Our waitress was OUTSTANDING! Food was excellent. Had not eaten at Arni's in a long time. We use to frequent old 86th location because close to our work place. We were in front area by windows. Only thing slightly negative I heard was some folks were cold, little drafty. I would eat there again in a heartbeat!!!

We had excellent waitress who was very accommodating! Food was good - loved the mushrooms and garlic cheese bread appetizers - great to share. Cobb salad was all right, but I've had better. We were in booth right on edge of bar, but it was surprisingly quiet there on a Friday early evening, so 3 of us were able to visit...

Have always enjoyed the pizza here. Our order was delayed for some reason but the manager offered us free garlic bread while we waited. Appreciated this gesture although our order came just moments later.

Arni's at River Ridge never disappoints. My friends and I go there about once a month and have been doing so for a few years. The food is always excellent, as is the service. We always sit in the bar (to avoid all the children in the other part of the restaurant), and are never rushed or hassled in any way. We probably spend 2 hours eating, drinking and chatting. It's a great place to meet friends and relax.

Popped in for an Arni's Jr Saturday night, had reservations and didn't wait long to be seated even though there were tons of people there. Several very large tables near us with kids, but the noise wasn't deafening, at least. In spite of the large crowd, we got our salads quickly. Enjoyed them as always and then skidaddled.

I remember going THE Arni’s at Market Square with my mom, when I was a kid in the early 70s. It was just down from Fannie Mays and I didn’t go to one without visiting the other. Arni’s is still my favorite pizza and the Arni’s Jr salads are delicious . The last time I was at the original Arni’s was in high school. A friend took me there as payment for making new bumper brackets in shop class for her car. Nothing against the New Albany, Monticello, Greenwood or the 96th Street restaurants, but the pizza just seemed to taste better on the Formica and chrome tables at Market Square.

Been here many times and it never disappoints. Jillian is the best server ever. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Drinks are plentiful and also at a reasonable price. Only problem was they ran out of our favorite scotch. Maybe that was our fault. Oops.

First time visit to this restaurant. Not very impressed. Our server spoke and acted as if she did not want to be there and it was a pain in the butt to be waiting on us. This server made my first experience at this restaurant my last. I will not return.

I gave my experience at Arni's a 3 star only because my previous experiences there have been great. I reserved a table for 10 people and called to adjust the time of the reservation earlier in the day. The hostess said no problem. We arrived at 4:30pm. The restaurant was not busy and should have been seated right away. Out table for 10 was not ready and the waiters had to move tables together. It really should have been ready for us. I had a reservation and called to confirm. We ordered lots of different items. My favorite is always the pizza. So, I ordered pizza to share with two other people. The pizza came out luke warm. My husband memntioned the temperature of the pizza to our waiter , Justin, and he didn't seem to really care. He said sorry about that. We had to ask for refills on drinks a lot. Just not what I have experienced before at Arni's . We had family in from out of town and thought they would enjoy the food. It was just ok this time.

They made a mistake on the pizza order. The waitress was aware before we had to say anything and as she brought out the incorrect pizza immediately let us know the correct one was coming but we could start on the incorrect one at no charge. Handled excellently!

Picked this restaurant for gluten free menu. Pizza (which is an Udi's crust) breadsticks and soup was the menu. I ordered chicken and rice soup which was cream based. Glad I asked for a double check of the ingredients- it was NOT gluten free. Not an apology from the manager or server and I had to ask for the soup to be taken off the bill. The service was terrible, drinks not filled, and the food from the regular menu as my family described it was the same from GFS.

If you're Gluten Free due to health reasons ...do not eat here.

Arni's is a family favorite. The pizza is great as well as the salads.
Today I decided to go with the Stromboli, it was great. I love the small sausage.
Service was good and all went well.

Service was subpar. Waitress did not have answers to any of our questions. Including ingredients in menu items and what the house wines were.....these answers should be known. Slow to bring bill.
Food was very good. Went for an elementary and we're sad to not be seated in the main dining area where all the other kids were. 😕 .
