Tannin Wine Bar and Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Brooke (bartender) was phenomenal! Good is exceptional! Our server (never shared her name) was awful. One of the worst ever. Spilling water, rude, short, impersonal and annoyed by having to serve customers. I will return because Jim and Brooke did a great job of being hospitable which overshadowed our servers bad attitude and lack of service skills.

Our experience at the restaurant was fantastic, unfortunately, I got food poisoning from something I ate. Hence, I probably won't be returning and have a hard time recommending. Also, was a bit stunned to see that the 4 course tasting menu was nearly double the price on NYE. Would have been nice to know that in advance.

Beautiful place; expensive wine by the glass but great selection; out of eight, only half of us liked the food and one person in our party received the wrong entree; I called ahead to make sure the regular menu was available, I was told yes, then we arrived to a limited menu. The special, limited menu for New Year's Eve said "Daily Happy Hour from 4-6" and they would not honor the happy hour pricing when we asked. Won't be going back.

We were visiting on Christmas Eve so did not know the area well and went on the recommendation of a friend. We got the burger and some appetizers that were great. Sat at the bar and everyone who waited on us was wonderful. Gave great suggestions both about what to order and things to do around town. Would totally go back and recommend to others.

I love Tannin, and go there frequently, as I work for the Symphony. I recently had an exceptional dinner experience there (December 16). The octopus was fantastic. I was also given a bit of my dinner companion's burger - perfectly medium rare and delicious.
Because of that delicious burger, I immediately scheduled a business lunch on December 20. My four associates and I all ordered the burger, as I told them it was the best in town. When the burgers came out, only one of us had a tomato on our burger. Mine was well-done, when I had ordered medium rare. The nature of the meeting did not lend itself to sending food back or complaining at the time; however, it was very disappointing, and surprising (given all my other Tannin experiences).
A couple colleagues of mine went to Tannin today for lunch and had a similarly negative experience. I wonder: Is there a new cook being trained during weekday lunches? Or, is there simply a different cook that works the lunch shift.
As I said, I love Tannin. I hope to have many great experiences there in the future. I hope that this review spurs some positive adjustments.

Had a great experience at Tannin. I heard they had consulted with a top local chef to upgrade the menu. I really enjoyed my salmon entree and a great Argentinian Malbec. The service was great and I loved the atmosphere. Their wine list is quite extensive!!

We have the best server named Dan at Tannin that we always ask for. He makes us feel like royalty. Great suggestions on food & cocktails/wine. Our dinners usually last about 3 to 4 hours because we don't want to leave! Great Place!

Reservations honored immediately and graciously (even though we were quite early).
Our server was outstanding!!! Knew the menu inside and out. Knew wine choices (lots of them available at Tannins) as well. The menu has been improved in wonderful ways including three flights of CHEESE! American, Spanish, French cheeses. The root vegetables on whipped Feta Cheese was an outstanding start to the meal. By the way, my cocktail was created perfectly!
Our mains (KC Strip) were cooked perfectly and the flavor was among the best steak flavor I have ever had. We had the peanut butter cookie (warmed) but without the icecream/bacon on top. Still a great desert unique to the restaurant. We have gone to Tannins for some years now and while it has always been worth going back to they have really stepped up their game.
The chef has some great ideas. The wine offerings are probably the best in KC area matched only by the knowledge and accessibility of their Sommelier. The staff knows wine very well too.
We will be back soon!! Highly recommend Tannins.

Right sized delicious portions with wine pairings! I chose the 4-course dinner, which offered many good choices from the menu, each of which was sized perfectly. I felt full but not stuffed and like I got my money's worth so to speak. I also chose the half-glass pairings. The sommelier was very nice and made some very interesting selections, including a wine from Lebanon. He made sure my preferences etc. before offering his recommendation for each course. I really enjoyed this opportunity to sample various wines and to pair them with my food choices. All the food was delicious - roasted vegetables, steak, the stew, flourless chocolate torte! We had a mix up starting out with my husband's order. They brought the wrong appetizer, but it ended up OK. The tables are very close together, so the server stands between them you feel a bit crowded, but this also leads to a more intimate feeling. We were fine with it, but I don't know that I would consider this the right place for a more private dinner.

Terrific food and great wine. We had the for course tasting menu with the wine pairings and the sommelier came out to let us try each wine. Each wine was interesting and so well matched to the food. I am visiting from Chicago and I only wish they would move up there. The service was perfect as well. Thanks for a great meal!

Great neighborhood spot, right off the streetcar line. They have one of the best cheeseburgers in town, along with a lot of other good menu items. Loved the pulled pork taco appetizer, small but rich and filling.

Made a late Open Table reservation and it morphed from two to six diners. Tannin did not blink an eye and seated us very comfortably. Our waiter, Jim, was charming, funny and attentive without being overbearing. Ask for him when you go and you'll enjoy. Food and wine all good: pulled pork tacos, chicken roulade and eggplant parmigiana all were hits with crowd. Roasted beet and kale salads also popular. Wine choices plentiful and reasonably priced. Three had the flourless chocolate cake and cleaned their plates; three shared the signature peanut butter chocolate cookie. Very rich and flavorful. A good time was had by all; a great find just south of the KC Power and Light District.

The food was bland and undistinguished. We've been to Tannin several times over the past few years and have previously been impressed by it's distinctive menu offerings. This was not the case this last time. As mentioned the food was bland, however, service was above average, drinks were above average. It was a bit too noisy due to a raucous six-top nearby.

Second time at this place and it didn't disappoint. Opted for the 4 course w/ wine pairing and it was amazing how they truly did pair up the meals with the wine offered. Portions were not huge, but definitely filling and worth the money.
