We were visiting Excelsior Springs and a local suggested we try this place. I got a chicken entre and loved it! They also have a large selection of wines to choose from.

Our dinner was fantastic. The service was amazing. I had garden chicken and really enjoyed the fresh flavors. My guest had tuscan pasta and it was amazing, as well. We happened to be there on half price wine day, a nice perk. The most phenomenal desserts were offered at the end. I would suggest the walnut fudge cheesecake! Delicious!

We don't get here often because we live an hour drive away but this is by far the best place to dine for miles around. Food is excellent, waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. Comfortable enough to be able to visit with friends without feeling rushed. I can't seem to order anything except the smothered chicken, its great comfort food... More

Loved this bistro cafe in Excelsior Springs. They lived up to my expectations. I saw on trip advisor that they were the place to go when in town for dinner. We loved the food and friendly wait staff. I had shrimp pasta which was wonderful. The salads were tasty and nice size. My sister liked her Avocado BLT sandwhich. We... More

In the middle of a dying town, it's to say that this restaurant has not decayed. They serve a great menu with good pairing wines. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere.
