A word from Coal Vines
Coal Vines is a casual neighborhood restaurant that brings a piece of New York City to Kansas City's beautiful Country Club Plaza. As a specialty pizza and wine restaurant, Coal Vines is known for its coal fired oven pizza but is also complemented by a full menu and a wine list that is synonymous with quality, at a reasonable price point. We offer a simple menu of seafood, pastas, appetizers and fresh salads in addition to our New York style pizzas. The casual elegance of the restaurant is enhanced by great music and an energetic dining area. A Sunday Brunch is also offered and has quickly become a favorite brunch spot in Kansas City. The patio and open-air dining make this a popular nice-weather dining restaurant and the candle-lit bar and dining room keep the restaurant cozy during the colder weather. The popular Coal Vines Weekday Winedown (Monday-Friday 3:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m.) offers select glasses of wine for $5.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I had a really hard time deciding what to have because everything on the menu looked and sounded good. I would make a decision and then change it as I saw other people's food being served! I landed on the eggs benedict and it was delicious! The basil hollandaise was very different and delicious. Everyone in my group really enjoyed their food as well. Our server was extremely indifferent to being there, but the host was very friendly and helpful. He refilled our coffee and helped us out where our server failed."

  • "We had quick service from our server and the pizza maker let us play with the dough. He even sent dough to the table! We had a great time!"

  • "We had a wonderful brunch for Father's Day here. Danielle was an amazing server, with great knowledge of the menu and wines. The view was enchanting, at the window overlooking Brush Creek. The gourmet pizza pies had a perfectly, crispy crust and the sausage was divine. The granola was warm and fresh with a creamy yogurt. The cheese accompanying all aspects of the meal melted in your mouth and each was perfectly paired or prepared. The lemon cake was moist and just rich enough to satisfy without being too heavy for a brunch dessert."

  • "We love having wine and pizza here. The salads are the best! We love the pizza choices and our picky son likes the "Regular" as well. We have been several times and it is always a win."

  • "Good service and good food. Restaurant was really cold for whatever reason - the doors were open but they were just blasting the A/C even though it was gorgeous outside. Pizza is obviously the star but the mozzarella sticks and the tuna tar tar were also very fresh and clearly house-made. The one downside is that on the weekends if your dinner runs much later than 9 PM you are going to get your face blasted off by crazy loud house/EDM music. I'm no stranger to the club scene but you know how it is with EDM DJs...they think their music is awesome so they end up playing it loud as hell. It quickly turns into a dinner where you essentially have to yell across the table. Before 9ish though its Sinatra etc. - really great stuff."

  • "I took my family here for brunch on a Sunday morning. There are traditional options (eggs, omelets, pancakes) for non-adventurous eaters, but they also have some creative (and very tasty) Italian-inspired brunch dishes. They also offer carafes of mimosas (or peach/strawberry/raspberry equivalents) for only $12, which is more than enough for 6 champagne flutes. Their coffee was also quite good. The restaurant has some indoor and outdoor seating available, so with nice weather, it would be a great outdoor brunch spot. It wasn't very noisy (important when you have older family members), and it didn't feel crowded. In general, it was a very good and surprisingly affordable brunch."

  • "The Server while friendly was inattentive. Spent most of her time visiting with one specific patron at the bar. Had to request to others to get the server so our order would be taken, and also to get our check. Not a very good experience. On a positive note, the food was very good."

  • "We have been to Coal Vines two times now. My husband is extremely picky about his pizza, hates wine, and was very hesitant about going to a new place. We were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza. It was delicious, had ample toppings but wasn't drowning in greasy cheese, and had that great wood fired flavor. The wine list is nice I suppose, but I am a drinker of the sweet to semi-dry varieties so there was not much I liked on the list. Overall, a great little place. We will be back. "

  • "We suggested Coal Vines as the place to rendezvous before WarHorse and needless-to-say, we were disappointed. The meatball appetizers were lukewarm and the pizza cold. Our table of four was so crowded that I was eating under the pizza tray and I was not the only one eating "down under!" We really did not have the time to send it back and chances are we won't be back. Thank God, I gave up wine for Lent because NO room for wine glasses!!! Very disappointing!!!"

  • "We had a very enjoyable experience. Our reservation was ready on time and we were given a window table which made it that much more enjoyable to watch the outside as well as the inside. We felt like we were the only people in a crowded restaurant. Our servers were excellent!"

  • "Coal Vines serves excellent paper- thin crust pizza and yummy crispy chicken parm. This is a fun setting on the Plaza! The service is helpful and attentive without seeming annoying. The Caesar salad is dressed perfectly. My only complaint is that there aren't enough croutons. The croutons taste like they've been fried. We would've liked a bucket of them to take home. We will return to Coal Vines again."

  • "Absolutely love the restaurant Coal Vines. We keep coming back for more! Every date night, special occasion or when the craving hits-we are back for more: sharing a bottle of wine, ceasar salad and a large white special! I highly reccommend coal vines to anyone who is looking for a restaurant with great ambiance, service and food!"

  • "I was spending a few days of Spring Break with my teenagers checking out colleges in the KC area and we stayed in the Plaza. We had a great dinner at Coal Vines. We had an appetizer and pizzas that were delicious. My salad was excellent as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "The omelet I had was a bit overcooked and dry. I had an omelet with prosciutto and mushrooms and sausage. It was good, just dry. Served with potato wedges spinkled with cheese. Nice. The margherita pizza was fabulous! One of the best we've had since we were in Italy. Seriously. It was way too crowded and noisy for my liking for Sunday Brunch but that's just me. A lot of people enjoy this kind of energy and who am I to criticize that? I would recommend the popular Plaza venue."

  • "The table next to me, seated after me, but got their food before me, in all it took 30+ mins to get french toast, bacon and breakfast potatoes. I felt this was absurd, however, when I finally received my food it was good!"

  • "I went to Coal Vines for the first time recently. It was my birthday, and CV had an amazing review in the Kansas City Star. It was rather crowded (brunch hours) so I was glad I made a reservation. Our server was frazzled, but attentive, and the food was very good. The $12 carafes of mimosas were average, but you get about 5 servings in each so a great deal. Would not recommend for large groups as seating is close together. But perhaps would be better at night for a date. All said, I had a great time and will return!"

  • "First, we were positioned at a table that was somewhat right in the middle of what little bar area there was, which ended up being where everyone stood while waiting for a table. Overall, the place is very nice! We had scallops spiedini and a combo of two pizzas. Overall, I would say both dishes were okay - but not that great! The shrimp and scallops were pretty bland as a whole...the bed of greens that they were perched on were the only thing that livened it up a bit. The pizza was just okay...meatball with a hot habanero sauce was okay at best. Overall, I wouldn't go back - disappointed!"

  • "My girlfriend and I love this place. We like to walk to the plaza and tip into stores and listen to live music on weekends. However, many of the plaza resturants are over priced and mediocre. Not Coal Vines! Whether you are there for weekend brunch, romantic dinner or casual meet-up with friends, Coal VInes can fit the bill. The wait staff and management are friendly and highly accomodating. Food is great, made with fresh ingredients. We like the breakfast calzones on Sunday mornings. Meatball appetizers with one of their signature pizas for dinner. Highly recommended!."

  • "In addition to a fantastic wine list and attentive staff, we were treated to the wine cellar seating area because of the special occasion. Stone walls, candle light fixtures and the smell of Italian herbs and vino -- plus a projector/screen built in. I'll definitely keep this place in mind for events in the future."

  • "My cousin and I planned a lunch so we decided to eat at Coal Vines. We planned on eating what was on the "restaurant week menu" but instead we ordered something completely different. I had no idea they had a brunch menu with delicious breakfast choices. Very satisfied with food, drink and especially the staff. As soon as we walked in the host greeted us and was very pleasant so was our waitress. Overall good experience with everything. Even planned on taking my mom for lunch there soon!"

  • "Specifically selected Coal Vines based on their published 3 course luncheon menu during Kansas City's restaurant week. Even called ahead to confirm that the lunch menu would be available Sunday prior to making this reservation. More than a little disappointed to arrive and discover CV would not be serving their advertised luncheon menu; only typical brunch menu. Would have definitely chosen another restaurant that was participating in restaurant week with something more interesting than an omelet. Omelet was ok. Server was not particularly concerned when I raised the above issue with her. Better communication next time please."

  • "A group of us wanted to find a place we had never been. The menu looked amazing so we gave Cola Vines a try. I had the chicken and so did a friend. Both of ours was very dry. Two other people had salmon and had no complaints. I had the Creme Brulee, which isn't normally on the menu the waitress said. They should add it, it was heaven!"
