This place rocks! We really like the food and service. The location was very close to the Elms. Food was excellent and you could tell it was homemade.

Amazing dinner find whilst in Excelsior Springs. This would have been a 5 if not for the canned green beans served with my steak...why not fresh, would have been over the top. Hubby had smothered chicken, omg, too fab! Only regret, didn't get the cheesecake...too...More

This place has something for everyone. We love meeting our kids here for dinner. Service is always great and food is nothing less than amazing. Great place to enjoy dinner with the family and we never pass on the amazing dessert. Relaxing environment.

This was my favorite restaurant in Excelsior Springs. The interior is nice, feels like a European bistro. Great wine selection. We had the cheesecake and it was amazing!

Small portions nothing spectacular. Not much menu selection or of wine by the glass. Some inconsistancy.

We thought this place might be expensive but it isn't. Really nice and the food was wonderful. My daughter and I split a steak and potato. The waitress heard this and the food came out on two plates, no extra charge. This potato was perfect,...More

Located in a historical downtown district. Bistro type atmosphere with original wood floors, tin ceiling, and brick walls. Owned by two sisters who have brought great flair to their menu with family recipes and ingenuity that appeals to everyone. Serving steaks, pastas, burgers, seafood, and homemade desserts, you will want to come back over and over.
