Re: “Chefburger - CLOSED

Love 1924! Chef Burger, Pizza Bella, not so much. Have not been to Souperman yet. The food was typical bar food, nothing special except the location and the hip urban design. Would not recommend nor return.

Re: “Location-less Comments

We were excited to try this place but ended up unhappy with our visit. The food is average and the price is outrageously expensive for pancakes and a breakfast buffet. It is fun for kids but that is about the only good thing I can say. It is always busy so someone enjoys it.

Re: “Location-less Comments

Be sure to make the Daily Limit your last stop of the day. When you leave you will smell like a walking ashtray. Definitely a haven for smokers. Don't know what the fate of the Daily Limit will be when the KC no smoking ban in enacted. Other than the smoke, the food is good and the drinks are cheap.

Re: “54th Street Grill and Bar

54th Street amazes me that it survives. The entire wait staff is in a constant state of confusion. Sometimes food is prompt, other times it's a nightmare. While the menu is vast, it's the same thing you can get at Chiles, Fred P. Otts, Applebees. The one thing I can bank on is taking Prilosic before going. Eating at 54th Street is a weight loss program. I never eat there.

Re: “Location-less Comments

Remarkable how quickly this place went down hill. It was fairly good when it opened. But recently, October 2007 to be exact...I went to City Tavern with three other people. Our waiter was a bit stand-offish. She warmed up after a while. Food was very average, nothing on the plate was exciting or anything you couldn't do yourself at home if you were so inclined.

Re: “Bluestem

This one is difficult. In my pre-vegetarian days, I loved bluestem. Incredible food, great atmosphere, great service. Post-vegetarian, I was told "we'll make something amazing for you". They did...if a half a dozen pieces of baby veg neatly arranged on a plate is amazing. All of this for $30. Hmmm...prior to completing our 6 bites of food, we told our waiter we weren't sure that qualified as dinner. She apologized and brought us a small bowl of pasta. I thought it was such a nice gesture until we received our check. We had been charged an additional $20 for our pastas. WTF??? So...$50 each for a small plate of pasta and some baby veg. So...if you're a typical carnivore...great place. If you're vegetarian, my only suggestion is walk in backwards and bent over cause you're about to get it.

Re: “Location-less Comments

You get alot for your money here. Ribs are average, beef, and sausage is good. Good for lunch. If your in this area, and you want some Q with some real good smoke flavor, go down to Woodyard on Merriam Ln.

Re: “Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue

Good food , dont get me wrong. NOT THE BEST in KC by far. Way overpriced. Makes you think your eating at a steak house on the plaza. Ribs and sausage are really good. Burnt ends are good , but dont hold a candle to Arthur Bryants. Portions are not sizeable at all , for the money you pay. You pay for the steakhouse atmosphere. Sauce is average.

Re: “Rosedale Bar-B-Q

Dont like the sauce. The ribs are good, so is the beef sandwiches. Alot of fries for your money. I grew up eating at this joint, being its my moms favorite. As I got older, I graduated to Bryants, Joes, and the Best kept secret in Wyandotte County , The Woodyard.

I visited the other day to sample the lunch buffet, which was delicious and had a number of offerings. But the service was abysmal.

Re: “Trezo Mare

The restaurant itself is STUNNING! The service was good; however, I prefer a bit more personality. The food, it looked beautiful, but if I'm going to pay $30 for a piece of fish I want it to take up the whole plate! Many of the items on the menu, I had never heard of and the servers didn't really know what they were either. Overall, I think it was fine. Be prepared to spend money!

Re: “Matsu Japanese Restaurant

They have a bubble tea sign displayed in their window, so we stopped in once to try their version. It was really the worst bubble tea we have ever had. If you want really excellent bubble tea go around the corner to Tea Drops in Westport. As for the sushi, it was good but more expensive than other places. Try Friends or Domo instead!

Re: “Location-less Comments

The prices can be startling at first. No one expects to pay what they ask for chicken and waffles. However, then the server warns you "everything here is huge, It can easily be split by two people, if you want an "average dinner" sized portion, I would order an appetizer. Well, people often say that, so being the skeptics that we are, Jeff and I order full blown dinners. He orders a "famous 1 lb burger" stuffed with bacon and cheese and something else. I had the chicken and waffles. The food showed up and both of us stared, bewildered, at what was easily enough food to satisfy the army of a small country. Chicken adn waffles were outstanding! The waffles were stuffed with BACON... BACON! Having just moved back from the south, this was a welcome suprise. The food is homestyle, almost southern. Jeff and I commented that just like everything out at the legends, this place is completely over the top. The only complaint I have is the bizarre decor. It appears as though some overzealous designer tried to create a modern contempo barn house... and failed... miserably.

Re: “Location-less Comments

Some of the things on the Menu here were AMAZING (you must try the fried calamari with what might be the sweetest marinara sauce I've ever had, the mozzarella wrapped in procuitto was excellent, I could've made a meal of it). Other things were not so great. The scallop appetizer, while cooked properly, sat on an overseasoned risotto with a side of VERY bitter greens. The Tagiattlle which I paid nearly $15 for, was at best a glorified fettuccini alfredo. A diner sitting with us had a steak called the "dirty steak", its not on the menu, but if you have $30 to spend on a KC Strip (I for one would NEVER spend that kind of money on that cut of meat), I've been told its quite good.

Re: “Garozzo's Ristorante

If you like garlic, I mean a LOT of garlic, and very sweet red sauces with garlic (and did I mention a LOT of garlic) and slightly over-cooked pasta in large quantities heavy on the sweet and GARLIC, this is your kind of Italian. Where I grew up this was called Immigrant Italian and the style is really a lot more Sicilian than Italian but if you like pasta with red sauce that is very sweet and is coated in Garlic, you will like this place. Dracula will stay away so you will be safe from vampires. And if any family members do not dine with you I really suggest you send them away for 24 hours or risk having them collapse from your GARLIC breath. I bet this restaurant uses more garlic per serving than any other restaurant in the city, or even the state. Did they buy garlic cheap or just confuse cloves with heads in the recipe? But teh sauce is sweet you can skip desert. And the signature Chicken Spedini is dry and has a lot of garlic too.

Re: “Kababesh Grill

I am always up to try new Indian restaurants, but many times end up being disappointed. I was a bit disappointed with Kababesh. You are not able to get their buffet to go. The price is overall more expensive than all of the other Indian restaurants that I have tried in Kansas City, while the flavor of the food was very average. In my book, Korma Sutra in Westport has the best food, the price is reasonable and you can get the buffet to go!

Re: “Location-less Comments

I have been to Cassis four times over the past year and it has slid downward each time. When they launched their 'summer menu' that was it. They used to have a bone-in chicken that was awesome that got swapped to a piece of chicken swimming in broth...yuck. It seems this happens to most of Patrick Q's restaurants..good to start...decline..close. Rememeber Hanna Bistro?

Re: “Jasper's Restaurant

Last evening my wife, our daughter, and I dinned at Jaspers. Overall we were satisfied with our experience and may return at some future date. Several things spoiled what otherwise would have been a great experience. First, our waiter was overly attentive, returning several times to the table to inquire, “How is everything”. While some may appreciate this type of attention, after the third time it became annoying. Second, while décor/atmosphere was very nice and appropriate, the restaurant acoustics left a great deal to be desired. Because of reverberations, it was difficult, if not impossible, for the three of use to converse without raising our voices. After a while the noise level became tiring. The restaurant definitely needs to invest in some sort of sound deadening in the main dining room. Finally, we were disappointed with the sauce served with two of our pasta dishes. The sauce is question was a thin, sweet tomato sauce that was very reminiscent of Campbell’s cream of tomato soup – but with more garlic. We were definitely not impressed by Jasper’s tomato sauce. While the tomato sauce lacked character, the Bruschetta Alla Gaspare antipasto was excellent as were the dessert selections. One final note, the prices shown on Jasper’s online menu (http://www.jasperskc.com/menu.htm) appear to be out-of-date.
