My wife and I enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner with excellent friendly service. The dinner was perfect, from the goat cheese gnocchi to the perfectly cooked halibut. This place is a favorite of mine. Quiet and romantic with a nice ambiance.

My girlfriend and I had a great time at Room 39. The food options were very unique and the menu items are prepared for that day only. The noise level was very low, so we were able to conversate easily. The staff was kind and friendly and very helpful with the menu. Definitely hoping to go back soon!

We love food, and have several favorite restaurants around town. Room 39 is a favorite. Excellent food, cozy and romantic, great wine list, not too noisy, personal attention. Came here for our 10th anniversary, and more recently, for another celebration with friends. Good for a date or romantic meal.

The trout with seasonal vegetables was outstanding. My friend had the blended burger with fries and she ate it all. I sampled the fries and they were crispy and hot. Yum. At lunch the noise level goes up when there is a big crowd. Our server was great, they just needed another one of her. Just remember, sometimes slow food takes time.

Have dined here multiple times. Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner meal. They have a nice wine selection. Our server was efficient but aloof.
The real star of this restaurant in my opinion is breakfast.

Awesome burger on the Daily specials menu- “Blended burger”? It was beef, mushrooms and beets, served w/wonderful blue cheese on top and some small onion rings. WOW!!!

We did the tasting and everything was really good but it took a really long time in between courses. We didn't mind since this was our only plan but if we had something else it would be very annoying. From start to finish we were there 2.5 hours eating for reference. Our waitress was very apologetic and gave us a couple of drinks while we waited.

We ate here on a recent Friday night. Ordered off the tasting menu, so we could try some new items on the menu. The new tempura peppers appetizer was tasty. My companion always does the gnocchi which he loves. We had nice glasses of wine, great service and a relaxing evening. Parking can be challenging at times, so allow for that.

We started going to Room 39 (midtown) years ago and we make it a part of every visit to Kansas City. The food is invariably interesting and the people are invariably kind.

If I lived closer, I would be here all the time. We came here for an early dinner on a Saturday night and were the only ones in the restaurant. It has an upscale farm to table feel that isn't pretentious and makes you feel at home. From the handpicked flowers on the table to the local art on the wall, every detail is inviting.

Our waiter was incredible and handled my every question with ease. He had an excellent understanding of the menu and ingredients and gave great tips on menu items, highlighting the local ingredients.

I did the 4 course tasting menu so I could have a sampling of multiple items. The flavors of the gazpacho were intriguing to say the least (beets, tomatoes and a touch of heat) and the heirloom tomato salad was devoured. The goat cheese gnocchi was just okay in my opinion (the goat cheese was pretty overpowering), but the halibut was cooked perfectly.

The only item that disappointed was the garlic shrimp. The rice was out of this world but the shrimp were overcooked and just downright unappetizing (I couldn't get the aftertaste out of my mouth).

I will definitely be back. Service and atmosphere were top notch and the food highlights local ingredients with an interesting flair.

Great ambiance, attentitive wait staff, excellent food! If you’re looking for a fun place in a fun neighborhood, check out Room 39. Permission is granted to park in the Chipotle or Jazz parking lots if needed, which adds to the convenience of your experience!

Very enjoyable. We were early for our reservation but they took us right in. We had a concert to attend and they were cognizant of that and served up quickly. I wanted another glass of wine but was reluctant because we had to leave so my server suggested a half glass. It was perfect!

Room 39 Midtown will always hold a special place in my heart because of the waiter we had the first time my hubby and I ate there. He whisked the menu away as it was on fire yet my husband and I didn't notice! The ambiance is great! The wait staff are tremendous! This time, the food wasn't as good as in the past but it was still a great evening.

It was the perfect place for a small celebration, dinner, and good conversation. It is very cozy, the music was just right (not too loud), and the service was excellent. The menu offers a wonderful selection of seasonal choices. And all was deliciously prepared. We enjoyed the recommended wine pairing. Dessert was delightful, a delicate cheesecake with floral hints, and a mango puree. We hope to return very soon.

The food is always amazing and other times the service has been also. Our waiter lost focus about half way through the meal and had to find someone to get more wine and coffee. Also the
tables close to the door get a blast of the outdoors when patrons come and go.

Have had dinner here twice and breakfast once. Our meals were consistently excellent. Last night our dinner was one of the most memorable in recent years. The dessert of poached figs in red wine were sublime. Clearly a restaurant run by those who care a great deal about food and wine. Servers are friendly, helpful, and unpretentious. Dining room is relatively intimate, a storefront along 39th St. White tablecloths at dinner. Art by local artists. Has not been crowded (at all) on our three visits. Very highly recommended.
