We had a reservation (for two) and were seated promptly. Music played throughout the evening but was not excessively loud and the music played was quite good. Our drinks and charcuterie platter came fairly quickly. The charcuterie is about the best we have had in the KC area. My martini was perfect. Modest wine selection. As the charcuterie plate was pretty big my wife ordered the vegetable and duck soup....it was a bit smoky...and it was really GOOD!!!! I ordered the short rib with BBQ sauce. Wonderful and quite filling. No room for desert. Our server was great! and it was busy too. Strong recommendation and we will be back. More

We needed to be close to the Music Hall so we booked this through Open Table. I didn't actually realize it was going to be a hotel restaurant. I guess I figured it would be a restaurant, independently owned, that happened to be in a hotel (like many of the other restaurants in hotels in downtown KC). The atmosphere isn't anything special, but the food was very good. Everything was very fresh and seasoned well. I will definitely return, but only if I'm headed to something at Bartle Hall or Music Hall. A good alternative to the crowded P and L district. More
