Re: “Kansas City Blues and Jazz Juke House

This place was not that great. I was really excited to go after hearing about the great lunch specials on 107.3. First off, when my daughter and I first arrived we were unsure if we were suppose to seat ourselves because no one assisted us. When we did sit down to place an order, the waitress took our order. It took about 45 min for us to get our food, and let me not forget to mention we were the only one's there. After getting our food, the waitress never came back to check on us. My daughter had to get up to ask for napkins, she later had to get up to ask for a refill, and I even had to get up to ask for a check. Very nice establishment, horrible horrible service.....

Re: “Sunset Grill

I had the pleasure of eating breakfast last Sunday at the Sunset. I don't go out for breakfast very much so it was an exceptionally great experience. The waitress was so pleasant and not matter how many changes we made to the order she kept her smile and made sure it was right. The food was yummy, the atmosphere great and one of the owners, Rod, made sure I connected with some very good friends that were also dining there. Thanks for a great experience, Terri

Re: “Location-less Comments

I have eaten at the Corner since I was a kid. It's always been a Westport staple. Back in the 90's there was always a line out the door. In the past couple years I have ventured in a handful of times. I must say the eggs mulligan have always been my thing. I went in today for a breakfast bite. I ordered my usual mulligan and my boyfriend ordered the southwestern eggs. I ordered my eggs extra hard, even told the chef to, "violate," my egg. I was curious when our meal arrived three minutes later. Talk about wrong, my egg was raw and the muffin not even toasted... the southwest was more like a runny mess. I was so sad by the gloom of the place to begin with but the food was the real shame. I never refuse to pay for service, but this was the only thing to do. The staff did what they could, but seriously... hire a constant chef who cooks the same egg, the same way, every time. How hard is it to cook an egg, seriously! I have to assume that the Corner is a corner of the past. Westport... put in a real, hometown, KC breakfast joint. Make the corner of Westport the breakfast it once was!

Re: “Joe's Crab Shack

We waited for an hour and half after being told 45 minutes. We spoke the Manger who never apologized, never visited the table, and couldn’t handle complaints. The staff of children running the restaurant mocked us since we had to see the manager to get a table. You pay 28 bucks for King Crab but you will notice you’re bucket is practically empty. We had company in from out of town and they used to go to Joe’s in Iowa and loved it. So we were excited to eat at Joe’s. We left the house as 5:45 got to the restaurant at 6:00 finally sat to eat at 7:45 got our drinks at 7:48 our appetizer was thrown down but some kid who im pretty sure was on drugs; at 8:10 (yeah it took a long time for them to make that appetizer apparently). Our food finally came about 8:30. Each plate by some other child in a uniform, not one utensil, not one. Our waitress never brought out the food so we had to find one of the kids dancing around the restaurant. I didn’t see any adults working here. I will spare you the rest but it was the worst experience I have ever had a restaurant. Avoid this restaurant like the plague. Our friends said they don’t remember it being like this and that the food has gone completely down hill. They said they must be trying to cheapen their expenses by cutting down on portions and quality. After having this experience more and more people I talk to say that this same thing. They all say the food proportions and quality has completely gone down hill. You wouldn’t walk into a dark alley full of menacing looking guys with guns, so don’t go into Joe’s Crab Shack either!!!

Re: “Location-less Comments

I have been to my fair share of bars. But I have never experienced anything like this. The service was slow it took 20 minutes for our first round of drinks to be served for a party of four. And they were not to sure of how to make their infused drinks. You'd tell them what you wanted and they asked four times how to make it, when it was on their drink order!! Warning: the lemon drop infusion tasted like lemon pledge!!Then the second round took 16 minutes to get to us. So needless to say we we're ready for our check. Which took longer to get to us than the drinks. So we go to pay with cash and our dry witted waiter tells us they don't have change, but willing to take our money. My experience there was very unpleasant.

Re: “Location-less Comments

Service is terrible. They do not honor the Major Savings Card we purchased from my son's elementary school. We have no problem to use multiple Major Savings Cards in other restaurants listed in the card. The food quality is ok, but they are overpriced. I will never go back to this restaurant again.

Re: “Location-less Comments

I took my wife out to Harper's for Valentine's Day last night, and it was by far the worst service I have ever received at a restaurant in my entire life. We sat at our table for 30 minutes before any employee even acknowledged us. At that time, an employee asked if we had been helped. We said no, and she said "Okay, well let me take your drink orders and find you a waitress." She took our drink orders. Fifteen minutes later, a waitress finally came to our table. However, drinks still had not come. (All we ordered was 3 waters and 1 Sprite for our party of four). At this point, my friend went to the bathroom and filled his glass with water from the restroom sink, because it was becoming painfully obvious that it would be too difficult for an employee to bring him a glass of water. After we had been seated for 45 minutes, our "waitress" finally took our order. Amazingly, our food took only 10 minutes from the time we ordered it. However, when we received it, we still had no silverware, no napkins, and no drinks! Five minutes later, exactly one hour after we arrived at our table, we finally received 3 glasses of water. However, my wife, who ordered the complex drink known as Sprite, received some tasteless soda water instead. Realizing that our waitress was too incompetent to process this order, we finally flagged down another employee to get a glass of Sprite for her. The food itself was fine, but for a $15 meal you would think you could get somebody to bring you a water and/or a fork within one hour of your arrival to accompany your food. When we finished eating, our server took my credit card. God only knows where she took it, but half an hour passed before I got it back. All in all, our actual eating experience took about 15 minutes, but we were at the restaurant for two hours. This caused us to be late for the jazz concert across the street at the Blue Room. By the time we arrived there, the show was standing room only, and my pregnant wife had to stand in the back of the crowded club, rather than have the luxury of actually sitting down. We figured that an hour and a half should be enough time to eat and get to the show on time, but obviously we were mistaken. I don't know what was going on with the Harper's staff last night, but it was the most incompetent group of employees I have ever seen at any establishment, whether restaurant or otherwise. I could have found people outside on the street and asked them to come inside, and they would have served us a hundred times better than the people who are actually getting paid to do so. I have had bad service before, but never anywhere near this atrocious. It was the first time in my life that I did not tip my server, and I didn't feel a bit guilty.

Re: “Location-less Comments

I just have to completely disagree with any good comments on this place. We had the tuna rolls, eggplant and filet mignon and I can't imagine EVER EATING THAT FOOD AGAIN. The service was less than horrible and the food was even worse. The only "good"....and by "good" I mean edible thing we had to eat, was the rice - which isn't saying much for the "contemporary chinese" cuisine that we just paid over $60.00 for. All in all, there are hundreds of other chinese places in the KC area that by far exceed this restaurant's best days by one million percent. Save your money, the drive and your stomach from this monstrasity of a fine dining experience.

Re: “New Café Tandoor (CLOSED)

Good food is like music. A number of ingredients (like music instruments) come together to create music on your tastebuds. Sadly, sometimes, it turns into noise. Such is the food at this establishment. I tried the buffet but could not eat anything. The goat an dbeef entrees needed a tad more marinating. The others just did not come together. The only saving grace was the hostess who seemed to go out of her way to help.

Re: “The Corner Café

Has gone down hill since that last time our family ate here. I have eaten here in the past for dinner which was perfectly acceptable. We (2 adults, 2 kids) tried breakfast today and I left knowing that I would most likely never come back. The restaurant was busy on Sunday for lunch and after having been in business for several years I would expect that they would be better prepared for a busy Sunday. After a short wait we were seated to our table. The first strike for me was that their famous biscuits in gravy are not available after 11:00 a.m. even though breakfast is advertised as being served all day. We placed our order after a few minutes. Over 40 minutes later we finally received our order. My order was half incorrect, one my son's order was half complete, and all of the food was between lukewarm to cool. After some reminders to the waitress she finally completed my son's order. Receiving the food almost cold and after taking such a long time is unacceptable to me as there are other restaurants for me to go to that perform better.

Re: “Location-less Comments

This is the worst BBQ in Kansas City. Dry, tasteless BBQ served slowly with a surly attitude. Frankly, Beauchamps' is what I imagine food in prison would be like. It wasn't a bad night...after having identical experiences on two occasions, sadly I have to conclude that this is just a bad restaurant. For example, my steak was seriously miss-cooked, and when I mentioned this to the manager, he refused to recook it or make it right. We ended up waiting over forty-five minutes to be served a basic order of ribs and sliced meats. Don't waste your time, or more importantly, your money.

Re: “Bambino's Italian Cafe

Our food was inedibly salty, and I had a puddle of oil in the bottom of my pasta bowl. When we sent it back, the owner came out and started yelling and arguing with us. After he harassed us, he charged us for all three inedible dishes! What a rip-off - this place is terrible. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!

Re: “Bynum Winery

The owner of this winery is a very bitter and foul old man. We arrived at his place of business 30 minutes prior to opening. I let my dog out on her leash to stretch her legs because we'd been driving awhile. He drove up in his truck and told us to get off his property. I explained we were there to do business and he said he didn't want our business and again told us to get off his property. The winery itself is in a rundown old gas station and what part of the vinyard I could see was very ill-tended having been overrun with weeds.
