Even though they were jammedEven though they were jammed for Motrher's Day, everything was outstanding. This is one of our favorite restaurants for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and dessertFantastic food and dessert selection. The salmon was outstanding. We were there for Mother's Day brunch and it was very kid friendly. Only issue was service- which was just ok. We had to track her down for refills and she never told us about drinks besides water and coffee. The food was fabulous but mainly lunch- eggs benedict, biscuits and gravy or one more breakfast item would have been nice. We will definately be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely brunch.

We had just toured the Truman Library.
I found it on-line and wasn't aware of it until then. Great service, lovely interior, not very crowded and nice selection of food.

Service was great. Food was bland. I had the salmon. It was served on a bed of pea rissoto with asparagus. The rissoto was great, but the flavors didn't mesh. The spices were bland. Not much flavor.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can't go wrong with Ophelia's!We had a group of two couples. Our waiter was fabulous with suggestions for each palate. The food was well prepared. The wine list was sufficient for us. The coffee is great (Roasterie coffee). We were not rushed at all and actually stayed too long. I enjoy Ophelia's for many reasons. The food is always well prepared. There is a variety to select from. Wait staff are attentive but not overbearing. They have musicians playing quietly through the evening and it adds some romanticism to the meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite chef in the entireOur favorite chef in the entire KC area. Food is always outstanding and the eclectic shops on the town square surrounding it make it a fun destination restaurant.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the food on the brunchSome of the food on the brunch buffet was out when we got to the restaurant (12:45 pm and buffet didn't end until 2:00 pm)however, the staff made every effort to substitute with something else.

We ask for a table off to the side and we still had awesome service. Loved the live soft Jazz.It was loud enough to hear and soft enough for us to meet and talk with friends.The prices are set at an great price for an upscale resturant. The food was absolutly wonderful.
We didn't mean to but we arrived at 6:30 and stayed untill 9:30. Not once did they rush us. I have told everyone they have to check this Small romantic place out. Lot's of people who has lived here for year never even knew this was in Independence square. We will be telling anyone everyone about this place.
We will be going on the weekend to checkout the all all u can eat brunch that they serve.
Annette Whited3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFound this restaurant a fewFound this restaurant a few months ago and have eaten there four times. Every meal has been outstanding. Highly recommend.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI had made a reservation forI had made a reservation for a later time so we could have a quieter time of the lunch period. We were greeted and seated promptly when our group arrived. I don't know if there are places to set up for larger groups, but we had 4 for a business luncheon and it was just PERFECT!! We were seated back into a "corner" area where we could discuss needed information in a nearly uninterrupted fashion.
Service was wonderful, and I LOVED the Salmon-Chili Salad (on the recommendation of my friend).
Unfortunately, I don't get the opportunity to get to Independence, MO very often, but I will remember Ophelia's for my next venture over that direction. WONDERFUL RESTAURANT!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining in IndependenceWe love having Ophelia's so close in Independence. It's fine dining without the downtown KC drive. The pork medallions were served on a mushroom risotto which was absolutely perfect. Wonderful experience and we'll return soon.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good. My only complaintVery good. My only complaint would be that the lighting was a bit bright.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
