Great a la carte "Blunch" menu, reservations strongly recommended. Bring Mom out to our newly repainted patio!

As always, food was excellent. The tomato soup could have had a bit more “zip” to it.
Very enjoyable lunch!
I made reservations for 5 two days in advance. When we arrived, all went as expected until we got to the menu. Even though it was 6:30 on a Saturday evening, we were informed they were out of the two most popular appetizers and there were no steak options. A bit disappointed with the food options but drinks were good ("A League of Their Own" was picture-worthy). Service was great and prices were reasonable.
Excellent Menu, Service, and Experience!
This was our first time and we were delighted...we will definitely be returning to try all of the other wonderful menu items. The food was excellent... freshly-prepared and presented. Affordably priced, too. Glad we had reservations as it crowded up quickly after we arrived and it's not a terribly big place. Our friends mentioned that in warmer months, the restaurant also offers outdoor dining. We definitely recommend this neighborhood gem!
Had a wonderful experience here! Took my family here for my mother’s birthday and we had a wonderful time. There was food there for everyone and we enjoyed trying each persons choice. Our waitress was wonderful! My crabby old man even appreciated her great personality. Definitely suggest it to people that will be in the area or is looking for good food anyways!
It is always a treat to dine at The Westside Local. The ambiance of the neighborhood, the building itself, the rotating art they display, along with strong menu makes a visit a memorable one. Food is always delicious, both from the menu and with the specials. Comfortable, hip vibe for all to enjoy.
We ate here for Easter and it was my second visit. I found my first visit better than the second. I had the chicken and waffles and I have to say I was disappointed. My husband had a burger with strawberry jam and my mother had the grilled cheese sandwich and soup. Both of their dishes were very tasty, so maybe I just made a bad selection. We didn't have a reservation, but the hostess was able to seat us right away. I like the farm to table concept and the restaurant is cute. We ate inside because it was snowing but I prefer the patio area where we sat the first time. I'd try again, but will pass on the waffle next time.
Always my go to when I need good fries and friendly service
We have been to Westside local multiple times and it has always been top notch. The seasonal quinoa dish was excellent.
The quality of the food was amazing and very fresh. The love the fact that they use local vendors for their produce, cheese and meat.
A bit out of the way, but worth the drive. Good food and ambiance, but welcome from a waitress training the hostess was a bit off. She told us the bar was "too full" when there were hardly any people in there! Apart from that strange welcome I would definitely return.
Excellent farm to table resturant. One of my favorite places for lunch, and a great place to get dinner.
The food and service was amazing! Great vegetarian options as well! We will be back. The honey bourbon salmon was to die for!
We ate here before an event at the Kauffman Center, and it's very convenient to that venue. The food is wonderful. The portions are fairly large, and we all enjoyed our meals. My husband said his was quite possibly the best meatloaf he'd ever tasted.
Great local spot with good food and a nice mix of items for price conscious.
My husband and I really enjoyed the atmosphere here for a date night and the food was outstanding.
Changed reservation easily to different time. Staff very accommodating to our schedule. Food was prompt and excellent. Spinach appetizer is awesome!
We had a lovely time at Westside Local--the cocktails were divine and the food even better. Two of us had the bass, and we were not disappointed! Excellent experience all around.
My new favorite restaurant in Kansas City, hands down!
Westside local is one of favorite places in KC to eat or to get drinks. The atmosphere is cozy and the food/drinks are amazing!
The chicken salad was way too thick. I could not comfortably eat it, so I had to open it and eat it with a fork.
Awesome local spot for dates or for friend get togethers. The food is amazing! Would highly recommend!
The food and atmosphere was great, the service was really lacking for a place so nice. We were out with a group of friends, about 12 of us, so 20% gratuity was already included on each of our bills. Normally, this is fine and not an issue. However, many of us felt that our waitress did not give us proper service because she knew she was going to receive an automatic tip. She only came to check on us twice in the two hours we were there. We did not see her with any other customers outside or inside.
Tried a new menu item for me and it was tasty. Many times I get into a rut and order the same item.
Wait staff most helpful.
Brought a friend for her first:) she loved the menu!
Westside Local is consistently good. They use locally sourced meats, produce and dairy products and the quality shows in their menu items. If you're going for lunch, be sure to make reservations or arrive early because they're always busy.
My husband and I were in Kansas City for just one night, so we were very selective about where we were going to eat. Westside Local did not disappoint. Our server was great, giving us wonderful and honest recommendations. The quality of the food was wonderful, and we hope to get back there soon!
Everything was good. Loved my salad! Tomato soup a little bland. Great atmosphere for friends.
This spot has very tasty food but we did not appreciate the service. Everyone we encountered didn't seem interested in making our experience better. They were not friendly at all and our server barely interacted with us. Was a bit disappointed considering the food was so good.
The food was amazing!
We had a kiddo with us so grabbed an early reservation. They were great and the food was awesome. The homemade sodas were quite a hit.
It took longer than expected for our drinks to arrive from the bar and longer than expected for our food to arrive. But the food was very good. I wish my dish had been served warmer than it was.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed out meals. The Server seemed to be quite busy but knocked out table orders back to back to back. The only bummer was that they had short rib tacos instead of chicken tacos.
I've been a fan of Westside Local for a long time. Well prepared, locally sourced (where possible) food. Always a good vibe, excellent cocktails and specials. As a vegan, they used to have more options on the menu for me - but they're still willing to adjust things if I ask. Would recommend for almost any occasion.
Wonderful experience! Can’t wait to go back!
This was a birthday occasion, and we traveled over an hour to dine here. We specifically made early reservations to hopefully receive fresh, good service. My husband ordered meat loaf and was brought a hamburger by mistake. Not good. The server placed that order again; however, it didn't arrive until everyone else was finished. Who wants to eat by himself? Not good!!!!!!
Went with my girlfriend for an anniversary. We had a great time the food was wonderful and the ambiance was quite nice. There was no problem with the waitstaff but they did seem to be a bit understaffed and because of that our waitress took a while to get to us. Again the waitress was excellent.
We very much enjoyed Brunch at Westside Local. Food was great, a beautiful place. Parking a challenge, but worth it.
Great ambiance and amazing food. Definitely returning when the weather warms up to take advantage of their cool patio. Really dug the vibe of the entire restaurant.
