We had a promotional coupon for this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. The decor was nice and atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. Definitely glad we left our daughter at home as I didn't see one child, but that was fine, some places are suited better for adults. My husband had the Sea Bass special and said it was wonderful. Huge portion too compared to other places we have tried it. I had the pizza and it was average, felt like it was something I could have gotten anywhere. If I were to go again I would try another dish, as I probably should have this time. They have a cute outdoor patio and service was prompt and friendly. We would definitely dine here again giving the opportunity!

I've been going to Arooji's for years and always have a perfect meal. The staff is very gracious and all work hard to make sure you have what you need.

I think the prices are reasonable, and the chef is always willing to customize orders. The cheese place is a great accompaniment to the wine.

Oh, Arooji’s. It is painful to describe you, because your food is good, but not great, especially for the price point. It would be so much more fun to write a review singing your praises, but that would not be accurate or authentic.

Décor at Arooji’s is very SouthPark, in that someone’s interior decorator who hasn’t worked much because of the economy got all over the top with the Moor inspired faux paint effects. The overall look ends up being more Disney than true Mediterranean, and the SouthPark location lacks the hominess of the eponymous Ballantyne spot.

Menu stand outs include the Caprese Salad, and the honey drizzled on the cheese plate is a nice touch. The Grilled Veal Chop was good, but for the $25 price tag, it wasn’t stellar, but the asparagus that acoompanied it was.

Service is also good, and the wait staff is not utilizing the positions as a stop gap until the bank ends the hiring freeze. These guys are career servers, and they know their trade. Italian pronunciation is flawless, if a tiny bit pretentious.

Dining al fresco on the patio at Arooji’s is nice, but the flies were bothersome. Obviously, it is difficult to manage flies in an outdoor dining area, but it tainted the memory of the evening. Fine dining should not include fly swatting.

Considering the price points, the food and service at Arooji’s is just average. There are so many other family owned fine dining options in Charlotte that have just as good of food and service for less money, it is difficult to place Arooji’s on the tops list.
