Limited menu in an old home. The steaks were of high quality and well prepared. Trimmings are a bit scant. Excellent deserts. Friendly, attentive wait staff. A bit pricey.

We were a party of 6. The restaurant is a converted house with a bar and some seating downstairs and more seating upstairs. There is no elevator, so if you can't do steps, ask for a table downstairs. The steaks are expensive, but huge. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly. A somewhat small wine list, but quite adequate.Take a sip... More

This place is okay. My guys boss would give him give certificates each year for CK so we kind of felt obligated to go. The staff is mediocre, the atmosphere feels like I am at my Grandmas house for Sunday dinner and who wants to climb rickity steps to get to the dining room? Some people love the place, me?... More

I enjoy going to Citizen Kane with my husband and daughter to celebrate special occasions. The service is fabulous, the food is amazing and it's a fun atmosphere. (It can be a little loud if all the tables are full but that doesn't bother us.)

Found this place online while looking for a place to go for my wife's birthday. The valet parking was a nice start, we loved the "old house" atmosphere and the service was extraordinary! The soup & salad arrived quickly, our water glasses were filled almost instantly when getting low, and the ribeye was fantastic! The menu did not list the... More

Citizen Kane's can't be topped when it comes to steaks. They are done to perfection, buttery to eat. This is accompanied by good attentive service.

My sister who lives in Kirkwood recommend we go there for dinner. We went on a Thursday night and was surprised the crowds. Not what I expected for food quality and proportion size.

Personally, I think the best steaks in the St. Louis area. It is one of those best choices for a special occasion. And the Steaks (and all dinners) are served with salad or soup, potatoes or vegetable. They also have a veru good wine selection. In addition to the food, the service is fantastic! (including the valet parking).

Thank Mike B
