Quaint American restaurant, nested in the heart of the KC crossroads district. Small, but meticulously crafted menu. We have eaten a few times, but rabbit tacos, bison steak, and a creamy pasta dish were the headliners on our last visit. All were very good. Drinks were also very good. They offer a limited selection of beer and wine that seem to pair well with the menu. Service was good but spotty. Our server didn't have a great understanding of the ingredients of one of our dishes. Overall, the Rieger has very good food, good drink, variable service, and is a bit overpriced in my opinion. Note: The building, comprised of the restaurant, downstairs speakeasy and small hotel, dates to the 1920's as an old hotel.

Nice ambiance, good service and the food was delicious. My husband and I ate baked Rock fish and I can't remember the other entree we ordered but that was from their seasonal menu which had sausage ham and white beans. Their cocktails are good too. The food prices range anywhere between $20-40. It's worth it.

They have a great KC strip topped with bone marrow sauce. The drinks are fantastic and there is a speak easy in the basement. I would give 5 stars, but they served us a terrible braised rabbit once. Update- went back and had the walleye, roasted root vegetables, and pork soup. They were all great. 5 star rating.
