    I have been wanting to eat here for years. Met the new owners, very friendly and absolutely a wonderful birthday dinner. The food was first class, we all tried different salads and entrees, all excellent. Wish them many years of success!!!

    Our group enjoyed the Crab & Salmon Bites and the Charcuterie Platter for appetizers, they were wonderful! Everyone loved their dinner, I had the Fresh Cheese Tortellini with one of their Castle Exclusive wines called K Sera Syrah!

    This is the 2nd year in a row we’ve celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Wandering Vine & Dan & Carla didn’t disappoint! The wine list is always amazing & the menu is fresh, unique & delicious. We love the romantic ambiance of the castle & since our table was upstairs the noise level wasn’t too bad. Our server was knowledgeable & attentive, not to mention fun! Wandering Vine is a JOCO gem!

    We have been there once before and the food was absolutely amazing! however last night the food was just sub par and the service was as well. The food was very salty. We won't be back anytime soon I hope they can figure out the kinks! Atmosphere of course is always amazing as you are sitting in a castle!

    Wandering Vine is a beautiful place to celebrate a special occasion. We went for the first time for our Anniversary and will be back. The food was superb, the service was excellent and the owner made her rounds multiple times and even offered a tour and some history. The only complaint is it’s not kid free so plan to potentially have a romantic dinner with kids.

    A classic building used as a fine dining restaurant. Striking rooms surrounded with local stone and deep wood for the mood. Tasty food with unique combinations and a huge wine list for the palate. The best part: The personal attention, friendly service, and sincere welcome provided by the hosts, making it feel less like dining out and more like a visit among friends.

    Wondering Vine never fails to impress us beginning with the one-on-one attention by the wait staff and owner, Carla. Wondering Vine is the best kept secret in Kansas City which is why I hate to rate it so high. I can't imagine a better place to spend a Sunday Brunch with family and friends.

    The ambiance was wonderful. The waitress was nice but inexperienced. The drinks, salad and dessert were great, the main course was below average and very pricey.

    This is a Hidden gem. The food was very good and with an appropriate price point. We chose to split several items on the menu as well as a wine flight. The charcuterie board and crustada were highlights along with the filet. We only wish we had room for a dessert. The outside patio is beautiful as well and I can imagine sitting outside with a group enjoying a nice evening. We met the owner and she told us the story of the castle which made it a unique experience as well. The service could’ve been better but I understand it’s hard to find help at the moment. A proper greeting and overall acumen goes a long way and that was missing. All in all, definitely worth a trip.

    Me and my wife came not only for dinner but for an experience. We were treated like royalty as we were celebrating my wife’s 40th b-day as well as a celebration of welcoming our 2nd child into our lives… we will be back to this place indefinitely!!! If you’re deciding? Just stop looking and come to the wandering vine. You will not be let down!! Special thanks to the owner, shef, and staff!

    Wonderful as usual. Most beautiful patio in town with a phenomenal wine selection. Try the goat cheese and apricot crostata. It’s a sweet and savory bite of heaven in a flaky housemade pastry crust.

    I had not known of this venue, but the website was impressive enough to give it a try. A Castle…in Shawnee, KS? It’s true and it’s an area gem! The ambiance was wonderful, the staff went above and beyond, and the owner came to the table to introduce and to ensure everything exceeded expectations. Oh…and the food! Every course was expertly prepared and the wine flight was the perfect compliment to the food courses. If 5–stars is a restaurants goal….I offer this venue a 10-star rating. It truly was a perfect experience.

    First time trying this venue and it surpassed all expectations. It is difficult to find such an architectural gem from 1908 that is so beautifully preserved in suburban Johnson County. Anyone who appreciates find food with complex tastes in an elegant setting where the owners get to know you should not pass this up. The wine and food menu is quite diverse and the full service bar, deserts and ambiance are a great bonus.

    This is a favorite of ours. Food was excellent. I had the Lamb and my husband had Salmon. We were disappointed the Mushroom appetizer is not on the summer menu. The owners are attentive and always there to greet guests. Our issue is having a server who does not seem to enjoy her job and is less than pleasant. When we asked about a glass of wine we had asked for from a manager and another individual who came by she told us well you need to order it from me. When we asked for a dessert recommendation the comment was they are all good. There was just an attitude that ruined our special night.
