Excellent in every way- superb food and Ashley’s service was outstanding!
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!
Great food. Chef Michael stopped by our table to check on things. Nice touch.
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!
Small portions even when “dinner size” is ordered. Extremely salty food.
Great service and the food was delicious and very well prepared!!
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.
Fantastic high end experiences here! Try the veal chop
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.
My date had the 6 course tasting menu and I had the five course pasta tasting so we could share everything. Everything was fantastic! Michael Smith himself came by to say hello. It was a perfect date!
Food is always great and staff is fantastic. They are very accommodating for gluten free and other ingredients.
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.
Went for son’s birthday. Was a wonderful evening.
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.
tartare and ahi tuna very good apps. had the rabbit gnocci and was a little disappointed. deserts top notch. service very good. overall one of the better meals I have had in kc
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.
Wonderful meal with friends, excellent service, delicious food.
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.
Customer service is excellent and the food is top quality and some of the best I’ve ever tasted. I highly recommend this place, it’s worth every penny!
The friendly and attentive service was outstanding and made us feel so special. Would definitely return.
We haven’t been since it switched to an Italian concept and it was amazing. The appetizers were fantastic and all of the pasta we tried were excellent. Highly recommend! And our server, Sean, was awesome!! We will ask for him again!!!
It was a wonderful experience. Food and service were top notch!
Simply the best
Everything good/great, except noise from extra virgin. You know the person that laughs loud...and annoyingly? Yep. Whole time while we were there on the other side.
We were so impressed with how great the food was! Everyone's meal was creative and delicious. Service was excellent. Wine list is terrific. Great experience.
Fine dining and great service, highly recommend for business or romantic dinner
Fantastic. The Veal chops and the Pork roast were delicious! The Octopus appetizer and the Rabbit Gnochi were as billed (best Apps we’ve partaken. Service was as good as it ever gets! Great dining experience!
Always a delicious and exciting experience
Great experience! The staff was great - everything recommended from wine to dessert was spot on. It was great to see Michael Smith visiting with people and working right along with his staff. Love the option of having a smaller portion of pasta. We will be back!!!
Never had a bad meal here! Had the 5 course pasta tasting and I was happily full. Can't wait to go back soon!
Food Ok, expecting more fish options, more vegetables, but good. Window seat cold. Good wine selection.
Michael Smith has a fun and sophisticated atmosphere with delicious and creative food and a great wait staff, especially Shawn, who was both fun and professional. The conversation flowed as smoothly as the crisp white wine! Great date night restaurant!
Always a perfect menu. Probably the very best cuisine in Kansas City. Creative, Elegant, and always Delicious. Excellent wine list to accompany any course.
Absolutely amazing food! My palate was pleased and the service was phenomenal. Would love to visit again when we return to KC.
