    This was the first time we dined at Wandering Vine. After reading about it and going through the menu and reviews, I picked the restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Although mostly glowing, the reviews didn’t do it justice. Wandering Vine far exceeded my expectations! The service, food and ambiance were outstanding (we were even surprised by live music). I would rate the restaurant as easily one of the best (best?) in the Kansas City area. We looking forward to our next visit!

    Very unimpressed with everything, let’s not act like you guys run some amazing fancy place in Shawnee. We dressed better then the staff, serve was slow, our server had 2 tables so that was surprising. Bread app was good, but received our steak dinner and horrible. How could someone charge $50 for that, fat chewy crap, I would of rather went to longhorn, spent less and better food. After letting the manager and waitress know about the steak they gave us a sad excuse that sometimes meat is like that. When you only have 8 entrees at that price they should be on point! Manager took off the steak and offered something else, we went with a strawberry tart by then and it was delicious. Did revive a gift card to come back, I’ll order a dessert to go. Not exactly what my birthday dinner should of been like but oh well.

    It was a wonderful experience and something I would definitely do again. We sat outside so there wasn't any noise to speak up. The food was delicious and it was a nice touch to speak with the owner and hear the story about Mr. Hershey. I was expecting the menu to be more expensive than it was but is easily affordable. The castle is a perfect setting and provided great ambiance.

    Phenomenal!! If you have not dined here, shame on you. Such a beautiful dining experience and a treasure for the area. My husband and I were greeted by the general manager who gave a compelling presentation of the history of the castle. We were seated in a lovely spot in the main dining room which offered a wonderful view of the entire castle. We had a superb server, Becky who was so knowledgeable on the wines and menu. She made perfect suggestion and recommended the best choices for all the courses. We were so impressed with the fact it was a true dining experience. They block our reservation for a two hour time slot so we can enjoy and savor. We loved meeting the owner, Carla Dyer and hearing a brief history of the way the castle came about. Love that if you want to celebrate a special occasion, the castle staff make it a priority to make your special day something to remember. As the weather gets cooler and the trees begin to change, we look forward to dining on their lovely patio. Thank you Wandering Vine. We are already planning our next trip

    Absolutely Amazing! The food, WOW! The atmosphere was beautiful and quaint. We were seriously “wowed” by all of the food. We enjoyed two small plates, split the sirloin steak and had desert. Everything was fabulous! Our waiter was phenomenal. He must have heard my husband and I discussing how to have our steak prepared, and even brought it out the way we each wanted it. We will definitely be back, and I highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

    What an unexpected find! This was one of the best meals we’ve ever had, and the atmosphere was outstanding. I had the lamb chop, and it was perfectly prepared and delicious. My wife ordered the pasta, and she’s convinced it’s the best she’s ever had. The pastry appetizer we shared was also fabulous. Both owners came out to greet us—a nice touch. We can’t get back soon enough.

    The owner were there and greeted us and talked about the history of the building and the restaurant. Really cool building and the food was excellent. Great wine list with flights of wine available in case you can’t decide on one. Wait staff is informative and friendly and has great suggestions. They were in top of everything and removed dirty plates immediately! I dropped a fork and within seconds the owner was at my side to replace it! This is a hidden gem’. We will be back soon!

    Another fantastic dinner. The Peach and Burrata salad was absolutely amazing. My wife enjoyed the Beet salad followed by the seared scallops.I had the lamb chops with the roasted cauliflower and beet risotto. It doesn’t get any better than this.

    Charcuterie plate was average at best. The Ceasar salad was good and the beet salad was unbelievable. I was quite disappointed in the chicken sandwich. The problem was not with the taste, but with the bun. It was totally the wrong vessel for this chicken breast. It was uneatable as a sandwich even after cutting it in half. It just totally fell apart.

    As usual the food was exquisite. The sever was doing many tables, and was very slow to get back to us at every stage (greeting, drinks, ordering, follow up,desert, check) and as a result dinner took 2hrs 50 minutes. Yes it’s great not to be rushed but this was just too slow. Not his fault. He was gracious and professional. He was crazy busy and probably dong his best. But we got tired of waiting. I hope they can find more staffing, if that s the issue.
