This place is a hidden gem for Excelsior Springs! Upscale dining, historic and the food and drinks are out of this world. I have the Lasagna. It is hand made and off the charts good. Staff is second to none. You want the best in Excelsior, you must try.

Ventana was a delight. We wondered in on my birthday at the recommendation of the barista at Mug. What a find! Lovely, romantic atmosphere, plenty of space and great, friendly service! The food however was the best - the burgundy steak was soft and delicious smothered with wine and red onion soaked portobellos. The grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes were... More

We were searching for someplace new to try. Our food was great. The wait time for service was acceptable. The restaurant was crowded. It took me more time to decide on which meal to get. I definitely want to go back and try other dishes and hopefully one time I'll even leave room for dessert. I only have one complaint.... More

Oh man, I literally ate so much I thought I might die. Everything was incredible. We started with the smoked chicken dip, and it was insane. Kind of spicy, but I couldn't stop eating. Then I had a caeser salad, and it was pretty good. For our main, my partner had a KC Strip steak, loaded mashed potatoes, and broccoli.... More

Started with the artichoke spinach dip. Very tasty. Really enjoyed the Italian fare. I had the lasagna which had some really tasty marinara and it was a good sized portion. Definitely delicious. My girlfriend had the asiago alfredo and added shrimp to it. It was freakin amazing. We finished the meal with a great slice of chocolate/peanut butter pie Service... More

Based on previous reviews we decided to eat here during a Second Friday Town event. Disappointed. The Appetizer was good. It was the hot Chicken dip. My California Chicken sandwich was bland. No seasoning. My husband ordered a Reuben and it was served dry, no dressing. We shared a Bread pudding for dessert and it lacked flavor, very bland. Service... More

We like this little restaurant on the main drag downtown because it is in a vintage building and has the atmosphere of coziness and warmth. The staff is always friendly and the food quite good. Good soups, salads, and sandwiches are what we look for but there is much more on the menu.

If your like us..Not from Excelsior. This is well worth the drive. The owners of Ventana always go all out to make sure everyone is welcomed. We have eaten here for several years and have never been disappointed.
