    We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The food was excellent, but we felt ignored by our server. There were 2 tables in our room with the same server and he kept their glasses filled, checked in, etc but not for us. We had menus for 20 minutes after ordering drinks to order our meal, then had water glasses sit empty for almost 10 minutes mid meal, then another 20 minute wait to be offered the dessert menu with empty plates and silverware at 4:00. The only thing we can figure is that we were a party of 2 and the other tables were 4 and 5. Everyone else we interacted with was gracious and helpful, so hopefully this is not a regular occurrence.

    We took our daughter out for a birthday dinner while visiting KC. This was close to our hotel and had good reviews. I signed up on OpenTable and mentioned my daughter's birthday in the "special occasion" box. When we were seated, the table had been covered with metallic Happy Birthday decorations, and the menus had "Happy Birthday" written at the top. The staff and management checked on us frequently, provided her birthday desert, and made us all say we definitely would like to return. The steaks are expensive, but were delicious. The sides were unique and huge portions.The decoration and ambience are worthy of an elite level restaurant. There was jazz music always playing. It was loud enough to hear clearly, but not so loud that we couldn't talk. Well done, 801 Chophouse!

    Simply put, I feel the menu was overvalued by 20%..it does not match the quality of a Morton's but it did in the overall cost. This is likely attributable to its proximity to the KC Convention Center

    Our service was terrible!! We waited forever for everything. We also saw others waiters bring put things like a dessert tray, giving people specials and making recommendations. Not our waiter it took 26 min for him to get us the dessert menu. My steak was way overdone when I ordered Med it wasn't even pink in parts. I will not go back 250.00 and it was worth maybe 20.00.

    There were 7 of us for a special driving birthday for my son. The food was excellent! The service was outstanding. No detail was overlooked. My son's name was even on personalized menus. We had a 6 year old and the chef made special cheeseburgers and fries for him and he loved it! Our steaks were all superb - all 6 of them and the wedge salad, creamed vegetables and desserts were all superb. The service was truly exceptional. You will pay for it, but if you want to have a completely perfect meal - this is it! The appetizers, the comfortable table, lighting and music were all perfect. No harsh lights, no harsh music. It was very tastefully done and the service was exceptional - did I say exceptional - I meant EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!!!

    We went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was outstanding and they were very knowledgeable about their drink and food menus. We started with calamari, and it was excellent. It was nice and tender. The sea bass was the best I've ever had. It was a nice, 2-inch thick filet that was light and flaky. The prices might be high, but the food and service is excellent. It is a great place to go for a celebration.

    My wife took me to 801 Chophouse for my birthday. It was a very special dinner, not something we do very often. It's extremely expensive and so it only gets on our to-do list every 1-2 years. But the price is equal to the taste. I am a steak lover and was completely overwhelmed by the flavor, texture, and presentation of our steaks. I would recommend anyone to eat here.

    3 of us dined. Ordered 2 appetizers. Calamari excellent. Maryland crab cake so good next time will order 2 for my entree and skip rest of menu. Moved from near Maryland, have longed for a good crab cake. This exceeded my expectations. Want another one NOW! Entrees; we had KC Strip bone in, cooked to tender perfection, prime rib of magnificent proportions, cooked as specified, and scallops which were ok, tender and not overcooked. Next time, crab cake only! Ordered desserts; ice cream trio, beignets and cheesecake. Beautifully presented and delicious. Our waiter was excellent, attentive without being obtrusive. Sides additionally priced making it an extremely expensive experience that for our family will only be for special occasions.

    We've eaten at the Chophouse many times and have never been disappointed. From wine to dessert and everything in between it always hits the high mark. While the beef is awesome, they do fish well too. We had the scallops and calamari appetizer for a table of 4, shared salads, filet, sea bass and the 50+ ounce tomahawk cut rib eye (shared) and all were good. We even finished off with a birthday dessert that was wonderful.

If I had to ask for a last meal the Tuscan rib eye, Potatoes Lyonnais and Brussel Sprouts would defiantly be it! Our server was a delight. However the Maître de needs to be trained to seat clients with a reservation before answering phone for more reservation.

    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.

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!

Well worth the money even being a higher priced meal. The atmosphere makes you feel important and pampered. Wonderful wine and drink selections. We will definitely be returning to one of the 801 Chophouses in the future.

    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
