Re: “The Dish - Famous Stuffed Pizza (CLOSED)

Re: “Blue Grotto

Ate there last night (first time; Godfather table, with friends). I was not impressed with taste, esp. at the price.

Service was excellent except for server's representation of pizza size (she made it seem much smaller, and I didn't want all that food). I got the Four Seasons and found it to be soggy in the middle (outer crust was great) and bland. My friends liked their selections well enough.

My husband loved the asparagus appetizer.

He got the pork chop, and it was well plated and had nice apple puree/garlic garnish, but it was not uniformly tender (and also, alone, was bland).

My Caesar salad was o.k. I have had anchovies before, and the way they ended up tasting as part of Blue Grotto's vinegarette dressing was not tasty to me / tasted very differently.

Saw people I know, though, from around town, so it's a popular place. It was packed, and everyone else was happy. I have leftovers in the fridge, but I'm afraid of them : )

Went to Foo's for dessert (not me, them!), so can't comment on the sweets.

Re: “Nara

Worst restaurant I've ever eaten at!!! Service was terrible, sangria didn't have any alcohol, food was bland and over priced. To top it off the restaurant had my car towed from a reserved spot WHILE I WAS EATING INSIDE!!

Management was completely inept at resolving their mistake. I tried to contact owner Casey Adams who has been completely unresponsive. I'm going after them through the BBB (Better Biz Bureau).

Re: “Lidia's

attended Lidia's 14th yr. anniversary on Nov. 4th. Don't know when I've been so disappointed. Usually LOVE Lidia's cusine NOT this time. Had pasta trio, all 3 choices were cold, the ziti was dried out and crispy on the ends as well as 3-4 pieces "glued" together and the hay & straw offering was like glue (thick, pasty). Had the lemoncello tiramisu, normally I LOVE anything lemon, tart but this was down right bitter. Ended up paying a lot of $ for a lot of food I couldn't eat. Had a private party in upstairs dining room, Lidia trying to cram too much into one evening, felt badly for cooks, the kitchen was slammed, totally over extended.

Re: “Sung Son (CLOSED)

Awful...not bad...not REALLY bad.....AWFUL!! My wife and I arrived around 7 pm on a Monday night to find a completely empty restaurant ( we should have followed our instincts and fled ). The only human to be found was the host who looked irritated that we had interrupted his phone conversation. We asked for a booth and he took us to a booth that, on my side, had about a foot square hole in the seat patched with black duct tape (again, we should have followed our instincts and fled ).
After waiting and waiting for the host to get off the phone and take our order ( no waiters on duty) we ordered three appetizers, shrimp and sweet potato with lettuce wrap, crab Rangoon, Vietnamese spring rolls and hot tea…what could go wrong? When we finally got our order the shrimp and sweet potato sticks looked like small, overcooked fish sticks that had been sitting on a counter under a heat lamp. We had to look closely to find the four pieces of shrimp that had the same French fry shape and consistency of the totally tasteless sweet potato fries. Sadly I have just described the best parts of this appetizer. The lettuce used to wrap the shrimp and sweet potato sticks was warm and so limp you could literally wrap it around and around your finger without causing it to crack! The only positive about the lettuce was that there wasn’t much of it. When we were able to flag down the host who was between phone calls, we asked for fresh lettuce and were greeted by a quizzical look followed by “Really?”.
We finally did get fresh lettuce (there actually was some on the premises) but it could not hide the texture, taste or looks of the sweet potato / shrimp sticks. Moving on to the Crab Rangoon, my wife thought it was OK, I thought it looked and tasted like it might have been on the lunch buffet and saved for lucky dinner diners. The spring rolls were average (high praise for this evening) but, at least, the peanut sauce was rich, thick and tasty. The tea was excellent even if we were never asked if we needed more.
We finished quickly and left a goodly amount of food, but, getting out was no easy matter as we had to wait and wait and wait for our check while our” host / wait staff” finished his never ending phone conversation. We usually leave a 20% tip as we appreciate the job most restaurant employees do, even if the food is just average. Tonight, we left zero which was both a well-deserved tip and a generous score for the food, the ambiance and the service we received at Sung Son.

Re: “Fortune Palace Chinese Restaurant

This is an excellent restaurant and also one of the best near Overland Park. Nicer atmosphere than Bo Lings as well as service. Food is just as good or better. Also not as crowded.

Re: “Kababesh Grill

Be careful if you plan to visit this place. Their rates change when you are about to pay the check. I have paid a ridiculously high price of $19.55 for a shitty buffet. The reason given was a long holiday (long holiday on last friday of October?...Really?)...and a special buffet while it was a regular buffet. Please check and confirm their rates before eating there else who knows I paid $19.45 you might have to pay $49.45

Re: “Max’s Burgers & Gyros

Love Max's! The fact that he knows our names and greets us with a smile EVERY single time we walk in says a lot about the place. We haven't lived in KC for the past three years but still make it a point to go in for burgers and fries when we are in town. Just forget about Sonic and McDonald's...not in the same league.

Re: “B.B.'s Lawnside BBQ

I've been eating at BB's since they opened in 1990 and have tried most of the items on the menu. They have never let me down on the quality of their brisket, burnt ends, turkey, or sausage. Their fries and beans are very good as well.

Re: “LC's Bar-B-Q

Best barbeque in Kansas City.

Great sandwiches.....beef, turkey, pork, all piled high, tender, juicy, and smoky with plenty of smoke ring. Great french fries from fresh cut potatoes fried in lard. Wonderful, rich & tangy beans. Burnt ends to die for !!

Re: “Mama Tio's

Great food, cheapest drinks in town and best burgers in town. I know Mexican Restaurant and burgers sounds crazy but for five dollars you get a double quarter pounder and fries. Also they serve great breakfast for ridiculously low prices. Service is friendly but slow.

Re: “Green Room Burgers & Beer

As a vegetarian for fifteen years I can say with confidence their veggie burger is THE BEST veggie burger I've had. I don't usually go for them because you never know when its just a dressed up Boca or black bean and bread crumb patty. Theirs is complex in flavor and texture. Seriously, delicious. The bartender was named Adam and he was precious; great to talk to and very welcoming. I think people should come here in the right mindset--grab a stool, relax, and eat a burger. No frills, just delicious food and at least one great bartender.

Re: “B&B Waffle House

I would have put less than one star for the rating but the system would not allow it. I am a doctor at a local hospital and I work very late hours. In the past I have called Waffle House to phone in an order to pick up on the way home. After the THIRD call with no answer, I tried calling the "hot line" number for the restaurant.......Yet answer. All I got was a recorded message. I am glad these people DO NOT work in my emergency room at the hospital because our patience's/customer are very important to us.
