuz most people here don’t really share and order their own. Well, thank god I didn’t pay another $30 for a tiny little app cuz even the first one was definitely not worth it. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. In fact I’d stop anyone from going to this restaurant. It ruined my good Saturday night that cost $120 for two people meal.
The food was a bit bland, waiter & food service was good but waited a long time for my cocktail, it arrived when I finished my dinner.
Good spot for business lunch
The food was just okay. We ordered the Summerlicious dinner and felt it was overpriced for what we had. It’s in a very touristy area and weren’t crazy about the food. The service, however was great.
Great service and food !
the food could have been a lot better, not really worth the money
Good service and good food. Waiter was very helpful and polite. Very quiet and peaceful, comfortable setting.
Took advantage of summerlicious to try out Aria. Our menu was delightful.....a little different than mainstream. A cervice style seafood salad starter, followed by a wonderful sea bass fillet and a lemon tart with homemade gilato for dessert. Service was excellent both friendly and attentive. Although their regular menu is on the pricey side, it’s definitely worth a try for a special occasion.
Restaurant has a nice open, comfortable feel. The food was good but not exceptional as you would hope for the prices. We were especially taken aback at the overpriced water and wine. Comical really. Our server was fine but could have been warmer and more attentive given it was not busy at all. Sadly, at the end of our meal she informed us that she could not divide the bill (for 12 of us). Impossible, she claimed, because we shared bottles of wine and appetizers. In 2019, that is a ludicrous claim. The manager reiterated this and advised us it was our fault that we didn’t mention we wanted separate bills when we sat down. Wow.
Food was good but the experience and pricing was a let down. We will not return or recommend.
Waiter was super nice, food was good but slightly overpriced.
This is an exceptional dining experience. The room is big, bright and beautiful. The service is outstanding. The dishes we enjoyed had us wanting to taste everything on the menu. Great spot for any occasion.
Food was good, restaurant was fancy, and a little pricy but worth it. Was good for our anniversary. Would not recommend bringing children. Menu was sort of hard to read.
The meal was excellent and our server was fantastic. We are not from the city but when we visit this will definitely be on our list to visit again!
Wine was good, food was alright but if I’m going to eat carbs I expect them to be mind blowing and the mushroom ravioli and frutti di mare dish were fine but nothing that special. The lava cake was good though!
Very nice ambience good food, and very convenient location, specially in concert days.
We came to this restaurant for the Giro festival. We were disappointed by the food. The pork roast was completely over cooked and the calamaris were similar as those you can get at a sports bar:( the desert was disappointing as well the only good thing about our diner was the wine. We won’t come back.
Great service, food, etc. always a good place for dinner.
We had a great time at the restaurant, before heading to the symphony. Service was unobtrusive but never lacking. The food was well prepared, however - and I never thought I’d say this - the portions were a bit large if one were to indulge in all courses. I do not know if half portions are offered (at a reduced price, of course) but that would have been appreciated. I would have loved to try a main, but we were all full after an appetizer and pasta. Something to think about.
The food was great, it was the service that really disappointed us .
Food is not anything special. Don’t know if I would go back. Location is extremely convenient if you have a meeting around the area
Restaurant is nice but food just average, a bit bland. Disappointed.
I custom ordered my dinner and it was perfect.
Delicious food. Great service my favourite restaurant in Toronto!
Great food with excellent service, good wine menu. Great location prior to an event st ScotiaBank Arena.
The menu on line does not match the actual restaurant. This is expensive, fine dinning. Portions are small for the price. 3 of us ordered steak with a side each, we split an appetizer and dessert. We all had 2 drinks each. Don't be surprised by the bill $$$$$$. Overall food was decent, but the men were hungry rest of the night.
It was a great start to an evening out without the kids. Our server was great and allowed us to take our time ...enjoying apps before ordering our main course. Food was pricey but delicious. We will be back.
Food was not that great. If you like italian food you will be disappointed.
Wine list by glass is very poor for this type of restaurant
Pasta I had was fine - a bit heavy
We had an Amazing meal. The gnocchi and ravioli were amazing. Made fresh in house and were perfect. Our Server was awesome!! Wine list was very knowledgeable and had a great selection from Italy, we will definitely go back. Only thing was the tables were very close together so there was not as much privacy as expected for our reservation. Other than that was a great experience. We will be heading back very soon.
Overpriced and the food was ‘ok’ at best. Would never go there again and would not recommend.
Great dinner before Leafs game!
