Charming little restaurant providing delicious meals, good wine list and excellent service.
Good was very tasty with the exception of the chocolate bread pudding. Portions were a little light. Service was okay. Glad we went, probably won’t be back.
This is my husband’s and my favorite restaurant in Northwest Arkansas. Wonderful menu, food, and service.
This is a family run little gem. No pretense and great food. Beautiful backyard beyond patio.
Well-prepared food with attentive service in an intimate setting of an old house. Wonderful for a night out or visit from out of town. Enjoy.
Good service and the food was great!
Great ambiance, love that! Food and drinks won't disappoint. A bit pricey but ok for a special occasion.
Petit Bistro is an elegant small restaurant. The food is prepared well and the waitstaff is personable. We enjoyed our whole dining experience. It is a special place.
Petite Bistro is our favorite restaurant in NWA. The food is great but the personal service and atmosphere is what keeps us coming back! A hidden gem that I recommend folks seek out.
First time dining here, Salmon was amazing and the wife had the Pesto Chicken which was fantastic. Highly recommended!
It was some of the best food we have ever had. We will go again if we are back in the area. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great date night with my wife. First time to dine at this restaurant but definitely on our favorite list now.
I have been wanting to go to Petit Bistro for years, but felt it was just too expensive. But my son was treating me to a birthday dinner so I was excited. Jason was awesome and did a good job considering he was the sole front of the house. I had the Spinach Pear salad that was pretty good and my son had the Maison salad, but about a third of the arugula was yellow and should never had been put on the plate. The Carpaccio was good and a fair portion, but the Blackened Scallops were 3 tiny scallops the diameter of a quarter ($18!) and two very small crab cakes for $17. Our bill was almost $90 and we did not even order liquor. The place had a quaint feel but sorely needs refreshed and updated. Especially the outdoor seating area that we passed on. Perhaps it is because restaurants have been hard hit during Covid, but not feeling like we got ripped off is no way to try to win back customers. Disappointed and won't be back.
Not a bistro. A second rate bar and diner. Dirty and poorly maintained. Wait staff dresses poorly
Grossly overpriced. Would not recommend.
Four different meals were ordered at our table. Drinks and cocktails were promptly delivered, cold and exactly as ordered. We started with crabcakes Appetizers. The overall size was on the small size but this coming from someone with 40 years eating crabcakes. Garnished with a sauce that I honestly couldn’t get enough of, the tender crab melted into the flavor of the sauce leaving your mouth screaming for that next bite of flavor. My main course was the salmon which was outstanding. Light, flaky, moist, and perfectly prepared! I finished with the creme brulee. I am a brûlée snob, sampling brûlée from Paris to Australia and everywhere it’s on the menu, this was a gem! Thin layer of crust over creme that was properly chilled. The combination in the mouth explodes the senses! Maybe I was overly hungry but I will be headed back for another test because I loved every single bite!
Petit Bistro was an overall wonderful experience. The food was delicious and the ambience was excellent. The dining area is so quaint and cozy; the noise level was very low. The service was outstanding. I highly recommend Petit Bistro for your next special occasion or a delicious meal.
We had a lovely evening! The food, wine and service were all excellent! Petite Bistro is a must every time we visit Bentonville!
Fantastic restaurant! Super quick and loved our meals. They even gave us a free creme brulee because they accidentally made an extra. 10/10 recommend.
Not a fancy place, but great food and excellent service!
Atmosphere was amazing and food was amazing. I was a bit disappointed they ran out of cheesecake before I could order my piece, but there's always next time.
Short ribs Bourguignon was good but unfortunately needed more authentic ingredients/flavor. The Châteaubriand shiitake pasta was good but again needed a bit more flavor. Both dishes could have been hotter. The wine list was very good and our waiter’s recommendation of “Earthquake” cab was excellent. Our spinach salad was very good but the dressing should have been tossed first since it was impossible to do so on the flat plate. Desserts of chocolate bread pudding and the crème brûlée were very good.
This is a dining gem. The setting, food, wine list and service are all outstanding.
What a delightful evening we had at Petite Bistro. I hadn't had lamb in quite some time so I ordered the lamb chops. They were perfectly prepared to medium rare and served with beautiful grilled vegetables and couscous. My partner had the blackened sword fish and was thrilled with it's taste and presentation. He had creme brulee and was really happy with it's smooth texture and delightful crunchy top. I had the napoleon, prepared in a way I was unaccustomed, but a delicious twist.
Great date night spot! The atmosphere was quaint and cozy, and the food was delicious. We will definitely be going back!
Dinner was delightful--great service, surprising wine list, full bar, delicious food. Ambiance--warm, welcoming, quiet, softly lit.
Always a pleasure to dine at Petit Bistro.
Family and friends insist upon dinner at Petit Bistro when they visit NWA.
Excellent house wines. The food is perfection.
Great food, service, and ambiance! We recommend and we will be back.
Great experience. Would love to see organic wines on the menu or the ability to bring our own. Also would appreciate gluten free pasta options. Menu was a bit limited as several dishes were unavailable after a busy weekend (we went on a Monday).
The food was delicious!
My now husband had our first date here and just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary, 3 years together. The Bistro will always be special to us!
Wasn't bad food, but not the greatest considering the price. We thought the wine list was overpriced, but that didn't stop us from trying a new Italian red. It was good. Desert was also good. They did comp desert because my wife's entre was not hot. Would probably go back, but it won't be a regular spot for us to dine. As far as COVID precautions go, I thought they were as safe as they could have been. That was appreciated.
We had been wanting to try this place for a long time, and finally got there last night. The ambiance was wonderful, the food and wine were delicious, and the service was top notch. We will definitely be back!
Cute little restaurant! The food was amazing and the service was outstanding as well! Highly recommend!
Both of our meals were over cooked. My wife had the chicken and it was dry and very over cooked. I had the swordfish and it was the same. The Israeli couscous was very good as were the vegetables. We had the crab cakes as an appetizer and they were good but nothing special.
For the price and since we were the only ones at our time slot that the food could be cooked to perfection. Didn’t seem like the bar/waiter was glad we were there and that much care went into our meal.
Amazing food and great service. My filet was perfect. The only issue was it was a bit noisy for a rom
Excellent food. The Petit Plates were actually our favorite. Surprisingly unique and delicious crab cake remoulade with grilled asparagus that was the best I've ever had. And the spinach pear salad is my new favorite salad. We had the steak au poivre - very large portion, glad we shared. Perfectly cooked with excellent vegetables. Overall very pleased with the food and service.
Best restaurant I have eaten at in years. Food was amazing and service was just as good. Already scheduling our next date night there.
Great experience, as always!
Wonderful restaurant, wonderful ambiance! The staff was attentive and helpful. Great personality! We will definitely be back!
The entire dinner experience was something we do not care to repeat. The food was not French nor was it good enough to carry such a price tag. They served their meals with paper napkins and cheap utensils. The restaurant itself however, was quaint and cozy.
We were greeted by an unfriendly and almost hostile manager. There was a mixed up on their part with our reservation as to how many people in our dinner party. The bartender who was also the waiter, gave us great service. The food we ordered was the specials of the night. The steak was bland and chewy. The lamb was moist but bland. Both meat dishes had the same sauce so it covered up the quality of the meat. I had the pasta dish, nothing French about it. The desserts were bad. The pumpkin cheesecake was dried, chocolate bread pudding tasted like over-baked brownies and the crème brûlée tasted like it came from a box.
We’ve been wanting to try this restaurant for awhile now. We tried it and it is not to our liking base on price and quality of the food.
