    Outstanding food and servers. This restaurant is in a small space with counter and table seating. Quarters are a bit tight and food service is slow paced for a leisurely meal. Unique food pairings, but the results worked as each dish was delicious.

    The food was absolutely delicious and not combinations I have had before. The whipped avocado with the crudo was so smooth and very flavorful. The burrata was a very different flavor and very interesting. The panna cotta was absolutely delicious. The drinks were good but thought they were overpriced compared with the food. There were good textures to all of the food. Very savory.

    While traditionally good, our most recent experience will have us not returning until a few changes are made. The first is a building issue (not their fault) which limits their kitchen exhaust, thus the space smelled of smoke/seared food. Besides affecting my taste, my hair and clothes smelled of charred food even the next day. Second is the chef is heavy handed with the salt. This was the first meal where I drank 3 full glasses of water during the meal, and when we mentioned it to the server, she admitted she has heard that complaint from many diners but that was the chef's style. If you go, I would recommend asking your server to limit the salt where possible on every dish.

    First time at Arden and will not go back. Food was confusing (flavors, seasoning). Service on a busy night was not as expected. Although the staff tried to recover, our order was suspended, which meant we waited a long time for our order. The restaurant was Smokey, my eyes burned and our clothes wreaked of smoke. Although the staff tried their best to recover, the overall experience wasn’t worth it. I could forgive the smoke and poor service if the food was awesome (it wasn’t).

    Sat at the counter which was a bit more casual than a table. Food was delicious which for us included fois gras, steak, pierogi, and chicories salad. The wine list is immense by the bottle and more than sufficient by the glass. Service was friendly and engaged. The pacing of food is a bit slower than normal, but comfortable. Highly recommend.

    This was an incredible find! Every dish was impeccable and it was coursed out with perfect timing. The service was exactly the level you would expect from a higher end restaurant but still managed to feel like casual dining. The wagyu tartare was one of the best dishes I have had at any restaurant. I would 100% go back.

    The service and food was excellent! The chef is so talented! The flavors popped and the server helped me pick great wine options for my courses. The pumpkin cappelletti was divine! Add the truffles! Took the dish to next level. There was a mixup with the rest of my chicory salad - which is huge BTW - and they did due diligence to make it up to me. Definitely worth every penny!

    We absolutely loved the apple-kohlrabi goat cheese dish and the rest of the dishes were also very good. We had the kohlrabi, crudo, foie, clam spaghetti, perogies, and quail. Everything was beautifully plated and tasty. However, I did find a lot of the plates to be just a touch too salty. As I ate on, the salt seemed to build. Also the truffles on the perogies dish were not flavorful and were a little disappointing. We still enjoyed our dinner overall, and the service and chocolate terrine dessert were fantastic.

    Visited Arden for its acclaimed wine and dinner experience, opting for a pre-fixed meal with wine pairings. Disappointingly, the wines, seemingly oxidized, lacked distinction. While initial white wines paired acceptably with dishes like the commendable spaghetti with clams, the Sicilian red wine disastrously clashed with an underwhelming quail dish, prompting its return. Service was inconsistent, varying from overly rushed to adequately attentive, contributing to a disjointed evening. The hurried delivery of early courses contrasted starkly with lengthy waits for subsequent dishes. One server's memorized and hurried spiel detracted from the experience. Regrettably, we won't be returning, as the restaurant failed to live up to its potential.

    This was perhaps hands down one of the best meals I have eaten. I entertained clients and one of them finally said that he felt we should applaud every time another course came out. Favorites included the crudo, scallop in curry, clam pasta and chicories salad. And you can't forget the popcorn ice cream with foi gras. Everyone thought it was weird at first, but the foi gras was buttery and added the perfect taste profile. Service was outstanding. The restaurant is cozy and you can see the Chef hard at work from any table. You could really see the attention being put into every dish. Please don't hesitate to experience Arden; you won't be sorry.

    Taste sensations to blow your mind. Incredibly creative and inventive seasonal food offerings served by joyful staff. Only drawback is poor ventilation causing the smell of the grill to permeate every fiber of your clothing for days on end. But what a reminder!

    We’ve eaten at Arden a number of times and while mostly good it can be hit and miss. New Year’s Eve dinner was a big miss. The restaurant was exceptionally smokey-seems to be their hood doesn’t work properly. We shared the entire menu and the only thing that stood out was the pasta with uni. The rest was either average or not good. Why the heavy handed treatment of delicate things like hamachi and the lovely McFarland springs trout? Way too many ingredients on the plate. The orange salad was tasteless. The clafoutis for dessert so heavy and stodgy and boring. I know they can do good food there as I’ve had it. It was a very disappointing evening sorry to say.
