Café Sebastienne Ratings and Reviews
Had 11:00 resers for brunch...sat in atrium...noise level escalated as diners number increased...hostess wears too much patchouli for a resturant environment...cold aluminum surface on table...very minimal...but not in a good aesthetic way...service was slow...ordered a fritata...odd color/taste & overdone (sent back & ate a scone), other person ordered eggs benedict w/sauteed spinach on bed of Kobe hash...very pedstrian...nothing that would inspire a return...had pot of hot water for tea...no offer to refill...just a nonevent...it's too bad as it could have easily been more memorable given the museum ambiance...will not return...the hollandaise at Eggtc puts this to shame...
Soup, starter and dessert were excellent. However, the main courses didn't taste as fresh or as flavorful as I would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. And both meals were luke-warm. The restaurant was maybe a third full, so it was should have been easy to execute. We were disappointed.
Food and service is consistently outstanding. Enjoy the fact that the menu has frequent changes. Dale our server is always great. He is helpful with selection of wines to accompany entrees, etc. This is one of our most favorite restaurants in all of metro Kansas City!!!!
The service and meal was excellent, as always. However, seated next to us were four very loud young women who obviously were enjoying their cocktails and bottles of wine. The people who usually dine at Café Sebestienne enjoy their meal in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. When dining out, I would think people would be conscious of their surroundings and mood of the restaurant, after all it is not Applebee's or some BBQ joint!
Great food; dinner menu that changes regularly (check out the reuben for lunch). Top-notch service. For dinner I recommend reservations.
Great place for the wedding reception they were setting up in the larger room (we were there for a pre-concert dinner in the smaller room).
We enjoyed the flank steak with chimichuri sauce, roasted potatoes, mushrooms and spinach. This dish was amazing! We finished with a semifreddo of pistachio and cherries. It was light and delicious. The service and ambience were perfect for a Saturday afternoon date! We will definitely return!
We always plan a lunch at Café Sebastienne when we come to KC. The menu is varied and imaginative and we have an excellent selection of wines by the glass to choose from. We also enjoy the atrium as a venue, and spending time in the Kemper to enhance our day.
Service was top notch! The handcrafted cocktails were amazing, we loved our "mixologist". The food was expertly prepared, presented beautifully and delicious The entrees were all just the right portions for our group. We are middle aged ladies. If we'd have been with men, they'd more than likely wanted more food.
You can't beat the setting, beautiful museum!
Perfect spot for lunch! Enjoy the fabulous food, excellent service and then tour the art gallery. This is my 3rd time at Café Sebastienne and I'm already looking forward to the next time. Fresh, flavorful and beautiful presentation in a great atmosphere. What's not to love?
Great lunch spot befor hitting the galleries. The cucumber coconut gazpacho was light and refreshing paired with a crisp, white wine. The mussels were tender and sauces was flavorful with addition of sausage and beans. My friend had the sandwich soup salad trio and said it was one of the best Reuben's she has eaten. Noise level was a little high for visiting but service was great.
Rosé by the can, cool museum vibes, and great service. Appreciate the option to sit in the cafe or the courtyard. Love the atmosphere of both, but during brunch my favorite is the cafe. The courtyard can get very warm with the skylight. I am struggling to find any entrees that aren't delicious.
A fun little KC gem!
Been awhile since dining at c Sebastienne.. past experiences good, this time not so much. Ordered ceviche. Was very good...Lamb was tough. Had to saw with steak knife veggies like eating wood, I think it was zucchini slice. Other diners fish was undercooked till returned to kitchen.
