We have always enjoyed the food at Story but sadly think this restaurant is on the way out. Wine pours and food portions are small and pricey. We were nearly the only table.
I loved my halibut. Wish I could make it so well. I would also like the recipe for the dressing on the green salad, which I have every time! My husband and I share the dessert of ice cream and sorbets. Given that this was Mother's Day dinner and the restaurant was packed, we thought the service was efficient and personable. We enjoyed chatting with Murray. Thanks for a nice evening.
We like Story, been many times, but this was not a good experience for Mother’s Day. We were seated 30 mins late for our reservation and the food took an EXTRAORDINARY long time to come.
Mother’s Day was not a good day to eat at this place. It took too long to be served even though we made a reservation at 5pm...
We did a new pre fix menu with wine pairings. Great wine choices to go with the food. Great menu
As always, it was great. Great drinks. Great food. Great service
Wonderful as always
This was the worse experience ever for the Cinco de Mayo dinner. We had made a request for the special shrimp tacos in advance. We got in to a super noisy place and were told that they were out of shrimp tacos. This place is super expensive (rated the most expensive restaurant in the KC area), very noisy, with cramped up seating and very sub par service. The food portions are such that unless you want to spend 300$ on a dinner for 2 , you should eat and go. The only reason why we have been going to this place is that we did find some of the food very tasty. I guess we won't be parting with any more money, for sub par service and tiny portions of tasty food in a noisy restaurant.
Really enjoyed the Cinco de Mayo assortment. Super fun and festive!
The food, service, and ambiance was perfect, as usual.
Stylish and consistently good! Starters were awesome. The veal dish with morel sauce was great but too much salt. Not worth complaining about while the kids were getting impatient.
Story never disappoints. It is located in an unassuming shopping area, but stepping inside is elegant and instantly calming.
The food is superb, and the wine pairings are always perfectly tuned.
Whether for craft cocktails and a light bite at the hi-tops, or to explore the full menu, we will go back again and again.
Had a great date night with my husband! We ordered the prix fixe menu and every course was amazing. I wish we would have tried the wine pairings, in retrospect. Next time!
Was great as always
We had lots of fun, in addition to a memorable dinner. The kids menu was varied and delicious, so even the children had a wonderful tasting adventure.
I planned to have the special,lake trout, but learned that they were dredged in advance in flour and pistachios. I switched my order to the chicken and it was so good, I didn't mind. My husband said the lake trout was also good. One minor issue: the mint sorbet, which I've had twice, is delicious but icy and hard to eat,
Always love your fish!
Always love the food and appreciate the Sunday specials
Very nice service. The atmosphere was nice. Service was excellent and food superb. Price point was reasonable.
Incredible food, amazing service, and will always be our special place for our anniversary. The swordfish was perfectly prepared, and the doughnuts for dessert, how could you go wrong?
The Ridge wine dinner was superb. As always Chef Carl’s food was outstanding, & the red wines were excellent (the white got mixed reviews at our table)
As always, Story is one of the better dining options in KC
Excellent and consistent food. Professional and knowledgeable wait staff. We have eaten their several times and have never been disappointed.
waiter had a flippant attitude. We made reservation for the Sunday night dinner and he said we should of been in line at 5:00 that it ran out in one hour. Pour service and bait and switch advertising. Have always enjoyed this restaurant but now will not go back and will spread the word. We live in PV…disappointed !!!
First time we've been there and thought it was very good.
First time to eat at Story. I loved the playful menu items. Rather enjoyable and i would definitely go again.
We sat on the patio during a charming evening. The cork fee is high ($35) & they have to check your bottle. Except that, food is incredible. The veal is to die for
We loved Story. The food was delicious and we look forward to coming back. The service was good too and the noise was not too bad. We are old and don't hear as well as we used to.
Thank you for a really nice evening.
Start with the duck empanadas -- fantastic! The short ribs are incredible! If you go on Wednesday, I'd truly recommend at least one person in the group getting the fried chicken -- the best I've ever had. Right now is soft shell crab season and that is just magical. All of the desserts are good -- the German chocolate cake only has toasted coconut on top, which is an amazing option for the coconut challenged folks.
It was my first time to try the Sunday special. Value and flavor were outstanding, as was presentation. The only thing I'd say is that the waiter told us the chef liked to serve the steaks medium-rare and we wanted medium. Some of both our steaks were closer to medium-rare but I felt like I'd offend someone if I sent mine back. I could eat most of it though, and the service and value were all top-notch.
AWESOME - loved The entire experience - everything tasted just perfectly prepared to a “t!” Out of this world!
Kevin, the server was attentive, knowledgeable and respectful at the same time!
We cannot believe this is a neighborhood place - we feel transported to some big city, but absolutely love that Story is in our own backyard!
We cannot wait to return!
Thank to all the hardworking, creative folks at Story!
Only disappointment was the smoked duck empanadas-- not enough duck filling and too heavy barbecue sauce flavor.
Went to Story tonight for soft shell crabs. We were not disappointed! Started with an octopus, chanterelles, poached egg and crispy potatoes app. Excellent! Well cooked octopus, extra crispy potatoes with an egg that had a runny yolk.
Crab cake out between crushed fingerling potatoes, cauliflower, and angel hair slaw. Deep fried lightly, crisp the crab meat was tasty and delicate. Wait staff made an excellent Chablis pairing for us. We will make this an annual dinner!
The food was delicious! I would not recommend the steak tartare, but everything else we had was delicious, we all especially loved the halibut it was fantastic.
We always enjoy Sunday specials. This time it was cod, which my husband liked, and I took advantage of the first serving of soft shell crab. I appreciate the chef's willingness to make this dish gluten and lactose free for me.
It was our first time. Not alot of people. Nice but not impressive for the price point. duck empanadas were amazing. entre for my wife and i was ok, good taste but not wow. Her chicken was ok, she thought maybe a tad undercooked. My rib meat was very tender and great taste but for me a bit more fatty than i was expecting. Thats on me though, didn't think ahead. Overall it was ok.
The short rib dish is one of the best things I've had anywhere in the KC metro.
We always enjoy our dinners at Story. Food is excellent!
Fabulous experience, Carl is one of our favorite Chef/Restaurant owners not just in Kansas City, but we believe competes with the finest chefs in the world. Ravioli was incredible! Service truly a cut above. Well done Story!
We had an attentive waiter. Our food was delicious. My husband had the short rib and I had Mahi-mahi. I would suggest these dishes. A wonderful meal and we will be back.
Enjoyed the prix fixe menu with the wine pairing and overall, it was fantastic! I didn't really enjoy the peas plate, with the endive and radish (it was a bitter to me) but other than that, everything else was very good and the service was delightful. I will definitely return!
