Theo's Fayetteville Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for a special occasion. Quiet, intimate atmosphere that enabled easy private conversation. The staff was helpful and considerate. They have a better wine selection than most restaurants around if you buy by the bottle. Wonderful location- I would love to come back when the weather is nice and sit on the patio. The trout was amazing- a great mixture of flavors.
The food was well-cooked, but both of our dishes were horribly over-seasoned. My husband, who is a self-confessed salt addict, found the duck confit to be too salty. My trout was severely over-peppered. We did not send the dishes back, but did make a comment to the server. She promptly sent the manager over who offered us dessert on the house, which was much appreciated. Our appetizers were fantastic and the cocktails were delicious. As one of the better restaurants in Fayetteville, we were just surprised that they couldn't deliver better entrees.
Theo's WAS my go to favorite restaurant every since they opened. When someone asked me where I wanted to go it, it was always Theo's. Not now. My date and I went there last night for my birthday Monday night 12-12-16 at 7:30pm and something has sure happened there since a year ago. I have ALWAYS finished every delicious bite of my filet....but last night it was chewy and lacked flavor and every item on mine and my dates plate was not even warm, cold mashed potatoes, cold asparagus. The potatoes were flavorless, completely unlike they were a year ago. My dates steak was cold and chewy as well and he got the rib eye. It was so bad that I got my free birthday dessert to go and we brought the steaks home for my dog and cat to eat. I have never been so disappointed in a meal that I WAS SO looking forward to. And I have recommended them for years to everyone that I ever spoke to about a place to have a steak in NWA. Also, the bar area has changed. There used to be comfy sofas and chairs to lounge on. Now there are little ottomans that you must perch on like a child. I don't know if they have changed owners or management or what? Perhaps they pulled their good chefs to the Rogers location? I just know it was NOT good. EPIC FAIL! A chain steak house would have been a better choice I am sorry to say.
We have eaten at Theo's on many occasions and have always had a wonderful experience--until this past Friday. The atmosphere that we cherish was not-to-be as an event at the WAC was on the same night. It was crowded, very noisy, and the serving seemed rushed compared to our former experiences. The experience was "good," which is insufficient for a $200 dinner for two. We will plan future visits to contrast with town events.
Every aspect of our experience at Theo's was exceptional. Every staff member was friendly, professional and helpful. And the food was marvelous. We started with the crab toast was delicious and well-prepared. My husband had the pork chop; it was tender and juicy, with flavor all the way through. I had the filet, which was perfectly grilled to medium, juicy and tender. Our side of mushrooms finished it off. We each had a red wine -- both delicious. And for dessert we enjoyed paw paw ice cream and creme brulee. The chef and staff at Theo's made for a very memorable evening, and we will certainly return!
Have been here twice, both for my birthday dinner. Loved it both times! The Pork shoulder appetizer is by far my favorite. I think I will just order two for my entree next time it was so delicious :) You get a great amount of food considering how nice of a restaurant this is, which my husband really appreciates since he doesn't like to pay a lot for a little.
It was the first time I had dined at Theo's. I was there with 3 of my friends; a first time for all of us. The restaurant was not all that crowded, but it was sooooooo loud. It was very difficult to even have a conversation. I ordered the pork chop, and our server told us that it would be 25-30 minutes. That wasn't a problem at all because we were there for fellowship, conversation, and a good meal. But with the noise level preventing easy conversation, that 25-30 minutes was long. When our food did arrive, it was not hot, but rather warm. Very, very frustrating considering the prices. When you're paying premium prices (which I don't mind for a great meal), I want my food hot when it comes out. I probably will not return to Theo's, except possibly for happy hour, because there are better places to go.
My wife's double-cut pork chop was pretty good. A little dry around the outside, but pretty good overall. Our server was friendly. The crème brulee was good, as was the lavender honey ice cream. But...my duck was raw, and then must have waited a bit for my wife's pork chop, and so my whole plate was cold. It was really, really bad. I should have sent it back, but I don't usually do that. I was surprised the server didn't ask anything specifically about it, given the size of the remainder, other than "Are you still enjoying your dish, or may I take your plate?" Hmm. To his credit, the host stopped by later to ask how everything was. I let him know the duck was undercooked and my plate was cold. He apologized and said "Let me take care of these desserts and wine for you." I was ready to forgive and forget at that point. Except then he credited for the desserts but not for any of the wine. So, $10 free against a $36 entrée that was terrible. One last point: I thought the music was weird, too, although not especially loud or distracting. But I think it was 70's rock? Seem to be lots of options in town. I'd probably look elsewhere--or order safe options on this menu.
We are from Houston and our son enrolled at the University. Theo's was a great fine. The drinks and food were outstanding and we really enjoyed Joshua as a waiter--great suggestions and an overall excellent experience. Will go back every time we visit our son.
Theo's isn't a bad restraunt, but the food and ambiance are not commensurate with a $150 dinner for 2 with drinks. The lack of dresscode in NWA ensures that every male in the place is clad in a polo and board shorts, which is fine for casual dining but I don't feel you can justify calling yourself "upscale". Also, the website clearly states the valet parking is complementary. It is $3. Not a huge amount of money compared to the meal, but it is rather annoying.
I recently to my wife to Theo's for her birthday dinner. It was our first time to try the restaurant. We went into the bar area first for drinks and an appetizer. They have $5 specials on both, which is a good deal by today's standards. The duck confit appetizer was fabulous, and the martinis were "honest". Then we moved to the dining room, where both the food and service were excellent. My wife had the pork chop, which was delicious and very generous in size. I had the pasta with filet bites - it was good, but not up to the level of her pork chop.
We will most definitely patronize this restaurant - it was quite possibly the best dining experience that we have enjoyed in our four years living here in Northwest Arkansas.
