Taken here during a business trip to Fort Smith. Great service with a knowledgeable waiter. Melt in your mouth steak with burgundy glaze. All you need. Reasonably priced wine. Good atmosphere with a reasonable crowd in for a Wednesday night.

We had an excellent dinner at this favorite restaurant in Fort Smith. The service was impeccable, the restaurant was very busy with most tables in use, but no wait. Their drinks are perfect and the menu allows for small or half orders of most items....More

Trendy cool place with nice decor and great jazz music that allowed conversation. A bit pricey, especially the steaks. Seemed to be priced more like a very large city which Fort Smith is not. The wait staff was completely unable to answer questions about the...More

It's a nice restaurant, but not pretentious. Casual - dressy is usually the way I go. I don't think reservations are required, but they can be busy, so it definitely wouldn't hurt to make a reservation. Hope this helps.

I'm certain there is a wine list. There is a magnificent martini bar. When we eat there, we see everything from jeans to semi formal. On holiday season nights, dress seems dressy. Id say work street clothes are the norm.
