Busy restaurant, attentive wait staff. I had the best Au Jus Prime Rib sandwich in my life. I'll be back.

This was our first visit and we went with friends to try it out. The place was very busy, Friday night around 6, but by 730 it was thinned out considerably. The staff was very efficient and helpful. In place of bread, housemade kettle chips with garlic dip is placed at the table. This item was one of the best... More

We dined here for Restaurant Week 2017. Upon arrival, this place was packed! We were a little early, so we sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine and a cocktail. The cocktail was sent back immediately. It tasted like dirty dish water. As it turns out, I believe the regular bartender was out and a waiter was... More

First time visiting and no one in our party was disappointed. It started off with fresh house made potato chips and a delish dipping sauce. Everyone at the table got different dishes ranging from steak to fried chicken to a beef rigatoni dish. Everything was better than I could of expected including the wait staff. It was a wonderful night... More

Our group used KC Restaurant Week as an excuse to try a new place. LOVED it!! The menu was agreeable to the large party's different dietary needs and tastes. Everything from the steak, to chicken fried chicken, to rigatoni, to steak tacos was amazing. Even a normal house salad seemed higher grade than most places. The portions were almost more... More

Date night with my husband landed us in Brookside (Kansas City) and a wonderful little surprise - a great restaurant! The atmosphere is casual elegance. It has an urban ambience while still maintaining a neighborhood feel. Each table receives homemade potato chips that are thin and delightfully crispy, and they are served with a homemade dipping sauce. Then the waiter... More

Good food, maybe not great, but maybe I just wasn't hungry. My husband loved the fish and chips. Both of us liked the home made potato chips

Nice experience, food was good but nothing special but consistent. Outdoor tables were a mess. Should do a better job of cleaning that up for patio customers.

Happened to be in town and caught the Mother's Day brunch... it was great! The food was plentiful and very high quality for a brunch ( smoked salmon, ham, shrimp, too!) and the place warm, buzzing a clearly a hot spot for the Country Club Plaza set!
