Many aspects of our meal were wonderful. The pork just happened to be fatty and tough piece. Over half of it was still on the plate but the waiter didn’t ask/see that something was wrong. We cleaned everything else up. Loved the pecan pie!
The Hive is our go to restaurant for celebrating special occasions. Most recently we went for my husband's birthday, and it did not disappoint. I think I have had the rib eye every time I've gone. Highly recommend.
The food was outstanding and the ambiance great. Our wine selection was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
Service & ambience were wonderful. And the food was amazingly delicious.
First time experience for an anniversary dinner and it was quite nice. Service was very accommodating to my husband's allergies and offered up suggestions for alternatives.
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary with us, Brandy! We are so happy to see that you and your husband had such a great first time visiting us. We absolutely appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and hope you and your husband will be back long before next year's anniversary celebration. -The Hive

It was greats, as always... I look forward to the 'warm and classy' being back on the menu..
Thank you for the shout out, MartinO! We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon. -The Hive
Unfortunately, this was a disappointing experience; while the food was very good; the service was underwhelming; our server seemed distracted and inattentive and had to be prompted repeatedly for things like napkins, silverware, and water. The staff in general seemed inconvenience with our presence and were less than responsive.

We had a lovely dinner at Hive. The food was excellent. The service was good. The art is a delightful part of the experience. I would recommend and return.
We are so pleased to see that you had such a lovely dinner with us, jlb1 and that you got to enjoy the art as well. Thank you for celebrating your special occasion with us and we hope to see you soon! -The Hive
Menu for drinks and nightly special, dinner menu not provided. When salad and main dishes served, servers had no idea where to put food, just set on table and walked away. Food was good. But overall, not the experience I’ve had previously.
Hi April, Thanks for dining with us and for your review. We are so sorry that we seemed to miss a few marks during your visit. Our menus have moved exclusively to QR codes because we can no longer offer reusable menus to our guests. So sorry if this left you with a negative first impression. I would love to remedy the situation in the future and look forward to hearing from you if you could reach out to me. Sincerely, John Robinson Food & Beverage Director 479.286.6583
Food was spectacular! Waitress was great! They seated too many people at once and it slowed things down. Don't take that as negative. Absolutely recommend!
Thank you for the shout out, DumasG! We can't wait to share your compliments to the chef and our team. We sincerely appreciate your support and will absolutely look forward to your return. -The Hive
Very good food, very good service. Will visit again!!
Thanks for your review, Marty! See you next time. -The Hive
Unfortunately we had a miserable experience. The service was sketchy and our food took so long we were rushing at the end to try and eat as the restaurant was closing. As a consultation for the screw up they gave us a cheap glass of champagne.
Was NOT worth the money. They should have told us our food was delayed, but they missed that opportunity.
Thanks so much for your review. Our goal is to exceed expectations with every guest and we apologize we fell short during your time with us. We look forward to your next visit and hope to remedy the situation. Please reach out if you would like to discuss. John Robinson Food & Beverage Director 479.286.6583
My husband said the hog chop was the best he had ever had. We had the Mexican Chocolate Cheesecake for dessert and it was elegant, unique, and delicious.
We are so glad you enjoyed! Thanks for leaving a review! -The Hive
We enjoyed a lovely evening at The Hive recently. Great food, wine and atmosphere. Wait staff was excellent! Enjoyed viewing the artwork in 21c Museum Hotel after dinner.
Hi Kristin. Thanks so much your review! Hope to serve you again soon. -The Hive
It was lovely!?
Thanks, Suzy. Glad you enjoyed! -The Hive
Best honey fries I have had!!! The whole experience was great!
We are so glad you enjoyed! -The Hive
The food and drinks were good. It's not the best brunch I've ever had, but our waiter was so nice and the outdoor seating was very enjoyable.
Hi Abby, Thanks so much for dining with us and for your review. We hope to serve you again soon. Thanks, -The Hive
Really lovely hyperlocal food that's well thought out & expertly executed.

Amazing time from the wonderful staff to the delicious food! Great value all around for some incredible food! Having the art gallery attached made for a nice after dinner experience!
Thanks so much for the review, Jeremiah! Hope to serve you again soon. -The Hive
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The meat was cooked to perfection and the flavors delectable. I loved having wine paired with my specific dish and felt pampered and very well taken care of. We'll be back!
Thanks so much for the thoughtful review and for dining with us! -The Hive
Service with Anthony was excellent; the pimento cheese appetizer was wonderful and so was the cod.
We are so glad to hear Anthony took great care of you. Thanks for dining with us! -The Hive
We had a lovely time at the Hive. They brought us complimentary champagne flutes when they learned it was our anniversary.
Thanks, Jamie! We are thrilled you enjoyed! -The Hive
The cod with couscous was wonderful!
Thanks so much for the review. We are glad you enjoyed! -The Hive
The ambiance was relaxed and interesting giving a relaxed feel to this place . I definitely would return to try more dishes. The gazpacho was refreshing. One person went for steak while the other went to the ocean and had Cod both delightful. Service was well-timed and friendly, wine recommendation was superb and came with a delightful tale of its history. A memorable 34 wedding anniversary which was delightful in a restaurant handling the pandemic with class and care. Thank you for a delightful evening!
Hi William. Thanks so much for the thoughtful review! We are thrilled you enjoyed. -The Hive
Thanks for joining us! Hope to see you again soon! -The Hive
Fresh Arkansas peaches and tomatoes in several dishes were a real treat!
Delicious. Wonderful waitress. Outside seating.
Thanks, Stacy! So glad you enjoyed! -The Hive
Food was excellent, service was outstanding
Excellent food - a bit salty, but it is Southern fare, so not unexpected. Appropriate physical distancing of tables, and staff appeared careful and mindful of safety precautions.
Great choice for brunch, tomato gespacho was a great starter
Only a handful of entree choices but all sounded good and we were pleased with our choices
We were staying at the 21c, thus very convenient after a morning bike ride
We stayed two nights at the 21C and ate dinner at the Hive both nights. Service was excellent and the food was quite good. They are doing a good job of social distancing in the dining room and bar area. We love this hotel and its restaurant.
My second time here, with the first time pre-COVID. I did like the temperature screening before coming into the restaurant.
Additional measures were taken compared to other restaurants that social distance guests.
Server was nice.
Food was delicious.
My son moved to Bentonville the first of April and this is the first opportunity to visit him from Tennessee. This restaurant was highly recommended and did not disappoint!
The entire experience was great! Excellent drinks, great food, and the environment was very relaxing. Highly recommend and will definitely be coming back often!
Thanks for your review. We are thrilled you enjoy our beverage program. Our goal is to provide a comfortable space for all of our guests to relax and enjoy themselves. We look forward to your next visit and hope to see you soon! -The Hive
Our entries were not cooked to medium. They were very rare.
Hi John, Thanks for dining with us and for leaving a review. We're sorry your food wasn't prepared to your specifications. We'd love to make it up to you sometime. See you soon! -The Hive
