Great food, fun décor. Nice time for family to relax and talk while enjoying a healthy lunch. Our college graduate and his girlfriend also frequent the restaurant.

In town on a Monday night. Quiet place with good customer service. Wanted something not crowded. Had "Black Bean Soup" and a sandwich "Salmon BST" Grilled salmon, apple wood‏ smoked bacon, baby spinach, roma tomato & avocado w/ warm maple balsamic vinaigrette. Delicious combination. Full walking out and satisfied.

Tried this restaurant. Used the restroom and found it less than clean. As people ate and left there were tables sitting with food on them the whole time we were eating. Also, when served our order, which took a while, some of the food slipped and fell on the table. He just said, "sorry" and stood there. Will not be... More

Ingredient has a nice menu with pizza, salads, soups, and sandwiches. I had the Yard Bird hot sandwich and I enjoyed it. I also had the pepper chips, which were kettle chips with a Cajun spice. The service was fine, but didn't feel like they were making much of an effort to be friendly.

Decided to try it because I'm generally a fan of chef owned/operated restaurants that have different menus. This place has an amazing menu, I would just order something other than the turkey burger. My order wasn't right (although they fixed it) and the food was just ok. If you are concerned about price, a burger, cup of soup, and fountain... More

While in town for a training, my team and I headed here for lunch when it was suggested to us by another colleague who is a local. Our lunch was very tasty, and a good value for the $$. The only downside was how dirty this place was. The area that you get your fountain drink, napkins, condiments, and silverware... More

We eat here just about every time we are in KC. Fresh, made to order hamburgers and salads and more.

This place used to be great but it's gone way downhill, which explains why it always looks empty now. I was overcharged for a dessert bar, $2 more than what the sign said. When I brought it up, I got attitude and excuses that they didn't know about the sign that was ON THE REGISTER. I was never greeted when... More

We had a great lunch at Ingredient on the Plaza! I think for the price, the food was interesting and tasty. It's a little bit of a contemporary diner atmosphere but for the value, I think it was excellent.

This is a restaurant with a order bar and they bring the food to the table. Nothing bad, but not a restaurant with a waiter. Just mentioning it, if you care. That said, delicious food. One of the best veggie burger I've ever had. Clean, not too loud. Nice people.
