Went here on a date recently. The atmosphere is cozy, and the staff are very friendly.
I had the charred octopus, shrip tacos and duck spring rolls. Each dish was amazing! The shrimp tacos were especially good, it had mango and a coconut batter, both flavours can overpower a dish, but in this they complemented the shrimp without overpowering the taste of the shrimp. Everything was fantastic, very pleased!

Cozy and small restaurant. We did not book but they allow us to wait while I see them not taking guests without booking as the waiting time will be too long. Service is good and their tapas are good. We enjoyed the dinner despite the waiting time.

Wow! This was our second visit in the last year and we were impressed once again. Aroma has become our favourite place in Ottawa, because every single dish we've tried there was amazing. Great attention to detail in the kitchen and dining room: interesting ingredient combinations, dishes beautifully presented, and first-rate service too. We'll be back, because it's hard, in Ottawa, to find a restaurant that is so consistently good. The only minor drawback is that we found the dining room quite loud.

We were looking for a small restaurant with a cozy atmosphere, and tapa (meze) style dining. We did not expect the place to be so noisy - not sure why people felt they had to yell across the tables. Maybe dimming the lighting would have helped. The service was a bit slow, but our server appeared run off her feet.

Food we loved; the Beetroot towers were exceptional,with the Fromaggio di Capra Pesto a close second. The Moshari Ginger (beef tenderloin) was a disappointment as the beef was not melt in your mouth, although the pesto sauce was superb. For dessert, we chose the server's recommendation of Chocolate Natallas. She compared it to chocolate mousse,but it was simply chocolate custard. Our first choice -assorted ice cream was not available. Maybe we just had an unlucky evening, but based on this one experience we would not go back.

Lucky to get a table for 2 at the last minute. What a find! Friendly, knowledgeable staff help make this tapas type dining experience very enjoyable. The food is beautifully presented, fresh and tasty. A real must try in Ottawa.
