We stopped by here for brunch and was pleasantly surprised. They greated us with a pleasant smile and chit chat. The atmosphere was very cozy and comfortable and the food was delicious. We will definitely go there again.

The Drop was a pretty place with brick and chandeliers and a pretty bar and cute couches in the front. It looked like a nice quiet, dark, romantic place. But it wasn't. The maitre d was dressed in unattractive, sloppy jeans shorts and paid no attention to us until we went up to her at the bar and then she... More

By far one of the best happy hours in the city. Parking is all very close. Cool outdoor patio to sit on. Good beer menu little light on the wine side. Service was very good, couple starters to share and a 30 plate of gastronomy shots. Great time as always.

The Drop is a fairly small, trendy little spot in Martini Corner. Great for weeknight cocktails or an evening out on the weekend. Their food is really good - the Bruchetta allows you to pick four types then you receive four slices of each, so 16 in total. Definitely shareable. The staff are very friendly but a few of the...

I have been here twice now- the first time for a lunch with family, the second time for a get-together with friends on a Friday night. The first visit was decent enough. The restaurant was dead and the service so/so but everyone enjoyed their food. This place has good bruschetta for sure! The second time we had extremely terrible service..... More

Good prices, great food and a killer atmosphere. Super specialty cocktails and BA small plates. We've been several times and have never had a bad drink or plate.

A group of my coworkers met to have a farewell happy hour for fellow coworker. The service was good (there were about 10 of us at a time with people filtering in and out). The waitress was nice and did a good job keeping our tabs straight. We sat inside as the deck was full. Their small plates were really... More

Was looking for a nice intimate setting with great service & good food. The Drop is located in the heart of Kansas City Mo “Nightlife” & it was very relaxing, fun, & serves some of the BEST MARTINI’S! The service was with a smile & our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu items. The restaurant was clean & reminded... More

Started off the night with a plate of shots. Its close to a jello shot but with a little extra science involved. Then we ordered a round of Bruschetta which were great, large pieces and heavy on the toppings. Drinks were great, awesome beer selection. Will return when we are in the area.

Went during Happy Hour on a Thursday night. Small bar where I sat. Bartender talkative and helpful with beer menu (all bottles) when making recommendations. Happy Hour has shrimp choice, cheese, meats, and Bruschetta which another bar patron (who turned out to be a colleague) said was excellent. He and his wife go frequently and love the place. They live... More
