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!

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.
