Absolutely fantastic food in a beautiful setting. Our table of 6 was well taken care of and we ordered nearly one of everything on the menu. They also made some nice substitutions for the vegetarian eater with us.

We had an amazing visit at Arlo Grey. Every dish we had was amazing. The standouts were the halibut, torn pasta, and crispy rice dishes. The cocktail menu complemented the food well. The restaurant has a very beautiful setting and has a relaxed, calming vibe. Our table was close to the lobby and it was very quiet. There are a lot of great restaurants in Austin. This is one of the best.

I never review restaurants because I worked in the industry for twenty years and am very particular. This was great: some unexpected flavors and textures that played well together and really exceptional service from bar to server to food runner.

Waited a long time for a host to take us to the table. We had a reservation and said it was a special event (anniversary) but it was never acknowledged. The drinks were good, and probably the best things we had. Most of the dishes were just ok, nothing stand out. The best thing we had was the olives and bread, but the chucks of bread were so large they were hard to eat, and the olives were whole so wouldn’t stay on the bread. For a $200 dinner on a special night, it was disappointing

My Wife and I have not gone out to a nice restaurant in a long time and Arlo Grey surpassed all expectations. Food was AHMAZING and service was soo great.

I don't drink alcohol and the bartender had so much fun creating some delicious mock tails.

Will definitely be back!

When you book a restaurant such as this, you hope for three things; great ambiance, great service, great food. And some part of you is nervous that one of those things (or more) will falter. Not Arlo Grey. The dining room is fabulously appointed, with beautiful views, the service was friendly and just the right level of attentive...and the food. Oh, the food!! The meal was the kind of meal where everyone stops talking to focus on how wonderful each dish is. The wine was the kind of wine where you take a picture of the label because you want to remember it and try to find it later. A very special evening.

Celebrated my engagement with my fiancé after proposing on the rooftop of P6. Service was amazing. Our waiter Bran was so knowledgeable about the menu and provided some really good recommendations. Food was amazing and the ambiance of the restaurant was 10/10. Although Kristen Kish wasn’t there, I could really taste her perspective on food as a big top chef fan. Can’t wait to go back soon!

Disappointing. Despite the pedigree of the headline chef, the food simply wasn’t very good. We had: a peach salad where the peaches weren’t particularly fresh or flavorful, and which was overwhelmed by an overly-strong bleu cheese; cheese dumplings that were clearly home-made yet tasted exactly like store-bought fried cheese sticks; a “crispy rice” dish that tasted predominantly like burnt rice; and a burger which, while tasty, was a disturbingly accurate facsimile of a McDonalds Big Mac.

Absolutely wonderful experience. This was a belated birthday meal, and the only reservation I made while in Austin. I was a little worried I’d set my expectations too high but the restaurant delivered.

The food was beautiful and tasted even better than it looked. They worked with my diet restriction (gluten allergy) which I wasn’t expecting but was appreciated.

Our server, Bran, was great and even gave suggestions of where in Austin to visit.

Can’t recommend highly enough!
