Bad Service..Cold Food – I went here for a friends birthday. Our waiter came to our table to take our order, bring us our food, and then he never came back. He continued to wait on those that were really part of the greek family. The one time he did come back, he took my friends food before he was done eating. Speaking of food, the food we got was cold..not even cooked. Even after complaining about how badly we were treated here, still no compensation.
Great Food!!! – We experianced great service and above all the food was outstanding!!!! The atmosphere was good.We will go again!
Horrible Service – We went on a saturday evening about 6pm and it was difficult to get the waitress to come by and get our drinks. We were about the only ones in the restraunt at that time. The food for the price was nothing spectacular, again, service staff very difficult to find and rude at that. It started to get a little busy about 7:30 and the staff was apparently in a hurry to move us out and started clearing and banging the plates. Very rude and we had not all finished our dinner since it took so long to get! They have a live band and a dance floor which they proudly mentioned when we made the reservations but apparently you are not allowed to dance as the staff was running into my granddaughter who was the only one having fun that evening. Band was wonderful!! But not enough to compensate for the lousy and rude service. Oh and because we were with a large group our waitress proudly added her 17% tip. Really, I would not recommend or go back.
New Year's Eve Disaster – We had 9pm reservations. Not seated for about 45 minutes. Someone in our party said, we have reservations; the "host" said, everybody does, baby. Got our appetizers about 45 min later, then waited another half hour for salad. Our entrees were not served until 11:30p.m. The waiter never stopped by to explain the delay. Would have ordered more drinks, except he never came by for that either. We had to ask him to clear plates, beer bottles, etc. He walked out of our area several times empty-handied - an experienced person is always carrying something back to the kitchen. The whole fiasco cost $50 bucks per person, $110 with tax. I left a $15 dollar tip in the spirit of the holiday, but he was actually worth about a third of that. It was an awful way to start the new year and next year I'll stay home and eat frozen pizza before I spend my time and hard-earned money there.
Great Food!! Great setting! Terrible Service!! – Very nice dim light atmosphere. They just might have the best gyro meat I have ever eaten before. The Shish Kabob was excellent, it was very tender and juicy. There was also a very funny musician that made our wait a little more barrible. The problem I had though was with the service. I went in a large party and since our gratuity was already added to our bill, we recieved the worst service. It took over 45 minutes to order and another 35-45 minutes to get the food, and this was on a Tuesday night. At one point all but one of the twelve or so people at my table had empty glasses and the waitress was nowhere to be found. It's a shame because the food .although a little overpriced, was so good but the service we recieved convinced me to not go back and not recommend this restaurant to anyone else.
Fantastic food, great fun – We just had our first night at Tassos and it was amazing. Great food and a fantastic atmosphere. The live music was really good and the musician doubled as a comedian, great family fun. The belly dancer was awesome. We went with our kids and they were made to feel very welcome. The kids had a blast and didn't want to leave. They danced and danced. The food was excellent, the service was great. Tassos is now our favorite restaurant in Kansas City.
The Good and The Bad – We went out to Tasso's with some friends and I have a split opinion about this place. While we all agreed that we had a lot of fun- the atmosphere was great and the food was plain awesome- the service was really bad.
We arrived at Tasso's about 6.30pm and had to flag down a different waiter to find our waitress so she would come by and take our orders about over an hour after we arrived. She never came by to fill up our drinks and was plain rude to us. I know that the restaurant was packed, but if you can't handle it... you catch my drift. The other waiters seemed to be fine with their tables, too, and people who arrived well after us got their dinner about the same time we got ours.
Then the bill came and instead of it being printed out from a computer, it was a handwritten mess. We could not figure out some charges and were definitely overcharged for ouzo's. The prizes written down on the bill varied from the ones printed out on the menu, which struck us all odd. We also had taxes added onto our final prize... oddly, the tax percentage was not right, which made us all feel really ripped off. Since it was such a hassle to even get her attention and because of her rudeness, we did not mention it, but it reflected on the tip.
I would definitely go again for the food and atmosphere, but next time I am bringing a calculator so I won't get overcharged again.
Go for the entertainment! – Tasso is a great place for entertainment, but if you have been to Greece or know what real Greek food taste like then this place might not impress you. Service was slow and at times, we seem to be a burden to the server. Other than that, we really enjoyed the live entertainment.
Break a Dish – I had my doubts about taking 2 young girls (9 & 11) to a restaurant that boasted a belly dancer, but Tasso's has such a family atmosphere that it was like watching a girl friend on the dance floor. And the interaction with the patrons was so fun to watch. Our entire party agreed that we had a wonderful time, wonderful food, wonderful entertainment and the greatest service. Take the entire family and be ready for fun.
A SURE FIRE GREAT TIME – My family has been going to Tasso's for over 25 years. The food is great and the portions are huge. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. The belly dancer is fun for young children- who she dances with and often gives them a jewel for their forehead, or for 100 year old men and anyone inbetween. It is a classic in KC and a sure bet to get the whole group in a festive mood. The building is not stuffy or pretentious but top drawer patrons often can be seen. It's well worth the trip and is a full evening of entertainment.
