The food is fantastic, phenomenal wine selection. Kind of a weird thing to recommend but the bread service is worth the extra money. Bread comes from sister bakery Easy Tiger and the flavored butters will rock your mouth. And save room for dessert. This is one of the top 5 in Austin.

I've only had a glass of wine, a cocktail, and their charcuterie board here, but I am definitely looking forward to dinner there soon. They unfortunately didn't seat us in the main dining room so we didn't get to experience the lovely space. But other than that, their house made pate, roulade, and mustards were impressive. Service was spot-on.

The anchovy butter and bread is amazing. It is a great salty and flavorful way to start your meal here. I'd also highly recommend all the desserts. Each and every one.

I had heard so much about Arro that I was so happy to finally go. The restaurant has rustic modern decor. It's simple and elegant. I had originally thought the menu would be small with only a handful of items to choose from but there was a nice variety. We ordered the steak tartar to start. It was fresh and satisfying. We order the herb salad to split. The blend of herbs was delightful but the nuts that and the size of everything made it hard to pick up with a fork. For the main course, I ordered the lamb shank and Frankie ordered the duck. The lamb shank was huge. We could have easily shared it. The flavors were rich and succulent. The duck was a smaller, lighter dish but also have wonderful flavors. This is definitely up there on my list.

My Husband and I tried Arro for the first time last weekend and we loved it! Our Waiter was great and the food was outstanding! We will definitely be going back again!

In the land of Tex Mex and tacos, the French cuisine at Arro is a welcome break from the norm. With its lively bistro atmosphere and convenient 6th Street location, Arro feels like a secret hot spot tucked away in a bustling metropolis. But it's definitely not a secret. It can get quite crowded and the table spacing is--shall we say--intimate, so don't expect a quiet, secluded retreat. The thing that makes me fantasize about my next visit to Arro is the menu--not just what's on it now, but what will be on it when it changes (which is frequent). The $25 prix fixe menu makes it easier to justify heading there on a random weeknight, while the "regular" menu with such fancy indulgences as antelope, lamb and duck gives you the option to splurge for a special occasion. Either way you choose to do it, be sure to end your meal with dessert (because you wouldn't otherwise?). The rosewater profiteroles are light and flavorful if that's your thing, and the dark chocolate pot de creme is the fuel of euphoria. And can we please discuss the "bread pairings" section of the menu? Arro serves freshly baked bread from Easy Tiger, so if the nice server offers you some bread, take it. And then ask for some of the amazing seasonal whipped butters. And then rejoice. Sure, bread and butter leads to ruining dinner, but pace yourself--it's worth the struggle to consume as much of it as you can. If you're looking for something a little different (cuisine different--not Austin different), check out Arro for some buttery, bready goodness. From the most discerning palette to the palette that's cool with macaroni and cheese, the menu offers something to please everyone.
