We were a party of 3 for Restaurant Week. The soup and desserts we chose were wonderful and service was too--especially on such a busy night. We each chose one of the three entres offered. The fish and beef dishes were excellent (I tried bites of both) but the vegetarian flatbread was tough and scarcely covered by the vegetables. So disapppointing. I made the poor choice that night.

My wife and I have both dined at this restaurant in the past. Our current visit happened to coincide with restaurant week, however we were not dining there specifically for that reason. I felt that the ambience was outstanding. This is one of the high points of the restaurant. The wine selection is excellent. The food selections were very good as well. I wish that they had more vegetarian options , as well as saltwater fish options, but other than that, our dining experience was terrific, and one of the best dining experience weeks we’ve had thus far this year. This restaurant is in our freezer rotation and will continue to be Sue. We would also definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an elevated dining experience.

My friend & I went to Room 39 for KC Restaurant week. I'd heard good things about the menu from friends and we were not disappointed!! Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and didn't let our drinks get empty. I had the mussels, Swordfish & apple struedel which was all amazing. I have already told a few friends how amazing it was!

Room 39 is one of KC's hidden gem restaurants although they have been around for 13 or 14 years. It's located in the hip 39th street district. They offered some unique cocktails along with favorites and an extensive wine list. The service was top-notch, friendly and informative. We did the tasting menu which was plenty of food and a good value. I like that most items are sourced locally and the menu changes frequently.

We dined here on a recent Friday night. It was nearly full which is always nice to see. We did the tasting menu, so we had several dishes. I had the pumpkin soup and my companion had the clam chowder. He had the gnocchi and i had the risotto, then pork chop and steak for entrees. We each had nice glasses of wine. The food was well-prepared but the choices were somewhat limited and several items have been on the menu a long time, so the menu seems a little stale. Our service was excellent as always and we had a nice dinner, but not as different as we were hoping for. Parking can be a challenge, so plan for that.

So wonderful. Love 4 course tasting & wine pairing. Love trying new wines. The goat cheese gnocchi was divine! First Time I’ve had gnocchi that compared to a small family restaurant in FL, about 25 years ago. Ricotta gnocchi was the lightest, most flavorful I’ve had, until Sat night.

Every time I eat at Room 39 (Midtown), it's always superb. Most recently we sat at the bar (Andrew was excellent to us), enjoyed mixed drinks, nice wine, great recommendations by Andrew; the food was creative and excellent; desert was incredible. The people at Room 39 (Midtown location) are always so pleasant and accommodating .. we had some last minute changes to our reservation and they were quick to accommodate (I realize that can't happen every time, but they were happy to accommodate us). I HIGHLY recommend Room 39 (Midtown location).

Never a disappointment--Room 39 is simply bliss. One of us started with our favorite, Milagro Cocktail, and the other enjoyed the seasonal Pear Cider (delicious). On to a fabulous pork/poleta/okra plate of totally comforting food with a beautiful wine--and frankly, I don't remember what my husband had, but I know he just loved it. Play list also excellent and added conversational topics for two people who never run out of things to discuss. Thanks and we'll see you soon.

We ate here on a Saturday night. We go here for the food because we get menu items here that are different and delicious. And that's what we got. We did the tasting menu and started with potato soup. I had the salad with black walnuts and my companion had the potato gnocchi, one of his favorites. I had the duck entree and he had the pork chop entree. Both were delicious. For dessert i had paw paw bread and he had the chocolate panna cotta. Everything was perfectly prepared and sized appropriately. Service was excellent. Wine selection is pretty diverse. Parking can be a challenge. There's a small lot and then on-street parking, so allow time. But it is always worth the trip.
