It was terrible...Food, ambience, service...We will never go back. They ruined our Valentines Date!!!
Understaffed, food was “fair”
We think this is the most romantic and upscale designed restaurant in all of the Plaza, if not the entire CITY! Adjacent to the famous bar and lounge of the hotel, this restaurant is privately owned. With the hotel's weekend entertainment , this is a "go to" place for a bite to eat before or after a movie or theatre...however the menu is mysteriously lacking any sumptuous entrees...perhaps the chefs can take another look at the midwest appetite for appealing dinner entrees and great appetizers? We love the floor to ceiling glass walls overlooking the iconic Plaza...we want to come again but we need a tastier, spicer, more authentic "plaza" menu...thanks.
This was the my first time at American Slang. It was Friday of course which meant date night and restaurant week. The service and food were top class. We both had the salmon for dinner and split a bottle of wine. If you're looking for a romantic low-key dinner date this is the place to go.
Visited here during KC Restaurant Week and was disappointed with the food. Looks great, sounds great, but leaves a lot to be desired. Will not return.
Absolutely loved this gem of a restaurant! Not very busy when I visited so that may impact my experience. Food was amazing. Service was terrific. And restaurant week made the value unbeatable! Tasty, flavorful, YUM! We will be back.
Need to divide out the dining area. Tied to bar. Not very French. Need to step it up. Has potential.
My daughter and I came in on a Sunday at 4:00 for afternoon tea and I had very mixed feelings. The good: Attentive service and beautiful view of the plaza lights. The not so good: All of the food for our tea had clearly been made early that morning or the night before and was very cold and pretty dried out. For the finger sandwiches we had smoked salmon, cucumber and egg sandwiches...all open face and very dry. The salmon one was the only one with any flavor whatsoever. The other two had virtually no flavor at all. The scones and banana bread were okay but pretty dry and cold. There were also one petit four and one chocolate each...both were tiny. We paid just over $31 with tax but left hungry. I honestly would love to go again because the atmosphere and view are so stunning and the service was actually good. But the food quality was just really not that great. If the food were better I would come back in a heartbeat. For $31 I expect much better.
Nice place for afternoon tea. Take a table by the window and watch the Plaza lights come on.
It was in a hotel. That was a big downside to the restaurant experience.
LOVED. The ambiance, decor, and 🥂!!!
Brought my son here for dinner before an evening at the ballet. He loved it, and I loved the bouillabaisse!!! Nice surprise for a hotel restaurant - and stunning views of the Plaza lights!
Unimpressive flavor for a price that boasts otherwise. Didn’t have carry-out containers for soup, so was given a coffee cup. It worked, but I expected more from a restaurant whose average entree price is near $30.
The restaurant didn't have our reservation made through Open Table. It wasn't a problem because there was no one there but it shows a lack of coordination somewhere. The food was only okay. The Mediterranean Vegetable sandwich had a poor texture and was flavorless. Others seemed to have fared better.
Was in the hotel so the bar was loud
Crab cake was good, but expected more
Flatbread was good
Pasta was good but butternut squash was not cooked through all the way
Fish and chips were yummy
Drinks were good
Waiter was outstanding.
Nice place to hang out, but would go somewhere else for a quiet date.
Food and service was very good! Ambiance was unexpected for a date night. Tables were small and chairs were casual metal parlor chairs. Ambiance was more fit for a quaint breakfast cafe.
Our third or fourth experience with American Slang and none have been disappointing. Excellent value for Sunday brunch; everyone raved about their meals – classic eggs Benedict, crabcake Benedict.
The restaurant is in the international continental hotel. The food was good service was good it did tend to be a little pricey. We had a simple breakfast and the bill was $56.
Loud and not a good value for the price.
We were a bit perplexed that the OpenTable app did not mentioned the restaurant is located in the InterContinental Hotel. The app did mentioned free valet. However, when we arrived, the valet was nowhere in site. The restaurant vibe was great -- loved the decorative accents, finishes, and view of The Plaza. Wait staff was friendly but not very communicative. I think we were the only people (there were 4 of us) in the restaurant at the time and we waited quite a bit for our food to arrive -- during which time, the waitress did not stop by our table. When the food arrived, the mushrooms were the BEST we've ever had. My yellowfin was a bit tasteless. The burger, chicken, and salads the others at my table had were all good. Think we were expecting more WOW factor from a restaurant located in the InterContinental. Not sure that we will be back.
Food was mediocre. Very nice decor. Food was fine for casual meal but definitely wouldn’t reccomend for a special occasion. The restaurant description mention d the word “foodie” which to me isn’t a term that should be thrown around lightly! I definitely wouldn’t put this food on a foodie level...it’s upscale bar food/sandwiches/apps. Entrees were lacking.
Our server was great but the hostess seemed out of it - we waited for her to acknowledge while she looked out the windows
Really nice setting and the food was good. We saw our waiter twice, to take our order and to drop the bill off. Service was horrible!
Pretty lame from start to finish. The atmosphere was boring and the food was just okay. Sorry, but I was expecting more.
Over priced. Better options near by.
The decor, view, and atmosphere were AMAZING. I had high expectations the moment I walked in. We were one of three tables that were there for brunch. Our drinks and food took much longer than anticipated - especially since they were not busy. When our food finally came out, our "over easy" eggs were cooked way too long and our medium rare steak wasn't even pink. The breakfast potatoes were tasty, and the fruit was fresh. But, I'd have to say those were the only two things I enjoyed about the whole brunch. There were 10 of us total, and not one person said they enjoyed their food. For the cost of brunch (without alcohol) I was expecting to be much more satisfied. We will probably not come back.
Completely underwhelmed, food was ok, service was ok, ambiance was poor, overall experience: boring and overpriced. Felt like a school cafeteria setting. Will not go back, will not recommend.
Delicious breakfast. Croque Madame was open faced and done just right topped with arugula and a very light dressing. Wife had a veggie omelet that was equally fantastic. Hot coffee, beautiful view, couldn't ask for a better post anniversary breakfast!
There was a limited bloody mary bar which could have had several more items to improve it. Pricey lunch but yummy.
When i booked it, i did not realize it was in a hotel, but it didn't matter. we had a wonderful breakfast with great service. I think the hotel location has the price points a bit up, but still worth a stop if you are in KC!
We had brunch and it was fabulous. The food was delicious and it is a lovely hotel and restaurant. Service was excellent. Coffee served in a large cup and was yummy.
My siblings and I took our mother there for Mother’s Day! It was our first time and we all had a great time and really enjoyed the food and experience!
Great atmosphere. There were staff members all over the place but it was fifteen to 20 minutes between visits to our table. Our food took 30 minutes (except the mother on mother's day, whose food took another 10 before she even got her plate). Crab cakes were burnt, Bernaise tasted like it was out of a jar. The menu looks great but real poor effort on these two items. Omelette and french toast were great however.
The service was bad. It was Mother's day brunch should have had better servers for such an important day.
The view and space are lovely, especially out on the patio when the weather allows, and the food was definitely unique and enjoyable. We ordered lobster pot pie and a pork dish with a mustard and pickled blueberry sauce. Both were very good and generous servings, though slightly under seasoned and over priced. The most unfortunate part of the experience was the service. I found them to be quite disorganized, with multiple servers stopping by our table to take orders when another had just left with our info. I think you can find comparable food with better service at other Plaza restaurants, but for drinks and a view, I would definitely recommend.
Really like this place have been there several times. Really like the view of the Plaza and great live music on Friday.
As French restaurants are concerned, there are at least 2 other restaurants in Kansas City I would recommend over this one. There was nothing wrong with the food or the service. Both were good. But I'm not sure why they think they are a French restaurant.
I didn't see anywhere on Open Table where it says this restaurant is in the InterContinental Hotel (it is). It would have made it much easier to find. I ended up calling them to find this out.
This was a rather casual restaurant. We didn't see the main entrance and walked in through the bar area, which is part of the restaurant. The coffee shop is also part of the restaurant. It does have a nice view of the Plaza if you're seated by the window. As long as you walk in knowing that, you'll probably be satisfied.
Adam was wonderful and the food was amazing. The staff was fantastic as always! Cant wait to return!
American Slang is always an amazing culinary experience.
an afternoon lunch with a friend, atmosphere was delightful with a wonderful view; a very sunny day; our waiter was extremely accommodating and very tuned into our needs. our meals were delicious ...we ordered salmon and chicken, both were cooked to perfection...and as a first timer, i am intrigued into returning for an encore to taste some of the other menu items!!!!!!!!!!!!
