our first experience at 8eleven, but we'll be back for more. Our waiter was terrific and experienced, their drink pour was liberal, compared with other restaurants. The menu was sufficiently varied and the food was very good. Coming from the gold coast in Chicago we set our expectations a bit low for all Lafayette restaurants, but 8eleven could hold their own against most in Chicago.

The acoustics are the best. It was difficult to hear what my companion was saying because of a boisterous group of ladies, 2, close to the door.

Great dinner celebrating my wife's birthday. Service was perfect, attentive when required but gave us our privacy. Entrees Diver Scallops and Wild Mushroom Bolognese were outstanding. Highly recommend 8Eleven especially for any special occasion.

We’ve been to 8 Eleven several times for dinner. Never disappointed. One of maybe three more elegant places to dine. Food and service is a cut above, but with midwestern warmth you don’t often find in a big city.

A little overpriced for the amount of food you get, but it was served as fancy plating, so that kinda negated it. Food was delicious and the atmosphere was really nice. Definitely a bit more of a fine dining experience.

It was our first time there. I was surprised by the ambience. The food was amazing and our server, aaron, was just perfect. He was there when we needed him, but not overbearing. The handcrafted cocktails are amazing! We will definitely be going back.

It’s great to have a new higher-end restaurant in town to celebrate special occasions! The 8 eleven did not disappoint. I did feel that the menu was pretty limited and it was a bit pricey for lunch ($15-25 per entree) but we went to celebrate an anniversary knowing it would be expensive, and it was outstanding. The appetizer crab cakes were incredible, and presentation was amazing.

BRAVO! This restaurant is yet another crown jewel for the Purdue campus at West Lafayette. I am so proud of everything about this venue. The historical lime arches, the stained glass windows and the original wood panels have been preserved in the most tasteful way for this eminent five-star restaurant. The warm leather, and the soft aroma of it, combined with contemporary fixtures and dropped curved wooden ceiling beams modernized this space in such a wonderful way while keeping the character of rich history. The ambiance at the adjacent Boiler Up bar matched the awe we felt at 8Eleven.

And the FOOD!
The feature this night was Steak Oscar with the most tender, center-cut filet cooked to perfection, the freshest crab in generous portion and house made creamy hollandaise served on tender, not stringy, asparagus. All 4 of us who ordered this agreed we have never had better!

Our server, Aaron, was an attentive consummate professional who catered to our every need and left us wanting for nothing.

There is no better place to create a special memory, as we were doing for my son's 21st birthday.

The renovations were worth the wait! I told my husband I am glad we got to experience it now because when the word gets out, we'll be hard pressed to ever get a table again.

Worth every penny!

We went to 8eleven with high hopes. We were disappointed. The menu is fairly limited. We thought the appetizer steak tar tar was below average but the crab croquettes were very good. The main courses were at best average. My Wagyu steak was not cooked correctly and was so salty I could barely eat it. Thank heavens for steak sauce! The remaining main courses at our table were described as “nothing special.” The dessert and coffee were amazing. The main course was not worth going for but we go back for dessert!

First timer for 8Eleven on a Monday evening. Decor and ambiance are the most contemporary and elegant in the area. Not quite what you would expect inside the Union. The service and food were incredible. Best in town in my humble opinion.
