We dined at Pierpont's in the historic union station in Kansas City which has been fully restored to its former grandeur. We were staying at the Westin Crown Center, and it was an easy, heated, and closed walk via the link to get from our hotel to union station without exposing ourselves to weather. The restaurant is the former children's... More

There were 3 bartenders on Saturday night, all of whom were professional, fast, and knowledgeable. The waitress was also quick, and friendly. Great prices for drinks, and they can make anything you can throw at them. Beautiful restaurant, great decorations, and holiday outfits. I wish we had more time to spend there! Thank you!

I chose Pierpont's for my dad's 80th birthday to make sure everything would be excellent and it was. The hostess, manager and waiter all went out of their way to wish him a happy birthday. Their menu has a great mix of creative and classic items, their seafood is perfectly prepared and their wine and liquor selection is outstanding. If... More

Have eaten at Pierpont's many times in the past and the experience has always been great, but our latest visit was not good. Restaurant was not crowded when we were seated but even getting a glass of water was slow. It also took a very long time to get our drink order and the ice tea was cloudy and tasted... More

We were treated to an excellent meal and tremendous service. The bar is beautiful. Take time to walk around Union Station while you are there and take in the beauty of this building. An added bonus were the Christmas decorations.

My Husband and I made reservations at Pierpont's to celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary. Pierpont's definitely lived up to our expectations. We were shown to a table right away when we arrived. Our waitress, Vicki, was super attentive and made our evening feel very special. The food was fantastic! Both of our steaks were cooked to perfection. As a... More

Stopped here for lunch mid week and enjoyed the strip steak with mashed potatoes and salad. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. Our group of 6 was escorted downstairs to a private dining room surrounding with wine racks, intricate wood panelling and artwork. Wait staff was attentive and even gave us a 10 minute history lesson Union Station and even what the... More

We stopped in on a whim for a drink while checking out Union Station in the evening. I was very impressed - the bar tenders were extremely knowledgeable on whiskey and beer, incredibly friendly and helpful with sites to see. The old world atmosphere and ambiance was so refreshing in a world of slick modern everything.

This is an upscale restaurant with dark paneling in the old style of a traditional steakhouse located in Union Station. The decor and atmosphere are elegant and refined. I am reluctant to only give 3 stars, but based on my last visit that's all I can do. The 8 oz Kansas City strip steak on their lounge menu was very... More
