The service was good, but the food was just ok. We ordered beef and chicken dishes. The beef was bland and the chicken was too chewy. Probably won’t go back.

Kat's service was outstanding. She was attentive and never intrusive. She chatted with us and our friends when she had a moment and we enjoyed her brief company. When I told her about the problems with the chicken being tough and over cooked in my Chicken clay Pot dish, she immediately took a new order and took the Clay Pot dish back. The Leeky Beef dish she brought back was very good. My wife's dish, Garlic Shrimp with Noodles was not to her liking. She said it lacked flavor. I've had beef dishes here twice now and they are what I will come back for. Also, I'll ask to be seated at one of Kat's tables.

I asked to be seated in the bar, I was not. Traveling alone, I prefer to not sit alone as it brings attention to that fact. Could I have spoken up? Maybe. But my wishes were in print, why should I have to? Why have the option if you are going to ignore them? The service was excellent and my wait staff was attentive and even answered a couple of questions about the area. The food went from excellent- the citrus jicama salad, to okay--the Thai basil chicken coconut, to very good--the mango and sticky rice. My drink was well made and I liked it very much.
I wouldn't suggest this place for singles or families as the fare is rather unique, but for a couples dinner it would be a good fit.

Thank you very much for your business and for taking the time to give us feedback. I reviewed your reservation and your request for the bar did not come through on our side. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will certainly take this up with Open Table to avoid this in the future. We are more than happy to seat our guests anywhere they'd like as we want them to be comfortable. We hope to have the opportunity to earn your business again. Thank you again.

Great food. Love that the chef came around twice to see if we liked the food- very nice touch. We also ate early (545) so hard to tell what it looks like when at peak. My wife and I ordered individually but because food was so good we ended up eating family style.

We will return to try more.

My wife and I absolutely love this place. The food and service are simply outstanding, particularly for Asian cuisine. They have a very good cocktail menu, and the wine list, though not extensive, is well-thought out. The only reason that the ambiance didn't get 5 stars (it's a very beautiful space, modern and elegant) is a ding for some rather uncomfortable chairs. The value piece is simply due to the fact that this is not inexpensive food. That said, you get what you pay for and Komodo is worth the ticket price.

Took my dad for Father’s Day lunch and my mom was with us, too. We all ordered a bento box and the food was yummy! Loved the Asian slaw. My mom had a choking attack and everyone (server, host, manager) was so accommodating and helpful. She took her food home to enjoy later.

The food sounded interesting but it was somewhat disappointing when we actually ate it. The cucumber appetizer was supposed to have some Sambal on it. There was no hint of red when looking at them, and there is no hint of heat when eating them. The Seabass with turmeric is likewise – it was good but there was no physical evidence of turmeric when looking at the fish nor was there evidence of turmeric when eating it.

It was a slow night, but service was uneven as was the delivery of food from the kitchen.

It was a good meal, but for the price I would’ve expected more. I would go back, but I’m not sure that I will go back.

Komodo has quickly become our new favorite restaurant in the Northwest Arkansas area. Normally we come with at least four people so we can take part in a broader portion of their shareable menu. Our absolute favorite dish, the Claypot Chicken.

Took a group to celebrate Mother’s Day for my mom and my aunt. The food was okay, the drinks were great and the ambiance was lovely.

I recommend it as a place to snack and drink. As a dinner destination? I may need to try it again.

An open, airy, modern, and spacious space serving eclectic, innovative food and drink. Make sure you try one of the vegetable side dish along with entrees. Everything we tried was fresh and delicious including Bok Choy, Lamb, Arctic Char, Chicken, Squid Salad, and Edamame. We certainly will return when we're in the area again.

I was expecting real Asian food and not "Asian like" food. It didn't live up to the hype. My food was really hot and I didn't realize it would be hot. My friend's Garlic Chicken didn't taste like it had garlic. There were only 4 tables with people when we were there and I don't think our waitress had any training. Never asked if we wanted anything to drink and we had to tell her everything.

Thank you very much for taking the time to give us a review on Open Table (and Yelp). We really appreciate the feedback. I reached out to you on both reviews to hopefully learn more about your experience and try and make it right. I will reach out to you directly again. Thank you again. Hope to hear from you soon.

The food is truly outstanding. It is truly an upscale dining experience in a beautiful space that has probably the nicest ambience and decor of any restaurant in Northwest Arkansas. It is not "traditional" Chinese or Japanese food, so it would have wide appeal to many. The food is unique and delicious.

The first time we dined here we thought that it was great, and we were extremely happy to see that we liked it even better the second time, which is rare. On both occasions it exceeded our expectations.

I believe that it is a "hidden gem" in Northwest Arkansas, as it really does not get the attention and the business that it deserves. Truly it is a top 5 restaurant for the area.

Great food, great drinks and great atmosphere. Had a good time and could not have enjoyed tastier food in the Bentonville area (the cooking is truly exceptional). Some items are a bit pricy, but it’s a scratch kitchen and the proof is in the taste! If you do nothing else, stop there for lunch and get a $15 entree, your eyes will be opened!
