Michael Forbes Bar & Grille Ratings and Reviews
We LOVE Michael Forbes for brunch. The à la carte menu is one of our favorites in KC. The eggs Benedict’s never disappoint... especially the new prime rib bennie. And always opt for a 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy to share first. Service is great & it’s never too crowded, even during a game.
My two girlfriends and I had a GREAT time. Our server, Jenny, was the best part! We nicknamed her "Jenny the Gem". On her invitation, we returned Saturday morning for Bloody Marys - they were very good! We had a wonderful time then, too. Very friendly atmosphere - lots of "regulars" that added to the fun.
My husband and I went to Michael Forbes for a date night. Unfortunately, we were sat in the bar section. There was a basketball game on and people were yelling at the television. We would have had a much better experience if we could have sat in the restaurant section but it was Restaurant Week, so we were just happy to have gotten reservations on a Saturday night.
Loved everything about my experience here. Food was great. Served hot and in a timely manner. Jake, our server, provided excellent service. Drinks were great and reasonably priced. Ambience was nice and cozy. I will definitely be back. Was worth the drive from Lawrence.
We came here for Restaurant Week 2018 and enjoyed the dinner very much! There were lots of options to choose from, including many gluten free options that were clearly marked. Our server was friendly and prompt. I would definitely recommend Michael Forbes to anyone!
The food was stellar. Our only complaint was the seating. We were placed at a table right by the kitchen. We think this is because we were there as part of restaurant week. Would have understood if the place was jammed, but we were there at 5:45 and there were plenty of tables available. My wife had the broccoli cheese soup, all though is was very good it had only one broccoli flower. The server didn't ask if we wanted another beverage and he did pass buy us several times. Service was okay, but once again felt like we were being rushed through the courses because we were not paying full price. All that said, the quality of the food will bring us back.
Our server Roxy was fantastic! Went here for the first time because their Restaurant Week menu sounded delicious...and it WAS! Amazing Gorgonzola Steak Rigatoni! Unbelievable Sour Cream Apple pie! Even the coffee was good here! We would absolutely go back & we certainly plan to! Excellent service & food!
We went for lunch during Restaurant Week and it was packed, with only 2 servers working. Needless to say we waited around 45+ minutes to finally ordered our food. My 4 year-old was with us and she was starving by the time the food came (she kept telling me she was hungry while we waited to order).
The food was delicious, and we understood about lack of servers. But next time (if there is a next time) we might just avoid going there during RW.
By far, the best weekend brunch spot in Kansas City! And we have been to many of them over the years. The food, the service, the ambience, the selection, and the prices, or unbeatable. This is our new favorite brunch place for Kansas City!
Also, we’ve been to Michael Forbes for dinner and lunch many times, and have loved every dish we’ve had. The quality of the food has never let us down. You will not be disappointed!
This is the second time we have gone to this restaurant. Both times the food has been great and the service has been terrible. There was another waiter waiting on the other tables and he was outstanding. He even helped us out.
The rolls are to die for. And the fried chicken is excellent.
