The food was different and everything was great. The mashed potatoes were the best I have ever had. The server was knowledgeable of every item on the menu and very nice.

They have a very unique menu. Especially the small plates. The dessert menu had some great options. We really enjoyed the Peanut Butter chocolate Cheesecake. It was perfection.

This is a very sophisticated, suave restaurant with excellent and inventive dishes. The chef, Scott, comes up with some basics, like the steak or pork shank, but also some imaginative creations of his own, like the quail lollipops appetizer.

All the food is delicious, the service is great, and the ambiance is lovely.

Highly recommended!

Table 28 has been on my list for a while, but regrettably, I did not enjoy my experience. The only flavor I could taste in each dish was salt. I was very disappointed.

I generally enjoy Table 28 and have been there several times. Every now and then I think the menu tries a bit too hard with so many different options and the quality sometimes suffer. This was one of those occasions. The food was ok, just not great. I think I would be willing to sacrifice a few menu options for a higher level of execution.

My wife and I were looking for a place to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary. We had heard many good things about Table 28 and we were not disappointed. The ambience was nice, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. It had been a long time since I had bone marrow, a delicacy that I enjoy and unable to find around here. It was great! My wife had the, much talked-about, meatloaf. She was not disappointed either. We will go back.

We have been to Table 28 many times. We have never been disappointed.

This trip was for our 20th anniversary. We opted for the Table 28 (chef's Table). It was a great dinner.

Our first course was was a duck cake slider with crispy duck skin. I have never had anything like it. The duck cake was tender and savory and the skin was like cracklings. It was delicious.

The second course was bone marrow with snails. The marrow was flavorful and the snails were sweet and tender.

The third course was pork belly. It was fatty, as pork belly should be, but very tender and delicious.

The fourth course was beef tenderloin with a fried quail egg. OMG, it was just out of this world good. The beef was a perfect medium rare and the egg added a richness I've never had with a steak.

Dessert was a chocolate cake/pie with a raspberry sauce. Scott told us that he combined a pie and a cake, and he was right. I can't adequately describe it, but it was very smooth but had the consistency of a cake.

Scott is the most innovative chef in Arkansas, bar none. Foie gras with biscuits and gravy. Pickled shrimp with pickled vegetables. Are you kidding me? It is delicious.

Try Table 28. You won't be disappointed.

I had the blackened fish. It should have been marinated, or served in a white wine reduction. Because it wasn't, it seemed dry.

One in our party of three is a trained chef. We shared a starter and had three different entrees. Wild boar, rabbit and calimari steak. Service was exceptional. The tastes and presentation could not have better. Wonderful meal.

Mewh... had too high hopes probably.
There was a nice unknown restaurant in the same spot , hoped it was possibly equal or better according to the reviews. Unfortunately the service and decor was the best part. Wine list was poor, food was really truly mediocre at best.

I've always liked Table 28 and enjoy dining there. The food is delicious and service is excellent. Servers are personable and well informed, but don't hover. The noise level was much higher than it has been in the past, partly due to the fact that the restaurant was full. Highly recommend.

Food was excellent and worth the money, but honestly for how exclusive this restaurant &I the reputation it holds, the service was nothing special or memorable. I had a reservation and upon walking to the hostess stand, waited for over 20 minutes with several other people until someone finally showed up and seated us all. Our waiter was good, but not memorable. The food lives up to the hype, but the restaurant all together is honestly overrated.

We had high expectations based on their reviews, but found our experience to be pretty average. The food was acceptable. The service was okay, though we had a wobbly table and the server didn't offer to move us. Just not what we expected, especially with the cost of our meal. We may go back for Happy Hour but nothing more.

Our group of three foodies enjoyed ordering a large variety of starters and small plates (plus one customized entree of scallops and risotto) so we could taste a bit of everything. It's an odd location and a somewhat odd space, but the great food and great service make it worth it.

This was my third time in two weeks to eat at Table 28. My parents had eaten here a few weeks prior and recommended it to me, so I took my sister to dinner here. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and were able to very pleasant conversations. The quail lollipops are wonderful!! Food was perfect. Definitely my new favorite go to restaurant .

Interesting food. The menu was not much help in choosing what to get. Filet was good as was the sea bass. Quail pops would be better called quail meatballs, but they were the best thing. Much too loud to talk and we were stacked on top of two other couples when there were more open spaces to be.

Very cool space located inside of the Burgundy Boutique Hotel. My first visit to this restaurant with three others also visiting from out of state. Had just finished a round of golf and found it via Open Table. Golf attire?..... no problem. However, we were the least well dressed. The service, still accomodating, was very attentive and helpful making first time food selections. We all chose the Fixed Prixe options which were delicious. The meatloaf and fried chicken were both exceptional and the sticky toffee cake w/pecan gelato was the best dessert. Will definetly return when visiting again. Thank you Table 28!

Firstly, we love Table 28. The food and service are excellent. The fried chicken dish is awesome. I do wonder, however, if Open Table Reservations carry much weight, as a walk up couple just ahead of us was seated at a lovely, quiet table, and we were lead to a two top between the kitchen and restroom exit, and the two tops are quite small. I asked for a different table, and we were quickly given a better table, albeit, Under a vent and next to an eight top. Yep, my wife had to wear her jacket most of the time. It is the 2 time we received the "leftover" or undesirable table, after making reservations. We were fortunate another table was available. Otherwise, again, I recommend Table 28 highly. We will definitely return. Our server was Terrell, and he was fantastic.

Overall, we had a wonderful dinner. At least 2 people in my party were looking forward to eating the sea bass on the menu and were disappointed to hear that it was sold out on a slow Monday evening. The substitute was a salmon which did not sound comparable, so we did not order it. The meals we did choose were very tasty. The scallops and Beef Tenderloin. The appetizer of shrimp and grits and artichoke dip were very good too. The quail lollypops were not as impressive as the waitress made them out to be, but were good.
