good food, bad service, good bad service, huge menu, horrible experience, very nice place, bad fish
LUV IT!. While on a trip to Los Angeles, we stumbled upon AROMA and I am grateful for this find. Fresh Mint leaf tea, Smoked Salmon, cucumber tomato and green salad, cream cheese and crisp bagel chips plate are the absolute best. ITS A MUST every time I am in LA!!
Not impressed. Service was a bit slow which was surprising, as they were not very busy and had a lot of staff standing around talking. Food was okay and not worth the price. Our appetizer had a hair in it and we sent it back right away. The waitress felt bad and brought us a new appetizer a few minutes later but they still charged us, which surprised me.
I placed an order at 7:21PM for delivery. The website said my order would be here at around 7:56PM. At 8:45PM I called Aroma Bakery Cafe, and was told the driver is on his delivery route, and should be there shortly with my food. No food has arrived still, so I called back at 9:21PM, and they tell me my order hasn't left yet, because they don't have my dessert. Right. First time I call I was told my order was sent out, and now it hasn't even been made. Why would you not call and tell me this, instead have me sitting here waiting hungry expecting my food to come!?!!?! He proceeds to ask me if I still want my food, and I tell him no, I just want a refund (since I paid with credit card).
Wonderful vegetarian dishes with Mediterranean flair.
Ok I admit as much as I love this place, I have had experience with slow service. I like to think the taste and quality of the food makes up for it though! I have had breakfast here at least 4 times and lunch twice. The huge menu really makes decisions hard especially if you show up hungry. And the place smells like fresh baked bread since it is also a bakery.
For breakfast the "Mediterranean Shakshuka" has sunny side up eggs simmered in a spicy tomato and bell pepper sauce. It is spicy and exotic without being mouth burning. Completely satisfying especially on chilly mornings!
For something mouthwatering and completely different, try the Labane & Zaatar. Think thin crust cheese-less pizza topped with a fresh herb blend and fragrant olive oil. With a side salad you have a great Summer lunch!
The prices do seem do be a bit high on the side for fish and meat but if you are a vegetarian then not really a worry with many reasonably priced options.
Good for coffee Overpriced desert bad service. Nice atmosphere, but I won't be eating here again. Nice place for a late night coffee or tea, but that's about it. Prices are high, Desert here look like Porto bekery just make it more cute but cost 3 time more. I prefer to go to Porto's bekery in Magnolia.
Huge Dissapointment!. I don't understand why this place did not have a friendly staff, after all there were enough employees and they weren't overwhelmed or anything. At one point the owner or manager was walking by and my husband asked for the password to get on wi-fi and he was so annoyed and rude when telling us the password. He was walking around practically staring down people! I had a seared tuna salad dish ($16 not bad), oh my gosh I couldn't have the fish it was just nasty. My husband had the beef stroganoff dish ($32 expensive!). It was better than my dish but I still needed to add salt to it and something was still missing. I was so disappointed. My suggestion to the owner is to get a chef that can cook and to change their policy on service (smiles, eye contact and friendlier tone would be a great start).
OVER PRICED!!! BAD SERVICE.
OVER PRICED...REALLY $26 for stroganoff??RIDICULOUS!!! Service was so horrible, we had to ask several times for water re-fills, our plates were never taken off table after during or before check. Staff just stood around when their tables needed service.
people think the food is good because it is from jars and pre-pakaged. Yes of course the olives, feta cheese, artichokes, pita bread, pickles, yogurt and tomatoes are going to be good. It's all shipped and pre-packaged/canned. Mediocore pre-packaged food for WAY TOO MUCH!!!!!!!! LETS TAKE THEM OUT OF BUSINESS AND MOVE A BETTER RESTAURANT IN! I WILL NEVER EVER EVER RETURN!!!!!!!!! STAY AWAY LIKE PLAUGE!!!! GO TO A DELI IF YOURE CRAVING FOOD FROM AROMA CAFE, YOU'll SAVE A LOT OF NEEDED MONEY NOWADAYS!!! What are they thinking?????
Good Food Bad Service !. Food was a bit pricey but the food was good, the waitress was a little slow, dint check back with us, got us the wrong salad. overall a very decent experience.
Overpriced and overcooked!. At first I thought this place was the same as Aroma Cafe in Valley Village, but was terribly mistaken. Service was bad, never even acknowledged for 15 minutes. Burger and Tuna was overcooked. The prices are outrageous. I felt like I was in Vegas. If I knew now, the, I would pass right by.
What's All the Fuss. People seem to love or hate..Balanced view....Sevice Israeli service..you have to joke and cajole the sabras as in Tel Aviv...in fact a Tel Aviv retaurant... great coffee...am eating there tomorrow so will follow up on food. Breakfast..large fresh OJ. Capucinno, Croissant $6.75 very well priced. Free Valet during the day/lots of street parking
