Waitress new I was pregnant from speaking with my husband and when I came to the table I asked about if she recommended any non alcoholic drink and she said I would be fine having wine and that my dr would probably say it was ok. The remaining service was just ok. Nothing like our first time here.

Took my wife for brunch and absolutely loved it.
The staff was extremely curtious and the chef was there to answer any questions. I have recommended everyone I’ve talked to since our brunch to go and experience it for themselves.

Ignite has a great atmosphere ....warm, energetic, hip. Must be really great in the warmer months with great outside space. I will come again but willorder differently. Shrimp was so so and overpriced for six shrimp, bread and some boiled potatoes.

This was first time we ever ate out for Thanksgiving. Maybe we got there too early or too late; too late to be brunch or lunch and not quite dinner time but food that should have been hot was not and food was not very appetizing looking, like we hit some weird hotel brunch thing and food was picked over. I was looking forward to prime rib that was just carved and warm and juicy but it was just meh....We also looked up dress code too thinking it might be fun to dress festive but we saw a bunch of jeans and hoodies. Overall under impressed...maybe just the time of day but best part was none of us over ate :-(

Thanksgiving dinner I felt was average at best. I’ve eaten here several time before and had very good meals. But buffet serving is not what they do well.

Went for Brunch on Sunday. Sandwich entre's were ok, but nothing special. The buffet portion was far below expectations for the price & classy ambiance. Most of the hot containers were empty or near empty the 1st time thru. The cut fruit was EXCELLENT as well as the raw shrimp. The rest was average.

This place---the FOOD- is amazing. If you're not big on flavors, you won't like it. I'm from the South, and we are harsh food critics. I've also lived in KC for 17 years. Unless you go really high end, it can be hard to find interesting, cooked from scratch, eclectic American fare---with a wide range of flavors. I live right around the corner and am thrilled with this place. Brunch was AMAZING. Don't change a thing!!! Love it, and we'll be back!!!

Food was not well prepared. Meats were not cooked correctly, vegetables mushy and cold. Service was very bad. Took forever to get drinks. And we paid a lot for all that!

We had a group of 9 and enjoyed where they put us in the restraurant so we could visit. The only thing I would suggest is to please have salt and pepper on the table so we didn't have to search for it.

I have been here many times for brunch. But this experience was less than satisfactory. The buffet was very picked over and was not refilled for an extended period of time. Some better variety would be nice too. There are a lot of pastries and sweet items, but not enough savory items. Maybe add more breakfast casserole type items. But the staff was fabulous as always!

The food was very good as was the wine. Our server was good and the place was impressive. Only complaint was it was too loud making it difficult to converse, but we understand young people enjoy the noise. We will return, but will try to avoid Saturday night. It’s a wonderful addition to the area!

It was cold in the restaurant, had to wear my coat the entire time.
Also, we reserved our table on OpenTable, and when we got there, our table was in the bar area. I wish we could specify bar or restaurant section. It was our anniversary and would have rather sat in the nice area of the restaurant.

The food was great, however the whiskey special drink was a bit bland for a berry blend. Salmon and steak were outstanding, and although the venue was not very full, meals for the party of four didn’t arrive at the same time, and drink service was similarly off timing.

Still I would highly recommend this establishment as the service was good and the food outstanding, very good for a date or business gathering. The ambiance with the live fire sconces was great

We came as a family and expected a more sophisticated atmosphere. Similar to J. Alexander’s. We came to try the steak, but sadly, they were out of the beef tenderloin! Before 7pm. I get that things happen, but we chose not to stay. We weren’t impressed with the other menu options.
