Re: “Justus Drugstore

The food is good, but the outrageous ticket times and poor service will ruin your experience. It is also not a good idea to drink anything and drive 45 minutes back to the city.

Re: “Justus Drugstore

Went to Justus the first time the other day. Went last minute with no reservation on a tuesday night. We expected to wait. 1 hour wait for the patio. No biggie, had a drink and sat around and looked over the place. After the hour finally got seated on patio. 45 minutes later we got our drinks we orderd. 1 hour after that we got our entree...a kobe burger. Now if we had orderd a full meal I would have expected a wait, but we are now 2 hours and 45 minutes into getting two drinks and a burger on the patio. An hour later we finally finish dessert and can leave. Here are the cold hard facts.... 3 hours and 45 minutes to get served a burger on the patio. Sorry, Justus, no matter how you spread the home made condiments...this is completely unacceptable. We are going to try dining inside next time. If we have a similar experience, then no matter how tasty the food might be, we will not be back. We understand that they are actually "cooking" all the food. A leisurely meal is certainly nice, but waiting for trees to grow and fruit to ripen so you can serve it is a little tedious for your cutomers. The patio should have a quicker service time. The menu is grilled burgers and sausages..... the jury is out.

Re: “Aixois

9-24-2008: I just moved to KC and have been trying out the local eateries over the last couple months. I'm a huge fan of French bistro, but this did one did not satisfy my cravings. Overall, the food, service and ambiance were very average. No major complaints, just average. I'm not sure if the reviewer and I made it to the same restaurant, but this place did not feel sexy…it felt every bit of 4,500 miles from Paris. I'm still eating my way around the city, but the best bistro fare I have had thus far has been at Le Frou Frog.

Re: “Aixois

I recently dined into Aixois for the first time yesterday (Monday 11/26) evening to celebrate my birthday. I am new to the Brookside area and was pleased when I discovered one of the Kansas City originals within walking distance of my home. I WAS WRONG. When we first arrived the hostess leads us to a table towards the back. Nice and quiet. The place was steady, but still relatively slow considering it's a Monday. The bus boy, who was very pleasant, presented my date and I with waters. Immediately after, an obnoxious waiter resembling Baloo from "The Jungle Book", greets us with a salutation similar to one you would expect at Macaroni Grill, or any other run-of-the-mill chain restaurant. Rude and over-anxious, he immediately wanted a drink order. My friend and I both needed, oh, maybe 45 seconds to look over the wine list. My date needed more time and I told him I was going to stick with water. Baloo did not seem pleased. At this point, although feeling rushed, the experience was not totally ruined. Baloo returned and my friend ordered a French beer. Again, I explained to Baloo that I only wanted water. Baloo not happy! My date and I ordered the two most expensive entrees on the menu and Baloo retrieved our menus. Baloo delivered our soup and salad and then delivered my entree. I ordered salmon and it was entirely overcooked. Our food had already taken such a long time, I really wasn't in the mood to send it back. My friend's Steak au Poives, however, was delicious. He checked back before we'd had a chance to taste our food, and offered my friend another beer. My friend said, "not now, but in a few minutes". I notice a man in a bad suit walking around to various different tables around the restaurant. Ours, you ask? Nope. Baloo finally returned about 15 minutes AFTER we had finished our meal to take our plates. There is nothing worse than having a plate in front of you, sitting there, fermenting like the bad wine list. Baloo did not offer dessert, which was a bit disappointing considering it was a birthday celebration. We asked for our check. The Bad Suit is still greeting other tables....apparently birthdays make you invisible. Fifteen minutes later, our check finally arrived. I am beyond irritated at this point. Our jolly waiter's tip is steadily dissipating. My friend never got second beer, and Baloo missed out on a $7 check increase. The credit card, in very plain view, was sitting on the end of our table for at least another 10-15 minutes. Let me reiterate, the place was not even close to busy, or full. Baloo must have used morse code to transmit the credit card, because, this, again, took about 15 minutes. My opinion of Aixios is ruined and Baloo will barely be able to afford a bunch of bananas with my paltry tip. Needless to say, the food was less than fair, overpriced and the service, was, well, you know now!
