Exceeded my expectations
We have been wanting to try dinner here for awhile and man were we all very pleasantly surprised. the food was at the high end of the foodie scale. The Coq au Vin was superb, everyone enjoyed every course.

Online menu was outdated....small
Online menu was outdated....small dinner portions were eliminated & several entrees had changed. We were advised by our waiter of a new executive chef within the last three weeks. Three of our party were very pleased with entrees (coq au vin, salmon salad, ravioli). The fourth of our party found the short ribs very undercooked...returned the plate to the kitchen to redo... it returned & the meat was very tough. The chef was apologetic and comped with free dessert. This is a beautifully restored space & the food has real potential...worth a visit. We will return to try again.

The new Chef is ready!
Four of us decided Saturday night to check out the new chef, Shaun Brady at Reserve and we were blown away! Guess he's been tweaking the menus since early June, but all that attention has really paid off. Couldn't come up with one fault the whole evening. Apps hit the mark - truffled Deviled Eggs were pure comfort, Gorgonzola & beef Flatbread was satisfying, and the Shrimp Corndog melted in our mouth. The well thought out wine list was concise and hit all our buttons. Our big plates were filled with all our favorites - beef, chicken, pasta, and seafood - all seasonal, local, fresh, with well prepared veggies. Finished with the required chocolate, custard, fruit, and gelato delights! Experience the magic now! Brunch is next for us.

It was a quiet night and the
It was a quiet night and the chef came out to check on us and our meal. He also made us a special dessert and brought it out to the table. Excellent food and great service. Would definitely go back.

There were eight of us. It took too long for initial drink orders, but once things go rolling service was attentive. Food was prepared quickly and served warm and smoothly, not always the case with eight people. Menu was not overwhelming but complete and execution was superb. One member of our party said the short rib was the best she'd ever had. Wanted to say overnight and eat again the next day!!
Will definitely return.

We've gone to Reserve two
We've gone to Reserve two weeks in a row for Happy Hour. The waiter was excellent, the food delicious, and the environment very pleasant.

Went before Sprint concert. Perfect spot to begin the evening. Food was very good and service was excellent. We will make this a go to location whenever we go to the Sprint Center. Great find.

Elegant setting, delicious food
Very good food and a beautiful atmosphere. Had it not been for a few shortfalls in service, this great place would easily be rated outstanding. I will definitely return!

Don't miss out
We had a table for 8, which means a lot of starters and a lot of entrees to try! EVERYTHING was excellent. The chef and his Irish accent made time to come out and say hello. Love the atmosphere. You don't have to stay at the hotel to eat here but I recommend it just because it's pretty great. Very happy to have this gem in KC. A particular highlight was the mixed berries with basil sugar and lemon sorbet for dessert! We let them know ahead of time it was my mother's birthday and they brought out a nice message on her dessert plate.

We loved the bar and restaurant
We loved the bar and restaurant space. Be sure to ask for one of the 'sofa' tables - very cool. Food was very good. Service was as well, but our meal took a little longer than expected. The chef came out personally to apologize AND gave us a 20% off card for next time. We weren't that concerned about it, but this extra effort meant alot. We will definitely go back. Looks like a great bar to sit at and have a cocktail as well.

Intimate Environment, Good Food
The Reserve had good to excellent food. My Arugula salad was as expected, but fairly routine. The Coq au Vin was excellent and very true to the original version, except for a somewhat lighter, but still wonderfully flavored sauce. The chicken appeared to have been roasted separately so it stood out from the sauce and had it's own flavor. Wine list is very limited, but there are some decent selections. The atmosphere is intimate and romantic - would be good for an anniversary or birthday dinner for 2 The service was okay but the waiter was late taking our order, checking back and bringing the bill. I would try it again if in the area for dinner. 2 salads, entrees, 2 glasses of wine and tip - $91.00.

Reserve at The Ambassador has a modern elegant ambiance-very sophisticated, but warm and cozy at the same time. I had the coq au vin and it was scrumptious. Looking forward to my next visit.

Reserve a great find
We had dinner with another couple at Reserve. We all liked the look and feel of the space. We appreciated the fact that we could really converse - the quite ambience is a plus. Between the 4 of us we tried the deviled eggs, a flatbread, short ribs, coq au vin and the mussels. Plus we all shared the chocolate-chip bread pudding for dessert. Everything was delicious. Our server was personable, attentive and had good suggestions for us. I am already looking forward to returning.

This is a beautiful gem in the heart of downtown KC. The decor is stunning and quiet making for easy conversation. Our server was very helpful in describing and suggesting delicious dishes. The chef came out and even gave a tour of his kitchen, of which he was justifiably proud.
