We each ordered them medium rare and his was exactly on spot, mine was just a bit to done. It came with cheesy cheddar... read more

In past visits, EBT has been a fairly consistent experience. Yesterday's visit...not so much. The plus side: Our waiter was fantastic. He has been around a long time, apparently, and was very attentive. Other wait staff were as well in terms of refilling water, etc. Our waiter told us that a very large group (18 people) had been seated but... More

Truly enjoyed lunch at restaurant week. The salad was pretty good, but the trout almondine was outstanding. Perfectly cooked and delicious with rice and a crispy slaw. The dessert was a little surprise....simply a tiny truffle on a plate with a dime sized dab of whipped crème. It was very good but most restaurants have a more impressive dessert offering.... More

Came here after several neighbors told us about the place. The food, serves and ambiance is just excellent. A pleasant dinner place and we will return. All of the starters and mains were cooked to perfection and the wine pour by the glass was huge. Reservations are a must. The food is a bit pricey for the area, but the... More

For some reason I hadn't been here since the mid-1980's. I'm glad I finally went back for lunch with a friend. The food was great and it was such a nice and quiet atmosphere where we could visit easily. I definitely won't wait 30 years to go again!

We ate here with about 15 colleagues for lunch. The service was excellent, great food and the portions were really ample. Most had to-go bags.

This is probably my favorite happy hour hang out that includes incredible live entertainment, great food, and beverages. One of the best bar tenders in the area. There is a happy hour menu that is good to 7pm plus full menu until closing. I have been coming here for lunch, dinner, and happy hour for more years than I care... More

EBT is a romantic restaurant tucked away in a nondescript bank building next to a major freeway, but WOW what a great place it is with equally great food. The name comes from the abbreviation of an old department building, Emery Bird Thayer, opened in 1890 in downtown Kansas City. The building was closed in 1968. The restaurant currently houses...

My wife and I enjoyed great food, wine and entertainment at EBT's this past weekend. Roz (and Nathan) performed and made the evening very special. Mr. Royce, the restaurant manager, introduced us to a great wine and the pairings were perfect.
