Had reservations made and confirmed online through Jaspers website but the reservation was not located by the hostess upon arrival despite me showing the confirmation on my phone. After approximately a 10 minute wait we were seated. The atmosphere was nice, a little dark. The...courses of the meal are a little too spread out but the food was perfect temperature and very good quality. Mel, our server was outstanding. She checked in often but not too much, was friendly and very knowledgeable. Our meals were very good and desserts were perfect.More

My only point here is to suggest that you ignore any negatives and form your own opinion about this culinary institution in KC. I took dates there in High School and throughout our now 40 year marriage; had a private party there for a special...birthday; we've had lunches, dinners and signed up for cooking classes over the years as well as Jasper's special events. Like I said, go form your own opinion. No business is perfect. But Jasper's (in my opinion) is really the gold standard in KC and not just for the food. It is a family owned business allowing new generations kids to learn and participate in the business. We've gotten to know the owners over the years and frankly feel like some little part of a big family. From the original black tie establishment to the current iteration we've never failed to feel at home, well cared for and very, very well fed. We've eaten all over the country and the world. In fact many places with Jasper's recommendation or even JJ's or Leonard's calls ahead for us. Jasper's stacks up against all we've tried. So, it's a lot more than the food which is wonderful, but for the experience you can have. I think if you go to any restaurant with a chip on your shoulder or fail to communicate your expectations up front you may have a poor experience. Over a lifetime we've always had fine food and very enjoyable experiences there including our most recent this past week. Think how rare this kind of long term experience is getting to be in any city, much less KC. Strongly recommended.More

We were in Overland Park, Kansas, for a medical procedure at University of Kansas hospital in Overland Park. For our supper meal, we decided to eat at Jasper's Italian Restaurant. It was after 5:00 P. M. and did not have a reservation but took a...chance. They did not disappoint us, they warmly welcomed us and seated us immediately. Our server was most attentive and try his best to fulfill our every wish. My 10 year old grandson wanted mozzarella sticks and our server explained to him that was not on the menu but had fried ravioli, he loved it. There were so many dishes to choose from and we finally made up our minds. When our food arrived and I took that first bite, I thought I had died and went to heaven, so delicious. The chef came out of the kitchen to see if everything was okay and of course, we told him it certainly was. We highly recommend trying this restaurant and even though we are from out-of-town, I definitely will come back.More

After reading the reviews I have found the bad reviews to be totally wrong. My wife and I just returned home from Jasper's and let me tell you, it was great. The staff was excellent and we even met the owner. The menu is quite...extensive and took me a bit to decide on a dish. My wife had the Tortellini Romano and I had the Ravioli Di Ricotta with meatballs and Italian sausage added. Both meals were excellent presentation and flavor wise. The serving size was quite generous. For dessert my wife had Cannolis and I had Torta Di Mele which were also very good. With our drinks and all the additions our ticket was $108 which I find reasonable for an upscale restaurant. You WILL need to make a reservation as they are quite busy and fill up fast. I think the only gripe I found to be somewhat true was the carpet does need replaced but who goes to a restaurant to examine the carpet? Definitely going back again!!!More

The hostess staff were a little stuffy at first, but warmed up quickly. We didn’t have a reservation, but they were able to seat us fairly quickly. I liked that they politely told my son that he had to remove his ball cap- always better...relieved when it’s not mom saying it! It was very hot where we were sitting, the waitress agreed and turned down the heat. Our waitress was funny and she was really fast. We were her last table and we knew she wanted to get out of there and we had kids with us, so the fast service was appreciated. She made recommendations that were spot on. Everyone in our group liked their meal. The escargot was very good. We tried 4 different desserts and all were excellent. Although I didn’t care for the pumpkin cannoli, but the traditional was wonderful! Would definitely go back if in the area again!More

Slow service, mediocre food, awful Caesar salad that we didn't find out until after the fact that it wasn't included with the mediocre entree and charged us $8.00 for it. Overpriced, pretentious, and misleading. The icing on the cake was when the server informed us...that under no circumstances could he split our checks up with a party of six. The last thing you want to do after a meal at a restaurant is sit there for half an hour figuring out the check, especially when we'd been there for two hours and a couple of people had to leave early. When I brought it to the owner's attention, he childishly stormed off into the kitchen with a huff after giving me an earful about how he couldn't deal with me when I had simply brought these things to his attention. I would give this place zero stars if I could. Just because you've been doing something for "70 years" the same way, doesn't mean you should be doing it the same way 70 years later. Either get into the 21st century and treat your customers with respect, or get out of the business. I can't believe all the good reviews this dump is getting. We will NEVER be back.More

We ate on Friday night, June 11 right after a rainstorm and the "creek" was flowing so fast it looked like a river! That was an amazing view. The service and food was very good. The place itself seemed a little claustrophobic to me though....Save room for dessert!More

We recently dined at Jaspers for lunch. We asked for a spot in the restaurant where we could have quiet conversation. The hostess seated us in a booth. There were plexiglass partitions between booths for COVID safety. My guest had the sole special. I had...the salmon special. Each was $17.95 and included salads and sliced potatoes grilled in onions. Our server, Kyle, was very attentive and professional. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. There was a large variety of dessert options, but we decided not to indulge. The restaurant closes at 2pm, but keeps the bar open well beyond that. We were enjoying our conversation so much that we wanted to stay and visit. Kyle and the management at Jaspers were very accommodating, as we stayed two more hours. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and had a wonderful time chatting. I recommend Jaspers to anyone seeking a nice upscale meal where the service is excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming.More

great food as always..but portions on curbside takeout vary. Tonight smaller container. smaller portions...no extra rolls as requested. nice staff..delicious food. But for 50 bucks...seems to vary based on chef filling order?

I dined recently with friends, and had not been to Jasper's since the '80s (!) -- when I realized it was still in KC I was anxious to try it. Our server, Elaine, was amazing. Very welcoming, helpful, and attentive -- far above what I've...experienced. The food was very good -- I had a veal dish, and my friends had pasta dishes. We finished the meal with a wonderful chocolate dessert, and a surprisingly delicious sundae with a balsamic reduction. The warm bread (that was constantly refilled!) was very good as well. I would highly recommend it, and intend to go back and try some other dishes!More

IT was a phenomenal experience. And I say experience because it reminds me when I was growing up, and how much detail the restaurant put into the whole event. I have been there 4 times now, and have yet to ever disappoint me. The Owner...or family members are always out and coming to your table check on things, make sure your 100% happy, they don't rush you. I love ordering my favorite Dom Perignon and enjoying it. The last part, the desert 3 tops high full of any ones favorite on there! The whole staff is so particular to detail, its beyond amazing. Please note one thing, if you read any of the bad reviews, don't let it influence your decision. You can read between the lines that there was more to the story than they wrote. The owner would not ever allow anything like this to happen, or handle it like described. It actually upsets me to read someones ignorance, If your in the area for business or vacation, this is one place to stop by and enjoy a great evening!More

For my daughter's 21st birthday we went to Jasper's. There was 10 of us total. I had the Scampi Alla Livornese with angel hair pasta. The shrimp were cooked perfect and the sauce coates the pasta just right. Flavorful and delicious! My husband loves their...veal parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana. So flavorful and cooked to perfection. My daughter's favorite is the Linguini Alla San Remo without the calamari and not spicy. There was a great portion of seafood to pasta ratio. I have tried each one of these dishes and can tell you they are authentic Italian dishes. The portions are huge!! The calamari is battered and fried perfectly. The sauce is just like my husband's Italian grandmother use to make. Actually it's better. The dinner salads are fresh and dressed properly. Love the option blue cheese crumbs to the salad. The desserts are to die for. My favorite is the chocolate cake made with mayonnaise. It's so moist and decadent. My daughter loves the tartufo al cuccilto. Vanilla bean ice cream covered in chocolate biscotti cookies with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Great selection of wines and spirits. My husband loves their bloody mary's. From the time we walked in to the restaurant to the time we left everyone was very attentive and professional. Our waitress Mel was awesome. The atmosphere was perfect and everyone followed the protocols with mask and cleaning. Definitely going back!More
