THE BEST !!! – Ok honestly all the bad reviews bellow MUST be from someone who has a personnal grudge against somebody who works there.... Yes there's a valet and that a GREAT thing... If you're too cheap to pay $3 for somebody to park your car then you might as well stay at home.
The food is awesome HUGE menu all the products are fresh and it's always tasty. I have been there more than 10 times I have never been disapointed...
The service has always been quick and efficient. The waiters are not pros but tell me where in L.A waiters are real professionnal. Everytime the service was good and the food was excellent.
I love Aroma
Great food, service not so good – The place is very nice and large. they have a large outdoor seating which i loved. valet parking $3 (free for first hour). You get a lot of food for your money but the waitress was impossible to catch. She walked around and talked and hung out and never bothered to see if we were ready to order. I had to wave for 5 minutes to catch her. (they really want that $3 for the parking!) I got a lot fo the money and a large coffee and large orange juice. they have soy milk which is hard to find anywhere outside of starbucks. I loved the food and the atmosphere. The bathrooms were so clean and high end, that was a nice surprise. Again i had to chase after the waitress to get the check (we didnt come there to sit for 3 hours). I'd prob go to a diff location next time i don't like being ignored.
My buddies and I decided to head there for brunch and check it out. Horrible Experience. The not-so-bright waitress did not write down the correct order and ask several times what each of us ordered again. Forgot the drinks. Overpriced menu for a wrap or sandwich that is $13.00 bucks when you can go to Subway for $5.00 bucks. Simply overpriced . You can have a better experience with inexpensive prices at Toast on 3rd St. or Griddle Cafe on Sunset Blvd with a smarter staff. We would never ever go here again. Let's see how this restaurant survive when the recession comes into play.
All Around Awful Experience – I don't know what happen to Roman's (the predecessor of this location) but oh that I could wish it back into being. Let me start from my arrival to discover this location was now valet parking only. Excuse me? This is like McDonald's asking you for your reservation on arrival. Okay so I put that aside, parked on a side street and made the walk only to enter a revamped eatery that reminded me of an upscale high-school cafeteria. They cram as many tables in as possible and then blast music so basic conversation is a near impossibility. Then let's talk about the staff, maybe they should take a trip to Trader Joe's and find out about friendly service. No one, absolutely no one smiled at me or was remotely pleasant. All this would be forgivable if the food was fantastic...IT WAS NOT! I ordered a fish dish which tasted like someone pressed an auto-button on the microwave and poured some watery mushroom sauce over top. The salad was passable but I didn't pay twenty bucks for bad fish and a mediocre salad. I was so craving good fish I made the 40 minute trek to Gulf Stream in Century City for their to die for crab-cake entree. (Which was ten dollars more than the awful offering from Aroma...and worth every penny!) DO NOT confuse this place with the Aroma Cafe in studio city, that is a wonderful tranquil spot with simple scrumptious dishes...this particular Aroma just plain STINKS!
Good for coffee and desert – Been her a couple of times now, good 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, but portions are large...and fairly unappetising. Salad was one gigantic mess, too much dressing, too much tuna, too much of everything, and one odd looking BEIGE colored boiled egg!! Hummus was decent but tasted like it was watered down....again no one needs a whole bowl of hummus for $10. Steak wrap with mushrooms, was completely tasteless! For a far better late night meal try "Bossa Nova", a few doors down, you cannot go wrong...although the place is crowded.
Terrible food and service! – Our group of five decided to try this new local cafe on Sunday morning for breakfast. The eggs in all of our dishes were overcooked (ie. egg whites were dark brown). The breakfast burritos and sandwiches were completely tasteless. The waffles were extremely dry even with the large amount of whipped cream on top. The salad and vegetables were not fresh or edible. The service was slow and unfriendly. Not one dish in our group of 5 were finished. We followed our $80 brunch with a second brunch down at the KFC which was far superior - food, value and service! Enough said!
BEST Bakery And Cafe' in The HOLLYWOOD area. – Yes, the service needs to be improved and it takes a little more time to get the food but..........
The place is wonderfull, the food is excelent and the girls are lovely !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We will be back there for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Five stars and some paitent.
CItysearch Editorial Review – Like its popular Encino sibling, this bustling cafe seems to have something for everyone on its impossibly large menu. Selections include a variety of creative pizzas, pastas and even some Asian-leaning dishes--from Greek salads and Jerusalem bagel toast sandwiches to puff-pastry burekas and roasted-eggplant plates--but the majority of appetizers and entrees have a decidedly Mediterranean flair. There's no lack of hummus, phyllo and feta in this kitchen. In the dining room, the look is tasteful, simple and unobtrusive, except for the dessert-display case. Filled with temptations dipped in chocolate or covered in powdered sugar, candy sprinkles or caramel glaze, the case is definitely worth a walk-by, if only to stare.
Wait Until Service Improves – A sign outside says "Open While Training" -- but how much training will it take for servers to develop basic courtesy and competence? I was excited by the fresh Mediterranean menu and ate there twice; the food is fine, but the service discouraged me from going back. The waitress never smiled or welcomed me, did not write down my dinner order, and then returned after ten minutes to ask for the order again. After it arrived (late) she disappeared. Although there were only three other tables occupied in the dining room, I sat for fifteen minutes after finishing the meal, waiting for a check -- finally the hostess (who was courteous and efficient) noticed the problem and went in search of the waitress. The result was that when I left the restaurant, I had spent twice the time I intended and was unhappy with the experience.
Often training periods can be fun, if the staff has some measure of humor or enthusiasm but, in a city full of professional waiters and waitresses, Aroma has assembled a staff of servers who seem to resent the job and would rather be doing anything else.
