The Hive at 21c
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.
My boyfriend and I had a lovely Christmas Eve dinner at The Hive. I love the art installation in the restaurant, and it's great to be able to check out the art galleries in the 21(C) hotel lobby before and after dinner.
We had a pre-dinner drink in the bar; the bar tender was friendly without being obtrusive and when asked about an "interesting local beer," he lined all of his options on the bar and described each one.
We shared the mixed lettuce salad with black walnuts and sorghum vinaigrette - it was perfectly light and a great showcase of local (?) ingredients.
Thank you thank you for offering a purely vegan entree option. It's so disappointing to have to resort to salads and side dishes when fine dining. My boyfriend's Carrot and Curry Panisse was absolutely delicious, and purely vegan! It reminded me of the Sri Lankan curries I tasted while living overseas.
I loved my scallops - the menu description didn't do the plate justice, and unfortunately, when I asked our server if there were any actual vegetables in the dish, he really couldn't explain. But I went with it anyway and was pleased to have a generous portion of cooked greens tossed in with the fennel and farro, and the mandarian wedges balanced the dish nicely. (It would have been nice had the mandarins been segmented.)
I will continue to visit The Hive every time I'm in Bentonville.
Christmas Eve dinner was outstanding! Pumpkin hummus was a great start. Swordfish was excellent as well as the roasted chicken. A definite repeat.
Excellent evening and excellent food!
Great food, ambiance. Service was inconsistent. One server took our appetizer and drink order. Another took our order served us and seemed unusually casual. No two minute check back about the quality of our food. For example, When I asked for more water, ( glass had been empty quite awhile) he was like of course you’ll get more water, You don’t need to ask. But the point is, I DID need to ask.
With only 3 other tables in the place it’s hard to figure out why we were not afforded attention and regular points of service.
Loved the space, chicken was amazing, crispy and moist.
We were staying at the 21C hotel and were going to a wedding the next day. Read a review of the restaurant and decided to try it. The food was excellent!!
Really lovely restaurant with a nice menu, terrific bar & wine list along with very helpful &knowledgeable wait staff. Totally worth the drive
Angela is awesome!
Food always great
Atmosphere: always first rate!
My fiance and I went in the evening for her birthday and we both really enjoyed the meal! Wonderful flavors and ambiance. Service was excellent. We also both enjoyed some of the best cocktails we have had in Bentonville! Recommend the Hive for drinks or dinner!
The best Gluten-free food west of the Mississippi!! Where else can you get toasted GF baguettes????
the roasted cauliflower is incredible.
