  • "The food here is amazing. My wife and I went for dinner and were very surprised ny the service. The servers were very attentive and answered all our questions with great knowledge of the food and wine pairings. I had a bone in pork dish and my wife had a balsamic chicken dish. Both were amazing with fresh made from scratch ingredients. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys a great meal with exceptional service."

  • "This was a great find for my wife and I and will become one of those that we enjoy in the future. Would be a great place for a group of friends to enjoy wine and dinner or just a glass of wine and talk."

  • "Very good food that is fast and well prepared. Outside seating is great on cooler days with a very nice atmosphere. Very good Filet Mignon with terrific spinach garnish. Tables are cozy but not too close..allow interaction between diners if wanted, Do not pass up dessert!"

  • "I was a little disappointed in my latest visit to Petit Bistro. Previously I was told it was dog friendly & I'd eaten on the patio with my dog before, had enjoyed an excellent meal, fantastic service, and everyone was quite nice to my dog. This time when we were traveling thru in warm conditions w/ 2 dogs it seemed a perfect place to celebrate our wedding anniversary spur of the moment. But they were not happy that we'd brought the dogs so I put them in the car as soon as the sun fell below the trees to try not to stress restaurant out. The service was very slow; there may have been one server for the entire patio area. The food was disappointing; the steak au poivre was overcooked, tough (NY strip they said), & had very little sauce. "

  • "Love their small plates...not cheap at all but top quality. Plenty of food unless you're a famished diner. Reserved table available, but they had to push 2 together to accommodate our party of 4, like they were surprised we came. Seemed the proprietor was covering for staff that didn't show up. It was good thing we were with good friends to visit with extensively while waiting to have orders taken or served. Will go back despite this. "

  • "Very nice ambiance & romantic setting creative nice menu however food quality was disappointing. Had 2 pcs Braised pork - 1 dry over cooked other moist. Plums overpowered flavors. Swordfish dry overcooked but sauce good. More sauce on both entre would have helped. Side dishes mixed -roasted potatoes overcooked veggies ok. Chocolate bread pudding was very good and highlight of meal but surprised they had to check if any left - given last serving available at 7:30 on a Sat night when its on the menu not a "special". In summary Prices comparable to other high end in Bentonville / Rogers but quality of food is not. Its back "into town for us."

  • "Lots was not available on the menu because of the time of year we visited (near Christmas) and the food was served on cold plates so soon got cold itself - other than that we had a nice time - just not amazing for the money!"

  • "Mediocre experience. Pears in one salad seemed old; other salad lacked some ingredients. Vegetables served w/ entrees cooked to mush. On the positive side, the petit pork shanks were very good, however the sweet potato/shredded carrot mixture was cold. Other entrée, grilled coho salmon was dry, & cous cous served with it was bland."

  • "Petit Bistro is a gem. Bentonville is full of franchise-type restaurants but Petit Bistro is a definite gem amongst some very ho-hum franchises. The setting is beautiful. Perfect for date night."

  • "What a great find in Bentonville! Excellent food & service. We did online reservation for Sat night 8PM. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Wine list isn't extensive but has excellent choices. Grilled Brie appetizer was yummy, served with grilled ciabatta, drizzled with honey & candied walnuts. For dinner, we had Osso Bucco (24oz!) and pork shanks in plum sauce. The meat fell off the bone, very flavorful. Dessert was the star of the show - special pumpkin cheesecake with ginger snap crust, out of this world! We raved about it so much, they finally brought out the lady who had made it. This is a good spot for special occasion. Dinner was pricey but worth it. Would love to come back and sit outside on the patio in good weather."

  • "My husband and I love this place and brought our out of town guests. We all love a great food and wine, relaxed yet attentive service with a nice environment. I crave their tuna tower with perfectly cooked tuna sliced thin and the creamy wasabi; always consistent and always delicious. Everyone else had the mussels and loved them; as usual they did not disappoint and even the guys were raving about the hearty helping on this dish. The blackened scallops on the appetizer menu comes with couscous and asparagus and makes a nice little meal; always melt in your mouth. For dessert, to die for creme brulee. I am a creme brulee fan and this was one of the best ever!"
