                                                    Still confusion over VIP card. We were told on our previous visit that we would reach 1000 points on our next visit. Last night we were told we only had 167 points on the VIP card. I called this AM, and the manager stated that the card had to be ran as a gift card to get the $100. He said the waitress didn't understand that fact. We had turned over and were starting on the next 1000 points.

                                                    Booked a reservation with my mom and my sisters for Sunday brunch. Service was AMAZING. Prices were high, which I do not mind paying for quality food, but I felt my food was mediocre for the pricing. I did appreciate the ambiance. I probably wouldn’t revisit.

                                                    Everything was fabulous! Crab croquettes, scallops, and mushroom bolognese were to die for. The Old Fashions were also a must try for bourbon lovers.

                                                    The restaurant was excellent is most all respects although if you have a problem with stairs not so easy to access. The ambience is wonderful quite and not at all an "open space" Our seating was somewhat private easy conversation. The food was especially good only negative I found was the entree I ordered the Filet Oscar did not have any jumbo crab or if there was it was so small as to not be noticable . The filet itself was prepare correctly and was very good. Our appetizers were excellent as was the salad and the other entrees we had key lime pie and bread pudding also excellent. The wines we ordered were pricy but good. The server was especially agreeable pleasant and knowledgable service was as you would expect for a restaurant in this price level. Expensive but we knew that going in and we felt the expeience was worth the cost. We will return.

                                                    Food was great, service was exceptional. My only complaint would be the music, which was a bit loud and new age for it being such a nice restaurant.

                                                    We loved our experience overall. My four rating was mostly because of desserts. Felt that they sat too long. Bread pudding was cold and rock solid. Service overall was professional. So, my service rating was mostly due to little things such as having to ask twice for requests and slow to change out silverware. It’s a beautiful place to have a great meal, and we are so thankful we chose 8Eleven to be a part of our graduation memory.

                                                    Excellent service and good food. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but worth it if you are treating a soon to be graduate from wonderful Purdue.

                                                    Great service and atmosphere. The coffee was excellent but the omelet was tasteless. I was stunned by the cost. Way too expensive, in my opinion.

                                                    This was our 5th time at 8Eleven, The food the past 4 times was amazing. However, the service has always been horrible. This time the food was not very good and the service was has it has always been. We were seated for 20 minutes before we were approached by the server. It took 2 hours for dinner we had 1 appetizer for the table. The braised beef was a lot of fat - very little meat. We have given this place enough "tries" - there are better restaurants in West Lafayette and Lafayette to visit.

                                                    Our first time for my birthday. It was a bit overwhelming. Menu was not very detailed in what all came with what, regarding the main dishes. I was not very happy the wines were not listed dry to sweet. Our poor waitress. She tried to help but was very honest, she wasn’t a wine drinker. Went with their Margarita. It was delish! The spinach and pommes purée (mash potatoes) def grab! Start off with Ceab croquettes, only down size is you get like 5 and it’s a teaser!!!

                                                    A bit pricey but fine dining is worth the price. A good alternative to chain restaurants which seem to pop up everywhere in this town.

                                                    The restaurant seems short of staff. The food were good but we had to wait for a very long time to get a server.

                                                    Food was excellent and presentation very appealing. We ordered starter, salads, entrees, wine, coffee & dessert. I had received an email prior to our visit for 10% off with instructions to show to server to redeem. Our server was noticeably irritated when I showed her the email on my phone. Other than that, everything was outstanding. The Easter flower arrangement on the table was wilted..could have been swapped for one on an empty table.

                                                    We decided to try this restaurant for Easter lunch. Mixed review. Positives: beautiful relaxing ambiance not very noisy. Food was very tasty. However the service was very slow and the portions were tiny for the price. We all left feeling hungry and that almost never happens. We often eat at nicer restaurants so we know kind of what to expect but this missed the mark somehow.

                                                    My husband had a drink spilled on him, broken glass on table. It was an accident by waitress, no big deal but they didn’t even give him the remade drink for free. And my son ordered burger medium, it was rare. They had to make him a new one they said, so he got it when we were finished eating. I felt that with both those issues, they should have offered us the burger or the drink free. I didn’t ask for it, usually with such a big issue, it is just offered at other higher end restaurants.

                                                    Loud - nothing to absorb noise. Could hear everything, the clank of dishes when a table is being cleared, the glass shattering on the floor and the chatter of everyone throughout the restaurant was deafening. Could barely keep a conversation going with my spouse. Food was not good and way overpriced for what you got. Was really disappointed. The waitress and service was great. We won't be back. WalkOns downstairs is so much better - food is tasty, good selection.

                                                    WITH Reservations 15 min to get server 30 min for two appetizers that were chilled and plate ready. No cooking, only plating the app. One good...one disappointing. Next Wagyu burgers for $20...w fries. Ordered med rare...of course. Served med well. Dry and similar to a burger you might expect from a bad night at a poorly run chain restaurant. All of the menu features high margin foods (flat iron as an add on to a salad for 10), which is fine if it delivers.

                                                  40. D
