Re: “Kokopelli Mexican Cantina (CLOSED)

WARNING PARENTS WITH SMALL CHILDREN!!!!!!......Kokopelli's could care less for your business. My husband and I have been regular customer's of Kokopelli. On the above date we arrived early with our 16 mos. old in anticipation of recieving a booth that would accomadate a high chair. We purposely arrived early in hopes of finding a booth available. Upon our arrival,the parking lot was empty and restaurant was not busy. We were met by the RUDE and INEXPERIENCED hostess who we have encountered before on previous visits. On those previous visits, the same hostess informed us that the only booth that could accomadate a high chair was at the front of the restaurant. We have sat at this "booth" many times. On this visit, she rudly told us they could not seat at us at the "empty" booth with a high chair because they were anticipating being "busy". She was obviouly put out by our request as she has been on previous visits. She gave us no alternatives and escorted us to a table in the center of the dining room, all while mumbling under her breath. She did not ask if the seat was exceptable to us, nor did she care. Seating in the center of the dining room could be liked to a hospital waiting room....very undesirable with zero privacy. Shocked at the inexcusable rudeness of the hostess, I asked to speak to a manager. Mary came to our table and explained that booths for high chairs were also available in the back of the restaurant, an option we were not offered. Mary begrudedly offered to let us move but it was too little too late once we got the little one settled at the table. In this economy, going the extra mile to accomadate every customer is important. That did not happen in this case, nor did the hostess or Mary care to make sure we were happy. We eat out offen and understand when a restaurant is full and when tables are occupied, but the restaurant at the time of our arrival was NOT busy and no alternatives were offered to us at the time of seating. We will not tolerate rudeness or an eating establishment not going to extra mile when we eat out. It's not as if we were eating at Plaza lll. Our issue is with the hostess and management's handling of seating arrangments and not the service we recieved from our server, Vicki. We will return to our mexican restaurant of choice, Cactus Grill in Prairie Village. They always manage to accomadate our high chair booth request with a smile on their face. WE are sorry, Cactus Grill, that we strayed.

Re: “Baja 600 (CLOSED)

I gave Baja a 3 because it wasn't bad, but it wasn't memorable. I expect a corporate feel when eating at restaurants on the Plaza, but it just didn't do much for me, like it almost needed more of a niche to make it interesting. The service was good. The food was alright, and the portions were large (the quesadilla appetizer was the largest I've ever seen), and the prices match the size. You'll leave full, but there won't be much to pull you back in again. As for vegetarians, those choices are pretty limited, mostly to the typical cheese enchilada type of items (and a few salads). You would be better at any of the places on the Boulevard, or go a bit further south to Jalapeno's or Casa Del Rey.

Re: “Rudy's Tenampa Taqueria

I think the best thing it has going for it is the location. I don't like their beans or tamales and the chile rellano was pretty bad the day I was last there. It's ok for a quick lunch.

Re: “Jess and Jim's Steakhouse

We went to Jess & Jim's on a whim one night and wasn't totally disappointed, but definitely wasn't impressed either; especially with their reputation. I actually ordered the chicken fried steak, so I can't give my personal opinion on the actual steaks, but the my meal was pretty good. Honestly, one of the best chicken friend steaks I've had in quite a while; the fries, beef soup and garlic bread were also quite good. My fiance got the surf and turf while his brother got just a t-bone. The lobster was apparently very good, but both the steaks were not up to par. We may be a bit snobby when it comes to steak (we'd rather eat them at home, haha) but for the price and the impression that we were coming to this well-known steakhouse, the food just wasn't mindblowing. I'd have no problem going back and trying something else, but my hopes won't be so high this time!

Re: “Sidekicks

I just came back from a weekend of fun in Kansas City and wanted to take my friends to Sidekicks because I use to live there and always have had a good time when visiting this bar. This experience was not the same as my previous visits. I had to listen to the DJ act like a child and argue with a customer about song selection. It was very apparent that the DJ didn't want to play the customers song selection but his own selections were NOT a hit with the crowd, no one was dancing with his selections. I feel that when its late in the evening if a customer is requesting a song, play it. If they are going to dance then great - isn't sidekicks a dance bar? I don't think I will make it a point to visit Sidekicks the next time I am in town and honestly think the owners should reevaluate their DJ and his attitude towards the customers.

Re: “Choga Korean Restaurant

I went to lunch on a Friday, and the place was jammed, but with only two servers who really weren't prepared for such a big crowd. Aside from the service, I was very disappointed with the food, which surprisingly wasn't very authentic. I'm a Korean from Central Asia, so maybe our style is slightly different, but my lunch was mostly bland and not spicy overall. I was really looking forward to the blood sausage (soondae), but it did not meet my expectations. It's not how it was portrayed in the recent Pitch review.

Re: “Local Burger (CLOSED)

The food was ok - nothing really great. Tasted like any other burger even if I did get elk. The beer was warm and I thought the meal was over priced.

The atmosphere and music was great, but I was turned off by the service of the bartenders and doormen. After waiting in line to get a drink for ten minutes, the bartenders continued to ignore not only myself, but other patrons who were holding out money just to get a drink. I even witnessed a bartender yell at a customer b/c she got slightly impatient. The place is a good idea, but don't even mess with the bar. It will leave you frustrated and disappointed...

Re: “Location-less Comments

What is going on around here!! First off wasn't Chuckie T arrested or charged with battery or something back in the summer-fall last year at his own bar. Drinking problem of some kind because I remember thinking of Jared and his drinking problem hooking up with Chuckie T. Chuckie T owned the Peanut on Shawnee Mission Parkway and then suddenly it changed its name to something else (don't remember) and then shortly after Jared Allens Sports Bar was open. Talk about a train wreck. You would think with all the money Jared got he could at least afford to go out in style!! Q104 is a real venue for the following of these two wonder what they have to say about things?

Re: “Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant - CLOSED

The building is gorgeous and so was the presentation of the food. However, the flavor and tastes did not match either of those good qualities. I order fish and chips, while my wife ordered a pasta/chicken special. Needless to say, both were very bland and uneventful other than the before mentioned presentation. Fish and Chips at many other places is better and better value. Overall, quality of food was not commensurate with the prices.

Re: “Kin Lin Chinese Restaurant

I had high hopes for this restaurant when looking for a good Chinese place in the Brookside area....and after reading the Pitch's pitch, I thought it was a sure bet! Sadly, that was not so. The service was terrible, and the food really not that much better. Their hot and sour soup was reasonable though. Outside of that, their appetizers are all very greasy and their menu lacks much in the way of descriptions - you get the name of the dish and not much else. So I'm still in search of a good Chinese food place in the area....

Re: “Accurso's (CLOSED)

Until last night, was one of my weeknight favs. Last night, everything was off. Meatballs were like sawdust, the penne; overcooked, the diablo sauce; something was missing from the usual much loved sauce. Friends ordered pasta with cream sauces which were like wall paper paste. One sent hers back, they remade the dish and it improved somewhat. Hopefully they won't loose the original receipes when they move down Main.
