Room 39 - Midtown
Room 39 remains one of ourRoom 39 remains one of our favorite metro KC restaurants - and considering the vast choice of excellent restaurants we are fortunate enough to have here, that's really saying something!!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal TreasureWent with my girlfriend here for dinner - Room 39 did not disappoint. Their menu has many wonderful items that were culinary delights. Had the pork chops, and it was the most tender cut of pork ever eaten. No exagerration. Truly a masterpeice. Prices are on the high side, but the food is well worth it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRomanticFantastic food, it was a classy yet quaint establishment. Perfect for a special occasion but you do not have to dress to the 9.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMostly goodI love Room 39 but this visit, I ordered the mussels and was disappointed. They were not great and did not taste fresh. On a good note, the vegetable risotto was excellent. Fresh, crisp spring veggies and I love that I can order a small size.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness DinnerWent to Room 39 for a business dinner based upon a co-workers recommendation. Was quite enough for a business conversation while other couples and friends in the restaurant were enjoying their dinner. The food was excellent overall. A good variety of seafood and pasta dishes. The goat cheese gnocchi was the highlight of my dinner. I think the best compliment was the business associate that was with me (from California) said the scallops were as fresh and tasty as what he eats on the coast. Didn't try them, but they did look outstanding. Wine selection is broad but not with known names. Overall very good food and enjoyable business dinner.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a food experience.This is a food experience. Very fresh, local ingredients; well prepared and exquisite spring flavors!!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Fine Dining ExperienceRoom 39 is a nice balance between traditional and progressive cuisine wrapped up in a comfortable fine dining experience. The food is not only excellent tasting, but the variety and selection is very good, too. My wife and I especially liked the 4 course menu option with wine pairings where you choose a soup or salad, pasta dish, entree, and dessert and the restaurant matches each course with a special glass of wine. In addition, many of the items on the menu are locally grown, so Room 39 is a great supporter of the region's farmers.
Finally, we can't let the review go without complimenting their accommodating and friendly service. My wife and I had a show to catch that evening and the restaurant got our meal ready with time to spare.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night with our neighbors!Great place, great company, great food! We really enjoyed the food and ambience! We will be back for sure!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBecoming a regular in ourBecoming a regular in our rotation and never disappooints! Four course tasting is always the way to go for $39. Done the wine pairing twice now and both times the pairings were pretty spot on. Menu is seasonal with lots of local ingredients. Good flavor combinations.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MealI have been here before but no one else in my party had. Food was very good! Celebrated a Birthday and had a nice lunch.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI've had three dining experiences now at Room 39 and am always completely satisfied. On this occasion I brought my mom for the first time. She was immediately impressed with the bartender who recommended a great wine and escorted us to our table when it was ready. We both did the tasting and enjoyed trying several different things. My favorite being the smoked trout salad! Both of our entrees were a little to rich but still very good! I would definetly recommend this place for a truly memorable dining experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways impressed by Room 39.Always impressed by Room 39. Had the gniocci for the second time. It had a different sauce but was still just as delish. Can't wait to try brunch!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!!!The food was fantastic and the service was great! A great special night place!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMStill fabulousNo matter how many times I come here, it continues to impress. I had the Pappadelle with save and Morrels that was unbelievable. Starter was Smoked trout - perfectly smoked over a bed of lightly-dressed greens. Fantastic. My wife had the beat salad - always a favorite of ours as it's light, but extremely flavorful. For dinner she had the KC Strip - perfectly cooked the mash were a bit salty on their own, but excellent with the steak (an odd first for us here). All in all, Bravo!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFour Course TastingI had a wonderful meal and because it was my first time I chose the four course tasting. It was a fabulous way to taste a few of their unique menu items.
I will go back for special occasions!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.Love the 4 course tasting menu option. Great deal for for the price. The seared foie gras on brioche appetizer is worth the price of admission alone.

Our anniversary dinner was the occasion and we invited two great friends. All of us totally enjoyed the food, wine, and ambiance. The waitress was extremely accommodating as we were all very talkative and slow to decide on food. The appetizer escargot on sweet potato purée was quite delicious, and all our entrees were magnificent. My husband was salivating over the sweetbreads only to discover they were sold out. He did his very best persistent grovelling to the waitress and maitre d and voila!, a plate of sweetbreads magically appears! A great time, laugh, and delicious feast was enjoyed... We also had a delicious apple tatin and lava cake for dessert. Outstanding!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLove It!We love Room 39! A great dinner experience - the menu is seasonal, the cocktails are flavorful, and the ambiance is cozy elegance. Can't wait to come back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love itThe food is to notch each time we've eaten at Room 39. We love the downtown location, although the Mission Farms ambience is a bit nicer. The wine list is excellent with thoughtful selection instead of a telephone book of labels. Excellent overall experience, highly recommended!2/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
