metropolitanKC - Marriott Hotel Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
My friends and I ate here before attending a play at the Music Hall across the street. We were seated right away, and the server brought us our menus immediately. We were pleased with all the food. The mushroom gratin appetizer was excellent. The Caesar salads were large and delicious, and the wine was excellent and reasonably priced. The Chicken Marsala, stuffed pork chop and steak dinners were all fabulous. We shared the chocolate cake for dessert, and it was perfect for 3 people. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The Thanksgiving buffet was nice. Server was amazing. Food was pretty good. However, they ran out of prime rib before many of my guests even had a chance to even get one slice. Very disappointing. A buffet should plan on enough food for guests. Just because of this reason, we won't be back. No one likes to be told a buffet ran out of food before you even get some. Very poor planning.
Here you have a large downtown hotel essentially full with people from a show and this restaurant was not even busy, only a few tables were occupied and the service and food don't even deserve 1 star. Simple steak salad, steak was overcooked the first time which took 40 minutes to get , but the second time it was still overcooked and took another 30 minutes to arrive. This was a business dinner 7 people and the wait time and the poor service did not make it an enjoyable meal. You would think that the hotel management would be keeping a closer eye on this.
I have taken customers here on multiple occasions during trade shows at the KC Convention Center. I recommend making reservations. If you let them know you are there for a business meal/meeting, they will do what they can to seat in a quieter, lower traffic area.
The menu selection is always delectable at the Metropolitan, but as we go before an event at Music Hall, Midland or the Folly, prompt service is imperative! Time and time again, we have to beckon the server for drinks or 'where's the dinner?' When we were seated by 6 with a reservation, we advised we'd need to be served/checked out by 7:10 to walk to theater. We had not been served by 6:45 and were anxious that we would not have time to eat comfortably. Dinner came shortly after, but we felt rushed to eat our perfectly cooked selection of pork chops, ribs, and entrée salads. I WISH they'd have a small buffet option for Friday and Saturday nights like Lilly's used to have... it was always a "no brainer" for the theater crowd!
We had the breakfast buffet included in our room package since we are Marriott Platinum rewards members. The buffet was good. The fruit selection was really good. They also offered scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, oatmeal, cereals, breads, muffins, yogurt and beverages. Great service too. Overall value I would say is pretty good considering it was included in our room stay.
The server brought us 2 kinds of butter: plain, & a delicious strawberry butter with the soft, warm bread served with our chicken noodle soup appetizer. My boyfriend's steak was cooked perfectly, & delicious; he was very happy with it! Would go here again for a special ocassion or with a special deal.
We went here on New Year's Eve, had a reservation and the restaurant was not full. We were greeted fairly quickly but it took a good 25 minutes to get our drinks, which were ordered off of their "special" drink list for the evening. The food was sub par and the service was absolutely awful. I would not recommend or go back. Awful start to our evening.
Ordered the whipped potatoes and the filet. The potatoes were really good but the cook had a bit of a heavy hand when adding pepper, the filet was SO not worth what we paid. It was fatty, hard to cut and over-cooked. The flavor was good - but it was crispy on the outside and just an all around waste of good money. Could have gone to Capitol Grille for what we paid there.
The mushroom brie was really good though!
Our family of four has started a tradition that we go out on Thanksgiving, and are at home for Christmas and New Year's Day. We try a different place each year. The Metropolitan was a good choice. Fair price, we had a wonderful server, and a nice buffet. Not as grand as some, but we had a very nice family Thanksgiving this year. Thank you!
The bbq salad was yummy and big enough to share with 2-4 people. My wife had the crab topped Sea bass and loved it. Prices were very affordable. Service was really poor. There were several servers, but ours kept disappearing for 15-20 minutes at a time. We had to hunt her down to request our check. She didn't deserve the 10% tip, but I hope she understands why it wasn't more.
There are few restaurants within walking distance of The Music Hall to have dinner before a show. We chose this restaurant because we could park in the municipal garage and walk to dinner and the show during bad weather. We were there at 6 pm. The place was empty. The staff including the hostess, busboy and waiter all appeared clueless regarding bar and menu options. We clearly told them we had a show to go to at 7:30. Then they promptly forgot about us. Finally got the busboy to take out order as the waiter could not be found. We had physically go find the waiter in another part of the restaurant to remind him that our order had still not some by almost 7 pm. Now the food was good, but we had to gulp it down to get to the show. I don't know if the staff was new, untrained, or just oblivious.....but it was a terrible and not inexpensive experience.
We like to dine here on Music Hall event nights due to proximity. We'd informed our server that we had to be in/out within 1 1/2 hours with check closeout. It took 20 min to place our order, then 40 min for the food to be served, missing several of the sides. We had to request deduction for the missing sides, and it took another 10 min to replace the checks, leaving us 10 min to walk to the show. They should have more mid-range options on their menu or else take reservations over in the bar area. Will think twice before going there again prior to theater. On event nights, the place should be packed (like it used to be) -- they should have a buffet option to circumvent the service issues.
