This stylish place is located in the older, Northern part of Johnson County in a remodeled shopping center. Clearly, it is for serious diners with an eclectic, international menu that often emphasizes fish dishes (although several in our group had the veal loin and another the short ribs - both excellent). Servers are friendly and efficient and show a solid... More

We were in Kansas for the weekend visiting family and decided to visit Story after reading all the rave reviews. We were promptly seated for our Saturday night reservations and the staff was wonderful. The menu is limited but that allows the kitchen to focus their attention of lovely apps and entrees. We had the duck empanadas and ravoli apps... More

Story must be one of the forward-thinking places that's elevating Kansas City's dining scene. This locally-owned chef-driven restaurant is located in an updated mid-century era mall on the Kansas old-money side. There's lots of growth/redevelopment here and Story holds its own against several other popular local restaurants. The large dining room is modern minimalist and there is also pleasant patio...

I picked Story on Open Table just to try it, and I'm so glad I did! (Be sure to make reservations!) It had trendy and fun decor, quiet, and fantastic service. I started with the chowder and briefly considered just lifting the bowl up to lick clean at the end. It was *that* good. My husband started with the ceviche... More

Story is a chic place with modern decor and a small, but mighty, menu. We made reservations online and were seated immediately on arrival even though the place was quite busy, as expected on a Friday night. Make no mistake, the food is divine. My husband started with the duck empanadas, followed by the pork cheeks, finishing with the chocolate... More

Wanted to eat at Cafe Provence, but they were full, so we walked across the street to Story.....Very Glad about the circumstances! Our meal was outstanding.....I had the beef short ribs and they were scrumptious.....My bride chose the Chicken dish and loved every bite. The service was superb (not overwhelming but there when needed) Highly recommend!

Nestled in a trendy shopping mall this upscale unpretentious haven honoring creative cooking is a delight in many ways. From cocktails to dessert the menu delights with unusual fun and tasty combinations rarely paired together with such pizzaz. I could not resist the foie gras with cornbread and honey and a reduction sauce and my enter was an amazing combination... More

This restaurant was recommended as part of our week long birthday celebration. The place is located in a shopping area and tables are quite close together so felt a bit squeezed in. The food was very good however one of the entrees had to be heated as it came out less than warm. The service was good but impersonal. We... More

The adults in my family enjoys an elegant "grownups only" dinner out on Dec 23rd each year. I'd heard so many wonderful things about Story, so I selected it for this year's event. Better Half and I shared a simple but amazing green salad of tender green and red leaf lettuce, pistachios, and the most amazing understated vinaigrette. For my... More
