    Always good service. Good service can sometimes make up for bad food but that is not the case with 501. Wonderful food and service. I brought a person from Houston and she was impressed with both service and food quality. 501 best in Hot Springs and I eat out everyday.

    Please don’t bother. The food was mediocre, we were rushed through ordering, there was a police officer on guard (why??), the server asked if we’d like the “usual crab” on top of the spinach artichoke dip without mentioning that was an $18 dollar add-on to a $13 appetizer which is absolutely comical as it was terrible spinach artichoke dip. We are normally easy going as we eat out 3-4 times a week, but 501 Prime was a complete disappointment. We are from Chicago so maybe our expectations were too high based on that.

    Our table of five enjoyed great food and equally great service. The NY Strip special was the bomb, as was the Boursin filet on a bed of polenta. Our server was Michael. He was pleasant and attentive, and he made some great suggestions for those of us who were undecided. Overall, it was an excellent meal, and we will definitely be back before long. I gave the restaurant only four stars for ambience because the upstairs dining area was freezing. The AC was working too well, if that’s possible in July.

    Even though our waiter Joe was fairly new to 501, his great customer service over came anything he was not yet familiar with. The food was outstanding, from the oysters (we had Oysters two ways and I even made my own Oyster Shooter with a shot of Grey Goose) to the steaks (perfectly cooked medium rare.) Even the Reservationist and Greeter were so wonderful, they made as if we had been coming there forever. Celebrating our joint 75th birthdays, we have traveled the world and eaten at some of the best.....501 Prime is on the one of the Best list.

    One of the best meals I've had in many years. Ceviche was phenomenal and the truffle polenta was a beautiful addition to my filet which was cooked to a tee. Excellent service. I would recommend 501 Prime to anyone visiting the Hot Springs area.

    I took the family out to celebrate one of my daughter's birthdays. The service and food were outstanding. I used a gift certificate for part of the payment that was unknowingly expired. The cashier honored the GC, my daughter received a complimentary birthday dessert, and the evening was magnificent!

    Not recommended for a single woman dining alone. There was ample open seating and I was seated at the very end of the bar in all of the bar and kitchen traffic. Took a while for a menu to be brought to me as well. If I had wanted to just have a drink, I would have gone to the upstairs bar, not the restaurant area. Oysters were sub-par, not the quality or size I'm used to. The filet was perfectly cooked and good, but overall not as good as expected for this type of establishment.

    For the price, I expect better. Steak was very fatty. Potato was luke warm. No bread available. Timing was rushed. All food was on the table at the same time. Service was lackluster. Hostess was lovely, but it was downhill from there. For a $200 meal, I was disappointed.

    Initially disappointed to have been seated upstairs at the bar/restaurant (the a/c was super cold and the laid back bar/tv/casual setting was not what we had in mind), out request to move downstairs was honored. We were thrilled with the accommodation, the service, the wine and food, and our terrific server, Cory. We enjoyed everything about our experience.

    My wife and I shared our dinner as we usually do. We had a dozen oysters on the half shell ( gulf coast) . They were medium size and very tasty. They were opened properly and had much of the brine still in the shell which is more than half the flavor of oysters. Then 1/2 dozen oyster Rockefeller and they were cooked to perfection. just the right amount of spinach and parmesan cheese, butter etc. It is very seldom you order oyster Rockefeller that you can taste the individual ingredients as yours did. And then the New York Strip was cooked to perfection ( medium rare). The wines suggested by Bernie were perfect fit to our meal and we enjoyed Bernie's knowledge of the products and his service. We live in Longview, Texas only 3 or 4 hours away and may come back just to eat with you again. Tom and Wendy Sweeney PS. when the weather drops below 100 + lol
