Dining at the Arkansas Arts Center


Canvas Restaurant is undergoing an ownership transition and will be temporarily closed for walk-in lunch service effective August 31. Please stay tuned!

Located in the breathtaking Arkansas Arts Center and number two on InArkansas' list of restaurants with a unique view, Canvas, formerly Best Impressions Restaurant, has panoramic views of landscaped lawns and blooming flowers. The restaurant offers an opportunity to enjoy delicious culinary works while taking in great works of art.

Canvas creates unique American Fusion dishes served in a fine dining relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant offers an Al a Carte menu of soup, salads, sandwiches, hot entrees, daily specials and homemade desserts at moderate prices. Begin your tour of the galleries, impress a client, forget work or catch up with an old friend in a relaxing atmosphere. A private dining room is available for large gatherings or special occasions.

"The menu is littered with ingredients using local products like Kent Walker Cheese, War Eagle Mills, Grass Roots CoOp, along with a number of local veggies. The approach should keep the menu fresh and interesting... it [is] a destination spot for lunch, brunch, and special events." –  Greg Henderson, Rock City Eats
