Our server was attentive. Food was excellent.
Atmosphere appealing. We thought there was a dress code but saw several men in jeans and two women in workout clothes. We’ll ‘dress down’ for return visit.

Maybe the best food in Hot Springs. We sat at the oyster bar and the service and conversation with the bar tender was great.

We were surprised that the menu online (it said Hot Springs) is not the same as the menu at the restaurant. I mentioned it to the wait staff and was told that's not their menu so they are aware. Pork chops were good, but the blackened ribeye was very fatty and a little tough. Our server was very attentive. We probably won't be back, but give it a try and see what you think. Be prepared to spend some money for your experience.

We made our reservation through OpenTable.. Seated upon arrival and Savannah was our server. She was outstanding. Very attentive but not overwhelming. The Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly and the Scallops were outstanding. The wine list is desirable also. We would recommend 501 Prime and we will be back on our next visit to Hot Springs. Great location and great menu.

First time at 501 Prime and won't be the last!! When you splurge on dinner it's only fun if the food and service are outstanding--it was! There were three of us and the server was happy to bring extra plates because we decided to share two entrees. Thx! Be sure to finish the evening upstairs with a Lemon Drop martini. Absolutely the best I've ever had due to the quality liquors used.

I had scallops which were outstanding. Came with corn polenta and asparagus which were both excellent. House chardonnay at $6 a glass was reasonable. My wife had Hawaiian rib eye, which was tasty and nicely medium rare, but had way too much fat on it. Her house Pinot Grigio was $10 a glass. Deserts of crème broulet and chocolate cake were very good. Service was outstanding. Our waiter went way out of his way to accommodate special requests from our dinner companions. The music was too loud and included commercials, but when we aske our waiter if he could do anything about it, it got switched to a commercial free channel and was a little less loud. It wasn't our idea of fine dining music.


All in all, it was a very pleasant experience despite the minor gripes. We would definitely return.

Food was excellent, service was excellent, and the inside of the restaurant was very nice. The free valet parking was nice as well. The prices were a bit high; I wouldn't bring my kids here, but it's more of an "adult" restaurant anyway. Great choice for a special occasion meal.

Hostess and wait staff were pleasant and friendly. Worked to accommodate our group of six on a busy night. We had a variety of menu items and everyone was happy with their food. Grilled vegetables side is very good. Steaks, salmon and scallops were cooked properly and were served timely. We will definitely go back here.

Our ribeye steaks were only 50% edible due to all the fat on each of them. The lobster bisque was very thin. It would have been edible had it been served with a spoon. We were not able to find our server to request a spoon. Finally another employee came by and saw our problem and brought one. Of course by that time the bisque was totally cold. For this price meal, you expect better.

The food was delicious. Portions were generous and very well priced. Loved the upstairs bar! My only complaint is that the alcohol is way overpriced. I had a dirty martini and my fiance had whiskey and coke. This totaled $27.00 with a small tip for two drinks. Way too much in my opinion.

Restaurant has a great vibe. Valet parking is especially nice for those who have difficulty walking. Food was perfectly prepared and seasoned. Having a friendly police office on duty offers a sense of security that riff-raff and out of control boisterous patrons are not tolerated. The servers were attentive and food delivery was prompt.

Fine dining at its best! We ordered the double cut pork chop. Oh my, the meat was so moist and tender. A very gracious portion. My husband and I split the entree and we still had food left over. Our salads were delicious. He chose the Caesar salad and I had the wedge salad both were very yummy. Dinner would not be complete without desert. We had the chocolate cake with a very rich chocolate icing. Talk about good food! 501 Prime you came to impress.

Everything was perfect and we really enjoyed the personal attention that Micheal took with our table. He is a top notch waiter. Thanks for a wonderful evening. We plan to return in the near future.

We are part time residents of Hot Springs and have sampled the different restaurants, new and old, all around town. 501 Prime is the best! Everything is fresh, the wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. They take care of all the little things others ignore. Our order consisted of raw oysters, oysters bienville, New York strip steak, and the grilled Mahi Mahi. It was all superb. We ordered old fashions for drinks and they were made correctly which is unusual. Most places just muddle and orange and cherry, pour some bourbon in and call it done. The décor is modern and tasteful. Even the parking valets knew the menu and gave us their recommendations for the evening. We will be back ASAP!

I am a native of New Orleans and was in Hpt Springs to visit my niece. She told me of this new place to eat. The steak I had was perfectly cooked. My husband got th double cut pork chop and could not eat it all, it was a lot of meat. We both ordered the champagne and truffle soup, which was also awesome. My husband also enjoyed the well stocked bourbon and scotch bar. Over all, it is the only restaurant I would recommend in that area. I have also recommended this place to my Aunt who also lives in Hot Springs. On my next visit I will be sure to go back.

Amazing service and ambiance. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the most flavorful I have ever eaten. The Boursin filet was absolutely divine! It was cooked perfectly and had the most amazing flavor! We had the shrimp appetizer and oysters on the half shell...both delicious! We can't wait to go again and try other items from the menu.
