I had dinner at Aura on a Saturday evening with a fairly large group of friends (9 of us). The service was excellent even with a large group from the moment we were greeted by the hostess all the way through desert. Because we had such a large group, we odered a variety of appetizers- all of which were very good. In particular the Surf and Turf (beef short ribs and scallops) was OUTSTANDING. I also had the Aura salad which was very fresh and the mix of fruit (apple), nuts, and leafy greens was spot on. As for the entrees, I would have been happy with any of the 6 different entrees we ordered (one benefit of a large party... you can sample more of the menu). The presentation was very nice- nothing over the top but very nice. Most importantly, the food was delicious, prepared just right, and the portions are sized properly. Everything was cooked perfectly. The waiter also made some excellent wine recommendations that perfectly complimented the meal. We also share a few deserts but I didn't indulge... but it was very tempting! All in all, it's one of the best restaurants in the MoCity - Sugarland area and one of the few that offers the perfect mix of good food, local flavor (not a chain like everytihng else out here...), and a nice atmosphere. Perfect for just about any occasion.
Pros: Great food, excellent service
Cons: Some might find the entree selections a little limited if none of the specials are to your liking
