The Hive at 21c
Not very kid friendly menu, but a penguin joined us for dinner and that helped. They did make a plain grilled cheese for my son and my scallops were stellar. Plus, they served cotton candy with the check!
Everyone was interested making sure that we had the best service that they could offer. but as it is , everyone needs training, so there were some minor glitches. The food was very well prepared and presented. The ambiance of the Hive is Edgy, which we appreciated. The exhibit in the gallery was fantastic and very appropriate for the times. Over all the experience was very good.
Interesting, bordering on BIZARRE. Scallops delicious, but white beans w grapefruit sections unappetizing. Red fish and accompaniments very good. Atmosphere and decor far out of the ordinary!! Deserts wonderful tho. Will be ONE TIME EXPERIENCE for us...
They worked hard to accommodate my numerous food allergies. The food was delicious and I felt very safe. Thank you!!!!!
I really enjoyed my dinner I had the rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection. My children also loved the food and actually getting to see fine dining. We are out in the country and we have never ate at as a place as nice as the hive. I also liked the decor and learning and interesting fact about out penguin art that was put at our table. Our waiter was also delightful and very prompt with our orders and our drinks.
Would recommend the Hive for a drink and tour of the attached museum. The restaurant is very interesting and has a good vibe. The food is not. Would highly recommend the bar area and museum. Museum is very well done. Very well! Current exhibit was truly incredible.
Great food, great experience. My only wish was that I knew about that complimentary cotton candy before ordering dessert. It was delicious, but my wife felt she had to choose from the dessert menu to satiate her sweet tooth. I'm sure the intent was not to bump up the bill, but let us know first next time!
First timers for us and we loved it and will be back soon!
Hive is connected to 21c hotel in Bentonville. Good food but not the very best and it's pretty pricey. No real complaints but thought this place would have over the top great food. Everything must be ordered separately. Noisy.
The seating can be very close together, you’ll know everything about whomever is sitting next to you.
The food was very good, but felt it to be a little over priced by $20-30. The grits were excellent but the pork chop, although tasty, was a bit fatty.
Excellent food by an award winning chef. There’s nothing more to say.
My wife and I enjoyed a exquisite multi course dinner with cocktails that were perfectly matched. The staff knew exactly when to help and when to give us privacy. We will definitely be going back.
Excellent experience, food was amazing especially desert.
Went on Valentine's Day and they had a special menu. Food was good but way over priced for what you were served.
We went for Valentine’s Day. The food was amazing and the staff was great!!!
The atmosphere is lively and beautiful. The limited menu on Valentines Day wasn’t appealing and I made the unfortunate decision of picking the crab Mac&cheese. That crab was extremely bold. Yet my wife loved her beef tenderloin. I’m going to give the Hive another try when they have a full menu.
Simple celebration after the completion of some hard work!
It was amazing. Scallops cooked perfect. Thank you for the meal!
Lovely spot with excellent local food, creative and delicious. Fine for vegans and vegetarian folks. A little pricey but worth it now and then.
The Hive has made its way to one of my favorite restaurants of all time. Every dish ordered was made with quality ingredients, great proportions and tasted amazing. Will be making the trip to NWA just to eat here more often!
Great restaurant in an impressive setting. We enjoyed the food, drinks and ambiance. Would highly recommend.
Great for a special treat. Food is very good and unique takes on combinations
I had heard a lot about this place, and was left very underwhelmed. None of the food was bad, but it wasn’t exactly good. The only thing that was awful was what they called cornbread. That was an insult to cornbread, it was the blandest thing I’ve ever tried.
The service was pretty good, and that was all that was good. Everything was, meh
Everything was wonderful and we were made to feel very special
I have eaten at 21c several times and it has always been an excellent experience. The staff is always top notch . The ambience is excellent , modern, and fresh . There is always a vegan option and I never want to leave. My companions loved the food and were relaxed and fully engaged in fun, dining and conversation. Our waters glasses were kept full consistently. Service was constant and never in the way. Bravo!
A very nice evening. Good drinks. Good food. Good service. I will return to the Hive.
Service was excellent, very attentive. Food generally very good. A couple of small things prevented 5 stars. The black cod entree was outstanding except for the cod, which had the least flavor of all the components. The chocolate cranberry dessert was heavy on the too sweet cranberry. The duck special was excellent. The cavatelli appetizer was fabulous. The root beer float dessert drink was awesome.
Great service, our server knew way more about the preparation of the food than any server I’ve ever had.
The bar manager came to our table to explain a drink that we ordered that we want to make at home.
The food was the best we’ve had since moving to the area from Cincinnati a year ago!
We WILL be back!
Beer selection good. Food average
The staff was so fun and attentive and the food was fantastic. Thank you!
We have been to the Hive several times in the past year. Three other than Saturday evening one of the time we brought another.couple.
This time was my wife’s birthday and Brian picked up on conversation and he told cook who furnished cookies on the house. Very nice and considerate.
We will return, always a good place to come too.
Great date night at The Hive. Always ask for a green Penguin to be at your table. Cool art!
Great Service w/ tasty imaginative food. Definitely a must when in Bentonville
The food and drinks were amazing. The 25 minute egg is a must have!
Food tasted good but very small portions. Paid $200 and left extremely hungry. Ran thru a drive-thru on the way home. Food was tasty and unique. Overall, had a good experience.
The food was yummy and actually thought it was the best meal we had while in Bentonville. The decor seems to cheapen the restaurant but not a deal breaker. Only thing we were disappointed in was the fact that as part of the dining experience the restaurant brings you a cotton candy dessert. When we finished our meal the waiter brought us our check. We inquired about the cotton candy treat. He said he’d have to make some more but it would take about two minutes. We thought this was a bit odd as it’s part of their routine for every table. Needles to say he did prepare one and it was quite yummy. What he should have done is ask if we wanted to wait while he prepared more rather than putting us in an awkward position of asking if we could get one. Would recommend the place based on food quality and the art exhibit in the hotel is quite entertaining.
This place should be amazing, could be great, but food was mediocre. Not sure why, maybe no competition?
Wonderful! The food was perfect and the service was the best we have had in years.
Treat yo seff.
Peguins, penguins, penguins.❤️
Get the chicken.
