Rachel did an excellent job as our server. She was very attentive and personable.
We’ve always enjoyed Ari so brought some friends with us who have never had Korean BBQ. Unfortunately, our server did not understand English very well and was not attentive to our table. We waited forever for drink refills, she never asked if we wanted additional kimchi, etc.
My wife asked if they had cognac and she said no so I went to the bar and ashes. They have four kinds. I guess she didn’t know what my wife asked.
Finally, she brought us a check, but that was before asking if we wanted dessert. We ended up going to the dessert bar and ordering it ourselves. Nonetheless, it was a very trying experience and turned what could have been a nice evening into one that wasn’t so great.
Terrible service - we were told an hour before our reservation that we could not order from the entree menu or the all you can eat option (our entire reason for going) - and no reason was given for why we couldn’t. Our waiter told me that it was my job to let the rest of my party know that they could not order what they wanted - which I didn’t appreciate. I would have appreciated a warning when making the reservation that we would not be getting the full experience.
LOVE this restaurant. It was our first Korean BBQ experience and it was wonderful. The staff was so kind and helpful. Perfect for any group! We will definitely be coming back with friends and family!
Everything was very good. The only thing is that we had all you can eat and the food that had to be done at the kitchen took a while. We were full by the time it came over and we were not allowed to take it to go so it went to waste. Other than that the food we had was very delicious and the electric lemonade drinks were very refreshing. Nice ambiance too.
We had an amazing time and the food was so tasty and cooked to perfection. The service was stellar. A favorite whenever we visit ATL!!!
The owner of the restaurant refused to make a French 75. The macaroons were extremely old and hard as rock. Luckily our server was good and he took it off the tab. I would definitely not return. The meat quality was good but while they cooked the food it flew off the stove and landed on the table multiple times and they continued to throw it back to cook.
Excellent customer service and incredible, authentic Korean BBQ.
Highly recommended! The food was great and the service was outstanding! First time ever at this restaurant and we are definitely going to be back soon. Such a pleasant experience. Would highly recommend the all you can eat Korean barbecue!
Outstanding, we did the Prime Ayce,
Our server was so efficient.
Will be back!
Nice people good service
The food was really good. All booths around us were filled, so I assume there was no plan for social distancing. However, the servers wore masks.
The desert was excellent.
We had a wonderful anniversary meal with Rory as our server. She was knowledgeable and fun and really made our experience great! We will be back soon.
Excellent food and Service. We really enjoyed the experience and will definitely return
Wonderful ambiance and delicious food. Great staff
Food was bland. Service was great though. I reserved a table for 8 and they sat us at 2 tables. If I had been notified in advance that they could not accommodate a party of eight together I would have gone elsewhere. I realize it was all you can eat but the food was barely seasoned.
Great food and great service.
First time, great experience and food! Especially like cooking the protein/seafood in the middle of the table. Allows for your perfect, desired temperature.
I was cooking my food, but then I let the server cook it and well she cooked it and it was raw. Made me and my fiancé sick the next day. She had to call out of work. I would recommend that if the server cooks it, she should cook it properly.
Not a fan - service was not great and food was okay. Not well explained even if you’ve had k bbq before
We went to the restaurant to celebrate valentines. When we arrived we were sat at our table and waited for over 15 minuets for a waiter. The waiters were running around the restaurant literally sprinting to tables. Our waiter came by to take our order and then returned over 15 minuets later with our wine. We placed our order knowing it looked like it was going to be a while the waiter did apologize and told us he was busy. The sides and the food came out 20 minuets apart from each other and if you are familiar with Korean BBQ. they are meant to go together. The most disturbing incident was the waiter placed extra food on our table and walked away. The waiter immediately came back and asked had I touched the plate of brussels. When I said no he took them off of the table and told us they were meant for another table. The waiter took them down two tables and dropped them for the other couple to eat. This was completely unsanitary and left us feeling rather uncomfortable even continuing to eat. We were less than pleased. I have never written a review before however this deemed necessary. Needless to say we will not be returning .
We were ignored the whole time at our table. They never came over to ask if we would like any drinks, or to advised us someone will be right over to assist. They was the absolute horrible customer service I had ever encountered!!!! Horrible service!! We left, and no one even noticed! Unacceptable!!
Waited forever for drinks. 45 min and felt it was overpriced. Was good food though.
I was really excited about trying this place out. It turned out to be a disaster for our Valentines Day date. I won’t go back.
Max, our waiter was very attentive. On a few occasions the owners would abruptly take over and say little to nothing. Food was good and restaurant was very clean and inviting.
Whenever we are craving Korean BBQ Ari always our top 2 choices. Their restaurant was already configured COVID-friendly before the pandemic, in my opinion of course.
Great upscale KBBQ, don’t forget to save room for dessert.
Our food was fresh and absolutely delicious. Staff was so friendly and attentive. For those looking for Covid friendly dining, just know that you aren’t spaced from other diners once the restaurant gets busy.
Great restaurant and would highly recommend! Food and service were amazing. Great ambiance and good value !
Dinner was great. Table service was excellent.
Great service, good and overall ambiance , food was amazing and the staff where so attentive. I will go back when I can.
Over all it was a great date night. Price was reasonable for a date night. I love the dessert and cafe inside the spot. We got to buy bottle of soju togo and that was definitely a plus.
It was such a wonderful experience!!! We loved it!!! We will go again. Do not forget to stop at the macaroon bakery on your way out!!!
Fun and memorable
The ambience was great for a date night or even a girls night out. It is a little pricey though. Overall, we enjoyed it.
I’ve been before and enjoyed it. However this time taking family I was disappointed that when we did the all you can eat prime dinner, they made us pay for a vegetarian (even though she ordered a full meal she could eat). Also they only brought one each of the small sides out for the entire table. We asked for another set so we weren’t having to reach over the hot cook top but didn’t get them. Sadly, the meat was the same portion for 5 adults as it was when two of us went. With tip over $550 for 6 and left not feeling great about the experience.
Sadly that was the last time
Wonderful experience! Service was excellent, food was delicious! Friendly and welcoming staff. Clean and covid-conscious. A great evening :)
It was our first time having Korean BBQ and we were not disappointed. Plenty of food to go around.
Love this place! Quite authentic... could be In Seoul eating this meal. Fantastic service and great quality.
Superb Korean BBQ in North Fulton (Johns Creek) located at the corner of Medlock Bridge Road & State Bridge Road in the shopping plaza where AMC theatre is located.
Our friends who lived in Tokyo, Japan for 6 years, and are connoisseurs of Korean BBQ (which is very popular in Tokyo) invited us to join them. While they did the ordering, this was our first experience with Korean BBQ.
Our food was prepared at the table as most tables have the cooking area in the middle of the table. This assured that all the different meats and vegetables were literally prepared in front of you.
Although I was not tempted to try the kimchi (which everyone said was fantastic) I held out for the meats, prauns and vegetables, which were all sumptuous.
There is also a Korean bakery which is inside the restaurant, making selecting a desert a nice ending to a wonderful meal.
We will return and I highly recommend you to with friends or family.
