    I made this reservation via-Open Table in which Open Table showed this place was open for brunch-on Mother's Day but when we got there at 12:30, the host told us they did not offer anything special for Mother's day or did they have any brunch, so we had to eat off their regular lunch menu, in which it wasn't a lot of options and it was very expensive. The menu only had different sandwiches and a chicken Caesar salad as their options, who wants to eat that for Mother's Day. We very disappointed and I will not be going back there again.

    We really enjoy eating at the Metropolitan before going to the music hall. The food is always very good and this past Sunday it was excellent! We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, they had run out of gravy for the biscuits and I inquired if the were being more; shortly after I asked the staff from the kitchen brought me a small cup of gravy! Our server, Maria, was very sweet and helpful! A very good experience!

    We have been having brunch at the MetropolitanKC for many years before attending the Broadway Series at the Music Hall. The food and service have always been above expectations. We have always parked in the Barney Allis Plaza Garage and entered the hotel through the marked access from the garage, but this time the doors to our usual access were padlocked (chained). A call to the front desk of the hotel resulted in a valet coming to the other side of the doors to inform us that they did not have a key to open the way. We were given no meaningful reason why anything was different from the last time we were there. While we have recommended MetropolitanKC to many going to the Music Hall in the past, I cannot continue to do so as long as the Marriott Hotel locks the clearly marked access doors from the garage.

    The food and setting was good, but it wasn't all that big of a deal as the description would lead you to believe. Standard fare. nicely prepared and served, but nothing to write home about. I'm sure the regualr menu, especially evenings is better. It's the Marriott after all.

    For a buffet on Father’s Day...that was lame. Scrambled eggs, sausage & bacon, wanna be “waffles” which are frozen French toast sticks, oatmeal & fruit. Really? No biscuits & gravy. No toast or English muffins. Nothing to go on top of your eggs. The only thing that was good was our waitress.

    Had Mother’s Day breakfast here. The buffet was as good as a buffet can get. Continuously bringing out hot food, the breakfast sausage was better than average. Fruit cups were already prepared and covered with plastic wrap due to Covid. Cereal, fresh oatmeal, French toast sticks, eggs, nothing tasted like it was sitting out for long periods of time, and like I said it seemed like someone was always bringing out food to replace or refill what was already out there. The one person in our group who did not do the buffet had the strawberry balsamic pancakes and they were VERY good, large chunks of strawberry inside the pancakes and the balsamic compote worked surprisingly well. We also were out of there for under $50 for a party of 4, would come here again

    Made a reservation for Sunday Brunch. We were seated promptly and even though they were very busy the service was excellent with some of the best fresh fruit I have had in Kansas City--especially in the middle of winter. Lots of variety including turkey sausage and gluten-free muffins. A very nice buffet that seemed to be continuously refilled.

    We have season tickets to the Broadway shows that come to the Music Hall and the Kauffman. When the shows are at the Music Hall we always eat at the Metropolitan KC. This time they said they didn't have out reservation and made us feel that we had screwed up even though I had a text from Open table. We were seated promptly however but it took an hour to order and receive our food which only left us 15 minutes to get to the Music Hall and be seated. Service has never been this slow. Not sure I will use this place in the future.

    The food was good and maybe slightly above average for a hotel but the atmosphere is very hotel-like with tables close together and somewhat uncomfortable seats. It was fairly quiet and easy to talk though and the service was excellent. It’s not an overall upscale experience for the money you are spending.

    I have never written a negative review for a restaurant in my 31 years of being on this earth, until now. This restaurant was that bad I had to write a review for this awful place. I reserved a table for two for valentines day with my girlfriend at 6:45 pm. The restaurant is next to the hotel check-in counter for the Marriott, so it was loud since so many guests checking in. The hostess ended up seating us smack-dab in the middle of the restaurant, the loudest area. When I politely asked my waiter if I could be re-seated, he simply said that was not possible, even though there was a large seating section in the corner that had nobody. My girlfriend and I ordered the $47 dollar-a-piece Valentines Day special (five courses w/champagne). Bread and water came quickly. Then...we waited 30 min for 1st course. During those 30 min, we were never asked how we're doing. Finally, a manager arrived with the first course, a spoonful of pork-belly on a bed of polenta. No apologies for the wait. Original waiter was nowhere to be seen. ANOTHER 30 minutes went by and a different waiter, who absolutely reeked of BO (like the worst BO i've ever experienced at a restaurant), brought us the third course (a lemon sorbet). ...Wait...why are we getting the 3rd course before the second course? We were able to flag down our original waiter and asked him why this happened? He said that's how it was supposed to be (it wasn't, I checked), and walked away. 2nd course (soup) came 20 min later, the soup was actually delicious, but main entree popped in 5 min after the soup arrived (obvs we weren't ready for it). Main entrees returned after 20 min, and my prime rib was well-done (I had ordered med rare). Asked the original waiter for new one, came out immediately and was cold (didn't even take away the old prime rib). Girlfriend's lobster was not seasoned. Another 40 minutes before dessert. In total we spent 2 hrs 45 min there. Complained to manager, they did nothing. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!

    Food was ok. Service was below a standard I would have expected for an upscale restaurant. 2 of the staff acted like they would rather not be there. Our main waitress was friendly enough but new to the restaurant and did not appear to have been trained in how an upscale restaurant service should be. It was unfortunate but this is our third time to this restaurant and service and food have always been sub par. Our mistake was waiting too late for a valentine night reservation and this was the only restaurant with space available at the time we needed to make a nearby show.

    We had tickets to a show nearby and limited eating options due to Valentine’s Day. Our waitress gets a pass because it was her first night, and she was fine. The rest of the staff and service was unorganized, slow, spilling drinks, food and plates everywhere within our view. One couple was literally given a champagne bath. We arrived at 5pm and it wasn’t busy yet, so a crowd wasn’t the cause. Food came out of the kitchen slowly, and some food and drinks were not delivered until we asked. Food was mediocre, decor was very dated. I chalk it up to poor management and training, and the experience was so bad that it became laughable.

    Our mashed potato fritters were excellent and our server was wonderful. Our steaks topped with crab were really not good at all. I couldn’t eat my steak and my potatoes were just okay. My daughter’s bbq pasta was also really not good. Even the presentation wasn’t done well. I wouldn’t choose to eat here again for dinner.

    The food was okay. Not worth the price. We were one of three tables there. 2 of them with only 2 people. It took us 35 minutes to get drinks after we ordered and our food was already at the table at that point. Food was about a 4 of 10. We had steak and lobster pasta. Okay food, but really unreasonable service for a sophisticated dining experience.

    When traveling, my usual plan is to avoid hotel restaurants. I have found that they typically offer bland food and mediocre service. Imagine my surprise to come across the Metropolitan at the downtown Marriott. My wife and I came here for Restaurant Week a few years ago and found a hidden gem (although hidden in plain sight). We have returned for other meals, including Mother's Day brunch and dinner before a stage performance at the Music Hall. Each time we have been impressed with the food and the service. The burger for lunch is quite good, as is their weekday lunch buffet. For dinner the BBQ Salmon and Warm Carrot Cake are excellent. Parking is easy below the hotel and the restaurant will validate for 2 hours parking.
