Our server wasn't very friendly, and her service was slow at best. Her recommendation on a bottle of wine was completely off! I'd say our experience was well below average!

Fantastic service, atmosphere and food. Our server was fantastic, and while we were on a bit of a time crunch since we had symphony tickets, she never made us feel rushed. And she got us out well in time to get to the theatre.

I was a loyal M &S customer for years in Seattle, so I was somewhat disappointed at the oyster bar and oyster selection....well, Kansas City is not on the ocean, so maybe excusable, but not the best oyster bar. The rest of my meal was superb and the service was gracious, good pace and professional. My entree was a new species of fish...to me...but was quite tasty. Prices suggest they are very proud of their food.

Was our first time dining at the restaurant. The food was absolutely amazing. Our server could have been better at explaining the menu and giving us all options available. Just noticed other servers around us was a lot more talkative and explain anything people had questions on. But the food was so amazing will definitely be back.

I took my wife here for Valentine’s Day making a reservation was easy and done all online. They were very punctual to my reservation. The food was incredible we had the ribeye and the surf and turf which was 2 lobster tails and a filet minion. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and had awesome flavor. We got the chocolate box for desert which never disappoints. Highly recommended for a nice fancier restaurant on the plaza.

We had a lovely time for my friend's bachelorette party. The only complaint was that the staff allowed a homeless man into the restaurant who then went around to every table to asked for bus fare. This was disruptive to our evening and wasn't appropriate.

This was a first date for me and my new girlfriend. Everything about this visit was perfect. We had a 6:00 pm reservation but got there 20 minutes early and was seated immediately. Our waiter was Marvin and he was a the best. He recommended a perfect wine pairing to go with our meals, took some pictures for us to remember our first date. He is one of the best waiters I have ever encountered.

One of the two small Lobster tails was bad. It was mushy and so soft it was hard to eat. I told the server about the problem. He said he talked to the chef who agreed that the tail was was not supposed to be that way.

Lobster bisque soup wa a hit at our table.

We chose this restaurant for our 68th anniversary celebration but were very disappointed. The server was not very attentive, not checking after our food arrived to see if everything was to order. My husband's sea bass tasted "old" and my scallops were just warm. We have dined here several times - the last time was questionable. We thought that was probably a fluke. Not the case. I don't think we will be dining her for special occasions where the meal was quite expensive and the food and service inadequate.
