Food decent but table service was almost nonexistent. Major disconnect when the server never refills your water, walks by your empty plates four times only to never clear the table then just brings the check automatically without checking in on our meal or if we wanted a final course or coffee. The service made for a very sad wasted lunch experience in this great city. In summary this front of the house experience would have failed restaurant wars.
Food was brilliant, service was even better. Would definitely go back.
If you like shared plates,you’ll love this place.
The food was outstanding. Service was outstanding.
Amazing food, service, and atmosphere!
It is a lovely place but very expensive compared to similar concept restaurants in Austin - Emmer & Rye, Olamaie, Rosewood, Pitchfork Pretty. The food is good but portions are small. We decided to try dessert, which was very good. But that was when we lost the waiter. Finally had to ask someone else to get our check. Opting for dessert added an extra 45 minutes to our meal, by the time we got our check and paid. And so we had to rush to our next engagement. I’m glad I tried the restaurant so I satisfied my curiosity but will probably not invest 2.5 hours in a dinner here again.
Spectacular food and service. Noise level - I think music could be lowered but too loud.
Very cool space. Love Chef Kish's menu and food - with only one exception on a single small plate. Wine list needs to be expanded with more options in the $70-130 range - it's either cheap or expensive - more moderate options would be appreciated. Service was better this time than prior visits (our 4th time here) . Water server was exceptional and appreciated!
Tuna was way off. I feared getting sick. Burger was good and the corn and carrots was amazing. Rice cake was way too salty. We mentioned something about the tuna being off and I’m surprised that they did not refund us for that. We sent it back almost as if it wasn’t eaten.
Food is excellent and space is very beautiful. The space does feel a bit empty though so choose a weekend if ambiance is important.
Disappointing brunch items; I have eaten there twice before for dinner which was much better
This time, there were barely any patrons in the restaurant and yet the service was extremely slow: the French toast was very confusing, the rigatoni was bland, and the duck legs were tough
Broccoli was descent and the bread pudding was pretty good; overall I am no longe interestEd in returning.
Went for friends birthday! Amazing aesthetic and even better food. I ordered the steak and it was so tasty! Our server (maybe Jonathan) was so sweet and knowledgeable about each dish. When I return to Austin I have to go again.
So happy to hear the experience went so well. We look forward to your next visit. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Beautiful space that seems well suited to accommodate groups or for special occasions. However, menu is kind of random and food/beverages are pretty pricey by Austin standards. We went for brunch and the cheapest bottle of wine is $65. Additionally, brunch staples such as an egg-centric dish or Benedict are missing from the menu. Instead, you can find dishes like a turkey sandwich, rigatoni, or duck leg. I ended up going with the burger which was solid, but goes for $25 if you want to add bacon and fries.
VERY limited brunch menu. My drink was about 1.5 oz and cost $12. And was not even good. Didn’t refill sodas for our kids till I asked. Never refilled our tiny water glasses. Brought out the appetizers with the meal. Well, one of them. The other appetizer came out after we were already eating our meal. Poached eggs were pretty much hard boiled. Nice try though. The only reason we went was for something they just took off the menu. I guess if you’re staying in the hotel and are vegan or vegetarian or love chick peas and quinoa it’s great.
Unbelievable food. The restaurant ambiance was wonderful and the staff were polite and caring. Eating Kristen’s food, I found myself discovering new elements of the dish with each bite. The nuances of her food experience leave you wanting to eat anything she may create— it excites you to explore food. Overall a fantastic, must come back, and great experience. The only thing I wish happened differently is that I asked our server if the Executive Chef was in the building because we had flown from Arizona and specifically chose to eat at Arlo because of Kristen. The server was kind and said yes and she’d ask the chef if she had time to say hello— would have been amazing to meet the chef as we were all big fans. We happened to see her from the distance having a quick meeting but alas, we didn’t get a chance to say hello.
Hello RosieR, Thank you for the amazing feedback on your experience. We are so thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed the experience of dining at Arlo Grey. We hope on your next visit we are able to have Chef Kristen come by to say hello. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
The food was overly salty and inedible. In particular, we had the fusilli pasta, the burger, and the malfaldine. A lot of the components on the dishes were rich and overpowering. Although the wait staff were pleasant and accommodating, the overall service was lacking. My food sat cold as I waited for 10 minutes to get new set ups since they took my fork with the pasta dish we sent back for being too salty. They left dirty dirty flatware on our table throughout the dinner. We were also presented us with an incorrect check. The dining room was so poorly lit, you couldn’t identify what was on the plate.
We walked away hungry, disappointed, and thirsty from the salt overload. Would not recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to outline the deficiencies in your experience. We do apologize that you meal did not deliver on your expectations. We hope you will consider joining us again in the future. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Excellent food, music a little load
Hello cathyi, Thank you for the great feedback. We hope to see you back soon. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Slow service but interesting/good food. Family style recommended-follow servers recommendations.
Hello KirkZ, Thank you for the feedback about service. We hope to see you again in the near future at Arlo Grey. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Service was terrible. 15 minutes late for our RSVP, so they made us sit in the bar. This despite the fact we could see that the dining room was half empty for the entirety of our meal. The bar was full of drunk idiots with no shoes on from the pool. Service in the bar area was painfully slow.
Hello JeremyW, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I wanted to reach out and apologize that your experience was not to your liking. We do have an active environment at our bar as we are right next to the pool. As for your wait to be seated, I will discuss this with our host team. We apologize that you did not feel it was busy enough to warrant a wait. Please reach out to me to discuss any issues further. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Great date night place. Date near the window and saw the bats! It was aweskme
Thank you for the great note! We hope to see you again in the future. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Great food liked family style approach. Waiter was great! Music annoying and too loud
Hello DaveS, Thank you for the feedback about your experience. We will certainly take your note on the music under consideration. We hope you'll be able to join us again in the near future. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Always impressed by what Kristen Kish is able to create with such simple ingredients! The carrots and corn are always a huge hit! And that crispy rice is a must, but you might want to get your own! By far, one of my favorite date night dinners and we got to see the bats flying away this time!!
Hello Michelle C. Thank you for sharing your note. We always love to hear from guests who had such a great experience. We hope to see you again soon. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Nice staff and setting but the food was not great. The soup was lukewarm and the cheese sandwich did not have enough turkey - poor meat to bread ratio.
We will share your feedback with chef regarding your experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Ambiance and service was great. It did take a very long time for the entrees to come out so they gave us a complimentary app. The biggest disappointment was the gnocchi. I had previously frequented Arlo and they had great Italian gnocchi (pasta/potato). This time I was served a different type of gnocchi that was fried wheat flour. It was unexpected and not good.
Hello Sean, Thank you for sharing your feedback on your meal. We will share your thoughts with Chef and we do hope you will join us again in the future. Please feel free to reach out to me directly to discuss further. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Overall, beautiful space and great service. Space a little noisy. Food a miss, did enjoy Burata, but felt all other food items needed something to bring the flavors together and out. Crispy rice was confusing, flavors not cohesive and served on top was a large piece of bunched cilantro, didn’t make sense. Chicken and Squash, very simple nothing special. The Mulfandini pasta, good, but wanted more from this dish. Grilled Cauliflower lacked salt. Came during 35$ prefixed Urban Roots menu, which I love that you guys are supporting this great local organization, thank you. Overall would comeback and try new items, however would be really upset if I paid full price and got the same quality of food. Will wait to return until reviews on Yelp improve.

Great scenery, the food was plated well, the desserts were AMAZING!
Hello KatK, Thanks for taking the time to share. We hope to see you back soon at Arlo Grey. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
There were 4 of us and we ordered small plates family style all the dishes were very good. They start on the light side and brought out the vegetable type dishes, than the pasta dishes and finished with the protein dishes. Everything we ordered was very flavorful and good.
Hello Bcutty, Thank you for the amazing feedback. We are thrilled by how much you enjoyed the experience. We hope to see you again soon. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
not sure what was happening at the host stand on the day we arrived but whatever it was couldn’t have been proper service expectations. arrived at 6.40pm to check into our 7.00pm restaurant to a nearly empty dining room and hostess asked us to wait at the bar. Was our table unavailable? Was the staff yet to arrive? No reason given. We waited. And waited. 7.00 passes and now we walk to the host stand and wait a little longer. Finally we got walked to an empty table in an empty section of the dining room that had been open since we arrived with a server who was one of the many we saw standing around.
Mind you, the bar was absolutely slammed from a conference group coming to happy hour. The slightest bit of common sense would try to seat guests with dinner reservations AWAY from the bar and into the dining room where wait staff was standing around to elevate pressure from the slow service at the bar due to over crowding.
Mind blown at the lack of basic host skills shown - won’t be back.
Hello Vinny, Thank you for bringing your experience to our attention. We will absolutely discuss your feedback with our host team. We do hope you will decide to join us again in the future. Please feel free to reach out to me directly to further discuss your concerns. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Food was a B-. Too Noisy. Major traffic and parking issues. Server was very good. If you are already at the hotel, it's okay, but otherwise.....
Hello JohnL, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on the experience on the meal. We do hope you will come again and try more of our offerings. We will share your thoughts with our culinary team regarding your meal. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey

Hello HectorQ, Thank you for the kind words regarding the flavors of our meals here at Arlo Grey. We will share your feedback regarding number of options with our culinary team. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
We went to Arlo Grey for their prix fixe menu benefitting Urban Roots. First of all, such an awesome cause and so cool to see a restaurant give back. Our server was so sweet and accommodating and gave great suggestions for wine and our meals. The dishes themselves were gorgeous- the pork collar, burrata, and malfaldini were bomb! I could honestly eat that pasta dish every. damn. day. The interior is cute and quirky, and the whole experience was comfortable yet upscale. Highly recommend!
Hello Megan, thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts on your meal and on supporting Urban Roots! Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
Great food! Would definitely go back
Thank you for the note. We hope to see you again soon. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
I ate at Arlo Grey during their Helping Hands promotion, which offered a 3-course prix fixe menu with wine for $35. It was delicious. For a first course, I had the malfaldini, flat, wide pasta served with a beautifully rich mushroom sauce. My main course was the roasted pork collar with mushrooms and celeriac. Unlike many similar restaurant dishes, the pork tasted freshly cooked, and was nicely brown and crisp on one side. It was sliced and interspersed with thin slices of celeriac. There was also parsely and celery, and a nice morel mushroom sauce. The wine was a decent Beaujolais.
I sat at a high table on the pool side. Though the seat was a stool, it had a low back which made it pretty comfortable. Most of the room is conventional tables. The bar is stylish.
Hello Epicurated, Thank you for the great feedback on your experience. We hope to see you again in the near future. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
We enjoyed their charity pre fixe tasting menu. All four tasting plates exceeded expectations. The homemade pasta was to die for. The chicken was beyond perfectly prepared. We can't say enough good things about our experience. Definitely check it out when you're in Austin!
Hello AlexC, Thank you for coming in and taking part in our Helping Hands promotion in support of Urban Roots. We're so happy to hear how much you enjoyed dining with us. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey

Hello kcollier, Thank you so much for the outstanding feedback. We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the experience. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
They made my birthday so perfect!! Loved the food and service :)
Hello Tracyholiday, thank you for celebrating with us. We look forward to your next visit. Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
This is the best restaurant in Austin. It’s laid back while still being stylish. It’s affordable as hell. They serve up some of the most innovative dishes I’ve ever had.
The sweet corn and carrots with smoked yogurt might be the best thing I have ever eaten. The crispy rice dish I just had melted my brain. I have tried at least 15 different dishes here and all have been perfect.
Arlo Grey is a reason to go to Austin. It should be on any foodie bucket list.
WOW!!! Thank you so much for the great feedback. We hope you can make it back on your next visit to Austin. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
We went there for a birthday celebration dinner. They made it very special by saying happy birthday to the person by name. They treated us like VIPs while we were there. There is a wonderful view of the Congress Street bridge and the bats flying out at dusk. The food was very good. Service was very good also.
Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us. We hope to see you again in the near future. Best, Luis Benedetto General Manager, Arlo Grey
