The fact is we didn’t dine there. It was a slow night and they closed before we got there. Look forward to trying on our next trip there.
Petit Bistro is a delicious surprise for a special dining experience. Upon first glance, it seems a bit out of sync with typical expectations for a fine dining venue; however, it becomes evident that its environment and serving style perfectly fit with the creative food offerings. We enjoyed our evening very much, and we would recommend Petit Bistro for special private celebrations as well as festive larger events.
Traditionally, the food has been delicious. Unfortunately, the evening that we went, everything was super salty and inedible.
Dependably delicious. Relaxing. Favorite dinner spot in NWA.
Quite old stone house in nice setting for dinner. Inside is nicely done. Covid guidelines good. Food was just average for the high price. I know my lamb chops came from Sam’s clubhouse. Because they tasted no different than what I buy and cook on the grill. No mint sauce on them. Veggies were good. My husband dish was good. Service was good. I would go back and try something else.
Cozy setting and well executed menu. Crime brûlée is exceptional—definitely get it when here.
Amazing as always
Great service, Great food, great atmosphere.
Love this place!
Menu choices were amazing. Prices a bit steep. Filet Mignon was cooked as ordered & delicious. Vegetable mix sautéed perfectly. House Rose good. Raspberry Napoleon dessert was so fabulously delectable I wish could have eaten more but alas, no room.
Excellent HOT food. Clean environment- appropriate precautions during COVID. Friendly service.
Every time we go to Petit Bistro, we have a wonderful experience. We love the ambiance and the food is always delicious. Dario makes us feel welcomed. Hands down our favorite restaurant in NWA.
Always exceptional, food & service. Never disappointed.
Loved the ambiance and ease of being able to talk. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. The food was fantastic. The chocolate martini was definitely worthy of any visit.
Petit Bistro is truly an amazing restaurant great for a special occasion or a night to just treat yourself! The food, service and ambiance is amazing. Easily one of my favorite spots in Bentonville! LOVED it!!!
Excellent food, always consistent and so delicious
Fantastic food, in an incredibly random location.
One of my favorite restaurants in Northwest Arkansas. Welcoming atmosphere with great food...overall a top notch dining experience!
Petit Bistro was perfect for our special evening. It took us back to our visit to Paris in 2018. Food was delicious, ambiance was quiet & romantic (we were only one of 2 couples dining) and the staff professional, attentive and curteous. We recommend Petit Bistro for a special night out of celebration or romance.
Great ambiance - very cozy and welcoming. Wonderful service and delicious food!
While this place was cute and our server Jason was very nice, it just wasn’t worth the price. No bread, no salad included, paper napkins, for $75 for two people with no appetizers and no alcohol with no leftovers is pretty atrocious. The food (chicken pesto pasta and steak poivre) was good, but it wasn’t the best.
My date and I were very impressed with this restaurant. The food was amazing (we had the salmon and swordfish) and the ambiance was very classy and still cozy — two descriptions hard to fit together. The servers were timely and friendly. In my top-three for northwest Arkansas. We will definitely be back.
Once again had we had a wonderful evening. Always enjoy Jason and Dari not to mention the food and ambiance.
Incredible small spot for a romantic dinner. The food and service is top notch. Great place for a quiet relaxing evening.
A real gem in North West Arkansas. Small, cozy atmosphere with fantastic service and great food. Highly recommend it. We will be back again!
Absolutely love this place!
Not a large staff so the experience was slow at times but we weren't in a rush. Fantastic meal from drink options to salads to entrees.
Excellent - ideal place to meet!
Old house converted to restaurant. Very cozy feeling. Nice relaxed atmosphere, good food and service.
Great service and wonderfully cozy place, great for conversation and lingering
Dinner on the cold and rainy night before Thanksgiving. We were early, and the only diners until nearly finished with dinner. It was our third or fourth visit over five years. The new (to us) manager was very friendly and helpful. Good variety on the menu, except three items were not available because his vendor was out of them (including lamb, my fav.) Wine by the glass featured a few middle of the road brands, I opted for a Wente chard and a Joel Gott cab, by the glass. We shared a good brie appetizer, with local honey, and ordered the special, a Chateaubriand/pasta dish. The meat was cubed and delicious, and the pasta was well-prepared. We did not have dessert. Servings were generous and well served.
The dinner was fine, without being over-the-top. It was a little less "French" than before, but completely satisfactory.
A must if you're in Bentonville. Quiant, little stone building - so much charm and character. Service was impeccable as was the food.
Great food, service & ambiance!
We had excellent service, and the food was amazing! We dined early and the host seated the three tables away from each other, so we had a quiet dinner and did not have to listen to anyone else's conversation. It was our first time there. We will return
The space and ambiance is great and we have generally been fans of Petit Bistro. Unfortunately, there has recently been a noticeable drop in food quality and service. On a recent visit... 1) We arrived on time and were told we were 30 min late to our reservation. They later acknowledged the mistake. Kitchen and staff seemed overwhelmed. 2) Martini was poorly made and had to be sent back. Our bill had a partial $4 vodka charge on it, we asked the waiter and it was removed. 3) They charged us $6 for bread and butter. Not a huge issue but it would have been nice to know about the extra charge. 4) Steak au Poivre was terrible. The meat quality was rough/rubbery and pepper sauce on was gelatinous. Perhaps Petit Bistro was having an off night, however we won't be going back for a while.
Ordered my steak medium rare and it was close to well done. Just a touch of pink in the very center I'm not one to send food back but I should have. I mentioned it to the waiter when we were about to leave just to let the chef know he didn't get close. He offered a free dessert but I was ready to go and passed. I can make some great steaks at home and its not that hard but I'm getting more of this type of bad steaks in NW AR. I need to start ordering other foods and if I feel like a steak I'll just make one at home. I would recommend this restaurant for everything else, service, ambience, wine selection etc but would warn them about the steaks.
Our first experience at the restaurant. Wasn’t terribly busy. The strip was advertised as the special with crab cakes on the side... crab crakes were good and the steak at medium rare was a bit tough. We had a tough time getting wine service while the couple next to us never had a chance to take a sip without a refill or a suggestion. Quite the dichotomy in comparing wait experiences. I can’t say that I won’t be back but there are places in town that give me much more attention. Not a bad place just not great
Pretty great. He was short staffed but still a great experience. Great recommendations on wine. Love the swordfish. Always an excellent choice
Everything was just perfect. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy. Both the service and our food were both amazing. 10/10. We will be back.
Will skip Great experience Food is very genuine Osso Bucco is excellent
Visited Petit Bistro on a cool, rainy night. A good thing. Food and drink selection was to my liking, not overwhelming with too many choices. Waiter intelligently addressed dietary issues. Food was well prepared and at a good temperature. Lighting was low, not dark, and made for a most relaxing, enjoyable evening.
