“A pricy, but good, dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you don't mind spending over $30 for a steak, this is the place for you. My steak was good....my husband's lacked taste. The restaurant is located in the old Union Station, a beautiful place.
I don't think we would go back, but if you're willing to spend the money to experience a very traditional restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

“Great location for business meetings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Had dinner here a few months back and it was very good. The service was very nice and prices were commensurate with the service and food. While I would not rate it up with Plaza III or Ruth's Chris, It is a worthy KC steakhouse.

“Good Resturant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Located in Union Station an interesting piece of historical architecture. We went here for a business dinner, the atmosphere is formal but not stuffy, service and food were both excellent . The menu and wine list were exactly what you would expect. We had steaks and lobster thermadore, everyone was very please. The food, service and restaurant make a nice impression. I would highly recommend for business or a special occasion $$$$

“A Unique KC Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere of Pierpont's is unlike any other restaurant in Kansas City. The architectural details of Union Station are a highlight throughout the restaurant. Once or twice I've had a less-than-memorable experience, but overall the food and service are consistently good. A great Special Occasion spot.

“Great food, historic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

In historic Union Station in Kansas City, MO. Service was polite, efficient, and not stuffy. Crab cakes, pear and walnut salad, salmon and golden snapper entrees. All very well done, nicely presented, not super sized portions.
Quiet evening atmosphere. Great for conversation and great food. $$$$, but free parking.
