This restaurant Is on the lower floor of the Raphael hotel and the food, service and atmosphere is top notch! We've eaten here several times and they are consistently good, with great menu selections and an excellent wine list. The small "lounge" area is also very inviting and they have some live music most of the time, but it is... More

I have been hitting this place for the Happy Hour for the last few years and I have never been disappointed. Great Happy Hour and the food during happy hour is awesome. One of these visits I am planning on a full dinner and perhaps a full breakfast at this place. The menu is inviting and if the Happy Hour... More

Previous TripAdvisor reviews rank this among KC's best. We agree! The greeting, service, atmosphere and attention to detail were all top-notch. Our server, Doug, was one of the best we have had in our extensive dining experience. We started with excellent crab cakes and she crab soup, both excellent. My wife and I were both in the mood for something... More

My husband and I had both our evening meal here and our breakfast the next morning as we were staying in our favorite KC hotel, the Raphael Hotel. Both meals were very good. We are vegetarians and the chef prepared a delicious melange of sautéed spinach, sautéed mushrooms and risotto (no cheese.) The "greens" salad was substantial with a wonderful... More

We spent several evenings here having a late drink and enjoying the nightly live music. If you are a bit hungry, the shrimp and grits are awesome! No draft beer (darn) but a good selection. Big wine list and full bar.

The Classic Egg Benedict was excellent and hands down beat The Classic Cup restaurant. The couple next to us said their pancakes were great. Friendly and good service with inviting atmosphere. Hot food and beverages were served hot and to our specifications. You might pay a bit more for these perks which is why I gave it a 4/5.

I think the most inexpensive beer was $7.00 and glass of wine was about $13... Too much for what the restaurant offers.

Loved this place! Great live Jazz, cozy ambiance. We had a client for dinner and while the music was enjoyable, it didn't make conversation difficult. The food however, was disappointing. I was anticipating a piece of beef that I've come to expect when visiting KC and it was far below those expectations. I've had steaks at Sizzler that were better.... More
