    We had a special girlfriend lunch for christmas time. Our food was delicious ...quiche and the extraordinary hamburger and out of this world so worth it fries. The restaurant is just the right size ...full...but not large. Our service was attentive, well paced and very warm and friendly.

    The greeter/waitress at the door was not friendly and we felt she had some issues she brought to work and we decided to ask for someone else to help us. It could just be her demeanor ,however we did not feel welcomed until we had another waitress. We enjoyed a nice meal and a reasonably priced wine and will not let this keep us away from a return visit.

    On a Sat evening at 6:30 the place was busy. Service was sporadic, she took care of us by asking if we were doing ok, then walked away before we had a chance to answer! Burger and pizza, good, salad and hangar steak excellent! Lemon cake, priceless!

    Just moved here after 12yrs in Europe - this took me right back! Had beet salad, which was nice but the duck was superb! Husband had risotto with scallops - also supurb! Old world charm - very romantic place- the bar looked like a nice place for a glass of wine - would have liked manager to at least say hello or ask after us, instead of silently walking through room - but loved it and cannot wait to go back

    We went for a quiet, romantic dinner on a weeknight. We were graciously greeted and were given a choice of tables. Our drink orders were taken immediately and came promptly. Salads were very good and fresh, with appropriate serving sizes. But what really stood out were our entrees. We both had the scallops with risotto. The touch of jalapeno in the risotto was fabulous. If it was acceptable to lick our plates, we would have! The lemon cake was also a winner. We really like Cafe Europa and will definitely come back.

    Dinner was good. Small menu but very good and fresh. Had the beet salad which was perfect and the scallops with jalpeno rissotto which was also amazing. My husband had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly. Quaint, quiet restaurant.

    Food highlights included the pan roasted scallops and the lemon cake desert. Everything else was average. Service was okay - our server met our needs but was extremely curt. It felt like this was her last shift before a day off from a busy weekend, and she didn't care to be there. The other servers seemed warm and attentive. We've been waiting to try this place for a while, but can't say that we'll be going back except perhaps to grab some lemon cake to go.

    Wonderful meal. Satisfying in every respect. Excellent spot near the Kansas City Plaza without the noise and the crowds. Appropriately named "Cafe Europa," it's a European gem with both American and Continental flavors. And they pour a good drink!

    My wife and I have made Cafe Europa our "go to" place for everything from a romantic anniversary to those nights you just don't feel like cooking yourself. It is always delicious, friendly, and welcoming. I take visiting scholars there often to show that KC has local class and you don't need to give your money to a Plaza national chain.

    We are always treated very well here....it is why we keep going back! The food is always prepared well and does include some very inventive dishes from time to time. We would hope that the dinner entree choices could be slightly expanded at some point with one or two additional offerings.

    I brought a group of six women for dinner and they were very complimentary. Everything was good, but the biggest raves were for the trout. One of the party grew up in a family-run supper club and she commented that the trout was possibly the best she'd ever tasted. (And we have spent many years on the planet so far :-)!)

    We had a nice window table that provided ample room for 4. The cocktails and wine were delicious and all our menu choices were well prepared. The beet salad is worth particular mention with just the right mix of salt and sweet. Also, the scallops with risotto was a hearty, tasty dish. While we didn't see any chocolate on the dessert menu, the lemon cake was just what a lemon cake should taste like.

    Lovely atmosphere & the service was very attentive. Generous beets & amazing goat cheese in beet & goat cheese salad and the risotto (without scallops) was seasoned beautifully. The duck dish was flavorful, nicely balanced, and cooked perfectly. Nicely done pepperoni pizza. The burger was a bit thick but tasty paired with giant, perfectly crunchy fries. Good, affordable wine list - overall highly recommended.

    A picturesque little restaurant with nice ambience. But I'm not sure when I've seen such a limited menu. Very little to choose from. And they were already out of one of the dessserts by the time we ordered it, even though we dined early (6:30 pm dinner reservations). Service was just ok. I am unlikely to return unless the menu were to be expanded.
