My husband and I have been to this location a few times now. We usually request Sean as our server and were lucky to have him again for my birthday dinner. His customer service is on point. On top of that, their food is mouth-watering. We ALWAYS ALWAYS get at least one cut of prime rib because it tastes like manna from heaven! We usually pair it with the blue cheese potatoes or mac n cheese and then feast!

This is my first poor experience here. It was a typical Friday night crowd, so the noise level was high. The service was very slow- we were seated at 8 and did not get appetizers until 8:40. The dinner in total lasted 1.5 hours, and only because I asked for the check as we were finishing. Again, this is a one off experience. Usually the pace is good, and I am hoping that this doesn’t happen again. I will budget 2 hours into my evening plans just in case.

Outstanding frendly service with great classic steaks and sides. 801 staff went the extra mile for my wife's 50th birthday celebration. Thanks to all it was a perfect night.

The heirloom tomato and fresh mozzarella salad was a disappointment, at best. The tomato's were flavorless, and this time of the year there's no excuse for that. The beef, as always, was amazing. The service is always right on. This is a wonderful restaurant. But somebody please taste the tomatoes before you sell them to a customer!

We arrived before our reservation and was seated. The server was very complete and most informative regarding the food and beverages. Everyone had a smile on there face, I only wish I could get that kind of pleasure out of my employs. It was a lovely evening for two TEXANS in a foreign land.

Thanks and we will return.

801 Chophouse blew us away. I had a reservation for my Thirsty 30th birthday there. The hostess showed us to a table sprinkled with confetti, 3 personalized menus with 'Happy Thirsty 30th Birthday' printed across the top, a happy birthday card, which included a $25 gift card. The server was super friendly and knowledgeable about all the meats and wines. We both got a 12oz filet mignon medium rare. I had the truffle butter on mine and highly recommend it! The steaks were the best I ever tasted and cooked to perfection. Lastly, our dessert was the chocolate cake. It was super most and delicious! Did I mention that they included a birthday candle?!? Best birthday dinner I've ever had and I will remember it forever! Thanks, 801 Chophouse. You rock!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time and meal at the 801 Chophouse in downtown Kansas City. We took an Uber in from or hotel near the outlet stores area, I believe that area is called the Legends. Greeted right away at the door by the host. We were about 15 min. Early and we asked if we could visit the bar for a drink before dinner, no problem at all. When we finished that, we were escorted to our table and introduced to Andrew , our waiter for the evening. Andrew was Great. Went over the menu completely, and then brought a tray with sample cuts of beef and pork that are served each evening. We shared a wedge salad to start, then we ordered a 16 oz. Ribeye and a nice Filet, with Bone Marrow butter. Shared a large baked potatoe and baby carrots. We also ordered a nice bottle of Pinot Noir from Wiliamette Valley, Oregon. Meal and steaks cooked to perfection. Finished off with coffee and Creme Brûlée. Highly recommend this restaurant !

My sisters steak was supposed to be well done and it was bloody inside. My salmon was a little dry. The mashed potatoes were way too salty. We have eaten there a couple of times before and enjoyed it but this was not good

The ambience is nice, service is great and very professional. The food simply isn't amazing. It's ok, but not worth the price and don't eat here unless you like over priced meat that isn't cooked as directed.

Decided to take my husband to 801 Chophouse for his birthday. Edwin was our server and he was great! Food was amazing and my husband and son’s steak was exactly as ordered. I know it’s a steak house, but we had jumbo shrimp for an appetizer, I had fish and my son had a lobster and all of it was fresh. We will go back for sure!

We eat at 801 on special occasions. Unfortunately, this wasn't our best experience. While the prime rib had good flavor, it was very fatty -- every bite I took was 1/2 to 3/4 fat. The service was okay -- just not spectacular like usual. They also no longer have their wonderful french dressing. We will be back because we've always loved 801, but it just wasn't the experience to which we have grown accustomed. The key lime pie for dessert was amazing!

We ate there on a day when it was 95 degrees outside and it was very hot in the restaurant. There were quite a few ceiling fans but they weren’t turned on. My husband’s steak was very nearly raw, although he ordered it medium. And it took our server three tries to get our bill correct.
