  • Try the Pendergast cocktail. Nice...
  • Best gin and tonic you'll ever taste. The Pendergast is fantastic too. And there's no bad decision on the (seasonally changing) food menu...
  • Lobster Roll on lunch menu with Sprouts. Amazing.
  • Jenn is the best bartender in the city. Don't know what you want? Tell her what you feel like and she'll make something up.
  • The Creamed Kale is exquisite. Brisket with Crispy Oysters delicious as well. As far as cocktails are concerned, give the Horsefeather a try.
  • The bartender on Monday and Wednesday nights is incredible. Tip well and tell him he looks like a young John Travolta. Oh and the pork cheek potpie is mouthwatering. Thank chef Howard Hanna in advance
  • Try the Octopus! It's absolutely amazing!
  • Try the smoked beet rueben
  • Best restaurant in KC - bar none. Venture out and order a Rieger Gin and Tonic. You won't regret it, regardless if you enjoy a "traditional" G/T...
  • Try the Rabbit Pot Pie, the Halibut on special, Sweetbreads, and the Cassoulet. Fantastic service!
  • The duck breast, sweet potato and brussel sprouts were cooked to perfection and the drinks were smooth. The Trey Bryan paintings give it a nice touch. It was upscale, without feeling pretentious.
  • One of the best restaurants in KC. Great menu and outstanding cocktails
  • The restaurant part above Manifesto speakeasy. It has a 1920's-30's vibe to it, and really good food. I recommend it for dinner.
  • Mellow ambiance and house liquors make for a great cocktail spot
  • This restaurant is INCREDIBLE. There is no substitute-- amazing cuisine, top-notch cocktails by some of the best in the city. And yes, check the men's room: Al Capone *really did* piss here. :-D
  • The KC strip was amazing. It was like butter!!
  • Great food, especially the small plates. Great Service. Great bar. Great atmosphere. One of KC's best restaurants.
  • The best food I have had in KC. Great selection of wine. Recommend the charcuterie plate, scallops, and the persimmon pie. Unforgettable experience. Amazing service from Cassie.
  • "The Rieger is writing a regular love letter to pork. The cocktails are well-balanced and the house made sodasthe ginger ale in particularare inspired."
  • Fantastic food, service, setting, ambiance. Cocktails and wine list were superb. Beautiful starters that include a pasta course selection. The menu changes as produce is available and seasonally.
