Diner Reviews
  • "4 of the 6 steaks that we ordered were over cooked and the seafood dish that was ordered was also overcooked. Plaza III is essentially the same price point as Ruth's Chris but about have the value. Would not recommend!!"

  • "My wife and I celebrated a weekend in KC for our 48th anniversary. We have always enjoyed dining at Plaza III and was not disappointed. The waitress/server was very enjoyable and seemed to enjoy her work. Our food was delicious and was not rushed in our dining experience. When back in KC, we will always consider Plaza III."

  • "They have the best service of any steakhouse in Kansas City. I also love how Plaza III still takes the time to present each cut of meat and talk about the different flavors -- you really know that you are getting the best quality. The side dishes and wines are amazing as well -- same with the desserts! This is a timeless place. A must go and a good spot to become a regular."

  • "While our experience was good overall, the cost and older vibe of the restuarant would keep me from going back. Service was outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The food was great - 5 of us and every dish was cooked perfectly. The menu was diverse enough to please anynone and being from Houston, Texas where we have as good as restaurants as anywhere in the world, Plaza III was a hit. The soufflés were to die for."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Great food, very sparse crowd on a Saturday evening. Very loud guest nearby was clearly upset, sending back multiple steaks, cursing and clearly not going to be satisified. This was disruptive to us as well as other guests. Service was swift and couteous; however, there were very few tables full while there on a Saturday evening. KC staple showing signs of aging past its prime."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Service was attentive and friendly. Menu was interesting and creative. Noise level was deafening. This is NOT a venue for hearing conversation at your table. Ambient noise level was loud and distracting."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Plaza III is a true treasure of Kansas City and a special treat for special occasions. Unfortunately, we cannot afford to eat at Plaza III on a regular basis, which is what makes it a truly special treat! NEVER had a better steak anywhere!!"

  • "I love the old beautiful set up of the entire restaurant. The window room is wonderful for late evening dining. I just don't know what all to say because any comments I would make are extremely positive."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Went here for a business meeting. It was very quiet and the service was exceptional. Kevin did a superb job! The food is very good but I would say the steak is not quite as good as Capital Grill but still exceptional. Pricey place but understood that. Would recommend for business and a special occasion."

  • "Cool old world ambiance. My T-Bone was prime grade but surprisingly chewy on the strip side but the full flavor made up for the texture and the filet side was also very tasty. I'll try the Prime grade Porterhouse next time. My wife said her Filet was rather tastless and dry, most likely as they don't carry Prime in their stand alone filets so it was lacking marbling and she ordered Medium which will dry out lean filets. But the cool factor of this aged restaurant brought back good business dinner memories for me as we used to take our English masters there in the 1990's. The sommelier was great and picked the perfect cab and price range based on my requests. I will go back!"

  • "Everything is of the highest quality. And they encourage sharing the side dishes as they are large enough for two. The wait-staff is very knowledgeable and friendly,"

  • "After being away from Kansas City for 18 years we recently moved back and had Plaza III on our list of restaurants to revisit. My husband's favorite. The food was excellent as always along with exceptional service. We did notice the restaurant looked tired, worn and not very clean. Piles of dust around the windows and around our table. The restaurant looked like it needed a good thorough cleaning."

  • " Lived here in KC for 50 years . Plaza III has always been first rate to me. Sun @ 5:00 P.M. was a great time. Not crowded and the service and food was wonderful. Also got to see some N.Y. Yankees baseball players who evidently knew where to find a great meal after a game with the Royals. Come on out anytime- you won't be disappointed."

  • "Had dinner with a friend who raves about this restaurant. The food was good for steak, mushrooms and spinach. My steak was prepared perfectly. Our waiter was very polite and attentive."

  • "Wonderful dining experience. The meal presentation was perfect. The meal was excellent. The steak was prepared just the way I like it. My hat goes off to the chef. The service that we received was excellent, the servers were very attentive to our needs in making sure we had everything we needed. The ambience was very nice. Perfect place to go on a romantic date. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family. "

  • "Went for a birthday dinner with husband. My filet was very overcooked (ordered Medium), though his was prepared appropriately. Very nice server but was not receiving the same level of service as other tables. Solid wine list but zero information about cocktails available in a menu format or when we asked our server (could be a new employee?). We might try this again for their happy hour, but won't revisit for dinner. It wasn't that it was an outright terrible experience, it just wasn't one that was worth repeating for us when there are other great steak and/or nice restaurant options in the city."

  • "food was quite good (not excellent) however too expensive for the midwest ($10.00 baked potato!!!!!) Note about Open Table: We did not receive the email confirmation so I called the restaurant to confirm our reservation and they did not have it so they took our reservation over the phone. This was last week and only today five days after we dined there did we receive your Open Table reservation confirmation telling us we are confirmed for dinner on 5/31."

  • "We recently dined again at Plaza III for a family birthday dinner. We were all disappointed in the food quality not to mention the ridiculous prices now. Our waiter was stand-offish at best when we pointed out that we did not receive one of the items that was on our bill. Plaza III used to be one of our favorites. It is doubtful we will ever return. "

  • "We were looking for a go to restaurant for special evenings out since Ruth Chris closed in March. We were not impressed. The steaks are of the highest quality but they didn't taste as good or even close to Ruth Chris. They served the steak with a béarnaise sauce which was very good but, you shouldn't have to serve steak with a sauce for flavor. The restaurant is very popular and has great steaks according to many, it just didn't stack up against what I like as far as taste."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Poor service . Unfriendly staff. Boring ambiance and dull vibe. Steak was perfect but sides were very average. Needs serious updating."

  • "We ordered the Friday night special. It was an incredible meal. However, the filet mignon was not up to the quality expected from this restaurant."

  • "I have been coming here for a great number of years, and I have never been disappointed with the food or service. When I worked down by Westport, I had lunch 2 or 3 times per week. It is a great place for lunch business meetings. It is elegant and quiet. I was also a regular for after work drinks and appetizers, as well as dinners. I would recommend it to anyone. If you have never been there, you have to try it. John "Bo" Bosaw"

  • "We went on a Sunday evening with a Groupon. My seafood bisque was tasty and spicy. The whie cheddar potatoes were warm and delicious. My 16oz KC Strip was cooked medium well, as requested, but was fairly tasteless. My wife's steak was cooked well done, as requested, and she was ok with it. We took our desserts home. The Key Lime pie was wonderful yet the cheesecake with strawberry sauce seemed weak and diluted. Service was good. "

  • "For the second year in a row, I was able to dine in early May at Plaza III. I learned about the restaurant last year on my flight to KC from Philly. Great food. Best strip steak I have ever enjoyed. Superior wine list. BAP as a side. Exceptional location and friendly staff. Simply cannot compare this local KC gem with a national chain."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We had a party of 10, I had not been to KC for years and decided to go to Plaza III for dinner. I had seen other reviews about bad service, food not being good, but I will say that we were served by two excellent servers. Our food was excellent as well. We had steaks, potatoes, mushrooms, salads, and souffles for desert. Everything was great. So give it a try again."

  • "It was our only night in Kansas City, very happy to have stumbled upon this local steakhouse. It's up there with Morton's quality. The vegetable crudites was a nice touch and the bread and butter was really great. They still do the meat display which I find to be a nice touch. The white cheddar mashed potatoes were amazing!"

  • "I was a little hesitant because we hadn't been to Plaza III in a long time and thought perhaps it wouldn't be as good as I remembered. It was excellent! Service was wonderful and the meal was one of the best I've had in a long time. My filet was cooked perfectly and the sides were enormous. Drinks were tasty and we had a nice table right next to the bay windows. We will definitely be back!"
