    Lousy service! The place wasn’t even full and I had to cancel my glass of wine because the waitress took more than 15 minutes and I was almost finished with my pasta. Can’t imagine the service when the place is packed…

Price was very reasonable for the amount of food considering its family style serving. Definitely will be coming back

    Food was innovative but not pretentious and made approachable by our fabulous server Ms Bran and the various other staff members who so graciously attended to us. One of the most delicious meals we will continue to remember fondly. Arlo Grey is a must when in Austin. Thank you Ms Bran for such a beautiful dining experience. -DMV, Phoenix, and the young Austin soon to be back in Chicago

    Wait person was not very knowledgeable. Went with 6 people. 3 of them left after drinks and went somewhere else. That says a lot. Food came out cold. Swordfish was fishy and cold. Was bad enough the wait person took it off the bill. Huge disappointment. Perhaps Kristen Kish needs to come back and retrain her staff and chefs.

    Incompetent and clueless service — We were very excited to try Kristen’s menu. We booked our table early in the day and were 5 minutes early for our seating and were greeted promptly and escorted to a nice table. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. One or two servers were in the area working but after 20 minutes of being ignored, I went to the hostess to try and understand why no one was servicing our table. They thanked me for coming in without providing any assistance. TLDR- we had an excellent dining experience two blocks away. With no leadership at this “restaurant”, the staff is clearly incapable of meeting basic requirements. Austin feels like it’s becoming the tourist trap of the San Antonio river walk restaurants where repeat business is actively discouraged.

    Overall it was a very good experience, the food was interesting and well prepared, one of the plates was over seasoned. The asparagus looked beautiful and promising but just didn't have much flavor. We tried 3 deserts and would probably skip desert altogether on our next visit.

    Not great. The presentation of the food tries to make up for the conflicting flavors and poor execution of the dishes. The most successful dishes were the pastas. The proteins are the least to be desired. Had higher expectations from this offering from a Top Chef winner. Believe the reviews that are critical. Of note, our service was excellent.

    We decided on trying Arlo Grey when finding a nice restaurant to take my girlfriend to on her birthday trip to Austin. Bran was our server and she did an incredible job, starting our group off with a round of complimentary champagne and ending with recommendations for local venues/bars. Every dish was adeptly described while the flavors far exceeded expectation. My girlfriend gives the ambiance, food, and service a 10/10. Very glad we picked this place!

    Amazing service! The food was also really top notch. I had the oyster mushroom and burrata for starters, the rabbit and cabbage cappelletti and the hen as my main. All amazing. Loved the banana pudding also, just wish I had more of those little crunchy bits! Guess I’ll have to come back again soon to try even more :)

    We reached out ahead of time to confirm GF options for two members of our 6 person reservation with celiac disease and never received a response. Would have been good to know how limited the menu is. Overall staff was low energy and something off. I want to say cold or unwelcoming but can’t quite put my finger on it. I wouldn’t go back, especially in the evening, unless there’s a revamp of the experience. My suggestion. Turn up the lights. Don’t sit a 6ppl reso at a long table next to the kitchen where you can’t hear anyone in your party. For the price point and special occasion I’m underwhelmed, which is unfortunate for many reasons, but it takes away from the quality of food. I’d go to one of the many another amazing restaurants in Austin.

    We went for a birthday celebration and had a great time. Everything was so good. Our server was knowledgeable and helpful, and recommendations were spot on. They gave us complimentary champagne for the birthday celebration and pit candles in the dessert. Small touches that really elevated the experience. We can't wait to return. It's definitely a special occasion place since the prices are above average but worth every penny. The Tuna crudo was amazing as was the pork chop.

    Ordered a decent representation of the menu and shared everything. The dishes were gorgeous, playful, surprising, and absolutely delicious. Overall, the experience was akin to being in a dear friend’s home. A dear friend, that is, who has a singular understanding of and ability with food. Our evening was made even more enjoyable by our server, Bran, who was exceptional in every way.

    I have been wanting to eat here every since I heard Chef Kristen was opening a restaurant in Texas and it absolutely did not disappoint. Our waitress (I wish I could remember her name) was AMAZING. We asked her what she recommended and ordered one of each and it was all some of the most delicious food I've ever had. I told my coworker I was going to live on the booth we were seated at and that they were just going to have to stream my storytimes (I'm a children's librarian) from there from then on. I would 100% recommend anyone in town or even within driving distance eat there and trust the knowledgeable staff on what to eat!
