    Incredible food with a perfectly cozy ambiance for date night. We cleaned the gravy of our plate with delicious bread. The bartender was very kind and explained lots about natural wines to us. Dessert was equally impressive! Overall: must try.

    Enjoyable evening overall. Service was slow, cocktails took forever and seemed a touch stingy for the cost. Apps were solid. Pork blade was visually unappealing but tasted good, duck brochettes and celeriac dishes were a hit. Great wine offerings and always, love the tunes.

    The sommelier was extremely boorish. His first question was how much do you want to spend ? He complained about not being able to hear me and seemed not to understand my desire for a mineral fresh Italian white. I guess he's not used to older women and doesn't like to get close enough to hear them over the Talking Heads Life During Wartime. Snyeay he said he could not recommend any wine without first knowing how much we were willing to spend. Our s server was a delight. We hated the wine he forced on us for the awesome label it was sour AF. Food was great.

    The food was amazing, the server in our section had a perfect service . The bartender service was not as good as the service we had . We were sitting at the bar and then moved to a table. The bartender had a hard time giving us recommendations. Overall the experience was really good . I recommend it.

    One of my favourite places to go out for dinner. They staff are all amazing in both their attention to detail and knowledge of their options. The food menu always has new and delicious options that fit different eating preferences. The wine by the glass lists allow you to try so many combinations of wine to change your glass with each dish. Can’t wait to come back again!

    We went to Arlo to celebrate my son's 19th birthday. He was looking for a fun energetic place to have a good unique meal. Arlo delivered it perfectly. The staff were very knowledgeable about the food and wine and eager to share their expertise. learning about the different wines was part of the experience. The food was exceptional. we had the roasted marrow bone, the bread and bouillabaisse, and the artic char tartare as starters. the four of us shared everything and the servings were generous enough that all of us had the opportunity to taste and enjoy all of the appetizers. two of us had the Turbot and two of us had the Pork Collar. These also were excellent and perfect for the time of year (early December). All in all, the atmosphere felt like you had visited a friend's house for dinner - all those that work there genuinely made you feel welcome and like they LOVE what they do and WHERE they do it - which made the whole experience even richer. Would definitely recommend and I look forward to returning.

    Well made cocktails and flavourful entrees! They have an impressive wine cellar and most spirits and liquors are available. The staff make excellent suggestions and understand the cuisine and how to make appropriations pairings. They were also friendly with no pretense. Thanks Arlo! We will be back.

    The food and wine were excellent. On the other hand the dry martini was less than dry, too much vermouth. The room where we were seated became very noisy, it is too crowded. I was sitting closer to a patron at the next table than to my wife and one of the members of that party was quite loud. And now on to the music... why do restaurants insist on playing music? Taste in music is a very personal matter, hence restaurant staff should know that the music being played will not be enjoyed by everyone and that some patrons will find it annoying and irritating.

    We had to wait for a server to greet our table and take our order for longer than expected once we had sat down. However everything else was fantastic, our server was terrific and highly knowledgeable. The food was delicious. the ambiance was very comfortable yet elevated however it was quite noisy at times (which is to be expected on a Friday night) - overall great experience!

    I’ve been twice now and I think I could eat here every week. In addition to the fantastic service, the food is incredible. Thoughtful in its flavours and presentation and accompanied by a great bar and wine list. The only downside if it matters to you are the acoustics. It’s very very loud and difficult to have a conversation across the table. But that is a small price to pay for a great night out. This place has hit my top 5 in Ottawa.

    Alex, Mark, The Chef, Jamie and all of the wonderful staff make us feel like guests of honour in the most welcoming and comfortable way with their warmth, kindness and unassuming authenticity. It was our first night out with our newborn baby, and the Arlo team made it perfect for us. They have created an accessible worldly vibe with refreshingly original and brilliant delicious fresh dishes that hug your face. Arlo is a total escape from your regular environment. Save the flight cost and just go to Arlo. Thanks for another magical evening, guys. Our little Beatrice is a fan for life! :-)

    The food and service at Arlo are outstanding. Great atmosphere - relaxed, friendly, where the staff are focused on doing everything to make your night great. The quality of the food and menu is top notch, and a lot of care has gone into the wine list. One last note: the music is great, but somehow never interferes with conversation. Highly recommended.
