The chicken Alfredo and sausage lasagna were both very delicious. We had a smoked chicken appetizer that was really flavorful. Would definitely like to eat here again. Service was great!

One can quickly realize why this is the number one Restrauant in Excelsior Springs. Service and food first class. Food presentation normally found in $$$$ Restrauants yet this is in the $$ category. Don't miss.

This was a lovely little restaurant, very charming decor. We were welcomed as soon as we arrived and had no fewer than 3 people wait on us. When my husband and I disagreed on dessert (he wanted the cheesecake, I opted for the apple tart) he acquiesced and indulged me with the tart...the waitress brought him a slice of the... More

I came here for dinner with friends and would absolutely go back for the cheesecake alone. To. Die. For!! The Asiago ravioli was delicious as well, but the dessert was definitely my favorite. The waitress was really attentive and the atmosphere was very nice.

We visited Ventana during our stay at the Inn on Crescent Lake. It was recommended to us by the owners of the Inn and it didn't disappoint! The food was delicious & the price fit the portions. The Italian butter was amazing! Be prepared to save room for cheesecake... they have tons to choose from and they're AMAZING!

We took our guests from Germany to Ventana Coffee House for breakfast.....We sat there for 20 MINUTES before anyone even acknowledged us.Don't understand why, since they were not even busy! Breakfast was average.....It is a charming place, but because the food is average and the service so poor, we will not be going back....Our guests from Germany were not impressed!

9 of us ladies had an amazing dinner at Ventana!! The Spinach dip app was amazing! I had the New Orleans chicken pasta and garlic pita bread and it was very good! The service was very fast and pleasant and the staff was incredibly friendly. We can't wait to go back. Thank you!

Interesting atmosphere in an old 5 & dime store. Menu has lots of offerings. I chose my favorite sandwich...a Reuben. It was excellent. But, the thing that makes this place stand out is that the owners are outstanding bakers. Their cakes and pies are off the end of the chart.

We ate here on a Friday night w/ 3 children and 2 adults. 2 of the 3 kids had spaghetti and the other had alfredo and each one of them ate every single bite, which is saying something w/ our family. The other half enjoyed the American Burger and I chose their Chicken Alfredo. All the dishes were delicious and... More
