You made my wife and I’s Valentine’s Dinner SO special. Her favorite flowers, favorite food, favorite atmosphere. We loved it all. I think the only thing that struggled was our server- we waited long for refills and someone else actually got them for us. Also, he was slightly awkward, indirect, and slightly passive. So probably just strengthening the servers would be a recommendation. Besides that it was phenomenal. We will be back!

Our reservation was for 630pm and we were not seated until 7. Our server knew nothing about wine and everything was overpriced for what exactly the place is. The hostess was dressed like she could care less and the overall experience felt disappointing. The food tasted good and our server was nice, but again, not worth the money. Won't be going back.

Jim is our waiter. He waited on us when we were on our first date. We always go back to Tannin's for special occasions. This is where I also proposed to my wife. So, obviously we love Tannin's and Jim! He is a fantatic waiter.

My husband and I had the Valentine's Day tasting menu. For our entree, we chose the lamb chops which were delicious. The only complaint we had was that the knives were not sharp enough to cut the meat. The waiter brought out steak knives that were dull and we struggled eating but opted not to say anything due to the restaurant being so busy.

Overall the portions were very generous. I had the chocolate mousse and my husband had the peanut butter cookie. He was surprised and disappointed at how small it was. It looked a little chintzy but he enjoyed it nonetheless.

When we come back to Kansas City, this will definitely be one of our top options. The service was great.

It's always a great time at Tannin. Not only is the cuisine divine, but the ambiance of the restaurant wraps around you and lets you escape to a metropolitan mindset.

This is my favorite place to take a visiting-from -out-of-town friend to for a treat. I can always count on an excellent experience, and it provides just the sort of celebratory tone you want when you’re treating yourself. I really wish I could remember the waiter’s name. He has waited on me from time to time and always does a tremendous job. I’m going to find it out and edit this review to include it because he deserves a special mention. A fun note – they change up their menu more than most restaurants, so you never feel like you’ve run out of things to try. Piece of advice – try the soup! It’s always unique and flavorful.

The food and wine lists are amazing! We started with the cheddar and bacon stuffed sausage which was phenomenal and a great size for 2 to share. I had the wagyu beef burger which was outstanding and my husband had the ribeye, which he said was the best ribeye he's had in quite some time. We ended the night with the chocolate stuffed peanut butter cookies which were just heaven! The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We had Abby as a server and she certainly made our first visit here even more memorable. Her attention to detail and recommendations were spot on. We can't wait to come back!

The food is fabulous, and the vibe very good, as is the atmosphere, the wine steward, and service. My only problem was that we learned after we sat down that the price fixe menu featured on the website menu is apparently unavailable on "concert nights" (which I guess means any time a band is playing anywhere downtown maybe?? Unclear.) After a lot of back and forth with the waiter, who was good, I was told we could get the price fixe menu even though it was not on the menu we were handed. Not sure what happened, but our total price was about $40-$50 more than it would have been on the price fixe, and this place is not cheap, especially if you get the wine pairing with dinner - which is really one of the main reasons why you go here to begin with. So, in the end, our dinner (two of us, one cocktail each, wine pairing (one full, one half), and quasi "price fixe" with starter, entrée and desert), cost close to $300. If you are looking to spend that kind of money, you will be very pleased with your meal and your experience.

The food was good and our server did a very good job - very friendly and personable. The main issue was that the food took way too long to be served - we were under time constraints because we were attending a show which we said at the very beginning.

Service was terrible. Didn’t ask for our order for 50 min after we sat. Another server had to get it. Annoyed when I didn’t care for the wine. Glass smelled dirty. Kept taking our food to another table and theirs to ours. Just crappy service

We took advantage of a special they were offering with two entrees, you receive a bottle of wine with $25 value. We chose the Malbec which was a good choice. The food was great and our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Looking forward to my next visit.

Good place to meet friends for dinner in the crossroads district. The risotto with scallops was cooked perfectly my husband had the burger and it was outstanding. The server made several recommendations and was very friendly. One of our friends tried the duck soup and loved it.

Atmosphere was great! Food was good but not great and they unfortunately ran out of a dish one person in my party wanted. Music was great and made ringing in the new year with friends very exciting. Overall good experience.

It was obvious they were overwhelmed by the NYE crowd. It took an exceedingly long time to get our dinner served, the waiter was monosyllabic and we were over it. I expressed my frustration with the manager in a polite but firm fashion and to his credit comped our dinner. We will go back as the food, service and atmosphere are all very good. Winstead saved the night.

New Years Eve 4-course dinner with wine pairing. Food and wine were both tremendously good, service was friendly (as always) and the wine steward was knowledgeable & helpful (as always). Only ding is that the food was slow in coming- I think the kitchen was overwhelmed as it was very crowded. To their credit, they kept the wine flowing during the food delays, and since we were in no rush, we took our time and enjoyed our meal and conversation. Been to Tannin several times, and will keep going back!

The service was so good! Very personable and very efficient. Nothing about the meal really stood out except the whisky and the wine selection. But I would go back again for sure, just to make sure it wasn’t because it was New Year’s Eve. I cannot imagine that is the best night to determine things. Over all quite lovely!

Hands down one the best steaks I've ever had. Cooked to perfection melt-in-your-mouth. Small plates we're delectable although I would have liked more bread or cracker options. Chef knows what he's/she's doing. A lighter fruit option for dessert course would have been lovely. But I wouldn't have changed anyting about what it's on the menu. Wine selection it's just fabulous! Our waitress was studying to be a sommelier and her knowledge of wines was vast and she wasn't pretentious. She was an absolute delight and very eager to share her knowledge without making you feel stupid. She was amazing.
