  • "Food was some of the best I have ever had in Little Rock. The menu is very creative and they delivered on each course. The service was terrific and our server, Adam, made our experience one we will repeat again soon."

  • "To celebrate our 35th anniversary we wanted to try something different-We found a gem and a new favorite in Little Rock! We had an early dinner date, so when we arrived there were not too many patrons. As the night went on others came, but still the noise level was nice for conversation. We choose a rather traditional meal although there are some unusual things on the menu. Quail Lollipops (wow!), split the Caesar salad (plenty), and each had the Filet for the main dish, a side of out-of -this-world brussels sprout, and OMGoodness-The "S'More" for dessert. Everything we put in our mouths was over-the-top! Alex took great care of us for the night-Excellent service and very knowledgable-Can't say enough good things-Just GO!"

  • "Loved the service and selection. Best Brussels sprouts in my life. Tried the tongue and cheek. Sounds gross; tastes delicious. We will be back!!"

  • "The food was good but not particularly spectacular. I think it is interesting that ones dining experience can actually be molded by your waiter. Our waiter was certainly better than the waiter who operates the window at McDonald's but not a lot better when you adjust for cost. I have eaten at some of the better and costlier restaurants in the United States and I can honestly say it's the first time the waiter was somewhat condescending. Sorry I don't speak French. Sorry I wasn't familiar with the menu it was my first time there. While you don't blame the coach for Player behavior. It is the coach who is ultimately responsible and gets fired. Pay attention coaches or you may not have a team to coach. "

  • "Outstanding all around; prices reasonable given the food quality. Martini was a bit watered down because it was shaken with crushed ice, not cubes, but the waiter (Wayne) was told and passed on the information to the bartender. I will go back....soon."

  • "excellent service. the food options ranged from good to amazing. the best part of our meal was the bone marrow appetizer, which was savory and melted in your mouth. the prime filet was a decent piece of meat that was solidly, if unspectacularly, cooked to order. the sea bass was very good. the fish was nicely charred on the outside, moist on the inside, and did not taste the least bit 'fishy.'"

  • "Absolutely fabulous! Service, food, ambiance are just wonderful! The chef is brilliant , as are his dishes! Cannot say enough good about this place, it was amazing!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The local paper's mini-review of the bone marrow appetizer left me drooling, so I figured we were in for a treat, but I didn't expect I'd be enjoying one of the best meals ever. The kitchen, bar, and our server make an admirable team. Our starter cocktails were brilliantly mixed. The marrow, served on a halved lengthwise beef bone and topped with a sweet onion jam, was rich and decadent. The kale Caesar salad was a tangy, salty, flavorful celebration of the kale with perfect croutons to crunch. The Tongue & Cheek was a beef lover's dream, tender and delicious. The duck is the best I've ever eaten, served with the best Brussels sprouts I've ever eaten. The pecan tort was amazing. I wish I had more characters to do justice to Table 28."

  • "Best menu selection in Little Rock by far. Chef creations very creative and unusual yet enticing. Service was exceptional, very professional and knowledgeable."

  • "Steaks were not cooked to order(too rare) ;fish tasted fishy. Too much salad dressing on salad. Service was mediocre and they were not busy"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The menu was eclectic. The choice of starters was extremely creative and main entree items were solid. You can't go wrong with the brussel sprout side -- get it. My wife had the sea bass and said it was delicious. My son had the tongue&cheek and I had the rabbit. I felt the rabbit was too dry, and my son realized he was too adventurous with his selection -- we swapped plates and were both happy. The signature cocktails were great -- have one. I will come back to step through the menu list one by one. Outstanding service."

    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "What a truly outstanding restaurant! The Organic Cucumber martini was a perfect beginning to a perfect meal. The entrees my husband and I enjoyed (sea bass and prime filet) were faultless. The Brussels sprouts with bacon and pecans would be worth a trip back in and of themselves. Our server provided superb service. All in all, a perfect dining experience."

  • "Other venues seem to get the publicity, but Table 28 has the most inventive menu in town. If the food, not the view, matters, try this place!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We shared the Marrow, chicken liver pate and quail lollipops. Marrow and pate were delicious. Quail was good but not really identifiable as such. The tendril salad was delicious. Two hungries tried the Tomahawk ribeye ($75) and were disappointed. Some good wines."

  • "This is an interesting place. My date and I started off with the squid, which was served differently than we were expecting. It is fried and served in long strips in a basket (at first we thought we had been served chicken strips), rather than in small pieces. We both thought it was good but certainly different. My date then chose the Mahi for her entree while I tried the braised Tongue and Cheek. My date found the Mahi had too much of a "fishy" taste and gave most of her portion to me. I had never had tongue or cheek before, but I found it fork-tender and quite delicious. My date finished her meal with the sticky toffee, which we guessed was a bread pudding with a toffee-flavored caramel sauce, and we both enjoyed the richness."

  • "This is a great place for something fresh and different. The menu is seasonal and the soups are particularly tasty. We have done tapas and cocktails for GNO here and 3 special occasion dinners. Food and service are both excellent. Don't miss the sticky toffee pudding!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Table 28 is the best restaurant in Little Rock. The food is fresh and imaginative. Who, except Scott, would think to pair foie gras with biscuit and gravy? It is astoundingly good! This is our favorite restaurant. I highly recommend it."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "We visited for the first time on 2-15. Server was wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable. The food however was not that great and over-priced compared to other restaurants in the area. Entries don't include any sides so for $28 you get only a meat, no bread on the table, no vegetables. My fish was way overcooked, the side of brussel sprouts is served crispy- very brown, no green color left. Taking all the flavor away. With all the wonderful restaurants in town, this one was disappointing."

  • "Fantastic restaurant. Interesting menu that will make you want to try several dishes. The service was professional and quick. The food was some of the best I have had in a while. Great atmosphere."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is my kind of place. I like romantic, extra special food that I would never prepare at home, but not so strange that people with ordinary tastes would not like. The rabbit is delicious. I wish i could tell other diners what I have enjoyed. The cucumber martini is fabulous. Not sure why I ordered it the first time but so glad I did. I am telling friends about this restaurant as it is fabulous and the quality and service is extraordinary. See you for our anniversary!"

  • "Very impressed with Table 28. Checks all the boxes for a truly great dining experience...Fresh, local ingredients and a chef who knows what to do with them; a great staff with knowledge of the restaurant and the menu/wine; a great bar/high end drink selection and a bartender who knows how to mix high end drinks (nothing worse than ordering a Manhattan at an "upscale" restaurant and they have no rye whiskey and it comes back to the table on the rocks in an iced tea glass). I highly recommend! We will definitely be regular patrons."

  • "We went to Table 28 on a whim, and were happy we did. It was fantastic and great to know that minutes from where we live we had a place with such great food. It was a unique menu and unlike many fancy restaurants there were several entree`s I wanted to try. End up going with the Sea bass and it was remarkable and the portion wasn't too small. The grits were great as was the chicken and waffle appetizer. Everything we had was really well done and we will go back as often as we can."

  • "We had not visited Little Rock for a year and came to this restaurant expecting to find Vesuvio. We took a look at the menu and decided to come back the following night. Great decision. The food is excellent, unusual and features local sourcing for all their ingredients. We started with bone marrow and squid, both a great appetizer. We followed with rabbit and venison osso bucco and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and timely, but you could tell the restaurant recently opened because it wasn't well orchestrated. That should come in time. The lighting had a lot of glare with no lamp shades so it bothered my father-in-laws eyes...and mine. I definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "This small, tastefully decorated restaurant is truly a gem! Food is delicious; menu offers a wide variety of choices to tease and please everyone-----Kale Caesar salad, Pecan Brussels sprouts, one of the best pork dishes we've ever had---choices range from duck to a salmon to steak. Specialty drinks from the bar were truly special and service was top notch! While this is a nice place for a special evening, we won't wait for a special occasion but will return soon and often."

  • "On Dec 7 the roads in LR were icy but we found Table 28 to be serving regardless. As always, the service was great. This was our third visit. We have enjoyed different items each time. Impressively, everything we try is fantastic. So happy to have another excellent restaurant in LR."

  • "Every visit to Table 28 has been wonderful. The service is first rate and the food is always a pleasant surprise. I'm slowly working my way through the menu and trying some of the more exotic choices. Sometimes a jazz trio will play and although they don't inhbit table conversation, it is a very small space to have live music."

  • "We have found our new favorite dining spot in Little Rock for special dinners. Our food and service were fantastic. Atmosphere was nice and quiet. Appetizers, entrees and desserts were all fantastic the night we dined and we will definitely go back."

  • "A great new restaurant with an eclectic menu. We started with the Quail Lollipops served with a Tabasco butter. Outstanding. Mrs. GR had the Sea Bass that came lightly seasoned and loved it. She paired it with a cauliflower side which was tasty. I had the ribeye. Priced at $75, I was a little leery I wouldn't get my money's worth but, (think Flintstone's), I ate on the leftovers for two days. Very tender and tasty. I had grits as a side. They were good, but I've had better. The sides are quite large and can easily be shared, especially if you have an appetizer. The rest of the entrees were priced between $20 - 40, so it is not necessarily an expensive meal. Service was a bit slow and inattentive but they were slammed. Perhaps overbooked."

  • "Waiter Wayne great. Food very good. However, our group of 4 walked in behind another group of 4. There was one 4 top left but the folks in front of us had no reservation and didn't want to eat in the atrium. So, the maitre d seated them at the 4 top. He finally asked us who we were and we told him of our 2 week old reservation. He offered atrium and when we refused put us at a 6 top( not good for 4). 10 minutes later the group of six arrived for their table but we were there. They waited and waited and someone finally left a 4 top and we offered to move. Needless to say the maitre d should have simply asked us if we had a rsv. before he seated those who didn't. Took too long to get served on a busy night."

  • "This space once occupied by Vesuvio is now the home of Table 28. This is easily the very best restaurant we have eaten in Arkansas. Wonderful food great service by Jim. They started us with black eyed pea hummus finally black eyed peas my wife will eat. We started with the mushrooms and cheese bread it was so rich with a depth of flavor that needs to be tried to believe. Ladies try the s'more martini! My wife had the smoked pork with whiskey apples and she loved every bite. I had the surf n turf it was perfectly braised and wonderful the diver scallops were perfectly seared and cooked. Our sides we chose were the grits and Brussels sprouts wonderful accompaniments to out meal. To finish our night we had the toffee pudding it was fantastic"
