Overall, a nice venue to go in Downtown Little Rock that is a good distance from the busier and noisier part of the River Market, but still within reach. Great view of the river and bridge, especially at night. Large patio. The menu is limited but the options taste wonderful. The restaurant only stocks red wine varieties, though. Interesting.

42 Bar and Table was a lovely experience. Every staff member we came into contact with was very nice and professional. The food was amazing. I had the brisket grilled cheese sandwich and others had the Presidential Burger. Needless to say there were no leftovers even with the generous portion sizes. The sweet potato fries were delicious, as well. I will be back everytime I am in town. It is a must!

always enjoy dining at 42 Bar and Table. Food is good, prices are fair and the ambiance is delightful. Love it when i can dine outside. best patio dining around. I also like that they require masks and vaccination cards. that tells me the staff has been vaccinated. my only complaint is that Bill or Hillary never stop by to say hi.

The food was excellent and the ambiance wonderful out on the river. We had made reservations for outside and thankfully everyone had a copy of their vaccination card because that was required, even though it stated that proof of vaccination was not needed to dine outside. That should be clarified for diners on the website.

Food was good but my salad was drenched in dressing, and my fish was very salty. I truly enjoyed the environment and the service was excellent. I didn’t say anything to the servers as they were so accommodating. I would definitely return when in I’m in town.

I don’t know if they were short-staffed, but service was very slow and there were not a whole lot of people there. The patio is great and so is the food

Have always enjoyed having lunch at 42 Bar & table. Food is always interesting and fresh. Service is excellent. I particular enjoy going there when the weather is good and having lunch on the patio overlooking the bridge and the lovely green area. Such a pleasure. Look forward to returning soon. Maybe will see Bill and Hillary there! I'm waiting for the to invite me up to the penthouse.

I arrived for brunch and was one the first customers, so I was seated promptly. However, it took a while for my order to arrive. I noticed others arriving after me receiving the orders. I ordered the crab benedict with a solid poached egg, so that may have slowed my order. My breakfast potatoes and my order of fruit each arrived separately, so I snacked on them while waiting for my eggs. Overall the atmosphere was quite nice and comfortable.
