  • "Food was fair Went for Valentines day dinner. My steak was tough and not worth the $47 price. Was dissapointed that there was a pre set menu, so not many options. Had to ask for bread twice. We asked our waiter if he had any reccomendations and he said he doesnt eat the food."

  • "We arrived after making reservations a few hours earlier on Opentable. They said they don't keep track of new reservations in evening. We were sat quickly, but it was annoying."

  • "The owners of Aroojis were amazing, super nice and accommodating. They helped make our evening special and memorable. The food was so delicious and the wine was great. I would recommend this restaurant for a romantic night, special occasion, large party or just a night out for some great italian food. We are from Italy and we loved the food."

  • "Overall the food was good. I would suggest any of the seafood. The service however was very slow."

  • "I like Arooji's. I really do. But I'm not sure why. I dine there every few months hoping that it will improve--more memorable food or professional service. But it doesn't. The Ambience is great but that's all. New Year's Eve the fixed price menu was boring as was the food. The waiter tried but maybe it was his first night in a high-class restaurant. Example-- we had coffee after dinner and it was promptly brought. After a couple minutes we had to ask for cream and sugar. The sugar was brought to the table and the waiter apologized that they were out of cream (?) and asked if milk was acceptable. Of course it was and so was provided. And then we had to ask for spoons. With the wine, for the cost we should have gone to The Palm."

  • "It was a busy Monday night at Arooji's (though not so busy that every table was occupied at all times). Bread was hard to come by (the waiter said it was "by request only", as they were running low -- from the scraps we received in our basket, I guess he was right). The Caprese salad was good and well-composed. Then we waited: we didn't get entrees (both quick-cooking shellfish dishes) until ~35 min. after finishing the salad. And what we received was underwhelming. My wife's shrimp were overcooked, the dish generally bland. My seafood medley included overcooked, tough calamari, unopened clams (should never have made the plate), overcooked shrimp, and scallops with adductor muscles attached (though they were the best part of the dish)."

  • "It was Sat 9pm. When my husband ordered ice tea the server said they were out of tea bags. We ordered our entrees and here the waiter comes back to announce they don't have the veal and adds "we haven't had it for a year"...He brought our salads and bread but when we requested extra later again he said they had no more bread. My side dish was mushrooms which yet again he comes back and apologize they were out. The entrees arrived with the side dishes on the wrong plates so the waiter brought some extra spaghetti on a plate. Ok, guess what is the answer when we asked for extra sauce? Yes, they had no more sauce! We declined a free dessert offer and we will never go back there because the manager was aware and never talked to us!"

  • "Food was good but not notable. The pasta dish was excellent, however the skewers(steak and shrimp) were dry and condiments were burnt. The rolls were yeast and slightly overcooked. The salad was very good and fresh and I highly recommend the creamy balsamic dressing. With attention to detail and some more notable bread offering Aroojis will be a place to GO!! The wine list is good but very pricey with nothing under $32 a bottle and only 2-3 of those, a little variety in price would be better."

  • "For starters, the restaurant did not give me the table that I had requested when I made my reservation. The restaurant was practically empty at peaking dining hours on Saturday night. The menu hadn't changed any since I had last visited in the Summer. There was only one special and the kitchen substituted the type of pasta we ordered with another less satisfactory pasta without a heads up to the server or us diners. When called to the server's attention, we were offered a complimentary dessert."

  • "They seems didn't see us on opentable reservation. We got seat fine. Food was just okay doesn't excit us go back."

  • "The food was exceptional as was the ambiance. The service however was very slow, much like they do in restaurants in Europe. They allow you to take your time and don't rush you. If you want the experience of fine European dining I highly recommend Arooji's."

  • "Overall the food was very good. The only suggestions that I would give is to improve the timing of the service. Started off very good and then got slower and slower. However, the wait staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome."

  • "Avoid this place at all costs. One server for the entire dining room. 3 hours to get appetizers and dinners and that followed a 45 min wait to have our order taken. Stay away!"
