Nice restaurant, good atmosphere, excellent food quality. The best part of our experience was the service by Chris, he was very attentive and his timing for apps, drinks, dinner, and dessert was perfect. Chris should be recognized for his outstanding service and excellent representation of 801.

The only downside to our experience was a few items that the restaurant was out of, oysters, specific wine, and garlic mash potatoes.

I always had great food & service at this location. Everyone is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Our server was Sean and did a great job. I had a shrimp cocktail, tomato & onion salad, 16 oz. strip, baked potatoe, cream spinach, and split a piece of chocolate cake. I had plenty to take home and enjoy the next day. Everything was well prepared. The atmosphere is really nice, but still affords plenty of privacy.
Every time I dine there I find myself thinking about who I'd like to invite for my next visit!

The ambience and service were excellent! So was the valet parking. However, for the cost, the side dishes in particular were just average. The garlic mashed potatoes were almost flavorless and watery. The lobster was nice, but we inadvertently were given two medium sized ones and charged for this rather than the single large one we each ordered. My husband caught this, and they were very accommodating at correcting it. Overall for the cost, we won’t likely return. Our experience may have been different had we ordered steak or appetizers, as their menu is great; we are fairly predictable eaters though!

It’s extremely expensive for what it is. I enjoy a good steak but mine was over cooked. I’m very disappointed in the price. I’ve been there multiple times before but this time wasn’t a good experience.

The drinks were great! However we didn’t get to try any of the food or anything because an electrical fire shut down the block. But the staff was great and provided awesome service despite the situation.

Enjoyed the Mishima Delmonico and A5 wagyu. The A5 was literally the best steak I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. Service was great and love the interior. Will definitely return when in town again.

We have dined at 801 Chop House on previous occasions and decided to dine there as a part of our weekend trip to Kansas City. We were somewhat disappointed. We made a reservation and were greeted by a pleasant hostess. A server brought us menus and took our drink order. A few minutes later, we ordered - Halibut, KC Strip, blue cheese potatoes, Broccolini and a half order of onion rings. Most of the food arrived after a slight wait. Steak was perfect, halibut was perfect but Broccolini was underdone and tasteless and the potatoes were soupy. When the onion rings finally appeared, the outside was clearly underdone and there was uncooked batter on the inside. No biggie we asked to have them removed from the bill. When the bill finally showed up (after a couple of games of Hangman) onion rings were still on it so I asked again. Waiter showed up to take payment and I asked again to have them removed. Finally after the third try viola they were removed.

We have had good experiences here in the past but this time it was only so-so, They seem to have lost sight of the fact that fine dining is as much about service as it is food. Sorry to leave a mediocre review but the truth is the truth.

I treated my boyfriend for his birthday on 7/9/21. Veronica, the host was great! Andy, our server was also amazing. The only issues I had was that the a/c seemed to not be working. My boyfriend was swearing profusely the whole time at dinner. We we left, I touch his back and it was completely drenched in sweat. I had even been sweating while at dinner. I was extremely dissatisfied with that :( We had been looking forward to eating at 801, but left extremely disappointed. The food was great though…

We recently dined at 801 in KC to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. To say the evening was spectacular doesn't do it justice. From the beginning, enjoying Michael's cocktails at the bar, then being escorted to our specially decorated corner table to enjoy a truly outstanding dinner, being attended to and served by Cord and Morgan with such professional attention to every detail, the experience was everything we could have hoped for. My wife and I, due to our work, have been privileged to dine in many fine establishments across this country and also around the world. We gave 801 five stars in every category because they more than earned them! Highly recommend!

My wife and I dined here for dinner on Wednesday July 6th. Overall service was good. Side dishes and dessert were excellent, but both the Kansas City strip and the ribeye were good but that’s about it. This was not a preparation issue but rather a meat quality issue. I understand the restaurant states they use only “Prime” beef. My wife and I have dined at many fine restaurants across the country and this did not meet the quality we would expect.

All that being said it was still a very nice meal. The only true negative that we could not get past was the lack of any dress code standard. We were seated in the corner by the bar and had the opportunity to observe everyone entering. Multiple individuals were seated wearing flip flops, cargo shirts and t-shirts. Get your act together on this one. Either enforce a strict dress code or miss out on my business. This was the issue that will prevent us from returning.

We had a fabulous meal. It lasted 2.5 hours not because of slow service, but we enjoyed cocktails, appetizer, main course, and dessert. The beef carpaccio was superb with fresh arugula and the shrimp cocktail was full of extra large shrimp. Main courses were all tasty, particularly the bone in filet special with the cognac poivre sauce. Scalloped potatoes were excellent. Finished with the olive oil cake and chocolate souffle. Service was outstanding throughout the meal. We'll certainly return!

Went to 801 Chophouse KC for my 10 year anniversary dinner and the food was AMAZING but the service was even better. Custom menus and a decorated table set the perfect mood for what ended up being an absolutely amazing experience. 100% will return to this specific location.
