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.

I went for winterlious to celebrate Chinese New Year with my parents and auntie.. when we got there the host was very welcoming and took our coats and brought us to the table. Which I thought it was nice. When we got to our table we waited for 30 mins or a little more before we were able to meet our waitress.Finally our waitress came after we either waved or just got the attention... I have been a server before and I believe the number one thing is customer service and I totally understand you can get busy but not only that the waitress had the look of not wanting to serve us but just saying hello or greeting your customer would be a good feeling for the customers.. other then the fact they ran out of some of the items which is ok.. the food was good and tasty..

The seafood pasta was virtually inedible..... Pasta was rubbery and underdone. The shrimp were Asian farmed and soggy.....all in all very poor and overpriced

The overall experience was great, food was great especially the steak, the environment was quiet and romantic, and server was quite thoughtful, gave us a big table. The only problem was the seafood which was not really fresh and it contained some sand inside of the scalups.

It seems they don't want to participate in the Winterlicious... Their options were terrible... I went last year as well and who order something from the regular menu was happier than who tried their Winterlicious...

Poor, small, tasteless

We tried the Winterlicious lunch menu and it was so good. From the hostess to our service, we had a great time. The noise level was perfect, we could have a nice conversation and hear one another. The service was quick and top notch. Everything about this restaurant was awesome and you will not be disappointed. Great dining experience!

We booked for Winterlicious dinner. Food and service were amazing.
Our first table was near an outside door which let in a blast of frigid air when it was opened.
The staff was very accommodating and and seamlessly moved us to a table away from it in no time.

Too expensive for a child (4 years old) no real reasonable choices. Their wines are really over priced.

Winterlicious was not bad, but not great either. All in all, very expensive for the dollars.....

I've dined at Aria now 4 times. The food has always been very good to outstanding. Service is top notch as well. We love going there before a game: GREAT MEAL + location to the arena.

Last time - we asked for some bread and get charged $6.50 for a few pieces of bread and olives. We never asked for the olives, just bread for the soup. Not a biggie, but would recommend that bread be gratis.

My husband and I have been trying out different restaurants all over the city of Toronto. This was our first visit to Aria and unfortunately it will be our last. Personally speaking I'm pretty good in the kitchen, after having dinner at Aria I'm certain I can cook better than what the chef cooked up for our dinner - and I'm not even a professional chef. I would not recommend this restaurant for good food. The service was good and all the staff were really friendly. Hopefully this place considers getting new chefs as I think that is what is hurting their business.

I went on a Friday night over the hristmas period when ghere was no Leafs or Raptors game, so og was very quiet - and it was simply awesome. Nic3 fo go to an Italian restaurant and be served by someone from Italy! Gnocchi and Osso Bucco are off the chart.

The service was awful! The server did not know how to open a $100 bottle of wine, she did not know the food menu or the wine menu (struggled giving us suggestions and refused to give my friend and I allergy information when we asked about a "secret ingredient").

To be fair the first time we dined here it was five stars all the way and that is the reason we came back. This time we did not have as good an experience. The scallops we ordered came out raw in the middle so we didn’t eat them, waiter came back 10 min later and didn’t even ask about why we had not eaten them. He did order them again and this time they are more cooked but still not good. We didn’t say anything this time. Then one of our mains was Risotto and it was startchy and undercooked. This was very surprising as the first time we had the risotto it was amazing. The rest of the food was okay but nothing worth the price of a $300 dinner for two. Not sure if they changed the chef from the summer to now but we will not be returning to find out.
