“Consistently Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've never understood why wine bars have had a tough go in KC. This is one of the oldest and best. The selection of wines by the glass is pretty good and some of the selections are a little different, which is good. The food are service are always good. Some nights there is music.

“Do not eat food here, drink...maybe”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

I don't like to give a bad review but the food at Boozefish was really terrible. We had two very dry, roast beef sandwiches. The food was slow coming out of the kitchen. It just seemed like they didn't have their food service act together. My wine was turning, tasted a bit like sherry. Again, they just didn't seem to have the whole food and wine bar thing put together.
Very nice selection of wine and beer. I really appreciated that and the effort it takes to bring interesting selections to the public.

“A very cool urban hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011

Boozefish is a very cool hangout place. Good food, great wines, beers and cocktails. Maija, the owner, makes an awesome martini. Her menu uses fresh, locally grown items whenever possible -- fresh is always good and that is especially true here. Her wine list is inventive and changes with the season, so you can continually sample and discover new wines to enjoy. Plus she routinely supports a variety of local causes with special events as well as local artists by displaying their paintings at Boozefish on a rotating basis. Boozefish was voted to have the best patio for dogs in Kansas City by Pitch. Cheers!
