Our visit here was amazing. Great atmosphere with wonderful waiters / waitresses who really new the menu. Great suggestions on food choices given as well. As for the food - wow , just perfect but make sure you leave space for dessert.

Eightysix serves the most beautifully prepared and tasting share plates ever! Simple presentation but complex flavours, great food and wine variety, friendly and professional staff, great atmosphere and topped off with an open kitchen. Best dish we tried was the tortellini, gnocchi, king fish ceviche...More

Great food but even share plates are entree size. You end up paying about $10 per mouth full. After a $300 we left hungry!

The best way to sample eightysix is to sample it. Go all you can eat, and order a bit of everything. This is not a place to do the standard three courses, and the serving sizes are not geared towards it either. Explore the menu,...More
