Amazing place! If in KC, this is a must try place for a nice high end meal with a modern art atmosphere. More please!
Loved the ambiance will be back. Service were prompt. Very friendly staff.
Wonderful experience to dine again in the old Savoy Grill-- a KC classic. We went at 9:30a for Easter brunch, ended up ordering off the breakfast menu (there wasn't much difference between the two menus). For as few customers as there were, service was somewhat scattered, but the staff was incredibly nice and sweet. Food was excellent, we ordered Croque Madame and Bananas Foster french toast. Drinks were solid. Although we didn't watch them, the TV's in the bar were awful, need to upgrade their cable connection. All in all, for locals, and those of you who remember the old Savoy Grill-- a visit to the new Savoy is a must.
Jim, Thank you so much for giving us your review! I'm incredibly pleased that you found the food and drink to your liking and the service accommodating. Croque Madame is a staple dish on our daily breakfast menu! I see that your experience was negatively affected by our television, cable service. I'd love to know more should you have the time to reach out to me directly. Our goal is to provide a five star experience every time you come in! Best, Damon Bailey - Manager 816.443.4284
I was glad to see they left the bar area of the Savoy in its original state. The salad I had was wonderful and it was fun to walk around the hotel and museum afterwards. Want to try brunch and dinner there next!
Kirin, Thank you so much for stopping and trying our lunch menu! Our chef team will be happy to know that you enjoyed your salad! I can't wait for you to try our dinner menu, I know you will be blown away. Also should you be free on May 1st, you might enjoy coming to our wine dinner. We're bringing in winemaker Andrew Jones of Field Recordings for a special 6-course menu. If you'd like to buy tickets for that or have any other needs, please contact me. Best wishes, Damon Bailey - Manager
Our server, Ashley was exceptional. She made our wonderful experience even better!!!
Brandy, Thank you so much for this review! I'm thrilled that Ashley gave you exceptional service. She and the rest of our service team will enjoy reading this as an acknowledgment of their training and hard work. Feel free to request her as your server before your next visit but I'm also certain any of our teammates will be just as accomodating. If there's anything else we can do please don't hesitate to ask. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Or second visit was as good as the first. Service was excellent and the new (to us) menu had something for everyone.
For those who thought they would experience the original Savoy, you will be disappointed. It is nothing like it...not a lobster on the menu. Despite reservations, the staff was confused as to where to seat us in 1/2 empty restaurant. Craft cocktails were great. Penguin plastic mascots were weird. Menu eclectic and over priced. Nice place for something different but for frequent dinning
Mr. Ross, Thank you for your honesty! I'm happy to hear that you liked your drinks (we are currently up for a FEAST award), but I realize that your experience was not up to our standards. I'm sorry that we appeared unsure about where to seat you. You should expect to be lead with confidence to your table immediately upon arrival. Your feedback about the art and menu are much appreciated! Please contact me with any additional feedback about your night. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
It was much different than the former Savoy. The old Savoy was elegant, this is a modern day dining experience. Pricing is also very reasonable.
We had the Brussel Sprouts and Monkfish Newberg and Trout. Both of us were so pleased with our meal! Can't wait to go back again. I've never had trout made that way and it was melt in your mouth great!!! See you there!
DebbieG, Thanks for leaving us this great review. I'm so happy you enjoyed your meal and found the prices approachable; our chef team will certainly love the positive feedback. Our goal is to make sure you are satisfied and to convince you to return. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager P.S. We've recently replaced the Monkfish Newberg with fresh Halibut!
Great food an fun atmosphere
OTDiner, We thank you for your review. Part of the challenge we face every day is to take the elegance of the historic Savoy Grille and highlight the pieces that are fun for everyone. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again real soon. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
We were celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and wanted to be somewhere from our youth. Not only was the ambience wonderful, the staff couldn't have been nicer, serving us complimentary champagne when we were seated. We loved the food, the green pasta and the lamb ragout were truly outstanding. Thanks to the chef and the staff for a wonderful evening.
Jojo, We are excited that you loved the ambiance and service; our waitstaff will be so proud to read this. We realize that we have big shoes to fill and are forever grateful for the opportunity to try. Thanks for choosing The Savoy for such a special occasion! If you haven't already, be sure to walk through the attached museum the next time you're in and take in all the great contemporary art. Best wishes, Damon Bailey - Manager
Had always heard about the restaurant, but was initially disappointed when we were seated at a folding table. The server was unfamiliar with the menu and unable to identify specials or items she would recommend. The food was very good.
Anonymous, Thanks for taking the time to write in. While we are thrilled that your food was great, we are concerned about your review. We train our staff to be knowledgeable about 100% of the menu and be able to suggest. I'm sorry we missed this mark with you. We are now retraining to fix this. Also because of your feedback we are adding some more permanent seating. Please reach out before your next visit with any other concerns. We value your business. Sincerely, Damon Bailey
Traditional look but new age menu.
Keith, Thanks for your review. We would love to hear more about your experience!. Please reach out to our management team 816.443.4288 with any further comments or suggestions you wish to share. Again, thank you for taking the time to review our business! Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Very strange place straight out of the dark ages. Needs news dishes, brighter lights and lighter table linens. Dark walls, dim lights, all black table linens, strange music, and green penguins randomly placed.
The food was extremely disappointing. I didn't send anything back because it was cooked fine, I simply didn't like the flavor profiles.
The servers were extremely attentive and kind. For fine dining prices it leaves much to be desired.
Excellent service from a wonderful staff. Food and drinks top notch, overall great experience that was a wonderful dinner/drink date.
Chris, We are so happy that you loved your dinner; our team will be proud to know that we hit the mark with you. We train hard to be that place that perpetually calls you back for any occasion from date nights to large family or work gatherings. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely, Damon Bailey - Manager
I was pleasantly surprised and blown away with just not the ambiance, excellent service, but thrilled with the menu. Everything from the cocktails, the starters, to the main course to the Baked Alaskan was superb.
OpenTable Diner, Thanks for this very positive review! Hitting these marks re-affirms all of the hard work and training we began back in June before we opened to the public. It means so much to us to be able to blow you away! Nice choice on the Baked Alaska. Sounds like a perfect end to a memorable dinner. Can't wait to do it again! Best wishes, Damon Bailey - Manager
Lunch at the Savoy was absolutely delightful. The staff was gracious and accommodating when we showed up with two extra in our party, including a toddler. The service was excellent, every bite of our meal was delicious, and the combination of historic decor and modern artwork beautifully done.
I highly recommend the Savoy to anyone who wants a memorable dining experience.
Great atmosphere. First dined at the Savoy when we came to KC 48 years ago, Booked the 21c hotel for our anniversary and wanted to visit the renovated Savoy Grill. Still had the feel from the earlier visits, and the bar, murals and booths brought back memories.
Service was superb and we were well taken care of. Monkfish was good. Also had escargot in tortellini. Unfortunately the taste of the escargots was overwhelmed by the pasta. Would have much preferred the classic escargots in the shells with garlic butter and plenty of bread to soak up the butter.
Our daughter had spoken to the grill management so we got a special booth (the Harry Truman booth) and complimentary champagne. Waitress was outstanding and made it a wonderful experience
Overall a good dining experience enhanced by superb service.
This is an estimable old Kansas City establishment and its restoration is to be applauded. The atmosphere of the main, historic dining room however, felt like a cavernous event space. Tables were spread far apart and set with black tablecloths and plastic-appearing chairs.
What this dining room needs is appropriately spaced tables with white tablecloths and elegant, ultra-contemporary chairs. That's it. Simple fix.
Annasue, Thanks for sharing your feedback. Because of you and other reviewers we have a plan for more permanent seating in that area already underway. Please continue to check back as we evolve this landmark space. Also feel free reach out to our management team directly with any further comments, concerns, or suggestions you wish to share. Best Damon Bailey - Manager
Interesting decor. I hoped it would be better. Limited menu and just wasn’t well done. Didn’t seem to know we had reservations. Got passed off twice, and then no wait for drink order. Bathroom a long way from dining room. Food quality and execution poor
Meals were poorly imagined and cooked. Not worth the nearly $300 bill for two of us.
JC55, We appreciate you choosing us and recognize that you had a plethora of dining options available. We listen to all of our guests' feedback. After watching our chef team create this menu and execute consistently to the delight of thousands of diners, I know that "poorly imagined" is not an accurate representation. Perhaps a mistake was made? I'd love to know more. Please feel free to contact me directly via email if you have time. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
You need to bring back the white tablecloths and the chairs look like something from and office.
Wood, Thanks for your feedback. We constantly evaluate guest reviews and have added this feedback into changes that are already underway. Please feel free to reach out directly before your next visit if you have any special requests or concerns. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
The burger is the best option
OutForFood, A diner-style steakburger using dry aged beef, pressed into patties so thin that the edges crisp up, mayo, stone ground mustard and onion jam, house made bread and butter pickles, sesame seed bun. More than a handful of times I've heard, "best burger of my life" from a previously reluctant guest. I'm glad you liked it. I challenge you to make that call though after you've tried the new menu, only because there are so many great options. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Very loud. It took a long time to get our food even though they weren't very busy. The seafood was very undercooked, almost raw but we didn't have time to send it back after waiting so long. Overly priced for the environment and menu.
seafoodlvr, Thank you for coming in and for leaving a review. I'm sorry that your dish was undercooked. Often times, depending on the dish, our chef team will cook fish to medium or even medium rare. We train our staff to let you know when this is the case but its possible we missed this mark with you. It shouldn't happen and you are right to point it out. Please reach out to me directly. I want to be sure your next meal with us is absolutely perfect. Sincerely, Damon Bailey - Manager
Food was good, but menu is not very diverse. Prime rib was amazing! But I can’t eat prime rib every week and so my options are limited. Service was spot on. Oh yeah, the green penguins...
Anonymous, Thanks for coming in and leaving a review! Smoked Prime Rib is hard to beat anyday but you'll have to come back and try the new menu options. Having a very focused menu helps make sure that we execute consistently delicious and beautiful food every time. Thanks for your kind words about our service, its a point of pride for us to provide at this level. Green penguins in Bentonville, Sky Blue in KC! Let me know when you're ready to come back! BIG Thanks Damon Bailey - Manager
Had lunch here - first ever visit. I agree with others that the service was fantastic. Our server had great suggestions and comments on the menu and how other diners felt about dishes. The four of us left having really enjoyed our lunch - plus we dined with one of the penguins! I’ll definitely return - I want to try the dinner menu.
Kimm, Seeing your remarks about the service is a moment of pride for us. We train relentlessly to hit those marks. I'm glad you enjoyed your meal. Thank you for coming in and for leaving a review! Btw, our dinner menu just saw an update and now features (Beef Burgundy, Trout Almandine, and Monkfish Newburg along with other classic mid- century favorites). Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help with your next visit! Sincerely, Damon Bailey - Manager
I have had both lunch and a weekend dinner here now. Excellent both times! We had two great servers, which added to our dining experience. Food was awesome - especially the steak tartare and French onion soup!
The restaurant ambiance is intimate and romantic. Not often can four people have dinner and be able to hear one another without raising voices.
Recommend to anyone.
RichardH, I'm reading your review as I have the French Onion Soup and I'm shaking my head in agreement. We are thankful to have you dining with us and appreciate your words. Keep us in mind for breakfast or brunch as well and also don't hesitate to reach out to me or the other members of our management team before your next visit! Best wishes, Damon Bailey - Manager
First time back in many years. I was concerned that the ambience would be diminished- it was still fabulous. The food was wonderful, especially the beets!
LJCJLC, Thank you so much for coming in! I'm so glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It means the world to our team to hit these marks and hear this feedback. You and I share a love for the Chilled Beets Ravigote. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us before any future visits with any requests or concerns. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Our visit to the Savoy at 21c was nostalgic, we haven't visited since it was the Savoy Grill (we live in Arkansas and seldom travel to downtown KC). Great that you preserved the barroom area, and we enjoyed sitting in the Harry Truman booth. This was part of a very great KC trip to pick up a new Cadillac at the GM Fairfax Plant.
Tom and Faye, This is what we train and practice for every day. I'm so grateful for your visit and am happy to hear it could be a truly memorable one. The next time you want to put those shiny new wheels out for a road trip, don't forget your new friends in KC who are ready to roll out the red carpet at a moment's notice. BIG thanks! Damon Bailey - Manager
Was very let down because the experience was much less than expected. It's not the Savoy you remembered.
STEVENB, Thanks so much for coming in and for leaving some feedback! I'd love to know more about what was missed if you have the time and care to chat. Please respond or reach out to me directly and maybe we can address and perhaps make some corrections. Cheers Damon Bailey - Manager
Worst experience ever; on Valentine’s Day. They had special menu; no lobster bisque, no lobster options for dinner. That’s why you go to savoy. Atmosphere no longer quiet and conservative. Now bright colored lights, insulting flooring. Just a very bad night and still spent more than I should.
KenJ, Thank you for trying The Savoy @ 21c! We appreciate you taking the time to review. I understand that you were expecting a different menu. Our goal has always been to nod to the classic menu and style of the long standing Savoy Grill while making it fun in a way only 21c can. I stand behind our chef team and a menu that is creative, fresh and executed beautifully. I invite you to come back, perhaps on a non-holiday to experience our dinner menu. Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Great meal, very good service. The historic building and modern decor are a fun pairing — but the lighting in the main dining area is horrendous. It’s distracting to the point it alters the appearance of the food (not appetizing!) as well as people’s skin and clothing.
Anonymous, Thank you for dining with us! It means the world to us that you enjoyed your time here! Consider your feedback heard and know that its being considered in improvements that are already underway. We look forward to seeing you again and providing the same quality of food, atmosphere, and especially hospitality! Best wishes, Damon Bailey - Manager
Nice to be in the old room again. Glad they decided to serve meals there.
MarvinR, Really nice to have you! YES we listened to our guest feedback and have increased seating and allowed guests to reserve the old booths. Thanks for your visit! Also just a reminder that we served Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Late Night Snacks and Brunch out of our kitchen so keep us in mind for your next outing! Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Valentine’s Evening. Surf and Turf had less than one oz. of crab with 5 oz filet. Sauce was ordinary. Salad was not flavorful. Prime Rib was better but not exceptional. Chocolate dessert was good.
BillJ, Thank you for choosing The Savoy for your celebration. I'm happy that you enjoyed dessert and encourage you to come back and try our new dinner menu. Our chef team works non-stop to ensure that the dishes that leave our kitchen are beautiful, full of flavor and of value. Its rare but occasionally we miss the mark and if that was the case on Valentine's Day then I'm truly sorry. I know if you come back you will be wowed so please don't hesitate! Sincerely Damon Bailey - Manager
The Savoy is always impressive. The atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the service is always above expectations. Always a hit and something I look forward being a treat going there.
let920, I'm so grateful for your review and your visit! Providing an enjoyable atmosphere, dishes that 'wow', and service that is in tune with your needs is what we work toward everyday and we celebrate hitting these marks! Also just in case you haven't heard, we are open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night snacks, and brunch. Please don't hesitate to reach out before your next visit if there's anything else we can do to go the extra mile. Cheers, Damon Bailey - Manager
Very enjoyable evening. Food was great. Professional service
havesomeexperience, Thank you for dining with us! Your comments reflect simply what we aim to do every time. Please don't hesitate to reach out before your next visit if there's anything else we can do to make your experience a special one! Sincerely, Damon Bailey - Manager
Went to lunch and restaurant was not busy and we were slow to be greeted and seated-seemed a little awkward. Once we were seated service was good. Menu for lunch is not impressive but the choices we made were really good. The field greens salad has awesome dressing. My wife had French dip sandwich which was awesome and I had chicken curry with rice and loved it. Wine prices are pretty high. The rest of the art galley is very interesting.
BillJanNwine, Thank you for your thoughts and for coming in for lunch! I'm happy that you enjoyed your selections and agree that the Champagne vinaigrette on the Field Greens salad is wonderful. Our goal is to greet you promptly at the table within 30 seconds and am sorry that we missed that mark. We've used this review to retrain that part of service. We'd love for you to come in for dinner sometime. Please reach out if you are interested! Best, Damon Bailey - Manager
Great food, great service! We certainly enjoyed it!
rickb, And we enjoyed you! Thanks so much for your visit and your kind words! Please shoot me a message the next time you plan on coming in so I can personally say hi. Best, Damon Bailey -Manager
The savoy grille has always been an icon in Kansas City. Had not been there in quite some time and was very saddened to learn it is now a chain restaurant with very small menu selection. Will not go back.
CharlesA, Thank you so much for your visit to Savoy @ 21c and for your review! I'd love to know more about your experience and why you say you'll not come back. Should you find the time and care to chat please feel free to reach out directly to myself or anyone on our management staff. Thanks again, Damon Bailey - Manager
Beautiful inside! My meal was delicious! I strongly recommend the chestnut soup (which I assume is a winter item only), scallops and the brussels sprouts! We were all too full for dessert which is a shame but I hope to go back for that some day! Lunch prices seemed pretty reasonable and I hear the brunch is amazing too. Everyone loved their dinner choice in my group! Oh and the bread served beforehand is delicious..and warm...with salted butter!
YES! I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit and thankful that you took the time to tell us! Please let me know when you are ready to come give this dessert menu a shot. I'd love to come by the table and say hello. Also, we have changed the soup, but not to worry, it is now French Onion featuring 4 different kinds of onions. It has already been heralded as wonderful by many. We buy our bread from IBIS a local 'micro'-bakery and I agree that its amazing! Best Damon Bailey - Manager
