Date night with my husband landed us in Brookside (Kansas City) and a wonderful little surprise - a great restaurant! The atmosphere is casual elegance. It has an urban ambience while still maintaining a neighborhood feel. Each table receives homemade potato chips that are thin and delightfully crispy, and they are served with a homemade dipping sauce. Then the waiter... More

Good food, maybe not great, but maybe I just wasn't hungry. My husband loved the fish and chips. Both of us liked the home made potato chips

Nice experience, food was good but nothing special but consistent. Outdoor tables were a mess. Should do a better job of cleaning that up for patio customers.

Happened to be in town and caught the Mother's Day brunch... it was great! The food was plentiful and very high quality for a brunch ( smoked salmon, ham, shrimp, too!) and the place warm, buzzing a clearly a hot spot for the Country Club Plaza set!

In the last month, we've dinned at Michael Forbes twice. Both meals were excellent. First time, it was during restaurant week. I had the chicken Marsala. It was flavorful and filling, prepared just right, and arrived piping hot....perfect. Husband had the steak, and although it was good, he wasn't as "enthusiastic" about his meal as I was about mine. Our... More

My husband and I took my daughter and her fiance out to dinner here to celebrate her birthday. The atmosphere is comfortable, if a little noisy. Everyone is relaxed and chatting so it makes you feel right at home. The menu selections were varied, which is great since my daughter is a vegetarian and the rest of us are meat-eaters!... More

On our 1st visit to Michael Forbes Bar & Grill, we happened to come on "burger night." Wow...delicious burger with brisket as well as the traditional way. The potato chips as an appetizer is a nice treat. Since we enjoyed our meal so much, we asked our waitress what the best nightly special was...she said "Catfish dinner. " So we... More

This is the second time that I have had take out from Michael Forbes Grille and it was great. At Michael Forbes Grille, it is the details that make the difference. I had a straight forward Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. First of all, this salad was a great size, large enough to fill you up, but not too large... More

We set out to Brookside to eat at another restaurant, but ended up at Michael Forbes and didn't regret it. The booths are very comfortable and our server, Jenny, was exceptional. We ordered a bottle of wine and were given warm, yummy rolls along with a basket of homemade potato chips. Everything on the menu looked great, so Jenny helped... More
