    Good food, good service, good selection of menu items the baby back ribs were great. The seafood only average. A little too dark lighting to see the menu without my cell phone lighting. Hostess tried to seat us in a high traffic table back in the room we requested another table and was seated there. I felt we were put into the overflow dining area. During our dinning time two other parties refused or requested another table location. management need to remove this one table # 306 to know no one wants to sit at a table with high volume of servers foot traffic. The entertament was okay, very old jazz music ( form the 1920 to 1930s ) that would be good for people in their seventies. Kansas City has many resturant choices

    Dinner at the Gaslight Grill was amazing. We went early for happy hour, you have to get there early because it is packed. Great food and drink specials and the bar staff is very friendly and efficient. We then went to our table in the dinning room where we were treated with the best service I have had in a restaurant of this caliber in a long time. The dinning room was completely full, yet the service was never missing, great job. I had the special off menu beef short ribs over polenta. The short rib was melt in your mouth delicious with a very rich chocolate wine reduction sauce and roasted grapes over a creamy polenta. Outstanding! Others at the table had steaks and seafood. All said they were perfect. We will be back very soon.

    The service was great! Lena was a good hostess. The Gaslight Strip could have been better. The steak knives were a bit dull and the steak was a bit tough. I would return but perhaps try a fish choice next time. My wife enjoyed it, though, so that made it worthwhile.

    The food was really good, but for the second time my husband ordered the Maytag blue cheese crusted ribeye and was given a completely different entree which was really disappointing. The waiters always offer to fix, but didn't want to wait when my meal was already on the table. We also asked for a booth when being seated but was told the booths were reserved. There were several booths still open when we left.

    We noted on our Open Table reservation request that the evening was a celebration of our anniversary. We were given a nice celebratory greeting as well as a glass of Champagne and dessert "on the House". The food was excellent: promptly served, hot and tasty. Our server, Brady, was polite and knowledgeable. All in all, an outstanding experience. The jazz music was excellent as well.

    Overall, this restaurant was okay. We ordered the bone-in strip or ribeye, their house specialty, for ~ $44. My husband ordered his steak medium well and it came out medium. I ordered mine medium and it came out medium rare. The steaks were fine, but not exceptional, especially for the price and in a city with many wonderful steak houses. Both of our twice-baked potatoes were cold. Our waiter rolled his eyes when we told him this, and said that he would get us fresh, hot ones. He was fine, although twice he asked if I wanted a refill on my wine, when I was drinking scotch. These problems would have been understandable if the restaurant were packed, but it was deserted at 7 PM. We probably will not return there.

    My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, which I mentioned when making the reservation. From the hostess, to the waiter, and the owner, we were treated as special guests. It was a Sunday night and very quiet. The tables and booths are far enough apart to make for good conversation without having to yell, as we have experienced elsewhere. We could hear the jazz band in the Back Room but it wasn't too loud and it was pleasant background music. We both ordered the prime rib special and it was not only delicious but very reasonably priced! We were offered our choice of a complimentary dessert to finish off our celebration. We had the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee and it was amazing! We will definitely return to the Gaslight Grill!

    Food was outstanding, David, our waiter was most helpful in answering all of our questions and making a recommendation on the salad dressing for the cranberry almond salad, reservation timely, no waiting, very friendly, cordial staff just a wonderful experience to share with my out of town quests.meeting Dick Hawk a plus. Most eating establishments do not take time to mingle with clients. Sometimes the music a little too loud but very nice music. Would like to know the name of the vinegarette dressing used on the cranberry almond dressing --- outstanding. Will definitely be back. Thank you so so much!!!!

    My wife and I dined there for our wedding anniversary after I had been recommended by a friend and man, did it impress both of us! The food was outstanding (some of the best steak I've had in a while) and the atmosphere was set perfect. We thought the price of the food and drink was well worth it and you certainly won't leave hungry. Loved the live band and host. Definitely on my top list of fine dining establishments. Great venue!

    When I reserved our table I didn't know it was going to be "private" dinning. They put us in a room to ourselves. The food was ok for a buffet (food could have been a little warmer and I am not a big fan of powdered eggs). The selection for my family was great. A little bit of everything for all of them. I am looking forward to trying dinner sometime (Prime Rib is one of my favs).
