Went for New Year’s Eve and the food and service was fabulous. The menu, though fix priced selection, had ample selections. Our waiter was wonderful and so accommodating. The rest of the staff was also fabulous. I would never hesitate to go back and look forward to returning for their regular menu.

The food was outstanding. We were in town for the holiday and made a reservation, but I would gladly make the hour drive just to eat here again. The owners were so kind and walked around the restaurant to check on each of the diners and ensure their food and experience were perfect. Would HIGHLY recommend again. Amazing food and service.

We have seen this place over the years and never was interested in going in. As a family who loves to try new places and eat out every weekend, we gave it a try. We are upset we did not try it years ago. We will make sure this remains in our rotation. The food was excellent and the selection of "adult" drinks was a definite plus.

We came to have have dinner for an impromptu date night. We are still not comfort eating indoors, so we chose the outdoor heated seating. You can see that COVID protocols are taken seriously here. Our food was fresh, hot, and super delicious. You can tell they use quality ingredients. The owner stopped by the table check on us, and was open to questions and feedback. The sommelier gave great wine recommendations, and our server was attentive without hovering or rushing us. My only complaint is that we both ate way too much. Lol! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful cuisine and plenty of space between tables—felt completely safe eating indoors.
This is creative Northern Italian and Mediterranean food, out of the ordinary. Great wine choices too.

Food was like a 2/10 for most of us. Nothing special done or said for my moms birthday dinner. Not many options to choose from and portions were on the smaller side. Not of the ingredients tasted fresh.

AIDA always has had outstanding food and service, but this was our first trip back after covid. Well a great thing gor even better with the heated outdoor patio. Our family of 4 sat comfortably outside in 40 degree weather and the service and experience was just as good as what the indoor diners received. We'll be back soon.

Caesar wrap and Shrimp Po Boy were great luncheon selections, as was the accompanying Anne Amie Pinot Noir. Dining outside in 40 degree weather works great too with the set up on the patio and overhead heater! GREAT!!!

THANK YOU to the wonderful staff at AIDA for making my parents' anniversary so very special. Everyone from the servers to the hostess was so friendly, helpful, and polite. They made sure our water glasses were always full. They checked on us to make sure everything was to our liking. They even gave my parents a complimentary cannoli with a card signed by the staff. The food was delicious, though I have never had a mediocre meal at AIDA. This was also the best outdoor dining experience I have had. Tables were very spread out, and there were plenty of heaters to allow for a comfortable dining experience. My parents' only complaint was why I had not introduced them to AIDA sooner! We will definitely be returning soon.

Easy to find location in office park with ample close parking. We had an outdoor reservation and, even though it was 7pm in November, the overhead heater made it comfortable. (We didn't go inside but the dining room looked relaxed and comfortable.) Excellent service, large menu, upscale offerings. Every bit of the food was delicious. Decent sized cocktail, wine, and beer list. Very small dessert menu but the cannolis were excellent.

The only down side is that fact that the restaurant, itself, was a bit on the chilly side. I had to keep my jacket on. But after many unusually warm autumn days I suspect they were caught off guard by the sudden drop in temperature and hadn't adjusted the thermometers. The food is always excellent at Aida's. In the past I have ordered the Seared Salmon Marsala and it is delicious. But since it was lunchtime, I ordered the Aida Cuban sandwich. The unusual pairing of roasted pork with ham and cheese wasn't quite what I was expecting. It may be an acquired taste and others may enjoy it, but I was a little disappointed. But I will give a shout out to the amazing Espresso Creme Brulee we ordered for dessert!! It was outstanding, and I would order that dessert again and again.... and again!

We ordered Brussel sprouts, calamari, fries, and crab dip for starters. All were great, the serving size was a bit smaller than I am used to. For dinner we ordered multiple crab sandwiches, crab cakes, pasta, and salad. Food again was good, out server forgot to put in the order for the salad. The desserts were great, canoli, hazelnut ice cream, and bread pudding. The mocha creme brûlée's was okay, not much to write about. All in all food was good, service left a lot to be desired. Maybe in COVID times we should get used to this, however since we go out so much less during these times, it's disappointing to get poor service when you venture out.
