Arni's Restaurant River Ridge Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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. 😕 .
The server was definitely the worst server ever!! The Manager knew the server was bad and would not make eye contact with out table. Apps where good pizza ok, cheesesteak and Strombol was nasty. Please do not eat here. We dine out three times per week and this place is horrible.
So with school out and it staying light so late, my family's dining schedule has already extended past my comfort zone. But being the father/husband my opinion is irrelevant and we went out to Arni's with friends after 9 on saturday. It was only my second time to the indianapolis location and I had forgotten how magical their menu seletion is! From wings to tacos to sandwiches to pasta....and their salad, that might have crack in it it's so addictive, was out of this world. Great service, great setting and even better food. I'm coming back soon!
We had a mid afternoon lunch party of 9 with 2 teens and a small child. Everyone the loved the food and due to the time of day it was very quiet Location was easy to access and prices were very reasonable. food quality was very good. No complaints! Our entire party was happy!
We had about 30 people from thew office here for dinner. This is very popular with the office personnel because the menu has whatever you feel like eating, and it is all good. The bar also can create any drink that you may want. This is a great place and has been for a long time. You cannot go wrong eating here.
I made reservations for 10 and we ended with 19! Not only were they accommodating but they did not miss a beat with service. All 19 employees enjoyed the food--several took home dessert! Portion size is amazing...everyone there was pleased. I will certainly bring my employees here again!
We had a party of 12 and were following up lunch with a holiday gift "White Elephant" exchange. I had called ahead and they had the pre-ordered appetizers out to us shortly after being seated. They also provided an extra table for us to place gifts on and put us (at our request) a bit away from the other diners. Linda, the manager, greeted us upon arrival and checked back during lunch to make sure all was OK. Our server, Jesse, did an excellent job of keeping up with the group's requests and provided great, friendly service. We'll definitely return when the occasion arises!
