I never know where my daughter will take me for my birthday - well, this year it was at Rieger's. The atmosphere was really neat, reminded me of a pub. The waitress, I believe her name was KC was fantastic. She explained several items to us, always very friendly and attentive. I chose the smoked bison short ribs, OMG!!!! words... More

This is a bit of a hipster place...but being decidedly older and not a scene guy this felt like a comfortable old place that was in fact recently renovated. The bar is great...food is eclectic...very creative and Good, service was friendly and attentive. This attracts a creative artsy crowd looking for great drinks,great food and an understated hip vibe

Great starters but fail on the vegetarian main. We ordered the charcuterie board for starters - delicious. The vegetable pickles were fabulous. The starter shrimp was great too but the vegetarian pot roast wasn't fabulous. It was a pile of mushrooms on mashed potatoes - not very tasty. Good cocktails and great wine! Excellent service.

We had a reservation for cocktails at the speakeasy behind the restaurant. As we left I understood why. People were lined up waiting to get in. You enter by descending a narrow pitch-black stairway and seating is limited. A "cocktail connoisseur" spent a lot of time at our tables (nine of us couldn't be seated together), going over the craft... More

Had drinks here with friends but did not eat. The cocktail menu was amazing and the two beverages I had were perfect. The dinner menu was very enticing but we had reservations elsewhere. Our server was attentive and very nice.

Fantastic service that was friendly and spot on. Food to die for! Lentil soup with squash and topped with pumpkin seeds and shaved apples was so amazing! I had pork and beans and 3 of the people had the rabbit. Dessert list seemed to be lacking so we skipped that. Prices were very reasonable. Make a reservation and try this... More

I'll be brief- my meal was excellent but there were problems with my wife's (menu said butter lettuce, it was clearly leaf, etc). We were practically bumping elbows with other guests. I'm more forgiving but my wife has a point- service was pleasant but needed more attentiveness (forgot my drink order from the bar). Not sure if we need to... More

Great cocktails. If you like meat I think this is probably ok but two of us had the veggie meal and we both sent it back. It was gross slop. We got the money back. Some staff were great others were surly. Very odd place.

After a few drinks at Manifesto, we went upstairs for our reservations. Our table was ready, and we were starving! I had a started of the butter lettuce salad - the presentation was really cool, with the cucumber slices wrapping the tabbouleh, and the butter lettuce around the plate. Nice. Then I had the bison steak. Perfectly cooked and sliced... More

Step back to a time where drinks and food were an event. The Rieger is so much more than a restaurant or bar. The make their own bourbon and the craft cocktails are amazing. Put this on your list if you are in KC.
