    Very trendy and chic atmosphere. Very polite and attentive service. They had us a window-side table reserved and the food was excellent, as expected from the reviews. Portions are small so an appetizer is recommended (burrata). My filet mignon was cooked to perfection. My wife’s Chilean sea bass and daughter’s salmon were tasty. No kids menu, beware. Went for bottle of cava, and didn’t get to try the many cocktails. Overall a bit pricey but pleasant experience with wonderful views in relaxed atmosphere. The lounge music, fusion style food all add to the experience. Not suitable for families.

    We had a great experience. Upscale ambiance without being at all stuffy. The service was top notch and the food was excellent. I had the scallops and my husband had the shrimp. We also ordered the charcuterie appetizer because I was a bit afraid my husband wouldn’t get enough with just the entree. It was the perfect choice/amount. We would highly recommend!!

    We were seated early - hostess and waitress were very good. We were checked on appropriately. Food is outstanding - limited menu but this is the second time I have eaten there and the quality of the meal is outstanding! Great chill vibe while dining or having drinks - low key quiet place for a nice meal or just some drinks.

    The food was absolutely on point. We shared scallops and sea bass. The charcuterie was a little disappointing with no jelly or chutney, but fine, extra big lots of cheese. Drinks were delicious. Green beans were flavorful and so was the risotto. Our server was a bit snotty but otherwise a 10.

    We shared 2 appetizers, the crab cake and the burrata/tomato, both delicious! The sea bass was excellent, nice entree portion but not too much. My husband enjoyed the scallops. Chocolate flourless torte was a perfect ending. Small, intimate atmosphere overlooking the river area made for a nice view!

    Overall, our experience was good. We were originally seated at a table next to two tables of very loud women drinking quite a bit but the hostess was able to move us to a quieter area. Our charcuterie board was very basic and boring. The tapas were had very very good.

Loved listening to Lainey Love on Wednesday. Heard she sings on Mondays too. Arco also has table for two outside overlooking the river.

    We had a delightful experience at this new tapas restaurant in downtown Savannah. The ambience is modern and comfortable, the service is excellent, the food is surprisingly good, and the prices are fairly moderate. The only thing that diminished our experience was the extraordinary time it took to deliver our meals to our table. Apparently, the kitchen was backed up for some reason and we didn't get served until some 45 minutes after we ordered. But we still had a delightful time at this delightful little restaurant.

    Beautiful space with live music (we were there on a Wednesday) and perfect lighting. My seat overlooked the river, while my husband was seated next to a large mirror so his view was of himself (thankfully he’s not bad to look at 😉) ha. We assumed they were short staffed, as it took a very long time to get our drinks and there was only one server for our entire section (and possible more, for all we know), who was great, but not the kind of attentiveness that is to be expected. We enjoyed our cocktails and food, but the service side of things was lacking a bit.

    ARCO is a quiet hidden gem amongst the highly active historic district waterfront. The food and service are excellent. The best specialty cocktails anywhere in Savannah. A comfortable dinning room with cushy chairs, multiple seating areas and some of the best tables for 2/4 next to windows overlooking the Savannah. Been to Arco several times and it never fails to impress.

    Arco was delightfully calm & had a beautiful ambiance as we enjoyed our drinks and food. The drinks were great! The appetizer of the burrata and toast was absolutely outstanding. At first we were disappointed with how small the menu was considering we are used to having Atleast duck or lamb options. However, the filet mignon and the sea bass were incredible. The sea bass was by far the best I have personally tasted. I do wish they had a dessert menu, that would have been an awesome pairing after a great meal.

    Arco is our go to place and we love it there - and it is always a five, actually a 5+! Not sure if last night was an off night, maybe coming off of St Patrick's celebration but the warmth and friendliness of the staff was not there. The food was very good. The drinks were very good. The decor -- cannot be beat in town. There was not one smile or friendly greeting - we actually almost felt like we were intruding. We love it at Arco and will be back again soon and am sure they will be up to their usual fantastic standard.

    It was a seasonally hot day. Our reservation was for 8pm. When we arrived we realized immediately the air conditioning wasn’t working. They one small fan facing the table we were sitting at. No one offered any apology nor explanation why the air wasn’t working so we asked. We enjoyed our dinner and would definitely make sure the air is working before we dine there again.

    We weren’t sure about this place when we first walked in - it’s more of a cocktail, so the dinner menu is limited. But our choices (scallops and sea bass) were very well prepared and satisfying. My Old Fashioned was delicious, and there was live music at a comfortable level - a singer performing classics from the American Song book. Great ambiance, and views of the Savannah river.
