We were here for a late lunch and it was very quiet. We had a nice table by a window and other diners were outside on the patio. The food was good but didn't taste as great or fresh as expected. Service was friendly but...More

Another good meal and time at Westside Local. A small restaurant and bar located atop of hill overlooking downtown Kansas City, MO. Great, varied and organic menu. Service has always been solid.

Get the jalapeno jam burger--amazing! A beautiful building, good service, and really good food. I'd definitely go again.

I haven't eaten here for years, had forgotten about it. What a wonderful and exciting experience I had. The food was delicious and service could stand a little improvement.

Delicious, fresh, Farm-to-Table food. Good atmosphere as well! It is possible to get in without reservation, but I would make a reservation just to be safe. It is a bit pricey, about a $17 average. The vegetable risotto is phenomenal!

We are from St. Louis and visit KC a few times a year. Looking for a new place since Julian closed and came here based on TA reviews. Unfortunately, one of the most disappointing meals we've had in KC (and we're not that fussy!). Cocktails:...More
