Re: “Quasimodo - CLOSED

Bartender who said she is the GM was terrible and RUDE, she has NO idea about booking bands, she must have lied her ass off to get the job. They should check her past employment

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.

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).

NEVER EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT!!!

Re: “Sung Son

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: “Tailgaters Bar & Grill

Waitress /bartender completely ignores everyone,, unless she's showing baby pictures to a select group of people,, she brought me the wrong drink after finally getting her attention,, and she tried to say I said I wanted the other drink,, I am one of those people who slowly says DIET coke, she never checked back with us, and the cook had to bring us our food after I heard him ding the bell three times,,, she just kept talking, she wasn't working at all,, then,,, at 3:30 am I woke with food poisoning,, no question... I could barely make it to the toilet, and was leaning into it,, I had no strength,, I would stay clear of this place,,, I have no idea what was wrong with the tacos I ate, or the cheese nacho dip,, but this place will never get me go back,, don't trust them with the food you put into your mouth,,, I was nothing but positive, and tried to make every excuse for all this until I started getting sick,, HORRIBLE!

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 again......no 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.

Re: “The BrewTop Pub and Patio

Great Place to totally avoid. Super slow service ( 1 1/2 hrs from being seated to actual food arriving) Inexperienced waitress who lacked focus or direction and an indifferent manager. Food was medicore and not even close to warm and appealing.
Wrong combination AVOID

Re: “Orlando's Crazy Horse

The DJ was terrible and didn't play toward his crowd at all. There were only maybe 40 people there at any one point of time and no one would dance because of the horrid song selection.

Re: “Ponak's

Please tell me why their Sonora taco is $4.75 with SHREDDED beef (ONE taco, no sides) and why their Sonora taco is $6.25 with GROUND beef. Look, guys at Ponak's, beef is beef, ground or shredded. I've been charged $2.50 extra when asking to substitute ground for shredded (mistake I'm told - should have been $1.25), then $1.50 extra -- just to substitute ground beef instead of shredded! Why don't you just drop this extra charge??????? This is WAY too much for ONE taco -- NO SIDES!!! Their food is still fairly good, not always hot, but they need to re-think this. I won't go back. No taco is worth near $7.00. Oh, did I mention NO SIDES????!!!! There is a Mexican restaurant on every corner in Kansas City. I don't need to go to this one.

Re: “Blue Moose

Place to drink and watch the " Glory days " former East/ Jayhawk wanna - be' binge. Food unpredictable, surly wait staff more concerned with clearing out the tab and getting on. Could ah, would ah - with the right staff. Dark, silly but a place to go when desperate for an overpriced beer.

Re: “The Union

I have a bruised arm, scraped knee, dislocated shoulder, one friend was choked and another was pushed on the sidewalk. All of this because a friend of mine couldn't physically fit into a single file line. After my friend was called a fat guy by the bouncer downstairs he decided to leave but by then it was too late and the enraged bouncer grabbed him and threw him against the wall while the bouncer lead started to choke him. When I tried to ask the enraged bouncer his name I was lifted off the ground by the same two bouncers and physically thrown out of the door. Police were called by us but refused to fill out a formal report and were completely unhelpful, at one point even going as far as defending the bouncers and calling me a smartass.

Re: “McCormick & Schmick's

Below-Average, boring corporate food. Its servers act like they have memorized scripts, I overheard the manager talking about her fake boobs, and the bartender took almost ten minutes to get me a drink when nearly nobody else was there (she was talking to a waitress). Not coming back.
