Nice people but they try too hard with odd food combinations. The truffle risotto that came with the Boursin filet mignon was not well executed- soupy with mushy consistency. Beware, the lobster deviled eggs appetizer is one egg divided in half, something the menu and our waiter failed to mention when our table of three ordered it. We paid almost $300 with tip for three steaks, four drinks, an appetizer and a salad. Came away not happy or unhappy but wish food had been more worth the money. Parking was a challenge.

The only minor thing I would say is that some tables are to close together. It was our Anniversary and we were so close to the other table that I could see what they were watching on it.
Other than that nothing.
I only wish we had one down here in Louisiana

My husband and I were celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary and what a wonderful evening we had at 501 Prime!

From cocktails upstairs at the Bourbon Bar, to a fabulous dinner downstairs - everything was great. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the wine suggested by Dave, was amazing! Our server, Julie, was so precious - she even had flowers on our table when we arrived! Thank you.

We highly recommend 501 Prime!

Amazing food, great service. We did have to wait a bit for our table because they were so packed but they were very accommodating and let us have a few drinks at the bar. My wife loved this place for her birthday!

We loved the wood accented interior; our meals (boursin steak, carmelized scallops) were delicious and beautifully presented; service by Michael was exemplary. We will return.

We made reservations here for an anniversary dinner with friends from out of town and we were not disappointed.
It was our first visit also so we all ordered something different and sampled them all. The food was cooked to perfection and our waiter was very personable.
After dinner we ventured upstairs for a drink and were surprised by the live entertainment on the outside stage.
A wonderful evening and we will be back.

For the price, not worth it. The steak was too fatty, almost a third was cut off, but everything had good flavor. The shrimp was cooked perfectly though.

501 came highly recommended and certainly lived up to the accolades! Everything from service, atmosphere and food exceeded expectations. I had the mushroom risotto which was excellent and my husband had the pork chop which he said was the best he'd ever had!! Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Always love eating here when we visit Hot Springs!! Very nice atmosphere. Food is unique and outstanding!! I recommend always making a reservation at least 2 days ahead of time of vacationing around holidays.

One of the best steaks I've ever had. The waitress was great. She kept our drinks full and made sure we didn't need anything, without being on top of us all night. We will definitely be back.

We had a few issues the last time we came here for a celebration but tried again and all was topnotch to celebrate my brother's birthday! Savannah gave us superb service and our food was delicious and everything we wanted to order was available which had been our issue before. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

We have been to 501 Prime several times and have enjoyed our meals every time. The East coast oysters are a rare find in Arkansas and are consistently excellent. The reason I gave the food a 4 this time is our entrees were a bit bland. My prime rib was cooked rare just as I ordered, but it had little flavor. My husband's steak was also unusually bland. Hopefully, this was just a one-time occurrence. We will be back.

This was our 3rd visit and each time it has gotton worse. we sat down and 2 of the 4 bread plates were dirty. We had 2 Surf & Turf, 1 double cut Porkchop and 1 8oz Filet. Only the filet was edible. For $300 I expect much better. I won't be back.

Service was excellent, and the food—absolutely wonderful! Elegant dining, quiet atmosphere, a really great place to enjoy a special evening. It is very pricey, so it’s definitely a special occasion only restaurant, but one we will go to again!

Personal experience of a human being is the moment-to-moment experience and sensory awareness of internal and external events or a sum of experiences forming an empirical unity such as a period of life. My personal experience of 501prime was one to remember. Excellent customer service. Excellent atmosphere. Excellent meal. I will be returning soon.

We ate downstairs and had poor service from a rude waiter. We went upstairs afterwards and had drinks and listened to live music. Service was much better upstairs. We wish that we would have just gone upstairs to the bar and skipped the downstairs restaurant.

Everything was delicious and great service. You better crack open the piggy bank cause this grub is not cheap by any means. But for a special occasion, I feel it was somewhat worth it.
