Best steak EVER

I am from TX and I know my beef. Someone told me that this place had the best steaks in the world and I just smiled. Well, they were right. I am well traveled, and I have never had a steak this wonderful. I ordered the New York Strip and it was huge, and cooked to perfection. Everyone at our... read more

We had dinner with my wife's sister and her husband. My wife's medallions was, in her words, the best steak she ever had. Brother-in-law had the brochettes, and he raved about it. Sister-in-law had pasta and prawns, and I had the Norwegian salmon. Both were excellent. Kane's is a great place for a fine meal, with great service to boot.

Great visit, thanks to Olivia making my phone message for reservation. We have been here a couple of times (always upstairs) it was nice on the first floor. Shannon was our waitress very good and attentive. Like the wine cork fee.

We took our teen daughter for a special birthday dinner. We were not the only family celebrating a big day. Beef is a favorite of my family, so prime rib was ordered. They were impressed and the meat was served as requested. I had the fish offering, salmon with a delicious sauce. A complimentary dessert was the absolute to-die-for.

My wife took me here on my birthday a few years ago and it still stands out as the best meal I've had in St. Louis. The steak was cooked perfectly, the sides were great, and so was the service.

I happened to make my first visit to Citizen Kane's while pregnant and on dietary restrictions thanks to gestational diabetes. This pretty much hugely limits my options, so I probably didn't have the best experience possible, but the service, atmosphere, and food was as good as it good have been. I refuse to spend money on any steak "well done",... More

Citizen Kane's holds a special place in my heart as one of the first "fancy" restaurants I went to when I moved to St. Louis over a decade ago. Not sure why it took so long to get back there, but I finally returned this month for a special occasion dinner. The restaurant is located on Clinton Street one block... More

You cannot go wrong with Citizen Kane! For the price, it is better than Ruth Chris. A relaxed old house atmosphere with wonderful food.

I've been to all of the other major steakhouses in St. Louis. This was my first time at Citizen Kane's. Upon arrival I went to the bar. The bar was unimpressive, but the drinks were fine. When the rest of my group arrived we were seated upstairs. The restaurant had a nice family like feel. I ordered the ribeye and... More
