The aioli shrimp appetizer was wonderful. For mains we had the KC strip the gnocchi bolognese. Both were well-prepared and tasty. The wine list was short, but some nice choices at reasonable prices. We enjoyed a French Syrah. Service was very good, and all the staff were very friendly.

Several open tables including 2 long tables. The manager walked away and said I needed to speak with the hostess. None of the hostesses knew what to do and I still don’t know what was going on. The staff was kind and finally accommodating but I would not work for the manager. They are the only gig on campus and it’s too bad. They need some competition.

Great breakfast selections including their various egg Benedict options and bacon infused waffles. Lunch included a tasty chicken carbonara, numerous classic sandwiches and salads. Tried the citrus grilled chicken which touched the right notes with strawberries, blueberries, mandarin oranges, pineapple and candied pecans. Happy to return for the limestone ambiance and variety of good food. Will check out the fried pickles and queso next time.

I had eaten at the Bar while my daughter attended KU a few years ago but hadn't visited since. Brought friends and we felt that the quality and prices were awesome! We'll be back. Took a quick peek of the Nest while we were there. Had another concert to attend so didn't stay this time. Will look for a band to come back and enjoy with drinks some weekend down the road.

Expected it to be busy but it wasn't. We were sat at 6:30 and our food did not come to the table for almost an hour. We were told that the kitchen was backed up. Totally understandable if you don't have a full staff and it was a holiday. Not a big deal. When our food arrived, it was warm at best. I don't mind waiting that long but the food should be hot. All three of our meals were cold. Terrible.

The food was great, the server was fast, and the manager came out flying a huge helium Shark drone for Shark week....he was really fun and entertaining. We have always enjoyed dining here. It was neat to go to the 8th floor and look out over the KU campus and the football field.

What was supposed to be a relaxing dinner was anything but. I asked for a glass of merlot and our waitress looked at me dumbfounded, finally she asked if this was a wine! I ordered the Salmon with a teriyaki glaze, they forgot the teriyaki and the salmon was severely overcooked. At the end of the main course the waitress gave us the bill, didn’t ask if we wanted coffee or dessert, and just walked away. We decided, rightly or wrongly, that rather than make a scene we would pay the bill and would just never frequent this place again. Also, it was strange that we were not given a guest (second) copy of our credit card receipt for our records. On the way out the door they started to vacuum the restaurant even though it was still dinner service and the place was mostly full. I told the hostess that I could not believe they started vacuuming during dinner hours! Imagine my surprise when I got home and found out that my credit card had been charged for a 20% tip even though I had left 15%. I called the restaurant told them my concern, asked for a manager and waited on the phone for 10 minutes. Finally I was told there was no manager available even though 2 were on staff when we left; I left a message with the hostess and asked them to have a manager call me. It is now an hour and a half later, I called back and was told that a manager was still not available. I informed the hostess that I was planning to post a negative review if I did not hear back in 10 minutes. One minute later he called back! I decided to post this as a warning to future patrons. This place is a disaster, do not waste your time here!!!

I received an email from Open Table to confirm our reservation then another email asking for me to confirm. On The Hill is a small Italian restaurant in a large hotel on the campus of the University of Kansas. The hotel manager got on his phone and could see our reservation yet the maitre d’ did not look at or not have access to Open Table. He was completely booked.but we were seated at a table off to the side in an overflow/storage area. Once seated we were not greeted by a wait staff. We could see the maitre d’ and a couple of staff “arguing” over who would wait on us. After 10 minutes of still not being waited on, we left. I was very disappointed as I had been wanting to try this new restaurant. How can a restaurant be on Open Table yet not access any reservations made!?! It is not 100% the fault of Open Table yet it does not create confidence.

Wasn't very crowded on a weeknight. The owner greeted us, told us about the menu, talked to us about our wine preferences, and recommended a bottle that was perfect for both our tastes. Had the pork and it was perfectly done!

Wanted to go somewhere new and interesting, so was hoping this would be the place. It delivered. The food was so good! Not knowing what to expect, we were more then thrilled.
