Rye Ratings and Reviews

Had our Valentine's Day dinner at Rye. We went with another couple. We each ordered something different so we could try and share the delicious food! Our server, Matt, was knowledgeable about the menu and a pleasure to work with - Thanks Matt!

The drinks, oysters, foie gras, restaurant made crackers were all wonderful as was the service. The house salad was almost all greens, with a bit of goat cheese, radish slices, and croutons sprinkled about. The shrimp & grits was good but too spicy (the server said sometimes it is mild, and other times spicy). The 10oz filet, which I ordered medium rare, was perfect in the center, but burned and charred on the outside. I had about an 8oz filet after cutting off the inedible parts. The restaurant tried to make up for it with a piece of house made pie, which we appreciated, but for the price of these steaks I expected better. Overall we would try again with different entrees.

Really good menu. All of the food was great. Not a place if you are in a hurry. Probably an hour and a half to two hours minimum. The steak is universally enjoyed. The fried chicken was the best I've had in a few years. Nice place.

We arrived early for our reservation, but they accommodated us immediately. They sat us in a corner table right next to a large party. I'm a little weird about sitting close to people I don't know. When I asked for a booth, they moved us with a smile. Our server was friendly, knew the menu, made recommendations, and was on top of us without being intrusive. Fantastic food. The T-bone was perfect, the mussels and Brussels sprout apps were delicious, and the desserts... wow.

Dined at lunch. I had the hanger steak meal. My first time eating hanger steak and it was OK, nothing great. The chimichurri sauce was OK. Fries were just fries. Overall my meal was sort of bland. My husband has the salmon salad. He said it was nothing special. So neither of us would order those entrees again. My son enjoyed the spicy chicken sandwich.

Moving to Leawood soon. While house shopping saw Rye from our front yard and decided to give it a try. Great decision, but now a bit concerned about the proximity to home!
I enjoyed the salmon salad with radishes, beets with an amazing champagne dressing. Husband ordered shrimp and grits, another wonderful choice. We topped it off with a yummy cinnamon roll.
Looking forward to warmer weather and their outdoor patio!

We ate here on a recent Friday night. My companion really likes the shrimp and grits here, so he had those with the spinach salad. I had the trout with the house salad. Everything we had was delicious. They make a great Manhattan, and there are interesting wines by the glass to be had. Leave room for pie. They have some good ones. Service is always professional. We sat in the room off the bar for the first time, which was a little quieter than the main dining room. The main room can get loud, so keep that in mind if that matters to you. Parking is a surface lot, so you may have to walk a ways.

Rye is spectacular (as always). Their bartender/house cocktails are outrageous. (If you're into bourbon, the Coffee and Cigarettes is not to be missed.) If you're a foodie it's entirely possible to simply combine fantastic options from the appetizer menu. Great service, and the value for the meal you get is outstanding.

Rye not only has delicious food, drinks, and desserts...but excellent service. You will not be disappointed here. We have been many times and it's always the same wonderful service. I recommend a reservation weekends or evenings on the weekend. :)

Our food was excellent and the service was great. The only complaints I have are that once the restaurant got crowded, it was very warm in there and it was extremely difficult, with our party of six, to hear those across the table.

What a great place. We had been to Rye a few times in the past but it had been a while since our last visit. When looking over the list of Restaurant Week options, Rye was our first pick. We were not disappointed. The chicken was wonderful, the potatoes were decadent, and the lemon pie unsurpassable. Our waiter, Matthew, was great. Because we knew what our meal choices were going to be, we asked him to recommend memorable cocktails and he did a fantastic job of leading us to a bourbon cocktail for me and a rum specialty for my wife. We wanted to get a hotel room close so we could try them all. See you soon, I'm sure.
Really first rate restaurant. My wife a ...
Really first rate restaurant. My wife and I both had a fabulous meal. The emphasis here is on "comfort food" and they do this very well. If anything, our waiter was almost a little too attentive, but he never interfered with our pleasure in the actual meal. Highly recommended.

I went to Rye today for Restaurant Week with some friends. We had looked at the restaurant Week menu ahead of time and there was a vegetarian option for my friend who does not eat meat. As she placed her order she was told that the RW menu we were given (same as the one online) was not correct and that the only vegetarian option they would have today was an omelet with cheese and onions. She asked if other vegetables could be added to the omelet and our waiter said no that no other veggies were prepped. I shared that we had pre selected Rye based on the RW menu posted online and he said sorry. That was that, very flat and not accommodating to the situation. Might want to make sure what you post online is accurate. It made for a very sour experience. The waiter could have at least checked with the chef to see if something else could have been accommodated. I won't be back.
