    Great food, check. Great atmosphere, check. Great music from local favorites, check. My wife and I have chosen the Gas Light for several special occasions. Their food portions are full, but not over the top, and the pricing is on par with others in its class. The food selections are not the most creative, but I do not choose to go here to get outside the box. We go for the consistency. The Cajun Chicken is juicy, never over cooked, delicious! Their Jazz Room is the place to dine in my opinion. The lighting is great and they have a dance floor for that extra touch of romance. The sound levels are well tuned. You will not have to yell in conversation in order for people to hear you. Service was good both times we dined.

    We took friends to Gaslight Grill last Saturday to experience, not only excellent cuisine with a wide variety of choices, but also the ambience with a table near the jazz combo and access to the dance floor. My partner and I go there often because the music is not earsplitting and is the type that older folks danced to in their youth. You will always find us here on New Year's Eve. Service is excellent, and the owner, Dick Hawk, greets everyone personally. Gaslight Grill is a unique place in a city filled with good restaurants.

    Myself, wife, son, daughter-in-law and 15 month old grandson – Expected a more-stuffy environment; it was casual and inviting to our liking. My son and I had 10 oz. center-cut filet mignon (MR); cooked to perfection; first-rate cut; not since 1986 in Washington DC have I had a steak that good! PERFECT. Ladies had crusted-salmon; same accolades. All accompanied sides were fantastic as well. Wonderful waiter; support staff – cannot say enough good things. We will return to the Gaslight Grill many times to come. I can still taste the steak!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the food at Gaslight. The steaks enjoyed by my dinner party(strip, filet, & ribeye) were all excellent flavor and very juicy. Side dish portion size was generous compared to other high end steak houses. Gaslight is a top 5 steakhouse in my opinion for the KC metro area. Service was good; waiter has no issues with getting one steak re-fired which was ordered medium but was delivered medium rare. The jazz music is nice, but you may not want to sit too close to the band if you intend to carry on a conversation.

    Initially this started off great! Reservation made, we were called to clarify ambiance was desired. Our birthday party of 7 was placed in a private area to allow conversation, but the table was so large it actually inhibited it. Our waiter was wonderful. Service slow tho to be expected for a holiday Sat. evening. Veggies good-crisp green beans, asparagus grilled past al dente. One diner was forced to return steak cooked well NOT med. rare tho. Desserts limited but good as well. Experience was soured by finding that a second groupon would not be honored as implied, however- fine print allowed the use of two for parties over 5, but they would not honor the second 4/$120 as it was for only 3. NO offer to mitigate their unclear communication.

    First time we went two years ago everything was great. This time Hostess seated us in an area the waiters had blocked off, as such took 30 minutes and me going to grab a waiter before we got served. Once served the service was good, they comp'd our two appetizers to cover the delay. While they have an extensive wine list they did not have a rather popular wine one if our party wanted, The food was good not great and i don't think worth the price. Jury is out as to whether we will return.

    My boyfriend and I ate here for the first time and absolutely loved it! We sat in the back room with the live jazz which made the meal quite romantic. We were seated promptly and our server was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious! The humus trio appetizer was a great way to start the meal. The steaks were cooked to perfection as well. The owner even made his way around to every table, taking the time to introduce himself and make sure we were taken care of. Overall it was a memorable evening!

    Not romantic like we thought it would be. You have to ASK to sit in the back room, which is fairly small. The back room is where the live music is, but they don't tell you that when you make your reservations. We sat in the main dining area. Super loud. Everyone's voices echoes. We sat beside a loud drunken table of old people. Our waiter was very lacking. We ran out of beverages 3 times. He could have been new. The food was average. My steak was dry and over cooked on the edges. It was ordered medium. My husband's starter salad never came out with his meal. The carrot cake dessert was just a dry muffin sliced and layered with a too sweet cream cheese frosting. I'm glad we had a Grouoon. I wouldn't go back. It was our anniversary.

    Food was just fair, prepared well but I expected a better quality steak for $50. 3 of the 4 drinks were good but the Bailey's after dinner drink was watered down. Service was good and friendly except one of the managers that took our Groupon and deducted it from the bill but never came back with a detailed receipt, we just got a debit card receipt from our server, that didn't quite add up. It will be a while before I come back.
