Food is good (the truffle eggs beneditct are super yummy!). Pricey considering how much food you get. Gets super crowded during weekends.

Look no further for an intimate farm-to-market restaurant to create a most memorable wedding day and dining experience. Our daughter's ceremony was recently held at the Aurora and the staff was amazing in the speed by which they turned the wedding seating into elegant dining areas. Each employee was attentive to every detail. The meal was paced perfectly, the wines... More

The atmosphere is pleasent, nice garden setting. It was a rainy night and the ceiling was leaking on our party. The hostess knew this after we moved and seated the next party at the same wet table, only to move them after they complained. Te portions were small and somewhat pricey. SK

I had heard great things about Aurora, so today I and a friend ventured over from Manhattan to try it. The restaurant itself is charming with lovely additional outdoor seating. There is a 3 course $20 prix fixe menu which offers a glass of wine for an additional $3 charge. $3!!!!!! Honest. And, in our case, that $3 selection was... More

Had lunch yesterday with my family in Aurora. The courtyard was a lovely setting in the sunshine and we had an excellent ragu.

When my wife's cousin was coming to town to visit with another cousin who lives in Williamsburg, we agreed to meet there for brunch, and went to Aurora. We had a great time, and felt that it had a real relaxed homey feel to it.

I have been here at least 5 or 6 times when I come to visit my daughter. It has a nice selection and the food is very well made and of quality. I am really pretty picky about my Italian food because I cook and am pretty good at it. So, not to be snobbish , but I enjoy restaurants... More

Went for brunch--nice place, good service and pleasant staff. The dishes are fresh and well prepared. Loved the prosciutto! The outside space is very nice, but we could not eat there due to a private party, but I would go back again to sit there and try other menu items

We just happened to settle in at Aurora after visiting the BK Flea, and we ended up having a delicious time! The place was full, but we were seated right away on the outdoor covered patio area. It is a nice & green dining space with bright natural light. Excellent coffee, generous portions and really scrumptious menu! The only draw... More
