Went for a birthday celebration and was somewhat disappointed. Have had better food for less money in Kirkwood numerous times. Having said that, the steaks were exceptional, as was the creamed spinach!!! Maybe we were there on an off night, as service was quite slow,...More

We have had numerous wonderful meals at Citizen Kanes. The food is never disappointing. They serve the best cuts of beef, and the seafood choices are always fresh. For the quality of food, service and offerings, you cannot go wrong here.

My steak was perfect. Thought presentation of food did not reflect level of price. Service was excellent. Would have liked butter instead of margarine which although a small deal did not fit with price and star rating.

I don't think I have ever had a bad meal there. Service is the best, on top of things but not "in your face". The filet's "melt in our mouth". Best in the city. Worth the price for sure.

We dined on Sunday night and enjoyed the experience. The venue is unique, the service was wonderful, the steaks were very good and the sides were average at best. We fell victim to the raging reviews on this site and may have set our expectations...More
