Description: 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.

“This is a top of the line steakhouse and a very special place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2009

My fiance and I went there for dinner on 5/24. We have been there before and we find this to be a GREAT steakhouse and has to be one of the finest restaurants in the midwestern US. The food, service, and atmosphere are first class. It can be pricey with drinks...but remember this is about as good as it gets. It is located in the Country Club Plaza area of KC.

“Great Food and Service but Some Ragged Edges”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2008

Drinks and Bartender: 5-Stars. Perfect Manhattans and Martinis. Bartender stopped by our table later to check on us. Classy.

Food Quality: 4-Stars. Caviar fresh, but lame presentation. Caprese Salad OK, but only two lonely slices of Mozzerella. Porterhouse steak done perfectly. Tenderloin and Lobster excellent with large pieces of lobster claw. Au Gratin potato side-dish fantastic. We drank our dessert.

Service: 5-Stars. Waitress was a doll: sunny personality, attentive, but not overbearing.

Ambiance: 3 Stars (The place has started to look a touch ragged-the dining room chairs suck and must be designed to turn tables quickly, because they are not "sit back, have a steak and a cocktail" comfortable as an upscale restaurant should have. (Insist on a booth).

Also, I'm all about casual dress, but perhaps they could enforce a minimal dress code? There were people there in shorts and KU t-shirts (Is this Applebee's?).

I realize that KC is not NYC, but it shouldn't be too much effort to throw on a polo shirt and a pair of dockers to take your wife out to dinner. No wonder the KC ladies were so easy to impress back when I was single.

“Although I am not a huge...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2008

Although I am not a huge steak lover, this place always impresses me. The service is impeccable, the steaks are well seasoned, the winelist is pretty diverse. The non-steak options are tasty, particularly the tuna. I also recommend the lobster mac and cheese as a side dish, decadent!

Great steaks, though certainly not the best. Need more options for the non-red-meat diners. Terribly expensive but purely wonderful service. And the Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake is absolutely divine. DIVINE.
