Food was outstanding. The cheese board was beautiful and contained more than the run of the mill options usually found. We had the scallops with black truffle risotto. Absolutely divine! Also had a very nice wine by the bottle at a reasonable bottle price. Arugula salad was delicious too. The chef came out to meet us upon our request...a real Frenchman, by the way, and so nice. Overall it was a great choice for a relaxing evening with dear friends.

Westport Cafe and Bar was so great! I had walked by it a million times before without stopping in and that will definitely change. Cocktails included with your brunch meal? Who would of thought??

Loved everything about the Westport Cafe!! The lamb skewers were to die for. My husband had the burger and it was perfection. Arugula salad with truffle oil was simple, light and so delicious! We will definitely be back again!!

From the moment we walked in and were greeted we had a great feeling. Our server Lindsey was attentive, and gave us such an amazing experience. Her knowledge of the food was spot on, we had the Escargot, Beef Tartare, Gazpacho and the lamb skewers as a start. For dinner we had the Pea Ravioli, Lamb Pappardelle, Steak Frites and Lamb Chops. Everything was delicious, presentation of the food was impressive and quite frankly one of the best meals I have ever had. Couldn’t be happier to have chosen the Westport Cafe for my sons surprise birthday celebration.

Had brunch. Was great! I had the fried chicken which comes with French toast. My Bloody Mary was included. Fun space, highly recommend. Need a reservation for sure if you don’t want to wait an hour or more.

The Bastille day pre-party was a blast! We came early to eat before the DJ started. I loved my three course meal and my cocktails were well balanced and so tasty. I'll definitely be reserving a table next year, but I'll definitely be back before then!

We had the bouillabaisse special. It was southern France style, perfectly prepared and brilliantly flavorful. It was paired perfectly with a large poured glass of wine. I hope they bring it back as often as they can.

It was Bouillabaisse night and this is one of my husbands favorite dishes. We were not disappointed. It was absolutely delicious. I have not been a huge fan of bouillabaisse in the past, but I must say I would definitely order this dish again. Westport Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants - food is always good, service delightful and ambiance transports you to a bistro in France.

Westport Cafe is one of (if not THE) my favorite places to eat and have a good drink in KC. Always a great time being served up there, and the food is consistently remarkable. This specific occasion I made a reservation for just so I wouldn’t miss there Bouillabaisse Night. This is one of the incredible French dishes on one of their fairly often special evenings. The fish stew was cooked to perfection and the wine was refreshing.

Loved it! Great ambiance and the Norwegian eggs were spectacular — the lox had a wonderful smokey taste and it paired perfectly with the poached eggs. Hubby had eggs with bacon and a half-order of biscuits and gravy that was huge. Service was friendly, food came out from the kitchen promptly. Would love to try it for dinner sometime!

It reminded me of small French Bistros in NYC except our waiter wasn’t snotty. Hope to return there the next time I travel to KC

I ordered the chicken and French toast for brunch. The French toast wasn’t cooked all the way so they sent me a whole new order to replace it. It was twice the amount of what came with the chicken! Server was very polite about everything. I criticized the free mimosa with the brunch but it was actually the perfect size for my meal. I would definitely go back to try more items off the menu! It all looked delicious!

The service was friendly and efficient. We were there for brunch and enjoyed the omelette, biscuits and gravy and polenta and shrimp. All were very good. The brunch came with a complimentary drink and we had refreshing mimosas and belllinis. Was a little surprised with a reservation to be marched past tables in the front to a table by the bathroom - which we refused - and were agreeably seated mid restaurant. Guess we weren't hip enough to be displayed through the window

We are frequent customers here. Today we enjoyed a delicious brunch. My husband had the Croque Monsieur and I had the quiche Lorraine. Both were delicious. The service was friendly and quick. If you’ve not been to Westport Cafe you must go!
