The menu is Southern-infused, although with a healthy dose of local beef, and every dish was very well prepared and beautifully served. The setting is comfortable, and service is excellent. We enjoyed the jazz trio playing the night we were there.

We were looking to treat ourselves to a great meal with some jazz, and were not disappointed. Located in the lovely Raphael Hotel in the Plaza District, this gem has a classic menu that is executed to perfection. Best Veal Oscar ever. Good (if pricey) wine list but reasonable and quality choices available, too. Wonderful service. The ambience was so... More

We enjoyed a family breakfast here for my wife's birthday. Great choices on food with a number of options. We had 3 small children but it worked out fine.

This should be the best restaurant in Kansas City but. . . the food was okay but not great, the service was okay but not great, the atmosphere was okay but not great. The bar dominates the restaurant so it was loud.
