    The food was overall delicious but my fathers steak came out kind of cold and my fiancé had to send back an undercooked crème brûlée. We know that’s not typical of this place and was probably due to being overwhelmed on Mother’s Day.

    Our server was horrible, he didn’t take care of my table at all. I had to continuously stop a waitress that was passing by to ask for things. He took great care of the 2 tables beside us, but when it came to mine he chose not to assist us. This was a Mother’s Day dinner for my wife, mother, and moth-in-law. My steak came out wrong 3 times. Rare every single time. I asked for medium well. The last time we went everything was great! But this time was horrible. Heather the manager took great care of us.

    The restaurant is very nice and the waitress was also. The food, for the price point, was not worth it. Got a 14 oz steak with roasted potatoes and risotto. The risotto was crunchy and under seasoned. My steak was undercooked, had to be sent back. My steak was still undercooked when it was returned. The potatoes were also undercooked. I’m very disappointed because the restaurant was not slammed to warrant these types of issues. The manager did give me a free dessert, but the damage was done. The only thing I would get again via takeout is the carrot cake:delicious!

    On a super busy night for the P&L district with multiple shows and other things going on the valet parking option was the only option. Valet was right outside and well managed. We arrived for our reservation with a great greeting from the desk and were seated immediately. The Server was very attentive, had great suggestions, and was there just when we needed her and let us enjoy our dinner.

    We regularly dine at the Leawood Bristol and decided to try the downtown location. Our crab cake appetizer was small and tasteless. The biscuits were hard and burnt on the bottom. My char crusted tune entree was terrible. The tuna was tough and had multiple tendons—-not sashimi grade. The potatoes were raw, hard and inedible. The foyot sauce was watery and tasted like bad bernaise sauce. Our server Michael was outstanding and the only positive about our experience. He informed the manager and showed her my plate. She obviously didn’t care and never said a word. Complete waste of money and one of the worst meals.

    4pm reservation, told to wait at bar. No one ever sat us and we sat ourselves on patio at 420pm after noticing other tables being sat outside were we requested. Got passed off to a server we never met after the original server left for a "30 min break." Food was ok. Filet was slightly over cooked. Wife's risotto was still kind of hard. never saw a server after she took our order. finally 20 min after finished eating I had to flag down someone and request to see our server. We ordered the prix fixe and never got the dessert. Never got the hot biscuits that are complimentary, the person walked by us 3 times never offering them to us but did give them to other tables around us. No idea who was our actual server was.

    Strange experience. Had opentable reservations for over a month for a special occasion. We arrived early and were told the table was still occupied. 20 minutes after our reservation came and went, they gave us a table in the front party room area that had been open the entire time we sat waiting. Food was to be expected with what we paid, nothing special. Used the birthday coupon at the end but was told we had to have two on one credit card to make it count. So we put it on one card. But, really was it necessary? At this level and hundreds of dollars at our table, the silliness will not bring me back.

    Phenomenal steak, great ambiance, however the service was average and tables were so sticky our arms and napkins stuck to them! Customer mentioned refusal to lay silverware on them. Bathroom floors even worse! Overall a little disappointed for the money.

    Went for anniversary dinner. Lobster bisque is always a favorite. Burbon glaze salmon was nicely prepared and cooked to perfection. The asparagus and potato hash was surprisingly good and nicely seasoned. Husband had the shrimp pasta and he liked it. He quite enjoyed the large piece of carrot cake. I had the peanut butter torte. Much smaller but very rich so was glad it was not too big. The pretzel crust balanced the richness nicely. Service was great as was wine. So glad we went as hadn't in years. Only got one biscuit each - would have liked a second but we left stuffed so probably good we didn't.

    Felt rushed, was in and out in about an hour, felt it should have been more of an experience. Steak was over cooked. Desserts were just ok. Overall expected 5 star top of the line steak/seafood joint and got barely a step above outback.

    This used to be my go to restaurant for a nice dinner but no more. The food and service quality has gone downhill. Restaurant smelled like sewer. No server for first 10 minutes. Got our drinks in a timely manner. We had just started our salads and they brought entrees. Took them back and then we had to wait awhile after we finished our salads. Filet had good flavor, was served medium rare as ordered but they were room temperature. Mashed potatoes were cold and asparagus was burnt. No bread was offered but we were able to get a second round of cocktails. Servers switched while we were there. The new server didn't know what we had ordered. Carrot cake was fabulous!
