Every dish and appetizer was terrific. Fresh. Flavorful. Plentiful without being wastefully huge. Prices were very reasonable. Great atmosphere, but a little loud if you want a lot of conversation. Fun location. Don't skip it when in KC.

This is a nice smaller sized restaurant with a unique menu. The item I chose was prepared well, served hot and moderately priced. Service was good. Location is good. The noise level made it difficult to hear conversations at our table. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Honestly this review is not so much about the sandwich, per se, although it was wonderful. It isn't even that much about the tomato-fennel dipping soup, although that was delicious and managed to have at once both very fresh and smoky notes. It is really about the roast vegetable side that was so memorably tasty that I can call it... More

We found this place on BringFido.com as we were traveling through this area with our dog. What a lovely place. Pets are very welcome on the covered patio and given a plate of bacon! The human food was amazing with many vegetarian options. My husband highly recommends the bison chorizo tacos and the fries were addictive; especially the garlic aioli.... More

Great food experience! Quaint and Relaxed atmosphere. Patio seating. Awesome menu. Absolutely delicious! Stopped in for lunch. Ordered 4 different items....each was absolutely delicious! Stopped in next evening for a nightcap. Friendly and engaging bartenders! We can't wait to come back to the KC Westside area and Westside Local!

Plenty of options for those with dietary restrictions. Because it is farm/market to table, not every item may be available everyday. Plays good music, but not so loud that you can't have a comfortable conversation. The food was absolutely delicious. Far more than just the typical American restaurant food. Probably not a great place to bring young kids. I'm sure... More

The mac & cheese bowl seemed bottomless. It was so big and oh so good! Great fries and sandwiches as well! The Blunch menu was not available on the Saturday afternoon that we visited which was strange. There were more items that we wanted but were stuck with a lunch menu.They also didn't have port, although that was on the... More

Their kale salad is to die for! We crave it every week! We love their heirloom burger and Mac and cheese with Korean pork belly... you can't go wrong with this place. I love to take my vegan and vegetarian friends here because there are so many yummy choices for them.

Probably the best meal we had in KC. I had the salmon nicoise salad, wife had quinoa, both were excellent. Nice staff and great outdoor seating. Great choice for dinner.

Loved the biscuit it was the best thing I had actually. I ordered the salmon platter that was a sort of Benedict concoction it was just ok. The potatoes were too small and didn't have the best consistency. Salmon was a little too fishy. My friends ordered a burrito it was a very generous serving and was good. The guacamole... More
