  • "My wife and I have gone to Aixois Brasserie on a number of occasions (birthday, dinner before the symphony, holiday, etc.) and each time we walk away, we always feel like we've had one of the best dates in a long time. We attribute that to the attentive and knowledgeable staff, the remarkable (and remarkably dependable) menu offerings and fun/relaxing ambient music playing over the sound system. The food is always so well prepared and perfectly seasoned. The portion sizes are just right. And the bar... the cocktail constructions are just superb. We just loved the rosemary infused/muddled libation that had a scent and captivating aroma that stayed with us throughout the night. Now, we are always looking for excuses to revisit the A.B."

  • "Our group stuck with the small plate options. Outstanding small plates, both choices and the result. The Escargot Bourgogne was delicious while the Shrimp & Avocado Salad, Grilled Shrimp and Smoked Salmon were all outstanding. Not one negative comment from the group. Asked for extra bread just so we could sop up the delicious sauces! We eyed other entrees as they walked by, all looked great and we will be back to try some."

  • "We were warmly greeted by the host. Chose the Prix Fixe menu and both the steak and salmon were delicious and perfectly prepared, the frites were some of the best I ever had. The dessert crepe was not so great but the homemade ice cream was very good. Next time we will be more adventurous."

  • "Classy, approachable place where you can try food you may have never attempted. Servers are helpful."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was delicious and visually appealing. We tried the $30 fixed price menu and enjoyed the house salad, our choice of salmon which was tender and moist, and a chocolate crepe. We were congratulating ourselves on eating healthily . . . and then we ate the decadent dessert: a warm crepe served with a creamy filling, resting on a bed of and covered with melted chocolate. Yummy and worth every calorie."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This place was amazing. You instantly feel transported to a restaurant in Paris. The food was awesome, I had the pre-fix which included the soup of the day (duck and sausage with rice), steak frites with vegetables, and a crepe for dessert. The table also had the duck wontons for an appetizer which was also so good. The restaurant had a nice little selection of wine and a few beers on tap - I had Boulevard's Chocolate Ale. It was a very relaxed up-scale place good for chatting quietly with your table. I would say though if you have problems seeing in low light do not go here for dinner because they keep the lights low for the ambience. If you haven't been you need to go ASAP."

  • "Nice medium priced restaurant. Enjoy the big, street side windows in this smaller French Bistro. Small menu and smaller portions, but pretty good food."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "It has a nice location and it is nice onthe inside. We went at 9 on a Saturday and it was not busy at, I guess that is why they are using Groupon. Not extremely expensive but average over $20 a plate. It is annoying to pay that when you see the portion size."

  • "I LOVE this place!! I live out of town, but always gravitate when I am in KC. Food is outstanding and the service over the top."

  • "My first time at the downtown Aixios and chose to dine there before attending a show at The Folly theatre. It was a good choice. I enjoyed the salmon with some Cótes du Rhone wine. It was delicious. There were many other great entrees that I wanted to try that I will order on my next visit. Service was very good."

  • "Our office is nearby& we had gone here frequently.I ordered the Turkey Royal (standard order) and asked for no aioli which has mayo and garlic - two ingredients I can't eat. The waitress said, "no, we have new rules." our sandwiches ($12.95) are premade and no substitutions. I can't eat dairy or garlic so ordered sandwich, took off everything with the garlic mixture on it.I did ask the waitress if I could have some plain tomatoes and she said she would have to charge me extra. I ordered a diet coke which came in a cup (no longer the bottles.)She asked if I would like another one.I didn't realize that I was now going to be spending $5 on two glasses of sodas. $12.95 for premade? really? what happened to fresh?"
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "I ordered the chicken with capers. The first time I came here summer 2013 it was so Great I've been thinking about it ever since and couldn't wait to get back. This time was just ok. We went before a show at 5:30 do there was hardly anyone was in the resturaunt yet we were still seated in a back corner. The chicken just seemed very thin and not enough flavor. The "salad" that came with the meal was literally just greens. For as much as we paid I was just underwhelmed. I won't have this as a favorite resturaunt and occasion place anymore."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We know Aixois well in Crestwood and while the food is always good, the noise level can be difficult. At the Brasserie on a Friday night at 6:00, it was not full but busy enough. And quiet! So lovely. The food and service were terrific and it was a great pre-concert venue."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "At $30, this is a deal as you get a soup/salad, main course, and dessert. The venue is very French and the soundtrack is very cool. The French Martini is a good choice as well."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "Great night. Although they were running 20 minutes behind, the bartender was social and helpful, making the wait enjoyable. Service was great and food was good. Great place for a date night or special occasion."

  • "Service was good. We where about the only people in the place. Food was good."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "New Year's Eve was our first visit to Aixios, and we loved it. The food was great (especially the mussels!) and the service was, too. Not sure if it was just due to it being new year's, but there was retro dance music playing all night and quite frankly that made it even more fun. We love places that while they take their food seriously, don't take themselves seriously, and any place that plays ABBA while i'm enjoying my escargot is my idea of a great place. We look forward to coming back again soon!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "My wife, my son & myself had no plans on new years eve, this was one of the few restaurants that had a 7pm opening. We were greeted and seated promptly, Our waiter was a true professional. He was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, we had escargot & mussels as apps both were great. For entrees my wife had the salmon, crispy skin,; my son had the lamb, another great dish; I had the Campo Lindo chicken, great dish My wife & I were amazed by the level of service, after our entrees, the hostess noticed that we were finished and came & cleared the plates, we are both in the service industry and have seen the decline in service over the years, its nice to see that there are still those with that much attention to detail!! BRAVO"

  • "We went there for NYE dinner. Server was rude when asked if we could substitute fries for mashed potatoes. She cut me off in the middle of my question and said "NO absolutely not". From there our dining experience went down hill. Asked for medium well filet, came out well done. Would not go back."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The atmosphere is very friendly, and the server we had was great! The menu is very limited and expensive for what you get. The Beef Bourguignon for $24 was really beef stew, and should have been priced no more than $12. I think that is the problem I have with the restaurant, they overprice and under deliver on the presentation, and quality of the meal. I wish they would address this issue, because the staff, and the atmosphere and setting, is great!"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We have always enjoyed our meals at Aixois in the past. However, on a recent weekend evening that was not the case. Our waiter was abrupt and most unfriendly. We waited over an hour to receive our meal. The noise level in the room prevented normal conversation. The food was very good but the overall experience was not satisfactory and we likely will not return."

  • "The younger and cooler sister to the long established restaurant in Crestwood. A couple blocks from the Power and Light District. Delicious. I had the chicken pillard and my dining companion had the salmon. Both were prepared to perfection. Highly recommend."

  • "Overall our party of 4 enjoyed our meals, the wine, and our server. This is our 2nd time to this location and they didn't disappoint. We arrived later than planned after attending a downtown program than ran late, but no problem getting a table. We stayed well past closing and our server never pushed us to leave, which we appreciate. Wine selections are limited but the 4 wines we each had were all very good. The roasted duck special was excellent, as was the chicken pasta dish. The hanger steak, though encouraged by the server, was over cooked, tough and less than enjoyable, flavor good however. The accompanying French fries were just fries. We will return but will pass on the hanger steak, as no one in town seems to do it well."

  • "I enjoyed the mussels in white wine sauce and a salmon burger. There was a great bargain on a crisp white Spanish wine that was a great opener. Everyone in our group of six enjoyed their selections, and the desserts were delicious as well. The service was excellent and enthusiastic."
