Michael Smith has mastered food. Fabulous meal! Sumptuous and amazing. My husband and business associate both had the 8 hr pork. Another friend had the pasta special with crab, and I enjoyed the yellow tail. All phenomenal. Topped off with the cobbler. Doesn't get any better.

One of the last special dining experiences available in Kansas City. It’s forma without being pretentious and the food quality/presentation is second to none in KC. Also, order an old fashioned from Extra Virgin next door. The best ever!

Overall good experience. Food was good, service was fantastic. Prices are what you should expect from a fine dining establishment such as this. The only price I had was that they double charged my card! Not very happy about that! They will be getting a phone call for sure!

Went for the Thus night four course menu for 45 bucks. Each thur they serve a different Italian themed menu that is always delicious! And....Italian wine is also half off! They serve some of the best Italian food in Kansas city! All the pasta is made fresh each day. Just superb experience!

Fresh,great presentation.....I think Michael Smith has actually been at the restaurant every time we have been there. This guy pours everything he has into assuring that you will have a quality dining experience. No matter which side you dine on (we love Extra Virgin too) you can count on quality ,creativity and attention to detail. Michael Smith continues to raise the bar in Kansas Citys fine dining experience.

There was a few in the group that are not as adventuresome as my family, so the chef tasting was fun to watch them. Everyone enjoyed . Service was great and they were very attentive to our needs. The wines paired nicely with the meals. The portions were very good size and we left stuffed. Would of liked a quick chefs hello.

We went for my husband's birthday on a Wednesday night. We got the tasting menu and wine pairings. It was so much fun, one of the best romantic/special occasion spots in KC. His favorite bite was the swordfish and I loved the lamb. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Great time.

The pasta tasting menu was incredible. Great flavors and portions were good so one didn’t feel stuffed walking out. Our server was fun and Michael Smith came out toward the end of our meal to go around and say hello to every table. This was our first time here and we will return.

We had heard great things about Michael Smith but were disappointed. Our server was fine, but not great, and one of our sides was forgotten. The complimentary small meatball to try was cold, and our entrees looked pretty and tasted ok, but we were expecting bold flavors and really tasty food. Bummer!

Overall our experience was good, until one of us received our entree. It was over cooked and our server failed to check back after the plate had been placed. If she had, we may have been able to enjoy our meals together. That said she did check and immediately removed the plate and offered another serving. We had an engagement to attend, time was short so a salad was selected, which was served and proved delicious. Our meal was comped which was appropriate. We may or may not return.

My husband and I had dinner here for our anniversary and were very pleased with what we ordered. Chef Michael also came by our table to see how we enjoyed our meals, which showed his dedication to his diners and their experience. This restaurant is perfect for those who enjoy a nice night out and want to have quality made to order food. I highly recommend it. We will definitely come back.

It was the best meal I have had in a long while. I got the sweet potato agnolotti in sage and brown butter as an appetizer and the scallops with a lovely pea purée as my entree. Wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon as well. Honestly everything was perfect! And our server couldn’t have been better! I noted in my reservation that I had a garlic allergy. So when I arrived she had a list of menu items that were safe for me to eat after consulting with the chef prior to my arrival. THAT’S service. Thank you all for a great 21st anniversary dinner!

We were there on a quiet night (four tables in use) and I felt service was a little slow for that number of tables, but not a big issue. Food was very good and very nice presentation.
When I made my reservation thru Open Tables I was asked if this was a special occasion and replied Birthday. Not sure why this was asked as it was not acknowledged by the restaurant. There was no need to acknowledge but why the question? Overall a nice dinning experience with very good food.
