    My wife and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary with dinner at the Gaslight Grill. Our server, Lena, was excellent and very attentive. She provided us with a complimentary dessert and champagne toast to finish off the evening. The food was very although a little more than we usually spend. We'll be back.

    This place continues to amaze. When they first opened, we were underwhelmed. Food was OK, but nothing special and place was huge and mostly not busy. How things have changed! They are busy, full and bustling and the food and service is outstanding. We thought they would have a tough time competing with the many new glitzy, hip places in Southern Johnson County. Apparently, we were wrong. Our last few visits have been rewarding and they have moved up on our priority list. Our last meal, Wild Boar in a Pinot Noir reduction and Chilean Sea Bass, were superb. Service was perfect, attentive without being overbearing. Good wine, live music (jazz, New Orleans style), good evening. The physical environment, especially the Back Room, is nothing special but the food, service and music more than makes up for it. Don't tell any more of your friends about it.

    We went with a group and one person received her food at least 10 minutes before anyone else at the table and it was supposed to be medium well and it was rare. By the time the rest of us were served, our friend was done. We mentioned something to the waiter and he didn’t seem to think it was a big deal that she was the only one that had been served. The rest of the food was good. The appetizers were good but the service was slow and not the best waiter.

    We had a private room in the back for a larger group that was located near the Jazz stage. The room was perfect, the music was excellent (not too loud) and the food was delicious. I knew that the Gaslight grill was a great place to have group events, but I will definitely go there with my family again. The bar was hopping and the whole restaurant had a warm, energetic, romantic feel. Just a terrific place!

    This is the second time we have dined here. The wine list was very comprehensive and 1/2 price on Sundays. The food was very good and the service was excellent. The only thing was one person in our party wanted a regular baked potato with the normal toppings and they could not accommodate us. The only baked potato option they had was stuffed with blue cheese.

    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 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 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!

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!!!!

The food was outstanding (some of the best steak I've had in a while) and the atmosphere was set perfect.
