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.
We have been to Westside Local 3 times recently and always enjoyed great food and service. Highly recommend.
Great lunch experience and the waiter was fantastic with my dairy allergy. I’m thankful that he suggested the veggie burger made vegan with deviled eggs as a side. I would order it again for sure.
This was my first time visiting with 2 friends. We all loved it. They have good cocktails and the menu is great, portion sizes are good. You leave feeling satisfied but not uncomfortable bc the food is nourishing and good quality. We can’t wait to go back and try it again.
I had hopes for this restaurant but was very much disappointed. The ratings were outstanding so we thought we would take a chance and celebrate our daughters 17th birthday here. Upon arrival they were getting our table ready, the hostess was pleasant everything was going well until we were seated. Our waitress for the evening never introduced herself to us and seemed to have an attitude. We shrugged it off as we all have our bad days and are allowed a "pass" but still hoped things would come around. They didn't. The service was the worst I have experienced, we ordered drinks (remember we were celebrating a birthday) and that was the only drink offered, we were NEVER asked again and flagging her down was impossible and they weren't that busy. We then ordered the artichoke appetizer that came with little chips and bread, not enough to finish the dip. One point for Miss Rude was she did offer more chips and bread, thank the Lord she is catching on. About 10 minutes later she returned with more chips, no bread and I kid you not she DUMPED the chips on the appetizer plate from the plate she carried them on and took off. That was a new one. We were served dinner by I think a bus boy and another waitress, the bus boy also had an attitude however the other waitress was pleasant. Overall, the food was good but service was horrible. Our tab came to $150 for 6 people which was extremely cheap for us, we were prepared to spend a lot more. We will not be coming back, you can thank the staff for that.
This was my 4th visit. The first three times were great but this time both food and service were both off a bit. Hope this was an isolated experience.
Since my daughter is vegan, we come here a fair amount. We like the area and the food is consistently good.
I had the striped bass served with corn/polenta cake...wonderful! Friendly helpful staff. Even appreciated the heavy curtains at the entrance to keep cold drafts off diners!
I always enjoy the food at Westside local! Two little criticisms would be that it’s a little loud and a little cold. But that certainly doesn’t keep me from coming back because the food is really exceptional!
This is my go-to for "I don't have a plan for dinner tonight."
Always a good experience!
The food and service were great but it was a bit pricey for lunch.
We have eaten at Westside Local with friends on a number of occasions and find that the food is good, the service is good and the atmosphere is friendly. It is also convenient to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
Excellent salmon and we love that it’s wild caught with so many organic sustainable options.
Great restaurant! We are on the Whole 30 diet and they actually had food we could eat! Though we did chose to cheat just a little bit because the food was so amazing! The ambiance was also perfect, not too loud, but as cozy and intimate as it is casual or dressy. We went for a birthday and really enjoyed it!
Just went for brunch for my first time ever and -WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG?! I had the chicken and waffles (and a side of bacon because I'm a human being) and I'm always skeptical about getting it in certain places but this was decadent and savory and I finished every last bite on my plate. The portion size was perfect. I will be going back.
We were so surprised at Westside Local, the ambiance and vibe were great, very casual atmosphere. The food was awesome and unexpected. The cocktail list was fun and creative. I would definitely recommended trying this place out you will be happy and we will absolutely be coming back next time we are in Kansas City.
