Easter lunch at eighty3 was a very nice experience overall. Even with reservations, there was a wait, but we were offered complimentary mimosas while waiting. All of us enjoyed our meals, but we were surprised that we were not offered dessert, which we were hoping to enjoy.

I like the fact that they have both little items kinda tapas and regular items on the menu. The menu is also rather creative but not scary which appeals to my foodie girlfriend and my non foodie self :-)
I also loved our server, she had my sense of humor...

Eighty3 Rates a Ten!
Dinner before the play at the Orpheum. Super martinis; good overall wine list. Great atmosphere, wonderful food especially appetizers and sides! Waitress Hannah was one of the best servers encountered anywhere!

I had out of town guests from Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, Maryland, Kentucky, Iowa, Wyoming and everyone was very happy with their dinner and service. We were at the Roof top of the Madison Hotel for drinks before dinner which was a delightful experience and view.

What a great Memphis gem! It was very chill but slightly upscale at the same time, which I liked! The service was superb and the food was excellent, especially for the very feasible prices which is not common for many downtown areas. The art and lighting had me sold on ambiance. I don't remember if they played light music or not, that would be a nice touch if they didn't. Overall, my date and I had an awesome time, and will return! YOU MUST TRY THE FRIED OREOS FOR DESSERT, they are absolutely divine!

Very good menu, creative and different from the norm: berry bread pudding, grilled oysters, and a Mac n cheese waffle w pulled pork on top. Service was very friendly. Did have too long of a wait for desert. Wine list was varied and good for mid priced restaurant. Would definitely return.

Hits and misses
Great service and wine list. I had the ceviche which was amazing and huge! I had the jumping beef for my entree-that I won't get again. The beef was mostly fat and there was no seasoning on it. I tried the deep fried oreos for dessert. Wasn't a fan. My friend had the pot roast and she raved about that. They came with fried brussels sprouts but they had no seasoning nor caramelization on them. While it seems like there are a lot of hits and misses on the menu with the great service I'm willing to go back to find the right combination of dishes.

Great Food / Great Service
Dined with three friends. All four of us shared a couple of small plates, four different entrees, wine and dessert. Not one dish was a disappointment! Excellent, knowledgable server as well. I look forward to returning!

I had very high expectations for our dining experience. I found the food to be very good; however, I felt that it didn't quite live up to the price. For the price we paid, I expected exceptional, and it wasn't. I'm not sorry we went, but we probably won't go back.

Saturday Night Group Dinner
The service was excellent. Alex was our server and she did an amazing job. This was by far the best portion of our experience. The food came out timely, was beautifully presented and good. There were several dishes we all enjoyed very much and a couple we weren't so crazy about. Overall, we will certainly be back. It was a good experience and as a large group party (and friends who don't see each other often) we enjoyed the size and volume of the restaurant because we could really talk!

This relatively small setting
This relatively small setting in a botique hotel has been renovated to appear less formal and has an ambiance that somehow blends a hotel coffee shop with a destination restaurant for downtown, a somewhat odd but largely successfully mix. The menu is physically underwhelming, but the server was knowledgeable and helpful, and the food was well above average. The wine list is adequate. The experience overall was positive, if the setting much less of a "class act" than in the past.

The best dining experience I've had in quite some time. The battered fried bacon strips are a must!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The hostess was very welcoming and made us feel at home. Although they didn't have a kids menu, they we're very accommodating to our 8 & 5 yr olds. Our waiter was phenomenal and gave us fantastic service. The dates, waffle with mac & cheese and the trout were delish! Next time we visit Memphis, we will most definitely eat here again. I will recommend to everyone!!

We had dinner dinner for our 8th anniversary at eighty3. Our server Paul was excellent There was a beautiful flower arrangement of white roses waiting at the table as requested and Paul wished us a Happy anniversary as soon as we were seated. The food was some of best we've had. I would definitely recommend the the Ahi Tuna Appetizer and the Filet. We highly suggest giving eighty3 a try

Unique dishes that are well prepared. Great wine list. Excellent service. Nice central location to the downtown attractions. Will go back again.

Great food, poor seating experience
I made a reservation for 7:00PM at the restaurant. I showed up, and the hostess said it would be 10 minutes to be seated even though I had the reservation. I saw there were two open tables. Since I was in a hurry, I chose to eat at the bar. I had the Beef Short Rib Pot Roast, and it was fantastic. The horseradish mash potatoes and fried brussel sprouts really put it over the top. I will give the restaurant a second change in the future due to the food, but I hope the seating situation improves.

We go to quite a few restaurants
We go to quite a few restaurants throughout the year in Memphis, but somehow we've missed this one. We shared the 'sharables' and enjoyed all of them. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd say it was a tie between with their grilled oysters and the burrata cheese plate.

Great food and great service.
Great food and great service. We had spent the past several days chomping down BBQ and burgers on Beale Street and wanted a quiet place with great food and wine. We found it with this restaurant. Very small, wouldn't recommend large groups. Our server was very helpful and pleasant.

We dined in the restaurant twice during our stay at the Madison Hotel. We really did enjoy!

Good food/great server
A group of 5 went to dinner and the food was varied and good. Our server suggested things to get and things not to get. We all had something different and each was satisfied. One warning; don't try to eat a whole dessert by yourself. I had the Blueberry Bread pudding and 3 people could share this. It was excellent.

Great night out
Great dinner and beautiful views from the top of the Madison with receipt from dinner. Perfect place for a night out with friends or a romantic night out.

Best Steak in Memphis
The Bone-in Filet is the best steak in town. Not overseasoned and is always cooked to the right temp. Greenbeans are very good as was the sea bass my wife had. The fish was light and fluffy like you get while on vacation in CA.

Service was wonderful. We were seated immediately. The food was exactly as described and tasted perfect. WE will definately return.

PERFECT evening! Will return to try the items that we didn't fit into our first visit.
Chef and Manager visited each table - phenomenal service...Will definitely recommend!!

We had the strip which was fantastic. The macaroni and cheese was to die for. We did have to sit in the middle row of table away from the walls. I always find that awkward. In the future I will request that we sit against a wall.

Food and service were great! I would definitely go back!

Overall good . . . dessert rocked!!
I had the chicken wings, very crispy and a good sauce, could have used more heat for me. Shrimp and grits, too much sauce and the grits (grit cakes) were tasty but too chewy. Lastly, the dessert ROCKED!!!! I had the creme brulee, not only was it a unique presentation but the overall flavor was fantastic. It is my favorite dessert and I have had a lot of it over the years. This was in the top five best.
