Finally got around the checking out the new menu and I love it! My dinner companion and I shared the Salmon Gravlax, which was delicious! For my main course, I opted for the Fettuccini with Squid Ink (a WINNER!) and my companion had the Steak Frites. Word to the wise, the Béarnaise sauce was to die for! And as always,... More

We came on a busy night when they were celebrating Bastille Day so we had to wait a while to get our food. But everything was worth waiting for! The cucumber mint soup was the perfect starter, as was the cheese plate. My daughter loved the escargot and I am a big fan of the scallops and risotto. All the... More

So many wonderful reviews of this place that I don't think I can improve. Our waitress Emily (aka Nicole Kidman look a like ) was incredible!!! Food was created with a wonderful French flair. With a group of 10 our meals all came out within 35 minutes. Unlike a true French brasserie we did not receive a basket of bread... More

We keep coming back to this little gem; it never disappoints. Either a full dinner, late night snacks or just a casual drop-in for a quick bite, this place always satisfies us.

Long time a favorite, this restaurant has updated it's menu and it's presentations. The hand crafted drinks have always been great and the service is exceptional. Expect a visit from the owner with a suggestion of the day. Well worth a visit.

We went here for a girls weekend brunch on a Sunday. We had reservations and you definitely need them. Food was fantastic and brunch entrees include a beverage. Portion sizes were plentiful. We loved everything we each ordered. Service was very attentive. We will definitely go hear again on our next girls wknd to KC.

I brought my sons and a friend and his son here. This is a better venue for adults, but they did great making us feel welcome. The food and cocktails here are great. The ambiance is fun, not at all formal. The tables and chairs are a bit rickety, but the staff and charm of the place made up for... More

The 6 of us enjoyed the atmosphere, service and especially the food! I had the salmon. It was served in an amazing sauce and well prepared. My husband had the chicken and wishes he could prepare something like it at home. The balsamic sauce was superb.

Two different friends suggested we try Westport Café and were surprised at our disappointing experience. The staff were not very attentive, the food was mediocre at best. We started with appetizers of steak tartar, muscles and escargot. The tartar came with a big chunk of gristle/ bone in it, the muscles were mushy and luke warm and the escargot somewhat... More

We visited with friends when in town. We had dinner reservations and unfortunately this is a very small restaurant and we were finally seated an hour plus later. The owner/manager did offer us a round of drinks or an appetizer while we waited at the bar after 40 minutes. The menu is small but with solid options. All the entrees... More
