We visit Bluestem off and on throughout the year for Sunday Brunch and love it. We decided to spend New Year's Eve with them this year and are very glad we did. The seven course meal was perfection!! Foods that I normally wouldn't have ordered but I am so glad were part of the meal. I would highly recommend Bluestem... More

This is clearly an upscale and innovative restaurant , with an open kitchen with 5 chefs, and multi-course menu option. Reservations are expected, especially on weekends, with weekend seatings around 6--6;30 PM OR 8--8;30 PM. The menu offers several options, and we each selected three savory courses,no desert. (Be advised that you will be offered sweets at the end of... More

We came here to celebrate my husband's Birthday and were expecting the same type of experience we had here several years ago when we came to celebrate our anniversary. The chef at this restaurant has won the James Beard award and I believe his wife is the pastry chef. The meal we had several years ago was amazing. It was... More

We visited Bluestem for my birthday. Even though Kansas City has excellent restaurants, this was as sophisticated as any restaurant I've dined at in major cities. The 3,5 or 10 course menu has many unexpected choices. Perhaps the most unique was the sturgeon, beet, and short rib dish my husband got for his entree. It had a horseradish cream and... More

It was the first time that I spent over $100 per person for a dining experience. It what also the first time that I spent over $50 per person AND completely saw the value. Coincidence that... More

I went with a group of 5 and in the dining room it is required for the table to select a 3, 5, or 10 course meal. We selected the 5 course meal and it was excellent. Two people ordered the fish and said it was dry/over-cooked but other than that it was excellent. The chef sent small amuse' between... More

The food is amazing! The French Toast is the best I have ever had and the service was excellent. The owners definitely know how to run a restaurant and we were very pleased.

We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings. The care in preparation and presentation was phenomenal! Every ingredient was well thought and each dish was as much fun to eat with your eyes before actually tasting. Fantastic!

I highly recommend the Sunday brunch! Excellent meal. Reasonably priced and we enjoyed wonderful service. We had not been there in years. It appears the restaurant has been updated or remodeled since our last visit. I had the Eggs Benedict and my wife had the french toast. Make sure you have a glass of the freshly squeezed OJ.

Excellent brunch. I'd recommend the Bloody Mary! I requested very crisp bacon...our waiter checked back several times to ask if it was done to my satisfaction.
