This is my first restaurant review. I felt it necessary after what we experienced last night. We were seated at 7:45, table for 4, at the Savoy. I was with my wife, and parents. After we sat down, we waited about 10 minutes for a first interaction with our server. He took our drink order, and vanished. Another 10-15 minutes elapsed, without even water being poured. Prior to our server returning, we were approached by the restaurant manager, wearing a blue, used car-salesman’s suit, and reeking of alcohol. This was the interaction that occurred:

Manager: “....are you....y’all good? You all okay..?”
Us: “Yeah, just having a good night. Yourself?”
Manager: “Yeah, are y’all going to order food, or what?”
Us: “That’s the plan. We haven’t even gotten drinks yet..”
Manager: “Yeah, well if you’re going to order food, you need to order. So, I’ll take your order now.”
Us: “No thanks. We’ll wait for our server.”

He continued to stand at the table and stare at us for about 15 more seconds, to the point where I felt an altercation might occur. He then walked away. Of note, he dropped a tables bottle of alcohol, about 15 minutes later. Smashed all over the restaurant floor. I have never witnessed someone more inappropriate in a restaurant setting.

Our drinks finally arrived. We ordered food. Server never returned. Food finally arrived. Quality of food was not great, but not awful. I would give it 3 stars. Menu seems poorly curated, however. We finished our meal and waited..and waited..and waited. When our server returned, I inquired about the horrible service. He chuckled and stated the manager was having a rough night from partying with friends. The server promised us a “gift” to make up for the poor experience.

The gift itself took about 15 minutes to arrive. My parents leaving due to the hour, before it did. The “gift” was 4 glasses of whiskey. I found that an incredibly odd choice. No dessert? No break on our tab? Not an apology? Just whiskey. Sums this place up.

Such a disappointment in atmosphere and food, especially given Savoy’s deep history in KC. Meal inedible. Art disgusting. Art included murder scene in dollhouse and child molestation. Do NOT recommend. Do not waste your evening or money. Atrocious and appalled the historic Savoy would be presented in such a dark manner.

The service was outstanding. The staff were very friendly and our waiter very very attentive. The trout was excellent and pork as well. A side starch with the pork would have been nice. We enjoyed the caramelized cauliflower appetizer. The plum sorbet on top of the coconut rice pudding was terrific, but I would have preferred a bit more sweetness to the pudding and the rice cooked to a softer texture. It was a bit noisy but not muc to be done about that in this type of venue.

Went to the Savoy to celebrate my wife's birthday with drinks and appetizers, followed by a self-guided tour of the 21C galleries. The restaurant retains the feel and ambiance of the "old Savoy". The drinks were delicious, as were the appetizers, and our server, Ty, was amazing. He could answer any of our questions with great, helpful and descriptive responses, and his recommendations were spot-on (after having only worked there for two weeks at the time of our visit).
It was a great experience. Don't miss it!

Everything was wonderful. It was our anniversary (which I guess they knew from our reservation), after seating us they brought I two glasses of champagne. The room was quite noisy, but they offered us a booth that was quieter. Very limited menu, but ideal choices for us. We had two appetizers and shared roast beef that was cooked to perfection and very ample for the two of us. A great evening, start to finis.

Greeted by an energetic and happy team in a warm and unique room. The service was informative and cheerful while the food was delicious and creative. We ordered several dishes and shared so we could taste everything. So good! Cocktails are beautifully made. Perfect for everyday dining or special occasions.

Excellent menu choices with a good starter mix. Food was beautifully presented and done to perfection. The scallops were perfect. Excellent wine choices for the meals with a refreshing lightly sweet chardonnay and a smooth pino noir. Historic atmosphere with knowledgeable staff. Can't wait to go back to try something new!

I have always struggled finding good places for a date night. This was far and beyond the best one we've been on. The food was great, the ambiance was incredible, the drinks were beyond what is offered downtown. 10/10 would recommend for an upscale dinner.

Waitress was sweaty, disheveled, anxious, and inattentive. Our drinks were usually empty, and she made no attempt to communicate clearly or at least a volume that could be heard. We had to ask twice for condiments and a wine list. Food was underwhelming.

When the hostess called to confirm our reservation, she asked if anyone in our party had any dietary restrictions, which was thoughtful, but our waitress was clearly annoyed at having to accommodate for gluten-free options: specifically, she emphasized that the gluten-free items would not be cooked separately. It seemed as if she was trying to steer us away from any gluten-free options.

Love the vibe. We decided to go the first night of the D.I.S.H. Dining in support of hospitality. (where you pick your plate made by a local artist and 100% of the proceeds go to The One Fair Wage Emergency Fund for all the hospitality workers in the area who hit hard times during COVID) plus 10% of your food costs as well. LOVE SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY.

We ordered:
-BLUE CRAB BEIGNET so delicious and airy served with a salsa verde butter. To be honest I didn’t need the butter.
-BACON WRAPPED CHERRY PEPPERS filled with an herb cream cheese. Let me just say. You will slide out of your seat speechless with all the flavors of amazement that hit your palette from this little guy. You’ll want to savor every bite. Oh so perfect...
-SMASH BURGER it was delicious the bun came out gorgeous with a little toasted color, so good hands down. And the fries every single one was made with the perfect crisp outside and a little soft inside and lightly seasoned. (You might ask for more ketchup if you dip your fries, because they don’t bring out much)

Side note I ordered the half burger (1 patty) my BF ordered the full (2 patties +bacon) he was in heaven over on his side of the booth. I’m pretty sure his eyes rolled back in his head a few times.

It was a great evening to get out have some cocktails unwind supper the community and eat till our bellies were content.

We will be back for the prime rib but that’s only available on the weekends.

You won’t be disappointed! Plus if you enjoy art you should go a couple min early and check out the lobby. They have some really cool exhibits.

Drink recommendations were great choices the “margarita flavored one” was our favorite. Went to celebrate the new mommy card! Gurls night of course. She got the scallops which were good. I wanted the beef but it’s made with thyme and I’m allergic so I settled for the chicken with sprouts. Great choice very tender and juicy! Service was good. Ambiance was well lit not too dark but building is a bit odd if you like Van Gogh type stuff...overall I would prob not eat here again. But I would recommend it for a date night, grab a drink kind of experience.
