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.

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 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!

 (Denver)·Dined on December 9, 2017

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.

Found this restaurant on Yelp. I didn't know it was a Kirkwood College culinary school restaurant until after I made the reservation. So glad we didn't cancel. Beautiful restaurant, excellent food,
and student staff who shared their education goals and were knowledgeable about the offerings. Tour of classrooms was also offered. Nice dinner before attending a downtown event. Will return, great experience. Suggestions-1. keep up with the menu changes on line. 2. Better signage along road and in parking lot. We are from out of town and were unfamiliar with area.

We had exceptional service from Lynze and Baylee helped too. The food was wonderful - so many interesting combinations of flavor and texture. The ambiance was truly classy - from linens in vibrant red and contrasting white undershirts, Lovely cracked glass windows and yet eclectic furniture the space was truly classy. The food, decor and most of all the service lives up to this well named eatery.
I also observed beside me a table of four who arrived and as soon as they sat down their pre ordered food was placed on front of them. I’ve NEVER seen that sort of amazing service at a restaurant before. They were clearly either staying at the hotel or were part of a meeting and only had a short time for lunch. I came from OH for a special occasion a year ago and returned to treat the same lovely lady to lunch yesterday. Highly recommend.

A group of 9 of us met here for dinner during a college reunion. We were given a private room which was very quiet and allowed for lots of conversation. Our server was very attentive, knew the menu and took excellent care of us. The food was varied and everyone found something that they wanted to eat. I would call it an upscale restaurant both in terms of the menu, the ambience, the tablesetting, and the price. We all would highly recommend this restaurant. The only small comments that people had was that there are steaks were not sizzling hot but merely warm. However, all of the other features of the restaurant overshadowed that point.
