We had a wonderful meal. My husband and I are always looking for something different. We are very adventurous eaters and sometimes find it hard to find something new. We found exactly what we were looking for here. The best part is that most of the dishes are tapas. We were able to try five dishes and each was amazing. Their cocktails are to die for. None of the cheap sugary crud. Each one we had was a prefect balance of flavors to the alcohol. We can't wait to got back. Sadly we couldn't try the WHOLE menu this time... I guess we will just have to go back very soon.

Extra Virgin was a fantastic means of going outside your comfort zone as far as your taste buds are concerned! Don’t let that scare you off though as most, if not all of the items on the menu are highly palatable even to the most picky of eaters, all the while maintaining a sense of quirkiness and creativity. If you’re in the mood for great tapas and something a little new: Extra Virgin is the place to go.

Enjoyed a sunny afternoon on the patio with a girl friend and a nice glass (or two) of Rose. As always, the seasonal food was delicious and inventive. We shared several small plates including the roasted cauliflower, creamy asparagus soup, the green bean and potato salad and olives. We both eat "mostly" plant-based, and it is easy to do that here without feeling deprived. The green bean and potato salad was my favorite of this lunch - fingerling potatoes, green beans and hazelnuts and a nice tart dried fruit. I'd order a double next time and keep it to myself! Excellent service, buzzy atmosphere, just a wonderful experience.

We enjoyed a very delicious, well-paced meal at Extra Virgin with friends. The service was outstanding and very attentive. We have several rounds of hot and cold tapas, cocktails, wine and desserts. All of the food was perfectly seasoned and portioned. EV is a great place to try something new, try lots of small bites, try a new cocktail, and enjoy a quality local restaurant. We will be back soon!

Great tapas restaurant and worth the cost. Service was superb - our server was knowledgeable about the menu and its ingredients. The classic cocktails were excellent. Lots of life, friendly conversations, and a nice view of downtown KC from the south end.

Extra Virgin is one of our favorite places to eat in KC. Great small plates, nice wines, friendly service. It is a bustling place in the city - doesn't everyone need a dose or more of that in their week? This visit we expecially loved the octopus and the ribs - but we have never had a bad meal in this restaurant. We'll be back!

The waitress, Marie was outstanding. She was very well acquainted with the menu and her recommendations were on point. She was very attentive. The empanadas are a must have. The pork shoulder could be less fatty. I think the atmosphere could be less noisy. I feel like I had to shout to speak to my group.

Great experience! Went on a Thurs. night in Feb. ...early, made a reservation for 5:15 PM and got seated immediately. By the time we left at 6:15/6:30, the place was packed. Happy Hour specials are terrific (4-6 PM) and include half-price for many (most?) of the small plates and a number of great drinks for only $2.50. Our total bill (including drinks and dessert) was under $40 for the two of us! I'd go again in a heartbeat. Nice job, Extra Virgin!

Very disappointed. I have celiac which is a gluten allergy. Most restaurants especially more on the fine dining side should either label or train their servers. We ordered salmon tuna ceviche which did not list soy sauce as an ingredient. We also mentioned to the server I needed everything to be gluten free. The dish was soaking in soy sauce. Next we got the ribeye which was so salty my mouth was was hurting. I hardly ever complain but this restaurant was a disappointment. When the mgr came around and asked how everything was I voiced my concern that the food should be labeled better and he made me feel like it was my fault for not know poke ceviche had say sauce.

Sad to have made a reservation for 8:30 and then not get seated until 8:50. This kind of flies in the face of the entire concept of Open Table.

Just an OUTSTANDING and Fun "Small Plate Place"

The chorizo and crab fried rice topped with a poached egg is the best fried rice I have ever had anywhere

Constantly changing, thus fun toward the Small Plate experience

Been wanting to try this place for a while now, but unfortunately had a mediocre visit. The food was nothing special. Had a few good tapas, but the mussels were the worst I have ever had. The waiter took them off the bill, but from the moment he treated us poorly. Just a big disappointment for wanting to try this place for so long..

The food was decent but definitely not the best Tapas we have had. Furthermore, the value as the amount you get for what you pay is a little expensive. Environment though, was great and the waiter Sean did a great job.
