    The food is really truly incredible. The service unfortunately left something to be desired. Will likely return, but would only sit at the bar.

    The ambience was incredible. Very sultry and dark yet still buzzing- perfect for a special occasion. Note that the menu is technically served “family style” so keep that in mind when you’re ordering. This is also a dining experience, meaning we were there for about 3 hours. They course each plate quite slowly, but I think that is part of the ambiance (we didn’t mind but something to consider if you’re crunched for time). For two people, we ordered two pastas, the burrata, and the chicken schnitzel. All of the food was incredible, but the pastas were standout. The quantity was perfect for 2, we took home very little.

    For a 6:15 reservation - we had 4 ppl and 5 total dishes to share and it took 3 hours for them to serve everything. It was incredibly slow - slower than meals in Europe. The waitstaff wasn’t pleasant or kind either, we couldn’t get their attention several times to refill drinks or answer questions. We were celebrating a birthday and they didn’t have anything celebratory- so we used the candle lighting the table. The food was very good, but not good enough to overcompensate for the service.

    The food is delicious and thoughtfully-made. The dishes are presented in sharable servings, so this spot is great for a date or couple. Everyone was very helpful, kind, and professional. Seriously, I felt a little spoiled! Our server, the host & hostess, and even Chef Kish herself (!) made our anniversary dinner an evening to remember. We will definitely be back.

    My husband and I had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Arlo Grey. Our server McKayla was wonderful and helped make our evening special. The crispy rice was one of the best things either of us have had in a while, and the halibut was buttery and delicious as well. The chicken schnitzel was not like any schnitzel I've had before - it looked like an entire deboned half chicken including a wing and was amazingly crispy. So glad we chose this spot for our celebration!

    We’ve been here at least 3 times and food never disappoints, the wayu is just AMAZING. We came back for our anniversary and we had a really nice time, the place can be a little darker and intimate so it’s nice for a romantic date; tables are far apart one from each other which is nice cause you can have some air and privacy while still surrounded by people. Service could always be better with the waiters being there when they are needed and not just once in a while.

    The menu is family style which is something I wish we had known as we were going with another couple we didn’t know that well, so it was awkward to have to figure out how to order for all of us. That’s on us—so now anyone reading this review has that information. However, once we got the ordering out of the way, I would say we were all underwhelmed at the food, especially the heirloom tomato salad (tasteless) and the chicken (dry and not special). The pasta dishes were really the only items we ordered that we all liked. The cocktails were fine, the service was fine, the host seemed to have a bit of an attitude in response to our request to sit at a different table so as not to be next to a pole (the restaurant was empty at the time so the attitude seemed a bit out of line). I am glad we tried it, if only to know we don’t want to go back.

    Food was pretty good, noise level too much. We got our apps and dinner coming out at the same time, so we felt rushed out, less than ideal. The apps and drinks were delicious, main dishes decent. My fish didn’t have enough salt, so while interesting flavors, nothing popped. We were shouting to hear each other across our tiny high top, which was not at all pleasant or fun. So overall 3.5 stars.

    Our server Spencer was fantastic! He elevated the experience to another level. Food was spectacular as well! The bread on the burrata appetizer was the star of the show. After we enjoyed the ribeye and wow every piece of that dish was phenomenal. Hats off to y’all! Thank you for the wonderful experience.

    Had high hopes but wasn’t impressed unfortunately. The service itself was pretty slow. We went on a Wednesday night for dinner service and it wasn’t crowded at all. The cocktails were good. They recommend doing family style since they are small plates and ordering several to share-not a problem. The odd part was that they don’t replace your silverware after courses or provide any serving utensils. That was fine for this occasion since I was with my husband, but had it been a date where we didn’t really know each other or a company dinner I would have found that pretty gross. Also just made the dishes hard to serve in general. The mafaldine was the only saving grace for the dinner, as it was delicious.

    What an amazing dining experience. From the moment we were so wonderfully greeted to the impeccable and caring service by Bran. Our tenth anniversary dinner was the best. The food was excellent. The grilled sourdough is a treat, the ribeye was flawless and the queen of the meal was the Bran recommended Malfadini. We have decided to make Arlo’s are go to. We will be back and back , Brian and Jo.

    Another amazing dinner experience at Arlo Grey! The only thing I wish I’d have known before ordering was that the peach pie was vegan. It was still delicious, but since I am not vegan, I was missing the richness of a non-vegan crust. Cannot wait to taste what comes out of the kitchen next! My husband and I have worked our way through most of the menu and will continue to return.

    This was a very special 60th Birthday celebration. Our server Brann was outstanding. She made our experience fantastic with her knowledge, detail, and wonderful approach. The food was perfect, every bite. Kristen Kish, the chef owner was in house that evening and was so gracious to come to our table as an added birthday treat. A real Foodie Fan moment. We picked this restaurant because as “foodies”, Kristen is a chef we follow. She was Top Chef season 10 champion. We were visiting from Minneapolis for the big Birthday.
