Its really about time Kansas City got a new steakhouse downtown that was NOT a chain! I am so sick of Capitol Grill and Mortons! I have eaten at the 801 in Des Moines a few time while on business and was pleasently suprised when I saw them open in KC. The inside of the restaurant is amazing! The detail given to everything from the sinks in the bathroom to the huge wine case in the bar really speaks for itself. The service was professional and attentive. I was totally blown away at how fast they cleared our dinner plates for our party of 12... a class act! We ate the lobster corn dogs, the prime rib and a 16oz KC strip with "oscar" on it. We haven not had such wonderfully prepared food in some time. We asked to speak with the Chef, who was suprisingly younger than we had imagined. Although he wouldnt divulge the exact recipe for the corn dogs, he did give us some tips for cooking prime rib at home. I cant wait to go back, some collegues and I will be meeting there for drinks and appetizers often. Good Show! -Charles Xavier

At first, the resturant looked drab and dim with little decor, just little cows and wooden tables and chairs. For the price, you get plenty of food, including homemade garlic toast and pickled beets with your meal. I had a house special, an 8 oz filet and shrimp scampi, which was reccommended by my server. The scampi sauce was rich and garlicy far beyond what I've had elsewhere. My date tried the Ribeye which was cooked to perfection, and though it looked a little fatty for my taste, he said it was just right, favorful and tender. We shared warm apple pie for dessert which was served with ice cream. overall, i was pleased with the experience.
I have been looking for a restaurant in South Kansas City that has a wholesome feel to it. I was impressed with the Mediterranean food, the family friendly environment, variety, and freshness of the food. Prices are very reasonable. For a family of four we paid $22.00 and had a box for the leftovers. The fresh baked pita bread is great. I am very pleased that the place has been serving the area for past many years. I go to Olive cafe for its food, relaxation, tea, Turkish coffee and deserts including Baklawa.
