The Westside Local
The food was amazing - definitely will be visiting again the next time we are in KC!
I always love to take my friends to Westside Local. The rotating food menus and amazing drinks bring me back time and time again. This visit I got the open faced sandwich and the drink was an absence cocktail with pistachio orchata. So amazing.
This restaurant has yet to disappoint me. I’ve had it for brunch and dinner, different meals every time and I always walk away 100% satisfied. Worth the (usually) necessary reservation because it’s just that good.
Always good. One of our favorites. Great ham and cheese. And special for Valentine’s Day. Short rib with kale and grits. Never disappoints.
We had dinner at Westside Local on Valentines Day, and overall a great experience. We were seated on time for our reservation, and although it was a cold day, the restaurant team did all they could to keep the room comfortable given the cold air from ingress and egress.
Service was great, lots of attention but not intrusive.
The food was delicious, the flavors popped and were highly distinctive. Temperatures were perfect, our dinners were served at the optimum time following prep.
Our waitress seemed to have nearly all the tables in the front room, negatively affecting service. Took 15 mins to order and another 20 to get our two dishes. None of this was her fault, management should plan accordingly. After all, it was Saturday morning brunch.
Good food, nice place. We had the grilled cheese and pork belly. Would eat again.
The food quality was fantastic. Some quirky folks work here, but they are Okay folks.
While the quality is high, so are the prices. You get what you pay for, I guess....
Excellant food and service. Great selection of food and drinks.
The “pint of fries” is a must! I do not eat fries, but these are the best.
I like the selection of fresh, locally obtained food on the menu.
I came with a friend who had not been before - he enjoyed it, too.
Westside Local is one of my favorite restaurants!
Food was amazing!!!
Jalapeño jam burger + cider beer. Would highly recommend!
Love the feel of the restaurant with the exposed brick. The burgers and fries are especially good. Generous drinks. Their creme brûlée was excellent.
Every time we go here it is a pleasant experience. Love the atmosphere and decor and the food is excellent. The service is always attentive while also allowing you to enjoy eating and conversing with those you are eating with.
The food (pork sandwich) was exquisite. The selection of food was exactly the amount that I feel offers enough of a choice but also limits me to not going crazy. The service was excellent with both friendliness and offering to make things right despite not having any issues. The only complaint was the noise, which the layout probably contributes to. However this would not be any reason for me to not return or recommend. Highly recommend for food, ambiance, service and area.
Overall good experience
Loved it! Food and drinks were wonderful! GreatHapoy Hour!
party of 8 60+ adults. good food and great service. Too noisy, however, but they were busy (Noon Sunday on busy day in KC - football!) will return, especially when the terrace is open for outdoor service. not available yesterday - 15 degrees F.
We had a reservation but were given a bar table next to the window. It was rather cold we both had to cover our legs with our jackets. We ordered the chefs plate, salads and entries. All of the food was delivered within 10min if each other. The waiter did offer to take back the main course and have them remake it but we just went with it and ate the main first and then snacked on the rest after. The food was so good it was hard to get upset.
One of our favorites. Amazing food. Great atmosphere and excellent service.
Always a great place to eat dinner at. Never disappoints. Prices are a little high but for local farm food seems to be the norm prices for KC
I frequent the Westside Local because the atmosphere and the employees are great. The food is delicious and you get a lot for your money, that I always need a to go box. Also, don't forget their desserts!
Westside Local is always a great choice. Professional staff, great and different cocktails (Four different absinthe cocktails each with different brand of absinthe this time!). Yummy comfort food. My grilled cheese with tomato soup is always a hit with my wife. I always find something good to eat as well.
I always enjoy Westside Locale.
The host was a bit rude and abrupt. We had a reservation and ask for a different table then he took us too and he said no they were booked. I pointed that there was several open tables and a smaller table by the window. He just repeated “no we are all booked”
He came back a few minutes after we were seated and got our drinks and ask if we then wanted to move to that smaller table. We declined. I’ve been here several times, it’s one of my very favorite, but it will probably be a while before I go back.
This place never disappoints. The food is always perfect and the staff is great. On this visit we brought some friends that had never been to the restaurant. They LOVED it and can't wait to go back again!
great food, great service! my go to place for lunch!
Our server Dalton was awesome! Very good food and options for wife who is vegan. We will be back.
Great food, worth the drive for something different in Overland Park. Recommend especially if going to an event downtown KC in the evening.
Wonderful staff, incredible food, quality options...if you're not eating here, you're missing out!!!
The food was so good! The service was outstanding. An informal atmosphere and good value. Can't wait to go back. Perfect place to eat before performances at the Kaufman.
The tacos were excellent. I felt silly pairing cocktails with street food but it was fun and tasty.
One of our favorite places in a good restaurant town. Always excellent and consistent.
Took a friend there for first time ,blew him away great food! Service VERY GOOD, not a empty seat for lunch service! Strawberry Chocolate cake💥💥💥💥💥💥
We had tickets to the Kauffman and the restaurant was close by. We were happy with the very reasonable prices for our family. This was our first visit and we'll be back. The kale salad was delish and so were the burgers and the chorizo and sweet potato tacos. Great food put together with thought. We will go back soon.
Love this place! Perfect for brunch before heading to the symphony! ❤️
It was nothing short of amazing. Great ambiance and experience!!
Made a reservation and was seated promptly upon arrival. Sat for 20 minutes with no acknowledgement from staff. Got up and left - I don't think anyone even noticed. Not sure we'll be back.
