First time there for lunch. The croque monsieur is delicious and the service was impeccable. Great place!

Always in search of French food.
I went here with my daughter on a visit to KC. Our family loves French food and we are always in search of foie gras and confit de canard. I was pleased to find that duck confit was on the appetizer menu and foie gras happened to be the special the night we visited the restaurant. The foie gras was seared perfectly and was served with an apple compote. It was fantastic. The appetizer portion of the confit de canard had one leg which was plenty for me. It was tender, juicy, and seasoned well. My daughter had a salmon entree and it was delicious as well. I will definitely visit again on my next visit to KC.

A quiet place to enjoy
Wait staff was very good. Food was good as was the wine.
It was our 24th wedding anniversary and we wanted time to talk.
We had all the time we wanted and were never rushed to move on.

a nice dinner
We had a "seating issue" with the couple beside us. Other than that, the staff worked hard to make our dinner as nice as
it could be. Good food choices.

Weather has been nice enough to set outside although the later it got, the worse the gnats were...but I could overlook the gnats as they have THE best gazpacho !!! It's so tangy and perfect for a summer treat that makes us wish it was summer all year long!! The server brought our food but she indicated she needed to make a second trip due to the number of plates involved--but after 5 minutes, we had to ask another waiter for the crostini that was supposed to come with the cheese plate. It also took over 20 minutes to bring us our check once requested.

A Real Bistro
First trip was for my wife's birthday. It was perfect. One of the most pleasant dining experiences in Kansas City. Nice service. Appetizer choices are very nice with many classic French choices. Best champagne cocktails I've had in years. The entree choices were a bit limited but tasty. My crepes were a bit disappointing, but all in all, this will become my go to for a nice night out.

Excellent, friendly service, top notch food, lovely porch seating-feels a bit like dining in a European Bistro.

Aixois is a nice neighborhood
Aixois is a nice neighborhood restaurant, a comfortable place to meet friends. It also is a great convenient place to dine prior to an event on the UMKC campus. Always have a good meal.

Great food, great service, romantic . . . but tables just a little too close together. We were seated in the middle of the room, less than a foot away (really just inches) from another table where the patron was complaining steadily and loudly. We worked to see the humor in it, but it took a little bit away from our otherwise terrific experience, celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary.

Summer dining al fresco
It's rare to dine outside in August in Kansas City but the recent cooler weather inspired a trip to Aixois and their lovely patio. My husband, I and our 18 year old son had a marvelous experience starting with orders of the mussels and escargot, then the heirloom tomato and mozzerella salad, followed by entree courses of the trout and hamburger. My husband raved about the escargot and the trout and my son and I savored the incredible hamburgers. Hamburgers at Aixois? I tell you, they are the best in the city. They grind their own meat and the flavor is perfect --nothing foo-foo or artsy -- just a straight up beefy hamburger. Our server was good but not overly attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

A good evening
Good food in a corner table and a atmosphere that was quite enough so that the tabletalk was enjoyable.
The menu selections were varied and well prepared.

Lovely for Business Lunch
This gem is a brilliant, delicious, and surprisingly affordable choice for a business lunch (also for dinner). Appropriate noise level, attentive service, and delicious food. Also, it's an appealing alternative to those of us who have spent too much time on the Plaza.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutley one of the best restaurants in Kansas City!

We loved eating outside where we enjoyed the beautiful day. The waitress was helpful in suggesting the trout and explaining how it would be prepared. It was delicious! The filet laid on top of rice and yummy vegetables. For dessert our table decided to share the samplings of six desserts. What a treat! I will come back!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Charming and delicious!
I love going to Aixois! The best food in the city! Love the neighborhood feel and the charm that comes with this restaurant. I highly recommend dining for lunch or dinner.

Girls Night out
I went out with my friend on Friday, August 16, adn we had a blast. I had a gift card and that really allowed us to indulge. Loved the atmosphere, service could be prompter, the food was very good. We will go back!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly tangy gazpacho -- will hate to see tomato season end. This soup with a salad & wine are all you need
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose your restaurant, based on past visits with family, for quiet atmosphere and a great place to talk. The food and service are always first rate.

Apart from the air conditioning
Apart from the air conditioning being WAY too strong, it was a delightful meal. The frites were fab.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for a special occasion
We had a great time and the service was wonderful. They were very accommodating with our Gluten free request. If you want a romantic but casual dining experience, this is a great spot.

Good Food Marred Average Appetizer
Love this restaurant for its unpretentious, good, French food and wine and good service. I was really surprised to have a beautifully presented but average to tasteless pate.Mussels were superb in contrast.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
True Neighborhood Gem
Wonderful patio! Lovely place to enjoy lunch or dinner or simply to sit for drinks and appetizers. A totally relaxing place to kick back and have wonderful food that seems unpretentious. Our out of town guests loved, loved this place! Have never been disappointed by any selection from the menu.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always Spot On
What an ideal location for lunch outside. The chicken crepes were what I was craving and they were excellent. We had a friendly server who made the meal very enjoyable. This is one of the gems of KC.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Table for two
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we had a very enjoyable time. The escargot was very good and we enjoyed putting the pesto from it on the fresh bread. We ordered the Cuisses de Grenouilles Sautees and Poule Roti and enjoyed them both, but we will try something different next time. The service was a little slow at times, but for us that wasn't exactly a bad thing since it allowed us to relax and have decent gaps between the wine, apps, entrees, and after dinner drinks. We really appreciated the waitresses honesty on a couple of the dishes that did not get great reviews from other patrons that night. It helped our decision making process. To end a very good experience we had a vanilla latte and macchiato that were very good.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We told our server that we had theatre tickets and she brought our meals very quickly. We also toook advantage of the 20% discount offered on our food with KC Rep tickets. Great choice!

We always enjoy Aixois for
We always enjoy Aixois for it's casual European atmosphere, delicious food and wine, and dependably good service. It is our "go to" place for casual elegance--a gem of a dining experience for couples or with friends. And, lunch is outstanding too! We love the outdoor seating, but it is also cozy inside especially with a glass of wine on cold winter evenings.

A Bit of France in Kansas City
I stopped by for lunch on a beautiful fall day. My outdoor table was perfect. I had the steak frites with a small salad and a glass of wine, followed by a latte. Everything was well prepared and tasted great. The service was there when I needed it and not there when I did not. No rush. I could have been sitting in Paris!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely outdoor dining
Altogether a nice dining experience. Loved the impromptu visit from King.

All around positive experience. Will definitely return.

For those searching for a good French dining experience in Kansas City...this is one of those places. We have never been disappointed.

Girls day out
Took my daughters here for our girls day before one of their weddings. Our waiter was professional. Friendly, persOnable and conversational. We truly enjoyed that . He also knew to let us have time as this was our day to just catch up on life together. The food was Superb. No other way to put it... When everybody is telling you to taste theirs, in our family, that means it's goooood!
It was a wonderful brunch....and I received texts from the girls the next day that they wished we could go back.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent French Food
Brought my husband and met my friend here for dinner Saturday. Excellent service and food was outstanding. My "meat and potatoes" husband ordered the filet and french onion soup. Both were excellent. I ordered the beef bourginone and that was outstanding. Friend and I ordered the potato, leek and bacon soup. We expected it to be cream based, but it was broth based. Still excellent. Portions were very good-sized. My friend ordered the fruit crepes. She scarfed it without offering us a taste which means it was very good. Hubby ordered the mousse and really enjoyed it. I ordered the dessert sampler and was not disappointed. It was very share-worthy. We loved everything on the plate. Oh, and the house red was very good with the meal. A+!

Great for a business lunch - you can actually have a conversation and hear each other. Wait staff is attentive but not intrusive.

Pleasant dining experience
My husband and I took friends out as a thank you gift and a time to catch up on our friendship. The food and wine were great! The noise level was low enough that we could have a good conversation. And the server was fluent in French so those in our party who wanted to use their French were delighted to have that opportunity. We've always had nice experiences dining at Aixois over many years!

Aixois is a long-time Crestwood
Aixois is a long-time Crestwood restaurant that knows its clientele and serves it well. The limited menu assures diners that offerings will be well prepared and tastefully presented.
This is the annual spot for birthday dinners for us and the mussels never fail to be delicious and plentiful. That dish combined with charcuterie platter and the always lovely Salade de Maison make for the perfect dinner for two seniors. As in the many dinners past, we enjoyed this one as well.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not recommened but went anyway
We had friends and relatives who did not have great experiences at Aixois, but we went anyway. Service was very good. The food was excellant (mine was a little better than my wife's). Would definitely go back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noise level unbearable.
Food fab, service, good but the interior needs a makeover do to the noise level and ambience...plus, the chairs are so dang uncomfortable.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
great little gem
wonderful food, great service, overall wonderful experience.
We will definitely try this again for a nice occasion.

1st timers We went early, 5:30 for a 6 o'clock reservation Were pleased that we could get the happy hour specials at our table. Very disappointed when we thought we would branch out and try the frog legs - they were out! Other appies very nicely presented/tasty. House red wine good with very generous pour. Monday good night to visit with soup/salad and potato included with entree. We chose the tenderloin and fish special and shared - both DELICIOUS, cooked to perfection. presentation very nice. Had to try the special dessert, apple tatit - yummo atmosphere very nice until large party seated next to us, ok for us, some may not have enjoyed their merriment We will definitely be back - plan on taking my hubby there for a nice, relaxing evening

1st time visit
We went for the 1st time last Saturday. My husband had the escargot appetizer and duck special. Both were full of flavor and delicious. I had the French onion soup and filet. The filet was cooked to perfection and so tender you could cut it like butter. The fries were crispy and plentiful. The wine that was recommended was wonderful. We had 6:45 reservations and were seated immediently.
We will definitely go back soon.

Mussels were fresh, onion
Mussels were fresh, onion soup was hot, chardonnay and vouvray were adequate and service was attentive but not intrusive; what more could you want?
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always, my experience at Aixois was excellent. For lunch, I usually order the goat cheese salad. This time, I tried the qinoa salad with kale, and it was excellent.
I should also point out that one time (a couple of years ago), I accidentally left my coin purse at this restaurant. It had maybe $40 or so in it. No ID, so they had no way of tracking me down.
About 3 months later, it occured to me to check at Aixois. What do you know? It was there. Not a penny missing. That has to speak highly of not only the ownership/management at Aixois, but also the very professional staff. Thank you, Aixois.

Family late Thanksgiving
Outstanding dining experience. You even kept the breading off my 90 year old mother's veal liver and onions. The food was superb. Our waitress did a wonderful job. Keep her there. Thank you spoon much and we will see you again soon.

My friend and I were doing the KKG Holiday Homes Tour and wanted to end with dinner close to the last house. Crestwood was also celebrating their Holiday House Event so after we were done with the tour we continued our great evening looking through all the great Crestwood stores and enjoying Christmas Carols, decorated gingerbread houses, and all the beautiful stores. Our dinner reservation was at 7:15 so we had the perfect amount of time to take everything in before dinner. My roast chicken was delicious and my friends Trout was so go she kept talking about how good everything was. Restaurant was crowded with groups of friends and family's. Atomsphere was lively but but not so loud that we couldn't hear each other. Fun Thursday Night!
