This was a great brunch on a Sunday morning. I reserved a table for two and was received by the restaurant at the exact time I had reserved. They had outdoor seating and indoor seating. Unfortunately due to the hot weather, the indoor tables were all taken. My girlfriend and I ended up taking a table outside with a view of the plaza facing the Buca side. Service was prompt and very good even with a full house of guests. The food was evenly portioned and the pricing was not bad at all for what they were serving. I would visit this place again if I was interested in brunch within the Plaza area.

Overall, a good meal with nice atmosphere. Service was a little below avg., but server was new. Manager was very helpful and covered where needed. Will go back.

Always a great place for brunch, so many options ranging from their world famous griddle cakes to their salmon-egg benedict. Classy and courteous servers, with seating out front and out back, with fabulous cocktails and a full bar - something for everyone.

Menu is terrific. Service, ambiance and atmosphere is always spot on!
The KC Location for Brunch!
This is a must-do for brunch when in the Kansas City Plaza area. Amazing plates. Our group had the daily quiche, french toast, and salmon Benedict. Smiles all around. Elizabeth was a friendly and attentive server!
Not what I expected
Went for a birthday dinner and were very disappointed. The entre' selection was limited and what we did order was either bland and at the worst cold. For an "institution" that has been on the Plaza for years, they have just become tired and overpriced. Will mark this one off as an overall bad decision.

For a place that is known for brunch, especially a holiday weekend, way below par! It took over 15 minutes to get drink after we ordered at bar, then seated. Bartender was rude and was inconvenienced by our asking for a mimosa with cranberry juice, instead of orange juice. I can't drink orange juice! Food was overlooked for seared to medium rare. It was done. Trying to get check so we could leave took longer! Will never visit this place again. I have given it too many tries!!

The waitress hardly checked on us and we had to ask several times to have our drinks refilled and coffee too.
I have been for lunch and the food was amazing but our recent visit for dinner was not good.

Excellent place for a relaxing, hip, classic Sunday brunch in KC.
Fantastic Sunday Brunch
I had a great time taking my friend to Birthday Brunch! Our server was fantastic! The restaurant was so busy but we were always tended to - our food came quick and we were both pleased! Love the Classic Cup!

Ordered the blacken chicken Caesar salad. Chicken was extremely dry. It was a birthday, which was mentioned in the reservation. No acknowledgment was given to it. Wait staff, although very polite, appeared to be given too many tables to care for at one time.

Longtime favorite. The ambiance is enough to attract me. Even on a cold day, the long and shallow profile makes you feel like your at a European-like sidewalk café. It's comfortable for drinks and aps or a business meeting or even a special occasion. The Cellar facility is excellent for a group up to 60. On a great day, the outdoor deck is the best spot to enjoy the Country Club Plaza. Add in the fact its a strong 4-star restaurant with well-crafted, dependable dishes and you have an outstanding restaurant. If you are a wine enthusiast, owner Stephen Malloy is one of the top personalities in the region and he has built a killer wine cellar.

Great mall-area outdoor dining option--great waitress (Stephanie), good beef--all loved our food and drink. Shocked at the bill being from the NE--great place.
We've been to Classic Cup in the past. But it's been over a year. This time was very disappointing. The wait stuff wasn't pleasant and I rarely saw a smile on anyone face. Some of the staff looked sloppy and for the price I'm paying I felt this slight nicer restaurant would reflect this. I was also disappointed in my food. Very bland and my mother in laws sticky French toast wasn't soaked all the way through and the bread was extremely difficult to cut.

After nearly 20 years since I last went, food remains great. The location was packed for breakfast. Service came with an attitude, but my friends said that was unusual. Great plaza breakfast place.
Great spot for breakfast
Met a friend after the Trolley Run. Sat outside and had a great breakfast. Remembered the coffee being better but otherwise the food was very good.
The waitress wasn't very attentive to us.
We had a 5.30 reservation, with few tables occupied. The service was slow, and the server didn't seem to really care about her work. She was unfamiliar with some of the items on the menu, looked over our heads when we were talking to her, and basically seemed uninterested. Food was great, as always! We will return, of course.
Wed dined before the opera on a recent Spring evening. Tables by the window or outside allow diners to see the energy of the Plaza. The salmon salad is reasonable and very tasty. The only downside is they don't have happy hour pricing.
Good food and location, didn't honor reservation
The food and location here are wonderful. The price is reasonable. If you get lucky and get to sit outside you'll really enjoy it. My biggest complaint is that we had a reservation, yet we still had to wait 30 minutes and the hostess wasn't very helpful and refused to smile. Good food, definitely worth checking out. The service could use some help.

My husband and I did not have the best experience. The hostess was rude and impatient with us, and overall the service felt rushed. I ordered the crab cake Benedict and while tasty, my poached eggs were almost hard poached. I just left feeling very unsatisfied.
Anniversary Night Out
We enjoyed Classic Cup for our anniversary. We sat outside in the front of the restaurant (outdoor seating both front and back), so the noise rating is lower than it would have been if we sat inside. The service was great and food presentation was very nice, however, I do not recommned the scallops. The dish was rather expensive for 3 scallops that had mediocre flavor and were gritty (yes, I know scallops can have sand in them when removed from the shell, but honestly these were gritty). My husband ordered salmon, which was over cooked. It has been a couple of years since we last dined at The Classic Cup and we did not experience this in the past. I hope it was just an off night and this will not occur if we dine there in the future.

Great local dining. Love it when the doors are open and you can see people strolling by, even if you are inside. They have some nice affordable wines on their menu, delicious food, great service. All around fantastic.
I like this place. Good food, super slow service.
I like this place. For a casual experience I recommend the back patio. The front seating is nice atmosphere both in and out. Food is good. Tons of wine selections though be ware the wines are very expensive and by the bottle only. Service very slow and ran out of menus even tough there was tons of empty seats...that was odd.
Always a Favorite...
Had LATE brunch on a Sunday and food was impeccable, as always. Service wasn't the best I've ever had , but still good. I can't remember the last time I've visited KC and NOT eaten at The Classic Cup.
Sunday Brunch - great menu selection with amazing omelettes. Coffee is great (Roasterie) and abundant.

Though I usually have good food experience, today was not the case as I had to send my food back twice due to being over cooked
