    We were staying for a special weekend and expected the ambiance to be much better, the ribeye was average, the prime rib was ok, but half the portion was fat, for the price we could have enjoying a better experience.

    The food and service were amazing. I went with the 8oz filet and asked that they add those onion strings on top because they are my favorite. They were very accommodating. For the appetizer we decided on something different and had the suck tacos...wow! Such a burst of flavor. Everyone def needs to go and check out Journey!

    Our second visit to Journey started off on a great foot by Tanja, the manager, offering me a sweater because I was chilly, and it only went uphill from there. Even as I write this, I am dreaming of the Prime Rib. My scallops were excellently cooked, and we even got to meet the chef. This was our second trip back, because after our first, we kept talking about going back, but it is a bit of a haul from Waldo. However, we were on our way back from the airport, and decided to go back. I am so glad we did! Thank you for an amazing experience.

    Nice place with excellent service from hostess to server and the manager even checked on us. Wines by the glass are limited, steaks were good (we have been before and had Prime Rib - served Fri and Sat and it is excellent!) Everything was served hot and timely. Crab bisque remains salty, lacks crab but its made with cream...

    Gave Service a less than Excellent because the server was new. At least I hope he was new. He 1. did not know the specials - had to read them off 2. placed the 'tab' on top of the bread basket (instead of the table). 3. Took orders all around us, but failed to refresh our drinks. I have never been a server, but these little things stood out to me.

    The filet was the best steak I've ever had. The waitress Patricia was super nice and made sure my wife was happy with every part of her meal. It was our five year anniversary and the manager had a free dessert sent to our table. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!

    Open table reservation wasn't found. Food was OK but very pricy. Had the prime rib which was a decent size and cooked to order, but had lots if fat and a strange coating for beef, rosemary maybe. BBQ ribs were good with a spicy rub and a really sweet sauce, a full slab...huge. Wine selection was fairly small but adequate. Service was decent.

    Dined on 5/9/2014
    We wanted a nice place with a causal atmosphere, yet a place we could dress up to spend our anniversary out. We also wanted very good food and service that was close to where we live without fighting traffic. We found that at Journey, the waitress was very helpful and available. The only complaint if you can call it a complaint was it was a little too dark. :) But perhaps that is my aging eyes. :):) For me four stars is very very good I rarely if ever give anything or anyone 5 stars that would have to rate an absolute perfect. :) Thank you

    I have had dinner here several times, and have always had excellent service, as well as excellent food. Unfortunately Friday night's dinner did not fare as well. I have no idea what the problems were concerning our meal, nor do I care. When I spend $160.00 plus tip for a meal, I expect GREAT service and HOT food. It will be a long time, if ever, before I eat here again. This is The Argosy's premier restaurant, unfortunately, I've had better service and hotter food at their buffet!!!!

    1) Argosy Casino has smoke smell from the front door. It's nothing new at Argosy but bears mentioning. 2) We made reservations on-line thru OpenTable. We still waited 20 min because "previous tables were lingering" according to the host, we were offered no free drinks for the inconvenience and--worse--were finally seated at a lone table by the kitchen. "So much for reservations" was my brother's comment. 3) The service was lukewarm, at best, and so was the food. A seafood pasta was good. The steak was far from the best in KC. Or anywhere else, for that matter. 4) The prices are high. If you want a $50 steak, choose Capital Grille. Frankly, I'm being generous with the second star in the Journey rating.

    Our Valentine Day dinner was quite good. My wife and I shared the two fish dishes on offering that evening; both were good. Oddly her asparagus was very well prepared, while mine not so good. Aside from that issue, all other aspects of the meal were just fine. Service was timely and professional in all respects.
