I have been to this restaurant 3 times and never been disappointed. I usually order the fish which is excellent. I ordered the arctic char which is not one of my favorite fish but it was delicious. The foie gras appetizer was great and the mouse bouche is always great. This is without a doubt one of the best meals... More

Went to Bluestem to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The ambiance is nice, very relaxed, dimmed lights, open chef's kitchen, the service was impeccable, i lost count how many people stopped by to service food, drinks, change plates and silverware etc - but very discretely and respectfully. So service if perfect, but the place is small, and you are cramped, sitting... More

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
