    Arthur's was a fantastic choice for a birthday surprise for my girlfriend! I proposed to her! She was totally surprised! The wait staff was involved in the process. The waiter was tremendous! The waiter rolled out a cart with a silver platter and dome. He cleared the table and placed it in the middle. When I gave him the sign, he stepped up and lifted the dome! The ring box was open and placed on a bed of roses. She said "yes" and couldn't stop saying "OMG, OMG!" It was perfect! Btw, the food was incredible and the service was impeccable! I highly recommend Arthur's for any dinner and especially for special occasions!

    Such a wonderful romantic elegant place to have dinner with your spouse or family. The food was delicious and we were dining to celebrate our anniversary and we had a special gift at the conclusion of our dinner, it was very nice gesture for the restaurant to honor us as guests. Service was superb as well.

    From the moment we walked in, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table. The waiter immediately traded the white napkin for a black one when he saw I had on black pants. The restaurant was decorated very tastefully and had a wonderful atmosphere. The food was to die for... the best steak and au gratin potatoes that I've ever eaten... and I have been around the world in high-dollar restaurants. Our waitstaff knew everything on the menu and made some great suggestions. Perfect evening.

    I had the occasion to eat at Arthur's on a week night. The service was great, the food was great, and they had a very impressive wine list. The prices are quite high, but the quality of the food warrants the prices. Service was superb. James was a wonderful server. It's a very nice restaurant for that special occasion, but the cost would probably prevent casual dining. I highly recommend it.

    My son and I went here for dinner on Fathers Day. It was open on Sunday for dinner, which was a plus. It is a nice Restaraunt, with a decent wine list. Some Entrees include sides, and there are lots of 'ala-carte options. I ordered the aged Filet Migon, which was properly cooked, but quite salty, more than a bit over-seasoned, noting that taste is a personal thing, so take this as my opinion only, otherwise the meal was very good. The server was prompt and polite and attentive.

    First time to go to Aurthur's - they don't advertise, so they are never on my mind. The setting is romantic - low light levels and very charming. The wait staff was excellent. The food was outstanding. We shared a duck appetizer, which was delicious. We each had a salad - very good. I had a strip steak and my husband had a fillet - both cooked to perfection. We also ordered two sides to share, which were so good and I wondered how they can make peas & carrots taste so good. There was plenty of food and we ended up taking some home. They whisk your 'take homes' off the table and box them up and hold them near the front. Nice touch. You never feel rushed to leave. We were there about 2 hours. I will definitely be a returning customer!

    This restaurant is by far the best I've been to in Arkansas, and probably ever! The service was untouched, and the food was incredible. A large selection of beef and seafood! The only service and food that even comes close was on my last cruise, and this is better by far!! This was my 15 year anniversary dinner and I could not have asked for a better experience! When avail, they have limo service, but was not avail this night, unfortunately! They did however have a free (but I tipped the attendant) valet service! Nothing like it in Arkansas!! Fabulous job and I will definitely be back!!!

    Arthur's was unbelievable! Great food and the best service we've ever experienced. They made my wife's birthday dinner one we will never forget. Definitely will be going back soon and would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience! Our waiter was James, who I'd recommend asking for on your visit due to his experience and personality. Expect to pay for what youre getting as this is not the run of the mill steakhouse, but its worth every penny as we wont be waiting for a special occasion for our next visit...we'll make our visit THE special occasion!!!

    To fully enjoy, you'll have to drop a dime, but the food selection is excellent and the quality very good. All staff members are very open and friendly, with several folks stopping to chat beyond the waiter/waitress. Good descriptions of entrees and suggestions also provided. You can also order seafood from the next-door restaurant (Oceans) to compliment your meal. I don't worry about price if going to restaurant like this, but to give you a feel, a dinner for four where each had an individual appetizer (plus one) and deserts, including a $80 bottle of wine, was $785. WAIT! Don't let that scare you, cause we also shared a good-sized cut of Japanese Kobe steak at $45/oz.

    Good steaks. Date got the Prime and I got Wagu. (Definitely can NOT cut the Wagu with a fork!) Save your money, the Prime cut was better, and cheaper. This is more about ambiance than food, I would say. Service was top notch and the staff does everything in it's power to make your time there enjoyable. Nice to have a steakhouse of this caliber in the area!

    Special occasion for two. Service was impeccable. As a steak lover these were the best we've had in Little Rock. Side dishes of asparagus, mushrooms and scalloped potatoes were delicious and serving sizes were plenty for two people. Decor is a little dated with dark hardwood paneling. Quiet enough to talk across the table without raising your voice. If price is a concern make it a special occasion but this is a must for a real dining experience. Never felt rushed to finish. In fact, our server repeatedly encouraged us to take as much time as needed to enjoy our food and time together.

    Arthurs Steakhouse is a bit overpriced but the food is excellent. The steak is by far the best I have enjoyed in Little Rock although not the best I've had overall. For a first time visit it was excellent and they definitely have a quality of food that is not common in Little Rock. A nice find dining experience, great for birthdays or any other occasion. The staff was also very friendly and accomodating!

    I was shocked at how wonderful a restaurant this was. My husband and I were going out for our 5th anniversary. We wanted something new to try, and a bit more upscale. Arthur's Prime Steakhouse was perfect. It was romantic, a great atmosphere, great pianist. The food was divine. The service was wonderful. The owner was also friendly. Overall I am floored with this place. The prices are higher than the average steakhouse. However, Arthur's Prime Steakhouse is anything but average. There was not one thing that wasn't perfect in our dining experience.

    Absolutely could have not been more pleased. Do not let the location or the exterior of the building fool you, once you step through the door it’s a delight. Service was attentive but not bothersome, wait staff courteous and knowledgeable. I was so blown away when I saw Alley’s Bone-in Filet first time I have found bone-in filet this side of the Chop house in Chicago. I definitely will be back to try the rest of a great menu.

    We had a great time! The steaks were great, the service was great. It is pricey so I personally wouldn't make it a family outing unless you have a deep pocketbook. We had meal+appetizer+desert and it was ~$200 after tip. They did make a personalized message on our desert for the occasion. Would definitely recommend going.

    Arthur's is exactly as advertised. Intimate, dark, masculine in feel. The service was excellent, attentive, not overbearing. The player piano is a nice touch. The martinis from the bar were just the way we ordered them. The Ahi Tuna Tartar appetizer was out-of-this-world good. The Caesar salad was up to the mark. The triple cheese au gratin was wonderful in taste and texture. I agree with my friend that the creamed corn was a bit too sweet. My tomahawk Waygu ribeye was a beautiful think to look at, and equally tasty. I was surprised there were some tough spots around the edges. It's the kind of this my Kroger or Sam's steaks sometimes have when I take them off my grill at home, but most often, they do not. The USDA prime filet was excellent

    This is a great American upscale steakhouse. Staff was friendly and experienced. Unfortunately they were a tad understaffed. I think we had at least 3 different people waiting on us, and not on purpose. Food was awesome though. I'm sure on a regular basis the entire experience would have been perfect.
