The staff at this restaurant went above and beyond to make our experience outstanding. We were under a tough time constraint and Tish suggested that we preorder our desired meals and that they would be ready as soon as we arrived. As we got to our table the salads and appetizers were waiting for us. The main course came out... More

We enjoyed our meal at Plaza III. It was hard for me to rate because if this had been an average restaurant at average prices then it would have gotten a 5 for sure. However for a very posh, upscale establishment where you can and will easily spend $100pp, I expect perfection. It was not perfect. It was a good... More

So we came here during restaurant week and I ordered the meatloaf. OMG it was amazing. Juicy, and the gravy was a perfect consistancy. The potato's were soft and fluffy and dessert was amazing this is a must visit

NYE Romantic dinner with my wife. We very much enjoy Lonnie McFadden and the Plaza III so this was perfect. The food is always amazing, well prepared, great service, and the atmosphere in the cellar is great. Jazz, blues, Sinatra and more!! Lonnie always delivers a great show!! Highly recommend the Plaza III for that perfect evening!!

It is sad. Lived in town since 88. Used to dine here 3-4 times a year. Over the last couple years the quality just hasn't been the same. I decided to give it one more try as we love the service and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Well we went for a pre-Christmas dinner. Still not good. We had two... More

I can see how back in the day this place might have been popular, but not now. I liked the atmosphere and the feel of an old steakhouse... dark wood and leather. But This place is way past its prime. The service was slow and inconsistent, some of the servers were rude, but the worst part was the cooking of... More

Probably one of the best steak houses in KC. The food was delectable. The wine was delightful. Service extremely attentive. Do yourself a favour and dine here.

My daughter and I stopped there for lunch during a day of shopping as the plaza. The place had a really bad smell that made it hard to enjoy our meal. We were dressed fine, we thought, but the hostess didn't even say hello, just looked us over when we walked in and told a server to "Put us in... More

We had a private room with two attentive servers. Drinks were on point as well as the food. Steaks are prime and flavor matches. The sides are large and easily can be shared with several. There is a cheese scalloped potato that will blow you away. Had the thick cut prime rib and it was excellent and filling. Save room... More
