A word from Aixois French Restaurant & Coffee Bar
This award winning casual French Bistro is located in charming Brookside on the picturesque trolley trail. Chef Emmanuel, originally from Aix-en-Provence, brings his simple Southern French homestyle cooking to Kansas City. If a bistro could stake its claim on one dish, Aixois" would be the Ruby Red Trout meuniere. The romantic spot is also home to the city's most delicious and authentic pommes frites! Voted Best French Restaurant in KC 2010!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "This is a pleasure every time we go. The wine list is not huge, but it is very good (even the inexpensive meritages), and the ambience is the closest I've seen in the midwest to the sort of small cafe you would find in any city in central France. The serving staff were pleasant and accommodating and the mussels in Roquefort sauce are WONDERFUL. Actually, just the sauce and a baguette would be a wonderful (though not low calorie) meal."

  • "There were 3 of us, celebrating a big Birthday! It was a very relaxed evening and the food was really good. They were very busy, a little slow on waiting on us, but very nice. we really had a good time."

  • "I went with my daughter on a Thursday for lunch. The hostess said she didn't see our reservation for noon, but before things went sour she smiled and said she saw it so it was a little joke like a late April fools but I laughed. The waitress arrived quickly with the supervisor who said he would be working with her (apparently in training). The French bread and butter was excellent. My daughter liked the escargot and mushrooms in olive oil. I had hanger steak with fries and my daughter had sautéed chicken breast with fries. The steak was tender but the seasoning was a bit bland for my taste. My daughter liked the chicken breast and fries. Service was fine; there were 2 waitresses in our seating area and one was really moving the trays."

  • "I loved to experience! Everything was great! We brought a bottle of wine to celebrate our 15th anniversary, the corkage fee was only $15. Mike had the French Onion Soup and I had the Escargo for starters. They were prepared perfectly! For our entrees we both had the filet mignon. They were prepared perfectly and were melt in your mouth! Our server was attentive but let us have our space. I would definately recommend Aixois for any occasion."

  • "Being French, I was not expecting too much from Aixois. However, I was craving for French food, brunch...and I decided that a month after moving in Kansas City, i should give it a try...and I was not disappointed. The menu was typical French brunch, as I would prepare for my friends or family. The taste was classic and the presentation of the plate were simple as a it should be for a traditional French casual Sunday Brunch. I was very happy to have a well-made Mimosa, and cafe-au-lait....from the beginning to the end, food, staff and pricing were perfect. I will definitely go back often"

  • "I am a regular at Aixois for lunch, and took my husband for our date night dinner. My food was fantastic, but the service was some of the worst I've experienced. Our server took 15 minutes to simply come get our drink order, even though she passed by our table a dozen or so times. She never checked on us and only filled my tea once, well after our meals had arrived and I had to flag her down to ask. When our food arrived, she dropped it off at our table and disappeared, not giving us the opportunity to ask for anything. I would estimate that she spent 2 minutes at our table for the entire visit, mostly while she was taking our orders. Thank heavens for fantastic food and an excellent busser, or this place would have received a single star."

  • "We had a 6:30 p.m. reservation on a Friday night. When we arrived the restaurant was mostly full and very loud. Our table for two was inches from an occupied table of four. It was so loud it was impossible to carry on a conversation at a normal level. Thankfully, the food was incredible! We started with escargot, which was delicious. For entrees we had the chicken crepes and filet - both were excellent. The coffee cake and creme brûlée were delicious dessert options. While the food was excellent, I wouldn't recommend Friday night dining unless you're looking for a "Happy Hour" environment. We might try again during the week to see if the atmosphere is more quiet and relaxing."

  • "I had heard about Aixois from several people. After looking at the website, I decided to take my girlfriend there on what I had hoped to be a very nice date. From the menu list on the website and the recommendations I had received, I was expecting a fairly nice dining experience. I made reservations for 6:30pm. We arrived at approximately 6:26pm and were told they had our reservations and it would be a few minutes, strike one. Once we got seated it was several minutes before we ever saw our waitress, strike two. When the busboy came around to our table to refill glasses, he proceeded to reach across me in between my girlfriend and I, strike three. I felt for the price I was paying the service could have been far better."

  • "Arrived and was pleasantly greeted. Hostess said they were short on menus although restaurant was less than half full. After we were seated, it took 10 minutes before we got water and the server never came by. In the meantime 5 other tables were seated. We could easily see that the service that evening was not going to be good so we left. We had a great dinner for our birthday celebration somewhere else. Maybe we will try again another time."

  • "We typically love this restaurant but we're beginning to wonder. Once again, it turned out that they were out of the entrée two people ordered. This was not one of the specials for that night, it was an item that was on the regular dinner menu. This has happened before to us there and it's becoming an annoying practice. The guest should not have to clarify if the menu items are available -- it's the waiters responsibility to tell you that upfront, before you set your mind and taste buds on something. And the restaurant should know if they can supply an item properly, take it off the menu and offer it as a special if not. To top the evening off, the same problem came up over dessert. When it came time to order, it too was not available."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We had not been to Aixois for several months. The food and service were very good. The taste and presentation of the meal were excellent and the service was very good, but not too much. I would definetely recommend this restaurant for a good meal with a relaxed atmosphere in a nice location with convenient parking."

  • "One of my favorite places, any time of day. Great early morning coffee, tea, pastries, and small plate breakfast. Creative lunch and dinner, too. The mood of the place changes with the time of day. A real community asset. Such friendly staff. A goal is to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner there all in one day."

  • "I finally got to take my husband to this little gem. It has been my girls lunch and dinner spot for awhile. My husband quickly sunk into his seat with a big smile on his face when an excellent bottle of wine, recommended by our server, arrived at our table. His happiness continued through the escargot... to the steak tartare... to the main course... and then dessert and a late harvest wine. He, of course, echoed my thoughts... we must come back!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Wait person was very attentive. Main courses (hanger steak and frogs legs) were quite late coming out of the kitchen (about 30 minutes late by rough reckoning) but were good when they finally got to us. Noise level (between 6:15 and 7:30) was likely influenced by neighborhood St. Patrick's Day parties and the usual Saturday night get-togethers."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our food at Aixois and had excellent service. We were having a lunch meeting and our waitress was very attentive but very respectful of the work we were trying to do. However, the good food did not go unnoticed!"

  • "The menu is small but great, but the best part is the $2.00 coffee to go from the self serve, honor system. Out two bucks in the milk can and grab a cup of java to go. Great place on a warm morning to enjoy your beverage al fresco too."

  • "We had a group of 6 there for my wife's birthday because it's her favorite French restaurant in/around Kansas City. My wife is French, so we're not exactly easy to please when it comes to "French" food here in the states. The food here is 2nd to none, though. The do a fantastic job. Had a great time, as we always do. Can't wait to go back again!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "From the moment we got there, the hostess was a bit vengeful... asking if we had reservations with a tone that radiated that she was going to take pleasure in denying us a table. She did not ask for my name to register us in the reservation system - merely showed us to a table without another word. Wow ! ... Not feelin the love in this place !! We were looking forward to a pleasant dining experience with reminders of a special time in France. -not with this staff !!! ... Our waitress bristled with a similar contempt for us. While the service was adequate, the attitude of the waitress had to be consistently overlooked. The food was good - not excellent - good. Overall, service was adequate but not nice."

  • "The chicken pot pie should have been called pea pot pie. There were 4 of us for lunch and 3 had the pot pie. My friends that had the pot pie actually counted the chicken pieces and the one that had the most - had 3. They were VERY disappointed. I ordered the steak and fries and it was wonderful as usual. They have a big future in this location but the soft drink size (too small even for fine dining) and running out of the daily quiche frequently makes people think twice about coming back. The lunch crowd only has an hour to get in and out and the choices need to mirror that time line. The bread is always good as are the deserts."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was good, but I feel like I can get the same thing if not better for half the price at other places. Also we had to wait 25 minutes, even though we had a reservation."

  • "We love this restaurant - food is superb and we always look forward to indulging ourselves!"

  • "Food was okay. We had the lamb and it was a bit overcooked. I had requested to be seated by the window but that apparently didn't work out. The charcuterie was very good. The profiteroles are average to nothing special in my opinion. It's a nice bistro. I wish the food had been a little tastier. I had the scallops and they were good, but not excellent."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Aixois is a neighborhood gem. We loved the food and the server and the atmosphere is fun and inviting. We had a reservation and were forgotten by the hostess who said "I forgot about you but can seat you anyway" then took another 20 minutes to seat us after walking past us without an acknowledgement. Luckily we go over it due to our great waitress and the spectacular food. I was our first time here since moving from out of state, and we will return, but not if the hostess is on shift. She was rude and inattentive and made us feel stupid."

  • "They were out of the cod special, so we ordered the ruby trout - which is always a favorite, and also the chicken. Had the chocolate crepe for dessert - awesome!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The trout and pork chops that my husband and I ordered were delicious! Excellently prepared. We were seated near the bar and near a cold window. So there was no ambiance for our date night and it took away from the experience. Our waiter was taking car of us and spent most of the time talking to a gentleman at the bar. Our beverages were not kept refilled and my husband would have loved more, but we couldn't catch the waiters attention. We'll go back for the food though, and will ask to be seated towards the back, away from the windows and bar."
