Food and service was excellent. It's a really cool place and my only complaint is that the tables for two on the back wall were entirely too close to one another... Literally just over a foot or so. My neighbor at the table beside me literally rubbed elbows with me.
Very limited food selection and not impressed with what we ordered.
Food was great and waiter was excellent !
Lovely setting, great location but overall Arro needs work. Food is good/ fair but not great. Beef Tartare a "house specialty" was poor... Burned toast, dice of the beef was to large and chunky for a tartare, and flavorless... Beets were good, Parisian Gnocchi, Steak Frites, all good but not great. Desserts ho hum. Waitress could not make the French press work for coffee. I expected more overall culinary skill and more flavorful French fare. Overall a decent experience but the greeting staff was rude and then sullen as they oddly had plenty of open tables, we had a reservation but kept trying to put us in a vacant side room.
Our dinner was outstanding, start to finish. Everything was impeccably fresh, artisanal, beautifully presented, and perfectly seasoned. The food was among the best restaurant food I have ever had, including many great meals in France. Ambiance: artsy, informal, a little noisy ( server graciously turned down the volume of music when asked).
First off the website is unclear as to the location. Let's try this, "SW corner of 6th and Nueces." They do have valet parking which is great for 6th St. Staff and waitress were friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and prompt. The drinks were excellent as was the wine list. We had the fried blackeyed peas which were surprisingly delicious. Both my wife and I had the Bar Steak Frites (Steak and shoestring fries with a garlic aoli for the fries. Everything was delicious except that the steak was tough. A place like this should be able to get a better steak than this, heck I can get one at Costco.
I loved the food, especially the butternut squash salad. The wine list had great variety, and the night we went it was half price bottles. Which was a fun surprise. Arro is very comfortable, and the noise level is just right.
One of my New Year's Resolutions was to try one new restaurant a week. My parents were in for the weekend and I wanted to impress. Arro did not fail! A first for us all, we had no idea what to expect. I made a reservation for 5pm Friday. My parents arrived a few minutes before they were open. Someone told them to come back shortly and gave them a voucher for free bubbly and frites! The service started even before we sat down and it only got better. Amazing waitstaff, impeccable menu, and the wine selection was out of control. Really really well done from top to bottom. The 1/2 pound chicken may be the best chicken I've ever eaten and definitely a table pleaser. The Parisian Gnocchi was superb. Blood orange sorbet with crème fraiche. This is bistro food at its most luxurious. The best part was the quality of service from our waiter- Knowledagble, kind, charming and engaging. Can't wait to go back!
Not seated at a table despite reservation and timely arrival, host staff either inexperienced or lackadaisical. Emergency reservations placed and honored at another restaurant and apology received from friendly staff member. Drink was well made, staff generally friendly and professional on a busy night, obvious camaraderie that is nice to see. App eaten at bar was fine. Hopefully others will report an overall better experience.
Loved the service. Good was delicious, just wish there was more of it. Serving sizes left me needing a cheeseburger about 10 minutes after I left.
Excellent staff and wonderful food. We will be back many time!
If you are headed to the ballet or symphony, this is a great place to go to get dinner knowing that the service will be prompt and have you out on time.
Had a wonderful first date, came here because the beautiful ambiance in the pictures. Unfortunately they quickly sat us at the corner of the restaurant with a big window by the alley where a bright fluorescent light was shining through. We didn't let that bother us of course, but as I planned the date it bothered me that the ambiance I was trying for was ruined by the one spot in the restaurant they chose to sit us at. Maybe if we look like we're on a date they should sit us somewhere nicer? We were two guys and maybe they thought we were friends... idk.
We got here for happy hour. The food was good and the happy hour drinks were even better!
Interior is nice and polished without being stuffy or trendy. We sat at the bar, the bartender made great drinks and provided excellent service.
Arro has declined into yet another sixth street saloon with a limited menu. Cuisine is faux french, more akin to bar accessories with a chicken or flank steak enhancement.
When the atmosphere, service, sommelier, food and drink are ALL fabulous, that is why one word will do!!!!
Our waiter was lovely and very helpful. When we arrived, it wasn't busy and we had a comped app and our first two ordered apps came out quickly. Then, it weirdly took about 40 minutes to get our third app (beef tartar) and an extra 15 to receive additional bread that we had requested. When we finally were given our main entree, we were no longer hungry because of the wait time. The wine was delicious and the music played was good.
My first time dining here, I enjoyed the experience from start to finish. Food was great, and I had the wine flight which allowed me to sample three different reds. Couldn't go wrong for $12, and the wines were good ones. Service was excellent, and I really liked the ambiance - being a fan of Easy Tiger, I was looking forward to trying Arro and wasn't disappointed.
I have been here twice, and really wanted to like it. The food is just very average and overpriced
Most informed and interesting pairings in Austin. The service is integral to the food/wine. Your pace always. Feels as though Drew and Craig invited you over. great times indoors or out.
