We went here on a recommendation from a friend. My husband had the chicken and waffles and I had the French toast. OH my goodness. Both were great but the chicken and waffles was so good I'll be going back just for that!!!!

We went there for happy hour / dinner with friends and chose a selection of tapas, which were all amazing and had an excellent price. I recommend the bacon-wrapped dates and the ceviche.

Dining at Aji was a great experience as I had no idea what to expect after it was described to me. It is billed as a Latin American focussed menu, but I found it to be much more. The service was excellent and it was a model of what team service should be. The food is divinely spiced and well... More

Not sure when happy hour starts, but it ends at 6:00 on Friday. We were seated at 5:50 and staff gave us both dinner and happy hour menus and made sure they were back to place a happy hour order before 6. Happy hour food is many of the tacos, ceviches, salads, monitors, sangria and beers at a lower price.... More

Went here for lunch. Ordered arepas app, a single ropa vieja taco and vegetable enchiladas. Everything came out together, which wasn't a problem, just different than expected. The taco and enchiladas were excellent. I mixed in some of the chorizo from the arepas to the enchiladas made them even better. The arepas was just ok - having eating far too... More

The bar had great service with delicious drinks and great prices for happy hour. However, when we sat to eat our waiter was rude. We ordered many small plates and they came out sporadically or not at all. They ran out of the ceviche we ordered and they didn't even bother to mention it until the rest of the food... More

If you read my reviews, you know I love Latin foods in all forms. I will give a dive 5 stars if the food is right on. I used to love Aji, and was very excited to go there with my boyfriend a couple of weeks ago on a Friday for dinner. We were both quite hungry, and so we... More

Nice looking place. I really want to like this place, but they just coming up short. We were seated at an outdoor table that is loosely attached to the pedestal. We had to play a game of who can keep their elbows off of the table the longest. Our water glasses sloshed as we tried to laugh it off. We... More

Nice place to stop in for lunch. Quiet - good for a sleeping baby! The food was very tasty and worth a return visit.
