My husband and I visit Eureka Springs once a year for a convention. One year a friend of mine who lives there recommended Autumn Breeze and we have been going on Saturday night every year since then. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is very comfortable, and the service is great. My favorite is the Chocolate Souffle. It is heavenly. My husband and I share one every time. I would recommend this place to anyone. It is a little expensive, but not in comparison to the quality you get for the price.
With all the near great places in Eureka, Autumn Breeze was a breath of fresh air. You get the ambience of an upscale restaurant, with top end food. If your looking for bar-b-q, ham sandwiches, all you can eat buffets, and chicken nuggets for the kiddies, this is not your place. Service was somewhat slow, but hey, thats why we all go to Eureka...to slooow down. I have been going to Eureka for 30 years and this is on my favorites list.
The working side of the restaurant faces the parking lot. There were cleaning supplies in the windowsills which immediately gave me a bad impression and my gut feeling was we should go somewhere else. It showed an immediate lack of attention to detail. After placing our order the table beside us sent their food back, which was another bad sign. I ordered the salmon w/bernaise sauce. The fish was so overcooked as to be inedible, the sauce amounted to less than a teaspoonful. It looked like a smudge of dried out mayo. My husband had the prime rib, medium rare. It looked (and smelled) like a piece of charcoal when it arrived. Sending food back is a losing (and scary) proposition so we tried to make the best of it. What we should have done is left immediately upon seeing our plates. When the waitress noticed that we'd only had a couple of bites she asked how the food was and we told her. She said it did look overcooked BUT we should have told her sooner and she would have fixed it. Since it was obvious even to the waitress that the food was poorly prepared why did the chef send it out that way? Where their glorious reviews come from is beyond me. No reputable chef would prepare something like this. We were there the night of 3/10/07 and our bill was between $70 & $80 with the tip. After we left I was furious with myself for paying for the meal and tipping the waitress on top of it all. At the time I felt it wasn't her fault and she shouldn't be punished, but afterwards I felt she didn't even attempt to do anything in our behalf, which she should have. Also forgot to mention their salad dressing (blue cheese). It was the thinnest, most watered down mess I've ever had. Ok, that's it. Guess you can tell we couldn't have hated it more ..........
We have lived here in the Eureka Area for a number of years. Finally, last evening we went to Autumn Breeze. I wish we had gone sooner. The food was wonderful. Hot things were hot, cold things were cold and the wine was chilled just right. The service was perfect. If you like shrimp, this is the place. Try the coconut beer batter shrimp. We had heard that it was expensive - I don't agree. You get what you pay for! I can hardly wait to go back.
We stoped here to eat late Friday nite as it looked like a nice place. The bread was burned on the bottom. My chicken was to tough to eat. When I conplained I was told I could have a free desert. What I wanted was a meal I could eat not a sweet.
We love Autumn Breeze... we live about 3 hours from Eureka Springs, and frequently decide at 3pm in the afternoon just to jump in the car and head over there just to eat at Autumn Breeze! We go to Eureka to shop several weekends per year, and every time, we say we're going to try some other places, but when we get there, we always end back up at Autumn Breeze - Why change a good thing?
Food is great - Service is always excellent...go after dark so you can enjoy the twinkle lights in the forest.
We ate here for our anniversary. We were seated by a large window overlooking the forest (quite romantic). The food was good and service was exceptional. The only drawback was that they didn't have a vegetarian option on the menu (my wife is vegetarian). The waitress was extremely helpful and the chef created an option for her. This was a wonderful dinner for our anniversary.
We visited Autumn Breeze in July 2005 and had a wonderful experience. The food was incredible and extremely reasonably priced. Will be returning to ES around New Years Eve and plan on returning for dinner again.
