From my Pear Milk Punch cocktail to the very last detail, a tiny square of jellied fruit, this was a perfect meal. We opted for the three course menu, sans wine pairings, and each of us chose different selections. Everything was exceptional. The chef's amuse bouche platter was so fun and memorable! I had the foie gras first course (amazing),... More

First let me say the service was top notch - attentive, but casual and not overdone. The combinations in the 5 course tasting menu were interesting and overall delicious. We were most disappointed in the ribeye - which was tough and not very tasty (it was cooked medium-rare, not sure how it could be so tough). We were also disappointed... More

The award winning Bluestem is one of the city's premiere dining destinations. The bar service is impeccable with a welcoming atmosphere. The menu is 3, 5, or 10 courses with fixed group seating times - check the website and have a reservation. We were seated in the West dining room, - close to the open kitchen - and enjoyed watching... More

I was getting ready to celebrate a milestone birthday and I didn't want a party at all (mostly I wanted to hide in a dark room and cry...), so I asked my husband to take me to dinner at Bluestem. We ordered the 10 Course with Wine Pairing and I still think about it almost daily. What a wonderful way... More

We chose the 5 course tasting menu and one of us had the wine pairings. The wine pairing was very generous but would have been too much for me. The quality of the wine and food was outstanding. Having moved to Arkansas from the UK 8 months ago this has been the best meal out we have had by far!... More

The restaurant has its great reputation . My friend and I tried the 5 course. It was delectable. Great wine and atmosphere for cozy chats with closed friend. Service was great. I missed the city and this restaurant even though the trip was a short reunion.

My husband and I went to bluestem on Friday Sept 16 2016. We were seated near the kitchen, which was a happy surprise because we both enjoyed watching chef Andrew plate the food. I had the watermelon gazpacho, foie gras, seared ahi tuna, pork belly and the semifreddo for my 5 course meal. My husband chose the marinated cucumbers, braised... More

Went for our anniversary and could not have been happier with our choice. Had the 10 course tasting menu with wine pairings. Cocktails to start (disappointed that they did not have Bombay Sapphire...offered Plymouth gin instead which was a nice alternative but they should have the basics...) Service was terrific...all were attentive but not intrusive. Food was all excellent...nothing -... More
