Sunday brunch outside at the Clinton Library was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday. Sun was shining, wait staff was delightful, and food delicious.

We really enjoyed the setting but I thought my sweet potato hash was bland, and the proportions of food for dishes at the table were not consistent. Additionally, our server was initially very attentive and seemed to take Covid precautions seriously, but he eventually stopped coming to the table replenishing drinks, etc.

Our meal was delicious at Restaurant 42! My husband had the lamb and I had the blue cheese steak salad. We had bread pudding for dessert. The service and patio dining was wonderful!!! It was so good to go back and see their friendly staff. They are practicing social distancing, asking you questions, and taking your temperature before you dine. We are looking forward to going back soon!

It was wonderful to be back there, even if the only option is currently outdoors on the patio. There was a nice breeze off the Arkansas River.

We had a dinner with friends before the ASO River Rhapsody Chamber Concert in the Library’s Great Hall. They served a special menu but still offered multiple different delicious options. The service was excellent and we were at the concert easily in time. Will definitely do this again.

Just love the salmon and pasta dish. The jalapeño cornbread and yeast rolls are awesome. The views of the Arkansas River bridge lit at night are inspiring. We have eaten at all the trendy new restaurants in Little Rock, but Forty Two is our hands down favorite. There is a nice cozy feeling perfect for date night. Do not miss.

Really lovely location. Love the view. Wine list is special. Nice to have the set menu option. Main dishes were excellent. Dessert was especially delicious. The management and staff all seemed super professional and attentive. It felt ‘safe’ to talk here - in this climate - like being among friends.

Sunday's brunch was the best meal that I've ever had there. A year ago Valentine's Day was the first time I'd ever had dinner there. I've been back many times since, mainly for lunch. The brunch at 42 spoiled me. If I ever want brunch, 42 is where I'm headed!

Took my family to celebrate an event. My mother loved it! She had never been (the rest of us had only been to brunch) and had a lovely time. Good combination of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options which is great because some of us are vegetarian. Staff was lovely. They had our table ready as soon as we walked in. We will totally be back.

Amazing food and excellent service. My wife and I love the great selection of wines by the glass and the food is always wonderful. Try the chicken pot pie for a wholesome, delicious, walk down comfort food lane. My wife’s favorite is the ahi tuna salad.

Dwayne was an exceptional and attentive server and Chef Andre Poirot’s delicious, creative menu did not disappoint. The filet with lump crab was tender and well-seasoned and the salmon entree was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend 42 for any occasion.

Food and Service very nice. We consider it to be a fairly upscale restaurant. Your managers’ attire detracts from that ambience. Pot belly with suspenders holding up too small pants over a slightly soiled open collar white shirt just does not look right and detracts from enjoyment.

Usually good but on this occasion, I ordered the soup of the day and it was not hot and not even warm.

Ordered the Poboy, which I have not ordered before and it was very marginal and the fries were cold as well.
