The food is ridiculous, and I mean that in a good way. Sirloin steak dinner. Pork roast dinner. Amazing. The presentation was lovely. We don't know much about wine, so we followed our server's suggested pairing and it was great. I didn't care for the rolls, but that was a personal preference (my boyfriend ate enough of them to convince me there was nothing wrong with them). Service was great, nice atmosphere, blah blah blah the important thing is that the food was incredible.

Amazing, clever food and genuinely caring service. The 8-hour roast my mother got was the best I'd ever had, and the mushroom and spinach wellington that came with my KC strip was just awesome. Everything was so great. There were 4 of us who went here before Wicked, and it was very much worth it. I only wish we had time for dessert.

This restaurant used to be fantastic years ago, back when it first opened. But now, it has really gone downhill. The entrees and desserts are good, but the appetizers and sides are a complete joke. But that wasn't the worst part. The service is downright AWFUL! Tyler was our server, and looked like he could be related to Michael Smith. He communicated in low, one-word grunts and looked like he hated to take our order. The servers there now wear black t-shirts and cargo pants, as if they are going to a metal concert or something. When we arrived the hostess took my girlfriend's coat, but when we were leaving, the hostess told my girlfriend to get her own coat out of a strange closet. We won't ever be back to Michael Smith.

Horrible service. I paid for my bill... about $47 then another charge showed up for $176. Somehow they charged me for someone elses dinner.

Michael Smith, and the chef the restaurant is named after, offered up a fantastic evening for my wife and I. We splurged with wine and the 4-course dinner, which allows you smaller portions from the main dining list and not just a prix fixe menu. Our waitress was confident, knowledgeable, and offered opinions when asked, but not pretentious. She was actually gracious with an extra couple of glasses of wine when the 2nd entrees took a bit longer than expected. Chef Smith also came out to check on the dishes he had prepared and to ensure that everything was up to par. While the price is certainly steep, the food and the experience justifies the splurge. We won't hesitate to be back the next time we've got a little cash to burn.

Kansas City Gem. This is one of our favorite date night spots because we know the atmosphere and presentation will always be an intimate one. You don't have to dress up--you can go trendy/biz casual and fit in just fine. I've always worn jeans with a nice shirt and never felt out of place. We dined here on Saturday night and I had the agnolotti, scallops and pecan torte. Our waiter was amazing and his recommendations were spot on. Yes, it is expensive but personally, I will always pay more for an unforgettable dining experience and that's what we get every time from Michael Smith.
