Yelp Reviews

Over the past few years we have been solicited by Yelp
numerous times for paid advertising.  The first few times
we did not even know what Yelp was. Since we are always
busy and have plenty of business, we told them that we
did not need to spend any money on advertising. Some
of our customers had informed us that they had tried to
leave reviews onYelp for our business but were not able
to do so. We looked into it, and realized that the
majority of our positive reviews had been filtered while we
had negative reviews from people we had never even
done work for. We came to realize, like many other
businesses, that this is Yelp's way of trying to force
businesses to advertise with them. We view this as
extortion (there is a class action lawsuit against Yelp in
this regards) and we ask that our customers do not
leave reviews on Yelp even though they may be positive

Please write reviews for our business on either Google or
Yahoo! Or better yet by word of mouth. Thank you for
your business!!!!
Sincerely, Ariel Howard

Filtered Yelp reviews form our great
customers that we are very thankful for!!!

dresser.. lol

My wife brought home a dining room table
ready to be donated. It was bad. We had
Ariel do his magic and he not only glued the
chairs and table so they were sturdy as new,
but he brought out the natural beauty of the
He does fabulous work. I would highly

Yael B. Escondido, CA
We recently had a desk refinished by Ariel's
Refinishing. Selecting Ariel to do the work
was a no-brainer. He'd done several other
pieces for us over the years and each one
was beautifully restored. He knows how to
bring out the beauty behind the rough with
antiques & furniture in general.

We collect antiques & have seen a host of
bad restoration and refinishing jobs. We  
know when we call Ariel we'll get quality
work. He takes pride in doing good work &
we've recommended him to several friends
who have called him back for other pieces

If you're looking for quality refinishing, call
Ariel, like we do.

They did a great job refinishing the wood on
a table I got at kobeys swap meet and
afterwards also reupholstered my antique
tufted victorian sofa. Loved their work. Very
nice guys and super helpful when good
customer service is hard to find nowadays.

Aaron B. San Diego, CA
Ariel does good work. Had a mid century
wood lamp table refinished and it's really
beautiful. Only reason it's not 5 stars is that
I had to wait a bit longer than I expected to
get it.  But it's better not to rush stuff like

Hung T. Carlsbad, CA
Ariel's refinished my buffet, credanza, dining
room table and chairs and did an amazing
job. I was so happy that I had him come to
my real estate office and touch up my office
furniture as well as that of my agents. We
could not be happier AAAAAA rating!
