I am so sorry you had this experience at Arlo's. This should not have happened and it will be addressed. As owners, we live by "the customer is always right" philosophy and we expect the same from our staff. I sincerely apologize.

Dined on a Friday night and the place was busy. Enjoyed the live guitarist who was very talented. The restaurant's decore was cute, the service top notch, the food delicious. I had the chicken marsala which was excellent. Definitely return on my next trip.

We mostly chose this restaurant because of its appealing outside patio area. It was a weeknight and not too busy: 6-7 outside tables and maybe 3 inside tables. The owner/manager told us the wait staff might be a little slower than usual. Unfortunately, she never...More
