Tremendous venue, allowing students to learn how to cook and run a restaurant. We need more places like this in town.

A unique dining experience to learn about food and special ways of preparing it.
Our favorite about Broadmoor Bistro is that high school age people are learning about food for life and employment skills in an educational field usually presented at a later age.
We love touring the kitchen to see how your students learn in this atmosphere.
Hurray to your chefs and teachers.

We went to the location several times on 83rd and really enjoyed ourselves. We were disappointed in the new location because it is not as intimate. It's more like a large cafe with nice food.

All 3 of us enjoyed our food and our orders were all different. Our friend who is gluten sensitive did have a difficult time ordering. We had 2 servers working our table and there was continuous confusion.
When they eventually brought what was supposed to be the first of two appetizers, my husband got both of his appetizers, my friend got one she had asked to change and I got nothing. The 2 servers who brought them to the table could not tell us what they were so we had to guess. By the time we figured it out, they were gone and didn’t realize I didn’t have an appetizer. Eventually I got my soup which was very good. I had to ask for my second appetizer. a simple salad, and by the time they brought it, our entrees were also on the way. I had only a few bites of salad before my entree arrived. One of our servers took our dessert order which didn’t arrive quickly. Before they arrived, our 2nd server came to the table asking if we were ready for our check.
The food was good; the service needs a lot of work. We were at the restaurant for more than 2 hours because the service was so slow. Most of the evening the restaurant was not crowded. Neither server took responsibility for our table or for the really poor service. I understand they are students and as someone who worked as a server through college, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. But the Bistro managers and educators need to do a better job of training and supervising the servers. We won’t be going back soon.

I was amazed with the spectacular food. The menu was diverse and beautiful. I loved the duck, cooked perfectly, the presentation was stunning. Great value, you get so much food for the price. The students are all working so hard and it is noticeable. Kudos to the program.

My first time to take 3 1/2 hours to finish a dinner, it said it was a guess chef but I think we are not that enjoy those I guess you may call it a “Fusion Food” ! But they just not match! Those plates are huge but all those 5 courses are as tiny as sample plate ! I am assume that we all should check the menu before we brought tickets, Although my husband not a huge lamb fan but I thought we need to have it no matter what. But then I saw a lady beside us can change her 2oz lamb entree dish to a 10 oz salmon dish ! Really ?

THe food did not live up to the excellent menu writing. The portions were only 1 or 2 small bites,but were presented on such huge plates it seemed like even less food.The main entre of lamb rib eye was very rare and barely warm. These are students learning, however this was a special dinner and we were surprised at what was presented by a visiting chef. We will give BB a second chance on a regular evening.

We saw a piece about it on public tv, and it looked so nice, that we decided to try it out.
The culinary students have a wonderful place to learn and practice.
We were very impressed with the food, presentation, and friendliness of the students.
They did a great job, and we will certainly return. They were very busy, so we understood
the time it took to serve everyone. Enjoyed the evening.
So glad we saw the tv presentation.
Worth the money.

Jack was a great server. Outstanding value. Seated right away. Chefs checked discreetly on us. I am astonished that my teens were allowed slight changes in the menu. It was kind and I did not expect it. The new design for our district culinary school bistro is as lovely as the old was, and we will be back. Thank you for the gift of Wednesday's to our community! (Also we love the coffee hours on week days !)

The Broadmoor Bistro is staffed by students from the Shawnee Mission School District who are pursuing a career in culinary arts. It is a very impressive facility serving high end food. I would encourage anyone to go and support these kids who are getting an excellent learning opportunity to following their dreams.

Food was delicious, as always. Presentation outstanding. Opening night, I expect a few hit and misses. Students assisted each other. The timer on the automatic blind did not take into account the location of the sun for diners facing west or those seated at the north end facing south. Upon our request, this was remedied. First glass of iced tea was lukewarm and without ice. Thereafter, they were on ice. Of course we will return!

This was our first visit to Broadmoor Bistro and we're sad we didn't try it before! Tonight was the second to last meal for the season, but we will absolutely go back in the fall. Our favorite dishes were the lamb, endive and watercress salad, and key lime tart. Everything was excellent and a fantastic deal!

We are sad because the last dining for this spring will be April 12th as this is the culinary arts instructional program for the Shawnee Mission School District. They serve only on Wednesday late afternoons and early evening. Outstanding food for a modest price---4 courses for $30 (paid by credit card) and tip (paid on the $30 by cash). I had the grouper (a sub), salad, ham/cheese plate and a fabulous banana chocolate desert that's hard to describe. Wonderful! My wife had the lamb, broccoli salad, tomato soup and same desert. Go before they close for the season--or wait until next fall!

Our server was quite attentive and a pleasure to talk with. The starters were outstanding and presented a wonderful variety of choices. The entrees again offered diverse choices and very tasty. We each had a different dessert and each of us raved about our choices. Each course was artistically presented and each dish attractively presented.
Broadmore Bistro is a great value and gives the students a "real world" experience and each excelled. Great program in the Shawnee Mission School District.

Again a wonderful new 4 course fixed price menu for just $30! This is their last menu for the year which ends April 12th. I had the chicken and my wife the lamb--both excellent with innovative sides. We both had the tomato bisque but different salads--mine was endive and pea sprouts. The deserts were limited to three choices this time but excellent. Mine was the cherry tort with ice cream. This is the culinary arts restaurant for the Shawnee Mission School District. The food is always unique--like a gourmet restaurant but at a fraction of the cost. You must charge the meal. The tip needs to be in cash. Only open Wednesday nights. The venue is in a school but the restaurant looks like a regular upscale restaurant. Education never tasted this good!
