Plaza III, The Steakhouse - Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
We went to Plaza III on recommendation from our bartender of the hotel we were staying at and we were so happy that we did. It was a great experience to celebrate our anniversary. I won’t say the steak was the best I’ve ever had, but they suggested the KC strip and we went off path with the filet, so if we had gone with their recommendation it may have had more flavor! The crab legs were excellent and the wine selection was amazing. The portions were great, they recommend sharing the sides and I would agree! This would be a wonderful spot for a business dinner.
Our server was great but the GM, Carolina, was wonderfully accommodating and welcoming. We also heard there was live music available on the lower level, but there was a private party there the night we attended so we did not get to experience it. Although I’d love to go back for that!
Recommended for special occasions or business dinners.
The prices were a bit high and the steaks were not as tender and extraordinary as I expected. In fact, my steak, a KC strip, supposedly prime grade, was a bit tough and gristly. The appetizers and service were both excellent and the restaurant was pleasantly quiet, so it was easy to visit. Overrall, it was a nice but expensive dining experience.
I was transferred from Kansas City to Arizona a little over 10 years ago. My wife and I moved back to Kansas City earlier this year. Since we hadn't been to the Plaza III in over a decade, we made reservation for my birthday. The dinner brought back pleasant memories of the past. The service and food was excellent. We are happy to be back in KC and are looking forward to future Plaza and Plaza III outings.
degraded food quality since last visit several years ago. steaks were cooked well enough but lacked expected flavor of that cut of meat, sides were mediocre. The reataurant lobby also smelled strongly of sewer gas, which also set poor expectations upon entry. over priced for what you get. many other options in the city at same cost with superior quality available. will not be returning until significant improvement in the food.
We have dined at Plaza III several times since the early 90's. The service was still first class. The food was pretty good however not excellent as it once was. The environment was a bit dated and probably would not appeal to younger clients especially with so many other options on the Plaza.
I have dined at Plaza III a handful of times both for business and personal over the last decade and I was truly disappointed in my experience this time. The quality of food was sub-par in comparison to other KC steakhouses but still charging 5 star prices. The oysters we ordered as an appetizer were borderline questionable, definitely old. The quality of steak was just what was expected for that price or quality of restaurant. Unfortunately we will not be returning. There are way too many other places in KC to get a good quality steak and this is not one of them anymore.
While the food was good, it couldn't take away the overpowering sewer smell. I don't know why we stayed as it was disgusting and a worker who was working on it I assume kept going right by our table spreading who knows what germs. They should have closed. There was a huge amount of rain about a week ago and I imagine it all backs up into the basements from Brush Creek. The health dept should step in
The feeling was very average considering the upscale nature of the restaurant.
The servers seemed to be counting down to when they lunch shift would be over. Got the feeling that they don't care for that shift.
As per the food, the steak was excellent as was the sides but the usually signature steak soup was noticeably too salty.
Have had great experiences previously but perhaps lunch just is a bad time
Overall our visit was disappointing. From what I saw, white table cloths on all tables were very wrinkled. Carpet was very worn and bathrooms were not clean. Not what you expect to see in what is supposed to be a high end steak house. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was just above average. My mom's steak was almost burnt. She is one of those people that doesn't like to complain so would not let us say anything. That is our fault. But, for a high end steak house, her steak should have never been delivered. It was clearly burnt. The same goes for the side of hash browns I ordered. Our meal was over $400 for the 4 of us which is what I expected. But the quality and care for details was not worth that. I seems like they are relying too much on their name and Plaza location. There are way too many other places in KC that you can get the same quality of service and far better food for the money.
This restaurant was highly recommended by a few people as being the best steak house restaurant in Kansas City. We ordered rib eye steaks, baked potato, and asparagus. The dinner was $40 per plate, and the wine $10 per glass. The quality was similar to what you would get at Denny's or similar restaurants. The steak was cheap, tough and flavorless. The potato had cheap toppings. The bread was ordinary and cheap. The wine grossly overpriced for a simple Napa Valley bottle. We were there on a Thursday night in mid-August. There were few other customers. The restaurant has no view or interesting decor or artwork, and it smells musty like the carpets haven't been deep-cleaned or replaced in a decade. This is a restaurant that must be surviving on a reputation earned years ago, which is no longer deserved. We felt cheated of a good evening that could have been had any a number of very popular (by the number of patrons) restaurants nearby. I would discourage anyone from going to this restaurant.
