The steaks and lamb chops were excellent. The general manager came by and was great; Anna (our server) was more than outstanding! The only real short fall was with the wine sommelier. We brought on a couple of bottles of wine that were not on their wine list. The wines we brought had real sentimental meaning to the person’s birthday we were celebrating. The sommelier hardly spoke, did not listen and had very dark demeanor about him. Maybe an off night, who knows? Overall we really enjoyed the food, the service and fun sans the wine sommelier.

The prime rib was excellent! The service side needs a lot of work. Everything we ordered, we needed to follow-up to get our drinks & food. Sent back 2 items since they weren't hot when came to the table. If you have plenty of time getting your meal, try it out!

We have been to Plaza III many times and have generally been disappointed in food and the service. The new Metcalf location is great, nice inside but feel they lack in consistency. Saturday
Night’s meal was good and Tony gave us excellent service. Value for price may be a drawback for a lot of people.

The food was good. The service was slow. It took nearly an hour to get lunch: salad\soup and my guest got soup and sandwich. I had to get up twice from our table to ask the hostess for our waiter. (The waiter was very nice ) It was not even busy. Very disappointed in the service!

First time at the new location. The food and service was just as good as ever. The new location is bigger, but if I’m going to spend that kind of money on a dinner out, I expect to have a comfortable accommodation with at least some sense of privacy. This location offers none of that...a large dining room with 4 people stuffed into a smaller than average booth....all of the seating is these under-sized booths.

The first steak they brought me was full of gristle and I couldn’t even cut it. I sent it back and they replaced it right away with a much better steak. They were very apologetic and were very understanding. I would go back.

Terrible steaks for the money. For a steakhouse they need to revisit who they get their meat from. Wow such a disappointment. Embarrassed during a business dinner

Service started out great and then waiting for entrée it slowed to a crawl. They brought us the soufflé before our meal because it was done and they did not know that our entrée was not out. This threw them off so much that they finally brought my daughter the soufflé but did not offer my wife or I dessert. It was all just timing and screwed up service. The food, ambiance, etc. was good.

Rainbow trout was tasteless and had too much butter even with asking for the sauce on the side. Side dishes were greasy, salads had way too much dressing.

We feel the overall experience was quite unsatisfactory. The portions were extremely skimpy for the price they charged, the presentation was poor, and it certainly did not live up to the reputation that this restaurant has when on the Plaza in KC. I suggest they change their name.

It was lovely. There were 5 woman, 4 were celebrating birthdays And they comped 4 desserts. The service and food did not disappoint. The only thing I would say is that sadly we were one of 2 parties there, but it was 2:00, but there were long lags in service. Our server couldn’t have been more accommodating when he did come by.

We enjoyed a lovely brunch with our Daughter and her family this past Sunday. We all liked our food, and we are making plans to return in the very near future. The service that we received was also outstanding. The young lady that took care of us really helped to make our dining experience a special event.

We had a lovely time at Plaza lll. We visited on a Friday night and had wonderful food and wonderful service. I love their menu. So many choices and wonderful options. Our steaks were fabulous and the lobster was juicy and delicious. So many restaurants over cook fish. We judge a lot of places based on their Martinis and Plaza lll nailed this one. Our server’s name was Marcus and he was the hi light of the eve. He only works the weekends and he is very good at what he does. Made our evening that much more enjoyable. I am not particularly fond of alacarte restaurants but this one might just be worth it.

Had never been to Plaza III for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. Both food and service as good as dinner. My guest wanted an omelet that wasn't a menu item and was accommodated without any problem at all. Nice and quiet for conversation and definitely not rushed. Couldn't be happier.

The service at Plaza III is so great. Servers and hostess and managers are all attentive. Food is great. I went there specifically because my elderly mother is hard of hearing and noisy places are difficult for her. I’m kind of confused as to why they’ve relocated to this trashy strip mall but once you go in the door it’s just lovely, just like it was on the Plaza. Great experience.

I love Plaza III. I have gone there for 30 years and I really miss the plaza location. This was our first visit to the new location.

Th food and drinks were top notch (as always) and I think the steak is the best in Kansas City. The service at our table was excellent. Brittany was great.

The bar is an attractive area but not as cozy as the old location. There are too many large screen TVs in the bar and it takes away from the ambiance. The main dining room is nice, but again not as unique as the number of rooms in the plaza location.

The only complaint I have is that the service in the bar was very slow and when you consider the lack of people in the bar one has to wonder why. It took 10 minutes to get a drink

All in all I will return. It's our traditional place to go to celebrate.
