Food was good, the whole bird was tender and juicy. The wood fired salmon was great as were the farro and vegetables. This restaurant is pricey, there are better places to eat for the money. The service was good. Love the decor and the ambiance. I would go here for restaurant week and happy hour to try out the food for less money.

Our server, Theresa was delightful and even though it was a buffet brunch she continued to check on us and kept our water glasses filled. While our out-of-town guests did acknowledge that it was loud in the restaurant they were very impressed with our brunch selection site and the food.

Very non-stressful and delicious experience.

Everything was excellent but the restaurant is very loud which makes it a bit more difficult to converse with your table.

We had a good experience at Ignite Wood Fire Grill but had to wait over 45 minutes for our food. Our server told us that the food was taking a bit longer due to the outdoor patio being open. She did bring us some muffins to much on while we waited.

The food was good.

The service (Michelle was our server) was attentive without being overbearing and quite good! She was friendly, made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our meals and is very friendly. Nicely done, Michelle! The food, a real measure of a restaurant, was also quite good. I had a pasta which was flavorful, appropriately and wonderfully cooked al dente. My wife and our friend had scallops which they said were also excellent. They had,one of my favorite seasonal beers on tap...Boulevard’s Irish Ale and we had dessert which was wonderful too. We’ll be back. Almost forgot the front of the house manager, Daniel, who was great and very personable. We loved everything about Ignite and we will definitely be back.

Disappointing. This was our 2nd visit, will most likely not return. we have a birthday dinner for my mother. the service was slow, the room was very noisy. When the food was served we were not provided with steak knives. Really? This is a steak joint, right? I had to get up and walk back to the kitchen to request the proper cutlery to eat our food (while it was getting cold). My poor mother, who has arthritis, was sawing away on her porkchop with a butter knife.

It seemed to take forever to get our server to box up our leftovers. The server saw the cards and gifts on the table and asked if we were celebrating something and we told her yes, it was a birthday, so the server handed out the dessert menus and asked if we wanted to buy dessert for the birthday girl. Seriously? Our total tab was around $250 with tip for 5 people and they can't offer a complimentary birthday dessert? I told her, "no thanks, we have cake back at the house".

This was our fourth trip to Ignite and was our best experience there. The scallops are wonderful, although spicy (and no warning of that on the menu). The lamb gnocchi was only so-so. Don't need to try again. One complaint is that there are very few local beers on tap. With all the excellent breweries in KC, you would expect more local beers, like Blvd Tank Seven. Our main complaint is that this restaurant is extremely noisy, compounded by the fact that they play dreadful music way too loud.

We had excellent service. Food was good, but not good enough for the prices, which are high. I wish I had tried a steak, but I went with the pork shank. It was good, not great. A little bland.

The food was good but lukewarm and our server took a LONG time and then wasn't very friendly. We went with my husband's parents and it was a bit difficult to hold a conversation due to how loud it was. However, the restaurant is beautiful and their menu had a few things I'd like to go back and give it a second try.

Wife and I went for a nice meal, have been here several times now and it’s always good. My only complaint is the cost to amount of food ratio can be disappointing, but the quality is definitely there. It’s a very cool establishment and the staff are friendly and attentive. I’ll be going back.

The food and atmosphere was very good. I had the filet and wife had the salmon. Both were excellent. In fact, I can't remember when I had a filet that good. It was cooked to perfection. Friends of ours had the pork chop and said it was outstanding. Service was very good as well. We will definitely be going back.

Our server was not good. This is actually the second time we have had him (older gentleman) and we will request someone else next time we go. My husband asked which beers were available on tap. He only gave him three options. We felt hurried through the entire meal. He cleared the cornbread muffins before we had a chance to try them.

Other issue was that we were sitting at a half circle booth close to the kitchen. It was so dark we could not read the menus. :(

Food was very good.
