We came for brunch and had a great experience on Sunday. Great coktails to start the day off and good food as well. We enjoyed a great ceasar salad followed by a steack and some pancakes. The food portion are perfect size and the quality is great. Great value for such good quality.

Shared lunch with a friend here. Great food, ambience and service. The duck empenadas and shrimp risotto as appetizers were fantastic. I had the halibut which was very fresh, lightly sauteed with young vegetables. Perfect portion size for lunch. Wonderful wine list as well. You will not be disappointed!

We went with friends and were surprised to find a quiet upscale experience inside! Our dinner was great. I had the snapper...perfectly prepared and surrounded be spring veggies. Started with the Mai tai which was perfect. I ended dinner with the German chocolate cake which was perfect...not traditional, but a chocolate lover's dream. I'm ready to go back.

We went for Saturday lunch. They have a Prixe Fixe menu at $18 which is a real deal. It's a 3-course meal including salad, main entree and dessert. All were top notch. Entrees were a grilled fontina cheese sandwich or grilled walleye. The grilled cheese was the grilled cheese I've been trying to make at home. Really good. The walleye was perfectly cooked and was over a bed of excellent risotto. Desserts were either "donuts" or chocolate bread pudding. Both were excellent. Presentation of all dishes were top notch and professional.
Chef Carl Thome-Thomsen was recently among three chefs nominated from Kansas City as a semi-finalist for the James Beard Best Chef of the Midwest award and is truly deserving. It's a long drive for us but we'll definitely be back, particularly for dinner.
As with most top-end restaurants, expect to pay a bit more for the quality and presentation. And, if you expect Applebee's quantities, go to Applebee's.
I'd put this up there with any restaurant in the US, not just KC. Highly recommended.
