This is without any doubt, the best restaurant in Kansas City. The food is superb. The service is impeccable. The seafood is the best I've ever had anywhere. The lobster was truely the best I've ever had. The cheesecake was the best I've ever had. Saul, out waiter, gave us the most enjoyable, dinner of my life. Not enough good... More

Service is excellent, food is excellent. Yes, it is expensive but you get what you pay for, and you certainly feel like a King/Queen eating here.

We were staying at the Intercontinental Hotel up the hill so the Capital Grille was recommended. It was good but pricy for what you got. We had Calamari which came with hot peppers. I didn't like the peppers as you could no longer taste the calamari - neither did the other diners in our group. The calamari was heavy, deep... More

Consistently have excellent food and impeccable service here every time I go. This combination is why this restaurant deserves its #1 status. The steak is tender and every bite is enjoyable. The special martini here is the Stoli Doli, a pineapple infused vodka simply shaken with ice and strained into your martini glass-it is my favorite cocktail! I have been... More

My wife and I went to celebrate my birthday (which she had alerted them to). Our waiter was very helpful all evening, as was all his support staff. Our food from the salad, to the soup, to the really excellent steaks, were prepared properly and were very tasty. Our wine selection, aided by the waiter was quite good, at a... More

The Capital Grille is a national chain of steakhouses that doesn't look or taste or act like a chain. We've been to several of them, in Chicago, Denver, Sarasota and Washington, D.C. The last time we visited Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, the Capital Grille was nowhere to be seen. But it's there now, at 4740 Jefferson Street near... More

Great food and great service - haven't been there in a decade and it's still a classic. Dark and mysterious, the food and service is impeccable. Great for business dinners when you're on an expense report since it's pretty pricey but still worth the trip if you have a special event to celebrate.

If you're a carnivore who loves and appreciates great quality meats, accompanied by flawless service, this restaurant is for you. They also have a great wine selection, and the mixed drinks are terrific.

Probably my favorite place for very special occasions - a mile from my home, on Kansas City's Plaza, world class service, superbly prepared dishes, like their steak au poivre or their spicy calamari. If I were a rich man, I'd dine there daily and risk the gout.

While I can say they easily have the best filet in town (get it with the porcini rub), the brunch for Mother's Day was phenomenal as well as the service. In addition to the buffet selection you could get made to order omelets and the best frittata I've ever had that was served with a lobster tail on top. Dinner,... More

In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.
