    From the first step outside the lift till the last second all experience was brilliant. This is mine second time in Aera, and second time with Server Ajay. He provides magnificent service and made our lunch more special. Food is delicious (and all synonyms): I took medium rare tenderloin, my husband took striploin and meat was melting in our mounts! Beef tartare is something incredible! Definitely will come back!

    A great view with unbelievable great service. We ordered the steak, lamb, sable fish, burrata salad, artichoke, steak tartar and shrimp cocktail. Everything was amazing except the shrimp cocktail which had no value for the price and taste.. Highly recommend the restaurant

    The hostesses really were not very friendly. They wanted to leave me in a bar table in the kitchen when I clearly had a note of the view I wanted to seat. I arrived 10 minutes before, and they passed on to other people who arrived 10 minutes after me. But one of the managers and the waiter were very attentive at all times.

    we were there to celebrate anniversary. I wrote on my reservation we want a seat with good view . But when we arrive , they send us to a very dark inside area ( no any view at all) I asked them possible to change to a better view seats ? They seams very unpatience and tell me to get the seat we will have to pay . But from here , there’s no where says I could pay . Then I ask them to show me how to pay so next time I will pay for a good view seat . The girl at front very inpatient and even a little rude , told me I need to pay through their website . . I end up decide not to eat there . Very disappointed experience and not sure if it’s legal to pay for a seat lol
