Aida Cannoli (3)
Shrimp & Crab in a Tarragon-Lobster Cream Sauce, Fresh Spinach, Cherry Tomatoes
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.
Great experience! And numerous gluten free options!
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!!!
Wonderful dinner selection and outstanding service.
Melanie was an excellent server
AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar is a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious, and there is something on the menu for everyone. Will definitely return!
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.
Will do again, 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 a great Barbera Wine🍷❤️! Service was Bolognese and Chicken Parm 👏👍👏👍! Can’t wait to visit 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.
Excellent food snd service.
Outstanding meals at our table for3. We all agreed every dish was delicious with high quality ingredients & great flavor. Wait staff offered great service too
Great Place to eat and food was excellent. Selection of food was also very good
Everything we ordered was delicious- both the eggplant and chicken parmigiana were outstanding. The wine by the glass was delicious and the desserts were too good to pass up. Definitely try the homemade ice cream. We’ve been several times over the years and tonight’s dinner did not disappoint. We had a wide range of ages and tastes. And the service was excellent too
we had blackend mahi, blackened salmon, and vegi-burger
+ marguerita flatbread
and we LOVED the heated ample outdoor dining - a major plus during the pandemic
we will be returning!
Blackened mahi was delicious as was burrata and calamari starter. Wonderful Pinot noir and terrific service. Will be back soon!
Great as always!
Good experience & great meals. Hostess was able to fit us in even though we unexpectedly were running an hour late.
This was a girl's day out, and our first time there. Our server was excellent, the drinks sublime, and the food spectacular. Nothing better than fresh pasta. Excited to go back and try their date night menu.
Food, wine, and service all quite good. Interior ambiance could be improved — it’s a little diner-ish for an upscale casual place. Prices, especially for the wine, very reasonable.
The food and service were fine, and were both accommodating of my husband's Celiac, but I found the atmosphere just a bit "sterile," and not in the best sense of that word.
Thanks for your feedback. We have many regular customers with celiacs so am happy we were able to accommodate your husband. Not sure what you mean about the atmosphere being sterile. We have made changes to our indoor seating to accommodate our guests who want more space in between tables. The art on our walls are from local artists, and change each quarter. We also have sanitization stations in plain view in our dining spaces. Perhaps you can call me so I understand better your feedback.
Really great spot!! Super cute atmosphere, lots of great options - big fan of all the gluten free options too! Food was fabulous
Wonderful lunch with the ladies. Great day for an outside lunch
Excellent service and food.
The appetizers were overdone with sauce! The service was abysmal - the waitress never checked up on us and we were waiting a long time (>20min). We actually ended up leaving because we were fed up!
Sorry to hear about your experience, thanks for letting us know. Re the appetizers, we were training new staff on Friday, spoke with the Chef and that saucing issue is fixed. Also spoke with your server, one of our best. When you arrived, she made 2 attempts to take your order and on her third attempt, you ordered. This appears to have been a miscommunication on our part. Your experience isn’t an indication of how we operate, give me a call at 410-953-0500 so we can make it right. Joe B.
Excellent wine and decent food. Dined outdoors but the airport noise was a bit much. Would try again indoors
I’ve been to this restaurant several times. Yesterday was the first time a hostess was unpleasant to us. Not sure if it was a bad night for her but she was truly rude.
Excellent food and the wine recommendation was perfection! This one glass lady had 3😁
Great birthday dinner with my dear friend
We were from out of state and were really fortunate to select AIDA for lunch. Great food, great wine and welcoming environment. We highly recommend for anyone traveling to the Baltimore / Washington area.
So happy to come back to our favorite place and celebrate a birthday. The food was fabulous. Nice very reasonably priced bottle of Italian white - one of Joe's finds.
Aida is BOTH a neighborhood (Howard County) treasure and regional top restaurant. As usual - the made there pasta is to die for - perfect. We are grateful they have (so far) made it through this incredibly difficult time for restaurant owners
Thanks to all. And to the readers, go treat yourselves - again, or for the first time.
The food was excellent, and the wine was served at the proper temperature. Many/most restaurants in the US seem to serve Whites too cold and Reds too warm; at AIDA, the wine was served at the perfect temperature. While our server did an excellent job, and the food was delicious, food preparation took an inordinately long time. I suspect this might be due to a staffing issue as the restaurant was not overly busy at the time. Additional outdoor heating for the side patio would be a nice addition.
Family dinner with plates for everyone
Great time an excellent servers
Always a pleasure to dine at AIDA Bistro! Food was fantastic!! Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
What a wonderful find! Reminds me of the long gone "Como Inn" in Chicago. I highly recommend Aida.
Really good food, outdoor dining is in the parking lot next to a busy road and you can hear the airplanes from BWI, but really enjoyed it.
Chef made my pasta to order. It was so fresh and delicious. The Wine on tap was amazing. The service is unmatched. This is my second visit, AIDA Bistro doesn't disappoint.
