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

had the 5 course paired/dinner - loved it. However if you expect to party or do something else later forget it.

This is a hard review for me to write. How do you rate a meal when everything is great, except the main course? I settled on 4 stars. The main course should have been 2 1/2, but everything else was a 5. My wife and I had wanted to try this place for ages. We had heard about all the... More

Made a dinner reservation for us last Friday, June 24 at 8:30 PM. The door host was immediately attentive, greeted us with a smile and checked off our name. We arrived about a half-hour early and had a seat at the bar. Although there weren't many patrons waiting for drinks at the bar itself, the bartenders seemed busy & overwhelmed... More

Always great. A must do for travelers. Service is fabulous. Restaurant side is pricey. So we usually eat and drink on the bar side. Menu changes seasonally. Best advice: Order dessert first then you always have room.
