I've been twice in the last six months and both times have been very average for the money. We went last night for a special birthday celebration. Took 45 minutes to get our menus once seated and didn't improve from there.

I had clients in town so knew I could not go wrong taking them here. I was not wrong in my choice. A very extensive wine list with excellent food. A little pricey but not a problem, when the experience is worth the money. You cant go wrong with this choice.

Expensive steakhouse. Service was good and well paced. Food was good but not great. Wine list is extensive but pricy. Wine list and desert drink list were on an I pad. Guess I am old fashioned, but I prefer it on paper.

First I found the ambiance interesting. We went there for a late lunch on a weekday. It was not busy and quiet with old tunes playing such as Frank Sinatra. The decor and the waiters in their tan jackets also reminded me of a restaurant you might see in the movies in the 1950s. That being said, the service was... More

My wife and I made a reservation and visited for our wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in the door, the hostess checked us in and was nothing but polite and friendly with us. We were seated at the time of our reservation, not a minute past. Our server knew his stuff and kept the mood light. I ordered... More

Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The wait staff, the food, the service. We the ahi, and the lobster and steak both dishes were very good. We also enjoyed the spinach salad. The sides are large, there was just the two of us, so I would recommend not ordering too many, they will split them so you can try... More

Absolutely perfect! A bit of a splurge for us but well worth it. Top tier service; the word "no" is not in their vocabulary. The steaks were perfect and everything else was delicious as well. One of the nicest restaurants we've ever visited. 5+ stars.

It was the weekend for the Art Festival so the restaurant was slammed . Given that, service was slow. Took a while to get the wine list then the wine to us. Atmosphere was really loud. Food was very good especially the steaks....their expertise. We also had the crab cakes. They were good, but not hot enough. Seemed to only... More

Wonderful dinner with friends. Evening was made even more special with Jo Ellen, our server. Perfect old fashions, excellent wine selections, and great entrees. From the fillet to bone in ribeye, all perfectly cooked and presented. So happy to have dined at a KC icon.

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.
