Restaurant description

An English garden in the heart of bustling Birmingham city centre, Aria is set under a glass atrium roof which floods the restaurant with natural light by day. As the sun sets, tiny lights in the surrounding trees begin to glow creating a romantic place to dine.

Serving exciting flavour combinations from breakfast through to dinner using fresh, seasonal, British produce, stars of the dinner menu are the 8oz Angus, grass feed, Irish beef fillet or the grilled sea bream. Indulgences for dessert include summer fruit crème brûlée, served with earl grey tea shortbread.

The intimate Aria bar comes alive from 5pm and serves English wines and exquisite local gins for an after work tipple or a pre-dinner drink. Performers take to the stage on a grand piano so guests can relax and enjoy light entertainment as they sample delights from the menu.

An earthy yet awe-inspiring setting, Aria on Broad Street is a 5-minute drive from Birmingham New Street Rail Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Probably the most appalling attempted dining experience we have ever had, After nearly 2 hours tackling the traffic we were late and hungry. Arrived at 6pm but still in plenty of time to eat and go to the Symphony Hall. The service was non existent. The room was cold. There were only 2 waiters on duty. Our orders were not taken for over 15 minutes. We did not get a drink, not even water, until 6.25. Our paltry starters arrived at 6.40 - 3 of us ordered the smoked salmon which was the smallest, least enjoyable starter we have ever had anywhere (including the Aria). By 7.05 no mains had arrived and we had to abandon ship fed up and hungry. The last time we ever use the Aria. Supposed to be five star! The only consolation was that on returning after the show to settle up, the bill had been cancelled. NB: The waitress was not at fault. She kept chasing the kitchen but to no avail.

    We have dined with friends at the Aria for several years now as part of our annual concert trip to Birmingham. However, this year we were very disappointed with our meal. As usual we ordered the 3 course pre concert meal and all enjoyed the starters which were salmon and soup. We all ordered the same main dish of chicken and morels which itself was well cooked but the vegetables served with with it spoilt the dish. I prefer vegetables not to be over cooked but the carrots served were virtually raw and the fennel stringy and difficult to cut and eat. Two of my party ordered the panna cotta for desert and there was so little on the plate they actually thought that the main desert was missing! They were so disappointed that I felt it only fair to share my cheese board with them. For the overall cost of £194, we were all quite dissatisfied and sadly will now find a different venue for next year.

    Afternoon tea. Extremely disappointed. Shortage of staff meant we waited over one and a half hours before being served. Having experienced quite a lot of afternoon teas, this was nowhere near good value at £50 for 2 people.

    Amazing afternoon tea with a wide choice of teas (complementary refill). Finger sandwiches, custard cream and blackberries desserts were delicious. Our waiter (Kabir) was welcoming and kind. We unfortunately waited a long time despite our booking. Scones could be lighter. We regret not to enjoy a view on canals

    Excellent food and the service was exemplary. Kind, efficient and very accommodating. This was a very special occasion. - a reunion with university friends whom met 40 years ago. The chef and waitress brought us a decorated plate acknowledging the occasion with complimentary chocolates. Very much appreciated. Will definitely dine there again. Thank you

    Ordered from the pre show menu. Absolutely delicious! My husband thought the chicken was one of the best dishes he’d ever had.
