Every dish was excellent. Each item on the plate were flavorful and delicious. We had the pumpkin ravioli, sea bass and lamb dish. Everyone in my party would highly recommend them. The ambiance is low light and intimate and great for dates. If you’re going for another occasion it’s wonderful just the same.

Pleasantly surprised at how nice this place was. Service was fantastic and so was the food. They went all out to bring us a congratulatory plate with desert and excellent presentation. My 4/5 has to do with accessibility and where the restaurant is located. The restaurant is on the second floor with stair access only. The restrooms are on the third floor. Anyone with mobility issues or seniors may have problems dining here. When we left, someone from the street began summoning us and the parking lot has no security. There’s also confusion as to where exactly the entrance to the restaurant is. There’s the ‘Aoili Marketplace’ downstairs with clear signage but it’s on the other end of the building with no entrance to the restaurant. Walking around the compound looking for the entrance felt unsafe.

Food and service were top notch! I celebrated my birthday here, and I am also gluten free, which can be difficult to accommodate, but the staff made it a wonderful experience.

Staff was extremely courteous, attentive, and warm. Staff was also very knowledgeable about the menu and wine pairing. Food was fantastic, appealing to every sense and presented beautifully.

I personally don’t think the food is worth the money . I ordered an 8oz fillet mignon medium only to get an extremely well done fillet , so over cooked it was dry and chewy , the fillet was also over salted . This was my anniversary dinner and I was quite disappointed given that Aioli is rated as the No. 1 restaurant in Trinidad .

I also booked my reservation on open table , when I called the restaurant two days before to confirm they had my reservation they were completely unaware of it . If a restaurant is using an external service for booking they should at least ensure they check the service for bookings.

Also sitting in close proximity to my husband and I was another couple who were extremely loud and obnoxious and no one on the wait staff would ask them to lower their voices they even participated in conversations with the couple adding to the extreme high noise level.

After my experience there I will never return to Aioli .

Soup and foods were served room temperature and taste not bad but nothing special and not at all for that price. Ambiance and service quiet and good, is only positive
