Eighty Eight @ The Elms
Dinner was wonderful. Steak was cooked to order and the service was excellent! Highly recommend!
The food is always excellent, the staff is friendly and efficient and it’s a great experience dining at 88at the Elms.
Ate here 3 times during our stay.
Staff was rude and unprepared, server knowledge and hospitality lacking.
Proteins were over cooked, vegetables were cold on both entrees
Exceedingly long cook times.
Ambiance, server and food were all fabulous! My wife deserves the best. No that is what we got, we will definitely be back for more date nights.
Food was not great. Lobster bisque was so gross! Consistency of chipotle queso with a tiny bit of crab which was on top. Steak was raw on inside (asked for medium). For such a pretty place and overpriced food, they really need a new chef and revamp of their menu.
Very friendly service. Food was very good. Atmosphere was comfortable and inviting.
I will never go to this restaurant again when staying at The Elms. The waitress was pushy and hurried us through our dining experience. The food was not good for the value. WAY over priced for non gourmet food.
wE HAD NO LIGHT TO EAT BY OR TO LOOK AT THE MENU. THE FOOD IS WAY OVER RATED.
The dining room was pretty and our server was very friendly. She recognized it was my daughter's birthday without being told, and surprised her by giving her a piece of cake. The menu offered items we wanted, but I have an allergy to garlic and found it odd that the eggs benedict and the biscuits and gravy and the Hot Brown all were prepared with garlic. I settled on an omelet that was tasty, but the potatoes had a heavy seasoning on them that I was afraid to eat. My daughter had the eggs benedict and said the hollandaise sauce was off-putting. Her English muffins were not toasted and were soggy (probably due to not draining the eggs). The poached eggs had hard cooked yolks which is a big no no for Eggs Benedict. She disliked all of it. We had no beverages, and these two items were $31.00 before our tip. Odd that this type of a fine dining restaurant could not prepare items that are this easy. We both cook them in our home kitchen without any issues. We stayed at the Elms and did not return for dinner or breakfast the next day. The food here was our only disappointment.
The food was average and pricey. The atmosphere is nice by the fireplace. They didn’t have gluten free bread and that was a disappointment.
2nd time eating at 88. First time was very good, and this time exceeded. Had Surf and Turf. Fillet was cooked to perfection and Shrimp was seasoned exquisitely. Our server was attentive, without ever being overbearing! Because of our special occasion we were given complimentary glasses of champagne and a wonderful dessert! Great atmosphere. I highly recommend.
We at there for our anniversary and had great food and a wonderful time!
We had the Salmon and ribeye both were cooked to perfection and delish! We sat out side which was peaceful except foe the loud banging service door out a soft pad on it to stop the banging
Overcooked, overpriced steaks. $125 for 2 adults and you can make better food at home.
Food was great, place was really nice. Bread arrived after the salad, pepper that was requested twice arrived at the end of the salad, but we got a fre dessert for our anniversary. Server was nice, but overall, it was just okay. Had th server been more attentive, and on the ball, and things happened a little more quickly (even the filling of water glasses took forever), the this would have been way more enjoyable. I expected more for this type of resort and spa. Not wroth the expense in my opinion. Better off at JJ's on the Plaza or something similar.
Good food, great service and beautiful venue make this a place worth going back to.
We had a good meal. The steak was the star of the show. Tender and flavorful.
Quality of food and service was great! Menu is limited in options but covered a bit of everything.
Had drink at bar before dinner. The mixed drink was poor and the bartender was unfriendly. One of our party had pasta dish which was very bland. One had pork dish which was dry, overcooked and fatty. One had lobster bisque soup which was ok.
Our anniversary….gave us complimentary desserts! So nice! Hard a very nice waiter. We went on a Tuesday…not too many people. Atmospheric! This is a grand old hotel….they should market it more for the KC travelers that want a quick fab getaway!
Wonderful food!!! Everything tasted delicious, steak was huge and cooked perfectly and the brussels sprouts were to die for. It’s very pricey but I would definitely recommend for special occasion or a great date!
Solid restaurant. We have salmon and ribeye and both were cooked to our liking. I had the spinach salad and noticed it came with bleu cheese instead of gorgonzola and the pecans were not candied. Finished with the molten lava cake and it was spot on.
Danielle was fantastic. Superb food, generous portions.
Very good food. I had the ribeye. My husband had the pork shoulder. Both were perfectly cooked. We had a nice bottle of wine. For dessert orange almond cake with ice cream. Cake was perfect, not too sweet. The service was very good. Good value.
food and service was very good. complimentary cake for our anniversary was great
Very tasty food with efficient and polite service. I don't enjoy atmospheres with TV screens but did not find the noise level of them to detract from the experience.
It’s a nice dinner but the the menu is limited now, probably because of Covid-19. We had dessert and it was huge-several scoops of ice cream we a big brownie an Kauluha poured over it and chocolate syrup. Really good but be sure to share it with someone or two.
It took 2 hours on to receive our food and the restaurant was not busy. The food came out dry and wilted as it had rested under heat lamps for far too long.
Everything was just mediocre. Guess we just expected more.
For the cost of food since the pandemic it was good. Menu choices were small. Our steaks were very good. Meal was not hot but eatable. As far as overall was good but warm food is not good
Service was ok. They did not have an item on the menu I wanted, but my second choice was good.
The food at the 88 can hardly be called food. It is a delicious artist creation that looks heavenly and tastes even better. The Halibut and short ribs with blueberry sauce was divine. Thanks for this amazing experience.
Very friendly. Polite. Awesome food. Definitely will be going back.
Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner. Our server (Ash) was a pro. He gets 5-stars +++.
Eighty Eight @ The Elms was outstanding! Would recommend to anyone. The food was delicious!
From appetizer to dessert we were very impressed with the portions and quality of the food. Service was great and loved the charm of the restaurant.
We hadn't been to the 88 in yrs, but we're considering making it a yearly trip. The wine, food and service was excellent. We also walked along the trails with fragrant flora at sunset. Very nice start for our anniversary date. We're already talking about staying to enjoy the spas next year.
New chef so menu was slim with choices but food was great. Parking during previously scheduled wedding events was difficult. We will return
Selection of menu items for dinner was inadequate. Service was good.
