Diner Reviews
  • "Great place, cool atmosphere, and good food. The Power & Light District is a very hip place with plenty to offer. Drink prices are a little high - what restaurants aren't though!"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Arrived with reservations, sat for 20 minutes with water, offered appetizer by the host, still no wait staff, finally someone came, took our drink order, disappeared for 15 more minutes, had to grab another server to ask for help who then got the host who got the server (after we had watched her serve other patrons and bus tables) who then came back with a lame apology and brought the wrong drink which came after the appetizer so we had no drink with that. Then brought a salad that had dressing on it when no dressing was requested. Manager tried to make up for it by comping the appetizer but the experience was already sad. When I asked for a drink to come with my dinner, she thought that was the name of my drink "with my dinner" Weird."

  • "We were looking a place to grab a steak, and saw this on open table tried it and found a "gem". Food was fantastic!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "The entrance is a little confusing as there is more than one way to enter, but do not let that stop you as the hostess will greet you at whatever door you enter with a smile and very welcoming personality. The rest is plain and simple from that point on, great food and over the top service."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was good. This would be great place except anything with an open patio to KC Live is horribly noisy and not very intimate. With basketball tournament being in town as well, the crowd was a little out of control. Felt more like a college bar than a restaurant."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Excellent food and service. The salmon will melt in your mouth. The steaks were absolutely flavorful and cooked to perfection. There is something for everyone - burgers, steak, seafood, pasta. The waitress, Grace, made our evening with her excellent service and sense of when we needed something and when we didn't need something. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it and especially so if it is a special occasion. We will derfinitely return."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was very good along with the service. However, the bottle beer was not cold and the coffee was not hot! I would give it a second chance."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We went during Power & Light restaurant week before the ballet. There was also a concert at the Sprint center so the restaurant and bar were both very busy. The server (Hector) was very attentive and did his best to see that we were served promptly and that we made it out in plenty of time. As always, the food was excellent. We chose the steak and the scallops and both were prepared, seasoned and presented beautifully. Because there were a lot of people there, and the flooring and walls are wood, without much to absorb sound, it's a bit noisy, but not uncomfortable. Overall it was a great fit for the evening."

  • "My wife & I enjoyed a great meal of salmon and steak Friday night."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I've eaten here a few times and this time was a huge disappointment. Drinks were not poured correctly (a bourbon and ginger that came out as a bourbon and water, Manhattan served with no garnishings). Food came out very slowly. A 7:45 reservation didn't e d u t almost 10. Server was friendly but out of her element."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Waited 20 min to sit down with a 8pm reservation and restaurant wasn't busy at all"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We came early in the evening (5pm) so it was rather quiet and not busy. We thought we were there for restaurant week but were a day early, so no meal special we were expecting, but our waiter was very helpful with specials for that night, awesome lobster tail! And other specials on other days of the week. The patio looked great for a nice evening once the weather warms up a bit. Portions were good size. Worth the value especially with the lobster tail. :)"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The food here was good and the service was very good, but I was expecting something unique at this restaurant. I assumed that there would be whisky flights, menu items with whisky/bourbon flavored sauces…some unique food items. There was not. There were a couple of menu items…maybe one or two…that had anything to do with whisky/bourbon flavoring. There were no whisky flights, which was disappointing. We'd been to the Maker's Mark Bourbon Lounge in Louisville before and they had whisky flights, which was a lot of fun. I was also SHOCKED that there weren't any dessert items that had anything to do with any whisky/bourbon flavoring. SHOCKED. It just wasn't what I was expecting. It's a good restaurant, but it's nothing special."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I wasnt impressed sadly, but in all fairness I did go on valenties day and I only had access to a set menu. When I asked it we had access to the normal menu(my girl friend dosnt like seafood and that was a large chunk of the menu) the waiter laughed at me. Its was a 3 course meal with a Amuse Bouche . The starter was mini beef wellington and escargot. The wellington was good, but the escargot was bland and not prepared correctly. They would not allow changes to the first course so my girlfirend actually went without a first course, and I had a crab bisque that tasted like cheese soup with imitation crab tossed in. The Entre they redeemed themselves we both relly enjoyed them and was a good portion Desert tasted like out of box moose."

  • "We walked.in to high-energy noise, which was fine since it was expected. The problem came with getting our meal. It took 20 minutes to get our appetizers, and at this point our drinks had not even arrived. Finally got drinks, and waited another 35 minutes for the entree. The waitress was very apologetic, but that didn't help the situation. Spent more time waiting for dessert and coffee. All in all, service was slow, food was luke-warm, and not very tasty. The wine, though, was very good."

  • "My wife and I ate at MM on Valentines day at 5:00. We tried to enjoy it, but left unimpressed. All the small things make a difference! Pros: Flavorful food! Pleasant servers - our waitress was super nice Nice ambiance Cons: Wine was out of stock Course 1- two different mini bite-size apps - awkward to share Course 2 -arrived before the tiny course 1 was done. My lobster bisque was good but had more of a chicken noodle soup consistency than a cream based soup Course 3 - took way too long; we received courses 1 & 2 prior to our neighbors, but they almost finished their main course before we got ours. Food was lukewarm as well. Service - Waited 15 minutes to get a wine re-pour. My water glass sat empty for ~30 minutes."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very overrated. My husband and I dined here prior to going to the Kauffman Center for a concert. It really was just okay. The food was good but not great. Even though the restaurant was nearly empty, service was lackluster. Our server smelled of old alcohol. I doubt that we will eat here again."

  • "Went for the first time during KCRW on 1/23. Food and service were great. One of the best meals I ate all week. Highly recommend the steak soup, Whiskey Salmon and Bourbon Apple Crisp.. Flavors were fantastic and everything was perfectly matched and cooked great.. Nice place for a great meal at the Power and Light District. Have tables outside too."

    Dined on 1/21/2014
  • "Made a reservation. Introduced myself to the host. He said it will be just a minute. We waited at the host stand (not invited to go to the bar). Host forgot who we were and called my phone that was appropriately on silent in my purse. Service was mediocre at best once we got to our table. Took well over 15 minutes for drinks. We were told that drinks that are listed on the menu (red or white sangria) weren't available. Weren't asked if we wanted appetizers or salads. Took quite a while for food to arrive and then, we the customers, had to direct where it went. Had to ask for 2nd drink. Water glasses were refilled once. Had to ask about desserts. Took 15 minutes to get tickets that weren't correct and 15 minutes for cards to be run."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Made reservations for 6:15 but did not get seated until close to 7pm. The plan was dinner before a concert across the street at 7:30pm. Needless to say we were rushed and there was no concessions made at all. The food was as good as you would expect from a steak house but not mind blowing (in other words not worth the experience). I would pass and try one of the many other restaurants in the area before I go back here...especially if I am trying to be somewhere within 1.5 hours of my confirmed reservation."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We had a great time but because of the crowd, service seemed slow. The food was a little pricey, but worth it. If not for everyone going to the George Strait concert, everything would have been excellent."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "The promo for Maker's Mark was way off the mark (no pun intended) and the food selection was not at all what we expected. We thought we'd be in a cozy, wood-paneled room with fire places and maybe an animal head on the wall ("masculine environment"); instead the restaurant was wide open with nice, but ordinary contemporary decor. The food selection was disappointing...a few appetizers, sandwiches, flat breads and some steaks. Drinks were Markers Mark oriented which we expected. Sandwiches were so-so, one of our party ordered the salmon flat bread with salmon that was microscopic and unimaginative. Sorry...we were excited to go to this restaurant, but it did not match our expectations."

  • "Meal very good. Our holiday meal was fun and we enjoyed our meal very much.The restaurant was pretty chilly. The waiter said they were out of milk and we could not order hot chocolate. How could they be out of milk when a huge grocery store is right across the street. He said there was no microwave. Seemed strange to us no milk and no microwave in a food place. Also, when reservation made, the only time I could get was 11 am or 1 pm, so we chose 11 a.m. but we got there and we were the only table for an hour, then two men showed up, then later a group of 8 people but the restaurant was totally empty other than the three tables. I don't see why we could not get a reservation at any other time than 11 am or 1 pm. It was empty in there."

  • "The steaks were okay, chicken and waffles were below average, and the advertised happy hour specials were misleading. I re read the ad and it says nothing about the happy hr specials being in the bar only. What was worse is that we're were seated right next to the bar and could not get the specials. Overall a medeoker experience."

  • "We had a party of 8& were able to sit at a round table and enjoy great food and conversation. The food was great and so were the specialty cocktails made with different flavors of makers mark. The restaurant was quite, so we were allowed to talk and be able to hear everyone...that's hard to find, most of the time."

  • "We had a table of 6 on a Saturday night. Our first visit. The staff was very friendly and the décor was lovely - kind of "Mad Men ish." The food was good - not great, but really good. Our waitress was very attentive at first, but after we got our food she did not check on us again until we flagged her down for another round of drinks. Unfortunately, two of the wines we wanted (by the glass) were not available or sold out. That was disappointing. In addition, the place was incredibly loud - we had to almost yell at each other which put a damper on conversation. While we enjoyed our visit, we would not go back. We like to be able to talk to the people we are dining with without yelling."

  • "Reservations were running late and after we explained we couldn't wait because we were heading to a concert they opened up an area that was reserved for a group but canceled. It was perfect. Even though we sat at a table that held six people we were secluded and it just made the evening absolutely special. I will definitely go back!"
