    Fabulous service and menu, Beautiful back patio and delicious meals. We had the brussel sprouts and the beef tataki followed by three main courses: halibut cheeks with asparagus, duck frites, and lamb. Everything was worthy of their place as one of the top 100 restaurants in Canada and I would put it much higher than #71. The wine section is a dream So they have you covered from everything from food to drink to atmosphere to feeling like you’re at the best place you could be at that moment.

    Food was fresh, did not go for dessert choices. Pretty much a flat rate for mains with meat. Entree was seasonal and tasty but overall we appreciated our previous visit here than this one.

    Everything about Arlo was amazing. From the service to the incredible food and huge selection of wines. What makes one want to return is the changing menus that use local seasonal ingredients. Highly recommend this place. I wish I lived in Ottawa so that I can come here regularly.

    Great time at Arlo, highly recommend and will be back soon. Food was fantastic with deceptively filling portions. Shrimp and brussells sprouts app, halibut and duck mains, were all so tasty, with great presentation and perfectly cooked. Service was top notch from greeter to server.

    Food was great (had the beef tataki w/ eel and the duck skewer w/ greens). Drinks were fantastic. Extensive wine list which we didn't really partake in this time but the server was super friendly. We were there quite early (5:30) so there wasn't much going on yet but the place gets busy later in the evening and has a nice, cozy, dim vibe. Can't wait to come back in the summer when the back patio/Somerset patio is open.

    We ha a very pleasant evening at Arlo with friends and family. The food was tasty, creative, well presented. Service -in French, merci- was exceptional. A bit pricey but we pay for the experience too, right? I recommend and we'll likely go back. Noise level should be addressed. Napkins should be replaced with hand towels. Garbage bins in the front yard should not be visible from inside.

    Overall OK experience. The appetizers were excellent. The main course was ok but significantly overpriced for what you got. The cauliflower steak for $40 was ok but not worth the price. Duck frites was just ok. The duck was overcooked and just came with fries and salad. Cocktail list is limited. Wine list per glass is limited and price for bottles are high relative to quality of wines. Ambiance is nice and service good but I had expected more for the price tag.

    An excellent experience marred by a food item that was apparently off. The manager took the item off the bill, but the night was unsalvageable. A shame - lovely place and the food was otherwise excellent. Great service.

    As a thanks for dog-sitting, we were asked our favourite restaurant and gifted a gift certificate for dinner out. Of course I said Arlo. The food and wine and service and vibe are consistently great. The scallop ceviche I had last night is one of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve eaten quite a lot of ceviche! Haha). There’s always a variety of flavours on the menu, combined in interesting ways. I will never tire of this place. And the owners are good people, too. What’s not to love? ❤️
