The people at Bluestem made us feel like honored guests throughout our memorable evening. We chose the five courses option with wine pairings. We could not have been more delighted at the quality of the food, the beautiful presentation, the helpful explanations of the ingredients and cooking methods, and the way our servers were always available but never intrusive. We... More

Really looking forward to dining at Bluestem. Made reservations several weeks prior to the occasion and provided credit card information as requested by the restaurant to confirm the reservation. On the evening of the event, we were kept waiting to be seated in a drafty entry way for 45 minutes even with a reservation and arriving 5 minutes early. Once... More

This is a very expensive restaurant but for me....it was well worth it. I love eating out with my wife and spending 2 to 3 hours talking and enjoying the food and company. If you don't like that type of experience then you will leave saying...that dinner could have purchased two weeks of groceries for a family of four. We... More

Bluestem would be a top-tier restaurant in any city Ambiance and food quality superb; service, wine list and overall know-how of the staff combine for a memorable dining experience. Most people choose a 3- or 5-course dinner with optional wine pairings. You won't find the normal appetizers and salads here - things are presented with an eye for design on... More

Always excellent, best food and service in Missouri. Only true tasting menu in KC. Similar to Per Se and Eleven Madison Park but no where near as expensive.

We were here many years ago and hope it would be as good as we remembered. Maybe it was better! The service is impeccable. We chose the 5 tasting menu and were not a bit disappointed. The wine list is wonderful, too, and you can choose different sizes of pours. Choosing the 3 1/2 oz. pour means you can try... More

Hosted a business meal here for 4 people. Did the 5 course tasting without wine but ordered wine and cocktails separately. Sommelier was great as were the servers, bartenders and hostess. Overall great experience and would recommend.
