Michael Forbes Bar & Grille Ratings and Reviews
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.
Went during restaurant week and they were not ready. Had only two waiters and the place was full. Waited over an hour for food. Food was good when we got it. People around us were complaining as well to the wait time. Someone did not plan ahead
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.
Excellent service and the salmon egg Benedict was fabulous. All fresh and piping hot. Great Bloody Marys. I have eaten at Michael Forbes many times for many years and it just keeps getting better. This visit constituted a reunion of old friends and we all enjoyed our meals and the excellent service. My only suggestion for improvement goes out to the Manager on site that day. He rushed about in a glum state throughout the lunch time. It’s as though he had a cone of stress around him. Eye contact and a smile will go a long way to putting everyone at ease!
Despite the double entry doors, the table we were originally seated at had cold air coming in, but they let us move to a table not directly by the door.
I ordered Chicken Fried Chicken, and my wife & mother-in-law ordered the 3-piece Fried Chicken to share. Instead, the server brought out two orders of Chicken Fried Chicken! She left the meal so they'd have something to eat, in the long time it took to prepare the fried chicken. Food was great when we got it. They never brought a manager over or made any bill adjustment.
We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was excellent including the amazing apple pie for dessert. The homemade chips and dip along with fresh-out-of-the-oven dinner rolls were a hit with everyone in our group. The only complaint we had was a cold draft which was quickly remedied when brought to our waiter's attention.
Our evening was a celebration of great news with lifetime friends. We each had different menu items, all very good and we'll presented. Our server was attentive, pleasant and friendly. Definitely on our list of "often" places to go. Thank you's to the entire staff.
They were out of 2 entrees, one of which was the special for the night. The waiter didn't bring the malt vinegar for the fish and chips. Some of our party had water and others didn't. We waited at least half an hour for anyone to wait on us. The food took very long to get to us after we ordered. It was an hour and a half before we were able to leave. Way too long.
This was the third year I have taken family to Michael Forbes for Thanksgiving brunch. The food is always fabulous. Our reserved table was ready for us upon arrival with water already poured. Wonderful service. Will return again next year and many times in between.
