Our group of 8 + an infant were treated to another fantastic Prix Fixe menu on Thanksgiving (our 2nd time visiting Affare for this holiday). The food was outstanding and the wine pairings were en pointe! The staff went above and beyond to make our dinner special, including offering our infant son extra breadsticks and a sippy cup! It was... More

Friends, if your event is around 100 folks, Martin and Katrin Heuser will do you right. Award winning food, farm to table, superb wines, and a friendly business relationship are hallmarks of their private dining operations. We had our wedding at Affäre on Veterans Day. With the exception of my bride selecting her choice of the main course (braised short... More

We stopped in for dessert. The apple strudel with in-house made vanilla ice cream was delicious as was the chocolate tower. The service was superb and the overall experience delightful.

A delightful jewel of a restaurant. The food was excellent and creative. This may be the best restaurant in Kansas City. Comfortable and close banquette seating in the back near the bar made our evening so very romantic as we snuggled close and tucked in to the perfect dinner. This place is a keeper. Don't miss Affäre when your plans... More

Some friends invited us to meet them here while we were in Kansas City. An address on Main Street is not hard to find. We couldn't say the same for parking, and going into the restaurant, we were a bit skeptical from seeing what things looked like from the outside. It was quaint, not particularly exciting decour, a bit noisy.... More

What can one say about this place.. Booked a reservation at the last minute.. Outside it doesn't look as classy as it is inside.. Walk in and see one of the coolest and best looking restaurants in Kansas city.. Waiter was very good at his job and the food was pretty damn good... We ate and drank well and the... More

My wife and I went to Affare last night and it was an excellent dinner. The salads were very good especially the smoked spinach salad that is delivered in a quart mason jar on to your plate. They "smoke" the spinach in the jar for a fabulous taste. I had the duck and it consisted of duck four ways. Sliced... More

I reviewed this restaurant before with a title of traditional German food. It has been awhile since we have been here and the menu is now completely different. We called as we were approaching the restaurant because the lot where we normally park seems to be blocked off. There has been a lot of construction in this area of downtown... More

Service was great and so was the ambience but the food left a lot to be desired. Our crawfish vegetable medley was salty and too creamy. Sausages were alright but the duck was too chewy. Presentation was poor. Food was typical midwestern, creamy, large portions, lots of meat, nothing great.

My best friend and I came here for Mother's Day brunch. This wasn't our first choice; however, it was open and they did seat us right away. The parking situation is a little rough. It was raining heavily that day, but as the gods would have it, there was street parking available right outside the entrance. Brunch: Sausage, potatoes, and... More
