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.
The food was delicious and our waiter was fantastic. Very professional and we received little surprises throughout the evening...my favorite being a little rum creme brule mini dessert.
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.
Awesome service and delicious food!! Definitely going to be one of our favorite date night spots.
Great food and ambience. Staff very attentive. Food wonderfully presented
We absolutely love our experience at the Class Act, every single time we come there. The presentation is amazing. The food is delicious. Our server, Eli, who has served us several times, is extra attentive, extremely polite, and always there when we need him. I love love love your restaurant
It’s time there , it was top notch.
Food was devious. We go back again.
The food was FANTASTIC and the service was great! My family certainly enjoyed the ambience of The Class Act and will return.
Excellent service, great meal and was very happy with the quiet table location allowing us to discuss business in private. My go to place for business related meetings!
Love the Class Act and will continue to come back again and again. The food is always interesting and beautifully prepared and served. Service is attentive.
This was our second time here. The service was very good, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was quiet and welcoming. The menu had a combination of traditional plates with small creative twists. We highly recommend this place.
