I've had drinks downstairs several times and love the speakeasy style bar. This was my first visit to the restaurant for dinner. Service was great, atmosphere on a weekday evening very pleasant. The food was good, but the creative drinks stand out more.

I figure the first trip to this place be a special occasion. What better than Valentine's Day?? Oh my, this was an excellent choice! We decided to get a few shareable plates and one main dish so we could try a variety of food. The pork soup... Probably best I've ever had! Seriously... You need to try it! The meatball appetizer was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. The main course, a tender, juicy, steak was top notch as well! I highly recommend making it here for a special occasion or just a nice night out.

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.
