We started with the ahi tuna appetizer, followed by the Caesar salad, black pepper encrusted sirloin feature, spiced brulle, and the apple pie. Everything was excellent.

We went at happy hour, which is all day Sunday, and had a wonderful meal of small plates. Their warm bread with honey butter or olive oil with white bean paste was amazing! Likewise, their bar drinks were excellent.

This restaurant never lets us down! Pasta dishes are reliably scrumptious; and menu items, overall, are consistently high quality. It's been a favorite of ours for at least 20 years. The decor is beautiful and service always friendly. Parking is super convenient.

For Sunday brunch the place was terribly noisy - both the music and the people. The food was barely OK, but much overpriced. No value here. Never again.

We had a wonderful friend dinner . Started with a glass of wine--happy hour Pinot Grigio and Merlot are perfectly fine! Followed by the grilled salmon salad which was perfect for a light, healthy dinner.. On a Wednesday nite it was the best for quiet visit with a friend and lovely dinner. We loved it all. GRand Street specializes in skilled & charming staff. They make it so pleasant.

Loved our food. Our server was a delight. Heuvos rancheros were delish! Others had the biscuits & gravy & eggs Benedict. All were very good! We’ll go back. It’s so nice to be able to get a reservation.

The food was great. We were entertaining friends from Minneapolis, Nasville and Wichita. One guest was told by our waiter Trey that her coffee was cold because she added cream. We all were catching up and the table was cleared and we went the buffet and came back with no silver. We said to Trey that we needed silver and he came back and just DROPPED forks on the table. It was as if we became a inco venience to him.

Pretty disappointing. Our waiter didn't know our brunch options and it took forever to order. A lot of confusion as we didn't want the brunch just a lunch menu.
It was my Dads 95th bday and no one did anything!!!
Also waited over 45 min for a cup of coffee due to no clean coffee cups!!!
Totally disappointed and will likely not return even though we had been there a lot previously.

My wife, adult daughter and I dined there before attending the Kansas City Rep. We elected to eat outside which was quickly filling up at 5pm. Enjoyed two Starters to share--really liked the egg rolls. I had a creative salad with tuna, my wife the steak salad (meat was a little chewy), and our daughter enjoyed her pasta meal. We split a cake desert. Service was speedy at the beginning but slowed as more diners arrived. We did get our Rep discount as season ticket holders (which the server reminded us about!) and arrived in time to be seated for the 7 pm curtain but I would suggest going earlier than 5pm for that time performance. Likely will return the next time the Rep is at the Spencer.

I have eaten there many times. Love the easy access for people with mobility problems. The convenient parking is a big plus. Usually, it is fairly quiet and easy to have conversation. This time, it was Sunday brunch, and was very noisy and hard to hear each other. That would be my only criticism. That's just a risk you take when you go to a restaurant. Was a bit surprised at the noise level this time. There were several big parties, and they were really noisy. Would not keep me from returning, but I will just note in my brain that Sunday brunch might not be the best time to go there for quiet conversation. Other than that--excellent experience.

We ate here on a Friday evening. It was a nice night and we were able to get a table outside. There was live music playing and it was entertaining and not too loud. That was a pleasant surprise. Our server was very personable and very professional. Sometimes when you eat out on a patio the service suffers, but not here. I had the pork chop and my companion had the steak. Both were delicious. A temperature issue with the steak was promptly and graciously addressed. We had some nice glasses of wine and took our time, listening to the music and enjoying the evening. Shared a peach cobbler kind of dessert which was good. Lovely evening.

OUR WAITRESS REALLY WANTED TO GET RID OF US! SHE LEFT THE CHECK WHEN SHE BROUGHT THE DESSERT AND THEN STARTED WITH A PUSH VACUUM AROUND THE TABLE. THERE WAS A TABLE OF 6 NEAR BY WITH ANOTHER WAIT PERSON THAT WAS NO WHERE CLOSE TO LEAVING.
WE WERE FLABERGASTED AND LEFT A TIP LESS THAN I USUAL DO. GOOD FOOD. OTHERWISE A NICE PLACE.
