    My husband and I went to Arlo for a date night, and to celebrate his birthday. Overall we thought the food was outstanding (loved everything we tried). The service was excellent. Our only complaint was the restaurant was very loud. We had a difficult time hearing each other across the table. The place was busy (which is great to see) but likely because it was so busy, and the music was loud, it did make conversation quite challenging. I would recommend this place for sure to anyone if they are looking for good food, but would let them know what to expect in terms of noise level.

    Delicious meal and friendly staff. I felt distanced enough from other diners to feel comfortable. Just wish the reservation confirmation was by text and not a phone call because I was at work and with a patient at the time.

    A great first visit to Arlo. Sat inside at the front. Wide ranging, value packed wine selection. Service by Francois superior. Great ambiance, although partner found it slightly loud. Great selection of seafood starters, smaller number of main course selections (steak, redfish and duck). Would head back without hesitation.

    Nice restaurant, warm and lively atmosphere. Great selection of natural wines and diverse choices of appetizers and mains. We had a very nice evening overall. An observation I would make for this restaurant. For a trendy Bistro like Arlo would it be too much to ask for servers to add some style to their attire? T-shirts, jeans and baggy clothes did not seem fitting for this venue...

    The food was amazing!! The Eggplant Escabeche Toast is a must. We had the duck & the steak, and both were absolutely delicious. The chocolate cake we had for dessert was incredible. The restaurant is beautiful, and the staff were welcoming, attentive and helpful. The only misses were the Seafood Bungalow which we found to be overpriced and underwhelming, and the selection of beverages available to those who don’t drink alcohol is sparse, with few options available. Otherwise, it was an awesome night out, and we will definitely be back. Thanks for making it great Arlo!

    We really enjoyed our time at Arlo. Great appetizers and wine list. The only letdown was the duck frites main course. The duck was overspiced and underwhelming.

    This was our first visit to Arlo. We had a table for 2 on the back lower patio. Everything about the evening was perfect. LeeAnn our server was knowledgeable about the food/wine offerings, and provided great service. The food was exquisite and paired beautifully with the wine. We look forward to another Arlo evening
