Description: Aixois is a classic French bistro in Kansas City’s Brookside neighborhood, just a few blocks from the world-famous Country Club Plaza. Nestled on the Trolley Trail in the Crestwood Shops, Aixois offers Kansas City’s best outdoor patio and an intimate, relaxed dining room. Emmanuel Langalde, a native of Aix-en-Provence, opened Aixois with his wife Megan in 2001. Chef Emmanuel, inspired by the techniques and recipes of his native France, offers a distinct menu focused on fresh, organic, seasonal ingredients. He also works with area farmers, butchers, and bakers to bring local flavor to his classic French cuisine.

We went there on a spring week night and the patio was full. The hostess cleared a window table for us which was nice. We had the mussels appetizer, steak and shrimp entries and a very good wine recommended by the waiter. Don't be in a hurry if you go there, just sit back and relax. Dinner for 2 was about $125.

We have been dining at Aixois at least once or twice a month since they opened in 2001. The Mussels in Roquefort Cream Sauce, the pomme frites (best in town), the scallops, veal liver and any special of any evening have always been terrific - in fact, we have never had a bad meal. Service is always professional and friendly. They are on Open Table and a member of The Orginals club (a dining club for locally owned restaurants). Highly recommend this one to all.

We tried this locally-owned restaurant with a Groupon. The food was very good, as was the waiter and the wine selection. They were very busy the night we visited (seemed like a local hang out for rich people). The place was small, but seemed more crowded than intimate. People were dressed very casually and were boisterous. Not really a good place for a special dinner, though priced for it.

While I love this restaurant, I am only slightly saddened that a meal here is very expensive. A dinner for 4 came to almost $200. Nonetheless, the atmosphere is great, and the food is even better.
