Absolutely delicious food on a beautiful patio with excellent service! Definitely will keep going back.
Wonderful organic restaurant that had multiple options for my vegan friend and my own eclectic tastes. We love the westside neighborhood, with its shops, restaurants and mix of restored and new homes. The patio is a carefully organized outdoor space that is private (no thrown-together street-side tables). We had a leisurely lunch with good food and plenty of ambience!
The service was somewhere between inattentive and apathetic. But they didn’t mind putting a 22% tip on our bill for a party of six. I realized it’s hard to hire people when the government is paying people to stay home. I hope this cool eatery doesn’t collapse because of Covid policies.
We’ve eaten here several times in the past. The food seems to have slipped a bit but still very good.
This is a quaint local farm to table restaurant. They have unique cocktails. One of our favorite things is to go for a cocktail or a glass of wine and have their charcuterie tray. The rib-eye is amazing, and don't forget to try their Parmesan garlic fries!
Great Brunch! Welcome back
Food was great. Drinks were great. Wish they did brunch on Saturday too. Waited a long time for my bloody Mary but other than that it was really good
Love being out on that patio right now! Such a great atmosphere. Made some new friends.
This is literally my favorite restaurant in the city. Super disappointed in my server yesterday but other than that, another amazing dining experience.
Fantastic staff, amazing food/drinks, and wonderful ambiance! Favorite restaurant in KC.
Food was great and love the atmosphere. Neighborhood spots like this always get my attention when visiting other cities. It was a great spot and enjoyed our food. The only thing was the wait for our food was a little long but I wouldn’t hold that against them.
Great food and drink, energetic atmosphere, fun location
So excited to have WESTSIDE local open again! Delicious
Pretty good food-wise but disappointed with service. Our plates and glasses weren’t cleared during the entire meal. Waitress forgot wine order.
Family brunch- arrived and our table was ready for us to settle in. In a timely manner drinks and food were ordered. Food arrived too fast. Usually, this is a red flag, meaning much of the meal was precooked and being in reheated to quickly, dry and often bland food.
I will address my meal, the Waffle with Pork Belly. Nice looking plate, the pork belly was tender but lacked seasoning, the waffle was perfect, with the exception of being cold.
Our waitress was very much like meal, hot and cold. We had to wait 15 minutes during which time we witness three instances were she help court with fellow co-workers of 2-3 min.
The waiter obviously didn’t put in our order. We sat there for an hour before we finally caught him. And we still didn’t get our app. The restaurant is great and we eat there all the time. It was the waiter we weren’t happy with.
I am so glad Westside Local didn’t go out of business. It was one of our favorite places to go before the pandemic. You can’t go wrong with anything you order. I got the salmon tacos. They were so good. Our waiter was great and had a great sense of humor. A big part of the dining experience for me is the wait staff. If the service isn’t good, no matter how good the food is, I won’t go back. Our waiter really made our night extra fun. We can’t wait to go back.
So happy Westside Local is back! Great for our family and fun for a night out without kids!
Favorite spot in town for a good cocktail and tasty food.
We are thrilled that Westside Local is open again!
We had a lovely lunch! The service was excellent and the food was top-notch!
Delicious, as always. Kale salad and brunch burrito are two of our many favorites. Burger is awesome. Banana bread is delicious. Grilled cheese is amazing. Lively and fun atmosphere, fantastic patio, attentive staff. Westside Local has been a go-to for many years.
They were having some technical issues and comped two drinks plus our appetizer due to the wait. While it took a bit to get our food, it was well worth it and I would come back again.
Incredibly friendly service, however, the food took a long time to come out. I understand businesses are very understaffed right now and getting back on their feet. So if you had the same experience recently, come back! This place is the best!
So excited for this place to reopen! Hands down the best French fries in the city and maybe anywhere. The burgers were delicious. The Spicy Hawaiian burger with grilled pineapple, jalapeño and Canadian bacon was the perfect sweet and savory combo. Love that this gem survived the pandemic!
So happy this place is open once more! Still as great and food was amazing!!
Always friendly service and amazing food
Great experience - nothing to complain about. Will go back! Thank you
Great food and atmosphere. Thrilled they are back.
Family from out of town. Loved everything. Great service. Patio vibe was fun. Thank you!
WSL is one of our favorite spots in KC! The food is always amazing (especially the fries)! I've been here many times and I've never had a bad meal. The staff is caring and kind. The patio is beautiful- and covered!
Such a wonderful experience at Westside Local. We were so happy that they reopened just in time for Mother's Day as that's my wife's favorite place to eat in Kansas City. Even though the outside temperature was colder than usual for this time of year, we sat on the patio and were quite comfortable.
Went for Mother’s Day and this place did not disappoint. Coffee was delicious, I highly recommend the elote tots 👌 they were delicious! Our service was great as well.
This is by far our favorite restaurant in KC. Delicious food, wonderful staff and ambiance. It's our "go to" for all occasions!
The food was as delicious as always. The new menu items were delicious.
Been going to the Westside Local for over 10 years now. Was devastated when they had to close their doors last year, so of course we had to come welcome them back on their opening night. It was like nothing changed, food, drinks, service, ambiance as good as ever. Will be going for the next 10 years and more!
So glad to see this KC original open again. Great food, cocktails and service!
The food is amazing and service is always perfect.
Outstanding!! Food choices. Food itself. Presentation lovely. Service truly outstanding. Dalton is great!!
Solid food and service. They continue to refine farm to table
Had the best deal on happy hour wine ($3!) and a beautiful cheese and charcuterie board. Such a great date spot and they use all locally sourced foods. The house cocktails were great too.
