Komodo of Northwest AR
Nice dinner and vibe
Thank you very much for giving us a try and for giving us feedback. I am so sorry to hear about the issues you had. I would like to talk to you directly so that I can make this right and investigate further. Please call me at the restaurant at (479) 268-6871 or email directly at email@example.com . Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.
The service was great, just love the call ahead seating. Food was wonderful, served quickly, waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Food was delicious and the place is really cool!!! So happy to have a good Asian restaurant around!!
Thank you. So glad you enjoyed the food. Please come in and see us again sometime.
This place is awesome. Their prices are very good, especially considering the quality of food. The drinks are well priced. The ambiance is exceptional.
Thank you very much for your business and for taking the time to give us such a nice review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the quality of our food. I will share these comments with the chef as he will love to hear it. Thank you again.
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 from a locally owned restaurant! Service was quick and friendly.
Thank you very much for your business and review.
I took my wife to Komodo for her birthday and it was a great experience. The food was fantastic and the staff was very friendly.
Komodo has a chic vibe and the food was delicious! There was an attention to detail to food prep that was above and beyond! I'll definitely be going back to dine here.
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.
It was my dads bday. the last time we went to komodo was for my birthday and it’s been amazing each time!!
Easily one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Don’t miss Komodo!
Amazing food. My husband ordered the chicken claypot and loved it and I had the Thai coconut chicken and it was one of my favorite dishes of all time!! Very nice atmosphere too.
Food was delicious! Had the stir fry lamb and it was fantastic.
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.
Great food— their brunch offerings are good but not as good as the regular menu!
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.
Great food, amazing flavor.
We were seated quickly, our server Jamie was attentive and helpful, food was very tasty. Will definitely return.
My wife and I both thought that the food and service were excellent. The value was excellent as well.
Locally owned and one of a kind. Lots of Gluten Free options!
The patio was great but we weren’t expecting the dueling pianos which began at the end of our meal. The music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other.
Four shared 2 appetizers and 3 entrees. Perfect quantity...suggested by our server. Food delicious, creative and unique for our area. So glad to have this dining option!!
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.
Excellent cuisine and great service. They have a nice Happy our as well. My recommendation is to order lots of plates and share with the table. We “WILL” be 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.
It was Mother’s Day and they weren’t really prepared for how busy it was...the food came out at different times with entrees coming out before appetizers, etc...our server was wonderful and the food was great but a bit pricey...the restaurant is lovely! We will be going back!
One of my favorite restaurants in NWA! Quality across the board and I hope they open a location in Fayetteville!
Komodo is the best Asian restaurant in NWA!
I had a special- stir fried lamb. Service was great- the Chef even came to talk to us st our table!
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.
We came to Komodo for an early Mother’s Day lunch, all of our first time dining. It was quiet, beautiful, and delicious. Our waitress was very sweet and attentive. She gave suggestions and even took a photo for us.
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.
Thank you very much for the business and for taking the time to give us feedback. Really glad you enjoyed everything.
Excelent service and ambiance!
Food was great!
Found Komodo based on YELP reviews. The service was awesome and the food was delicious. This was my first trip to Bentonville and I know I will visit Komodo upon my return.
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!
Thank you very much for your business and for the review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed everything.
