The food was excellent! Not only a full menu to choose from but a complete list of starters and main dish daily specials. Our server was fantastic for us - perfect attention to detail and a sense of humor to make our dinner perfect. Will be going back again soon!

We had a charming outdoor table under a tree. The ambiance was a 10. Unfortunately the food was about a 5. I had the scallops which were served in a scallop shell that was full of water. No crispy outside sear. The gnocchi side was bland and the mushroom sauce very thin in consistency. This was my first time back since the reopening. Disappointing, especially since this place isn't cheap.

Maybe because it was a Sunday evening, service was fair. A member in our party has dietary issues with certain vegetables, requested a substitution and was assured there would be no problem. The meal arrived without the agreed upon substitution. It was pointed out to the server at that time, we were told he would take care of it and never did.
Empty plates and glasses remained far too long on a too small table for 4, and were only removed when food was brought.
Server began clearing the table before everyone was finished eating.
Seated outside and staff and their friends were in 'their area' too close to be smoking. Being down wind we were very aware

The experience here was phenomenal. My girlfriend and I, visiting Kansas City from out of town, sought a somewhat upscale dining experience. We were astonished by absolutely everything in our time here, from an exceptional server, Brian, to the absolutely incredible food. Anytime I return to Kansas City, this restaurant will be a must.
