Food was very good as it has been previously. Great setting in the main dining area (kitchen/bar area). Waitress was not as good as servers we have had a number of times before. Slow to respond, seemed a bit overwhelmed by the # of tables she had. Forgot to bring back a doggy bag of a good sized portion of one meal and we left rather than wait any longer to see what happened. Would be good if there was a manager on duty who made himself available.

Our waitress Joslyn (sp?) was one of the best we’ve had. I look forward to seeing her again, during our next visit. The rest of the staff was also fantastic. VERY pleasant experience!

This was the best meal I have had in a long time! We had the burrata app and it was amazing! The entries were delicious my husband had the duck and I had the Arkansas bologease again they were so so good! And lastly we had the creme brulee for dessert. The service was great as well! I don't see how this isn't the #1 restaurant in Hot Springs.

This place was incredible! Found it by accident on open table in Little Rock. It’s got to be the best kept secret in town. The food was delicious. Seriously up to New Orleans standards! Our waiter, Adam was also top notch. The whole dining experience was amazing. If you like exceptionally good food and outstanding service this is the place for you. We met the GM too. Dylan Garcia made the rounds to every table paying attention to every detail. Everything here was super!

Our server Payton was excellent! We had dinner for our anniversary and she brought out a dessert that was decorated with happy anniversary. The food was not up to what we were used to. The red sauce seemed like there was a change? A nutmeg or cinnamon taste to it, maybe it was a one off. In past the food has been as excellent as the service. Still we had a good time an Payton made it very special for us.
