Our experience at Westside Local was wonderful! We began with happy hour, enjoyed the amazing Parmesan fries as an appetizer, and then greatly loved our dinner! The food was served in reasonable time and it was delicious! We will definitely return!

Fresh healthy salad with nice portion of perfectly cooked salmon. Others in our party of 5 were equally happy. One had a burger and said it was unusually good freshly ground beef.

Overall dinner was fine. Nothing too special about the food (we did enjoy the cheese board) but we were highly unimpressed with our waitress and there was another table of five ladies that were so loud we could barely hear our own conversation. We would probably go back, but not before we try other restaurants.

I loved the atmosphere-very casual and laid back feel. The food was excellent! We had the brisket tacos as an appetizer. They were extremely juicy and flavorful! My husband had the grilled cheese and tomato soup and I had the seasonal quinoa bowl. Both were above expectations and left us wanting more. We will definitely return to try other items off of the menu.

New and updated veggie burger is spot on. Always one of my go to’s here and it continues with the yummy goodness that the folks at Westside Local are always serving.

The handmade sodas are also my new favorite indulgence. Love that they are constantly updating and changing and every time I stop in they have new version for guests to try out.

It's a bit of a drive from south OP with dinner rush hour traffic, but that can't stop me from making this one of my all-time favorites in KC or anywhere. The staff is always wonderful, and the food excellent. I love the various craft cocktails they have and the awesome food choices. And, for some reason, this seems to be where we come whenever one of ours is heading off to Europe - so, we've made this our official bon voyage dinner place. On this visit, starters included the Bread & Butter Plate (the truffel roasted garlic butter is my favorite, and the Ibis bread is excellent) and the castelvetrano olives (2 orders) - these pair great with their gin-based drinks. Entrees for the group included the meatloaf (excellent and enough for lunch the next day), the striped bass, sausage and mushroom penne and pork belly and apple sandwich. Sorry, no room for dessert this night!

I've dined many times and have never had to wait so long for food (around 40 minutes) and it wasn't even that busy. I was with clients and we all had to be somewhere soon after 1:00 not anticipating to scarf down our food.
