They have a diverse menu, and I was in the mood for something casual. I had an incredible bison burger, fresh cut fries and a cold Warsteiner. This meal really hit the spot! This is one of my favorite restaurants in the KC metro. Very creative, rotating menu with a lot of technique. The owners and staff are absolutely delightful.

There was so much potential here. I got the prime rib. They didn't ask how I would like it cooked and it came totally cooked to heck and dry. The curry butter was really good on top so there was so much potential, so I was sad when the prime rib came to me already cold. My husband got the... More

Husband and I went for the Thursday Tasting Menu. We sat at the bar before dinner and had delicious drinks (the Ginger Bird and the Moonshine). Dinner itself was incredible; every bite was delicious and flavorful. The wine pairings put the evening over the top - we had a great time.

Just stopped in for the first time for Saturday brunch before the holidays. It was the first dose of winter weather and everything was icy so the place was empty except for we brave souls. We immediately started off with the bottomless mimosas that lifted some of the haze from the night before and an excellent deal at $10. I... More

Our group of 8 + an infant were treated to another fantastic Prix Fixe menu on Thanksgiving (our 2nd time visiting Affare for this holiday). The food was outstanding and the wine pairings were en pointe! The staff went above and beyond to make our dinner special, including offering our infant son extra breadsticks and a sippy cup! It was... More

Friends, if your event is around 100 folks, Martin and Katrin Heuser will do you right. Award winning food, farm to table, superb wines, and a friendly business relationship are hallmarks of their private dining operations. We had our wedding at Affäre on Veterans Day. With the exception of my bride selecting her choice of the main course (braised short... More

We stopped in for dessert. The apple strudel with in-house made vanilla ice cream was delicious as was the chocolate tower. The service was superb and the overall experience delightful.

A delightful jewel of a restaurant. The food was excellent and creative. This may be the best restaurant in Kansas City. Comfortable and close banquette seating in the back near the bar made our evening so very romantic as we snuggled close and tucked in to the perfect dinner. This place is a keeper. Don't miss Affäre when your plans... More

Some friends invited us to meet them here while we were in Kansas City. An address on Main Street is not hard to find. We couldn't say the same for parking, and going into the restaurant, we were a bit skeptical from seeing what things looked like from the outside. It was quaint, not particularly exciting decour, a bit noisy.... More
