The meal was good, the service was good. It was not the most amazing food I’ve ever had, so for the fairly high prices I didn’t feel that the overall experience was necessarily worth it.

Service very good atmosphere great.
The food was average at best.
Tuna was very very average.
The prime rib was frankly terrible.
I would not go back.

Mark our server provided us excellent service on a busy Saturday night. We were seated immediately by the charming hostesses and then greeted by Mark who was professional and thorough in his service. The meal was excellent! The steaks were prepared just as we asked and sides of Brussels sprouts and creamed spinach delicious.
Our first time to KC and 1 chop house and would highly recommend.

Incredible food! Service is top-notch with a very attentive and knowledgeable staff. Ambience is that of an old New York steak house. Not the least expensive option but worth every penny.

Food was amazing. We started with oysters on the half shell and could have eaten just those for the night. They were so good. We split a porterhouse steak with spinach and potatoes as sides. Loved all of it including the bread. Dessert was cheesecake with blueberry compote for my husbands birthday. Out waiter Kord did and outstanding job! Can't wait to go back.

First time at this location. Our waiter was very good! The bacon on their wedge salad makes that a top pick. Had the stripe steak and the bone in filet. Both were cooked perfectly! Will return soon!!

The service started out very poor but after talking to manager snd changing servers, the rest of the evening was excellent including the service. The food was outstanding. The fact that the manager took the time to listen to my concerns and address them made the whole experience better

We were really looking forward to our first visit to celebrate an anniversary and pre concert dinner. Arrived early for our 6:30 reservation, but weren’t seated till about 6:45. Only had time for a salad and glass of wine before we had to dart over to the Sprint Center. Really had our hearts set on a steak!

Enjoyed a meal prior to the Michael Buble concert at Sprint Center. 801 Chophouse played Michael's music all night long - what a super way to start the evening. Our greencoat, Sean, was absolutely wonderful. His recommendations were spot on. The service was fantastic. The food was phenomenal! Thanks for a great evening!

Usually a great experience, but this occasion, meant to be a special occasion, was underwhelming. Our server was incredibly rude and the cut of meat was excessively fatty. I don’t mind the noisy atmosphere bc it filled with March madness fans, and the price is always high but I don’t mind paying for excellent food and service. This was a very disappointing experience.

Pablo our server was beyond excellent. He made suggestions and went the extra mile to make my Granddaughters 18th Birthday Special. He got answers from the bartender and wrote it down for my daughter-in-law, what's in a Vegas Bomb. He was attentive but not overbearing. He's a excellent server and you should be proud to have him on your Team. We will ask for him the next time we visit. Thanks again for a most enjoyable evening with Pablo.

The food is always great. it's my favorite steak house in KC. Service was also super good. I have two things that I've noticed over the course of my 8-10 visits here: 1) they have undercooked my steak every time. Not a big deal as you can send it back, but just something to note. 2) Their red wine is served waaaay too warm. It should be served below room temperature -- still a great experience and once you throw the wine in an ice bucket for a bit it's all good.

Server was super prompt, very attentive, but a little over the top with the crude humor
Ambience/decor is awesome
Ribeye was better when it was cooked medium (not medium rare) as suggested, but still no better than I make at home
Bread was fine. Butter was delicious
Sides were good
But overall, I've had much better, earth-shattering-steakhouse food.
I wasn't super impressed. Very expensive for an above average meal.

We visited for the 1st time Saturday. We had planned a fun night out with a group of friends and chose 801 before going to a concert. We were sat in a private room which was a nice treat and quite a surprise! We lucked out having Robert as our server. He was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and treated us like royalty. Thank you for a lovely evening. We will definitely be back.

Sean M. Was our waiter and probably one of the most professional and knowledgeable servers I've ever had! He had recommendations all across the menu, from how he personally enjoyed the marrow bones we ordered, to the salad choice, down to the entree. He was very attentive to our table but not overwhelmingly so while we enjoyed a rare date night out. We shared their special 24 oz bone in strip steak and while we loved all of the rest of the food choices we made, the steak was over done to my preference. I will definitely go back to 801 Chophouse as I have had other previous experiences that I highly enjoyed. If you are making the effort to go to the 801 Chophouse KC location, be sure to request Sean; you will be glad you did!
