    Portions are small but we did a handful and shared the tuna crudo needs to be served with chips or crackers The pasta was really good . The ambiance I did not like it’s so dark inside they need better lighting it’s not a romantic type restaurant so it felt very somber with the darkness . Food was good not the best I’ve ever had but good !

    Service was much to be desired. They added a dish we never ordered we were just thinking about.....they were pushing on us and then delivered by someone else where we couldn't dispute the order. Then they kept rushing us through the meal when there was no need as the place still had many open tables. Food was slightly saltier than needed to be...

    The service was excellent, and the ambiance was pleasant. However, the wine selection could be expanded and improved. The sourdough and Malfadini pasta were outstanding, as was the burger patty. While the crispy rice dish was lacking in acidity and flavor, the saffron aioli made it overly heavy. To enhance the dish, consider adding crunchy chili oil, sesame seeds, pickled ginger, and more cucumbers. Additionally, the inclusion of haricot verts seemed out of place and clashed with the other flavors.

    Aldo Grey was the first of our culinary journey in Austin and we were very excited for the experience. Service overall was slower than expected and our server forgot to bring our drinks. The food however, did not disappoint. It was creative, different from the norm and delicious! We ordered too many dishes, but enjoyed them all anyway. I would recommend checking out Arlington Grey if in Austin!

    Thought we would try it since we were in town. Personal expectation was high. Not exactly sure what I expected but this was not it. Went with price fixed menu, since four of the items would have been what would have chosen. I found that char-grill flavor dominated a number of the items and the number of competing elements caused a confusion with my palette. Waiter was nice but not very interactive so overall experience was dampened a bit. Saw other staff very engaged with their tables and that was nice to see. Space is very open so sound levels with patrons and the music was a bit distracting. Finally, the staff seemed to set up a makeshift office/break room in the southeast corner of the restaurant. My table was right next to this and the activity was visible to me since they chose not to close the curtain. I could also overhear their conversations and laughter. Staff would go in and out, joking loudly and having breaks, and eating.

    The service at Arlo Grey is impeccable, with an attentive staff who are passionate about providing a memorable dining experience. The menu from Chef Alex is a mix of creativity and innovation, offering a tantalizing selection of dishes that showcase the finest ingredients sourced from local producers and suppliers. From the fresh Tuna Crudo to the creamy Burrata, there's something to please every palate. One standout dish is the Crispy Rice, a unique must order again experience. The flavors are outstanding, with each component complementing the other to create a joy of taste sensations. From the creative mind of Top Chef winner Kristin Kish, Arlo Grey is more than just a restaurant – it's an experience. From the exquisite cuisine to the impeccable service and inviting ambiance, every aspect of the dining experience is crafted to perfection. Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply looking to indulge in a culinary adventure, Arlo Grey is sure to delight and impress.

    Although the food and drinks were slow in getting out to us, our server was very apologetic and gave us periodic updates throughout the process. When we did get our order, it was great! THE best burratta I've had in my entire life, and the steamed buns were inspired. Happy to support a queer owned business.

    Food was good, service poor. Took 20min to get a server to our table. By that time , we knew what we wanted. We knew what we wanted and ordered right away. Received our first course within 5 minutes. We had no utensils, napkins or water. Received our cocktails. She left so quickly we couldn’t ask for water. Server never came back. Finally stopped a random member of staff to ask for everything. Took 40 minutes to receive water from when we sat. Took another 30 minutes to receives next courses.

    Food was delicious, but the fact that all dishes were family style was not explained to us upfront. Waiter seemed surprised when we ordered 2 appetizers and 2 grain dishes to share and said we should get chicken dish too. Restaurant was half empty and service was still not the level it should have been for this price point. No mocktails or N/A beers on menu. We skipped dessert so we could leave.

    Hostess wasn’t very friendly at first but eventually warmed up. Waitress was great but service was fairly slow. Lighting was pretty dark it was hard to see the menu (this is coming from someone in their younger 30’s who enjoys a moodier dinner ambience).

    Ambiance was somber and dark when from pics I thought it would be bright and fresh. Food was, well, missing something? Flavors didn’t pop, verging on bland. Is that beet we’re eating? Burrata served way too cold, mushrooms underneath could have been a lot of things as well. Halibut and cauliflower were better, but not great. Sat at a large booth which was fine, but after scooting back there realized there was a TON of food crumbs we had to wipe off our pants and the cushions. Gross. Service? He could not have cared any less. Was he upset with us? His job? Life in general? It was amusing but in a sad sort of way.
