801 Chophouse – Kansas City
Our server, Camille, madeOur server, Camille, made the whole dinner experience delightful. She made an excellent recommendation for a wine to go with our meal, and informed us that we may want to split side orders, since they're very large. And the steaks were incredible!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than a "Chop House"Very pleasantly surprised that a "chop house" in the entertainment district can be a classically designed restaurant. The service was good. We went on a Sunday evening (pre-concert at the Sprint arena) and had the prix-fixe prime rib dinner with 3 courses. Excellent prime rib, tender and savory. What a treat.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWONDERFUL, WONDERFUL FOODWONDERFUL, WONDERFUL FOOD BUT SAVE FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS...VERY EXPENSIVE.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic restaurant for businessFantastic restaurant for business or pleasure-you will NOT be disappointed.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to 801 (thisWe have been to 801 (this location and the Leawood location) four times now. Each time, we come away impressed with the quality of food, ambiance and most importantly, service. I would highly recommend 801 for anyone celebrating a special occasion or if you just like great ambiance and great food.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ...until the last few minutesI was with a group of 10 people and we were placed in a private room. The server was very knowledgeable of the menu and did a nice job in helping order appetizers for the group. All of the group very much enjoyed the evening until we got to the desert portion. We waited over 20 minutes for the deserts to be delivered after they were ordered without any explanation. Also, when we were leaving the restaurant, we had to again wait for over 20 minutes for our cars to be retrieved from valet. If the area had been full of people, I might have anticipated a wait, but that was not the case the evening we were there. While not in the control of the restaurant, it did impact our overall experience.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place! We had aLove this place! We had a group of 10 dining for a business dinner and it was beyond impressive! The GM was outstanding to work with and insured me the evening would be flawless! Food was perfectly prepared, service was attentive, professional and warm (His name was Greg) without being intrusive; what more could you ask for? This is the only place in KC I will host clients for dinner of this caliber. Well done 801!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great service.Good food, great service. Steaks are excellent. Calamari is way too much food for 2 people though so be warned. Couldn't finish our steaks because of this but overall a good dining experience. Location was sub-optimal due to proximity to the Sprint Center and we happened to be there the same time as a concert, making even getting valet parking difficult.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOn Par with the Best SteakhousesReally enjoyed taking my mother here for her 57th Birthday. They made special menus that wished her a Happy Birthday on the menu. The steaks are excellent and well prepared.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's been years since I hadIt's been years since I had a steak that good. Great menu selections. The sides are more than enough to share between 2-3 people. Start your meal with a Moscow Mule, served in a copper mug. Fantastic meal all around. But with a great steakhouse experience, be prepared for great steakhouse prices. Not an everyday experience but perfect for a special occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWas very nice restaurant andWas very nice restaurant and food was excellent . And service top notch .4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe chose the 801 for our annivesaryWe chose the 801 for our annivesary dinner. This was our first visit. I had the strip, and my wife the filet. Both were excellent. The sides are huge so we shared the garlic mashed potatoes. The shrimp appetizer we shared was very good!
The decor is dark mahogany. To me, it has that old steakhouse feel. Service was top notch!
Prices are what you would expect for prime beef. We highly recommend!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM801 ChophouseExcelent food, service was great. Of course, when you eat at a fine dinning establishment, you wouldn't expect anything but excellent. It being in the Power & Light District is just a plus. The only thing that was inconvient was the parking.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhere Europeans can enjoy US steaksAs an European in US I am constantly amazed with the quality of the beef served here. And Chophouse certainly belongs to the top tier of steak restaurants I had a chance to visit. We have been a group of 7 and enjoyed very much an opportunity to sit in a separate, confined area, allowing discussion without being disturbed. Good ambiance, very knowledgable waiter, good selection of starters, very appealing wine list, good choice of seafood and fishes (in a steak place!!!) and very well prepared meats - medium rear was truly rear and not overcooked as it is the case in most places! There were even some lamb and veal dishes available - very rear in US. Overall very good experience, worth it's price - which certainly was not on the low end.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the first time I haveThis is the first time I have used this reservation website and it is very convenient. I will use it again.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good. Quiet, relaxingFood was good. Quiet, relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a meal.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't Miss the 801 Chophouse!!801 Chophouse in the P&L District in Kansas City is AMAZING!! We frequent K.C. quite often through out the year and we have been looking for that quintessential steakhouse for some time. Many were very good but the 801 Chophouse is it!! The food is absolutely mouthwateringly amazing!! Steak was perfect, and the seafood was second to none! The waitress Camille was just incredible! She was great with the kids and they thought she was great! I highly recommend the 801 Chophouse! The only reason I gave ambiance a four was because I grew up on the Hereford House on 20th and Main and as much as the ambiance was like the Herford it is a little more upscale. Which is not a negative at all! I'm just nostalgic that way. Thank you!!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGo, relax and enjoyThis is a very special restaurant. Food and service are exceptional. We save this place for once a year stop because it is not inexpensive but it is well worth the expense! Go, relax and savor the ambience and food. Wine list is quite good but the prices also reflect that. We find that the blue cheese potatoes are mouth-watering and the filet or prime Rib melts in your mouth.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
