Aria Tuscan Grill
This is the ultimate date night spot in the heart of Queen City Center in uptown. My husband I called ahead for reservations. We got there 15 minutes early and were seated promptly. The bench where we were seated was not very comfortable so I would recommend a table with regular chairs. Our server was Matt and he provided fantastic service. We ordered the following: meatballs for appetizer, kale salad, lemon ginger fizz cocktail and a corona to start. I originally ordered the vintage Negroni but I didnt not like that and had the lemon fizz per Matts recommendation. The meatballs were very delicious and fresh!! The lemon fizz is alcoholic, but not too strong with a hint of sweet. For entrees we had chicken parmigiana and the braised lamb dish. WOW! Please try these 2, they will not disappoint. Ambiance was very New York, swanky/sexy. I would recommend this place for a relaxing date night if you dont mind spending $$$. Parking in a deck is probably best with a brisk wall to the restaurant.
Went here for the first time with friends. We were going to the Spectrum to see the Charlotte Horten's basketball game and this establishment was in walking distance. We were very impressed with the atmosphere. Our waiter was very helpful. I gave 1 less star because it took a long time before our entree arrived. Thankfully we had ordered appetizers. I was unable to eat all my food but the waiter put it in the fridge and I picked it up after the gave. One thing to remember they validate parking. Would definitely come back again when we're not in a hurry.
The service and food are fantastic! The atmosphere is very comfortable and chic without being stuffy. The food was superb. Great date night! My only complaint is the tables are very close to each other, just something to be aware of.
Went to this restaurant for queens feast. The food was really good and the service was 10/10. The ambiance and lighting of the restaurant was nice and the music was just right. Aria was a lot bigger than I thought. The window to see into the kitchen was awesome. I will be back.
My friend and I made a reservation for restaurant week. We were seated at the upper level and it was a bit noisy as there was a wedding going on right behind us w/ a live band. Our waiter was fun and attentive. The food was a 4/5 for us. I dont remember the wine we got but it was AMAZING! Overall, I would come back and its well worth your funds. The only downside was the complementary valet parking. There was only one person working that evening and we waited 25-30 minutes for our car. Im not sure if there was an event the night we went, but it was frustrating. See the tiktok I made on the evening @sydneyc23 :)
