OpenTable Diner (Kansas City)

Very nice experience overall. I had a business lunch, so we needed a somewhat quite place to meet. Great atmosphere, food was very good and service was wonderful. I had the bison sliders, the best bison burger I have ever had to this point.

Three of us went for Brunch on Saturday morning at 10. The restaurant was crowded (it was a lovely day and everyone was out people-watching). We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The English muffins in the Eggs Benedict were a little difficult to cut, but the dish was delicious and the potatoes were great. We'd definitely go back.

Nice place on the Plaza to meet friends. Lots of sunlight. Busy but not noisy. Good salads and eggs benedict. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Allowed us to sit and talk after dining without signaling we should leave.

Breakfast is dependable, coffee always good, allows for private conversation.

Another great brunch with friends at Classic Cup! Always enjoy going here for the Sunday Brunch. Even better when my friends order something different so I can share some of theirs and enjoy more than one of my favorite dishes!!

This was not my first time dining at Classic Cup. Usually it is wonderful. Last Saturday afternoon, it was awful! Service was bad; hot food was cold & cold drink (Mimosa) was room temperature. Food / flavor was not up to par that day either. I hope this was just an off day for them.

Not the Classic Cup I remembered. A life long KC resident we used to always pick Classic Cup for special events. It had been awhile and I was looking forward to dining outside. The hostess wasn't pleased to be there. No gracious greeting. Our server was very sweet, but clearly we were her first or second table. Did not know the menu and came back multiple times to get our order right. All that I appreciated, she did her best, but I felt a restaurant of this caliber, or one I used to know, would have better training support for their staff.

A great Country Club Plaza staple. Generally consistent service, food, and presentation. Expect a wait during peak times but other than that, fairly easy to get in.

We dined to catch up with old friends from out of town. We wanted a place to gather for some quiet conversation. On a gorgeous summer evening, the inside seating was empty, except for our table... And even the outside wan't full, to our surprise. The food we had was fine, though I had the Caesar salad, with added Salmon for a topper, and I was surprised at what seemed like an unusually small Salmon portion.
We could have had our quiet conversation, except for the SCREAMING motorcycles on the street in front of the cafe. We literally jumped in our seats when the cycles raced by. This is not the restaurant's fault, but I suspect it must impact their business. I think we will hesitate to come back when the sidewalk windows are open, due to this noise.
So, the Cup is a pleasant space, in a great location, hampered by motorcycle noise.
