We knew where this experience was
headed when we received a cold greeting from the very unhappy hostess as we walked in. However, we had reservations (not that we needed them at 7:30 on a Saturday night) and a special occasion to celebrate, so we continued on (huge mistake). The server was slow to take our orders, never removed any dishes leaving us with a cluttered mess of a table, brought out 2 incorrect meals, and never refilled any beverages until prompted when he finally returned. The other two entrées arrived room temperature and were not anything memorable. In summary, the food was lackluster, the service was pathetic, and the overall experience was miserable. We are easy to please diners, but this was just awful."

The food was very good, but there
were a few missed opportunities. I had the rack of lamb and the wild rice pilaf was unseasoned and the asparagus was hard. If these two items were a little better it would have been a great meal."

I made reservations a week in
advance to go here and it was so worth it, you could feel the love in the air and the live jazz was the awesome!!! The wait staff was the the best service at any restaurant I've ever been to, the chef definitely knew what she was doing every dish had an elegant feel and a unique flavori have never liked crab cakesand the ones here were juicy melt in your mouth crab with a nice crunchy batter around it"

The food was great. My quesadilla
came out cool (probably because my husband's food took longer to cook). I asked if they would pop it in the microwave for a few seconds, and they cooked me a whole new one instead. Friendly staff. Great place."

The service is good. The food was
ok. Not really that hot. Music was alittle too loud for as close as we was sitting. Could of been alittle more softer. Prices are alittle too much for cold food that was suppose to be hot."

Fort Smith is very lucky to have
an upscale restaurant like MovieLounge in our fair city. The food is consistently yummy and the atmosphere offers a very upscale dining experience at a moderate price. The burger uses premium beef and I stopped by a fried egg - both are cooked to order. I recommend the sweet potato fries as accompaniment. Ordering a tall draft beer makes this a divine experience."

The Movie Lounge is a real gem.
They have excellent food, excellent service and bring in great bands. We really enjoyed our evening out. Ben Franks and the Bible Belt Boys need to come back to Fort Smith again soon."

The whole dining experience was
fantastic. The live entertainment was good. The food was excellent and the ambience was perfect. It was perfect for our birthday celebration. Totally enjoyed it. It was quiet and overall just a perfect place."

My fiancé wanted to take me to a
special restaurant to celebrate my Halloween 64th birthday. He found the perfect place for me when he went on line and made reservations for us at Movielounge Restaurant. This restaurant turned out to be a perfect Halloween "treat" for both of us. I ordered the "Surf and Turf". The steak was excellent, cooked to my specifications perfectly. The "turf" portion of the meal was an excellent lobster mashed potato. I thought I died and went to heaven when I tasted these two together."

This was our first time at movie
lounge. The restaurant's atmosphere is unlike anything in fort smith. Our waiter was excellent. Great food and drinks we enjoyed our date night!!"

I've always loved Movie Lounge,
but my last trip was the best yet. The use of locally grown vegetables and some meats on the new menu was a wonderful touch. Movie Lounge and head chef Blythe Beck have certainly brought their A game!"

We liked the room, and we liked
the service (hard to come by in our town on most days), but food was just average. We are willing to pay more for good service, and we are willing to pay more for ambiance, and for the cost of our dinner, we hoped for a little better meal. Nothing was bad about either of our meals, but nothing really stood out either. And we were not really disappointed, but for the cost, it did not really meet our expectations. Several reasons to go back, (we are glad there is a place like this in our town, and I hope it is successful), and we will. And we are hopeful that the kitchen staff will surprise us with a great meal."

We had dinner at the Movie Lounge
when it first opened and it was excellent, service was great, food was unique and very good. This is our second trip and the food has taken a turn to the worse. Boring, did not like the selection of entres. Service was still good although not like our first experience."

Loved walking into this beautiful
restaurant. It felt like the rest of the day's events had stopped as my date and I began our experience. We were greeted by a warm professional staff which was only the beginning, our waiter was well educated and able to inform us of the chef's specials with ease. The presentation of our plates were exquisite and tasted divine. While we shared our experience it was wrapped in a perfect bow with live music.."

Great food service & ambience. We
made online reservation & requested seafood. 4 different dishes were offered in addition to menu option. Staff was great, showed us the around. Loved it, highly recommended"

Several months ago I and my guests
dined at your establishment and were extremely pleased with your service, facilities,, drinks, and your menu selections. This time the only thing failing would be your menu selections, your choices have changed and the food was not anywhere up to past experience and dining pleasure. Hope you bring back your pervious menu and quality... Will be back, just hope the food quality and menu selections change. Thank You for your attention. Sincerely, Michael Gray"

We had the best time at the
Movielounge! We ate at the restaurant first, then went to a movie for drinks and snacks. It was such a special experience and we will definitely return! The atmosphere is awesome and to be able to eat and drink while watching a movie in the comfortable chairs was so fun."

My husband and I loved our
MovieLounge experience. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. We enjoyed the live music and setting provided by the staff. We will definitely be returning for future nights out!"

Movielounge is definitely an
amazing restaurant full of great people at your service. The food is absolutely fantastic and everything looks very nice. Staff is great. I spoiled my water and didn't even have to call for anyone. A waiter was there before I even knew it haha. Amazing restaurant (:"

Entertainment and service was
great! Food quality needs major improvement. Roasted chicken was not completely cooked nor were French fries. Bread pudding was crispy on the bottom. Would go here for burgers, drinks, and entertainment only."
Dined on 5/24/2013
Service was attentive but not
intrusive. Reasonably priced good wines available. Rib eye cooked as ordered. Sides a little disappointing. Good experience!"

I'm from Portland, OR and
something of a foodie. I could not believe I was in Ft. Smith! The quality, presentation, and ambiance are on par with a much larger city. The restaurant has a modern decor, lively bar, and small live music stage. There is also a movie theater and part of the menu is served there as well (we did not try this feature). There was a very good 2 piece band - but a bit loud. It would have been better to unplug and go acoustic."
Dined on 5/19/2013
I love movie lounge for everything
except the food. The chicken was underdone on my previous visit and while the tacos tasted good this time the price is too high for what you get. Add some salsa and more cheese please at least."
Dined on 5/11/2013
Service was excellent, our
waitress did a good job taking care of us. Fish was overcooked and had to be sent back. My steak was perfect and the mac and cheese that accompanied it was delicious."

We went for Mother's Day brunch
and the buffet was out of this world. The atmosphere was something that would be found in a major city. The food was a little pricey, but the great service, food and atmosphere make it worth it."

Reservation at 7:00 for two, just
in time to hear the Don Bailey Jazz Trio, which that night was a foursome. Don's daughter has the perfect voice, the whole group awesome. Anticipated changes in the menu made hard for me to choose between rack of lamb & fillet mignon. Husband chose the tuna steak: Everything delicious! Addie (sp?) was perfection in service, cocktail selections inventive & tasty. (But!?-- was the oh-so-tender fillet seasoned with some MSG in the tenderizer or whatever?--'cause I had a middling migraine next day, very rare occurrence unless I've consumed MSG.) Definitely want to see Movie Lounge succeed, our community NEEDS a place like this."

My husband and I spent our wedding
anniversary in a cozy corner booth. Menu cocktails were great! Service was friendly and food was good. I was pleased with the portion sizes (bigger than I expected for upscale restaurant.) Very enjoyable - plan to return soon."

Our server was actually one of my
friends from high school. Even on a friend to friend basis she was trained VERY well and was extremely helpful and kind. I loved the interior of the building. It was very fancy & elegant with all the lights and the settings on the table. The bar is beautiful. Our food was delicious and we saw a movie in the theater afterwards, which was an absolute thrill. I LOVE the seating in the theater and that you can receive service in there as well. This is by far one I the nicest places in fort smith and I wish we had more like this! I can't wait to go here again! Thanks Movie Lounge!"

The food was excellent and the
presentation was truly awesome! The ambience is perfect for romantic dinner, special occasion or a group. The Sleepless in Seattle Martini was unique. I highly recommend saving room for dessert.. the Candy Apple Creme Brulee is delicious!"
Dined on 4/10/2013
Food has only been average at best
on our last 2 visits. My wife said her steak was dry and my roasted chicken seemed like it was way over cooked. Will probably not return until we hear reports that food quality has improved."

We went for the 1st Celebrity
Chef, and they had not quite worked all the bugs out. Ran out of food, could not hear the Chefs on stage, and the web site did not say how much it was when I made the reservation. This will probably be all worked out my the next time."
Dined on 4/4/2013
Very enjoyable, though very
pricey. I'll certainly return, though only for special occasions."
Dined on 3/29/2013
The food was pretty good though it
was a little overpriced, in my opinion. The service was slow and we rarely saw our server. Twice I was told they would refill my drink, but they would forget to. We were also seated in the overflow area even though the main dining area was empty with no reserve signs. The service staff didn't communicate with each other so it was a little awkward to explain to the staff when ordering dessert that I had already been there awhile and had already finished my entree so I did not need to see the entree menu again."

Very much enjoyed our visit!!
Great food and friendly staff!! HIGHLY recommended. Can't wait to go back to see a movie!"

Movie Lounge is always a great
experience. We love, love, love the wait staff. I have never seen people who work so hard to make our experience positive. Jeff also makes all of our beverage wishes come true. Truly our favorite place to eat in Ft Smith!"

The food was wonderful but the
service is better than any other place we have been and we eat out A LOT! It is always a great experience at Movie Lounge."

Love love love the new menu! Chris
was our waiter and he was VERY good! Jake always makes our experience a great one and even though Hailey, Addi and Amanda were not assigned to our table, they still come by to make us feel welcome!"
