Petit Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Great French cuisine in a very charming house built out of stone. The service was excellent, the food awesome and the atmosphere very cozy. The wine selection looked very good with a full bar. Menu has a good selection with entrees at about $30 . I had the crab cakes as an appetizer and the short ribs as the main course and both were superb. Staff was very friendly. Will make it a point to go back when in Bentonville again.
Our meal was absolutely delicious. My mom had lamb chops and they were perfectly cooked and deliciously seasoned. I had a chicken dish that was also wonderful. The portions were generous. The menu is mediterranean/french with a nice variety of options- something to appeal to everyone. The service was attentive but not obnoxious, noise level low, adequate spacing between the tables. We went to celebrate my mom's 89th birthday and there was ample parking, a few steps up to the restaurant but good handrails. I would recommend using Google maps as it's tucked away a bit from town- the restaurant is set on beautiful grounds. I wouldn't bring a young child to this restaurant, fine for teens.
What a great place! The food was excellent, the environment warm and the staff very pleasant. Even when we ordered "out of the box" by selecting three appetizers and two desserts, everyone went with the flow. The portions were perfect and everything tasted great! We will definitely be back for salads and main courses.
My husband and I chose Petit Bistro for our first solo date night after having a baby, and we were not disappointed! The ambiance was very romantic, the service was amazing, and the food was outstanding. I will definitely be dining here again!
This place was really great; although it was a little nicer than my date and I had anticipated. We both weren't refined enough to know a lot of the French names for the food so we had to look them up. Once we received our food, it was amazing! Tad pricey, but less than Ruth's Chris. Overall really great place.
Petit Bistro is the best restaurant in Bentonville for a date. The French Mediterranean cuisine here is incredible, and they're not married to the menu - my date couldn't decide between the sea scallops or the filet, so they just made a surf and turf plate and made her happy.
The bistro is housed in an historic building with soft lighting and a quiet atmosphere which sets a good stage for intimate conversation and makes it fantastic for date night.
I Love La Petit Bistro and recommend it highly!!!
We chose Petit Bistro as the location to celebrate our 9 year anniversary. It was magical. Service excellent. Lamb chops my husband ordered he commented were the best he had ever eaten. I had the pork shanks with plum sauce that were divine! We will most definitely return to Petit Bistro for the quiet ambience, the great service, and the special memories. Thank you!
Several of the items on the menu had bones which suggested that the chef must appreciate the flavor bones add to a dish -- Osso Bucco, veal chop, pork shank, etc.
2 of us cleaned our plates, another member of the party needed to take hers home because of the large amount of pasta in the dish and my chop was bigger than I realized.
Our second visit to Petit Bistro. It was excellent the first time, and continues to reach that level.
Its setting is cozy, but convenient, an old rock house. Dress is casual, if desired, but you would not feel uncomfortable in jacket and tie. The menu is sort of French, with a Mediterranean nuance. I tried the veal chop special with couscous, it was prefectly cooked and delicious. The wine list is medium quality, not enough by the glass, and too many "boutique" labels, or unfamiliar new vinyards. Excellent, attentive service.
We shall return as often as possible.
WE celebrated a late Christmas at Petit Bistro and could not have been happier: great variety on the menu pleased each of us from age 13-73. The food and service were just excellent. Thank you for a wonderful evening. What could make this better? A cracking fire in a fireplace! The place just begs for the warmth of a hearth.
Dario, the owner, personally attended to us and did a fantastic job! He was patient as we asked questions about the menu and in helping us try to pick the perfect wines for the evening. The three of us at the table all loved each of our meals, and the atmosphere was quaint yet elegant. We will definitely be back!
Went for first time last night. Had studied the menu and cocktail list before on Yelp. Martini's were listed at $9.99 and pizzas about $18. After one pizza and 3 weak watery martinis, was presented with a bill for $88 !
Needed to get my date home, so simply left. The martini menu on site listed no prices. We had Lemon Drops, $20 a drink !?! This stinks. You better ask the prices before ordering any cocktail. Maybe they charged extra for frosting the glasses?
Oh - there's no lock on the one bathroom inside.
Petit Bistro is in a quiet area just outside of town.
The waiter was very personable and efficient.
The food was quite good, but those who had lobster ravioli couldn't taste
the lobster because the puttanesca sauce overwhelmed it. Great
This was my second visit this year when visiting Bentonville from Texas. The menu is varied and it isn't easy to make up my mind. Last visit I did Caesar Salad. This trip I did filet mignon. It was cooked to perfection. Our friends opted for smaller meals consisting of appetizers for entrees. They said the crab cakes and seared tuna were both excellent. It was easy to carry on a conversation and we never felt rushed. Their servers always make great recommendations. I definitely recommend a meal here!
