Arooji's Wine Room - Ballantyne
Several Italian restaurants have opened in South Charlotte the past couple of years, but Arooji’s is the one we always find ourselves coming back to. One of the best wait staffs of any restaurant we’ve been and the food is always great.
My wife and I had dinner there last night and start to finish everything was just perfect.
Great wait staff, Ray! Loved all of the selections~delicious!
Very enjoyable dinner. Quiet, cozy and excellent food. friendly attentive staff.
This was the first time that the wait for the bread was unusually lengthy which is odd for this establishment. Additionally, the request for more oil and vinegar was such that I used up was originally given to me and made the same request from two different people before more was finally brought. When I looked over my shoulder, the person who I originally asked was entertaining another table. Again, very odd. The third aspect to this is that the second guest ordered an appetizer which she was planning to enjoy as her entree, but they brought it out when they brought my appetizer. So, it sat there as I split my appetizer with her. This was a dinner made awkward by the servers.
Great service and food!
The service was wonderful, right from being greeted at the door to paying the check. The food was delicious! This has been a favorite for some time. Really nice atmosphere as well.
The food and service was excellent! We don’t get out much, so it was a nice treat. Prices are reasonable especially considering how good everything was. Absolutely loved it!
Excellent service compliments the excellent food. Generous portions with great eye appeal combine with wonderful flavors. NOT just another Italian restaurant, but a true Italian experience. Highly recommended.
The Steak was very good as was the Lobster Ravioli. Service was a little slower this time due to a couple larger parties and us being just 2 but not troubling.
Always a good meal and one of our regular places for Italian near Ballantyne
Have been here twice before. This visit, service was good but the food was not as good as previous visits. Will think twice about returning again. Dining room was about 1/2 full, but noise level was very high making conversation difficult. Room has high ceilings which causes sound to be amplified.
Aroojli's is quiet a little gem. I had moved away from the Charlotte area back in" 96". I can't believe they ha e been open for 17 yrs. The food was amazing, nice atmosphere and wait staff never told us they closed. We were there 40 min. After closing and they just let me and my date enjoy our dinner and conversation. Thank you Angelo!
We loved this place!! The head waiter is so sweet and makes the entire experience feel so authentic.
Absolutely fantastic place! Highly recommended! Best Italian food in Charlotte!
My parents 55 wedding anniversary
Great wine, great food and excellent service.
A great spot in Charlotte!
As usual the food was excellent, the atmosphere inviting and friendly, the staff are attentive and go out of their way to handle special request. It's our go to place not only for special occasions but simply to enjoy a good meal in pleasant surroundings.
Restaurant not busy and service was attentive. Branzino was superb if a bit pricey. Ambiance is cozy and quiet. On Tuesdays 1/2 off bottles of wine which was a plus.
Will return due to excellent food.
Absolutely fantastic experience tonight with my wife. The server was fantastic, food was phenomenal, we'll definitely be returning.
I would recommend them but it would come with a warning that this place needs a deep cleaning. Dust is everywhere and I mean everywhere. It actually needs a makeover but at least keep the place clean . I don’t get it. Good food, service but because of the filth, the prices are too high. Please get it together. The Promenade needs you!!!
We always enjoy going to Ariiji's. The food is good, the service is great. You won't be disappointed.
Arooji's always has great service and food. We usually visit on special occasions and have never been disappointed.
Wonderful dinner and atmosphere. First time we visited...and absolutely plan to go back.
Best restaurant ever
Date night dinner. One of our favorite restaurants
It was very quiet the night we ate there- hope more people find this place. Angelo was a wonderful waiter. Food was excellent. Nice wine selection.
Came here with party of 6 to celebrate a birthday. The service was exceptional, wine list impressive, and food was very good. While the food was very good, the wine selection, ambiance, and service were what will bring me back. I would definitely recommend for small celebration or a date night.
We were in the small wine room. Great service. The six of us had a wonderful evening.
Thank you so much for hosting our girls night out. Our food and service were exceptional.
Food and service were both excellent. We had appetizers, main course and desert. All were great. Portions were a god size. Bean dip for the bread was a good surprise.
My family had a wonderful time celebrating my mother’s 81st birthday. We were seated in a private area, our server was more than attentive, and the food was EXCEPTIONAL!!!!
Thank you Arooji staff! We will return.
We always have a fantastic meal here. The service is spectacular and friendly. Great wine list at a reasonable price.
We were sat in a high traffic area that had head lights shining directly at us as people pulled into parking spots outside. Our waiter got our appetizer incorrect, and it wasn’t very good. The bread was good, and the main course was good. Portions are large. The atmosphere is nice as well. I would go back but I wouldn’t make it a regular place.
Great place and great wine. Angel made a great wine suggestion to our taste and we were quite pleased. Not to mention Angel had a great personality and kept us smiling. We will be back.
The staff were welcoming as soon as we walked in the door. Even though they fulfilled our order incorrectly, they waiter quickly offer free dessert as an accommodation.
Ray provided excellent service. Food was excellent, outstanding wine selection
Ive never had a less than great experience here. Its my go to when I want a nice romantic get a away dinner close to home.
Amazing experience and atmosphere. The food was delicious and the private room was perfect. Will definitely go back.
Nice place, good was good n see give was great
Best eggplant parm my wife has had, and I love their lasagna. Food and service are consistently great.
Fabulous dinner in an ideal ambient setting. This is best dining experience in the 485-Providence area. Calamari appetizer was delight, as were Pollo Marsala and Chicken Parmigiana entrees. We will definitely return soon. There is a nice bar area and a number of appealing high top tables for appetizers or dinner.
