Showed up for Happy hour at 5pm and nobody there (even staff lol). Greeted shortly though and the experience went fairly well. Fish tacos were the best (flavorful) I have had in a while and LOADED. Well worth the price. Loaded Tots and mini slider trio were in the Happy Hour menu and were good as well.
Overall good, with great presentation, but some quirks are here. Garlic mashed potatoes instead of rice with the panang curry and seafood? No thank you. The pork shank was good but a little fatty. Vegetables were delicious. Roasted chicken tasty and still moist. I thought it strange that the waiter hasn't eaten any of the food because he thinks it too expensive.
A wonderful anniversary dinner. We were seated promptly at 7 pm, and our server, Elysia, was terrific. The missus had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken and the beef tips small plate. She proclaimed the salad the best ever; the chicken was abundant and grilled perfectly. I had a Caesar salad and the pork osso bucco. The pork was fall off the bone tender and the accompanying red wine reduction was very tasty. We split a creme Brule for desert - yummy. It's a little pricy, but worth it. Highly recommended.
Oh my gosh! Dinner was sooo good! We started with the beets and goat cheese. I am not a fan of beets but this was yummy. Sorry, it was finished before I thought to take a photo! 😂 I had the Friday Seafood Trio and it was amazing! A nice sized, delicious lobster, 3 jumbo meaty scallops and 2 jumbo shrimp. It was accompanied by tasty fingerling potatoes and perfectly cooked green beans. I could not finish it all. My husband had the flank steak chimichurri and loved it! He could not stop raving about it. Not only were these meals delicious but the presentation was divine. 😋 Service was perfect...there when you need them, but not annoyingly present. Head chef Brian rounded on all the tables, which is a nice touch.. We will definitely return!
88 Keys is located on the ground floor of the Wyvern hotel. Parking is a little tricky. There's parking in the back for hotel guests and there is a lot across the street on the north west side of the building, however that lot is generally pretty full. 88 Keys is to the left of the hotel lobby and is a lounge and restaurant. The lounge area has a modern atmosphere and the bartender was personable. We had a martini and the mushroom and goat cheese bruschetta. The olives in the martini were stuffed with a creamy homemade blue cheese, yum! The bruschetta had plenty of tasty mushrooms with a bit of mushroom gravy which was tasty but made the bread soggy. Overall, it was a good experience and we will most likely return for dinner.
