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.

What a nice place!! Hadn’t been here since it was a previous restaurant. My chef daughter and son in law recommended it to me. I was not disappointed one bit!! Nice little French bistro!! Menu was varied enough for any pocket book and great wine selection!.

The food took quite a while, but when it came it was quite delicious. Service wasn’t great, as we often went without water and why we needed. There was a party of about 8 that took our servers priority, which was too bad. I’ll still probably go back, but it was a slight disappointment.

The food was excellent! It was the Saturday night before Christmas, so the restaurant was very busy. Service was a bit slow. Our table was next to a larger work party, so it was very loud.

The veal stew was outstanding and unique with the emulsion employed for the sauce and the crab and shrimp cake was very good, although much more shrimp than crab, making it more of a shrimp cake. The service and wine choices were very good. A very nice place to eat before a show.

what a wonderful gem. so many restaurants are not french and the ones that are you have to get way dressed up for or need to spend $100+. You can certainly do that here but WCB is really down to earth...its like being in Paris - without the yellow vests, high taxes, crowded subways, and riots.

My wife and I dined on a Friday night after a movie at the Tivoli. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. We ordered a beet salad with goat cheese, which was fresh and tasty. We couldn’t decide on which of two bottles of wine, so our server offered to let us taste both, which was appreciated. My wife had the scallops with black truffle risotto, which were cooked perfectly. I ordered the lamb chops, served with a bordelaise sauce, minted pea purée and gnocchi. Delicious.

WCB has long been a favorite of ours. The atmosphere is terrific and the menu - regularly updated - is always excellent. I almost always get the salmon, a carafe of Little James Basket and, if I've left room, the bread pudding. We like WCB for brunch as well. Their omelettes are the best.

We have dined here in the past and enjoyed the bistro atmosphere. While our meals have been good, we were not prepared for the terrific food prepared by the new chef. My husband had halibut with a light tarragon sauce served with quinoa and vegetable stuffed peppers. Hands down the most delicious thing I have eaten in recent memory. I had a lovely gazpacho with citrus poached crab and avocado and their divine beet salad. Delicious! Great service from Lindsay. Good wine selection, fairly priced. We'll be back soon!

We were in town Friday and Saturday, for the Westport Art Fair (among other things) from STL. We read in Feast that this was rated #1 brunch location. So, we went back Sunday. Reservation making on the net was very easy considering the fair was occurring on the same street. I thought the "complimentary" bloody mary was very average....WAY too much horseradish and not enough other seasonings, i.e. celery salt, tabasco, worchestershire sauce, etc. But, the coup de grace was my husband's order of eggs and bacon. He asked for "toast" and found out they did not know what to do with the request!!! Now, they make croque madam's and other brioche items, but NO TOAST. The gracious waiter "found" something resembling "toast" and charged us an extra $3......really? Also, they present their menu as very french. I ordered the omelet with pomme frites. Expected a perfect FRENCH omelet. Not even close. Liked service and atmosphere, but we were very disappointed with the Feast rating as Best Brunch in KC.
