      One of the BEST in Kansas City!
      Located just off the Plaza this restaurant knows what to do and how to operate a fine restaurant. Service is always a 10, Food is always a 10, Food presentation is always a 10 and Ambiance is a 10. Great happy hour for both drinks and food. Feel free to take all your str8 friends and relatives there. In our travels from coast to coast this is one of the best for a Gay owned restaurant. You can never go wrong with any entree that you order. VERY upscale in a beautiful setting.

      Great Place
      It is a lovely place and personable bartenders and waiters. Monday night cocktail hour lasts all day. What a bargain!!!

      Bartenders are sweet and cute. Food is good. Great cocktail. Nice intimate atmosphere. Lots of single men here. Are they gay? Maybe I'll find out ;-) !

      tasty food, nice location
      Food was excellent but service was shoddy at best. Dined on a slower night. Employees were in abundance but their attitude ranged from blatantly ignoring customers to abrupt, forced friendliness- not what I'd expect with the prices / intended caliber of the restaurant. Would give it another chance, though.

      Good place but VERY expensive for what you get
      This is a very nice restaurant however the prices are just too expensive and the food is not that great. For the money you are paying it should be terrific and it is not.

      Exciting and High Tech !
      Wow ! Was in Kansas City visiting a friend who took me to the Cafe Trio. What a "WOW" kind of place. Looked more like something that would be in either NYC or L.A. Food was awesome. Great service. Can't wait to return next trip.

      I took my girlfriend there on a Wednesday night for our 3rd year anniversary and we both love it. We have never been there before and we read the reviews so we decided to go. We were happy about the free indoor parking for customers that led directly to a door to the restaurant. The ambience is so welcoming and the staff are so friendly and helpful. Our server was very knowledgeable with a really pleasing personality. And the FOOD....terrific. We definitely would recommend this restaurant to everyone and to our friends.

      Best Gay Restaurant in KC; avoid on weekends.
      A great atmosphere (though a little loud sometimes) with candles and often live music, wonderful wine and cocktail menu, delicous hearty entrees. The macaroni and cheese is famous. On the down side, the service is horrible on week-ends. They just can't manage the crowds. I waited an hour for my table, and I had a reservation. People get so drunk and loud waiting to be seated that dinner becomes a shouting match.

      Favorite Place to Eat and Drink
      A wonderful, friendly, and intimate dining and drinking experience. Please be aware that they will be opening a new location at 47th & Main during Oct 2008. Current location will then be a Martini & Tapas Bar until lease runs out(1 yr).

      A wonderful place
      A hidden spot in midtown. A great date place with live music. I've had many wonderful visits and have come to know the staff and owners. At the top of Kansas City dining!
