The food was amazing! They’re a little too much when it’s comes to covid tho, still requiring masks on patrons and they have tables with like 10 bottles of sanitizer on them. It’s a little bit of an overkill but the food made up for it. Hopefully they will let us be Americans soon and let us have the option of wearing a mask or not!

Glad you enjoyed the food and appreciate your support. To clarify re sanitization & masks, on Friday the last of our team members received their 2nd shot. By July 1, 100% will be fully vaccinated. Our team voted to continue wearing masks & asking our guests to do the same. Until then, we ask our guests to wear masks inside the restaurant. In July, mask wearing is optional for our team & fully vaccinated guests. Sanitation is always a part of keeping our team & guests safe.

Server forgot it was a birthday occasion. Potatoes too salty on short ribs entree . The cannoli was awful. Disappointing. Would like for this restaurant to succeed but.....

Date night. Very bright for a romantic evening. Wanted more romance. I had eggplant Parm and honestly I'm not sure what it was. The eggplant appeared to be chopped up in breading which was deep fried. Never had it that way.
Wine was good.

It was great to get back to Aida Bistro after a year of shutdown. It was a Monday night and there was only one server, Kelly, who acted as hostess and server. We waited a while for some aspects of the evening but since she was serving all the tables, any delay was totally understandable. The food was great! Looking forward to returning again as things open up

This was a lovely date night with my husband. We've been to Aida plenty of times before and know what to expect. As always, the food was delicious. We chose the prix fixe menu. Unfortunately, when we ordered a bottle of rose, our server said they didn't have any more bottles of rose. Our creme brulee dessert was very disappointing. It tasted good, but the size was for more fitting for my 3 year old. It was actually laughable. We've had it before, so I don't know why it was so tiny now. Seriously, it looked like a Costco sample. Our server was nice enough, but there was definitely room for improvement. For each course, she never knew who ordered which dish. Again, it's only two of us. Then, it literally took over 30 minutes to get our check. It was ridiculous. She just disappeared. I recommend Aida, but service could've been much better. And next time, we'll grab dessert from somewhere else on the way home.

Lobster roll and scallops were great. But the fresh linguini seafood dish was outstanding: light cream, balanced seasoning and perfectly cooked Lobster and shrimp.

The food was wonderful and they have really nice outdoor seating. It was actually pretty cold out for May when we ate there but they have great outdoor heaters so it was really comfortable sitting outside. The restaurant sits back a ways from the road so there wasn't any traffic noise. It was a great overall experience and I would definitely eat there again.

What part of perfect don't we understand. The food was excellent. The only criticism I have is that I'm gluten free. The GF pasta was a bit undercooked. But it was delicious. (A note to those who must eat gluten free--the menu at Aida's is quite extensive.) There were four of us and it was magnificent. The servers were fantastic. We had a 5:30 reservation and we sat and sat solving the problems of the world with our friends until 9:30. No one said a word. We sat outside and the heaters made it just right. In fact, I'm going back next week.

Wonderful reunion (after pandemic lockdown) lunch! Food & wine recommended were fabulous, including the "dinner to go" manicotti that I brought home. You won't be disappointed.
