One of the best meals I can recall having at a restaurant. The service was also outstanding, and the craft cocktails were delicious. Wish we weren’t from out of town because I would come back time and time again.

Sat. night 6pm: Westport Cafe was as good as we had read. We got braised beef and scallops as our entrees. Both were excellent, as were the wines they recommended.

The best brunch is Kansas City. Ricotta pancakes, shrimp polenta, biscuits and gravy, even the eggs Benedict are the best you've ever had. And you get a complimentary mimosa or bellini with your meal. The food is authentic french with great attention to detail. The service and ambiance superb.

This is a casual but upscale French restaurant. The Oysters, braised beef and steak with fritters were excellent. The frittes with the steak were the best I ever tasted. I went for the Crepes Suzette and I was not disappointed. I highly recommended.

Consistently fabulous, 100% of the time. Love the new spring/summer menu. The halibut special plate could have been featured on the front of Bon Appetit and was perfectly seasoned and prepared.

My steak was l cold but otherwise good.
The appetizer which was the lamb meat balls was ok.. The dipping sause for them was amazing but the meatballs were just kinda bland. The service was awesome. Anytime i needed anything she was already there. I do not remember her name but she has the cute curly hair.

Absolutely outstanding first experience! It was a Tuesday night and even though we'd heard great things about the steak night, we opted to share a couple dishes. The cheese tray was fabulous! Combine the blue cheese/Apple with the olive spread and yum - incredible! An explosion of flavors on a board! Move on to the pea ravioli in a brown butter sauce - oh, my. If I could have licked the plate, I would have! This is defintely a return-to restaurant on the list! Highly recommend!!

End-to-end great experience. Both our dishes were proper in all aspects - including timeliness which at Sunday brunch many don't meet. Atmosphere is excellent, as were the staff. 10/10 will be back.

Charming French restaurant - great drink choices and a varied menu. We had the specials for the night - a terrific take on French onion soup (blended and poured over bread w/melted cheese), and a wonderful beef pot roast like dish. Excellent overall experience - we will be back!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is outstanding, as well as the service. The owner always comes around and speaks to us and really makes us feel like we are the only customers in the restaurant. We love the “reimagined” French onion soup, steak and fries, and the bread pudding. You’re just not going to find anything bad on the menu.

Lindsey was our waitress (sorry if spelled Lindsay), and she is fantastic. My husband and I went for the Tuesday night steak and frites special, and it was clear that the kitchen didn’t treat it as “cheap special night.” The steak was perfectly cooked. We will be back soon and request her section. Thank you!

I was there for Sunday brunch. One of my companions and I ordered the Eggs Norwegian, and both of us would definitely order it again. My wife enjoyed the sliced steak and egg, and my other companion loved the shrimp & polenta. The brunch is a good deal, and the restaurant isn't very loud, even when crowded. I strongly recommend making a reservation for Sunday brunch, if you're arriving before 1:00 pm.

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved Westport Cafe & Bar! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a friendly smile. Our server was very attentive and our food was out quickly considering the amount of customers that were present. I had the classic B&G and it was one of the best biscuits and gravy I've had in the Kansas City area! Overall...great food, great staff and sweet atmosphere!

We went for brunch on a Sunday, the food was excellent and our server Alonzo was fabulous, great tips and recommendations. My friends had the shrimp and polenta and it was a little short on the shrimp but the flavor of the dish was fantastic. All in all I would say try it for brunch, you'll love it.

We come to this restaurant often and usually it is wonderful on all marks. However, this visit it was our anniversary and since I had noted it on the reservation I had thought that maybe we would have a nice table, but we were just seated at the first table as we walked in the door. Server hovered a lot and we were just trying to course out our meal and enjoy each other’s company. Then, he got busy and we didn’t see him until we paid. Food was good but not as good as usual. We’ll be back, but hopefully it will be better.

We’ve been to Westport Cafe many times and enjoyed lovely meals. Saturday night was certainly the exception.
We had an AWFUL experience. Our reservation was at
6:15 pm. Even though we told our server Lincoln that we were going to the theater and needed to be out by
7:30 pm, our dinners didn’t come until 7:15 pm! My husband’s steak frites was served cold and overcooked with soggy frites. My beet salad was delicious. However, my crab cake was inedible!!! The crab cake was RAW inside and the lemon sauce was overpowering and tasted like lemon concentrate. Our dinners were comped, but the manager made a real faux pas. He didn’t bother to come over and introduce himself and apologize for the terrible evening.

The food at WCB is consistently excellent. We had the Happy Hour special and had 4-5 small plates including steak frites, lamb kabobs, and the cheese plate. All excellent. The wine list, while small, is excellent. We had a white CdP which Kevin (the owner and our server) helped us to pick. WCB is a bistro-like setting surrounded by brick walls so the noise can get a little loud. My only slight criticism was the service seemed a little slow at times. It is MUCH better than the previous ownership and perhaps it is Kevin’s way of teaching us to slow down and eat like the French. Eat and drink here and you will be happy.

This a favorite spot. Went for brunch and all of the items were very good. It was a very cold day outside, and every time the door opened, we got a blast of arctic air. If the weathet is cold, request a table in the back.
