Wow.. this was an amazing experience from start to finish. I went for my birthday with my family and no one had anything that we haven't been raving about since. From the bread they brought us to dessert, everything about the Savoy was exceptional.

Thanks for providing the feedback, Anthony! Glad you enjoyed the food and service.

Although not an inexpensive restaurant, The Savoy is definitely great for special occasions. My husband and I had a drink at the bar, which has a nice selection of craft cocktails, prepared in an elegant style. The dinner menu was unusual and inventive. We both enjoyed our choices but agreed that the chocolate dessert was most impressive and delicious. The cotton candy at the end was an unexpected surprise.

Overall a nice experience. Lobster needs to go back on the menu. Don't know who decided on the art that was on display but it was limp. Dark and depressing for the most part. "Murder Dollhouse" set the mood, and it was not a pleasant one. Pretty sick bunch of artists. If I recommend it to friends I will suggest they skip the art display.

Greetings, Davidg! We are happy to see that overall you had a nice experience. The piece to which you refer recreates the horror made famous by Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood" and the artist's intent is to show how public response to such tragedies has transformed with the expansion of mass media. The piece is part of the rotating exhibit and we sincerely hope you will find one more to your liking during your next visit! Thank you for your honest feedback and we hope to see you again!

The Savoy is now serving only in their much beloved heavy dark wood and stained glass historic dining room. I have eaten there twice for lunch in the last two weeks and the food was outstanding both times. I loved the open-faced BLT special, the egg tartine and the unusual and delicious chicken noodle soup. In addition, I got to sample friends' charred broccoli salad and pasta verde, both interesting and delicious. I would definitely go again and soon! The 21C Hotel's art exhibit is a big bonus.

Let me say we have recently been to the 21c in Bentonville and had a great experience. We enjoy the concept of restaurant/hotel with art and were looking forward to this one in our home town. As past patrons of The Savoy which we LOVED, we were happy to see they kept as much of the historic interior of the restaurant as they did. It has so many memories. That is about where the nostalgia left off. The bartenders are not friendly and kinda snooty. The drinks are unique and fun but remarkably small for the price. The food was very disappointing - we travel extensively in the US and in Europe and this is the first time I was unable to eat my meal. It was SO salty!! I understand the brining thing but this was just overboard. They did offer to replace my choice with something else, but then I would be eating a half an hour after my husband, so I passed. They did take it off the bill and gave us a free dessert (which we also did not like). Unfortunate! So, on to the artwork. If my arteries were slamming shut from the salt intake, they were opened back up by the shocking mass murder display in the first room....Not one of our better experiences.

The food was amazing. Every dish from appetizer to side to cocktails was a study in balance among contrasting elements: salty/sweet/bitter, soft/firm/crunchy, etc. I recommend that you get an interesting cocktail - we got a martinez in a classic style and as a modern interpretation. The staff was attentive and helpful. The ambiance is more like a pub than a fine dining establishment, but the food is not your typical pub food (though you can get a burger). Prices aren't cheap, but within the window I would expect for food of this quality.

Since we stayed at the hotel, we also had breakfast at the Savoy, and it also did not disappoint.

The service, food, and cocktails were impeccable. I really enjoyed the amuse bouche, great flavors there. Tia in the bakery made a special chocolate birthday card and drew a kitty on the dessert plate for the birthday gal.

We took advantage of the Hamilton pretheater dinner menu. 3 courses and complimentary valet for $42. Hard to beat. The service was a bit slow to start off, but picked up. The manager checked in on us throughout the meal. We sat in a booth which was more private and nice for a date night. Had we been at a table, the ambience may have been lacking. The food was definitely the star of the show! A surprise amuse Bouche, then A gazpacho crudo to start had us wanting more. Perfect for summer. Main course included halibut with vegetables in a nice broth and prime rib. Just the right amount and delicious. We finished by splitting the chocolate dessert. Overall, I would definitely go back. Servers need some fine tuning for a restaurant of this level

Our son lives in Kansas City, and we were in town for Father's Day weekend. We always stay at 21c and usually like to have dinner at The Savoy while we're there. Note that the hotel has moved The Savoy from its previous space near the lobby to the Bar (which was originally the Savoy Grill). I like the restaurant in the Bar much better, and am happy to see that the hotel has returned that space "to its roots." The space in which The Savoy was previously located is being redesigned as an event space.

Always great food and great service, and this visit was no exception. Excellent cocktails. My husband and son ordered the Slow Roasted Prime Rib (their favorite), and I ordered the Great Lakes Walleye Fish. Everyone's entrees were superb, the service was fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Highly recommended!

We actually ate at The Savoy for brunch and dinner in one day! We had a lovely experience and everything was very good. My only comment is that you need to consider keeping some gluten-free bread/bun options on hand. I'm not celiac but I become very unwell when I eat wheat. That is becoming so common now that having some options for us is much appreciated!

it was a thrill to see the historic Savoy back in action and again serving some of the best food in Kansas City. They even had my favorite - the walleye - back on the menu. I first went to the Savoy when I first moved to KC in '79, and truthfully, I thought it was forever dead once 21C hotels took it over. I figured they would make it all modern and hip. Instead, they kept it historic . . . and hip. Many people new to the old Savoy ambiance likely will find it dark and loud. The tile floors acoustically make it seem so. But it is great. Resurrected in wonderful form.
