We went out for my wife’s birthday on a Saturday night st 6:45. We had a reservation but we arrived early (6:25) but we able to be seated at our table immediately.

Great service, great food, great drinks. The bread with pureed brand is great for when you are waiting for apps. We had the flatbread, it’s like a full sized pizza. It was amazing and satisfied my sweet and salt tooth. The polenta was served like French fries with a great dip.

The salmon was very good, served with carrots, squash, rice and quinoa. My wife god the bone in pork chop and Mac and cheese. I tired it and it was soooo good.

Some cheap wine, great food (esp for the price) and just a few minutes from home. Will return and will bring friends.

The octopus and chorizo appetizer was big enough to be a meal - and quite delicious. Unfortunately their wine prices are higher than what I think is fair for the kind served. Our waiter must have been new. However, given the entire experience...I would definitely come back to try again.

Wanted to try a new restaurant and discovered this place. Arrived a little early so went to bar for a drink. Ended up eating dinner at bar to watch KU basketball game. Drinks were good, however my martini was served in champagne glass. Ordered special, walleye which was prepared well. My wife order trout dinner, again prepared well. Drinks were good and service was attentive, thanks Dillion. We’ll be back.

Seated within minutes of our reservation time, which was nice. Server brought us water and bread, then took our drink orders. 10 minutes later, he brought me the wrong wine. Another 15 minutes, I finally had the right wine, and then he took our order. 35 minutes after he took our order, our food finally came. Food was decent, but nothing to write home about. Our server acknowledged our wait times (he was very nice) each time he came to the table, but never offered anything to make up for it. We also never had a manager stop by. If we had, we would certainly have voiced our disappointment. Definitely not worth the $100 we spent on two meals and one glass of wine.

Food was good, but a bit over done with sauces. Recommend reservations unless eating after 730-8 as they are crowded.

They also cater private dining (wedding rehearsal dinners) so our food coming out was slower than I would have expected. It was delicious and hot.

Our waiter was nice but a bit scattered, and his section seemed really large. He brought over the wrong wine, someone incorrectly delivered butter to our table vs the one next to us who requested it...stuff like that, but it wasn’t the worst service and everything else came out ok.

Our table was by the bar area which was louder. Recommend seating away from that area if you want to hear the dining conversation. We didn’t want to sit in the bar for dinner, so that added 20 minutes onto our reservation, which was frustrating. I think in the future I’ll go somewhere else or sit elsewhere.

We went prior to attending a show. The meal was good, service great. There was a loud group sitting near us, so not the best ambience this time. Note: we sat in a booth where the seats were uncomfortably low, even for a taller person (5’10”). We did not notice this the last time when we sat in a booth.

The waiter confirmed each of our orders with how done we would like the meat. When it arrived the “pink in the center” he confirmed when ordering was not true for any of our dishes. Both steaks were instead well done and the salmon was cold, overcooked, tough, and lacked flavor. Not worth the prices charged for any of our meals.

Disappointed. I ate her with my family two months ago. Great service and Great food. So we decided to celebrate my Birthday here last Saturday. Our server seems to be a good person and was really trying but.....I think she really needed more training, support. The recommendation on wine was responded with what her other customers generally ordered. The main issue, I ordered a ribeye and got a filet. Sent it back. Figured out later how the mistake occurred (but it was still server error). When the ribeye came out it was under cooked. As my wife was half way through her meal and I could not find any server at that moment, I got up and went to the hostess to have the server come back to the table. By the time my steak came back my wife was nearly done and the steak was tough. The restaurant did comp the steak but no manager came by to apologize. Also there were issues with the bartender. Again they could use additional training as well.

We very rarely get a chance to go out to eat without the kids. We chose Grand Street because of the great reviews. The food was very good, but service was horrible. We had a reservation and arrived a few minutes early and got seated right a way. The food was great, but service was horrible. We had empty water glasses 3 times, our server never came by to ask if we needed anything after our food was delivered and we were never offered a 2nd glass of wine. When it came time for dessert, instead of asking if we would like to see the dessert menu, she said "you must be full, I assume you don't want dessert" I thought this was horribly tacky. Needless to say, we went somewhere else for dessert and another glass of wine. We won't be back.

My wife and I had been here 2 times previously and had a wonderful experience. Food and service were both outstanding.
I decided to setup a business dinner at this location on a Monday night.
Service was not good, we were rushed, the menu was very limited, and the food was not that great. I was embarrassed. I would not recommend for a week day dinner.

We were seated in the bar although we had reservations. Appetizers took a long time - waiter finally comped one app (of 3) then it showed up at the table shortly before our entree's. Reservation at 6:45 p.m. and the featured entree was not available.

Server was nice however rarely checked in on us.

We had a much better experience and food at the Grand Street location on Plaza (Kansas City, MO).
