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

One of KC's best restaurants, Pierpont's is especially good for steak. It's dark and cozy inside, and its location inside Union Station adds a coolness factor. This is a good place for special occasions. I would have given it a higher rating if the waitress had not asked us to leave because we'd been there a couple of hours (ordering... More

We had a wonderful time at pierpont's restaurant in the train station. We both ordered steaks and it was phenomenal. After our delicious meal we wondered around the train station and looked at the artifacts. It was both a romantic and exciting date. I would highly recommend the steaks and the wine list is quite extensive. Go, eat and ENJOY!... More

This is a lovely restaurant in a restored train station, with a nice variety of dishes and a good wine selection by the glass. On a Sunday evening the restaurant was nearly empty but service was quite slow, so be careful if you're in a hurry.

We'd had the tasting menu at Pierpont's several years ago, and remembered it fondly when we were in Kansas City last week. We both chose the 4-item menu, and I added the wine selection. Everything was excellent, and the portions more than adequate. Service was impeccable, food presentation attractive, and the meals were delicious. We will certainly consider Pierpont's if... More

My husband and I were in KC for a long weekend and wanted a nice steak dinner (KC Strips, right?!). We didn't want to go to a chain restaurant and he found Pierpont through a few Google searches and away we went! The restaurant was VERY quiet and empty for a Sunday, but we enjoyed the peace and ambiance. The... More
