 (Nashville)·Dined 4 days ago

The four of us were honestly disappointed in our dinners. The steak that I had was not as good as the one I frequently eat at our local steakhouse. The fish that someone at our table had was undercooked. The hash browns were disappointing. Again, not even close to the hash browns at local steakhouse. The salads were excellent as well as the desserts. The server did an outstanding job.
I have previously dined at the original 801 Chophouse in Des Moines and this one was not to the high standard that I enjoyed at the Des Moines restaurant.

I eat here a lot but the past two times my crab cakes have not been as warm as I’d like. Besides that this is one of my top recommendation for sea food and steak.

The service was outstanding and the food was very good but the atmosphere is a bit stuffy and reminds me of an 80's movie with the big gold bull in the middle of the dining room. Just felt like Gordon Gekko was going to walk in.

Has been an outstanding spot; however, food (steak) prep the last 3 visits has been off — twice overcoooked & once undercooked. Issue was acknowledged & cost credited, but preferred to have the properly prepared steak. It’ll be awhile before a return visit.

NYE dinner we were seated without a wait. The restaurant was full. The cocktails were delicious. I had the medium rare bone in filet with foie gras torchon and truffles topping along with a sauce that was all recommended by our server. It was an excellent choice. My husband had the veal chop that was also perfect. Half Ceasar salads each, shared broccolini, Zinfandel and port for dessert. The service was without fault even on such a busy occasion. The atmosphere is elegant. This is a classy restaurant that has never disappointed us.

Excellent Steak House with interesting variations of sides and appetizers. Definitely a restaurant for the "expense account" or independently wealthy for those wanting to eat there more than once a year.. My son's steak was $110 which I almost choked on when I saw the bill the explanation was it was "Dry Aged" which is crap, Capital Grill sells prime dry aged steaks all day for $60 to $70. Definitely would recommend for special occasions, but watch out for the price on non-menu specials.

Very nice place to take a date or if you want a really good steak. If you want medium rare you might want to order it rare as mine was closer to medium. It still tasted great so there was no way I'd send that back. It was fairly pricy but the quality of food is certainly worth it.

Having been to the 2 KC locations several times, I expected the same caliber of food. KC is definitely better. The salad was the best part of the meal by far, and for the price the rest was not worth it.

Having early dinner prior to an event .
Not everyone ordered drinks and waiter seeemed less than happy. We shared an entree and he never offered individual plates. He also wanted to clear everything quickly. The check was actually “dropped” in the middle of the table.
The hostess was great. However, the overall experience negative due to our waiter. Not every meal has five courses.

Although pricey, you get what you envision from this restaurant. From the extravagant wine list and handcrafted cocktails to their great food, this place went far beyond my expectations. They managed to master steak and seafood both, as well as dessert. Their wait staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the food. We had a small wait for our dessert, something we didn't notice until one of the staff members brought it up, and was reprimanded with some port; which we both enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is wanting a nice date night out on the town and tell them that their chocolate souffle is to die for!

Overall, a good solid steakhouse with a well-appointed dining room and bar. our service was great, food was good, but wine program is over-priced for most decent wines compared to most major metros of US (NYC, SF and CHI excluded). barman was very good (demeanor and ability). would return for another meal.
