A word from Piropos Restaurant
The taste of Argentina is very American Midwestern. The foods of its capital city, Buenos Aires, are steaks, grilled meats, seafood, fresh salads and vegetables. Argentineans enjoy dining in a generally relaxed atmosphere where conversation and gracious dining go hand-in-hand. Piropos Restaurant, on the hill in Briarcliff Village, offers a unique view, warm atmosphere and fresh foods prepared in the Argentinean style. ***PLEASE NOTE: WHEN MAKING RESERVATIONS PIROPOS CANNOT RESERVE WINDOW TABLES. THEY MAY BE REQUESTED UPON ARRIVAL, BUT CANNOT BE GUARANTEED. Thank you.

    After moving to KC from LA, I didn't think we'd ever find a restaurant in this area that would compare with the infinite variety of excellent places in southern California. I am happy to say that Piropos meets that criteria. The lunchtime atmosphere was relaxing and not rushed, our server went out of her way to accomodate our every request and the food was exceptionally good. I have already recommended this gem to many friends and family who said they were looking for someplace close to home with a top notch dining experience.

    We were pretty excited to try piroppos. We had an early dinner reservation and the seating was decent but a narrow pathway. The table right next to us was too close and I could hear their hatemongering conversation even when I tried to tube it out. Our waitress was very nice but clearly not knowledgable about the menu. She was very helpful in catering to our dietary restrictions. The bread was okay. The empanadas were good. We had the scallops for appetizer and I guess maybe I should just stop ordering that in KC. My wife had the halibut which was good. I ordered the peppercorn steak which us their signature dish. It was like a microwave steak. There was no flavor and the meat was poor quality. I chewed a bite and the next one I could not swallow so I spit on my plate. The manager walked by and just hurriedly asked if everything was excellent and walked away seeing that I had barely touched my plate and I had retired my silverware. The waitress offered me desert on her. Well $150 later, I was not impressed and will not be going back. I don't like to raise a stink by demanding anything from managers, etc. I expect in a fine dining place, people pay attention to the details without the embarrassment.

    I had the peppered tenderloin and it was excellent. My husband had the lamb chops which were beautifully prepared, however they were just a little tough, but the sauce and accompaniments still made it worth while. Ended the meal with the creme brule flamed table side. Delicious. Great view of the city lights from this restaurant.

    My wife and I very much enjoyed Piropos for her birthday. Not only was one of their signature items, the Pepper-encrusted filet outstanding, we also enjoyed the crab bisque. The service was excellent. Our waiter even took the extra step of giving us a desert boxed up on our way out. We did not ask for it but he shared. The wine list was well-rounded and thorough, although the selection you could purchase by the glass somewhat limited. We recommend enthusiastically.

    This is my restaurant of choice for a special occasion or for entertaining visitors. Two of the four people in our party ordered the 8oz. Grilled Filet Mignon, and both were highly satisfied with their steaks. One ordered the Grilled Pork Chops, and truly enjoyed his meal. I had the Pan-Seared Stuffed Chicken Breast, and definitely will have it again. We've never been disappointed with anything we've had to eat or drink here. The wine and spirit lists seem to have something for every taste (we enjoyed the Cakebread Chardonnay and the Camus VSOP Cognac). We'll be back!

    Our waiter Fred was fabulous....the BEST! He was knowledgeable, professional, funny, and we will ask for him again. The only thing I am a little disappointed in is the prices. We dine at Piropos once a year and I tell so many people about your restaurant. The atmosphere is romantic, the food is outstanding but the prices for wine, appetizers, salads is too much. We always get the peppercorn filet mignon in brandy sauce.....my absolute favorite. We like to try lots of different wines, appetizers, desserts and the prices prevent us from doing that. I understand the price for the entrées. If you are looking to impress someone, Piropos is the place.

    We loved our meal as always. The pork chop is wonderful and a lot of food. We also had the three layer chocolate mousse cake and the banana cake and they were yummy! They were very busy so the waitress gave us two free desserts to apologize for her not being as attentive as usual. She was a nice lady and I thought she did a fine job. The desserts were an unexpected treat!

    The rack of lamb was the most delicious meal I have had the pleasure to enjoy in a very long time! My date ordered the filet medallions and although tender, the plate was underwhelming for the price. Appetizers were delicious, crab cakes and brie, were spot on. I will be back for the lamb, and perhaps next time she will give a different meal a shot. Overall I was pleased with our experience, however she will need more convincing. However, we will not judge the experience on a single plate of food that was a minor letdown.

    We made reservations for a special occasion based on a good lunch experience. However, the dinner experience was lacking. We were seated after waiting 45 min past our reservation time. Bar service was poor as well. (Waited 7 min for bartender to acknowledge me, and another 5 before taking my order, and another 8 before getting drink. Bar was not visibly busy I was one of 5 people at bar with many empty seats. Bartender spending time on computer. Drink was very good though.) Food was marginal and waiter seemed overworked and it was difficult to get his attention. Had to send back food for being delivered lukewarm (mashed potatoes).

    This is not a review, but a suggestion to Open Table. WE made a reservation for 7:00 p.m. because there was a musical event scheduled there. When we arrived we were told they didn't take reservations. As it was, even though it was crowded, we managed to get a pretty good spot. (My reservation request stated we wanted to be near the musical event. That should have alerted someone there. It was our first time at this restaurant's new location, so we didn't know the restaurant was actually on the second floor; the music event was in the bar area on the first floor. Perhaps some communication between you and the restaurant would have helped. It was no problem for us, but making some adjustments may save some angst for some future patrons.

    I brought my work team here for dinner and some of them were guests from out of town (FL). The team absolutely loved it and thanked me repeatedly for bringing them there. The food was outstanding and we all thoroughly enjoyed the views and beauty of the restaurant. The team took pictures as it was such a wonderful evening. The folks from KC had never been and told me they would definitely be coming back.

    I've eaten at Piropos many times for dinner but just recently had lunch there on two occasions. The first louting I had the trout which was excellent. This week on another outing I did the $12 express lunch with their salad and empanadas. If you aren't real hungry it is the perfect amount of food and you certainly won't fill up on it. Always a good view even on a gloomy day

    I was at Piropos with a foodie friend in from San Francisco, whom I wanted to introduce to the restaurant (a favorite of mine). Alas, it turned out to be a poor experience for my friend, whose seafood choice she could not eat because of its saltiness. She probably should have simply returned the dish immediately -- explaining the problem -- but she struggled with it for awhile, then in the end ask Piropos to knock half off the price of the entree (which was done). The meal turned out, obviously, not to be a success due to her ongoing complaints to me about the salt. She did enjoy her two "Kettle" martinis, however, the second one consumed with the meal. And I, too, had an excellent martini (just one before dinner) made with Bombay Sapphire.

Our meals were very good, though my wife was disappointed with everything she had, just not what we remember from our past experiences with Piropos. We'd still recommend it, but there's just too many places in Kansas City with innovative menu's and consistent service.

    This restaurant is exceptional. My waiter, and the manager, Fred, was courteous, friendly, attentive, and was around whenever we needed him. His recommendations were spot on for our palettes and the young lady I brought with me was blown away. It was perfect! She left with high spirits--and that's all I wanted. The view of downtown Kansas City is stunning and the ambiance complements the classy vibe of the establishment. As far as customer service is concerned, it was top notch. I actually forgot my hat at the restaurant and Fred called my cell phone and is holding it for me. This kind of service and quality is what will keep this restaurant around for decades. I'll be back!!!! Cheers!

    We loved our dinner experience celebrating my husband's birthday by dining at Piropos! The food was excellent, could not have been better. We highly recommend the filet with the brandy cream sauce and the seafood platter, they were both delicious!!The waiter was friendly and made great recommendations. Only small note of criticism is there was a long time between course servings, so if a on a time table not the place to got. However we had a great view of the downtown KC skyline and we were not in a rush so did not mind.

My wife's Mixed Grill of the Daily Seafood Selection, Shrimp & Scallops was awesome!
