Pierpont's at Union Station
Nice eveningThe service was outstanding. I ordered a steak very well-done and it was brought to the table rare. I had to send it back twice and the waiter was very gracious about it and removed it from the bill. This is still our favortie special place!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAsk to sit in the main roomLocated at the Railway station, this location calls for a charming evening reminiscent of days gone by. The menu and the wine list can certainly support that. The main room as we walked through is stunning. Unfortunately, we got seated in a small room at the back of the restaurant which lack the grandiose atmosphere of the main room. We definitely enjoyed our meal but if you thre because you like railway stations, the main dining room would make the experience all the better.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing serviceOur waitress was Amy and she was absolutely amazing. Went there for my birthday and it was great. The food was delicious, wine was tasty. I would go back again solely based on Amy, she was very accommodating and friendly and made my birthday great!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSloooooow WaitressOur waitress was super slow. The evening took 30 minutes longer than it should have.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful place toAlways a wonderful place to dine. Love the small (those are SMALL?) plate options. Service was notably slow Sunday evening....I'm guessing because of the "Fountains" rally outside during the day no one could park there until 6p, and thus arrived pretty much all at the same time. I really appreciated the fine customer service.....I received a call on Friday to alert me to the fact that there would be no parking until after the rally was over. Another reason to support Pierponts.....they are always thinking of their customers.......now, if they'd only bring back those delicious empanada appetizers!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined with our 13 yearWe dined with our 13 year old to celebrate her spectacular school year. She hadn't experienced Pierpont's before, but wanted seafood and "something special". The hostess and server went out of their way to congratulate her and make her feel special. She even tried the tasting menu and was so excited to experience what she called "the perfect bite". The entire dinner was delicious and the service was appropriately attentive, giving us private time to talk but being available and checking in without interrupting. We love this place for special occasions, but I have also dined here for a business lunch and it was also good. Highly recommended! :)6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dining experienceThe food was well-prepared and delicious. Service was very good; the waiter suggested a wine that paired very well with my entrée.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMKC gemthis place never ever ever fails. one of my favorite restaurants in KC6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerPierpont's is a lovely restaurant with great food.

The food was excellent and the service was awesome. Would highly recommend!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe've dined here a number of times and have never been disappointed. But that doesn't really say it. There has never been a time where the food has not made us think "Wow". Nothing at Pierponts is less than outstanding: the food, the service, the atmosphere. Don't miss a chance to eat here.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Taste Buds Went WildI have traveled all over the world and tasted many foods from many places and this was one of those places that stands out. The crab cakes for just an example are like no other....wow...Im still smiling over them...we sat at the table and all we could do is moan with pleasure. Thank you for such an enjoyable feast...the whole meal was just as wonderful....5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Kansas City Treasure!Pierpont's is the ultimate restaurant for dining: the food, wines, ambience, and service are excellent! I ALWAYS look forward to returning! Cannot recommend it highly enough.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband,son and I wereMy husband,son and I were seated next to the kitchen door on Wednesday evening and the smell of bleach was so strong that I didn't really enjoy the first 30 minutes we were seated. After that, I'm not sure whether the bleach smell dissipated or I just became used to it. We have eaten at Pierpont's many times and have been seated in that area before and and I don't ever remember this type of odor before.We did not mention this to our server (he was great as are most all of the servers there) and the food was very good in spite of the odor.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was so accommodatingThe restaurant was so accommodating to us vegetarians! Delicious gnocchi and veggie sides. We also love the artisan cheese platter and sourdough bread! Will be back.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMunion stationgreat place to eat lunch or dinner in the surrounding of an historic old railroad Union Station. food and service were great. our second time their. would go back on my next visit to Kansas City.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrationVisited Pierpont's to celebrate with our boys the end of the school year. Had great service, great food and very relaxing evening. Great place for romantic dinner or special celebration.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time visitThe food is wonderful; I had mussels from the appetizer menu, and they were absolutely the best mussels I have ever had. The service was top notch and the experience was unforgettable. Pierpont's restaurant is amazing.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy on Saturday NightNice to see that the restaurant was busy on Saturday, it did make the setting rather loud. Food and service was, as always, great.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect BirthdayI took my wife and a small party to celebrate her birthday. I was delighted that they honored my request for a private room. We got a small room in the basement. It was beautiful and elegant, and quiet! The wine refrigerators are on the wall. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked, including four steaks. The hot stuff was hot, the cold stuff cold...loved it. Emanuel, our server gave us impeccable service, and made it a very special evening for everyone. He was there when we needed him, and not when we didn't...my definition of perfect service. He also told us a little about the history of the room. A splendid evening.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMRibeye fit for KINGOne of the best ... top of class ... fit for KING ribeyes.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceI recommend the Lobster Thermidor, the crab cake, the crab bisque, and the rasberry sorbet with lemon pistachio cake, but not the Mojito cocktail. The wine is very good. Also, the creme brulee sometime has too thick of a caramalized sugar crust but overall the food is very good to excellent. The service is top notch every time.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for date nightThis was the first restaurant we went to right after we got engaged. We decided to celebrate six months till the wedding by having a date here again.
Ambiance is wonderful, service is good. The best deal is if one person gets the three course and the other gets the four course. Then you can split a dessert.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing in another eraVery enjoyable dinner in the confines of old Union Station....lots of wood, tall ceilings, and a beautiful, huge bar.
Very relaxing with great food and drink.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM25th Wedding Anniversary DinnerMy wife and I don't need much. Just a good meal, good service and a place where the other diners are respectful of each other. We happened to be seated in a room that had a table full of Lawyers. Oh well, two out of three isn't bad. They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks and you can't teach a Lawyer good manners. The steak knives we were given really weren't needed. We could actually cut them with our forks and the service.......our server seemed to have the uncanny ability to show up right when we needed something WITH that item in hand then would promptly disappear until needed again. As if that wasn't pleasent enough, she actually would wait if we were speaking to each other rather than rudely interrupting. What a concept !5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experienceThe food, service, atmosphere was excellent. I would have given the food 5 stars, however I ordered the crabcake as an appetizer. Being born and raised in Maryland, I am very picky when it comes to crabcakes, and I was not impressed. It was thin, full of filler, and drowned in a sauce. The calamari, on the other hand was excellent. It was not chewy or rubbery, as is the case with most. To be honest, I have not found a crabcake in any Kansas City restaurant that compares with what I can get on the east coast.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMUnion Station was awesomeUnion Station was perfect. Pier point was great too.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night at PierpontsWe were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and Pierponts did not disappoint. It had warm ambiance, delicious food, and excellent service. I would highly recommend the 3 or 4 course small plate option. It was a great value and the portions were just right. After a hectic week, this was a great way to unwind (think lemon drop martini!) and enjoy a night out. We will be back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodMy husband and I went for our 5 year wedding anniversary because we wanted to try a new place. The filet mignon was one of the best I've had. My husband had the Ribeye which was good but the filet was definitely better. Kinda pricey but good for a special occasion. Everyone was very nice.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's a rare day when diningIt's a rare day when dining at Pierpont's -- whether for a business lunch, which this was, or for dinner -- isn't a delight.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways dependablePierpont's is one of those few places that delivers great food in a welcoming atmoshere attended by excellent staff every time. I dine there 5-6 times per year and have always enjoyed the experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentThe food and atmosphere was very good. It made Mother's day very special.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!We had family from Philadelphia, San Diego and Paris (IL) visiting for Mother's Day Weekend. They were thrilled with their Pierpont's experience. They enjoyed the food, the service and the ambience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a specail treatA very special place for a very special event.....
Exceptional!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy Pierpont'sIt was the 29th anniversary for my wife and I and the service and food was great.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice ExperienceThis was my first visit to Pierpont's. I decided to take my wife there for Mother's Day. She and I enjoyed it very much and would certainly go again. Go with the old saying "you get what you pay for", the prices are steep, but the quality you get makes it worth it. We are looking forward to trying out the bar for a happy hour sometime as it looked very inviting.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dealPierponts small plates menu is a great deal - 3 courses for almost the same price as a steak. The portions were a nice size and plenty of food to fill you up. Pear salad was delicious as was coffee & chili rubbed steak and the salmon with red rice. We will definitely be returning to Pierponts!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the tasting menuI love that Pierponts has a tasting menu now. The amount of food and wine was just right. The wait staff was very friendly even toward my kids. We all really enjoyed our meal.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AM50th Wedding AnniversaryIt was our 50th Wedding Anniversary

If you go make sure you try the house bisque, it's amazing.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special ExperienceMy wife and I chose Pierponts to celebrate my retirement and our new direction in lfe. We couldn't have chosen a better way to celebrate! Dinner at a wonderful place then a Diana Krall concert following at the Midland Theater.

I was hoping to be seated at 4:00 for early dinner, but they do not start seating for dinner till 5:00 so a trip to the bar was in order and the house Merlot and very reasonably priced appetizer started my evening perfectly. This place will not disappoint.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe comw back because the foodWe comw back because the food is great, specially the blue crab and corn bisque soup.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWas seated in a back room,Was seated in a back room, and though I always request the front room, it was satisfactory, because there was a light over the table, and we were removed from the bar scene (wow! so much noise....on a Monday night!). We were the only ones in the room, but it soon filled up.....and it became noisy. No empanadas....:( but the rack of lamb was delicious (well...not TRULY a rack....4 ribs). My friend had only an appetizer crab cake, but enjoyed it.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great to see that Pierpont'sIt was great to see that Pierpont's was doing a lively business on a Monday night!
