It's all about what you order. I ordered the shrimp & grits (with pork). Having had this dish several times in different cities, I have something to compare it to. I found the sweetness of the "juice" overpowering and just the wrong flavor for this dish. I have never had this dish with pork added so I am sure it was the sugar in the pork portion of the dish that ruined it. You could not taste any other flavors than the sweetness that was overpowering...no cheese or shrimp. Another person order chicken and they said it was good but nothing to write home about. The person who had chicken salad did not comment on their meal. I have eaten a salad at the Leawood location and it was good.
I enjoyed much of the experience of Rye, I will return in the future to try many other of the options on the menu.
This was my second visit and overall it was ok. I went for brunch again and our food took an excessively long time to come out. Our server though pleasant seemed to be super busy. We didn’t receive any updates as to why the food was delayed etc. After the wait my steak was severely over done. I had to send it back. It was promptly corrected though. Still an awesome place.
We were seated promptly. Our server did a great job, she was attentive and friendly. The food arrived in a timely manner and the pork chops were AMAZING!!! Also do not skip the pie. I had the banana creme and my girlfriend had the strawberry rhubarb, both were absolutely euphoric. Rye is now one of my favorite places in KC to eat.
A great brunch/lunch menu made this a great place to bring my somewhat picky granddaughters. One devoured her pulled pork sandwich and enjoyed her mocha. The other found that her buttermilk pancake was not something she loved... and my taste of it indicated it was a little dense but tasted good. Her side of four sausage links was excellent and she gulped down her fresh squeezed orange juice. My spicy chicken sandwich touted by the server was neither spicy nor crispy. I wish I had the lobster roll which sounded great. But overall the menu, food and service were great and the whole restaurant is approachable and relaxed. We will definitely be back.
We went for brunch. Service was wonderful, a little slow, but that is to be expected with brunch. Had the Rye Breakfast. Eggs were very salty, but everything else was wonderful.
The dining experience was fine, but not exceptional. I think dinners need to come with vegetables, not pickled cucumbers. I was served mashed potatoes and then they were taken away because the waiter had made a mistake. Ordering veggies as sides would have really run up our bill, but I should have done so as I was not happy with just chicken. The four of us ate for $155 without tip, and that seems excessive for a dinner that we could have had at Popeyes for much less money. Also, I had read the menu on line and had hoped for one of the special drinks. Alas, the waiter told me several things on line were not available on the Plaza.
Always great food and drink, great service in a convivial Plaza location.
Never disappointed at Rye!
Handsome dining room, attentive and accommodating service, remarkably muted noise level for an open space, and delicious food.
Sunday brunch at Rye is yummy!! Especially love the crispy hashbrowns.
Came for Sunday Brunch, food, service and atmosphere were great!
It was the best rainbow trout I’ve ever had. Would like to have the green beans cooked longer; they were like raw. The fried chicken and soft shell crab were also favorites at our tsble.
Food was delicious and prepared as desired. Restaurant and restrooms were clean and orderly. Waitress was very knowledgeable about menu. Other members of wait staff who weren't assigned to our table were helpful with drinks, clearing plates, etc.
Enjoyed this restaurant very much, everything was good.
Had a fun business dinner. Great food and atmosphere!
Sunday steak special was great. Steak was high quality—as good as Capital Grill. Will be back and will bring others.
Delicious sweet and savory brunch options
Our server Jessi was excellent! We went for Sunday brunch and the atmosphere, food and staff were terrific. I added a person last minute and called the hostess was pleasant about it. Luckily she was able to accommodate our reservation. We will be going back soon.
Great place for a meal. Food is great, Service is great, Bartender knows what to do. Great atmosphere and classic rock and roll is playing in the background. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE. One of the best locations in the city. TOP NOTCH
Rye was so good and the ambiance was modern and cute. We got a cinnamon roll to share to start, and it was delicious! The mimosas were great, eggs Benedict and hash browns were really great too.
Convenient location on the KC Plaza with lots of room and inviting atmosphere. Casual breakfast/lunch - the best!
only one person was offered a drink at my table (3 people table). No big deal because I was drinking water anyway, but I felt neglected. I think the waiter later realized and offer drinks . Overall I like your restaurant. Will go back again
We had Sunday brunch at Rye-Plaza, and it was unbelievable. The food was phenomenal, service unparalleled, and bakery products delightful. We will return!
Great food. I think the prices are not bad but when you offer a kids menu, obviously families would like to go. So I think some items are a little pricey for catering to family friendly opportunities. We love the food though it’s amazing and the atmosphere is so wonderful
Great place to eat. Cinnamon roll was awesome.
Our server Claire was fantastic! The food was delicious and served hot. We also appreciated our table being ready on time. Wins all around!
Our first time there and all was fantastic, from outstanding service, food and wonderful dessert.
Amazing! The dessert was phenomenal! I highly recommend the Pot De Creme. We can't wait to come back.
It wouldn’t be the first, second, or third place I would recommend to eat, but the food isn’t horrible. There are so many other good restaurants on the Plaza to try instead.
Great Food and Great service
Great place to meet for brunch!! Check out their pastry counter yum!
Orders took over an hout to get to table for 11:30 lunch
We have the deviled eggs appetizer they were very good. My partner ordered the ribs and sauce she said they were excellent. I had the shrimp BBQ and the fries. The shrimp were a little too diluted in their sauce for me and the fries were okay the tea and my friends drink were both good. I would recommend the chicken and the ribs both are excellent
I went for the fried chicken, which was delicious. The mashed potatoes were more of the "French" style (pommes puree) and actually, I prefer fluffier mashed potatoes with gravy. They we delicious none-the-less but a bit dense/heavy. Rye's lemon meringue pie is extraordinary.
This was our first visit and I can’t wait to return!
Unfortunately I have to give this outing a 3-star. The biggest issue was with the service from the management. Two steaks that were ordered Medium Plus came out Well Done. When this was brought to the attention of the waitress, she apologized and took the steaks back. The manager then came over, apologized and looked right at my wife and asked if she wanted a drink (she accepted) which everyone thought was due to the steaks being wrong. The manager never looked at anyone else or asked anyone else if they wanted anything. The steaks finally came out when everyone else was finished with their meals - the steaks were still almost well done but no one wanted to wait another 15-20 minutes for them to try again. When the check arrived, the manager had charged us for the drink that he offered and didn't bother to discount any of the steaks even though they were wrong and eventually came out when everyone else was finished. We brought this to the manager's attention and he said he didn't take anything off. We told him that we didn't feel that was right given the way he approached the drink and how late the 2nd steaks came out. He did agree to comp the drink and give a reduction for the steaks. When you think of outstanding customer service, you think that these things (free drink if offered, reduction on meal) should have been automatic without having to bring it up to the manager. Unfortunately, it came off to our whole party that the manager was more worried about the bottom line than the satisfaction of the customer.
Fried Chicken, Lemon Merangue Pie and our server Jasmine were the highlights of our visit.
The lights went out on the Plaza during dinner but our food arrived in time. Jasmine was very pleasant and attentive. Candles on the table were a plus.
We were there on Monday evening, the 4th of March. Our waitress was especially awesome! The food and drinks were outstanding!
My first experience at Rye on the Plaza was outstanding. We were seated for brunch right away. The decor and ambiance is lovely. Our waitress was one of the best I have had in Kansas City. She was attentive and friendly, and made substitutes without hesitating.
The food and drinks were incredible. We ordered a cinnamon roll to share (they are huge) and mimosas that came in a cute cocktail glass. I highly recommend both the burnt end hash and eggs Benedict. Prices are very reasonable for brunch items. I will definitely be back for happy hour and dinner!
