Happened upon this gem of Bentonville on Tuesday night. The owners (chef and house manager) have created a modern, hip atmosphere with unique delicacies. For tapas lovers, this is your place. Don’t miss it! It’s the one place we will definitely return. Our favorite restaurant...of the week. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about wines and liquors. Excellent, attentive service. 5 Stars all around!More

The service was perfect. The owner stopped by a few times to chat. The 3 tapas and a few glasses of wine WERE our dinner, which was 5 star. Thank you for being open (socially distanced, of course) during these tough times. Yours is the...only restaurant we have eaten in (inside) since March. We are from NC and thoroughly enjoyed it. And yes, it is pricey. Just go with someone who's picking up the tab.More

Bar Cleeta is an amazing collaboration of small plate fine dining and incredible cocktails. You really can't go wrong with any of their incredible plates. I had an amazing portion of octopus last night which I would highly recommend. If you are in the mood...for a great cocktail the bar will not disappoint. The old fashions are some of the best I have ever had across the country. If you are looking for a fun date night, with a really cool atmosphere and great people, this is the perfect place to escape!More

Don’t let the bistro atmosphere and limited tapas menu keep you away. Bar Cleeta is a sophisticated foodie’s dream. I loved it so much that I ate here two nights in a row. And when I am back in NWA this is where I plan...to wine and dine.More

If you're a foodie, this is a must! Creative cooking at its finest. I wouldn't have dreamed of pairing fried oysters with peach bacon jam and sunflower shoots, but it was fantastic. I could have tried everything on the menu if we didn't already have...dinner reservations elsewhere (and afterwards I'd wished we had stayed at Bar Cleeta for dinner!) The space is so fun - dazzling with its open, airy feel, chic wine bar and interesting proprietors. It is pricey, especially if you plan on eating a full meal and having wine, but this is a such a unique venue that it's worth it, even if you just get an appetizer and glass of wine. Cheers!More

Appetizers at full plate prices. Don't get me wrong, the food is amazing, but I need a meal to follow an appetizer, and they don't serve them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our early evening visit to Bar Cleeta. A chic wine bar and tapas spot right off the Bentonville square. Maggie was a fantastic server. She recommended great wines to pair with the two items we ordered. The Charcuterie board and a cheese...board. Both were generous as well as fresh and creative. The wines were perfectly paired and served. They have a nice menu of plates if you are interested in dinner. The decor was very clean and upscale. The charcuterie is house made and cheeses were some of the best we’ve ever tasted. The vibe was cool but not loud or unfriendly.More

The food and service here are incredible. We had cheese and olives to start. After, we had the 6 day wagyu brisket, Arkansas Tomato’s, Summer squash and the chocolate mousse. Everything was good. We will be back.
