The food was excellent and the service very good. My daughter had the chocolate peanut butter cheesecake which she loves. I don't even like cheesecake and I thought it was pretty good.

We were only in town for two nights, but after our first dinner here, we decided to come back the next night, too. I was hesitant to order a steak because my expectations were low, but the balsamic and blue cheese steak was cooked to perfection and tasted heavenly. My husband ordered a New Orleans pasta dish that had some... More

Ventana Gourmet Grill is in an old corner storefront on Broadway. It has high tin ceilings and exposed brick walls. There's a small bar at the back. Tables are spaced well apart. They were very patient and accommodating as we changed our reservation 3 times to add more people and alter the arrival time. They offer steaks and pastas, a... More

We were visiting Excelsior Springs and a local suggested we try this place. I got a chicken entre and loved it! They also have a large selection of wines to choose from.

Our dinner was fantastic. The service was amazing. I had garden chicken and really enjoyed the fresh flavors. My guest had tuscan pasta and it was amazing, as well. We happened to be there on half price wine day, a nice perk. The most phenomenal desserts were offered at the end. I would suggest the walnut fudge cheesecake! Delicious!

We don't get here often because we live an hour drive away but this is by far the best place to dine for miles around. Food is excellent, waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. Comfortable enough to be able to visit with friends without feeling rushed. I can't seem to order anything except the smothered chicken, its great comfort food... More
