Interesting menu, excellent drinks, great service. Not your standard date restaurant. Highly recommend the pork soup!
This is our favorite place for a romantic dinner or with friends. The food is different and amazing. When the smoke turnip soup is on the fall menu it is an absolute must. The drinks are wonderful and the staff is very laid back and fun!
We had an awesome evening at the Rieger. Attentive service, amazing menu...overall a perfect dining experience. Thanks!
Our party of 6 really enjoyed the cocktails at Manifesto prior to dinner. Great atmosphere! Dinner was another story. We had a 7:15 reservation and were not seated until shortly after 8. I realize the restaurant staff cannot hurry along slow diners but this seemed an excessive time to wait, with a reservation. The restaurant staff did not make any moves to seat us until we began to get impatient, like any hungry horde, and said something to the host. This was a special occasion for us and the delay in seating interrupted the momentum of the evening. Once seated and ordering began, the charcuterie platter was a hit! Great combo of exotic meats. Among our dinners, the best meals were the chicken, catfish and steak. The rabbit pie was dry and the soft-shell crab dinner was skimpy. The Chef comped an order of potato rolls for the delay in seating us. They were ok, but we already had plenty of bread on the table and maybe a comped dessert would have be nice since the restaurant staff knew our celebration was a birthday. I'm sure The Rieger could care less, as business was booming on Saturday night, but we will probably not visit again.
Good place. A tad disappointed in the rabbit pie, it was a little dry and bland. Great service
Our server Joe was outstanding. He seems to truly enjoy his work and this reflects on his rapport with the guests.
Thank you for a great evening
Loved the creative menu and wonderful narrative from a very well informed waiter. Food was delish and beautifully presented!
Chef Howard is a gem in Kansas City, he's worked with the best in the world and we are lucky to have him. His touches on every dish assure an authentic translation of his vision every time. The creativity is limitless and we are reminded every time we go just how special the place is.
Too loud. Crowded. Tables close together which made it difficult to have a conversation. Food was good but small pasta portions. Decent wine. Hard to park.
Early 20th Centrury charm, great food, inventive menu. I had butter humus, rabbit pie, and blackberry compote with mint ice cream. My wife had chicken liver mousse, pasta, and olive oil cake. It was all great.
