    Wonderful bistro/bar setting more typical of NYC, but located in a smaller community in Northwest Arkansas. Set in an previous downtown car dealership, layout is spacious but cozy. Wonderful ambiance, lighting, colorations. I had Cuban Chicken Fried Steak for $14, just spicey enough , ate all I wanted and had a take home box which I had for lunch the next day. My wife had the salmon for $19 and the same applied. Wonderful brownie sundae that we did to take home, wanted to have a second one but too full. We will go back many times even though it is 45 minutes away

    Our group of 4 agreed that this was the best food we have had in a restaurant in a very long time. We tried 4 entrees and they were all delicious! Service was excellent. The band "sons of Otis Malone" were playing and were outstanding. Very talented and entertaining. We will definitely return and have already told our friends about our new favorite restaurant!

    I loved the new menu. Service was great and the food was scrumptious. The Justin Cabernet Wine recommended by the waitress was a very good choice and of course the signature Aviators were yummy. Next time I am leaving room for desert. They looked amazing.

    The restaurant is located in scenic downtown Siloam Springs in a renovated but old building. It is a great, wide open space but the architect was thoughtful in positioning ceiling panels to create smaller, almost intimate feeling spaces. We had the large corner booth that over looked the main room near the bar. I had fun answering the trivia questions that I could over hear from the bars quiz contest. The lively folks in the bar added to the overall easy-going feel of an upscale but not uppity dining experience. I want to give a big thumbs up for the wait staff! They were mostly unobtrusive except when we needed assistance or had questions. Beyond that, Elizabeth took exceptional care of us during our meal. And what a meal! Wow!

    We enjoyed our evening. From the appetizer to the dessert, each dish was an adventure. My husband and I both declared the Peach Bourbon Pork Chop the winner. We sat at the counter and enjoyed watching the chefs prepare our meal. The unusual desserts (Blackberry Snickerdoodle Whoopie Pie with an Italian Cream soda) were a delight. We love the fact that the ingredients are local and fresh. It was a memorable evening!

    Dined on 6/7/2014
    Enjoyed the food and really like decor...well done!! However, before dinner was over, karaoke began (about 8 PM) in bar area with most annoying noise for diners. Restaurant needs to decide what they want to be...or at least when they want to start bar noise....certainly should be AFTER dinner hours. There is no noise separation between the two...only a wall that goes up about 2/3's height of ceiling. Noise big issue for our table. Food quite good, very well presented, and service was pretty good. Great offering for the town and great for those traveling between Tulsa and Northwest Arkansas and doable drive for many willing to drive 20-25 minutes from Fayetteville (home to UofA) or Bentonville area.

    Once again, the food was outstanding from bread, to appetizer to entree. Preparation, presentation and taste all superb. Unfortunately, the service is still lacking. Turnover appears to be the challenge as the entire waitstaff appeared new. Stop the revolving door of waitstaff, and I will become a regular.

    This was our first time at 28 but won't be our last. Drinks and food were good and we loved our server, Sydney and bartender, Phillip. My husband's pork was a bit too salty and my steak salad not as spicy as I expected. We were able to comfortably converse though the restaurant was packed with a wide range-in-age fellow patrons. Our overall experience was favorable!

    I am very picky about where I eat and I was very surprised and impressed with the food. I had the rotisserie chicken which was excellent. My husband had the salmon which was very good also. The presentation was beautiful and wait staff was very good and friendly. This is now one of my top 5 NW AR restaurants.

    Dined on 4/3/2014
    We decided to drive over to celebrate our anniversary. Our choice of seating was in the bar or the dining room. We chose the dining room so it would be less noisy. It is very open so we could still hear the band. We were waited on right away and the wait staff was friendly. The appetizer ran a little late and we had to remind them to bring our bread. My wife had the salmon and felt like it was a littly dry and the quinoa was bland. The other side was great. I had the pork chop with sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts and it was very good. The wine the server recommened was good. We plan on going back. Overall it was worth the trip.

    Service was absolutely terrible poor kid was just a bad waiter. They were out of half the food we ordered and wine. Seems like could be a GREAT,place, but wasn't. Pretzel bread and appetizers were great, but entrees were blah. May try again just because love the concept of this cool place in small downtown.

    The food was excellent....but I was less than impressed by the 1 hour wait from order time until our food arrived. The waiter was very busy and not very attentative to our table. He even tried to make jokes about how long we were waiting for our food. The table next to us came in 20 minutes after us and had dinner finished before we got our plates. On top of the wait, they were out of most of the entree selections for dinner. They only had a few entrees to chose from. The food was great, but I wouldn't eat there again if I had to be there 1 1/2 hours for dinner.

    We were surprised to find such a fabulous restaurant in a tiny town but 28 Springs constantly exceeds our expectations. The bar staff is knowledgeable, servers are prompt and friendly, ambiance is relaxing and interesting and the food is ever-amazing. The menu changes on a regular basis (often based on what is available locally or at the town's farmer's market) so there is always something new to sample. We love 28!

    The food was outstanding. We were there for New Year's Eve, so it was a fixed menu, but the options were balanced for a variety of tastes. The dishes are original, creative and delicious. Service was a little uneven. You could tell that the servers were fairly new or not used to serving in "better restaurants', but they were very pleasant, so it really didn't matter much. I am sure that it is difficult to find experienced people in Siloam Springs. The energy level was very high, overall, but I am not sure how it would be if it were not a holiday. The server said, "We are not usually this busy", even though the restaurant was only about 2/3 full. The bar area looks very nice. We will definitely make the drive again.
