Excellent food and service worth many return visits. Bomba rice, bone marrow, lettuce gems, and Cadiz gin cocktail were absolutely excellent. On a previous visit, we sampled bacalao, roasted carrots, and baked eggplant. Again, all terrific. Churros, which are new to the menu, could be firmer and needed chocolate. The ambience is great -lively without being loud. Run, don't walk to this great restaurant - absolutely fantastic !

Although the food was pretty good, the service was unfortunately terrible. One server spilled a pitcher of water on me (a quick apology but other than an extra napkin did nothing to make up for my wet leg and back), the main course came immediately after our appetizer before we had a chance to finish, and it and took too long to get wine to go along with dinner. When the bill came, I looked at the total and put my credit card in. The waiter returned the bill with a different total without telling me (he forgot to add the wine - which of course I would pay for but not saying anything is unacceptable).

Cocktails were really good. Server did a good job recommending cocktail based on type of liquor each of us liked. All small plates we’re really , by order of favorite burnt eggplant, prawns, cauliflower, foigras, bone marrow, potatoes. Pig mamba was excellent. We had the chocolate and pistachio dessert. Service started out really great, but as they got busy, we felt a little neglected. The environment is really elegant but not stuffy. This was my second time and I will definitely go back again.

First time trying Arroz, but the favorable reviews persuaded me it was worth a try. I am very glad I did. Food and service were excellent. It's a little noisy in there, so you cannot have whispered conversations. The menu is innovative. I would not recommend it for people who do not have adventurous palates, but if you are interested in trying this or that, you will be rewarded with delicious food. Kudos too for wines by the glass at a fair price that were very enjoyable.

I have already made plans to return.

Loved everything about the food and decor. However, the check-in was confusing. There was no one at the door, so we walked to the back of the restaurant and there was no host there, either. Finally, we realized that we had to check in with a woman was was walking around the restaurant with an iPad (who didn't say anything to us as we walked by her to get to the back of the restaurant). Despite this odd start, we enjoyed the rest of our meal, and the wait staff otherwise was excellent.

We shared 8 dishes with friends (10 if you count desserts) and not one was a dud. Top favorites in the group were the burned eggplant spread, beet salad, fideo noodles with clams, and patatas bravas. Fried cauliflower, salt cod fritters, and octopus were good as well, just not quite as memorable. Lamb ribs were tasty but a bit fatty for the price. The pistachio pastry and the cookies were also crowd pleasers. The cocktails earn the label "craft": interesting pairings of ingredients and minute attention to preparation and presentation. The only reason not to rate Arroz 5 stars was the glacially slow progress of dishes out of the kitchen. We appreciated that they grouped them and brought several at a time, but we had a couple of 15-20 minute waits between "courses." 2 1/2 hours for a weeknight dinner with friends. Something off in the kitchen that night? Otherwise, service was impeccable.

Went for lunch with friends. The $25 price fixe lunch menu is a bargain and could even be shared. Large portions. Food is exceptionally delicious! Service friendly, but professional.
Staff well trained and competent.
No complaints whatsoever. Had fun time.

The food was just terrific! Our group (Spaniards, French, Belgian and American) really enjoyed the creativity and the taste of the food drawing from its Spanish and Moroccan influences.

We had a wonderful person waiting on our table of 6, very attentive and effective. Thank you!

We ate here on a Saturday night before a concert at the nearby Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. Although warned in reviews about the noise, if you sit in one of the charming booths in the early evening, it is really quite cozy and easy to talk. Our waiter and additional staff were very friendly and attentive, which was helpful because there are a lot of food and drink options not listed on the menu. All our dishes were fantastic, but the Moroccan lamb shank variation on osso buco was unbelievable and generously sized, so much so that we didn't get to try dessert. Nevertheless, the staff poured us two rosé sparkling wines to bid us farewell.

Second time at Arroz. Drinks are quite good (andolusiana) with a great selection of funky cocktails. Food was really quite good. Enjoyed the Bomba special w/ lobster that was flavorful and filled with different textures. It was tangy, savory, hints of asia (at least to me) although it was a spanish dish! Flat bread is fantastic and the eggplant had a bit of bite to it with some textures that made it stand out. Potata was ok, a bit bland, and a bit over baked- no need for that one again. Service was also a bit slow although it warmed up in the latter half of our two hour time at the table.

I have dined at many of Mike Isabella's restaurants. Arroz is VERY loud and it is hard to have a conversation without being distracted by the noise. Food is very good, similar to what you find at some of his other restaurants ie: Kapnos Kouzina and Requin. Specialty chicken dish was particularly good. Waiter was good but overly solicitous. Would still recommend and would also return

Truly nice experience. We are vegetarian and had a good selection. We tried two of their Tapas and ordered their Paella, along with a couple of their drinks. The potatoes bravas are something that all tapas restaurants have on their menu. Arroz's take on this classic is particularly interesting - love the way they cut into perfect cubes and the presentation. The flavors were perfect as well. Their burnt eggplant with cauliflower had excellent flavors - the accompanying bread was perfect. The Paella was of a generous portion and was nicely prepared - although maybe slightly over-cooked and slightly high on salt. The drinks were excellent - they had a nice take on an almond/vodka drink that evoked some exotic location. Their strawberry/ginger drink was wonderful as well. Both were a bit high on the quantity of ice though. We also had two of their deserts - chocolate pudding and pistachio. The chocolate pudding was simply awesome. Great presentation and certain to please. Their pistachio based one was nice too - great flavors between the pistachio, pistachio sauce, and citrus sorbet providing an interesting combination. This was just not as appreciated as the Chocolate one..... The pricing seemed a bit on the high side, but unique experiences don't tend to be cheap. Nice evening.

The three course lunch option was wonderful. The food was creative, delicious, and beautifully presented. Each course had so many different levels of flavors. I had the burnt eggplant, arctic char and a chocolate mousse-like dessert. The portions were generous. Our waiter was fabulous. I loved the atmosphere- it was beautiful without the snobbiness. I definitely would recommend Arroz!
