Rye - Leawood Ratings and Reviews
We booked the reservation as a big birthday celebration and the waitress or the hostess never acknowledged it or asked if we were celebrating something. Not a huge deal, but even just a well-wish would have been nice. The service was on the slower side but we were not in any hurry so it didn't bother us. The food was awesome. It was Monday night steak night and we got an incredible value on our meals. I thought it was really loud in there. We definitely had to talk loud to hear each other (and I'm under 30 and not hard of hearing.)
Not sure if it was just a bad night by the kitchen, we have eaten at Rye probably 20 times and we have always had an exceptional meal. Last night we ordered steaks, all 4 came out cold, sent them back, steaks came back again, warm, not hot, but warm, but the meat was tough and rubbery. Rye staff was very apologetic and accommodating, so I hope it was just a bad night...
Our server was great and made good recommendations. He was solicitous but not over the y
Top. The food was great. I had a steak that has to go down as one of the 10 best I ever ate. My date had the ribs and said they were a great example of KC ribs and were as good as they get. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were seated immediately. We did not have dessert but we stayed and talked and finished our bottle of wine until 9:30 and never felt unwanted.
We enjoyed dinner with our son when he was in town for the holidays. He lives in the DC area so good restaurants are abundant. I wanted to impress him with the KC food scene and Rye did the job. We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered and we ordered a lot. The steaks were excellent and the fried chicken was so juicy and flavorful. From drinks to desserts we were impressed. Will definitely go again
This was the worst food I have ever had at Rye. My kale salad was just large pieces of gritty kale with very little barley , cranberries, and apples so thinly sliced I couldn't pick them up with my fork. My friend had the chicken salad and said the chicken was mushy. Won't be returning any time soon.
Have dined at the restaurant serveral times in the past and have enjoyed. Unfortunately, Rye missed the mark this time. Our party of four was seated promptly but waited ten minutes for server to make initial hello and fill water glasses. Placed an appetizer , coffee & one mix drink order. Server showed back up about ten minutes later to take our order but with none of the ordered items. Coffee was delivered by another server a few moments later.
Main entree arrived about 15 minutes later. The appetizer was delivered as our waitress was placing the entrees. No apology made the the item failed to show before the main meal. Reminded the server we were still missing a bar drink. Mid meal the drink arrived by another server. Coffee refill was never offered.
Saw what appeared to be a manager circulating around the tables but never stop to ask how our meal was.
Not in a hurry to return.
Rye was terrific. We sat and talked with friends for quite awhile. We apologized for keeping the table so long and Rye was very gracious about it (there wasn't anyone waiting but I still felt bad about tying up the table). I highly recommend it!! The food was delicious and the server was delightful.
We meet friends at Rye this past Friday evening and were disappointed at the lack of information concerning your gluten free selection. When asking our server she was unsure and didn't find out the information and return to us. It was difficult to order a meal and have a pleasurable evening when we weren't sure if the food would cause my friend to become ill. I expected more from a restaurant of your reputation.
I took a friend from out of town to dinner. Food was great, service was exceptional. I ordered a piece of pumpkin pie for dessert to share. The portion was a sliver, half the size of a normal piece. I told the waiter the pie was excellent but for the price they charged, was too small. He said he would tell the manager - simply meant it as a suggestion. The manager was apologetic & sent me home with another piece - nice gesture. I also think the price of their sides is high - $8.50 - about double what the Bristol charges for theirs - $4-5.
Food and service was Great!! Even with a reservation got put in the farthest corner of the restaurant in the overflow room. Never been sat back there. Definitely not the greatest ambience back there. Much better in the dining room area with view of the open kitchen and better vibes. With that being said the service was still great! Would definitely wait a little longer for the main dining room area of you are going to Rye.
Thanks for a great time & great food! The fried chicken is as good as Grandma’s and we had a wonderful birthday meal together as friends and coworkers! Rachel was very attentive and did a great job taking care of us! What a blessing this was! We will be back!
Was out of two of the dishes on the. menu, wait staff failed to inform us of this until it was time to order. Had to come back twice as we had to review the menu twice. I had the pork chop, way undercooked. Wife had chicken with a loaded bake potato. The cheese on the potato was not melted and potato felt cold. For the price, it was a complete disappointment. Not a place we will visit again.
