Everything about our experience at Renaissance Cafe was wonderful (minus some of the items on the menu weren't available already for a Saturday night). We still left with smiles on our faces and full, happy tummies!!! We already know who we plan to bring with us when we have company visiting out of town - We are so glad we found this little gem and will be back! Keep up the great work!!

Great Experience, Great Food, & Great Service!

Since my father went to that school when he was little it was a special night to hear him talk about his past and he showed us around the building where we were allowed of course.

The food was something you usually do not find around this area. I'm a total "foodie" and enjoyed the whole experience.

From the chefs treat of shortbread at the beginning and sherbet for the pallet cleanse before our entree.

This is what everyone needs to experience at dinner out with family, friends, or on a date with your loved one!

I like the minimal menu but big flavor and creativity with each dish we had.

Renee was amazing... The others servers were friendly as well. It is so nice to have a server with knowledge of the menu food and beverages.

I like how signature drinks were available.

We will definitely be back!

This restaurant is a hidden jewel in the middle of Kansas. Appetizers are superior quality, the meats are all very good and the service is very attentive, unbiased and very polite.

Amazing food as usual! We are never disappointed here! The only thing I will add that I've ever been unhappy about was the peach bread pudding. Although it had a delicious blueberry gilatto, it also needed some sorry if cream sauce. It was too dry. It's the only thing we've ever left uneaten! Seriously though, this place is amazing and Worth every penny!!!!

Online reservation was easy. Appreciated the text/email reminder.
Food combinations were creative, expertly prepared and delicious - absolutely some of the best food we’ve eaten with an appealing presentation. Appreciated the grapefruit/rosemary sorbet between courses. Not necessarily an extensive drink menu but excellent choices/variety available. Too stuffed to eat dessert but would imagine it would be top-notch as well. Background music was subtle which allowed for easy conversation at the table - inviting atmosphere.
Adrienne was attentive without being intrusive. She was knowledgeable when describing the menu choices. Will most certainly ask for her again. We drove in from Kansas City - well worth the drive

This restaurant is great any weekend, but an excellent place to celebrate those special occasions. The Beef Tenderloin Duo was so flavorful and cooked just right. Grilled Trout was equally delicious. Our meal included little extras to complete the dining experience. Rene our waitress was very friendly and provided excellent service.

We had a great time at the Renaissance Cafe. The staff was friendly and professional. Well informed of the menu. Our drinks were great and we enjoyed the mini-appetizer as well as the pallet cleanser, gelato (we could've made that dessert). The food was good, a tad bit on the bland side for my taste though. Overall it was a great experience for the area. We would go back again.

The experience was mostly positive. The food was good and inspired. Would like to have seen more true stand alone vegetarian entree options. From when we got there to when we finally left was about 3 hours, a little long.

The food was really good, my Brined Pork was over cooked a bit. The flavor was fantastic. I would eat at this place again, any time.

Love the atmosphere. Loud people behind us that spoiled the ambiance.

The Renaissance Café is a wonderful dining experience. The service, wait staff, drinks, food, and atmosphere were all first-rate. I wonder why my wife and I had waited so many years to try it out. Definitely worth the 45-minute drive. We plan to recommend it to friends and family, and we definitely will come again. This is one of the best placed we've eaten at in a four-state area.

My wife and I attended the special valentine day dinner on Friday the 16th. Our waitress was well informed and was able to steer us in the right direction on wine and the best of each offering for each course. The harp music made for a nice atmosphere and was at a level that still allowed pleasant conversation. Over all it was an excellent evening. We will return.

This was our second time visiting. This was also an evening with a special menu. We were blown away with the starters and the main course. Every bite was full of amazing flavor and plated beautifully. Our waiter also recommended great drinks that we may not have otherwise thought of to go along with our meal. Everything paired nicely and was a great evening.

Always a hit with us. Food was delicious and were so happy we chose to take our friends to celebrate NYE. Our cocktails were delicious. The steak was perfectly prepared and the pear tart with eggnog gelato was delightful. It’s always easy to relax and be spoiled by a top tier dinner at the Renaissance Cafe.

We discovered the Renaissance a few years ago and are still astounded that a small town in Kansas has such an outstanding restaurant. The setting, in an old school, is unique, the food is very good and the staff is friendly.
