Renee Kelly's Harvest Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent. The server was very attentive but as usual we waited for our food. I was pleased with my simple salad.The dressing was great . The trout was tasty. This is our special occasion restaurant of choice. I look forward to the chicken pot pie being on the menu.
We came here for Father's Day Brunch. I was a little surprised with how the waitress greeted us, no "hello" or "have you been here before" she just asked what we wanted to drink. They were out of the special that had pork belly so the wife had the standard breakfast and I had the biscuits and gravy. Both were very good, the portions were a little off on my meal, it was 2 biscuits and the whole plate was covered in gravy and a very small portion of breakfast potatoes that was on the verge of being too salty. Our child had the french toast and it was also very good. We had to wait quite a while to have a our coffee refilled but overall it was a good experience. I would go there again but probably not my first choice.
This place is a quiet gem. The food is incredible, not surprising given Renee Kelly is a world renowned chef. And the ambiance is really cool, residing as it does in a hundred year old castle that has been completely modernized. Do yourself a favor and schedule a meal here. It is going to the top of our list.
We spent 3 hours dining. One hour before any food was served which was really good when starters finally arrived. Then waited for the mains which again were good when they arrived. We waited several minutes for desserts which were ok. The servers were attentive. Really expect some under staffing somewhere. Appeared that one server was tending the entire room.
The food was good but lost its luster when the dining experience became so protracted. Probably won't be back.
Menu seems to of shrunk.... not many choices for appetizers to share. We ordered 2 cauliflower apps to share. Not enough aioli on the plate and overall bland. Our reservation was for 7pm on a Friday night . We were the only table inside!!!! Frankly that was a little creepy. Service was just ok.. there were 6 of us . 2 people ordered the scotch filet but only 1 was available????? Trout was terrific and a lovely presentation.
Not sure if we will be back.
Went with my family for Sunday brunch. The RK bites were fabulous, as was the rest of the food. My kids shared the amores pancakes and thought they were heaven. Was not busy at all. Outside area was lovely. Bring coloring books or something for the kids to do - have a kids menu, but wouldn't describe this place as exactly "kid friendly."
My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Renee Kelly's and were very happy with the experience. All the wait staff were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will go back again to enjoy the wonderful food. Thanks for a beautiful evening.
Harvest was the perfect choice for our group to meet. Its beautiful, cozy atmosphere is welcoming. I asked for a table in a more separate space for quiet conversation and they delivered. I asked for a cake and the cake was sitting in the middle of the table when we arrived, along with a special message for each member of our group that couldn't fit on the cake. It was a very special touch that made all my friends feel special. The dinner menu was more pricey than we thought, so I wasn't sure choosing this restaurant was a good idea, but the delicious food that everyone ordered seemed to make up for any concerns about the prices. Everyone raved about their ravioli, salmon, and clams and mussels! Harvest was a good choice for our special friends' dinner get-together.
The food was absolutely delicious. We had a party of seven and sampled a good cross-section of the menu. Everything was outstanding. The service, on the other hand, was very poor. Our server was much more interested in chatting with a couple at a 2-top than he was in bringing food from the kitchen. I'll try Renee Kelly's again for the food and ambiance, but won't utilize that server again - ever!
This was our first visit to this restaurant. We had a very nice lunch, in general, but I was somewhat disappointed for having spent $100 there.
It took over 1/2 hour for our lunch to arrive, and not once during that time were we offered any bread or an apology for the wait so I would suppose that's normal. We didn't order anything super complicated, or off menu. It was good, but not great - as I had expected. We may return but would go for dinner not lunch.
We took my Mom there for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and it did not disappoint. From our server to the menu choices - everything was absolutely spectacular. I love that the menu changes and that it's a farm to table menu.
It is a little pricey but the overall experience is SO worth it. I would highly recommend this to our "city folk" who want to take a walk on the wild side in the burbs.
Truly amazing cuisine.
Loved, loved, loved the ambiance ... what a beautiful, historic building. The patio is also expansive and nice. Lilac bushes in full bloom greeted us in the parking area. Wine options were good and cheese plate was fantastic. The pork chop was out of this world ... ended up we all shared it, it was so good. The pasta option was good, but perhaps a touch salty. Overall, we had an amazing evening!
It's really impossible to overstate how terrific a job Renee Kelly and her team do. After numerous visits I've gotten used to being continually delighted and amazed by their consistency and dedication to their craft. I've never had a bad experience and the staff makes every visit a real treat -- always providing excellent food and wine recommendations (as both are constantly changing).
On this particular outing I enjoyed what might be the best pork chop I've ever had (succulent and juicy, expertly prepared and cooked) but let's face it -- Renee does everything well and whatever you order you'll be in heaven.
Renee Kelly's Harvest is a true gem and easily one of the best restaurants in Kansas City -- or anywhere else.
Danielle, our server, was outstanding!! We went here because I love farm to table and who doesn’t want to eat inside a "castle." But, everything needed salt!! And, I do mean everything. The woman next to us was extremely displeased with her "simple salad" and just lifted the pile of greens off her plate to show there was minimal dressing. I felt bad for her as she clearly was disappointed and no item is cheap at this establishment. I have zero complaints about the front of the house or the ambiance. I considered the food and wine to be overpriced. Maybe it was the menu for this month as I understand it is ever changing. But, for a $200 dinner for just 2 people there needs to be something memorable. Unfortunately, the only thing I will remember is to pass the salt. So disappointed. 🙁
We went to Renee Kelly's Harvest for a dinner date night with another couple as we get together at least once a month and try somewhere new. Certainly not disappointed here. Wonderful remodeled castle and excellent food. Sat at the bar first for a drink before our table was ready and enjoyed a conversation with the bartender. Seating in the big room near the fireplace was delightful and the ambiance was spectacular. What a lovely place. Food was delicious, as was the dessert! Highly recommend!
This place was delicious. We went for my Birthday, so we did it up right with drinks, entrees and desserts. It's a little pricy, but totally worth the cost. We were well attended to but not hovered over. Overall, we will definitely be back and have been telling people about our amazing dinner ever since.
We love, love, love going to Renee Kelly's. You won't find an atmosphere as unique as Renee Kelly's anywhere in Kansas City. The menu is so creative we have never ordered the same thing twice and all of our dishes have been fantastic. We especially love the service and warmth that Katie and Jim provide. Renee Kelly's is lucky to have these two working for them. We can't wait for our next visit.
I always enjoy eating at Harvest because the food is delicious and it's a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind historic property--one of the few of its kind in Johnson County. I like to think of Harvest as the Webster House of Johnson County, minus the antique shopping but far more interesting. The service at Harvest isn't the fastest, but that's just fine with me. It gave our party lots more time to take in all the details of the property and get (re)acquainted with the place. Our waiter was outstanding and very attentive. I also appreciate that Harvest's dining room is fairly quiet. As for the cuisine, Harvest does a great job of working with local producers and our food reflected it--very fresh and satisfying.
First let me start by the beginning, my wife and I had made a reservation on St Patrick's day evening (which was extremely slow!). The hostess seemed to be confused as she looked very surprised !
Then we choose to sit on the empty patio ( maybe another table), after few minutes we got a huge sewer smells brought by the wind...
The waiter brought us the menu and I will say by reading the menu the chef is all over the place no actual consistency on any style of cooking. Disappointing, definitely.
We did order a cheese plate, which arrived with maybe 5 little bite of different cheeses with a brioche which they called bread!!!!( REALLY!) and charged 18$ ! Whoa Nuts!! Then my wife choose the short ribs and i did take the quail which were very tasty.👍🏻👍🏻. We preferred stop on a good note so we skipped dessert and went to get somewhere else. Just wanted to vent this special day which was our first date for over two months!!
This was the first time that my wife and I have dined at the Renee Kelly Harvest. It was one of the best overall experiences we have had. The service ( Danielle) was great. The food was superb. My wife had the bass and I had the fettuccini with pulled rabbit. The atmosphere was wonderful.
