Valentine’s date night. They had a special 5 course meal. The first course was oysters. They were extremely salty. 2nd course one of us had the chicken livers and the other the pork belly. The pork belly was delicious but the chicken livers more salt than chicken liver. The salt was so overpowering that it almost ruined the rest of my meal. The beet soup next was ok. The beef tenderloin was good and seasoned perfectly. Dessert was tiramisu eclairs. They were ok but not my favorite.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Valentines evening at the Hive. Nice creativity on the 5 course meal, a little pricey but the quality was very high and better than I expected for a Bentonville restaurant. Great wine, beer, and spirits selection at a reasonable price so that made up for the smaller portions. The service was impeccable. Once we get moved to the area permanently we will return!

Great food. Ribeye steak is the best in town. Hog chop was also great but slightly pricey.

High expectations were not met. Award-winning entree of chicken in biscuit was only okay. Friend’s frittata very disappointing. Service great, however. Loved the lobby and hallway artwork.

We live in Bella Vista and was so disappointed with Lakeview restaurant so we decided to try the Hive and compare. There is no comparison. The whole experience at the Hive was great. Our server Anna really made us feel welcome and explained the dishes and helped us decide. She is a gem. The food had such wonderful layers of flavor. Had a great dinner and a even better time. Will be back

Wonderful food, wonderful flavors, and have no complaints--just very full at the end. Especially loved the touch of the sour apple cotton candy at the end!

Why do they have Wasps on honeycombs and not HONEY BEES! These things are scary with huge stingers and have absolutely NOTHING to do with honey.

New Years Eve.Be better prepared. Wait staff was grumpy.

The menu was somewhat limited- food was very good; waiters excellent.
View: I got tired looking at the hive, the bees, etc. It wasn’t a pleasant scene for a meal.

Fantastic food and great atmosphere! The scallops and the hog chop were phenomenal. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who doesn't mind paying a little bit more for amazing, healthy, fresh food. We actually returned to the restaurant 2 days after our date night for brunch, and the brunch food was just as great.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. Good Burbon list, great cocktails. Appetizers varied. Liked what we had. Our waitress was very good and also friendly. The bar got more active as the evening progressed. Seems like a good place for drinks even if not dining. Will go back next time we're in town.
