Our friends from Minnesota requested a lovely restaurant with good food and quiet atmosphere. Cafe Europe fit the bill perfectly. Our waitress, Megan, was great and enhanced our evening. Our meal (scallops) was delicious, but we had to send them back to reheat which was disappointing. But overall, a lovely evening.

This is a lovely place in Crestwood. It was so close to home (Brookside) and the food was spot on!

What a gem of a restaurant. The service is always impeccable and the food is always so well prepared and presented. Do yourself a favor and try the risotto and scallops and save room for lemon cake or carrot cake! They also make an exceptional burger and daily pizza choices.

Additionally, is there any finer bartender in Kansas City than Susan Avery? She is always so charming and accommodating.

We've been patrons for years and intend to keep coming back.

Dining experience was unremarkable. We ordered a basic breakfast of eggs and bacon which presented poorly and was extremely over priced based on the meal. Highly recommend something other than the eggs and bacon for breakfast.

We have eaten at Cafe Europa on several occasions, but it seemed like they were having a bad night. The Margarita pizza we ordered was sub par. Barely any cheese, wilted basil and Luke warm. It was not a busy night.

My boyfriend ordered the scallops with risotto and I ordered the poussin (baby chicken) with flannel hash. I was not previously warned that the Poussin would be a longer dish to cook prior to ordering, but we had plenty of time so I did not mind the wait. The restaurant is small and romantic. It feels as if you're in a friend's fancy dining room, or attending a fancy dinner party. I appreciated the quietness of the room and the attentiveness of the waiter. It was also apparent that this is a neighborhood favorite as many diners seemed to know the wait staff well.

However, when my chicken arrived it was quite charred on the skin. I kept hoping it would just be crispy and delicious but instead it surprisingly translated the burnt taste to the meat (rather than a smoke taste). It was also a very difficult dish to eat mannerly due to all the bones (the chef could really cut it into more pieces to assist with this). While my boyfriend enjoyed his scallops and risotto very much, I left with the opinion that $25 is too much to pay for burnt chicken (I can accomplish that on my own at home). The waiter did offer a dessert to make up for it, but I declined. Overall, I would try it again for a special occasion, but would definitely order the pork chops instead!

Chose Cafe Europa for Father's Day family brunch. Food was excellent and service great - even though server may have had a table or two too many. Really appreciated that father and grandfather could be seated and have cocktails & conversation while waiting for the "millenials" to arrive. Great place to eat, talk, not be rushed. Special place and atmosphere.

First time here and the interior was lovely. The service was awful. The waiter could not answer any questions about the menu it was ridiculous. If it weren't for the lemon cake - which was amazing- I would never go back.

Hit this spot for the first time on a Sunday evening before a show. The Sunday supper menu is simple yet still hard to choose! Great value for the quality, three-course meal. Solid, yet not overwhelming, cocktail selection. Quiet and unassuming. Great experience for us.

We have eaten at Cafe Europa several times and it has always been one of our favorite restaurants. This time the food had to be sent back to kitchen because it was cold. I don't know if the opening of the second place has caused it to slip but something is not good in kitchen.

Took my wife here for a birthday dinner during the Sunday dinner meal. We are both in our 40's. So not quite old per say, but not kids either.

We both enjoyed the salad.... Mostly because it wasn't drowning in dressing.

I had the trout, and she had the Amish chicken. Honestly, neither dish was seasoned. My wife actually said " Maybe they don't spice they're food until after 7" (our dinner date was at 5:30)!
I'd have to agree, the main course was very bland. Not only did we both add salt, but loads of pepper.

Dessert was a lemon cake....It was ok, a little sweet for my liking. I think the best part of the meal was the coffee.
