Excellent place to have a nice evening. Great food, great service. The party room was a little noisy next to us but what do you do?
All of our expectations were far surpassed. The service was prompt and courteous. The food was amazing. It was our anniversary, and to make the evening special our deserts were on the house. We left feeling very special - just what we had in mind for a very special occasion.
This was a reservation for supper for prom and 4 pm was what was available to still attend prom and have a dinner reservation so we took that time frame. No one stated that Because we arrived fifteen minutes early, we were required to have breakfast. Rather than telling us that or having us wait, we were seated, and provided brunch/ breakfast which was rather shocking. Being high schoolers we did not complain yet it was somewhat disappointing. The food was excellent. However, it was Certainly not the experience my parents had signed us up for or what we were expecting. We both wish we could have had this meal again about 5 am when we had caught our fourth or fifth wind after everything including the after prom party and did not want to go to sleep or feel tired!! Excellent everything; we just expected supper with a supper reservation that’s all! The food and service was fantastic as was the environment. This environment was perfect for my gorgeous date who was a knock out in her black dress with silver glitzy heels and a beautiful smile that lights up a room when she enters it. She is a great friend to have and I’d highly recommend taking your friends to Class Act too!
The food was good but would have expected higher grade for a Mothers Day weekend. (Steaks, fish choices, baked potato), so disappointed on that level. VERY disappointed in your parking situation. Mom and I are both on canes, I dropped mom off at the door and then I had to walk from the opposite end of the parking lot furthest from the door. You should have free valet parking offered. Your obviously set up for the young, due to parking and walking distance to restaurant. The pricing however is set up for the older crowd, which is okay. I will not recommend this restaurant because most of my friends are older and you are just not set up for that particular crowd. Too bad, because the older crowd is the crowd with the funds to afford what you offer. I would still offer steaks, ribs, fish, baked potato + for more options. The brunch thing after 1PM is not a good plan. Food did tasted good so kudos to the chef and our service was good so kudos to her as well.
One of the best meals we have had in Iowa!!
if you are in need a special meal go here. especially recommend the monthly Passport dinners.
Excellent food and friendly staff. Variety of items on menu.
Excellent food, good drinks menu, and nice environment. We’ll be back!
Food and service were excellent. Everyone in our group loved their food. Dessert was excellent as well!
The service was slow. The server did not smile or seem engaged with the guests. It took at least 15 minutes before we were able to order. We were in a private room and for a while I thought maybe the server was not going to return to our room. She did not refill water glasses when they were full. She did not offer to tell us the specials or soup of the day before prompted. She asked us if we wanted dessert before all guests were completed with their meal. She brought out the check before all guests completed their meal and before asked for the check. It was a formal lunch hosting 2 high-ranking visitors from China and I was disappointed with the service which is normally above standard. This was clearly below from the examples I just shared.
The food was of very good quality and everyone enjoyed the food they ordered. No complaints on food quality.
We decided to have breakfast on Sunday morning. The food, as always was excellent but the service was below standards. Our waitress gave us the impression she had better things to do than her job.
Wonderful concept to do passport theme meals around the globe! Creative and delicious, the class act never disappoints!
Excellent Food and Excellent Service and the Atmosphere was perfect!
We stopped by The Class Act on our way home from a trip to Minneapolis. The Class Act has an advantage for us over a lot of Cedar Rapids restaurants in that it is open 7 days a week, and it happens to be close to our home. We had not been in awhile, and we had the impression that the service and food have stepped up a notch. Service was wonderful — it is a learning experience for the servers, so one has to take that into account. The menu was not huge, but was ambitious, and every well executed. Wine list is very interesting and varied. Well worth a visit!
Delicious! Cocktails were excellent, the amuse bouche was delightful, every dish that was served was impeccable: the filet mignon, the scallops & the salmon. Absolutely worth going out of your way for.
Great food for restaurant week!!!
Great atmosphere. We had a private area for our get-together. Great service. Food may have taken a little longer than expected, but it was worth it. Friendly staff. We would do it again. And would highly recommend brunch.
They have a monthly country-themed Fixed-price menu that is always interesting.
The students have become the masters!
The food was amazing and server was attentive, knowledgeable, and personable!
We were extremely happy with the whole experience!
My husband and I enjoyed an excellent meal at the Class Act. It is like a hidden gem. We only live 20 minutes away and will come back often.
We had a small family 'reunion' in the restaurant and it was perfect for conversation. The food was excellent, the menu interesting, and the service was extraordinary.
The student made amuse bouche was AMAZING. I could have eaten a whole plate!
We've been fortunate enough to dine in many upscale restaurants. We rank the Class Act Restaurant as a hidden gem, with superior service, and delicious menu items. Our complete dining experience was outstanding, at cost-wise, a half-to-third of what we'd pay in a large city. We'll be back soon, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this restaurant!
I have never had a poor meal or service at the restaurant ,Hotel Kirkwood ,and the Banquet Facility's. All are top notch , as a matter of fact we book all of our meetings there also.
Kirkwood's Class Act Restaurant has always felt elegant but friendly for an afternoon gathering or a romantic dinner. The service is excellent and the menu although small has great variety.
The prices are good given the service and ambiance.
Our Valentine's dinner was exceptional. My wife had the quail and I had the ribeye, both done to perfection. Our server was very attentive, polite and professional. He was at our table often enough, but too often to be bothersome. I can't wait to go back.
The service was flawless and the food was both tasty and different
Terrific food and service. Totally excellent drinks, beer and wine. We had a group of eight in a semi-private section and we could talk normally and still be heard. Decor is modern but comfortable with lighting that was warm and inviting. All dinners came with a small appetizer and dessert. Menu was small but with a nice variety of appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. Many items are made from local (Iowa) sources. Very nice dining experience. We will definitely be back.
The food was great and the atmosphere even better. We plan to make it a regular date night.
Delicious food, great atmosphere. Really enjoyable experience. Pricey, but i think it was worth it.
Really good food and a great atmosphere. Service is always top quality. We always enjoy a visit to Class Act. Look forward to our next visit.
I have been here several times for work and conferences and I have always had a great experience! The food is consistently good and the menu is simple.
The food was beautiful in regards to presentation and taste. Cooked to perfection. Chef Goodman is an artist. The server, Josh, was informative, attentive and enjoyable. Very impressed with The Class Act.
The fire cracker shrimp were too spicy. The main dish too fatty and the desert takes store bought.
we truly appreciated the staff who worked on Christmas Eve. Our experience was perfect. Molly, our server, was the best. The charred eggplant soup was the best soup i have EVER tasted!
The food was excellent and the service was as well. We had a great Christmas eve celebration at the restaurant.
We were nothing short of ecstatic about the quality of service, the food and ambience of the place! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, exquisite place for a proper dinner.
A gem of a fine dining restaurant whose food outmatches the inconsistent service.
The food was delicious! The duck was exquisite; my compliments to th chef. It was beautifully plated! The server was helpful and provided the right amount of attention. The wine list had a generous amount of selections. Though I didn't order dessert, the complimentary taste was much appreciated. I'll be back!
Food was great. We had a butchers block to start. It was a little big for two people but the meats, cheeses, and spreads were very good. I had a seasonal salmon dish that was delicious. My boyfriend had seasonal lamb, which was not as good but still tasty and quality meat.
Service was a bit slow. The food was always timely but the waitress didn’t check on us much and took a long time to take our order. We also had to ask for water twice and wait about 20 minutes before finally getting some.
Generally a nice place for a special occasion or if you are staying at the hotel.
