Has a first date and it was perfect. The food and drinks was great. We were able to talk to each other and get to know each other. We both had a wonderful time.

We were in Fayetteville for a performance. Lovely place located right around the corner from the event center. Food (Evening Special of fish and Filet, Parsnip/Ginger soup, Caesar salad) was marvelous! Excellent drink selection. Impeccable service and ambiance. Well done, Theo’s!!

The restaurant had some issues with water damage but we were seated in the lounge area which was more than fine. However given the small number of tables and the number of servers the service was really slow and we were sat for 10 minutes before anyone took our drink order ( we had to flag someone down). The wine then took another 10 minutes to get to us and then only three of the four glasses were poured. The servers were pleasant but they really can’t say they were understaffed as only half the place was open and a lot were just stood around chatting to each other. Overall a disappointing experience as the food was actually good.

Outstanding place! Our first time here and we were very impressed. The ambiance was perfect for conversation, the drink list was impeccable and the service was superb. Our server, Jordan, was the most prepared server that I have ever seen. We made our reservations through open table and thus he knew of our dietary restrictions. He came to the table with information and suggestions to meet our every need. He knew the menu items so well he could tell us how they would change it up to meet our dietary goals. I’ve literally been around the world. I’ve lived in great food cities such as New Orleans and Philadelphia. Jordan, by far, is the most knowledgeable server that I have ever seen in my travels. The chef, Devin Gamache, prepared truly amazing food. We had the duck and the filet. She remarked that it was the best steak she’d ever had. The seasoning and marinade was absolutely well balanced and perfect. She and I could not have been happier with our meals. As for Theo’s overall, we will be back...over and over again when we come to the area. We love it and we know you will too.

The service and food were excellent. This was a customer dinner and the perfect spot to have conversation without it being to loud . Ambiance was nice, although a bit dark for me, especially for a business dinner. Probably nice for date night.
Wine suggestion was good , although waiter did lead us to the most expensive bottle first.
Timing of food from appetizer to dessert was appropriate and considerate.

We pass through Fayetteville several times a year. We always have dinner at Theo's. It never disappoints. A good evening starts with the service, and then continues with top quality food prepared well. It is always a wonderful evening.

I love this place! I can count on it always to be a wonderful experience. Our server, Jordan, was perfect. Our favorite Eastern Promise from the bar and the pork shoulder appetizer keep us coming back.

The food and service were both excellent. Although we were seated near the kitchen, the area was fairly quiet. The only unpleasant noises came from a woman who was seated nearby. After she left with her party, we enjoyed a lovely evening. We look forward to our next visit!

They had us ready to sit down and even gave us a complimentary champagne toast as we were celebrating a birthday. The staff was very friendly and our waiter, Sebastian, was top notch. The food and cocktails were amazing and we will definitely be back! I am dying to try the happy hour specials.

Our server was wonderful. We forgot to get her name but she had short blond hair and went to college in Philadelphia. She accommodated us wanting to move our table a couple times due to the ridiculously loud expeditor. We had the mussels which were great and the swordfish special that our server recommended- it was fantastic. We think Theo's is great - best "nice restaurant" in Fayetteville.

I visited Theo's to celebrate my Dad's 80th birthday. I noted that it was Dad's 80th birthday on the OpenTable reservation. Unfortunately, I forgot the candles. We declined dessert, and I planned to bring the candles to another dinner the following night. But to my surprise, the waiter brought out dessert on the house to celebrate Dad's birthday! I was amazed and delighted at his thoughfulness. When I asked, he even had a candle so I was able to sing Dad Happy Birthday at Theos. Thanks! The only negative is that the student crowd dresses extremely casually.

There’s isn’t a better restaurant in Fayetteville for foodies, happy hour enthusiasts, date nights, and special occasions. Plenty of variance in the food and drink menus, all done extremely well. Great atmosphere. Valet parking. Middle of downtown. Five stars all around.

Let me explain. My wife and I are in town each year and look forward to a great meal at Theo’s to celebrate her birthday. Unfortunately, we came this year just as Theo’s was introducing a new menu. I ordered a shrimp linguini entree and my wife order the filet mignon. Our orders came out in an acceptable time, however . . .the linguini was between uncooked and al dente, but not terrible. My wife’s filet was raw, as in deep purple raw, so we sent it back. About 20 minutes passed when I asked the server as she passed by if they had forgotten us. Then I heard the chef say to one of the cooks to butterfly it and try again! So, we were finished and simply asked for our check. The sever was very apologetic and only charged us for our appetizer. I was surprised that neither the chef, nor the manager came to the table, but ok! Our check was under $10 and we left a $10 tip so as not to penalize the server. My wife and I went back go our hotel room and celebrated her birthday over cold popcorn and tap water. What a night!

We may return to Theo’s on a future trip to Fayetteville, but I’ll be checking out the reviews closely beforehand.
