“Good food. Parking a challenge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The food was very good----French bistro. Had crossaint bread pudding that was the best I have ever had. Go alittle early to have time to park. May have to park a few blocks away--we ate there on a Friday night. Alaskan Char--worth repeating!!

“Friendly Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Walking around Westport on a Friday night we spotted the WC&B and thought it looked like an adult oasis in a sea of drunken 20-somethings. And it was. It reminded us of places we had been to in DC. The service was friendly (despite the fact that we split a steak frites plate), and we enjoyed chatting with one of the regulars who was sitting at the next table. Good drinks--although I have never in my life been charged $1 per drink extra for "rocks"--ice ! Steak frites with bearnaise was tasty, if a bit tough. Loud, but that is often the price to pay for a cool atmosphere.

“Loud Bistro in Westport KC”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

The food is good in a salty MidWestern way. I could have done with about half at least the salt. But the room is just too too loud. Folks around me are all complaining. Reviews day this is good for brunch. Maybe the atmosphere is more conducive for that.

“Great food and great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

This small cafe has great food at really reasonable prices. The dishes that our table got were all great: salad nicose with seared tuna, the Arctic Char, grilled cheese with basal and tomato and chicken sandwich. A really comfortable place to eat alone or with a group.

“Old time cocktails with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

First off the food is outstanding. Great little menu executed perfectly. There take on a old fashion is a welcome suprise. I would highly recommend this restaurant to be your first choice. Entire place is tiny but its worth the wait. Steak fritz and Artic Char were both just perfect. Was a great night with great drinks, Service from Kia was attentive without being pushy.
