About the restaurant
Located inside the 21c Museum Hotel, The Savoy is a creative effort to honor our rich history while also looking to the future. As we focus on a progressive style of Midwest hospitality, we aim to use classic techniques with contemporary touches in our kitchen. Our food is thoughtful, yet approachable as we pride ourselves on welcoming all guests from all walks of life.

Our focus on seasonal ingredients from local farmers gives us deep ties in our community and allows us to use the highest quality products for our dishes. Our evolving and interesting cocktail and wine lists reproduce this idea of using products from local distilleries and family-owned vineyards to give our guests classic yet progressive options to enhance your dining experience.

Come as you are, for a special occasion or just a casual night out in the historic district of Kansas City, we look forward to welcoming you to our space.

Service was excellent. French toast was divine (highly recommend it!). Eggs Benedict were disappointing!! They were served with hard boiled centers. Seems odd no one- from cook to server to second server who clearly saw they were over cooked, offered to remake them. We’ve been long-time Savoy diners but probably won’t be back after being served over cooked Eggs Benedict . Boo hoo!
