This is place is amazing!!! The service was outstanding, the food was delicious, and the drinks were awesome!
Celebrated my sister’s birthday here. Very nice ambiance and we absolutely loved the decor. The food was GREAT! We ordered one of the feast meals and it was delicious, especially the steak. Loved all the sauces as well. Will definitely come back.
Ellie was wonderful. She helped us make this a very special birthday dinner. Her hospitality and warmth was great and she helped us understand the choices and steered us to the tastiest options. The ricotta pistachio cake was heavenly.
We’re definitely coming back!
This is the best authentic Korean food that I have tasted in ages. We also really were pleased by the service.
Ari is such a vibe! It’s quiet and so nicely decorated! It is Spacious and the waiters are great! Definitely recommend!
Amazing food and unique experience! We will be coming back!
Food and service was higher quality in previous visits. Waiter barely spoke English making ordering difficult. Cocktails were not good. Had to send back and order beer instead.
We made a reservation via Opentable and arrived to the restaurant within the reservation window. We were seated very timely and everything seemed fine. Our server was the real issue. She was very rude and would leave in the middle of taking our order. After asking for water 4 times, which should’ve been provided after initially being seated. Two Caucasian males were seated 15 minutes after we had already been there and received immediate service and attention, while we still waited for water and silver ware after asking 4 times. Needless to say the service was terrible and weirdly bias and we left before ordering which we were still waiting to do after being their 30min. It all made for a terrible evening. I am sure the food is good maybe, I dunno but the service was definitely low quality.
Very Good Energy And Very Attentive Staff
Max was amazing as well as the rest of the service staff. Great experience
Beautiful experience, very good meats and service!
Fun! Food is cooked in the middle of your private booth. Tried the dinner feast - Kimchi pancake and short ribs are delicious. Can’t wait to go back.
Excellent food and wonderful service!
We came for an early Father’s Day lunch and had a great time! Great customer service!
Superb Korean food and wonderful service.
Thank you so much for your review! It means a lot to us. We hope to see you again!
Loved the aesthetic and ambiance! Jennie was a pleasure to have as our waitress! The Food was delicious as well! The cake shop was also a pleasure to go to! I ended up getting some Oreo pudding and citron soju!
Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We are pleased to hear that you had an amazing time. We hope to see you again!
They didn’t have the wagyu nigiri which was the whole reason we went.
Overpriced, quality of food has gone down, not allowed to take leftovers home.. I felt nickeled and dimed. Also, we were packed into a booth and told we couldn’t take a larger booth bc it was reserved for a party that never showed. We weren’t properly greeted, just asked to order. No accommodations for any celebrations except a birthday.This is my third time there. It could be so much more if they elevated the service and were less concerned with penny pinching.

It was great!
Thank you for your review! We are glad to hear that you had a great time. We hope to see you again!
I think Ari is on its way out. This is a tough plaza to be successful in. First time I ate at ARI I thought everything was amazing but everything seems to be shrinking. I think they are cutting costs but it shows.
Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us a review! We are sorry to hear that the food wasn't as great as before. We will take your review into consideration and try to improve our service. Thank you so much and we hope to see you again!
The service was wonderful. All of the food was tasty. An overall great experience for our family lunch.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy to hear that you had a great experience with your family. We hope to see you again!
Service was trash. No other words needed, just trash
Thank you so much for your honest review. We apologize for your experience at ARI. Please let us know how we can improve our service. We will take your review into consideration and work harder to prevent unpleasant experiences.
Excellent service and food. Great Mother’s Day dinner.
Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us a review! We are so happy to hear that you had an amazing experience on Mother's Day. We hope to see you again!
A little more expensive then some other Korean restaurants we have gone too. Dark not much light. Picture if inside the restaurant different from what it looks like!
Thank you so much for your review. We hope that we can provide a better experience for you next time! We will try our best to better our service for future customers!
I would appreciate that the restaurant told me on Mother's Day the menu was price fixed. I had children 12 and under that could not eat anything because the menu was for adults and they would not change the menu choice for children. It's ironic they were celebrating Mother's day but no children's options that day. Clearly they wanted to make money and turn over the tables tables as quick as possible. The first and last time we go there.
Thank you so much for taking time to write us a review. We apologize for the disappointment. We will take your review into consideration and think of other ways to provide a better experience for future Mother's Day. Thank you!
We've been wanting to try their ayce menu for awhile so decided to take my mom there for mother's day. Unfortunately they only offer special menu for mother's day without an option for their regular menu for ayce. This was rather disappointing as it was quite expensive for the special menu especially we got 2 children. Meat was fresh.
Thank you so much for taking your time to leave us a review! We apologize for your inconvenience on Mother's Day. We usually have special menus available on holidays to provide a more meaningful experience to our customers at ARI. We will find ways to try and better our communication to our guest so that they are more informed so we can prevent these types of circumstances. We hope you can come back on a normal day and definitely try the AYCE! Have a wonderful day!
$48 person for Mother’s Day set menu for both adults and children was NOT fair. Too much meat and three adults and a child of 7 years old could not finish. Server was inexperienced and too busy in between all tables he had to tend to. Restaurant management did not seem to be have been well prepared.
Hello, Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review. We apologize for your experience at ARI. We hope that you can give us a chance to better your experience. On normal days, we have plenty of meal options available that we hope you can try and enjoy! We will be sure to have your review in mind and work harder to prevent these experiences for future customers
We had never been to a Korean BBQ restaurant and wanted to give it a try. We were so impressed with the server’s ability to multitask. The experience was fun. The food was amazing, portions were good. I would certainly return.
Thank you so much for leaving us a review! We are so glad to hear that you had an amazing experience at ARI. Please let us know how we can improve our service and provide a better experience to five stars. We are so happy to hear that you will return and we look forward to seeing you again!
Great restaurant and date night experience. Food was superb and the service was great. It's pricey but I thought the quality and quantity were fair for what you paid.
If I had to complain it would be availability issues on the menu. Particularly wagyu not being available despite being somewhat of a featured item.
Overall, I'd recommend to anyone.
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
