The American RestaurantThe American Restaurant has been recognized as the premier venue for outstanding cuisine since it opened in 1974, and has consistently received the Mobil Four-Star rating and the AAA Four Diamond Award. The restaurant is perched atop Crown Center and offers a spectacular panoramic view of Downtown and the surrounding area. It was designed by architect Warren Platner, who also designed Windows on the World in New York. Though its decor has been updated through the years the timeless design and elegant surroundings are still breathtaking, and were honored in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects with its Allied Arts and Craftsmanship Award.
The staff at The American is committed to delivering outstanding food and service to our guests. We welcome private parties, corporate events and wedding celebrations, and are eager to work with clients to design the menu and details of these functions.

An excellent dinner consisting of 5 courses with wine pairings, impeccable service and a beautiful view of the city.
We celebrated a birthday at The American last night. What a superb experience. It was quiet due to being a Tuesday night, so the ambience was serene; the decor soft yet sparkling. The chef surprised us with unusual offerings, all of which were delicious. Every bite was a treat. This restaurant is a true Kansas City gem.
What a spectacular restaurant! This was my first visit (after 40+ years in KC) and it surpasses its reputation. The food, service and live entertainment were all above par and our view of the city skyline at sunset was marvelous. I recommend this for any special occasion or just when you need some extra pampering
