    We always enjoy dining at 42 Bar and Grill. The luncheon salads are delicious and give good portions with fresh ingredients. And the desert selection is very nice as well (especially the key lime pie!)

    Went here for brunch while on an anniversary trip to Little Rock. We had an appetizer of the New Orleans beignets. They came to the table quickly and were hot & fresh! For entree I had the eggs benedict. The eggs were perfectly poached and the overall dish was spectacular! My partner had the breakfast place and he throughly enjoyed it. The staff was friendly and provided quick service. The total for a cup of coffee, the appetizer, and 2 entrees was around $40, which we thought was pretty reasonable for the amount of food we got. I would definitely come back next time I’m in Little Rock!

    We throughly enjoyed the entire experience. We were there to visit the Clinton Library the next day. Checking-in the night before, our hotel front desk recommended The 42 Restaurant in the Library. We took the recommendation and could not have been more pleased! The lobster bisque (puréed) appetizer was served w/ a tiny pitcher of sherry and was perfection! The grilled salmon with risotto and asparagus and the seafood mac n cheese were the best we have EVER had. The desserts looked great, but we were already in food nirvana, so we declined our pleasant and attentive server. We highly recommend The 42 … and the Library experience.

    The New Year's Eve special was excellent. We both had the beef tenderloin with the salad, sides, and dessert. The pecan dessert was most tasty! Small crowd so the night was perfect

    Everything was great! The only surprise came when they charged a 23% gratuity for a party of 4 adults and one child. We did add additional gratuity but it was still surprising. With all included with additional gratuity the bill was $350.

    Went to brunch with friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Made reservations, valet service at the circle, seated promptly, superior server. Had the pull apart monkey bread as an appetizer. Absolutely delicious. Our brunch items were served hot, fresh and appropriately sized portions. Great meal. Great service. Great value.

    We normally have a great time at 42.... but it's different now. The servers were confused on where to sit us even with a reservation. The food was really bad super fatty over cooked lamb and steak. We actually just kinda laughed and chalked it up to a change in Chefs or Management. It's was a bust for a $250 night. We weren't mad, but probably won't be returning.

    The facility was wonderful. We arrived early but was seated immediately, chose the outside because of the beautiful fall weather. All little chilly so one of the servers turned on the tableside heater for us. The food selection was very good and dessert was wonderful. Highly recommend.

    Service was slow and food was hit and miss. Waited 10 minutes for the waitress to show up when it was not busy; she apologized for being late but service was slow throughout our meal. One entree, shrimp po boy, was very good. Grilled cheese with brisket not very good; brisket was dry and sauce was non-existent. Everyone at the Clinton Library was extremely friendly and helpful. The 42 Restaurant did not measure up to the standards of the Library.
