    Wonderfully delicious food. Heard about Aida's closing so we wanted to have one last dinner to saw farewell. It was by far the best meals we've had - from the appetizers to dessert. Thank you Aida Bistro.

    Aida's is by far my favorite place to spend time with close friends and family. The owners and staff make sure the entire experience from start to finish is a time to remember. While the exceptional food and wine pairings is a story in itself, it is the moments I get to talk with the owners and staff that has become one of the things that both me and my family greatly appreciate.

We celebrated the birthday of a family member who was given a dessert with candle and a card signed by the staff. Great food, Great service A Real Winner!!

    This luncheon was wonderful in so many ways. We were the only table being served for lunch at that time. And having the uninterrupted time to spend with Mary, reminiscing about the impact that she and Joe have had on the Howard County. We all ordered pasta plates to celebrate the original homemade "star" of Aida. Ray and Joa BonGiorni Elizabeth Henzey

    AIDA Bistro & Wine BarResponded on November 13, 2022Glad you enjoyed the entrees and thanks for your feedback. The creme brulee is one of our guest's favorites. It would be helpful to know what you mean by over done and to let us know before you left so we could fix it.

    Extremely loud and not much ambiance. Mahi was good but the linguini was flavorless. My pork porterhouse was cooked fine but sauce was sickeningly sweet. I think this place is trying to be high end but doesn’t have the food or atmosphere to get there.

    As always, the food was absolutely delicious, and they accommodated all of our dietary restrictions with care. As someone who can't eat gluten or dairy, it's a rare joy to have so many really yummy options at a restaurant! The service was wonderful - everyone was kind and attentive. I've been coming here for birthdays and anniversaries for several years, and we're already planning to come back for my friend's birthday next month!
