The Dining Experience
The Dining Experience at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts offers modern American cuisine prior to most evening performances at the Center. The Dining Experience has a seasonal three-course dinner menu for $39 per person, as well as a selection of small plates. Guests may enjoy a seasonal craft cocktail and curated wine selection.
Prior to select Kauffman Center Presents performances, enjoy special four-course dinners designed by award-winning Executive Chef Laura Comer. The four-course dinners are $60-$65 per person and include a wine or beer pairing with each course.
Walk-in dining is available at café tables and at the bar for small plates and cocktails. Reservations are required for the three-course dinner menu. Reservations are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended to make your reservation two weeks in advance. For pre-performance dining, please allow for 1 ½ hours for dinner service to enjoy our three-course menu.
Availability for large groups (5 or more) is very limited. To inquire about a large group please email .
