    I had a groupon that I needed to use. I went on a Sunday evening, it wasn't very busy. I ordered the filet mignon with bleu cheese topping. My friend got the swordfish. They were both delicious. We ordered 3 half sides: mac & cheese, asparagus, and potato gnocchi. All were great. Our server was excellent, I think his name was Justin. He knew the menu well and explained everything. He offered suggestions and told us about things we could order that weren't on the menu. He was attentive and very professional.

    This was my second time at 801 Chophouse and it didn't disappoint. I will say I was a bit more prepared for the pricing than I was the first time I dined there several years ago. The service and food is always amazing. I had the double bone lamb chops and shared grilled asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes with my boyfriend who had a 12 oz KC strip steak. The french pear martini was fantastic!

    We celebrated our anniversary at 801 Chop House and from the minute we walked in, it was special. Our table was sprinkled with confetti and the management and wait staff all congratulated us on the special day. Derrick was a superb waiter. Our menu had "Happy Anniversary" printed on it and the dessert plate had HA written in chocolate! Everyone was great. The food was outstanding - steak grilled to perfection and the soup, salad and vegetables were delicious. They made this an incredibly special evening for us....

    Good steaks but the service was slower than expected. And here in KC they are KC strips, not NY strips! Wonderful decor that payed homage to the KC Stockyard history - that was very nice to see. Sides are served family style and are huge and plenty to share. Very nice wine list.

    While the service was exceptional the food was lacking. The Sangria lacked flavor and tasted watered down. The scallops were fishy and had to be sent back. The caprese was nice with fresh heirlooms. The prime rib was good and the temperature perfect. The scalloped potatoes were undercooked and hard. My husbands steak was extremely dry and not very tender.

    801 Chophouse is a meat and seafood lover's restaurant - if you can afford it. Each item is priced separately - but portions are large - very shareable. The salads were delicious, the steaks tender, and sides were delicious. We took about half of the meal home for a second meal the next day - so did have two meals for the high price. Very elegant place with great service.

    I have been wanting to go to 801 for quite a while and just never got around to it. "It's kind of expensive" is the excuse that I used. And it was, however the bone on filet with a side of brussel sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes was quite possible one of the best meals I have had in KC and I have lived here all my life. (And yes I have been to, Ruth Chris (now closed), Herford House, Jess & Jims and all the other steak places.) I can't wait to go back. Oh by the way the service was excellent, they have a great selection of bourbons and a great atmosphere. The only complaint I have is they put too much lemon in the cheesecake but what fun would it be if you couldn’t find at least one thing to complain about

    I was at the convention center with some friends and we were looking for a good steak place. We were happy to see that they are within walking distance of the convention center. The atmosphere was nicer than most restaurants that I have been to. We had a party of 5 and they gave us a nice private room. Outstanding wait help and wonderful food. My steak had a great flavor... a tiny bit over the temp I requested but sill pretty good. Its a bit pricey but worth it for a once in a long while visit.

    This is overall a very good restaurant. I was very hesitant to order the bone in filet. They are very difficult to prepare properly, I asked my server and she assured me it would be done correctly. I ordered medium rare plus which I was told would be a warm-hot red center. When I received it the center was red and below room temperature, actually cold. Very disappointing. The rest of the meal was great, they did not charge me for the steak which was nice. I might come back especially for the wine list, but I would not order a bone in Filet.

    801 was a terrific place for our anniversary. The food, service and atmosphere was great. The 36 oz. Ribeye was a monster eith a 24" bone attached. I felt like Fred Flinstone. The meat melted in your mouth. We also had the hashbrowns with cheese and it was delicious as well as the Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream on top. A memeorable evening of fine dining.

    My husband and I have ate here twice now and have been impressed both times. Being from NE I am very particular about my prime-rib and have not found any place in KC that I can enjoy a good cut. Until NOW!! Melt in your mouth, perfect! Don't need to add a thing to it. Service was wonderful. Never needed to ask for anything, but you can enjoy your company without being interrupted every 10 minutes. Highly recommend..especially for those special occasions.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and it was wonderful. I let them know ahead of time it was a special occasion and they had decorative confetti on the table and the menu was headed with an anniversary greeting. The service was outstanding and the food even better. The sides were generous and our entrees cooked perfectly to order. The only caution is if you are looking for a quiet restaurant be careful not to reserve a table on the same night as an event at the Sprint Center. The restaurant was full and noisy until after 8:00 when the concert began. If you are going to reserve a table for the same night, just make it later in the evening. No matter, the food was great and the drinks superb. We had a wonderful anniversary!

    We go to 801 Chophouse on special occasions. On this occasion, we were celebrating my husband's birthday. Upon arrival, we were shown to our table and it was decorated a bit and the menus were customized in honor of my husband's birthday. They are also very accommodating, as we frequently share meals or salads and they always split it in half in the kitchen, so we don't have to do it at the table.

    We went for our 15th anniversary and had great service. We went really early so we were probably the only ones in the restaurant at the time. The food was very good. The only down side, for us anyway, is that it is a pricey restaurant. So, this is not a place that we can frequent very often.
