    Came into town with the family and got lucky to have a date night just the parents and it was the best time ever! Food was on point and delish and the wine was super amazing too. Service was top notch. Would come back many more times when in town

    Food was delicious - creative, with fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. The tomato salad with anchovy aioli was literally the best thing I’ve ever eaten. We had a 6:30pm reservation, which was ahead of any rush, so we had great service and the noise level was very manageable. We sat inside but they have a very cute back patio that we will try next time. All in all, we had great experience and will definitely be retuning.

    Our group of 4 started our evening with Oysters and a fabulous bottle of wine which I forgot to get the name of but we all loved it so much we stuck with the same wine all night. Sarah, our server was attentive, professional,well versed in the food and drink on the menu and also a lot of fun! The Oysters we started with were perfect, and instead of ordering mains we ordered a bunch of appetizers so we could share and sample lots of different things. Every dish was exquisite, in fact every aspect of our experience at Arlo was spectacular. The 4 of us are planning to return to Arlo for another magical evening very soon.

    Arlo was amazing! Exceeded all expectations. The back patio is so cute and has a great ambience, the food was delicious, the cocktails were unique and very tasty. Our server was amazing and all staff were attentive and so friendly. It was a birthday party, and our server even brought out a candle with dessert. A must visit in Ottawa, I would definitely recommend Arlo to anyone looking for a special night out

    We had a lovely girls night out! We left the wines choices up to the server and they did not disappoint. It was so nice to try natural fermented/ organic wines!! All dishes we tried were excellent. The back outdoor patio was the perfect ambience for our get together. Can’t wait to go back!

    The food was extremely overpriced for what you receive. Nothing tasted badly but it was just the most basic food made to be special and it wasn’t. We had booked on the patio as well and were put inside but the weather was beautiful out.

    Unfortunately they did not receive the message about bringing out a slice of birthday cake for my husband so it didn’t happen. The appetizers were delicious, the mains were more polarizing. The wines we ordered were okay but not amazing. The noise level was definitely more than expected. Overall a cool vibe with some stellar menu items and other more disappointing ones. Great service :)

    This was a great dining experience with an upbeat lively ambience. The food was all well presented and delicious. The one downside is the noise level- could barely hear each other. Would still return perhaps on a weekday.

    Our night at Arlo was in the top 5 restaurant experiences we've ever had, the wine list is incredible and the food was very thoughtfully curated (the crudité was a favorite). The staff were super knowledgeable, Simon gave us some great recommendations without making us feel like we needed to be oenophiles to appreciate the selection. 10/10 will definitely visit again.

    Arlo is always outstanding. The food and wine are excellent, the setting (inside and outside) is gorgeous and comfortable, and the staff are wonderful. I love this place for all these reasons and because it delivers such high quality experience without pretension. Honestly, just go. You won’t regret it. (And if you like the wine, they are also a bottle shop, so you can buy a bottle to take home!)

    Visited this restaurant based on a friend's strong recommendation. Pros: Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, drinks, etc. Wines were excellent. Cons: Very loud music, forcing the obviously drunk party beside us to scream throughout the evening. Tartare was swimming in mayo, overpowering the arctic char. Duck had an interesting spice mix, but the salt could have been cut in half. Price was high considering the quality of the food. This is the kind of place you should consider if you want to grab a glass of wine or two, split an appetizer and then go grab dinner somewhere else, but only if the patio is open. We won't be back.
