Aria Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
I have eaten here many times but this time our food was over an hour to be served, one of the meals was wrong...they prepared another meal free of charge but one of my quests had to wait while the rest of us ate.
Very unlike times before, but maybe it was because we were there on a Sunday before a Leafs game.
The staff made every effort to make up for the mess up on the order which I would give them a 10 on .
Will still go back again as the food was good.
Great restaurant and very good food. Great ambiance.
Our server was neither personable nor prompt. We waited for our bill for 30 minutes and she passed by our table numerous times. It was not a great experience.
Great food, service felt rushed but at least they let us linger for a bit after clearing. Restaurant was very busy so I get they're trying to get people in and out quickly.
Good food and ambiance, not too loud, good for conversation. They were out of the one pasta dish I wanted to order, on a Saturday night.... Dish I ordered was good though. Will go back.
Amazing food and service. Staff were very friendly. Service was prompt without being too fast.
Hosted several clients for a business lunch, very convenient location and fantastic ambiance for an event, great wine list, good service, tasty food and noise level perfect for conversing.
I liked the restaurant. There were not many vegetarian options. Another guest was looking for either chicken or beef but they didn't have anything on the menu. That said everyone was happy with the meal they got.
We went prior to a Leafs game so it was busy, but it was still a nice place.
Excellent authentic Italian food, great wine list, professional service, would go back
Regular at this restaurant.
Was seated at table by kitchen door and bar. Very high traffic area. When I asked if we could move to another table was told they were all reserved for larger parties. A few minutes later another couple was seated by the window at a table that had been set for four!
Staff were incredibly rude.
There for dinner before a Raptors' game. Our friends were delayed but the servers ensured we all had great meals and a great experience, AND got us out in time for the game. Excellent menu, simple, enough variety to satisfy all types of eaters. Looking forward to returning.
We had a very sweet server who was helpful with the menu. In addition, other servers were also very attentive when filling up water, taking plates and etc. We had the reservation for 8:30 and left at 9:00, their service was quick but not in haste, the food was good but not plentiful. The rose cocktail was amazing! The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice and elegant with dim lighting and spacious. The complimentary bread was dry, however and getting seated was a bit confusing because we were standing there a little confused waiting for the server. But the servers and everyone were very nice.
Love the ambience with greet tasting food and portions were perfect.
Great place for a date night or to enjoy an evening out with friends ... love the atmosphere and decor and not too loud .
Love music playing in the foreground
Great Birthday celebration dinner with friends - food, wine and service were all great. Great drinks - I tried The Rose and loved it.
Perfectly timed as a pre-event meal with clients
Very slow event though we booked a 5pm dinner to have plenty of time before the game. Waited 30 mins to get a server. Then another 15 to get the drinks. Furthermore they failed to bring our appetizer. Missed the first period. Their apologies simply blamed other people for their failings. Truly disappointing as we were entertaining people from out of town.
We were looking for a good restaurant before the Raptors game. Aria was recommended to us. Food and service were excellent.
Loved the restaurant decor. Was quite annoyed about the washroom situation which you probably get quite often.
Food was good and fast service.
Big fan of being super close to acc - didn't have to stress about missing our concert that night!
We were well attended, however I would not ask for a table near the kitchen entry.
Online Reservation process very easy and without issue. Service outstanding as always. Food selection good.
The space is open and full of natural light. Easy to hear conversations at your own table. Food is original and noticeably creatively done on a daily basis. Service is outstanding. Attention to little things.
This is just a convenient place close to ACC. Food was subpar and grossly overpriced. I ordered risotto only to get a soupy undercooked rice that cost me $36 .....so yea.
The location is incredibly convenient to the ACC. We went there for dinner before a concert. The server was pleasant but seemed busy so we waited a while for our order to be taken. The food came out pretty quickly though. We were a party of two and one of us had the gnocchi which was amazing, but I had the seafood spaghetti which had the potential to be good, however, it was served at room temperature, so all the grease settled to the bottom. I would give it a second chance just for the convenient location and ambiance.
Booked before a concert and was extremely impressed. Go to many concerts in the area and will definitely go again!
The pasta which I ordered was small portion and filled with salt. Expensive for that small portion. Small white bread.. not worth it
Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and when we made the reservation we were asked if we were celebrating a special occasion. I typed in 25th Wedding Anniversary, thought someone at the restaurant would acknowledge it to us and they never did. Oh well 25 years married is no big deal....who knew?
That aside delicious meals, drinks and dessert would eat there again.
Accessibility re: Union Station, ACC, Rogers Centre
Great location, Good Food, Nice Staff, Great Wine list/Bar
Adequate. Aria is always adequate, never really astounding or amazing. Service is somewhat inattentive but if you assert yourself they most certainly respond.
Service was great. Beautiful place ... Surprisingly it wasn't very busy.
Even though there was plenty of room in the restaurant, we were put in a terrible spot close to the kitchen. We should have asked to be moved. Server was inattentive. Food was excellent thought
We picked it because it was on OpenTable and close to the Rogers Centre and the menu looked good! The food surpassed our expectations and honestly everything we had was unreal! We would highly recommend
During my last two experiences, I made reservations in advance but was still made to wait almost 20 mins for my table.
Excellent service and food, very nice décor and well situated next to Union Station and Air Canada centre. Also easy to find for out-of-town visitors. Enjoyed restaurant on my last visit to Toronto in December and very happy to return during my recent visit. Very busy evening, but with my reservation, I got a table very quickly and the service was excellent. Thank you.
Have been there a number of times and am always content with the food and atmosphere. Super convenient for watching shows at the ACC. Will gladly return.
For such a beautiful restaurant, the food quality and service should be improved. It wouldn't be hard to pay a little more attention to the details of the food including portion size, taste and training of staff. We chose the restaurant due to its proximity to the Acc, but would not go out of my way to return.
Menu on open table was outdated so our expectations were not met.
My husband and I had an early dinner. The hostess/waitress was warm and charming. Our experience was wonderful from the beginning. I enjoyed the sea bream. My husband loved the rack of lamb.
This is our second visit with a large group (14+) in as many months - both for birthdays. Our service the first time was 4/5 with a mild bit of attitude which is common is higher end downtown restaurants. But this visit the lady server was very blunt and dismissive for a very polite an quiet table. She refused to come back for a mains order, and told multiple people "no" she wouldn't come back to them as they weren't ready. The food was great, but Service dictates the feeling you leave with, and her attitude reflects the star level given. I'd like to note that the table still tipped above 15% as a courtesy to the amazing kitchen staff.
This restaurant is a beautiful place. Its conveniently located right outside of the Air Canada Centre. The seating was comfortable and the space was bright and tastefully decorated. Perfect place if you need to make a good impression on someone.
It is a little pricey, so wouldn't recommend for a casual outing as the feel of the place is more formal and higher end. The portions range from moderate to small. If you have a big appetite, you may want to order more than 1 thing.
over all good experience.
our waitress ( i want to say her name was Kelly, but i could be wrong ) was very polite, well put together and knowledgeable. She had good menu suggestions and always approached the table with a smile.
Overall a great dining experience for a business lunch. Only (small) issue was that the noise level was quite loud, making it difficult to carry a conversation without almost yelling.
