We had reservations and was seated immediately. The service from our waitress was good. She was attentive and responsive to our needs.

I ordered the grass fed beef burger and requested well done. The burger was not well done when I received and had to be sent back to finish cooking. I also ordered the squash soup and it was cold when I received. The other person I was with food was good and no concerns.

The kitchen made a new batch of soup and when I received the second cup, it was good.

I appreciated the staff trying to make my order right and they were very nice. Overall my experience was okay because I like eating my soup before the main entree and that didn’t occur on this visit.

Thank you

Never disappoints! Started with the Truffle Honey and Pear Flatbread and some Roasted Brussels Sprouts, excellent. Then I had my favorite, the Spicy Panang Curry with shrimp added -- so good. I also had the Passion Fruit Margarita, always tasty as well. Everything was very yummy as usual.

On my 5th or 6th visit, I am consistently underwhelmed. Though bright and spacious, restaurant has a cafeteria feel. Food is fine, but not flavor-full, and is overpriced for such blah food and boring, noisy atmosphere.

My vegan burger was “crispy” - that is, burned. Service was a bit spotty, though we did get our food fairly quickly. Had to flag down the server to get a drink refill and the bill. The flatbread special my friend ordered was more of an appetizer than a meal.

Responded on November 4, 2021

Hi Diane. Thank you for your feedback. The Truffle Honey Flatbread is a featured started for us on our Fall menu. The Vegan burger is "seared" to give it a nice texture But it sounds like this wasn't executed well on our end, it certainly should not be burnt. I apologize for this as well as the inconsistent service. Not at all what we expect from our team and we should be better than that. Please reach out to me directly 816.216.4640 I'd love to invite you back for a better experience on us!

Very accommodating. Made a reservation for 8 people for 7 pm and asked at 5:30 if we could move it to 6pm. It was a Saturday night. The hostess had to do a little shuffling of her seating plan but made it happen. That was so great! Reunion of my 90 year old aunt, cousin and her husband with my 85 year old mom, my sister, me, my wife and 16 yr old. Perfect place for a nice meal and good conversation. Thank you so much!!!

The hostess took forever to get to us. She was busy with a customer and seemed like she was training a new girl. We were about 15 min early for our reservations was able to get a drink of water available. The rest of the dinner was fantastic! Waiter was awesome!! Wanted poke they did not have tuna. So settled for Korean noodles which was really good.

Vegan burger needs a little help. Turkey burger was fabulous, meaty, juicy. Guacamole was amazing, edamame addition was genius. Concord grape lemonade was neither lemony nor grapey, color tinted ice water is all.
