I will agree with some of the reviews saying this place was very noisy. It is that. We were sitting next to a group of extremely noisy men who clearly had a little too much to drink. But this by no means is the restaurant's fault. The first thing that came out to the table was the bread and to... More

The bread was stale. We were sat upstairs next to a rambunctious group of 8 and could not carry a conversation on. The steaks were perfect. I was disappointed in the plastic-like table cloths. Ruth Chris Steak House much better!

My wife and I wanted to try someplace we hadn't tried before so we went to Citizen Kane's for that experience. We were not disappointed! Our steaks were fabulous, as were our sides. The service was very good. The old house itself is charming and although valet parking is available, I chose to park my own car. The chocolate cake... More

That was my first thought as I read the negative reviews. We had not been to Citizen Kane's yet this year. The birthday celebrant decided that this was his restaurant of choice. Yes, the bread was fresh and warm; sauteed mushrooms and shrimp cocktail outstanding as always. The New York Strip, Filet, and Tenderloin medallions as always were top quality.... More

If you believe the $$$ cost of your steak is the most important or that the cost may impress your clients, date or friends then there are a number of steakhouses in St. Louis that you can go to to spend more $$$ for the same quality steaks served at Citizen Kane. If you want value and the total experience... More

We were recommended to try Citizen Kane's and were somewhat unimpressed when we pulled up to this older home in a residential neighborhood. However, despite a somewhat stark atmosphere we were overwhelmed by the quality of our food. The steaks were fabulous, as were all of the side dishes. Service was fast and attentive even on a Thursday evening! I... More

If you want to waste money on lousy food, this is the place. The bread was stale and tasteless and after asking for more (warm and fresh) it came the same way, stale and tasteless. The bordelaise sauce is nothing but flour and water, a complete waste of money. The potatoes were cold and hard, again a complete waste of... More

The service from our waiter was acceptable and the bus girl was outstanding. The bread we were served us was stale. We started with sauteed mushrooms. They came lukewarm at best and judging by how quickly they arrived after being ordered they were not prepared to order. Our salads were good. My wife ordered a fillet and I a pork... More

One of the best ribeyes ever. It was huge, 14 ounces, so my husband and I split one. I can't remember right now what I had with the steak, but I know I liked it. The couple with us go there quite often. They tried the shrimp and said that they have a new favorite. The setting in an old... More

My wife and I and our adult children dined on a Sunday night. Three of us had the Ribeye and my wife had the filet. Al were perfectly cooked and delicious. We had reservations and were seated immediately. A nice, quiet family evening.
