    We ordered six different dishes and they were all absolutely wonderful. Though it's not on the menu, they also offered a non-alcoholic cocktail option when we asked about one (delicious). We enjoyed every waiter / food runner we encountered / were served by and appreciated that every one of them knew we needed gluten-free dishes and made sure to mention it / know what ingredients were which was a huge peace of mind. Cannot over-state this! We'll definitely be back, it was such a special meal.

    As fans of Top Chef, my husband and I were really excited to come here, and we were not disappointed. The obvious stand out on the menu was the burger--and I'm not usually impressed by burgers. The whipped potatoes on top were perfect, and there was enough brightness to cut the rich flavors. The real hit for us, though, was the fried steam buns. Incredible texture, and incredible to drag through the eggplant and mushroom concoction they're served along with. Incredible food, though, is only part of the experience, and I'm pleased that the ambiance and service rise to the occasion--which isn't easy for a restaurant in a hotel lobby. The greenery everywhere makes the space feel lush, and our server Nadia was warm and knowledgable, providing just enough guidance without every being pushy. I look forward to future visits and recommend Arlo Grey without hesitation to others.

    I have been looking forward to this dinner for ages. Visiting the area and wanted to try out Kristen's restaurant. I liked the small plate share idea and all of our plates were amazing. We started with the Kampachi crudo and burrata salad and both did not disappoint. We followed with the Homemade Rigatoni which was a lovely lemony summer treat. Our main was the Halibut which was served with a light salad and we finished up with the carrot cake. Amazing dinner with great service. Servers explained the dish thoroughly and were attentive to our drink top ups. Restaurant was busy so it was slightly loud to have a conversation but it was great to see everyone having a good time - would definitely come back again.

    Great food and creativity. The location (inside the Line Hotel) gives the restaurant an LA vibe, but it's very approachable. Cocktails are pricey, small but very, very, good.

    The food was extremely subpar and we had such great expectations for this restaurant! The drinks were delicious, but the menu, in my opinion is all over the place. Sashimi, pasta, and Whoopi’s pie don’t make sense on the same menu. Our waitress never came to check on us and food wasn’t hot. Disappointing experience

    The servers are absolutely delightful, efficient and knowledgable. My only, tiny complaint is that they brought me a different cocktail than the one I ordered. That said, it was DELICIOUS and as soon as I took a sip I had no problem finishing it. The food, ambiance, lighting, all is great. And I love being at a restaurant where the tables aren't crammed close together! We'll be back.

    Crispy Rice is a MUST! Also they don't skimp on the drinks, you're gonna want to try them all. Three courses of excellence and then an otherworldly dessert. They are very pro at acommodating dietary restrictions but definitely go for the steak, make sure to try the pasta and everything here is absolutely made with love and extreme care.

    All the food here is recognizable but with very tasty twists. LOVED the waygu, sticky rice, heirloom tomatoes dishes especially. Olives so good ! Maybe a little too different for my taste was the lime sorbet but hey you win some, you loose some.

    My sister and I (who are both vegetarian) went for a "sister date," where we just try new restaurants and have a good time eating good food. I mentioned both of these things in the note when I reserved. Our server gave us the rundown of what was vegetarian and what could be made vegetarian. They also brought us champagne flutes to celebrate the "sister date." The food was absolutely delicious (we ate about half the menu), and the restaurant had a cool, relaxed vibe. We would definitely go back and would definitely recommend it.

    Came to Arlo Grey back in 2019 and had a phenomenal experience, however was disappointed in our second experience last night. Best thing we had was the heirloom tomato dish, and the milk buns sans the rest of the dish. Our steak was cooked perfectly, but lacked any seasoning which was disappointing as it was smothered in sauce that also had no flavor. Our server was kind but inattentive when it came to actually cultivating an experience. I do hope this place finds the spark it had on our first experience again, because that would be something to come back for.

    Food was good but expected a lot given the high praise of the chef. Service was ok but seemed a bit uncoordinated at times - new dishes were brought before we had finished the course, waitress came to refill water every 2 minutes, there was no salt and pepper grinders and she brought me take-away sachets of salt and pepper, which I wouldn't expect for such a high-end place.
