Great wine selection... paired down lunch - fast in and out. ... Dinner is fantastic! Do they still have the chocolate sack? I forgot to look!

Everything about this restaurant was excellent. The food was wonderful, the service was great, and my husband especially loved how you could get really good (and fairly fancy) food but still have a casual, laid-back atmosphere. My husband started with the soup du jour (roasted red pepper bisque) and we both thought it was fun and delicious. I started with... More

I have eaten here many times and truly enjoy the raw oysters and the seafood fondue which is extremely decadent. The bartender is the best in the city and makes amazing drinks. He also has that uncanny ability to recognize all his customers. I love sitting at the bar and just having appetizers. The back patio and the front room... More

We stumbled on this restaurant on our overnight stay in Little Rock. It is off the beaten path in the suburbs of town. The food is great but the chocolate specialty desert is the draw. It is literally a paper bag made of chocolate and filled with fruit, ice cream, almond slivers and whipped cream. Plenty to fill a table... More

First of all, if you are coming to SO to drink, there are two reasons, Wine Spectator and a very special bartender named Veo. The appetizers are delicious and the food is extremely consistent. Veo will fix you a special customized cocktail. The atmosphere is upscale and the crowd is mature. Things get a little more lively after 10 pm.... More

Downtown Little Rock closes down after brunch on Sunday so we were relieved to find So Restaurant in the historic Hillcrest area open for dinner. Located in a small area of shops (which seems to be a common characteristic in this part of town), So was a nice respite from the busy hustle of downtown. Prices are somewhat high, even... More

I found this restaurant on Expedia as a recommendation. We arrived hesitantly and were so very happy. This is a neighborhood gem. A small brick building. The food and service were excellent.

A coworker who lives in Little Rock took us to this place, that she has been wanting to try. I will say it is easy to overlook this place when you are trying to find it. I will give you a tip. It is right next store to Hocotts Garden Center and the restaurant name isn't as predominate as you... More

This place serves a great dinner, but the chocolate sack was an amazing dessert and really fun to share. Our other food was great and you definitely should eat the chicken and dumplings if the chef makes it as the soup of the day. Plate presentations and service were both good.

We used to have a favorite restaurant called Spaules that we used to eat at years ago and I think we just found our new favorite restaurant.From the saumellier recommending a really great Oregon Merlot to the food being out of this world all I can say is it was absolutely phenomenal.
