There was no one to greet us when we went in and seating was slow even though we had reservations. We were finally seated a foot away from another table (it was Valentines Day) and when I asked to be seated at another table that was open, the matre di audibly grumbled, huffed and puffed...but did finally reseat is. Fortunately the food was great although super expensive! $49 for a small portion of sea bass.
This restaurant is a gem of Bentonville. Authentic French food in a quaint and unique setting. We love it!!
Excellent service and the ambiance is quaint and fitting for a wonderful relaxing dinner. Try the Mussels!!!
Intimate venue with attentive service. Surprised to find authentic French bistro food in this part of the country! Great value ; charming proprietor served our meal.
Cozy comfortable feel to the restaurant! Service was inviting and friendly! Great place to celebrate a special event or just have a relaxing dinner with your special someone! Filet mignon was cooked to perfection! Be sure to save room for dessert! The creme brûlée is delicious, as well as the bread pudding!
The food was not overly inventive but very tasty. It had a cozy atmosphere and was nice for conversation. As a wine lover and collector, I thought the wine list was overpriced, with a much higher markup that it deserved.
Always our favorite place to go to! Been our favorite place for years!
Great service, very good food and nice wine list.
We had a wonderful dining experience last night! The pan seared tuna tower, short ribs bourguignon & chocolate bread pudding were all amazing! It was very quaint, quiet & the service provided by Precious & Greg was top notch. We look forward to returning soon!
Soon as we arrived ( on time ) short guy did the head move, I guess his way of saying hello! We had the mussels for our appetizer & they were terrible, the meal followed & the same terrible, there were only three tables being served & had to go to the bar to refill a glass of wine! The waitress was the rudest, don’t see how she maintains a job working with the public. We won’t be back or recommend this place.
We were surprised and happy to find Petit Bistro open Christmas Eve. It was the perfect place to celebrate with friends. The service was great. The food was first class. Our favorite place in Bentonville.....and NW Arkansas. Five stars all the way.
Great place for any occasion. Small venue and great ambience so good for date/anniversaries. Amazing service; definitely will return!
Good food, waiter was not friendly
Best food and service in Bentonville!
Great food and great service from Precious as always
Used OpenTable for reservation. Very pleased with communication. This is a pricy restaurant so expected linens on the table, and for the price, not a paper napkin. Would have appreciated fresh flowers or candles. Although mentioned special birthday occasion, no note was made of it. Very disappointed for the restaurant that they had so few customers. Still, food, bar and service, all were excellent. Wouldn’t have hurt to have the wait staff smile. We were there for the food, and it did not disappoint!
Tried this restaurant with friends and found the food to be quite good. Ambience is great with a great central bar. Menu is limited but all good. Service was personal and excellent.
This is a great little restaurant...excellent food, great wine list. Atmosphere is great for relaxed dinner out.
We loved our meal! The only complaint was the couscous was a bit clumpy and flavorless, otherwise everything was amazing. Short ribs were to die for, and my husband enjoyed his petit filet. Chocolate bread pudding wasn’t what I was expecting, but still delish nonetheless. Can’t wait to return!
Food was okay. Would not go back to sit indoors. The patio looks amazing but it’s closed for the season at the moment. They said they could make any kind of cocktail but I wish they had a cocktail menu. They just have a wine list. Server was very friendly though. Would like to return in the warmer months for the patio.
Excellent Food and even better Service, great selection of entrees and wine
The food was exquisite. We had Brie and crab cakes as appetizers. We both got the short ribs as an entree and we had the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. My only criticism was that they don’t serve bread while you’re waiting and I think regular bread pudding would be better than chocolate. Overall it was really good and I would go back.
Great venue. Very cool space. Food very good and service great. Very cozy spot if that is what you’re looking for. As a professional Chef I enjoyed the evening. Very nice!
You Gotta try it!
This place was unimpressive given the reviews I read before reserving. We waited an hour after our appetizers for our entrees, which seemed rather long. The prices were really steep for food that was good, but not great.
We enjoy this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is very efficient.
The food was amazing, the service outstanding and the drinks very tasty. My only negative was the dust on the chair legs and around the base of the table.
We will probably go again.
We had a salad and pizza. Both were OK. Seemed pricey. The martinis were good.
The Petit Bistro is a fantastic dining experience!
Fantastic food and charm! Great service and now my favorite place to eat in Bentonville.
Excellent food, great customer service, wonderful atmosphere!
Always excellent food and service. No idea why people aren’t here more
Great little bistro!! The mussels are outstanding!! Yummy yummy! We will be back!
wonderful find will come back soon food was great service was terrific and room was quite
We loved the charm and ambiance. Your menu offered great vegetarian options, but for those that would like to substitute the grains for veggies. I feel like the portion of what is be substituted should be the same. My sea bass was delicious and the eggplant and tomatoes were delightfully prepared, but the few assparagus that were subbed for the couscous was a tiny bit under cooked and tough. ( hint to restaurants, cauliflower rice is so easy and not that expensive to keep on hand for those who eat Paleolithic or even keto, and it tastes wonderful if done correctly) our wait staff was great and the wine selection was good.
Little disappointed in the food overall. The food wasn’t bad by any means but I guess I expected a little better overall quality. The wait staff wasn’t the most friendly but not rude either. Overall........3 stars.
Always do a great job! Love going to eat at this restaurant.
Le Petite was a gem. It was my first time, but a quaint nice place with tremendous atmosphere. I felt as though I was deep in the woods in this charming restaurant. Additionally, the service was first class and the food was outstanding. A 5 star and a must for anyone visiting NWA.
One of the only places in NWA where you can get really good Sea Bass. Also the beef short ribs are amazing and the cocktails are measured to perfection.
This is the second time we have dined at Petit Bistro and after having had a disappointing first trip we decided to see if this was a one off. It wasn’t.
The service is very friendly but I just get a view that the chef/manager are bored. At least four of the entree’s come with the exact same sides which are grilled vegetables and cous cous. All really cheap to make and not paired to any dish just a means to pad out your protein of choice. I ordered a shrimp puttanesca. What turned up was shrimp Alfredo, rich in cream with over cooked shrimp and a couple of olives thrown in. Puttanesca does not have cream in the sauce and is one of the most recognizable and easy dishes to make for any chef.I just feel that the owners have lost interest in the place and just make money off the backs of their regular clientele.
We will not visit again and perhaps the owners should stop being so lazy with the menu and get some enjoyment back of experimenting with dishes.
