About Grand Street
After 22 successful years on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri, owner Rick Ghilardi brought the Grand Street dining concept to Lenexa, Kansas in 2013. Rick met his wife, Kristi when they opened the Kansas City location in 1991 and married 3 years later. They have made a dynamic duo in the restaurant scene since – Rick with a background in Restaurant Hotel Management from Penn State University and Kristi with an accounting degree from University-Missouri Kansas City.

Best Service Ever
"I just had some of the absolute best service I've had at any restaurant. Our server Phil was extremely knowledgeable and attentive throughout the evening. The food was probably honestly underpriced for the quality and attention to detail you could tell was put into each dish. The Bar staff whipped our table up some incredible cocktails, including a perfect French 75. And don't sleep on dessert! The apple pie was a stunning way to finish a fantastic meal."
Grand Street is a Treasure
"Grand Street is a treasure. The sherry BBQ glazed smoked pork chops were simply divine! Our server (Jonny) was charismatic and very knowledgeable of the menu. Once dinner is complete don't pass up a chance to post up to the bar. Caleb (bartender) will keep the libations flowing while providing great conversation."
My Go to Spot
"My go to spot!! This place has such a wonderful atmosphere and is so special to go to. The food is always amazing and well worth the price. Every meal I have I think to myself I could never make this at home and would strongly recommend the Capellini with chicken as this has quickly become my favorite pasta. Alex, our server, is simply the best and always makes my experience perfect. I love him!! Do yourself a favor and try this place for a special night out."
Everything was delicious
"Went out just because! The staff were very attentive and friendly. Everything was delicious and resonably priced! Drinks were very strong and tasty! I especially loved the flatbread! I had to tell myself to stop eating it all to save room for my main."
The Perfect Dessert
"The mushroom spring rolls were playful and unexpected with great presentation. I ordered an extra to take home, it was so good. The vanilla creme brulee was perfectly bruleed."
Definitely a Great Experience
"Definitely great experience. Our server, Emrie, was on top of everything with great service. We didn’t feel rushed and had a very pleasant dinner. I had crusted trout with potatoes and Brussel sprout sauce and my wife had salmon. Thanks Emrie, for the five star service."
