    Birthday dinner for a 13 year old. He is very picky. Radicchio was perfect, favorite dish. Wagyu bavette was over seasoned. Pork was too fatty. Lime sorbet was too bright. Bartender made great Shirley Temples. His 14 year old brother. Roasted cauliflower was perfect. Wagyu bavette was over to midwell. Me. The entire meal was excellent, service was kind and consistent. I particularly liked the roasted cauliflower and the kale with quinoa. We agreed at a 4.5 out of 5 stars as a group, but I give a 5 because my kids are spoiled and overly critical.

    It was ok. Menu was a bit random and small. Fried rice was the only standout but quite overpriced for white rice, green beans and an untraceable amount of crabmeat.

    We were thrilled to experience dining at a restaurant of one of our Top Chef favorites. Kristin blends flavors in such a wonderful and subtle way that their depth has a really pleasurable reward. We had the crude and burrata to start and we’re both fantastic. We then split the rigatoni w/tomatillo and the lobster tortellini—again perfection—just wish I had some crostini’s to soak up all the sauce for the tortellini! We only had one entree-the halibut, again it was best halibut We have ever tasted—her flavors were just so balanced and complimentary and the fish cooked beautifully. The wines were an excellent selection for pairings—we had the cava to start and a lovely Chardonnay that paired well with both the pasta and fish. And to top off, the space felt inviting and fun, with fun textures and colors.

    The food was even better than expected and our server Spencer took great care of us. We wanted to eat light but everything was so good.. and they sent us an extra dessert. We left incredibly full even though the portions are on the small side. Would definitely go back for the rest of the menu.

    From start to finish, a great dining experience. The restaurant vibe is classy but not off-putting with a lot of touches that make you feel at home. The food was amazing! I wanted to order a second Crispy Rice but went for the Chocolate Cake (a reconstructed Ho-Ho, which Spencer, my server, told me all about among other things about the restaurant -- he was terrific)...and The Den drink (their take on the Old Fashioned) was perfection. I need to book another trip to Austin NOW to get back to Arlo Grey by Kristin Kish. Run, don't walk.

    Arlo Grey by Kristen KishResponded on June 10, 2022Jimmy, Thank you for leaving such a great review! We are so pleased to know that you enjoyed your dining experience, and that Spencer provided you with an exceptional service! We truly hope you will return and visit us again sometime soon!

    Kristen Kish and the whole staff at Arlo Grey has impressed me yet again. An old friend was visiting Austin who I had not seen in 30 years... so I wanted to choose a restaurant that would allow reminiscing and catching up without any surprises of cocktails, service, or food. No pressure. The Old Fashioneds were as perfect as the view. Sitting in front of floor to ceiling glass, my old friend remarked that they do not have squirrels where he lives (Hawaii) and I look down and there is a squirrel a foot a way. I felt like we had a very special experience from the moment we sat down. Initially, I had asked him if he was hungry, and maybe we should go to a traditional Texas steak house and he said no, no, if you think this place is special let's do it. I had incorrectly thought from my past experiences that there were a lot of small shareable plates that left you hungry at the end. I was so wrong about that! We started with sourdough and burrata (great!), then the Fried Steam Buns which were amazing. The crispy rice arrived with the beef rib which was so large it overflowed the serving plate. Our waiter Charlie was wonderful, took care of us, did not intrude on two old friends telling old and new stories. We both ate and talked to our heart's content. I have never been served a beef rib like this in my life. Texas Wagyu melt in your mouth rib... seriously unreal! More than enough for us. Blue corn bread and radicchio are included with the rib. We were able to share an intimate conversation of what has been happening in our lives for the past 30 years while raving about every new course that arrived at the table and watching the sun set over the bat bridge. Does not get any better than two old friends creating new memories. Ten of ten. Twenty of ten if that is possible. If you need a slam dunk amazing meal, attentive/not intrusive service (thanks for all great recommendations Charlie!), perfect cocktail, and breathtaking view then may I suggest Arlo Grey?

    Arlo Grey by Kristen KishResponded on June 10, 2022Kimberly, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed and heart warming review. We could not be any more grateful to know that you and your friend enjoyed catching up for lost time, and trust that you were in great hands with Charlie as your server! We thank you for choosing to spend this special occasion with us and hope that you two will reunite with us again, some time in the near future!

    The food was so bland and underwhelming. We were looking forward to the visit and left feeling so lackluster. We didn’t even finish some of the dishes. We asked to extend our reservation to 2 more people and told they didn’t have room but then we got there and the table had room for 2 more and the restaurant was pretty empty. We ordered the lobster tortellini and a rice dish - neither had much taste or flavor to it. The service was good - we enjoyed our waiter and they were attentive to us.

    We are big fans of K Kish from Top Chef snd Ming. Our waiter Bran asked if we wanted our order as three courses or two. We said two. That did not happen. We ordered the sourdough with feta. Olive chunks were too big. Way too much cheese vs bread ratio. Crispy rice arrived, my entree. But not my husband’s halibut. So he sat with nothing while I ate. Then his fish finally showed up, with no explanation from the waiter. Flavors were good, but we also eat with our eyes- the restaurant is too dark. We originally planned on.dessert, but weren’t in the mood by the end of our meal. Disappointed as we are first time visitors to Austin.

    Arlo Grey by Kristen KishResponded on June 10, 2022Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and for providing feedback of your experience. Exceptional service and quality dishes are what we strive for, and hope you will give us an opportunity to make up for this experience in the future.

    Beautiful space and atmosphere and they also easily accommodated adding an extra person on our rez. Food was exquisite and everyone was happy overall but the service was such a bummer. We are an easy going crew and most of the group has worked service industry so we still tipped of course and enjoyed our night but I just have to say when you spend over 700$ at dinner the service should at least be adequate and guests should be taken care of. We were often looking around for our server, we had food served to us and some had no silverware, empty drinks. We ordered desert and they also asked about birthday boy and brought out an extra for him but came to the table with a candle and actually said, “so is it somebody’s birthday here “ in the most sad voice ever, we actually had a good laugh about that. Bartender was excellent and I wish we would’ve just stayed at the bar. Food was amazing.

    Was we had such a great experience dining at Arlo Gray for anniversary celebration. They were very accommodating and actually took the time and made our anniversary special. Our waitperson, Steph, also cooks occasionally and she had such a great recommendation for us for an evening of food euphoria. We went on a Sunday night and so we had an amazing seat overlooking Lady Bird Lake. We really enjoyed the bunnies hopping around outside the window. Definitely this will be a place we revisit again and recommend to others.

    they recommended family style, but all of the meals were single size portions. the pastas, antipasti and fish were the better options, the beef rib was a waste of money. great cocktails and decent selection of wines and beers. probably a better place for drinks and appetizers than an actual meal. must pay for parking as well.
