"Michael Smith is one of (if not THE) best dining experiences in Kansas City... you literally cannot go wrong with any item Michael & Nancy offer... go. Often. (Especially on Thursdays) (Italian Night)

"We dined at the restaurant for my son's 22nd birthday and from the moment we walked in the door our service was exceptional. Our server was personable and knowledgeable, walking us through drink and entree options. Food and drink arrived at a pace that allowed for dinner conversation without feeling rushed or prolonged wait times. The serving temperatures were perfect with salads cold and fresh and hot food hot not tepid. The highlight the evening was when Chef Smith visited the table and to my son an aspiring chef. We are looking forward to eating there again soon."

"I've been going to Michael Smith one and off for a number of years when I visit Kansas City. The menus are consistently imaginative and the food is some of the best to be found in a very crowded field of great dining choices. What sets Michael Smith off from the rest for me is the expansive dining room with tables far enough apart that you aren't hearing everyone's conversation. I usually find that the diners are a good mix of formally and informally attired folks--some on their way to performances others just enjoying a night on the town. Great place and terrific food and expert service."

"Innovative dishes blending uncommon ingrediants and flavors. Some work better than others. Pasta dishes seem underdone but that's just a personal preference. Food is good but on the pricey side for what get. Service was excellent, however."

"We shared the orecchiette pasta as an appetizer, two different salads, the filet and pancetta wrapped chicken breast. Hardly a morsel left on any plates. If you can't decide on a wine - ask Nancy for advise. She'll make sure you have something you like."

"Michael Smiths is absolutely the best restaurant in Kansas City. Dine there often and it is consistently superb. So creative. Always the freshest ingredients and unique ingredients as well. Great vino list. We are so lucky to have his talent in KC."

"My lamb was pretty good, but not enough food. Vegetables were just OK. I left hungry.
Service was good until the bill was presented. My bill contained an unauthorized charge for an “extra pour” of booze. I didn’t order a double. The waitress gave some nonsense rationale for the add-on charge. (I've been dining in fine restaurants and ordering cocktails for 40+ years and have never experienced this.) Neither the manager nor bartender came to my table to address my complaint. Michael Smith gained $1.50 in revenue, and lost a customer."

"We did not enjoy our meal this evening. We have timpano, thought it was dry. A little too much spice in the marinara. My wife had issues that evening with the mussels. We had a disappointing evening."

"We have enjoyed Michael Smith on many occasions and so were surprised by very subpar service on this visit. Our server was cold from the outset and reacted combatively to our constructive feedback regarding one of the courses (a lobster bisque that lacked cream.) Servers we have had in the past were nowhere to be seen, so we hope that this is not the new service standard at Michael Smith."

"Michael Smith is once more accessible since the construction of the streetcar rails disrupted the traffic. The food is always good. I usually have fish and enjoyed bream this time. It's a comfortable option when planning to go to the Kauffman Center."
