Loved the vibe of the restaurant. . Staff was very friendly and attentive. Food came out great and with little wait.
Great food and service. A little loud but still nice ambiance
Amazing food and service and atmosphere! I always get the kale salad and their fries—-best in the world!!!
Such great food and service. The flavors were on point. The outdoor space is one of my favorite patios in the city. It's perfectly tucked away—what a great spot.
Cocktails were delicious, our server was delightful and the food here is always good.
Never disappointed, since the dessert menu popped up first when you scan QR code for menu , so we decided to have the banana bread as appetizer which was yummy , warm with butter ( wish butter was room temperature) I had Kale wrap for lunch with their Famous deviled eggs as side, kale wrap is so perfect , lightly dressed in sweet and tangy dressing . Love this place .
Ordered two burgers, one rare and one medium rare. Both came out well done at best. Incredibly underseasoned and overcooked.
Am sympathetic to it being COVID and the place had a cool vibe, which is why this review is 2 stars and not just 1, but the burgers were frankly trash.
Family was in town for the weekend so we went to Westside Local. We were running a little late (5-10 mins) so we called ahead and the host was very understand and even thanked us for calling ahead when we arrived. Food was delicious and it was really beautiful inside! The restaurant felt full but not crowded.
Best mac and cheese around. Consistently. Especially with salmon.
I love dining at Westside Local. This little place offers BIG flavors. My personal favorite is the grilled cheese with french fries but their cheese boards and creme brulee are also fantastic.
absolutely wonderful food and drinks and their desserts are divine.
It's a great restaurant with awesome food. One of KCs true finds.
Just so fresh and delicious. As I was leaving, I was texting friends and setting up our next dinner date and saying that we’d go here! Loved every last bite.
Loved everything about this place! Our waitress Reesa was a delight, the drinks were soooo good and so was our food. You can just tell a lot of love and thought is put into every menu item. It’s a rare find these days.
Such a delicious meal. We have a dog so we sat on the nice quiet patio. Kale salad, salmon, quinoa and veggie burger- we had a feast. Will definitely be back.
Delicious Brunch! Great service. Promptly seated with reservation. Highly recommend.
The Westside Local is hands down my favorite place to take out of town guests. The food, the environment and the service is always wonderful!
We picked Westdide for dinner before a concert. Our waiter seemed disinterested in dealing with us. For instance he seemed annoyed when he was asked for ice. When he didn't bring it, another staff member was asked. When our waiter finally returned with it, he kinda huffly placed it on table and walked off. We were sitting outside and it was hot. There should've been plenty of ice provided to each of us but no one else asked after that. The food was okay, nothing exciting. The same things can be gotten for less money and be more flavorful at other places. It's a good thing they had an automatic tip because i wouldn't have tipped that much. Maybe that's why the service was mediocre at best? He knew the tip was guaranteed. I had been to Westside once before and enjoyed it. No one else in our group had been there so it was disappointing after i talked it up so much.
We love this place. The summit brisket burger is absolutely delicious. You must make reservations most of the time but if willing to wait it’s worth it. They can even accommodate lager group reservations. Can’t say enough about this place. My husband would like the jalapeño burger back.
Food was alright, service was alright, overall experience was alright. My personal opinion.. go somewhere else
Very delicious food and very great atmosphere. Service was very slow - we didn't get our drinks until after appetizers.
Fantastic as always!
Great vibe, great food. Will definitely return a second time!
French toast fruit and toppings were great but toast a little over done. Difficult to find sign/entrance, since sign was faded. Great service and ambience, perfect to lounge and have drinks.
This has been a favorite of my wife’s and mine for several years. Went fairly regularly pre-COVID, this was our first visit post. As good as I remembered. Best Grilled Cheese in town. And the brown sugar bacon was a fantastic add. Will be coming back regularly.
Westside local is one of my favorites! Rachel took care of us and she was the perfect balance of attentive & let us have our alone time to catch up. She’s a goddess & a cocktail queen. I love sitting at the bar or in the bar area or outside on the patio.
Food, cocktails, and service are exceptional! Quality ingredients, well-designed menu offerings for both cocktails and food, and masterful preparations of both contributed to the wonderful dining experience.
Always delicious, always a great time! I love bringing colleagues here for work lunches.
Fabulous ...always good
This is our favorite spot in KC. Best food in the city!
Always a consistently good meal, and great service.
Our experience was a disappointment compared to previous times. I made a reservation online for my husband and me and requested standard seating. When we arrived, we were seated outside which was quite hot and humid. The fan that was blowing our way barely put out any air and it was coated in dirt. I ordered the tacos and they were very good. However, my husband had the Moroccan Chicken Skewers which were bland and lacking seasoning. Next time I will call ahead and make sure we are going to be seated in the area I request online.
Loved this restaurant!! Everything we ordered was amazing and we will be back!!
great food! great service. was hotter than a hog farm in Alabama tho. really enjoyed our time there, cant wait to go back. got the pitcher of strawberry fun juice which was good too.
Was so nice to be back at Westside Local!!!
Missed this place so much! The food is so fresh, cocktails are delicious, and they have the friendliest servers and bartenders!
Enjoyed the food but it was difficult to carry on a conversation outside on the patio. It was very noisy.
Enjoyed the outdoor, fairly quiet ambiance. Chef was able to adapt the chicken skewers to accommodate my gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free needs. Nice selection of alcoholic spirits though a little light on the “pour”. Service was a little slow in the beginning but picked up. Overall, great dining and free street parking.
Great food and great service!
The food is very rich and flavorful. Portions are plentiful. We will be back!
