We enjoy 801 every year to celebrate my husband's birthday, as well as our daughter's - it's a special occasion for us. This year, we were seated in a semi-private "room" and we absolutely loved it! Thank you so much 801, I hope to get this same room next year!

Absolutely Fantastic!!!

I will say quite pricey and the side dishes are alacarte priced only but they are family size so that helps!
Great service and attention to details. Made my husband's birthday dinner a blast

Meat quality excellent. Ordered and got a rare prime rib that was cooked to perfection. The french fries tested too much after oil. My partner had ordered medium rare lamp chops and got medium to well done. They owned up to the mistake. However, this disrupted dinner with me eating and him waiting for his replacement. For a restaurant of this price level, such mistakes should not happen. The appetizers (beef tartar and crap cake) were tasty. Good wine selection but the offered wine was too young and most of them overpriced. A revisit is unlikely.

This was our first visit to 801 Chophouse. This place is on the pricey side (approximately $125 per person including wine, food, tax and tip), but the food was excellent and the service was top notch. In Kansas City everyone expects an excellent steak and 801 Chophouse doesn't disappoint. In the future we'll probably reserve this place for special occasions.

For the cost of our meal I was expecting the steak to be out of this world. It tasted good, yes. However, I have grilled the same quality taste and tenderness on my own grill at home. For a $60 dollar steak I was expecting so much more

We've been several times before and specifically went to celebrate my birthday because we have always had such a good meal. My steak was not cooked properly and the au gratin potatoes were hard as a rock on top from the over cooked cheese. The manager apologized and said she would take care of our bill but still used my $100 Groupon to pay for our meal. She did give us a $25 gift card to come back to try again. We may and we may not. That would barely cover two drinks.

For my husband’s birthday, we met friends to have dinner & celebrate. What a perfect place as we are all eating “low carb”. James was our server & he did an excellent job of taking care of our needs & wants. Our meals were prepared to our specifications & were served hot. We ate berries for dessert & James even had them write Happy Birthday in chocolate on the plate. Both couples used their Groupon. Lovely evening.

Food was good, but not great. It is pricey, and I knew that going in, so no fault of the restaurant there. I just wouldn’t rate them in the top 10 steakhouses In which I have dined.

Our experience at 801 was outstanding! The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was beautiful. Due to the large size of our party, they offered to put us in their wine room at no extra charge since it was not too busy on Tuesday night, which really made the experience that much better for my clients. Amazing (but pricey!) wine selection. Highly recommended!!
