Good dishes but sometimes the flavor was not balanced properly (too much acid or not enough). Not enough protein options but overall the food was good. Although, this seems like one of those places like "oh, if we serve it on small plates, people will think it's good/ fancy". Liked the gnocchi, all the deserts I tried were awful. Pretty good service and replied quickly to emails about large group reservations.

We had the chef's tasting menu with wine parings. Wonderful light courses, the flavors were very harmonious and portion sizes were perfect for a multiple course meal. Very fresh ingredients. The wines selected for the evening were mostly whites, and were very well marched with each course. They either complimented or provided a nice counter to the dishes. The building is lovely, multi storey converted house. Service was impeccable. Highly recommended place to experience a truly memorable it meal in KC.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The bartender mixed the best old fashioned I ever tasted. The service was terrific and the food was out of this world. And this was during restaurant week. I can't wait to return
