This restaurant is never disappointing. I've eaten here several times and enjoy the ambience and the four course meals. The service has been tops and they always offer discounts after attending arts events in KC. My favorite food at this establishment is the seared Ahi Tuna and the flaming bread pudding. This is just a cool place to eat and... More

Ate at the bar, the food was fantastic! Filet perfectly cooked, delicious side items. The bar is stunning--green marble counter, comfortable seats, and a huge displays of bottles with a vintage ladder for the staff to climb to get something on the top shelf. Ordered an Old Fashioned and loved that the bartender had to climb up a little to... More

The location is great and the service excellent. We had 6 of us for dinner and every single starter and entrée was superb. Will definitely return for another visit. Great place for dinner.

Historic without being fussy, this is a special occasion place....or every Friday for the regulars at the amazing bar. (One of the best happy hours in town it all day, great before a Sprint concert) Spectacular architecture. I always have the lobster bisque, with fresh sourdough bread. The pear walnut blue cheese salad is a favorite, along with any steak.... More

We convinced the manager that our dog would be fine laying down just outside the tape barrier of the restaurant seating in the main hall of Union Station. We were able to order from the main menu and had very good food and service. Our waiter, Jason, was very attentive without being oppressive. Oyster snacks, bisque and crab cake appetizers,... More

Visited Pierpont's as a group of 4 for a business dinner. A beautiful restaurant with character, in the historic Uni0n Station. A real treat for a business dinner or a romantic meal. The bar is incredible, and the selection is unlike anything I have seen (see photos). I sampled several premium whiskeys and I loved them all. The food was... More

Beautiful meals and a caring and helpful staff. Really nice selection. Not the least expensive in the area and can be considered a bit pricey, but for that special evening - perfect

We happened upon this restaurant by visiting the historic Union Station of Kansas City. We were pleasantly surprised. Their steaks here are delicious. Make sure to save room for dessert, too.

Subdued lighting lends a quiet elegance to the decor which includes displays of wine upstairs and down. Service is impecable. Located in historic Union Station so you can see KC HIstory, see an IMAX before dinner if you come early, see wonderful exhibits traveling from around the world and look out the front after dark to see the Monolithic World...

Pierpont's is one of my favorite places to do any of the following: - a special occasion dinner -weeknight dinner -happy hour The atmosphere in the bar/lounge area is superb if you like soft lighting and an art deco feel.
