Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had dinner at Bordino's for our anniversary and we had the best time from start to finish! Our waiter Aaron was really great and knowledgable about the food and wine. He made our dinner there feel like we were at a good friend's house for the evening. The food was outstanding and I wanted to clean my plate after every course! The wines Aaron helped us choose with dinner and after dessert were ones that I will be looking for in stores for sure! We had such a great time and we will most definitely be back!"

  • "This was a very pleasant place to have dinner with the Love of you Life ! We both thought our food was cooked perfectly and wish we knew how they flavored and prepared the dinner, because it was delicious. The service was pleasant and good keeping us informed on the food and kept our drinks full. The cheese cake desert was very good to share for the two of us, who had gotten full on dinner. The cost was the only thing I wish could have been lower, but figured it was a great splurge for me & my wife and the food was really great, better than either of us remember at another place. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening. Mr. & Mrs. ........."

  • "This was my first visit to Bordino's and I was quite pleased. As the title of this review states, try the duck breast. It's grilled to medium and was moist and tasty. Most Italian themed restaurants have very extensive menus, but Bordino's doesn't. But I think most of the items one would expect to find in an Italian restaurant have some sort of representation here. Parking is tough on the street and in the city lot, but they do have valet parking. If you're looking for an upscale Italian restaurant in NW Arkansas try Bordino's. I know I'll be going back for the duck again."

  • "Atmosphere is easy for casual any night, or dress up special occasion. Service was phenomenal, with an incredibly knowledgable staff to help with wine selection, and menu details. My wife had the Duck breast, and it was one of the best I have ever tasted. I had the tuna special, and asked for a special cook. As a fish lover from the salt waters of Okinawa Japan, the Chef completely delivered, with perfect seasoning on a surprisingly fresh filet."

  • "I live out of town and usually eat at Bordino's when I am in Fayetteville for a performance at WAC, The food and service is always outstanding! I look forward to the meal as much as the performance that I will be attending!!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Although all their food is usually very good, their First Seating (5:00 - 6:30 I believe) is a three course dinner with perfect portions. In it you get a full salad or soup, a smaller portion entree, and a full dessert. It is $25 and includes a glass of wine. The last time we went was for a pre-theatre dinner and it was busy. We alerted them we needed to be out before 7:00 and they made sure we got out in time. Thanks Bordinos."

  • "In Fayetteville for part of our honeymoon and dined at Bordino's and had a wonderful steak with potatoes and asparagus, and salad... everything cooked to perfection and service impeccable. Quiet, able to enjoy and visit without interruptions. Will be back when next in town."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Not sure about "foodies" Wine List good - I do like Kendal Jackson Chardonnay by the glass and New Zealand sauvignon blanc. I like the bar and the view of Dickson tho too loud for conversation with another couple. We loved where we sat Saturday night. We like that better than the back room."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I recently went to Bordino's on a Saturday night to celebrate my anniversary with my boyfriend. It was a great experience! Our waitress was a dream and gave great suggestions on our cocktails and entrees. To help us celebrate, she even offered a free sorbet! Overall, a great experience with tasty food! It's a great date night place before hitting Dickson."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food, wine, service and ambience are all excellent. Bordino's is a busy place with lots of customers but it is quiet. relaxing and easy to carry on a conversation. I would highly recommend Bordino's to all my friends!"

  • "Bordino's has earned and retains its reputation with me as a consistently excellent restaurant."

  • "Arrived about 10 minutes before my reservation time (party of two) and the restaurant was extremely crowded as it was Mom's Weekend for many of the sororities. Had no trouble getting seated, but it took about 10 minutes for our server to check on us and get a drink order/bring waters. Food was fabulous and came out very quickly. Servers were very attentive, but our particular waiter was a little pretentious. After mispronouncing a menu item the waiter acted inappropriately. I would definitely recommend Bordinos for a nice dinner or special occasion."

  • "Bordinos was awesome, the waiter was great, I think his name was Jeremy or something. Everything was really classy, and I would swear to a jury that the Coca Cola they serve is better than any Coca Cola I've ever had. Their lasagna portions were huge, and it was the best Italian dish I've ever had. They have valet parking as well which is great, and it only costs three dollars."

    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "All aspects of or Bordinos were thorough and efficient. On the day of our reservation a representative called to confirm and noted that we planned to attend a 7:30 performance at TheaterSquared. We were seated in the small room around the corner from the desk which is quieter than the main room. Service was excellent and the food was superior."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The food was outstanding. The side room was noisy and no ambience at all. Our service was very good and waitress was very congenial."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I ordered the Duck Breast and it was not cooked--raw. Had to send back for more cooking. When watiress brought back I had to ask for more sauce. I have dined at Bordinos on several ocassions and have never had a bad experience with the food. I'll return in the future but will not be ordering Duck."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The food was good, but my entree portion was anemic. The gnocchi barely covered the bottom of the bowl and there was no sign of the cured ham the menu listed as incorporated in this dish. If my wife didn't share part of her steak with me I would have literally left the restaurant hungry. Especially given this portion problem, everything is overpriced. We each had two drinks, an entree, and I had soup while my wife had salad. Doesn't seem like $130 worth."

  • "Great food, ambiance, outstanding service and romantic. My new favorite...One of the best restaurants I have been to in arkansas"

  • "Bordinos is just a two block walk from the Walton Center, making it a great place to dine before a show. The food was excellent, and they had two smartly priced three course dinner specials. The staff was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. We'll be back."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Bordinos was wonderful, as always. I know I will get great food and service every time I go. I've never been disappointed!"

  • "When our waitress was unable to recommend a choice. The young man who helped us select a second bottle of wine (they were out of the first one we drank) knew the wines offered very well. We appreciated his expertise and enjoyed his suggestion. Thanks."

  • "Bordino's is consistently good! I would love to see it a little nicer in the "Ambiance" area perhaps table cloths and such but the food is good and as is the service. I've never been disappointed and I'm really not sure they're out to impress at least it doesn't seem like it. Of course in our area there isn't to much competition at this level so perhaps they don't need to! The only negative is the $1 charge for balsamic vinegar with your bread. I've lived in Boston, San Francisco and Chicago and NEVER been charged extra. To me that dollar doesn't seem as though it's even incremental revenue and brings with it posts like mine. Just don't see how it makes sense for them or the customer."

    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "This was our first time to go to Bordino's (our very fave restaurant in the area is James at the Mill). It was quiet and dimly lit. The hostess was a bit distant--maybe oblivious. We had a reservation and let her know our name, but then she chose to take a phone call over taking us to our table. Our waiter was extremely nice. He made up for the hostess. Salad had too much dressing for me. I had the portobello mushroom lasagna and liked it a lot. My SO had the pasta special of the night, which had wild boar sausage and chopped veggies over pasta. It was good but not as good as mine. Dessert was our favorite thing about the food: we had the white choc creme brulee. SO said he could have eaten two of them. Overall we would definitely return."

  • "Brunch is always excellent as well as the service. Food is consistent. I highly recommend Bordinos."
    Dined on 12/22/2013
  • "Our waiter was a little intrusive. I know that pasta is better firm and not mushy, but rigatoni was almost crunchy. The meatballs were flavorful and tender. Overall, not the best date night I have been on with my husband."
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "My husband and I have been going to Bordino's for years. The menu and service are always great, and the wine list is very nice. The servers and bar staff are very attentive to details (somehow they always manage to remember my favorite wine, even if I don't, ha!). We probably make it out to Bordino's at least once a month. It's also the perfect setting for a nice business dinner."
