    We came off the road underdressed with kids, but wanting a good meal. Management agreed to accommodate. Luckily, our children cooperated. Our server was excellent & very personable. We ate well and drank well! Our son said the calamari appetizer was the best he'd ever had! I think we ordered just over half the menu for dinner between the 5 of us. my husband and I were pleased with every morsel, except the sliders, which were good but a little overcooked.

    The server was knowledgable and friendly. The salads were fresh with quality produce. My son had the asparagus soup which he raved about. I had quite possible the best pork chops I have ever had. We will likely return when we visit my son again.

    This must be THE place in Fayetteville for special occasions. On the phone and again on arrival, we were asked what we were celebrating. As it happens, we just wanted dinner and it turned out we picked a good spot. The duck confit quesadilla was a delicious start, though we could have skipped the limp calamari--the reason I'm giving only four stars. The wild boar sausage ravioli was a knock-out, but the real winner was the fish of the day. Crisp-skinned walleye served on a bed of corn relish--yum. Can't rate the deserts--we didn't have room. Service was outstanding and the selection of wines by the glass gave us plenty to choose from. Well done, Theo's.

    Our son has been at UofA since Fall 2010. We didn't try Theo's until a couple of years ago. We love it. There are not many fine dining restaurants in Fayetteville. This is really nice, but can get very loud if you are hoping for a quiet evening. We have always found the food to be delicious. Wonderful wait staff. The bar is a great scene to have a drink. Would highly recommend for a nice dinner or special occassion!

    Our culinary experience was very positive, especially my pork chop, but my wife's calamari was overdone to the point that she could not eat it. The salmon was very good. The staff was excellent - they accommodated us in every way. The atmosphere reminded me of an east coast restaurant - banquet seating, excellent mood and a menu with real choices.

    Our waiter was Jordan. He served us well. My wife and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary, which our waiter had asked right out of the box if we were dining at Theo's for a special celebration. Our dessert came to the table with ' Happy Anniversary ' written on the plate in chocolate. Thank you Theo's for that extra touch.

    We hastily arranged a birthday dinner with our children and grandchildren and significant others - all at the last minute - and Theo's came through ! The evening centered on great food and wine and wonderful service. Even though we kept adding diners to the reservation (from 6 to 9 ) the restaurant adjusted and sat us at a table away from the noisiest area and we had lots of fun, conversation and special food. From the duck quesadillas to the chocolate "bomb" dinner was a hit with everyone.

    This restaurant had it all! We arrived a little early, but the wait staff was ready to greet us and had the perfect table for our group. Our purpose was a business dinner, and clearly Theo's is no stranger to hosting CEO's and making sure all goes perfectly smooth. The food was over the top and any foodie would appreciate the choice dishes and creative specials. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys food and great service.

Service very prompt, courteous & friendly. Our usual place to go before theatre plays, concerts, etc., at Walton Arts Center. Theo's is a very quality, enjoyable place!

    I enjoyed my meal very much. I had the pork tenderloin with chard and cornbread pudding. The tenderloin was wonderful, not quite falling apart, but very tasty. It held up the next day too (grin). I loved the cornbread pudding. The chard was too bitter for my taste. I loved the fact that I was able to get a mulled wine on a cold night. It's often hard to find good, hot beverages like that. I tried the creme brulee for dessert, it was good. I would have preferred that the "crust" not be quite so thick. It was a treat to have a real cafe au lait with the dessert.

    I've been going to Theo's for years now and it's about time I write a review. This is my hands down favorite fine dining Restaurant in NWA. I've never been disappointed by the food. Both the selection and quality are always great. As with any find any place the service here is also amazing. But not only is this a great place for fine dining, it is one of the best bar scenes in town. I highly recommend it for both.
