Located inside the 21c Museum Hotel, the menu of The Savoy is a Midwest viewpoint of Chef Joe West’s story of growing up in Kansas City. No longer the old Savoy, this building once closed for 5 years was restored in 2018. It takes place in the space that has occupied 9th and Central since 1903. Now, in a more welcoming setting for all people of different paths, Joe brings his Japanese background and personal take on Midwest culture that has evolved in Kansas City. Elevating Midwest ingredients with his experience and travels from around the world, he showcases the ethnic melting pot that you find in today's Kansas City. The food, genuinely from the heart is beautifully paired with a unique wine list and an inspiring cocktail program. This whimsical, thought-provoking take on Midwest self-care combined with the undeniable graciousness of Kansas City hospitality pairs magically with the restored Savoy at 21c.

Love everything about Savoy21 but a bit pricey for small plates. $200 for two but we did buy the kitchen drinks for $9 and the hubs had a $30 old fashion

Savoy took good care to follow safety protocols during COVID. A QR code was provided for reading the menu and hotel did temperature checks at the door. I brought my 13 and 14 year old to experience a nice meal and they were excited to try new foods. When the amuse-bouché came the kids looked puzzled and quickly googled it. Dinner was prompt and despite a small menu they had choices for everyone. I enjoyed the DelMonica it was well seasoned and cooked to my request. My husband got the prime rib which was served with the best horseradish I’ve ever eaten. It was creamy, smooth with just a mild punch. Our server was attentive and had fun knowledge of the building’s history.

Take time to view the art in the gallery. They host some very interesting multimedia pieces.

Hidden Gem

What a find. We stopped by for a cocktail and appetizers. Upon arrival we viewed the menu posted on the outside of the building. Nothing looked that great and actually thought about leaving. But fortunately we went inside.
We shared the oysters, they were ok, small and $3 each, too much, we had the bacon wrapped cherry peppers, very good. we had the crispy fried lumpia. Never heard of it before but I would order again it was very good.
Then came the cheeseburger made from aged steak. It was out of this world. I wish I had not shared it with my wife.
We will be going back for the food and the service.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in KC. It was exceptional, especially for the current climate and worries about health and safety. We dined at the private table on a Monday night and did the chef's tasting menu. Food was as stellar; unique and memorable and representative of Joe West's playful perspective as a chef. I highly recommend this experience.

My wife and I stayed with 21C KC for our 5th anniversary. We decided to try the The Savoy that night instead of going out. It was everything we wanted and then some. The Amuse-Bouche was next level and wonderful compliment of the kitchen. The service was EXCELLENT. Our server gave us the kind of attention and focus that Covid-19 rarely allows at dinner time. His suggestion of the Old Fashioned was taken as boring at first and ended up being the best I have ever had (and I’ve had a few). I can’t spoil this one for you, but just trust me (and him!). I have a gluten intolerance and they were exceptional in helping me navigate the menu and remain safe. My meal was the KC strip but with a wonderful spicy twist. I could go on and on, but everything was great! Eat at Savoy whenever you are in KC!

My wife and I ate there for our 16 year wedding anniversary. We ate at The Savoy on our wedding night so we wanted to revisit to see the updates. The food was some of the best we have ever had. We ate the sweet and sour carrots, chicken wings, crab rangoon, prime rib and cheeseburger. All of the food was perfectly seasoned. The prices were reasonable so we felt like trying several dishes. Some shrimp ceviche was brought to us and it was a perfect bite. So many unique flavors and textures. We will be returning and recommending The Savoy to others.

Seemed like no one really knew what was going on. First words out of our waitresses mouth were can I get you anything from the bar? We were not even sure she was our waitress. Then we had to wait at least 20 min to order an appetizer despite trying to order it when we ordered the drinks- since we had already been sitting a while before our drink order. Another big annoyance was there were not many wines available by the glass, and not one of the wines was one we recognized. The staff seemed out of touch when we asked why this was. They seemed almost annoyed and said the wine list had just changed so they doubted it would change again for several months. I am from Oklahoma City and our 21-c restaurant - Mary Eddies- is wonderful on all levels! I was visiting family in Kansas City and was excited to bring them. They won’t be returning or bringing others,as I know they would have had the experience been better.
