Re: “Panzon's

This place was absolutely terrible. When we arrived, there were several people waiting to be seated, yet there were no employees up front to help them. After about 10 minutes, some one showed up and started taking people to tables. After we were seated it took an additional 10 minutes for a server to come take our order. 15 minutes later she came back to tell us that she had lost our orders, so we had to order a second time. When our food finally arrived, it looked disgusting, and tasted bland. I will never be returning to this restaurant, and I suggest anyone thinking about going to stay well clear.

Re: “Peanches Food & Wine

Is this place still open? I thought the owner/chef/marketingdirector/mrknowitall ran off the last 3 customers that would even go there. I gave it a star because I think the name is so catchy

Re: “Kate's Kitchen

This restaurant asked a very loyal customer to not return due to his Alzheimer wife having a mishap in the bathroom. The owner claims to be a Christian man but I don't know too many Christians who do not have sympathy or respect for anyone with this debilitating disease. I can only hope he or his wife never suffer the embarrassing disgrace that he put this lovely couple through. STAY AWAY from this restaurant. They do not care for their patronages.

Re: “Margarita's

This place does not want to serve African-Americans. Please do not support Margaritas. Me and my family was told we would not be served and could not come back simply because we wanted an exchange and was not happy with the food or service and another group of African-Americans that sat next to us was treated the same way.

Re: “Pork 'N' Pit BBQ

The Mac & cheese was OK. Maybe some people like fall off the bone mush, but I do not. Worst ribs I have ever had, and I am no novice. Thought I would try it, but it was the biggest waste of $32.00 that I have have EVER made. I am now drinking Alka Seltzers to calm my stomach!!!!

Re: “McCormick & Schmick's

Our family had dinner in McCormick & Schmick (Kansas City) and did not have a good time. Besides being placed at the wrong table (we reserved a window table), our food order being short changed (we ordered a side of mashed potatoes and did not receive them) and our meal was cooked incorrectly (salmon was requested medium rare and came out medium well done), we received no bread (whereas the tables around us all received bread) and being billed for horderves that we did not order (the horderves that the table next to us ordered and ate).
The above dinner made us all sickly between 30 and 90 minutes after we left the restaurant. Emailing the restaurant the next day resulted in a no response. It was not until I contacted corporate that they called and apologized.
The bottom line is their food, service, and customer service is miserable. I will never step foot in another McCormick again.

Re: “Hamburger Mary's

Request to all:

Please do not patronize Hamburger Mary's.

A few months back we were at a Hamburger Mary's BearBust having a great time. Normally we just pay in cash throughout the night, but since we hadn't gone to the ATM, the bartenders on the upper patio suggested we open a tab. We did. At the end of the evening, I asked the bartender what our tab was and he said it was $89. When checking our bank account, we noticed that our bill, which was $89 on the receipt I signed plus tip was showing on the account twice (one at $89 and the other at $99)

We waited a day or so to see if the second charge would be removed and it wasn't. We therefore disputed the charge with the bank. It was resolved with the smaller of the two charges being refunded to our account.

Today, we were at Hamburger Mary's. Had lunch and was enjoying beers and time with friends on the patio and were approached by the two bartenders from the upper patio who suggested we open a tab. We were told that we were no longer welcomed there due to a "conflict of interest". They said this was at the direction of the manager. After repeated requests, we were never able to talk to the manager directly. In fact, it was almost as if they were trying to avoid having to get the manager.

So, I would urge everyone to check your account statement when using your credit or ATM cards at Hamburger Mary's. Particularly upstairs. I originally just chalked this up to some sort of mistake. They happen. But after being approached and "tossed out" by the two bartenders who also were involved with the disputed charge, I fear there may be something more sinister happening. I hope I am wrong, but the situation is really odd to me.

I hope we all may find some other place to enjoy time with friends.

Thank you for your support.

Re: “Tower Tavern

I am writing this review based on a very recent experience at Tower Tavern. This review is relevant to how poorly the staff treats their customers especially when they are favoring bar patrons who are friends of the staff and owner. This establishment supports domestic violence. Especially, one of the owners who is a corrupt, chauvinistic drunk who will publicly humiliate you with unscrupulous lies in order to protect his drunken investments who regularly feeds his insatiable alcoholic cravings. He has no regard for human decency or women. The owner that I speak of is the geeky drunk with the glasses, Grant, that stands on the side of the bar getting loaded with other bar patrons. If you don't mind this type of behavior, then kudos to you. However, if you have any decency and respect for women, then I suggest that you stay out of this place. Domestic violence should not be tolerated. As a business, Tower Tavern should do what is best to make sure that people are not being abused by their partners. It is not acceptable to humiliate anyone any more than what their abuser has already done, even if you are friends of the abuser.

Re: “Capital Grille

Overpriced, inconsistent quality. This was our favorite place for many years but not anymore. "Attire, business casual" is a joke. Bermudas and "T" shirts are common and the noise level is so loud, we could carry on a conversation only by almost shouting. Won't go back.

Re: “Bloom Baking Company

TLDR version: Be cautious using debit or credit cards here. I recommend paying only with cash, especially if your transaction is under the minimum $10. Ask for a receipt and check it before you leave.

I was very disappointed with my experience at Bloom yesterday. They were quite busy, which is normal for a Saturday morning. I realized as I was in line that I didn't have any cash with me. I asked the gentleman behind the counter whether they take debit cards, and he responded affirmatively but did not mention that there is a $10 minimum card charge. I didn't discover this until I got to the register, prepared food in hand, and my total was only $8.36.

I quickly asked the woman working the register what else I could easily add to the transaction to get over the minimum amount. She told me not to worry about it and she ran my card. I really appreciated this and thought it was very nice of this small local company to give a customer a break in a pinch. I wasn't offered a receipt, but I figured it wasn't important and I didn't want to delay the long line any further, so I collected my purchases and left. I actually walked away thinking happily that this was a great example of the terrific service that small businesses are able to offer their customers.

Not so fast!

Today I logged in to balance my bank activity and realized that rather than giving me a break on being short of the minimum transaction amount, the employee at the register had simply added $2 to my total and charged me $10.36 for my items, without asking me if this was OK, or allowing me to quickly select something like a baguette to tip me over the minimum. It's only two dollars, I realize, which is far from a large amount, but in principle it's incredibly offensive to have been treated this way.

Eight dollars is pretty hefty for a croissant and small coffee to begin with. The two dollar involuntary tip makes the price more or less unconscionable.

I would like to give this business the benefit of a doubt and assume that their employees have not been specifically trained to do this, but regardless, I will certainly never return to Bloom on the basis of this experience. Their food, although dramatically overpriced, is excellent. But unless you're paying with cash I would be very wary of them.

Re: “Blanc Burgers & Bottles

Expensive, tasteless meat in the burger. Very poor service. Server neglected many times to stop and ask if we needed anything from condiments to drinks. Had to hail him down like you would a cabbie in New York. My money is better spent elsewhere. Not planning on returning. Work too hard for my money..

Re: “Tomfooleries

To Tomfooleries Restaurant & Bar, I WILL NEVER SPEND ANOTHER DIME AT YOUR ESTABLISHMENT & WILL DISCOURAGE EVERYONE ELSE I KNOW FROM DOING SO AS WELL!!! I have never received such terrible customer service from a restaurant before, especially when the food & drinks are subpar at best!!! Your management staff needs to have extensive training on how to speak with & treat customers, they turned an evening of good times and celebration into a very negative experience. Unless you retrain your night time management staff or replace them I think it will negatively impact your companies bottom line in the future!!!!

Re: “Thirsty Ernie's -- CLOSED

Tell me WHY we have the immature tall blonde, Lindsey chasing and screaming at her boyfriend throughout entire bar and out on patio?. Last 2 times Ive been there she is overly spoken on she doesnt know where the "f" he is. Yelling across the bar at the girls on her demands and letting them fully aware SHE IS IN CHARGE TONIGHT. Is she in charge? If thats the case, WOW! You guys need a little help in hiring. Her professionalism needs a crash course. So much back and forth between her and i think his name is Chuck. Its like cat and mouse chase with them two.

I was there last Thursday when I heard the short dark headed bar tender with glasses there let a group of maybe 8 people tell a guy at the door she wasnt able to serve because they were closing....understandably it was bad out and we were leaving. However, she told a handful of girls across the bar know they are not drinking enough to keep the bar open and paying her salary. I was sitting at the bar and overheard and saw this.. The girls were angry and came back in. Dont know what all was said but overheard some when they came back out. Felt bad for the 2 that were working with the bar tender girl as they seemed to wanna correct the concerns. Felt like the bar tender could of handled things better but didn't.

Re: “Cozy's Cafe

Reheated leftovers with a side of credit card fraud

In the late afternoon, their entire menu (what little of it they actually have on offer) is apparently leftovers from the lunch rush reheated out of the fridge. And if you decide that you don't find this prospect particularly appealing, you see on your bank statement that you were charged over $40 for a couple soft drinks ordered before you discovered the "quality" of the food and decided to pay up and leave. Stay away. Stay far, far away.

Re: “Saigon 39

If you are being treated like a second-class citizen, feel uncomfortable during the meal you paid for, and find yourself dealing with unpleasant management, then you must have found yourself in Saigon 39. The owner seems to have a giant problem with humankind in general, and it makes for a very inhospitable atmosphere. Wish I could say the food somehow made up for all that, but no. Vietnam Cafe is equally as good, if not better- and hey- they don't treat you like scum! Guess I know where my next Vietnam-fix will be.

Re: “Choga Korean Restaurant

Worse customer service ever. Went there to eat and had terrible customer service. Only brought out 2 glasses of water for 4 of us. Never ask us if we wanted additional glasses for our 2 kids. They ended up drinking out of ours. After bringing us our food she never ask us if we wanted anything else. She brought us our check in the middle of us eating. She started clearing our table when we weren't finish eating. Feel like she wanted us out. We left her 15%(even though the service is bad) tip base on the before tax amount. My wife took one of the kids to the restroom, the waitress came to me and said "you should tip at least 15%. You so cheap." I should ask for the ticket back and wrote zero, but I was shock that she would said something "BS" like this even though she received 15%. I told my wife what happen in the car. My wife called to complain to the manager but she answer the phone and said she was the manager. My wife asked for her name and she said "Jenny". She is a middle aged lady who speak very heavy accent. Beware of her if you go there.

Re: “The Cashew

My Fiance and I were very excited to have our wedding reception here next March. Beautiful space, great view, excellent food and a 5-star wedding coordinator. We signed a contract with 2000 Grand on November 3, 2012, however the contract was signed not by our event coordinator, but by the owner. We knew nothing of this because we never saw the contract after the owner signed it...You could say we didn't mind because we were still in a pre-wedding bliss, full of fun planning for the best day of our lives. Needless to say, the bliss has worn off.

On November 12, 2012, we went in for a tasting to select the entree for the reception. Our great event coordinator, who we really liked and trusted, told us then and there that she was leaving and introduced us to her replacement. We were okay with it at the start, but after 5 days of no returned emails we knew this was a fail. We didn't trust the new coordinator to get the job done so we tried to pull out of the contract on November 21, 2012 by citing a clause that said something to the effect of "no changes are binding except in writing". But, to our dismay, the contract wasn't even signed by our coordinator, it was signed by the owner (someone the internet tells us is quite the bully). Remember the wedding bliss? Yeah we had no idea.

Another interesting point here is that, we asked them to take us off their calendar earlier this week so they can begin to re-lease the space, and sustain no damages by our situation. They refused and claimed they won't take us off until we pay our contract cancellation fee, which I will explain in the next paragraph. This is just silly business practice that can be simplified into plain-old bullying. They know that we are gone. They also know they won't make money if they don't re-lease the space. But they insist on hurting their own business to collect a measly $2,000 from a young engaged couple, us, who want out because they acted quite unprofessionally.

Long story short, lots of emails, a few interesting phone calls and some heartburn later, 2000 Grand delivered an ultimatum. Either we pay the 25% of the contract amount (which was a clause in the contract that we understand, but we claim the whole agreement is voided by their unprofessional actions) or they hand us over to the collection rats.

I would strongly advise any prospective event-hosting people out there that even though the space is good, the food is good and the folks seem nice, the current management here can be accurately described as crooks. I hope this post encourages you to make a wise decision of where you take your business.

Re: “Trouser Mouse

The bands are great but the bar is extremely smokey with poor ventilation. Make it non smoking and would go there often.
