That's how Affare describes itself. It was restaurant week when we went so it's a set 3 course meal and it's pretty good. We had german food at Grunnauer before and this one is less traditional and more gourmet. Be warned, parking is hard to come by with all the road construction. On to the meal- the affare soup is...

My son had been on me for some time to try this place. I spent some time in Germany and used to be fluent. Loved the menu for this special week. Salad light and fresh. The Salmon pasta cream dish was wonderful because of all the flavors, yet was not too heavy as some cream dishes can be-perfect serving size.... More

Affare has always provided great food, great service, and has also had wonderful bar service with good wines and beers. We tried brunch today and no surprise, they handle brunch well too. The service was low key and excellent. The Jaegerschnitzel was scrumptious with a wonderful mushroom sauce. The Affare omlet was very good as well. The breads/toast are tasty... More

We made reservations for Christmas dinner at Affare for 1:30. We came early and much to my surprise, were promptly seated. This is the first time we've eaten at Affare as we live out of town and were in KC for the holiday weekend. My husband had the trout special and I had the duck. While neither is particularly a...

After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately, it was just ok. The roasted pork was slightly dry. The sauerkraut was very good, and the brat sampler meal and potatoes and onions were very good as well. The meals were fairly priced, but the drinks and desserts were not, particularly given the portions. If you... More

I have been to Affare 4 times - lunch, dinner and brunch - and have enjoyed it very much each time. They have traditional German dishes, such as Jagerschnitzel and Saurbraten, which are prepared in what one might call nouvelle German cuisine. They are lighter and more elegant than the traditional version. The fixed price Thanksgiving dinner was excellent -... More

We have eaten here twice before and loved the food. This time we decided to try them for Thanksgiving. Wonderful food, great wine pairings. We left very satisfied.

We enjoyed a lovely appetizer platter named "Sea." It included a variety of generously portioned dishes, including octopus bacon. I challenge anyone who loves bacon to try this version. I think I might like it better than the normal pork version! For entrees, we enjoyed the risotto and the sauerbraten. Both were very good. The menu includes many creative options,... More

Our group of eight enjoyed the prix fixe Thanksgiving menu and was blown away by the quality and flavors. The service was fantastic too. Highly recommend this place! It was a memorable Thanksgiving dinner for sure. We will be back!

There's a lot to really like about this restaurant. First off - it's local! The owners are very good about using local and seasonal ingredients. (And you'll often see them interacting with guests.) This is not your "traditional" German restaurant... although there are some very authentic German dishes on the menu. Chef Heuser brings a very modern flair to German... More
