    Beautiful but absurdly over the top. Especially for Kansas City, don't go here if you're starving. But the presentation is Instagram worthy if your into that sort of thing.

    Great atmosphere for celebrating a special occasion or a nice evening with friends. Glad i was able to celebrate my buds birthday at this location and everything was great. Service was excellent and the servers where knowledgeable and patient with us newbies. Definitely stopping by again in the near future to check out the bar side.
