The restaurant's core is German food, but the secret here is wine. The wife (the husband is the chef) is a real connoisseur of wine, and she stocks all sorts of wine, not just German or Austrian, but French, Italian, Californian, etc. I've eaten here several times, and my suggestion is to just talk with her, and let her choose...

We want for an early dinner on Tuesday evening at 6:30pm. The four of us, along with one other couple, were the only ones in the restaurant. Service was inadequate as the waitress acted like it was her first night or two on the job. The food was average at best for three of us, but I had the buffalo... More

I don't typically review restaurants in my home town, but wow! I enjoyed a wonderful meal at Affare and feel compelled to spread the word. Great environment, excellent service and outstanding German (and non-German) food. Don't miss the painted table for desert--you can't beat having your own private pastry chef creating at your table right in front of your eyes!

Best meal/experience we've had in a long time! I don't know where to start. Okay - Amelia--personable, went out of her way to answer our questions, efficient, unobtrusive and attentive service. Food - creative German. We both ordered the soup of the day--chilled cucumber--perfect for a hot, summer day. The consistency was smooth, the flavor delicate, the garnishes exquisite (piped... More

Four of us went to Affare in Kansas City last Saturday night. This was my first trip there. The two guys started with their version of a charcuterie board that was amazing. It was filled with all sorts of meats from mortadella to pate. There were cheeses and their wonderful home made pickles and a board of breads that were... More

This was just another awesome recommendation from the Culinary Tour we took in KC. We had lunch here and was welcomed by one of the owner's Katrin. The space was simply beautiful and we look forward to another exciting dinner evening here. The food was fresh, artistic and simply scrumptious. Definitely a contender for James Beard nomination.

Affare is one of the best and most unique dining experiences you'll have in KC. You'll try things you never thought you like/order and you'll love it. You have exceptional dishes with exciting preparations, but with ingredients you previously found ordinary or even mundane. Try their outstanding cocktails as well.

This food was amazing from the tea to the streusel. I had no idea what to expect with German food, but I loved every bite. The hand crafted brats must be sampled, and the stroganoff was divine. The atmosphere and presentation are also top notch.
