My husband and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Union Station. The Atlantic Cod Fish Tacos are to die for! Service is top notch! Great place to eat. Highly recommended!

This place had outstanding food and service. Everything I had was delicious. Union Station is a spectacular venue. I love sourdough, and their sourdough loaf was delicious. It disappeared quickly, and I was all by myself! I would suggest getting what I call the sampler. Their "small plates tasting menu" was a delicious value, and a nice way for those... More

Everything was fabulous. I highly recommend this restaurant. The blue cheese sauce was amazing on the steak! Everything we had was the best from the soup, salad, cheese plate, entree's- steak & lobster- both with mashed potatoes & asparagus or green beans- all were perfection! Great location closer to downtown. Union station is an attraction in itself- made a total... More

This charming place is located at Kansas City's old Union Station. The bar is a sight to behold. Top shelf takes on a new meaning in this bar where a classic library ladder in rollers gives the bartender access to shelves of liquor that go up to the ceiling. The menu is worth a read as it has quotes of... More

We chose this restaurant because it was supposed to be quiet and elegant. We had to walk through a large noisy bar area to get to our table. When I asked if we could have a table away from the bar we were brought to a table away from the actual bar but between the bar area and the very... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience, we learn so much from our customers. We are sorry Pierpont's was too noisy for you. Being in an historic building with 30 foot ceilings, we have natural accustical challenges....and try to move parties to more intimate corners when possible. We don't promote ourselves as a quiet elegant restaurant,... More

The service here was timed at perfection. As soon as you place your order, the waitress had everything brought out timed perfectly so when you are done with course 1 here comes course 2 and so forth. You definitely feel as though you have a server to yourself. The food was very good. This was definitely one of the best.... More

We were greeted and promptly seated with early evening reservations at Pierpont's. This was a first time visit for all of our party of 4 who were in town for a convention. The lovely atmosphere of restored Union Station if very impressive! Bright, clean, gorgeous surroundings are equally matched with great service and very good food. It is a bit... More

My niece wanted to go to a good steakhouse on her first visit here as an adult; having checked up on a few of the classics I've heard of my whole life, we decided to take her here instead. My wife and I are both glad we did! Excellent food, attentive wait staff, lovely ambiance...my only regret was not having... More

Loved the food and it has a nice, cozy atmosphere. We've been here before, and typically have very good service. This last time, however, our waiter was paying a LOT of attention to the couple two tables down, and let our drinks run dry more than once on this slow Thursday night. Especially frustrating with a $130+ tab. But this... More

Pierpont's is one of my favorite restaurants in the KC area. The ambience and the architecture of the restaurant is wonderful. I love the dark wood and brass accents along with the dim lighting. It creates an intimate yet comfortable atmosphere. Pierpont's is located in Union Station, an old railroad station that has been completely restored and still serves as... More
