As always the food at Capital Grille was very good and they definitely know how to cook a steak how you want it. I have to say Amber was one of the best servers I have ever had. Despite the packed house, she made sure that all of our special requests were taken care of and took time to talk with my guests. More

I thought the food selections were unique and flavorful. I would like to see more attending given to the side dishes/vegetables. I had some peas on my plate that tasted like nothing, it didn't really complement the delicious meatloaf. Both of our soups were delicious and so were our entrees. We had a very nice waiter as well.

Discover Plaza

Brookside is a quieter area of Kansas City, but don't overlook it if you want to try some incredible meals from all around the world. For example, you'll find many Italian restaurants in the area that serve delicious lasagna Bolognese and other classics. There are also plenty of sushi joints for residents and visitors who just can't get enough of this popular dish. Gyro fans will be in luck too because Greek restaurants are popular places to grab a quick bite. For those who want something a little more traditional, there are great barbecue stops that serve pulled pork dishes. Make sure to stop at one of the many bakeries in the area as Brookside and Kansas City are renowned for having some of the best cinnamon rolls in the nation.
