Tavern at Mission Farms Ratings and Reviews
The Tavern has an excellent atmosphere, including a great outdoor patio. Generally, the service is better than what we experienced. Our server was not very friendly, helpful and attentive. Also, my wife and I both noticed that our food was not as good as it usually is. For example, I asked our server to tell the chef to not make my lemon bow-tie chicken spicy and yet it was too spicy. My wife also thought that her salmon was not as tasty as it generally is. In the past, a manager has always stopped by to check on our dining experience but not tonight. Overall, I would say that the Tavern did not live up to its usual high standards.
We went this last weekend for a girls night. We made a reservation knowing that it was restaurant week, and it might be busy. The manager came by towards the beginning of our meal and checked in, very nice. When we’d payed, but hadnt finished our coffee, he came by again, and pretty much asked us to get up. He didn’t offer us a table at the bar area, or even if we wanted more coffee. He just kind of directed us out. We all decided to use the restrooms before we left, and then stood there trying to find our next stop. While standing there, we watched him literally ask another table to leave. Our table was cleaned and no one sat there, their table was cleaned and no one sat there for 20 minutes. We left at that point and two open tables sat I don’t think I would have thought to much about it if they had sat someone at our table, but there was no one. Not even in the bar area was there a group of people waiting for our table. If they need the table, they need to learn some better tactics for getting people to leave/move
Last November we had a phenomenal brunch here and thought we'd give dinner a try during Restaurant Week. They did not disappoint! Each of the three courses were fabulous. Both the steak and Mahi Mahi were very tasty. The chef is quite creative in combining unique ingredients that make the food wonderful. We really questioned the carmel sweet potato cheesecake, but it was outstanding! We will return!
Several issues here:
1. Mac and cheese is a good portion, but the restaurant managed to make it taste worse than the box Mac and cheese. Somewhat gritty, not well mixed and a chalky flavor. Very odd for a restaurant that has a super nice ambience.
2. Our server clearly was trying to get us to leave! I was having drinks and apps with a colleague and the server came by a bunch (I mean a bunch) of times asking if we needing anything else and brought our check without even asking if we were ready for it. Very rude!
as always the food was amazing, but our waiter made us feel rushed and did not provide refills on drinks and took a long time getting bar drinks. we have always have wonderful service, but this night was really off. hopefully we visit there again with the amazing service we know they have.
We have never been disappointed with our food or service at this restaurant. They maintain the “tried and true” favorites but frequently tweak the menu with new items too. Their menu is vast enough to meet the needs and wants of all ages and all food diets. The staff in all areas of the restaurant are knowledgeable and friendly. They make you feel comfortable and that they are really happy to have your business. My favorite is their grilled pork porterhouse and their soups and salads,
One of the specials on this visit was a mushroom ravioli with roasted butternut squash and blue cheese. It was an appetizer portion but was large enough for my main dish!!! It was delicious; the flavors were perfect together! Also like the artichoke risotto appetizer! Nice atmosphere. Highly recommend!
The food was outstanding. Menu is full of comfort food options. We had seafood pot pie and vegetarian noodle dish with homemade donuts for dessert. Yummo!!! Very rich though. If you are looking for lean or veg, this isn’t the place. If you are looking for richly prepared cuisine, we highly recommend it. Even though we generally eat very healthy, this place was a nice treat date night out. Our server Matt was impeccably attentive and personable.
I hosted a group of friends and we have known one another for 40 years, all no longer needing the
placement of a 5 in our age, for that has now become a 6! Two of the couples at the table
drove over from St. Louis for the "going away Brunch" for the two being feted. The four from
The East had not been with those living in The West for many years. It felt as if no time had
passed and being in The Tavern At Mission Farms was a big part of our time together.
The Tavern At Mission Farms was a perfect joice of venue for hosting this event. The service is always EXCELLENT and I eat at this restaurant about 2 times each month, if not more. Keeping
service to the fore, everything about The Tavern keeps getting better all the time. The food is always well prepared and it is interesting fare without being pretentious, for The Tavern is anything but!! It is possible to have a quite conversation between two friends or a table full of cross-talk between a large group of friends. One can have a business lunch or dinner with the entire family or it is possible to walk in and take a seat at the welcoming bar and watch a Royals Game or Chiefs Game or just have a friendly exchange with the "barkeep!"
The Tavern At Mission Farms serves the neighborhood and the region, and it is worth driving an extra mile or five to experience a welcoming place that is so well run by Owners and Management
that truly cares than one never notices all the "rehearsals" that had taken place befor Opening Night!
We visited The Tavern to celebrate our son's birthday (his choice!). As we'd experienced in the past the ambiance was very good and the service was impeccable from start to finish. My wife and son both raved about their entrees. My choice was the fish of the day, mako shark, which turned out to be a mistake, since the large filet came undercooked and had a slightly "off" flavor which was not enhanced by its perch atop a mound of forgettable fresh spinach and jasmine rice. Two of us had also ordered the Caesar salad which, while plentiful, came to the table without the anchovies we'd requested (for which our waiter apologized - they apparently had "run out" of anchovies!), and with a dressing that was somewhat more bland than we might have liked. As a final note, we were seated in the rear dining area and found the very high noise level made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation without having to shout. Overall this experience was not quite in keeping with other more enjoyable visits to The Tavern we'd had previously.
My husband and I were there for dinner last Sunday night. It was not very busy that evening yet it took over five minutes for somebody to come greet us at the table and take our drink order. My husband ordered the chicken Parmesan and I ordered the Cuban sandwich. My sandwich was very good but my husband said the chicken Parmesan had no taste. Our server and another person, most likely the manager, came to ask us how the food was and I said my food was good and my husband answered both times that his was just OK, yet neither time was he asked to elaborate. When his plate was picked up, our server did not comment why most of it was still there, uneaten. We were disappointed that nobody really cared. We have dined there several times before and we’ve had much better service and food in past visits.
We used to be regulars at Tavern but it has been pretty hit or miss lately. We had a very disinterested waiter on Wednesday evening so our drinks were watery by the time someone else finally delivered them and our dinner was just warm. The cream of mushroom soup was outstanding however!
