Re: “The Cashew

Owners are worthless pieces of shit who screw every employee that has ever worked there. Management also fucks every new girl that works there. Yes, every SINGLE manager. I hope some of your wives read this. The owner Shane is a raging tool who runs one of the shadiest bars ever. Hey, at least he gets laid regularly. Also, some girls claim that he has given them herpes. Think about working here ladies. Also, notice on craigslist that they are ALWAYS hiring. That should not be a good sign. Turnover is the sign that maybe it's not the employees ALL the time? It is the management to claim at this dump. Also, Shane's dad Mort is a total thief as well. Fuck you cashew.

Re: “The Cashew

Unfortuantly we has a similar experieince days before! To those interested in having an event or a wedding reception at 2000 Grand (The Cashew) please think twice! My Husband and I loved the Cashew. We loved the space, the view, the food was awesome, and they were flexible dealing with us all the way up to the wedding. It seemed to be the perfect spot to have an all inclusive downtown reception with an urban feel that had competing prices to other similar spaces. The problems we had occurred more after the wedding and with management. During the event it was HOT! They say the air conditioner was working which if this was true it was completely inadequate. With all the people in the space and all the windows it was burning up! All my guest on one side of the room were sweating and several of our older family members ended up having to leave early due to the heat. They did try to correct the situation by putting out large industrial fans that helped the heat but completely took away from the décor I had been working on for months prior. The second issue we dealt with was the freight elevator, which was the only access to the space except for three flights of stairs. At some point during the night the freight elevator broke which we were assured would work to help w people with disabilities which included my father, who paid for the event! Instead of trying to compensate for the elevator being broken they chose to ignore it and we were to figure out an exit strategy on our own. Not only were family members that needed assistance not able to leave the reception safely all the decorations we had brought for the reception also had to be carried down the stairs. They didn’t help with this until they were inconvenienced because people were going through the bar area with supplies. Management failed to provide alternative plans or help with either situation. These things could have been smoothed over easily because in the end we had a good time, but once mentioned to management a week after we were met with defense. The event coordinator was very apologetic and recognized the wrongs that occurred, but according to her, the owner and manager saw it very differently! Instead of offering some kind of concessions they put it all back on us and made some extreme and untrue accusations! This place is by no means cheap and we expected it to be perfect and when it wasn’t there was no real apology made. Only after meeting with them and much deliberation did they begrudgingly offer a gift card to the place. At this point it was too late; if they had offered this immediately we would have felt differently. The tactics they used to defend not offering any compensation were completely unprofessional and insulting. Please be aware of their poor customer service and lack of attention to customer satisfaction (more so with the owner and management) before booking this space!

Re: “Cozy's Cafe

Went there for breakfast with my wife. Our order was timely and not bad but i ordered coffee to drink when my breakfast was served i had less than half a cup was not asked if i wanted more finnaly when my check was brought I was asked if I needed anything else I replied yes I would like another cup of coffee As the lady sitting next to our table had been trying to get someones attention also that she needed a refill I was told by kozy that all i have to do is ask in a very rude manner. Since i was about to leave anyway i just said well you guys were to busy to get anyones attention. The kafe was not packed just seemed they had no time to check on customers before they brought the check. Honestly my wife replied to me she thought kozy was very rude and she did not want to return. as my feelings are the same way. I usually dont post many reviews but this one I felt needed to be shared.

Re: “Kokopelli Mexican Cantina

My wife and I recently visited kokopelli's. We live in the Northland, but one of my wife's doctors office is nearby, so we took the ocassion to stop in, in part because of good reviews my wife had heard on a local PBS program. I would not return if I lived across the street. The above "Restaurant Details" mentions reasonably/modestly priced menu items. A burrito priced north of $9.00 is not modest, and reasonable only if it is good. The menu stated that the burrito was one of their most popular items...sad if true. The portion size was about what you would find at any "Mexican" eatery, but the quality was just plain poor. The beef and pork in the filling was tasteless, the refried beans in the filling was no better than what anyone could dump out of a can, and the "queso" on top, please. If I'm paying, as stated before, north of $9:00 for a burrito, with the certain expectation of a gratuity to boot, then don't serve me something that with 10 minutes, a stove top, chunk of Velveeta, and a can of Rotel, I can make myself! I have made a concerted effort over the years, as many of us have, to eat healthier. But.....recently while out running numerous errands I drove by a Bueno Taco location. I can't explain it, guilty pleasure? Temporary insanity? I went in and got, you see this coming don't you, a burrito. It wasn't quite as big as Kokopelli's, but it was just as good, for one third the price.

Re: “Saigon 39

HOMOPHOBE WARNING! The owner of this restaurant is a raging homophobe. I wouldn't have known, except when he dumped a cigarette (half-smoked, still lit) on the sidewalk in front of me as I was walking by, I told him not to litter my neighborhood and to pick up his trash. He became belligerent, and told me to go home and get a man to control me. I told him I was quite happy with my wife. At that point, he blew a fuse. I was succinctly called a "tomboy," told that I was "sick," that I "needed a man," and was informed to "go away or [he'd] call the police." Not even kidding. Right there in front of everyone. BOYCOTT THIS RESTAURANT. We don't need homophobic, hateful bigots like this on 39th Street. We don't need litterbugs either. Oh, the food is mediocre, for what it's worth. You're far better off going a couple of blocks west along 39th street to Vietnam Cafe.

Re: “Nara

My 2 sisters and I just went there for one of our birthdays. We did't have a reservation but there were many empty tables. The hostess asked us if we could be done in an hour or if we wanted to wait for a table. We said we would try to be done. The waiter was instructed to stay close by our table and make sure he took our order timely. after just 45 minutes, the waiter brought over the check and and the host came with him to tell us our time was up. We asked if we could be moved to one of the many empty tables. we were told they were all reserved. They were very rude and nasty and made sure to embarrass us and make us leave our table even though there were many empty tables when we left. The explanation was that they were all reserved. Until tonight that was one of my favorite places. I will never eat there again because of how badly we were treated. When we tried to complain to the girl at the register, she put her hand in our faces and said "good night ladies"..... I am very sad and disappointed.

Re: “Harvey House Diner - CLOSED

We made the mistake of giving Harvey House a 2nd chance in Dec 2009. We also went last year it took them 45 minutes to bring four poached eggs (after they first delivered 3 fried eggs and then 4 hard-boiled eggs). This time, it took them an hour to bring our food -- and it wasn't even busy. They told us they were no longer serving eggs, even though the sign in the lobby said they now served breakfast all of the time. The hamburger wasn't right, the taco salad was bland, and ALL of the lettuce in the side salad was completely wilted. They're friendly, and it's a neat atmosphere, but don't go if you want to order food.

Re: “Domo Sushi & Grill

I went to Domo recently to eat, because of all of the great reviews. Unfortunately for me, I had horrible service. My waitress (if you can call her that) took my drink order, but then never returned for 30 minutes with my drink, or to take my sushi order. I gave her another 10 minutes, with still nothing. I got up and left and thanked her for her unusual service. I will never be back!

Re: “Lidia's

After reading the reviews and listening to others talk about the restaurant, we brought out of town friends here on a Sat evening. BIG mistake because the restaurant was packed and very loud. Out of 4 entree's, one had to be sent back, one was cold and should not have been, and the other two were rated "fair" but not worth the price. I could not recommend to others and would not go back. The server did her best but could not overcome te poor quality of the kitchen.

Re: “Julian

This restaurant can simply be described as not great. In a tiny seating area the open kitchen neighbors your food and the atmosphere is very loud, disruptive, and definitely annoying. The menu is a tiny strip of paper with few options in each category. Only about 9 options in the main courses, and each costs at least $10. "Ten dollars", you say, thats not so bad. Well thats what I thought until I sampled the food. Small, one portion meals with no sides (unless you want to pay seven dollars for a scoop of something) hardly satisfy. RIDICULOUSLY overpriced average food. A small bowl of macaroni was what my daughter ordered, and i kept looking up to see her face contort into yucky faces. She said she later preferred the kraft maccaroni. And what was up woth those starters; Soft pretzels with mustard? For 7 dollars? I ordered the paella and it wasn't the best. Filling food, if even that. And what do I discover, A bill of 81 dollars. Ridiculous. 14 dollars for a bowl of macaroni. 7 for a lump of overdressed salad with no topping but cheese. No sides. No satisfaction. No happy. This place is overpriced, overrated, fancy faux gourmet food with bad results. Tummy ache anyone?

Re: “Jay Wale's Bakery-Bistro

After being assured that the perfectly beautiful sugar cookies were made in-house, I tried to eat the most beautiful, worst cookie that I have ever eaten. THE COOKIES ARE NOT MADE IN-HOUSE AND ARE HORRID. I WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN...IF THEY LIE ABOUT THE COOKIES...JUST HAVE TO WONDER ABOUT THE REST OF THEIR FOOD.

Re: “The Classic Cup Cafe on the Plaza

I recently went to breakfast at the Classic Cup in Kansas City with the staff from my office. I have dairy allergies and ordered a cheeseless veggie omelet and received an omelet with cheese. When pointing this out to the young waiter, he did not look at my omelet but firmly confirmed there was NO cheese on my omelet. Thought maybe I should talk to the manager. She came to the table, did not introduce herself, did not ask what the problem was, but immediately started the conversation with "My chef has been here for years and I believe my chef, if he says there is no cheese on your omelet then there is no cheese". She, too, did not bother to look at my plate. I was astounded! What blatent bad customer service from a MANAGER of a respected local restaurant! So sad, when I can go anywhere in this city, ask for an omelet without cheese and if it comes, have it taken care of professionally. HORRIBLE SERVICE!

Re: “The Peanut

By far our worst Kansas City restaurant experience. Period. I ordered the Tuna salad sandwich on "toasted wheat." Simply put, the sandwich was soggy when it arrived, and they just slapped on cold shredded cheese. I would have been fine to just say "I didn't care for their version of the tuna salad," until the waitress first took offense that I said I didn't care for it. Then she brought the check, and demanded that I still pay for the sandwich, which I did not eat. I was dumbfounded, as this was the first restaurant EVER that I've been too that was requiring me to pay for an item we neither enjoyed nor ate. I would have ordered something in place, but was not given a chance. Unfortunately, this was a terribly bad experience for my wife and I to have on her lunch break.

Re: “Sushi Gin

Food is acceptable, but service is terrible. Our waiter brought a noodle dish, but I ordered shrimp tempura. When I explained very nicely that this not want I ordered, he went to speak with the manager/owner. She refused to give me the meal I ordered, saying insulting comments like, "You have no proof that you ordered tempura." Such stupid drama. We ultimately left without me eating, and when I mentioned this to friends, they've had terrible customer service there as well. I won't go back. I asked around, and lots of people prefer Jun's on State Line near 75th, where "the food is good, and the owners are happy to provide good customer service!"

Re: “Los Cabos

My husband and I had a horrible experience! We sat at the bar and the bartender kept dissapearing. When we finally were able to order I ordered alacart a beef enchilada and a beef taco. My husband order a pork burrito. My enchilada came out with no enchilada sauce at all and was deep fried with a drizzle of sour cream. It was about the size of a small cigar! I told the bartender that was not an enchilada and he said they make them a little different at their restaurant. We found the Director of Operations and complained to him and he said that was definitely not an enchilada. My husbands food was fine but we will never go back! What, did I look stupid!!!
