The Westside Local
It is good, but pretty par for the course for a hipster-sort of place. Nothing super special.
Great place for dinner and drinks!
West Side Local is an excellent choice for brunch, lunch or dinner. The service is outstanding. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and warm. I go as often. It's my favorite place to it in Kansas City. Go there - you will love it !
Great food, nice portions, and good price! Nice ambiance and the location is perfect if you’re attending the Kauffman Center for an event.
We had excellent service with a server who was very knowledgeable about the food. I had a hard time deciding what to order because so many things sounded good! All three people in my party liked the food very much and we will definitely be back.
Always delicious food and excellent service. One of my favorite places to go.
Excellent food! Atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but will be back for the food!
Brought friend for her birthday. Server was attentive and suggested a delicious lunch. Wonderful experience will definitely be back.
Tried it out for a date night. Really loved our food and cocktails, our server was friendly and had good recommendations for what to try, will definitely be back.
Food was alright, I had the French toast and it really didn’t taste like too much but the bacon and fries were very good.
It was great. Loud but great on all levels! Excellent server! Good food.
Good as always. Try one of their seasonal sodas mixed into a cocktail.
Server was great, and the meatloaf special was fantastic
Always a great night when we dine at Westside Local. The food is awesome and service is excellent. Love trying the Bread & Butter plate for a new treat each time and doesn't matter what else we order it is always good.
Relaxed venue with tasty food and drinks. What really sets The Westside Local apart, though, is the service. Everyone is very welcoming and attentive. It feels good to be in a place where the staff seems to enjoy their job and feel appreciated. Would definitely recommend this place.
Such a refreshing place away from the chain restaurants.
Everything was great! I wasn’t sure what to put for noise level, but it was perfect as well. Great service and food will deff be back again!
This was my third time eating at the Westside Local. It has remained consistently good, from the first time I ate here about 5 years ago to the present. The menu has a nice variety of choices, from salads to burgers to pasta dishes. There are vegetarian/vegan/pescatarian options and an assortment of appetizers. We managed to get in at the tail-end of happy hour, so each person in our party was able to get a glass of wine or a beer for $3. The service was excellent, and the ambiance is very chill. The Westside Local is a neighborhood gem!
The farm to table foods are amazing. One of the best secrets in KC.
Fantatsic local food and great service.
The service was attentive but not overly so. The food was very fresh. We both had the grilled cheese and tomato soup. What can I say. It’s winter and sounded good and tasted even better. The size of the restaurant was perfect. I’ll be back to try other things.
Had the grilled cheese and tomato soup, delicious! Best of both ever!
Food and service were good but everything took a long time to come out.
Best intimate place for wonderful food and great drinks!!
Great ambiance! Traveling for work and could sit and read a book. Great burger.
I really enjoyed The Westside Local. The atmosphere is so nice and welcoming inside. We ordered the lox board, which was so beautifully plated, the elote tater tot (a bit spicy!), and a few entrees. The trout was so buttery and delicious, and I loved the seasonal quinoa salad. If you like meat, you'll love the short rib torta -- it was filled with lots of short rib! We got the apple fritters for dessert, which we gobbled up.
Our server was attentive and super nice. I love this place!
Enjoyed a beautiful brunch with son and husband
Excellent food (the best grilled cheese on earth), but pretty poor service. I’ve been other times and had great service, so maybe this was a fluke.
Food and service were outstanding. We’ll definitely return.
Everyone in our party of four ordered different items and they were ALL delicious. Everything tastes very fresh and homemade. Creative side options make it so you can personalize your meal. We will definitely be returning soon!
Great food, service and ambiance as always. Westside Local continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Kansas City.
Came downtown to see the Symphony’s Christmas Extravaganza and this was a perfect place to eat before the show close to Kaufman Center. The cheese tray was outstanding and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. We will be back!
Westside Local is one of my favorite locally owned restaurants in Kansas City.
I do not frequent often enough, but I highly recommend reservations, especially Friday nights and the weekend. Having a reservation guarantees a spot and a lovely experience.
All around a great experience!
The food was very good. I cant give a 5 star review because the service was a little slow. I will say though it is the holiday and everyone is meeting for lunch so I will come back off season. I highly recommend the grilled cheese and tomato soup!!
The service was slow, but the mac and cheese is the best in town!
We had forgotten how much we enjoyed Westside Local. It was the perfect place to meet friends for lunch! The food (burgers, grilled cheese & salad) was yummy! Service was great too. The only drawback was the noise level... Not overpowering but a bit too loud for our old ears. Try the brownie or apple fritters for dessert: outstanding!!
We love to hit this restaurant before a show at Kansas City Music Hall or the Kauffman. We also like it for date night. Cool vibe, great food and excellent service.
Excellent food and value!
Appetizers are overpriced. Otherwise, my favorite place in KC!
