Eighty Eight @ The Elms
Great Mother's Day BrunchWe knew we were going right into the hustle and bustle of a special Mother's Day Brunch but couldn't resist the wonderful menu offered at Eighty Eight @ The Elms. When we got there is was very busy but not overly crowded so you knew they were doing a great job keeping up with the people who came to eat. (We went at noon, right in the middle of the 10-2 menu and had reservations). Our receptionist took us up to the 2nd story where all became very quiet and few people where there in a cozy atmosphere. We had a wonderful peaceful setting. It was great to get our food amongst many patrons and then to retreat to our quiet setting. Thanks Eighty Eight!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceI was very impressed with the service. The staffs recommendations were spot on. The food was also top notch. I had the KC strip with asparagus. My wife had the buffalo chicken wrap with seasoned fries. Both delicious. We would definatley return to eat here the next time we stay at the ELMS!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food and Service!Had dinner at Eighty Eight as part of our stay. Had a romantic table on the second floor. The atmosphere was great, the service and food were outstanding! We plan on making our getaway to the Elms Hotel an annual event!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA well crafted mealA well crafted meal. We started with the beet salad and the scallops then the rib eye steak and the chicken breast. Not your average chicken breast. The meat melted in my mouth-flavorful and so tender. The ribeye at medium rare was cooked to perfection. Finished with the strawberry rubarb cobbler. Not an overflow of food. I doubt you'll take home a doggie bag, but we left sated and very pleased.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our dinner very much.Enjoyed our dinner very much.

No doubt, we will dined there again in the future.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service, expertly mixedGreat service, expertly mixed cocktails, and delicious food!
We were hoping for a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary, but also wanted to catch the KU game toward the end of our meal, so the hostess sat us at a cozy table in the bar area so we could enjoy each other's company while keeping an eye on the score. The bartender took great care of us, made excellent recommendations as we ordered and even mixed up a tasty dessert cocktail upon request. We'll definitely be back again!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood news! An excellent restaurantGood news! An excellent restaurant whether in Excelsior Springs or anywhere in the world. Bad news! It's in Excelsior Springs. Too far off the beaten path to visit again soon. But a great dining experience. I had a perfect steak and my wife had delicious fish. The beet salad was a huge surprise with the warm cheese curds. Great dinner ambiance. Well exceeded my expectations for presentation, taste and service.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
