    Great vibe and great service! There were moments the noise level was high but if you’re someone who doesn’t mind that, it’s easy to drown it out and it just means everyone’s enjoying themselves! Food was absolutely amazing and the cocktails were even better, I’m not a liquorice type girl but the Green Beast was the most pleasant balance! My friends and i had a wonderful time!!!

    It was our first time at Arlo’s. Very welcoming. Ambiance “feutrée” parfaite. There’s a parking lot right next door. Loved the menu instantly in that everything is unique, things you don’t find anywhere else. The wine list is unique as well with unusual finds, even from a private collection. I felt like I was at my friends’ place in South of France. We tried the oysters, the Wagyu beef, Fogo Island turbot, the duck and deserts, not to mention various wines. All was delicious. I definitely want to go back. I highly recommend the place. As for price, it is what quality work deserves.

    A terrific gem In Somerset Village. Friendly, knowledgeable staff,creative food and well curated wine selections. This restaurant, which opened moments before the pandemic shutdown, deserves to succeed. Support local and tell your friends.

    Another great evening at Arlo. Other the appetizers and mains were great. Our server knew both the food and drink menus and was able to propose wines to accompany our meals. I didn’t care for my first choice of wine and he immediately swapped it for another one. It’s a minor point, but I wish Arlo staff would dress more professionally. I’m not suggesting a uniform but ball caps and cutoffs are a bit too casual for the dining experience Arlo is presenting.

    We went to Arlo to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I now understand the rave reviews. The restaurant is beautifully set up with a cozy yet private feel to it, leaving you feeling like you’re among friends in their home. But let’s talk about the food and drink. Our cocktails were artistically created and perfect. I had a whisky sour and hubby had a negroni. We had the late summer crudités and oysters to start followed by the Fogo island turbot and duck brochette. The meal was an absolute delight. The preparation and portions were perfect and the taste was out of this world. The wine selection is massive and equally impressive. We took the recommendation offered and didn’t regret it. A lovely French red wine, Singulier. We finished with the chocolate cake dessert and two forks. Absolutely divine. Ottawa is so fortunate to have the likes of Arlo to enjoy. We are so happy we celebrated here. Even the torrential downpour we got caught in leaving the restaurant didn’t dampen our enjoyment. :)

    I chose to take my wife to arlo for our anniversary this year. I had some specific requirements within our reservation for a florist to drop of a bouquet and have it set up on the table before we arrived. Arlo went above and beyond welcoming us and setting the table. The server, Leanne was so kind and attentive, and the food was incredible. Highly recommended.

    Well overdue for a date night and could not have picked a better spot. Food and wine was amazing and service exceeded expectations. Pride made the patio quite lively while it would normally be a quiet romantic outdoor option. We will have to go back to experience both

    Our visit to Arlo was OUTSTANDING. We were a table of 3- and we treated ourselves to all of the things! The food was beyond delicious - which was no surprise considering the wonderful Jamie Stunt and his team were hard at work creating our plates. The shellfish broth and fresh bread.. there are no words. The cocktails were mind blowing- The natural wines were *chefs kiss* The ambience was perfect. We sat in the front room- it was intimate and cozy and beautiful to look at. The service was 100%. What an incredible team. The floor staff moved with such fluidity together - just perfect. The food/ wine/ cocktail knowledge was super impressive without being snobby and stuffy, just super cool down to earth humans working there- who are clearly passionate about what they do. We couldn’t have left happier. Thank you so much to the incredible team at arlo, for making our night AMAZING!!! If you have not been- go.. go now!! ❤️Amy

    The food was great. The wine was great. The company was great. Didn’t get rushed but also didn’t have our main more than two and a half hours after sitting down. Bread dish forgotten. Our server seemed genuinely intoxicated. She became progressively shaky and had difficulty walking in a straight line prior to our final interaction with her. Something may have been going on with her health wise but In that case she should not have been working. She also got very close when talking to us - didn’t seem necessary given the noise level. An uncomfortable but my dining companion has had multiple positive experiences here so I will give it another go

    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.

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
