I have visited Pig and Finch on numerous occasions and have had excellent food and service every time. Highly recommend.

good food..poor service
The food was good but our server didn't seem to care we were there. It took forever to get our orders taken and he didn't check on us. Apparently he only cared about you if you were spending big bucks on wine.

The lower service rating is
The lower service rating is not because servers were inattentive. In fact, it was the reverse. They were too attentive, even fawning. It was too much and too saccharine. Back off. The food was outstanding. Let it do some speaking for itself.

Lived up to its reputation
We had heard great things about this place, and it didn't disappoint! The food was great, but this service made the experience.

Truly outstanding food, nice view
The 2 of us split the shortrib grilled cheese, duck fat home fries and an heirloom tomato caprese salad. For desert we shared the butterscotch pot de creme. Everything was flat out excellent. Great presentation, attentive service and a fun atmosphere that isn't too loud for an intimate meal. The corner location and large windows gives almost everyone inside a nice view of Park Place, which has as much charm as you'll find in the JOCO suburbs.

Not just a bar!!!
I was blown away a the level of sophistication this restaurant had. From the well kept decor to the food and service. I was expecting to pick up a few beers and a burger while staying in town, but I was pleasantly surprised! The food was so perfect I actually ordered more than I should have... and the service was great... even though I ate alone (sometimes they ignore you at other places).
The Chef even filled my water a few times, which I thought was really cool. Its nice to see them engaged and approachable.
PIG AND FINCH IS GREAT!

We were in town visiting friends in Leawood, they suggested this new "Gastropubs" place and we were very leery. As soon as we entered the bar area my worries were gone. I was expecting a rough and touch bar with chicken fingers. We had a very nice meal and the manager and chef came buy to say hi. he is going to move to st louis in a couple months where our daughter lives, we hope they open a pig and finch there so we can have more of his wonderful food. we loved the butterscotch creme, this was like my mother used to make!

Earned a Repeat Visit
Accommodated 5 retired former area employees. We were duly welcomed and proceeded to the outside dining area in view of the fine weather. Drink available met each of our tastes. Food choices varied widely but all were rated highly. We will return.

Fabulous First-time Special
Our first visit was a delightful surprise. We took advantage of the Wednesday Night 3-course Special and were very impressed. The gazpacho soup was tasty and creamy. The petite rib-eye steak was huge and the Lyonnaise potatoes made the entrée especially "lively". The suggested wine pairing was a full-bodied Italian red that held up well against the spicy/peppery entrée. The desserts were very good - the butterscotch pot de crème was good though nothing special. The 4-berry pastry possibly had too much pastry but had a nice flavor. The wait staff was efficient and very friendly. The only negative was the $5.00 charge for a small (non-refillable) basket of bread. The ambience was quiet and seating was comfortable. We will definitely return.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate outside and enjoyed the uncommon cool August evening. Food was very good as was the service and eating outside on the sidewalk made us feel like we were in a European venue. Very nice restaurant. First time visit and we will go back and enjoy lunch or dinner inside another time.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
REAlly fun and excellent food
REAlly fun and excellent food and drinks. We all tried different cokctails and everyone was unique and delicious. The food was very flavorful and the server did an excellent job of recommending excellent choices for each meal and drinks. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything from the decor and service down to the duck cassoulet I ate was exceptional! I cant wait to go back with some friends amdsample more beers. I really liked the attitude of the staff.... fun yet they take great care of you.... even the CHEF filled our waters!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and food!
Terrific dinner and our waitress was outstanding. It's a wonderful place to enjoy sitting outside and people watching along with eating great food.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The duck cassulet is totally amazing. I am going back next week just for that dish. I wish they had more beers, some more approachable maybe. the pretzels are killer, we had to get a second order when we blew through the first. i liked the patio and the service is okay.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
BUSY & Superb
very busy night! we were sat and got a table thank goodness. the service was good, but the food was the star. the liver mousse was delightful and we could not get enough. i have eaten here before at lunch and the lamb burger is my suggestion to try. the blt with avocado is also very nice. i really like this huge mural they have over the kitchen, i love this place!!!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just what the neighborhood needs
Not your run of the mill menu. Greatly daily specials. Classy joint.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is killer, especially the cassoulet. The service was a little slow getting drinks, but once we got our food it didn't matter. If you are there and its busy just order a couple drinks at a time... you wont run out that way!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunched in the bar area. Had
Lunched in the bar area. Had the cheese/short rib ragout and it was excellent, although perhaps not the healthiest of lunches.
Bartender, not being busy at the bar, was our server and was attentive and helpful wihout being overbearing or pretentiously cheery. Will definitely return.

Great addition to Park Place!
I have eaten at Pig and Finch 3 times now and have enjoyed it all three times. The choices for starters are very tasty and different. I particularly love the fried bread and butter pickles. They are yummy! The blue cheese potato chips are also great. Two of us had the GBLAT which is a giant bacon, lettuce, tomato with avocado. The bread was crispy and tasty and the sandwich was wonderful. We all also enjoyed sharing the dessert, the warm peach crisp - REALLY GOOD. We all enjoyed sitting next to the window looking out into the Park Place area, which is very beautiful and full of lots of activities. A great location. We will definitely return!

Friend's Reco Was Right On!
I'd heard of this new restaurant with the 'funny' name, but hadn't planned to try it until a friend gave it a rousing recommendation. I was not disappointed. Interesting and tasty menu, something for everyone - the classics were offered as well, but with a bit of a twist, GREAT, GREAT service from the hostess to the wait staff, nice wine list, lovely ambiance - especially patio dining. I will definitely return!

Trout was Excellent
I had the trout and it was excellent and my date had the salmon salad which was delicious too!! All and all we will go back! For Sure!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service
We had not been there before, but took a chance with the good reviews. We were not disappointed. Having recently eaten at a VERY expensive restaurant in KC with particularly aloof and snooty service, we were quite appreciative of the immediate, friendly, and engaging attention we received when we came through the door. They seemed to enjoy working there, and seemed glad we wre there, imagine that. I had the trout, which was terrific, my wife had the pork chop which she didn't care as much for, but I liked (we traded halfway through). Good people, good food, and while we ate inside, there were lots of folks eating outside on the patio.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
So many great choices!
So many great choices on the menu..... it's difficult to make up your mind! The flatbreads are large enough to split and try another small plate. The short rib grilled cheese is to die for! The salmon salad is delicious and filling but healthy! And don't forget to leave room for dessert!
9/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food is woderfull, as was the service. The kale salad and pork chop were devine. We have enjoyed brunch, and dinner here and can't waite to go back. I wish I could keep it a secret but it's just to good.
9/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Worth the cab ride from downtown
We enjoyed our dinner immensely! The cocktails and wine are top notch. The mussels were rated as the "best ever" by one of the diners in our party. The beer base for them makes them so delicious. Croquettes were fantastic, as was flatbread pizza, trout, and grilled cheese with short ribs! The pork belly flavored the lentils exquisiely - certainly the best ever! Skip the Brussels sprout hash - very disappointing! We prefer roasted ones - these were too bland and steamed comparison. Also disappointed that the server and chef were unaware of sustainable seafood and didn't have good information about some of the fish on their menu. This and a Luke warm table presence were the only areas for improvement.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our party of four always enjoys our dining experience - thank you!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Service Great Food
We have many choices of good restaurants in Kansas City, but what makes Pig and Finch outstanding is not only their food is good, they have a super wait staff! They are attentive and very accommodating with special requests on dietary needs! They definitely deserve a 5 star for their service!
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
A very nice culinary experience
My guest and I both had the pork chop with brussel sprouts, which was excellent. Very nice atmosphere and service was very good as well. All in all, a very nice dining experience.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The prefix w/ wine pairings made it easy, since it was my 1st time dining there. The meal was excellent & the wine pairing very reasonable. We will be back
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
All and all... a good meal.
What can I say, it was good, but not great. The Chefs take pleasure in their food, you can tell, but I am still looking for a destination item (or items). Service was OK, however she seemed distracted by other things going on. I will definitetly try it again, and I hope to find something to come back for.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great first experience!
Our first visit to Pig & Finch. I had the pork chop and my date had the chicken. Both were very delicious and cooked perfectly. Prices a bit more than expected but does not surprise me for the area the restaurant is located in. Atmosphere was very nice....better than the website makes it look. Our server was very attentive thoughout our entire meal. I would like to go again and try some of the pub snacks/drinks on the patio. Thank you!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fun and pleasant place for Saturday night dinner. The private room was perfect for our group.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy Hour food offerings
Happy Hour food offerings are very limited. Cocktails are excellent. Happy Hour is limited to the bar area which is very loud. Ordering off the menu, food is very good and interesting.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Extremely friendly and accommodating as soon as we arrived. Fantastic food and service.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM

Had a great dinner experience with the exception of the music.

First visit to P&F for wife's
First visit to P&F for wife's birthday. Arrived to our table and were welcomed by two birthday hats and a nice birthday message card on our table. Our waiter Nathan was very personable and made us feel welcome. Food choices were different from the usual fare and pushed you outside your comfort zone a little. Great atmosphere and food was excellent. Would recommend trying P&F.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Have had dinner numerous times at Pig & Finch and it is always outstanding! Tried the expresso encrusted pork shoulder .. Fabulous! Our sever was professional but also warm and delightful. Love the decor and the mood. Great evening!

Gastropub meets Leawood
Another gastropub dripping with heavy foods. A corporate one in a brand new suburban setting, at that. It's still worth the effort because the food and service are well executed. Wines by the glass are uninspired, but beer selection is decent (including Boulevard Smokestack series). The "poutine" on the menu does not contain cheese curds or gravy -- making it little more than an upscale variation on chili cheese fries -- but we finished it quickly.
If you must dine out South, this is a solid option.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
great food and ambience
I was part of a party of four that dined at Pig & Finch for the first time on a Saturday evening (6:30pm). We all enjoyed the atmosphere---warm lighting and decor. The salmon in parchment was very flavorful without being too salty. My friends had mussels, hen, and gnocchi. They all raved about their food. We brought our own wine. I feel the $20 corking fee is a bit high. For dessert, we shared the donuts and the chocolate cake. I'd pass on the donuts, but the chocolate cake was wonderful--more like a chocolate mousse cake!
The service was one of the best parts. All the staff was friendly and our server was great. He was knowledgeable about the menu and attentive without being intrusive.

Went there for Girls' Night
Went there for Girls' Night Out. It was great for conversation. We stayed a long time and never felt rushed. We had the Sunday special fried chicken which was hearty and we enjoyed the green bean casserole. The wait staff was accommodating with special requests. He was attentive without being intrusive. Some of the tables were a little close together, but that's the only minor complaint. It was a very enjoyable evening.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Interesting menu - good food
Eclectic menu. Good food. Some Comfort food; some different dishes. Our server, Emily, was outstanding and put up with 5 guys drinking and having fun. Manager very nice and helpful as well.

Really enjoyed the food
For an appetizer we tried the pretzel bites and I have to admit I was not very excited. However, these were no ordinary pretzel bites. Highly recommend! I had the apple and goat cheese salad to start and a burger for my entrée. Everything was very fresh. The burger had good quality meat, a nice light buttery bun, homemade pickles and duck fat fries. I am not a huge fan of French fries in general, but these were amazing! Nice and crispy...and a good rich flavor! Yum! My friends both had different salad and each really enjoyed their food. We had donut holes for dessert. We did not care for that dipping sauce. All in all, all 3 of us would go back and we really loved the food.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a party of 10 and a great time was had by all. The food was excellent and the wine list was adequate. Cocktails were interesting and the bar overall was accommodating and vibrant. The service was decent for a Saturday night, food came relatively quickly, but the wait staff could have been a little more attentive. Overall, a bit pricey, but worth the visit.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
one of our favorite locations
always wonderfully flavorful food, delicious drinks and great service.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
we like this place for the casual atmosphere and good food.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went with a group of 10 from work for lunch. It is a great atmosphere. Food was good. Service was a little slow. It could have been the big group. I would go back.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Interesting menu. We loved
Interesting menu. We loved the oysters! Everything was delicious. We will definitely be back! Great service in the bar area.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the hostess to the waitress to the executive chef, everyone was extremely friendly - helpful - knowledgable. The executive chef made an extra effort to offer wine pairings - he even came out and talked with us after our dinner was complete.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food,great staff,great place!
Food was great and our waitress was very nice and attentive, gave great information and recommendations on the menu! The atmosphere was so warm and welcoming!

What's not to love?
Love this place. We keep coming back over and over. We, of course, enjoy it better when we are kidless and not chasing our spawn down the aisle:) The food is fantastic. Have not had a single thing I did not like. We really like this place. And the Lavender Molly...oh my!
