We really didn't have a great time at all. The food was actually quite awful and I never wrote reviews but the steak was cold, asparagus dry and the lobster Mac and cheese had no taste to it at all. Very disappointing

We had a lovely time celebrating a belated Valentine's Day. Our server was delightful and moved us from a two-top table to a very cozy, more spacious booth once one became available. We did not request this- she suggested it which was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed fabulous cocktails before we ordered our dinner- both were made well and served promptly. My husband enjoyed his ribeye and I loved my petite filet with mini crab cakes. Both entrees were cooked well- delicious flavor- and our shared sides were also delicious. (creamed spinach, au gratin potatoes and mushrooms). We are hopeful that Plaza III will remain open- we have heard rumors it may be closing although it was quite busy when we went. I hope that this KC institution will be around for years to come, but just in case not we are glad we were able to enjoy a romantic dinner while it's still here.

Waitress was amazing! I asked for a larger ribeye than they were offering and the chef cut one twice the size. It was great!!😋

We love Plaza III and The Country Club Plaza area. It was my husband’s birthday and we have a fabulous meal. From perfectly chilled martinis to the desserts everything was fabulous. The salmon was tender and fell apart. The steak was perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The warm bread and scones are always great. It feels like a classic steakhouse we’ve been to in New York. We will go with friends next time. A lovely woman customer sang happy birthday to my husband. Her son said she was 100 years old!

It is not always a good idea to put customers at tables “on top of each other” or so close. This is where a seasoned host needs to guage the audience, and when there are plenty of open tables, i do not want to hear loud people next to me!

The food was great. I requested a Valentine’s table the day after Valentine’s Day. When I called ahead to make sure there would be rose petals or something signifying the occasion, I was assured there would be. There was not. The price is EXTREMELY high.

A Kansas City classic; never disappoints. Always a good call for a special occasion.

We went to Dinner on valentine’s Day.
My dates dinner was a petite filet and lobster with a loaded baked potato.
I ordered a Ribeye steak and grilled mixed veggies.
Had a great bottle of wine #466 (really good)
My dates meal was spot on.!!
Mine was not.! It was a thin non marbled piece of meat, that wasn’t cooked properly. I’ve had better steak at a Golden Corral.!!!
I had to ask our server to refresh our wine glasses twice.
Table cloth was damp.
For $250.00 one of the worst experiences I’ve had dinning.
Will not be returning unless comped.!!

After we were seated and placed our order it took an hour for our food to come out! Our waitress didn’t check on us hardly at all and when she did she was very short with us and never mentioned how much longer for our food. I realize it was Valentine’s Day but that’s why you make reservations for things. Service was just poor and amount of time to wait for food. Not worth the price

My wife and I had dinner during this past Valentines day for our date night. We arrived to a terrible valet parking senario where after 30 mins I needed to go out to check on my car park assignment number that they never texted me. Then my wife and I get sat in the quietest room possible so that a normal conversation wasnt even private. Then the food came..... 90+ $ for two medium rare steaks that were both poor quality cuts and very poorly cooked. Never again will I eat there and cant imagine I would / could speak nicely about it if asked.

Been there before in the basement it was GREAT, sat upstairs this time and not good at all. There was a fruit fly in my wife's drink, a waiter dropped a serving table into my spine and we was seated near the bussing area, it was loud, people running into each other dropping dishes, it was very unpleasant. And the waitress was not around, had one drink until the end of the meal and finally got another one. I took my wife for Valentine's day and was disappointed. Best part my wife was with me.

The staff was very professional and did a great job. I would have preferred to see my server a bit more. It caused more waiting than it should have.

Food was good, just not good for what you pay. I expected great food and it was mediocre at best. Including the steak.

We have been here several times! The food wasn't so good this time. I barely ate any of my food, very bland. The best thing was the crab cakes. My Husband had to send his prime rib back. He asked for medium well it was raw. It's usually not this bad. I talk about it all the time . Hopefully next time will be better.

Excellent experience. Capitol Grill has nothing over this place and you’ll save money as well.
