Had reservations for 7:30 food was ok The roasted chicken that claimed to fall off the bone was dry. $46.00 for a steak for that price I could goto Carl Von Lugar's or Ruth's Chris. Service was good being we were the only ones... More

This is a hidden gem. I was here once before awhile ago and remembered it was around just a few days ago. I went there for dinner. The food was delicious and the staff was super friendly. We ended up eating on a night that was a little slower than usual and the server took time to sit and talk... More

My husband and I went there for a birthday celebration. My husband was skeptical but went along with it. He had a Japanese chop with mac & cheese. I had the Australian moon fish with a pesto sauce. We both enjoyed our meals. Very tasty. The waiter was very helpful. It is pricey, but a nice experience and the food... More

My wife and I came on a Friday night and we were HORRIFIED by the extremely poor service and lack of management. We were met by a rude and confused hostess who didn't know how long to tell us our wait to be seated was. We were seated after a half hour wait and from that point our waiter came... More

I would recommend Aurants to anyone who is tired of going to chain restaurants.Their menu is eclectic without being repulsive to the person with average dining tastes.It is a little pricey but the food was delicious!We did not have a wait time at all as other people have stated and the staff was friendly and courteous.

As others have reviewed Aurants is a mixed bag overall. The place is small and you have to try and check in at the end of a small bar next to the busy kitchen. There were about 8 ppl ahead of me and I couldn't tell if they were checked in and had no room without aggressively pushing forward which... More

Maybe my main problem was having high expectations? I have never heard anything bad about this place. Arrived at 7:20 for a 7:30 reservation. Seated at 7:40. Appetizers arrived at 8:20 (sautéed mushrooms and sausage wrapped in bacon). We were very hungry at that point. Did not receive entrees until almost 9:00. My sister in law and I received two...

AuRants. What can I say...oh I don't know..EVERYTHING! Voted BEST RESTAURANT in the Diamond City in 2016, Chef/Owner Dave Ciminelli has a unique and wide ranged menu with exotic ingredients that you can't get anywhere else in NEPA. AuRants is a Gastropub that's Separate from the Rest. I've been there a few times and each time gets better and better.... More

We have been wanting to give this place a try, it's about 45 min from where we live so it's one of those places that you have to make an effort to visit. NEPA perks had a $50 voucher for $25 so we figured we would try some place new. So happy that we did! The food was delish and... More

The service was so poor we ended up leaving. Really tried to give this place a chance but the service was so slow, 75 minutes and no entrees, it was painful. They were unapologetic which is unacceptable.
