We have had Story on our list for quite some time and so we elected to dine with friends during Kansas City's annual 'Restaurant Week,' which is probably not the best time to judge a restaurant. No problem, Story handled a full house (by 6 PM!) easily. Our server was almost invisible when doing the chores (clearing plates, topping off... More

Although the menu is very limited, there is enough choice for most tastes. Our meals were excellent and the service was friendly without being obtrusive. The wine list is comprehensive but badly overpriced. The very negative aspect of the place is the noise. The modern, stark decor creates an acoustic nightmare. The tables are placed elbow to elbow so that... More

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 very much enjoyed the delicious whitefish dinner. The service and energy of the restaurant was much appreciated. We also enjoyed our cocktails.

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
