Pierpont's at Union Station reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Decent but not a Fav.
    AMAZING
    Dined on 7/27/2013
    My filet was cooked great but lacked flavor. We have been here twice and both times our view was the kitchen & service staff. Sitting by their work area creates a ton of traffic. Excellent service! Just don't think it is worth the money compared to other local places. Union Station is a neat environment. Maybe lunch or drinks at the bar, skip dinner.

    Celebrated our 1st anniversary at Pierpoint's. Great location! Union Station is a uniquely beautiful place! Attentive service. Delicious food. Made for a great dinner! Enjoyed complimentary anniversary dessert too!! My wife and I the filet mignon and grilled salmon. Both were wonderful. The salmon was nicely cooked and deliciously paired with gnocci and a variety of mushrooms. The filet had a wonderful Grand Marnier demiglaze and was tender like it should be. We loved the fresh sourdough bread too! We'll be back!

    Our dining experience did not live up to previous evenings. One dessert was not available due to a truck delivery problem. The music was not appropriate for dinner and too loud. After three requests, the waiter did adjust the music and volume. He also made a mistake on our friends' bill and KC Passport and charged one glass of wine to the wrong couple. Since we had suggested the restaurant, it was a bit embarrassing.

    Pierpont's is one of my favorite KC restaurants. Located in Union Station, it's a great place to take out of town guests. Beautiful surroundings, tastefully restored. Food was great - the vegetarian dishes as well as the steaks. Also, $6 martini's in the lounge before dinner.

    One of the reasons we enjoy PIerpont's is the service. Prior to dinner we had drinks at the bar and as always the service was fantastic. The same holds true for our service in the dining room. John did an excellent job. We will be back.

    The food in this establishment is always excellent. Wine pairings are added fun for those so inclined. The ambience is exceptional. Union Station and Pierpont's is mystical, if not ghostly. You must experience the wow factor Pierpont's has to offer. Walk around the station, have a cocktail at the bar then dine and you'll keep wanting to come back..We always include dinner at Pierpont's in our itinerary when visiting Kansas City. Sunday's offer discounts on wine but lunch or dinner any day of the week is a privilege Parking out front is free to diners

    I spent countless hours looking for a romantic restaurant that was not a chain, and unique. When i found Pierponts, i was a little nervous about the prices, but thought it was fit a special occasion, and we could make it work. The waiter was outstanding, he took his time explaining the menu to us from the specials, down to the drink list. Then the food. I had a seafood soup dish that was out of this world. My wifehad a lobster tail casserole that wad to die for. I could not have been more impressed from the speedy service, down to the good quality.

    Place is fair, the ahi tuna was terrible(sent it back), shark fair, soup okay. The best thing was the warm, crusty bread with butter. Certainly not the seafood experience we were anticipating. The manager did come to apologize for the tuna, which was the classy thing to do. We will not be dining there again.

    Ambiance and service were outstanding. Surprisingly, even though we have been at Pierpont's many times before, the food was not as good tasting as in the past. We would certainly go there again but perhaps ask more questions about the various food choices so that our food choices are as outstanding as the ambiance and service.

    What a lovely, historic venue! Our food was very good, though I'd hesitate to say excellent, and we had excellent service. It was a treat to be in the historic train station. Of course, it is noisy simply because of the gorgeous tiled floor and high ceilings, all adding to the ambience.

    Came here for a birthday dinner with my fiancé. Service was great but the food was so so. My steak was cold and wasn't that good which was surprising as this is a seafood//steakhouse. Might go back but wouldn't order a steak. This wouldn't be my first choice of restaurant near downtown KCMO. However, the location is awesome because Union Station is beautiful.

    Located 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.

    Always 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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 6/8/2013
    We 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! :)

    My 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.
