“Below Average Lobster”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2007

I think this may be a great steak place based on the other Herford House locations but the Lobster Tail was average or below average. Good salad and the macaroni cheese was the best ever. Staff was knowledgeable about the wine list. Server was attentive but did nothing about me complaining tha the Lobster Tail was average or below. She got exactly 15% tip, to the penny.

“Great service, food and atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2006

Great place to go to eat lunch or dinner in Union Station, a historic refurbished railroad station. It is a cavernous, beautiful, art deco historic sight to see. Plus Pierponts Restaurant offers great service and food. The only negative I can come up with as I can say of quite a few restaurants is that they allow smoking at the bar and it can waft over to your dining table. I loved the friendly exceptional service and food. Overall a must to go to when in Kansas City. Union Station also contains the Science Museum and is close to Crown Center.

“Nice place, food quality average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2006

Pros: Great atmosphere. Friendly staff. Read some reviews that said the resteraunt was loud, this was not the case on the Saturday night I made my visit.


Cons: The quality of the steaks was not on par with the price. The steak was in no way "bad" but for $30 I think the quality in flavor could be much much better.

“Wonderful food and atomosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2005

We are regulars at Crown Center and Pierponts and have enjoyed both for almost five years now. Their food is very good (the small plates are our favorite) and they have a great wine list. Of course, the bar is beautiful, but we enjoy the dining rooms, too. Their steaks are very good, and surprisingly, so are the lobster tails. Take someone special.
