“Rieger really ready, right? YES”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Despite the mixup of one parties lamb dish (they served the wrong one) Rieger is a nice addition to KC options which is overwhelmed with BBQ and steak places. Don't get me wrong, KC area serves some of the best BBQ and steak in the country.

Rieger is small, a bit loud but energetic. No "comfort" food here. Just great reaches like Pork soup, Sous-Vide steaks, FRESH FRESH FRESH ingredient salads and killer bourbon brownie. These guys are on to doing it right when it comes to fresh and local and matching wines are plentiful in a decent wine list. They (Justin mostly) did a wonderful job and was very attentive.

ASK for kitchen table seating!

The underground bar was NOT an option. "Manifesto" is supposed to be the rage for mixologists but with max seating of 35 text early or you stand no chance to get down. A definite must on our return.

“Cool atmosphere, average food”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Our group of 6 had high expectations but we all decided it was pretty average food. We had the ribeye, KC Strip and striped bass. The steaks were very average, even a little tough compared to a well-marbled ribeye I am used to. The green beans were undercooked. Presentation and service was great. Atmosphere is great. Just hoping our meal would have been worth taking the leftovers home.

“Ingredients well done”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

I had a nice business dinner at the Rieger recently. Since I was in KC I chose the KC Strip and it was excellent. Well aged beef and so tender. The service was good and they had a nice wine list. The only thing that keeps me from 5 stars is the price-value proposition, but food quality is excellent.

“Yummo”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

If you are a foody this place should be at the top of your list! They change their menu seasonally and then have daily specials. Their rabbit is amazing anyway they prepare it. Make sure you order a hand crafted drink as well.

“KC Classic”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Went here for my birthday and LOVED it! It was First Fridays, but the drinks were still fast and the bartenders were SO knowledgeable! Plus, they even gave me a free drink because it was my birthday!
