    One of the best dining experiences in KC! Great date spot. The back patio is a must. (Even during the winter.) Awesome view of the plaza. Great ambience.

    Providing refreshing relief from the heat, encouraging diners to feast on small plates (like cracker thin pizza and crab cakes), or full entrees, such as a Berkshire pork chop or veal osso buco

    Small cocktail list, so teach them what you want and they'll make it. Great desserts and small plates. Sometimes live music. Back patio is nice but fills quickly.

    Love it! The atmosphere is modern yet pays homage to the old fashioned. Signature cocktails are delicious, chèvre salad is amazing & my guilty pleasure is the mushroom ravioli. You can't go wrong!

    Stick with the basics here. Like grilled fish or pastas. I have been disappointed recently in their specials. Great martini and fun friendly service

    The short ribs were AMAZING! Meat was so juicy and tender and literally fell off the bone. Had it with a side of the Mac Daddy.. Best meal ever!

    Check out the "Red Ribbon" Martini. House infused strawberry vodka, Pama Liquor, Lemon Juice & Simple Syrup & finished w/ Cream Soda. Benefits AIDSWALK KC & so $5 of the $8 price goes there.

    Quiche of the moment was a super good choice. Asparagus, spinach and some kind of delicious cheese. Bacon vinaigrette is a good touch for salad dressing.

    Dinner portions are big. You can ask them to split one entree to two plates. They even do that for their martinis. Try more items!

    Everything seems to be good here. The back deck is a great place to sit if you are in the mood for the outdoors.

    Very creative... chef challenges your taste buds in a good way... Needs more Sonoma wines! Found serendipitously on Gay Cities

    They have a large selection of Gluten-free items, many of which are adaptations of their delicious original entrees!

    The vegetarian menu isn't part of the regular menu. Make sure to ask for it. They've got some great options.

    Some kind of kitchen emergency this evening. Regardless, the osso bucco was excellent.

    Ask for the patio. The atmosphere is quiet, friendly and the lugging is great, even in the winter!

    The Jimi Hendrix is hands down the best summer cocktail I've ever had. And I don't even like gin... that's how good it is.

    There were literally no vegetarian dishes here, unless you count the small hummus plate (which was just okay). Lots of seafood dishes that seemed promising but were overall pretty underwhelming.

    We ordered Mac daddy, fried oyster, burger, and crab cake during restaurant week. Honestly, felt the food is mediocre, nothing special taste okay not fantastic, I probably wouldn't go back again.
